CATS ON TUESDAY


Lisa is really getting old and she also behaves like a naughty old woman ! She now sleeps in"her" room and she doesn't yowl anymore during the night. But once she has eaten in the morning she just sits in the middle of the house and whines or whatever noise it is, but certainly not a meauw. Just for fun and to get on our nerves.

As she is completely deaf, I lift her up and take her with me in my room so that she won't be alone, but that doesn't do anything either she keeps quiet for a while and then she looks for another victim, which means Mr. Gattino. Of course she only wants to sleep on the keyboard. If he moves her away she immediately comes back and I listen to some Italian swears ! This lasts the whole morning and then at noon she would go out for a little walk in the garden and then she takes her afternoon nap. She also has some arthrosis and can't bent down so good anymore.
Really she is so stubborn it's terrible, I have never had a cat like that !

Besides that she eats very well and sometimes even plays and has no other health problems.

Rosie is always very jalous with all other cats except with Arthur. But Lisa is still The Boss and able to run behind her and give her a slap ! So Rosie takes her revenge when Lisa is sleeping and lets her tail hanging down, then she would attack the tail and run away !

To show that she is a real Princess she needs 4 matress otherwise her delicate body is hurting !

Kim who is a good cat with everybody and a little stupid, thinks that she sleeps besides Arthur. She sleeps there every day when the sun is shining. Only it is a fake Arthur in plaster !

The real one waits until the sun is shining again and watches his females with philosophy !

Lisa sounds like a real handful. What a tough character she is! Do you think we'll get away with her type of behaviour when we get to be that old. I hope so!

Nice to see Kim after so long. She's so sweet.

Kim is such a pretty ladycat. So the sound isn't meowing, maybe she is just singing to you.

Lisa is really special~!
I really learn a lot from here about older cat, thank you~!
I think Arthur is a great balance character between your cats~!!

I had an old lady cat once named 'Sitam' or Blackie. Black in color, towards the end of her days, she turned brownish. But she never failed to be that high and mighty lady of the house!

Ok.....! now I know that you have a plaster made of Arthur! I thought I saw him in one of your garden pics, but he certainly looked 'different'...hahaha!

A good black and white contrast between Kim and Arthur! :)

You guys do a good job of keeping your humans wondering. Cats shouldn't be easy - or predictable.

I have never never ever find any blog with cats being stupid but this story so far stands out with its wit and catty humour.

Sorry Madam for messing up. It was first posted at Quadrat in Focus now "Have a Look!" and then I decided to create a special blog called "Halle's Crown". Here's the link, and I hope you will not have any problem in finding it.

Sorry, Mr Linky's entry to the cat blog is in number 5. I can't delete the number 4. My apology.

Oups, at first i thought it was indeed Arthur near Kim...
Poor Lisa poor you. I also never heard about that with cats. But it looks like she knows what she want. Maybe it is to much for her with all the other cats like Luzie. Luzie should better be the one and only cat in a house.
Hahaha, Rosie the princess on the pea!!!
Arthur the "womanizer" looks cute on the last picture.

Poor Lisa! She takes her place! You and after Mr Gattino! I thought it was really Arthur in the garden near Kim!

We think older cats can just do what they please - they earned it! Our Chica is 18 and still the boss cat.

catsynth said...

That's a great rundown of the whole family. Sounds like Lisa is getting a bit eccentric in her old ways. The one with Kim and "fake Arthur" is funny.

Puss-in-Boots said...

I think two cats are enough, as you'll see from my Cats on Tuesday post, five would drive me spare!

Maybe Kim prefers the pretend Arthur to the real one...lol.

Poor Lisa, because she's deaf she can't hear the noise she is making. Maybe she thinks she is purring.

Elin~ said...

FAke Arthur? That attract my attention!

Love to read about all your kities especially Rosie needs 4 matress to sleep! LOL!

Milo and Alfie said...

Poor Lisa, growing old is no fun. She may have aches and pains - or just be plain bored! We're pests when we get bored too! (tee hee!)

Princess said...

hahaha that is funny that Kim sleeps next to the fake Arthur. hahaha

Wonderful photos!

I love the idea of a fake cat especially if it confuses the real one. lol
My black/white Tatty (my son named him cause he couldn't say cat. He saw him at the SPCA and said I want that Tat so he became Tatty lol) was raised by my shepherd Max. So he thought he was a big dog and he acted like it too. One day our neighbors Rottweiler ran out from his yard. We tried catching it but couldn't Then came Tatty.
Tatty sat down close to me and waited for the Rotty. When he stuck his nose too close Tatty swiped at him and the Rotty got scared and came to hide behind me for protection from the cat lol
Thats how we caught him.
Size is irrelevant sometimes lol

oh, Lisa does look so like Emma. Emma is not as old as Lisa but she is also very, very persistent.
