Felix catfood: Which one would you feed your kittens?

Out of the pack we bought recently, there was one pouch (on the right) which was completely empty (yet sealed), then the middle pouch was completely unbranded, which I find really bloody odd. And finally the left one is the “control”, the normal kitten food pouch.

I’ve written to Purina, and they got back to me, but I’ll be interested in seeing how they justify the unbranded pouches…

In their professional opinion, the game rates 11 out of 10. With the exception of intro scenes, which could do with some basic anti-aliasing.

Best bit? That little blue hand that moves around the screen, definitely!

Geek update of the week

Sorry if posting’s been a bit on the lean side recently, I’ve been, shall we say, rather busy. So here’s the past two weeks in summary…

  • We got kittens, we got kittens, we got kittens! I’ve been spending nearly every evening entertaining them myself while teasing them with a silly stick with a green feather at the end.
  • I went to Paris for a very interesting Mobile Monday event, where Bob presented Taptu to the French and Zazie serenaded everyone.
  • I bought an iPhone. Yup. I was at the Cambridge O2 store on launch day. There was a big queue of like… 20 of us. Not a huge hit with the plebs, but I’m absolutely in love with it.
  • I went to the Future of Mobile conference, saw the usual suspects and met some new people while seeing Powerpoint slides being blown up bigger than ever before.
  • We’ve put our house on the market and have put an offer in on a bigger house just down the road. Comes with it, some serious tidying of the house in order to make it vaguely presentable to potential buyers!
  • Did I mention I got some kittens?

Right well… Good night my lovelies!

Jack and Rose: The kittens are home safe and sound

I promised everyone photos as soon as the kittens get home. I expected to have to stick the camera in the cat box, where they’d be hiding all nervous about their new home.

Rubbish! They were chilled during the whole journey home, after about 5 minutes of meowing, then once home, they explored the entire house within a few seconds. They ate, had a wee and promptly fell asleep on their little activity centre. Now they’re pouncing up and down the stairs, playing together, taking the occasional break to purr against my leg like a little engine – so it’s time to share a few of the photos we’ve taken so far.

Couldn’t ask for sweeter kittens, they’re absolutely adorable. I’m sure I’ll find time to upload a video tomorrow, but for now, time to play!
