A pussy story.

 Oscar knows he is better off indoors while this cold weather is freezing his nuts off, well, it would if he had any. He spends quite a lot of time lounging on the sofa, or up in the spare room where he has a blanket, or right next to me on the desk as I sit at the computer. 

Mayze is a bit miffed because she thinks that is her special place. She doesn't like it when I give Oscar a cuddle, she stares daggers at me. Why are you doing that! 
Oscar is very much a free spirit, and mainly an outdoor cat, but I think he is coming round to the fact that being indoors is rather nice. He gets up, goes over to the food bowls, has a nibble, and goes back to bed. 
More often than not he spends the whole night indoors now. When I go to bed I leave some food out for him and it is always eaten by the next morning. He hears me getting up and stands by the back door waiting to be let out. I have shown him the litter box, scratched around in it hoping that he might realise what it's for, but he does not use it. 
When he wants to come back in he stands on the table outside the back window and peers in. I wave to him and point to the door so he knows that I will open it. Clever cat.
Now going out for a doggy walk.  Thanks for popping in. Catch ya soon. ilona

  1. My cats just like to be where ever I am.They are all laid around the living room at the moment and I do love it when they are all indoors.I have already been for my walk today and posted my nieces birthday card through her front door at the same time.Only about 2 miles but I felt alot better for it.The sun was shining so that was a bonus!xx

  3. Hi Ilona Mayze and Oscar we have the same here Amy and Benny. Amy used to fall out with Benny but all of a sudden has decided she wants comfort and warmth and has relocated to the spare bedroom which is small and very cosy. She comes down for her food and outside only for toileting and back for food and bed and loads of TLC. As for Benny he goes out a bit more but like Amy has got used to enjoying the indoor life with TLC food and comfort. They are both sweet cats who were abandoned and have brought joy into our lives. I am a full time carer of my husband who is disabled and has chronic health problems. I love your blog and inspiration with walks, art work, frugality and like you feel very similar in my outlook on life. We are both similar ages and will 71 next Friday. Thinking of you and send you lots of love keep up the good work and one day hope all this going on will be a distant memory. Love Liz Amy and sweet elderly Ben who is full of love and kisses.xxxxx

    1. He seems to favour the blanket in the spare room for his overnighters, and the sofa for daytime snoozing.

  7. Your cats are lovely 😊. We have a four-year-old black cat named Jackson and a ten-month-old ginger kitten named Pepper. I love all animals but cats are just sooooo incredibly beautiful! Beautiful little demons, 😂! Xx

  8. My kitty spends her day lying under the radiator in the girls room, warmest spot in the house, she's not daft.
