Farewell Oscar

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013


I write this with tears streaming down my face. Our beloved Oscar lost his battle with kidney disease on Sunday. We our heartbroken. He was, and always will be, a huge part of our family and we will remember him forever.

A bit of a theme for today’s Caturday, bet you can’t guess what it is!…

It’s a beautiful autumn day here with lots of lovely sunshine. Oscar loves the window sill in our bedroom when it’s sunny like this. It’s also a great place to photograph him as the light is great.

Happy Caturday

Oscar’s Charity Badges

Oscar's charity badges
Oscar Badges available on Etsy

Our kitty Oscar has become rather popular on Facebook recently, with his comical grumpy looks and handsome face.
He’s not really grumpy but the camera always makes him look that way. You can see more of him on his Facebook Page.

He wants to help cats who really are grumpy – those in shelters and rescue centres. 50p from every sale of his badges will go to a chosen charity. This month it is my local rescue Holly Hedge. They do great work with cats and dogs. By purchasing a pair of grumpy Oscar badges you will be helping kitties in need :)

Hello, it’s Daz here again doing another guest post for Caturday. I thought I’d share some slightly unusual photos of our cats using one of my favourite photographic techniques – “multiple exposures”.

I mostly take photos using film cameras, some of which have special buttons that allow you to take more than one photo on the same piece of film – this leads to some very interesting effects! Along with this, I get my film developed in the “wrong” chemicals which often gives crazy, saturated colours.

If you like my photos, you can see more on my website.

Crafty Cat Toys

The more money you spend on a cat toy, the less they are likely to play with it – or at least that’s how it seems most of time! Maybe that’s why our cats love this so much, because it cost nothing to make!

Daz has been hoarding the tubes from the centre of toilet rolls for weeks so he could create this for the cats. He taped together in a pyramid shape with some electrical tape (as that’s all we had to hand but any tape will do). We put a few biscuits in each of the tubes and left the cats to it, they had such fun. It’s a great way to keep them entertained and it stops them from munching all their food too quickly.

Oscar pays no attention to Da Bird or other cat toys. Scraps of fabric are another matter entirely! He loves them.

Pixie being adorable as usual.

Arty, stressed again.

I post a *lot* of photos of cats on Instagram. I can’t help it, they keep doing cute stuff that I have to share!
If you don’t use Instagram I’ve now added a tab to my Facebook Page so you can see my Instagram photos there instead – yey!
