Like buses

You wait for ages and then loads come along at once. It's been almost a week since the last blog but this isn't due to post retardation - there simply have not been any street mog appearances...until today. The coldest day of autumn so far, but the sun was peeking out from behind the clouds and the cats were out on the abundant prowl. Six more on the scoresheet then:

Streetmogs name: Jack Black
Actual name:
Favourite Location: Patio
Preferred stroke: Chin tickle
Character: Twitchy
Other: Jack was a handsome mog and was keen to be petted, although not without some trepidation. Once he accepted the friendly offer of a stroke, he was a real purrer.

Streetmogs name: Liquorice
Actual name:
Favourite Location: Flower pots
Preferred stroke: Nose scratch
Character: Shy but friendly
Other: Initially very wary, but soon made friends and after a little greeting he decided he wanted in, assumed the doorstep position and proceeded to miaow forlornly. Sorry Liquorice, I can't let you in!


Streetmogs name: Jade
Actual name:
Favourite Location: Patio & side alley
Preferred stroke: n/a
Character: Independent spirit
Other: What a Siamese sight to behold. A real surprise, those blue eyes. He appeared from nowhere & I only managed to fire off one shot, so taken was I with this beauty. Despite my attempts at friendship, he didn't hang around for long and scuttled off to explore a side alley. I hope to meet this one again.


Streetmogs name: Slash
Actual name:
Favourite Location: Patio
Preferred stroke: n/a
Character: Playful scaredy
Other: Slash was hilarious, stalking me from behind the undergrowth before he decided to reveal himself. I beckoned him closer by twirling a twig, and he was soon ready to pounce & play...


Streetmogs name: Ginger Kitty
Actual name:
Favourite Location: Crimson couch
Preferred stroke: n/a
Character: Heart-breaker
Other: Words can't do this one justice. The first street mog kitten! A true delight to spot this caramel coloured fluff-ball. He seemed very content to be sat safely indoors. Bless his toffee socks.

Streetmogs name: Napkin
Actual name:
Favourite Location: Pavement
Preferred stroke: Tummy rub (if he lets you get close)
Character: Tease
Other: Napkin confused me. I was positive that this was the same mog (Liquorice) that I'd met earlier and the locations were very close to each other. However, the face is slightly different so this was most definitely the sixth street mog of the day, and what a special chap he was. After some initial reluctance, he gained confidence and showed his true colours; on approaching him with the intention of administering tummy tickles, he liked to up and run and collapse futher down the street. Cheeky puss.
