Grow Your Blog - Pepsi Max Addict

2 Bags Full
I'm joining in with the Grow your Blog meet and greet event at 2 Bags Full. A warm welcome everyone who pops by and I am looking forward to visiting as many of the 500 bloggers taking part in this event as possible.

I have two blogs; this is my cat blog and other one called Gone Beading is where I record my craft adventures, ramblings and thoughts. When I was creating the cat blog back in 2009 I was struggling to think of a title, saw my glass of the Pepsi beside me, and thought 'that'll do'. Very unoriginal way to create a title but there we go!

We live in Scotland and I wanted to record how the humans and resident house princess cat adapted to having Red, a tiny ball of the softest ginger and white fluff, enter our lives, and to see if I could actually set up and maintain a blog

Magic was 6yrs old when the demon boy below arrived much to her disgust
 Red, a few weeks after he arrived, he's sitting on note cube which shows you how tiny he still is.
Magic, a very regal lady is continually affronted by Red's playfulness and disrespectful behaviour so always tries to sit as far away from him as possible
 Red grew up tall and gorgeous with a fluffy chest wig just crying out for a big gold medallion and enormous big soft paws that he allows his loved ones to massage
 He also does a very cute line in sleepy poses which I love taking full advantage of
I found I enjoyed blogging so I kept quietly recording their lives and some of my own thoughts. In 2013 I was contacted by two fabulous cat bloggers, Hannah and Lucy's Mum and Jacqueline, and they introduced me to the Cat Blogosphere which opened up a whole new world of lovely bloggers.

Blogging is such a sociable and fun activity and it is a privilege to engage with fellow bloggers across the world who share their own lives, stories, knowledge and skills. It is lovely to read their posts and a delight when they leave comments on my own.

My ultra gorgeous new header was designed by the wonderful Ann at Zoolatry and I could not be more delighted with it.  I have only ever had basic ones that came as part of the blogger template and I feel very swish and sophisticated wearing my best new image for this event. What is especially lovely is that she has really captured the essence of both cats.

Thank you for visiting and please feel free to leave me a comment if you would like to let me know you've been.

  4. I clicked on your blog because of the title Pepsi Max is my favorite drink. But then I discovered all your wonderful cats. We have quite a few here. I have included them in my regular blog from time to time but haven't thought about a blog just about them. Come visit me at Conversations from my House.

  6. I have never been without a cat in my life so I understand your attachment and love your clever header. My cats share their home with a dog named Izzi who often posts her own idea's of what life is like as a dog ... and the horrors of living with MOM (me). I would enjoy keeping in contact with your blog and hope you will come peruse my blog. I think we have things we could share and enjoy.

  16. Give the darlings a hug for me. Visiting via Vicki's GYBP and enjoyed your post. What's the weather like now? Here it's snow, snow, snow followed by Extremely low temps and wind. A perfect day for sitting close to the wood stove although cabin fever is setting in.

  18. Hello from New Brunswick, Canada, where I enjoy the company of my two kitties, Kramer and Lucy (along with assorted humans). At our house it is the male who lays down the law and the good-natured female who aims to please. I guess the "first cat of the house" rules the roost LOL.

  21. Delightful kitties! Red is such a handsome boy, What a lovely idea to make a squishy cushion for Magic. One of my previous cats, Sneetch, had terrible arthritis, poor love, and I had a heat pad for her for the winter months. Tibby is quite young, so no arthritis thankfully. I made a couple of quilted mats for her, which she generally discards in favour of a "real" quilt. LOL
