There seem to be lots of cats in the news lately. This cat was in the news for doing something a bit silly - apparently she used to live in London like me, but one day she decided to jump on a lorry and go for a ride, and now she is in Devon (nearer to where Eric and Flynn live than to where my Devon Grandma lives) and she is having some trouble telling the humans her address. I hope she manages to get home soon. Maybe she was trying to visit Eric and Flynn?

It's My 2nd Blogoversary!
What's more, I just noticed that this is actually my 222nd post in total, which seems rather appropriate for a 2nd blogoversary, don't you think?
In honour of my blogoversary, here's a special moving photo of me in my blogoversary outfit. (As you can see, Her Majesty The Queen was kind enough to lend me something special to wear for the day). I hope the picture works and you can see the full effect!
Here's to the next year...

My Presents, part 2

My Presents, part 1
I got so many presents! I got presents from my Mericky cousins Fred and Barney (the cats who own my Uncle Sim; I promise to blog about them sometime), I got presents from my new Mericky cousin Baxter (about whom I also really must blog), I got presents from my own humans, of course, I got my Secret Paws presents from Kashim, I got a box of stuff from Monty and a lovely snuggle from Queen Snickers which was my prize from Opus and Roscoe's raffle competition.
My mum says she will not need to buy me treats for months and months. And (from various different sources mentioned above) I have six whole bags of my favourite Greenies, which as you know they do not make in the UK so I haven't had any for ages. I am very happy about this.
Here are some photos of me opening some of my presents:
Here I am rubbing myself on the box that my Secret Paw, Kashim, sent me, all the way from Vienna! It smelt really interesting.
Look at all this stuff! Lots and lots of treats I never saw before with German writing on them. One of them was dried fish which really smelt good. And toys too! I am spoilt for choice. Thank you VERY much, Kashim, you are an amazing Secret Paw!
This is the box that Monty sent me. Look at those Greenies! Oh, er, and as soon as my mum unpacked them I climbed straight into the box. Isn't that a great box? I really like it a lot. I expect Monty knew that I would. Monty sent my mum some treats too, I think she was very happy about that. She has been eating chocolate-covered cherries ever since...
And inside the box Monty had used these carrier bags for packaging - I jumped on them and started trying to kill them. This picture is a bit fuzzy because I was rolling around playing. We thought even the bags were interesting because they came from shops we don't have here.
Thank you so much, Monty! You are very generous.
Next time I will put up some photos of the snuggle Queen Snickers sent for me. I feel very lucky to have all these gifts.

Happy New Year!
Phew, I am so glad to be back in my own house. I mean, it has been interesting visiting Cornish Auntie and Devon Grandma, but I have had FOUR long car journeys! On Friday my humans lured me out from under Cornish Auntie's bed with cheese and greenies and threw me in the Evil Cat Carrier and drove me back to Devon Grandma's house, where we stayed for two nights. I got lots more fuss from Devon Grandma and Uncle Sim and Auntie Jan. Then on Sunday my humans put everything back in the car AGAIN and said it was time to go home, but I wasn't sure if I believed them that we were really going home this time, or just to yet another place, so I hid behind Devon Grandma's sofa where I like to sleep because there is a radiator there and it is very cosy. The humans tried to lure me out with food again but it didn't work because I had already caught sight of the Evil Cat Carrier lying in wait with its door open. Eventually they ganged up on me and moved the sofa and managed to catch me as I fled into the next room. I wasn't at all happy about another journey so I meowed most of the way back to London (it takes about four hours from Devon Grandma's house back to London) although I fell asleep going round the M25. If anyone saw a little blue car with Scratchy Mouse lying on the parcel shelf looking out of the rear window, that was us! Finally we were home and I was SO happy to be in my own house at last. But then I was unhappy because I was hungry and it took my humans ages to unload the car and my food bowls were almost the last thing to be unloaded so I waited in the kitchen going "Feed me, feed me, don't you know I have been through a terrible ordeal?"
But I am home now. And my food bowls are home. And my litter box is home. And my Scratchy Mouse is home. And all is well. (My mum says my luggage takes up a lot of space in the car, but you should see all the presents and stuff they brought back with them!)
When we got home there was a lot of post waiting for us including some more Christmas cards for me from Derby and from Missy and KC and from The Meezers and from The Tower Hill Mob. I felt very lucky.
This morning when we were all still in bed snoozing after our journey, the postman rang the front door bell at early o'clock and he had three more parcels! And two of them were for me! One was a parcel from Monty which he had been worried was lost, and the other one was my Secret Paws presents which were from Kashim and Othello! You would not BELIEVE how many toys and treats were inside those two parcels! Thank you so much, Monty, Kashim and Othello.
I have lots of photos of me on my travels to share, and some photos of me opening my presents, but will post those later. I have LOTS to tell! We just saw in the New Year here in London; my humans had champagne and I had Feline Greenies. Now I need to nap. As you can see, Scratchy Mouse and I are furry happy to be home.
