Our trio watching Matthew prepare to restock the food bowl!
It occurred to me the other day that I haven't blogged about the cats for quite a while, so I thought I'd do a little update.  They are such wee treasures and we are so lucky to have them keeping us in line!

Poppet using me as a cushion one lazy Saturday morning.

Poppet is nearly three now, and is undoubtedly the boss of the house.  She keeps us all in line with loud 'miaows' (for the humans) and bops (for the kits).  She is a bundle of fun and loves cuddles and falling asleep on her Poppet blanket.  Especially if the blanket is on top of a human.  She loves chicken and steak (just the leftoves, ha!) and is generally just a very content young miss.  It's amazing how much she has grown in the last two years, from the timid, scared little thing we collected from the shelter to the bonny and beautiful girl she now is!

Hunting for flies - a favourite pastime.

 Fry is just a delight.  He's really strong and stocky now, but is such a sweet and affectionate boy!  He adores head bops and fusses and is never happier than when chatting with his humans.  He still cannot miaow particularly well, instead relying on a squeak to gain attention, but he has one of the deepest, happiest purrs.  Fry purrs with his whole being!

Leela *loves* boxes.
Leela is such a sweet little thing, and even though she's still quite small and light, she is also TALL.  She loves to jump and run and scraggle (a family nickname for her mad dashes around the house/into walls/anywhere).  She's still a little timid around new people, but if she likes you enough to stick around and not run out the back door she's a friend for life.  She adores Matthew.  Big purrs and lots of kisses from this girl!

They are all so happy and thriving, it's a delight to see.  I'm so pleased we chose to adopt them from the shelter and love what they bring to our family dynamic.

  1. I'm so glad that I finally got to meet them! They are awesome. And I have a similar picture of Leela on my phone, hahaha. She really does love boxes.


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
