See why we love him?

See why we love him?

Simply the most handsome and affectioate tabby cat in the world....he even tries to uddle our dogs.
He was dumped on us (plus his mother and siblings after Mum had her litter at the scout camp next door).
At 17 years old we are preparing ourselves for the worst so we are lookong for a BP MkII but they are not easy to find.

Leena's answer

How absolutely adorable he is... And obviously quite a healthy cat to have reach such an advanced age!

I know how you feel about BP's age and the knowledge it may be he is not with you much longer. Still, as that day will come, and there is no stopping the natural way things are, all you can do is to enjoy his presence as long as he still is with you.

My cats have really "made old bones" in the past - 16 and 17 years of age. And I am wishing for these three we now have to stay with us for good many years still.

They are such family members you don't really think of them as animals. They have a presence, you know they feel love and have souls. They interact with you, "talk" to you in many ways, and live in your heart - and they remain there even after they have left their physical existence.

This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibition on his world tour of ten cities from March 2018 onwards

Tutankhamun: In My Own Hieroglyphs tells the story, for older children, of the life and afterlife of the famous young pharaoh in his own words. Tutankhamun tells us about the trouble he got into as a child in Akhenaten's palace in the new city of Akhetaten, and how he became a boy pharaoh. As we learn, his life changed a lot when he died as a teenager, and long years of boredom started in his tomb with only his pet monkey Fingers and his treasure for company. He did meet some of the Egyptian gods, of course, and had fun scaring off tomb robbers, but it was mostly rather dull. Then one day, some new and strange people, including a Mr. Howard Carter, arrived and began to take all the treasures out of his royal tomb. Fortunately, through the eyes of his beautiful golden mask, Tutankhamun, could have fun again traveling around the world

Mr Mummific

An ancient friend of mine, Mr Mummific dictated a book about how he became a mummy - and I was his scribe and artist. The book is available at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

On my other website www.ancientagypt101.com he continues his stories about life in ancient Egypt.

Another hilarious adventure for children with Mr Mummific, the mummy with attitude. He now tells the story of his mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures as he leaves his tomb through the False Door to embark on the complicated and dangerous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions. 

Find the book at Amazon.com  and Amazon.co.uk
