I have revised one of our favourite discoveries Meandering Numps for 2024. Numps has not blogged for several years but the blog posts are full of wit and charm so I am reluctant to remove this post. I have re-written the introduction out of affection for a blogger and his cat.. If you want to know how to touch the heart of yur readers, browse some of Numps delightful posts.
Although Numps is based in Bulgaria she is a keen supporter of British rescue Keighley Cat Care. Please drop in there if you have a moment, they are good people, they are also on Facebook so some Likes might be nice!

Where in the world are you Numps?
Not exactly sure. Hooman showed me on a map once, and it is on a bit of green next to a bit of blue. I looked out of the garden, and there are several trees, a stork on a pole, and a hill I went up once. Hooman said it is called ‘Bulgaria’, and it is named after Great Uncle Bulgaria, a famous character from a show called ‘The Wombles’. (see pic)

What is the favourite part of creating your blog?
Well, apart from going back through hooman’s pics and reliving those memories, it is nice to interact with people who get in touch, either on the blog or on Twitter. I like having fun with people, and when they come for a chat! Most of the time they tag team against my hooman, mostly because he deserves the grief.
What kind of readership have you discovered enjoys your blog?
Well, the people who risk life and limb and approach me, (I am a furocious predator, remember), they seem to come from all walks of life. Men, women, young, old. You can always tell the crazy cat people though. They are great. I get the feeling they would give me ham and tickles for free in real life. My hooman rations it, and makes me work for it.
What are the joys and challenges of being a worldwide blogger?
Not sure really… I never started my little blog for any reason other than to have a go, because why not? It wasn’t started with a goal in mind or anything like that. It is nice to see people from all over the world popping in for a look, and I talk to people all over the world on Twitter. As for challenges, I don’t think there are any. I do what I like and take what comes, (because I’m a cat, and always right)

Dogs feature a lot in your life, what are they like to live with?
Dogs are easy. I live with one, The Wally, who was here when I first decided to live at Hooman’s house, (he obviously had no say in the matter), and from the start, it was a bit weird. I was taught to run from dogs, as they can be a little bit exuberant when it comes to putting cats in their mouths, but The Wally was easy to tame.
He is now my best mate, (don’t tell him that though, he would never shut up about it), and we sleep and play together all the time. Hooman has other dogs every now and then, but I have managed to tame most of them so that I retain my Apex predator title.
