Free speach banned!

Miaow dearest reders.

I am having to blog from Ian's PSP today, Ian and Donna have banned me from blogging. This follows posts being rude about Americans, sexual inuendo, religion bashing, global warming and on-line Pharmacies. What happened to free speach? I remember the days when I could call a Mouse a Mouse, not a vertically challenged Gerbil! mew.
Fear not, readers, my blog will continue, even if it involves posting from a dodgy Internet cafe full of spamming Russians! I will not be Silenced!!

Love and Purrs,

Global warming. Evidence: Proff Muffin.

Miaow my avid readers,

Mew all, trust you are all well, good! Miaow. For all those sceptics on global warming (read: USA Administration) I would ask you to review the chart relased by the U.K Met Office today. In plain human terms, it shows what you are doing to the planet with your mass burnings of the rain forests, and reliance on fossil fuels (although please dont turn the central heating off!! miaow)
The red line indicates the anomalies from the May to September average temp from 1659 to date in the UK, Those with sharp cat like eyes will notice the large fall just prior to 1700, this period coincided with "The little ice age" when the the UK had a climate more akin to my homeland of South Norway. There are few periods of sharp rise in temp in this series... until you hit the late 1980's, gawd guys, the anomaly line is as vertical as Ian's wedding tackle on a Sunday morning, mew! This rise is even faster than was predicted when global warming first came to the publics attention in the 1980's, For your Childrens sake, and all middle aged arthritic cats ACT NOW! support renewable energy, recycle, respect the planet, we all share it, it's not the property of the Human race! Hiss.
If your reading this Mr George Bush, you know climate change is inevitable, your denial of it is based on nothing other than the need of your insular country's massive need for Oil (did that have a bearing on your invasion of Iraq, methinks, Miaow) You call your self the leader of the worlds only superpower, if that's the case lead by example!!!!! mew, I'm furious! Anyhoe, must dash, gotta turn the central heating on, mew.

Love and purrs,

XBOX saga

Miaow devoted readers,

I trust you are all well? everyones fleas, worms, and STD's cleared up, hmmm? good, mew! Another lazy day for me (for a change) Donna went to Lamport Hall to a craft fair (Ohh, mew, posh or wot?) So she left at 930am, Ian crawled downstairs with another migraine and fed me. It was cool and foggy so relieved myself then retired back to bed with Ian, I'm sure my mewing worked wonders for his migraine, as he got up an hour later! maybe I have the Kitty healing touch? Ian went out in search of a new joypad for his Xbox, the left trigger failed yesterday, and despite Ian's usual ambitious repair attempts (read: prise open with screwdriver, shake it a lot, attempt to re-assemble, throw in bin!) we were joypadless, mew! how could we finish Half Life 2!!
Anyhoe this left me with the run of the house, I could of run riot, but, hey, I just fancied a snooze, mew. Ian got home with a new Joypad (a tacky chinky cheapo knock off job) around 3pm, and Donna returned an hour later (not from the craft fair, but a school auction) nothing for me, just some prezzies for Abi, and a tacky red gingham cushion for the sofa, gawd.. I'd seen enough, and retired to the patio to enjoy the late evening sunshine. Auntie Lizzie called 9ish, but only spoke to Donna! hiss, Ian was back in bed with a migraine. I'm perplexed why she didn't ask for me! after all I am the second most senior household member, mew! So a bit miffed about that! As I write, Ian has just got up (pointless, it's bedtime soon!) and Donna is trying to extend her Uni essay from 1000 to 3000 words by adding it's, but's, and's etc to bulk it out, mew, hopless! Well got to dash guys, just off the pester Ian for food, Miaow!

Gravity (Muffin conundrum 1)

Miaiow dearest readers,

Today I'm starting my conundrum posts, which will be a regular feature (maybe, mew) on my blog. These are questions that have mystified even cats throughout the last 120 years.
Anyhoe, suppose I could dig a hole from the North Pole to the South pole and dropped a dumb dog in the abyss, what would happen (other that a visit from the R.S.P.C.A!)
I assume the dog would fall at first, reach terminal velocity, then speed up even move under the pull of the earth's gravity. But what would happen when Fido reached the centre of the Earth? would it stop? or would it continue past the centre of the Earth towards to the South Pole? Upon the assumption that as it moved further from the Earths centre, gravity would slow Fido down, and would reach a halt for a fraction of a second by appearing feet first at the South Pole, then the process begins again. Would Fido spend eternity repeating this journey? could this be perpetual motion?
Any comments from scientists welcomed, Chavs need not apply, mew, hiss!

Love and purrs,

Black Witch Auntie Lizzie visit!

Miaow dearest, loyal readers,

Mew all, still feeling a bit groggy today, but getting back to normal, thanks for asking!! hiss!
Auntie Lizzie came to vist from London today, and true to form, bore gifts for yours truly! (she has a rare blood type, and goes to sensible lenghts to avoid a cut jugular! mew) A box of Hi-life 60% real fish was a delight to snatch out her hands. It was such a nice warm and sunny afternoon, we all dozed on the patio, and indulged in the magic weed (Catnip!) I tried to draw a picture of Lizze for you, I'm not sure it's accurate, I still feel doped. I know your all thinking "she looks much better than on her last picture" mew, perhaps she's had plastic surgery?. Anyhoe gotta dash, my butt wont lick it's self! mew

Miaow my beloved readers,

Well, mew, the last few days have been a blur! I dont really remember much since the weekend. I was met by Ian and Donna this evening upon returning from an unsuccsesfull hunting trip (my reflexes are still not 100%, mew) with the most far fetched tale since John Prescott said he was an avid flower arranger! Two cats? mental illness, CCTV, scheming cat!? I was perplexed. Anyhoe, for my peace of mind I took myself to Key Vet (on Donna's AMEX of course) Following a full examination and blood test, I was declared mentally fit, yaaay! But of concern, traces of Rohypnol (I believe the street slang is Roofies) were found in my system! miaow! Had I been drugged with spiked Whiskers Cat Milk? by oohh, another household member? or just happened to find one on the floor and mistook it for a small white Pringle? I am open minded, I'll let you folks make your own minds up..hmmmm? In the interest of household peace, I am dropping the matter. Cant wait for tommorow, Auntie Lizzie is comming up to visit me and Ian, SHE always brings gifts, and hence is normally welcome, mew!
Well must dash kitties, just have time to pop a worming tablet in Donna's Horlicks, mew!

Love and Purrs,

CCTV solves Muffin-Willow mystery!

Hello, all of Muffins readers, we are again having to 'stand in for her' today, due to her absence. But at least the mystery is solved! Myself and Donna decided to Install CCTV in the garden to monitor Muffin's movements, the results were a revelation!
Muffin-Willow has been leaving the house in the morning, changing into a tighter fitting catsuit, and support briefs to make her butt appear smaller, then comming back into the house posing as her cousin Miffim-Wallop, the process it repeated in the evening in reverse! Why you may ask? Well, as me and Donna see it, it's to have a Kitty laugh and play us other off against each other. Muffin is very rude to Donna, and worships me, Miffim...well it's the reverse. This way Muffin is able to get twice as many rude sarcastic comments in a day! This cat does not suffer with any mental illness, but is just as cunning, scheming cat as you could ever meet (but we love her to death!)
We will confront Muffin upon her 'return' we cant wait to her her explanation, I'm sure you will hear all about it on her post tommorrow. I wonder if we can get a refund on all the extra cat goodies we purchased when we thought we had two cats?

Love and purrs

Norweigan cat stud

Miaow my little kittens, trust you are all well, no furballs, Fleas, Ticks or Lymes disease? good, mew! Well settle in your favourite spot for my latest juicy Kitty news.
Sorry my Blog was written by Ian and Donna yesterday, hope it didn't bore you too much, but I was indisposed, Miaow!
Recently I have met a red hot stud-muffin of a Tom called Thor, I first saw his hunky swagger on a web cam from Longyearbyen in Spitzberen, my delicate refined side was replaced by the chav-cat within us all, and I mewed " I'm gonna shag that tom" So anyhoe, armed with Donna's Gold AMEX, I flew business class from Luton Airport to Bergen (paw room sure is tight with BA, even for a size 6 Kitten like me, mew) then an internal flight north to Longyearbyen. It didn't take long to find Thor, there must of been 20 floozie Kitties following him around town, tarts! Hiss! But as soon as he saw me, he only had eyes for me! I think my pink spangled hotpants first caught his roving eye! (pity about the -24c windchill though, mew!)
Well he invited me back to see his etchings at his swany pad, sooo kewl! all blue shagpile and green Lava lamps. We chatted about his work, he works as a mouser at the docks, hasn't seen one yet, but you never know! Imagine now if you will, waves crashing onto the beach in a 1950's movie, to save me the embarassment of describing what happened for the next 4 hours, meeew!
To ensure Ian and Donna cope on their own, my cousin, Miffim-Wallop, who just happens to live here, has been kind enough to commute daily to the UK to keep an eye on them!
Well must dash folks, my tongue is still frozen to this lampost..mew mew!

Cat Schizophrenia?

Hello Muffin-Willow's Dearest Readers,

We are having to write Muffin-Willow's blog today, as we believe that:
a) she is suffering fom Cat Schizophrenia
b) we now have two cats - although we never see them both at the same time!! Muffin-Willow AND Miffim-Wallop
c) we can put the record straight about the kebabs (no we weren't confined to either the bed or the toilet!)

Muffin-Willow disappears after breakfast - alledgedly to Longyearbyen to her new boyfriend Thor Love-Thunder-Hammer (Muffin first noticed him when she was viewing the Most Northerly webcam!) Shortly after, in through the patio doors wanders Miffim-Wallop, Muffin-Willow's lovely "cousin" from Longyearbyen. Then at dinner time, off goes Miffim and back comes Muffin!! Confused? We certainly are!!!!

Muffin-Willow is on great terms with Ian and totally rude about Donna (what, you hadn't noticed!!) and Miffim-Wallop is so lovely and polite to Donna and is even tolerant of Ian!!

It is very strange and confusing, given the fact that we never see them both together. They are more like identical twins rather than cousins. Although I would say that Miffim has a slightly more streamlined butt than Muffin - but that may just be a trick of the light.

Is anyone aware of any means of testing for Cat Schizophrenia and, more importantly(!) do you have a cure? Or DO WE HAVE TWO CATS!!

Hopefully Muffin-Willow will be back tomorrow!

Errr, Love and Purrs,

Umm? Muffin-Miffim-Wallop, Oh, we give up! xxxx

Blue Movie!

Miaow dear readers,

Mew all! super quiet lazy day today, Ian and Donna suffering the inevitable outcome of their misadventure with Chav Kebab and chips, and appear bed bound for the day...Yaaay, mew! (thank gawd the plastic bin bags saved the bathroom, dont ask about the duvet, mew, phew!) So I had the run of the house, fridge, phone, you name it, to myself today (still no third item broken! mew, claws crossed!) After a long snooze on the leather sofa, followed by a bout of banter with those darn Doves, I decided to settle down and watch a video. Full stocked with nibbles (Pringles, Prawns, Smoked Salmon, and Tabasco sauce) I mooched through my video!! found an old Adult home movie that me and Tom Cat made in the spring (any kittens reading, please log off now please, it's past the watershed dears, mew!) My it certainly got my kitty juices flowing I can tell you, had to cover the sofa in plastic bags to keep it dry, mew,mew! Dug out my favorite pink toy, ya know gals, umm...sorta Rabbit shaped, ya follow?? mew! A very pleasant hour followed, had to gag my mouth with Gaffer tape to avoid alerting Ian and Donna though, maiowyoooo, yisss,yisss, yissss!
Anyhoe, I'm over Tom Cat now, got a new real studmuffin of a Tom, long distance relationship though, but lust conquers all, mew! Blossom is welcome to Tom Cat, he's a mangy, flea ridden, two timing love cheat! But boy was he good in the bedroom department, meeew!
Anyhoe, gotta dash folks, cant keep this Video on pause forever!

Chav Kebab

Miaow avid readers,

Miaow, nothing broke today! our dysfunctional family crisis is over, Miaow! To celebrate (and avoid using the oven...just in case, mew!) we decided to forgo our normal Tesco Finest ready made meals for tea, and join the massed ranks of Chavs and indulge in Kebab roll an chips for supper (I declined the Kebab, I at least have standards, mew! and had CO-OP Turkey on the bone, miaowlicious!) Ian and Donna wolfed their kebabs, and declared them yummy, gawd they were even sober at the time! mew. The heartburn is setting in now, food poisioning will not be far behind, yuck! Anyhoe, must dash, just gotta line the bathroom floor with bin bags for the inevitable eruptions to come, mew!

Broken Combi Boiler

Miaow my little Kitties,

Well they say bad things happen in threes, mew! got my claws crossed that the third thing doesn't involve food! What with the weather being so chilly today, Ian thought this a good time to give the brand new central heating a good run out and check for leaks etc. I was over joyed, and curled up under the lounge radiator, mew! Unfortunatley the Combi Boiller ran for 20 minutes, then cut out! thermostat warning light on, miaow, woe! I must admit the radiators were so hot by this point I had scalded my tail, meyoowl! Daddy rang for a repair bod to come out....gonna be a long wait, just about everyone else in the UK had tried their central heating over the last couple of days, and they were stacked out with service calls, mew, double woe! The Thermostat light wont go out, so it's no hot water either (that doesn't worry me!) I have hibernated to the lounge chair to avoid frostbite, and am keeping out of Ian's way, (you can tell when he's really mad, he just keeps very quiet, rather than spout endless bullshit, mew) With any luck, the third bad thing wont happen! Hope to post more postive news tommorrow, mew!

broken bed

Miaow my curious kittens,

Cold and windy today, spent all day in the armchair snoozing, I hate the wind, it ruffles my new cut and blow dry too much, mew! I seem to be sleeping more and more these days, old age? Donna drugging me with Valium? or just the weather, only the Cat Gods know the answer.
My snoozing was disturbed at round about my Turkey treat time (8.00pm) when a huge bang from upstairs turned me from sleepy Kitty into a sprinting Panther (after I had Put my Nikes on, mew!) on the way upstairs, I could hear Ian and Donna talking in disbelief that the bed had broken....well...the images in my head were of two naked sweaty Minky Whales naked on the bed! To my surprise, both were full clothed, and the bottom left of the bed was at an angle resembling a dislocated paw, miaow! It turned out that Donna had sat on the end of the bed, and CRASH, it gave way (thank the lord I wasn't on it at the time, mew!)
On close inspection Ian or 'Dr Bodge job' as me and Donna call him, established one of the side batons had snapped, resulting in the collapse of many cross slats, and a a pile of sheared off 2" wood screws, miaow, woe, were would we sleep? After a ciggie and a coffee 'Dr bodge job' went to repair the bed structure, he called for his tool kit, (a BAD sign!) and asked to be left alone (he is getting quite stroppy at the moment, mew!) well an hour later, and 20 x 4" wood screws lighter, and covered in 'No More Nails For Wood' He came down stairs, and calmly announced the bed was fixed (But not to manufacturing specification, mew how the fear hit me!) Me and Donna checked it, it seemed OK, in fact, more sturdy that pre-collapse! The real Test will come tonight!
The moral of this story is DONT BUY FLAT PACK FURNITURE FROM ARGOS, IT'S CRAP! Well must dash folks, just gotta help un-glue daddy from the sofa, mew!!

Raunds Northants (My Manor!)

Miaow my little furballs,

Just a quick post today. For all of you who dont know where Raunds is, I have enclosed a map, so you can feel closer to me when reading my Blog! Raunds has a population of 8,800, most of them inbred so local folklore has it, mew!
Raunds main claim to fame besides the drunken teenagers outside the Spar, is that it held the UK official highest recorded Tempreature at 36.9c from 1911 until it was beaten by Cheltenham with 37.1C in 1990. (The current record is 38.5C recorded in Brogdale in August 2004) It is also the only place in the UK to record the Highest and lowest tempreatures any where in the UK in the same year! mew wow! The Met office station closed in the 70's, which seems so unfair, hiss! So people like me and Daddy keep the flame burning with our amatuer weather stations. Anyhoe, gotta dash folks, time to read the rain gauge, and check last nights grass minimum...Ohhh a Cat as a deputy observer! I'm so proud, miaow!

Birthday Cat

Miaow my dear friends,

I am rather devestated today, it was my 7th birthday on the 29th of September, and everyone forgot! (including me, mew!) Ian and Donna have promised to make it up to me at the weekend, and Auntie Lizzie sent an Email wishing me a happy belated birthday..Miaow!
To be frank, birthdays are no longer the ball of endless wool they used to be, rather a time to pretend I like the god damn awfull gifts I receive (last year Donna sent me a plastic ball full of ground glass!) that soon found it's way into her morning salted Ready Brek I can tell you! mew!
Seven is a hard age to be, your Kittenhood is behind you, and on your eighth birthday you become eligible for 'Senior' cat food, mew, sob! It's rather like you humans finding out your old enough to go on SAGA holidays! Well must dash, the old arthritis is giving this middle aged cat hell today, maiow!

Weather report September 2006

Miaow my little kittens,

Being the first of the month, it's of course time for my 'I'm not just a pretty face post!' so anyhoe, prepared to be thrilled by Ian (and mine, I'm deputy observer dont you know! mew!)

YET ANOTHER recorded breaking month, Miaow! The UK as a whole recorded it's Warmest September since records began, following the same feat being achieved in July this this year. Provisional figures from the Met Office advise the CET (Central England Temp) which covers a triangle roughly defined by London, Bristol, and Manchester equals the previous high, set in 1729. This is the longest series of climate records in the world. Miaow, I think global warming may be true after all! mew (must stock up on bikini's!) Here in the South East Midlands of England we recorded an average maximum of 22.0c, and an average minimum of 13.5c. This was our warmest September on record (our records only go back to 1992 though!) and the first time that we have recorded a warmer September than the preceeding August. It's really turned Autumnal the last few days, Miaow, I wonder what October will bring?

Cat fishing

Miaow my little kitties,

Mew all, how ya doing? fleas all cleared up? good! I've been tempted for sometime to try a spot of fishing in next doors fish pond. I dont own a rod, so fashioned one out of a garden cane and spider web for fishing line (mew, I remember reading it's twice the strength of steel!!) I couldn't find a maggot for bait (and Ian wouldn't let be borrow his 'Wedding tackle' mew, mew!) so used a cheese and onion flavour pringle as a subsitute! So all kitted out I sneaked under the fence, stopped off for a 2 hour snooze on the way as a sunbeam hit me, and took position by the pond.
To be frank, I thought I might catch a Goldfish or two, but when I reeled in my first fish, imagine my shock to find it was a Turkey Zebra Fish!...I knew this was gonna be my lucky day, maiow! a Horse Mackerel was next, followed by a Sea Bass, a Red Snapper, a Blue Marlin, a Puffer Fish, a Seahorse, an Ocean Sunfish, a pale Chub, AND a Dorrado!! this was clearly a magical pool, miaow! After devouring the entire catch, I had to mew for hours for Ian to collect me! I was just too stuffed to move! Anyhoe, what a day, shame I stank of fish so much! when Donna came home, she was convinced it was her, mew! she spent 3 hours in a Dettol filled bath! I didn't have the heart to tell her and ruin her lazy soak in the bath! Well, mew, must dash still have fishbones stuck in my gullet, maiow!

Animal Crossing Animals deserted!!

Miaow my little kitties,

I have some shocking news to report regarding Donna and Animal Crossing!! She has abandoned the Animals of donanook for the new game she bought - New Super Mario Bros. Oh she is so cruel and heartless, miaow!

I can tell you that Aurora (the cute penguin) is ill and requires medicine, Kody (the muscle man) is desparate for green furniture and depending on Donna, as for Drake (the tasty looking duck, yum, miaow!) was supposed to visit at 11pm last night AND where was Haggis Chops at 11pm? Yes, you guessed it - trying to play on New Super Mario Bros (and not doing very well I can tell you, miaow), Aurora was left without medicine and may need to be hospitalised.

I think I may have to either steal her Mario game card, or take to looking after the animals myself.

Oh she is soooooooo cruel.

Ford Ka, an ode to Scarlet

Miaow dearest readers,

Trust you are all well, and upto date on your worming tablets? Well, I haven't been killed by Auntie Lizzie yet, mew, phew, she must have been to drunk to read the post! I'm saved! Today I have decided to dedicate my post to my bestest friend Scarlet, and spent all last night writting an "Ode to Scarlet" I hope you all like it, you'd better, hisssss!

Scarlet looks superb and majestic,
From sunny Clapham, "The talk of the town"
With colour red silky metallic,
Her dignity will grow on it's own

Even the rich appear to go for her,
Five geared, with mileage nearly 42,
Such ample space for shopping; seats as soft as fur,
She's the Ka that all the Audi TT's want to woo.

She stands so cute outside the house,
And glows with beauty, all appreciate,
She's the Ka to make a perfect spouse,
Witty and pretty, she's never late.

With Scarlet, any distance you can go,
Comfort, style, she can even sew!

Love and purrs,

Evil Cival Servant (Auntie Lizzie)

Miaow my avid readers,

Miaow, all, I can hold my forked tongue no longer! I have given Auntie Lizzie my word as a Cat not to identify her...mew so I cant! But she is an evil women, mew! I fear for my ninth life by just making this post, mewyooow! But an example of her scheming plotting mind, so typical of a senior Government offical must be told, miaow yiss!!
When she was a kitten, she took great pleasure in standing at the top of the stairs at her parents house, and screaming "Ian, stop it, owww, please dont hit me" she would have already pinched herself to show evidence of poor Ian's alledged crime! Mother used to run upstairs, comfort Lizzie, and punish poor Ian for nothing, mew! It is little wonder that Ian has grown up with a raft of mental health issues, and a fetish for latex and spandex, ohhh, mew!
I dread to think how she treats her staff and my bestest friend Scarlet, why, the poor car doesn't even have a car flap to use when it's cold outside! Anyhoe, the picture is an accurate likeness for Auntie Lizzie, I haven't broken my word by identifing her directly, but I'm sure some one will recognize her (with luck, the Government Minister she works for, mew!)...........come to think of it, Auntie Lizzie would make a great Cat! mew,mew,mew!
Anyhoe, gotta dash folks, just got to board up the front door, and hide in the shoe cupboard!

Cat Hair

Miaow my little kittens,

Having another lazy day today, not much happening in the suburban savanna today. Decicided to snooze on the bed until dusk, then nip out and nab a brace of mice, miaow!
I'm going through a good moult at the moment, everytime I scratch, a cloud of hair drifts into the air, cool, mew! I think Ian was dropping a hint when I found this poem left under my breakfast bowel this morning! Perhaps I should try some of Donna's 'Herbal Essence Shampoo' ya know, the one with the cool ad? when the women is giving it "yiss, ohhh yisss, yisss, Yissss! (sounds like Donna on a Sunday morning!! mew, meeyoo!)

Cat hair on the duvet,
Cat hair on the chair,
Cat hair in the casserole,
Cat hair on my best coat,
Even on the Mice,
You live and eat and breathe Cat hair,
When Muffin shares your house.

Miaow my beloved readers,

Miaow, miaow, miaow miaow!!!! How exciting has my weekend been! The wonderful Donna had to fly to Glasgow yesterday for work (and to squeeze in a visit to her dad!) and GUESS WHAT?!? She took me with her!! Oh it was so exciting as I had no idea that she had hatched this plan. Oh she is soooooo wonderful, miaow.

The first clue I had was when I saw two bags sitting by the door as she was about to leave. She was about to get into the car to go to the airport, and then she told me to jmp in as I was going with her.

She though it would be a good excuse for me to research my family tree - I am afterall related to Robert the Bruce, miaow!

Anyhoe, we got to the airport and checked in, went through security and hit the duty free. Oh we had such fun in the make-up and perfume department. It made the fact that our flight was delayed all the more bearable, miaow!

The flight was rather pleasant, and we arrived in Glasgow to be greeted with blue skies and bright sunshine (no, I couldn't believe it either readers, miaow!). Donna then headed of to Annan and I headed into the city. Rather than trace my roots I hit the shops. I could not believe the number of designer stores - look out Daddy, this months credit bill will be astronomical, mew!

In the evening I hit the town and went dancing, and met myself a handsome cool cat called Hamish - ooh he was lovely, mew.

Sunday afternoon came too quickly, and it was soon time for Donna to finish at work and come collect me for our return journey home.

What more can I say but thank you Donna, you are so lovely (sometimes, miaow!)

Till next time.

Pet Spider

Miaow my avid readers,

I have never really quite managed to understand Donna and Ian (I speak Human, but that's not the point) During this very warm September the windows and patio doors (my tradesmans enterance, mew!) have been open a lot, as a result the house is full of Daddy Long Legs (and gawd only knows what else!!) We must of been putting 20 a night out recently. Of course I have done my bit, if I have been bored I've pounced on the odd one or two.
We also have lots of spiders! one in particular lives at the top of the patio window, and Ian keeps getting his face caught in the web all the time, mew, mew! Donna, being a short arse, doesn't suffer this problem! Anyhoe, they have learnt to tolerate this 8 legged monster, as they noticed that it's web is usually full of insects, so have allowed it to stay in situ, as Ian says "it's earning it's keep" I think that was aimed at me, miaow! They have even started to feed it!! ohh, yisss, I kid you not! they pop a couple of Daddy Long Legs in it's web each evening, boy does that spider shift quick when food hits it's web. They take great pleasure in watching it eat, all thats left by morning is a dried husk dropped on the floor. It even has a name now! Harriett, I ask you miaow!
Perhaps I'm parionoid, but are they planning to replace me with her! mew!! Well just in case I will be on best behavoir for a while to play safe! Well must dash folks, just going to buff up the kitchen floor with my tail, a cats work is never done, mew!

Love and purrs,

Advice for kittens

Miaow my beloved readers,

Well after yesterdays hot sunshine, it's just been raining Dogs and Dogs today, retired to the bed to write some words of wisdom for my younger kitten readers. I have used Bagpuss as a picture, beacause he is without doubt the wisest and coolest cat I have ever met (we dated when we were younger, mew!) I hope and kittens reading this take note, these words of wisdom may save you much distress, and enrich your life at the same time, Miaow!

Beware bathtubs, they are tricky, and can get your paws wet without warning!

Miaowing gets treats from Humans.

Humans make great pillows, if you can stop them wriggling!

When crawling into tight spaces, keep an eye on the exit!

Moderation is for Mice; eat all the food in your bowl, and it'll be refilled.

Love and purrs.

Hurricane Maria

Miaow my little kittens,

Hi guys, trust everyone well, no Ticks or Fleas? good! Here in good old Blighty we have been following the track of ex Hurricane Maria with interest, because although now downgraded to a Tropical Storm, it's making a bee line for us! Dire warnings were issued by the Met Office of winds gusting to 80/90mph....but anyhoe it just missed us! mew! as you can see from the map, it's now on a collision course with Iceland, STILL rated as a Tropical Storm. UNHEARD OF Miaow! As it happened we were on the warm side of the storm, and although very windy (I lost my Burbury Berret, mew!) we enjoyed cloudless skies and 30C (86F) unseasonably hot for late September. As a matter of interest, we are currently running at 4c above our September average, mew phew! what on earth is happening to the weather?
Well gotta dash folks, my cat milk is turning sour in all this heat. Perhaps I jumped the gun in putting the central heating on, as it's the first day of Autumn?

Love and Purrs,

Arctic Webcam!

Miaow my little kittens,

Hope your all well, and no one has fleas or furballs! You REALLY must check out this web cam from the land of my origin Svalbard (Spitzbergen) in the Arctic ocean. It is situated in the port of Longyearbyen. I lived there for a year whilst involved in a a Catnip smuggling ring, mew! At nearly 80 degrees north, it claims to be the most northerly web cam in the world ( if you look closley, bottom left on the archived picture from September 2004, you can just see me disemboweling an Elk, Miaow) Please check it out, it is addictive.

Love and purrs,

Mouser Muffin

Miaow my little furballs,

Mew all, spent a very pleasant day in the garden today, half shade and half sun, purrfect! Perchance some rustling alerted my feline senses to MICE!, seeing I was soooo comfortable, and mice are at there most active dawn and dusk, I decided to investigate later (why waste a sunny warm day?)

Anyhoe, later in the evening, we were all having supper, Donna and Ian had Toad in the Hole, I had my usual plate of of Honey roast turkey. We all eat on the floor, using a free newspaper as a tablecloth, or the Times if we are feeling posh or eating Tesco Finest. Miaow, you may wonder why we eat on the floor, well since the fire (ahem!) we dont have a table, just a breakfast bar (which will not accomadate Donna's ample frame, let alone Ian's at he same time, mew!) As soon as I see that paper go down, I camp on it, sometimes upto an hour and wait for my supper.

After wolfing mine down, it was a comment made, "She came, she ate, she went" that made me remember the mice! I'm often accused of contributing nothing to the house except Furballs, vomit, and bad odours, miaow! cutting! So I saw this as golden chance to pop some food on the table for the guys. I stalked back to where I had heard the rusting (after changing into a camoflage catsuit first!) and behold...a nest of field mice...ohh joy! caution thrown to the wind, I bellyflopped onto the nest, and picked a mid sized, rather dazed mouse, clasped it tightly between my gums, and proudly took my prey to the dinner table (ahem newspaper!) Ohh how I laughed as Ian congratulated me, and Donna reeled back in Horror yelling "Muffins got a mouse!" mew, mew! Ian lifted the mouse by the tail, to check if it was still alive, at once I snatched it back, Miaow, it was just a symbolic act, not for sharing!! The mouse was later found on the patio, sucked and gummed to death. I did redeem myself with Donna later, by pouncing on two Daddy Long Legs in the lounge (I normally ignore these, but was still feeling playfull, Miaow!) Donna hates them, and even said I was a "good Cat!) Miracles never cease!

Anyhoe, must dash folks, still have my copy of National Geographic to read (big section on Tigers this month! I still need a new poster to cut out for the inside of the shoe cupboard now that Tom Cat is history....meeewwwwl!!!!

Love and purrs,
