Comparisons - how we have changed over the years


As you probably know by now Joan takes loads and loads of photos of us and from time to time she sends them in to competitions and then forgets all about them.

She had done just that a few weeks ago and got the surprise of her life when she opened the local paper a couple of weeks ago and saw a picture of Oscar and me looking straight back at her!

It seems that we had been judged local winners (for the Ipswich Area) in the 'Whiskas Great Mates' competition and she knew nothing about it. When we got home there was a note from a parcel delivery company to say that there was a parcel they had tried unsuccessfully to deliver.

Joan rang the depot and the very next day it came!


Oscar - head study

Max in 'regal' mode

We could hardly wait to see what was in the huge parcel and the first thing to appear as Joan started to unpack it was a huge 'double' cat bed.

There was a little metal tag attached to it so I checked it out to make sure that it didn't still have the price on it (it didn't) and to see what it was made of!

Then, once I was happy, we all decided to investigate it and to play with the little fishing rod toy which was packed inside it.

Max and Oscar decided that would make quite a fun toy so they had a game with it whilst I settled down on the new bed. Then they scampered off with it on to the climber so that they could have a quick tug-of-war!

Also in the box was a huge 'cat activity centre' and a whole month's supply of Whiskas cat food - grrrrreat!!

Lara checks out the 'tag'

This looks like fun!

Especially as it is 'portable'

The 'boys' are pretty well good friends now and they do have quite rough games which I like to join in with. However Oscar hadn't really grasped the concept of settling down beside Max and he does have this tendency to sit on him rather than beside.

Needless to say this isn't really much fun for Max as Oscar is now quite big and heavy and the end result can be one or two quite rude words from Max.

However, at long last, the other day Oscar finally realised that it was possible to share a bed with Max without sitting on him so Joan rushed off to get the camera just to prove to all our readers that it can be done - it just takes practice!

As you will have gathered we are now a happy little group who continue to delight Joan with our antics on a daily basis.

Oscar sits on Max

and then finally manages 'beside'

The last couple of weeks have been fairly eventful for us as you can see and this morning the post contained a very special letter for young Oscar.

We were told that he has been accepted as a PAT cat and can go out visiting hospitals and nursing homes under the 'Pets as Therapy' scheme.

We are keeping our paws crossed that he will enjoy the work and that he will get some really nice people to visit locally. If it all works out well we will tell you more about it in the weeks to come. If you want to know more about the scheme please click here to go to the Pets as Therapy website.
