RIP Biscuit

Today, we bid a sad farewell to Biscuit. Over the past six-months her health had really started to deteriorate, and based on our previous experience of owning Persians, by the time they get to 14, they’re suffering. Biscuit was fourteen-and-a-quarter! ? With her sister passing back in August 2017, she had become ‘top-cat’ (literally) here …

Moggy Birthday – Biscuit at 14

Biscuit turned 14 today. With Bon-Bon looking down on her sister, Biscuit continues to be ‘top-cat’. She’s still VERY vocal at times – quite spontaneously – and a year since it first started, we’ve still no idea what she wants. It’s amazing how such a small mouth can emit such a loud noise. Luckily, her …

Moggy Birthday – Biscuit at 13!

Biscuit turned 13 today and by my calculation that makes her about 68 in human years. Our previous two Persians (Mumsy and Bubsy) made it to almost 15 and 14 years old respectively, but were both unwell in their final years. I therefore expect, going forward, we’ll be making more trips to and from the …

Happy 12th Birthday Moggies!

When they were younger (3 months old) The Moggies turned 12 today – that makes them around 64 in ‘human years’. Habits-wise, they’re very much the same – they still wake us up at whatever time suits them (2.45am seems favourite at the mo’) to let them out; they still prefer dry cat food to …

Return to Titchmarsh

With everything packed including the kitchen sink, in preparation for our holiday tomorrow, we took a drive over to Titchmarsh and the rather splendid Wheatsheaf Pub and Restaurant. Apart from the obvious attraction to great pub-grub, The main reason was to catch-up with Jane and Mick for the annual girlie-pressy-swap and a catchup with each …

Stalag Pemberley – The Eastern Sector

David and I tackled the suspected ‘escape loophole’ for Biscuit today, by duplicating the established extra trellis construction from earlier this year, on the east (left) side of the garden, towards Karen and Paul’s. Biscuit Having tried a temporary construction over the past few weeks, we’re pretty sure that’s where she was exiting. David and …

A Furry Happy Birthday!

In that famous Victor Meldrew voice: “I don’t believe it!” Hard to believe that today, the cats reached the age of 10. From what I’ve read, that means according to the official calculation/conversion they’re about 57 years old in human years. Actually, I’m surprised Biscuit has made it this far with all her recent Steve …
