Sunday Selfies and Much More!

I haven't been commenting over the last 2 weeks and am now trying to catch up a bit. We went on a cruise around Scandinavia, then on our return we went to see Vidock as he was the warhorse in the British Percheron Centenary celebration at the Museum of Living History near Chichester.
There are some photos of us with him and Virginia after the numerous cat selfies.
After we left there we headed towards Hastings for a few days and visited the Cats Protection shelter so we could meet the cats we sponsor.

Of course we were able to get selfies there!
Visit the Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head to see more selfies.



This is Soxy and he was only too willing to have his selfie taken. He is a 13 year old male.

He let me know he wanted to get closer.....

so we had a cuddle.

Next up was Vinny who enjoyed some ear scritches

And back scritches. Vinny is a 15 year old male.

This is Puszka, a pretty 10 year old tortie.

After a slight hesitation she came over to say hello.

Next was Oscar, a 9 year old male.

Not a very good photo, but he was enjoying head and tummy rubs at the same time.

Last, but not least came Twiggy. He said that he wanted to do a selfie just like Soxy. I think he did it very well.

He seemed to like Ivor a lot!

He gave him a lot of head butts. Maybe he was hoping to get his bowl refilled!
Twiggy is a 2 year old male.
All of these cats and many more can be adopted from the Hayward's Heath Cats Protection Centre in Sussex.

As I mentioned earlier, after getting off the ship we headed towards Chichester to meet Virginia and Vidock again.
The last time we saw them it was a very wet day and Vidock had obviously been enjoying rolling in the mud.

This time it was a hot and sunny day. Virginia had spent a lot of time and effort getting him bathed and clean for the show.

He enjoyed treats from both of us and was very well behaved.

The highlight for us was seeing him taking the part of the warhorse. He looked magnificent along with his rider, braided and wearing an original World War 1 saddle.

He did Virginia and everyone connected with him proud as he followed the gun. It was lovely to meet up with them again.

    Viddock is a great looking horse, a bit big for a cat like me to ride, I guess I would need a Shetland MOL

  13. We had no idea that you sponsored so many kitties. We know Eric and Flynn are so proud of you, and we certainly enjoyed meeting them. Of course, we wish they didn't have to be in a shelter, but it looks as if they have a great one. It was so nice to have you sharing on the hop. Sounds like a great trip.

  24. What a beautiful group of cats! We wish they all could find loving homes but elderly black cats are so frequently overlooked. (I absolutely love them.) Your sponsorship is a perfect tribute to Eric and Flynn .
