MY VALENTINE’S NON-DATE

If you read my last post you would know that I am not a fan of the human custom known as ‘Valentine’s Day’. Myself and my friend Gyspy had decided to have a non-date, we planned that it would be very un-romantic and that we would have fun in celebration of our single freedom and our love of ourselves as marvelous cats! The humans may think that we are egotistical but it is not in a cats true nature to have low self esteem, we are proud beings and we aren’t afraid to admit how purrfect we are!

Previously Gypsy and I have ventured to the realms of being ‘more than friends’, in the past Gypsy had declared that she loved me and we have been on a date together but then she decided she just wanted to be friends and after talking about it we both decided that we are happier being single cats.  However, the non-date didn’t exactly go as planned, and I will let you all in on a few secrets later on but for now I am getting ahead of myself, let me tell you what happened from the beginning of our non-date.

First of all Gyspy came straight into my house and scoffed all of my food! I was not pleased! But I suppose it was in keeping with the un- romantic theme, however, I thought she went a little too far!

Greedy Gypsy!
Greedy Gypsy!

Oh the horror on my face as Gypsy scoffs my food!

Then after she finished scoffing my food she rudely stuck her tongue out at me!

Just when I thought she couldn’t get any ruder she turned her back on me and ignored me when I tried to start a conversation!

So I decided enough was enough and so I chased her into the wardrobe and batted her every time she tried to come out! That taught her a lesson! Hopefully she’ll never scoff my food again!

Then I chased her into my cat tunnels and I wouldn’t let her come out!

Next one of my human house mates came along and started playing with us so I stopped being horrible and we all played together.

Now then, here is a secret that I would like to share but whatever you do you must not let Gypsy know of this! Even after all of the rude and awful things that Gypsy had done and the horrible way that I had retaliated, there was a moment when I looked through my tunnel at her and my heart skipped a beat! Was it that I still do have feelings for Gypsy or was it perhaps just that stunning new purple collar she was wearing!?

After we had played for a while we went into the living room and the humans gave us some treats. We sniffed around and Gypsy left her scent around the room, this did not please me

I kept a close eye on Gypsy at all times as she was being most displeasing!

Then it happened again, another moment when I looked at Gypsy and went weak at the paws and I was lost for purrs!

I decided it best I ask her to leave immediately as I was starting to feel very confused! At one point I even thought to myself ‘if only this was a real date’! For yowling out loud why does she have this affect on me! I think it best I stay in on my own for a while and avoid Gypsy until these funny feeling go away, I will not let myself fall in love as I am much better off free and single. Anyway, she always scoffs my food and I could not put up with that all of the time! 

So that’s about all I have to tell about my very confusing non-date! Now I must go and nap as this has been a very tiring day!

MY PURRFECT CHRISTMAS

Well can you believe it! Christmas has been and gone already! I hope that everyone had a purrfect day because I sure did!

I waited up on Christmas Eve night as I wanted to be awake for Santa Paws so that I could keep and eye on him and make sure that he really is a nice man and not a burglar! But guess what…I fell asleep and missed him! I have now decided that Santa Paws is nice as he left me lots of presents and didn’t cause any trouble, he didn’t even leave a nasty smell.

My presents included lots of bouncy balls, a dangley toy on a stick, 4 little toy fish, a lovely eco friendly food bowl and a hair brush which I might accidentally on purpose have to break or lose as I HATE being brushed! Maybe I was a little bit naughty and that’s why Santa Paws gave me that!

I got some photos of me with my presents 🙂

A present for me? What could it be?

I shall have a fishy on a little dishy, when the boat comes in!

After I opened and played with my presents I was given a treat and a tin of my favourite food. Christmas day where I live was a lovely bright clear day so after breakfast I went outside for a while to watch the birds, after which I visited my neighbours who gave me lots more lovely food!

What a beautiful day to take in some fresh air!

In the evening my human companions returned to my house as they had gone out at midday. They put me in my carry case by tricking me with a treat! I know what you’re thinking, why did I fall for it, but food is my weakness, I just can’t resist a treat! I thought that I was going to the horrible place that I don’t even like to mention that begins with the letter ‘V’ but to my relief I was taken in the car down the road to visit my catsitters, Auntie and Granny! There were loads of people there and one human who is my uncle said that it was like having a celebrity guest visiting! All of the humans loved me and I did my best to look very suave and sophisticated. Grandad teased me and played with me and I accidentally scratched him, I felt a tiny bit guilty but then he knew the risks when he decided to tease me so I wasn’t going to dwell on it! I was given even more presents – a sparkly dangley mouse toy and an eco food bowl and I was also given some more delicious food to eat!   

Posing to impress, Morris celebrity guest!

After a purrfect Christmas day I was glad to get back and rest at home with that warm feeling inside that one often has after a day of luxurious fine foods, purrfect presents and tremendous company!
