Next Door Kitty & My Ham-Mick

I think she likes it.

BFGC is not amused!!

Wednesday, 21 December 2011


Well, Dad came home, and said he thought we at least should open the box to see what was in there, even if we didn't actually open anything properly.  Well, I wasn't going to argue with that.  And just look -


Talk about a haul - the box was full right to the top!


I wasn't sure which one to open first, but there was one that was coming undone so we opened that one, although we were a bit perplexed as to what it was.  Dad thought it was a blanket at first, but it wasn't.  Once Mum found and read the card, she realised what it was, and found all the bits.  Dad was then tasked with putting it together.


I snoopervised, of course.  And look, I got my very own Ham-Mick.  And it had been liberally sprinkled with Nip.


I tried it for size, of course.


And I've still got lots of other stuff to open, and there's a present in their for Mum.  Those guys over at Forty Paws have been so generous - thank you so much, again!!

Gone all Christmassy

So, my blog's gone all Christmassy.  It's not very ginger, I know, but I can forgo a bit of gingerness for a bit of Christmasness!

Background from The Cutest Blog on the Block.


My Secret Paws Package!!

OK, I know, same post as on the Secret Paws Blog.  I did tell her she wouldn't get away with that, but she didn't listen!!

This morning, Mum went to the Post Office to pick up a package, and there was a bit of confusion.  She gave the man the card, and he rummaged behind the counter and produced a box.  He was looking a bit confused.  He asked Mum what her name was, so she told him.  He then said "are you sure?"  Mum's looking at him like he's got two heads now, as obviously she knows what her own name is.  Then he says "do you know what this is?" - seems he's not going to give it to her until she comes up with the right name.  Then the penny drops.  Oh, she says, it's for the cat, it will be addressed to the Big Fat Ginger Cat!!  Obviously this is the right answer.  By now, there are 8 people queued up behind her, all of whom are laughing.  It's the cat's Secret Santa package, she says.  More laughter!  Mum comes home, very quickly.

Anyway, it's a big box, bigger than me even, and that's saying something.  Mum woke me up to have a look.

It's a heavy box was well, so it must be full of lots of fantastic goodies.

I've had a good old sniff, but Mum won't let me open it right now.  She says we have to wait for Christmas, or until Dad comes home, at least.

We've done a bit of detective work, so we know it's come from the gang at Forty Paws, all the way from Texas.  So, a big big thank you to them for sending their package all this way.

Once Mum has let me open it, I will tell you all what's in it.

Purrs and Headbutts

When all this is going on..


It's time to retreat to the Kitty Cube and watch from a distance!


BFGC is keeping out of the way!

Boogie Mat

So, after I visited The Poupounette Gang and saw they had a Boogie Mat, I've been pestering Mum to get me one.  Luckily, it didn't take too many headbutts until she gave in. I waited for her to take it out of the bag.
It's very funky, with tassels on the corners and comes with a bag of Nip.  Most exciting.

I was keen to get at it, and didn't want to wait until Mum had taken it out of the packaging.
But she made me wait anyway.   Warning, major cuteness follows.
Then, in I went!
Bit of a paw, then a roll...
then in with the face!!
Then, more rolling..
before totally claiming it as my own.
No-one else is going to get a go on my Boogie Mat!
What do you think Dad?
Mum got it from Amazon, from a man called Jimbobs.  However, when she tried to unzip the zip to get the nip out, it was stuck solid.  Dad said he's open it, but I think that meant he'd break it.  Anyway, Mum e-mailed Jimbobs, and he is a very good guy indeed.  He said very sorry, we'll send you a new one, and please keep the one you have as well.  So now I have two Boogie Mats.

All Christmassy!

Much excitement in our house this morning.  Our Secret Paws package is all wrapped up and ready to go, we've posted about it on the Secret Paws Blog, and Mum has written and sent all the Christmas Cards.  I did ask her why our cards don't have a picture of me on them, like some of the others I have already got, but she didn't seem to know the answer to that!  Ours did have glitter on them, she says, so that must make up for it.  I'm not so sure!

Anyway, after all the excitement, I needed a sit down.


I'm disguised, keeping an eye out for next door kitty, who keeps coming in and eating my treats!  I'll share under duress.

New Blankie!

The BFGC is a lucky kitty, as I've got a new blankie.  Actually, it's not a new blankie, it's been in the wardrobe since Mum and Dad got back from their holidays.  It actually came off the plane, as Mum thought it was nice and fluffy and I'd like it.  However, when she got it home I turned my nose up and wouldn't go anywhere near it.  Now it's been in the wardrobe for a bit, it's all different now.  Here's my blankie (with me on it, of course!).


I sat on it for so long yesterday that Mum couldn't make the bed.  I didn't even move when the hairdryer came out.


You can tell Mum just woke me up.


Ok, Mum did cover me up for this one, but it was all warm and fluffy so I stayed there.

BFGC likes his new blankie!

Very Important Paperwork

At the BFGC's house, we have had to do some very important paperwork.  Namely, Dad's Tax Return.  Mum said that he should do it because if he'd rung up the people at the Tax Office when she told him to he probably wouldn't of had to do one, but he didn't, so we did.  Still with me?

In the end, Mum did most of it, and I helped, of course.  First I cleared the desk.


Then I helped get all the papers out.


Then I checked to make sure the pen was working and didn't smell fully.


Then I double checked the pen again, just to be on the safe side.


Pen seems OK to me!!

Dad said I was a big help!  Mum wasn't so sure.

Slack Mum!

My Mum has been so slack I can't even begin to tell you.  I have no idea what she has been doing, but she definitely hasn't been helping me with my blogging, that's for sure!   I may have to trade her in for a newer model - especially as she is always threatening to swap me for a black cat!!  So, there's lots to catch up on.

Firstly, thank you everyone for all your well wishes.  I have been back to the V-E-T, and had some kind of anti-inflammatory injection.  The V-E-T thought this would wear off after a few days, but I haven't coughed since.  So, we still have no clue what it was, but whatever she gave me seems to have done the trick, which is good news indeed.

On that subject, I am purring hard for GJ (Ginger Jasper), who is a bit poorly at the moment, so please go on over there and leave some purrs and headbutts for him.

Secondly, Mum has at least done something useful, and she's made my blog all ginger!!   And just look at that picture of me at the top - am I not ginger cuteness on a plate (even if I say so myself)?

As for me, the excitement was all to much, so I went off to explore the garden. Unfortunately it was raining, so I came back a bit wet.


Mum didn't seem too pleased when I tried to sit on her cos she said my paws were all muddy!  A lot of unnecessary fuss if you ask me.


Especially as I'm a big fat brave ginger cat who's not afraid of a bit of rain!


At least she says wet cat doesn't smell like wet dog!  I have no idea what she is talking about.

Much more to report later.
