My Sunday Photo 10th March 2019

I was at a bit of a loss for a photo this week so I’ve decided to fall back on Ash, my kitten who is very nearly an adult now.

I’ve chosen this photo because of colours, it’s 50 shades of brown, well apart form his white paws. We bought the settees just a few weeks before getting Ash and I swear there was a little part of us that wanting him to match, hehe.

He’s not a fussy cat which is a shame because we all want to fuss him. Maybe when he grows up a bit he’ll enjoy a little more fuss. His older sister thinks nothing of jumping on your lap and is currently cuddled up on the Little Man, whereas Ash is hiding behind the curtain.

Ash loves to play outside, but he’s in and out every five minutes. We really need a cat flap but our doors are double security so we can’t have one. Last Summer Ash was too young to go out so we couldn’t have the patio doors open and we had to roast inside. Thankfully this year we’ll be able to have them open again and Ash can come and go as he pleases.

    A real cutie .. almost made me want a cat … or at least a kitten … and the couch is not bad either! But we’re committed doggies, and I could see Lily making a cat’s life hell … or vice versa!!

      Ash is a cutie, and I’m a cat person, but that’s probably because they are easier to look after. I have to agree, I don’t think Lily and Ash would get on at all πŸ™‚

    Such a cutie! Love the idea of matching pets to furniture – we have a dark coloured dog to stop hair showing on our mostly dark clothes πŸ˜€

      I don’t get too much hair from my cats, but when I do it’s usually on my curtains! It’s a good excuse to buy new curtains though πŸ™‚

    He’s adorable! He reminds me of our first cat, we had her for 18 years!

      We had two of our cats for 17 years, they become real family members don’t they x

    Aww! He is a lovely looking cat. Not much of a kitten anymore at all. x

      True Kim, but I was expecting him to be a huge cat because he has huge paws. At the moment he’s no bigger than Sabrina who was our tiniest cat. x

    It’s always nice to have pet photos to fall back on, especially when the pet is as cute as Ash! He really does blend in very well with your sofa.

      I won’t tell you how many times I’ve nearly sat on him πŸ™‚

    That sofa was certainly made for Ash! My experience with cats is they like nothing better than the door being half open while they sit on the doorstep and everyone inside freezes!

      Yes, that sounds about right.

    Oh wow they are both beautiful. Our cat has got a bit more cuddly As he’s got older but he won’t sit on laps for long sadly #mysundaysnapshot

    Hi Anne, Ash has grown into a lovely looking cat and looks very bright eyed and bushy tailed. My little dog isn’t one for fuss either despite being a small dog, he’ll sit by my feet and enjoys a shoulder rub before bed, but other than that isn’t fussed at all. I hope Ash becomes a little more snuggly with age.

    Aww what a cute little kitty she is. Such a gorgeous wee thing. I love that she is so snuggly x

    Cute kitty! Thanks for linking up to #MySundaySnapshot.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
