Love this thread, such gorgeous cats! This is my cat Blaze who I took in from the street just over a year ago. There are quite a few cats around, some of whom use the garden as a toilet and I was always chasing them away.
Blaze was one of them and one day I decided to give him some food as he'd been approaching me as I worked in the garden. Fatal mistake! He's now my ever present companion, especially in the garden and follows me everywhere.
He likes to sit and watch me gardening, surveying his territory and often running around the garden, ambushing me and chasing insects. He is quite young I think and very playful, and as time has passed he's also become very affectionate.
He loves snuggling up to my leg when I'm sitting on the sofa watching TV to have his nose and head stroked. This makes him ecstatic and he purrs very loudly.
On the sofa.
Guarding the garden gate.
Rolling around in the back garden
Watching the bees on the purple tansy.
Favourite scratching spot in the front garden.
When he first started coming into the garden he would commandeer my kneeling pads for a bed.
