Waiting on Wednesday
This picture tells a sad story.
All those weeks this summer that my mum was stuck in this blue chair with her broken leg up, playing with her laptop, watching daytime TV and providing a lovely comfortable lap for Dr. Eric to help heal her leg through the power of purrs...
And what do we see now?
The blue chair is still there. The other chair she was using as a footstool is still there. The laptop is still there. And the loyal kitty is still there. But no mum.
She is off at school, hobbling around on one crutch and ranting at her new class all day until she gets them trained up to her satisfaction. She is off out all day, failing to provide me with a lap. It's just like the bad old days before the Summer of the Stay-At-Home Mum with the Broken Leg.
Suppose I'll just keep the blue chair warm until she gets home...sigh.

Paws It Forward!
My mum is just not making the effort to help me blog as often as I want to. And I'm not accepting her excuses about having to train her new class and getting tired by hobbling around on crutches at school, etc, etc. The least she can do after maiming me with the scissors (see previous post) is to help me blog! (And give me treats, obviously).
Anyway, the good news is that my injury is healing up nicely. I nearly had to go to the V-E-T because I kept licking at the cut on my hip and making it bleed again - in fact my mum had actually phoned and made an appointment at the V-E-T's! Of course, when I heard that I immediately stopped licking it and left it alone. Luckily for me, when she got home from work that evening my injury looked much better so she decided to cancel the V-E-T's appointment. Now I have a big bald patch with a scar in the middle of it, but it is healing OK now and the floof will soon grow back over it. I think scars are very Macho Kitty anyway. Thanks to all my friends for your concern over my well-being!
More good news! Look what I got in the post this week!
It's a parcel from Milo and Alfie! They sent it to me and my mum as part of the "Paws It Forward" gift-giving. Wasn't that kind of them? Here I am sniffing at the goodies.
Look what I got! Two different flavours of treats, a packet of mousies, some yummy foods...(check out my whiskers in this picture too, looking furry whiskery!)
...and a REAL seagull fev-ver from the beach at Sidmouth, previously played with by Milo and Alfie so it smelt furry furry interesting!
They also sent some goodies for my mum - a pretty candle and some coasters and a funny book with cartoons about kitties!
We are furry grateful for the kind Paws It Forward gifts from Milo, Alfie and their mum, and we want to say thank you and also send our best wishes to their mum Jan, who is going into hospital tomorrow to have her poorly leg treated (and we know it is no fun to have a poorly leg).
Many Purrs to them!
P.S. I will be sending some gifts to another kitty to continue the Paws It Forward chain, but I need to decide who to send them to first!

I am injured, and thus not looking my best on this Mancat Monday. Yesterday my mum was grooming me - she has been so busy in the last week coping with going back to work that my grooming regime has been affected. As you know, I have a very floofy, double-thickness coat and if I don't get enough combing, I get mats and knots in it. Well, my mum found out yesterday that (due to her neglect) I had a big enormous mat on my left hip. She combed and combed at it - I didn't really enjoy this but I tolerated it, even though it was a little bit painful with the comb pulling my furrs. But she still couldn't get all the mat out, so she resorted to trying to cut it out, and she SNIPPED MY SKIN!!! There was blood!!! And yes, she did feel VERY VERY GUILTY and apologise a lot. My humans are keeping an eye on the injury. It is not bad enough to go to the v-e-t as long as it heals up all right, but we need to make sure it does not get infected or anything. Please keep your paws crossed that my injury heals up soon, that my mum continues to ply me with extra treats to try to work off her extreme feelings of guilt, and that I do not have to go to the v-e-t.
Happy Mancat Monday!

Oh woe is me. My mum has taken her leg and her crutches and gone back to school. No longer do I have a permanent daytime lap and human attention 24/7, it's back to the bad old days of guarding the house in the daytime and waiting for the humans to come home and feed me. Suppose I'll just have to while away the hours doing this:
To make matters worse, that evil intruder kitty Marmite is back after leaving me in peace for a while. Normality is restored...
