Three more moggles today, each one spotted last Saturday whilst out plodding some new streets in SW20, otherwise known as West Wimbledon. New streets tend to mean new streetmogs, which is always a good thing...

Streetmog number: 211
Streetmog name: Arabella
Actual name:
Favourite Location: Pavement
Preferred stroke: Tummy tickle
Character: Tortie tease
Other: As the photo shows, I spotted this wondrous softie from way down the street. I always grab an early shot in case the mog gets spooked, but this one just lay there without a care in the world, even when I'd walked right up to her. I wouldn't say she was a true exhibitionist, but she was happy to stay put and let me execute some furry fussing. Of course, one tummy tickle was enjoyed, another was tolerated, but the third was met with the classic grab & bite combo.

Once - yes please, twice - take it easy, three times - you die

Streetmog number: 212
Streetmog name: Quintin
Actual name:
Favourite Location: Window sill
Preferred stroke:
Character: Indifferent
Other: It's been a while since I've posted an inside mog but this handsome tabby was hard to resist. He just sat there and stared at me with disinterest and no little disdain.

Streetmog number: 213
Streetmog name: Eevee
Actual name:
Favourite Location: Car roof
Preferred stroke: Behind ear rub
Character: Confident
Other: Eevee was loving his car roof. It's funny how cats tend to sit under cars or lay on the top, yet hate to be inside. This cutie was more than happy to get up and come over to say hello. He enjoyed some strokes and then settled back down to people watch. Things got slightly more exciting when a dog appeared, but Eevee stayed put and stared from the safe distance of his warm metallic base.

I was struggling for names this evening and my son suggested that I name him after a Pokemon cat, which I did, although I have to admit there's not much of a resemblance, lolzapussalooza!


  1. Arabella is such a beautiful girl. Eevee is more handsome than any Pokemon, and Quinton is a gem :)
