Why My Cats Mean So Much To Me

My pets which are cats come as endless bundles of joy to me , at times I don't always quite realise it as I am live reporting from my kitchen about a mouse that is loose.

Much hilarity is to be had , I do think the cats and mice are in cahoots over this , I can hear the conversation now behind the blue shed in my garden.

"SO Rollie you are second in the leader board of mice in the house  , with Jack in first not forgetting the extra points for making your owner scream "

I have rung my husband at work before now at work before when I have seen a mouse on the stairs of course he didn't come home instead I relied on the teen to do the deed of removing the mouse.

Initially when my son ( J)  was born we had had cats as I had always had cats as a child , my midwife however was very nervous about the cats thinking that they would smother the baby. As my son are he developed eczema which is hereditary , the eczema was very raw and weepy. It broke our hearts to have the cats rehomed but we knew that it was for the best at the time. Fast forward a few years till J was around 10 years old and we got Rollie the 1st, Rollie the 1st was very much like the cat out of Harry Potter sadly he was run over which was heart breaking for J and for the rest of us.

We had though got Jack at this time as we had though Rollie the first had gone missing so got another kitten after a long time of looking till we found him again ( but as mentioned previously he was unfortunately run over ) 

We got another kitten that looked like the first this was Rollie the 2nd who was more mischievous than Rollie the 1st ever was ! While one kitten was climbing up your leg another was sitting on top of the fridge or kitchen cabinets. Oh the fun we have had we they set off the house alarm in the middle of the night !

Rollie as a happy kitten!

The cats are family more than beds and a great comfort to all , like myself recently getting over my depression they are the best medicine for me. Indeed they are how this blog came about with it Rollie was the catalyst for the blog, Rollie and Jack would make great book material James Herriot would have loved them I am sure of it.

Rollie with this chacterful wink.

Petplan have a superb competition running currently. You just need to tweet or upload a picture of them telling them what makes your pet special.


This is a sponsored post ~ currently Rollie is sitting on the side again and I am fearing for my rare Windy Miller ornament.


  1. What a lovely post. We always had pets when I was growing up and it breaks my heart that with the life we lead we can't have one right now. I loved reading all about your cats through. Really made me smile.

  2. I love that pic of Rollie as a kitten - beautiful. I think pets are great, for kids, for adults, for any age really. They are so lovely to hang around - and they don't judge you (much...)

  3. Oh such a heart warming post. My cats were my surrogate babies. It was so hard when they died.

  4. Personally I .am not a fan of pets as I have so many allergies. But your cats look adorable and so cute

  5. I do remember one of my mum's cats come rushing into the living room with a mouse in his mouth. My mum started shouting, 'Get him out!" So Giles went into the kitchen and put it on his plate. He still couldn't understand when he was taken outside with the mouse!

  6. Aw,how lovely.

    I'm more of a dog person and love my dog like he's part of the family x

  7. I love our cat - we started with four and are down to one which breaks my heart - I love Rollie he is gorgeous. I love the attitude cats have! Kaz x

  8. I'm definitely a dog person but love the winky cat pic! Pets most certainly become part of the family. x

  9. I am a dog person that has 3 cats (work that one out) lol with my kids being so young cats are just the easier options for pets (& secretly they are very cute). Maybe deep down I'm a cat person lol
