I don't know if my cats are happy that I am back from my short escape to the South of France, because nobody showed special signs.

Pookie had accepted to be pet by her previous servant our son, who had bought Pookie in a pet shop in London, before she moved in with us for 3 months since 7 years, as our son had to move to Amsterdam.
Of course she wouldn't want to go back to him, laying around and being cute and pose for me as model is her life now !

Rosie is full of energy ! She runs around as quick as an arrow, jumps in the air to catch her mousies, attacks the armchair and bites in it and last but not least collects her mousies during the night and tidys them up in the kitchen around the bowls and always one or even two in the water bowl.

Arthur too is in full shape, tries to play with his girls, and only gets some slaps and hisses back, but as a compensation he helps us in the household. He never had shown any interest in the Christmas tree, but when we wanted to take it of, he had a quick check on baby Jesus in the creche and on the tree in general !

Then he meditated about what was going on

and tried out if the boxes were strong enough for all the Father Christmasses, angels, ceramic houses etc.

Finally when everything was packed and the boxes closed, he went with Mr. G. to the basement, tried to make him fall on the steps and then collapsed against the radiator for a well earned nap !

We don't get terribly excited when my human returns from being away either. The one time I was really happy to see her, she fired that petsitter because she figured she must not have done a good job!

Glad to see Pookie treating her previous slave with disdain :O) Rosie is manic, what's she been sniffing?!?! I do hope Arthur didn't chew the baby Jesus's head off or anything :O)))

Arthur your white fur looks so good with the red decorations.
Pookie, from a pet shop in London to a perfect cat friendly home in Waterloo....you are a lucky cat.

Mommy has only been away once for 2 night and when she got home, we sat there in disbelief then when she went to bed, we all piled right in to snuggle with her.
Mommy had our Christmas tree removed and locked us all up so we didn't bug her while she did that. Can you imagine that!?

Dear Rosie, I would love to play with you there someday! :)
So you could teach me how to catch a mouse!
purrs and love

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

When humans return, they must be shuned so they know not to do that again!
Love seeing the update on everyone!!

Hi Gattina,
they all look very relaxed and satisfied. I guess it is the warm place in a cold season, good food and evough servants, which makes them feeling good. I hope, you enjoy the same service.
Best greetings, Johanna

We think your cats missed you, Gattina. Maybe they just don't want you to get too confident. ;)
