Arthur the only male cat in our cat family likes Christmas time very much. There are so many things showing up suddenly that he almost forgot to make his dayly check up visits to our neighbors.
He actively helped me to pull out especial tiny Christmas decorations, like little Father Christmas, angels and red little baubles. Then he sat there looking at all this with a disdained glance turned a little Father Christmas around and touched him with his paw as this strange mouse didn't move. He sniffed at the white cotton beard, sneezed turned around and walked proudly (tail up) away, this would be work for later.
Yesterday the door bell rang. I opened the door and saw a man in a blue uniform, he was from the Electricity company and wanted to see our counter. And who was sitting besides him ? Arthur of course. I let the man in still escorted by Arthur and all three of us went to the basement for the counter.
The man looked anxiously at this white cat and asked me if he scratched. I took my most offended face and told him of course not ! Arthur savoured the situation and prowled around the poor man's legs. The man while looking at the counter and quickly wrote down the numbers he saw, step danced around to get rid of this attaching cat. Then he quickly said good bye and escaped in a hurry .... still followed by Arthur. When I looked again, I saw him going from door to door and who was following him with eagerness , still tail up ? Arthur of course.
When Arthur is not busy to get on the nerves of all people in the street, he looks for new occupations in the house.
I have to say that Arthur is a very curious and active cat when he is not sleeping !
Here after 5 years (already) he discovered that we have a sink in the kitchen. Now, every day I have to let the water run, because Mr. Arthur doesn't drink anymore out of his bowl ! It's much more interesting to play first and drink after !
Unfortunately I am afraid that our water bill will consequently be a little higher this year ! Unless I only take a shower once a week !
After one or two hours of activity depending on the weather, he then decides to nap. When the weather is bad then he would first try to play with Pookie (Kim doesn't know what playing is and looks at him with astonished eyes, and Lisa the old Lady just chases him away. For these games she decided, she is really too old. She only deigns to play with us. Pookie like an annoyed mother would play a little but just to keep peace and then chases him away too.
It would be helpful for me if you leave your email here in the notify list.
