Busy 2016

Already heading towards the end of the first half of the year. Goodness, I’m not sure where the weeks have gone!

DD is now 10 and she has discovered activities that she loves to do that work with her need for space and her need for downtime. She acknowledges she loves to spend time with her friends and to do fun things, even if it’s only watching a DVD together. The only drawback is that I end up having to help organise these get-togethers. She feels it dreadfully when friends have to pull out of an activity or their parents decide they’re going to do something else after they’d already committed. I have to do a lot of soothing of hurt feelings then.

Cat show coming up. That means the Washing of the Cat will happen tonight.

All cats like to sit in boxes.

The Little Cat Prince likes to sit in a pink plastic washing up bowl which is a bit small for him. I could hear awful noises in the middle of the night and tiptoed into the loungeroom to investigate. It was His Highness sleeping in a funny position in his bowl, snoring like some wild beast.

Photos of the day – Pets and Christmas

“Pets in Christmas Costumes”

Sweet gallery! I love how most cats look thoroughly unimpressed about being stuffed into decorative hats etc for a photo. I should try the Little Cat Prince and see if he’s interested in dressing up … Ha ha!

Housework begone!

If you have a Siamese cat, this would be great for dusting high shelves. You could get a wet version for kitty kitchen counter surfers, too!

Funny cat in a Christmas tree

Christmas cat stuck

Yeah, I know, cats can be a total pill about Christmas trees. We had a Blue Somali who climbed our tree each year. We’ve had other cats who simply redecorated whichever branches they disapproved of.

Our new cat, the Little Cat Prince, simply sits on presents and messes up the paper. I’ve had to re-wrap several gifts already. OTOH, we don’t have a Christmas tree worthy of his attention. We bought a little conifer and it’s sitting on the balcony ready to be re-potted in a much bigger pot.

I was going to re-pot the tree last night but after fixing up the herbs (sweet basil, Thai basil, lemon thyme, sage) in new pots, my shoulder and arm couldn’t take any more work. Maybe tonight.

Maybe I’ll post a photo of our growing balcony soon.

Our darling Little Cat Prince

He is now considerably bigger – this photo was taken in August. He now fills the sink when he naughtily decides to go sink hopping. He also lies on the granite bench tops in the kitchen and I found him trying to have a snooze on the hob last night – aarrrgghhh! Fortunately I hadn’t done any recent cooking on the induction plates so he was safe.

Darling little cat. Um, big cat.
