Blackie brought in a dead blackbird and was closely followed by Tom. They've moved it from the kitchen to the hall.

Tom's gone into the lounge; Blackie's gone back outside, last seen scampering round the fruit trees.

Blackie has returned and is amusing herself with the bird.

Recovering from a minor opp at the vets. I will collect her later.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Lab Major has had his stitches out and the wound has been pronounced impeccable by the vet. Unfortunately, vet adds, tumours on the spleen are almost always malignant and the spleen's function means that the probability of metastases is significant, probably in his lungs.  If we're lucky he might have a year.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Eating a carrot and ignoring her bone that I picked up especially for her birthday. This is the third bone she is ignoring, so I'm not getting her anymore. The first one I was sure was because I wasn't home for 2 nights.

Too many vegans in your house... ;)
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

MrsT tells me that the dogs hung back in the kitchen when she walked out into the hall this morning, whereupon the parrot shouted "fucking hell, come on!" in my voice. Wonderful how they invent stuff, isn't it?  ::-)

David closed the lounge door last night, with the result that Tom spent the night on his printer.
Tom came down for breakfast then spent about 7 hours on my bar chair without dismounting, sleeping, grooming, watching for Stray Tom and singing.

Q: What do you call a cat that rests on a printer?
A: A copy-cat...

Tom's back on the printer, having spent the night there, before coming to the kitchen for FOOD.

Feral Tom appeared at the cat flap and Big Tom faced him off and sang. It's the first time I've seen Feral Tom by day. They have similar tabby clouration but Feral is skinny and short-haired, while BT is fat and long-haired. Feral looks almost like a wildcat.

Unless it's a multi-function printer, in which case what you have is a cat-scan[1].


[1] Internet old farts will recall a brief trend for activating flatbed scanners while the cat was sitting on them and sharing the results (which often featured a bemused looking cat with more than the usual number of feet).
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Blackie is eating cat food.
Blackie has been up on the canopy over our patio, which she followed by climbing onto next doors scaffolding and stalking the pigeons nesting in an alcove in front of our house.
avid reports another black & white cat atop the summer house.

There will be bird carnage...
...and probably kittens.

Blackie is AWOL.
Tom is guzzling, having left a scratch on David's piano, which has Displeased him.
I observed a detached murine head in the lounge earlier.
David is practising the second movement of the Moonlight Sonata.

Tom is sleeping peacefully in the bed he's made out of David's bags and the bag of paper awaiting recycling.

He looks very comfortable!
