caught in the act!

We are trying not to give Mabel too many treats. It would be so easy to spoil her but we don't want her to be a big fat unhealthy cat. Of course, we do give her some yummy treats but she also has ways of finding that little bit extra for herself. However hard I try to clear up after cooking she always manages to find something, somewhere! She's often seen licking her lips as she strolls nonchalantly out of the kitchen.
She also likes to sit high up on the sofa arm and wait until we take our eye off anything we're eating! The sofa arm is the perfect place for her to keep a close watch and as soon as we are distracted have a swipe!

I just couldn't resist posting this little kitten story I found this morning. This kitten is so adorable!

big cats

Last week I went to Dublin in Ireland for a few days and spent one of those days at the zoo. It was a lovely day and the big cats were taking the opportunity to have a sleep in the sunshine. This meant they stayed still long enough for me to take a few photos and to see, close up, just how beautiful they are.
They reminded me so much of Mabel when she's having a snooze.

Oh, and I couldn't resist this cheeky little guy!
