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

Cool Night

For the first time in months, we had a cool night and I slept in my cosy.

Saturday, February 18, 2017


Lynettea claimed I was disrupting her from getting her meal, by jumping on the counter, so she shut the kitchen door, with me on the outside.
But I forgave her.
When she opened the door, I showed her how tolerant I am by jumping in the sink five times in a row.
Few humans would be as tolerant of bad behaviour as we kitties.

No. It is not Cute Photo Time

No. I will not stay in the wardrobe and have my dear little face photographed peeking out between clothes.
Yes. I want to bolt down the corridor and swipe at everything that hangs or flutters.
No. Don't tap into that phone.
Yes. I want my feeding station refilled.
At once!

Languages and Cats

Cats from many different countries visit my blog. Lynettea was concerned that when I had cat visitors to my birthday party, they might not be able to understand one another.
I was surprised at this. She has a lot of difficulty understanding me and cannot understand the language of humans from other countries (except for a few).
On the other hand, cats from anywhere can understand one another. You don't find a Chinese kitty unable to communicate with a  French kitty, or a kitty from USA being unable to understand a kitty from Russia, or Germany. Humans could learn a lot from us if they wanted to.

Under the Palm Tree

Here I am in my cane igloo under my palm tree on a sunny, but still mild morning.
It isn't a very big palm tree, but restful to have it nearby, as it reminds me of nature.
My birdbath is just beyond the trellis in the garden. Some birds may dart down for a splash in the water.
Tranquil and peaceful.
I can hear the fountain as the water falls from the mouth of the dragon into the pond. How would you describe that sound? I might drift off to sleep thinking of it . . .

Thanks for coming to my Birthday Party

Lynettea says I should put a special post to thank all the kitties who came to my Fourth Birthday Party.


She said it was a little difficult to cope with the numbers of cats that arrived, and we could not have managed if they had not been virtual visitors. I am not sure what virtual visitors means. I did not count them, but Lynettea tells me that a total of 547 virtual kitties were running through the house during the day and evening.
I took some of them on a rat hunt down the side of the house. Lynettea had a bunch of party style decorated halters, but she found it difficult to follow us, especially when I led them under the crab-apple tree and into the Westringia bushes. I am not allowed to go there, because Lynettea says she can't crouch down far enough, but as it was a party, she allowed us to have elastic extension leads, so we could go farther than usual.
But we were not allowed to catch any rats, even though we could smell the creatures on the ground and on the fence palings. I was also told not to bring back any lizard tails, moths, butterflies, grasshoppers etc etc. But everyone enjoyed sniffing for them.
After that we went under the grape vine and played in my catnip plantation. I don't bother with the scent, but many of the kitties found it VERY EXCITING.
