Say Hello to Bertie Blackbird

We have decided to call our friend Bertie. Bertie lives near out backyard, and he calls all the other blackbirds to the yard when mum puts the bread and fruit out for the birds.

Bertie is looking forward to the warmer weather too, especially as he doesn't have a big warm bed to sleep on like me.

I hope he has a warm feathery nest to sleep in, and a Mrs Blackbird to snuggle up to.
Mum is off having fun today, and I am watching the washing dry - hooray!!

Photo Sessions

Mum took these pictures in May, and like a lot of my photo shoots she takes a lot of pictures, as sometimes she will only get one or two when I sit still or look at the camera.

She often uses props, like this weeks artists brush to get my attention, as I like to close my eyes or look away from her. So bits of ribbon, brushes, pens, toy mousies and feather sticks can get me watching.

Because it is wintry weather outside, most of our sessions are inside ones lately. Do your photofraphers have any tricks for taking snaps of you?

Bath time

Sometimes I like to come into the bathroom and sit when my mum is in there. The empty bath is a good place to roll around in in the summertime to get cool.
Mum used to live with a cat called Squirty, that liked to sit on the side of the bath when you were in it, and walk around and get her tail all wet and soaped up.

Play time

Mum and I played with this paintbrush the other night. I was having so much fun, I got blurry, so like my friend Huffle I am showing you some of our outtakes. We like this one, I was moving so fast that mum says it made me look like a fluffy grey alien cat.
Have a fun day everybuddy.

Up North

I am looking concerned, coz all of my friends up north are complaining about the hots and the humidity. They are really sweltering.

Now we have forgotten what the hots are, although the sun did send us some beams today. Mum is not sure if they could get through the four layers she was wearing, but she might have got some vitamin Ds on her walk.

She had a good night seeing movies at the film festival, she has seen 6 movies since Friday!!

So rain and colds, you can start sneaking up north of the equator again, and send the hots our way.

Rain Break

Today there is a little rain break, so mum is getting some chores done and is going to go outside for a walk and stretch her legs. She saw 3 movies yesterday, as we have a film festival on in town, so her bottom is a bit numb.
I had a bit of a mess on me yesterday , that involved mum having to chase me around the house with the baby wipes. It also meant mum has to go around and check all my sleeping spots and wash all the covers. How embarrassing.

Saturday Plans

Mum says she has important work to do today - she has two movies to attend at the Film Festival. One at 1pm and the next at 8.30pm so she and her besties will have hours to eat and drink between.

So that means I am on house guard duty for hours by myself. So mum is rushing around and stocking up my biscuits and my water bowl.

The rain is lashing down outside, so mum says we should just stay comfy and dry inside. That's fine by me.

Lookie Likies

Mum noticed that the blackbird on the stick looked like the outdoor ornament, that we have sitting indoors in our hallway. Mr Blackbird does look tasty, but I can never catch him. We try and feed him and the sparrows though, as they get hungry at this time of year.

Come on Out

You should come outside mum, the sun is shining a little bit today, might as well enjoy it while we can.

Monday, July 19, 2010


Mum says our weeds are like triffids and want to take over the garden. We pulled a few out today and will try and do a little bit every day to stop them taking over.

Snoozy Sunday

Sunday is for snoozing here in the wintery south. Mum says this is a good photo for showing you the British shorthair furs, they are so dense, that they have crackles in them.

Have a good day, we hope you all get some relaxing time.

Kitten Cuteness

These photos are of me as a little girl, exploring my outside garden.

Today was a rainy day, so not so much outside fun. Mum went out at 10.30am to go to the hairdresser and meet friends for a movie. Me - I stayed inside and minded the bed. I made myself a bed nest, curled up and snoozed the day away.

Awwww look at how itty bitty kitty I was.

Here I am waiting on the footpath for my mum. Tonight when she got home from work, I was waiting on the front porch for her. I was looking real good and when I saw her come around the corner, I meowed and meowed at her to say hello. Then I rolled around in the gutter, and ran up the steps to show her the way to my fancy feast can.

Have a lovely weekend everybuddy.

Playing With Mums Necklace

Mum and I had fun the other night, playing with her necklace. I like to chase things.

Camo Cat

Sometimes, mum says it can be tricky to see me in the wintertime. Either I sleep on the fleecy blankie, or I burrow in underneath to keep warm.

New Cases

Your new pillow cases are very pretty mum.

Will this mean an end to the custard picnics?

Sunday, July 11, 2010


I was waiting up here for mum to come home today. Sunday was sunny but cool and mum feels like she got some vitamin Ds, had some lunch at the french cafe, went for a walk, looked at new couches and come home to me and a nice tea and DVDs.
My day - not so busy.

Saturday, July 10, 2010


Mum says she does not feed me custard, or any treats in bed very often. In fact, that might only be the fourth time!! I had a lick of the custard, but I did not eat much of it. I don't like much in the way of peoples food.

Yes - I am a princess.

Have a great weekend my loyal subjects.

Friday Night Treats

Why mum - thank you for letting me try custard in bed as a Friday Night Treat. I am one lucky grey cat.
Tonight the wind and rain are coming sideways and mum is typing on the bed beside me with her scarf on as it is a bit chilly. As you all know we are jealous of your hots, so enjoy them while you can.
Have a lovely weekend everybuddy, and we hope you all get a treat to enjoy.

Hanging Out

Mum has had two days of shift, so while she has been working, I have been just hanging out waiting for her.
