This is me absorbing all the hear from the radiator. Miewmie calls it roastie toasty toesies time. Miewmie also says I'm daft and wonders how can I bear to lie on such a hot radiator with my lovely top to toe fur coat ! We were desert animals miewmie, remember ? We can take it !!
For days, weeks even, the weather here has been 'orrible. Nothing but rain, rain and more rain and wind as well. I am getting very bored and naughty indoors because I don't want to go out and get all wet. I only go when I really really have to and thats only because I refuse to use an indoor litter tway. Miewmie keeps telling me that she doesn't make it rain, so who does?
Miewmie is learning Mandarin Chinese and of course I have to help her and make sure she does her 'homework'. Sometimes she spends hours just practising writing chinese characters and I have to remind her to play with me. Sometimes, I even have to remind her that I haven't had my tea yet ! So, for emergency use only, I have secretly learned to write " feed me now": 我现在饲料 I suppose I should remember my manners and say 'thank you', xie xie, 谢谢
Don't you think I look stunningly beautiful amoung all the autumn leaves? This ivy belongs to our neighbour across the road and I like sitting in it at this time of year as I look so picturesque. Anyway, enough about me and my loveliness...for a moment or two anyway.
Miewmie met this puppy dog and his mummy when she was in Medjugorje earlier in the month. They lived in the pansion where miewmie was staying. Mummy dog loved to be cuddled and puppy dog just wanted to play. When miewmie was coming home, she left behind an old slipper so that he would have something to play with. Miewmie says they were adorable ! Well, I'm not too impressed with that statement as at the time I was here home all alone, all by myself. She even picked up a kitten which is quite a feat as most are semi-feral. She only slipped that one out when she thought Iwasn't listening. Hmmph. And I thought I was the love of her life !!!
Miewmie is back from her holiday ! Yay ! It has been a very long week for me and I refused to eat my whiskas food but miewmie says I don't look any slimmer ! Miewmie got a sun tan so she looks helfy even though she has a bad cold. She keeps sniffling all over the place so I am giving her warm healing cuddles to make her better. The good noos is that she has to save lots of pennies before she can go away again !!
I am here home all alone. Miewmie has gone and left me all by myself for a whole week. I miss her already. Our nice neighbour will come and feed me and talk to me so that will help, but I wish miewmie would come back. She is a long way away in some place called Bosnia Herzogovina. Miewmie please come home soon.
I am putting on my best 'cute' pose to make miewmie feel reely guilty at wanting to leave me and go away on holiday. How could she? What is so special about Bosnia-Herzegovina ? Today she did lots of dusting, cleaning and hoovering cos she likes to come home to a clean house. Well, it might not be quite so clean after my house twashing partee. She leaves next toosday and will be away a whole week !! I have a loverly garden and there are mices under the shed although it might be a bit cold for them now. There is plenty of nip and a cupboard full of tweets. Will you come over and keep me company?
This is what happened to miewmie's suitcase once before when she left me. You'd think she would have learned her lesson by now !!
Miewmie is up to something. She is putting things together on top of her chest of drawers. Last time she did this, she was going away to China. I don't think she is going that far this time but she is definately going somewhere. Oh how I hate my nice cosy routine being messed with. Who will feed me? Will I stay here? How long will she be gone? So many questions.
The v-e-t said on fryday (when I went for my woutine worming and flee tweetment) that I am " a bit too heavy". Reely? I am a slim 4.9kg. Worse than that, he said miewmie should give me 10% less fud. I will starve and fade away to nothing and will have no stwength. How much is 10% anyway? It sounds far too much to me. I am a mighty mouser and I need my stwength incase a mousie pops out to play. Sorry Mr v-e-t but no do.
I'm very dissapointed. I've been waiting for some mouses to come out and play but there have been none. Not one. Maybe its cos I was such a good mouser last year and there's none left. Awhh. Life is dull with no little furry critters to chase and play with. I spose I'll just have to relive those wonderful days last year when I caughted 4 mouses all in one day ! That was cat heaven.
In my last post I was napping on miewmie's wild strawberry patch. This time I'm napping in among the bamboo. This clump of bamboo lives at the bottom of my garden and is about 20 ft tall so I gets lots of privacy to nap, scratch, clean myself and generally do some deep philsophical thinking. Sometimes miewmie can't see me in here cos the bamboo is black and so is my fur coat ! ha ha.
This is me lying on miewmie's wild strawberry patch. It's in a part of the garden that gets the sun so I have created something of a nice nest for myself by squashing all the plants. I love to lie here where I get a good view of miewmie working in the garden. She weeds, deadheads and generally attempts to 'keep on top' of the garden. She is always busy so naturally I get very tired watching her and have to have long naps to recover.
This is me getting some serwious napping time in on MY sunlounger. Miewmie has covered it with a loverly fweecy blanket and rolled up the edge so I have something to lean against. You can see that on the left of this pichur. The sunlounger lives in the conservatory except for when miewmie gets a fit in her head to lie on it in the garden. Yes, she has the audacity to lie on MY sunlounger ! Fortunately, this distressing event doesn't happen too often.
This is me just chillin' out. It's been too hot lately to do much, even thinking is hard work. So, I just lie in the shade and let the gentle bweeze skim my furs. Umm. Miewmie has even been putting ice cubes in my water to make it nice and cool. I have twained her very well don't you think ?
Miewmie says I have ugly toesies ! This foto is just to show the world that my toesies are not ugly ! In fact, I think they are very white and beautiful. Do you see how perfectly straight they are? My other feeties are exactly the same, white and straight and furry beautiful..so there !!
A few good cats kindly gave me this International award. Thank you very much, I am very honoured. In turn I would like to pass it on to this cat that miewmie saw in the gardens of Shanghai old town last October. Isn't he/she gorgeous? Of course I don't know his/her name but I sure he/she is very friendly and would love to make friends with all of us bloggers. So here's to you 'Shanghai cat' !
This is my miewmie owt in the garden sitting under the rose arbour. Sometimes I make her move off the chair so that I can sit there and sun myself. There is an unwritten understanding between us that all chairs are mine and I can sit in them anytime I want to. Miewmie has also come to realise that her job is to maintain the garden for my delight and personal private use.
This is me stwetching out in my garden so you see my lovely white tummy furs. Miewmie likes to bury her head in my tummy and talk nonsense to my furs. She listens to my tummy too and says that she can hear my dinner in there ! Apparently it makes a plop, splash sound as it makes it way down. I find lying in the sun is the best aid to digestion there is. ZZZzzzzzzz...z...zz....zzz............
This is me in my very own jungle. Do you think I look like a fierce hunter? I am listening out for critters and watching for any unusual movement. This is what our big cat cousins do I think. My best catch to date has been several mouses all in one day when we had a famly of them living under the shed. That was SUCH fun. I am hoping that enough of them survived to start another famly so I can have more fun this year!
My catmint patch is on the right of this picture about harf way down. Its not easy to see cos miewmie has so many other planty things growing as well. It survived the winter and is now growing beautifully. Sometimes, miewmie picks some and then puts it on the path. I will then roll all over the path and get the wonderful aroma in my beautiful furs. Miewmie hoped that the catmint would deter me from eating the ornamental gwass...still only 3" tall.. ha ha. Now why is that I wonder ?? ummm. Dunno.
This is me pretending that I can read as I try and work out what it says on the side of the box. Apparently it says 'best before'. Best before what ? Does that make any sense to you? Anyway, it didn't detwact from the fun I had sniffing it, exploring it and jumping in it. I prefer weely stwong large paper bags though. Eventually, miewmie dismantled the box and put it out for re-cycling. How do you cycle a box? The hooman world is very perplexing at times don't you think?
This rather unflattering pichur is of me hunting in my garden. I was stalking a critter, some kind of bug thing and then it hidded itself under one of miewmie's plants. I waited a long time but it didn't come owt and then I got bored.
This is the quarterly newsletter of Master Travel, the company that miewmie has twice travelled to China with, the last time was for a tour called 'Medicine in China' last October. My miewmie entered the foto competition and while she didn't win, her photo is on the fwont page. Its the baby all dressed up on the back of a bicycle. Miewmie took this one morning in a Beijing park. She thinks it was his/her birthday and his mummy had brought him to the park specially for some birthday photos ! Little does she know that her baby's foto (miewmie asked permission to take this) is now all over the world ! The winning entry, that of a Tibetan monk lighting yak butter candles was taken by a fellow tour member !
Here I am patroling my garden when I heard something. I think it was a birdie. Miewmie puts owt nice tweets for them but they don't come when they think I am here ! humph. Anyway, you are probably wondering why my immaculate fur coat looks a bit dusty. Well, this is the result of a good session of rolling about on the garden path, lying on my back and displaying my beautiful tummy furs to the sunshine. Miewmie wants me to tell you that she sweeps this path almost every day. Yes of course you do miewmie.
Here I am in my garden checking that miewmie's plants are growing OK. I know it looks like I am nomming the cyclamen but really I was nomming some new grass shoots that are trying to grow alongside the cyclamen. Miewmie says the grass will nefer grow nice and tall if I keep shortening it. I can't help it if is very delicious can I ?
This is me watching the world go by on my garden wall. From here I can see beans coming and going and more importantly, other cats who think its OK to wonder into my patch. Its not OK !! Miewmie always wants to have a 'debrief' when I come in and tell her everything thats been happening. Sometimes though I fall asleep on sentry duty, especially when its sunny. Well, a girl has to get her beauty sleep and sleep owtdoors is especially regenerating.
I was just having a nice stretch up the wall, thats all. My only mistake was to have muddy feets at the time !! Miewmie is not happy. I may not get any tweets for some time. I offered to lick it all off but she said I would only end up making it look werse. Oh dear. I am in serwious twouble.
Yes, I know its nearly Easter but this is me playing in my Christmas bag. If you could see the writing on the top, it says Happy Christmas, at least thats what miewmie says. Anyway, this carrier bag is about 3 feet long and I love to run right in and hide. In this foto, I am at the entrance posing. I love posing and it helps of course that I am so very beautiful !! My black furs show up well against the red bag don't you think?
Miewmie's gone all poetical. Well, actually she didn't write this but she thought it was very apt for such a glorious spring day. I think those industrial strength antibiotics she took have affected her bwain !!
Oh, to be in England Now that April's there, And whoever wakes in England Sees, some morning, unaware, That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough In England-Now !
My miewmie hasn't been too well recently, hence the lack of bloggy updates. She has inflammation on both lungs and is taking antibiotics so I have been very busy looking after her. Can you see my attentive expression in this foto? I make sure she gets lots of fizzio by having to get up and feed me, let me out the fwont door and so on. I also sometimes sit on her chest when she is in bed. I think that will help her lungs get better.
No, I'm not weely asleep, I'm just resting my eyes. Weely I am. Grretta kindly gave me the 'Kreativ blogger' award and I have to list 6 things that make me happy. Well, thats easy: mouses, dinner with lots of gwavy, snoozing on top of the wadiator (like in this foto), big big paper bags, having miewmie rub my tummy, waking miewmie up in the very early hours just to tell her I love her. Dennis also makes me happy. He has sent me thwee posts and said nice things in them.
I am the proud recipient of 3, yes 3 awards. My good fwend Beethoven nominated me for the Friends award. Then Castle Diva gave me the Proximity award and finally, Hansel gave me the Honest scrap award. Apologies for the delay in posting this good noos but miewmie has been furry busy wot with one fing and anofer. Yesterday, she was at The London Fashion Show. Imagine that, my miewmie who knows nothing about fashion ! Anyway, she was part of a large gang who went to support 'Romeo Pires' make their debut cos they are family. She felt a bit old amoung all the beautiful young people !!!
Back to more impawtant stuff...my awards. The Honest scrap award says I have to post 10 honest fings about me. Well, as you can imagine, this has needed careful consideration. Anyway here goes: 1- When I stwetch out full length, I feel the need to follow this by immediately licking my posterior. 2- When miewmie shakes my paw, my wiskers go up and down. 3- When miewmie yawns, I yawn and vice versa. 4- I like to lick the gwavy off my dinner 5- I chase mouses 6- Sometimes I looses the mouses in the house. 7- I have a weely tiny sqeek of a miaow. 8- If its raining at the back door, I insist on checking the fwont door to see if its raining there too. 9- I scwatch the carpets. Miewmie gets furry cwoss when I do this. 10-I like to inspect all cupboards and wardrobes, every day if possible.
This is me in la-la land. Actually, I am sitting on the windowledge soaking up all the heet comming owt of the wadiator. Miewmie says she is paying for heat to get lost in my beautiful furs ! Whatever ! This is almost as good as a good catnip twip. Hey, was that a pink elephant just flew by ???
This is a bad foto miewmie, I don't like it so pleeze don't put it on my bloggy page. Too late. I look like I haf 4 eyes !! Miewmie would like to reassure effuryone that she was very sober when she took this and had only been dwinking tea and taking 'over the counter' medicines for her cough/cold/floo. Hmm. I don't know what they put in those medcins for beans !! Maybe the list of horrible things that can happen to you says something about 4 eyes ??
Look, my garden is full of white stuff. Miewmie is hoping that even more white stuff will fall owt of the sky so she can build a snowman, whatever that is ! I ventured owt but my puddies got very cold so I wushed straight back indoors. I don't think I like this white stuff.
Miewmie said I could choose a pichur of her to put on my bloggy page so I chose this one. This was taken when miewmie was in Beijing last October and I was in prison. See the pichur of the man behind miewmie on the wall, his name was Chairman Mao. Did you know that mao (first tone) in Chinese means 'cat'. Thats really the reason I chose this foto but don't tell miewmie I said that.
This is me on MY sunlounger in the conservatory. You can see I am lying on a fweece gillet which was once Miewmie's. Everything in my house was once Miewmie's but she has graciously conceeded that I am the rightful owner of whatever takes my fancy. I do lots of napping on this fweece and think deep pussycat thoughts, like, where do the stars go in the daytime? Where have all the flowers gone? Why are there no mouses to play with? So you can see, I am constantly pre-occupied with these furry impawtant qwestshuns. Is it any wonder that I need
lots of nap time. I am not just lying here looking beautiful and gorgeous.
Here I am waiting patiently for a sunbeam to fall across my beautiful furs. Alas, no sunbeam, only cold, fwosty wefer. Nothing for it I guess, but to go and lie on Miewmie's bed and take a long nap until Mr sunshine comes back.
I was recently adopted from the RSPCA by miewmie who was very lonely after Aoise went to the Rainbow Bridge. She wanted a special girl and I am special. I was abandoned in the past but now I have a lovely tranquil home and a beautiful garden. I am about 5 years old and entirely black apart from my sea green eyes. I am quite petite and love, love, love my food.
