Day 13

Today was gloriously sunny - but too cold to open the bedroom window.

After my kibbles Maid took me outside and sat with me on her knee on a wicker chair under the pergola. Then with a fine comb we had a really good grooming session, a sort of spring clean for my fur. I feel like a real beauty queen as my fur ripples in the breeze. I was amazed how much fur came out. Enough to make six kittens!

We then sat in the cold sunshine as Maid had a coffee break and told me how she fell in love with me when she first saw me and is so happy that I’ve allowed her to be my personal staff. I must admit I’m very happy here at Tom Cat Towers, even though at time standards can be somewhat lacking.

Last year I fell in the pond and had to be rescued so I shall be wary of the water, but it will be nice to sit out with a bowl of kibbles and my staff as the sun goes down as Maid drinks that funny red wine stuff. That always gives her a headache next morning.

Today was also ‘Mewsletter Day’. I hate Mewsletters, Maid turns on her computer, pours a glass of red wine then sits down to read the screen, and attention to me and my needs plummets to zero for hours as she reads, comments and giggles. I am not amused. Mewsletters should be banned! 

Maid’s version

Dumpty is looking fabulous. I took her outside and groomed her under the pergola. Her pelt is looking really healthy and even has a bit of a gloss on it. She does like being groomed. Then we just sat and looked at the garden for a while. I let her go and she waddled straight back into the house and onto the bed for her kibbles. No intention of exploring the garden at all. Totally not curious! When I put her out on her static lead by the pond in summer, she has no inclination to look around her or be curious about what’s in the pond; she just sits there waiting to be brought back into the house again. Complete air-head!

Today I got my regular Mewsletter; the missive compiled by the Mewsers, a group of very intellectual tom cats in Kent who run the  website. It’s very funny, and I enjoy the articles and picking up tips and hints. It’s very well written and takes me some time to read through it all. It’s the best freebie newsletter on the market for moggies and their owners with lots of sound advice and fun!

Freelance-felines also contribute articles, so maybe Dumpty may put paw to the keyboard and go into print?!

A Cats Purr

"Cats make one of the most satisfying sounds in the world: they purr ...

A purring cat is a form of high praise, like a gold star on a test paper. It is reinforcement of something we would all like to believe about ourselves - that we are nice."
