I have been an intrepid hunter! I killed a spider and my MH was very pleased with me as she doesn't like them very much.

The spider was in our bath and when my MH is having her shower, she stands in the bath and then she puts on talcum, so I jumped into the bath when I saw this spider, and then when I jumped out again, there were perfectly formed (adorable) little paw prints all over the bathroom carpet.

These made a very nice pattern!

I have just had a normal day today---nipping in and out of the window and playing with my MH, but I disappeared as soon as the awful vacuum cleaner arrived. You would think that by now she would know that I don't like this thing and get rid of it.

I shall have to devise a cunning plan, but if anyone out there knows how to get rid of it, please tell me.

Softly, softly.

I need to tell you that I have been in my house for a whole year now. My humans and me came together a year ago and we have had a lovely time together 'cos they love me and I love them too.

I have trained then very well and all my hard work has paid off 'cos they do the things that I love. I have had a quiet day 'cos the weather isn't very good, but I have had good fun just the same.

My MH was out for a wee while this morning and when she came back, I decided that we would have a wee game and she agreed. We played in the bedroom and it was my favourite game when I hided under the cover on the bed and my MH covered me up and rolled me over and over and I loved it. We played for a long time and then I dived off the bed and raced into my living room where my DH played with me and my toys until I was tired and then I cuddled up on my favourite chair and had a wee nap.

Yes, it is a very good life here on my wee island!

It has been another very good day for this adorable little pussy cat. The weather has been good and I have been out to play lots of times and my humans have been outside a lot too.

My MH told me that Spring was coming and soon all the baby sheeps and cows would start to appear, but she didn't tell me where they appeared FROM----maybe tomorrow! I like it when there are baby sheeps and cows in my fields 'cos I can go and see them and even have a wee chat with them, and that is very good.

We were in the gym again today 'cos the sticky toffee pudding hasn't disappeared yet and I watched for a wee while and then I played on the grass till all the exercising was finished, and then I cuddled up on my MH's knee when she had to sit down on my couch for a rest.

My DH has been outside all day too fixing the guttering on the other side of the house. He did one side before they went away and left me, so now he has the other side to do and he will be all finished. I will be glad when it is all done, 'cos his drill makes a funny noise and I don't really like it.

He promised it would soon be all nice and quiet again, so paws crossed!

A Fun Day

I have had great fun today as I was helping my MH change the bed and that is my very favourite game in the en-tire world. When she opens up the studs on the duvet cover, I nip inside and I hide and she pretends she can't see me until I wag my tail and give the game away. And then I do the same again when she tries to put on the clean one and we start the game all over again and it is great fun and it usually ends up with my MH rubbing my adorable little tummy and making me giggle. Just magic!

We did this for a long time and then we went into the gym. My MH reckons she will need to spend a lot of time in the gym after her wee trip to Glasgow 'cos she ate too many good meals and especially too much sticky toffee pudding which is her very favourite, so I shall need to make sure that she does all her exercises.

The she had a shot on the Wii and by this time I was quite tired, so I just lay and watched her and I liked that too. My DH doesn't need to go into the gym, 'cos he doesn't like puddings so he has been playing on his computer and I watched him too.

So it has been a very good day and I may go out hunting later when the old dears are tucked up in bed.

Everything is back to normal chez Squeak and I am quite amazed at how quickly my humans have settled into my routine again, so I think I must have taught them really well.

I had my gourmet dinner last night and it was delicious and I ate it all up, so I didn't need any chicken, but there is some of that left, so I may try a wee bit tonight. I shall see how I feel.

My humans and their friends have noticed that I am growing up now and I am more a cat than a kitten. I am sleeping more but I still like playing with my MH and do that every day, really just to keep the old dear happy.

It doesn't take much at all!

Normal Service

We all had a long sleep this morning 'cos my humans were a wee bit tired after all their travelling, so I just cuddled up and had a wee sleep too.

I am very happy that they are home again and they brought me some new toys and a gourmet dinner! Now, I get fed very well on all sorts of cat food and sometimes I even get some cat chocolates, but I have never had a gourmet dinner and I am having that tonight when my humans are having chicken. I shall tell you if I liked it, or if I would have preferred the chicken!

It has been a good day and I have been out to play a lot, but I keep coming in to have a cuddle on my MH's lap as I missed that when she was away. I had a wee chat to the sheeps and a cheeky one even came into my garden 'cos the humans forgot to close the gate last night and there is one sheeps out on its own and it came right into my garden and left a big deposit on my grass.

The Boss told my DH to clean it up and he did although he wasn't too pleased.

As I said, normal service is resumed!

Happy News!

They are back! My humans have returned!

My cunning plan didn't work and they went away and left me for a whole week, but they are home and I am a happy puss once again, although I did have a good time when they were away, but they don't know that.

I was well looked after by A. and his brother J. and my MH's friends came in through the day to see me and tickle my adorable little tummy,so all was well but I did miss my humans and I will tell them that later--after I have made them suffer a wee bit.

They told me they had had a good time and they have brought me some presents, so they were thinking about me when they were in Glasgow and I am very happy about that.

So, my dear feline friends, normal service has been resumed chez Squeak and all is well.

Guess What?

There was a man in my house today who was allergic to me!! Can you imagine that? How can anybody be allergic to an adorable little pussy cat like me?

One of my heaters in the living room wasn't working and this nice man came out to fix it and as soon as he saw me he said he was allergic and I had to be put in the bedroom. That wasn't too bad 'cos it was quite early and my MH was still in bed, so I just cuddled up and had a wee snooze, and the man didn't sneeze much!

I won't be able to write to you for a week as my humans are going for a wee holiday, but as soon as they come home, I will be back to tell you all about me.

I hope you won't miss me too much!

A Cunning Plan!

My MH told me today that they are going away for a wee while on Friday and I have to be left on my own, although I am not really on my own 'cos my friend A.comes to stay with me and sometimes he brings his brother J. and we all have good fun. A. looks after me and feeds me but J.lets me lie on his tummy when he is lying on my couch, and I like that a lot.

I actually have a lot of fun when my humans are away 'cos A. leaves the window open for me and I can nip in and out as I please, and them my MH's friends come in every afternoon to see me so I have lots of company----but I don't tell my humans that!

BUT, I have an idea and I was trying it out today when my MH took my picture. If I nip into the suitcase when they are not looking, I could go on holiday too!! Brilliant idea, eh?

What a surprise they would get when I jumped out of the suitcase! I may give this some serious consideration!

Tuesday, 15 March 2011


I went out very late last night and hunted for hours. It was very calm and I could hear all the wee mouses scampering about the long grass, so I just lay and listened and when one came near me, I pounced and gave it a great big fright. I did that lots of times and I liked it.

My MH had gone to bed and it was just me and my DH and he opened the window for me and out I went. I kept nipping back in to make sure that my humans were OK and that my MH was sleeping and then I would go back out and do 'cat' work until I got a wee bit tired and went inside and cuddled up beside The Boss and we both snored for a long time until it was time to get up again.

This morning they both went over to Stromness but they left the window open for me, so I could do what I wanted and then they played with me when they came home so that was fine.

I had a wee snooze in the afternoon 'cos I need all my strength to go out tonight and frighten more mouses. Oh yes, life is good.

Funny Weather

I can't get my adorable little head round this weather. One day it is blowing a gale and pouring with rain, and the next day it is lovely. What is a puss cat supposed to do? And how am I supposed to organise my social life?

As I told you, yesterday was horrible and I was indoors nearly all day, although I did go out hunting for a wee while at night---in the dark and it was good.

But today has been lovely and although it has been cold, I have been out playing all day and I even helped my MH hang out her washing again and I ran up the clothes pole while she was busy.

I wonder what it will be doing tomorrow?

Sunday, 13 March 2011

WELL..... is a good job my DH did all his outside jobs yesterday 'cos the horrible wind is back and it would have blowed him off his ladder and I know he wouldn't have liked that one wee bit!

He stayed indoors and watched some football and that made him happy and my MH was happy too just doing odds and ends about the house.

I was quite happy but I was a wee bit fed up 'cos I couldn't get out to play but my MH played with me in the house and cuddled my adorable little tummy and, as you know, that always makes me very happy.

I did some of my exercises by racing round my house and jumping over some of the furniture and then diving on to the back of the couch where my MH was sitting and then I leaned over and licked her ear and that made her giggle. It was a very good game.

I wonder what I will do tomorrow?

Much Livlier

I have had a much better day today after my day of rest yesterday. I am bouncing with energy and have been very busy doing lots of things.

The wind has disappeared and my DH has been fixing the guttering and it is all done now, so he is happy. He wasn't a happy DH earlier on when I climbed up the ladder behind him and he got a fright when he turned round and there I was! It was quite funny and I am sure he will giggle when he stops shaking!

I helped my MH empty out all the rubbish and then we fed the birdies and I liked that, and then I saw the lady farmer going to feed the sheeps, so I went to have as look and a wee chat, and she gave me a wee pat and said I was a 'good puss'. I knew this already, of course, but it is always nice when someone else recognises that I am indeed a good puss.

I had some 'me' time and went and played in the long grass and sniffed and explored and did lots of pussy cat things, so it has been a very good day indeed.

I am going to have a wee snooze now and I think I will go out hunting again when it gets dark. I like being out in the dark and am not frightened at all 'cos as well as being a good puss, I am also a very brave puss.

Perfection is looming!

Lazy Puss

I have done very little today as I have been feeling a bit lazy. It is still cold and snowy so not too great for puss cats being outside, so I have stayed indoors most of the day, although I had a wee quick trip outside to say hello to the sheeps.

My DH went over to Stromness this afternoon and brought back lots of goodies for me and my MH and while he was away, me and my MH were working in the study. Well---she was doing some more cards and I was supervising and lying on the big black chair and having a wee snooze at the same time.

After that, I lay on the couch and watched as my MH played on her Wii, but I was too tired to interfere today, so she managed to win at tennis. Sometimes she loses 'cos I jump up in front of the television to try and catch the ball.

She gets a tad annoyed at me when I do that, but I like it, so there!

More Cold Feets

It has been a good day but there is still some snow on the ground, so I have had little cold feets every time I go out to play, so when I come in, I sit on my MH's knee until they warm up again, and by that time, her knee is cold!

I have been out a lot and I have helped the lady farmer shift one of her sheeps which was just outside my gate. She was trying to get it to go into the field, and I just wandered up beside her and did one of my 'meows' and it helped her get the sheep where it should have been.

After that, and a wee seat on my MH's knee, I went into the greenhouse with my DH to see what he was doing. He is making a wee unit for the bedroom and had been sawing some wood, and as I am a very inquisitive pussy cat, I had a wee sniff at the sawdust and then I got a big surprise 'cos it made me sneeze and sneeze and sneeze and my DH had a wee chuckle.

I'll not do that again!

Wednesday, 9 March 2011


It has been lovely and peaceful in my house today 'cos my humans have been resting after all their hard work and that meant that they had much more time to play with me and make a fuss of me, which, as you know, I was born for!

We all had a good night's sleep and me and my MH had to get up about four o'clock in the morning, and I will leave you to guess why!, but when we got back into bed, we had a nice girlie chat and she tickled my adorable little tummy as I was lying on her tummy (not quite as adorable as mine, but quite comfortable!) and we both fell asleep again and didn't get up too early so I was well rested and full of beans when I got up.

When I got up and looked out of the window, I got quite a shock 'cos there was some snow lying on the ground, but not enough to play in, so I just watched it from my living room window which was a good idea 'cos the wind was blowing a lot and it was very cold too, and just a day for puss cats to be indoors!

All Finished!

The painting is all finished and all the paint pots and rollers have been put away, and according to my humans, they are away for a LONG time!

Today was spent cleaning my bedroom and putting everything back in its place, so we have been very busy and I have been playing hide and seek in the duvet which I just love.

My house is all back to normal now and my humans will have plenty of time to play with me which is just as it should be so the next few days should be very good indeed.

I am looking forward to it all.

All Finished!

Monday, 7 March 2011


Yep. The paint brushes are out again and my bedroom is an absolute tip! My humans have been busy all day shifting furniture and painting walls so the house is a mess again and I have been left to my own devices for a lot of the time but it has been quite good fun too.

There are lots of dust sheets all over the furniture and I decided to hide under one of them and my humans didn't know where I was and it was great fun. I lay very, very still and I could hear them calling for me and I stayed where I was BUT my wagger gave me away again, 'cos I was so happy playing that my little tail started wagging all by itself and it gave the game away and my humans found me.

I was able to go outside for a while with my MH 'cos my DH was painting the ceiling and me and my MH went outside for a wee play and for some fresh air, so the painting hasn't been too bad at all and they have told me that it will be even better tomorrow.

I will let you know.

Sunday, 6 March 2011

Not Again!!

Yes. The pesky painters are at it again and this time it is our bedroom! Just when I was beginning to relax and enjoy my adorable little self again, my MH started packing away all the things from our bedroom and she told me that the painting was going to start tomorrow. Oh joy!!

There are lots of soft toys on top of the wardrobe and they all belong to my MH and she took them all off today and put them in black sacks so that they wouldn't get painted. There are lots of little ones, but the two in today's picture are the biggest and they wouldn't go into sacks, so we just sat them on the bed and I cuddled up beside them which was nice.

The teddy bear is about 45 years old and is called Phredd and he growls if you turn him over and he is my MH's favourite. The hippo is called Dounby 'cos my MH won him at the Dounby Show which is a farmers show and takes place every year and farmers take and show all their animals and some win prizes, and there are lots of stalls selling all kinds of things and my MH won Dounby in a raffle and brought him home.

My MH likes all her soft toys but she loves me the best, so that is OK.

What a Day!

It is a super day and I have been a very busy puss helping my humans do all their work. The weather is very good, so my DH is doing all his work on the guttering and he has been in and out of the big shed, and I went with him to see what was there. It was heaven! Lots of pussy cat smells and sounds of little mouses and I was able to explore for a long, long time before I had to go and help my MH feed the birdies.

We have a bird table at the back of the house and one at the front and that is the one the birdies use a lot and I can watch them from my living room window, but they don't use the one at the back just so much. Maybe it's because I play there a lot and the birdies don't know I wouldn't hurt them. I hope they use it in the summer when all the other birdies come back.

My DH put out these two pretend birdies and I like to play with them and I think I look very fetching sitting beside them in today's picture.

I hope you think so too.

Normality Rules

Yes. Everything is my house is just normal again and we have been doing all the things that we like doing.

My MH was up very early today and I went out to play before half past seven in the morning! I had a wee chat with the sheeps, but I was back on my couch before my MH came home a couple of hours later, but I did run to meet her and she likes that.

She played with me for a long time and then we both had a wee sleep 'cos we had been up too early! My DH has been working outside 'cos he got new guttering for round my house and he was fixing that up, and of course, I had to have a look to see what he was doing, but it was a wee bit too cold for me, so after a quick look, I nipped back inside.

I hope we stay normal tomorrow!

Thursday, 3 March 2011

A Better Day

My living room is back to normal again and I have been playing with my toys and sleeping on my couch, so my little life is also back to normal.

My humans have been working very hard and are quite tired now so I have been looking after them. I went outside with my MH when she was hanging out her washing and I played on the grass with her for a wee while. I even climbed the clothes poles which made her laugh out loud.

We have three concrete clothes poles and if I get a good run at them, I can get right up to the top and I hang on there for a while and then jump down onto the grass and it is great fun and that is what I was doing today.

I hope I can do it again tomorrow.

Wednesday, 2 March 2011


I almost left home today, but stopped just in the nick of time!

As you know, my humans have been decorating my living room and I do not like it one wee bit, and I thought I might look for a new place to live, and was just about to start packing up all my little toys and all my food, when things took a remarkable turn!

The paint rollers and paint tins got put away and suddenly all the furniture and all my toys came back out again and got put in their correct place and we could all sit in my living room again, so I decided not to pack and move out after all.

We are nearly back to normal and my MH even had time to play with me and tickle my adorable little tummy, so I am feeling quite happy again and glad I don't need to move out.

What would my humans do without me? Today's picture is me trying to keep the roller away from my MH, but I failed I am afraid.

Tuesday, 1 March 2011

Not Happy!

I am not a happy puss! I am even thinking of leaving home! My house is a tip and I do not know what my humans are doing but they are making such a mess doing it that I do not know where to turn.

They are making the walls of my living room a different colour and they have both been playing with paint brushes, so there hasn't been a lot of time to play with me. Mind you, there is no room to play with me!

At least the weather has been good and I have been able to get out to play, but I am frightened that they move my window and I can't get back in again!

I will stay for a couple of more days and see what happens but if it doesn't improve I am off!
