Arthur is happy ! The weather is nice and as fall has officially started our neighbors are working in their gardens. So each day Arthur is underway to check how far they are with their garden work and occasionally helps digging. Unfortunately sometimes he is chased away, which he can't understand as he only wanted to be helpful !

For his personal business he has chosen our freshly mowed lawn, because it smells so good and therefore inspires him.

He still loves this place from where he can have an eye on our terrace and watch what is going on.

Or he sits outside on the window sill and observes us in the living room, unfortunately when I took the picture he just turned his head around.

Rosie is rather lazy lately and does a sleeping marathon, besides me in the evening when I watch TV

or on my bed, with her tail elegantly draped around her.

I think I should hang a bowl with food around Pookie's neck, as I have seen with horses. She costs us our last nerves with her steady meowing ! The vet told me that this is normal, some cats become very talkative when they are old, and unfortunately Pookie belongs to this category.

Even when she rests peacefully she talks to herself, luckily not loud. Fortunately she doesn't meow during the night and sleeps until 6.30 or sometimes 7 am, but then she starts her daily concerts. If she was a human she would be 88 !

(only I have no more teeth)

Binga is quite talkative too, but fortunately she sleeps about as much as most cats, and she's quiet then.

I would never chase Arthur away and as far as Pookie, she is probably deaf now.

If I were your neighbor Arthur would be welcome to help out with my gardening.

How dare anyone tell Arthur to go away. Pookie is so cute, it is good she sleeps all night.

Everyone looks very content. I've never had a cat get more vocal as they've gotten older. That's really interesting.

How lucky you are to have sunshine in your garden. Sadly here it is absolutely pouring with rain and it's supposed to last into the night!!

Purrs to Arthur, Rosie and Pookie! Enjoy the lovely weather while it lasts.

It seems everyone has their own routine. That is terrific that Pookie is eating so well at 18. We are going through lots of vocalization with Fiona because of the appetite stimulant, so we know what you are going through. Sending lots of purrs to everyone.
