Wet cat

Like a stone hung from a chain, I can tell the weather by our cat.

Wet cat, it’s raining

Cat looks white, snowing

Cat covered in white dots? Hailing

Cat hot to the touch? Sunny

Cat in a cloud? Foggy

Cat with hair on end? Windy or angry!

OK, silly post! I wrote it because the cat just came in and he’s as wet as an otter in a stream (exaggeration)! ❤️

Poddling cat

Two front paws kneading my leg ‘poddling’ making little holes in my skin. Like I’m a mother cat and he’s comforting himself and wanting to relax. It’s so sweet that he does this. He does this every night before he goes to sleep on my lap. That’s when he settles down with his eyes closed and starts purring even more. I feel loved. I know cats can be pests sometimes, but this one is soft and friendly.

Squashed – by a cat!

The cats on my lap. Firmly attached. I can’t move without pushing him off. My leg is going numb! He doesn’t normally stay this long, but I think he’s keeping warm. It’s quite overcast and cool for a May evening.

As soon as I wrote this my hubby walked past, knocked my foot and the cat jumped off my lap and ran upstairs! Just proves nothing stays the same, now I’m missing the cat, and my warm leg is cold!

Ouch

He got a bit of a scratch on his nose from somewhere. I’ve wiped it with some washing up liquid and salt water. He’s a big cat but gentle. He doesn’t fight much, just stays still and sometimes gets scratched. The look in his eyes is very loving. I think he’s a really sweet cat, but slightly bonkers! He purrs loudly at my other two cats and they all get on together. X

Stop bringing me presents!

I don’t want a mouse

Or a frog

Bought in alive

To scurry or croak.

Caught with a fishing net

For goldfish

And put out again.

I don’t want that bee!

Keep it for yourself

Or a wasp

You surreptitiously

Sneak in

For my pleasure

Take that shrew away

At least hedgehogs are spiky

So they won’t be dropped

At my feet

With a smug purr!

There you go!

Here’s my rent!

Curled up

Drawing in biro of the cat curled up between us. Normally he’s beside us by now but he came in, ate and then went back out again.

In other news, another cat is coming in to eat! I heard my boy cat making purring noises and turned to look. A cat that is mostly black with a very thin white mark on its nose, had come in and was eating my cats food! It’s thin so I didn’t chase it out. Its the third time I’ve seen it. The other two times was outside. I’m not sure we need another cat!
