So she says


We heard her muttering something about wanting to show you her jugs. She said she just can't get them in focus and she's spent a lot of time trying. She hasn't been around much this week. Judging by the amount of fabric lying around I guess she's back on the pompoms. There's also talk of the oldest daughter's birthday this weekend, we even heard her say she just couldn't bear to go shopping again and that it's impossible choosing presents for teenagers!


She said she's feeling really bad about not visiting her blogging friends as much as usual. We think you'll understand. She says an afternoon in front of the computer with a cup of tea and one of us on her lap, catching up on all your news sounds like heaven.

The other day, she caught us chasing (er, playing with) the squirrels in the garden. She said 'has anyone else noticed just how fat the squirrels are this year" As much as she loves squirrels she hopes she doesn't end up with them running round her kitchen like our neighbour did. We said we wouldn't mind!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your cat looks SO MUCH like a cat I used to have (Roscoe). Very clever putting this from the cat's point of view.

Very pretty cat. Looks like it is really focusing hehe.

Loved this post:) I'm afraid I really dislike squirrels because of all the damage they do to trees so you can 'play' with them as much as you like as far as I'm concerned:) I'm referring to grey squirrels of course, please don't upset the pretty red ones. Incidentally you are very handsome, I hope we'll be hearing from you again.

Very interesting post Mr(or Mrs?) Pussycat. You should tell your Mum that she shouldn't worry about not having so much time this week. We all have weeks like that. But she should definitely take half and hour or so to herself with a nice cup of tea.
As for the squirrels, I know I shouldn't encourage you to chase them, but after a family of them set up home in my Mum and Dads loft some years ago, and caused a lot of damage, well, a little chasing wouldn't do so much harm.

Wouldn't it be fun if we really knew what our pets were thinking!
Looking forward to seeing more pompoms.

Sweet post! Our cat doesn't go out, so she isn't able to play with our squirrels (we have a coyote problem here).

Have fun cat-snuggling this weekend! =)

How did you get a hold of the computer? We won't tell on you. Crawl up in her lap, pat her cheek gently, all will be right with the world. FYI if you have chased and caught any of the furry beasts, best leave them off the lap.

You are welcome to chase the grey squirrels from our garden anytime.

Tell your mum that we all love her blog very much and appreciate that she is very busy with other things sometimes! Unlike you pussycats of course, who have perfected the art of relaxation!!
