Harry has learnt a real neat trick - he can get the big drawer in the kitchen open if it's not tightly shut, and guess what we keep in there??? That's right it the food drawer! It's got cans but it also has the dry food and we have managed to rip that open. We are now self-sufficient Mencats!
I just wanted to let everyone know what is happening and why Mama & Wix haven't been blogging.
This week is the final week of the Whiskas competition and although Winston made it into the top 20 for Victoria - YAY! - he needs to stay there so Mama has been doing lots of campaigning on his behalf, leaving not a lot of time for blogging. It ends this friday so paws crossed he stays in the top 20.
Also Mama has been working on getting her ETSY store back up and running where she sells greeting cards, she hasn't got a lot listed yet but she is working on it. You can see it here if you're interested.
As for me, I have been busy mousing. This catnip mouse here has been causing problems so I go and catch it along with lots of mewing and bunny kicking and when I am sure he is almost dead I take him to Mama. Only problem is he seems to be back the next day.... a mousers work is never done.
Mama and Wix promise that they will be back and visiting you all next week.
The last couple of days has had some sunshine so Mr.Raji has been spending quality time in the garden. He and Tabby are lucky because they can stay out all day unsupervised and not cause trouble (as if I would cause trouble!). Hopefully it will be good weather again tomorrow and I can go out in my harness and look at the flowers too. Have a great day...
Brrrrr it is really cold here today which meant I couldn't go outside today which was no fun, but I hunkered down and found a good place to sleep and I also helped Mama bake an apple cake - well I ate the top off it when she wasn't looking which is the same as helping and now I know that it is safe for peoples to eat.
A couple of people asked if Harry and the cousins go outside, well at this stage Harry hasn't but he will soon (although he says he's not wearing any harness). Q does not because she cannot be trusted, she runs off and chases birds. Raji and Tabby spend most of the day outside.
Tabby likes to go round the traps and check that everything is going well but when she thinks no one is looking she gets a little bit silly.
Hi everyone, sorry I haven't blogged for a while but Mama has been real busy moving all her stuff. It's all been done now so we can get back on a regular scheduele.
I am very excited to let you all know that I am featured on this weeks Reader's Pets on author Janet Evanovich's website. Mama loves reading her Stephanie Plum series so it is an honor to be included.
You can check it out here: http://evanovich.com/funstuff/pets
Also at the weekend I got the chance to go outside again. This time we were really organised and I went out in a handsome red harness.
I had a good look round but didn't go too far. Soon I will venture further down the yard and check out what's going on down there.
Harry and I are settling in really well at out new home, sometimes Harry is a bit unsure but he found a good place to nap in a wardrobe. I have been outside, I was a very brave cat and ventured into the shed but then I forgot where I was a freaked out, Mama picked me up to take me inside but I thought she was a stranger so I hissed and scratched at her. Once I was inside I remembered that we had moved and gave Mama a cuddle, I felt bad for hurting her but she says it's OK because sometimes new things can be strange and scary.
As for getting on with the others, I being a very affable fellow have no problems with anyone at all. Harry has remembered that Tabby is his arch-nemisis so he has been hunting her. We keep them apart. Raji just doesn't care either way about us kittehs but he has forgotten who Mama is - this is very rude considering she was the one who made him part of the family! - but we think he is remembering her slowly.
And of course we cannot forget Q - we have the best chasing game ever up and dowm the wooden floor in the hall and she tussles with me. We are great friends. She has also been playing in Harry's scratching pole and been making funny faces for the camera!
Anyway we won't be blogging until next week sometime because Mama is going back to Sydney to collect the rest of our things. In the meantime Gammy will be looking after us - extra snacks!
Also if you are a regular visitor to my blog and I haven't included you on my list of blogging friends and you want to be on it, please let me know and I will get Mama to update it.
Hai everyone hope you all had a great weekend. Harry and I survived our car trip, it was super long but neither of us complained once. I feel a little bit sick when I go in the car so I was glad when it was over.
So now I am a resident of Victoria, we live in the Gippsland region which has lots of interesting things for people to do but is a bit colder than we are used to. We are settling in with our cousins well.
Anyway while I was on my trip I stopped of to get a very special pic for my scratchbook.
This is me in front of Parliment House which is where the government is based, politics is a very manly thing, well it was, we just got a new Prime Minister and she is a lady that has furs the same colour as me, so it was quite a fitting time for me to visit.
Well, we have been super busy here for two days packing all Mama's things (she likes clothes, shoes and handbags as much as I like treats!). Because she has so much stuff we needed super big boxes, which I tested out first to make sure they were right for putting things in...
Looks all OK to me...
Harry shares his feelings about 12 hours in a car...
I finish up by making sure the last of the things are in the suitcase...
Honestly I didn't know you were there Harry (hehehehe)...
Anyway it is pretty much all done now and tomorrow is the big road trip, we even got a new carrier to go in, hopefully all will go well. Happy Fourth of July weekend to all my friends across the Pacific, have a great weekend.
Hai everyone, hope your week is going good. We had some news from Mama today that Gammy and Gampy are coming to visit - hooray! But they are coming all this way to take the two of us and Mama on a really long car trip, 12 hours!!!!! Because we are moving to Victoria (which is a whole other state for those of you overseas) to live with them. Mama says not to worry that she will make sure we are comfortable in the car and that we have plenty of access to water and some meal breaks.
Mama says that this will change our family because instead of me and Harry being brothers we will have our cousins too. Harry will not be happy because he likes to do his own thing (although he is hoping that Jonesie might let him join the feline gardeners association), but I am excited because Q and I always have the best games of chases ever.
Anyway here is todays picture. My friend Daisy saw a toad recently (yuck!) and it reminded me of when I was at Gammy and Gampy's old house at Christmas and this really big lizard came to visit - it was so excitingbut I wasn't allowed to go out and play with it.
Hope you all had a great weekend full of long sleeps and lots of treats. I had a good one here chilling out with Mama and Haz. Last night I was overseeing the cooking Mama was doing and I looked out the window and noticed there was a beautiful full moon, so of course I had to have a photo for my scratchbook.
Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week! Lots of you tried to guess where I was hiding yesterday - it was in the top of closet with Mama's summer dresses, it's a real good place to hide and the dresses make a great bed.
Anyway today is Photo Thursday and I have a picture of Harry. He gets on the sofa at night and towers over Mama while she is watching TV, it makes his eyes all glowing MOL
Today is Mancat Monday for all us proud Mancats so I thought I would show you all what I looked like when I was a mini Mancat. This photo was taken when I first came home, see how much I loved my big brother right from the start!
Happy Furtastic Friday - well I hope you are having a happy one - me not so much. I am sitting here minding my own business when Mama comes home and says she has a present for me. Hooray! I thought, little did I know the horror that would follow. A Snuggie! I had seen them on the TV for persons but didn't know there would be anyone out there rude enough to consider it for cats (dogs maybe, I could see them liking such a thing.) The photo's speak for themselves...
In the end I took it into the kitchen and dumped it near where the trash is put. Hopefully that will be the last of that!
So Mama lost her job last friday and she is kind of upset, that is why we haven't been blogging much cause Mama is sad. Anyway I decided to try and cheer her up by making some funny faces (actually I just forgot to put my tongue away but shhhhhh don't tell).
Mama has been busy making some cat-nip mices for us, they are pretty neat. Harry is modelling them here, the nip seemed a good way to chill out on a sunday.
Harry has mices on the brain (he was not impressed with having it put on his head hehe)
Anyway I won't be blogging this week cause Mama is going away, this means her friends Brett & Anne will be looking after us - I am not too fussed as long as they feed me, but Harry is rather put out cause he doesn't like strangers.
