Helping! (Part II)

Rachel has been ever so busy recently, you probably noticed, as she hasn't blogged for a while... She is writing up her PhD, whatever that means. She was trying to think of a title for this PhD thing, we suggested "How Many Kitties Do I Need And How Cute Are They?", she frowned but said she'd add it to the list of possibles...

As well as being ever so busy at work and having to stay there late, she also has been pretty busy with Mog's Togs. Apparently we were featured in an Etsy Finds email last week and since then lots of people have realised how amazing we are and bought collars for their cats from us, yay!! So she's been sewing away to finish all the orders that have been coming in, and we have tried to be as helpful as possible. I thought it would be helpful if I scrabbled around on the shelving unit and knocked things off, and then when Rachel didn't seem too impressed with that, I tried to pounce off the DVD tower onto the printer. Lila had other ideas though, I think she was on the right track as she didn't get told to go downstairs and bug Pete instead...

Gosh this is a huge mess isn't it... Do you want me to do some tidying?!

Do you need an extra paw?

I'm always here for moral support!

Don't Let The Cat Out Of The Bag For Life

Hello, Mia here. I've been enjoying spending the evening sitting in this French bag for life recently. I'm not going to tell you why, maybe because it's a bit crinkly, or maybe the other shopping bags inside it make it nicely insulated, it will remain a mystery to you. Rachel said I looked cute and took a video...

Leftovers From Year One

OK, so Lila promised you some nice photos of us - here they are! They never made it to a blog post of their very own, so we figure it's time to clear them out in preparation for a new year of beautiful photos of us *preens*.

Firstly - us out in the garden. We love to hang out on the garden wall keeping a neighbourly eye on things. [nosing at the neighbours, more like - Ed.]. Cats make excellent guard dogs, you know... oh wait, not dogs, you know what I mean...

We'd headbutt intruders to death

Here I am watching TV at Christmastime - I never usually take any notice, but I loved these polar bears!

I want to play in the snow!

Usually when Rachel & Pete clean the house we escape to the garden - don't worry, it doesn't happen very often ;-). This time it was raining outside when they got the hoover out, so we didn't fancy going out, instead we bravely huddled together on this chair ...

We don't usually sit as close together as this...

Me hiding under the cupboard in the study. I probably can't fit there anymore...

Who's tail is that?

  Ahh look at pretty Lila! She's very playful sometimes, you know. But what's happened to her ear?


Out in the garden again, and double decker kitties! The best thing to do in the wheelbarrow is to roll around in the dirt in it. And then go inside and roll around on the carpet.

Mia it's your turn to push me now...

We do try to be helpful when Rachel is working hard on the business side of Mog's Togs. Look, I've filed myself away for future reference.

Should I be in C for cat or F for feline?

We hope you've enjoyed our posts over the last year!!! Don't worry, we've got no plans to stop. If you're new to our blog, why not have a look at our older adventures, there's a list over there on the right hand side.

Circle Of Life

Rachel and Pete were out all day today, and apparently while they were out they watched the Lion King 3D at the cinema, which is supposedly, like, the BEST Disney film, like, EVER. When they came home they were singing Elton John songs (badly), and then this happened!!

Can you feel the love tonight?

I know, the similarity is uncanny...

 *Sigh*. Mia is going to need a LOT of Whiskas Temptations for this...

Blogiversary Giveaway!

To celebrate our first anniversary of blogging and a year of Mog's Togs too, we are having a little giveaway!

The prize is a lovely collection of bits and bobs for feline and owner alike. For your cat: firstly, a cat collar of your choice... which will you choose? We've put a few ideas below for you, and we will be on hand to provide feline fashion advice if you require it (or check out this post)!

Two catnip mice toys made by Rachel's fair hand from upcycled fabric and remnants from collar making. These are carefully sewn to keep them in one piece for as long as possible, and each contains a heaping teaspoon of the good stuff to drive your cat crazy!

The one on the left is Edith, and on the right is Reginald.

For the human... A sheet of cute cat stickers, a cat craft punch, and a fabulous "Beautiful Cats" set of playing cards! It's true, they were purchased at the local bric-a-brac store, but they appear to be unopened and intact. There's a different photo of a Beautiful Cat on every single card!! THAT'S 54 ADORABLE MOGGIES!

Ooh, with these exquisite cat goodies you are really spoiling us..
So, I hear you ask, how can I enter to win this cornucopia of goodies? It's pretty easy, you just need to leave us a comment on this blog post, either letting us know what your favourite blog post has been over the past year, or which collar you would pick if you won (have a look at our shop for that). The winner will be chosen at random from all entries received before midnight GMT on Thursday 10th November. The giveaway is open to EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE!


PS - Please make sure there's a way I can contact you if you aren't commenting from a Blogger account - a twitter name, facebook page, etc (or your name if we know you from a previous Mog's Togs order). As a last resort you can email your email address to, or just make sure you check back on Friday 11th to see who the winner was!
