Read my considered thoughts and opinions.
I am continuing the blog of Diamond, cat sage and haiku poet.

in the bag

Lynettea put 'that' photo of me in the bag while my attention was diverted. Any publicity is good, she thinks.
I don't think Diamond would have been so tolerant. He was a very dignified cat. Maybe I will become more dignified as I grow up. I am feeling quieter today after yesterday's falling incident.

my fall

I have just come in from walkies, where I had a nasty fall. It was warm in the sunshine, so I had sprawled out on the air-conditioning unit at the side of the house.
Lynettea said, 'Don't fall, Sasha.'
She is always saying that. So I took no notice, as usual.
I streeetched out and my furs grew warm. Very comfortable. I stretched out my front legs and also my back legs. I flexed my claws and purred.
Then I rolled to one side more and baked that side and then I rolled to the other side and rolled a bit too far.
Suddenly I found myself between the air conditioning unit and the wall, upside down, with myself wedged tight and my four pawsies sticking up and waving in the air.
Before I had time to miaouw for help, Lynettea was at my side, or rather at my top, peering down anxiously at me. She could see I was wedged tight and unable to turn.
Just as well I had brought her out with me. For once I was grateful she was there. She reached down and managed to get her hands around my shoulders and then haul me up. My furs protected me from scraping against the wall.
She was so helpful that I even stayed sitting quietly and let her chat to a neighbour in the street. Even though the neighbour had a toddler in a stroller.
We were inside the fence, otherwise I could not have tolerated a small child.

this morning

'Sasha, please move your tail, dear.'
'Why should I move my tail?''
'Because I want to press the lever to open the rubbish tidy.'
'If you move your foot under my tail, you will be able to press the lever.'
'Sigh. Alright Sasha. I don't want to inconvenience you in any way.'

ready to go

The sun is shining. We must be off.


Millie's portrait

I have let Millie Robomaid put her portrait on the blog. She is very proud of this portrait, as it shows off her pretty colour.

camellia appreciation

Lynette went to lunch with a friend, who had picked some flowers for me. Here I am checking them out. I licked the flowers all over and they tasted nice and with a pink taste.



wildlife TV My favourite

Tonight, after Lynettea watched a program I found rather boring, we played a recorded wildlife program.
'This is one of your favourites,' she said.
She was surprised when I woke up and watched this section.
