smarty-pants cat

oh hi,

I see you are working on another puzzle.

would you like some help?

give me a minute, I'm thinking.

I know the answer!

smarty-pants Angel.

Wednesday's Words on a Friday

I love my cat (also titled: the bad bits) (also titled: a whinge)

I really do. He's soft and warm and cuddly and he loves me. But he's driving me crazy a lot of the time.

He sits inside the shower cubicle and miaows. And miaows and miaows and miaows......I know what he wants, he wants me to get in there and play with him.

It's my own fault, I'm the one who taught him that playing tug of war with a flannel through the gap under the shower screen is fun, but I can only do it for a few minutes at a time.
Half an hour at the most, then my knees and back have had enough.
Angel can play like this for hours.

I taught him to roll a small rubber ball around in there, it will bounce off the walls and screen and roll back to him so he can roll it again. At first he was happy to do this, now he prefers it if I sit on the closed toilet and roll the ball around for him.
Well, no. Not happening. Not for long anyway.
So I leave the bathroom when I've had enough and he sits there and cries.
I scoop him up and bring him out with me…

the cat sat on the mat

Everyone remember that?
The very first thing you might have learned to read and write at school?

With winter coming soon here in Australia, I decided I needed a door mat for inside the front door so I didn't track wet shoes all through the flat when coming in from the rain. For the past two years I've had a raggedy piece of old towel on the floor in winter.

I spotted a blue one in amongst all the beige and black and bought it, because I have the same blue in the curtains.

I put it down on the floor and about two seconds later Angel claimed it for his own.

ooh! a new scratching place! (I'm discouraging that every time I catch him at it)

ah, the sun came out again. Nice!

again with the camera, geez mum.

I'll just take a nap now.


still sleeping. What a life.

Much like mine actually, a short burst of work, then a nice long nap.
Retirement is pretty good.
