Much Better

Yes. My day has been much better so far with most of the attention focusing on me which is as it should be.

It is another lovely day and my humans have been out in the garden and of course I go out and play with them, and I just love that. We have a garden bench and every year my DH paints it and my MH varnishes it and today was varnishing day, so I went for a close inspection of what she was doing, and I nearly had a VERY nasty accident 'cos when my MH put some varnish on, I went to jump up for a closer look, but my MH grabbed me and put me down on the ground, and then she told me why.

Oh dear, I nearly landed on the varnish and I could have been stuck there for ever and ever! I would have become a garden ornament. I still shake when I think what a narrow escape I had. I wonder if I would still get fed if I WAS an ornament?

After that, I went round to see what my DH was doing 'cos he was painting the outside of the gym, but I stayed well away from the paint. Just in case! That is what today's picture is.

I am having a very good day and I think I will stay outside for a long, long time. It is my favourite place when the sun is shining.

Well, there seems to have been some kind of wedding on today, and my MH and her friend have been watching the television ALL morning and of course, they haven't had too much time for me, so I went out to play with some of the little sheeps.

My DH went over to Stromness to do some shopping 'cos he didn't want to see the wedding so maybe he will play with me when he comes home.

So I don't have very much news for you today, but I am hoping that my MH will play with me in a wee while and we might even go out into the garden and play.

I will tell you tomorrow.

An outdoor pussycat

That is what I have become in this good weather. I am having the time of my little life playing outside with all the little animals and having a wee chat with them.

My MH was away swimming again today, but we didn't have any orders 'cos my DH has lots to do outside and I was helping him. We have been putting out all the garden ornaments and we have been getting the greenhouse ready for all the tomatoes and peppers, so there is a lot of work to be done.

I watched what he was doing and I helped him lots before going and having a wee play and having a sniff and an explore. I went into my house for something to eat and drink and I went in the window and out the door, and then the next time, I went in the door and out of the window.

I like variety in my life!

Wednesday, 27 April 2011


I went outside to play this morning and I had to decide which way to go and who to play with 'cos there are sheeps in the field on one side of my house and baby cows at the other side, so it was a bit of a dilemma.

However, I decided to spend a wee while with the sheeps and then some time with the cows and I had good fun.

My MH was away out for a wee while and when she came home, instead of playing with me, she took out the lawn mower! I was not best pleased, I can tell you, but the cows were 'cos when she empties the bag, she puts the grass over the fence and they like to eat it, so it is as well that the lawn mower makes something happy!

She did play with me when she was finished, though and that made me happy. I like when she plays with me, and she does it lots of times, especially when I ask her so nicely!!

I am a very polite little pussy cat.

My humans had to go away into Kirkwall I was left all alone in my house, but as the weather is still good,they were able to leave the window open for me, so I nipped in and out lots of times.

I have been watching the baby sheeps and I just LOVE their antics. There are some black one and some white ones and they all gang up and run round and round the field while all the mummy sheeps just watch. It is just beautiful.

I played with my humans when they came home but just for a wee while 'cos we were all a bit tired. They had done lots of shopping and I had done lots of playing, so we are all having a rest now, but I might go out later on and watch the sheeps again.

It is not getting dark until quite late now, so I can see quite well when I am out late and I like that and then when I get tired, I just nip in my window and curl up on my MH's knee and have a wee sleep and we both like that.

Happy snoozes everyone.

A Brill Day

The sun has been shining all day and I have had a ball! I have been in the fields with the baby sheeps and I have had a super time. The mummy sheeps didn't mind me being there as long as I didn't get too close, but I watched all the baby sheeps running round the field and jumping all over the place. One even jumped and turned right round in the air! I am going to try and do that tomorrow.

Then when I came home, I got a surprise 'cos my DH was putting out all the summer garden ornaments, and he put out the big jug which has water coming out of it.

I had forgotten all about this one and then I remembered that I like having a drink out of it, and that's what I did.

My humans laugh at me 'cos when I am having a drink, I put one of my paws in the water and stir it up while I am drinking and they think this is really funny. I don't know whay.

I hope it is a good day tomorrow.

Happy Easter---

-----to all my readers and all my feline friends out there. I hope you are all having a good Easter.

I am having lots of fun playing with all the baby sheeps and sitting on my window sill watching all the birdies, and then when I go inside, my humans play with me, so it is a good Easter Sunday for me.

My MH opened her Easter egg and it is beautiful, so she will be eating lots of it, and I think we might be spending a lot of time in the gym again! My DH doesn't like a lot of chocolate and that is why he is skinny. My MH DOES like a lot of chocolate and that is why she is ----well, not skinny!!

I got some wee Easter treats too, but they weren't chocolate. They were treats for adorable puss cats like me and I liked them.

Yes, it has been a good Easter day.

Saturday, 23 April 2011


It is raining now, so I don't have very much to tell you as I haven't been outside too long today. Instead, I have been inside playing with my MH and running all over my living room until my adorable little legs were tired, so I now need a wee nap.

However! One very exciting thing has happened. The nice lady who has the farm next door to my house and whose husband leaves his big shed door open for me to chase mouses in, had put lots of mummy sheeps and lots more baby sheeps in the field outside my garden, so I went to have a wee look when she was moving them and it was lovely.

There are lots of white baby sheeps and there are lots of black baby sheeps, but so far I have not seen any black and white ones like me. I wonder if I am unique?

I will go into the field tomorrow and have a wee chat with the sheeps and if the mummys say it is OK, maybe I can play with the baby sheeps.That will be the magicest fun ever 'cos there are LOTS of them.

Oh, I am looking forward to tomorrow!

Friday, 22 April 2011


That's what I have been today. Wherever my MH has gone, I have been right behind. In fact, I was so close, I nearly tripped her up! I missed her yesterday when she was away, so I have been making up for all the cuddles I missed yesterday and have stayed really close to her all the time.

Another name she called me today was 'monster' 'cos whenever she was doing anything, I had to have a VERY close look and that made all her jobs take twice as long, and so she turned me over, tickled my adorable little tummy and called me 'monster'

We haven't been out too much today 'cos it is a bit cool,and a bit misty, but I have liked being inside with my humans and we have played lots so it has been another good day.

I wonder what I will get up to tomorrow?

Another Cracker

It has been another cracking day! The weather has been fantastic and me and my DH have been outside all day. My MH was away swimming again and as usual, we had or orders and this time it was to clean the outside windows, which we did, and the Boss was really pleased when she came home.

I have been outside ALL day and I have had a fantastic time running in the long grass and I have even found a lovely soft mound of grass to roll in. Oooh lovely!

The cockerel has disappeared and hasn't been back again, so I must have done a really good job chasing him away.

When my MH came home she played with me and tickled my little tummy and I was delighted, and then I was so tired, that I curled up on her lap and had a wee snooze and we both liked that.

If it is a good night, I might go out hunting and see what is out there. I shall let you know.

Wednesday, 20 April 2011

What a Day!

It all started off quite quietly and as it was nice outside, I did some exploring and outdoor sniffing which I love.

My MH was away out for a wee while and my DH was working in his greenhouse, so I was able to nip in and out and see what he was doing, and all was well with my little world, until the Boss came home and changed everything!!

Now, as you know, I love my MH dearly, but not when she decides it is time to cut the grass, and that is just what she did! My little island had been all peace and quiet and she ruined the silence with the awful lawn mower, and then of course she expects my DH to bring out the awful-er strimmer and the peace of the EN-TIRE island was shattered!

And to crown it all, there was a cockerel just outside my garden and he was busy doing his 'cock-a-doodle-do-ing' to add to all the commotion. I tell you dear feline friends, I was nearly packing my wee case and leaving home!

Eventually the mower and the strimmer stopped, but the cockerel was still shouting, so I decided to take matters into my own hands---well, paws, and off I went for a showdown. Now, he is quite a big bird, and I am quite a little puss, but I rounded him up like the sheepdogs do and I just sort of shepherded him away from my gate and off he went, and I returned victorious to total peace and quiet.

Ah, the joy of a quiet Spring day. Long may it continue.

Another Brilliant Day

I am getting so much exercise now that I must be the fittest pussycat on my little island! I chased a ginormous bird today and I had to run very fast to try and catch it. I knew I couldn't get near it 'cos it would just fly away, but I had great fun giving it a fright!

My MH was in her wee gym again and I went in to see that she was doing all her exercises correctly---and she was, and then I played lots in my garden. I pretend I am chasing HUGE birdies and I run very fast all over my grass and I like that.

When my MH was finished, I went into the house with her, and I said to her---in cat language, of course--- 'MH, come and sit on the floor and play with me' and she did just that. Actually, I think she needed to sit on the floor,'cos her little legs were
wobbling after all her exercise on the treadmill and the bike!

Well, we played for ages and ages and I ran and jumped and rolled and it was just the magicest time ever. When I roll over on my back, my MH always tickles my adorable little tummy, and she did that lots of times today and I had lots of giggles. By the time we had finished, it was my little legs that were wobbling so I had to go and lie down on one of my many resting places.

This exercise does take it out of one!

Monday, 18 April 2011


I have had a superb day today and I am just loving it.

Although it is misty, it is quite a good day and since there is no wind, my humans can leave the window open and I can nip in and out as I please----which I do!

There are sheeps in the field in front of my living room, so I go to see them and we have a wee chat which is nice and we both like it.

I went into the gym with my MH and I played in there while she was busy on her treadmill and her bike. I had great fun climbing up and own the ladder until she was finished, and this always makes her smile.

When we finished we went into the house and she played with me for a long time before I went out again with my DH into his greenhouse and that was good too. My MH told him to take his camera and maybe get a picture of me up the ladder, but I wasn't in a climbing mood, so he didn't get one.

Maybe I shall climb and pose tomorrow!

Sunday, 17 April 2011


As you know from my earlier posts, Sunday is a day of rest here and today is no exception, so I am taking it very easy.

My DH is watching football, and so far his team isn't winning, so he is not best pleased. Mind you, it is not losing either, so I suppose there is still hope. My MH is playing with her camera and is trying to remember what she was told yesterday, and I am fed up being photographed, so I have slipped off to the spare room for a little peace and quiet.

The wind is quite strong, so it is not really a day for playing outside, although I did go out for a wee while earlier on, but there was nothing too interesting for me this morning, so I was quite happy to come inside again.

I did hear the humans saying that it was getting time for the lawn mower to come out again, so I am not going to be happy about that at all. At least, in the summer, I have plenty of places to hide while the awful machine is in my garden.

I shall let you know.

Saturday, 16 April 2011


My humans were out this afternoon at a photography class and my MH told me that she was learning how to take better pictures, especially when she was taking them of me,so I hope you see a difference in the future.

It is quite cold and windy today, so, although they left the window open for me, I only went out for a wee while and when my MH came back, she played with me for a long time.

My DH came into my living room looking for my MH and he couldn't find her 'cos she was lying down on the floor playing with me and my toys, and we had a wee giggle when he went back out again!

I do like it when we have a wee giggle and I giggle lots when I get my tummy tickled and since that happens lots of times, I am a happy puss.

Friday, 15 April 2011

New Feathers

My DH has put new feathers in my toy and I have had brilliant fun playing with it. My MH has been teaching me the colours and she told me that my new feathers are purple, red and blue, so now I know that, but I don't know which ones are which! I may be very clever, and I am exceedingly adorable, but I am still a puss cat and not a human, so the colours will remain a mystery to me!

I played with my toy and my humans played with me too, and then I went out to play and spent a wee while in the greenhouse and then I went exploring, and I was out of my house for a long, long time before I came back for my dinner. So I think I will need to have a long sleep.

Life is getting SO busy now!

Thursday, 14 April 2011

More Gold Stars

Me and my DH have got more gold stars today 'cos my MH was away swimming and me and him tidied up the house and she was very pleased with us when she came home, so we are definitely in the good books this week.

I have been having great fun with my new toy and I just love it to bits, and today's picture shows me playing with it, although I have 'de-feathered' it a wee bit, but my DH says he has feathers to fix it again, so I am really excited about that.

My toy is feathers on a bendy stick and it bounces up and down and I can carry it about with me and swing it round and round and that keeps me going for ages and ages until I run out of steam. My humans have great fun watching me, but they play lots with me too and that is very good fun.

I am quite a tired puss tonight 'cos as well as doing the housework and playing with my toy, I have been in the greenhouse with my DH helping him to get it ready for all our plants.

I think I need a nap.

Such a Good Pussy Cat

That's what my MH said today when I was sitting purring on her knee. We were very content and all was well in Chez Squeak.

Then my MH had to go out for a wee while and me and my DH decided to clean out the study for her 'cos she had been saying it was getting quite messy, so we dusted all the units and tidied away all the bits of paper that she didn't need and my DH even found a stick with feathers on which I had lost a long time ago, so I was extra happy. Then he went and spoiled it all by bringing out the vacuum cleaner!

I wasn't staying in for that and as it was quite a good day, I just nipped outside and did some hunting until he was finished. There was a lot of good smells and lots of places for me to explore so I was very busy and when I went in again, the vacuum was away and when my MH came home she was delighted with both of us, so we now have gold stars.

So I really am a very good pussy cat.

Deep Trouble

Now, I know when you look at today's picture, you would not believe that such an angelic little animal such as I, could get into trouble. But I did!

It was bed-changing day today and the duvet covers and sheets were getting changed and I was in a playful mood. SO! I was on top of the duvet, I was under the duvet, I was in the duvet covers and I was even nearly in the pillowslips and I was having a ball!

At first my MH was smiling at all these antics, but as I was keeping her back a lot she asked me--very politely---to stop, but I am afraid I didn't stop 'cos I was having too much fun, but when my MH uttered the immortal words 'Soup pot' I knew it was time to behave, so I sat like a very good pussy cat and watched until she was finished.

Then in the afternoon, I went outside and helped my DH in his greenhouse and that was really good fun, but there are no wee plants or tomatoes for me to talk to yet, but my DH said they would be here soon.

I hope I get my own tomato plant again this year, 'cos that was just MAGIC!

Monday, 11 April 2011

More Fun

I have very busy days now and as the weather has been quite good, it means that I can play outside and that makes me very happy 'cos I can see all the wee birdies and some that are not so wee.

We have lots of starlings beside my house and now there are oyster catchers and curlews as well as ducks and geese, so it gets quite busy out there and I can sit and watch them, and listen to them talking to one another.

Another bonus with the good weather is that I can go out to play when the awful vacuum cleaner appears and I did that today and then I went back into the house when it was put away, so I was very happy again.

My MH was in her gym again and I went in and played with her, and I had great fun 'cos my DH had left a step ladder in there, and I spent lots of time climbing up to the top and then jumping down to the ground again and that was VERY good fun.

So you can see how busy I have been and how much fun I have been having. I am a very happy pussy cat.

Sunday, 10 April 2011


We have all had a better day today 'cos we have all been at home and the sun was shining for a wee while before the rain came on. That was OK 'cos my DH wanted to watch the football on the television, and my MH had some jobs for him to do outside, so he started to do all the jobs and then the rain came on just in time for the football. Oh he was a happy DH.

Now, I cannot swear to this, but I am sure I saw him doing a wee rain dance in his greenhouse! And it worked!!

I was out playing a lot and my MH came out with me and took lots of pictures of me playing and running and that made her happy. She likes it when I chase things and when I roll in the grass. Sometimes, I chase my tail round and round in circles and this makes her laugh out loud, and I like that.

So, it has been a much better day!

Saturday, 9 April 2011


.....they went away and left me all alone AGAIN! I am not a happy puss. Well, I am now that they are back and my MH has been playing with me and she tickled my little tummy lots of times, so I suppose I don't have a lot to complain about, really----but I won't let that stop me. Tee hee!

They didn't go away very far, but they were away for a long time 'cos there was an archaeology day on the island where some people came over to my little island to wander round and look at archaeological sites and my humans went too. I did think of saying to them that if they wanted to look at old relics, they could have stayed at home, but I reckon I would have been in the soup pot before you could spell 'adorable'!

So I decided to say nothing at all, 'cos I want to live a lot longer. I am learning!

Friday, 8 April 2011

Just a Normal Day

Not a lot to report today as it has just been normal. My humans have just been doing 'ordinary' work and I have just been watching them, but every now and then, one of them would stop and play with me and, as you know, I like that a lot.

I have a signal that I want to play and my MH knows the signal, but my DH hasn't learned it yet, so I shall have to keep training him a wee while longer.

When I want to play, I go and find my MH wherever she is, and then I run very fast in front of her into my living room and hide under the rocking chair, and she knows it is play time and she usually gets down on the floor and plays with me until I am a wee bit tired. It is a good signal, and it works well for me.

I watched my MH playing on her Wii today and I had a wee giggle as she tried all the exercises and today's picture is me reading the instructions so that I would know what she should be doing.

She likes when I help her.

Thursday, 7 April 2011


My MH had to go away to Kirkwall today, so me and my DH were left in charge again and we had to do some housework.

I helped to tidy away some of my toys and my DH had to bring out the awful vacuum cleaner, but I just went into the bedroom and had a wee cat-nap until he had finished. Why does it make such an awful noise? I do not like it!

When the Boss came back she was very pleased at what we had done and she gave me a great big cuddle which I liked, and she gave my DH some can of beers which he LOVED! So I think she was happy with us.

After she had a wee rest, she played with me, and today's picture is of me hiding under the coffee table. I like this picture and I like hiding under the table, but somehow my humans always find me and I can't figure out how.

I shall have to think about it.

Wednesday, 6 April 2011

Hands Up!

I look as though that is what I am doing in today's picture but I am really playing with my MH and my wee ball on a string. I think it is a funny picture.

Today has been good 'cos the weather was good when my MH had to go out, and so I was able to go out and play in my garden and in my jungle. There are lots of lovely smells out there and I just love exploring. There are two little lambs in the farm up the road, and I can hear them calling to their mummy sheep, so I might go and visit them sometime.

Then when my MH came home, the rain came on and so I had to stay in, but we played some brilliant games and when she was getting changed, we played my favourite game where she puts her hand under the cover on the bed and then I spring on them and try to 'kill' them, then she covers me up and tickles me and rolls me in the cover. We play this lots of times and I just LOVE it.

After that, we played with my ball and we had lots of fun, so I have had another very good day.

Tuesday, 5 April 2011

No News

My humans went away in the boat this morning 'cos they needed to go to Kirkwall, so I was left all alone, and because the wind was blowing very hard, they couldn't leave the window open, so I had to stay in my house.

Now I cannot tell you what I got up to when they went away 'cos my MH who types this for me, doesn't know, and if she DID know, she would have a fit of the vapours! I had good fun!

When they came back, they played with me, and me and my MH chased all over the house and she never catched me at all 'cos I am much quicker than her.

Then when we had finished, she took out her laptop, and I lay on her knee with my head on her keyboard and I purred lots and she liked that. Sometimes, I stretch out my adorable little paws and hit the keys and I make lots of funny words that she has to rub out.

Maybe one day she will keep them in and you can see what I can write!

Monday, 4 April 2011

Play Time

I have done lots of things today and, as usual,I have had a great time. It has been quite a good day, so my humans have been in and out a lot, and so have I.

The day started with a 'weigh in' for my MH and as I just happened to be there at the time, she said to me "OK, hup, Squeak". So, being a very obedient wee pussy cat, I 'hupped' onto the scales and I just sat there until she told me to get off again. I am an adorable eight pounds heavy and me and my MH are happy with that.

I am very happy with that 'cos I have to watch that I don't get fat, or getting in and out of my garden will get difficult. I shall explain. My garden has a wire fence all round it, and there are little wire squares in this fence which I can jump through quite easily, so when I want to escape to my jungle, I just nip through one of these wee squares, and when it is time to come home again, I nip through another one, and I can do this at great speed.So you see, if I get fat, I might get stuck in the fence, and that would be such an embarrassment. I would never live it down!

The other day I was in a playing mood and I went through one square, turned round quickly and jumped through another one and I did this lots of times in and out of my garden and my DH was watching me and laughing lots. He told my MH that I was like the doggies at Crufts on the obstacle course.

Oh yes, I am a VERY clever puss!

Sunday, 3 April 2011

A Funny Old Day

It has been full of bits and pieces today. My humans had a lazy morning and then they started doing wee jobs around the house and I was able to follow them and see what they were doing.

My DH was working outside and in his greenhouse so I played outside and I explored the greenhouse too. There is a wee seat with a cushion on it, and I am comfortable there, so I spent quite a lot of the morning there as well as in the garden.I don't think I will be in my house an awful lot in the Spring. I shall just nip in to see that the oldies are Ok and that they don't need me for anything.

My MH went visiting with her friends, but she played with me when she came back until we both needed a wee rest, so she used her laptop and I sat on the back of my couch watching her.

I like sitting there, 'cos I can see all that is happening in my living room, but I can also look out of the window and watch all the boats sailing past, and I can also see if there are any birdies in my garden.

It is a very good seat.

Saturday, 2 April 2011

A Puzzle

Remember I told you that because my MH had eaten too much sticky toffee pudding when she was away that she had to spend HOURS in her wee gym? Well, it had just about disappeared when she ate a great big bit of apple pie with ice cream!! I do wonder about her sometime.

So, guess where we were today? Yep! In the gym. Working away as hard as ever. Well, she was. I was just sniffing around all the wee interesting corners and as she had left the door open, I could nip in and out to see how she was getting on, and purr encouragingly to her and she liked that.

But it does make me wonder about my humans sometime. Now, if she ran about chasing mouses like
I do, she wouldn't need the gym, but she doesn't seem to want to do that. I shall have to have a word with her, methinks.

Apart from that we have had a good day and we have been outside a lot 'cos the weather is good, so we have been in the garden and I like that. There are lots of birdies coming back now and I can hear them singing and there are more baby calves for me to play with, so I shall soon be outside ALL day except when I need a wee feed.

Oh yes, life is good!

Friday, 1 April 2011


After all my hunting yesterday, I decided to have a day of rest, but I did play with my MY and my feathers which is my favourite toy, and we had great fun for a long time until I decided I needed a rest and then I just watched her as she worked on the computer. She was putting some pictures of me on her ipod, so I was quite happy with that.

My DH was up very early 'cos he had to go on the boat, but me and my MH just cuddled up for another wee sleep and we got up later and had a wee girlie chat while we had something to eat. When he came home, he brought us some we treats, so I was happy with that too.

It has been quite a good day, so I have been in and out of the window lots of times, but my favourite place is still on the window sill with my front end outside, and my back end inside. I can see everything that's going on, but I have a comfortable seat.

I like my comforts!
