The Mysterious World of the Kitten known as Saffron Noodle


I don't know why we've started calling her Noodle, it's just evolved that way. Does anyone else do this with their pets? Her name is Saffy, short for Saffron, but we call her variously; Noodle, Noodle-King, Noodle-Town, Noodle-Doodle, Saffron Walden, Walden Media, Waldo... On and on it goes.

Basil, these days gets called Grande Latte, which I admit makes even less sense.  Here he is sporting what looks like a Hitler moustache:


Onto the main crux of this post. Saffron is a weirdo and is always up to something weird. The evidence, M'lud:







I mean, seriously, what is going on?


Sometimes Basil joins in, but most of the time, he's just like 'Oh God, is it still here??':

Basil, you've got something on your nose

Apologies for the slight hiatus, been a wee bit busy. Not a lot to report here, except that every time we take Basil's picture, he seems to have something on his nose. It's not a particularly good look:



Basil has also been warming his paws in the sunshine:


And imparting some (furious) words of wisdom. He's not evil really, promise:


Young Saffy is growing all the time, and gradually leaving kittenhood behind her. She's still as mad as a bag of hammers, still has a pathetic monkey-squeak instead of a miaow, and is still the absolute queen of snuggles. We love her to bits. Here she is in some of her calmer moments:

Sad faces

Saffy has been practising her sad faces this week. She's doing pretty well:




She's been taking lessons from the grumpy master, Basil:


Then she got confused and did 'stoned face' instead of 'sad face'. Whoops:


Don't worry Saffy, I'm not going to post it on the internet or anything.

Conspirators!

Caesar must die, Caesar must die...

There's been a lot of conspiring going on this week from the looks of it. Basil has been plotting revenge and world domination:


Saffy has been plotting, ooh a nap, followed by a snuggle, maybe a snooze, and then a sneaky attack on that fluffy mouse that's been hanging around lately:


In other news, Saffy has not had a particularly good week:


Fear not, nothing serious! She's been spayed, so a routine operation and she's recovering well. The cone lasted about an hour before she managed to get one of her front legs in it too and then couldn't walk. We gave up.

You'll be pleased to hear Basil cheered up later on, after realising that revenge on this cruel world actually takes quite a lot of effort, and there may not be a ready supply of snacks.

Ooh you could be a model!

We've recently taken very excited possession of a shiny new camera, a proper little DSLR. It's fantastic. Here are Basil and Saffy engaged in a modelling competition...







Clearly Basil's exotic looks do give him the edge, I mean check out that stoic profile. However, I think Saffy should be commended for effort and getting more into the spirit of the thing with a variety of poses. Given that she wasn't bred for our looks (unlike some - looking at you big-B), she's a little stunner.

Let's call it a tie. Everybody wins!

Idiot Competition

Actually that title is probably a little harsh, it does sometimes seem like this is what Basil and Saffy have been engaged in.

Saffy's main hobby is getting into places she shouldn't be, or just getting in the way in general... oh, and chewing wires, she loves that:



She doesn't seem to have learnt anything from that time she fell in the loo before.

They both thought they'd have a go at sitting the Abel & Cole box (like, well done guys, we're meant to return that so other people can have their veg delivered in it, and now it's been catified):



Here's Basil smirking at a great joke he made:


Saffy is not too impressed with Basil's blue humour:

Lazy Buggers

Apologies for the lack of posts on here lately, had some family stuff going on, and not much to report.

Main conclusion for the last week or so is that Basil and Saffy are a pair of lazy gits, I've barely seen them stood up:












In other news, Saffron is a terrible gossip, and Basil got a funny ear:
