Sunday Wisdom from the Daredevil Book for Cats

Okay - this is going to be the last week on Sunday wisdom from Prince Cuddles. I have given you enough teasers from the book - you will just have to get your humans to go out and buy it for you.

This week, I wanted to leave Prince Cuddles on a high and we will be looking at Famous Cat Lovers in history.

Many famous composers exploited cats remorselessly in their search for a tune you could hum.
Frederick Chopin took notes as his cat danced across the keyboard of his piano. It was the first run through of the "Cat Waltz".
Scarlatti's kitty, Pulcinella, did a turn around the harpsichord to produce the Fugue in G Minor, L499, aka the "Cat's Fugue".
But did either animal get royalties from these projects? Not on your nelly. Neither moggy saw a single red cent.

I have really enjoyed these Sunday sessions with Prince Cuddles and the Daredevil Book for Cats. I hope you have too!

Special Award from Leonka

I got a great and special mention on Leonka's blog and he passed on this award to me:

Leonka's blog

I especially love that I am called Super Batu on this blog.

As part of accepting this award I have to share seven secrets about me....hmmmmm....lets see.....

1. I am an abandoned orphan. Vicki and Paul rescued me from the RSPCA.

2. I absolutely go mental for Friskies - if anyone even approaches the laundry, I suddenly appear and insist on having Friskies poured for me - I even show people where they are kept!

3. At night, my favourite spot to sleep is horizontally between Vicki and Paul.

4. I love hiding in bushes to watch the fun going on around me.

5. I used to keep a lonely neighbour company while he was sick. He died 2 years ago and I still miss him. I did this while Vicki and Paul were at work so they never knew the good deed I was doing.

6. I am a fantastic rat/mouse catcher. I am commended by the neighbours with chickens, horses etc that they don't have to leave many traps outs - I do the job for them!

7. I am a sucker for a good chin scratch - do that and I am anyones!

Sunday Wisdom from the Daredevil Book for Cats

What to do if you climb a tree by mistake....

According to Prince Cuddles you must:

1. Mewl as if your life depends on it (since it does)

2. Once you have attracted the dear old lady with a bag's attention - avoid youths in hoods, who will only throw stones and find your predicament briefly hilarious, before slouching off to the nearest shopping centre - keep mewling!

3. She will call up at you, somehow imagining that you understand human. "Are you stuck?", "Come on kitty, you can climb down" - that type of nonsense. Ignore her and hope she locates someone more useful to ask for their help.

4. When the more useful person arrives, they will both stare up at you, probably pointing. Others may gather with them. It's alright, they know you're there now. You can safely revert to ignoring them as if they are dirt.

5. You may hear sirens - a good sign - or a fire engine might just turn up unannounced. This is the Fire Service. They have ladders, which is just the job.

6. A fireman will climb a very high ladder, risking life and limb to reach you. Try to scratch his eyes out when he gets there (It's only fair).

7. After you have diegned to be rescued, the fireman will descend the ladder. Once safely on the ground, struggle out of his arms and waltz off as if you've been unnecessarily inconvenienced.

8. Climb the tree again.

Hey thanks for that Prince Cuddles. Good advice for a bit of fun once again.

But in Australia, the standard operating procedure for the fire brigade in getting kitties down from trees is to turn the hose on them - can you imagine????? How horrifying.

It's hot....

Who said Cats didn't like sitting in front of fans?
It has been so hot recently and I love the feel of the fan on my fur......
