Check out the new layout! You like? The background is a photo I took in Man Mo Temple, in Hong Kong, here is the full one below.
Since I had to spent a LONG time figuring out all the changes I made to the blog (CSS is NOT my friend) I am already all blogged out, before having even written a word. Also yesterday’s post was pretty long and intense so to balance it out, here are kitties!
We have two, Blue Cat and Green Cat. Not Blue and Green, mind you – Blue Cat and Green Cat. If you don’t call them by their full names, they will ignore you…in exactly the same way as they do when they are called by anything else. So yeah. Consider yourself warned.
Their last owners left them behind when they moved from Hong Kong, in what can only be described as a shoe box masquerading as a cat hotel. The poor things had just about enough room to turn around and that was it. There was nowhere else for them to go. So of course we rescued them. Best decision we ever made – they are the most affectionate and hilarious little things.
Their original names are Indy and Leo, but since we didn’t know which was which, we called them Blue Cat and Green Cat after the colour of their collars – until we had proper names sorted. That was a year ago…..We actually found that nothing else suited them quite as well as Blue Cat and Green cat, so those two names stuck.
They started their time with us by continuously climbing into my underwear draw and sleeping in it. Which was *less* than ideal although it was hilarious to open the drawer in the morning and find a cat in there looking back at me as if to say “Yes? You’re kind of disturbing me, can I help you?”.
Then they graduated to sleeping atop the clean laundry.
They are however very supportive of my writing, always getting involved by plopping themselves down on the keyboard or on my arm (always the right one for some reason). Typing as the bloodflow to your hand is slowly cut off is quite a challenge!
