We bought a cheap little camera in town yesterday, a Pentax M50, to keep downstairs – this is the first video, which didn’t come out too bad at all. Henry likes to chase the shadow of his tail – he does this a lot, for a very long time usually.  Except, it seems, when there’s […]

… than to get involved in a full and frank exchange of views between the spotty boys. Got a nice gash across the knuckle of my right thumb for my pains.  Both boys now banished outside until they learn how to behave (well, I can dream …)

They don’t get on really, the big spotty cats and the kittens … On the left, Henry lying on top of Iggy, and on the right Ron lying on top of Mustrum.  The kittens just turn up and occupy a space, no matter what else is in it, and expect to be made welcome.  And […]

The spotty boys, Iggy and Mustrum, have had a turbulent relationship since they arrived.  We got them ten days apart, on 4th and 14th December respectively, in 1998.  Which means we are almost at our 10th anniversary, the three of us! Two male Bengals in a house, even though they are neutered, is always going […]

Bought from the same breeder, within two weeks of each other, they’ve never really got on.  Sometimes this “not getting on” has been all out warfare, with appalling displays of violence and aggression.  Certainly I haven’t seen them this physically close together in literally years. We are seeing a lot of change in the remaining […]

Bada is very clingy since we’ve been away, and this morning she has decided that Iggy should keep her company. This is fine and dandy, but I wish they would do it SOMEWHERE ELSE. And don’t tell me to move them – do you think I haven’t tried?!

We once took a photo of the whole Tribe together on the bed – it was in the days when They Were Nine, and gone are Mollie, Zool, Shrimp and Drumknott, and Esk and Ptep have moved to Norwich. I doubt we’ll ever get the current Tribe to sit together, but they were all in […]

Most cats have special sounds they make in special circumstances, and Iggy has his own range. One of his special voices is that he makes when he catches a slow worm; we have a colony (if that’s the word) of these curious legless lizards living in the compost heap. Iggy loves to remove them from […]

The Tribe are very fond of catnip. They don’t want it in a spray, or finely ground into a toy – they like it in identifiable leaf form, the Acapulco Gold, if you will, of catnip. And we ran out … Iggy is the most partial to a snort (and he does snort it!), and […]
