I've been thinking about doing this sort of post for a while but wasn't really sure how it would go down, but I know if someone else did it I would love to read it so here goes!
I have used a lot of photos of my cats throughout this blog so I thought I would do a post which introduces them all properly! I am going to do them one at a time as I think I will probably get carried away and it'll end up super long if I don't!
This is our oldest cat, she will turn 20 this summer, only slightly younger than me! We have had her all her life because her mum, Yoma, was our cat too. Yoma was a stunning lilac torte Burmese and my parents wanted to try and breed her so they took her to where ever you go to breed your cat... however she obviously did not approve of the boy cat she had been put with a dug her way out of the enclosure! Luckily they found her shortly after and took her home without putting her through that again.
However a wee while later she became pregnant with a tom cat (must've preferred the bad boys ;)) and Kali was the result of this! She had 5 kittens but sadly for whatever reason only Kali survived, and she has deformed claws as a birth defect which means she can't retract them and some of them stick out at weird angles. She was always quite anti-social and really quite vicious at times (probably because she is half feral!) until her mum died, when she started being more cuddly and less fierce.
Due to her age she is now a house cat out of choice and spends most of her time on my parents bed. We bring her down to the living room in the evenings to give her some company and a change of scenery. Certainly not a very exciting life but she is happy and comfortable so that's all that matters! My dad took her out to the patio at the weekend when we had gorgeous weather, but she was not impressed, as soon as he laid her down she got up, walked back into the house and back up to her bed! She can get up those stairs at some speed for a lady of her age!
Next up is Theo :)
