London Pussycats

Smitonius:

Walking around London, capital city of Dick Whittington (and his famous side-kick Puss in Boots), there are plenty of cats to be seen. Some real, like the Stoke Newington cat called Marmite who lives in the local newsagent's shop (far too shy to have it's photo taken!), and some who are not - like this grafitti cat sprayed on a wall near Clissold Park:



Then there is this stunning cat on a poster for a play at the Unicorn Theatre:



And this Cyclops cat on a poster advertising the children's literary festival at the South Bank: Imagine 09:



Congratulations to Eva, who won the buttons in the competition! They are in the post to you now.

it's wonderful what loveliness can be found in a city to brighten our day if we just have the eyes to see. i love that one-eyed cat.

there's something in the mail for you, too.

The graffiti cat is my favorite. Such a sweet surprise in all of that concrete. I'd have taken a picture, too. :)

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! I am always thrilled to receive them - and especially from a new reader! So thank you for taking the time to leave me your thoughts.

And if crisps are synonymous with potato chips, then yes, I do indeed love crisps. :)

Have a lovely day!

The graffiti cat is my favorite, someone cleverly stopped at just the right time...purrrrfect...(sorry couldn't resist).
