LMC came in the bedroom at 4am to give the bed and anyone in it (i.e. me) a good kneading. Which must have taken about 30 minutes. To accompaniment of pneumatic drill purring. I studiously ignored her.

So she decided to up the ante by biting my hand.

Now she's asleep in my office and snoring louder than the radio.

Can't you get your own back and give her a good kneading now that she is asleep?  Probably best if you don't bite her paw.

It's tempting. It was a full-on four paw knead too. Then she gets so excited she crouches there, twitching. Cats are very odd creatures.

She doesn't have any teeth, I suppose it's better to be bitten by her than Bad Cat, but she still has some impressive jaw muscles.

Bad Cat bites me all the time, of course, because she's bad. Her favourite trick is to wait on the kitchen counter for humans to wander by and then grab a limb with her paws so she can start chewing away. Oh and be sure to wash well after swimming, the slightest whiff of chlorine sends her into a bitey frenzy.

Sorry, but that is a bit funny to me.

Got 4 days with my two.  I love them soooo much, and they really have me well trained.

The local detonations have commenced.
Blackie got really scared last year, when she was only about three months old, and ended up cowering in a cupboard but I know not where she is right now.
Big Tom has woken and seems to be roaming round the house.

Our pet is being a bit of a cretin. To be fair- he just had a second cruciate op 7 days ago so he is in a bit of pain etc.
Today I allowed him not to wear his cone of shame for 2 mins while he was out in the garden with me hanging out some washing. 10 seconds ,later I saw him chewing out one of skin stitches. "Oi Google" I yelled. One of my neighbours replied 'flipping eck, he's in trouble'. Yes. Yes he was.

It must be fairly shit to be called Alexa now.  Especially if you're a teenager.

Amazon could supply a rename function, though they might not like some of the things it gets called.  They could fit it with a Grundy filter, I suppose...

You can rename Alexa (though not, for some reason, if you have non-Amazon device as I do).

As my wife asked 'why can't it do a man's voice?' Because you wouldn't then believe anything it told you, said I. She at least took a moment to agree.

Just finishing gestating apparently. I have been worn down by my wife and son into finally getting a dog. Which we will get, despite all those 80s ads to the contrary, just before christmas.

The 8 puppies have finished gestating- we will be visiting them in a few weeks to choose whom will come home with us in December.

Hopefully enjoying effects of the flea tablets I pushed into their wet food.

I think they swallowed them.

Managed to feed them separately. They usually feed together. Didn't want to overdose Blackie but wanted to get stuff into both cats.

Big Tom has taken to sleeping in our bedroom...

Outgassing. If we lived in the UK they'd be eligible for the Queen's Award for Enterprise.

Skulking under my bed, freaked out by fireworks.
Never tell me the odds.

Both cats are resting in the house.
Fireworks are fairly quiet tonight and the cats do  not seem bothered in any way.

Sigh. Cats went out tonight and then a load of fireworks went off. Ninkasi is nowhere to be found....
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

There are certainly more fireworks here today than yesterday.
Cats are sleeping, Big Tom on pedal board, Blackie on half-landing.

Lurcher Annie is lying on the sofa with me, fast asleep or listening to Afro Celt Sound Sustem with her eyes closed - I can’t really tell. Looking for all the world like a gentle and innocent creature. However, we don’t have any small furries...

Detonations almost non-stop/confluent here tonight.
Blackie is asleep on the half-landing.
I don't know Big Tom's location but he spent from midday till 6 in the wardrobe, had a feed and wandered off.

Sulking because she didn't get any cheese when I was having cheese for dinner. She tried every vocalisation form woof to growl and whimper and every variation on looking sad and hungry. I don't like begging dogs and she doesn't beg except when I have cheese, she just can't help herself.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Playing the organ!

Big Tom likes resting on the organ's pedal board.

David left the organ switched on...
