Let me tell you about my cats.
I have 2. Both rescues from the RSPCA.
Tiffany - she is now 9 years old and I am sure she is part Maine Coon. She is a massive cat - 8.7 kgs (19lbs) and as gentle as can be. She is beautifully natured and very talkative. She likes to be "taken" to the toilet - I kid you not. When she is ready to do her business, she comes and cries at your feet until you follow her to the litter and wait while she does her business! Mind you - both cats go outside as they wish during the day (in at night) but still insist on coming inside to use the trays (don't want to get their paws dirty!!)
She is easy to handle and takes medication well.

Elle - is now 7 years old and still very kittenish. She is a torby (part tortoishelle and part tabby). She is the smartest cat I have seen and can read your mind. She knows when you are going to give her medication and reacts accordingly (hides).
She is also a contortonist and when you do catch her to give her medication this is what happens. (At all other times she is affectionate and sweet!!)
|War wounds - all I was trying to do was give her a flea drop on the back of her neck - Let's just say she won this round!|
Tiffany and Elle do not get along unfortunately - and there are battles Royal. Elle - although a lot smaller - usually wins (unless there is food involved!).
Any way - back to sewing - DS and DBIL have just left. It was a great visit. We swam at beaches and pools and went on a lunchtime Sydney harbour cruise which was lovely (funny how you do the touristy things only when visitors are here - even though they both grew up in Sydney but now live on the Gold Coast). As I said it was a lovely visit - but now I can get back to sewing....... I have about a day or two's work to do (for my business) and then I shall pick up the Lutterloh again. Tempted to do so now but am a bit tired. The visit was great but sapped my meager reverses of energy.
I shall rest now for tomorrow I shall conquer the world - or at least the work!
