I only agreed to this selfie because I wanted to show you my darling, which is her camera case !

No !!! This is not a spaghetti, it's my whisker !

See ! I told you my claws have to be cut !

I haven't said my last word yet !

Sometimes I have the impression to live in a retirement home ! Especially now in winter.

Arthur the "man" of the house is hanging around in the kitchen to check what is for lunch and supper on the menu plan. Or just observes what I am doing.

He also waits for me when I am away for shopping to check out that I have brought some eatable items with me.

And in the evenings he lays around with my camera case (when it's available) or has his nose stuck in the radiator.

Pookie I can really compare to an old "eat and sleep" resident of a retirement home. She waits for breakfast, then she checks in the kitchen and meows for a second, third and fourth breakfast. Then she lays down in Mr. G.'s office and as she can't hear anymore waits for any vibrations direction kitchen. Then she would sit there and meow for several lunches and the whole thing is repeating in the evening for supper.

Kim spends her days on various sleeping places, here she lays on my place but as soon as I show up she runs away.

Rosie the youngest is not better since there are no birds and mousies around due to the rain, and she hates when her fur coat is wet, also sleeps in various places. This morning she did what she had never done, she woke me up by biting in my toe !! Now I am offended for the whole day !



I should have put the tablet more to the left to get a nice picture of my beautiful eyes !

Sorry I just woke up

Me too, bad timing

Do I feel some vibrations .... food is arriving ?

(Pookie is deaf)

My involuntary inside cats because forced due to the bad weather, occupy themselves as good as they can.

Sir Arthur decided to disturb help me folding the laundry by sitting especially on the items I wanted to fold. I took my revenge and decorated him with a handkerchief and with a sock.

Therefore he moved on the opposite site and watched me from far ! Arthur doesn't like to be dressed.

Miss Rosie likes to supervise my computer work and sits behind it watching what I am doing.

When she is not busy to chase her siblings in all directions probably trying to play, she would then sit on the top of the sofa and play the offended diva.

Arthur didn't move, he slept so deeply that Rosie didn't manage to chase him from the bed.

Nearly 18 years old Pookie shows that she has lost nothing of her agility, despite her arthritis and now being completely deaf. A part from that she still plays even with an USB stick.

Kim has changed, she is a little less shy with me and I was even allowed to take pictures while she did her grooming. She too is getting old and will be 17 at Christmas this year ! But apparently she has nothing at all and still hears very well !



You can tell your readers that I am not in Selfie mood today !

and I am in a hurry, I want to eat !

Sorry, I just woke up !

I pushed the button by pure coincidence ! I absolutely have to cut this white whisker !

As there is still very limited outside excursions due to the rain, Arthur has found another occupation, he has become our doorman. As soon as somebody rings the bell, wherever he is he runs to the door, sits on the carpet and waits until I open the door. Then he would check who it is, and then he does his selection, or he turns his back and walks away tail up, or he hurries towards the person to stroke around his/her legs, which makes coming in a little difficult, fortunately we have a good insurance.

When there is nothing to do he admires the radiator

and as soon he is gone, Pookie takes the place for a little nap.

Now during the winter I work with my computer in the living room. It's warmer there. Rosie loves to sit on the table and watch what I am doing. The only inconvenience is, that I don't see anymore what is happening in our street !

Still bed pals ! Kim and Arthur.

There are sometimes discussions between Arthur and Rosie, who gets the best place on my lap ! I think I should put some weight on to at least XXXXL so that they would both have enough room.

Honestly I prefer Rosie because she is light. Arthur is heavier and after an hour I get the impression that an elephant is sleeping on my nap. So I amuse myself and change him into a girl with my camera case.



Aw, that's nice, purr, purr, I caught this moment in my selfie !

See ! Now you have the proof that I don't need to go to the vet dentist !

OK, I moved a bit, but look I have a white whisker ! Now I am depressed.

This time I posed really nicely !

Instead of being the "House of the raising sun" we are the "House of the bored to death" ! It rains and storms already the whole week and not even Arthur puts a paw outside.

Instead all beds, sofas and other napping places are occupied with bored or sleeping cats.

Arthur was angry because I wanted to make my bed and he had to move

The only interesting event during the days are checking out if there is something interesting on our plates.

When she is not meowing for food, I find Pookie in this position.

As she is completely deaf now, she can even nap on a phone without jumping into the air.

Rosie looks like a sleeping cat angel but the appearance is wrong ! She chases her siblings around when she is awake.

They all think if only it would stop raining and we could go outside !
