Being loved by a soggy moggy is a mixed blessing....

Sitting out on the stoop with a cat on my lap, listening to the rain, drinking wine and watching Due South. Not such a bad way to spend a Friday evening.

Note to self: When the resident felines sit and *stare* at you like that, it probably means nobody's fed them yet...

Oh Max...

A cat with very cold paws has just jumped onto my lap seeking scritches and food...
azziria: (max2)
So, one cat is bouncing around the garden throwing snow in the air and pouncing on it then licking it off his paws while the other cat is firmly indoors and having nothing whatsoever to do with that nasty cold white stuff out there...

Max, you need to understand that the concept of Hut Rules DOES NOT APPLY TO CATS. Not in this house, anyway.

Get off my chair. Now.

Max, while you and I both know that you *often* sit on the kitchen work surfaces, I would appreciate it if you could refrain from doing so while we have visitors so that I can at least *pretend* that optimal hygiene standards are maintained in this house.

Oh Milly!

If you're going to sit up there by my ear, do you think you could wash a little more quietly?

And you're definitely too old for tail-chasing. Especially when it means you fall off the back of the chair and onto my head.

I've just been swiped in the face by a soggy half-washed tail. Yuk.

Menace of a cat!

Oh no!

We have A Dog visiting.

Neither kitteh is very impressed...

(Although said Dog is very sweet and well-behaved, and has a healthy respect for cats!)

Nobody gives you the cold shoulder quite as effectively as a cat you've pissed off...

I am ignoring this cat, who should not be on the kitchen table licking out my empty cereal bowl (and knows it perfectly well, given the way he's keeping a wary eye on me).

I am ignoring him because at least while he is engaging in this highly illegal activity he is not trying to climb my leg and yelling at me to feed him.

What is it about cats and boxes? Honestly...

I have a very insistent lapful of wet cat.

I think someone might be hungry...

Max had the stitches out of his paw last night, and is now allowed outside again.

Suffice to say I now have one cat who is in and out through the cat flap like a yo-yo (because he wants to be out but hasn't been fed yet so can't possibly move more than a five-second dash from the food bowl, just in case) and one cat who is now going to take a fortnight to realise that the cat flap actually works again (although she is of course firmly of the opinion anyway that she shouldn't ever have to use the nasty cat flap, we humans should be holding the door open for her whenever she wants out or in).

Life returns to normal. I think Max is deeply relieved :)

If that cat gets any deeper in the beanbag he will suffocate...

Soggy cat

Milly, I love you dearly, but please take your cupboard love enthusiastic affection elsewhere. You are soaking wet and I don't want to be.

Guess that means it must be raining out there, then...

Milly is deeply suspicious of the new sofa :)

So funny...

Milly is hunting a sweet wrapper and Max is hunting Milly. Honestly, who needs TV?

Maximum Muddypaws, Inspector of Building Works.

Guess that's the sofa covers back into the wash, then.

Good thing I like our neighbours so much...

Milly still adopts the same line of attack that she did when she was a small kitten: she stalks around Max with her back arched, picks her moment, and jumps on his head.

It's just that now she's bigger it has more impact *g*

No, not Max or Milly.

When we first moved to this house, half a mile from our old house, one of our two cats, Barnaby (a big ginger-and-white rescue moggie), refused to move with us. We kept moving him and keeping him in, but each time, two days or so after being let out, he went back. The pull of his territory was just too great.

In the end our old neighbours adopted him.

Out for a walk the other evening we bumped into our old neighbours. They told us that Barnaby died last year, at a grand old age. He had become a real lap cat, and grown thin at the end (although the vet had constantly reassured them that he was in no pain or discomfort), and eventually they found him curled up 'asleep' on the doormat one morning, having passed away with no fuss.

A good end for an old friend. RIP, Barnaby, you were much loved.
