Those of you with pets/cats will understand this post completely.
Those of you without will think I'm well on my way to becoming the craziest cat lady.
And you might be right.
There's no way of writing this without sounding a bit mental so I'm just gunna tell you outright.
I painted my cats on my nails.
I saw something similar on Pinterest and pinned it to my Nail Inspiration Board then went about stalking my cats to get good enough photographs of them to work from.
Anyway, here they are.
This is Tiff. She is our eldest at approximately 3/4 years old. She is also Ruby's Mummy.
We are not sure how old she is exactly because we rescued her when some nasty old neighbors moved out and left her, also she is a small cat so her age is just a guess on what the vet has been able to tell us. She is gorgeous and very much a Daddy's girl. She will tolerate sitting on my lap if MrGT is unavailable but she will turn her back to me and not enjoy it one bit!
This is Suzie who will be two on Halloween. We got her as a kitten when someone we know discovered her male cats were in fact not male. And both pregnant. We only agreed to have one kitten as some company for Tiff but ended up taking Suzie and her sister who we named Roxie home with us. They were inseparable and MrGT couldn't bare to part them. He denies this now, but I remember clearly him saying to me 'But look, they go everywhere together, we can't take just one'. Unfortunately Roxie was run over about a year and a half a go the morning we went on holiday. We had just moved and hadn't let the cats out yet as Tiff was an indoor cat (by her own choosing) and the kittens weren't quite old enough yet. But they all managed to get out through the kitchen window one night. Tiff and Suzie stayed in the garden but Roxie went for a wander. We were devastated, she was my baby :-(.
This is Ruby the baby. She has just turned one. The night the cats escaped and Roxie was run down, Tiff was 'caught' by a boy cat. About 9 weeks later she went into labour, gave birth to one tiny stillborn kitten then the labour stopped. We were very worried about her and called the vet (late at night) who told us we could be in for an all nighter but if she hadn't shown any more signs of labour by morning to bring her in. I barely slept that night, spent most of the time with my hand on her belly trying to feel the other kittens moving, which they were! As soon as we could the next morning we called the vet who told us to bring her in, she was examined and they heard a kitten heartbeat so decided to do a kitty C section on her. We waited hours to hear anything then finally they called to say she had 3 kittens, Tiffy was fine but two of the kittens were very tiny and weak and things weren't looking good for them. they called extra staff in to keep rubbing them and feeding them as Tiffy had no milk come in for them and by the evening we were allowed to take them home! We had to feed the kittens by hand every two hours until Tiffy was able to feed them herself which was only a few days. Ruby was the smallest kitten who they thought we would lose, but now she is a Mummy's girl and a fidget bum in bed!
Ruby having a 3am feed the day she was born. They are MrGT's hairy arms not mine!
So there you go, my cats, on my nails.
Any other crazy cat ladies out there? Or crazy pet owners in general?
I'm a sucker for any animal really!
