It's far too early for selfies !

Is that me ??

No way to unfold Kim for a selfie.  So this is her selfie for the week !

I have been on holidays in Ireland where I made a trip by coach around the whole island; It was very nice. I wrote about on my main blog Writer's Cramps

And while I was away my cats were spoilt by Mr. G. The result was when I got out of the car in the evening no cat was there, except Arthur, but this is nothing special because he always comes from nowhere to check out who is coming. When he saw me, he briefly looked at me and disappeared again. What a welcome.

Rosie wasn't even upset as she normally is when I am away, no she was as usual as if I had never been away for 10 days. She slept between and on the cables as if she wanted to be connected to I don't know what, probably for energy saving.

and as usual my legs have to support her little head when we watch TV.

Arthur became a stalker. Ever since he discovered that he could watch over us from outside, he sits there on the window sill and looks inside. He does it every day at the same hour, except when it is raining. I wonder if he has a watch hidden in the garden.

but he also likes to take a sunbath inside with us. We of course sit on the sofas and not on the the floor.

Kim has become Mr. G's follower. When in the past she ignored all humans and ran away, slept outside and came only in for food, now that she is nearly 18, she has changed. I am still not allowed to pet her, but Mr. G. can do with her what he wants ! Even brush her belly, which is a real miracle.
When the evening approaches she sits there on the sofa on his place and waits that he arrives. Then she would meow in a soft voice until he has settled down and she immediately climbs on his lap.

Since Pookie is gone, she sleeps on the carpets where Pookie had slept in her last months. I wonder if she misses her.



It's quite a while that I haven't given news of my cats. First I was on holidays, then I had a lazy phase, then my little Pookie went to the rainbow bridge, she wasn't ill, she just was old 19 years and died peacefully at home with the help of our vet. The last two days she became more and more weak and one morning I saw that she had enough. I was happy to be able to help her going away forever after a happy life.

These are some of the last pictures, in the last week of her life she had become very skinny but still ate like a horse !

For a while I couldn't write about my cat family. Now they are three. But not the youngest once either. Kim is 18, Arthur 15 and little Rosie 10 ! Time goes by so fast !

It was very hot and Arthur needed a helping hand to keep up his head for a selfie !!

Rosie wanted to be scratched while taking the selfie

Only Kim was a good girl and looked proud in the camera while pushing the  button with her paw !



For a change this time she decided that we have to do close ups !

I, Pookie am a little sleepy

Rosie wants to show her beautiful eyes

Arthur probably thinks what to eat next

and Kim just makes big eyes


 As the weather was rather cold this week, I got the impression to live in a dormitory !  Wherever I looked there was a cat laying around, waiting for warmer times.


Rosie during the day

and during the evening on my lap

and with Mr. G.

Arthur first slept on the radiator, then it became to hot, so he jumped down and settled on the carpet and continued his nap.

These are the last pictures I have from my cats before going on a 10 day holiday to Egypt, to get some sunshine !

My "second" residence ! I have been there already 9 times !

Mr.G.will spoil the cats during this time, they are always happy when I go away, because then they can do what they want !



Nooo ! I told you I have first to go to the dentist !

My eyes are perfect, on this selfie, My new make up does its effect

Yesssss ! I don't need any facelifting yet !

Couldn't you wait ??? Now I also washed the tablet !



When Arthur has nothing important to do outside, he watches over us inside. He is a very busy cat.

Often he watches over Mr. G. when he is shaving and at the same time admires himself. Only he doesn't see in a mirror. It's strange, there are cats who can see themselves in a mirror and start to fight and hiss, while others are just starring against a wall and don't move, which is the case of Arthur and all my cats.

Arthur has discovered his love for Kim, she is the only one who doesn't bother him. Rosie tries to catch his tail and wants to play and Pookie hisses because she wants to be left in peace at her old age !

And then the sun was shining and the Arthur took a sunbath !

While Rosie checked in the hedge if there was something to catch

and then they both rested on the terrace

and while I watch Television, Rosie watches me and fell asleep !
What a life !



Too bad ! I closed my eyes !

How is that possible ? the thing went off while I did my Yoga !!

Hey Arthur move !!! I make a selfie, why are you sleeping on the tablet ??

Very good ! This selfie shows the mood I am in today !!



Pookie the old lady has rediscovered her bed since the cleaning lady had put it besides the radiator in front of the window. So she has a nice place to watch what is going on outside.

It was my turn to receive our Scrabble group and Arthur is delighted. He loves when there are visitors and came immediately to sniff at them and say hello.

I had bought a roasted chicken on the market and as soon as I came home had taken it out from the bag and put it in the microwave. But apparently the smell remained in the bag and Arthur worked for half an hour trying to find at least a little chicken piece, he got it then in the evening.

Kim and Pookie like to sleep together on the sofa, Kim always waits for Mr. G. to sit down !

The sun was shining and Arthur took his first sunbath, or maybe the second or the third ...

Rosie looked for mousies in the hedge but couldn't find any gave up and came out.

and then they were enjoying the outside life !

After supper Arthur had a full belly, but had still checked if there was nothing left on the plate !

What a nice day says Rosie and stretches to full length !
