O-strich Of The Imagination

Look what we've got! Giant feathers! Woooo! They are like normal feathers, but WAY WAY bigger, and so obviously WAY WAY MORE FUN!

Let me tell you the story of how we got them...  So, Lila and I were just relaxing out in the garden.

I was just having a wash, and was about to have a nap...

They looked so yummity, and we hadn't had lunch so we chased them around the garden... caught them... and ate them, one each. After we ate them we were super sleepy so I had a snooze.

But then the scary man-cat from up the road came into the garden and we both ran inside, so we brought the feathers in with us.

And so THAT is how we got our new toys! They are so much fun to play with, they are big enough to stand up to a bit of bunny-kicking, plus you can really get your teeth into them, and they taste great when you lick them, mmm ostrichy goodness.

Like all our favourite toys though, they go away into a cupboard at night. Boo!

Not So Dramatic Cat

Remember the video of Mia sticking her tongue out like a muppet? Well Rachel was bored last night (I don't know why, she's got a huge to-do list, or she could have been feeding us treats or pointing the red dot around for us), so she added some exciting sounding music to the video make Mia a Dramatic Cat!!

Sit In

Today we went on STRIKE. (What's that you say? How can a cat go on strike when we sleep 23 hours of the day on average anyway? How very dare you!).

Anyway, back to the subject at hand. We were most put out when Rachel and Pete came home from work tonight and set to making THEIR dinner before attending to our gustatory needs! Worse still, their dinner involved opening at least two cans, which was pure torture.

When we realised our food wasn't immediately forthcoming, we decided to stage a protest. We briefly conferred over what form this should take. A march with placards? Too much effort, and besides, we can't hold writing implements. Picketing the oven? Unfortunately the humans can easily sweep us aside on the shiny kitchen floor. Hunger strike? Seemed counterproductive in the circumstances. Mia tentatively suggested a dirty protest ... but being hygenic types we eventually decided on a good old sit in in the saucepan cupboard.
Mia put on her best "I'm Grumpy" face.

I found a place with a little extra head height...

It worked! After a few minutes, Rachel started washing up our food bowls.

We watched her closely, but we didn't come out until our delicious meaty feast was dished out and waiting for us.

That'll teach them!!

Badger Badger Badger...

We had a special visitor this weekend, it was so exciting! It was shuffly, short legged and had a stripy black and white head. Can you guess what it is yet?!

Actually there were two of them. The first one at first glance appeared rather round and pudgy... but ACTUALLY it was just its fur.

It went for a little walk around the lounge, and had a good old sniff of the carpet.  I think it liked all the hairs we had carefully laid down on the floor.

Badgercat2

Pete tried to pet it - he loves badgers, he even plays for a cricket team named after them!

Badgercat5

Although you might think meles meles is rather solitary and grumpy, this one wasn't. It liked having its ears scratched.

Badgercat4

The other badger was more relaxed. It had a nap on the sofa for a little while.

Badgercat1

Then it too went for a little stroll and also had a close inspection of the carpet.

Badgercat3

Gosh, they've got much longer tails than you'd expect, haven't they?! They were ever so lovely and soft and very well house trained. We did like having them around but after a while they had to go back to their sett in the woods, boo. Maybe we'll see them again soon one day?!
