Midnight. I hear rain on the tin roof. It hasn't rained for a long time. I bolt into the bathroom and instead of pulling the towels to the floor, I spring on the washbasin, leap onto the top of the shower screen and then tumble down into the shower. Trapped? NO. I rush at the glass door and thrust it open, nearly sending Lynettea flying.
'Are you hurt, Sasha?' she says. But she can see I am not.
I bound past her and then rush up and down the hall, arching my back and springing along, my tail curled up.
I feel so alive.

wRITERS gROUP

Lynettea took some of my recent posts to her writers group. She said, 'it will do you good to get some feedback, Sasha. It will help you improve your writing style.'
When she got back home, late, after she had filled my bowls with my special gravy chunks in one bowl and my crispies in another bowl, we looked at the comments together.
No-one had written on the pages! I was so disappointed.
'But they all laughed,' said Lynettea.
And she thought that was good!!!
I felt rather humiliated for her, as I feel she could not bear to admit she was reading my work and had passed it off as her own. Are all humans so uncaring and cruel, I wonder?

Let there be light and power

This morning I was sitting on my sundeck, high up in my enclosure, when I heard some banging. The electrician had arrived to replace our switchboard. I felt nervous, so stayed put. I couldn't concentrate on what I was thinking about, my life alone without parents or siblings. (that means brofurs and sisfurs). Is Lynettea enough of a substitute?
Lynettea says my mother would not have wanted to keep me, as she didn't have enough space. Well if she didn't have enough space, then why did she have me at all?
'Please do not feel unwanted,' said Lynettea. 'I want you.'
The electrician was very busy at the switchboard all day and then he came in to test the safety switches. I had gone into the house for a rest, but I ran straight to the highest and furthest of my perching places when he came in.

my Earth Day post

Happy Earth Day fellow kitties. It must be Water Day as well because Lynettea just splashed some water at me when I was standing on the sink. Sometimes I think she doesn't want me up there. I like looking at the dishes to see if there is any food.. What can I say about Earth Day?
As I am still a junior cat (not a  kitten), I haven't travelled widely and my reading is not perfect. I know there is day and night and sometimes I watch the moon and wonder what it is, or a plane flying overhead and wonder where it is going. 
I see the birds and the insects and sometimes another cat or a dog or the fish. I like flowers and sometimes I might eat one.
That must be nature. 
I don't want it too be too hot or cold. It was too hot here in summer. We nearly expired.
I wouldn't want all the people and plants and animals to vanish. I would miss them.
So let's look after everything and each other.
End of Earth Day post.

cockatoos

The cockatoos have just flown past, heading for the hills. There seem to be more of them every day. They fly over our house in a big flock, screeching, just before it is dark. Lynettea came rushing out to see them and we noticed it was 6:05 pm.
 I was outside in my enclosure thinking about things. I was wondering why my real mummy sent me to someone so hard to train..

my real mummy

I want Lynettea to find a picture of my real mother. She says she took a photo of my mummy and me when I was just a little ball of fluff. I want to find out why my mummy let Lynettea take me away. Was it just for the money?

my natural mother

I wonder what my birth mother looks like and wonder if I shall ever see her. Would she still remember me?
Lynette says not to worry, as she is very happy to look after me.
But somehow i feel insecure. What if Lynettea was to get tired of me?

adopted

Lynettea asked me if I found out I was adopted, would I mind very much.

mummy

I looked up mummy on the internet and was wondering why mine doesn't have any fur. Am I adopted?

walkies

I am just about to go outside for a property inspection.
It is cool and cloudy and the turtledoves are cooing. Probably one of them is a chick that grew up in the grapevine this year. Some sparrows too are twittering. Another few bites of my  crisps. I am staring out the window already, but that isn't enough. Let's be off. I have to get Lynettea on the halter first.

And now I get to promote the blog?

Lynettea still hasn't helped me to make any personal posts on my blog. And now I get to promote a new blog. She says I can help her with The Norwood Cork Tree blog The Norwood Cork Tree

I thought we had finished with that campaign, but no. The tree is saved for now, but she worries all the time that Coles may appeal to the ERD Court or that they may devise a new sinister plan to lodge that will dispose of the cork tree. It is a bit like living in the Land of Oz and fighting one of the witches after another (I think).
I would prefer to contemplate the rainbow or the sunset, where there may be moths flying around for me to swat at.
I went for my walk this morning. Lynettea had to stop me running after two small dogs. They were not together, even I would hesitate to run after two dogs. We followed one down the street a short way and then I saw a dangerous looking baby human in a stroller, so took Lynettea inside for her own good. She is more wary of dogs. Small humans are completely unreliable and how do I know what a baby will do next. Lynettea said it was strapped in the stroller and can't hurt me.
