My Furry Babies And I.

                                   The Story Of Duchess And Binkey.

                    I wasn't sure if I was going to write this blog post, but I changed my mind after much deliberation I have two very special people in my life who I would go to the End's of the Earth for and those two special people are my Furry Babies my adorable Cat's,  Duchess and Binkey, in 2011 a Grey Cat appeared  in my garden she was emaciated and looked awful and I thought she was a stray, she was so thin she had a massive head and a little body, her tail was the size of my little finger, I didn't feed her at first, then I couldn't help myself, I started giving her little bits of ham and believe or not bread and butter, she kept coming back and of course I kept feeding her slowly she didn't look so thin any more, surely she must have been a stray, someone couldn't be treating an animal like this,  eventually I called her Binkey and she became my Cat.   After a few weeks of livin it up at my house I found out that Binkey had an owner who lived behind me who couldn't careless about her,  I wanted to cry but I realised I had probably saved her life, she is part of my family and we all love her very much.
                   About six months after, one morning I saw a small trail of blood, part way across my front drive way and then I spotted a cat with half of it's tail hanging off the Cat was scared and ran away,  I didn't know where she had gone,  after two weeks I saw the same Cat in my garden with half a tail eating a bird, she managed to catch, she was also half starved I said surely  Binkey's Ex owner couldn't have had more than one Cat I didn't think that the newly Christened  fluff ball Had a Brother or Sister?  I eventually found out that Binkey had a Sister who was also being neglected, I started to feed her and gave her the new name of Duchess because Prince William had Just Married Kate  MIddleton and she was now a Duchess.
                   Both Cat girls became my Furry Babies and are now safe, happy and content I told the person who used to own them "your Cats are now with me and if you I see you mistreat any other animals I will report you"  Two months later the idiot person walked past with a brand new Puppy
I couldn't believe it "what a Bastard".  They eventually moved house. So I have no idea where they have gone to. 
                   So that is the story of how I came to have my Cats, they are loving and funny and a little bit snobby and we adore them. Binkey is my little Princess who is the boss but as soft as a brush and Mimi is and anxious Cat who loves to talk to you and have a little conversation.  I am so glad they have come into my life and I hope they feel the same way about me.

Climate Change Tips, What You Can Do To Help.

With all the talk about climate change, and all the protests in London at the moment, I wanted to do a little research about it, of course I have heard of climate change, since the late eighties, when I first heard of the term The Ozone Layer, we did learn a little about it, but to be truthful it never really went any further than that.  But lately with all the talk around I have been thinking very carefully about this planet we have borrowed to live on.
  I have done a lot of reading on the subject  in the last week and have been surprised how many things I can do to help climate change I  have decided to adopt some if not all of them for myself, some I already have done without realising that I had.  Can you imagine if all of us do our bit for the planet we might be able to save so much of it for future generations. Here are my tips, can you help?

I came to the conclusion of, why am I worrying life is to short just go with it. And I did.
