Once upon a time... - Rumblepurr

Once upon a time, there was a Rumbledad.

This Rumbledad had never had a pussycat of his own. He was persuaded by the wise and wonderful Rumblemum that everything is better with a pussycat (and twice as good with two!) and so they decided to start the Rumblefamily.

Now having never had a pussycat before, Rumbledad had many goofy and irrational rules. One of these crazy rules was that there would be 'NO CATS ON THE COUNTERTOPS!!' Rumblemum heard this and laughed quietly to herself.

Time passed, and Rumbledad saw how cute pussycats were on the countertops. He decided to amend the rule to be 'Cats can ONLY be on the UPPER countertops, where there is no food preperation'. Rumblemum chuckled, but said nothing.

Then one day Rumblemum put a bag on the lower countertop. Imagine her surprise when Rumbledad SCOLDED her for putting a bag on the pussycat's spot! (which was actually the main food preparation area...)

The moral of this story? Cats will ALWAYS win (and the lesson is that nobody should listen to Rumbledad)

Yeahhhh... MY spot....

Pip could use your comforting purrs and woofs...

Our sweet friend Pip has had a devastating few days.  Buddy, the feral cat that they were trying to socialise passed away. Then Sweet Pea, their 20 year-old boy passed away from carcinoma of the mouth that spread to his bones.

Pip has been such a good friend to us, particularly when we lost Inigo last year. His kind words and support really helped us in the darker days and we're so very sorry that he and his family have suffered these losses.

Please, if you wouldn't mind, stop by Pip's blog and spare him some kind words.

I'm outa here!!

Once again, we thwart the Rumblemum's attempts to capture us cuddling... mew ha ha ha!

My sweet and bootiful pal the Admiral is having some health issues - if you could stop by and give her mummy some virtual cuddles I think she could use them.

Well, you guys were right - Rumblepurr

There really IS an upside to the kitten!! Yesterday 'someone' tore into a big bag of nip... who would you suspect, this innocent Maine Coon:
See how innocent my little toes are? Clean and innocent.

Or this clearly naughty kitten?

Note: That is a STOLEN feather toy in his naughty paws...
I TOTALLY blamed the kitten!! Rumblemum did not suspect a THING!

I'm gonna call off the auction, kid is pretty good to have around. Teddy Westlife is still for sale, talk to Miss Huffle...

Lies. All lies. - Rumblepurr

Rumblemum will try to convince you all that yesterday when she went into the bedroom and turned on the light she caught me and Hamlet having a cuddle.

I say pics or it never happened. And it does NOT count that you TRIED to get the camera before we ran away, Rumblemum.

(and if we WERE cuddling... and I'm not saying we were... it would be because we both love the blankie at the end of the bed)

I know not of these 'cuddles' you speak of
