The Cats!

Mr Corky.

by on Sep.16, 2011, under In Memory of..., The Cats!

It has taken a while to actually write this…..Corky was such a huge character that every-time I tried I ended up a little tearful.

Corky arrived as a small kitten just before Christmas a few years ago….along with his brother Ceylon….and of course Mr Darcy.  Corky lead the gang of three straight away….taking on our Labradoodle, Tikka…..and when he was bored with her, he went on to terrorise the neighbours dogs, chickens, ducks….even children!!!!!

He was naughty, cocky, arrogant…..BUT he was the most loving, affectionate furry…..if he spotted you his tail would shoot straight up with the top just kinked over….ready for that head-butt and huge purr…..he would often be find head on pillow snuggled up with my daughter Alethea…fast alseep…..or just sprawled out next to her while she watched TV or played.

Those of you who followed “TheBruvs” on twitter will appreciate the fun that the boys had…..in real life this is exactly how Corky lived…..ALWAYS up for the next adventure. Playing up at the church, in fields of sheep, running in front of cars, stranded up trees laughing at a big German shepherd. He was a true wanderer, sometimes gone for days – BUT he always returned to his home, his food bowl and his cuddles……..his nine lives he used and when they ran out he just grinned and carried on….that was corky.

A few weeks ago we got that dreaded message that a  cat similar to our Corky had been knocked over…..sadly we brought him home for the last time.

I would like to think that he is now having an absolute ball up at Rainbow Bridge….I’m sure he is. He leaves behind a huge hole especially in the life of my daughter Alethea………

Raising a glass to you Mr Corky…..

Caught out !!!!!!

by on Sep.21, 2009, under The Cats!

OK before I start can I just say…..it was the warmth that lead me up onto the roof, then I thought I’d check the state of the slate while I was up there!!!….Oh….and then I accidentally lay just where the birds were nesting!!!

As you are probably aware…..I am the brains behind TheBruvs……my brother Mr Ceylon is the muscle!!

On Saturday morning…..quite early(!!)  my mum peep answered the phone…..it was the lady from across the road informing her that I was on the roof……that reminds me I must go and dump the contents of my bowels upon her very neat lawn….and torment her very big German Shepard dog for grassin on me!!!!!!!! anyway…..out comes my mum…with camera.

Now everyone thought I was up there after the birds……but I get enough birds on Twitter…..hey I only have to click my fingers and Medusaj does a very good dance for us…..and not to mention our sexy gal across the seas….. grrlysquirrel and  then if we are really desperate we can always go for the golden oldies Stephanosis & Cathysmum….(only jokin ladies –  LURV ya really)

well who would have thought a cat on a slate roof would cause such a commotion???  I appreciate we live in a small village…..and some of the peeps here find it “news”  but hey I’m just a cat……. my mum called me down, saying that if I didn’t come down and stop drawing attention then she would call Mark…..now I have heard of “Mark” his real name is “Vet” I aint stupid……I was off that chimney and roof before you could say “castration”

My House...My Chimney!!!

My House...My Chimney!!!

Can you see me???

Can you see me???

Damn!!  better get down then...

Damn!! better get down then...

Hey!! my roof...

Hey!! my roof...

Busted!!  errrrr.... hi ya mum!

Busted!! errrrr.... hi ya mum!

For those of you concerned….no birds were hurt during the “roof incident”…..just my pride, however I will have my revenge on the informative across the road….. My brother and I had a vindaloo last night….washed down with several barrels of lager….and topped off with a couple of dodgy kebabs!!!!…….. I feel a “dump & run” coming on!!!!!!…….    ;o)
Have fun……be safe…..be happy……

Mr Keith Chegwin

by on Sep.15, 2009, under The Cats!

OK so we are sitting on our laptop…..throwing abuse at our beautiful friend @stephanosis, many of you Twitter users will know Ms Stephy she has a tongue that could cut concrete, a mind as sharp as a Global knife, a quick sense of humour as good as any stand up comedian ….and a heart that is as warm & glorious like the summer sun……that you just want to bask under…. ;O)

 

anyway back to our story….there we were….throwing our usual abuse about, sharing the odd laugh or two…..when Ceylon noticed our followers had  increased…..intrigued we hit the followers button….would it be “get instant clean teeth” or “Britney with her huge sausage”……

NOPE…… only bloody Keith Chegwin!!!!! ….last week Wayne Rooney…..this week Cheggars plays POP!!!!!! Now we didn’t know a lot about this guy (hey we are only 10 months old!!!!) so we checked his website out http://www.keithchegwin.com and much respect was to be had for the lad…..hard working, great sense of humour and an honesty that is to be admired!!!!!

 

So we invited him up to our village…….. we decked out the local village hall with a few xmas lights…..make him feel a bit super-starry….. got a few of our friends round and boy did we party…… music blasting…… out of respect for our man we had a night of soft drinks…… Mr C arrived in his private Jump Jet Harrier….which impressed the ladies…… A top magazine turned up following a tip off from the local press……..Cheggars  and us had a great time the guy showed us some ace tips on pulling the birds, getting a six-pack (no – not from the local shop fridge!!!) this boy rocks!!!!!

 

unfortunately……

 

In our small village last weekend one of the local gals was having her hen-night….. now they grow up….small village…no one can cause any trouble cause everyone knows ya mam & dad!!! so when they reach an age where they can get married they really let rip…… the hen-nights are legendary……we often gate-crash them!!!!!!! So late into our party with Cheggars we decided in our wisdom to gatecrash the hen-night….

We must take this opportunity to apologise profusely to Mr Chegwin…… and the old lady who fell into the river, and the local Indian restaurant, and the sheep in the field adjoining the pub ( we appreciate what was done was wrong but high spirits and all that!!!!) also apologies to the local bobby…..we will come and re-spray your car!!!!

 

Mr Ceylon - Cheggars & The Hen Night!!

Mr Ceylon - Cheggars & The Hen Night!!

finally Thank you to Mr Cheggars ……..we will send the rest of your clothes when they have dried out….. have fun….lots of respect….and any time you are by our Village call in…..you can apologise to the vicar!!!!!!!!

 

laters peeps…… don’t let the bed bugs bite ya too hard….. or anyone else ya share ya bed with!!!!!!!    *SNOG* 

 

Mr Corky (& Mr Ceylon)

Catnip !!!!

by on Sep.08, 2009, under The Cats!

Today my mummy peep came home with a box of “catnip” now I have never tried catnip in this form before……I have had “catnip toys” that just drive me loopy……So when she whistled us all in this morning three out of five of us came running…..

me checking out the instructions!!

me checking out the instructions!!

 

In the usual pecking order….I was front of the queue…..I am after all the “favoured” cat!!! I was given this box…..after reading the instructions and having a good smell……I started to get a little excited…..and as when I get excited I started to let everyone know……loudly!!!! Unfortunately my crying alerted Ms Botsi……who still likes to think she is “top cat” (even though Mr Ceylon is much bigger & stronger) Now Ms Botsi has one thing that sets her apart from any other cat who lives here……she is ace at giving us young whippersnappers a quick “cuff” round the ear!!!……. When I wouldn’t let her see the box…..this is exactly what I got!!!!!

Three cats...one box!!!

Three cats...one box!!!

 

Ms Botsi & her "left-hook"

Ms Botsi & her "left-hook"

 

Having received the “left-hook” from Ms Botsi……Mr Ceylon and I quickly retreated…..with much respect….to a safe distance…..so that Ms Botsi could see what Mummy peep had got for us in that lovely red box….

She hugged it!!!

She hugged it!!!

 

She sang to it!!!

She sang to it!!!

 

She read the instructions!!!

She read the instructions!!!

 

and hugged it some more.....

and hugged it some more.....

 

Now Mr Ceylon and I were really wanting to know what exactly was in this treasured red box…..but would you take it off her??

Mummy peep came to the rescue….Ms Botsi handed over the treasured red box…..and I held my breath as she opened it….three little piles were put down on the floor…..Ms Botsi immediately started eating, licking, rolling, kicking her feet about like a kitten!!!! Mr Ceylon gulped all his and had to be given “seconds” ……I took my first sniff……….

 

…………WOW!!!!!  it was soooooooooo good I just didn’t know whether to eat it….lick it…..roll in it…..so I did all three!!!!!!!!! MAN…..It’s good stuff!!!!!!!!!

The end result……. Mr Ceylon….

Mr Ceylon....after two lots of catnip!!!

Mr Ceylon....after two lots of catnip!!!

 

and Ms Botsi….

Ms Botsi zonked on Catnip!!

Ms Botsi zonked on Catnip!!

 

and finally…..please let this be a warning to all you catnip lovers out there….. DRUGS CAN DO HARM!!!! 

 

Look what happened to me…………

 

not one of my best!!!!

not one of my best!!!!

 

Have fun you all…………lots of love Mr Darcy…..*X*

Light a candle for Ms Botsi…

by on Jul.28, 2009, under The Cats!

It seems my elderly feline lady who lives with me….Ms Botsi has a very large tumour in her Tummy…she is undergoing treatment at the moment.

Our Ms Botsi

Our Ms Botsi

She  has also started suffering from epilepsy…and has so far had two attacks.

Ms Botsi is 11 years old and has had a wonderful life…she has lived with my peeps since she was 8 weeks old along with her sister Peshwarli (who used to live with us) now lives only round the corner, in a very peaceful house (no kids or kittens!!!) Ms Botsi is a true Tortie….likes lots of cuddles and is a law onto herself. She hates all white coloured cats (including my dear scampy Brothers!!) however I just about scrap through…and do receive the occasional headbutt or kiss from her

Botsi’s favourite poem…

The Lord looked down upon His world, created fresh and new,
With soaring, shining mountain tops and gleaming seas of blue.
The lordly lions roaming free with tigers golden bright,
All very grand, magnificent, but somehow, not quite right.
He stroked His beard and mused awhile and thought of this and that,
‘All these are far too big,’ he said, ‘I’ll make a smaller cat;
To edge towards the fire at night, out of the chilly wind,
An independent animal, but needing human kind;
With fur so soft and warm to touch, but brimming full of guile,
With pansy-faced wee kittens to make the children smile.’
All that was very long ago, but still the cat’s with us,
Aloof and condescending, but loving all the fuss.
You’ll never, ever own a cat, as all cat lovers know,
She’ll curl herself around your heart and never let you go….

 

So please if you have a spare five minutes….send our Ms Botswarli your love and light a candle for her tonight……

 

Our Brave Botsi....

Our Brave Botsi....

 

Thank you all for taking the time to read this…….love and best wishes Mr D….*X*

Hey check this out!

by on Jul.28, 2009, under The Cats!

So we got our own Blog!!

Guess for those of ya who don’t know us…..we are Mr Corky and Mr Ceylon…..and Mr Darcy is our Brother (although not blood related!!) we were rescued one week before Christmas from the rather rough house where we were living….. we were very scared and shy and needed lots of cuddles (and food) to make us into the fine specimens that we are now!!!!

Good lookin guys....aint we?

Good lookin guys....aint we?

 

We live with our human mum and dad…their five brats and three other cats….Mr Darcy…

Wimpy Mr D!!

Wimpy Mr D!!

Mr Darcy thinks he is the “Philip Schofield” of the feline world….emmmm we think not ! why Mr D is far betta lookin!!!

Then there is Mr Dansak (called Danny or Dan for short)

Mr Dan gettin a bite from Mr Corky!!

Mr Dan gettin a bite from Mr Corky!!

Mr Dan is a pleasant chap….he does not drink lager or mix with the girlies!!….he is “nice” to everyone….even Mr D!!! he even respects the human mum & dad!!!

Then there is Ms.Botsi (Botswarli is her proper name) She is very poorly at the moment and has something called Cancer in her tummy…she has to go to the Vets to have injections…..which kinda makes her tired and a little bit crabby….but then she has always bin crabby (well to us!!!)

Ms Botsi...

Ms Botsi...

Oh and then there are the goldfish!!!…..these little suckers drive the stupid Mr D round the bend!! they swim round just opening their mouths and not doin anything……what is the point of feedin em? or even having em?  Why do humans have fish? they reckon they like watchin em…..but we think it’s bloody hypocritical they have fish swimmin round in the lounge and then sit at the table and devour the fishes cousins….with a fresh salad…..it just aint right!!!!!

errr...the fish!!!

errr...the fish!!!

 So that’s our family!!

and we just kinda blend in….we have bin known to be a little naughty…we love teasin Mr Danny, and chasin Mr D….but our fav game is to see who can get the most blood from one of the humans!!! at the moment my Bruv Mr Ceylon is winnin….he has the biggest, sharpest claws….and he don’t mind using em (BTW he is the biggest, and has lots of muscle….but I have more brain cells!!!)

There are two ways we achieve this….

1. we sit and wait….behind a corner, a sofa, a door then pounce!!!!

2. or our fav…..sit on the kitchen chairs wait for someone to walk past….and BANG!!! claws out and got ya!! The little humans are the best….they scream real loud!!!

We also love knocking stuff on the floor…..we aint allowed on the sides…..so we reckon….if we can’t then why should other stuff be allowed….so when humans aint lookin….up we jump and we paw everything onto the floor…..keys, purses, phones…..if we can move it…..then it goes!!!!

Ya can follow us on Twitter now 

 

@TheBruvs

 

Although be warned….we like to say it how it is…..and don’t hold back!! but then we like it to be thrown at us….so give us ya best shot!!

Kidnapping???

by on Jul.27, 2009, under The Cats!

Well it has taken nearly a week to sort the mess out…..

I booked my first holiday (from eBay…a last minute bargain…which unfortunately offered me no time in which to either check out the campsite or tell my friends I was going) So it was a very excited Mr Darcy who left on a train on his Hols

my view out of the train window!!!

my view out of the train window!!!

 

Well I had a three day “holiday” (although I will not be going there again) away….only to return to find that my lovely brothers…Mr Corky and Mr Ceylon had not passed on the message that I had gone on Holiday AND they had taken over my twitter account and Blog site!!!

They had dressed up as me…the cheek of it!!

Mr Ceylon parading as me!!!!!!

Mr Ceylon parading as me!!!!!!

and even convinced my dear mummy peep and Daddy peep !!

I have still not responded to the best wishes of my lovely followers…..and would like to take this opportunity to thank some very special people……….

Stephanosis (Marjorie) and her lovely sweet dog Jessie, who I am to believe put up a brave fight for my return, my brothers can be a little rough in their talk and she has endured the bulk of it. So to my sweet Marjorie and Jessie thank you (I am glad you have met some wonderful new people through this!!)  ;o)

Llubyloo & her brave camel Llubyloo2 AKA AndyPandy (I missed her cream while I was away)….but she fought alongside Stephanosis like a true fighter…bringing her camels in (I know for a fact that my brothers only just held off the attack!!) was a brilliant tactic, with the onslaught of various people my brothers struggled to keep up with the battle….and their paws were sore from typing!!!

Also mentions for Lookski, HiToYou and Ahh_Shazbot & Twinkle47 who together came up with ideas of “rusty knives” and strange cookbooks (of which I’d rather not go into!!)

Messages of support from Lindseythefirst, Hilsofhove, AmMarvellous (who was a mean talking lady, and had my brothers buckling slightly), Lady_Twitster, Sarahgb (put up some excellent tactics) Justine_Hughes (who really should not be battling in her condition!)

Then I really must mention the people who stood by my brothers…..they are after all just kittens (9 months old!!!) Valberg1 who I am lead to believe Mr Ceylon has fallen for and  bdgrlaw who they both adore (but esp Mr Corky!!) also bcngr, Stefhoare & Moggymac who loves the brother’s Humour!! and a big thank you for Medusaj for sitting on the fence (in typical cat fashion) and siding with both sides!!!

 

Thank you for all the fun…..I hope all involved gained a few laughs and some extra nice followers…*X*   Mr D

 

 

PS if I have not mentioned you please drop me a message….my head is like a sieve…sometimes needs a little shake!!!

I’m back from my hols….

by on Jul.27, 2009, under The Cats!

Good morning all….I am back!!!

I have just returned from the old Butlins site at  Pwllheli….. now called  hafan-y-mor… and I am never going back!!!

I might just be a moggie….but my standards are high.

This is what the brochure promised….

            ”Imagine a typically active day on the Park. Every family is different, but it could include coffee and scrambled eggs in the Café Bar. A Wake & Shake family session. An energetic hour at the pool and SplashZone. Time for the Kids’ Club, before picking up cool bag supplies from the shop and hitting the beach. Back in time for a fun family show, a mad, mad round of Adventure Golf, a quick shower, dinner at the Lakeside Inn, disco then relax – it’s showtime! And we haven’t even mentioned exploring off the Park.”

  Yes every family is different…..most of the families there has VERY loud mouths, lots of gold jewellery, fags hanging out of their mouths and had about ten or so snotty little brats running round!!!

The coffee and scrambled eggs in the Cafe Bar….emmmmm more like the coffee appeared to be served with milk that had gone scrambled!!! I missed my usual drinks….

not as nice as the birdbath.....

not as nice as the birdbath.....

The shop had a limited amount of supplies….and it would have been slightly cheaper to have ordered online from Harrods!!! the service from the ”checkout girls” was not applicable….”service” emmmm….here’s ya change!!! (slapped into paw!!!)

  Back for a quick….cold, drizzled shower before off to showtime….yippee

A stand up comedian telling ten year old jokes…..followed by two singers and dancers (at least that is what it said on the board) as to whether they could sing I am blissfully unaware…I held my paws over my delicate ears for the duration!!! and the dancing look as if they desperately needed the toilet!!! at least the gold-laden mouthy families seemed to enjoy it….although I think the ten pints of lager (and that was just the off-spring!!) seemed to ease the pain of the “show”      

and then came Bradley Bear and Rory the Tiger!!!!

 

Bradley and rory...

Bradley and rory...

If any of you out there have ever been to a British Holiday campsite and witnessed these people dressed  up as “animals” I need not say anymore….for those lucky ones who have not….stay lucky my friends

I had my portrait done…. hope you like it!!

me crossing the bridge at sunset!!!

me crossing the bridge at sunset!!!

I will get my daddy peep to put more pics on soon….

 

Missed you all  lots of love and cuddles….Mr D

They sent an army of camels….

by on Jul.23, 2009, under The Cats!

Andy Pandy and his mates!!!!

Andy Pandy and his mates!!!!

WOW…..we have just come close to having surrender..

 

We were just giving Ms Stephanosis (the ex porn star) a run for her money when Llubyloo turns up along with a gang of camels (Llubyloo2) boy did they charge at us…..umbrellas, gas masks, and our tent was beginning to buckle under the strain and smell of the attack

 

Then Llubyllo called a tea break…..PHEW….that was a close one….(I nearly had to leave my Bruv Mr Ceylon and run indoors) i have a weak tummy you see and certain smells….like babies nappies, human fart etc all make me heave…….and vomit!!!

 

Well…..we had better go and check Mr D…and perhaps feed him….MOL MOL

 

Please leave any comments…..esp if you like me and me bruv….!!!!

and then came ahh_shazbot

by on Jul.23, 2009, under The Cats!

well….day two of the kidnapping….and we still have control of Mr D’s twitter account and this blog!!

This morning we were quite disgusted by the common behaviour of AndyPandy the camel…

Tonight we faced a onslaught of abuse from Stephanosis….she rallied round trying to build a force against us…..but we were not to be beaten, having slept off all the lager and vodka consumed with our girlfriends valberg1 & salandpepper, and managing to nick two frozen sausages/a piece of cake and some blood from one of the kid’s fingers who live with us! we were more than ready to take on the likes of Stephanosis and her wussy doggy Jessie

She tried desperately to come between us and our tortie feline girlfriend Medusaj…..but medusaj likes a bad boy….and calls us her rough cut diamonds….we feel kittens coming on!!!!!! MedusaJ knows which side her bread is buttered….so move over Stephanosis…go back to the nursing home and take ya tablets!!!!!! MedusaJ loves us and that’s how it’s gonna stay!!!!

Sarahgb and Justine_hughes have slightly different tactics!!!….one tactic was laughable - actually Mr Ceylon….(who is the muscle…whereas I am the brains) fell off his stool laughing and spilt the beer he was drinking all over himself!! They actually tried to frighten us with a “girlie” cat called “Poppy”

"poppy" MOL MOL!!!

"poppy" MOL MOL!!!

Poppy came via Justine_hughes and was laughed all the way back to her…..come on girlie’s can’t ya do better than that???? we could have eaten poppy for breakfast….MOL

Then came the second part of their tactics…..they have arranged a big party on Friday…..in Twitter world…now me and me Bruv, Mr Ceylon love a gathering…..bit of light music (esp from the car speakers….boom boom!!!), good food, lots of beer….and loads of Girlie’s!!!!  So as we “have” a twitter account that means we should be included….however it seems like it’s going to be a posh “do” and it’s “by invitation” only…….BORING!!! and apparently there is a vote going on as to whether we are invited or not…we have a couple of options open to us….

1. we act really nice (to everyone….including Duck face, Llubyloo, and Stephanosis) and try to get some manners from eBay or Amazon. then release Mr Darcy…dress up in our best furs and behave for the evening

2. or we just gatecrash….

GUESS WHAT?

and BTW we have got manners….why who supplied our girlfriend valberg1 with bog roll to wipe the snot from her nose….silly wench was crying cause we stood her up….we were actually busy chasing MedusaJ round the garden and sunbathing with Salandpepper & lady_twitster!!

 

Anyway….after all this the night kinda went down hill…

Stephanosis tried to get Jimmykingofcats on her side….what she does not realise is Jimmykingofcats is as rough and ready as us…..loves biting heads of mice….chewing baby birds and partying all night!!!!

Then Stephanosis tried to involve us in her porn ring….for those of you who are not aware…..it is actually Ms. Stephanosis who parades around twitter disguised as “Britney F*^#ed Vids” she gets all her sausages from her local butchers…then gets her husband to take suggestive photos of herself munching on the sausage!!!!…..we will say no more on the subject….but twitter and the local police are watching her and the amount of sausages consumed daily!!!!!

Then Duck face – lookski turned up….starting threatening us with photos…..now we know that most the pics of us nicking those cars last month have been distroyed…..also the ones of us Doggin…sorry catting down the lane have gone….the police still hold pics of the petrol station “incident” but that ain’t been proved yet…..so we were a tad concerned what “photo” duck face was threatening us with…

THEN….AHH_SHAZBOT TURNED UP….with the photos…

You know when a male cat is tortured with threats of having his “nuts” removed, it is enough to bring tears to your eyes….but when pictures of recipe books are published…and there is talk of rusty knives……

It really does not need a caption!!!

It really does not need a caption!!!

 It was enough for me and my Bruv to retreat for the night…..and go somewhere quiet, drink lager, eat crisps….and occasionally give those precious ginger nuts a lick!!!!

 

If we can keep Mr D quiet for just a few more hours we can get to the party and do some #Followfridays!!!!

Don’t let those bed bugs bite ya!!!

 

Mr Corky and his bruv…..Mr Ceylon…*snog*
