CATS ON TUESDAY



I am back into the cold, from Egypt's Red Sea where I had been on holidays for 12 days. I haven't seen a single cat, because we left the Hotel complex only once and of course the hotel didn't have any cats.

While I was away my cats had their holidays too, but Mr. G. had suffered. He had to get up very early in the morning to feed the opera meowing Pookie and often when he went to bed again he couldn't fall asleep anymore. Therefore he was happy that I am back, I get up early anyway.



But he and Arthur spent nice evenings together watching TV. Arthur is an easy cat, he agrees to all channels.

When I arrived late evening only Arthur greeted me, later Pookie showed up in hope to get some food. During the night I felt that Rosie had joined me in my bed. I petted her and she purred like a motor but suddenly she bit me in my hand so hard, that my hand is swollen and hurts very much. I have no scratches just one little point from her teeth. First thing on Monday morning I went to my doctor, meanwhile my hand looked like a balloon. I got a tetanus vaccine and antibiotics and hope it will heal soon.



The next day she avoided me because I had shouted at her and had given her a light slap. I don't know why she bit me, she had done it before but just a little for playing and never so hard. She has found a new sleeping place, the "old" basket of Pookie, which I had put in the living room in front of the radiator. Nice place to spend the winter time !



Balloon hand or not, I started with the Christmas decoration. Arthur made a little tour through the angels and balls, but was not very interested. The others didn't even show up.



But he thinks he looks very decorative on the christmassy table



When I woke up in the morning I found Pookie happily laying in her Ikea doll bed, just besides mine.

I'm glad you had your hand seen to--cat bites can be nasty.

What a welcome back!

Rosie like Shadow in that way. Grant petted him on the day bed on Sunday and ended up with a couple of holes in his arm. He was furious. But that night. Shadow lay on the couch next to him and purred like sweet kitten. Arthur is also like Shadow that he is interested in all that I do. Oh, I hope your hand is soon better. I don't think you word verification anymore. I'm going to change my settings too. Jo

Keep an eye on that hand - if it does not get better, go back to the doctor! Cat bites can get very serious.

When I was in The Gambia last month, EVERY hotel had its own cat(s). I hope you had a lovely holiday in Egypt.

Welcome home, Gattina. We were sorry to hear Rosie bit you, and hope your hand feels better soon.

Rosie, I am shocked at your behaviour. Have you not heard the old saying 'never bite the hand that feeds you'.? Or was 12 days a bit too long for MrsG to be away on holidays?

Love the Ikea doll/cat bed. Hope your hand is soon better.

You are so lucky to have so many wonderful cats. You mentioned on my blog that you figured out how to get the new word verification on Blogger. I would be interested in hearing how you did it. I tried changing my preferences back to no verification, but it didn't do a thing. - Margy

How odd that Rosie bit you. I hope your hand heals quickly.
