It has been a mixed weekend in the cat blogosphere. We are all sad because lovely ginger Tilly has gone to the Bridge. We are all happy because it looks like little KC is going to be all right after her terrible illness. There is always something changing. Sometimes our kitty friends don't feel very well, like KC, Mittens and Brendan. Sometimes our kitty friends have to get used to new cats in the house, like Mu Shue, Bubbles, The Rat and Sooner. It is good that we have so many online friends who are kind and supportive.
It has been fairly busy here. My dad has been away for the weekend on a trip with Uncle Sim, so I have been keeping my mum company. Yesterday she slept late (it being a Saturday) and when she woke up I was all snuggled up asleep with her. She thought that my dad must have fed me early when he left, otherwise I would have been jumping all over her asking for breakfast. So she was surprised when she got downstairs and found out I had not been fed. She thought I must be ill if I wasn't demanding my food, but in fact I just fancied snuggling more than food at that moment. I scoffed my late breakfast, so she knew I wasn't ill!
It has been mild and autumnal here, but this morning we had a big storm. We got woken up by the rain beating on the windows, and then it turned into hailstones, which were even noisier. Then there was some thunder and lightning. I haven't been outside much this week, it has been too wet in the garden for my tastes.
At lunchtime today, after the rain stopped, I was looking out of the window at the garden and I saw something shocking! The Tabby Terror and one of the Small Black Kitties were sitting on the shed roof again. They were washing each other in a very conspiratorial way. To my horror, my mum walked down the garden towards them and tried to talk to them (I was pressed up against the window mewing Chase them away, mum!) The Tabby Terror backed off from her but the Small Black Kitty came and patted her hand with his paw, so she...she...(I can't say it)...she gave him some of my treats! If she behaves like that, how are the Evil Intruder Kitties going to know that they are Not Welcome in My Garden?
Today I made my mum stop doing school work and get on with adding new kitties to the Gorgeous Gingers page. There are lots more members of the GGs now, including Nitro, Ace and Skittles and Mu Shue. We also moved sweet Tilly from the GG page to the Rainbow Gingers. We hope we don't have to move any of our other kitty friends there for a while. Purrs to all for a peaceful week.
