A Whole New Year!!

Happy New Year everyone! Wow! Can’t think where the old one went so fast! Last post was in August. I am writhing in shame at my sloth. Well – cats do sleep a lot.

We have been busy scratching up cardboard boxes since then, and hiding all manner of: paper balls, twist tie rings, a gazillion catnip mice and various valuable items that Mum doesn’t know she has lost yet.

So, in September, my namesake – or am I, his? – my Uncle Andrew anyway, came for a visit. That put everything in an uproar! He was sleeping in the upstairs guestroom and was fair game for Cfer and Gus. I only snooze with Mum. Gretchen prefers to sleep in one of Joey’s beds. Oh – Joey is the Jack Russell Terrorist that lives here too. Anyway, Andrew can’t resist trying to cuddle with Gretchen. This usually involves a mad chase, crashing and burning etc. and then some whining. “Why won’t she let me hold her?!”

Mum says “Ignore her. Sooner or later she’ll be begging you for love, and you’ll have a hard time getting rid of her!” And eventually that’s just what happened. Gretchen looking for affection is impossible to ignore! But then the whining was “Why won’t he let me pet him?!” This referred to me. The response was – “Ignore him. When he decides you’re worthy, he’ll let you know.”

She’s a good old gal, my Mum.

By the end of Uncle Andrew’s stay, I realised he was pretty cool and let him pet me a time or two. But I wouldn’t snuggle with him.

October and November went by in a blurr. But I discovered a really neat site! Check out http://www.palmbeachzoo.com and click on the baby jaguar videos. She is such a sweetie!

Now! Christmas is over, it’s 2009, and there is a whole new year of possibilities ahead. Are you excited?!

    Andy, you look exactly like MY cat!

    Are those cat naps as enjoyable as they seem? I don’t remember what it was like to nap when I pleased.
