Toasty Thursday

I do not like winter because it gets cold.  I like to be warm all the time.

If you know the lovely Hannah, from Hannah and Lucy’s blog, you may have seen the picture she posted on Tuesday.  She has been trying to keep warm by sleeping next to the radiator, and her mum is wondering why she does not feel too hot…Hannah’s mum should see where I like to sleep when I feel cold!  This is the radiator in our front hallway…I REALLY like to be WARM!

P.S.  My mum says she is sorry about all the bits on the carpet – right after she took this picture she disturbed me by getting the vacuum cleaner out!

Unsolved Mystery

As my friends know, we get a lot of Evil Intruder Cats visiting our garden.  Some of them come round all the time, like Leo, the ginger cat who lives next door, where I lived for a little bit when I was a kitten.  Others only come round occasionally.  Lately we have noticed a few new cats coming round.  But usually there are only one or two Evil Intruder Cats in my garden at any one time.  Some of them I play with and some of them I hiss at and chase them away.  (There is a black and white cat I HATE and whenever I see her outside the window I hiss and throw myself at the glass!…she once pushed me off the garage roof into the pond and I have not forgiven her yet!)

But I was SHOCKED when I looked out of the kitchen window early one morning this week and saw this…They are getting together!  And plotting!  Maybe they are even plotting to move into my nice comfy home where I enjoy being a Spoilt Only Cat!  Maybe they are plotting to steal my foods!  How do they know what a nice life I have?  Have they been SPYING on me?My mum says there must be a sign pointing to our house because we have so many Evil Intruder Kitties.  But I can’t find it!  All this E.I.K. activity is a mystery to me.  I am going to have to be on the alert.

P.S.  The Cat-Who-Came-Before-Me, Fat Eric, used to have a lot of trouble with the E.I.K.s too.  You would think we would have solved the mystery by now!

My Secret Paws

I wanted to show you some photos of when my Secret Paws arrived!  I made a new friend through Secret Paws this year because I got to send Secret Paws presents to some kitties I did not know before who live in Finland.  We never sent a parcel to Finland before so that was quite exciting.  The kitty I sent Secret Paws to was Punapippuri, so if you have not met him yet, please go and say hello!  He is a very handsome ginger and white mancat who looks a bit like Fat Eric.

After that it was MY turn to get a parcel from my Secret Paws, who turned out to be Kashim, Othello and Salome!  They live in Vienna so it was very exciting to get a parcel from Vienna.  The box smelt very interesting because they had scattered some loose ‘nip inside the box.  I helped to open the box.  Inside there were lots of treats including Dreamies which are one of my favourites.  Also there were some balls and some fuzzy toys.  The one I got out of the box straight away was the one we are calling The Black Furry Thing.  It smells divine!  Here I am sniffing at the Black Furry Thing.  There is some gratuitous tummy floof in this picture, I hope my special mancat Ducky does not get too overwhelmed by this!

Getting Secret Paws presents is a lot of fun.  Thank you so much, Kashim, Othello and Salome!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all my friends,

I didn’t make any resolutions for myself this year, but I made one for my mum which is that she has to let me blog AT LEAST once a week because I didn’t get to blog OR visit my friends’ blogs nearly enough in 2011.

Today it has been raining a lot so I didn’t get to go out in my garden.  My mum had to do lots of school work on the computer so I mostly stayed in the study and helped her.  I find that the maths planning is the most comfortable of her school work to sleep on.  WordPress sent me a report about my blogging in 2011.  (Proving that my mum doesn’t let me post enough!)  But it still showed I have had lots of visitors and it also told me who has left the most comments on my blog.  So I would like to thank my Top Five Visitors and I hope they are friends of yours too!

In 5th place is the lovely Sparkle!  A beauteous lady cat like me.

In 4th place are Milo and Alfie, who live in Devon just down the road from my Devon Grandma.

In 3rd place are The Island Cats, three very nice kitties who live on an island in Michigan, USA.

In 2nd place are Scooby, Shaggy and Scout, who have been blogging a very long time and were friends with Fat Eric from when he very first started blogging.

And my top visitors were…Derby and Ducky!  Ducky of course is my special handsome ginger boyfriendcat so I am very happy that he comes to visit me so often *sends purrs and nose kisses to Ducky*.

Thank you to all my lovely friends and visitors.  I really will make my mum keep her resolution of blogging more with me in 2012, and you can all help me nag her!  Heehee!

Happy Christmas!

I am having a lovely Christmas because my humans decided that this year they would not do what they normally do, which is to pack the luggage and the presents and the kitty in the car and head down to Devon or Cornwall to spend Christmas with family.  This year for the first time ever they are spending it at home in London and Devon Grandma has come to spend it with us.  Which means I get to stay home and play in my garden and NO going in the car!

Devon Grandma hasn’t seen me since I was a kitten so she is impressed that I am a grown-up young lady cat now.  My humans decided to trust me and put the Christmas tree up this year.  I was VERY interested in pulling ornaments and tinsel off it for the first few days but the novelty has worn off now, so I am mostly leaving it alone…although I can’t resist playing with that red tinsel sometimes.  

My mum put tinsel on all the pictures on the walls and I have been trying REALLY hard to jump up and pull it off but it is just a bit too high!

Last Christmas when I was a kitten we had snow, but this year it is fairly mild so I have been playing in my garden a lot too.  In fact, tonight I had worn myself out playing in the garden so much that I slept all through dinner, even though the humans were having fish pie!  I think I have been a very Good Cat this year and deserve lots of treats from Santa, don’t you?  We posted off my Secret Paws package some time ago but haven’t heard from the recipient yet that it has arrived – I really hope it gets there OK.  It is going to another country, but still in Europe.  I haven’t had my Secret Paw package yet either but hopefully when the Christmas posts have sorted themselves out I will get something eventually.   Meanwhile, do you like the lovely Christmas decorations that Zoolatry did for my blog? Look on the right hand side, there is a memory ornament for Fat Eric too!

Hope you are all having a lovely time too.  My humans and I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Easy Like Sunday – Then And Now

There is a blue chair in our living room with a plaid rug on it.   It was one of Fat Eric‘s favourite napping spots.

As you can see, it is still a favourite napping spot today – same chair, same rug, different kitty…

Yet again, sorry for the massive absence from blogging.  We’re going to try really hard to be more regular bloggers!

Meow Like A Pirate Day

Me-arrrrgggghhh!  Look at me, I’m a fierce pirate girl-kitty!  And my first piratical action will be to keel-haul my neglectful human for not letting me blog for A WHOLE MONTH!  Hissss!  (And starting a new school year is NO EXCUSE!)

I wonder if my favourite mancat Ducky would like me to join his pirate crew?

Oh no, kitties!  I’ve been having such a lovely time for the last couple of weeks, hanging out with my mum while she is on her school holidays, chasing butterflies in the garden, helping with the housework, exploring the neighbours’ gardens and snoozing in the sunshine (we’ll skip over the day I got all wet!)

But I just found out that tomorrow my humans are going on holiday to Norfolk for a week and on the way there they are going to leave me at the kitty jail!  Again!  This will be the second time this summer I have been there!

I can’t believe they would do this to me.  I am going into hiding right now!And if the hiding doesn’t work, I am teleporting over to stay with my favourite mancat, Ducky, and his bro, Derby.  See you in a week’s time!

I’m Wet!

I was having a little outing in the garden yesterday when all this HORRIBLE WET STUFF started falling out of the sky!  My mum stood at the patio windows and called me to come in, but I stood there in the middle of the lawn and mewed at her to make it stop.  But she DIDN’T!  I waited at least fifteen minutes for her to make the wet stuff stop falling out of the sky but eventually I realised she wasn’t going to!  So I came inside.  I was SOAKED!  I had to be towelled down and given lots of treats, I was very put out.  About half an hour later I wanted to go out again even though the wet stuff was still falling but she wouldn’t let me!
