I am back into the cold, from Egypt's Red Sea where I had been on holidays for 12 days. I haven't seen a single cat, because we left the Hotel complex only once and of course the hotel didn't have any cats.
While I was away my cats had their holidays too, but Mr. G. had suffered. He had to get up very early in the morning to feed the opera meowing Pookie and often when he went to bed again he couldn't fall asleep anymore. Therefore he was happy that I am back, I get up early anyway.
But he and Arthur spent nice evenings together watching TV. Arthur is an easy cat, he agrees to all channels.
When I arrived late evening only Arthur greeted me, later Pookie showed up in hope to get some food. During the night I felt that Rosie had joined me in my bed. I petted her and she purred like a motor but suddenly she bit me in my hand so hard, that my hand is swollen and hurts very much. I have no scratches just one little point from her teeth. First thing on Monday morning I went to my doctor, meanwhile my hand looked like a balloon. I got a tetanus vaccine and antibiotics and hope it will heal soon.
The next day she avoided me because I had shouted at her and had given her a light slap. I don't know why she bit me, she had done it before but just a little for playing and never so hard. She has found a new sleeping place, the "old" basket of Pookie, which I had put in the living room in front of the radiator. Nice place to spend the winter time !
Balloon hand or not, I started with the Christmas decoration. Arthur made a little tour through the angels and balls, but was not very interested. The others didn't even show up.
But he thinks he looks very decorative on the christmassy table
When I woke up in the morning I found Pookie happily laying in her Ikea doll bed, just besides mine.
As Pookie can't jump on my bed anymore I found the perfect solution !
I had seen on a blog a doll bed somebody had bought at Ikea and had transformed it into a bed for her cat ! I found this a wonderful idea ! I bought the bed, Mr. G. assembled it and now Pookie is happy to have her own bed besides mine !
Arthur didn't mind that I put a napkin on him while he was hoping to find some food in the still empty plate !
While you are reading this I will sit in the plane and fly into the warmth and sunshine of Egypt. Rosie supervised my packing, she will be the only one who will miss me.
Kim never realizes if I am there or not, so she can groom herself in peace.
and this afternoon I will be here, enjoying the beautiful hotel, the food and the warm weather for 12 days !
