A Cat called Treacle

We went along to Edinburgh Cat Protection today and found ourselves a cat! This is Treacle a beautiful young male cat who likes to explore the flat, sit on the windowledge and watch the world go by and sometimes even likes to lie down and rest!

When our lovely rabbit Anya left us to cross over the Rainbow Bridge, we had often thought of getting another rabbit, but we needed to first make sure the flat would be mouse proof. Rabbit food attracts mice you see and any old building in Edinburgh has mice. However we eventually realised that because of the mice, another rabbit wouldn't be practical. So we started to think about getting a cat and eventually that's exactly what we did.....

I've made quite a few cat toys from upcycled materials, and I'll blog about them in the next few days. He's playing with them happily already.

Hello, Treacle is adorable. So happy you adopted your new kitty. I am sure he will take care of any mice around. Have a happy weekend!

I trust you have posted the appropriate signs warning the mice of this new development.

Good for you for adopting a rescue animal. He looks to be content. Yesterday, I posted about a recent book I read (How the Scots Invented the Modern World) and I'd be interested in your take on it.

Ohh! Such a sweet little face. I hope you have a long and happy time with your new friend.

Here's to Treacle and his owners! Not forgetting the folk who look after cats before they are re-homed.
