Kitty is back


Of all our cats , Kitty has found adapting to Alice the hardest . She probably has most direct contact with the dog , coming nose to nose through the baby gate at the top of the stairs and refusing steadfastly to back away when the dog bounces up and tries to break through to get at the cat's food supply and their lovely resting places on the beds and in particular on the hot water bed . But its the Birmans who have slowly but surely made their way back down at nights when we are all in and the dog is safely esconsed on the sofa usually flat on her back legs in the air cockroaching , and Kitty has kept out of the way unless to plod down occasionally to remind us we have missed her tea time or some such .
But today , this morning , maybe its the storm ( its snowing as I write ) , here she is , firmly established on D 's desk and ready for the next round of Desk Wars .
Oh Joy .


Big Old Fish

Big old fish on King Edwards Bay . very tricky for Alice to approach . Waves threatening to engulf her . Also the smell , and her nerves to take into account , plus her memories of the baby seal pup CatCalls: Seal pup on the beach , King Edward's Bay Tynemouth and how it snarled at her when she was trying to be friendly that day . Better approach this one a bit more carefully .....

Has it got teeth ?


Gettting Closer ..


Whoa , look at this , just like that pollock they fed me when I wasn't well .

Don't go to school Nat ....!


Stormy night and the wind howling all night . Nat up in good time for school , came down and sat staring into space . When I asked is she ok she says Yes , its just so wet and windy I think for once Id just like to stay at home . At that point the dog drags herself off the sofa , no mean feat , as shes been glued there since her breakfast , staggers over and gives Nat a big hug . Its like she's making a pact . Ok , you stay home with me . Lie on the sofa with me and we 'll just do nothing all day . You re not allowed to watch tv or go on the laptop mind you . nat gets into the swing of it . Yes right ok and we 'll have a litttle bell to ring and mum can bring us food and snacks all day long Alice how about that ?
