Other than that Mummy fed me the bestest chicken ever this weekend and it seems all the family have clubed together to buy us cats some nice new beds and pillows to match! Oh yes, Tigmut'hep has a soft and comfy new single bed that he likes to share with D'boy, while Isis and I have a brand new memory foam double bed sized matress arriving later in the week, though we already have some very nice new soft fluffy pillows to share with My Mummy and Dad... We're both very excited about the imminant arrival of the new matress as it's supposed to mold to our bodies and kind of cradle us as we sleep! It took ages for Dad and My Mummy to find just the right one for us, so I hope they got it right - after all a cat likes to be very comfy when it sleeps! :)

So I have been up and awake much of the night making sure that My Mummy had somekitty to snuggle with, while she turned from hot to cold and back again and Dad wheezed, coughed and gave off more radiant heat than a total nuclear meltdown on his side of the bed! Even D'boy is sick and whiny, so much so that even Tigmut'hep can't interest him in a game of toy cars or Lego...
I must say Isis is being a good little nurse kitty too, she now wants a cute little "candy stripe" uniform, though I've told her she can't have one until she still can resit putting the bitey on a moving toe under the covers! ;) Well it's most off putting to have your sick patient suddenly bolt upright and screaming, when you've just got them nice and settled and were starting to doze off too...

Firstly there's our lovely cat litter Cats Best ÖkoPlus it makes unpleasant indoor odours a thing of the past, as they are be trapped within it's organic fibres. The fibre itself comes from untreated domestic fir and spruce wood, which accumulates naturally in the environmental cycle. Using this wood is a help to maintaining healthy forests.
ÖkoPlus is currently the only clumping litter that is both compostable and biodegradable and because it is made from organic fibre, it is much lighter and easier to handle than comparable mineral litter. This in turn saves on transport costs and makes ÖkoPlus a truly environmentally friendly litter. What's more it's also velvety soft on the paws and darn good for digging around in! :) The other thing that's good is that because it clumps so well it lasts about 3 times as long as any other wood or paper pulp based cat litter (apparently this saves money, which can be spent on cat food and 'nip!), oh and it doesn't track too much and isn't all dusty and horrid either...
I think you'll all agree this is far better than a photo of one of us using the litter box! ;)
Our next environmentally sound product of choice here has just gotta be Bozita cat meat, it's just so darn yummy for a start and comes in easy to open and recyclable Tetra Packages, so it's also light weight and easy to store beacuse of it's shape. The other benifits that Bozita provides a perfectly balanced diet for your pet's entire life cycle. This food is made exclusively from 93% fresh lean Swedish meat - which means it's antibiotic and hormone free and none of the chickens have been battery farmed or had their beaks clipped! There are no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives, no nasty sugar in it, is wheat gluten free, while containing a high level of taurine to look after our eyes and reproductive systems (ok that last benifit is a bit lost on Tigmut'hep and myself, but it's great for Isis). It also contains a natural betaglucan they call Macrogard® to help keep us fit and healthy as it boosts our immune systems. Oh and did I mention that it's incredibally tasty or that the Terta packs are made to reseal between meals?! It comes in a whole host of tasty flavours too, like reindeer which is Tigmut'hep's fave!
Again don't you think this is so much better than a photo of Tigs with his face in a big bowl of food?! ;)
Though not wishing to dissapoint anycat, here's a shot of Tigmut'hep after a heavy night on the 'nip! All our 'nip is organically grown by My Mummy and harvested at it's peak, carefully dried and snorted in abundance by our housemate and self confessed addict...

This first photo is my very first meeting with Isis on July 14th last year when she arrived home with My Mummy and Dad. We never hissed at each other, not even once - well Tigmut'hep does enough hissing for all of us here! ;)
Within just 10 days we were both snuggling with My Mummy at night and spending much of our time together, even though she was 6 months old we found we had lots in common as well as sharing the same Father! So it didn't come as a surprise that after just 1 month of living with us Isis and I had become bestest friends and snuggle buddies... Though I was more than a little shocked the first time she decided to give me a darn good wash, I mean shortly after she'd tackled my ears and face she robbed me of all dignity and decided to clean my lovely belly fluffs! Oh yes not one single fur escapes the tongue of Isis, not even if you wriggle and squirm and tell her to leave your mancatly bits alone... She was one determined girlykitten and has grown into one very strong minded ladycat and an excellent momma cat too, but oh how my dignity has suffered at times, although I have to admit my fur has never felt better! Even if often left feeling like a big soggy lump while she carries on with her own personal grooming - how does her tongue cope with all the millage?! But even if she does occasionally bully me into having an extra wash when all I want is a peaceful nap, when I'm really down and feeling unwell and more than a little sorry for myself she's sweet and snuggles up to me to let me know I'm not alone... What more could a mancat what in life than to have a 'sis like that around? She's the best thing that ever happened to me other than finding My Mummy!
Then just when I think life is as good as it gets she goes and produces a litter of cute little Aby kittens for me to help her raise! :) It's such a privilege to be there for her and to have those cute little kitten nieces and nephews here to love for a while... Well they sure are cute and I somehow think I've found my own special niche in life! That of beloved Mummy's boy, well cared for bother and adoring uncle... For me life is as sweet as can be and I'm already looking forward to Isis next lot of kittens so I can get back to dotting on them! Yep, it's wonderful!!! :)

Yes, 'sis got lots more purrty Rosettes after winning her Open Class, getting Best of Breed, winning the Any Colour Aby Not Bred by Owners class, coming a very respectable 2nd in the Foreign Junior Adult class and finally 3rd in a huge class cats not coming from the local area that the show was held in! Oh and she won a mousie toy too as well as a gorgeous golden coloured Challenge Certificate that makes the 2nd of the 3 she needs to gain her Champion title like I did ages ago before I had My Mummy... The good thing is the fame isn't going to her head, and she was happy to get her nose into the bowl with Tigmut'hep and me still as we scoffed the Applaws! :)
Talking about chicken, my silly Mummy forgot to put the roasty chicken in the oven for 2 hrs - well the 2 hrs thing was Dad's fault as he was supposed to call her after 45 mins and didn't and Mummy just carried on doing some housework that needed doing... Anyway the Sunday roast was eventually cooked, but it was pretty late which meant I had to eat my dinner before the chicken was cooked and so had to have a second dinner made up from some of the chicken stock and roasty chicken - what a hardship! ;) Anyway you'll be pleased to know I somehow managed to scoff all the chicken with just a little help from Isis and Tigmut'hep... :) The really good thing is it was a big chicken and so there'll be more of it later in the week!!!
Come to Ramses little chicken you know I love you...

We are however keeping plenty of soft food on hand as our friend Baby Mao has hurt his jaw and chipped a big tooth and seems to have lost a little one! :( While there will be a large bucket of KFC to keep HRH Yao-lin going before My Mummy manages to cook us all some juicy turkey! :) You can all test our yummy Reindeer Paté too, it's just the best! :)

It seems that she'd worked out fast that since the paint was nearly dry she could probably get most of it off with my lovely sctitchy brush! :) Well you all know that I love to be brushed, so what had once looked like a complete disaster and seemed to be about to be compounded by the horrors of the bath, could in fact be sorted by having My Mummy give me a darn good brushing and then grudgingly letting her carefully rub the remaining paint off my face furs.
So after a good deal of brushing and quite some careful rubbing of the fur around my face that got painted I am pretty much back to normal and looking mighty gorgeous. While there is a little incresed lightness where the paint once was a few more brushing sessions and I'll be good as new. See Dad I didn't need a nasty bath and I no longer need to put a contract out on you! ;)
