Meet my pets

 At last, a topic from Long and Short Reviews that's nice and easy. Let's face it, a pet owner can talk about their pets all day, and I am no exception. And I've got plenty of photos; it's just a matter of choosing the best ones.

In the beginning there was Tigger, an RSPCA rescue who loved his food and liked sitting in boxes.


After Tigger sadly passed away, we decided to get a bonded pair. The RSPCA wouldn't touch us as we didn't have a garden at the time, so we went to Cats Protection and found a brother and sister duo who suited us perfectly.

This is Spot.


"He's my big handsome boy," his foster owner told us, and we had to agree. He's friendly, adventurous (he likes to roam the neighbourhood) and very protective of his sister.

This is Dash.



"She's a miserable cow," was her foster owner's comment, and she had a point. No matter where you are or what you're doing, Dash will be sitting there silently judging you. Fortunately she's also adorable, as long as you don't do silly things like stroke her for too long, then she'll have your arm off.


We wouldn't be without them, and I think they'd agree, even if they mostly tolerate us.

I'm very much looking forward to meeting everyone else's pets!

  1. Dash looks very similar to a cat I use to have. The two are just almost twins (physically).

  2. They're so cute. I love tuxedos, even if they do silently judge very well.

    1. I was hoping for a pair of tuxedos when we were looking, although I love all cats.

  4. Poor Dash, she just has resting kitty face as a friend of mine puts it! They're all gorgeous. Sorry to hear about Tigger, he reminds me of my Sunny.

  5. I'm sorry about Tigger. Losing a pet is always hard. Your kitties are beautiful!

  6. I only included one pet this week, but I also have a cat who looks almost EXACTLY like Spot. I actually did a double take when I saw the photo because I thought it was my cat! Except for the little dab of white on his nose, they could be twins. Her name is Hera (a naming choice that she is unfortunately determined to live up to) and she is probably a little more like Dash in personality. Not quite as judgy, but definitely not a lap cat!

    1. Yes, Dash will never be a lap cat - too moody!

  7. I think Spot and Dash are very dashing indeed. They reminded me a bit of Tybalt, King of Cats from Seanan McGuire's October Daye series. I think McGuire too is a huge fan of cats, and it shows in her writing. :) P.S. Wonderful names too.
