Caturday Apology

I is sorry Mum for having a super stinky bum this morning mum.  I is sorry for smearing it all over your favorite shopping bag.  I am sorry for trying to run away as you tried to clean me up.

I hope I made your Caturday special Mum.

Here we are ready for the weekend.   So far there appears to have been no intruders here today.  The mumster was glad that her working  week was over.  She celebrated by going to the supermarket on the way home - woop woop!

Dinner was a feast for me, and she made chicken/cranberry/cheese toasties for herself.  All those carbs made mum tired so us girls retreated for a nap.  Then mum thought she would finish her chores.  So clothes are being washed and the dishes are done.  Vacuum cleaning can be done tomorrow morning and now is time to load up another Poldark episode. 

We hope you are all having a good Friday too.

It is not neighborly to:

  • Be the 2nd kitty cat that mum has found in our house today.
  • Hide under the spare bedroom in said house
  • Hiss at the mumster when discovered.
  • Growl at the mumster when she tried to chase you out.
Mum did get the naughty neighbor out from the spare bedroom with a combination of the broom and some sprays of bug spray.  No sign of neighbor cats tonight.

Tail Tuesday

 Hello lovelies.   Thankfully the wind has wound down a bit, after two nights if little sleep for the mumster.  It still looks somewhat stormy grey outside, but it is warm.  Mum thinks I have spent the day inside while she worked, but I was rather happy to see her when she returned home.
She had an easy dinner.  She put some oven fries on, microwaved some frozen green vegetables and had a rotisserie chicken.   She said it was rather nice.   There is also another portion dished out for tomorrow nights dinner.  The leftover chicken will be shredded and ready for sandwiches for lunch for the rest of the week.  We hope you don't mind the dinner snaps, but our good friend Coral asked for some as a special request.

Me - well mum dished me out my feast and now I am in a feast coma on her bed.

It is a bit windy out there.  Mum told me that I better stay inside in case I got blown away.  She is OK- she has enough ballast to keep her safe.

Soft Kitty

It is a quiet day at our house.  Mum pottered about this morning and now is reading her book, but has to get ready for work soon.  So time for a nap- zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Saturday, September 23, 2017


Mum had a good sleep last night after her busy day and in fact it might have been the best sleep this month.  Miss Belle and her didn't do much until going out for lunch.  Miss Belle was off to stay with a friend this afternoon so mum just went and swapped some books at the library and got some groceries and came home.

Tastiest for tea was easy for her and a quiet night in for us girls.  She gave her niece a door key in case she wants to sneak home early.

Hope your Caturday has been nice too.

Fun Friday

Mum has had a fun Friday today.  Her niece, the lovely miss Belle has come for a visit.   The girls chilled out this morning and headed into town for lunch.

They went to Gdads favorite dumpling restaurant for a  nice lunch.  Then they walked the city looking at shops.  They stopped into another restaurant for chicken satay and a drink.  Then they went and saw IT at the cinema.   They stopped and got fancy chips for supper on the walk home and now have finally got home to dish out my feast.

Now they are watching a show and about to put face masks on.  What a lovely day the girls have had.

Mum made the mistake of leaving her shopping bag on the bed - so I have claimed it as my own.

Mum had a long busy day at work today.  She was on the early start and from the moment she put her bag down it was crazy and non stop.

When she finished though these things made her happy:

  • She didn't have to wait for a bus to go into town after work.   As soon as she arrived at the stop a bus turned up.
  • There was a good book waiting at the library ready to be picked up.
  • Her new favorite chocolate chip biscuits were on special at the supermarket.   A pack of 10 large cookies are $3, the price similar ones are sold for each at at the hospital cafes.
  • Dinner was quick and easy.  Spicy chicken and salad wraps.
  • A small chocolate mousse and strawberries for dessert (mum walked to work this morning and was on her feet all day).
  • Patting me and having a chat about my day when she got home.
  • A warm and cozy bed to sleep in tonight with a good book to read.

With all the rain the back garden is looking pretty green and lush.  After downpours last night it only drizzled today, but the rain is due back tomorrow.  

Mum got her worst nights sleep last night in ages.  She did toss and turn until 3.30am which made the alarm call at 6am far too early.  She did get to finish her book though.   She went for a walk after work, and got groceries.   She fed me my feast and then made herself some meatballs and salad for dinner with a big salad.  She bought new seasons strawberries to snack on.

So mum had to avoid napping when she got home.  Wish her luck getting to sleep tonight - I don't need her watching me for hours again.

Stormy Spring Sunday

It is a stormy view outside the windows this Sunday evening.  Mum dragged herself out if bed, showered and dressed herself but that is it.  Today has been a laaaaaaaazy one.  She will tidy the kitchen tonight, but no other chores.  She finished her book and watched some shows so that has been good because she had a long week.

Me too - I need more rest too.

It is blowing a gale outside today, so mums plans of hanging out the washing wasn't going to work.  She got a wee sleep in stayed in her dressing gown until the afternoon.   Then it was time to put the uniform back on and head out and brave the wind.

We sure are glad it is Friday - how about you?

Thursday, September 14, 2017


I am busy relaxing today - last night was hard.  Mum went back into work from 11pm- 1am, then 2am-4am.  She only slept from 6am-9am, then back to work for the afternoon.   Luckily kill she can sleep in tomorrow as she is on an afternoon shift and then Saturday and Sunday she is free.

Also it was rubbish night which is a big night out for indoor outdoor cats, as we all go out and sniffles the bags and patrol our areas.  So I is tired too.

Morning View

This was mums view when she woke up this morning.   I was asleep on the little chair.  I had been up earlier, as you can tell by the gap in the curtains I have made.  I like to check out my garden and watch the birdies.  Then I nap - all day.

Monday, September 11, 2017


It was a little quiet start to the week today.  Mum had a good day at work and enjoyed walking home in the sun with her shopping.  Yet again she forgot to put her phone in her bag and although she missed checking the Internet at lunchtime, it was nice to be phone free.  She left it on the charger tonight too.

I got to enjoy some sunshine too.

Spring Sunday

This beautiful blossom was all in bloom today as mum headed off for a walk.  She felt good this morning as last night she got a whole 8 hours if sleep.  When she awoke the sun was shining and the birds singing.

Mum went for an afternoon stroll into town and to soak up some vitamin D.  She got home by 4pm, in time to air the house for an hour, play in the garden with me, feed me my feast and bring in the washing.   Now it has cooled down, the clouds have come up from the south and brought rain with them.  So our doors and windows are closed again, I am snoozing on the bed and mum is watching Far From the Madding Crowd on the TV and eating chocolate chip biscuits .

We hope you are all having a lovely Sunday too.

Middle Aged Lady Pizza Party Big Night In Caturday

Mum had a great night of sleep - she has the midnight to 3.40am sleep down pat.  A pity about the rest of the night.  Still she managed to get up early and make herself presentable and went to her course.  It went well - interesting with good company and good quizzes and a great lunch.

Mum then went for a walk in the city where she wandered round aimlessly.   She came home and nodded off on the couch by 6pm.  She got my feast ready and had no energy to cook , but luckily pizza was at the house in an hour.

So she has a tummy full of cheesy,meaty goodness.   She has watched the News and Modern Family and is thinking that she will get us girls tucked up in bed and snoozing by 10.  Hopefully all night long.

How about you kitties - we hope you have had a lively Caturday.

Finally Friday

Hi friends we finally got a photo posted.  Mums shifts are over, and she has the weekend off but has to go to a 'study day' tomorrow.   For 5 hours unpaid.  Oh well.

So our fun Friday night is all about the chores.  Mum needs to hoover and tidy and wash her uniforms.   Yippee.   Luckily she has a pile of leftovers to eat.  Me - well I enjoyed my feast tonight as I was hungry.

We hope your Friday is going well with no dramas.  The news is filled with storms and earthquakes and the most boring of all - our upcoming elections.

Have fun!!

Bad Bad Blogger

We still have a problem and can't upload any photos.   Mum is still on shift and is trying to find out what is going wrong.

Naughty Blogger

Blogger is not letting us post any pictures tonight.  So no Wordless Wednesday post.  We will try tomorrow.

 Just as mum had climbed into bed, relaxed and closed her eyes last night the call phone rang and mum had to get back up, put her clothes on andwent into work.  She returned a couple of hours later, slept for two and then she was back in.  So she could turn the phone off at 8am.  She wishes she could have stayed up and been productive, but alas sleep was calling.  I joined her and we napped a lot of the day away.
She did get up for the evening, and felt like some comfort food.  So it was a quick lemon chicken risotto and a carrot/swede/parsnip mash.  Tasty and enough leftovers for another 3 meals, all portioned off and ready for the next shifts.

So dishes are being done close to midnight and mum will attempt to sleep soon.

Monday, September 4, 2017


Mum is tired today.  She managed to get four hours sleep last night and had an early start at work today.  She is on call tonight so she retreated to her bed when she got home - such a Nana.   I was happening an early feast and mum had leftovers from the other night.

We feel like we are moaning every day - please forgive us.

Sunday, September 3, 2017


Sunday has finally rolled round.  Mum finally drifted off to sleep around 2am.  She was not thrilled that I chose to tell her loudly at 6.30am that the biscuit bowl was empty and that it would be prudent for her to arise and refilled it immediately.   Of course I did not actually eat any and went back to bed cos I was tired.

Mum stayed in her bed as it was cold and read her book.  She then decided to head into the fruit and vegetables market where she stocked up on carrots, parsnips, broccoli, swede, coriander, limes, tomatoes and a cucumber.  Lots of vegetables for the week.

The restaurants were busy as families were out celebrating Father's day.   Mum thought a lot about her own dad and how much she misses him.

So the h

Chilled Caturday

Well this Caturday certainly has been a chilled one.  Poor mum only got to go to sleep at 4am.  She woke to her alarm at 8am and then fell asleep until midday.   She then desperately wanted a nap but has fought it so that she can try and sleep tonight.

She washed and scrubbed and hovered this afternoon.   Dinner was easy Ramen noodles and now it's time for ice cream.

I helped mum by showing her how to get some sleeps.   We hope you all enjoy your Caturday and get lots of rest.

Bye Bye Winter - Hello Spring

Goodbye winter, time for you to go niw, although we know that you have a tendency to hang around for some time to come.

 Mum finished the night shift this morning.   She always intends to stay up all day to reset her body clock, but somehow it is never possible.  She had her breakfast out and then wandered home after 8am.  She watched one of the Diana documentaries that have been on this week.  So sad, and twenty years on it seems such a loss for her sons and tragic for her to be gone at only 36.

So now as our evening comes to a close mum is wide awake.  So she is going to do some tidying up and read her book and hopefully get some sleep.
