I have been ever so adventurous this week, and I have discovered some
purr-fectly glorious places to climb. First of all, although it's great fun to sit on Mummy's clean laundry, I find it's even more fun to pull myself up onto the laundry line and sit there before the laundry dries:
Mummy got a bit upset about that, and told me to get down and find some place else so I ran into the kitchen and discovered a Truly Purr-fect Place, where my Human can't possibly follow. It's right on top of the highest of the kitchen cupboards. It's my Mount Effurest!
Of course, when the weather is nice and sunny, as it was for most of the week, it's better to be out of doors, especially if there's a birdie chirping cheekily away right outside the window, almost as if it were taunting Me, knowing I'm trapped indoors and can't get at it. Naturally, I tried to haul myself up, but the kitchen window doesn't have a proper window-sill, so I had to just hang on there as long as I could:
Mummy gave me a special Treat this week. She planted some grass just for Me. She has been growing it, secretly, in the bathroom,
so I couldn't get at it so as to keep it a secret till it was fully grown and surprise Me. Today she gave it to Me. Well, as you can imagine, Kitties, since she's always trying to keep Me away from the houseplants, I was suspicious at first. You know what they say: Beware of Greeks Humans bearing gifts. But I couldn't resist for long. It had such a lovely, fresh, grassy scent. (Mummy says to tell you all that it isn't the kind of grass you can get high on. I don't quite understand what that means. Can somebody please explain?) Anyway, as soon as I was sure it wasn't some kind of Devious Trap, I went and lay on it and squashed it all flat and then I started pulling it up by the roots and getting earth all over the place. Mummy did not look happy, but she didn't say anything, just tried to put the earth back. Then I nibbled some of it - quite a lot of it, actually. It was nice. Mummy says not to finish it all off in one go, it takes time to grow.
Wasn't she a thoughtful Mummy? I love her very much. And you can see how much she loves me, can't you?
Well, that's all my news for now. I wish you all a lovely weekend!
