I’ve recently taken up tapestry once more, and am currently finishing off an aubergine by Kaffe Fassett. Next up, I’m going to do this one, which I’ve already ordered. Don’t you think the resemblance is uncanny?

Iggy loves the slow cooker because it is warm, and there is an old padded jiffy bag beside it for a chap to rest his old bones. Today there is a whole chickie! in the slow cooker, which means that he is even more determined to maintain his station. If he works out how to […]

We live in an urban jungle here – (biggish) Victorian terraced houses, with alleys and runs between the back yards. The spotty boys have found it hard to settle into this new environment, and Iggy in particular is not very happy with his lot; he’s never liked change, and this was hard for a 13 […]

We were out for the day yesterday, and this is the sight that greeted us when we got home. I wondered if perhaps Iggy was behaving a little like Greyfriars Bobby, and was loyally awaiting our return, but I suspect the truth is more prosaic, and it was just a relatively cool place to be […]

I think they were protesting our culpability at letting it rain outside at this point. That and the utterly inadequate and, what’s more, inedible supplies of food downstairs.

We have a large bedroom here, with two tall, south facing windows, so the sun streams in there during the day (when it shines at all, of course).  We set a chair that is very like, but is not, an Ikea Poang by one of the windows – it’s a nice quiet place if one […]

We are due to go to Leeds this afternoon – we have tickets for a Show of Hands gig (yay!), and are also going into Ikea to pick up a few bits (yay! meatballs!). However, we did wonder last night whether we might have to cancel …  Ron wasn’t too well – he was doing […]

We’ve been worried about Iggy since we arrived here in Hull last November; after his four day walkabout, he was clearly unhappy with his environment, and displayed evidence of same. He lived mostly either in the bathroom or the kitchen, rarely setting a paw in the bedroom, living room or study. He absolutely hated the […]

We had to take Iggy and Mustrum to the vet this morning – they are going to have to go into a cattery for a few days in a while, and so they needed some jabs. They don’t like cat carriers.  They don’t like cars.  They don’t much like being indoors at all when the […]

Iggy looking mournful Originally uploaded by ramtops Next door is having their extension refettled – this is an irritating process, given we work in the room just above where it’s being done, but no matter. Steve the builder is fascinated by the cats, and the other day when I went out, he said “that golden […]
