CATS ON TUESDAY


CATS ON TUESDAY

No, you are not on the wrong blog, I only have other cats, holiday cats ! I am with my friends Anne and Doug in Eastbourne at the English coast and they still have three cats. When I first met them in London she had 6 ! Since they moved to Eastbourne in 2007, they still had four. Sadly one, Smudge, died in 2009, I called him the door mat because he always slept in all door entrances and I had to pay attention not to fall over him when I got up in the night. But at the age of 19 he decided to have enough to be in this world and preferred to go to the bridge.



But Lilli is still there now 16, unfortunately getting blind but otherwise in a good shape. The cat in the chimney is not Rosie but a figure ! I first thought it was a real cat.



Sophie is 17 and "my" cat when I am here. She recognizes me and moves immediately into the guestroom with me where she replaces Rosie who sleeps with me at home.



Lilli hanging on Anne's knees



and Pepsi at her feet. Pepsi too is 18 or 19 and besides that she lost all her teeth, she is in a very good shape. She looks like our Kim, maybe because she is an aunt of her. (or something like that, with cat families you never know). She also was a very shy cat just like Kim, but has now become very social with the age and I am even allowed to pet her.



and in the evening they are all gathered around Anne waiting to be brushed.

My little darlings are all well and enjoy their holidays without me with their slave, Mr. G. who spoils them !

Sorry if I am not able to visit you all, holidays are so stressing, lol !

Such senior cats! And all looking so good. :) My cats always hide when visitors come.....

Sparkle said...

Wait a minute... you get a REPLACEMENT cat when you are visiting? Does Rosie know about this? I don't know if I would approve if my human did that.

How gorgeous they are... I think I want to make friends with someone who lives somewhere nice and has lots of cats so I can go on holiday there! By the way, I dread to think what Rosie, Arthur et al will make of these photos... other cats invading their blog!

Love your holiday cats but you must make sure to remove all holiday cat hairs before you go home. I think Arthur and Rosie might ask questions.

Hi, Gattina,
I just so enjoy being here with your cats. It's so HUMAN!
I shall start making cat blogs in a short while. For now this was pure recreation.
A normal world filed with loving cats & people in a world gone wrong.
Oh, we are still being the folks Amidala adopted. She's running a tight ship.

It's nice to meet your "holiday cats". It seems like they are enjoying life in their later years.

These kitties are very well cared for. Looks like you have kitty company on your holiday just like home. Enjoy your holiday. :)

Your home crowd will have MANY smells to investigate when you get back!

Carla said...

Have you told your kitties your off loving other cats??? They might not approve. My animals would love a bedtime brushing!
