Halloween Fun

As you can see from the photo on the left Joan has been having some fun with our photos to inject a bit of a Halloween theme into them.

Because we are very British cats we don't know too much about pumpkins except that you can use them to make Halloween lanterns like the one that Max is fascinated by.

However we understand that cats in the USA actually eat pumpkin in order to help keep them clear of fur balls - Joan says it has something to do with the fibre content but we have no idea what she means.

Anyway so that we could try it Joan asked a couple of young friends if we could please have the centre of their pumpkin and they let us have loads. Joan cooked it and plans to freeze it in little portions so that we can have some, now and then, if we get problems with fur balls.

Oscar quite liked the taste of pumpkin - I am not sure - and Max had a very little taste and then decided he would wait for something more interesting in the dish.

We hear that at Halloween there are also a lot of witches about so we set off on a witch hunt and look what we found!

Max is busy watching the witch whilst Lara just ignores her!

On the right Oscar is clearly fascintated

We wouldn't of course want our readers to assume that everything always goes well on our photo shoots - we do have to keep Joan on her toes otherwise she could get complacent.

She wants me to tell you that with three lively Birmans in the house the sessions can be quite a challenge and just when she gets a shot lined up it is quite possible that someone will try to steal the limelight.

In the shot on the left the 'phantom paw' suddenly came into shot as she tried to get a picture of me!

In the shots below you can see Oscar making a valiant attempt to attack a piece of tinsel before he decided to do the decent thing and pose for a Christmas shot looking intelligent and alert (he insisted I put that last bit in!)

We do quite enjoy being photographed most of the time just so long as we get to attack the 'props' when the session is over (or half way through if Joan isn't looking!)

As you may have seen from our page last month we have had quite a sad time recently. Joan's Mum died on 27th September and much of October has been taken up with funeral arrangements and sorting out house clearance.

We have made a very special effort to cheer Joan up at this sad time and we know we have been a great comfort even though she had to leave us several times with our cat sitter, Pat.

Joan wanted us to pose with some flowers as a tribute to her Mum and at her Mum's funeral she read a poem about God's Garden.

God looked around His Garden, and He found an empty place.
He then looked down upon this earth, and saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you, and lifted you to rest;
God's Garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain;
He knew that you would never, get well on this earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb So He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered, "Peace Be Thine." It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone
for a part of us went with you, that day God called you home.

This is a photo of Joan's Mum and Dad which was taken in 1985 we include it here as a tribute to both of them

May they rest in peace
