Photo Hunt - Bags

The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is bags. Not only are bags things that you carry other things around in, it also stands for the British Angora Goat Society.

Back n August we took delivery of a new pet which we were assured was a British Miniature Indoor Angora.



Delighted with our new resident we decided that we should join BAGS forthwith



Imagine our shock and disappointment when the society wrote back to inform us that there was no such thing as a Miniature Indoor Angora. What we had taken in was in fact a cat. We were this told not to bother the society until we obtained a real angora. Furthermore we were advised to avoid sellers of Norwegian Blue parrots or of magic beans



Ah well so Boris is really a cat. He's still a handsome fellow!

Oh, he certainly doesn't need to belong to BAGS, he's got style on his own and he is a truly handsome cat!
Happy weekend!

Thanks I just felt in a silly mood this weekend!

Annie said...

Ha ha, I love this! Boris is soooo handsome. And that fact that there really is a Goat Society cracks me up!

We both worked cats into the theme this week! Hope you and yours have a great weekend.

Oh my goodness, this theme was perfect for your tweaking. That is a beauty. I want a cat too someday. I will get someone like Boris.

Happy halloween weekend. BTW, boris is the color of the season too.

Teeheeheehee -- VERY creative, Jams. Thanks for the giggles! :D

LOL. Feeling taken? Well never mind he is truly a handsome fellow and I'll bet you would not exchange him for anything.

Happy weekend Jams

CRIZ LAI said...

Happy Halloween!

He is a beauty. I just hope the breeder didn't charge you extra for spurious upperclass documents.

Randi said...

Too funny - love this story!

Cute cat and you have a good choice for the theme. Happy hunting!

Ann said...

I am not a cat lover, but your cat has melted my heart.

Having said that I am not a cat lover, I belong to a Cat cafe, I mind strays.

jams o donnell said...

THanks everyone. Boris is a darling.. Luckily we didn't pay a penny for him Susan!

Bengbeng said...

He is indeed a handsome fella. You take such good care of him too :)

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Hahaha! Boris is a beauty...er...he sure is handsome!

Aileni said...

Stuck-up bunch. Looks like you have nice cat anyway.

Brilliant post!

Daisy said...

Boris is adorable! Since he cannot join BAGS, maybe he can join BOKS (beautiful orange kitteh society).

Omiae said...

Aw, lol. I understand the confusion though. Haha. :D Very interesting post! And what a majestic cat!

marcia@joyismygoal said...

That seems rude and too bad bbut glad you enjoy the Cat:)

Sherry at EX Marks the Spot said...

Very interesting, Jams, the way you brought in BAGS. Boris is quite fluffy and looks rather cuddly as well.

ian said...

what a snotty society! better start your own British Angora Non-Goat Society- now that's a lot of BANGS hehe have a great weekend! thanks for visiting my blog earlier =]

Lisa said...

hee hee!

marta said...

He is definitely a beauty. And a fun take on this week's theme. He could never be a goat!

Alice Audrey said...

Nothing miniature about your cat, but maybe something angora.

Sparkle said...

Maybe he would be miniature for a goat, but Boris is definitely NOT a miniature kitty! :-)

diXymiss said...

Very amusing, Jams. Sir Boris looks worthy of his very own regal society. Sadly, I'm a member of the other BAGS (Beastly Allergic Girls Society). Aaa-choo!

rdl said...

Cute & Big!

Bim said...

I suspect you and Boris are secretly quite happy that he's not an angora goat ...but I love your take on the bag-theme :)

girasoli said...

Very clever! The magic beans would be the give away for me. Boris is very handsome :)

magiceye said...

boris sure is handsome and i hereby invit you to join Pet Pride
a great place to be for all pets and their owners!

Awww she's really a beauty! She'll be happy to be in the BAGS..

Please check out what my daughter think and more…

CherryPie said...

I love that second photo :-)

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone

Knatolee said...

He is deliciously fluffy! And I think they should give him an honourary membership in BAGS.

jams o donnell said...

Oh he is Knatolee.. he is also a spoilt little brat at times too!

oldwhitelady said...

What a sweet beautiful goat..er...cat. He looks so much like an Angora goat that I'm thinking BAGS might have been lying to you.
After all, I have an orange and white cat and he is nothing like this cute little fella.

Stephanie, Mama Dramatist said...

You could still use that gorgeous fur for something. Boris is lovely, but I'm quite sure his fur is in lovely patches all over your home. In a year's time you'll have enough for a sweater! With Angora texture!

jams o donnell said...

Aww I bet you ginger gent is a handsome fellow Oldwhitelady!

Now that is true Stephanie. If we couls spin it then we could make loads of jumpers!

The Lone Beader said...

Cute cat, Jams!

jams o donnell said...

Thanks LB!
