Jetikins Box Adventure

Jetikins Box Adventure
Hello,  Rappy here, mama can't put any new photo's up today cos her camera batteries died and she can't get anymore until she's got some spare pennies, so we are camera free until Friday anyway.  Jetikins is really happy about that cos he doesn't like that clickety thing.  But mama says she will find some old pics of us to put up instead, and one that she took when Stamps the Irish hedgehog postman came to stay with us.

Me and Jetikins frog and tadpole watching
Jetikins trapped himself inside a box this week, he could've got out if he'd really wanted, but mama started playing with him through the holes in the top, and he enjoyed that, then he dozed off until I came home and woke him up, we played patti-paws through the gap.  It was one of those long narrow boxes that have things like cauliflower or cabbages in them.  Papa brought it home with a big glass lamp in it, then he stood the box up on end against a chair and Jet started playing with it, he reached up to pull on a sticky-out bit and it fell on top of him.  There are little round holes in the bottom, which was now the top, so mama stuck the tail of one of our sisal mousies through and Jet caught it and pulled it through, then she found two more and he got them too.  When she put the toy dynamite stick cord down the hole he couldn't pull that through so then he went to sleep.

An old photo, but we are still doing this!
Papa with Stamps in Malton Market Place
Stamps the Irish hedgehog postman was knitted by mama's friend Geraldine, she lives in Dublin.  Stamps has travelled all over the world visiting members of Ravelry.com - a website for knitters and crocheters like mama and Geraldine.  He stayed with us for two weeks and mama took lots of photo's of him before he left us to go somewhere else.  Stamps has his own blog called 'Stampses Travels' and you can visit him here:

Boxes and cartons are the best toy for cats ! The prefer it to the most sophisticated and expensivest once humans have invented for them. Normal they are no cats !
You are lucky, you have a Father Christmas the whole year and he even dresses differently and not only in red ! Lol !

Such a great photo of you by the pond, and what a wonderful idea to have Stamps travelling the world.

Hi - sorry we haven't called back before but it's been one of those weeks - you are probably more organised than our mum so you won't get them. Can we put your cat bloggie on our blog roll so we can find you easily? We would like to visit you again and hope you'll find time to visit us too.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

It sounds like you had a great box adventure!

Such sweet pictures. We will have to visit Stamps for sure.
Sounds if that's a well traveled hedgehog.
