Summer Vacation

Happy new year everyone!  I hope 2015 is starting off well for you all.

Personally, I have decided to have a bit of a holiday, so I'm off to visit my mentoree in Kansas!


I hope this suitcase is big enough.

I'll be getting there on Monday (USA time) so be sure to check out Maggie's blog and see what we get up to.  It's going to be SO much fun!

Merry Christmas!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.  Maybe 2015 will finally be the year mama gets her butt in gear and helps me blog again!

Cats Blogosphere Christmas Card Exchange

Hi everyone!

As my typist has been completely useless this year, I have decided to punish her by making her co-ordinate the Cat Blogosphere christmas card exchange.


If you would like to participate, you can do it one of two ways.

1. Email me at teddyAThufflemawsonDOTnet with the following details:

Blog Name (eg Don't Bite)
URL (eg
Address cards to (eg Teddy Westlife)
email or snail mail (eg email)
Email address (eg teddyAThufflemawsonDOTnet - although you can put the proper email address in the email you send to me)
Mailing address (eg Tracey Koper, 1 Spring Street Melbourne VIC 3000 Australia)

Please make sure you put CB christmas card exchange in the subject heading of your email, and that you complete all fields.  You don't have to do a mailing address if you would prefer not to.  If you are doing a mailing address, please make sure to include your full state, zip code and country for those people who live in other places, and your human's name just in case.

2. There is now a document in the Cats With Blogs group on Facebook - if you are a member you can go and fill in your details there instead.

The Christmas Card Exchange is open to all cat bloggers, anywhere in the world.  You can choose to do either physical or virtual cards, both are acceptable.  Last time we participated, Huffle Mawson and I got WAY more cards than mum and dad did.  They were quite jealous.

Please submit your information no later than Friday 28 November 2014.

If you would like to download the graphic (as designed by the marvellous Glogirly), click here and choose the size you would like to use.

Teddy out!


Some of you have said you are having trouble with my email address, although I have certainly received plenty of your emails.  If it doesn't work for you, please try hufflemawsonATgmailDOTcom instead.

Today is a very exciting day.  Today I am four.  Years.

This is me when I was little:

Teddy 10

And this is me now:

Teddy 242

And I have had so many adventures, which means that mum and dad say I have used up 7 of my 9 lives, but I don't believe that because really, I am a lion.

It's party time!

World Famous Google Cat

Hi everyone, Teddy here!

Some exciting news today!  Mama was looking at our house on Google Street View the other day and guess what she saw!

Our picture has been updated and look who is in it!

If you click on the picture to make it bigger, you can see me in the open window!

So now I am a world-famous Google cat.

Teddy out!

All the latest news

Hi everyone!

I don't have that much to tell you, as my life is not that exciting during the winter.  I did get into another fight and got another abscess above my eye, but it's all healed up now so don't worry.  The photo below is not for little kittens!

Teddy 227

I haven't fallen in the pool again so that's good.

Mum and dad did not bring me any presents from Hawaii, they said that Customs would not let them bring tunas into Australia for me. Does anyone know who I should complain to about this situation?

In other news, I have a most excellent new box:

And that's it for now. Teddy out!

Two posts in one month!

I know, I can hardly believe it myself.  I made mum schedule this post for me, as she and dad have totally abandoned me and gone on holiday to Hawaii.  Oh sure, grandma and grandpa are staying here and looking after me, and truth be told I totally have them wrapped around my paw, fetching me ham, opening the door 27 times an hour, and making room for me on the bed, but still!

Teddy 225

How could any leave this cute face?

Catching up

Hi Everyone!  It has been a very long time since I wrote on my blog but really we all know who is to blame for that.  It's hard to get good humans who are well trained, that's all I'm going to say.

Teddy 222

Really, I have not been doing that much exciting stuff this year.  Here is a list for you:

  • I fell in the swimming pool twice
  • I got my head stuck in the pool fence once
  • I got into a fight and got an abcess on my cheek
  • I bit dad a lot of times
  • I bit mum a few times
I have also been mentoring the most lovely puppy, her name is Magaret Thatcher (Maggie to you, Mags to me) from the Army of Four.  You can check out some of our activites here, and here, and here, and here, and here.  She is quite the excellent student!

Other than that, I don't have much to tell you.

Teddy out!

I know I have been a bad blogger this year, but let's face, you're only as good as your typist.  And mine is BAD.

BUT today is a special day, I am three years old today!

Yep, when I first turned up here and mum tried to send me to the Cat Protection Society, I convinced her with all of my available cuteness that her life would not be complete without me.

I mean, how could she have resisted this face?

Teddy 07

And then I grew up to be amazingly handsome...

Teddy 201

And if anyone wants to come and hang out with me, I have ham and prawns and fresh water available all day.  Being three is a Teddy Good Time (patent pending) and there is much partying to be done.  Our hallway is perfect for a rousing game of Thundering Herd of Elephants.  Mum and Dad especially love it when I play at 3am.

Seriously.  You have to join in.

Meow like a Pirate!

Mr Puddy's mum made this AWESOME picture for me a couple of years ago. Since my own mum is being completely useless at anything related to blogging, I am using this one again. I really should make her walk the plank or something.

Exercising with Teddy Westlife

Hi Everyone!

I know it has been AGES since I convinced mum to help me write on my blog, but truthfully not very much has been happening here.

I have implemented a new exercise regime, to help with the boredom.

It's important to keep up your flexibility.

A question and a break

Some of you will know that my sister Huffle Mawson had her own Twitter account.  She followed and was followed by lots of kitties and pups, and even some humans.  Although she wasn't a prolific Tweeter, it was there.

Mum is trying to decide what should happen with her account.  Should it be deleted or maybe even turned over to me?  Do you have any suggestions?

Also, I am taking a blogging break for a little while.  We haven't really got back into the swing of things this year so we are taking a short break.

And just to demonstrate that I am still a BAD BAD boy, mum and dad had a new couch delivered yesterday and I have already scratched it.  So proud!

A serious case of the hots

Sorry I have not been blogging much.  We are having a very hot summer and when she's not in the pool, mum is sitting inside where it's cool.

Me, I'm lounging around being hot too.

Teddy 211

I hope it is not too hot for you!
