Hello guys, sorry to of been quiet for so long but what with the new 3 day a week stall and having to make things to sell - THEN ontop of that spending time with the cats, safe to say i've been a biiiiit busy :). The cats are all fine at the moment generally. Eddy had a little slip and whilst washing himself managed to pull a bit too much fur out on his leg which made a tiny nick but blood went everywhere and i panicked thinking he'd been passing blood. He hadnt. (i checked!). Beany [Stitch] is currently in the TCEK house [this is what i call the main first house] and his home is being rented out to Eddy, of which he is less than pleased :). Chewie is being oddly affectionate a lot of the time now which i love because i've missed my fruiticus but also im wondering whats happened to make her so.... cutesy now. Wolfie is starting to sneeze just a little now because of the temperature changes and also he is getting very impatient at food times and insists on trying to stand on my shoulders and head to "make me go faster". Pumpy is taking a while to eat certain meals (Would say being picky but its not really that as such, she just feels bloaty after certain things). Other than his leg Eddy is having a blast usually with one of our Catnip Meesers (Handmade By Furwebs) but this past week he hasnt wanted to play much and just sleeps or washes. Ohhh And Chewies hair is almost full "PUFF" mode thanks to Eddy continuously washing her, to which she pulls the oddest faces and occassionally has to be rescued.And for some reason, even before Beany was put in the TCEK house [only since yesterday afternoon but you'd think I had forced him to walk a tight-rope for 2 weeks without rest - the way he yowls at me for hugs when I go back out], he seems oddly attached to me again, I realise this is partly his Separation Anxiety but he stares into my eyes from across the room, dives me for hugs and kisses, licks every uncovered part of my skin on my arms or legs and goes generally nuts and droolsome. For the last two nights he has had proper "uppy hugs" only to lean me backwards onto the sofa by force and curl up on my chest which he never does usually. He is more a "flop beside and snooze" kind of baby usually. This morning John mistook the hissy outbursts as aggression when he tried to take him off of me, but I explained this was him begging to stay with me and begging me not to leave again (chokes me up sometimes when he shakes and clings on so tightly and the crying noise he makes),so there's me,struggling to climb up with him on my chest and put him in the house and he tries to hold my hand with his paw spread out and lets out this low moan that sounds for all the world to me like "maaahmaa nauuuh" [mumma no]. And i close the door, apologise for ages and say I will be back in a few hours... *sniffles*.

On Saturday 12th July we marked a special anniversary by adding two new furbabies to our clan!
Harry and Edward from Leighton Buzzard joined our family.
This date marked the fifth anniversary since the passing of our sister / sister in law who was as animal mad as we are, By chance it happened to be the day we settled on for meeting to collect them from their old "staff".We then also by chance came to alter their names a little due to their personalities.
Edward - unless being naughty, is now known as Ed,Edd or Eddy(!) as this fits his personality and also was the name of one of Tracys favourite cartoon shows.
Harry - who did not seem to like being called by that name, and was quite an "experiment" as he was a challenge to get settled in with the babies, was changed to Stitch and responds to the name beautifully. He is a little terror when he wants to be a but a cute (large) ball of fluffiness when he wants to be too! But only seems to be with mummy (Kitty).
Eddy moved almost straight in with the other three residents (Chewie, Wolfie and Pumpkin) in the big house of the cabin, but Stitch is still a little nervous of close contact with these "strange furry beasties" so he has spent his nights in his own house in the cabin which seems to suit him just fine.
They all five get along surprisingly well given that the two boys have only been here since last saturday. They all come out and spend the majority of the day roaming about the cabin and playing / finding sneaky spots to hide in thinking they can avoid detection and not get caught sneaking into the food cupboard when it opens(!)
Many photographs have been taken - and I have to restrain myself from taking and uploading millions of the same thing as they are just so cute together!
