Don't faint ....... It's me!!

YAY!  We have made a card and just wanted to pop up to wish everyone Yuletide Felicitations! It has been quite a year one way and another with lots of "stuff" that The Staff  (aka TAT) has had to deal with and it has taxed her limited brain cells to the max! 😐

But you don't want to know about her! 😼 I have been very busy keeping things up to scratch around here πŸ˜‚   As you know there is always much to do to keep the humans in order and I have had to marshal the troops in order to accomplish this.....

Yep! All present, but not necessarily correct!!

Anyway, moving on! Ahem! 😸 *clears throat* ............

A Festive Pome

It's at that time of year,
When families do gather.
It's so much fun - break out the rum!
But please don't tell grandfather!

The children play and laugh with joy.
Their little faces beaming.
Then daddy steps upon a toy,
And everyone is screaming!

Grandma chokes upon a nut,
She coughs and splutters loudly.
Someone slaps her on the back,
The nut emits profoundly.

We wish you a happy Christmas.
We hope it will be merry.
But if the rellies get too much,
Start on that case of sherry!

Wishing everyone a terrific 2018

My Day from H*ll!

Hello Everyone, I have snuck in here because I want to tell you about the terrible time I've had! I thought I might have to have therapy, but maybe telling you will help me come to terms with my trauma and somehow find a way to move on!

It was a dark and stormy day (not really, but added for effect!) and I was minding my own business as I do. All of a sudden I heard a horrible sound! I peeked a look out the window and my worst fears were confirmed. Yes, Danny The Window Cleaner was next door with his rods and wooshy water machine and was doing his best to remove the rendering from the walls of the house!! 

As I looked, Toby the Tibetan Terrier emerged from his lair, saw me and started his horrendous barking! Good grief! I decided discretion is the better part of valour and retreated behind the sofa πŸ™€

When the furore died down several weeks days hours later I emerged and eager to put it behind me, followed the Staff person into the garage to supervise her as she tried to read the meter. As she is quite sensitive, I obviously didn't want her to feel crowded, so I was, as is my wont, discreet.  So what happened? Yep, you guessed!  She did her business, went out and closed the door. I waited quietly. And I waited. And I waited some more. Come on, you're having a laugh! It's not funny anymore! 



It's me!!


Not a scooby doo!! Nothing! Silence! Like the grave!

I was shut in, incarcerated, dumped, without even a second thought!

Weeks days hours Half an hour later someone heard what sounded like a circular saw on steel girders and came to investigate.  About $!%%& time! I could have starved to death in here!!  The upside is, the door will not need to be stripped before it's repainted and my front claws won't need a manipedi for a several years! 😸

Revenge is sweet though!  A little later when the household were relaxing, I deposited my supper in three places on the carpet right where SHE walks!! 😹

Kitties, do you think I will ever get over this?

Happy 10th Birthday Austin!!!

The Staff AKA TAT here!  

I know Austin is on a sabbatical from blogging, but I just had to pop up here to wish my sweet boy a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY as it is a very important one. He has now reached double figures! πŸ™€  Here he is when he first came to me over nine years ago!! Such a cute little fellow!!

To celebrate this momentous day, he invited his old muckers, Mini Me, Mini Tux and Tigger over for a cook-out on the lawn!  He is also very very chuffed that his bestest girl Katie Isabella zipped through the tunnel to join them!! Here is one very contented kitty!

CATachresis Presents .......

Austin's New House!






NB A few nights ago whilst I was minding my own business at 3 a.m. A hairy biped said they caught me trying out my new house for size. They said I was fast asleep and snoring! However there is absolutely no visual or audial proof of this, so I will leave it to you dear reader to make up your own mind as to its veracity!

In other matters ...
Spring is sprunging in the field opposite. The lamb was only just born and mum was bathing it in front of an audience! 😹

Can anyone here speak Meow?

Hi everyone! It's me! Do you remember? I don't blame you if you don't! Here's the thing! It's been a trying few weeks with The Affiliate Typist getting a bit lackadaisical in taking down my blogging ruminations!  Anyway we did eventually have a chat about it! But there did seem to be a communication problem, though! 

Please could you watch the following and tell me how we could both get on the same page?  Blimey! It's only been nine years since I moved in. It could be crucial to any future we might have in the blogosphere!  But you'd think we understand each other a bit better by now! 

You might need to turn the sound up!

Well, there you go! Any advice will be thankfully received!

While we are here, we would also like to join in and introduce everyone to Teddy Kimmell. He was chosen by Angel Sammy to go and live with his Mom and Dad and keep them from being lonely. And it looks like he has settled in very well already. You can click on his picture below to pop over and say hi! There is also a blog hop hosted by Friends Forever and Madi and Mom, which you can join in here.

Finally I am submitting a selfie for the Sunday Selfie blog hop hosted by the Kitties Blue.

I seem to be getting a bit thin on top, but I'm not proud! Actually it's just the light! MOL 😹

The G4 Summit!

The Staff here: A momentous event is taking place as I write! Queen Penelope of Canada, Alaska and The Northern Territories has summoned to her domain, representatives from across the globe to discuss the state of the feline economy in the Gato 4 summit. 

Attending the summit with Queen Nellie are: HM Katie Isabella, Queen of Tennessee and all Neighbouring Lands, Chairman Flynn of the People's Republic of Devon and, of course, Archduke Austin Towers, Prince of Anglesey and Wales. 

Here they are taking time out from their hectic schedule to .........
......... do what they do best ..... hangin', chillin', nappin' and snugglin'
Other world leaders please take note! πŸ˜†
(Picture credit to Nellie's mom who took this clandestine shot!)

It is hoped great things will be achieved and momentous decisions made, not the least is solving the world treat shortage and discussing the more equal distribution of class A nip. 

😺 Check out Nellie's blog today! 😺

A Coy Selfie!

Hi Everyone! I was trying to make The Staff get off the com poo terr and play with me, or feed me, or, let me out, or something! What did she do? She selfied me without my permission!! 😾  

She says I was being coy and that I was beguiling her!!! Huh? I said I was dying of starvation! Look at me! Practically a skeleton with floof!! She said I should stop carping! πŸ™€

Much against my better judgement and under duress I am entering it into the Sunday selfie blog hop hosted by my good friends The Cat on my Head

Happy New Year selfie .. with video and everything!

Hi Everyone! I hope you have all had a good Christmas and received some nice nip pressies.  I certainly did! 😺 In fact I received a super pressie from my special friend, Katie Isabella, Queen of all Tennessee and Neighbouring Lands. Here I am getting high appreciating it. 

I apologise for the quality of the filming! Spielberg was busy, so I had to use the person who was cheap and available at short notice! πŸ‘΅  

You can see last evening's jollifications went with a whizz!  Here I am celebrating with my two favouritest ladycats, Katie Isabella😻 and Nellie Bellie😻 

Please can you send all your purrs and prayers for Nellie. Despite the fact she was knocking back the niptinis last night, she is not a well kitty. Nellie, we send you smoochies, kisses and lots of purrs, sweetheart πŸ’—πŸ’•πŸ’—πŸ’•πŸ’—
