Does your cat do this?

 This is Ziggy, our lovely cat but he can be a bit naughty.His latest trick is to pull the washing off the line!Does your cat do that?He is an amazing jumper and just leaps into the air ,grabs the washing and keeps going until it falls on the lawn.He has also learned that if he knocks his munchies packet over and keeps knocking it eventually some will fall out but we are on to him now.
 This is a pastel portait of Ziggy that my friend Sheila did for me.It is in pastels.What an amazing talent she has.
This is another portrait of Ziggy done by my 5 yr old granddaughter Ruby in about three minutes.Pretty good I think.
We are off to Madrid tomorrow until Saturday.We have tickets booked for the three main art galleries,one each morning.Other sightseeing in the afternoons.This will be a real test for my knee.Back soon!


  1. What a handsome fellow! And both art works are pretty wonderful too.
    We haven't been to Madrid, so I'm looking forward to your posts when you get back. Hope the knee stands up to all the walking! Have a lovely time

    P.S. We think we're going to try Switzerland in the summer, but we haven't booked anything yet. We're off to the Lakes again for May Bank Holiday

  2. Clever cat. Looks a bit like our Fleur. Her trick is to stick out her paw to trip me up as I walk past. She also tries to type on the keyboard when I'm computing.

  3. One of our cats does a similar thing. Sometimes in the winter I put things on radiators to dry and she reaches up and hooks things off and then rolls on them! Have a lovely holiday:)

  4. None of our cats does that but we have a dog with a sock fetish. I couldn't understand why I had so many single socks until I spotted him eating one! Have a great time in Madrid.

  5. Cheeky Ziggy - and to look at the pastel portrait you would think butter wouldn't melt. Mind you he has got a mischievous glint in his eye in the picture from your grand daughter - love it! Enjoy Madrid x Jane

  6. Ziggy is quite amazing, I love both pictures, your granddaughters is so adorable.

  7. Such a beautiful cat! Hope you've had a lovely time in Madrid. Ros
