This was a peaceful thread till I was threatened with Benson :-D :-D

My Siamese Cross boy who I call Buddug ( a girl's name so he is a very cross kitten weighing about 3 lbs) could have Benson.

lol, John
Ive just conned a young girl just out of grooming school
she is going to try to cut him i will let you know how she gets on wink wink

cause nobody else will go near him
i love him to bits but he is so naughty


JustJohn Report 29 Sep 2012 22:27

If he is 64 kilos, he will probably have notches on his tail for each cat kill :-D

Why not simply change his name to Lucy, Should calm him down.

Waiting for Rose to pounce and drive me off her thread. Metal, Rose, metal :-( :-( :-(

Too busy lol, trying to add names to my tree so I can open it for a new found relative...I may be back later...possibly in a week if my tree won't speed up...I really do prefer my piece of wallpaper :-|


JustJohn Report 29 Sep 2012 22:39

Typical, Rose. Start a non-contentious thread about bread storage and, as soon as Joy wrecks it by talking about sausages and a dog called Benson, you claim you have better things to do. We don't come on Genes to waste time adding rellies to our trees ;-)

Is it okay if I mention BREAD as I don't have a dog or a cat. Keep mine in freezer and get it out as I need it it soon thaws here.

True sorry. Friends of ours a married couple live in UK and have a house here, the man was here and his wife in UK and he phoned her to ask her where she kept the toast!

Except for rolls or baguettes, they're eaten the day we buy them.

Any body fancy somre toast
i bet you can all smell it now :-D :-D


JustJohn Report 30 Sep 2012 10:05

Just got me bread out of metal bin, toasted it and applied Lurpak sklightly salted and Duerr's marmalade. :-D :-D

Why is Benson's food called Touchstone and Scarlett? My 3 kittens (8 month old Siamese Cross are Blodwen, Gwyn and Buddug. Was convinced Buddug was a pretty little girl when I named her (not good at sex). Now he is a very handsome boy with pretty obvious proof of that. Poor little thing looks so confused when I call him Buddug (pronounced Bithig) :-( :-(

I only have 1 bread bin that we all use or wow betide :-| yes we actually keep bread in it, I have no idea if its ideal for keeping bread fresher in this house it doesnt get the chance to go stale, it was choosen purely to match the decor of the rest of the kitchen :-D :-D :-D


JoyBoroAngel Report 30 Sep 2012 12:04

Joy Not sure why your last post has not been RR'd. Perhaps the Fanta has not managed to open the link yet!!!!!!

I just looked at the FACES of my 3 kittens - 66% strike rate. Anyway, pretty little Buddug is about to be done this week, so she will not be a proud father and no one's cat's pedigree will have a girl''s ame as the father. My own dad was Sue :-( :-( :-(
