Home comforts in cat heaven

Hello. My workspace is shrinking, this is the new en suite accommodation for my old boy Bugsy. The bedroom is situated next to the computer with hardly any room for my keyboard. He doesn't seem to want to go into the window sill any more, preferring the soft cushion topped with a towel. 
He can almost have breakfast in bed, the food tray is quite close. At the other end of the corridor is the latrine. Any soiled material has to be removed periodically to control stinky smells drifting in my direction. Wee's aren't so bad but poo's need to be disposed of immediately. 
I feel I am being pushed out, but if this keeps him happy then who am I to complain, I am only the servant, ha ha.

My lunch has filled my tum. Very tasty soup made with half a carrot, a chunk of butternut squash, one potato, pieces of broccoli, sprinkling of grated cheese, and spices. Bloomin lovely.

Tis very windy today, I went out with the shears and chopped off the tops of the grass sprouting out from between the paving slabs on the drive. The wind whisked up the cuttings and blew it all away across the road.

Have been for a coffee with my friend Irene this morning. She is preparing to move back home to Edinburgh, probably not until Christmas, but they have a lot of stuff to get rid of because they are downsizing. I told her that if she puts anything in a skip, I will come and take it out, ha ha.

Anyway, I'll sign off. I'm off to the Docs shortly, that ugly wart on my cheek has come back. I really don't want to be walking around with a scabby face. Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.

  1. Bugsy looks content - it's the price we pay being pet-owners and therefore serfs; my little dog hogs the bed and is always fed first in the mornings, but wouldn't have it any other way. Hope ok at the doctor's: perhaps they'll freeze it and it will disintegrate (did this with me and a blemish on my leg successfully). Weedkiller - try this: in a spray bottle mix a couple of squirts of washing up liquid, then half and half water and bleach, worked a treat on my patio slabs. Amanda

  2. Love the Bugsy pictures. Natalie

  3. White vinegar poured on straight will kill that grass between the pavers.

  4. It's nice to know there are other people who put their pet's needs first! I love the latest picture of dear Rocky. SueM

  5. That soup does sound tasty. I don't have any room in my freezer at the moment otherwise I would make a batch and freeze it. Windfall apples are keeping me really busy

  6. Hullo!! I am currently brushing my teeth with a kids brush.....what a flippin brilliant Idea!!! FANX, MeanQueen!!!!
