Don’t challenge cats….

I was getting a bit melancholic about our cats the other day. They are now nearly thirteen and I was thinking that they were slowing down and getting old. So I mentioned to R that Schrodi hadn’t had a mouse in ages and Tora wasn’t going off to the village any more, so they were […]

Cats and Cards

I put a row of Christmas cards on the mantelpiece this week, and, perhaps foolishly, decorated it with some tinsel. Today I have had both cats up there. Their modus operandi is to push all the cards onto the floor and then attack the tinsel. I don’t mind this too much with the cards but […]

Vet Time

We’d been a bit worried about Tora and Schrodi not having had their vaccinations or checkups since last August, with the problem being that the nearest vets to Lochgoilhead are either Helensburgh or Dunoon. R and J will both tell you that the cats do not like long car journeys (well let’s face it, they […]

The Deeds of Schrodel

While I was thinking about the cats tonight, I suddenly remembered something amusing I wrote several years ago while I was still a corporate drone who dreaded every day at work. One day I really really didn’t feel like getting up, but Schrodi persuaded me – this was how. You can tell from the description […]

In which Schrodi is helpful

I went to make some new curtains for R today. Schrodi was sound to the world on a chair, so I laid out the material to cut on the lounge floor. Literally one second later he was wide awake and on the material giving me all his assistance. Probably just as well I had him […]

Named and Shamed

Since I took these photographs this morning he has just come in with yet another one. Alive and intact this time. I managed to catch it and put it outside – it went scooting off into the undergrowth as fast as its little legs would take it. For such a sweet fluffy little fuzzball – […]

Master class in cute

I think I will give up my job as a security tester and live off the income my cats could make by giving masterclasses in cute. My parents went home yesterday and I stripped their beds. Ten minutes later I came back with the clean sheets and Schrodi had ensconced himself in the pile of […]

Who’d have cats….

As I’ve mentioned on numerous occasions, we have two snow Bengal cats – Schrodi (aka the good one) and Tora (aka the bad one). Schrodi is a typical ‘cute ball of fur’ type cat. He likes eating, sleeping (preferably on a knee) and is basically a little friend to all the world (this is an […]

Midsummer Flowers

The garden isn’t quite as colourful now as it was back in May/June. In particular it is missing the wow factor of the primulas which were out in force for more than three months but are past now. We still have some nice ones in July though – the hydrangeas are looking lovely, as is […]

Following on from my previous post

Bag all packed and clean, folded, ironed clothes placed in it. Reason for this being that last time we were going away, Schrodi slept on the clean folded ironed clothes and they had to be redone. Well this time that didn’t happen – Tora just cut out the middle man and slept in the bag […]
