Zak and Bryan

20 Jun

When feeling in need of love and support and nice cuddly things to think about, what do you do? You get a kitten. Or two. Not a beagle or a terrier. Nice one Sylv 🙂 These are Sylv’s cats.

One on the left is Zak and one on the right is Bryan. Bryan is a vampire cat. He sank his tiny sharp incisors into my finger when I caught him. He then turned into a hissing, spitting, shape-shifting fluffball in my hand, whilst I persuaded myself not to faint in the kitchen of the house we got them from. It wasn’t the blood, it was the pain what did it. We now have a wary relationship whilst I ponder how quickly the blood poisoning will spread.

They are both urban boyz, yet to meet our country cats.

Internal rain storm – sorted. External rain – started again.

    How cute are they! We have 2 rescue cats, which we have had for about 9 years now. The one is still fondly called Hissing Sid (real name Tilly). When we first got them, she hid behind the fridge and whenever you tried to touch her she would hiss and spit at you.That lasted for about a month, then she finally gave in. She is a strange little thing, cross eyed and still quite timid. It took about 3 years for her to purr – I didn’t think she could, so it was music to our ears when she did it for the first time. She still won’t sit on your knee, but will sit beside you and bunt against your hand to be stroked. We love her to bits, it was worth all the hissing, spitting and scratches. Maybe you ought to invest in some thick gardening gloves for a bit! x

    Cute! Now, you’re sure they are both boys? We don’t want another Simon situation 🙂 I look forward to meeting them. If Bryan is a vampire cat and you start to develop symptoms will you gain a fondness for chasing its of string? x x

    Belated birthday greetings to Chris – have been away for a few days so out of touch with blog news. Good to hear that the internal flood wasn’t too serious – ours was and I wouldn’t wish the subsequent hassles on anyone!
    Those kittens are gorgeous despite Bryan’s vampire tendencies. Hopefully the family and the country cats will sort those out before too long. You may need to try the cobweb cure on your injuries…x

    Went and found Rosie’s grave today and told her we are back….Unfortunately didn’t have any pre-warning of an impending visit so didn’t have any flowers or anything to take but will rectify that next time.

    Race for Life
    – Just to say Rachel and Rebecca’s Race for Life went really well yesterday. They ran in support of the cancer research that helped me in my treatment, but largely in fond memory of Rosie. They have just about reached the £400 sponsorship mark (after targetting £100) …… Would you be able to put this towards Rosie’s TKOE target fundraising for this year? They had Rosie’s name on their backs as they ran!!!! I have yet to put up some photos, but I’ll share them with you when I get them.

    Loving the new kittens …. but, rather yours than mine!!! X

    Hang on, they’re boys so surely in keeping with Kilburn tradition they should have girly names?
