The Ahhh Factor

Back in the day when we were a family at home and we had cats:

  1. What a sweet photo! I think, every once in a while, that I might like to have a kitty...and then I think about how crazy they can get, tearing up couches with their claws & stuff! Yikes!

    Oh. And then there was Wilson, who ate a piece of the bathroom wall!!

    Nevermind.

  2. Just stumbled into your blog! I love your photos, and you mention Coll. We had our last family holday on Coll before I left home. A beautiful place. A farmer there took me to a dance on the back of a tractor (the dance wasn't on the back of a tractor - I didn't put that very well...)

  3. What a great photo, GB. I concur...Ahhhhhh! As someone once said, you can't watch a sleeping cat and remain tense.

  4. I'd forgotten we had two cats at the same time. The other cat was certainly the only thing the black cat (whose name as I recall was "The Black Cat") ever cuddled. An adopted stray who'd obviously been ill-treated he left his mark on many a hand that went to stroke him - and the nose of my Uncle's poodle!

  5. Thanks all. I couldn't resist sharing it when I was looking through my scanned photos for something the other day.

    Frances: Welcome. We lived in the township of Coll on the Isle of Lewis not on the Island of Coll. Oddly, as much of our mail used to end up on the Isle, I've never visited it.

    CJ: These cats were in our house in Coll. I'd quite forgotten that we had cats that colour (at separate times as you'd thought) when we were young.
