Sorry for no updates

Sorry for not updating in a year. Josh continues to do well and thrive and he'll be four in a few months time. He's still his funny self and has recently taken to watching wildlife programmes, in particular one about mongooses which he really loves and I've had to record it off the tv for him to watch when he feels like it.

I'm still fostering kittens too and have started a blog on my latest litter, it's at

Every morning

when I wake up Josh is on the bed, all snuggled up to me and purry and happy because it's the morning and he's happy. Sometimes when I don't wake up he climbs onto my pillow and kinda half sits on my head to get my attention.

The other day he jumped from the floor onto the worktop (bench) for the first time in his life. Admittedly i did help him for the last bit but i was more impressed that he even tried. Josh has never been able to jump higher than just onto a chair. So at two years old to see this brave attempt really impressed me. He was really pleased with himself too.

Apart from that Joshie is mainly sleeping, fighting Perkins and wandering around in the garden now the whether is getting warmer. I am getting some tortoises soon so I'm wondering what he's going to make of them. He likes my guinea pigs and like to sit with them and watch them and jump in their runs and eat the hay.

Also I joined Twitter not long ago, I don't know if any of you use it but if want to follow me (i'll follow back) this is the link to my twitterings

Orange update

Hello josh fans!

The little man is doing well, perhaps still a little snuffle and a dirty nose (never sure if it's dry catfood or snot). He was being so cute last night. I was sitting on the sofa under a blanket, and he snuffled his way under the blanket too and ended up half in my lap and half on my feet and he looks so cute and he just fell asleep like that.

We've been playing a lot recently and his favourite thing to do is 'hide' behind a cushion on the sofa and then i tickle him with the feathers on a stick toy and he goes crazy rolling round trying to grab it, and it's just legs and furry tummy everywhere! He's been playing with perkins loads recently too, they have such huge battles and josh at times literally dives on top of perkins. There's always bits of ginger fur everywhere afterwards!

It's been windy here which he really hates, it makes the cat flap bang and when he tries to go out he lets the wind blow him back into the house. I can't wait for the weather to warm up a little so he can go outside more because i know he enjoys pottering round out there.

No pictures this time because i'm at work but I'll take some and post some soon

a long time away

i seem to find so many things to do online i keep forgetting to come back here.

Josh is doing really well and yesterday i got round to uploading all his kitten pictures onto flickr hopefully that link works. there's nearly 100 pictures on there of him from kittenhood to the present day

josh as a baby
this is one of my favourite pictures of him as a baby, he loved that toy bird

orangey joshy
this one i just took the other day - still such a handsome chap

we recently had a ton of snow which is really rare round here. Josh's partner in crime Perkins loved it - i couldn't get him to stay indoors

perkins trying to catch a snowball

josh meanwhile didn't know what to make of the snow, so made it just outside the back door but for a cat who a bit of a scardy cat i think he did quite well!

the furthest josh made it

hopefully i will now update more often and have the time to look round your blogs too!

A little cold

When Josh was a kitten he had a cold all the time. The vet originally thought it might be fluid from his brain kinda seeping through (thought of it makes me feel a little ill) but they ran some tests and he has calichi virus which is a strain of cat flu. When he was a baby he had it really bad and used to sleep like this

or this


because his nose would get so blocked up. The older he's got the less bad his cold has got. But recently he got a really bad cold just like when he was a kitten, sneezing all the time again and having a running nose and mucky eyes. Poor fella! he is doing a bit better now, he's been on his medication and his cold cleared up but now it's coming back a bit again so i'll sort out his meds again

Purry Josh

Oh it's been so long since I wrote in here. I've just got back from a trip from Toronto and Josh and the other cats are pleased to see me.

Josh has been really cute since i got home and has been following me round purring. I fell asleep for a bit during today and he slept on the pillow and kept waking me up by purring. I bought the cats back some Meow mix treats from Toronto, which we dont get in the UK, and Josh was super pleased to see them! He loves little treats.

Just a snap of Josh and Perkins, they still love each other!

Little update

We're all still missing George and the house still seems really weird without him. The cat dynamics have changed and Tink is now really ruling the house with Connie second in command, Connie doesn't dare cross Tink. Josh is doing well and seems a lot happier and settled. He's been following me round loads.

I had some reiki last week and the lady asked me at the end if i had a ginger and white cat because she could feel one sitting on the chair in the room. I wonder if Josh really followed me there too
