Pussy Galore!

Since my last post was about our youngest cat I thought it was only fair that my next should be about our oldest – the original.

Her name is Bingo and she is almost 7. She is also a tortoise-shell cat. What can I say, I like ugly cats. It’s like when a cat has kittens, it has a black one, a white one and a ginger one and then there’s not enough colour left to make a full one so they have to throw it all together to produce a tortoise-shell. But I think they are the cutest.

We have had Bingo since she was a kitten…..

…she got her name because apparently I had an obsession with playing online bingo at the time.

Originally she was a house cat as we lived in a flat when she was growing up. Ah, times were tough, she didn’t even have any shoes but she was happy. There are so many photos and videos of her it’s hard to decide what to share on this first (oh yes, there will be more) post about her. She started off so little and has now gotten so big. Sooo big that Greg calls her “princess monster truck”!

When we moved to a house with a garden last year she was, at first, unsure about the big bad world but now she loves being outside. She won’t venture further than the garden……

..mainly because she’s too fat to jump over the fence! We did buy her a little cat house that sits on the patio….

…that she can sleep in if she wants. Although seeing her fat ass trying to get inside I don’t think she goes in very often due to the fear of getting stuck. She spent her early years flat bound, she no wanna be cat house bound now. Also, whoever said cats don’t shit in their own back garden – lied!

Does she get on with our other cat Disco? No, not really….Bingo tolerates Disco…

…but I’m sure Disco will settle down and they will develop a mutual understanding…..I hope so anyway.

Bingo is intelligent and I have even managed to teach her tricks. So, that’s where I will end this intro to Bingo or Bingle as I sometimes call her….doing a trick (for treats, obviously).

P.S. To demonstrate no favouritism, Disco is also intelligent and good at tricks….
