GinGin pictures, starting from October 2015

As I am looking for safe and loving forever home/s for the outdoor cats, I thought I'd put together some photos of them.. It's easier to give potential new families a link to photos, rather than find them again in several folders, and upload to private chat on Facebook! 😃

These first photos of GinGin, are from October 2015. It was the first time Little Mami brought him to the patio. (Little Mami was herself a very young cat, at the time, and she is quite small, so I think, GinGin may have been the only kitten of her first litter - at least, the only one that survived..)

GinGin on his own - on top of the cat run..

These are GinGin's parents - Little Mami, and Hansom..

Then, I didn't see GinGin until months later..

This was in March 2016.. At this point, I didn't even realise it was him - I'd only seen him a few times as a kitten, and then there was no sign of him, so I feared that something had happened to him..

Here, I just thought he was a "new visitor", since he was so much bigger now..

It was only in April, I finally made the connection! I even compared the fresh photos to his kitten photos, and yes.. All markings matched

VR fun, after a little break - "day 6"

I'd been in Bray a couple of times, without actually doing any VR stuff (!!!!!), but I had some Oculus Rift fun again, on Easter Sunday 😃

D was browsing all the free content, and we both checked out the above introduction video, which was very nice. The space bits were beautiful, and I could have been on that boat for much longer - it was like travelling virtually.. (Btw, people who can't travel for real, for one reason or another, should totally have a chance of doing it in VR.. For example, people in hospitals and nursing homes..)

And then.. Face Your Fears.. OMG!!! 😵

I wasn't able to look around as much as the person on the above video - I was suffering from extreme vertigo.. LOL.. After the building part was over, I was shaking, and my pulse was racing, but it was SO COOL!!!!!!!

There was another door, which took you to a child's bedroom, where you had a menu of three books.. (I didn't find a decent video, but you'll find plenty on YouTube..) I'd already seen D experience them all, so I'd seen them on his huge TV while he was watching them with Oculus Rift, and I sort of knew what to expect.. I chose the middle book (ghost story), but even knowing what was going to happen, it was still extremely uncomfortable, and there's no way I could have watched any of them, had I been on my own.. (Like, I've no problem watching horror films on my own, I love strange Japanese horror especially, but THIS was much, MUCH worse.. LOL) I had my thumb on the button, and actually returned to home view, before the ghost story was finished.. It was just too much! (Still: SO COOL!!!)

I'd love to do a Broken Sword type VR game, with real actors and video clips.. (I just need to win the EuroMillions!)
