♫♪ All creatures ..........

....... great 
....... and small ♪♫

If the bottom pictures are a bit blurry it is because Mini-Me moves too fast!

Austin here. I have had quite a week and have been UTB for much of it as there has been fireworks, thunder and lightning, nasty builder blokies and gale force winds, not necessarily in that order. The Staff has also been mentally MIA for much of the week so hasn't helped me visit and comment, which has been a big downer :(

I am putting together an official complaint to submit to the Federation of Feline Bloggers to try and get her removed from her position as "Staff" and reduced to the role of "Snivelling Menial". This will probably be a very long and drawn out process as she has some clout (so she says)! I felt like giving her a clout the other day I can tell you when she forgot my statutory five treats - as laid down in our official contract signed in blood ... her blood!!

Happy Sunday everyone!!

PeeEss If you think I am sucking my thumb in the first picture, think again! I don't have thumbs, but that doesn't stop me giving clouts ;)

  3. Have a serene Sunday and get in some big easy today. Stay safe and dry Austin. The boom booms have already started here and I spent last night behind the sofa.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. My goodness what a week, Austin! On top of all that to have the Staff be so unreliable is beyond what you should have to put up with, especially forgetting your treats. I hope you have a great Sunday and the staff shapes up quickly!

  7. Wow, it sounds like things have been decidedly unpleasant around your place, Austin! You need to give your human the smacky paw of doom to get her brain back in order!

  8. Hmm...we had horrifying thunderstorms AND firecrackers last week too. Sadly, we had no access to UTB as the door to the bedroom was shut. We had to settle for the storeroom instead.

  9. My Dear Lovely Austin,

    You are looking very handsome in your pictures - that other black kitty does not have nearly your sexy shiny black furs!

    Kisses,
    Sassy Silvervine

  11. Unbelievable, the incompetence you have to put up with. Actually, we suffer the same level of sniveliness with our Mommy as you do with your Staff so we DO believe it.

    There ought to be a law.

  12. There should be a central database where we can all get decent staff from instead of those defective ones.
    Love the photos of you and mini!

  16. No fireworks or builders here, but it has been very wet and windy.
    You may want to think about it before you report your staff or you might find your blog renamed Mini Me Towers!

  17. Sometimes you just cant get the staff these days! I didn't know what UTB was till I read the next bit then knew exactly what, and where, that is.

    It the smacky paw isn't working your could always freak her out with sitting 2inches from her nose and doing the death stare communication?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Give her a clout for me too! I dunno. I'd suggest trading staff but I wouldn't be able to unnerstand a bloody thing your staff uttered.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh do I know all about PROcrastination! I gotz it bad. I love seeing you Austin with Mini-You! It is a most excellent thing to have a blankie to be under during stressful times. We have booms going off too but deer season has started. I wish fireworks were no more!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Humans can be so unreliable! Hope the fireworks and other scary noises have calmed down.

  21. Austin, you just can't get good help these days.

  22. Your definition describes our personal helper purrPurrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulieta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jofectly. She claims that there are just not enough hours in the day. We say, there are just not enough brains in her head. MOL.

  23. Hi Austin. I'm sorry I haven't popped by sooner. I hope you can soon come out from under the bed. Tomorrow night will probably be noisy, if the weather is dry, so get the staff to find you some earplugs.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Your staff sounds as well trained as mine!!

  25. Austin my friend, if you decide to circulate some kind of petition about the staff removal thing due to abandonment of duties, let me know. I'll happily sign on the dotted line (and I have thumbs so I can hold a pen).

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  26. Oh, no sweet Austin we are sad that you had to spend so much time UTB...that was some loud and scary stuff going on at your place. Oh, Austin if you are successful removing your Staff will you please help us remove ours. She is the queen of procrastination when it comes to posting a blog for us. Stay safe and we hope you do not have to be UTB this week. Hugs and nose kisses

  27. I hope your peep has come to her senses and has got her priorities figured out correctly. No treats? Shocking!

  33. I think Glogirly has a degree in Procrastination. We are glad to know you are alive and well, Austin. Say mew to the staff for us. Since she's in charge of food disbursement, you should probably cut her a little slack.

  34. Oh dear, Austin. You just cannot get the snivelling menials these days.

  36. What? Thumb sucking?? well I can't imagine anyone would EVER think that...maybe dew claw sucking, but definitely NOT thumb...heh...heh

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yikes dear buddy, it sounds like a week for sure! Purrs to you and to Caro...and to the little guy too (it looks like he is out of sorts for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  38. That mini Austin does look very fast, it's no wonder if he has a blurry photo! ;) I hope you're able to get your staff issues resolved without too much bloodshed!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sundays are exactly for that! Hope you had a great snooze.

  40. Dearest Austin, you have given mommy an idea!! (someone should!)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Me too is thinking on contact FOFB and get my mom-person removed from her post !!
    XOXO

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh dear. I think it'll be hard to find someone who understands the word Menial the way your Staff does.

    I vote to keep the Staff!

We LOVE to hear from you! :)
