Hey, pay attention ! Now you held the tablet upside down !

Phew, I should smile a little more when I have to take selfies !

Look at my claws !

She insisted to be on the selfie with me ! and now we are both blur !



Life goes on every day the same, as long as the winter or at least the weather hasn't changed.

Kim the now inside cat, waits mostly for Mr. G. and sleeps on his place sometimes together with Pookie. I have no idea when she eats and if she eats but she must eat, because she is not skinny and her fur is shining. But I have never seen her with the others eating together !

Pookie gives her morning concerts and sometimes it is so unbearable, that I close the door to the kitchen and living room, while I am in my room, so I can't hear her. She is a very cleaver girl because this morning when she had eaten already 3 or 4 times and was still singing, I wanted to close the door, but she ran outside into Mr. G's office, and I didn't hear her anymore. Apparently she has understood that too much is too much !

Miss Rosie thinks that my bed belongs to her, she doesn't care if I am in or out, but she doesn't tolerate anybody else.

When she saw Arthur curled up there, she wasn't happy and tried to chase him away, but Arthur when he sleeps he sleeps and not even a bulldozer can push him away. So she gave up and she also curled down on the other end of the bed. And I could admire two little snails.

This is Pookie's bed, in Mr. G's room, where she sleeps during the night. That is a cat agreement. But little bitch Rosie, has to show that the whole house belongs to her, so she waits until Pookie has left her bed to climb inside and pretend to sleep. When I want to open the window, she looks at me and runs away ! Probably her bad conscience ! Cats behaviour is real funny to observe !



Miaaaah I just got a fly in my eye !

I swear I didn't take any drugs !

No, I don't want to hang myself, but she forgot the string of her camera !

grumble ! Leave me alone, I am grumpy today !



Apparently the cold is gone and it's getting warmer. Except Kim and Pookie, Arthur and Rosie are happy to go outside and inspect the neighborhood.

Kim the whole day long with a few interruptions lays on the sofa and waits for Mr. G. It's nearly unbelievable but it's true. She jumps up, turns around settles down and waits. As soon as she sees him she starts to meow until he has also settled down and then she would curl up on his lap. Unbelievable too, is that she wants now to be brushed !! Only with me she hasn't changed a lot, I am just allowed to pet or rather touch her head !

Arthur makes his rounds around the house

and peeps through the curtains into the kitchen.

Or he sits inside and checks the outside !

One day during the week I saw him laying in the sun on our neighbor's patio. Suddenly he got up, looked through the window door and then I saw the door was opened and Arthur disappeared inside. No wonder that he has less appetite now, when he visits the neighbors !!

and the best place to digest and rest is my bed !

Rosie had just her dinner and shows her little tongue

Pookie has some difficulties to jump on the sofa with her arthritis, but after two or three trials she manages it. I don't help her, I think she has to exercise a bit to keep fit !

A not very exciting week, but they all seem to be happy.



It's selfie time !

OK, here is mine, I just retained a yawn !

??? I look all black, at least you can see my eyes !

This time I wanted to show you my profile !

and I that I am a handsome boy ! and change my name to "Modesty"!!



Another week went by almost similar to the others ! My house is transformed into a dormitory.

I notice more and more how Kim our autistic cat, who didn't like humans but loved all animals from birds over mice to dogs, now loves humans. Especially males !! She is completely in love with Mr. G ! As soon as he comes home she follows him everywhere and when he intends to sit down on the sofa she meows until he sits and she can jump on his lap. It's as if she wants to say "Hurry up" !

Even the brush doesn't scare her anymore and she is happy when he brushes her ! Slowly he is even allowed to touch her belly.

She doesn't mind to share with Arthur !

and a real miracle, she sits even besides me while I google through the world and I too am allowed to pet her now. She still has a suspicious look, but at least she doesn't run away anymore. What a difference to the half wild cat who was always outside and only came in during the night for food. Very seldom she slept inside. And now it is just the opposite ! Cats are unpredictable !

Rosie leads her princess life, she runs behind the others to slap them on the back, or she tries to catch their tales. This behaviour is not very well appreciated and the princess gets a lot of hisses in return.

She  has discovered the comb and loves to be combed. Even when she is at the other end of the room, if I show the comb she would run and jump on my lap. 

Don Arthur gets fat and fatter that's the winter reserve !

He could sit a bit outside in a sun puddle on the window sill, but not for long, the sun doesn't like us for the moment.

Pookie seems to be a happy cat, despite the fact that it is more and more difficult to jump on the sofa. But with a little effort she manages it. She eats her "soup", the with water diluted cat food, and has put on weight. She had become so skinny. Her fur is shining and she even plays with little toy mousies. If she can make it like this until 20 at least, then there are still two years left !



I am soo sleepy and you woke me up ! now my eyes look as if I was stoned !

Now I am in the right position for a perfect selfie !

OK, I made the selfie, now can I eat ?

I still don't understand very well for what this tablet is used for !



We all wait for better times, I mean better weather,  my cat family is longing for some sunshine to go out and inspect the neighbourhood.

Rosie between grooming and  playing model for me, bothers the others. As she is bored she "attacks" Arthur, in fact to play with him, but Arthur is too lazy for that, and Kim and Pookie hiss at her and run away. Poor Rosie !

So she sits or mostly sleeps

Arthur who hates to be an inside cat sits behind all windows and looks out. No birds to watch, it's a catastrophe

and on the other side towards the street, there is not one human with dog to see, as it is mostly raining.

But Arthur is a philosopher, and dreams of teasing dogs, sitting on the wall, or help the neighbors digging in their garden.

And that's the view I have when I wake up in the morning

Pookie mostly sleeps too, but still meows the whole morning for food. Since I add water to the can food so does it looks like a soup, she has put on weight. I know that she has kidney troubles, but as long as she is happy and not suffering I won't bother her with vet visits. She eats little portions, leaves the food, I add a bit of water and then she eats again. Always giving a concert before. The good thing is that in the afternoons she doesn't meow and during the night neither. She still plays with her 18 nearly 19 years, and seems to be an old happy cat.

A little noise in the kitchen .... ??

And she still takes care of herself which is very important.
