Moving Boxes are Fun

With just under two weeks til moving day, I am enjoying sitting in boxes. Mum is trying to stay calm and just do a bit every day and night. After the movers come, we will camp for about another week at the house, til I have to go and stay somewhere special for the holidays.
Mum says December will be exciting for us, with lots of changes. I'm just enjoying the boxes.

Summer Weekend Holiday

We hear that many of our friends up north are having snowy cold days, and thought you would like to see the sunny place mum went to at the weekend. She went to New Plymouth, a beachy surfing town about 5 hours drive north from where we live. It was super hot - summer has arrived a touch early.

She went with her besties to see this guy - Jack Johnson. His concert was awesome, he is one of the few artists mum has seen who is much better live than on CD, and she admires that he donates 100% of his concert profits to charity - yeah for him, coz really once you get really rich, there is no need to be flashy like so many celebrities. He wasn't a chatty cathy, he just got on the stage and sung and then went home.

I was meant to go to the cattery, but mum couldn't catch me - hahahaha!!!! So I gotted to stay home two nights by myself and two bowls of biscuits, mum says she hopes I didn't eat them all on the first day. I furred up her bed, and am now snuggled on the bed next to her.

Sweet dreams everybuddy!!

Friday Fit Club - And a Big Night Out

Because Gdad stayed and helped mum take a car load of stuff to the dump, she treated him to a dinner out, and then to go and see the Ukelele Ochestra of Great Britain. They were AWESOME, and both of them enjoyed the concert immensley.

Coz I have been camping outside while Gdad is here, Mum thinks it is helping with my fitness. I haven't been inside to the biscuit buffet as many times as usual, and there is lots of physical activity in avoiding peoples. Lots of running around.
Mum says she is busy over the weekend, and will catch up with everybuddy next week. We hope you all have a great weekend.

With Gdad visiting, I have been very shy and hiding outside. I sneaked in tonight, and am curled up on this spot on mums bed. Mum said I am in a deep sleep, tired from being outside all day.

Mum and Gdad went out to a show on Wednesday night. Today was Gdads birthday, so they went to the museum to see a lot of old paintings (they should have bought home the Renoir), and ate both lunch and dinner out, and went shopping.

Things have been quiet though, as the whole country is in shock at the Mining disaster here, and our thoughts go out to the families of all 29 men.

Wordless Wednesday

Wordy Wednesday

We runned out of time to post on Tuesday, as Gdad came down to help mum out with her packing. They had a good time catching up, then they went and bought some bags for mums clothes and blankets, and Gdad helped mum get in a big load of shopping. She was able to get some nice juices and breads, so that they have plenty to nibble on while they are working.

Catch up with you all soon.

Mum was home today pottering around, but I didn't want her company, I did my own thing. This is how she found me this afternoon. Asleep in my box, just touching my toy.

Sad Sunday

The cat blogosphere has tears in its eyes this weekend. We lost our sweet friend Ingio, and Patches. Ingio lived in my city with his brofur, and Rumblemum and Dad. We know that their hearts must be breaking, and they will be missing their handsome boy.

New Zealand is also holding its breath, today is the third day of 29 of our own miners being trapped after a gas explosion at a South Island mine. Our thoughts are with all their families and we hope that rescuers will be able to go in soon.

Friday Fit Club - Saturday Edition

We missed Friday Fit club yesterday, as we were so excited it was the weekend.

This week, mum has kept me on a mix of old biscuits and obesity ones, let me have the fancy feasts, and spent quite a bit of time playing with me. She is also trying to cut down on my secret snacks - temptations, now I am only allowed two at a time.

Mum has bought herself lots of fresh fruits and veg at the market. At work, she buys a ham/egg/salad sandwich on wholemeal/grain bread, and a piece of fruit and has cut out buying any biscuits or fruit juices. She fills her water bottle and drinks that all day.

** My vet told me I had to lose 0.5 kg by April, which is in six months time and is a 10% loss. So mum is joining me, and trying to make healthy choices too!!

Have a nice weekend everybody.

It's the weeeeeeeeeeeeeekend - yipeee!! Mum has some extra days off in the next week to organise her packing. Our stuff goes into storage in about three weeks, and I off to go off to fat camp on the 18th of December, while we wait for our new place to be ready.

Have a great weekend everybuddy.

Thursday, November 18, 2010


We're busy busy at home, with mum trying to pack, although she feels like she is just moving piles of stuff around and around the house. Moving house is hard!! As you can see, I am busy helping her by checking out the garden.

Toasty warm

At the weekend, mum decided to move the winter duvet off the bed. Of course that means it got real cold, and last night she had to put some quilts back on, so I snuggled on the bed with my butt being toasty warm.
Hope you all had a warm and cosy spot to sleep in last night and tonight.

Monday, November 15, 2010


Mum joined me in being lazy tonight. She is meant to be packing stuff, but decided to sit on the couch instead, while I went and crashed out on her bed. Can you see me in this picture? Look closely!!

Sunday, November 14, 2010


I is helping my mum chose which linen goes on the bed today. It was sunny, then cloudy, hot then cool today. Mum sorted out two cupboards and filled up the wheelie bins with rubbish, cooked tea, watched mad men and is now on call til 8am Monday morning.

We hope you had a great weekend and got lots of chores/relaxing done.


Saturday, November 13, 2010


Saturday is our day for chilling out, sleep in, washing, bagels with friends, and then mum did a bit of shopping for stuff for when we move. I just chilled out at home.

Friday Fit Club

My vet has told me I has to lose 10% of my body weight by April 2011, so mum has decided to join me.
This week our goal has been to move a bit more, and eat a bit less.
Poppy Q - Mum has dug out some of my tools including my piece of green ribbon, and is making more play time, she tries to chase me around the garden a few times a day too. I have also had a couple of meals of my obesity biscuits, but I still don't like them.
Mum Q - Mum has made plans to make her lunch for work each day, and is making an effort to buy more fruit and veg and less treats.
She is also trying to head out for more walks now the weather is better.
Gentle steps are the best way forward.

Now that spring has finally arrived, lots of sunbeams come through our windows. I like to lie in them next to my scratcher , where I can touch and smell it's catnippy goodness.

Toesie Tuesday

With a tail thrown in for good measure.

Hope you all got up and danced today, did some toe tapping, jumped for joy or just took a good walk.

Monday, November 8, 2010


Coz I sent mum off to work early, I have been following her around tonight and been quite talkative. Telling her to get my fancy feast, give me some of the chicken she was chopping up and give me some temptations.

Sunday, November 7, 2010


Oh noes, mums staycation is over, and she has to get up at early o'clock tomorrow and get ready for work. That means that I has to be back on guard duty at the house and I'm in charge again.

Saturday, November 6, 2010


Yesterday was a perfect day for Jungling, it was sunny + hot - two things we have seldom had together. Of course it was that way because a big cold weather front was blasting it's way northwards up our island. Still mum aired out the house with the blustery winds, put the stereo on loud and made some lemon chicken risotto before collapsing on the couch.

Today, it has been grey and cool, mum ventured out and got rained on, but has lots of fruits and veges and the weekend paper, so she is going to knuckle down and get some chores done. Me, I'm snoozing the day away and taking it slow.

Friday Fit Club

Thanks for all the comments about my svelte figure, it sure was nice of you all. As you can see I am not Harry Houdini, I was trapped in my PTU.
However, the vet was just reminding me that I should be 5.5 kg, not 6 and we thought that 6 months to drop 10% was a good goal.
Mum says thanks to the mums who thought they might join in with her, too. She is too much of a lady to talk about her or anyones weight on here, but she has come up with a plan.
She has pulled out the scales and measured up. Every Friday will be time for Fit Club, and she will tell you if the scales have gone down, and pass on any tips or words of wisdom. The goal is to drop 10% by April. That's six months and totally doable.
So in honour of starting, she is going to head out into the sunshines and go for a walk!
Have a lovely weekend everybuddy!!

Our nicest vet, Dr Natalie looked after me when I went to the V-E-T on Tuesday. She said I was a bit F-A-T, and have to have these biscuits with the lovely name (see yesterdays post). I have 6 months to lose 10% of my weight, before I has to go back for my biggest loser weigh in.
The good news is that I am allowed to carry on eating Fancy Feast (as it is 80% water), but I have to have my new biscuits, on Tuesday night I ate the biscuits and liked them.
Wednesday and Today - I don't like them so much.
At the end of the visit, mum laughed coz I runned into my cat carrier, ready for the ride home.
So mum says she is going to join me, and she is going to lose 10% by the end of April too!!

Tuesday, November 2, 2010


I love playing in boxes, and we have had a few around our house. You see, mum and I are going to move house. Not til later in the year, but this might mean we will have to take a blogging break for a while, and it means we might not be around much while we are busy sorting out stuff.

Sunny Staycation

Yippee - today we had sunshines on our staycation, and mum got no pictures. We had visitors this morning, so I hid under the house, then I came back in when they went. Mum went out for lunch, came home for a half hour, and then went out to tea. So I snubbed her tonight!!

The forecast is for sunshines for the next two days, so we are going to enjoy it!!
