I am now COMPLETELY OUT OF GREENIES!
Hideous. Anyway, things might be improving a little. My mum has finished most of her start of term paperwork and today (Saturday) she did no schoolwork at all. Even better, it was warm and sunny - we haven't had much sunshine this summer. My mum has bought a second-hand bike for cycling to school and getting fit (ha ha) - so we spent most of today out in the garden. My dad was tinkering with the bike, my mum was doing some gardening (the sunflowers are out now) and I was mostly sunbathing, apart from when I had to chase out one Evil Intruder Kitty. Also today I have had lots and lots of laptime so I am feeling a bit happier. My mum bought me some inferior cat treats and I am trying to be brave and hope that Uncle Sim will send me some Greenies soon. I am wasting away!
As it is Caturday, I thought I would post pictures of some cats my mum and dad saw in Norway this summer while I was in the kitty jail. My mum said they saw lots of cats in Norway.
This cat was in a garden on the island of Bygdøy, just outside Oslo. My mum and dad were walking to the Folkemuseum at the time to see the old Norwegian houses. We don't know why this cat shares his garden with a penguin, but lots of people in Norway seem to have sculptures in their gardens.
This cat was just round the corner from the first one. He was kind enough to lead my humans down the road and show them where the Folkemuseum was.
This cat was in Bergen, living in some old almshouse cottages just opposite the Leprosy Museum (!!) in a cobbled courtyard. He was very dignified and handsome.
Hang on, this isn't a cat! Oh wait, my mum says this is a rescued baby seal called Linus who was at the Bergen Aquarium being taught to catch fish. She wants me to include him, even though he isn't a cat, just because he's kind of cute. All right then!
To make up for all the neglect I have had suffering, my mum says I can hold a contest really soon! I have got some good prizes and I am excited about this, so look out for further details!
Today is the second sunny day in a row for us, and we are making the most of it in the garden sunning our furrs.
Those look like some nice kitties that your Beans met in Norway.
Can't wait to hear about the contest.
Tiki, Tavi, Cody, Camie and Miss Jade
But we are looking forward to the contest! We love contests!!! And do not miss to come over and accept the Dare that we have up right now!!!!!
What a fine collection of cats! Our favorite is the meowing one at the top. We want to play with him.
We also want to play with you, maybe we can meet up in a dream some time?
Abby & Stygia
Be strong until the Greenies arrive!
You know your evil intruder? Well we have him here too! The same one!
Trixie has been screaming at him all year and now Pyewacket has started crying and yelling at him through the window.
Mom can't cope with two of us doing it so she took someone's advice and got a spray bottle with ammonia and went round to the outside of the window sills and puffed a little on them.
Our windows are shut so we don't smell it. Mom hasn't seen the evil intruder now for two days.
The noise we made as we tried to attack it through the window was too upsetting and too scary for mom.
We hope it stays in its own yard for a while! We heard that cats don't like to be where there is an ammonia smell. Oh and it fights other nice neighbourhood cats in our yard. Even a 17 year old one!
The Norwegian kitties (and seal) sure are cute!
i gave you an award on my blog. i hope it makes you feel better!
