12 years with my rescue kitty Mickey

This is Mickey my bossy and temperamental 15 year old cat. We adopted him when he was 3 years old from cat protection and he was so shy and timid. From what i was informed from cats protection he was rescued after being mistreated by his owner. Fast forward 12 years and he is now overly confident and rules the roost aswell as ruling half the street. He has his own territory (that he marked out) that he surveys at least 4 times a day. And he has this ability (i like to think its a super power!)  to sense when another cat puts a paw in it. He can go from being fast asleep to doing a runner out the cat flap in 2 seconds. Last week he had trip to the vets to have his teeth removed (due to old age and catching too many birds) and for 3 days after he sulked and refused to even look at me so it was obvious he was holding a grudge. He has now decided to get pay back by waking me up at 4am for the last 4 days demanding food and how does he wake me up? By literally licking my ear..... yep you heard me right. And do i give in? yes! just so i can get some sleep. But although he has has his days where he can be grumpy (i mean who doesn't?) , he is still a very loving cat, who loves cuddles (on his own terms) and loves being fussed. From the first day he put his paw in our house i honseslty think he was just relieved to be somewhere safe and soemwhere he is treated lovingly. He has fully cemented his paw print on our families heart and we cant ever imagine him not being here.

    Dr. Oetker Ristorante review

    I am a huge pizza lover but usually tend to avoid frozen pizza's. So when i was invited to review a pizza from the Dr. Oetker Ristorante range i was very intrigued and the first thought that popped into my head was, will it taste as good as a fresh pizza. Well i can tell you all that i am now a frozen pizza convert! The packaging was inviting and well presented and displayed a picture of the pizza which looked so yummy!   I tried the Ristorante Pizza Pollo and it was bursting with flavour! 

    The smell that was coming from the oven whilst the pizza was cooking was so enticing! The pizza toppings included slices of marinated chicken breast and a mix of spinach, tomatoes, sweetcorn, mozzarella and Edam cheese. The toppings were very generous and tasted amazing. The base cooked beautifully and was lovely and crispy and as soon as i pulled it out of the oven everyone wanted a piece. Dr. Oetker Ristoranteis now my go to pizza! And dont forget if you pick up a promotional pack you can get a free pizza!

    Teisseire Grenadine Review

    Wow this drink is full of flavour and almost feels as if fruits are bursting in your mouth when drinking it. You also get a slight taste of yummy vanilla that complements the berries perfectly. Its a perfect drink for sharing with family and friends and thats exactly what we did and everyone loved it! The Teisseire Grenadine comes in a very attractive 600ml metal bottle, which looks very sleek and stylish and fits easily in the fridge. One bottle makes 5 litres of the Grenadine fruit drinkand it lasted us just over a week. With 0% sugar this drink just proves that flavours can speak for themselves and you  dont need spoonfulls of sugar to have a tasty refreshing drink. The grenadine is alcohol free so is very versatile and we used it to make yummy milkshakes aswell. The  average price for a bottle is £3.49 and we have definetly added it to our weekly shopping list.

    This yummy refreshing drink gets a 10/10 from me and has inspired me to try some other Teisseire flavours. To see the full range of flavours on offer click Here 
    (availible at Asda, Waitrose, Ocado and Morrisons)

    New Jacobs cracker crisps, sour cream and chive review!

So far i have tried the sour cream and chive flavour and they are soo yummy! Full of flavour and very moreish!
