Quick update

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.

Lots of love
Vicki & Batu xx

Sunday Words of Wisdom

Today's quote is:

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
―    Robert A. Heinlein

Robert is an American novelist and Science Fiction writer - you can learn more about him here:

Robert A. Heinlein Biography

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.

Have a great Sunday all!

My holiday resort

Whenever Vicki and Paul go on holidays somewhere they leave me at my holiday resort - Megalong Valley Cattery.....
Can you see me in the Playroom in the photo above?

Last time Vicki & Paul went away, Vicki dropped me off, I inspected my room and then ran away straight into the Playroom and got into the green hammock - you can see it in the photos above and below.  I love sitting in that hammock all day.

And then when Vicki came to collect me...I had just finished my breakfast and was walking leisurely out to the Playroom to go and sit in the hammock for the morning when I spotted Vicki walking towards me...I took off.  Vicki was interferring with my morning routine!  But she came out to the Playroom and tracked me down and put me in that awful container to bring me home.  I have to say I was grateful once I got home.

Look what happened to me....

Can you guess what happened to me?  Yes, Vicki & Paul are such bad carers that my knots were completely out of control and they got the vet to do this to me!
I am only just talking to them again. 
Dont tell them, but in this hot weather, I am actually loving having no fur, I have started cleaning myself again and I keep admiring my lovely long legs and muscles that have emerged from underneath all the fur!!! :-)
