An evolutionary marvel – Dirds

Okay, you know how somethings on the interwebs just make you chuckle and you have to share them, well these Dirds did it for me.
They livened up my Wednesday completely! I hope they put a smile on your face too.

I know Stripes (#bestcat) licked her lips when she saw these tasty little critters.

Your Pet and You

Do you have a pet (or two)? We do, Stripes is her name and she is the world’s best cat. If you follow me on Instagram you will be very familiar with my feline companion, little business partner and shadow. Stripey Cat rules the roost in our house and life would not be the same without her.

I am sure I am not the only one who dotes over their pet, in fact I know I am not alone. You only have to go to De Waal park on a Sunday afternoon to see the numbers. People are obsessed with their four legged friends.

Tobias Lang had a brilliant idea, he started photographing his friends and their pets and suddenly folks from all over the world where asking him to capture them too. Check out his Facebook page to see. Tobias is in the process of putting together a coffee table book of his impressive collection. Here are a few of my favorites.

Out of action

Feeling under the weather

Apologies for falling off the radar entirely – seems that a platoon of nasty germs have set up camp in my sinuses and have managed to convert most of my head (brain included) into snot! Seriously… where does all this liquid come from?

Oh well, I promise to get back into things as soon as these nasty critters move base camp and I can breath again.

Dogs underwater

Everyone knows dogs love playing with balls and most of them like water, now combine these three and you have the ingredients for some really amazing photos. Seth Casteel from Little Friends Photo really has managed to capture the sheer brilliance of being a dog. Seth is a very talented photographer and his work has been featured on EXTRA, MSNBC, USA Today, The Today Show, ABC News, AOL, CBS News, JEOPARDY! and PerezHilton.com.

Okay yes, the last shot is of a cat, but hey, my house mate is a cat and I couldn’t resist. Needless to say Seth also takes some pretty fabulous photos of cats too.

Pets on Furniture

My latest addiction is drooling over fabulous websites that showcase inspiring interiors, and amongst my favorites is Desire To Inspire. It’s full of really amazing interiors, with plenty before and after shots to keep the aspiring home DIY enthusiast quite satisfied. I have often had to stop myself from spending “just 10 more minutes” paging through their delicious website.

Well I am now VERY proud to announce that our super amazing house mate, Stripey Cat has been selected to appear in their weekly Pets on Furniture feature.
Pictured below Stripey Cat are two other furry featured friends, Daisy sleeping on the gorgeous printed duvet and Elvis at home on the studded chair.
