Little Furry Dictator

We were meowed out of bed at 5AM this morning by Au who demanded we feed him "rost chikkun".

Our senior cat may be just a foot tall and weigh just under 5kg but he has a will of iron.

I was talking to the chicken butcher by 7AM and Au was tucking into his first breakfast an hour later.

If there's such a thing as rebirth, I think the nicest people will be reborn to live the life of an Au.  We should all be so lucky.

PS if you like happy stories about cats, check out the Katz Tales books. Guaranteed to make you laugh!

Mysterious Visitor

Target jumped up on the bench yesterday afternoon and immediately puffed up like a blowfish. I went out to rescue him from whatever was scaring him, and guess what I saw?

Coal the Tuxie Cat sitting in our cat carrier!  Remember Coal, the most expensive tuxie on the street?  He lives across the road from us now.

However, Tuxie isn't at his home during daytime at the moment as his mum and dad are working on the front of the house. He avoids the construction chaos by coming to our house to play and to hang out.

Guido often sleeps in this carrier, and as they are friends, I guess Tuxie thought Guido wouldn't mind.

Target likes Tuxie too, but he's a scaredy cat who gets a fright if anything unusual happens - like a leaf falling on the ground without 2 weeks advance notice.

Once he realised who it was, our little furbrain was fine.  But the second Tuxie went home, Target went to sit in the carrier - just to show it is his, I think!

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble

Au has his hungry days where he eats 4 square meals before lunch, and then there are days when he eats a reasonable amount but is more interested in playing games or hanging out on his Command Chair.

Guido enjoys his meals and will try anything he doesn't recognise (sweetcorn, melon, quiche, brie...... and that was just this weekend) but he isn't greedy.

Target lives for food.  He has his own breakfast and will then snack with Au, share with Guido and clean up after both.  Same at lunch and dinner.

This is a typical scene.  Mouse over for private cat thoughts.

Guido is given a bowl of steak at lunch because he had a small breakfast.

Guido isn't hungry - because he ate with Cole the Tuxie Cat across the street, I find out later.

So Target gobbles the lot.  See those expanding stripes!

We Have A New Sofa

We have a new sofa!  It's slate grey which means the cat fur will show up beautifully, but it's very comfy.

When it arrived, Target snuck up for a cautious sniff.

Then he hopped on for a good look about...
But guess who got there first?

In an effort to show off his skills, How To Dominate The Sofa, Guido had already claimed the sofa as his very own.

Au grew up with the old sofa, and by the way he stalks past the new one with a hoity toity tail, we can tell he's not in the mood for change.  We've let him keep the Command Chair part of the set that he appropriated when he was just a kitten.  It stands in it's usual place so that Au can keep his creature comforts.
