The other is a consequence of a a cat we did have..was looked after..and `caught`..
5 kittens
Anyway..Bluebell is her name...She is 10 months by now..but boy..Mischevious beyond!..Amusing to watch...
however she has this habit of waking me scratching my toes..woke me up this morn..drew blood!
Anyone else have probs like this?! ~~

I got one like that!!! lol....does exactly the same thing...bless him lol

you're lucky yours waits till 7!!!!...mine usually does it around 4am! x


AnnCardiff Report 25 Jun 2008 13:27

mine does that - I dare not put a foot out from under the duvet any time during the night or I shall have claws hanging on it - he also comes up by my shoulder and pops a paw under the duvet and nicks my arm!!! Another trick is to get on the dressing table and shove off anything he can - cleaned under my bed yesterday and found loads of missing make-up

Been on a killing spree this week too - so far I have -

one dead baby rat in my living room
one live baby rat in the kitchen which I managed to save
one small mouse kaput
one dead frog
one mauled baby mouse I managed to save

I just dread to hear the cat flap go - what next I'm wondering

tsk tsk Peggy.... Buttons was 1 last Saturday, lol!!!!

I have 5 cats..... Buttons' brother Hermie, half brother Jethro, and then the girls, Rosy 12, Polgara 16 this year and Belle about 18.

They all have different ways of trying to wake us up, although Pol and Belle are sleepy heads these days!!

Hermie and Jethro have given us so much joy, as have the girls, and it is so good to see them behaving like kittens again, chasing the boys around lol!!

Jethro is the naughtiest, brightest cat we have ever lived with.... Hermie is definitely the most handsome, and very sweet natured.

Love Daff xxx
