Being abandoned

SS and gran are going away for 2 weeks to visit relatives. Poor little me will once again be abandoned. SS assured me that I would be well looked after by her sister during her absence. Yes, the food, milk and treats will be there, but it's not the same - no one to play, pet and cuddle me, no one to coo at me and no soft tummy to knead on............ :(((((.

We shall miss each other and all of you during this time.

Here I am enjoying the autumn sunshine beside my purrsonal evergreen garden corner before the weather turns cold and I have to stay indoors more and more .........

Enjoy your days! We'll be back in mid May, please don't forget me!
BTW, SS has just entered me into the contest for Miss November at the Calendar Cats. Please consider voting for me in the coming week.

Thursday in the Garden

While the hibiscus and daisies are still going strong, most of the other flowers, such as bottle brushes, roses and jasmine, are on their last legs. This is the only new bloomer in the last week.....
It is a native. Its pretty pink blossoms attract many birdies but as it is quite a tall tree with slender trunk and branches, they are not within my reach. I resign myself to following the fading sun.

Floof needed

As the days are getting shorter and the nights are decidedly cooler, this kitty.....

Needs to morph into this kitty soon......

The amount of floof to be generated requires a lot of fuel input. Therefore, I need more sustenance in the form of treats and food. Do you hear that, SS?

Visit to Fin

After celebrating the birthdays of my LSIF, Siena, and her mom, we bade Chilli farewell in the morning and become airborne again on the Magic Carpet.

Here we are, loaded with treats and presents, flying over the warm desert towards the home of our SIF, Fin.

She shows us around her spring garden and we share the treats which SS and Siena’s mom thoughtfully provided……

Thirsty after the treats? No problem. Fin shows us how to drink from her fountain of cool, tasty water…..

Too soon, it’s time to say goodbye and we return to our respective homes...

Taking a trip

I am embarking on a long trip to a faraway place. Here I am on the Magic Flying carpet...

On my way to help celebrate the second birthday of my little sister-in-floof, Siena.

Inside the box is....

Please go over and wish her, and her mom, a happy birthday and see what we are up to....

We are planning an adventure trip after her birthday. Come with us tomorrow to another land and another kitty's place.

Seeking the sun

Sunday – an auspicious day for this kitty to survey the garden for sunny spots. It is becoming increasingly imperative as the days are getting shorter and cooler. Where we live is quite temperate by most standards, hence all the more reason I have to find warm spots to toast myself in the winter months since I can theoretically stay outdoors in the garden all the time. I would like to stress ‘theoretically’ because I don’t really want stay out all the time. This kitty is not stupid enough to stay out when it’s windy, wet or under 15C (60F).

After deliberation, the favoured places are:

At SS’s study door for the morning sun....

On top of the BBQ for the midday sun.....

In front of the side door of the garage for the afternoon sun.....

Of course, the roof is good for all day sun but terribly inconvenient when I am called for treats and snacks.....

That more or less covers the daylight hours. At night, it’s indoors by SS’s command.

Old Furriends remembered

Apart from my dear 'sisters' ....

I have had the honour and pleasure of making some very special furriends in the CB. While many kitties in the CB have been extremely kind, friendly, caring and supportive, these have touched my life in a special way. This post is dedicated to them.

I have listed them chronologically, as I met them during the time I have been blogging.

Karl and Ruis

Karl introduced me to the CB and I have never looked back.

Zoolatry - Maggy and Zoey

Miss Ann and the Zoolatry girls were among my earliest visitors and showered me with their friendship and attention.

Topcatrules - Trixie, Pyewacket and Tigger

The girls at the TCR were frequent visitors and we had outings and parties together. I miss them!

Opus and Roscoe

Opus and Roscoe hosted the first themed party that I was invited. I was very sad when Roscoe went to to Bridge. One day we will meet again.

Jan's Funny Farm

The furries at Jan's Funny Farm have been firm friends. We have had good times at parties and offered each other support in sad times.

Dr Tweety

Ah, my drinking mate! Please come back to the blogging world soon.

Socks, Scylla and Charybdis

Last but not least, my boyfriend Socks and his sisters. We have such fun time in each other's company.

Yes, some of them has gone to the Bridge and some have stopped blogging. Nonetheless, they remain in my fond memory forever.

Thursday in the Garden

It's been wet lately so I have been staying indoors much of the time and only come out to inspect the garden with SS when the rain eases up. See the yellow flower behind me?

It bloomed almost overnight. It's wild, as are much of the plants in our garden. It has a lovely fragrance too. Most of these native plants have huge, colourful flowers.

Thursday gardening

It's been raining, which is good for the garden but not so good for me as I don't like getting my coat and paws wet.

Remember the big pot plant with the red flowers that I showed last week, here it is again behind me to my left....

Well, look at the flowers in full bloom...

Isn't that something! We are pretty sure it belongs to the Protea family.

Here is our evergreen corner. It's my corner, since it is right by the foot of the garden lounge where I like to rest and snooze during the day, especially when it's wet.

This last picture is for those who like to hunt in the garden....

Baby LIZARDS!!!!! Aren't they cute though? There have been quite a few in my garden lately, living mainly in or around the basin. They are safer there as they would be out of my sight. SS just has to be careful not to flush them down the drain when she turns the tap on.
