Our lovely cats from Romania, doua dragosti pisici Romani

Pixie and Pufa arrived last night and Pufa is being known as Pufa-Pebbles while she gets used to a name change to Pebbles.  Pufa means, I think, fluffy, but it's a bit inexpedient in English.  They are settling in and far from being disabled, Pixie managed to climb onto the high shelves that I thought were cat proof... though she still has a bandage on her bad paw and favours it slightly.  She is tiny!

She likes the climbing tree we made and quickly found her way to the top of it.

Pebbles is a chunkier lady and has a practical outlook on life and her first act was to check out the facilities!

Both cats can purr for Romania however and are delighted to be given attention!

I'm forever blowing bubbles





We bought some bubble liquid for the girls, largely to get a bubble blower [and it's the best one I've ever used, hurrah for the Pound Shop, even though I will be making up my own bubble liquid to replace it]  and they have been entranced.  So here is a post of gratuitous bubble fun.

Staring bemused


Are they SUPPOSED to stick together?
But.. which one shall I chase?
caught as she patted it... the look on her face as it popped was priceless
exhausted after her exertions


Bubbles are fun but care should be taken not to let them go near pets' or children's eyes. 
Bubble liquid: about half a cup of washing up liquid to about a pint of water and a good teaspoon of glycerine or, I understand, corn syrup.  Shake well and leave overnight.  It doesn't work right away for some reason.
