Freyja shows off her battle scar...

Freyja’s Baldy-Belly

Diminutive little Freyja may not look it, but she is six months old now, and had to have a trip to the vets to make sure there will be no other wandering stray kittens needing homes in a few months time. That was yesterday. Today she has been running around like an idiot antagonizing Arthur, and finally decided to have a rest from this on some extra-large bubble-wrap and show off shaved belly. I actually think she has barely noticed the entire episode, apart from being cross at not going outside.

The Princess and the Pea

The Princess and the Pea

For the last 3 nights Percy has eschewed the bed. Perhaps he feels that it is not soft and yielding enough to a cat of his considerable size. Instead he has taken to sleeping on the sofa that lives in the bedroom, on top of a pile of at least seven folded towels. He reminds me of the story of the Princess and the Pea. Unlike the princess, however, Percy is quite comfortable; Percy would be comfortable sleeping on the pea alone, in fact Percy could sleep in an entire field of peas.

I may have mentioned that I draw all of the Cat-of-the-Day drawings on my Samsung phone… and I may have mentioned that I loved the phone so much I recently bought a Samsung tablet that has the same pointy little stylus that I draw with but a much bigger screen (people ask me what software I use – it’s not the software, it’s the hardware that’s important).

However, just now I am drawing with the phone, because this is the bag in which the tablet lives. It is a valuable tool, and it is being closely guarded.

It was once the site of his Ancient Hunting Grounds, but Arthur is adaptable and has therefore seen fit to oversee the building that is going up next door. Only Stan is working next door today. Arthur is familiar with Stan and he can therefore be trusted to work for a few hours unattended, unlike other strange and unfamiliar building persons. Later this evening Arthur will go on a site inspection, just to check all is as it should be.
