- November, 2010
Tia was our beautiful long-haired moggie. We weren’t ever sure what kind of cat Tia was, but we believed her to be part Norwegian Forest. We adopted Tia from Cat’s Protection in Bridgend. She was the first cat we’ve owned, and she was followed shortly by Berry. Even though Tia was the most gentle, loving cat I’ve ever met, she always used to bring us back little presents of various bird, mouse and the odd frog. Because Tia was always an outdoor cat, one day in November, 2010, she went out, and just never came back. We called and searched for her for ages, I even put up posters, but we never found her. Tia was the sort of cat that was so gentle and dopey, that a child could hold her upside down and she wouldn’t care in the slightest. Everyone who knew Tia would always say what a beautiful cat she was, and she had the cutest little face. I’m sorry, this is the best photo I can find of her at the moment.

Berry is my black short-haired moggie. Although, her coat does get pretty thick in the winter. We got Berry from a breeder in Abergavenny, as a kitten. We’re not sure of Berry’s full breed, but we know for definite that she’s half ragdoll. Although Berry’s the second cat we’ve had, we’ve had her the longest. I wouldn’t say Berry’s a weird cat, but she has a very unique personality. She’s quite a temperamental cat, and she always has been. She gets on great with me, and I know she would never hurt me purposely, but then she’s not so great with alot of other people. A couple of years ago we had an accident, where Berry was looking out the window, I’m not sure my little sister must have done something to agitate her, and she attacked her face and head. Berry’s never done anything like that since, but it just goes to show how temperamental she is, and we always take caution nowadays with her around kids and babies. Don’t get the wrong idea about Berry, because she really is a beautiful, loving cat. I adore her. Berry’s been there for me through so much. Even though she’s aloud to go out, she’s always preferred to stay inside in the warm, she’s more or less a house cat like her mother. I like that she’s always been more of an indoor cat, because she’s always there when I need a cwtchy hot water bottle! Even though I love her to bits, she has got to be the most moany cat I know! She’s also very greedy! Berry’s always been a very dominant cat, and always tolerates the company of other cats in our household. There was a point that she actually began to get along with Tia and Kinny, but when we lost them and she went back to her old ways. Sometimes I wish that we had let Berry be a mother, because I think letting her have kittens would’ve softened her up a bit! Anyways, I could go on all day about how much I love her, she’s getting on a bit now, and I couldn’t even begin to imagine my life without her. I consider her a very important person in my life.

Pumpkin was my gorgeous short-haired, ginger moggie. We received her in August of last year, from a friend of my nan’s. “Kinny” which is what we called her, was given to us for free, although she was a ginger female. She was the last kitten for sale, and the woman just wanted her to go to a good home. When we got Kinny she wasn’t exactly the “kitten kitten” that we wanted, she must have been about 16 weeks old, but we fell in love with her so much we didn’t care. Kinny was my baby, and I loved her dearly. We clicked straight away, and she always used cwtched on my lap for hours. Kinny was sadly clipped from behind by a car. She was found in the gutter of the roundabout down the road from us, by our neighbour. We were devastated to have lost Kinny as she really was part of our family. She was a beautiful cat, with the loveliest temperament you could imagine. I hope she’s in a happy place right now!

Midna is our cute, little ragdoll-persian kitten. Obviously, you would expect her to be longhaired from those two breeds. We got Midna on May 17th of this year, from some breeders in Abercynon. We went to visit before the day they were aloud to be re-homed, to “reserve” one, and you could say that Midna chose me rather than I chose her. There was two litters that we could’ve chose from. The two mothers and their kittens were all in this big wicker basket, and Midna came right up to me and cwtched her head into my knee, it was the cutest thing ever. I couldn’t have picked any other one then, because I just fell in love with her. We took her home, and she settled in right away. We absolutely adore her. We got her to keep Berry company, but Berry hasn’t exactly got used to her yet. The vet says she has tabby colouring, whatever that means, I just know that she’s brown, black/grey and ginger. She loves to explore and chase Berry’s tail, which isn’t good because they don’t exactly get on all that well at the moment. She also loves cwtches and people giving her kisses. She’s only little now, but the main reason I made this blog was so that others could see her grow up, not just me. Also, so I can look back on her life, and what she was like at each moment in time.
