CATS ON TUESDAY


The whole week we had a very strange weather. Cool, grey or rainy until 4 pm and then suddenly warm (up to 25° (80F) in the afternoon. To avoid colds you have to dress in several layers !

Cats have not this problem, they have a permanent fur coat for summer and winter, which you poor cat servant only notice by the loss of hairs. The vacuum cleaner is full each time.



Pookie has a new napping place, which she had never used, she sleeps now on the doormat in a corner besides the entrance. It took me some time to find her there, because I never looked in this corner. She also has more and more difficulties to jump on a sofa or chair, she puts her front claws in the fabric and pulls her back up. She doesn't like to be helped and doesn't seem to suffer either, her appetite is more then good and her fur shiny. But still I think I'll have her checked. I avoid to go to the vet if it is not really an emergency,  as it stresses her so much. I just will wait and see if it gets worse.



Arthur and Kim choose to sit outside out of the pouring rain under the pergola and watched the rain pouring down from my neighbor's roof.



But in the afternoon when I looked out of the window, I saw Arthur grooming to make himself a beauty before he started his walk along the streets for his neighbor watch.



What he also likes is to eat his salad, which is our grass and then hurry inside to barf on the best rags. When I see him doing that, I try to follow him, but mostly it doesn't work and I have to clean up the not yet digested grass.



Rosie is quiet often outside now probably looking for mousies, without success so far, for the moment she has lost all interest in her green mousies and leaves them everywhere in the house instead of dropping them in the food bowls. She likes to hunt little spiders which she eats with gusto !



and Kim lays around and as soon as I approach she runs away. Mr. G. has more success with him she stays. She is full of knots again and I absolutely have to take her to the groomer. Maybe she already feels my bad intentions !

We used to get cat grass, but SOMEkitty (ahem, Binga) kept hacking it up on the carpet, and my human got tired of cleaning it up.

We used to have cat grass but as we never ate any Mum stopped growing it for us.

Mommy recently planted some cat grass for us which we love. Daddy can't understand why Mommy would offer us grass which we eat only to vomit it out later. ;)

We hope there isn't anything worrying about Pookie. Maybe she sprained her legs?

Lucky for you because we have floods all over except in our house!

Arthur looks handsome in the streets and Rosie look menacingly cute in the lawn. Kim looks gorgeous and Pookie, well, she found the perfect spot!

Cats the world over are just the same. They eat grass so they can bring it up on the carpet later and leave stains.
How old is Pookie now? Charlotte heaves herself up on the bed leaving claw marks in my Coronation bedding but she is now 18 and a half yrs old.

Pookie is maybe feeling a little age related aches and pains. I also leave scratch marks when I jump up. The knots also sound familiar. Loved all the pictures. Hugs GJ x

Woof, I eat grass too and spew it on Keeper's legs!

I hope you do bring Pookie to the Vet's. I work for a veterinarian here in the U.S. and there are joint supplements you can add to their food to help with arthritis. A lot of kitties suffer in silence from this.

Maybe Pookie's joints are sore? Arthritis, perhaps? WE'll be curious to see what the vet has to say.

Love those pictures of Arthur walking on the street. He always makes us smile.

Rosie -- do those spiders taste good?

Kim, it's good to see you, even if you run away from Gattina. :)
