Blackso: "Awwww! I'm so tired!"
Noodles: "Play me a lullaby".
And there's still Ginger, the 'Problem Pussy':-
I suppose Ginger comes here because he gets it easy, with as much to eat as he wants, as well as receiving the ready affection from me which may be lacking in his own home. In addition, being youthful in cat years, he provides high quality entertainment with his antics in taunting, running after and jumping on Blackso and Noodles, both of whom, in their advanced adulthood, are never particularly amused. He's such a little sweetie himself that it's impossible to ignore him, not to say horribly cruel too.
I'm going away for the annual visit to my sister for a few days in a couple of weeks time and have booked my own two for the cattery, but I fear that Ginger will be sitting on the window sill, pawing at the glass and wailing to come in. So what I'll have to do is to ask the chap who lives under me to keep an eye out for him and see that he gets fed occasionally with food and milk which I'll leave for him.
These three have taken over my entire life - but they also help in a big way to make life worthwhile and more tolerable, bless their little furry paws!
