If it fits I sits

My mum brought me a little boudoir chair for my bedroom the other day. Before it was even in the house, Schrodi was trying to sit on it in the driveway, but now it is ensconced in the bedroom, he gave it a serious baptism by sleeping on it for several hours. I wouldn’t have […]

The picture says it all….

I was in the kitchen preparing lunch. I laid out a plate of home made falafels for immediate consumption beside the curry and onion bhajis we were going to have for dinner (luckily the latter two were frozen in a box). I turned away to look at something on my Surface, and when I looked […]

The grass is always greener…

I was trying to come up with an apt analogy for why the things we can’t get are always more desirable than the ones presented to us. I’m not sure the grass one is exact but the principal of the saying seems to apply to cats as much as humans… To say that we don’t […]

Cushions, curtains, covers, cats

To make my bedroom match my new office, I got a new duvet set and curtains. Then I made some matching cushion covers and also tie backs for the curtains. Finally I covered the seat of my bedroom chair in matching fabric. It looks quite nice, and I am pleased to say that it is […]

Cats in the woods

As I said the other day, we have builders in at the moment, and this afternoon with the work being quite noisy and the weather beautiful, I thought I would walk right down to the back of our property (about quarter of a mile) and sit by the Donich with a book. Just as I […]

Schrodi and the washing

There is something about cats and clean laundry. Yesterday I stripped the beds, washed the sheets and piled them on the bed ready to be ironed. I then went to have a break and a cup of coffee. Fifteen minutes later on my return Schrodi had found the pile of sheets and clothes and settled […]

Two cats, one bed

Some time ago R bought the lads an electric heated bed. He only got one because we were not sure how well it would go down with them (I once bought them a very very expensive double-decker wicker bed which they wouldn’t touch), and once it was apparent that it was very popular, it hardly […]

A new bed….

R saw something he couldn’t resist on the Internet the other day and bought it for the boys… It is a cat bed with a built in ‘electric blanket’. I was a bit dubious because a lot of the time when you buy them something expensive they won’t touch it, but Schrodi found it almost […]

Cats and Sheets

There is something about new freshly washed sheets that cats love. Yesterday I changed our bed – and they were both on it within ten minutes and made royal pains of themselves all night. Today I prepared a bed for J who is coming to look after them this weekend. I turned my back for […]

Fun in the Snow

More heavy snow overnight. Early this morning R and I cleared the drive which was quite a major task as there was about five inches on it and it is over 70m long and on quite a steep slope. We do know from previous bitter experience though that if we let it build up at […]
