Happy Birthday Bambino

Cleo was one year old a couple of weeks ago. She is so gorgeous and always up to mischief. Her favourite game is peek a boo which she plays at every opportunity, behind a bush, a duvet, a chair or a paper bag. Those keen eyes miss nothing, especially when Paul is eating charcuterie.

I could not miss out our gorgeous Angel, who is five this year.
She loves attention especially from Chris and Virginie from the 8 á Huit Supermarket next to our home. Such a diva, quite a few of the tourists visiting Daglan will stop to take her photograph, she will sit and pose for them and lap up the praise they give her.

This bag is so mine.

How cute is this? The look that could melt hearts will always gets my attention, “treat time Cleo”.



Cleo loves Pixar!

Our ten week old kitten whom we have named Cleo loves the Pixar “Birds on a Wire” animation, she taps the screen and follows the birds from left to right, when the short film is finished she will look behind the screen to see if the birds are hiding.

In the past we have adopted stray or unwanted cats but we have never had a young kitten before. Everything is new and exciting for her, she thrives on exploration, she plays hard and sleeps often.

Cleo the catI am wide awake now, get ready, it is play time again.


We thought of adopting another cat as companion for Angel because she was grieving the great loss of Phoebe who died in the Spring of this year. Angel would call for her most nights and look for her around the house at feeding time. So when the chance to adopt Cleo came there was no hesitation.

For the first couple of weeks Angel hissed at Cleo whenever she saw her but gradually Angel has mellowed and they have started to play together, they now rush about playing tag and kiss each other on the nose.

We have plenty of cat toys to play with but who needs toys when she can play for hours with an empty cardboard kitchen roll, or a pair of slippers.

Angel has stopped shouting in the night and when food is ready she now looks for Cleo, wonderful.
