Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 205

“Time spent with cats is never wasted.” – Sigmund Freud

Today a cat quote to honour the very special feline in our lives.

Sonu Singh.

It’s his birthday today. He’s five!

Here, when we got him

And now

He’s a true king in our house, and the family wouldn’t be the same without him.

I still feel honoured when he decides to come and sit with me on the sofa or bed, because you can’t force him.

He’s a cat with his own mind… is there any other kind?

Today will be filled with cat treats and lots of scritching for our favourite feline!

So…do you celebrate your pet’s birthdays?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤ 

School Halloween Disco Fun!

It was the School disco today.

After the rushing around, having forgotten to set my alarm, I wasn’t sure if I’d have the energy, because it was not one, but two discos!

We have one for the younger children and one for the older ones.

Being a Reception teacher means my pupils were attending the first one, and my daughter, as an older pupil, was attending the second, so it meant another nearly 12 hours at school!

But it was fun. The kids enjoyed it, and I must admit that I had a bit of a blast too, dancing with all my babies!

Of course a Halloween disco is not complete without a bit of dressing up…  and I decided this year I would not go all witchy, but feline instead!

I promised to share my dressing up…

Here’s me, in all my filtered and unfiltered glory!

Eating Out Of My Hand – Literally! #HeerAnd Ranjha #MondayBlogs

We’ve completed a week with our two feathered additions, Heer and Ranjha the parrotlets, to the family.

It’s been a time of adjusting and change for all.

As a cat, Sonu Singh is intrigued, but can’t work out why he can’t play with them!

The kids just want them to come out of the cage and perform tricks, or miraculously start speaking – the concept of settling, then training seems to be alien!

Hubby Dearest and I are busy, cleaning the cage regularly, and spending time talking to them. They are too scared for us to get too close yet.

Well, they were… But we had a great breakthrough the other day.

I placed my hand inside the cage and both of them flew onto my hand to eat!

They have, since, done the same on both the kids hands too, and this means they are suddenly more interesting to them. Now they fight to feed them, and I have to stop them from overfeeding the wrong seeds!

Sonu Singh watches…

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 135

“When I look into the eyes of an animal I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I see a soul.” AD Williams

Thanks for this one Spidey!

It fits in with the fact that our family has just increased by two new beings, and four new feet/claws!

The intention was not to go and buy a new pet(s) but seeing those two feathery beauties yesterday, I felt a connection straight away.

The parrotlets, Heer and Ranjha, who have now joined our menagerie, were sat on a perch surrounded by squalking budgies, canaries and zebra finches. They groomed each other, and snuggled up together, flying around a little then settling down, quietly ‘talking’ to one another.

One look at them and I felt a connection.

We went away, and something pulled us to come back.

The next thing, they were in the car with us on the way home!

It was the same with Hubby Dearest and Sonu Singh, our furbaby… even though he wasn’t really a ‘cat-person’, something clicked when he saw the photo of this ginger kitten, and he just had to bring him ‘home’!

Like he became my third child, I can already feel these two becoming my feathered offspring too!

Right, I’d better go and check the cage, Sonu has been rather interested in his feathered siblings…
