Nibbins on the left, Mavis on the right. We couldn't decide on a name for one cat ("I'm not having a cat called Nibbins, it sounds too stuffy and Victorian " "Mavis is a daft name for a cat. it reminds me of my old aunt"). Happily there were 2 black cats in the litter so we had both. The name Nibbins comes from The Midnight Folk by John Masefield (the prequel to the better known Box of Delights ). He is a reformed Witches cat who helps Kay Harker locate the treasure and thwart the evil Abner Brown and Sylvia Daisy Pouncer (just occured to me that they would have made good cat names). They were born on Friday 13th September and came to live with us at Halloween.
Arthur has been having a go at sculpting his own figures. Here's a rather jolly troll.
