CATS ON TUESDAY
After two weeks of painters in the house my little cat family had another shock ! A baby in the house ! Little grandson Toby spent us a visit over the weekend.
Arthur, cool as ever, didn't bother about the baby, didn't even throw a glance on him, he was more disturbed by the baby's mother who chased him away probably because he could put some cat hair on little Toby. I was rather surprised because I knew her as a cat lover. Mr. G. wasn't pleased about this at all, but didn't say anything for Pete's sake but inside he was like a volcano, that somebody terrorized his beloved Arthur.
It bothered me far more that Arthur jumps on the table when we have guests, which really he shouldn't do, and then I chase him away too, but how can the poor cat know if when we are alone he is allowed to eat from Mr. G's plate and when there are people he is not ! With me he would never dare to do this. So while we were eating I locked him out, but Mr. G wasn't happy about this at all and his meal was somewhat spoiled !
Little a Toby a very good baby only cried when he was hungry but that, apparently didn't bother the cats at all. Anyway, Pookie didn't show up at all anymore once she had put her nose in the living room and had run away. She is a very sensitive cat and "smells" when cats are unwanted. Kim only came in during the night for food and fortunately Rosie slept on the sofa behind my head as usual and wasn't bothered even when I had little Toby in my arms.
Now I mean hygenic is very important for a baby, but too much isn't good either. Then they get sick for a yes and a no. How do farmer kids survive amongst, cats, chicken, cows, pigs etc ?? And our son had always lived with a cat since he was born and it all went very well. What I mean is that one should try to combine nicely the living together of babies and animals. So many cats and dogs loose their so said "forever home" because a baby arrives. To me that means that they never had been real pet lovers but only took a pet as a substitute for a baby.
In any case I don't like visitors who chase our cats away, unless they are personally bothered by them. It's their house and it's to us to decide what they are allowed to do and what not, and honnestly all our friends love our cats. Even poor Dominique who starts to sneeze because she is allergic !
Now everything is back to normal and Arthur helps with the computer work, he has also dialled a number on Mr. G's mobile phone I don't know who it was it was n° 666666666 (anywone concerned ?)
Pookie too likes this place and rests from all these stressing days
The weather is bad and they watch the rain out of the window.
Rosie finally has found all her mousies again, and as you can see relaxes happily in her basket.
