From all cats I know, Arthur is the only one who loves little children. My neighbor's granddaughter came to see the cats, with the result that they all ran away except Arthur who was delighted. He followed her everywhere, allowed her to pet him and was the most patient cat in the world !

Sometimes there are loud and for us human's ears very dangerous screams, growling and hissing which can be heard in the whole neighborhood.

This time it was the usually so peaceful Pookie who defended her territory against the neighbor's cat ! It sounded as if they were killing each other. But by the time we both ran to window and door and clapped in our hands shouting to stop it, they had already separated.

I ran out of Pookie pictures and wanted to make a photo session with her. It didn't work. Each time I approached the camera she sniffed at it or rubbed her head against the chair legs or mine, so I decided to wait and do it another day. Pookie loves to be photographed and purrs but unfortunately she also moves !

Despite the warm and sunny weather, Rosie preferred to stay in her basket against the heating which was not heating  and watch over her mousies !

while Kim choose the warm bark and played part of the decoration.

Pookie was the first one to discover my suitcase checked it and then she did what all cats do when they don't know how to react, they groom themselves, in not very elegant poses.

I told them that I will be away for 10 days, my friend and neighbor Dominique are going to her property in France at the Geneva lake to spend some holidays there together with another friend. We will go by car in two steps as there are 800 km to drive and we don't want to arrive half dead.

Mr. G. as usual will spoil the cats and they will all have holidays from the female human who pays attention to what they eat ! It will be the "fiesta" for all of them.

And while you are reading this, I will be on my way to :

Lovely little tales about your cats. I love to look at Pookie she's so cute. And Arthur is so white. How do you keep him clean?

Resting in bed is good. Going outside is fun, too.
