“If cats looked like frogs we’d realize what nasty, cruel little bastards they are. Style. That’s what people remember.”
― Terry Pratchet, Lords and Ladies
Mr & Mrs Potter moved out of the little house next door to us while Mr T was in the land of Oz; so now we have a new neighbour, Ida.
Ida is owned by two dogs & three cats.
The dogs are named Cheyenne (who looks like a Golden Retriever with black fur) and Angel (a 17 year old Jack Russel with failing senses). Angel is the antithesis of all things angelic, at least once a day, she and Cheyenne stand on their side of the fence; hackles raised, teeth bared and nose to nose with Paddy and Ruby on our side. Riotous barking ensues. Two of the cats are Chiquita & Pepito, elegant, aloof Siamese cats.
Then there is Lexie; a friendly, fluffy cat who wears the most stylish eye-make up.
We were having “getting to know you” drinks with Ida the other day when I remarked on how beautiful Lexie’s eye were, to which Ida agreed they were indeed beautiful but added that they can be cruel too, especially when Lexie is on a bloodthirsty killing spree.
One of Lexie’s secret sleeping spots is on the roof of Ida’s laundry; these are the images I took of her this morning.
Oh oh, looks like I’ve been spotted. Damn Paparazzi!
Hey wise guy!
Ok, hand over the camera and nobody gets hurt, capisce?
Now, that’s what I call style.
All my love

Beautiful. Just beautiful! The light on her is delicious and your skill is evident.
That means a lot to me, coming from you. Thanks C xxx
I love rubbing a furry tummy, so I hope she is as accommodating when she passes through your garden. So few of our local cats are, but then that’s probably a good thing with the cats we have. The few that are friendly we can’t get rid of!
I haven’t tried actually rubbing her tummy just yet, just her ears and chin but I’d love to. Maybe once we get to know each other a bit better I’ll chance it.
I have to come and meet the new neighbours. Beautiful shots M, as always.

Ah! Ms Lexie, a real cool cat. Thanks Mandy.
Definitely stylish! What a pity we cant learn from cats. Armani who came to lodge at my house for a short while taught me a few lessons about how to live life!
Armani! Now that’s a stylish name.
