Stinky

Hmmmm Mum your sandals are nice and stinky and are a nice place to take a nap on when you got home after work.

I needed a big nap.  Last night at 11pm when mum was heading off to bed and I raced in through the cat flap with a mouse in my jaws.  Luckily mum got  it and took it outside.  I looked and looked for it but could not find it.  Mum gave me praise for being a good hunter.  Who would have thought this old girl still had such good hunting skills?

Summer Skies

This evening was all pinks and golds.  I sat outside with mum for a while and enjoyed our warm evening.  Mum made a tasty baked fish dinner and I had a feast.  Life is good.

Can You See Me?





So a bit easier tonight.  Can you guess I like to hide?   I bet every kitty cat loves hiding.  What are your favorite spots?

Caturday Skies

 This was the sky at 1.30am.  Mum was still wide awake and she said she could have sat outside and read her book without a light as it was so bright.
 She finally got up at 8am  and decided to have a home day with me as her cough was being annoying.
The winds had picked up too and by the afternoon the clouds were dark and thick.  The promised rain didn't arrive but the winds are still whipping around. 

Good job on finding me in yesterday's photo.  That's my little hiding place in the garden.

Mum cooked a chicken fillet with potatoes and peas for dinner.  Now it's couch and relaxing time.  I've come out for treats and a quick night patrol.

Hope you're all having a great Caturday and doing something fun.

Where am I hiding today?

Day Trip







I will call these series of photos - Day Trip.  Mum got an email to say that I was due my senior check/vaccination and mum thought she would do it while she had a day off.

Turns out I had my vaccination last year so I don't need another one.  I avoided a butt shave, but got the thermometer up the you know where.

Mum came home with a new brush and comb set for me (We love the packaging), some new biscuits and tablets to try to help with my arthritis.

I spent most on time hiding under the bathmat that is in my carrier.  except when I deposited a thousand furs on the vets dark tunic.  Job done.

Nick Cave



Mum was disapointed on Sunday night to feel a cold had invaded her body again, and spent Monday in bed reading and watching shows and had a big sleep in today.  Her main stress was that she had brought a ticket to see Nick Cave and she was so looking forward to it.  She had to miss Suzanne Vega last year as she was so ill, so this was her next concert and she couldn't believe that she was sick again.  So she loaded up on lots of vitamins and drinks and could feel her body fighting it, so by 6pm she thought she might be ok, so into town she went.

It was not a straight show, it was called An Audience with Nick Cave, that was a show of songs but the audience could ask questions throughout.  Mum thought that would be a bit annoying, but actually it showed how smart, thoughtful and witty the singer was.  His singing - oh mum was amazed by his talent.  It was just him and his piano and so many beautiful songs.  Oh and she only coughed a few times, and hopefully didn't ruin anyones good time.

She felt brave too, as this is the first concert she has ever been to by herself and it was ok.  She booked a seat at the end of row so she only had to sit next to one stranger, and didn't get there too early so she didn't have to stand waiting by herself.  Well done Mum.

Passionfruit



Mum thought you might like to see how are passionfruit are growing, they are getting there and it won't be long til mum will be enjoying them.   They have even branched out onto the neighbors washing line.

Sunday Shopping - Amazing Cat Beds




Look at these fantastic cat beds I found on ETSY at  Made For Pets, made by Kate in the Ukraine.  We got her permission to show these cool places to sleep.  Somewhat better than my plastic bag bed.  Internet shopping is a fantastic thing. 

We hope you are all having a lovely Sunday and got some snoozing and or shopping done.  The only real internet shopping mum got done today was her groceries.  Ordered at 10:30am and delivered by 3pm, she got to have a tasty dinner and has lots of treats for me and for her.

Cultured Caturday







Mum was up early as her friends invited her to go to Te Papa, our national museum as there was a display of the Terracotta Warriors.  They were pretty amazing and it was one if those exhibits that made mum feel emotional as she turned into the main exhibition room where the warriors and two of their horses were standing.

Larger than life each warrior was so regal and strong looking - ready to protect their Emperor in the afterlife. 

Mum and her friends then went out for bundles of fresh sushi and mum went for a walk as the sun came out and it turned into a glorious summer's day.

Me - well I had to keep the quilt on the bed.

We hope you had a lovely Caturday and did something fun.

Film Festival


Last night's sky was pretty, but the wind has dragged in clouds and made it muggy today.

So mum decided to have a little film festival.  Yesterday she went and saw A Star is Born.  She knew the story, but didn't have any great expectations for it.  However within a few minutes of it starting she was loving it.  It was a smart story of love, if watching one star rising while the other falls apart and mum thought was done so well.  Both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were amazing, and mum loved the whole natural style of the movie.  No cheesiness or trying to be funny, just pure heart breaking drama.  5/5

Today the weather was wilder and mum was glad to be at another movie theatre.  She saw Bohemian Rhapsody which was another couple if hours of awesomeness.  The story mainly of Freddie Mercury it was a bit of a sanitized version of his life, but it did manage to capture the shy and vulnerable side if him, seen away from the public. 

The music did bring tears to mum's eyes several times, and even though some if the movie felt a bit awkward in the middle scenes, mum was impressed.  Best on a big screen with the volume up high she says it is another 5/5.

So she is back home and trolling through The Handmaids Tale season 2.  I am glad to have her home.

Shady Lady



I came and lay outside next to mum while she read her book in the sun this afternoon.  She was catching some rays and vitamin Ds.  I prefer to lie in the cool spots.

Humid Jungle

It was a hot and humid start to our week.  I spent the afternoon out in the jungle.  It is my 1-4pm sleeping spot.

Napper

Mum went and got herself out for a walk this afternoon, to get some fresh air and some groceries.  She went a shop to buy a new grill pan and came out with a new paring knife, some cutlery, 2 pillowcases and a new brush/pan set. 

When she got home she said I was very cute having my nap.  So she joined me.  Then I woke her up for my dinner.  Mum then made a chicken salad for her dinner.  Best of all there is enough for her lunch tomorrow. 

We hope you all got some good sleeps today too.

Market

Mum thinks that there may be a market for making comfy cat beds - polar fleece cosy on one side and frankly cool plastic on the other side (in better colours and designs than my bag).  What do you think??

Summers Day


You guys found me in yesterday's photos.  Mum found me out there again today.  I did come in inbetween times for a little 10 hour nap.

Today was a beautiful hot summer day.  Mum went out for a walk and met a friend for a tasty lunch.  it feels like summer has arrived .

So we thought you would like these photos of our bright sunny garden especially our northern hemisphere friends.

Dusk



At dawn and dusk pussy cats like to be outside, for a bit of socializing and watching over their properties.  Can you see the next door neighbour tabby cat?  Can you see me?  I'm only in one shot carefully hidden.

Laziness


Us girls are just chilling with some holiday laziness.  It was lovely and warm so mum cleaned the windows and pottered about.  I watched and meowed.  Job done.
