Firewalking For The Furries!!

I did it!
Not that there was any chance of me backing out after raising a grand total of £268 for the furries :-)

I also knitted them a kitty hat for their raffle:

Whilst I was in training, Rob took some pics of the fire being started:

And then I was off!!!

One of the best experiences ever - not just for the walk; in the grand scheme of it, the walk itself was a passing moment, even though a very awesome passing moment; what I really got something out of was the talk beforehand. I learned so much - dare I say (at the risk of sounding like I've gone all weird) I may have even learned a bit about myself!

Go on.... laugh!

Anyway, my feet were disgusting afterwards - lovely!:

And here I am with my certificate:

I couldn't recommend it highly enough, it was truly uplifting.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped me by sponsoring and geeing me on. Kat xxx

Hi Kat

Congratulations on the walk, I was the man who had to stand up and tell everyone how pathetic ( then brilliant !!)I was in the talk beforehand!! I agree with everything you say about the walk and especially the talk beforhand. I had a great time, and it was for such a great cause. PS. We had camera issues, so I'd really appreciate if you could let me know if you have any pics of me anywhere near the fire!? I went straight after you. Great blog by the way! Chris

Hey Chris, how did you find me?!

We didn't get a decent one with you in, but there is a cracking one of you on the pro photographer's website.

it's here:

There's a price list on a separate page.

I have no way of contacting you unless you happen to come back here and read this.

If you add me on facebook I can tag you in the background of one of my pics!

Glad you enjoyed it - it was so awesome!

Ok.... it's not liking the links so go to

go to "gallery" then "gem events"
then "cats open day"

That should do it!!

Thanks for the link Kat, I might even be smiling in that photo!! Shame the fire doesn’t look hotter though, might have to Photoshop that one!

I’d seen your blog before Saturday thanks to a Google search on Bridgend Cats Protection, I thought I recognised you, but didn’t fancy making a fool of myself due to mistaken identity!

I don’t have a Facebook page, but I’ll use Mrs Chris’s profile. And I’ll certainly keep reading your blog!!
