Four More

It's been a little while since the last posted batch of mogs, but this doesn't mean there haven't been any...

Streetmog number: 329
Streetmog name:
Actual name: Lara
Location: Front yard
Preferred stroke: Chin tickle
Character: Nosey
Other: Lara's tag told me her name. She was a sweet thing, trotting out from her enclosed terraced garden to come and say hello. I was more interested in her long haired sibling, but she was evasive. Maybe next time.

Streetmog number: 330
Streetmog name: Deep Space
Actual name:
Location: Door mat
Preferred stroke: Head rub
Character: Fed up
Other: Deep Space was friendly enough but he had ulterior motives, specifically to be let in. He had a face of thunder when he realised I could not carry out his request, which brought a smile to my face. What a look!

Are you kidding me?

Streetmog number: 331
Streetmog name: Belvedere
Actual name:
Location: Walkway
Preferred stroke: Anything
Character: Strumpet
Other: Belvedere was a beautiful, smooth & stocky specimen, who was also without tail. He was outrageously affectionate and followed me along to the next flat for some more fussing. He also had a most delightful purr and miaow. Lovely to meet you, sir. although I think you are probably a lady...

Streetmog number: 332
Streetmog name: Loquat C
Actual name:
Location: Pavement
Preferred stroke: Under ear scrunch
Character: Cool customer
Other: The handsome Loquat C was sat majestically au plein pavement and, although he seemed a bit nervous when I approached, he held his ground and allowed me to lay on some chin-rub love. Once assured that I posed no threat, he flopped himself down for a rest.

p.s. Having stripped this blog back to basics (no ads, no links etc.), regular followers might have noticed that @streetmogs on twitter no longer exists, nor does the Streetmogs Fakebook page. It was all a bit much - and a bit unnecessary. I only used twitter to get the blog out there and draw attention to new posts; in all honesty, I thoroughly dislike it and all of its self-promoting, self-validating narcissism, as well as it being a vehicle for many people to simply vent and moan. It seems to bring out the worst in us and it's something I can happily live without. The blog lives on, however.
