52 week project 11/25


This week Ben bought me some flowers and I decided to use one stem creatively :)

A portrait of Gremlin, once a week, every week for the rest of the year 

This photo probably won't help the fact that whenever someone meets Gremlin for the first time they call him a girl, actually for the first week I was totes guilty of doing the same :p

(sorry Gremlin!)

All about Burrito Cats


I'm here to tell you all about the awesome Meme Burrito Cats!

burrito cats

It pretty much involves wrapping your cat up like a burrito and then adding it to instagram with the hilarious hashtag #purrito

Green or yellow purrito kitty?

 Besides the cats looking seriously unimpressed they do look crazy toasty warm :)

 Towel or ski pant leg?

or flannel arm sleeve?

So it is a silly meme but there is a more serious side to wrapping your cat up.   Jackson Galaxy in a segment from My cat from Hell explains the "burrito technique" as a way to comfort a cat by swaddling them tightly and hopefully allowing them to calm down from a stressful situation.  The site, Vet Street actually provides some pretty awesome instructions and photos for wrapping up your cat, especially if your cat is not so happy about letting you cut their nails or giving them medicine!

So it's a meme that's hilarious, cute and practical all in one :)

Help Draven get his Laser Cat Photo as his Senior Portrait

Okay we have to help Draven!

Photo Courtesy of Vincent Giordano from Trinacria Photography
This amazing photo above of Draven holding his cat Mr. Bigglesworth with added (amazing!) lasers is under contention.  Draven has put together an online petition (you can view here and sign) due to his school not allowing the photo to feature as his Senior Portait (although his school has said it can appear elsewhere in the yearbook).  I still think it totally deserves to be his senior portait and if you do too, please get signing, we have to until september 15th to help Draven and Mr. Bigglesworth and the lasers :)

Check out Draven explaining more over here

52 week project 10/25


This week Ben found gremlin in the strangest place yet...

A portrait of Gremlin, once a week, every week for the rest of the year

Yup nesting in the chicken coop right on top of the eggs.  Oblina (my chicken) and Gremlin have a bit of beef together. I always see them doing slightly passive aggressive things to peeve each other off :p Earlier in the day Oblina had snuck inside and was eating Gremlin's cat food (not a one-off occurrenceu). Sitting on top of the eggs was a first for Gremlin though. I'm hoping deep they secretly love each other - in a sister brother sort of way!

Top 10 Cat Cookies - Part 2


I wanted to do another top 10 cat cookies post (see my previous round up here) but after discovering an amazing Japanese shop called Cafe Lucky I knew I had to share my top 10 favourites all from there!

 Cat masks! I'm guessing they're 100% edible too! eep so sweet :)

 The iconic kitten with string - not ashamed to say I'd happily eat one :)

Loving those sly eyed cats and the ghost cats on the right have to be my absolute favourite!

 Cute fluffy kittens!!

and you can't go wrong (in my humble opinion) combining cats and love!

Isn't the shop incredible!

52 week project 9/25

This week I thought I'd take a shot of Gremlins ear tatt or his new cat bib (going great btw) but in the end this photo won :)

A Portrait of Gremlin, once a week, every week for the rest of the year

Sleepy Gremlin just waking up (be still my beating heart) :) :)
