Sorry, I cut off my ears !

It worked ! I smiled directly in the lens !


We still have summer temperatures even up to 25° or more ! The cats are happy, they go out and enjoy the probably not for ever lasting sunshine and warmth.

Kim is still in the bathroom, I think she wants to stay alone and not with Arthur and Rosie. As it was too much gymnastic for us to go to the toilet because she slept on the rag, I put it on the other side, where she doesn't disturb anybody and now she sleeps there. 3 times per day I bring her food and she eats it all !

In the mornings she often sleeps on the grass, or also sometimes late afternoon. She is old and takes it easy. She walks very slowly, but she still walks. I hope that one day she just falls asleep forever, and I don't have to stress her and take her to the vet !

I have got a selfie stick and tried it out with Arthur but he didn't want to smile into the camera !

Not very polite he arrived to great me when I came home !



Besides some scratches on my nose I think I look handsome enough for the neighbor's cats !

You do my selfie, I want her with me !!


Fortunately in human News there are always tragedies happening, otherwise the broadcaster would go bancrupt ! In my cat world there are no tradgedies, worse there is nothing new happening !

Difficult then to give you news.

Arthur uses the last sunrays for sunbath and warms up his old bones.

Kim goes out each morning at the same place and sometimes even when it is cold and rainy, she has her routine and doesn't understand that sometimes she has to sleep inside, of course still in the bathroom. Her fur is getting brown and she looks more and more like a mop, except her back and her face which remain unchanged. I start to worry about her, although she still eats, she often barfs, and her back starts to get stiff. I don't want to take her to the vet and stress her, I'll observe her and if it gets worse, then I will go next week.

Rosie has brought me two mousies this week, one lay in my room and I nearly walked on it, the other one was besides the bowls in the kitchen. When she has done her job, she sleeps the whole day !!



My upside down selfie came out very well !

I have to listen what he says

No time for selfies I have to clean my paw !


Spending the whole day outside in the warmth of the sun, is finished. It's cool to cold now in the mornings and in the afternoons it's only a little better.

Rosie adjusted her lifestyle and choose the warm radiator to sleep on

Kim has difficulties she wants to sleep in the grass but it's humid now and she has to return into the house, in "her" bathroom where she spends her days. I tried to show her another place to sleep and closed the bathroom door, put her little carpet at the entrance where she used to stay before, but she sat in front of the bathroom door and meowed heartbreakingly. And as usual she won. I have to find  a compromise, it's getting really annoying with a cat who sleeps on the toilet carpet if you have to go there.

Rosie since grown up nags the poor Arthur, here she doesn't allow him to go inside. And good tempered Arthur waits until the way is free !

These are probably the last pictures of Rosie and Arthur using the garden furniture, before we have to put them together and cover up for the winter.

Fortunately the bark is still a bit warm and Arthur enjoys the sunshine there.

Compared to the past the weeks are rather boring. When I got the word "potential" to knit a story around this word, immediately Arthur came into my mind and I made a resumé of Arthur's talents and potentials here



I wanted a profile selfie and it worked quite well !

Hey ! you took the camera away too early !!

Where is the button, ah, yes now I see !


For the moment Rosie et Kim are always at the same places and don't move, or yes they move one from the sofa to my bed and the other (Kim) from the garden to the bathroom. Yes she is still there and we don't know how to convince her to choose another place ! She is very stubborn.

The only one who doesn't behave as if he would live in a retirement home is Arthur !

He still walks around when it doesn't rain and when I come home rolls on the red gravel and gets pink !

and he is still stealing food ! Mr. G. showed him that he didn't eat meat but only a waffel, with the result that when he went to the kitchen and left his waffel on the table, Arthur didn't miss the opportunity to bite off a little piece !



Ok, that's the right pose !

Today I look good

you distracted me !!

Never made a selfie, the camera smells good (says Iris my friend's cat)


The daily "autumn" season routine has now influenced their life style. Kim seldom sleeps on the grass, it's mostly a bit wet.

She still sleeps in the bathroom and blocks the access to the toilet ! Thinking it over it's not so bad because Mr. G. HAS to do some gymnastic, he is so lazy in this respect.

Arthur lays on the heating and watches what birds are sitting in the hedge, if there are some, a part from magpies and crows there is nothing, I think they have eaten all the little birds.

The only adventure Arthur had this week which made me laugh, was when a group of Jehovah witness rang the bell and when I opened the door I saw 5 women standing there with their brochure, looking grey and dull, the only one who didn't fit in this group was Arthur who had chosen to sit amongst them, as if he wanted to convince me too ! The women were a bit surprised that I had to laugh when I saw Arthur there, bringing Jehovah's messages ! I told them in German that I don't speak French, wanted to let Arthur in and close the door, but Arthur escorted them to the street and followed them a bit. He is a very polite cat !

Besides taking care of her beauty, and eating, Rosie leads a lazy life, from time to time I see her climbing over the hedge and inspecting the neighbor's garden.

But her favorite occupation is still sleeping on my bed.

Nicole's little Isis had broken her hind paw, but now it's healed and the bandage is taken off. She is back to her old self and is now 100 %  feeling home ! Meanwhile she has inspected all corners of the house, and poor Nicole is not the master of her home anymore, it's Isis.

Isis with her charming cross eyed look let all hearts melt

she plays and runs around, and doesn't go out. Which is very good because Nicole needed an inside cat. Nevertheless she sits on the terrace wall and looks down one floor and we always fear she would jump, but she stays there and observes what's flying around.

She is such a sweetie !
