Well it has been quite a while since I have written a post on my blog or even been on the internet! You see I’ve been having quite the adventure. I decided to do something crazy and learn more about the world so I went on a world cruise!
Let me tell you that I explored some very exciting and interesting places! I went to the Taj Mahal in India, on Safari in Kenya, I relaxed on beautiful beaches in the Seychelles, visited the statue of liberty in America and I went to Sydney, Australia where I met some very talented Aboriginal musicians!
I have recently been pondering the subject of humans. Since meeting more cats both on-line and in my neighbourhood I have discovered that cats have very mixed feelings when it comes to humans. I personally enjoy the company of humans and think that most of them are very nice and kind and I see them as equals although I do not dispute that there are many ways in which the abilities of cats surpass human abilities. Some cats detest humans, believing themselves to be superior in every way, they will not have anything to do with humans or if they do then they make their life hell, other cats are afraid of them and some cats worship them like they are their masters. My use of the internet has also increased my knowledge of humans and their relationships to cats, I have discovered that there are some evil humans who torture us in the name of science or for their own sick enjoyment, there are others that treat us as objects – dressing us up and such like but then there are those who go out of their way to help us and look after us such as my wonderful friends : LadyPinkrose@ http://herladypinkrose.wordpress.com/, http://twoblindcatsandcrew.wordpress.com/, http://catsincrisisthanet.wordpress.com/just to name a few! (sorry if I have left anyone out).
Humans do have their oddities, here are some thoughts on some of the odd things that I have noticed about humans. One of the humans’ greatest weaknesses is that weird food they eat and go crazy for called ‘cake’. They have it on special occasions such as birthdays or when they decide they can’t resist the temptation. I have closely watched humans when they eat this cake and it has a strange effect on them which looks very similar to Smokey when he’s got some cat nip. I once had a taste of some cake and it was absolutely disgusting! I have no idea why they love it so much! Another of their oddities is their desire to immerse themselves into water for up to an hour or sometimes two in what they call ‘a bath’. Us cats can clean ourselves in 20 minutes tops, we are made with our own in-built cleaning system, however humans are not. Sometimes the humans will opt for a quick shower but if they decide to treat themselves and relax they opt for a bath and sometimes they even add potions and foaming things which makes it taste yucky for any cats who want a drink! Why on earth they would choose to spend so long immersed in water amazes me! Another odd thing about humans is their perceived inability to survive without clothes. Us cats have our silky warm fur to keep us warm but human’s skin and hairs are not good enough for keeping them warm and protected. What is very odd is that the humans don’t just wear the clothes for their useful function they wear an array of different clothes in an attempt to look good and pertain to a certain style that they develop themselves, whereas us cats are born with style! I emerged into the world wearing a Tuxedo I didn’t have to buy one from a shop to look this good!
This is all I have to write on the subject of humans for now, but I will be writing about them on a later date as there is so much more one can say on the subject, for now I will relax and nap.
I hope that you have all have a good weekend! Purrs…
This weekend I have been spending some time with some of my paw pals. First of all yesterday I had a visit from Smokey, he ate some of my food (which I was not pleased about!) and then we played a game of hide and seek and I won!
Hello Morris! Hello Smokey!
No not my food!
Smokey will never find me in here!
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, coming ready or not!
I wonder where Morris is hiding?
Could Morris be behind the radiator?
I just don’t know where Morris could be!
Last night while I was out and about I bumped into my friend Gypsy. We talked about what has happened between us in the past few weeks after our date and both of us agreed that we are happy just being paw pals rather than girlfriend and boyfriend. I invited her into my house as it was quite cold. We hunted around the house for some treats with no luck but then luckily my male human gave us some treats. It was pawsome to see Gypsy again and I am glad that we can still be good paw pals 🙂
Hello humans can we have treats please?!
No Gypsy, there’s no treats in there!
Are there any treats in the bathroom?
No treats here 😦
There’s no treats in this bucket of paper recycling 😦
Hmm, let me think, where could those treats be?
Is that the treat box rattling that I can hear!
Yes give us the treats, NOW!
Goodbye Morris, I’m going back outside through the cat flap.
Ok I’ll show you out and make sure you’re safe.
Today I relaxed and watched the humans, dogs and cats out of my window, then I went outside and visited some of my human friends and patrolled my territory. The weather was very nice today here in Kent.
I hope that you all had a lovely weekend too!
There’s nothing better than looking through the window on a lazy Sunday morning!
Today started off as a very sad Caturday 😦 It started last night when my best friend Smokey who lives next door came to my house to see me.
Smokey had come to me with a message from Gypsy, the lovely lady cat with whom I had enjoyed a romantic date with last Caturday. Smokey informed me that Gypsy does not want another date with me as she is not yet ready for a relationship and just wants to stay friends, she had said that it’s not me it’s her that is the problem. I wonder what she means?! perhaps she has a hygiene problem or a catnip addiction! I didn’t get the impression that she had a problem but some cats can surprise you with these things as we are very secretive in nature.
Today I decided there was only one thing to do in a heart break situation and that was to get the violin out, and play pizzicato with my teeth!
And on violin today we have the one and only Morris the cat!
I had such fun it took my mind of my broken heart and helped me to see sense. I don’t want a relationship, I’m a free and independent spirit! I like being a lone ranger and doing my own thing, I was stupid to even consider the idea, so it is a good thing that Gyspy does not want another date 🙂
So I spent the rest of my Caturday playing and having fun like the brilliant bachelor I am!
Last night was my first ever date and I had a brilliant time! My date was with the beautiful lady cat from down the street and her name is Gypsy.
First of all I had to prepare myself so I cleaned my Tuxedo earlier in the day so that I would be looking my best for the date.
Cleaning my Tuxedo fur, this cat aims to please!
I take much pride in my appearance.
At 8 o’clock I went outside to meet the gorgeous gypsy and she looked purrfect! She was wearing a new collar that Santa Paws had given her and I thought that it really complimented her eyes.
This is the moment I walked out of my door and found her waiting on the balcony.
It was raining very heavily so we decided it would be best for us to have our date on my balcony. It was very romantic! My human brought out some treats for us to share.
Eating treats on the balcony.
I enjoyed some treats on the balcony seat and asked Gyspy to join me but she was too shy.
After our treats I insisted that Gypsy sit in the best and most comfortable chair while I sat near her below the chair. I am a proud gentlecat and did not want to make Gyspy feel uncomfortable by getting too close to her too soon. We were both quite shy and nervous but the conversation soon started to flow. We chatted about our favourite food, favourite lounge positions and also about what qualities we look for in a close companion. After the conversation we watched some humans who walked by.
Gyspy approaching the best chair on the balcony.
Isn’t she lovely!
Gypsy looking at me, I hope that she was admiring me.
There was a moment when it felt awkward and we didn’t know what to say but then…
We started chatting and had a lovely long conversation together.
I thought I heard someone approach…
I did and it was humans we watched them, they were very fascinating!
Gypsy then decided it was time for her to go home 😦 I asked her if we could have another date and she replied that she would very much like to and that she will swing by my house again sometime soon for a second date.
Gypsy come back! I miss you already!
Gypsy has gone, when will I see her again?!
I now have a big crush on Gypsy but she hasn’t been back today to see me and I have been looking out of my window all day hoping that she’ll swing by or that I’ll get a glimpse of her. Maybe it is too soon or maybe she’s just not interested in me, perhaps Tuxedo’s aren’t her thing, what if she’s on a date with Ginge right now instead of me?! I’m going crazy!
Tonight I wished upon a star that Gypsy will come back soon and that we will have a second date.
Hello to all of my friends and happy new year to you all! I wish you all a happy 2014 with lots of luck and good times.
It has been a little while since I came on here. First of all last weekend I was not well 😦 I felt very lethargic and un-interested in my food, even treats! My humans took me to that awful place…the vets! I was prodded and poked (with a thermometer up my rear end! how awful!) and found to have a high temperature so the vet gave me two horrible injections 😦 After a few days I felt back to my normal self so luckily it was nothing serious. Then after all of that once I had recovered I couldn’t get onto the computer because the humans were busy doing work and things on it all of the time. So I have had to wait until today to tell you all about my ordeal.
Now on to better news…tonight I have a date with my friend Gypsy!woohoo! I can’t wait! So I can not stay on here for long today as I have to go and clean my tuxedo and make myself look handsome. I will write about it tomorrow and let you all know if there is any romance between us tonight! And of course tomorrow I will also check in on all of my fellow blogger friends and see what you have all been up to.
