๐Ÿ˜บ A Chartreux Smile ๐Ÿ˜บ

How often do you see a cat smiling at you? Well for most cat owners the answer is โ€˜Neverโ€™!

Maddison’s kitten 2020

But, if you adopt the Chartreux, you will come home to an adorable smiling face every day!

These cats have a broad and well-rounded head structure, with a round shape forehead. Their cheeks are full and they have powerful jaws with it.

Their doe eyes have a slight depression among them with a relatively straighter nose and have medium sized ears.

This unique structure of their head and face gave them an always mysteriously smiling facial appearance.

Yes, thatโ€™s the case, no matter your beautiful Chartreux is sad or furious with you they will always appear smiling.

You will just love seeing them smile all the time and will also help you feel positive in difficult times and handle those situations calmly.

Itโ€™s great to have a lovely companion who will always be there to cheer you up through their beautiful and adorable smile x

Why Does Your Cat Like to Knead with Its Paws?

There’s no sight more endearing than to see your cat stretch out her paws and begin “kneading” what’s in front of her. A cat kneads in much the same way a baker works soft dough, using a pushing motion with her front paws, alternating between left and right. They will often purr while doing this, and the whole experience is pleasant and relaxing.

Cats knead when they’re kittens to stimulate milk production in the mother cat. The action pushes the mother’s skin away from their mouth as it stimulates the milk flow.

Kneading behavior appears in adult cats for different reasons. Like us, cats will sometimes get nervous, scared, or worried. If they are in unfamiliar territory, such as a vet’s office, some cats may knead bedding to help them relax and calm them down. It is a repetitive action that reminds them of a time when they felt safe and comforted.

But kneading can also be a sign that your cat is happyโ€”especially when you have a plush new blanket on your lap and your cat is getting settled in for a nap. It’s probably as comforting for you as it is for them. Kneading will sometimes be accompanied by purring. The rhythmic motions from their purring and kneading create a sense of calm that may be followed by a peaceful sleep.

It’s also no surprise that the kneading motion stimulates a sense of comfort in human caretakers. Cats that stretch out their claws when they knead might cause a little bit of pain, but that is easily remedied if you place a blanket or towel over your lap. Light, gentle kneading feels like a massage and could lull us to sleep alongside our contented feline friends.

Week 3 – Day 21 – Growing!

The kittens are growing so quickly and are absolutely gorgeous. Thankfully the weather has finally cooled down, as we have had to have the fans on continuously.
If you didn’t know, kittens cannot control the temperature of their little bodies so they take on the temperature of their surroundings – too cold, safely warm or too hot. This is why it is critical to keep kittens safely warm at all times.

Operation Catio ‘Day 1’

It has begun…


Day 1 …

Operation Catio!

Tomorrow is an exciting day! Hopefully (I say hopefully as one builder let us down a few weeks ago) our paving will be laid for our outside safe area for the girls. If you didn’t know a catio is a cat enclosure or โ€œcat patioโ€ that provides feline safety and enrichment outdoors. It is a purrfect solution while you enjoy peace of mind knowing your cat is always safe, whether it is an indoor or outdoor cat.

Our catio will come off our small kitchen extension and the French doors will open out into the catio. We have gone big! It is approximately 9 meters in length x 3 meters wide x 2.4 meters high!…obviously the girls know nothing about it ๐Ÿ˜ผ but i am extremely excited for them โ˜บ

I will post pictures as it progress, but in the mean time, here are some beautiful photos/video of Pixel I took this morning while I was supervising her in the garden (won’t have to do that once the catio is installed ๐Ÿ˜Š)


Week 3 – Day 13 – Cutie Pies

Week 2 – Day 11 – Eye Eye ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘

Kittens open their eyes about seven to ten days after birth. At first, the retina is poorly developed and vision is poor. Kittens cannot see as well as adult cats until about ten weeks after birth. Kittens develop very quickly from about two weeks of age until their seventh week. All kittens are born with blue eyes which change at approx 7 weeks, at this age the adult eye colour will begin to emerge.
