CATS ON TUESDAY
Yesterday I decided it was washing day because the laundry basket was more then full. Arthur who was busy in doing his sleeping marathon woke up when I opened the machine. That's a day he likes. So he forgot that he was tired and ran over to me in the kitchen and while I put the laundry from the basket into the machine, he decided to help me.
Arthur jumped to help me
He pulled out one of my bra, apparently he likes them and started to carry it under the kitchen table. I was afraid that he would disappear with it through the catflap, so I tried to get my belonging back and save my bra, I didn't want that my neighbors got a closer look on my underwear. Arthur disagreed and while I was pulling on one side he pulled on the other and got almost angry. Finally I managed to get it back and quickly put it in the open machine.
Arthur was very upset and watched me like a statue while I filled in the machine. When the drum started to spin he looked at the glass door as if it was his favourite TV show and even jumped against the door. He scratched like mad and tried to catch what he saw. But after a while he gave up. Very disappointed and offended he walked away.
He is very offended !
I really was very surprised by Arthur's unusual energy showing that he was still alive but then I saw him collapsing on the sofa exhausted from this effort and he fell into a deep sleep.
Apparently not deep enough because when I took the laundry out he suddenly showed up again. He smelled at the wet laundry and was impressed. It smelled so good. He helped me again with filling in the basket : I pulled on one end he on the other. He didn't give up so easily and sometimes I lifted him up as he hung clipped to a towel. I thought that this is a good exercise for my muscles. Finally he gave up, turned around and directed himself immediately to another napping place, tail up of course. He also has his pride. I got the impression that he was the winner in this duel. Later I only saw him with his nose in the food bowl, otherwise he slept in different places and still does.
And that's what I saw the rest of the day !
Rosie wasn't interested at all in the washing machine, she played and played with her little mousies.
and here we are in the evening watching TV, Rosie is exhausted
look how she sleeps on my lap !
