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

I just had a small child visiting here. He was quiet at first, so I let him touch my soft and pretty furs while I lay quietly. I observed him closely, but preferred to stay on my warmer for a long as cattily possible (as it is winter here). Finally, when he started jumping up and down in an excited manner I had to go. I went and sat on Lynettea's usual chair in the kitchen and busied myself quietly looking at the Japanese language lesson that she had been reading. It didn't mention any cats though, so consequently was rather boring. I am not sure why so many documents that amuse humans do not mention us. Is it a lack of appreciation or just the usual human ignorance?
When the small boy tiptoed out to the kitchen he couldn't see me at first as i stayed quite motionless, hoping he would go away.
Now at last I have returned to my beloved Snugglesafe and hope there will be no further disturbance for this evening. At my age I really need adequate notification of any 'lovely surprise visits'.
My correspondent in Queensland, Sanka, wrote to me recently very briefly enquiring about my health. I am quite worried about Sanka, who apparently has to sleep in a shed at night, so was relieved to hear he is still in the land of the living. Whether we will ever be able to meet in the fur, I don't know. Both of us are getting on in age.

I have met a little person next door once. We kinda just stared at each other for a while. Hope you enjoy the rest of the day on your warm snuggly blanket :)xx

Diamond, we don't have any experience with young humans...and think we prefer to keep it that way! You have our sympathies.

Dear Diamond

Diamond, we think you quite brave to stay in the presence of the small child for as long as you did. We hide no matter what, if visitors are big or small. Our mom tends to read more about dogs, especially dog training. We suppose that is better than cat training... Enjoy relaxing in your Snugglesafe. Purrs for you and your friend Sanka,

We don't like it when we have to visit with children. We have some that live in our apartment complex that come up to the window to say hi, and that is okay, but to be out amongst them - no way. You are much braver than we are.

Sorry to hear you had a young human person visiting, Diamond. They frighten us ... all that jumping and excitedness make us head under the bed. Purrs for you and your friend Sanka!
