Being annoying.  She sits by the back door with a "Want out" expression on her furry arse until a semi-crippled Mr Larrington has hauled his achey-breaky back off the sofa, then runs away.  I have persuaded her out with harsh language and threats of a violent nature.

My son's beagle has had a couple of soft toys supplied to hims this Christmas just gone. The first lasted about 90 seconds before disembowelment, the other, given to him by my grandchildren, is still going strong and is generally the source of background music when I telephone them.

Baggins is asleep on the bed (default position)
Alfie is behind me on my office chair, trying to push me off.  He's slowly succeeding, as every tiny millimetre wiggle about by me, is instantly taken up by a hairy muscular mog.  As I'm going downstairs for coffee in a min, as a break from editing abut 600 photos in Capture One Pro from last night, I suspect the chair will be unavailable when I get back.

Last night she was Skyping with our friends' Tilley lookalike pup. They're in Portland Oregon.

Our Tilly has just muscled in on a Skype between Pcolbeck juniors girlfriend and her parents in Hong Kong.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Bad Cat was disemboweling the subwoofer again. Little furry fucker. I wouldn't mind but she just looks at me with a 'what, is this supposed to be wrong or something?' expression and carries on scratching.

Having a rest after we have been for a walk in the snow. Its the first proper snow she has experienced and it was very exciting. She has tried to eat it all.

Sleeping. Morphy went out in the snow this morning. All old hat for him. At least it wasn't that powdery stuff that makes little snow testicles in the feathery fur behind his paws. He doesn't like that.

Pete is lying in his bed with his hands curled in towards each other, looking at me and slow blinking.

Sulking because I got cross with her for doning a poo on under the dining table instead of in her litter tray >:(

Bit late now but Friday evening my sisters cats suddenly became very friendly.





I had opened a tin of tuna to go with the jacket spud while I baby sat. Even after all the tuna was gone my lap was a prime sleeping spot which the normally less cuddly Harry wanted.

Pete was sulking because I told him off for opening the cupboard where I keep his food (straight after he ate his tea!) but then he forgot he was sulking and now he's having a wash.

As they'd worn out the scratching posts on their old cat tree, I built them a brand new cat tree (not from scratch, via Zooplus and some Ikea-style instructions). Elevated luxury and more platform space than an average London flat has floor space. It's plush. I'd sleep on the beds if I could fit. There's even a kitty hammock. I'd kill for a hammock!

So what they both been doing all day? Taking turns to sit on the top platform of the old tree to look at the new one with a look that borders on contempt, that's what.

Being in disgrace.1

Came downstairs this morning to find a large spherical furry object on the kitchen floor.
Closer inspection revealed that it wasn't perfectly spherical, there were a number of small protuberances.  One of these had a small dog's face on it that was cast down and with eyes pleading "Please don't shout at me.  I'm a dog.  I can't help it"

The dog food cupboard door had been opened.  Three empty packets of chews were ripped apart and strewn across the floor.  A large bag of kibble was ripped open and its contents mostly missing.
This is going to cost a fortune in poo bags.

1 Actually, I suppose it was our fault, so it's us that should be in disgrace.

See, when a cat manages to burgle the food cupboard[1] they have the decency to look smug about it.


[1] My parents' two once staged an elaborate heist, which was an unprecedented example of teamwork: The one who knew how to *pull* doors breached the drawer[2], then stood watch while the one with box-gnawing skills (and a sufficiency of teeth) took over to liberate the food.  (Which was stolen and therefore tasted much better than the identical food in their bowl.)
[2] A large half-cupboard-deep drawer, so that must have taken some effort.

Well, nothing much at the moment, but yesterday, Spike, my older male cockatiel, was busy mating with Charlie, the younger female cockatiel   :-[ I didn't know where to look!!   ;)
