Introducing Champers

This gorgeous ginger girl is Miss Champers. She lived next door to Jasmine many years ago.

The beautiful Miss Champers
The story of how they met is kinda funny, so I'm gonna tell you about it. One day Jasmine thought she heard someone at the front door, so she opened it. There was no bean there, but when she looked down Jasmine saw a lovely ginger poodin. The poodin just waltzed past Jasmine and into the house and if it was her own...

Champers (after walking a few metres into the house...): "Huh? Hang on a sec, this isn't my house!"

Jasmine: "Hello there lovely poodin. I'm Jasmine. Who are you?"

Champers: "Um, I'm confused, um, I mean, I'm Champers."

Jasmine: "Very nice to meet you. Where do you live?"

Champers: "I thought I lived here, but now that I'm inside I can see that this isn't my house. It does look a lot like my house though."

Jasmine: "I can see you are wearing a collar with a tag. Would you like me to check your tag for a phone number? I could contact your mum for you."

Champers: "Yes please."

[Jasmine then sent a text message to the number on Champers' tag: "Hi there. A gorgeous orange kitty has just wandered into my house. My address is..."]

*ring* *ring*

Jasmine (on the phone): "Hello. Jasmine speaking... Yes, she's here and she's fine... I thought I heard something at the door, and when I opened it, there she was, and she just waltzed straight in... Oh, you're just next door? You've just moved in? This group of townhouses look similar from the outside, I guess she just got confused which was her house... See you shortly..."

This was the beginning of a wonderful friendship between Champers and Jasmine. Champers visited Jasmine regularly after this (much to Jasmine's delight) until Champers' mum bought an apartment elsewhere and moved away. Jasmine hasn't seen Champers since then (over 4 years ago), but she still thinks about Champers and still misses her.

Big Cat Heads

BKJasmine discovered a blog called Big Cat Heads. She has been following it for a while now. It's written by an artist who paints kitties, lots and lots and lots of kitties! Jasmine just loooves his work. He is furry clever and comes up with lots of furry good ideas for funny kitty paintings. Just wanted to share this with efurryone because I think your beans will like his blog too.

Poodin White Christmas

There's been a lot of sadness around the cat blogosphere lately. Lots of furriends who are sick or have gone to The Bridge, and lots of poison food making poodins and woofies furry sick. We were feeling furry sad about all of this, so Peter tried to make us smile with this poodin Christmas video he found. It did make us smile, so we wanted to share it with all of you. I think we could all use some smiles at the moment.

Any bean or poodin want to learn the Rubik's Cube?

Spinning Rubik's CubeBKI mentioned Jasmine's cube hobby the other day. A couple of you commented that your beans used to play with cubes too, or that your beans thought they wouldn't be able to solve the cube.

Jasmine wanted me to post a link to her Beginner Solution to the Rubik's Cube in case anybean or poodin wants to learn. Jasmine has taught lots of people, and she says learning to solve the cube is much easier than it looks.

I think this is really more of a bean thing than a poodin thing. Opposable thumbs are furry important for cube solving. Jasmine tried to solve it once without using her thumbs, just to see if she could do it. She could, but she said it was much slower and more difficult, and wasn't much fun. She does, however, sometimes enjoy solving it with one hand. She said one-handed solving is easier than two hands but no thumbs, and that both of these things are harder than solving it with two hands including thumbs. Not sure why anyone would want to do this, but she seems to enjoy it.

Two white poodins

Spinning Rubik's CubeBKJasmine visited some speedcubing friends last night. The bean at whose place they were meeting has two poodins, a white poodin and an almost-white poodin. She forgot to take pictures of the poodins, so I can't properly introduce them to you. This was silly of her because one of my favourite things to do on this blog is introduce new poodins!

In case you didn't know, speedcubing means solving the Rubik's cube really fast. It's Jasmine's favourite hobby. She loves Rubik's Cubes almost as much as she loves kitties! Jasmine was furry happy last night because she got a new best solve time: 19.53 seconds!

Some small changes to my blog

BKThanks to all the poodins who left nice messages on my 100th post. Furry much appreciated!

I've made some small changes to my bloggie recently. The linkies list of blogging poodins was getting furry long, so I decided to convert it to one of those expandable lists, like Hot(M)BC's has. I try to keep the linkies up-to-date, but if there's anyone I've missed, please let me know and I'll fix it!

I've also adopted a Virtual Maukie. She is sitting in the sidebar underneath the profile box. She likes to play, so if you wiggle the mouse cursor around her, she'll try to catch it! She likes pats too. If you pat her head she'll meow, and if you pat her tummy she'll purr. She's such a nice little kitty.

I've been thinking about updating the template for this site too. Problem is that it's such a big task, much more than just modifying what's already there. Might keep thinking about that one...

One hundred posts!

BKI'm furry excited because this is the 100th post on Fluffy Feline Friends!

I've met so many nice poodins and beans through the cat blogosphere. It's been so wonderful to see how much love and support all the poodins and their beans give to each other. We've loved reading all the stories, celebrating the good news, and helping poodins through things like Artsy Catsy's Mu Shue Bookmark Benefit and sponsoring Ramona's Top Cats. We've also been touched by the sad news and hope that the purrs we send out help even just a little bit.

One of the most wonderful things for me was helping find a furrever home for Mr Crumples. I'm so happy that my little bloggie helped find a good home for a poor abandoned poodin.

Purrs to all my poodin friends, and thanks for making the cat blogosphere such a wonderful place!
