Blogmas Day 12 | Meet Felix & Bella

If you follow me on Instagram / Facebook you will already have noticed these two popping up in recent posts/updates... If not, let me introduce you to my two beautiful 9 week old kitties...

Felix and Bella ❤

Before anyone starts judging me, saying stuff like "oh that's just a Christmas present, and a cat is for life not just for Christmas...." and "why have you had kittens when there are tonnes of cats in shelters that need re-homing" I know. I am fully aware of all this, however you may want to read this little introduction first as to why and how we have these kittens in the first place...

A little while ago I shared this post with you all with the news of a surprise arrival, despite already owning one tabby cat (who is called Bob and is now about 5 years old) we took in another young stray cat when I still lived at my parents house. Although she was very small and we thought she was still a kitten, we later found out she was pregnant and she gave birth to four beautiful little kitties! Unfortunately I was already preparing to move into my first house at this stage, so I did miss a lot of them whilst they were growing up and I thought we were going to have to re-home them all because my parents were adamant that they were not keeping any of them and we are living in a rental property so couldn't take them either.

However, our Landlady has very kindly allowed us to have pets in the house! So we went and picked up our troublesome twosome last weekend... They were just over 8 weeks old when we took them away from mom cat which is a reasonable age to do so after reading through several forums and blogs!... not to mention they were already running around like crazy, and they were eating and drinking normal kitten food, and only feeding from their mother for comfort purposes. So we set about the short car journey to bring them into our new home, which they did not enjoy at all! However, they soon made themselves at home once they were set free from their carry basket.

Once we had taken these two, my parents have "allowed" my younger brother and sister to keep the remaining two kittens as early Christmas presents, and are also keeping the mom cat too! My Sister Sarah has already written about her kitten on her blog which you can read here if you like? So all round good news!

There were three grey and white kittens in the litter and only one black and white like the mother, and we have had the one of each. The black and white we believe to be a male, and we have named him Felix - because he looks just like Felix The Cat on the TV ads and cat food packaging! The grey and white cat we think is female, and I originally wanted to call her Misty or Smokey or something along those lines because she is grey, but whilst searching for cat names I came across Bella and thought it would be perfect for her.

So far, although we have only had them for a week they have been up to lots of mischief... They run up and down the stairs so fast and are so noisy! They like to use our legs as scratching/climbing posts, they have been climbing the curtains and Christmas tree, and their favourite thing to do is play with the keyboard on my laptop before sitting on it and falling asleep! Here are a couple of pics of what they've been up to so far...

I wanted to introduce these two beautiful babies to you all, and I'll definitely be keeping you updated with them as we go along, and hopefully will have plenty of photos and maybe even some funny videos to show you too!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Absolutely gorgeous kittens and such playful little animals climbing your tree! I would love another cat but I just can't stand the idea of leaving mine when I go away to visit family or on holiday. My cat is 15 years old and an indoor cat so she's very lazy and quiet, no play for me anymore haha

  2. Oh these two are so precious! Their names suit them really well, by the looks of things

  3. I just rescued a little baby kitten from my backyard a few days ago and me and my family are now trying to get her healthy. We named her Belle, this is the first time I've ever had a cat so I'm clueless. I loved seeing Felix and Bella!

  4. SO CUTE <3

  5. I'm so jealous! My cats are 2 now and are still cute but nowhere near as cute as your two! They also loved climbing the Christmas tree and curtains! Enjoy them while they're still tiny! Ahhhh :') xx

  6. They are soooo cute, I'm glad you finally have them at your flat now, one kitten is a nightmare, I can only imagine what your two are getting up to.
    Bella & Felix are such cute names - and they are sooo cute!!
    Take lots of photos because they grow too fast.
