Almost every day our cats do something that make us congratulate ourselves on winning the kitten lottery. They are amazing. Really really they are. But we’ve fostered that as much as anything. We manhandled them incessently as soon as we could get our grubby mits on them. The result? Kittens that have absolute trust in us.

How many cats do you know that you can grab, flip upside down, give them a raspberry on their tummies, over and over and over and they never have a problem with it. In fact, they just lie there, waiting for you to be done. And it’s not just Finchy, who seems to have a predeliction for being upside down. Robin, the alpha cat, doesn’t mind it at all either.

I’ll be posting more on this subject later (we have lots of evidence), but here are some photos. And if you’re wondering how we did the halloween card – upside down photos, taken from above…

Finchy doing the air stretch. You can hold him like this for minutes. We’ve counted.


At the last second, something got Robin’s attention. He’s a bit more active and less willing to relax and float than Finchy is.

    Yea!! You’re back! So sweet the boys get a different view and all they have to do is relax.

  2. Oh you should have posted the film of him doing the flying shrimp cat!! Wish Elizabeth would do that stuff without making a man-eating bracelet out of herself.

    I will post it. Soon. Is anyone else interested in seeing a cat being thrown in the air and wtching him turn into a shrimp (think curled up cooked variety, whilst catching his tail).

    Actually, I want to retake it so that John isn’t in it – it would like funnier with a blank wall and a curled up kitten thrown into the frame, over and over.
