Dora The Explorer

Meet Dora.  As in Dora the Explorer.  She also answers to Dotty, Little Dorrit and Doris.  (Well, she answers to pretty much anything at the moment, to be honest!)

She is a very good kitten so far.  She was left downstairs with some toys and her bed, food, etc, last night.  This morning I woke up fairly early, opened the bedroom door and she was sleeping on the floor outside our bedroom door.  I woke her up and offered her some breakfast and got a very loud PURR PURR PURR all the way downstairs to the food bowls.

After breakfast she went back upstairs and found out that John was still in bed (Sunday lie-in!) and that yes, she could manage to climb up the side of the bed.  Then she did some mountaineering all over the duvet.

After a hard morning’s playing Dora slept the sleep of an exhausted kitten nearly all afternoon until her tummy told her it was food time again.  Meals are extremely important to her.  This evening she’s been having an attack of the crazies, zooming all over the ground floor and playing with a jingly ball, a feather stick and a pink mouse.  The pink mouse has already lost an ear from hard playing.

Anyway, everyone just wants to see more kitten photos, right?


  1. Oh she is such a cutie!!! Isn’t she a lucky girl!

  2. SQUUEEEEEEE!!!!! Love Dora kit with the fevvers!

  3. Ah, we see she has a name now! And very appropriate! Such a doll she is, she’ll keep everyone on their toes, we’re quite sure! 🙂

    Welcome to the Cat Blogosphere, Dora!

  4. Hi Dora! I’ve had the cat crazies all weekend, too! My mom says it’s because it’s autumn now. I’m 4, so I don’t have the excuse of being a cute kitten like you do!


    • What, you mean she’ll still be doing it when she’s 4???!!!

      • I was shocked – I had only had senior cats for so long, I was used to a fairly mellow house. I never thought this 4 year old would have so much energy! 🙂

  5. Hello Dora! Have fun playing, napping, eating. Sorry they kept you out of the sleepy spot, that is the most fun of snoozing with your beans.

  6. Hi Dora, you are a good girl to sleep outside the bedroom door to protect your new Beans from monsters. Tell your mum I still get the crazies on a daily basis and I’m 10!

  7. Way to go Dora, that name is totally you…welcome to our world and your new home sweetie pie!

  18. Aaah Dora it is! Hello again Dora, it’s lovely to see you playing and so happy in your new home. You do realise that your new humans are already trained in providing all a cat could need, so you won’t have to work too hard. Very glad you have claimed the large human bed, it’s always best to get ownership of the bed sorted out early in ones career!

    Our ape is squeeing at your pictures – ohh my poor ears!

  19. Dora you’re are so cute – we’re glad you own the big bed upstairs now – it’s so important early on to put your furs on everything you want to claim as yours.
    We think you’ve made a great start getting your mum and dad organised but don’t get fooled – you need to keep them on their toes or they let things slide!!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
