moggie


Did you really think we could have an alphabet without a cat appearing somewhere? I saw this beauty today sitting behind the railings in Whitechapel, watching the world go by. If only I'd been playing Catto! The trick, of course, is not to let your companion/ opponent know you are playing, so that when you see a cat and shout Catto! they complain that it's unfair. But any walk is a game of Catto! if you are with someone. You've just got to know where to look - on walls or warm cars, rolling in the grass, looking out of windows. Double score for moggies with mittens.

That link to the mitten cat was lovely..we used to have a lovely mitten cat called Big Paw ..original name don't you think....she was a beauty, cream with silver tabby points and a lovely disposition, we still have two of her litter mates (ordinary paws)and wondered if there was a genetic link to her early demise? she just curled to sleep one day and didn't wake up. A lovely cat.

(btw Your link has lost it's first h colleen )

He's lovely. There don't seem to be as many cats around as there used to be. I suppose people don't have them the same...too busy or whatever!

Val - thanks for the correction; now sorted. That's what comes from sitting up to midnight writing blog entries without your glasses on...

I seem to need my glasses on all the time now...which is rather unfortunate given my innate talent for losing the darn things!!!!
