Not bad for a 17 year old! Spider is still very active and playful at his advanced age… ??? . #cats #oldcats #oldcatsrule #oldcatsrock #tabbies #tabbycats #gatos #katzen #katt #neko #ilovecats #kitties #cute #pets #animals #catstagram #catsofinstagram #catlover #catlady #catsoflanzarote #jump #jumpingcat #playful #playing #mycats #catlife #meow
I bought this lovely pet blanket at our local Lidl here in Puerto del Carmen yesterday, but after only one day of use, it looks like *this*, can you believe it?!
The material is obviously totally unsuitable for use with pets, and after only one day it looks like it is a few months old.
When I went back today to ask for a refund, I was told that it has “already been used” and I couldn’t get a refund. They also said “oh well, cats do scratch”, but that doesn’t justify the material being crap and it looking like this after ONE DAY! I would expect it to look like this only after many months of use…
I’m not a happy bunny and have written a stinky email to Lidl headquarters, and will have to wait and see what they say…
In the meantime, anyone planning to buy one of these blankets from Lidl, I can’t say I warned you! 😉
This is the complaint I wrote to Lidl headquarters in Spanish:
No me malinterpreten, yo esperaría que se vea como esto quizas en 2 o 3 meses, pero no después de sólo UN DÍA! Esta manta se supone utilizar para los animales domésticos, pero el material no es adecuado en absoluto.
Cuando fui a mi Lidl local en Puerto del Carmen para tener un reembolso, me dijeron que se ha utilizado el producto y no me devolvería el dinero, ni cambiarlo. Fue utilizado por UN DÍA SÓLO y no debería tener este aspecto!
Le agradecería si me hagan saber lo que puede hacer por mí, pero aunque no se puede usted hacer nada, esta manta no se debe vender para uso con animales.
Espero oír de usted pronto, muchas gracias.

A “documentary” of how a photo session with Spider went down wearing 3 different ties (plus some more adorable pictures of all 3 kitties) is HERE.
Just after sunset, Spider watches hawk moths and evening birds from the lofty heights of our balcony…
Poor Spider had an episode of vomitting and no eating recently, but after a quick visit to the vets and an anti-nausea shot, he was fine again within a day!
My good friend Mike of The Infinite Cat Project has today given a mention and sent belated birthday wishes to Spider and Lugosi, who turned 17 last month. Thank you so much, mate! 🙂
Make sure to visit The Infinite Cat Project which is a very unique endeavour of cats watching cats watching cats (a long line of 1810 cats so far!).
Ruby decides to have a shower at the same time as drinking from the tap…

Spider & Lugosi celebrated their 17th birthday yesterday. Yes, that’s SEVENTEEN glorious long years, which translates to around 85 human years. My boys are the same age as my grandad now! 🙂
If you want to find out how old your cat is in human years (or yourself in cat years), there is a nifty cat age calculator in the sidebar right here on this website.
