Bear and Me

Bear and me, we are just settling down for the night. I am helping bear crawl onto my summer bed, when we are startled by a flashie.
She won't let us alone, even this late in the evening.
Switch off the light! It's bedtime!



YAWN

Doesn't she realize that after breakfast a cat needs some time for quiet reflection?
'Your eyes were shut, Sasha.'
I reflect on the state of the world with my eyes shut. That is the best way. Then I don't get so stressed.
'I thought you were asleep! I was going to take a photo of you peacefully asleep on the bed, before pushing you off so I could make it.'
So now we get the real agenda. Pushing the pet around. Why do human rights always come in front of rights for cats?
'I do love you, Sasha! I really do. But I like to make the bed...'
That's what I mean. What is most important: a tidy house or a comfortable cat?I get the picture.
'Well you can stay for a little while. And then I really have to...'
We'll see.

Taking a Break

As a writer my life is busy. Taking a break, I stretch out on my mock grass and relax.
Lynettea is making a strange noise to attract my attention.
Bother.

welcome to a relative

If this cat is the cat of Lynettea's great niece, what relative is he of mine? Is he my great grand nephew? Nelson lives in Queensland. He has a full coat of fluffy grey furs.
Welcome Nelson!

My inheritance

When Lynettea was grooming me today, she took out my special brush that I inherited from Diamond. He used it for 16 years, so the fronds have all clumped together.  Usually I just use my purple massage brush and the new baby brush that I have had since I was a kitten.
It is special to have inherited a brush.
'Diamond left it for you,' Lynettea told me. 'He wanted you to have it.'
How does she know that, I wonder?

Beetles invade my enclosure

Beetles are flying into my outdoor area. I am trying to catch them. I brought one inside the house and Lynettea took it out. Then another one flew in and disappeared. Where have they come from? Many beetles, all flying and darting.  I will be frantic all night. The life of a guard cat is not easy.

What's that, Bear?

Bear thinks he is helping me, but I don't need advice on how to groom myself.
Now he says he is trying to keep me warm.
I don't know why Lynettea stuck him beside my cosy, as I put him on the floor in the hallway last night. She thinks he is company for me. Is that some peculiar human mindset?
Why would I rely on an inanimate object for company?
Humans are just weird!
A good thing I have my cat blogging kitty friends to keep me sane!
