Winter Thoughts

Now the winter evenings are shutting in I like to take Lynettea out on the path for a bit of hunting training. You will wonder why I persevere with this, when she has been so completely untrainable in the past. I am worried about her future though. She is always muttering about global warming (although it is quite cold at the moment) and I fear if things change for the worse and the SUPERMARKET, where she does her clumsy form of hunting, closes, what will she do for food.

I don't think I could feed both of us at my stage of life. I can only climb half way up the grape vine now, even after I have rushed right down the side of the house from the end of the yard as a run up. Lynettea thinks I have either put on too much weight or my legs are too weak because of age.

She bought me a new velvet style blanket in the sales yesterday. It is big enough for both of us to sleep under. I have it draped around me at the moment. No picture yet.
As far as the hunting training goes, no sign of improvement. She thinks she has taught me to sit on command. I sometimes let her think that, as I have a good sense of humour.

My mummy thinks that she has me trained to sit and shake hands. I'm not a DOG!
Thanks for coming by to visit and welcome to the Aussie Kitty Club!
Having lots of pictures is not always a good thing - our mamarazzi never give us any privacy!
Maybe you could teach your mum how to grow food?

Aww Diamond, we can't do stuff like we used to either, but we know you could do it if you has to... but why should you when you gots Lynettea so well trained to hunts for you? I sais enjoy your warm blankie and let the beans do the work.

Keisha said...

Hooray for your new blankie. :)

MOL. Yes, you do have a great sense of humor, Diamond. I had a strong suspicion that Lynettea would not do well with the hunting training when she wouldn't let you back in the kitchen with the rat...

Oh.. you are doing a good thing teaching your human how to hunt, Diamond...

OMC, you sit on command? My SS thinks she is doing well when I come when she calls. Just between you and me, that's because she only calls when there are treats.

Anyway, the purpose of this visit is to welcome you to the Aussie kitty club. I didn't realize there are so many of us.

Come and visit me in my (flooded) garden!

What a wonderful boy you are to think of your mum's well-being. Your new blankie sounds divine!
Your mum is a hunter in her own way: she hunted the sales to find just the perfect blanket for you.

We and our mum say "join the club" when it comes to back legs. Mum took a fall when she was younger and now she has trouble with her knees.
