How sweet is this

Halfway through making the bed and had to stop because Schrodi was having a kip with/on BooBoo the bear.

What a mess

While I was trying to eat my dinner at the kitchen table this evening, first Schrodi and then Tora decided that a kitchen roll had been creeping up on them and was potentially dangerous. So between the two of them they ripped it to shreds. And then Tora sat in the middle of the devastation […]

Clean Laundry

There is something about clean laundry and cats. I went to do some ironing the other night (mainly as an excuse to watch ‘Breaking Bad’ while I was doing it). I ironed one double duvet cover, put it down on the chair and went to do some towels. Two minutes later, I looked round and […]

A rather testing afternoon

I’ve never been a ‘good’ sleeper, and the problem seems to be getting worse as I get older. Last night the situation was not helped by the cats. First of all Tora insisted on sleeping pressed up against me, then his brother brought in a live rodent (or insectivore possible – R uses the ‘drop […]

Cats in the bed

I was halfway through putting clean sheets on the bed when I stepped out to talk to R for a brief moment. On my return a few seconds later, the bed had been colonized by not one but two cats, both of whom had been sleeping peacefully there for hours and were not pleased at […]

Schrodi has just come in minus his collar for the second time in about six weeks. Just to explain for anyone who hasn’t read the full back story to this blog; our two cats have tracking collars which come from USA ( and enable us to locate them within a range of about half a […]
