A little dramatic interlude

Bloggie pals!

A had a little kitty drama over the weekend! 

This little beauty appeared out of nowhere!


And what did Gumtree do?

Gumtree says: I am not hiding I am just quality checking this shopping bag!


Luckily Charlie was off on his adventures or he'd have gone for this sweetheart! He's SO territorial! 

Anyway bloggie pals! I won't have a blog post up on Monday, the 15th July, so see you all soon in a couple of weeks!

Stephen Tremp said...

Ha ha ha! Gumtree the rookie could learn a few things from the veteran Charlie.

Pasha said...

Lol, Gumtree, are you hiding from the black kitty? It looks like Sima! What if it's a nice sexy lady? Come out of the bag silly boy!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

That's a black beauty! Hi Gumster!

Katz Tales said...

Oh a black panther! how sweet! And we love that shot of the covert kitty-in-the-bag :-)

Helena said...

Gumtree was smart to hide, and if Charlie is territorial that stranger kitty better move out fast, 'cause I've seen cat fights and they aren't for the fainthearted!

I hope you have a wonderful week off (you won't be around for a happy reason, I hope?), but I'll miss you.

Mark said...

Awww that little stray is adorable. Congratulations, you now have a third kitty cat. Gumtree looked pretty cute hiding in the shopping too. One of my cats has done that before.

Tamago said...

That black kitty is beautiful! If Charlie is territorial, it's good he didn't see the kitty :-) Gumtree is so cute in the shopping bag! I know you are not hiding...maybe you are trying to go shopping with your mom :-)

Natalie Aguirre said...

Gumtree's so cute in the bag!

Fuzzy Tales said...

What a lovely cat, we hope s/he has a home!

Have a good blog break, and we'll wish you a happy birthday now. We have the day noted! :-)

Hannah and Lucy said...

Your sweet little cat friend is just like Maxie who lived with Mum before he went to the Bridge and she got us.
Hope Charlie and Gumtree didn't mind him visiting.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Oh, outside black cat is mighty fine looking. Awww, Gumtree. Love to see you peeking out of that bag.

ABBY said...

Rene said...

Oh my, your visitor was gorgeous! And Gumtree cracks me up. :-)

meowmeowmans said...

We know you weren't hiding from that beautiful panther, Gumtree! It's very, very important to make sure those bags are up to snuff. Well done!

April McLeod said...

What a beautiful black kitty! If he/she comes around again (and isn't looking for his/her owner you should adopt him/her!

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

What a delicious photo of Gumtree! So cute. See ya next time you post :)

Annie Bear said...

That kitty is a beauty! Aww...Gumtree, I think you're just a little bashful. You're very cute too! Charlie, you're missing out. :)

Eileen said...

The black kitty is gorgeous, hopefully he/she isn't lost. I'm sure Gumtree wasn't hiding, he simply had more important things to do!

See you soon!

klahanie said...

I wonder what's in the shopping bag?

Enjoy your break and enjoy the sunshine.

Esme said...

she is a darling-Gumtree is sweet hiding in his bag.

Manzanita said...

Awww that picture is adorable of the top of Gumtrees head. He wasn't taking any chances with a new cat. I don't blame him. New cats without their papers can be scary. Ha

DWei said...

He's not hiding or checking the quality. He's probably going to take a nap in it pretty soon.

Lynda R Young said...

The cats in my neighbourhood are super territorial and they have a clear hierachy. My poor cat is low on that hierachy and that keeps her indoors. I'm fine with that :P

Medeia Sharif said...

My cats react in different ways seeing other cats. One of them may hide.

Have a fantastic break.

Cheri Wildcatwoods said...

Lovely stranger!!! Gumtree looks so cute in the bag. Wishing you all a nice time off.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Oh my goodness they are SO adorable!!!

Julia Hones said...

Enjoy your break, Old Kitty! Keep these adorable creatures in good spirits!

Swami Zoe said...

You are very cute! Nice to meet you all. Me-Ommmm

Jennifer Shirk said...

Aww...are you keeping it?

Have a nice time "off"!

Romance Book Haven said...

Such a cutie. Loved the visitor, Gumtree. Why did you hide?

Nas

Jay Paoloni said...

Charlie's right being territorial. Gumtree is all he can stand. No more! No more!

fairyhedgehog said...

Aw sweet!

I love that Gumtree is hiding in a "dare to care" bag!

Madeleine Sara said...

Awh sooo adorable! I hope the inside of the shopping bag met with Gumtree's approval and that Charlie had a lovely strollin the sunshine. The black kitty looks like he wanted to play. :O)

Hart Johnson said...

Oh, she's gorgeous! I love black cats. They tend to be quirky, too, which is a bonus. Love Gumtree in the shopping bag!

Maria McKenzie said...

Such a beautiful visitor! Will two kitties become three?

Sarah Allen said...

Quality checking. Right ;)

Indeed a beautiful cat.

They're lovely pictures. I'm sure Charlie will know Blackie has been there. Maybe he'll like her. We can't wait for the next installment.xx

Ann Carbine Best said...

That IS a beauty, dear Kitty aka Jenn. And you have been a beauty also during the 3+ years I've been blogging. I'm about to post my second final farewell to blogging, this time for good. But I wanted to come over and tell you personally how much Jen and I have enjoyed being "pen pals" the social media way! We'll always have a soft spot for you, and wish you all the best in the coming years. If we're fortunate, in some future we may get to see you in person. And thank you for supporting me in my writing, and for reading and responding to my memoir. And you can always reach me via email! bestann07 at gmail dot com. (((( )))) (((( )))) Ann

Ann Carbine Best said...

Jen says to tell you that you are a wonderful, WONDERFUL person!!! It's SO true!!!!

Katie Isabella said...

Gumtree, of COURSE you weren't hiding. WHO would ever think such a thing? Not I. Not any of us. No No. Of course. You were checking the quality of the fabric of that bag.

XXXOOO

Rick Watson said...

That is a beautiful cat. We had a black cat many years ago that co-existed with our German Shepard Duke.
She didn't take any guff off the big dog even though he outweighed her by 100 pounds.

Lydia Kang said...

That bag of cat is TOO cute!

Marg said...

That is a good looking cat. Gumtree, that looks like such a good place to hide and also keep check on that new cat. We will miss you kitties and the Mom and hope that you all have a good little vacation. Take care.

Jamie Burch said...

Aww...poor Gumtree! I'm sure Charlie would have saved the day. Did they mysterious kitty go back to its home?

Hope you and the kitties have a wonderful weekend! *hugs*

RaShelle Workman said...

Glad the kitties avoided a cat fight. *snicker* Hope your weekend is going well. =)

Patsy said...

Aaaaw Gumtree!

Helena said...

My former kitty was black with green eyes and I still miss him. I'm glad Charlie wasn't around to start a cat fight.

Have a wonderful two weeks off, Old Kitty darling.

Maria Perry Mohan said...

What a beautiful cat, Kitty!

Elizabeth Varadan, Author said...

What a cute little visitor! Are you tempted to keep him/her?

Theresa Milstein said...

cleemckenziebooks said...

Have a great time off. Tell Charlie he has to step up his surveillance. That black kitty is staking out his territory.

tfwalsh said...
