CATS ON TUESDAY
When I came back from my tour around the UK, my cats didn't seem to have suffered at all during my absence ! I even wonder if they noticed it. Maybe Rosie.
Anyway, Arthur greeted me already at the car and showed me the way to the kitchen in case I had forgotten it.
He wasn't very happy that he had to share the sofa with me again and from a slim cat became big and bigger so that I had to move ! Finally we found an arrangement and could watch TV together.
When the sun came out he shared the bark with Kim. Apparently it's nice and warm, although I could imagine a more comfortable place then sleeping on bark.
As usual Arthur is a very helpful cat and while I was busy watching TV he mowed the lawn. At least he kept an eye on the robot. Satisfied with the result he returned home to check if there was something to eat in the bowls.
Pookie continues to sleep on Mr. G's bed and only checked my suitcase when I was unpacking.
But Rosie seemed to have missed me, because now she behaves like a chewing gum. She always sticks on me and my bed too shrinks !
In April Barbara from Words, Words, Words. wrote about a ginger cat who lives opposite Shakespeare's home. As we visited Stratford on Avon, I told the whole bus, that I wanted to look for this cat. As soon as we had free time, I started my investigations. After having asked in a first souvenir shop I was told the cat would live a little further in a souvenir shop. When I asked in the second shop the owner smiled, told me the cat's name was Angus and that he always walks up and down the street, and that he thinks that Angus belonged to another shop a little further down the road. I continued asking for the cat in the other souvenir shops too, but besides cute stories about Angus, I didn't see him.
All the people in this street knew Angus and apparently he goes into all shops and in winter sleeps in the once where the radiator is the warmest. They all will probably remember a crazy lady coming from Belgium to look for a cat and not for Shakespeare's traces ! Very intellectual indeed.
These are pictures from Barbara's blog, and it is such a pity that Angus didn't show up ! That would have been so funny.
and the same street when I was there last week. As it was a bank holiday in the UK, there were so many people coming for Shakespeare and not for Angus the cat, I must have been the only one.
When I got back into the bus, I was greeted with big smiles, they asked me if my researches had been successful, but unfortunately nobody had seen Angus. I am sure he was sleeping somewhere waiting that this bank holiday finishes and the tourists disappear and he would have the street for his own again !
