What Hipster Cats Love To Eat

5 Am 




Rolling in time for hipster Shoreditch cats, except we live in Derbyshire but hey that is a moot point!

I truntled downstairs to get a glass of water as I  have a poorly throat still  , the cats are in bed with Rollie sleeping on top of his Igloo bed don't ask ( read here to find out more about his sleeping habits ) no passing here for sympathy * cue dead pan laugh *  I spy that Jack has his eyes focued on a spot under the kitchen storage trolley I look under there is a mouse, now it wasn't doing a song and dance routine I hasten to add neither was it holding cheese or being middle class quinoa. it was just simply sitting there doing mouse actions , not the YMCA but just twitching.


The Mouse

The mouse the lambasted in many a cartoon and comical moment except when it is in my kitchen remembering it is 5 Am so then I call the husband instead of gently whispering in his ear to remove the mouse I bellowed up the stairs. House woken , grumpy husband , grumpy teen bemused

"Hello Monday"


The Cats

Rollie nor Jack couldn't give a flying paw about the fuss they had caused and I blame them of course * coughs After all the fuss that died down and the mouse had been released , I swear it was mocking the cats. Then I got to thinking about how much do I really know my cats and this is where Applaws come in as they have a questionnaire on Facebook about how well you know your cat or your dog, and going on this morning I though that the answer to the first question would be that cats spent most of their time catching mice but apparently this isn't the case, I'll not spoil it for you but do go on and have a go for yourselves.



Dining choices for Rollie and Jack 


In reality I am sure Rollie and Jack would like 5 star dining and I was quite shocked when I looked at A recent infographic that some pet foods only contain 4% natural food where as Applaws contains 70% . I mixed feed both Rollie and Jack and after this I shall be looking to at petted a little bit for carefully as cats have delicate tummies too .

Disclosure: Rollie and Jack are being a hamper as a thank you for this post, as I speak they are stalking the postman , we are on postman number 2 we don't know what happened to the first one , all that was left was his postman bag .....  I did hear something heavy being dragged through the cat flap one day but I am sure it wasn't a leg .....

  1. We used to have a 'recuperation lounge' in our airing cupboard for the mice we rescued, so they could warm up and get their breath back before being set free!

  2. I love the expression on your cat's face. I hope the postman arrives soon with the goods, before there are fatalities ;)

  10. Your cats sound like wonderful characters. I recently tripped over a dead mouse that our cat had left me at the bottom of the bed. My cat seems to be on a mission to murder as many mice as he can manage!

  11. My dad's cats tend to bring back all love animals! Mice and birds especially. The amount of times my dad has come home to find a bird flying around his house is hilarious

  16. Stella only finds dead creatures, she's too fat and slow to catch the alive ones! :) We can tell you the doggy Applaws is nommy so I bet the puddytat version is too :)

  17. Cecil only ever brought us half-mice. He'd eat the tasty bits & leave us the leftovers. And then go bin-diving for chicken bones. He left us in a huff when we bought the wrong cat food & went back to his feral roots.
