Well, dad came home today. Ozzy went for a stroke after he had been here for an hour or so, but I didn't go to him at all… if he wants a stroke, he can come to me… I'm a cat, not a human servant!
It’s been a quiet weekend. I spent some time in the garden and some time in the house. I still haven't been for a cuddle with dad. Like I said, he can come to me for a cuddle if he really wants one.
I had a really adventurous day today. Tesco deliver mums shopping every Monday afternoon and today was no different. Usually I watch them from the porch or the front garden, but today I decided to do something different and I jumped into their van for a look around.. then the door shut and the van started to move. Soon, the man opened the door to get the crates out for the next delivery and I popped up my head for a cuddle! He realised where I lived, so after he had delivered this persons shopping he went back to our house and delivered me home. Mum was really embarrassed that they had had to come back to our house, and made their schedule late.. I had a really good adventure though, and was quite happy with myself.
Later this evening a neighbour was talking to mum at the front door and I ran out into the garden for a play. I got bored in the garden and went down the street for a look to see what was happening. I saw an open front door and a house that smelt of cats, so I went in for a look. I made myself quite comfy on their sofa next to the cat of the house. It was quite nice, and I was there for a few minutes, then the lady that had been talking to mum came in the house, I had only gone and made myself at home in her house!! She laughed, picked me up and took me back home.. so today I have been an adventurer cat!
Ozzy has decided that’s about time I learnt to catch and kill mice. This afternoon we were both sat in the back garden as it was quite sunny. He brought a mouse into the garden that was still alive and put it down in front of me. I spent ages playing with it, but I think I killed it out of boredom rather than how a cat SHOULD kill a mouse! He wasn’t impressed with me, but it takes time to learn these things.
This evening I was in the house as it is too cold to go outside in the dark now, and Ozzy was in the garden. It was near bedtime so mum went outside to try and catch him and bring him inside. He had brought a young rat into the garden and it was sat in front of him. As mum went outside, and I was watching from the warmth of the back room, the rat stood on it’s back legs and whacked Ozzy on the nose with the loudest squeak I have ever heard from something so small. Ozzy shot back in surprise and ran straight inside and the rat ran across the garden, up the wall and into the safety of the wood behind the house. We were both very surprised that it turned around and attacked Ozzy, never seen that before.
A man came today with a big briefcase, that I managed to sit in whilst he was talking to mum. He went around the house measuring things, I tried to help him, but I don’t think he was interested in my help. Pah!!!
Later on this afternoon dad came home again, I went for a cuddle this time as I thought maybe I had been really huffy with him last weekend. It was nice to get a quick stroke from him.
Well, they have been watching bike and motor racing all weekend, with a bit of boxing in the mix as well. I feel well and truly left out! Mum has been giving me lots of cuddles, which is always nice!
It is so rainy today, it's pouring down the street in big torrents, it's not nice enough for Ozzy or I to go outside today, so we spent it sleeping in the bed.
A man came today and put a sign up outside our house, it says that it's “For Sale” whatever that means. Then mum spent this morning taking ornaments down in the front room and wrapping them in bubble stuff and putting them in a big box. Well, she put them in the big box, after she got me out of it.. I love sitting in boxes! I was trying to watch what she was doing, but I nearly died of boredom so I went into the garden and played with my ball that is out there. Then I fell asleep in the flowerbed and woke up freezing later in the afternoon…
Dad came back again today – where is he going during the week? Very odd! I have been quite boring over the last few days and not done much at all really.. can't be bothered at the minute!
