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

Yoga Poses

Stretch the toes right out. Flex the arms and the legs. Ease the neck muscles.

After exhaustive efforts at supervising the human, I retire to my exercise post and carry out my routine.

Is it more noble to stay at home?

I think Lynettea will not be able to cope if I leave to satisfy my ambition to climb mountains. Looking back through the blog I see that Diamond also had ambitions but sacrificed himself.
He wanted to be a movie director in Hollywood   but only got as far as sitting in a director's chair.
We cats have so many duties!
I am trying to satisfy my climbing urge by leaping around here.
But it isn't the same thing.  It really isn't!
I get onto the cupboard by springing to the top of the door, then turning around and walking across the narrow ledge of the door frame.
Lynetta hates me doing this.  She really freaks out.

A shocking noise

I have been up since 4am with a shocking noise. Lynettea said it was a faulty smoke alarm, but she didn't know what to do. I stayed outside part of the time, but it was cold. Sometimes the alarm switched off for a while and then it started again.
At 7am Lynettea rang the electrical service. The man in charge had just got into the office and he told her to get a broom handle and poke the alarm. It is a very high ceiling and she could hardly reach it with a long rod that was longer than a broom.
The alarm stopped.
That was really good.
I never realized how much I liked silence. The electrician came at 10am. The alarm sounded several times before that, but Lynettea poked it with the pole and forced it to be quiet.
I stayed outside under my bus seat while the electrician disconnected the alarm. We have new ones already that are connected to the fire service, so we didn't want this old alarm.
Then I took Lynettea out for a walkies to check all the fence boundaries in case I had to jump over and call for help. Then I checked all the rooms thoroughly.
This is all very tiring.
I need a rest and a completely unstressed week to follow.

My future career

I think I might want to be a mountaineer. But Lynettea says she needs me here.
Sometimes I wonder why I always have to take her on the lead when I go outside. It isn't always convenient. But I think it makes her feel safer if I am there to look after her.
She doesn't have a good head for heights, so I would have to leave her at home if I start mountain climbing. I am sure she will beg me not to go.
I will have to be very resolute.

me listening to rainforest sounds and giving the toys a workout

I put what I want in the title. I played for a bit with my toys, but now I have gone outside. A cat must do what a cat must do. I seem to be solely responsible for guard duty.
The pictures are dark as it is dark in here.

The legend of the cat bushes

Because I have had a bad time with her not paying me the attention I deserve, not even letting me use the healing paws and staying in bed and not letting me in...
'Wait a minute, Sasha! Yesterday you slept on the bed all day and I had to rug up on the lounge!'
Well it was all very bad and I don't like to hear you coughing...
So, to continue my story.
Lynettea was massaging me and removing my winter fluffs, when she told me a story about my ancestors' home in Russia. The beautiful wild Russian cats, when the spring turns to summer, rub themselves on bushes which have evolved to capture their loose furs. Imagine the soft furs looking like grey mist in the fields.

I think she made this up.

Everyday Activities

Lynettea took some photos of my morning activities, so I thought I would put them on line before we go out. I hope to take her for her walkies in a few minutes.
So when are we going to go outside?

The weather is fine. I am ready to go.

Breakfast was tasty but I am looking for a lizard.

The last of my food demolished. She needs to put down some more.

We had a short but very noisy thunderstorm.  I sat near her so she could hold me and feel safe.
