I have a cold - I am not feeling very productive, and I have a cat sitting on my knee between chest and laptop. So although I should be getting on with chapter 20 of TYA (about 1,000 words of which are written, so it is coming along!)I am posting cat pics. A couple of our idiot moggy, and some of my friend's rather more upmarket ones, from my holiday.

Our cat Shaka loves to sleep in odd positions – this is him keeping S2C from writing
Skaka and S2C

and here he is using the wireless router as an aid to sleep.

Shaka on line

This is my friend D’s British Shorthair Tabatha – she was the friendliest of the four cats who deigned to let me stay in their house on Skye.


This is Dougal – another pedigree British shorthair.


The two British Blues are rather shy – it took a while to get this close to them – in fact this was taken on my last evening on Skye.

Two Blues

But I took this toy out of their toy basket to play with Dougal – and lo and behold, one of the blues came to play. Not even D. could tell whether it was Rum or Mango.

Dougal and Rum – or maybe Mango

They're all lovely! I want a black one. No... a blue one. But then tabbies are nice...

I'm really quite fond of our own black with white trimmings - the white paws and whiskers help me to not fall over him when it's narly dark!

I think I may love British Blues...which is strange because I thought I'd be a black cat person... Still, Rum and Mango have got to be the best cat-names ever! I can't get over them!

Thanks for these, anyway, they were great.

They are neat names aren't they? Love the ghost sheep!

Thanks! I didn't like the icon I'd made to go to my journal - and I was missing them, along with everyone else - so now they're back! But spookier.

I'm normally more for dogs than cats, but these are gorgeous. Those British Blues look so aristocratic.

Those British Blues look so aristocratic.

They do rather don't they? This pair are a bit shy, probably because their breeder was ill when they were born, and her husband was looking after the cats as well as her, as well as what he normally did - result was the kittens got fed and watered, but very little human contact when they would usually be being socialised - but they are only young (11 months or so) and they are learning.

Aww, kitties! I love the pics of Shaka and Tabatha. Mwahaha, kitty love!

Shaka and Tabatha both do 'cute' in a big way!

Kitties! I do love cats. They're so interesting, always looking as if they have a secret.

I hope you feel better very soon, curiouswombat!

Cute kitties! I love that last one!

My poor, older cat (Katze) has developed diabetes (like the one I had of his namesake 15 yrs. ago)and now he has to get insulin 2x a day. We just started this last week, and have to take him to the vets this week, and get the does upped, I think. He's still drinking a lot of water, but at least he's not feeling so horribly skinny. Poor thing...he's the nicest cat I've ever had, but he's been hiding out in the basement with his buddy, (white Siamese, Koko) for the past 2 months b'cuz we adopted a dog of my daugher's friend's who doens't like cats, and so far I can't find another home for her!

Oh poor Katze - {{hugs Katze}}!

I love the languid way the black cat is lying sprawled on the floor in the last photos, and how the blues seem to be smooching in the one above!

D was really pleased to get a copy of the one with the two blues - they are a bit camera shy, so to catch them in such an intimate pose was a real lucky - pity it wasn't a bit clearer. And you're right Dougal is very languid looking there - actually he isn't much of a cat for dashing around, now that I think of it!

I think that's the best mode of feline being, the languid mode. I saw a good bumper sticker the other day: "Dogs have masters, cats have staff."

Our front door mat has written on it 'The cat and his household staff live here.'!
