Check out my head in action - no mum, no more pictures!!
You could do the reverse full monty in the bath - just take out the water first. Of course old dribbly bath water is good to drink.
Keep cool my little hot humid fur friends. Sending you cool breezes from the southern hemisphere.

So My Friday Friend for this week is: a couple of rascals that I started reading about ages ago. They were one of the first cat blogs that caught my attention. Through reading about Beau & Angie and darling Millie, I was able to discover all of my new fur friends. So these are very important pussycats to me.
Beau giving Angie a bath - she looks like she is enjoying it!!! What a nice brother!!
Angie and Beau Beau
Angie would like you to know, that she is the beautiful floofy girl cat on the left of these pictures. Beau beau is the short haired fellow, who managed to look slightly surprised in both of these pictures. Me and my mum think they are both super cute and very funny!!
Angie and Beau have had an exciting year. Their mummy and daddy got married this year!! Good on you mum and dad!! Their awesome mum and dad went to look for a kittie at the animal shelter. They found Beau Beau first. He got to run around wild at home and was tiring his beans out ,so they had to look for another cat to keep him out of mischief. Luckily they found the beautiful Angie - isn't she sweet? They now all live together in Connecticut in the US.
You can find them at their blog: http://swicks.blogspot.com/
You guys are awesome!!

Miss Daisy asked if I was a soft pussycat.
Miss Daisy I am supersoft. My fur is all squishy and cuddly and like all British Shorthair cats it looks a bit crinkly, especially when I lie down. Mum even thinks I smell good and she likes to give me kisses - silly bean.
I am soft like the softest snuggly micro-fleece blanket that you would wrap your babybeans in.
Thanks to all of my clever friends entering the competition. You don't need to guess a date for when the post will be!!! Just leave me your name in the comments section and consider yourselves entered. Monty Q thinks he should be able to enter his baby bean. He also tells me that there are 234 cats living at his house. Boy your mum and dad must be broke from buying you all food Monty Q! Furry kisses to you all.
Ps we found this great article on CNN about Oscar the cat. Oscar lives in a rest home, in the US, and he goes and visits with the folks there before they die. Oscar makes his rounds and his instincts tell him if the patients life is ending. He curls up beside them for a cuddle, and his behaviour alerts the nurses to let the families know that they should come to say goodbye. Good job Oscar - everyone should have a great cat like you to cuddle with when they die.
This is Oscar.

This is my friend Parker. Parker always reads my blog and puts in lots of nice amusing comments. My mum apologizes as we read her blog, and have tried to comment lately but we seem to not be able to. It must be mum - she is always having trouple with the computer. Me not so much trouble. You can find Parkers blog at :
It is pretty perfect too!!
Parker is a super girl cat who lives with her beans and sisters Puff and Powder, brother Rudy (who seems to bite Parker a lot!!) and a woofie called Diamond. The whole Parker family are moving to Ohio, to a very cute house. I think their new house looks like a castle!! They are moving in 11 days. We hope it is not too long a trip. Also I hope their computer is the first thing moved into the house, and they can tell us they are safely in their new home.
I love you Parker!!! You are a good friend to me.
This picture is for the pussy cats to dream about - them are all gecko footsies!! My mum first found this picture on CNN and then found it on this website: www.nsf.gov/news/mmg/mmg_disp.cfm?med_id=5962...

I had fun visiting the family, but I did miss you too. I was glad the nice people at the cattery were able to look after you. I chose that cattery as it is at the vets that we go to. So if anything was to happen to you, they would be able to sort you out. They also have a garden that you can play in, rather than being locked up all day.

Meme from Parker - thanks Parker!
What were you doing 10 years ago?
I am not even a year old - so I don't know.
What were you doing a year ago?
See above answer.
5 snacks you enjoy.
Friskees, custard (yummy), luncheon meat, ham and moths.
5 Songs you know all the words to.
Mum knows most of the words to lots of songs and will sing them to me, but not in public. Her favourite songs this week from her ipod are, (she is not sure she knows all the words to all of them):
Waiting on the world to change (John Mayer), How to save a life (the fray), Gone Going (Jack Johnson), Hurt (Johnny Cash) and Chasing Cars (snow patrol).
Buy me and my mummy a house, send mum on holiday somewhere warm, sponser some cages at the SPCA to look after cats, buy mum a shop where I can go and sleep in every day and look after my family.
5 bad habits.
Mum tells me I am a very well behaved kitten, but I do occasionally like to scratch the curtains, bite mums toes when they in the bed, runaway when she is trying to pat me, miow while she has her shower and pull the phone cords so the phone falls down (not my fault the catnip mouse ran in their to hide from me!!!).
5 things I enjoy doing.
Sleeeeeeeeeeeeeping. Especially now it is really cold. I spend all night snuggled up next to my mum.
Patrolling - got to check around the house a couple of times every evening and morning. When it is summer I sometimes stay out really late.
Sitting in the bath - it is so nice and cool in the summer to sit in the empty bath.
Eating treats - I eat friskees treats sitting on my mums knee.
Chasing things - mousies, moths and any thing that runs around and could fit in my mouth.
5 things I will never wear again.
I am a cat - I don't wear anything except my collar.
5 Favourite toys.
Scarf, feather stick (green, blue and pink ones), catnip mouse, teddy bear and ballpoint pens.
We have to pass the meme on - we choose the famous five + 1. They can answer all together.

Today is stay at home Sunday. That means mum promises to stay right here. No going out anywhere, no stinky hair stuff, no funny makeup and no fancy clothes for her. She has her slippers on and her comfiest clothes. Of course that means that as soon as I have finished sleeping, I will disapear off on patrol.
Now todays post is sent as a humble apology to my friend Minx. You see minx tagged me ages ago for some confessions, but his human hadn't taught him to send me a note. and tell me. So I didn't know. So I am sorry it is six weeks too late but I hope you like it anyway!!.
Hi Minx, You sure are a pretty colour!! You can find Minxs adventures at http://allaboutmme3.blogspot.com/ It tells the story of three kiwi kitties. Kiwis are New Zealands national bird. They are very rare and only come out at night. We would be in big trouble if we caught one of them. Mum would have to hide the evidence, but the CSI people would track us down.
When I was little and still used the litter box my mum called me stinky butt!! Not fair I say!
When I come inside I always call out and see if my mum is home.
I am incapable of finding my food bowl in the morning. I have to make my mum show me where it is every morning. Even if it still has food in it.
I know you bought those expensive biscuits for me mum from the SPCA - really I like the supermarket ones better.
Mum is sitting on the bed writing this - I am snuggled up purring behind her back.
I hope every cat and human gets to have a nice relaxing Sunday.
Ps: A little about kiwi birds.
The kiwi bird is an endangered native bird, with only about 50,000 known. They are usually about 3.3 kg and live in the bush. They are usually nocturnal (coming out at night), and often live as pairs usually mating for life (sometimes for thirty years). The female lays only one egg at a time (they are huge too), and then the male incubates them.
Because New Zealand is a couple of islands, the kiwis were safe until the settlers arrived and bought rats, stoats and cats with them. Unfortunately they wouldn't play nice, and ate lots of kiwi birds.
If you cats ever find a kiwi bird - you should leave it alone and let it go home.
You can go here to learn about kiwis:
New Zealanders (that is me and my mum) are called kiwis because it was a nickname the Australian soldiers called the New Zealand soldiers in the first world war. Together the Aussie and kiwi soldiers are called ANZACS.
My mum loves kiwifruit too!!
