The top picture is Lily in "full cute" mode, pawing at the air. One of these days I've got to get that on video, as the still photo doesn't do it justice!

Lily begging for a piece of chicken. She does this even if she just sees a closed hand, just in case I'm holding some food, but actually seeing food keeps her attention longer!

And quite a character too! Though, as much as she can be a pest, she's so affectionate, I can't be angry with her, however many times she knocks things over!
I've tried cutting the empty yoghurt pots (I should have thought of that myself) but Lily chases the pieces around the house, getting yoghurt into the rugs, so I think that's something for the warmer weather, when I can put them outside and leave the door open, so I know when she's finished.

That's a good idea Sheila, a better idea would be to get a large bowl and pour some in for her :evillaugh: ;)

Lily is looking really shiny and healthy bless her.  Those pics are lovely :Luv2: :hug:

Lily still loves her yoghurt I had to stop giving her the empty pot to lick clean, as she'd get her head stuck and start running backwards. While that was sort of funny, it was also distressing, as she was in a panic, so now I have to give her a spoonful on the lid instead, every time I have some.
Unless, that is, I have one of these. She can get right into it, without it becoming lodged on her head, though she's growing fast, so I don't know how long that'll last.

Marmite and butter  :rofl: :rofl: :hug:

I love soft cheese spread and marmite on toasted granary bread - always make an extra slice for Bonnie  ;)

Mary, my Tiffany loves marmite - especially smeared on a blob of butter - it's because it's yeasty, I suppose - I have known cats go mad for brewer's yeast tablets

as for plants, I remember coming home to find two window boxes of tulips sporting rows of  bare stems, and no sign of the flowerheads anywhere

It's definitely the plant she's after. I'm not sure what it is, but it's got fern-like leaves, so when she touches one part of the plant, other parts move. Drives her wild!
I'm going to have to disappoint Lily as far as the curry is concerned. It has loads of onion in it, so not safe for cats. I can see some furious fights ahead, or I'll have to eat standing in the middle of the room so she can't reach!  :rofl:

Lovely pics of the fab 3 and the tree.  Gonna have one big happy family very soon if you ask me  :hug:

Trees and beds are always gonna be a big mystery I think for us all.  The amount of times I've thought about taking things to the RSPCA cos she isn't using them is unbelievable. Maybe it's like us wearing the same clothes all the time, we get fed up  :rofl:

Is she after the plant or the butterfly?

I once said to Bonnie "these are marmite crisps and you won't like them" shoving one under her nose and YES, you guessed it, she licked all the flavour off while I sat there like her servant :evillaugh:

Well so much for one peaceful meal a week. Ever since she arrived, Lily has tried to get food from my plate, except if it's curry.
Yesterday she started mithering me while I was eating my Thai green curry, so I gave her a bit of the sauce on my finger, thinking it would put her off.
Like hell it did, she loved it!
No more peaceful meals for me.

 When Bramble won't play, Lily likes to fight with house-plants.

It sometimes feels more like a Cold War than "getting along", especially when there's food involved!  :rofl:
I've been really lucky though, and there hasn't been any open hostility, just the occasional game that goes a little too far for Bramble.
Poor old Bramble used to get on Clio's nerves by being too playful, now she's on the receiving end from Lily.
Obviously it was upsetting when Clio went AWOL, and I'd rather she hadn't, but her going and returning when she did probably helped. Lily's arrival might not have gone so well if there had been two settled cats already in the house.

Lily nearly lost her favourite sleeping spot earlier today as Bramble tried it out. Luckily, she didn't seem too keen, and Lily's back there now.

Clio coming home was the best Christmas present I could have wished for, but this is a nice bonus.She and Lily stayed like this for about half an hour. I don't expect them to ever be best friends - Clio has never been that keen on other cats - but this is encouraging. Not a hiss or a growl to be heard!

Lily, at least, is using the cat tree. The others just use the scratching post part, though I usually find Clio sitting on the top waiting for me when I come downstairs.

 :rofl:
I should probably move the tree.
The reason it's there is that Bramble was very shy of people, even me, so I put the tree next to me to get her a little nearer. It seems to have worked, she still isn't keen on other people, but comes to me often, just not on the tree, so I should probably move it. I'll wait until after the new year, there's been enough change for the time being.
For now, I can enjoy watching Lily playing right next to me.

I was given some money to buy something for the cats and, as the old cat tree is getting a bit tatty, I thought I'd replace it. I couldn't afford to get one exactly the same, but it turned out the one I got has parts that are interchangeable with the existing one, so I've ended up with one that's better than both.
I thought that Lily might try and commandeer it, and so far I was right, but at least the other two won't be bothered by her while she's using it.

A damn sight better than the one I took Lily to when I got her checked for a microchip. That one was nearer to me, but spoke to me like crap, and I wasn't sure he'd treat animals any better. I went out of my way to go to a practice I had some confidence in, and I'm very glad I did. I think Lily would agree!

It looks like she's a fan of Ed Byrne, but she doesn't like the BBC2 logo!
I remembered to ask some questions at the vet. It was ketamine, among other drugs, but I was surprised to learn that the stitches weren't glued. If the vet ever decides to change careers, he could become a tailor!
