This is a photo of my cat, Mouse, from back when she was only a year or two old. True to her name, she’s small and timid, but she’s really affectionate and reliably appears at the sound of a cat food tin being opened!

 

Mouse was the only grey kitten in a litter of mostly black kittens and her mum didn’t seem to like her very much (her mum used to remove Mouse from the litter and dump her in the middle of the floor somewhere else), so we ended up giving her cat milk and weaning her on to food a bit early. She’ll usually come over if you click your fingers because that’s what I used to do just before I gave her kitten biscuits.

 
Hope the picture made you smile and feel free to link me to pictures/blog posts of your cats doing funny, cute and amusing things in the comments! I might link to some of my favourites in next week’s #caturday blog. 🙂

Only a brief post, but I hope it gave you a smile!

 

Also, if you haven’t entered my Sterry Cartoons competition yet, have a look at this link [competition details]!

The Top 3 silly suggestions will be drawn by me next Saturday!
Hope you like the idea! 😀

Sterry Cartoons: Desperate Cats

This is a sketch from a while ago, but I thought I’d release it to the wild, wild internet.

Other News

Friday: Had a lovely evening playing blues (on flute) with Ben Carr at the Kings Arms Hotel. Really friendly atmosphere & buzzing with people!

Saturday: Day job in the morning, but spent another afternoon looking at some of Ben Carr’s cartoons and artwork. If all goes to plan, I’ll be collaborating on some new cartoons and animations with him soon! 😀

After leaving Ben’s, I had an hour to wait before the next bus so I popped over to The Harbour House to have a look at their Open Exhibition. The theme this time was “Blue” and it was brilliant to see so many pieces from local artists (including a few from one of my work colleagues, Ian)! I highly recommend a visit. Entry is free and the quality of work is amazing!

Ollie – New Kitten

Here’s Ollie – the newest member of the Sterry household!

A few funny things have happened since he came to live with us and he’s shown himself to have quite a bit of character!

5 Things he really seems to like:

  • Rubbing his face on everything and purring madly. Sometimes he does this to wake me up.
  • Hiding in the bath. He loves trying to attack water, but seemed a bit shocked once when he jumped in the bath, only to find that it was full of water. Here he is hiding in the sink:

  • Playfully biting toes. He’s fairly gentle and doesn’t use claws, but it tickles!
  • Annoying the other cats until they get mad and hiss and growl at him or take a swipe. He nibbles their tails if he’s in a really irritating mood.
  • Weird Sleeping Positions…

He’s a bit mad, but I love him to pieces.
