Today’s #mbfeb prompt is “pompasetting”, which apparently is a Caribbean word meaning “showing off”. Gidget has an exquisite belly which she loves to show off 😉 (Photo from three years ago, now.)

Some of my favourite recent photos that I haven’t already posted are these: Gizmo munching on his dentastick! Probably anxiously, to make sure notorious bickie thieves (me and my family) can’t steal them. It’s a hard life being a dog 🐶

Gidget’s now five and a half, but the tidying I did yesterday uncovered a purple hair tie that she used to play fetch with as a little baby cat. When she found it, she excitedly demanded an immediate game of fetch, even though it was 10:30pm 😂 Still a kitten at heart! #mbfeb

Yesterday we got to bring Gizmo to the beach for the first time in a few weeks! Gizmo was loving it, charging around exploring every shrub, darting back and forth… he even got in a game of chasey with this other dog he met there. Great day 🐶

🐈 For today’s #mbfeb challenge post, I thought I’d share another photo of Gidget during the spell of hot weather we had last week. She wasn’t too convinced about needing to have her photo taken yet again 😅

So it’s 28°C outside and this cat is begging me to turn the heater on… 🤨

Ever the erudite cat, this one was transfixed by the quoll documentary that was on the other night. At least, I’m sure it was the thirst for knowledge and not any other reason that kept her glued to the screen 🤣 #mbfeb

Today I have another photo from when Gidget was a kitten. She’s always found comfort hiding behind the couch, and in this picture you can see some of her in the reflection in the window, too 😸 #mbfeb

Gidget says, “Mum… tell those mice to have some compassion and come out to be eaten!” 😼 #mbfeb

My neighbour’s cat, Gracie, has made herself a lovely bed out of a flowerpot 😸
