Curious Human Behaviour

I must confide in you kitties that I am quite concerned about Lynettea’s diet. She is always chomping away at vegetables, which we all know are not very nourishing. Sometimes I wonder if she is sacrificing herself for me and giving me all the best delicacies, although I don’t think that is very likely.

Tonight she came home just before dark and then sat talking to one of her friends on the phone for a long time. I was meowing at her for quite a while before she paid me the attention I deserve. She is not very quick on the uptake. I took her for her walk and then let her serve me dinner. After she ate some of her usual vegetables, she turned on the television and sat down on the lounge to watch Midsomer Murders. This is a rather boring program, which hardly ever features cats, so I went to sleep on my pure wool mat next to her.

When Midsomer Murders finished she stood up and said, ‘Why did you leave your little Mousie there Diamond?’ and then, ‘Ugh, it’s a real rat and I was sitting on it!’
Not a word of thanks, I noticed. Even then, she made no effort at all to eat it.

This is me sniffing for rats in the garden. The rats ate some of the vegetables and all the grapes, so Lynettea should be grateful to me for catching one of them. The rats are now eating the quinces, but they are running up in the branches, so I haven't managed to get any of them.

Yes humans can be curiously unappreciative of our efforts.. sigh.

Our Sebastian loves fruit. Especially watermelon. It's weird, he always sniffs it and licks it. He doesn't like veggies though.

We don't know about vegetables. We like asparagus, peas and many other vegs.

Well, actually Cliff likes asparagus almost as much as ham - but don't tell anyone.

Your garden looks beautiful.

We hope this works as we have posted a comment a couple of times in the past, and it comes back as undeliverable. Anyway, it is a good thing your bean has you to help her out. You are doing a great job of looking over your garden as it looks fabulous.

Your Mom sat on a dead rat and didn't notice it until her program was over? That must have been some fascinating program! Good for you for catching the rat who is eating her fruits and vegetables!

Dear Diamond,

This is very comfy spot for you, I can see you are doing great job watching your field.

By the way, Michico and Arion will go to honeymoon, do you know where? The Gold Coast of Australia! Just thinking that Michico will stand at the same land with you, I am so happy :)

You did a good job catching that rat Diamond. Lynettea should have shown more gratitude! Without you to guard the garden she'd probably have no fruits or veggies left! :) xxx
