Urchin and the bonsai pot

Just needed to try it out for size.

Happy Birthday, Urchin

Impossible to believe she is 5. She still seems like such a baby, but I can't really remember what life was like before our hairy companion came along.

Daddy's girl

She does love being carried around the garden.

This is less obstructive than it looks - Paul didn't need his computer. The study is the coolest room in the house and hairy cats were finding the weather a little warm for the last few days.

Urchin and the birdbox - redux

It's that time of year again where birdboxes become very interesting. As far as we know, nobody is nesting in this one, fortunately. But some blue tits have visited, so it does smell fascinating.

Caught in the act
Protesting her innocence

It can be difficult being a long-haired cat. Aside from the livestock that can get stuck in one's tail, there are also the constant vegetal attachments. This was the result of one trip into the garden on a wet day.

Urchin and the dandelions

Cats get to enjoy much more time outside at this time of year. Lots of patrolling to be done and flowers to be sniffed.

Lap cat

Sometimes a cat just wants a cuddle

Happy Easter

Having both of her people at home for four whole days is pretty much Urchin's idea of heaven.

So much fluff

Ridiculous beast. She was rolling around on the window sill and kept falling off, then pretending she hadn't.

Oh my ears and whiskers

We don't often take pictures of Urchin in undignified poses, but this magnificent display of whiskers was too good to miss.

Keeping warm

January 4th
Urchin is spending an enormous amount of time in the hammock at the moment. It is definitely the warmest place in the house!
