Gratuitous cat update

October 6th 2014


It’s been a while since I posted about the cats! I snap photos of them every so often when they’re being extra-cute so thought I’d share some of them here.


Yoni is fully recovered from his ordeal over a year ago – he got an all-clear from the vet and no further issues since, which we’re so grateful about. It’s just possibly made him even more of a demanding diva than he was previously.

His favourite things are…


Looking ponderous while half-upside down.


His grey stripy cat friend and grey blanky

Fabric cat

Napping in my fabric stash


Napping while holding his tail


Napping rolled in a snail-like ball… napping anywhere really.


He still likes to potter outside but doesn’t venture as far any more.


Our cats are basically opposites in terms of personality – which might explain why they still don’t really get on at all. Lila is super laid-back and likes to tuck herself off in a lesser-used room (currently Josh’s study, often under the radiator in the hallway) and snooze to herself all evening. On the occasion she does want some attention, she raises her little paw in the air and purrs like crazy.

Her favourite things are…


Rolling around getting grubby


Chilling in plant pots


Wearing hats


Napping flat on her back, tail and paws in the air


Her rainbow. She also, less adorably, loves to pounce on fabric and pattern pieces when I’m sewing.

Ah cats. They keep life interesting at least!

      Thanks! Lap cats are the best, especially when it’s starting to get cold out.

    Your cats are stunning :)

    And your photography skills are brilliant, I almost feel (wish!) I could reach into the screen and touch them x

    Your cats are so adorable! We aren’t allowed pets in our building and it breaks my heart.

    Beautiful cats. I’m so pleased to read that Yoni is doing Well. I often check to see if there are any updates on him. (I emailed you at the time about my experiences with my cat) Yay for Yoni!!

    That is such great news about Yoni, what a relief, so glad to hear it and see him looking so fine. Hey – a cat post is never really gratuitous is it!
