The jemjabella household is a bit of a zoo, covering several different species: from pedigree cats to exotic spiders. While a hundred (exaggeration) pets might not be everyone's idea of fun, and there's no shortage of cleaning duties to be had, there's always something furry looking for a cuddle and a fuss.

Furry Friday: Cuddles

How better to bring myself back into regular blogging than with pictures of the furry boys? Apologies for the quality, these are taken in shit light (again): And if you like Furry Fridays, you may be interested in my next project. I’ll not be starting it for a couple of months though, so you can… read more →

Furry Friday: Big Soppy Fudge

Fudge is having a bit of a ‘soft’ day. He spent a large part of today rubbing himself up against me, the floor, the door and the walls. I pointed at him earlier today, and he came over and stood up to my finger, ‘grabbed’ it with his front paws and rubbed himself against it.… read more →

Furry Friday: Guest Furries

This week’s Furry Friday post is brought to you courtesy of my Mummy. These two fine specimens are her boys; both Siamese; Merlin is the silver seal tabby point, Billi the chocolate point. (I’m sure if I’ve got those wrong she’ll correct me in a comment… *hint hint*) Sure, they were expensive, but they’re not… read more →

Furry Friday: Wet n Wild

I was at work today, so haven’t had chance to take any pictures of the boys, so figured I’d post this old favourite instead; back when Karl and I lived at the flat, Hex loved the bathroom sink. The odd thing is, he doesn’t really pay any attention to any of the sinks here at… read more →

Furry Friday: Innocent

I wanted to give you all piggie pics today, but they’ve not sat still for long enough and the light has been terrible, resulting in absolutely zero usable pictures. Anyway, settle for catties… (well, one catty): Fudge has such an innocent face, until you catch him stealing your chicken out from under the grill (for… read more →
