Oh Dear!

I was nearly in trouble today. You notice that I say 'nearly'? I have been nearly in trouble lots of times in my almost seven years! Do you see what I did there? Just a wee gentle hint, hee hee. Anyway, I never really get into REAL trouble 'cos my humans love me too much to get angry with me and they usually end up smiling at me and telling me I am a monkey, so that's OK.

Anyway,(again)I stretched the old dear to the limit today, but still I got away with it. Picture the scene. It is a wet, blowy, horrible day on my little island. My DH has sailed away to the Cat Shop and my MH has lots of work to do on her computer so she is sitting on the couch with her laptop and she is clattering away on the keys doing some writing stuff. Yours truly is having a snooze, but just coming out of a lovely dream and thinking that maybe I should wander out to see what is happening in my garden. All OK so far.

I waken up and have a wee wash and a crunch at some of my biscuits then I politely ask the old dear to let me out. So. She stops clattering and lifts all the books she is using and her computer and puts them to the side and gets up and opens the window for me. I nip up onto my window sill but as soon as she opens the window and the weather comes flying inside, I am back on the couch again! Everything is still fine and my MH is still happy and she asks if I would like to try the door where it might be a bit better and we agree to try it. We wander through the kitchen and as soon as she opens the door, the weather hits me and I am back on the couch again.

The old dear is still quite understanding and settles down again to pick up her books and computer and starts again. I think you know what I did now, don't you? Yep. I nipped back up onto the window sill and started pawing at the curtains which I am definitely NOT allowed to do and my MH is up like a shot---well, once she had moved all her stuff again ---- and races over to the window.

I don't think I need to tell you any more except this happened another couple of times before she told me that if I didn't go out of my own accord, she would throw me out. I think she was kidding, but I didn't wait around to find out. I was just a little bit naughty but it was worth it and after I had had a wee run round my garden and waited a decent time, I asked to be let back in again and got a great big cuddle.

She just cannot get angry with me at all-----I think!! :-))

So Cold

I think I will need to get little boots. My adorable little feets are getting so cold every time I go out, so I think I shall purr nicely to the old dear and she if she can make me some special boots to keep me warm.

You will have gathered that it is cold on my little island. There was some hail today and where was yours truly? Yep. Outside in my garden and too far away to reach the window without getting soaked.Fortunately, I have found a couple of wee places where I can shelter and I managed to reach one of them and couried up until the shower passed and then I scooted home as fast as possible and got a great big cuddle to warm me up again.I liked that.

I have been in and out lots of times all through today but just for little trips at a time as it is really cold but I still like being outside and having a wander through the fields. I am a hardy little puss and I am beginning to wonder if maybe the little birdies might giggle if they saw me in boots.

Hm. I think I might give this idea some more thinking as I am lying on my couch beside my MH. After all, I am a growed up puss now and I need to show the world that I am brave and fearless and I think probably boot-less! Hee hee

All Normal Again

We are all right back to normal again in my house with my DH sailing away on the boat to go to the Cat Shop, my MH running round my house with her vacuum cleaner and her dusters, and me just wandering about my house and garden and having little snoozes in between times, so it has been a very good day.

The weather has also been very good and although it has been very cold, it has been good enough to let me out to play as much as I wanted and it even let my MH hang her washing on the clothes poles which meant fun for me. I was on my day bed having a snooze when I heard her calling for me and when I went through, my MH asked if I would like to go outside with her and of course I did.

I had brilliant fun running all over the grass and up and down the clothes poles which always makes the old dear laugh and it helps use up all my energy which is good. I got another surprise when my friend S. arrived with a parcel that had comed off the boat and when my MH opened it up, it was puss cat biscuits for me, so my day just keept getting better and better.

I wonder what will happen before bed time! Hee hee

A Beautiful Sunday

I had a long sleep this morning 'cos me and my MH were up a couple of times through the night so we were both a bit sleepy. I love when we get up in the middle of the night 'cos it is very, very dark and when we go back to bed we have a wee quiet chat together and I love it 'cos it makes me feel very special and it is a secret between me and my MH 'cos the old boy is still snoring. Hee hee

Anyway, when we did get up I noticed it was a lovely bright day so I gobbled up my breakfast and then I was off out of the window and into my garden and it was lovely. A wee bit cool, but I liked it lots and lots and I stayed out a long time.I looked again for my little mouse, but it still won't come out to play with me and my MH says I look so sad just sitting beside my honeysuckle bush and hoping for it to come and play. I might have to give up soon. We'll see.

I got a lovely surprise in this afternoon when my MH came outside to clean her windows and she asked me to help her so we had good fun and then my friend S.came in his big tractor and when he saw us in my garden, he came in and we all had a chat which was lovely.

So,you can see that I have had a very good day and my little weather man friend says the weather will be quite good this week too, so there might be lots more days outside for me and the old dear, and I am hoping so.

Saturday Again

We all like Saturdays in my house 'cos it is a good lazy day and my humans don't do very much at all so that means there is lots of time for me which makes me very happy as you can imagine. Our day started off as usual with the old dear on the couch helping Jessica solve her murders, and me sitting on my MH's knee being a very contented little puss. So a very good start to my day.

Later on I helped my DH watch some football and some rugby on my television while my MH was out for a while and when she comed home I got a great big cuddle which I just loved. I went outside for a while and sat at my honeysuckle bush to see if my little mouse friend would come out to play, but it didn't which is a great shame 'cos I could make that little mouse very happy. Maybe tomorrow?

I leapt up on to my window sill and my MH let me in but when she feeled my adorable little paws she was worried that I was too cold 'cos said little feets were really, really cold, but they were soon warmed up by my MH and I was very fine again.

I am liking being out in the dark nights and I don't mind being cold 'cos I know I will be nice and cosy again as soon as I go home. So I can't complain at all. Can I?

Just an Ordinary Friday

It will take me a wee while to get used to not having string on a Friday. For a wee while I forgot that I had played with the string yesterday and then I was a bit disappointed when I remembered, but as usual the old dear knew what I was thinking and she played with me so I was all happy again. It doesn't take very much to make me happy, does it?

We have all had a good day and it has been lovely and quiet without the vacuum cleaner and whenever I wanted a seat beside my MH or a cuddle I just had to ask and it was there. Magic. I think I will get to like Fridays.

I have been in and out lots of times. I keep looking for the little mouse in my honeysuckle bush but I still can't find it. I was hoping I might bring it into my house so that it could be warm and maybe play with me. I am sure my MH would just love that, sure she would? I will keep looking and maybe one of these days I will be able to bring her a little present. I hope so.

It will soon be time for me to start dropping hints about what I want for my birthday 'cos I will soon be seven years old. Wow! I am a fully growed up cat now even though I still act like a kitten cat but I still have to make sure I get my present list all sorted out.

Well, it will be such a great help to my humans, sure it will? Hee hee

A Big Surprise

Today was a good day and I got a great big surprise which I just loved and you can see how much I loved it from all the pictures. We were just having a normal Thursday with me and my DH keeping out of the way of my MH as she raced round the house with her vacuum cleaner and her duster, but then the old boy went away and I just waited patiently for him to come back and it was then I got my surprise 'cos he brought our boxes. With string!!

I certainly wasn't complaining and me and my DH played for ages with the string and then my MH told me that the boat times had changed and from now on Thursday will be string day so I shall have to remember that.

It is still a lot cold on my island, but not enough to keep me in so I have had lots of little plays outside and then brilliant big cuddles to warm me up when I decide to go home again.

So you can see that I have had a very good day and I hope your day has been a good one too.

Millions Better

That's what my today has been. Both my humans at home with me and no housework. Just a purr-fect Squeak day really hee hee.

My DH is feeling a lot better now but decided to stay home with me and my MH rather that go out in all the cold to the Cat Shop so we have all had a very lazy day and it has been very good. I have had lots of little trips outside and have managed to work it out that if I don't stay out too long, then I don't get too cold. Brilliant, eh?

I got a big surprise when my friend S. comed to see me this afternoon and I got a great big cuddle from her and that made me very happy. I purred very loudly to her and that made her happy, so job done, really!

It is very cold on my little island so I have been indoors more times than I have been out and I made my MH laugh when I did my funny run which means I am needing to play and she always plays with me. She wraps me up in my blanket and then tickles me and I just love that, but today I asked her to play with some of my toys and that's just what she did.

And we had magic fun which I loved and I will tell you a wee secret. I am going to ask her again tomorrow. What do you think she will say? YES!!!!! You know she will.

Tuesday, 22 November 2016

A Lonely Little Squeak

I have not had the bestest of days today 'cos my MH has been out all day at a meeting on my little island and although my DH was home with me, he wasn't feeling well so he didn't play with me and it was too cold to leave the window open, so I have been stuck inside and not happy about it at all.

However, that all changed when the old dear comed back to me and the first thing she did was give me a ginormous cuddle and then we played together for a while and I just loved it millions! In fact, that was a lot of hours ago and I am still purring! Hee hee

As soon as I was finished with all the cuddles and adorations, I asked if I could go out to play and I made my MH laugh 'cos I did something really funny. My MH had lots of stuff to get out of her little kangaroo so I was watching while she did this, but when she went back into the house, I scooted really really quickly across the grass and through my fence and had a run about in the long grass. She was coming back out of my house as I was going back in and she opened the door just in time to see me take a HUGE leap from the grass right into my porch! Wow, it was the hugest leap you have ever seen and I did it perfectly! In fact if my MH had been one little step closer to the door, I would have landed on her. Now, that would have been funny, sure it would?

I was much more cheered up after she comed home and although it is still very cold here, I have been out lots of times for little trips and then I claim my cuddle when I go back home, so I am much more happy again and if I could put sound in here, you would be able to hear me!!

Purr. Purr. Purr---just for you!

Monday, 21 November 2016

Boy oh boy!

What a Sunday night! Me and my humans sat watching Andy on my television winning his tennis match and it was just brilliant and doubly brilliant 'cos my MH didn't need to chew on my adorable little claws. Hee hee. Now, I know you will be wondering why she needs MY claws. Well it is because she has no nails of her own left having watched all his other matches. See? Don't worry, that's just my little joke! But it was a brilliant match and we are all very happy for Andy.

It was nearly a normal Monday when my DH got all ready to go to the Cat Shop but then felt a wee bit not too well so he just went back to bed but he is feeling better now. I helped my MH do all her housework and we both went outside for a while and I liked that lots.

It was quite a good day on my little island so I was able to get out to play lots of times and although I got cold and my adorable little feets got wet on the grass, I still liked it and I will be heading out again after I have had my after dinner snooze.

A Funny Sunday

You all know that Sunday in my house is usually a very lazy day, but not today. My MH was very busy washing lots of dishes from last night's party in the Hall, but she talked to me when I went to see her and that made her happy.

My humans were out very late last night and because it was so cold, they had to close the window and I had to stay inside but I did get out to play when they comed home again, but my MH told me a funny thing. She said to be careful 'cos Jack Frost was outside. Well, I looked and looked but I couldn't see him. All I did see was lots of very cold white stuff on my grass and paths. It wasn't snow but it was just as cold and I had to keep moving or I would have sticked to the path, so needless to say, I didn't stay outside too long and nipped back in to sit with my MH for a while before we went to bed. She told me that the party had been very good and she had sore feets with dancing but she like it lots.

We didn't get up too early and when I went outside I looked for Mr. Frost again but he still wasn't in my garden. Maybe it was too cold for him. A wee while later, our friend N. brought my MH boxes and boxes of dishes to do. I know you will be asking why and I will tell you. You knew I would, didn't you? You see, there are only two dishwasher machines on my little island. We have one and my friend S. has the other, so they do all the dishes after our parties. See?

So that's what we did this afternoon and then the old dear needed a long seat so I sat with her and purred a lot. Then tonight we watched Andy winning his match and we were both very happy when he won. Well done Andy.

So, although it has been a different Sunday, it has been a good one for us and I hope it has been a good one for you too.

A wee short message

My MH is busy this afternoon getting ready for going out tonight and watching Andy on my television, so this is just a very short message to let you know we are all very well.

It is very cold on my little island but it is dry and not windy so my wee MH won't get blowed away when she goes out tonight and that is good.

I have been out a few times and there is a little mouse in my honeysuckle bush but it won't come out to play with me. I sat there for ages until my MH thought I had frozen to the spot but I was very fine and nipped home without said mouse.

I will have more news for you tomorrow but I hope you have a good weekend.

...... I know where there is snow. I can see it from my house but I don't think I can get to it easily. I shall explain. There is lots of snow on the Hoy hills and these hills are on the island next to mine, so if I want to get there I would have to sneak away on the boat and there is the tiny, tiny snag 'cos if I tried to get on the boat somebody would see me and take me back to my humans 'cos everybody on my little island knows me and they all know where I should be, so my chances of getting to Hoy are just about none! Oh dear. I guess I shall have to wait until the snow comes to me.

I have had a fine day and although it has been cold, I have still been out lots of times but my humans have noticed that my times out are getting shorter and shorter and they know that it is too cold for me to stay out long. I comed home last night and when I nipped in the window, my MH lifted me up like she always does and she got a shock when she feeled my adorable little feets 'cos they were freezing! But she cuddled me close for a long time and soon I was warm again. She is thinking about little boots again, but since it hasn't happened in all the years I have been a puss here I don't think it will happen this year. But one never knows, does one?

Me and my MH watched Andy winning his match and we were very happy so we will watch him again tomorrow with our fingers crossed. I am be left on my own tomorrow night because it is the island's Harvest Home and both my humans will be out all night. My MH has told me she will cuddle me or play with me---or maybe both!-- in the afternoon and then make sure that I can have a special time when she comes home so I am OK with that.

We will be very busy on Sunday catching up with Strictly and watching tennis. I might not have time to go out to play so I hope it doesn't snow on Sunday 'cos I just don't have time for it. Can it please wait till Monday, little weather man friend?

Thank you.

Thursday, 17 November 2016


I had a very good sleep and when I wakened up I scooted to my window only to find that all the snow had disappeared! I was not a happy Squeak. Not happy at all. However, a wee cuddle and a scritch from my MH and all was well again.

We had quite a night on my little island last night 'cos there was thunder and lightning as well as lots and lots of hail and it was quite frightening. Me and the old dear were sitting on my couch---well, she was on the couch and I was on her, ok?-- and suddenly there was a ginormous rumble which made us both jump. I didn't know my MH could jump that high. Hee hee After that there was lightning and more rumbles and it wasn't very nice at all. Fortunately it didn't last too long and it went away to rumble someplace else, but we didn't like it at all.

I still managed out for a little while before bedtime, but I didn't stay out too long in case the rumbles comed back again. I was soon cosied up beside the old dear and we had a very good sleep but I was looking forward to playing in the snow and it wasn't there when I got up. Maybe tomorrow.

I still have had a good day just nipping in and out whenever I felt like it and my humans were always there for me whenever I nipped back in again, which I liked a lot.

Wednesday, 16 November 2016

Guess What?

There is snow on my little island! Yippee!! Not an awful lot of snow you understand. Not enough to build a snow man yet, but enough to make these four adorable little paws be freezing cold when I venture out and I have ventured out a lot today. Oh I am a happy, happy Squeak.

My DH wasn't feeling very well today so he stayed home with me and my MH and I had to look after him for a while but he is feeling better now so I must have done a very good job. The old dear decided to have a day off all her work so there was plenty of time for me.

It was my MH who told me it was snowing 'cos I was having one of my many cat naps and she comed and founded me and told me that it was starting to snow and by the time I got through to my living room, the hail was banging against my window and my DH couldn't hear the radio. Shame.

I sat on the window sill and just watched all the weather but as soon as as all the hail stopped rattling down I was off out into the snow and I liked it but oh dear my little feets were so, so cold. I didn't stay out very long and as soon as I went inside I got a great big cuddle to warm me up and that was so very good.

I have been out lots of times but just for very little times 'cos it is still cold and it is quite windy too. I am hoping that when I get up in the tomorrow morning, my little island will be covered in snow.

That will make me a very happy little Squeak indeed.

Tuesday, 15 November 2016

Just Normal

I don't have an awful lot to tell you just now because I am not doing very much. It is colder on my little island and most of the cows are away into the barns for the winter. Some of the sheeps are still in the fields, but my adorable little paws get all cold and mucky when I go to see them so there is not much more for me to do.

I normally just stay round about my house and although I have a big garden to play in, I prefer heading into the long grass where I can hide and watch the world go by and the world can't see me. I did that this morning and stayed out so long that my MH was getting worried about me, but as usual I was safe and comed home just in time to help her.

When I nipped in through the window, she was nowhere to be seen, so I wandered into the bedroom and found her changing the beds again and you know it is my job to help her with that, and that is just what I did and we both had great fun doing it.

The rest of my day was spent doing more of the same. Just helping my MH or watching her as she did her cards and then I had a lovely little snooze on my couch which I loved.

So, although I'm not doing very much I am still having a good time and I hope you are having a good time too.

Monday, 14 November 2016

A Funny Monday

I was a bit confuddled today --that is one of my MH's words that I like the sound of. My DH got ready to go to the Cat Shop and that was fine 'cos that's what he usually does, but my MH went away with him as well and I didn't like that very much at all. I had been outside for a while, but I was told to come in 'cos the window had to be shut before they went away and this time I did as I was told.

I decided just to settle down and have a snooze but then in just a little while my MH comed back again. She told me that she just needed a haircut and now she was back to look after me and that made me very happy.

She did a wee bit of housework but there was always lots of time for me and that was good.I had been having a snooze on the chair and then I decided to sit on the window sill and look out the window and it was then that I got a big surprise 'cos the field was filled with all these geeses. Lots and lots of ginormous geeses! I was staring so hard that my MH came to see what was wrong and she tooked this picture for you and I hope you like it.

We were all hoping to see the big moon but I am afraid my little island was all covered in cloud so we didn't, but my little weather man friend said maybe we could see it tomorrow so my little paws are crossed.

I hope you managed to see the big moon.

Sunday, 13 November 2016

Oh Dear...

...I am afraid I have been a tad naughty today and I came very close to making my MH a wee bit angry with me which has never happened before and I think I had better be careful that it doesn't happen again.

It wasn't the bestest day for weather on my little island 'cos it kept raining so I went out a few times this morning when it wasn't too bad. My MH went away out for a while to see my friend S. and that's when it got very much wetter and it was then that I wanted to go out so I asked my DH and of course he opened the door but as soon as I felt the raindrops on my adorable little body, I was back on my couch before he could get the door shut! Now, if I tell you that this happened about three or four times you might begin to understand why I was in trouble.

So, when the old dear comed home to me, my DH told her what I had been doing and while he was doing that, yours truly headed to the door again and this time my MH opened it. And guess what? Yep. I did the same thing again---three times!! Well, it was wet!

I decided it would be safer to go out when I heard her telling my DH that if I asked again and didn't go, she would put me out. Now, can you imagine the indignity of that? What if some of my little friends saw me being thrown out of my house? I could never hold my head up again. So, I asked. The door was opened and I walked out with my head held high!

Problem solved!

Good Times

I am a lucky puss. I know that and I like that. It will soon be my birthday again and I know I will have a lovely time but just knowing that my humans love me so much is nearly enough for me. 'Nearly', 'cos I do love getting presents and surprises! I have been doing a wee bit of thinking today and that's why I am sounding a wee bit serious.

I have been in and out a lot of times and I went outside with my MH when she was going away to do crafty things and I was outside again to meet her when she comed home to me and she liked that a lot.

My MH has sended you a couple of pictures of our little island. The one with the sunshine was taken on Thursday morning when she was going away early and the one of the moon was taken today when she comed home and she thought you might like to see them.

Me and the old dear are settling down now to watch the dancing and I am looking forward to that. I hope you are having a good weekend too.

Friday, 11 November 2016

A Good Friday

I have had a very good day mainly because both my humans have been with me today for the en-tire day, but you will never guess what I did! I forgot it was Friday and I went for a big sleep while my MH was doing some of the work that she didn't do yesterday and I forgot it was messages day so I didn't get up in time to play with the string! DOH! Silly Squeak.

Really it was my MH's fault 'cos she muddled me up doing housework on a Friday, but I think she knowed that, 'cos when I finally did get up, she played with me for a while so that was OK. I don't know why I was so sleepy 'cos me and my MH had a very good sleep last night. The poor old dear was tired, so I just snuggled in beside her and didn't disturb her through the night time and she appreciated that. I know this 'cos she told me she loved me millions, so there.

It has been quite a good day but my little weather man friend told me it is going to get windy through the night so I think I had better go out to play early before the wind comes. My poor DH was all disappointed 'cos he was going to go over to Stromness tonight to have some beer while he watched the football, but because the weather might be bad, the boat was cancelled. Shame. I am sure I saw a wee tear in his little eye, but he can watch it here with me and he won't get blowed about.

Sure that is a much better idea? I think so but I don't know if he really agrees with me. Shame!

Thursday, 10 November 2016

I'm Just a Lonely Puss...

...well, I wasn't really THAT lonely 'cos my DH was here with me but my MH was away from early till late and I missed her.

We had a very good sleep last night and we were both quite tired but the poor old dear was up at half past seven o'clock in this morning 'cos she had to go to Kirkwall and she didn't come home till half past six in the tonight so it was a long day for her and a long day for me without her, but I got lots of cuddles when she comed home again.

So. You will have worked out that I don't have any news for you except that I have had a very good day. The weather has been lovely and I have had great fun being outside all day.My DH told the old dear that he had hardly seen me 'cos I had been outside so much but now I am inside and sitting on my MH's knee while she is writing this for you.

I will have lots more news for you tomorrow 'cos both my humans will be at home with me. Yippee!

Wednesday, 9 November 2016

A Very Quiet Day

I was a bit disappointed this morning 'cos there was no snow in my garden. Sigh. It was just wet and a lot windy so we all stayed indoors for most of the day. I did manage out a few times but I had to decide first whether to go out of the door or out of the window and that tooked me a long time much to my MH's frustration 'cos she had to keep opening the window and the door for me so that I could make a big decision.

My humans sat up very late last night watching something on my television so they were a bit tired today and my MH even had to go for a little snooze in the afternoon and, being a very kind and considerate little puss, I went with her and snuggled up to make her nice and cosy. We both had a good sleep.

She told me she has to go to Kirkwall tomorrow and me and my DH have to be left all on our own for the whole day, so I am not very happy. In fact, I am thinking of trying my wind and rain dance again to keep her at home with me.

I shall have to have a think about that one, but I shall let you know.

A Wee Secret

I was listening to my little weather man friend today and I got a wee bit excited 'cos he told me it might be snowing on my little island soon and I love the snow so you can understand if I am excited and impatient.

I haven't seen very much snow but a long time ago when I was a baby puss, there was some snow that lasted for a while and I liked out playing in it although my adorable little paws did get very cold. What I liked the very bestest was that my humans would take me out to play and I helped them shovel away all the snow from our path so I am hoping we all do that again. Watch this space. I will let you know as soon as it happens.

I was out very late last night and I am afraid I upset my DH 'cos he wanted to go to bed and I wouldn't come in. It was too wet and windy to leave the window open so he was a big bit annoyed at me but I am afraid I was busy waiting for a little mouse to come out of its hiding place so that I could play with it, but for some reason said little mouse stayed hiding and this little puss stayed out until my DH comed out and lifted me inside! Oh the shame of it. Still, the old boy was tired, so I can't really blame him. I didn't like it though. Hee hee

We have all had a good day and I haven't done very much. I did nip out this morning to see if I could find my little mouse, but he had gone away somewhere, so I shall have to look again tonight. It is very cold, so I think I will come home early because I am in danger of getting locked out one of these nights and that would never do would it?

I think I shall be a good puss tonight ..... unless.......!

Monday, 7 November 2016

A Better Day

I was a little concerned when I wakened up this morning 'cos I was full of energy and needed to be outside so I was worried in case it might be a rotten day, but it wasn't too bad at all. It was a wee bit damp but not windy so I gobbled up my breakfast and nipped out of the window to see what was happening in my world.

I had a good wander round the fields and I liked it 'cos I wasn't getting winded on and I wasn't cold. I had a wee chat to the cows that are in the field in front of my house and then when I went back inside I was just in time for my little drop of milk. Perfect timing as usual!

The rest of my day was just as perfect. My DH was away to Stromness but my MH was here with me and when she was busy, I had a wee lie down and just waited until she was finished although every now and then she would come and find me and give me a wee cuddle, and sometimes we even played for a while, so it was all good fun and I liked it.

I have been out to play quite a lot tonight and I will no doubt be going outside a few times more before bedtime.

Another Lazy Sunday

Sunday Chez Squeak is a lazy day and we all have a rest to make us fit for the week ahead and today was no exception. Me and my MH were up first and while she was having her breakfast, the old dear watched Jessica solving another murder and I sat on her knee and waited for my little drop of milk and then scooted outside.

I just had a little scoot 'cos it was cold and quite windy, and to be honest there isn't very much for me to do outside now and I know that when I come home there is always a knee for me to sit on or somebody to play with me so I am happier inside now.

When my DH got up he watched the football and then we all watched as Andy won his tennis match, although the old dear was quite nervous at a couple of points, but he did it. Well done Andy!

I stayed out quite late last night and my MH was quite worried about me 'cos it wasn't a very good night, but I was perfectly safe and when I decided to go back home, I just thumped my adorable little paw on the window and my DH let me in. My MH was already in bed, so I had a wee biscuit and then snuggled in beside her and in a wee while I was as cosy as toast and we both had a very good sleep.

I have had a very good day and have had some wee trips outside but lots of plays inside so my Sunday has been very good and I hope you have had a good day too.

What a Day

I nipped outside as soon as I had finished my breakfast and got the shock of my life when I felt how cold it was. Boy it was freezing! I had a run down to the edge of my path and scooted back inside again, and I'm afraid it has been like that all day. It has been wet and windy and very, very cold. Winter is here.

I sat with my MH lots of time and that kept us both cosy, but then she had to go out to do crafty things with her friends, but she wanted to be back quickly to watch Andy's tennis match 'cos she was hoping he would become number one. A while later, she comed back in and she was cold, but when my DH told her the very good news about Andy, she was happy and gived me a big cuddle which warmed her up again.

I was a wee bit frightened tonight 'cos I heard lots and lots of bangs and I didn't want to go out 'cos I didn't know what it was but then the old dear told me that people were blowing up somebody called Guy Fawkes and he was making a big noise about it, so I was a bit happier. I am not sure if that is the right story 'cos I was watching Strictly at the time and maybe didn't listen properly, but maybe you will know all about it anyway.

If they have stopped blowing him up and making big loud noises before my bedtime, I will probably go outside for a wee while. I will just need to wait and see what is happening.

My Favourite Day

You all know that I am a very happy little puss and always have lots of good times in my house. I only have to ask, and my humans will play with me whenever I feel like it--- and I do like playing. However, Friday has got to be my very favourite day 'cos it is string day and I love that.

And today was no exception. In fact it was even better 'cos my MH had ordered lots of boxes and they ALL comed with string! I think the people in the shops know all about me and send string to keep me happy.

So, while my MH was putting away all the food things, me and my DH played in the kitchen with the string and it was super fun, but then he had to help her, so I just played all by myself and I made them both laugh when I carried the string into our bedroom and played there for a while.

I watched while my humans were being busy, but as soon as my MH was finished, I did my silly run which tells her I want to play and I scooted into the bedroom and when she comed in, I was holding the string ready for us to play again and she told me I was a very clever puss. But I knew that already!

I have had a very good day and I have also been outside quite a lot, but it is cold and wet and windy so I don't stay out too long. I think winter is definitely here and I am going to need lots of warming-me-up cuddles now.

But I am not complaining! :-))

I think...

..... I will have to ask my MH to get me a wee raincoat 'cos I am getting a tad fed-up getting soaking wet every time I go out. I think I might look rather fetching in a multi colored little mac and it would also mean that my humans would be able to find me in the dark. A plan, or what?

I have been out a lot of times today and sometimes I managed to get back home before the rain catched me, but another time I was absolutely ringing and my MH needed a ginormous towel to make me dry again. The only problem with a little coat is that if I am not wet when I go home, I wouldn't get cuddled dry again. Hmm. More thought needed, methinks.

I was out very late last night and I enjoyed myself. My DH was tired 'cos he had been at the Shop and so when he went to bed, he just left the window open for me, but my MH stayed wakened until I came home and she gave me a wee biscuit and shut the window before we snuggled down for a good sleep.

I haven't done very much today but I have helped my humans and have had a few little naps in between getting wet, but I have had a good day. I am getting into winter mode now which means that I am more of an indoor cat than in the summer, but there is always a human to help me not get fed up or bored.

And that's all I need.

Still Very Quiet

It is taking me a wee while to get used to it not being summer and it seems that every time I go out just now I get soaking wet. My little birdie friends have all gone away and soon the cows will be going inside for the winter, so there is nothing much for me to do when I go out, but I still need to be outside.

My humans know that I am a bit unsettled so they keep talking to me and stroking me and every time I ask my MH to play, she does 'cos she knows I need to use up all my energy, but it's not the same. I love it when she plays with me, but I still need to get lots of fresh air.

It is getting dark very early now on my little island and my MH closes the curtains before we have had our dinner and then she has to open one again to let me sit on the window sill and decide when I want to go out.I like the dark and go outside every single night and if I feel like it I don't come home again until it is very late and sometimes my MH gets worried about me, but so far I have always been safe.

I have managed to get myself soaking wet twice this afternoon and my MH says I will need to be careful that I don't shrink, but as soon as they cuddle me dry again, I am back to my normal, adorable size! Hee hee

Just Normal

That's what my day was and that was just fine. My DH was home and I helped him do his bits of work while my MH was doing some housework but I wandered to where she was every wee while and she was always pleased to see me.

I got my wee drop of milk in my bed this morning and I think I would like that every morning. I was having a little rest 'cos I had been outside quite early and when my MH finished her breakfast, she came and found me and gave me my milk and I lapped it all up and then went back to sleep.

Our friend M. came into my house in the afternoon with a parcel for the old dear and I sat beside him for a while. He doesn't really like puss cats so I am very careful not to upset him but he did stroke me when I sat on the arm of his chair, so maybe he will like me one day. I hope so.

Nothing very exciting happened today. The weather hasn't been very good but still I ventured outside and I did get wet quite a few times, but as usual I got cuddled dry again and I like that. I played with my humans too and we had good fun so although it hasn't been very exciting, it has been good.

I hope your day has been a good one too.
