a furry tale .. or two

Well excuse me for blowing our own trumpets and coming across as dreadful parents, the likes of whom live their lives through the fame of their offspring, but on Wednesday night we were watching The Apprentice when our two unexpectedly popped up on screen.

Oh no, I'm not talking about the biological children. It was the kittens who had their 15 seconds of fame! Check them out, they're on at about 11.45 minutes .. but for goodness sake, don't blink! Millie Mittens is the black and white who jumps up at the wall and then gets moved off Leon's knee, Alfie is the little tabby popping out from underneath Karen's chair. It must have been filmed the day before we collected them. So cute and very exciting for the children.

The other night Alfie stayed out the whole night for the first time. I'm a little embarrassed to say I was worried sick and even got up in the middle of the night to shine a torch around the garden, much to the husband's bemusement. Men just don't understand how we mothers feel, do they? Needless to say, the furry one turned up the next morning, very thirsty and very hungry but not at all as traumatised as I was! The children were overjoyed to see him too, so they held a party in his honour.

Only the little furball didn't attend. Goodness knows what he was up to all night, because this was pretty much it for the next day ..

Hoping you're having a lovely Half Term week.

  2. Oh Alfie! I think puss had a party that night. Maybe it was a kind of 'coming of age' party..he looks very contented in his sleep, so he must have had a great time!

  3. Oh no the link doesn't work in Canada! The children must have been thrilled. I am glad Alfe found his way home. That must have been worrisome.

  4. So glad the puss turned up ok, I can quite understand your worry!!
    And they're famous pussy cats too, at least they left of their own accord and didn't get fired. :)

  5. How exciting for you all. I hope you have a recording, so you can show them when they get older!


There's nothing like a comment to stop me feeling like I'm talking to myself. If you leave one here I'll pop one back here too, so don't forget to come back and continue the conversation ..
