This week was a real black week for us. The worker who had started to repair the joints between the tiles of our terrace let us down and the terrace full of cement dust. With the result that 16 grey paw prints were found througout the whole house multiplied by how many times the 4 went in and out. A nightmare. Fortunately the weather was dry and sunny !

On top of that a pickpocket had stolen my camera on Sunday while I was looking through a bunch of bathing suits ! I don't know how he managed that because my purse has several pockets with zips. Unfortunately there were also cat photos in my camera fortunately only a few.

Arthur is mostly outside now because of the sunny weather and he strolls through all available gardens.

When he has enough he brings four paw prints into the house. Now it's better because Mr. G. has cleaned the terrace with the Karcher.

He has also learned how to open the drawer under the sofa. Then he climbs into it for a little nap and we wonder where he is and why the drawer is open. He is really strong because it's not so easy to open this heavy drawer.

Rosie too loves to be outside now but more during the night when there is nobody around.

and then they are using the cat tree to observe or rest. They were disturbed by the ongoing work on the terrace, cutting the old joints out between the tiles was very noisy.

Pookie good or bad weather leads her usual life, running around through the whole house like crazy in the morning then she has a short look outside before collapsing on Mr. G's bed or in his office to spend there the day.

Kim is again the invisible cat, but she sleeps in my neighbor's garden although she has her little 3 year old grandson on visit who plays in the garden but apparently that doesn't disturb her !

The humans may have their troubles, but you kitties have it made!

What a ratbag to steal your camera! Bad karma will surely visit that thief and ensure all the photos he takes are rubbish.

As usual Arthur cracks me up - love that shot of him killing the rug - and how clever of him to be able to open a draw. Cats never fail to amaze me. It's too hot here for ours - I think they've all got heat exhaustion!

As usual your cats are leading busy and interesting lives. You are lucky they allow you to live in your house and sleep with them in your own bed.

Felix loves to play with the carpet just like Arthur. Maybe it has something the white cats have in common? :)

I have a beauty like Arthur; pure white and very pretty. Her name is Lily. I love Pookie's markings. Very unique.

It seems life is very interesting at your place, but not always nice! I am sorry about your camera. I hope you get insurance!!

Arthur seems to have it all sussed though. How clever he is!!

Such a bummer about the camera.
People can be downright mean.
A kitty would NEVER steal a camera.

We are very sorry to hear about your camera being stolen, Gattina! That is terrible. Hopefully now that the work is over, your cats (and you, too) will be able to get back to their normal routines. :)

I´m sorry to read about the stolen camera.
Also I hope all work on the terrace is finally done and you can relax from the work the next days.

How fun that Arthur find out how to open the drawer do hide there :)

What a bugger to steal your camera! Hope it shows him and his friends with devil ears in every picture always.

Arthur is a clever boy - and a real toughie. Love Pookie's practicality too!
