Back in June, I wrote a blog post called “My Cats, My Boys, My Constants“. As I’m sure you may have realised by now, I’m a crazy cat lady. I adore my two furry little boys and their faces make my heart do a happy dance. I actually received some abuse from a lady on Twitter once because I love my cats, but to be honest, it just made me feel a bit sorry for her – the love and loyalty that can be gained from a pet is truly something special, and she was obviously missing out.
However, as a result of that blog post, the lovely people at PetsPyjamas (who also helped me on my MoneySupermarket Retail Royalty Challenge) sent me a message saying the blog post had won a chance to be featured in their Summer Edit which is available both online and in hard format too.
Obviously I was thrilled – my blog post had been written totally from the heart but PetsPyjamas had loved it and given me this opportunity to show off my gorgeous boys. Exciting! I spoke to their PR department who asked me to send them a photo of me and the cats together. Simple! Well, at least that’s what I thought…
First of all, I had to wait for a day where I was home during daylight hours and my mum was there too in order to take the pictures (I haven’t yet evolved a third arm to hold a camera whilst cuddling two cats!) The perfect day came and we got ourselves ready to take some snaps. However, as the saying goes:
Devon was in a terrible mood. And when I say ‘terrible’, I mean TERRIBLE. He gets into bad moods sometimes for no apparent reason and this was one of those days. Wilf was pretty laid back and let us snap away taking different shots, but no matter what I did, Devon just wouldn’t cheer up!
As a result of this, the final photo featured in the magazine isn’t very flattering of me, but it was the best we could do bearing in mind the conditions. However, looking back through the photos, Devon’s grumpy face made me laugh so much I just HAD to share it with you!
I’m very lucky with my cats, they are so loving and gentle and I have never once been scratched or bitten by them (which so many cat owners tell me is a rare thing!) So, I don’t mind when he’s a little bit grouchy, in fact, I just find it really cute – got to love a bit of character!
