You know what it's like when you go from one room to another with purpose, but as soon as you get there you forget why you went? Well, it's a bit like that with blogging at the moment. I open up new post on blogger and I immediately lose focus and wander off into Google to ask questions like "who was the mother of Richard the First?"* Before I know it I'm deep into the bowels of the internet researching Wittgenstein's Tractatus. No focus. See!
And Austin is no help! He does all these cute things like napping and playing and napping and eating and napping and napping, but he's so super quick that by the time I've lumbered over to the camera or picked up the iphone he's moved onto something else equally as enthralling and I've forgotten what it was supposed to about anyway! And why is it he looks his cutest and most gorgeous when the light is bad and I am practically comatose?
Here is Austin napping in a riveting way in bad light on a dark blanket taken at a very bad angle.
It is such cutting edge filmature that I daren't upload to YouTube for fear the whole caboodle crashes with the bazillion hits it will get in the first hour.
We haven't seen Tigger very much over the winter either, so I can't even post assorted pictures of him eating Austin's food - Tigger eating from the left. Tigger eating from the right. Tigger eating upside down. The possibilities are endless, if only Tigger would turn up!
And then I forgot that yesterday was "Answer your cat's questions" day. Austin doesn't have any questions to be fair. He only has instructions - feed me now; get DaBird; scritch my chin; let me out; let me in; let me out ....
Which reminds me (though don't know why it should!). Austin has received one or two (or more) awards just lately and I am aware that he hasn't gracefully accepted them .. or even ungracefully! Please bear with us while he and I negotiate a deal where he can display all his bling without responsibility. It's an ongoing discussion.
One other thing. Austin would be so happy if more people would "like" his facebook page. He is getting very depressed at the stats he receives from facebook every month which basically say nobody likes him. I tell him that it would help if he posted some interesting status updates now and again. He's thinking about it!
