Mostly about cats and cleaning.


 Last week was a cleaning up week, mainly because of my sweet little cat Leeroy, she bought me a nice mouse gift while I was on the phone to my sister, I didn't notice so her idea was if you don't want it I will just let it go but I just didn't want it to go die under the lounges so I moved them to check it out and well you may as well give it all a good clean and rearrange the room, no mouse was found hope it found its way outside.
 This is now my sit and doze in front of the tellie chair, the beer fairy says I don't snore if sitting up so he thinks it is a good idea.


 I often pain my cats,

 I covered this chair in the corner, the other black one I will cover too the stuff they use to cover them wears and tears apart so I will get a few years more out of them and they are less sticky in summer.
 This room also got a good clean as Bo Peek uses it when he stays over but he is away in NZ visiting family for a couple of weeks.
 Also my painting and sewing room.
 My son and daughter in law stayed last night.
 They bought me lots of chocolate and other nice eatables for mothers day as I will not see them for a few weeks now.

 Drummy comb is very pale at the moment l looked it up on the internet, could be caused by lack of iron or poor health as she is getting on a bit, maybe old age too, but I've been giving her meat as the snails and insects are in short supply coming into winter, this is a lamb bone which she is very fond of .





 A bit of  a mess in the dolls house Leeroty was checking it out maybe the mouse was there visiting the dolls.

 My loungeroom in disarray
 Here is the little honey,
I watched a show about cats the other day it said you must blink to greet them and never stare, well this one stares all the time and when I  blinked at her she just stared back.



 But this is just a evil look, I wonder what I did to deserve it.

    1. Thank you but I always have trouble with painting cats they always look cranky not cute and cuddly maybe because mine are cranky looking.

  3. You are getting a filthy look, probably because you did not appreciate the lovely gift brought to you.

  4. I like your dozing chair, I've always wanted a wing chair, I like the side supports for the head, makes for comfortable napping.
    Leeroy probably blames you for the loss of his mouse.
    I've heard about that blinking thing with cats, you blink slowly, showing that you are not afraid to close your eyes, if your cat blinks back, it shows he trusts you. Sometimes Angel blinks back but mostly not.

    1. It's a good dozing chair, I sleep well in it .
      The wings are pretty good too.
      I guess my cats don't trust me,

    1. Well I know it wasn't eaten they are to well fed to eat anything furry not like the chicken she eats red back spiders, I ve seen her do that.
      No smell so the little fellow must have got away.

    1. She stopped laying about a year ago so I think that makes her about 5 or 6 years old I think.
