Basil is Gmork

I recently watched The Neverending Story with Basil and since then he's been practising his Gmork faces. Trust him to identify with the bad guy.

This still needs a bit of work to be honest:




Here's what he's aiming for:

Selfies with Saffy

Young Saffy is edging towards teenagerdom now, so of course, she's been roping us into taking selfies...


Some are more 'interesting' than others:


Very occasionally, Basil joins in too...


... but mostly he prefers to go solo. He said he's thinking about signing up for Cat Tinder and what did I think of these?




I told him I thought the last one was maybe a bit much. He's still working on his photography technique:

Winter is Coming

After a mild autumn, we're finally starting to feel the chill here in Hertfordshire. Basil and Saffy are in full winter mode, using any means they can to keep warm... beds, laps, patches of sunlight, piles of laundry etc...

Don't get me wrong, the heating has been on, but as a cat you can never really be too snuggly.

Judged

Basil and Saffy have been judging you...





... And you have been found wanting. Basil is very disappointed:

ZZZZzzzz....

News of the month is that Saffy has turned out to be an excellent mouser and totally ninja hunter. Not that this is particularly desirable as far as the household is concerned, we take more of a 'live and let live' approach to most pests, but I can't fault her achievements in this area.

I don't know whether you'll be disappointed or relieved that I have no photographic evidence of Saffy's new found skills. I suspect the latter.

Instead, as it's much easier to photograph, here are the various positions in which Basil and Saffy have been sleeping/relaxing of late.









My personal favourite is the "I'm ready for my manicure" pose:

Mini Cat Fight

Basil and Saffy had a (very) little fight in the garden the other day...

An update

Happy International Cat Day everyone! Of course, anyone who actually "owns" a cat knows that every bloody day is International Cat Day as far as they are concerned.

Apologies for the lack of posts of late. Busy busy, blah blah... Here's a quick update on what Basil and Saffy have been up to.

Basil has been helping with the gardening...


Going to the vets (just his annual jabs, don't worry, it's not Parsley all over again) ...


Swizzling about...



Trying to intervene with our travel arrangements...


Using me as a pillow...


And looking fat...


Saffy has been helping with some printing...


Murdering felt foxes...


Venturing outside...


Having a 'me party' under the sofa...


Looking puzzled (this one happens a lot, she's not the smartest cookie)...


Making herself into a sandwich...


And, also, looking fat (this is just a really unflattering angle, we're not overfeeding!)...
