Finally Friday

It is finally Friday and mum and I got to relax today with the beginning of a little staycation.  Us girls got a sleep in and mum just relaxed today spending time with me.  Of course she could not get a long sleep in as I got a bit worried that she was not getting up in time this morning and meowed and meowed at her til she got out of bed.  I am good like that.

She went for a nap this afternoon and I also came in to remind her that it was my dinner time and she better not forget.  So tea is done and I am back to napping again.

I hope you had a good Friday and are ready for the weekend.  It is a public holiday here on Monday, so we are lucky to have a few days off and chill out.

This is one of the neighbor cats that lives a couple of houses close to us.  We see him/her round all the time but like me is real shy and doesn't come to close and runs away if mum gets close.  Me and my mum were out in the garden doing stuff, when mum felt like we were being watched.

When mum was a girl her family had a black cat Andy cat who was awesome.  Mum is ashamed though that her father made the cat go out at night.  As in at 9pm as the family headed to bed the cat was put outside to fend for itself.  Expected to sleep in the garden or garage, it may seem mean but in 1970s most NZ families would have done the same thing.  Cats and Dogs would not have slept in the house.  Mum sure is glad that times have changed as she knows how happy I am to be able to share her warm bed and night and to be able to snuggle up with her.

Hope you all have somebuddy warm to snuggle up with tonight.

Morning Skies

There was a tinge of pink to the skies this morning as mum was up early to head off to work.  She didn't wake me up - too early for a middle aged pussy cat.  Mum is then on call tonight so she had to come home and have a nap so that she got some sleep in the sleep bank.

After all the birthday celebrations I have just spent the past few days just chilling out.  Sleeping positions are changing, I have occasionally left my laundry basket and climbed onto mums bed and on the rug.  I am lucky to have so many cozy spots to sleep in.

Mum had herself a steady day at work today and has got herself some nice lamb and vegetables for her dinner.  I had myself a feast so I am full and ready for my evening snoozing. After a couple of days of sunshine with the doors open, the clouds are gathering again, and rain looks likely.  Spring weather is truly upon us.

Hope your week has begun well and you guys are having fun.

Itty Bitty Kitty

 One of our friends asked us how long me and mum have been together.  Well mum was lucky as she got me as a little 8 week old baby back in 2006.  This is my first night at home with her on the 30th of December 2006.  Mum had grown up as a girl always having pussy cats round the home.  The first cat she got to have that was all of her own as a grown up was the lovely Puss.  Puss just wandered into her house in about 2000 and stayed.  But she got old and sick and mum was terribly sad after she passed.

She had always dreamed of a little grey cat and it was her first and only experience of going to a breeder.  The breeder was reputable, she was a vet nurse and took good care of her cats, and mum was so happy to be able to choose me.  All the other cats in mums life have been shelter cats and she has always loved them, but she knew what her heart needed and it was me!

 I settled in straight away and we have had a good ten years together.  Mum and I have lived in 3 houses together and although there is always a bit of drama and trauma moving, the important thing is that we are able to be together.
 We hope you like all of these photos - all from our first couple of months together when I was an itty bitty kitty.
Now I am a big 10 years old and mum and I are still happy together.

Caturday Meat Cake

 For Pussy Cat birthday cake - Take these two fine ingredients.  Put the feast on the plate and pile high with party mix.
Have your mum put your bowl on the floor and sing happy birthday to you.  Run away out the cat door and hide.  Cos you are a cat and can't cope with change, even if they are treats.  Come back in after 10 minutes and precede to eat as normal!!!

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes - you guys are all so kind to think of me.  Mum got home and gave me a few kisses on the top of my head and tried to give me a cuddle.  I ignored her all night and slept in the laundry basket.  Once she had gone to bed I rushed in and slept on her bed for an hour or so as it was a chilly night.  Today has been relaxing, mum got to go and visit a bestie and now is home again with me for a little lady night in.

Hope you have got to do something fun today on your Caturday.

Sunny Day

Today is super sunny, so mum got a load of washing up on the line to soak up the sunshine and fresh breezes.  I joined her outside, but as soon as she came inside I followed her and am now curled up in the laundry basket.  Of course mum is unable to use the basket to take the washing to and from the line as it is in use.  She is nice and let me have a towel in it to snuggle up in and I spend most of my days and nights in here.

Sleepy Sorry

Mum did mean to post last night, she did mean to help me.  However the need for napping overtook her.  After her weekend of call and not so much sleep, the sleepiness meant that she felt the need to lie down at 6pm and was fast asleep for the evening.  She finally ventured up at midnight for a snack and now is watching the Great British Bake Off which is making her more hungry.  Luckily she can sleep in the next few days, so she can get back to normal sleeping next week.

So time for me to snooze now too.  The only issue is where to sleep?  Box or laundry basket?

Look how sharp my claws are!!!  Mum laughed when she got this photo.  Actually she was tickling my paws and it made my claws come out.  I like to think it was me being a big brave girl and showing you my nails!!

Mum got to sleep in bed overnight without going to work, but it was a bit of a restless night.  When you are on call you always toss and turn without getting proper rest.  Tonight though she intends to snooze the night away!!  First she better got and do the dishes and tidy up.  A mumsters work is never done.

Me - I am snoozing in my laundry basket again.  Life is good.

What do you mean you only got 2 hours sleep last night?  You had to go to work in the middle of the night?  Then when you got home you started to tidy up some stuff and made a real mess.  Then the exhaustion struck so you climbed into bed at midday for a snooze.  You had just closed your eyes when you got woken up, as your sweet niece was passing by and bought you a parcel of stuff.

So now you is awake and have to clean up the mess you made and be back on call tonight.  Good job mum.  You should be a cat - much easier!!

Curious Caturday

When mum got this parcel during the week I had to help her inspect it.  Round and round I went sniffing the corners and giving it a rub.  It had come half way round the world, so it was full of lovely smells, so I have spent the past three days sleeping in it.

The mumster is on call this weekend, so she was glad to get a bit of sleep overnight, and get up at a reasonable hour.   She got some washing done, a bit of tidying up done and made the bed, all necessary chores.  She stuck close to home so that she did not spend any money which was good for the budget, although she may have to venture to the supermarket tomorrow for some essentials.  It was nice for us girls to relax together.  She did give me a good half hour of playing with my feather toy before I collapsed in exhaustion and went to sleep in the laundry basket!

We hope you did something fun today and got some relaxing done too!!  Enjoy your Caturday!!

Yesterday after work mum took some pictures of the pretty sky.  There is a special type of summer blue that is returning to our little islands, that we have missed the past few months.  Of course the clouds gathered and closed in with lots of rain pouring down overnight.  We look forward to more blue sky days.

Duvet Love

I love mums duvet - I beg her to pull back the covers and let me lie on it.  Mum is thinking that she needs to go and lie down soon and pull up the covers and read her book for a while.  Forgive the wrinkly unmade bed.  She got up this morning to have a shower and I jumped onto her spot, so she had to wait for me to have my nap before she could smooth things out.

Mediocre Monday

Mum says that it was one of those Mondays, which she knew from the minutes she woke up.  The alarm went off at 6.20am and she rolled over and woke up at 7.20am.  So no time to get her hair fixed, just a quick shower, change and off.   It felt like a long day but finally when it was over she got to head home and relax.  The sun was shining, but before she knew it the fog started rolling in, so time to shut the doors and windows and turn the heater on.

She made herself a nice big salad for dinner and cooked a nice piece of fish, which immediately flaked and turned messy, so mum had to eat it in tiny pieces.  It did taste nice though, which she thought made up for how ugly it looked.

So now us girls are relaxing, and making a mediocre day end on a better way than it started.

Today was a calm day for us ladies.  The morning bought rain, and the clouds parted in the afternoon giving us a touch of sunshine.  Mum whizzed up a couple of loads of washing, and although it was outside in the breeze it was not warm enough to dry it all, so now it is drying on our rack in the living room.

Mums sleeping was a bit rough again, so she chose to stay in bed this morning and read and relax for the afternoon and this evening feels better for it.  We hope you had some calm today - some downtime to refuel yourselves.
