Shhhhh! It’s cat hunting season!

*hushed voice, with a slight British accent*

Today on Cat Hunters, we are looking at capturing the elusive house cat. The house cat, Felis catus, can be hard to locate. They are adept at finding obscure hiding places, such as under (or in) couches, the highest shelf in the bathroom closet, or even in the ceiling. Sometimes, they hide so well they forget how they got there and have trouble finding their way out!

In an effort to capture a local specimen, we set out a humane cat trap. The trap was so appealing, the target cat was there within moments, investigating.

Doellie and her dolly

One of Kirra’s nicknames is ‘Doellie’ (pronounced ‘Dolly’), so whenever I see her playing with a doll, I always think ‘Doellie and her dolly’ LOL

Over the weekend she was playing with the doll a little bit. She would give hugs and want Mum to wrap the doll up in a blankie. And then she wanted to take dolly for a ride.

You know you have a toddler in the house when…

You find yourself washing things you never would have dreamed of washing.

Like fridge magnets.

Ah, the wagon

Kirra loves the wagon that Santa brought her for Christmas. She’s quite content going for rides, sitting there looking around. She does get quite concerned when the wagon stops.

“Why are we stopping, Mum? Why the camera, always the camera? Make it go. Make it GO!”
