Gah, can't understand why naming this kitten is so hard, usually the names are pretty obvious.

Poor thing unfortunately it's more common than people think, and a lot of the time it's caused by a severe ear infection left to run rampant

Jackson (as in Michael Jackson.. Man in the Mirror, and Diirrty Diana)?

I once had a dog called Higgins, named after the butler in Magnum PI, and a cat called Wicket (as in the ewok, not the game). Ive got awful taste in names... Wisely we don't have children.

I can hear Kovu snoring in the attic above me. Think he needs to go on a diet!

Sorry way to late, they are amazing, Google Gordon Ramsey chocolate fondants, his has turned out best so far, chill 24 hrs before cooking for best result, but an hour is fine.

Bailey gave me a fright earlier. We were in the park having coffee as normal, as we went to leave the market area he was transfixed by something but I didn't know what - had to call him and tug on the lead a few times to get him to come with us.. Anyways he got excited further on and wanted to run around with Lucy and Rebel so I let him off - I've been gradually increasing his off lead time and all good... he did a few rounds of zoomies and sped off back to the market, called and tried the whistle as I was running after him while trying not to draw attention to myself and my now out of control dog but he kept running in the direction of the cake stall I'd visions of him robbing something/knocking a display or the whole thing down but he stopped just before it - somebody had spilled hot chocolate and he was lapping it up much to a crowd of onlookers amusement!! I pointed out a marshmallow he'd missed and led him away!... I partially blame my friend because she couldn't finish her tea and gave it to him a few mins before so gave him a taste for it. So much for my training him to settle when we're out at a market etc progress - yet again he's rewarded for begging by her!
