Buddha Turk

Turk has a favourite pose in which he often falls asleep (I've mentioned this before), and I recently found out its called the "Buddha position" and is commonly attributed to the Scottish Fold cat breed!
I wonder if my Turkinator has some fold in his bloodline... :P

Sleepy Turk

You know how cats spend so much time asleep? Well, Turk is no exception. 
He loves the damp towel that lies on my bathroom floor when I get out of the shower. If my hubby leaves the lid of his stamp collecting box lying on the bed Turk will climb into it. And he is a pretzel cat! He folds himself up into the strangest positions when he sleeps!

Snuggling With Diva

Turk and Minx love to snuggle with Diva! And she's often the one who will seek out one of the other furbabies in the house to snuggle with them!

Turk Playing Fetch!

It was a little tricky to get photos and play fetch at the same time, but I managed to get a few shots of Turk playing "fetch" with me on my bed! 
He uses all sorts of things to play fetch with and this day it was an old slipper of mine! He brings it to me, I throw it, and he brings it back! When he drops it on the bed, and I take it to throw it, he goes flat on the bed and his pupils get all big as he waits for me to throw it! After a while he switched to a folded piece of paper, and then all the other cats came to see what he was up to and he didn't want to play anymore.

Another Mini Me Moment

Greebo barely gives Minx the time of day, but I so often find the two of them mirroring each other!

Beautiful Diva

Is she not the most beautiful cat!!?!


And she is still the little acrobat in the house! She's most often the one climbing the security gates, and her favourite game is to make my heart stop by jumping up onto the staircase railing!!

Taxi and Me

My darling Taxi, my brick wrapped in silk, goes wherever I go. 
If I go to the bathroom or take a shower he opens the door to let himself in so he can join me. One Sunday night, after baking the whole weekend, I was exhausted and my hubby ran a bath for me and I haven't had a bath in aaaaages! Taxi thoroughly enjoyed this as I was down on his level and he walked round and round the edge of the bath talking softly and rubbing his head on the bath.
For some strange reason, my Taxi doesn't "bump heads" with me. He is very lovable, and when I talk to him he puts his head down and "bumps heads" with whatever he is standing on!

Minx's Favourite Places


Minx, who is about six months old now, has two spots in the house where we are guaranteed to be able to find her at some point during the day.
The one place is the corner of the one couch in the living room. Its just the one corner- the back end of the armrest where it meets the backrest.
And her other favourite spot is the top corner of a shelf of the desk in the study- whether there are books there or not!
