Card Cats

Last week it was my Mum's birthday, and yes, she is very old now!  Her Mum sent her this card.

I don't know if she thought it looked a bit like me, as it does look a bit ginger.  I think it's cos it's a cute cat that she thought of me, not cos it's a fat cat like me.

Now, where can I get some fishes like these ones.

2.  Cuddling up in bed at night with my Mum.

3.  Guarding the garden from Introoders

4.  Yoghurt - yes, I know, but I like it, OK?

5.  My pile of catnip mousies.

Saturday Snoopervising in the Garden

At the weekends, it's important to spend some snoopervising things out in the garden, and I've got just the spot for that.


From here, I can keep an eye on everything.  See the fence.  That's keeping the vegetables safe from the other neighbourhood kitties.  Of course, I don't go in there!!!


A cat's got to keep an eye on these things.

Friday in the Garden

Friday is a good day to spend some time in the garden.  Here I am taking it easy.


The grass is looking nice and green now, you can tell I've been looking after it.  Dad says you've got to let it grow a bit before you cut is again.

Totally unrelated, Mum & Dad went to where they are going to keep the boat thing.  She didn't take many photos, but this is one of the boats they saw.


It's a bit of a funny looking thing, too much on the top apparently. I'm a bit worried about the boat thing.

Still Sleeping

Yup, I'm still asleep!


Actually, I'm not really asleep.  I'm just pretending.

Sometimes all a cat wants to do is sleep.


This is one of my favourite spots, right by the door.  I like sleeping by the door, so I can make a quick getaway if I need to.

Close UP

I don't normally let Mum get this close, and she's cheated by using the zoom.


A cat can't get no peace!

Snoopervising in the Garden

When a cat's got a garden, it's a full time job keeping an eye on things and checking everything is OK.  Here I am, making sure everything is as it should be.

Not Feeling Photogenic!

I wasn't feeling very co-operative today.  To much of having that flashy box thing pointed at me.


One minute I'm lying on the mat minding my own business.  Then the flashy box thing comes out, and I'm off.


A cat just can't get any peace.


I did stick my tongue out at Mum, but she doesn't take any notice.

Sparta - The Mean Kitty

Sparta is one cute cat.  Not too sure about his owner though.

He's even got his own YouTube Channel - The Mean Kitty.

In the Sun

Nothing much else to do today, apart from hide from the hoover.  So time to head for the garden, for some serious stretching and rolling.


First one way


Then the other.


There's nothing like sunbeams on your tummy!

Many of you have kindly left comments on how nice and fluffy my tummy is.  So, for all you tummy fans out there, here is some more ginger tummyness.


The best way to show off your tummy is with a good stretch...

Trying to Steal my Bed

Now, I know that I sleep in their bed, but it doesn't mean they can sleep in mine.  Dad decided to make a takeover bid for my cushion.  I wasn't very happy about it!


He'd be too big for it anyway!

Inside or Out

Some days, it's difficult to decide whether to stay in or go out.


So I'll just sit here for a bit, chew my mousie and think about it for a while.

Testing Again with Blog Software

Mum's been having some trouble with her photo uploading, so she's been testing it out with a rather splendid photo of me.


If this works, I think she's cracked it!

We're Back Blogging!!

OK, So Mum think's she's got it all sorted out now. The computer's up and running fine, but she's gone from a PC to a Mac, which is apparently a bit complicated. I was just a little concerned, as she's just deleted a load of pictures of me!! How can that be? She says they are duplicates, but I'm not so sure.

Anyway, it's all been a bit traumatic. She's been using Windows Live Writer, but that doesn't work on a Mac, so it's taken a while to find an alternative. Then there's been more photo sorting to deal with. One thing after another.

Anyway, while she sorts all that out, I'm off for a snooze on the sofa with my Dad.

Test Post from New Computer

So, Mum got her new computer, and spent all day trying to set it up.  I snoopervised from a safe distance.  This is a test post, to see if she's done it right!

Shoe Guarding

I was guarding the shoes, honest, but it was so nice and warm, I thought I’d just close my eyes and turn up my paws for a few minutes.

I’m a Big Fat Tweeting Cat!

So, it seems that now I’ve got a Twitter Feed.  Mum says it’s so I can Tweet.  I’m not sure what she means.  I’m a cat, so I purr, and meow.  I know I definitely don’t tweet.  But hey, apparently tweeting is a big thing nowadays and you can follow me, and tweet back, if you want to.  She’ll be putting me on Facebook next.

Unfortunately, I had to have the user name BigFatBoatCat, cos anything related to my blog title had already gone.  I quite like it though.

It seems I’ve also got an iPhone, so I can tweet on the move.

3 in a Bed

Now in our house, we all sleep together in the big bed. Well, I sleep on the sofa, and on my cushion as well, and Dad does his fair share of sofa-napping also.  But at bedtimes, we have a routine.  Mum usually goes up first, and if I’m not up and complaining about it being time to go to bed, she gives me a little head rub on the way past, just so I knows.

I then follow her up, she gets in one side, and I get on the other.  Then Dad comes up, and he has to get in on the side where he can.  I’ll lay there for a bit in the middle, but I normally sleep at the bottom, in between Mum’s feet, so as I don’t get squashed in the night.

Last night though, I was so tired, even though Mum told me it was bedtime, I went back to sleep on my cushion.  They went to bed, and waited, and waited, and waited.  In the end Dad got up again and came down and got me. 

He said “Honestly Puss, I can’t get any sleep with you on the bed” (because apparently I’m always in the way – as you can see I do take up rather a lot of room - and I purr too loudly), “but I can’t get any sleep with you not on the bed either!”.  I think he was worried about me.  Bless!

This much!

Now, I know it doesn't look like it, but I am guarding the door.


I might look cute and cuddly, but rest assured, that's just a disguise.

More Weight Thoughts

Thanks to everyone who left comments about my not losing any weight.  I think the real problem is that I’d rather be sleeping on the bed than running about exercising.  Sometimes I don’t even eat all the food Mum weighs out for me! 

And Whicky, about the poo thing.  I hadn’t thought about that, and I poo a lot, so that would make a big difference.  The V-E-T did say that they should weigh me once a month, so maybe after the first fortnight is being a bit previous..

Mum has duly noted the comments about the food, but I really don’t like wet food.  Give me the dried stuff any day, and I’ll snaffle that down as quick as looking at it.  Mum bought me a tin of Tesco’s Finest Catsucculent Flakes of Tuna the other week, before I was on the diet.Not a very good picture I know, but blame the Tesco Website.  I liked the smell of it, and got quite excited once she put it into my bowl.  I didn’t actually eat any of the tuna, but I gave the jelly a good licking!

I don’t really think I am overweight, and neither does Dad.  I’ve always been a big ginger mancat!  Mum is a bit worried though, as she knows overweight kitties can have problems.  I’m just gonna tell her to stop worrying, and it’s back to bed for me!!

The Big Weekend Weigh In

You may remember when I was catnipped to the V-E-T’s, and the V-E-T said I was too fat and needed to lose some weight?  Well, this weekend, we had the big weigh in. 

2 weeks ago, I was 8.1 kg.  I’ve been very good and haven’t cheated.  Mum has been carefully weighing out my food each morning, even though it takes a lot longer and I have to complain greatly to speed things up. 

So after all that, how come that I now weigh 8.2 kg, heavier than when we started.  I need to have a lie down to think about that.


I’m a big fat ginger heavier than when I started cat!

Busy in the Garden with a New Scratch Post

I’ve been really busy today, in the garden, snoopervising the construction of a new house-cum-scratch post that Dad’s building for me.  Here’s my old one.  As you can see, it’s looking pretty ropy.  Dad had to add some supports on the bottom, cos I kept pulling it over. 

CIMG1237 Mum always puts my mousies back on the bottom, after she’s picked them up from where I’ve left them all over the house.

Anyway, this snoopervising is hard work, so I need a bit of a lay down.

CIMG1235I can snoopervise at the same time, cos I’m good at multi-tasking.  Here’s the thing he’s making.  As you can see, it’s not quite finished yet.

CIMG1233It’s made out of solid oak, apparently, so I won’t be able to knock it over.  I’m a bit worried about falling off, to be honest.

Here I am snoopervising the glue drying.

CIMG1234Will let you know how the finished thing turns out.
