Urchin and the Wardrobe

Urchin's latest thing is using my dressing gown to climb up to the top of the wardrobe. After her first success with this technique, I was determined to take the camera up to bed with me, so I could get a picture of the next time.

Unfortunately 6am is not conducive to photography, and I ended up putting the camera in "TEXT" mode (which I didn't even know was a thing) and therefore didn't get the action-cat climbing video I was aiming for. And she didn't like the flash so she got down before summiting.

Urchin and the Fleece

This grubby yellow fleece is the background to a lot of Urchin's pictures. When she first came to live with us, and wasn't allowed outdoors yet, Paul would bundle her up in the front of the fleece and carry her into the garden, to show her the limits of her demesne. It's become her security blanket. If she wants a cuddle, she'll look meaningfully at the fleece then look back at us until someone puts on the fleece, sits down and waits for the lapcat. When Paul is away, the fleece is spread on his side of the bed, for her to sniff. And it is currently spread on top of the storage boxes where she likes to lie, keeping an eye on us. You can see by the luxuriant display of tummy fur that she is very relaxed on the fleece.
