Rincewind


We adopted Rincewind when he was 6 weeks old. A work colleague had had a stray cat make her home in his garden, and when she produced 4 kittens and they became too much for his small flat he asked around in the office if any one could offer homes. I took my other half over there after work and he fell in love with Rincewind right away.Rince has had the time of his life with us these last 2 years. His back yard is a huge cornfield, and his pals and playmates are a gang of farm cats and seemingly neverending groups of pheasants and rabbits from the fields. He's been far from the dangers of busy roads and has truly led the good life out in the English countryside ;)These next few weeks will see a change in our lifestyles as we pick up and move into town. It'll be a new adventure for Rincewind, and here's hoping he has as much fun in the back yard causing chaos with the town cats! (Yes, his collar-less days are almost at an end, lol) -Zoe

OOOHHH, it's the handsome RW from Rat and Cats! I love his story, he sounds as if he's in kitty utopia! Yes, a country cat to a city cat will be a big change but I bet he'll do just fine, along with the rest of your furry family!

Good Morning All, afternoon to those across the pond!

Hope Rincewind soon enjoys being a town cat!! Bet he can show the other town cats a thing or two he's learned in the country!

Hi Rince! You sure are a handsome boy. I'd love to give you a tummy rub too! It sure does sound like you're living in kitty utopia. I bet you'll learn to love town life just as much though.

I had a bit of a scare yesterday. I thought my Fitzy boy had been lost. Luckily I was able to find him and all is fine this morning. Whew! He had us all worried for a little while though, even my niece was upset cause she thought she had let him escape.

Rincewind, love your name. You are such a beautiful cat. What a magnificant tum you have, and not at all shy about showing it off.

Sounds like he was living a kitties dream of the country life. Rincewind, the English Country Cat.

And now he can be a Town Cat. Rincewind, the Town Gentleman Cat.

RW's head is swelling ;)

He's kept his collar on! he's getting the hang of it at last :o)

He's gorgeous! The picture on the left makes it look like he has faint stripes on his tail - is that just the lighting? The one on the right looks pure white. I'll have to go check out his blog and look for more pictures. I had quite a difficult time bringing up this site today - is that because Rosie's been accessing it over and over and over?

Kim said...

LOL!!! Naughty Karen, funny and naughty!

That's a first by the way, Rosie, SPEECHLESS! LOL!

It sounds like it's going to be a new adventure for you as well as Rincewind moving into town. He looks so pretty laying on the quilt. (on my right pic.)

When I first saw the picture on the left side I had to click on comments right away to see what Rosie said. I needed the laugh that it gave me. We sure don't want Rosie's computer to crash.

How cute! I finally got to look at all the kitties. I can't even see them from work anymore. I just wanted to say hi and check in. I still check everyones page everyday I just can't comment. I am off to bed now hopefully I will be back on tomorrow. Good night. Oh the move went well. Check Jake, Spot, Venters and stupid trivia.

Karen, that's so funny. That's why it's been so difficult to get here today, now I know. Rosie....!

His tail is all white - when it's not grubby ;o)
