Unless you have been living under a rock you will have seen “Keyboard Cat” – if not here is the link:
This video went viral and shows Fatso the cat skilfully playing the keyboard.
This has prompted a fantastic LEGO version which has been submitted on the LEGO Ideas website.
A nice hot cup of tea is probably one of my favourite things; so when I saw this Mugtopper I had to have it. Promising to keep tea hotter for longer, and with a cat perched on the top, it is a sweet little item. I bought this in The Range and it was under £2. I am afraid I do not remember the exact amount (and they are not on the website) but it was reasonable.
Here it is:
Close up of the little face:
A while ago I posted about Marly being scared of anything noisy and big.
A few more things have come to light with Christmas and redecorating playing a big part in discovering them:
- The Tape Measure
- The drill
Jess is still cool as a cucumber …
I have been enjoying experimenting with nail art recently (see here) and below is my latest attempt at a new fun design.
I need to work on a smoother outline for the cat thumb but I was pretty pleased for a first try.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
Firstly, apologies for the very cheesy pun in the title. I couldn’t resist!
Moving on …
I am a big believer in pet insurance … despite never having to use. I have insured Marly and Jess since I got them at a cost of £12 a month.
Let’s do the maths:
- Born 28th June 2008 they are now 5 years and almost 7 months
- I got them at 5 months
- 5 years and 2 months = 62 months
- 62 x 12 = £744
Some people may say that is a waste of £744 but in my eyes I have peace of mind. If anything happens I will have no hesitation in approving any treatment and paying an excess on the insurance will be a small cost to pay.
These pictures “sold” Marly and Jess to me in a heartbeat… How could they not!
I have been told on a couple of occasions that they don’t look like kittens – but more like moles.
Spot the difference:
Happy Wednesday everyone…
One of my favourite jumpers is this one from the “H! by Henry Holland” range at Debenhams:

Cats in glasses = winning combo!
As far as I can tell this is no longer available and I have had at least a year and a half. I decided to see if there were any other items in this collection I would like and I was not disappointed.
Today I read an article that really pulled at my heartstrings. In Obinsk, Russia, a lovely long haired cat called Masha raised the alarm and kept an abandoned baby warm in sub-zero temperatures.
While looking through some old pictures my dad came across the 3 below.
Perfect bookend poses … And I promise these were not forced poses.
It got me thinking about what actual cat bookends are available to buy …
A quick google search and I had found lots - I am a massive fan of Etsy and here is the selection they have: “Cat Bookends” search on Etsy.
For the past 3 years I have made calendars for my family. It has become a tradition now and they all expect and I enjoy making them.
The first year I did pictures to fit the months so Jess in rabbit ears for April (Easter), Marly in the garden sunbathing for August (Summer), etc etc. This was really easy to create.
Second year I picked pictures of hectic scenes and “photoshopped” Marly and Jess in each one. The aim was a “Where’s Wally” feel. This took some time and effort but it was enjoyable to do and added another level of fun to the calendar. My favourite was the Disney scene …
Jess is by the princess castle (of course) top right and Marly is ice skating with Thumper bottom right.
