This is my new cat home online! Right here, on the doorstep. I’m writing other things too, and Real Life has definitely got in the way, but I love cats too much to not write about them.
Today, for instance, a neighbour called round: his little tortoiseshell cat is very pregnant, and didn’t come home last night. He thinks she may have slunk off somewhere to have her kits in private, and I can understand his thinking. She’s so bouncy and inquisitive, I thought she was a male kitten!
Anyway, my shed is falling apart, and has lots of nooks and crannies for a pregnant little cat to hide, so we had a proper look in there. No joy yet, but I’m keeping an eye out.
In the meantime, I wanted to make a new banner for this new website, which used to be a basic level WordPress site. It’s still basic WordPress, of course, but at least I have hosting now. Hosting cats … I like it.
The banner here, by the way, is a detail from the statue of Dick Whittington and his cat outside the Guildhall Art Gallery in London. The Gallery’s closed, but the statue lives on.
I have quite a few posts to transfer onto here gradually, and I’ve also been doing a lot of poking about the country and the web, looking at cats. The results will be on here, pictures and designs and research, all of it.
In a couple of days, I’ll post some photos I took last week, in Cley Next The Sea – cats galore, of all sorts. I loved it, I hope you do too.
