This morning I snoopervised mum doing the garden.  She mowed the lawns and picked up all the big leaves that got blown down in the winds we have had this past week.  Washing is on, and the dishwasher is getting cleared.  She might stop by the supermarket for supplies.  All before an afternoon shift.

Thanks for all the scratching advice.  I seem to have stopped now.  I have lots of places that I am allowed to scratch.  However mum has never let me scratch the furniture and in the past five years I have never touched the couches at all.  It must have been a cat in prison who taught me bad habits.  You never know who you are going to get locked up with.

Mums Weekend

 Mum got to see a bit of sunshine, and have a picnic lunch by the beach.
She got to hang out with the niece and nephew, who are now taller than her and still growing. 

So far today mum hasn't caught me scratching the couches, and she will growl if I do.  I am allowed to sharpen my claws on the trees and deck outside, not the furniture.

Hot Skies

Mum and I are back.  I had to go to the cat hotel for four whole days of slimming biscuits, and have come home with a new habit - scratching the couch.  Mum is gonna put a stop to that.

Mum went to visit her family - Gdad turned 70 and so the family had a night out together at a lovely Thai restaurant.  This was the fab sunset that greeted us as they left, it looked amazing.

So we are glad to be home together, even though it is cold and windy here.  Brrrrrr !!!!

We look forward to catching with all of our friends.

Days Off

Kittens, Mum and I are having a few days off  as we have got lots to do.  Don't fear, we'll be posting again on Monday.  As you can see I am very helpful when mum does the laundry, and many other household jobs.

See you soon.

Noo Spot

 Ssssh - mum is sitting on the other couch and I snuck past her and curled up on the new couch.  I have never rested here before, and mum is enjoying my company.

Mum says it is nice to see me in the lounge, although she has just seen that I now have a claw lodged in the side of the couch.  Maybe she is not as happy as she was.

Neighbour Cat

Mr Neighbour cat - how comes you so skinny when I know you sneaks in thru my cat door, and eats my leftovers?   We know you has a nice house across the road from us, so we know you get lots of dinner at your house - you must just love the feast.

Run Around

Mum has run around all weekend, so now we are just chilling for Sunday night.  Mum likes to watch The Middle, and have an earlish night on Sunday.  I got her to give me my feast early at 5pm, and have retired to the bedroom, so I can get in my 14 hour night sleep.

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday.

My trouser pants(behind) has got a bit floofy with a few dags - if you know what I mean.  Mum chased me with some toilet paper last night, and as she went to grab me I jumped and she bumped her hand into her left eye.  So she had a little bruise overnight, that looks a little like a black eye.  Revenge I say.

Maybe if I rub the tv console maybe it will give me treats.

Have a great weekend everybuddy.

Cat Grass

Hmmmm - tasty.  My cat grass is still growing and I nibble on it every now and then, although I do like to eat the weeds too.

Birdie Watching

It rained again last night, so the birdies were very noisy this morning looking for bugs and worms.  So I spent a little bit of time hoping one would fall off the roof.  No such luck.  So back to bed for a while.

Mum has to work this weekend, so we might have to catch up with you all on Monday.  I'm in charge of keeping the duvet on the bed, and having a snoozathon.

Outside Post

These were taken yesterday, as today we have a drizzly morning.  So mum and I didn't feel guilty about lazing around in bed til 9am.  I did have to go in and tell her that it was raining, and that my biscuit bowl was getting empty.  A cats job is never done.

Sumtimes I just sit at the end of the path and watch the going ons in the street.  I don't like to spend too long out on the street, I usually head out the back or head into the house.  Our street isn't too bad, and there aren't many stray dogs around so it is pretty safe.  I'm a pretty fast runner, and if a car or person comes I run away quickly and I know all the safe spots.

Belated Mum Presents

 Two weeks ago it was my mums birthday and usually I present her with a jewellery present.  She is sorry about the delay in showing what I chose, but she has been sick and the camera was broke.  Anyways now we have pictures I can show you what I chose.  Above is a little brooch to go on her jacket.  It is from a kiwi couple of girls called 'Smash Palace'  - they use old china cups and plates to make brooches, rings and earrings.  After the Christchurch earthquake, they went down south and helped ladies at a workshop there make momentos out of all the broken china, which was a real nice thing to do.
I also got her this little bud vase, to put by her bedside table.  There are new blooms out in the garden now and us ladies like flowers.

Out Takes

That nice photo from yesterday, well it was just one of a few good close ups that mum got from inside, through the glass door with the zoom lens.  This shows you what most of my photos look like, closed eyes or looking away.

Today we had touches of sunshine and real warmth.  Mum was feeling a bit under the weather so she took it easy, and I helped her with gardening when she was feeling better.

Hope you all had a lovely Sunday.

Photo Fixer

Mum realised tonight, one week after the beginning of photo troubles that there was a little slot in her laptop, and low and behold if she put her memory card in there, the puter would read it.  Lucky she did - cos there were some good shots of me that she took last week.  Don't my eyes look pretty like amber?

Weekend Safety

It is Guy Fawkes here on Saturday night, where everybody lights their crackers and goes crazy.  Our neighbours have been letting some off tonight, but I haven't been too freaked out, but we will be glad when the weekends festivites are over.  The good thing is that our council has a great big free show in town for families which is great.

Oh - and last night our front door got knocked on at 9.45pm.  Mum didn't even think, but got up and answered it.  As soon as mum answered the man, who was nicely dressed said that he had the wrong address.  Mum did ask him who he was looking for (our street is little and only has 16 houses on it), and he said "The Asian Palace", and mum said she didn't know where that was, so he headed off.  Mum thinks that he was either looking for his dinner - or some ladies of poor reputation.  We hope he was just out for a curry!!!1  Usually she wouldn't open the door at such a late time, but it happens so rarely she didn't think about it.

Hope you all have a good and safe weekend !!

Things are calm around here.  Mum is resting and watching lots of repeats on tv and reading her books, nothing too taxing.  I am outside, checking on our parsley and corriander.  Alas the oregano didn't want to grow in our backyard.  Everything is looking pretty and green, as we have had lots of rain, and now some touches of sun.

Hard Out Horizontal

Mum has been hard out horizontal.  Bed-Couch-Bed  with a box of tissues and a large glass of juice following her.  I spent all morning with her, but in the afternoon the gardener man came for a clean up, so I hid under the deck, as any good cat guard would. 

Last night, mum and watched our mr hedgehog explore the garden.  We couldn't get any photos, as he was too fast.  We wonder what he will think, now his garden has been trimmed up.
