CAT SELFIES & NEWS MARCH 17



I am soooo tired !



I am happy with my selfie !



That's the best you can get out of me ! After all I am 20 years old at Christmas !!



*****



No luck this week with the weather, it's still very windy and it rains ! The day my cleaning lady came and all cats disappeared probably in the basement, because outside cats and dogs were falling from heaven, Kim came home wet like a sponge. It was as if somebody had thrown a bucket of water over her, which was completely impossible. It took me a while to get her at least humid, to dry completely it took a couple of hours. And Kim who never wanted to be petted or brushed or even only touched, was happy to be rubbed with a towel !



In her private room : the bathroom she still sleeps in there but from time to time she moves



to Mr. G's room settles down for a long nap.



Arthur is happy with his new scratching post and uses it frequently but not like Rosie !



Rosie is in love with her scratching board ! She sleeps on it, plays on it, sits on it and at least our armchair remains untouched !



She only moves when I watch TV then she wants to sit with me, or when I am working on my PC then she has to check what I am doing.



Sometimes she lays on Arthur's rug to annoy him, and he patiently waits until she finishes her nap !



Sometimes she even allows him to share the rug with him !



And often in the evening we are watching TV together !

Sorry I only got an ear selfie, that must be enough for today !



I wonder if the flash comes out or not !



*****


Because of the rain and windy weather Arthur had returned to his winter headquarters. He moved from one radiator to the other sat in the open fire or slept on the sofa.



and Kim didn't move from her bathroom, only for her little business in the garage.



She still has her cold on one side of the nose and sneezes quite often and as Arthur had always watering eyes and started to sneeze too, I asked my vet to come, because I didn't see myself carrying two cats to her cabinet. I was a little afraid that Arthur would be again so aggressive like last time when she had to give him a shot to keep him calm. This time he had probably forgotten what had happened to him or maybe it was the fact that he was sitting on the kitchen table, but he was a very good boy. She could do all medical examinations  without any protests. It turned out that he was in perfect health, the running eyes were normal I just have to clean them and his weight was good too.
He jumped from the table and watched then Kim's turn.

Apparently Kim is a miracle, she weights nearly 5 kg (11 lbs), is in perfect health and can even still jump. The fact that she sleeps all the time is due to her old age of nearly 20 years (in December). For her cold I got medication and have to inject the drug into her mouth 2 times a day. For this I use a syringe without a needle. Kim is a brave girl and fortunately it went smooth so far.

When the vet was gone, I was exhausted, and the cats in good shape.



The only one who has nothing is little Rosie, she sleeps and runs around looking for invisible insects or whatever



she never tried to follow Arthur into the open fire.



As now she doesn't go out very often, she had used our armchair as scratching post and it started to look awful. I bought a fluff razor for the armchair and a scratch board for her pedicure. Now the armchair looks normal again after a treatment with he razor and Rosie is happy too.

Arthur too has used it and to inaugurate it, had peed on it ! Naughty boy !


Arthur for  winter


and for holidays

I saw a bird !!



Wanted ??

This week Arthur was a happy cat ! He could go outside, walking along the street, nagging dogs and saying "Hello" to people !



He sat in the sunshine



and rolled around happily on the warm tiles.

But then it got cooler and Arthur stayed again more inside. One day I came back from a restaurant and had meat with me wrapped in a napkin in my purse. The portions were so big, that Nicole couldn't eat all the meat and I had thought to bring it to Arthur.

I put my purse on the steps and went to take off my shoes. It took maybe 2 min ! When I came back, Arthur had already pulled out the napkin with the meat inside and had started to unwrap the package. When I took it away he growled at me, I quickly went upstairs put the meat in his bowl and he jumped on it like a starving tiger !



Then he took the meat out piece by piece and ate it on the oriental rag ! Posh cat and thief !
I had not had the opportunity to cut the pieces smaller, he had already taken them all away ! And I thought if I try to take away his prey, he would kill me !



Rosie despite sunshine remained a lazy cat and slept the whole day long on my bed



She also tried to help me in the morning to make my bed. What a kind kitty !



When I open the window in my room to get in fresh air Rosie moves to her bed in Mr. G's room. She has her habits !

Go away with your camera ! I am in a bad mood today !



and I don't move, I just had chicken and feel happy !





*****






Having spring weather in February is great ! Rosie does her little walks and checks if there are some hidden mousies. So far she hasn't found any !



The little cat figures had become green/grey and I had washed them with Chlorid and now they look white again.



For once Rosie posed like a model !



and then she was looking for her portion of grass to eat as salad, return inside and barf on a carpet.



After all these efforts, she finally collapses on the armchair



In the evening I have this nice view of synchronized grooming, one on the armchair the other on the floor, and then Arthur stretches to his full length and lets the heat penetrate into his belly.



He is happy that the sun is shining and stays outside until it becomes to cold.

A part from that, always hungry Arthur had opened a package of  chocolate cookies had eaten one leaving crumbs all over the sofa and the tiles. The damaged package was under the table. It took me a while to clean everything, while Arthur happily watched his servant !

Nice ! I am satisfied with my Selfie



No way that I leave my place and pose for a selfie ! This is my selfie



Of course after my beauty treatment I look as young as 18 years ago ! even the groomer said it, because I am not skinny, and my fur shines !





*****







Nearly 20 year old Kim had knots in her fur, because I couldn't brush her belly and long claws which I didn't dare to cut. I decided to take her to her groomer and hoped it wouldn't stress her too much.
Of course she sang in the car because she was locked in her carrier but once there she completely changed and started to purr !



The whole procedure long and she really seemed to enjoy her beauty treatment. I was surprised that still so many hairs came out.

On the way back I let her out of the carrier and she sat behind and looked out of the window, without saying a word.



and then once at home she went out ! The sun was shining and she sat a bit on the grass, before she returned in her bathroom and start her 24 h marathon sleep, poor thing was a little exhausted, at that age it's normal !

Arthur too enjoyed the sunshine and warm weather and moved outside !



The whole day until there was no sun anymore he lay on the terrace and tried to get brown (perhaps) but he didn't succeed.

Only Rosie preferred to stay inside and enjoy the sun through the window.



She did a "spring cleaning" with her fur and will probably go out later.



Before she had to strengthen herself by a beauty sleep before going on a walk.



This is little Isis my friend Nicole's cat. As a toy she has a mink tail (very posh) ! The 4 year old daughter of her neighbor found the tail and asked "Auntie Nicole, I found the tail, but where is the rest of the cat ?"
