So I slept pretty well last night, although mum kept an eye on me.  My biscuits have been taken away as they are a bit too crunchy.  So I woke up at 6.30am to ask for some foods.  I was allowed feast for my breakfast even though mum smuggled my pills into it.

Mum zipped out to the supermarket for a while today and then came back and sat on the computer while I snuggled next to her. 

I was a bit feisty tonight at pain relief time.  Good luck with the syringe tomorrow Mum.

Thank you all for your kind well wishes.

Post Operation

Hello my friends.  It has been a tough 24 hours.   Last time I had to go and have a senior check mum got told that it was time I had my teeth operated on.  Mum agreed to book it in, but was understandably nervous, as I am now 13 and have both a heart murmur and an arrhythmia.   The last time I had a dental operation, mum had starved me at home from 10pm, and I did not like it.  I jumped on her all night and howled for 8 hours straight.  This time mum felt incredibly guilty, but she booked me into the cattery the night before.

She told them to go ahead and do what was needed, so when the phone went off at 1.30pm mum was thinking the worst.  Instead it was the vet ringing to say that they had tried to extract the tooth, but the root was stuck and unable to be fully removed as it was so crumbly.   Mum said that they should do whatever they thought was best - what else could she say?  So I am minus a tooth.

So when she picked me up it was only at 4pm, but boy was she pleased to see me.  She got me home and tried to keep me still and quiet, although I did annoy her by trying to do a couple of wobbly walks and jumping onto the bed and missing.  She got me settled and I had a big sleep.

She has come into see me a couple of times, and every time she talks to me I purr and purr at her.  I ate a half a fancy feast for dinner, and even took my pain relief ok, even if a little bit dribbled onto my chin.  Good luck with the antibiotics in the next couple of days though mum.

So at the moment I am tucked up in my little warm bed next to the heater.  This photo was taken when I got home.  I wanted my bag and my mum and a little sleep.  Mum will take care of me tonight and let you know how I am tomorrow.  Nite Nite!!

There is a soft little spot just under my ear that sometimes I tolerate my mum giving it a little rub or even a tiny kiss.  Mum gave it lots of little kisses today and told me she loved me.

Mum you forgot yo put something back on the bed for me.  Can you guess what it is??

Cat Beds I Have Loved Before

Mum went to visit friends this afternoon for a lovely lunch.  Their handsome boy Dust is resting on a well loved sheepskin rug, one that mum brought for me that I refused to sleep on. 

It is nice that other cats have got some joy out of that cat bed.  I prefer my plastic bag.

I spent some time in the sun with mum today.  She had popped out for lunch with a friend and went and bought me some feasts.  She made her dinner and sat down to watch the rugby.  She was sad that our team lost but well done to England.

Happy Birthday Mum

Happy birthday to my mum.  She got to have a lovely day with lots of yummy food and treats.  She says the best gift was me not waking her up at 6am.

Thursday, October 24, 2019


Don't let the blue skies fool you, the clouds rolled in and the rain arrived.  Now we have the heater on and mum managed to rescue the washing before it got wet.

Tuesday, October 22, 2019


Its cooling down outside tonight so I'd better snuggle down on the big bed in mums spot.

Mum got some well earned sleep last night but she did not enjoy the alarm waking us up this morning.  All day she kept thinking of the chicken tacos for dinner.  She tried to give me some chicken but no thank you.  Mum gave me a fishy feast to try.  I licked the gravy off and left the bits.

Mum likes purple agapanthus.  When she was a girl neighbors down the road had a little piglet that liked to escape and run round to mums house and chew the flowers until his family came and found him.

Can You Find Me?

I helped my mum make the bed last night.  We had a play and then this teenager needed a rest.    Today has been a lazy day.  Mum has felt the switching from nightshift back to normal hours hard and has had lots of naps.  oh and she made herself chicken tacos for dinner which she says have helped.

Little Caturday

It rained heavily last night and mum surprised herself by getting some sleep.  She got up and headed off to the vet, only because I had almost run out of biscuits with only enough to last until Monday. 

As the day went on the clouds eased and mum did some more chores, the library and the supermarket.  By the time she made it home and got the washing on she was pooped and needed a nap.  So us girls had a nap together before mum made an easy dinner for her and a feast for me.

I got to have sharkie out on the grass again for a while again today.  Lucky me!!  Now the evening is almost over and mum is relaxing waiting for the rugby to begin and I am napping again.

We hope that you all have had a nice Caturday and got to do some fun stuff.

Return To Normal

Mums night shifts have finally finished.  She had a nap today and then went out to have dinner with some friends which was nice.  The weather was wet, cold and windy so I stayed home and waited for her.  You can make the bed tomorrow mum.

Sunbathing Introoder

Mum was hanging out the washing today and found the neighbor introoder cat hanging out on top of our garden shed, soaking up the sunbeams.  What a nice way to spend a sunny morning.

Happy Birthday To Me - Do You Like My Present?

Happy birthday to me! Happy Birthday to me - today I am Thirteen!!!

Do you like my present?  Mum let me open Sharkie outside and I knew what to do straight away.  I rolled around and scratched for ages.  Mum said she did not expect him to be so big.  Now he is living in the hallway and I am sure will scare mum tonight.

Why after a wet grey week does the sunshine only come out when mum is on her way to work?  She put the towels out on the line so I am on guard duty. 

Saturday, October 12, 2019


Mum might have to put up some old photos this weekend like this one of the poppies at our old place.  The weather is grey and dull outside and I'm choosing to snooze the day away.  Mum had a big old sleep in too, and has to go to work this afternoon.  She made a big lunch of creamed sweetcorn and cheese toasted sandwiches for lunch and has some tasty pasta to take to work with her.  Me - I had biscuits all day.

We hope you have some fun today on your Caturday.

Can You See Me?

As mum left for work I was hiding in the garden looking out for introoders.

Last Week

One afternoon last week the skies went dark and it got cold and mum grabbed the camera as the hail started.  Can you see Mr Blackbird hiding?

Mum has counted up and she has got only 11 hours sleep overnight in the past 4 nights.  She got a few naps in the day but feels a bit like she has been tortured.  She thinks parents must be super awesome for coming with little to no sleep most nights.

So tonight she is aiming for 7+ hours.  Go mum.  I'll try not to wake you up at 5am like this morning.

Monday, October 7, 2019


Mum got called in again early this morning which gave her the day at home.  She was pleased to be able to share some afternoon sunbeams with me.

She also did some study.  She is doing a small online course on ancient Egypt.  She felt like learning something interesting.  It is only for 6 weeks and she us enjoying all the reading, but not looking forward to the quiz at the end.

So now to go to bed and read some more.

We had some sunshine today which was lovely.  Mum had to get some sleep this morning as she had had to go into work overnight again.  One more night and then she can rest properly.  She did manage to get some washing on the line and do some other chores .  she also joined me in the garden for a wee break.

Saturday, October 5, 2019


Today it was pretty chilly with rain and it was a good day to just curl up and keep warm.  Mum had to go into work several times so she spent the morning sleeping.  I only woke her up 4 times to check she was ok.  Now I'm tired.

We hope you all are having a nice Caturday.

Mum had an early bird start at work this morning.  Boy it was chilly when she got up, she almost had to pull out the gloves to wear, but a brisk walk warmed her up.  She finished early and was able to get home to me in enough time to get some uniforms washed and out drying on the line in the breeze.

Now we are relaxing and mum is trying to be zen and calm as she is on call  for the next three nights and knows that she will not get much sleep or rest.  I will be snoozing enough for the both of us.

Thursday, October 3, 2019


Mum had the bad sleeps last night.  She lay there willing herself to snooze off but it didn't really happen.  She tossed and turned for hours, finally drifting off around 4am, getting only a couple of hours before the alarm went off.

So tonight she has kept herself busy, resisted napping, had a carb fulled dinner of bacon on toast, used left over bacon to make bacon and tomato toasties for her lunch tomorrow, watched some light comedy and avoided the news, watched her face and used some nice moisturizer,  got her book ready, heated up the bed (it's been cold here tonight) and talked to me about not taking an hour for me to get settled.  Fingers crossed she can get a good 6 hours of sleep.

Hello October

 Hello October we are glad you are here.  It is our birthday month.
We are a bit annoyed that the fine warm weather we had been having has been replaced by coldness and rain.  Bring the spring weather back soon please.
