Spam, Simon’s Cat & New Years Resolutions!

•January 25, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Belated Happy 2010 to all 🙂 There seems to be so much to update on since my last posts i’m not sure where to begin!

Poppy & Oliver are doing fine and looking forward to the new year ahead to see what treats await them! Today for example Oliver discovered a new passion…Spam! I will not go into how a tin of Spam made it’s way in to this food lovers kitchen, suffice to say the Hubby is a bit of an impulse shopper! However it did not go to waste, Oliver could not get enough of the stuff. So one more thing to add to Olivers odd food favourites…Spam, burgers, olive & tomatoe pasta, cheese, red wine and coffee (the latter two he just likes the smell of!).

Oliver seems to be completely back to himself now. I’m still not sure if he was possessed or if the strain of moving caused a bit of a nervous breakdown, either way he hasn’t shown any signs of aggression in months and hopefully I will not get savaged anymore 🙂 That’s No.1 on my list of hopes for 2010! I can safely say there is little else more scary than being attacked by your own cat! Well the scars are almost gone (the physical ones anyway!!) ;p and he is still my big ol’ Fur Baby.

Speaking of which my favourite cartoon fur baby got his own book! Aptly titled ‘Simon’s Cat in his very own book’. It is very funny, the Hubby got it for me for Christmas and it’s one of my favourite presents. Simon Tofield has also done a new movie which you can check out below 🙂 Very fitting for the recent weather we had! Enjoy.

Moved House

Well I’ve been a bit busy for the past few months. Long story short we moved house. Myself, the Hubby, the Tropical fish, Mr. Jaws and the two Fur Babies 🙂 Things have been stressful for poor Oliver and he has a problem or two which I will go in to in my next post. Just wanted to assure anyone who might be interested (!) that I am not dead :p More to follow soon, hopefully.

Kitty Cats in the news

As the saying goes ‘curiosity killed the cat’, luckily the cat in this news story only used up one of his lives!

And here we see that cat’s like to go travelling too, hehehe!

Here are a few recent photos of the family 🙂 The first one on top is Mr. Jaws old tank, now home to 14 tropical fish (we’ve had a few casualties, sadly!). In the next shot Oliver is shown in one of his new favourite spots, the kitchen sink!! Not sure what that’s all about, maybe it’s cool for him in this warm weather we are enjoying lately. Then we have a close up of one of our new tropical babies, next we see Poppy showing off next to her portrait, hehehe. My last photo features Poppy again, showing her for the true sun worshipper she is :D, she will seek out any patch of sun light to bask in, often on her back, legs sprawled everywhere!! Such a lady!

Something Fishy

•May 4, 2009 • 2 Comments

100_1311Our long suffering goldfish, Mr. Jaws, finally got a new tank! Mr. Jaws is 6 years old and one of the biggest fish i have ever seen 🙂 For a long time now we have been talking about getting a new tank so he could have the space to enjoy himself and to help cut down on the need for so many water changes! Big fish = Lots of fish poo!!!!

Now even though we were talking about it, we kept putting it off, until The Hubby took the initiative and surprised me last week with a whole new tank and cabinet. I didn’t even mind putting together the flat pack cabinet!

So after a little DIY and a lot of rearranging furniture, Mr. Jaws took up residence in his new home 😀


As you can see Mr. Jaws is not the only one to really love his new tank! Poppy seems to think it’s a new heated bed just for her!

It’s quite sturdy though, so no chance of her falling through and getting up close and personal with Mr. Jaws!

However, all is not totally rosy in the underwater garden. Despite the new tank, or maybe because of it, Mr. Jaws seems to have developed a spot of bother, white spot in fact or Ich. He doesn’t seem too under the weather at the moment and I’m hoping if I get the treatment first thing tomorrow when the pet shop opens, he’ll make a full recovery.

The ‘In-Laws’ were visiting recently and I’ve just changed jobs, so between one thing and another I’ve been fairly busy!

I have unfortunately been neglecting my poor old blog. And I’m not about to change that today, lol, as I don’t really have time to post 🙂

Instead I’m putting up a couple of recent photos. The top pic is of a lovely cat we came across while visiting the Rock of Cashel, the one to the left here is of course The Princess herself Poppy!

Both herself and Oliver are in good health and as always get up to new mischief daily!!
