I have a basket by the front door that I love sitting in and watching the world go by. I can see everyone arrive at the front door, leave parcels, leave the house and just generally wander around the yard - all from the comfort of a basket.
The lining had become worn out, so I was delighted when Vicki recovered it all for me and look at the lovely fabric - purple and black cats...looks a bit halloween-like!
I have to apologise that Batu has been very busy and not been blogging. As you know he is quite an old cat - we think about 16-17 now as he was pre-loved when we got him in 1999.
Batu spends his days sleeping and being much closer to the house - on the back deck, in his snuggle spot in the laundry - and we have "stepping stones" for him to get up onto tables, baskets etc strategically scattered around to make it easy for him to get onto, into and out of objects that he likes to sleep on.
He lets us brush him now so there are no matts in his lovely newly grown fur. We are just struggling through a cold winter so he is eating lots of soups and special roast chicken.
I will periodically give updates on Batu as he moves into his geriatric years and is less adventurous!
I also want to thank you for all the friendship and love you have given me and Batu while I have been cat-blogging. You are a very special community.
The next door neighbour has a new dog - a little Jack Russell called Jill. I am much bigger than Jill. but that doesn't stop her from coming into my yard and stealing my food from the laundry. She is very naughty and I always dob her in if she is still in the yard when Paul & Vicki get home from work.
So that must be what this quote is referring to. I just have to get used to Jill doing what she pleases - even if it is in my yard! At least she knows I am the boss of my yard and steers clear of me.
