Wake me up in October!!

Sunday, September 29, 2019


Mum had to work today.  She thinks it was a bad choice to pick up a shift on the morning that daylight savings went forward, as she got very little sleep.  The good thing is that it will help her get into a rhythm while she adjusts and she doesn't have to go to work on Monday.

Chilling With Cheddar Caturday

Oh man - mum found this instagram kitty Cheddar last night and can't stop checking out the website.  First off she can't even think how they got their kitty to pose like that, and mum is jealous she didn't think of it first.  Colour me jealous. 

Have a nice Caturday - do something fun!!

Jungling season has begun.  I like to sit in the garden and watch the going on in the neighbourhood.

Neighbour Cat

Mum was hanging out the washing this morning being watched by neighbour cat.  We don't know his/her name or even which house they live in.  We don't mind them being in the garden but we have caught them sneaking into our house.

Night Time Rituals

8.30pm-10pm beg mum to come to bed.
10.05-10.15 lay down on her leg to get a cuddle.
10.15-10.20 act annoyed and jump off bed.  Eat biscuits.
10.20-10.45 scratch to get under the quilt and spend 15 minutes fussing to get comfortable.
10.47 Too hot.  Get off mum's bed.  Eat biscuits.
10.50 Now I tunnel in under the quilts from the side of the bed.   Howl for mum for 10 minutes cos I am lost.

11.00 You touched me.  Annoyed.  Jump off bed.  Eat biscuits.

Sleep alone in my heated cat bed.

And mum complains that she's tired!!!!🐱

I gave mum a good talking to when she got home, as she had forgotten to put my bag back on the bed after she had made the bed last night.  I proceeded to roll around on it and ask to be brushed.

It has turned stormy this afternoon, of course on the day when mum forgot to take her jacket to work.  She got in with a pile of groceries before the rain started though, even though she had the slowest bus driver in the city drive her home.  Leftovers for her dinner and a feast for me.  She is now smelling the house out by boiling eggs to make for sandwiches for lunch tomorrow.  Egg farts in bed - I am so looking forward to it.

Mumster Present Ideas

 With only 3 months until Christmas is upon us again, I thought I would get some shopping ideas in for my mumster.  She likes a good tshirt and or sweatshirt, and I found these ones for her on ETSY.  This first grey beauty is from YourWishCo.  Looks like it shows a typical day of your active cat.
Mum likes the Cool Cat Lady from Qurious Shop.  She's a cool cat like me.

 The Hiss Tshirt from Popular Shop makes her smile. 
You can't beat a Crazy Cat Lady tee from Dogs and Unicorns.  Cos really that is who she is deep down. 
The Cat Petting zone sweatshirt might be her fave though.  You might have to enlarge the photo to see properly.  It is from YourWishCo again. 

Anyone else been shopping for their persons?  Found any treats they may like?

Every time mum went in to take the bedding off the bed to wash it she found me here.  So the sheets will have to be washed on Sunday instead. 

Tonight is mum on the couch watching rugby with some soup and toast for her dinner.  The rugby world cup matches have started in Japan.  Our team are playing South Africa tonight.

I am a lucky girl being able to roll around in the garden by myself on a spring day.

We are glad that we are getting some vitamin D again.  It is still frosty overnight and cool in the evenings, but between 10am-4pm it is just lovely.  Mums sleeping has been terrible this week.  Between shift work, on call and a stormy windy night in combination with middle age has been a shocker for her.  She has fingers crossed tonight that she gets a good 7 hours or so.  I'm going to jump on her and help her snuggle down.

I was quick this morning and got onto the quilt on mum's side before she had a chance to finish making the bed.  She didn't mind - my comfort comes first. 

Monday, September 16, 2019


Today mum has been looking through the archives saving some old pictures like this one of me with my teddy bear.  She still has the bear, although I have no interest in it now.

An Oldie but Goodie

Several years ago mum tested out the experiment of buying me a cat bed.  You can see how it went.

Caturday Shopping - Stylish Bed Options from Etsy

This one is from Like Kittyville which mum thinks is uber tasteful and stylish.  Forest green is an in color this year too.
Say what?  Look at this modern space capsule cat cave/bed from Pets Helper Co .  Mod with an upstairs window so you can stay safe from introoders.  

Who doesn't love a hammock?  Check out these beauties from Funny Pets.  Perfect for the cat swingers you know.

Upstairs?  Downstairs?  You choose in this delightful Downton Abbey Duplex.  Built in air conditioning on the sides to let the breeze blow in and so you can check out the views.  Can't afford the wood mega millionaire version?  Cat Play House  offer a more wallet friendly cardboard version for those of us on a strict budget.

Thanks for shopping with us.  I of course sleep on a $3 shopping bag on my mums bed.  All that might have been different if mum opted for one of these more stylish options.

Just waiting for you to come home mum.

Thursday, September 12, 2019


The weather forecast says it has meant to rain the past few days but we are lucky and have had lots of sun shines.  I am trying to get my vitamin D.  In reality it is now often warmer outside the house than inside.

Book Sitter

I'm going to sit on your book until you wake up mum. 

Saturday, September 7, 2019


Mum enjoyed a leisurely sleep in this morning and I encouraged her by asking for 2 cuddles.  She had a couple of jobs to do in town so she enjoyed a walk in the sun.  It was a bit chilly at 8degrees C.  I stayed in the house soaking in a sunbeam through the window.

Mum came home and did some exciting jobs like washing, scrubbing the toilet and doing the dishes before going to work all evening.

The best part of the weekend is that mum has Monday and Tuesday as her days off.  Rain is forecast but mum will be pleased - she can stay inside and read and cuddle with me..

Mystery Bag

What's in this bag mum?  Mum worked shift tonight and got home real late with 2 bags of groceries.  So I only got my dinner at 11.30pm.  Mum had here then too so I guess we're both going to bed on a full tummy.

Rainy Nights

It's rainy and cold in the city tonight and mum had soup and toast for dinner.  I had feast and then a big snooze.  I was happy to have mum home and have been very chatty tonight and mum is trying to figure out what's wrong. 

Mum is beginning to have book anxiety as she has a pile of 8 or so to get through.  The cold night's are perfect for curling up in bed with.  I make sure to have a quick snuggle with mum when she turns the lights off.  I spend 10 minutes wriggling round, two minutes sleeping and then I jump off the bed and snack on biscuits.  Life is good.

I had to go and get my 3rd injection today.  It is the 3rd one and then one more next week and a check with the vet.  It is meant to help with the arthritis in my back legs.  Mum is sceptical about it but is prepared to give it a go if it helps me.  Then we will go to me a month for a couple of months.

Last week we were late cos mum had to chase me round the garden to chase me.  This week we were early and in and out and home within 20 minutes.  So mum treated herself to a walk in the sunshine and lunch out while I calmed down and slept at home.

Welcome to spring.  It was a bit cooler and overcast today but we are glad to see the back of winter although we are aware that we will still have some rubbish weather ahead of us.

Mum was up at the crack of dawn to head to work.  It was a busy day so she was glad when work was over.  She enjoyed a little supermarket shop but just about pulled her shoulder joints lugging it home.

Not much done tonight us girls are going to have a lazy one.
