MasterB has a new friend, a pretty tabby who, I think, lives in one of the houses over the wall. I saw them playing together today, but when I tried to take a photograph of them MasterB rushed towards me and then the tabby ran away. I did get this picture though.
I can’t describe how strange this feels to have a cat who wants feline friends. My years with Cat were a learning curve in cat aggression. He loathed other cats, and the sight of one in the garden would unleash territorial aggression, ferocious yowls and full on fighting where fur literally flew. MasterB likes other cats. I am glad there are other neighbourhood cats who are likeminded.
In another part of London not so far away, MasterB’s face is on the front of the vet’s van. It’s fame, of a sort. Not quite a poster boy, but maybe the first step.
Perhaps you are experiencing some kind of cat owner reincarnation – each new cat in your life offers a different facet of a cat?
Why is MasterB on the front of the vet’s van?
Yet I always knew and accepted that dogs had different characters.
Do you remember when MasterB was invited to a photoshoot in 2011? The vet has now got a van with pictures of pets on it and intends to relaunch the website. MasterB should feature there too. She also bought calendars, cards and bags featuring MasterB and Cousin’s Big Cat from me today.
Vaguely remember. I must say that I think you’ve taken far better photos of him. He looks a bit anxious – as I imagine he would have been.
Great news about selling his pictures though 😀
Thanks. I do too. I was offered a copy of the portrait, but turned it down as I prefer the px I have taken of him. But it works on the van.
oh! can you imagine riding the bus and catching a glimpse of your cat in traffic?! <:-D
It s a bit odd.
How fab is that? 🙂 🙂 🙂
Which bit? I am so pleased the vet wanted his pictures. She bought nearly all my stock!
The vet’s car but of course the new friend as well, I love tabbies, my last cat was a beaut one!
Aah. I am trying to find out where it lives. One of my neighbours has an adopted Burmese but adores tabbies so I am relying on her Miss Marple interest. It is very pretty but doesn’t want to meet me! I just love MasterB having these friends. It’s so sweet. 🙂
A new friend, cat fame and your work out there, too. All good news!
Yep! Tonight we have fog, very atmospheric in all senses and himself has been persuaded in quite early. It looks amazing outside.
Can you get pics of fog?
You could, but at this time of night I don’t think mine old be very interesting!
My cat Teddy is green with jealousy due to the famousness of MasterB! But deep down, he really wants to request an autograph.
My autograph? MasterB isn’t too hot on that sort of thing. 🙂
Ha! That’s a cat for you.
Wow MasterB’s famous! Love it! His new friend looks nice too! =^.^=
S/he does, doesn’t s/he? I wish she weren’t so timid of me.
What a sweet tabby – and how proud I am to know the handsome Bonnet Boy (instead of pin-up boy). Your image, Isobel? I think I recognise it. Such round eyes and ‘andsome features. What an honour! 🙂
Hi, no not one of mine, a professional photographer.
Oh! Master B’s done a photoshoot?!!! What a pro! 🙂
Yep! Looked for you on Twitter earlier hoping for a hash game, will try again later.
Charlie is like Master B. he wants to make friends. There is a new kitty two houses over and I think it may work out. So many of the other cats around here [including Jackie] are not the playful type. I love that he is turning in to a superstar Isobel. It will be billboards next.
This tabby fled MasterB when he first saw him. I wish I had seen the stages of their friendship developing, but it seems to explain why MasterB heads over that section of the wall so much.
Yes, two famous cats; Cat was very much a local personality, greeting people on the pavement, now MasterB is taking a different route to fame.
Let me know how Charlie’s new friend works out. Btw did you see this on twitter? http://www.jackiemorris.co.uk/blog/?p=2308
How cool! He’s going to be the talk of London soon. I wish Att liked to play with other cats. So far we haven’t had much luck. half the time, I don’t think he likes me. Such a grumpy guy.
This made me laugh. More and more I can picture Atticus as a cartoon cat. Can you draw? By next Christmas he could be a contender for Simon’s Cat’s crown.
I can’t draw but the better half can. Att’s really mad about the cold weather today. For some reason it’s my fault and he bit my hand. Now h’es snuggled in front of the heater
There you go! Of course it is your fault. You know Simon’s Cat don’t you?
Not sure that I do actually
Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0ffwDYo00Q This is the first one he made.
Well isn’t that wonderful that MasterB will be “out there” on the vet van – it’s actually a perfect photo of him for the front of the van – it’s like “watch out here I come” !! Congratulations……as for the new tabby visitor – it’s a pretty cat….MasterB has interesting friends visiting him (and vice versa). He’s a “man about town” which Sam never would be – Sam is more like Cat was…..prefers his solitude.
That is cool about MasterB being on the vet’s van! Even better that he has found a cat that actually knows how to play and plays with MasterB.
I know isn’t it great. I hope I eventually get some photos of the two of them together.
you should have a look on two cats from my neighbourhood, they have been fighting the whole days :p
