I’m small but mighty and I’m a real people puss. I love getting head rubs and shoulder massages and will pay you back with super boops and purrs. My mom says my purrs would melt a stone.
I enjoy hanging out with humans and checking everything that’s going on. I like being brushed and will strut around like a supermodel while you are doing it. I am also kind of cheeky when I get to know you, and will use all my charms to get what I want.. lots of love and your full attention.
I get on well with other cats and don’t mind the dogs here, but I do try very hard to get “illegal” snacks from my housemates which the humans tell me is not the best idea with my restricted diet.
You might notice I look at bit odd in this picture. That’s because I had a rather bad start in life and if it wasn’t for the super heroes of North Dublin Cat Rescue, I would never have made it at all. But they found me and took care of me and got me a home that I like.
I have ongoing issues with my digestive system which means I am only allowed to eat one type of food. I had skin issues which meant all my body hair had to be shaved off, and as you can see, the white bits are growing back a bit faster than the dark ones. Mom thinks I look a bit like Zombie cat but that I’m beautiful anyway.
I’ve a long way to go yet before I get up to a good weight, but I am working hard with the help of my mom and Fox Veterinary Clinic who are the nicest people you could meet. I will have mom tell you more about my journey as she updates this blog site . Miaow for now!
In the second week of January I decided to have a bash at the Zero to Hero challenge, which proposed that following the exercises would increase my knowledge of how to use WordPress to best advantage. It was primarily aimed at new bloggers who perhaps would not have much experience of messing about with the available tools in WordPress, and in that context, I think this would have been a very useful tutorial. The thing is I am already an inveterate tweaker and had delved into most of the tasks that were suggested during the month, so I did find participating every day to be something of a chore. That being said, I’m glad I took this on, because it prompted me to get my digit out of my orifice and do something about getting people to read my deathless prose, and I did learn about a few things I hadn’t discovered through my normal trial and error approach.
Did my readership improve? Well, I have also taken up the Daily Prompt challenge and from looking at the viewing stats, that was far more effective in bringing my blog to the attention of others, largely because of the pingback setup, which for some reason was not operated on Zero to Hero.
So, rather than re-hash all my thoughts on the daily tasks, I’ve listed them all below. The first link on each line should bring you to the task as described on the day, and the second and sometimes third links are my responses.
Cee asks participants to answer four questions about themselves every week.
This is what Cee says:
I ask 4 questions each week so all of us can get to know each other better. In the past I’ve written columns like this in newsletters for various companies and organizations. And it was everyone’s favorite part of the newsletter. Since blogging is an international activity, I also thought this would be a great way for all of us to get to know each other. Share things about you, your home, your town, your country, your traditions. So once a week, I’ll post four new questions for you to answer about yourself or the area in the world you live.
