5 Weird Things About My Humans:
Sorry for the delay
Velvet and Arty
I don't like the sound of courgettes or zucchini either. Mom says they're yukky but they grow like crazy here in the summer and lots of people eat them.
My human pet also has a hard time buying shoes because of her big feet. Maybe our human pets can commiserate together!
hullo, fat eric! how nice of you to come visit our blog all the way from the U.K.--thank you!! yes, i weigh a fair-ish 23 lbs, so we are definitely in the same class, you and i! superb, are we not? regal? majestic? oh--all of those and more! can we add you to our list of poodin' friends?
tee-hee---zucchini. lots of beans here grow them, then never eat them. sometimes our He and She come home from work to find brown paper bags full of zucchini abandonded at our door. no one ever 'fesses up who left 'em. poor, orphaned zucchini. and then, in the dark of night, sometimes those self-same bags quietly find their ways to other doorsteps--He and She don't like 'em, either;-)
you are lucky to have such a lovely back garden, and so many hidey-holes. so many cats have lived in this house so many, many years that He and She can always find us. they know 'em all. no fair!
one time long ago, uncle eeker (who only nelson can remember) got sandwiched between the outer and inner windows in the spare bedroom. he had been sitting in the sill and accidentally kicked the release that let the inner window down. They could hear him calling, but couldn't see him (for the curtains over the window). finally, He went outdoors and walked around the house, and there was uncle eeker, glaring angrily from behind the pane!
you and shaggy and i all sleep just alike, on our backs and waving our paws in the air. we should start a club, or maybe a photo album of our favorite poses!
i like to lick bean hairs, too, but He and The Boy (when he visits) don't have much to lick, and She doesn't let me lick her long hairs much 'cause she's afraid i might get a problem if i swallows it and it comes out the other end instead of in a hairball. uncle eeker had that problem with christmas tinsel strands, once. they called him "the silver flash" well into the New Year, poor fellow.
speaking of calling names, what nicknames do you have? the male beans call me Ed, the Edmeister, Sir Edmund the Rotund, Edtundo, Fat Ed, Edboy, and You Hairy Grease-blob. how demeaning. but She just calls me Ed, and when She cuddles me and lets me knead her hair, She hugs me tight, and whispers that i am Her good boy, her bestest boy, and the Very Best Edmund that Ever Was! and i'm certain that i am!!
come see us again when you have a chance--we'll be glad to see you!
Oh an tell your Mum that maybe she might want to teach the brats, uh children, about the board game Senet in ancient Egypt. It can even be found online. It am a fun game. Mom let us watch how to play.
Tell your mom thanks for the donation to Ramona's Top Cats! I appreciate it very much. There is still a month to go before the Walk!
It was fun having you visit us for the Torch Relay. I had such a good time at the Lympics!
