Alexa looks very comfy there! We call that position  'the loaf'! 

i know how you feel SFord. I lost my beloved Pete in June, and still think about him every day. He's buried in his own special corner of the garden and I'm going to plant wild flowers there as he loved the garden so much. Please please please get another kitty from a rescue centre.  I bet any cat would be sooo lucky to live with you!

There are so many that need homes. We got Sid from the Cats Protection League; they do such an amazing job. He has brought so much fun and happiness and we've only had him for a short time!  He's 8 yrs old and has some sight problems. No one seemed to want him so we jumped at the chance to adopt him....he is simply adorable!

let us know if Santa brings you a furrrrry friend!

Introducing this lovely little chap...our new addition to the family. From the local rescue centre. He has already brought us immeasurable happiness in the short time we've had him. Feeling so lucky that he's ours!  In the words of Pharrell Williams 'happy, happy, happy, happy'!!
