In which we have an intruder!

So there we were, Tigger and me, enjoying our Sunday afternoon Easy in the summerhouse with the Staff aka TheAffiliateTypist and all of a sudden the StaffakaTAT murmured something and slowly hauled her ageing bod up from her lowly seat! 

As she is now tugging urgently at my whiskers, I shall have to hand over to her for the rest of the story!

Psssst! Come closer! It was a lovely sunny afternoon. The birds were singing, the dogs were barking, the lawn mowers were mowing, the kids were screaming, almost drowning out the sound of the jet fighters from RAF Valley roaring overhead. In fact it was a typical summer's day. I looked up from my book and smiled to myself as I glanced at Austin on one chair and Tigger on the other with me perched precariously on the poof reading my kindle!


The word "idyllic" came to mind. During a lull, as my gaze drifted over the bucolic scene outside, it was suddenly transfixed! "Hello" I said. "Where have you come from?"

(apologies as I had to slightly overexpose the pictures)

She (for I am sure it was a she) was walking towards me while I was talking gently to her. We were connecting, I just felt it!

And then, I heard Austin behind me meowing his displeasure that I'd moved outside without his permission. But he hadn't seen her as he wound himself around my legs trying to herd me back inside.  I said "Austin, do you not want to invite our guest in for a ....... UH OH!"


He'd seen her! He suddenly morphed from a loving gentle floofy kitty into a mean and mighty hunter and protector all bristling whiskers and bottle brush tail!

"Austin" I said feebly. "Don't ......... "

It was too late! A blood-curdling scream that was Stephen King meets Edvard Munch filled the air as Austin hurled himself at the Siamese. At this terrible sound, Tigger (and probably half the village) woke up! He stumbled outside and heaved his bulk onto the wall. "Errrr, Um ....?"


The earth tilted on its axis and the anticlimactic aftershock was felt as far away as Llandudno! The Siamese cocked her snook and pitter patted away!

The boys live to nap another day. I do hope the little Siamese comes back, though!

  3. Now Austin, if the little Siamese comes back maybe you should invite her in for some catnip. She might be quite nice

  8. Were you protecting your TAT, Austin? The little Siamese is cute. She may not pose much of a threat so maybe you'll be slightly more welcoming next time...?

    Love the Word of the Day and accompanying photo. :)

  10. What a cute little cat! I hope Austin hasn't scared her away for good.

    Although actually she looks more annoyed than scared.

  18. Oh, I was on the edge of my seat! (Pretty little thing!) Our neighbor's cat comes in our yard every once in a while, and Rita goes nuts! But once the cat turned and hissed at her and Rita screamed like a little girl, and it echoed up and down the canyon our house sits on!

  21. Oh Austin what a pretty siamese lady is looking for you in your garden. We feel she must be smitten with your dark furs and rugged good looks.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  23. Gosh - she really was a very graceful and petite and BEAUTIFUL introducer Austin. You may have missed your chance to make a new friend of the "girl" persuasion. She appeared to be ready to be a gracious visitor but obviously, as King of the castle you needed to let her know WHO was in residence and WHO wasn't welcome there! Maybe she'll try again.....!!

    Hugs, Sammy

  28. You really should thank Austin for protecting you, that Siamese probably wasn't nearly as sweet as she looked.. and was there to steal all your gushy foods

    ReplyDelete
  29. Do you think she was coming to steal your typist, er human?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow Austin we'd like to have you as our enforcer!

  31. She sure looks pretty, Austin. We loved your bottle brush and manly menace! Our mom is with your mom - she hopes the meezer comes back.
    Oh, and we love the word for the day!

  32. Oh no Austin - she is a beauty! You should be wooing her not shooing her :)

  34. That was a captivating story. I'm willing to bet your intruder won't be back anytime soon. I, too, have screamed that scream. It was around 2 a.m. and I made the most wretched wail I imaginable. Mom and Dad jolted awake and bolted from their bed expecting to find one of us gushing blood from a missing limb (Sammi already had a missing limb but they feared one of us had lost another). It was just me, sitting in the front window screaming at an intruder cat.

  35. oh dear...I hope she has a home. And Savvy would do same as Austin. We have a black kitty visiting our back garden lately and when Savvy saw her she became another cat. Feral, gutteral yowling and snarling...it was scary. Poor kitty. Thankfully Savvy did not take her angst out on TKS

  36. We've heard of that Siamese gang.
    I bet there were at least a couple hundred of them.
    Thank COD you were on the scene, Austin. ; )

    ReplyDelete
  37. GloGirly is right. That Siamese gang is the toughest one in all of the UK. How did a member ever get into your garden like that? Austin, Tigger..better ramp up sekuritee.

  38. Oh, what a sweet girl. Too bad she left. We hope you see her again, so you can share her with us. Austin looks like Misty May whenever she gets after Astrid who screams bloody murder when it happens. So we know the sound to which you refer. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  39. She did look rather pretty, Austin! She knows how brave and intrepid you are now, so perhaps next time you can make friends.

We LOVE to hear from you! :)
