Gordy the gorgeous British Shorthaired Cat

I have been a bit quiet this week, its been a great week here, we welcomed a new 'inmate' into our house.  Gordy is a 10 month old British Shorthaired black and silver tabby from my lovely friend Faith at Abyjem as well as making beautiful finding for jewellery and also some amazing rings, Faith breeds British Shorthaired Cats and they are sooo amazingly beautiful. 
 
Here at my house we have only ever had the dumpees, the abandoned mogs, those that need a home and no one else wants them, so Gordy is the exception to the rule...sort of...
 
Gordy is a bit simple, but that just makes me love him more.  When he was born he was a difficult birth and he struggled to breath, he danced with death a few times and Faith spent hours willing him to live, as did I as Faith was posting up lovely pictures of these 3 kittens that were fighting for life.  Gordy's brother and sister thrived and became the gorgeous cats they are today, but little Gordy struggled.  His little tongue sticks out and he dribbles, his co-ordination is still getting co-ordinated and he has no fear so finds himself in a few situations, like in Iz's food bowl during tea time, that wasn't a good plan!  Faith asked me if I was interested in homing Gordy, he needed a special home and after losing our Claude we had a space that was just waiting to be filled by a special cat and Gordy is that cat.  In just 5 days we have laughed and giggled, had our legs scratched watched Defi get beaten up and had the most amazing cuddles from a cat that purrs like a train - those were Faiths words and so true.
 
I will be posting the adventures of Gordy regularly he is a real character and will be a great inspiration to me here at Izzybeads I am sure.

Settling in, day 3, the blankie is mine.....

 
Investigating is fun



 
My new helper, just after I clicked the button little Gordy had to be rescued, I did say his co-ordination wasn't good, he almost had a bubble bath!
 
 
As I am feeling rubbish today, thanks to the daughter giving me a virus I might just head off to the settee for a few cuddles.....

  1. He#s beautiful, and such a lucky boy to have got himself such a fabulous forever home.

    I have a manky cold too, feeling very sorry for myself but have just been cheered up by a visit from our rescue cat Kitty, who is snoozing on my bed with me but staying well away from my Olbas oil.

    1. He is a bit special in every way isn't he? he is currently snoring his little head off whilst cuddled up to his fish toy. I am feeling a bit better today, just wish everything didn't taste of sawdust! Hope you are well too x
