Monday Movie - Where Your Cat Goes

We thought you might like a movie to watch this Monday.  We kniw that most if our friends are indoor cats, but like most Kiwi cats i get ti have some indoor outside lifestyle living.  Mum does not think I wander far away.  Now I am getting older, like mum I am happy to stay close to home.

  The mumster has a lot of shifts in the next week so she has been food prepping like Doomsday is coming.  Our house is scented with roast chicken, potatoes, broccoli, carrots and beans.  

Towels are on the line, but the clouds are gathering again and it has grown chilly.  Mum has hovered the carpet and now relax for an hour or two before she has to ready herself for work.  It will be a strange week this week with odd shift patterns.  We guess the best thing is that there are no early starts this fortnight, and there is extra money on payday.

I am happy with the new quilt.  I have tested out both sides of it and they both work well.

Caturday

 It is Caturday again folks, although for us it is late evening and the mumster is thinking that she will head off to bed soon.  Me - well I have been on her bed for hours already.   Mum put a new quilt on the bed tonight.  It has a touch of pink and birdies on it.  I approve.

She also finally got a u shaped pillow so that when she reads in bed she is more comfortable.   She has been thinking about one for months now and finally thought why not.  She will test drive it tonight.

She had a quiet day, lunch out with a friend with a spot of shopping.  Then home to do some chores and cook some dinner.
Now us girls are chilling.   Mum has a face mask on to clear her pores and is thinking that she has time to watch something quick on TV, and then it is time for bed.

We hope you are having a great Caturday and planning something fun to do/see/eat/watch/drink/listen to !!!

Drinks

The mumster was late getting home tonight.  One of her colleagues was leaving and there were Friday night drinks.  Mum went, and like the old lady she is, had her usual lemon lime and bitters.  A couple of the boys were getting a bit messy - good on them.  Mum was the oldest there, and so retired early.  

Oh and by getting home late - she means 7.30pm.  Go mum!

Simple Suppertime

 Our friend Coral has asked for pictures of mums dinners so the mumster took these two.  This was last night's chicken breast with baked potato and salad.
Tonight mum cooked sausages with mashed potato and steamed veg.  She enjoyed both meals - me I am not interested in mums food at all.

In both cases mum cooked enough dinner to last for 2 nights.  So there is leftovers to be used tomorrown or at the weekend.   Mum doesn't that so that she only has to cook 2-3 nights a week.  Other nights she is happy with soup and toast or something easy .  She is trying to eat more veg and has cut back on her pasta/rice/bread consumption by about half in the past year.

Me - I am happy with my feast.

Betterer

I am feeling Betterer and back to normal today after my upset tummy yesterday.  I am eating and drinking as normal so mum isn't worried about me anymore.   Mum came home and talked to me and gave my furs a big brush which I enjoyed.

She made a chicken schnitzel for her dinner with salad.  It looked great but was a bit meh!!!  Don't your folks hate that!!

Sore Tummy

I woke mum up with a sore tummy.  Nothing like the sound of me being sick to get her up in a hurry.   I then wanted a cuddle.  I am OK now and have eaten my supper.  Mum has checked on me and she is not worried, but just a little sad that I am poorly.

Sunday Spot

You may be sick of photos of me on mums bed, but in reality it is where I spend 80% of my time at the moment.   We had a lovely sunny day yesterday, but got a cold rainy day today.  Mum managed to zip out between rain showers and met a bestie for the final film at the film festival.   She then went and got some supplies in.

Mum got home just  as the rain started pouring which was good as the groceries stayed dry.  She got my feast ready and then we had a nap for an hour.  Mum made some spicy chilli mince which she had with salad and wraps.

I am still in the bed keeping it warm for mum - my best job.

Sunbeam Caturday

Hello sunshine, we haven't felt 18deg c for some time, but you popped out and warmed us up today.  Mum was up with her bladder this morning again, but it was drizzly to start with, so she was slow to get the chores started.

Washing went on the line to get some vitamin d and mum opened up all of the windows and let the breezes in.  She watched a couple of shows and read some of her book.  She tried to comb me, but I didn't tolerate it for too long.

Mum got me a feast for dinner, and some leftovers for herself.  Now mum might put a face mask on and sit on the couch for an hour or two.

We hope you all have something fun planned for your Caturday.

Friday

Hello Friday - it is always a good start to the weekend when the mumster has a day off. Middle aged lady bladder prevented her sleep in - at least I didn't get the blame for that one.  Mum gave me lots of pets and cuddles, which I tolerated for a bit.  Then she went out for the day.

I got to stare out the window and watch my birdies.  They sure look tasty.

The Huntress

OK we have to confess.   Mum found the mousie behind the curtain, and thinks it may have died of fright.  Anyways she will sleep better knowing the mouse is not crawling around eating my biscuits.  Still I will take my moment of glory.

The day was nice, it cleared after a  it of rain.  Mum went walking and got some groceries.   She needed to stick up a bit.  She made chicken/broccoli Alfredo pasta and a salad, with lots of leftovers.   There are grapes for supper and now the evening is cooling down, so the heaters on and time to start relaxing.   There is a documentary about Glen Campbell on TV that she started watching, very interesting and sad.

Have you caught any wildlife lately?

Tuesdaying

Tuesday already.  The mumster has this week off for a little staycation and she is enjoying our sleep ins and relaxing.  This morning she did not have to be up until 8am, and I came and snuggled with her twice.

She saw a couple of movies at the film festival in town and had a tasty lunch out of a filo parcel with Thai chicken filling and the nicest salad mum has had in a while.   She even got to pop into the library, and read a whole small book in the 2 hours she was there.

She headed home just as the rain started, so jacket and boots are drying.  There is no sign of the mouse that I had last night so mum hopes it has truly gone.  Me well I kept our side of the bed warm.

Mouse House

Mum did make the mistake of telling someone recently that it had been a couple of years since I had caught either a mouse or a bird.  Big mistake.

So in the afternoon mum heard me race around the bedroom and then bathroom and then saw me potter into the lounge chasing a little mouse.  She shut the doors to the rest of the house,  and opened the front door.  I did spend an hour trying to find mickey mouse, and mum hopes it got away outside and is not still inside.

I mean while have eaten my dinner and gone to bed.  I am zonked after my busy afternoon.

Content


Mum was content to stay at home today with me.  It rained on and off a d the only time she left the house, was to step outside and feed the local birdies.

It was lovely for us to relax and just take it easy.

We hope that you have had a chance to relax today too.

Casual Caturday

The mumster and I had a little lie in this morning which was lovely.  The sun was shining so mum couldn't lay about too long.  Dishes had to be done and then mum bought out the vacuum cleaner- so I was off.

Mum took off in the afternoon to meet a bestie.   They had a wander and did a  little shopping and a little eating.

So now she is home - I've had my feast and is it sad to say that she is ready for bed at 9.15pm?  We hope you are having a lovely Caturday.

Kedi

The Mumster had a lovely day off, she got another sleep in and a couple of cuddles with me, then she headed off to the film festival to see this sweet film Kedi.  (if you click the link it will take you to the trailer).  It is a documentary about the street cats of Istanbul and was just delightful, following them round to see how where they eat and sleep and the people who take care of them.  There were some lovely shots over the city and amazing harbor, a place that the mumster was lucky enough to travel to over 20 years ago.  She enjoyed her holiday very much, and says the people were lovely and there were some amazing towns and beaches to visit.

She did feel a tad guilty watching the movie, as she realized that she may have left me at home without a big supply of biscuits.  Naughty mum.   So she got a bit of telling off when she got home, but at least I ate most of my dinner tonight.

Hope you are ready for the weekend - something fun planned?

Rainbow

How can it not be a nice day when it starts off with a rainbow in the neighbors garden?  Of course the mumster only got the camera in time for one budget shot- hardly any instagram winner.

Mum got to snuggle with me this morning and relax at home.  She then went and saw a couple of film festival shows.  Then a quick walk to get some exercise and a few groceries and home again.

Back

I'm back in the mumsters good books again.  We've had cuddles and conversations.   Mum had an early bird start to her day, she thinks the birds were not even up as she left home.  Best of all as she left work is the thought that she is going to give herself some time off to recharge her batteries and spend some time with me.
