It's not often we manage to get photos of our cats together......it's not often (in fact really quite rare) that Calico wants anything to do with the children.......and it's quite amazing that this picture, a real catch quick moment, was taken!
I don't think I've ever blogged about our cats, I might have briefly mentioned them, I don't know! Anyway, we have 2 very lovely cats. Gizzy, on the left is almost 13, we've had him 11 1/2 years, we got him the month before moved into our home. He is adorable, he's very soft and placid and will more or less let Charlie and Courtney do what they want with him!! He's very tolerant, LOL! If we ever settle down to watch TV he's always on our knee and he's the hunter! He kindly wakes me in the night if he's brought home a pressie! (yuk!) Calico has a very different personality but is adorable all the same. We've had her 9 years and got her as a tiny kitten! She has mellowed a lot in the last few years and likes to have a good cuddle and nuzzle up but it's very much on her terms, LOL! She is a beautiful cat, if only I could put eye liner on as perfectly as her markings!
So this afternoon I was taking some photos of Charlie for a layout I have planned to do this evening. Charlie was just sitting on the grass when Gizzy came over and flopped by his side! Calico seeing Gizzy get a cuddle must have momentarily forgot that it was Charlie giving it and came over for one herself, I quickly snapped away and am delighted (as it Charlie) with this photo!
