He's Coming Home!

My Best Pet's on his way home! He'll be here in an hour!
I'm waiting for him...

He's better be furry sorry for leaving us all for so long.  
And he's not getting his spot on the sofa back, or his side of the bed.  They're mine.  

Roll your mouse over the pictures for Guido and Target's secret thoughts. We'll post on Facebook when he's back!

Target and Guido: Someone Is Packing!

Target: There's PACKING going on!  I was furry upset until I realised it's Tman going away.  That's ok.  Mummy Cat is staying. She'll look after me.

Guido: I don't like it...

Target: I bag T-man's side of the bed!

Guido: I want him to stay.

Target: When he goes, Mummy Cat will be lonely.  That means more squizzles for me!

Guido: Hmmm....

Target: And I bag his spot on the sofa too!

Guido: But....

Target: You'll miss out on squizzles because Tman is your Best Pet but I will be fine!

Guido: Actually...

Target: I'll miss him but he won't be away long.

Guido: When I was on Desk Duty I heard the Pet Skype to her mum and she said that while Tman is away, she'll be eating lots of salad.

Target: What?  Chikkun salad?  Tuna salad?

Guido: No.  Salad salad. No chikkun. No tuna.

Target: I don't believe it.

Guido: She wrote an email about being too fat... She said you're a bit too fat too. What's a Diet, Target? Is that a fun game you and your Mummy Cat are going to play?

Target: Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Tman don't gooooooooooooooooooooo!

Run your mouse over the images to see what the cats are thinking.

An Exciting Week

We've had an exciting week.  First, we have new neighbours.  Target and Guido watched with horror as they revealed a large dog.  A Doberman.  Guido snuck back into the house when he saw it, but Target sat on the roof of the Beetle and gave it hard stares. It worked, because the dog appears to be friendly and quiet.

Then our friend Happy from across the street managed to open a window and go on walkabout. He's an indoor cat so we were all worried about him.  We all searched the streets, looking for him.  An agonising 16 hours later, he came home, safe and sound. Guido and Target had Feline Greenies to celebrate.

Then our taps ran dry.  We haven't figured out yet precisely why, but it seems a rogue factory up country messed up the rivers. The cats were fine, but the humans a bit whiffy.

After three days, our taps began to run again, but it also rained.  Actually, it poured. Our street flooded, our doormat floated away, and we were a half centimeter away from having a flood in the living room. Guido and Target sat on the sofa, watching the rising water cover the garden and run up to the house. We were all relieved when the rain stopped just in time.

Today everything seems to be all right.  The cats are sitting on the roof of the Beetle, watching out for dogs, storms, and floods. They're also preening quietly because our neighbours next door and across the road keep walking past and saying, "Hello, sayangs!  Aren't you handsome cats?"

Yeah, they are!  And we're all hoping we have a nice, quiet week.
