Bathroom Renovations ....

In an effort to save the strawberries, I now have an outside bathroom.
Fully air-conditioned, and mostly private.
After initially turning into a quagmire in the rain, it is now roofed.
Dry in winter, shady in summer.
What more could your average cat want?
(I realise I'm not just your average cat - it really is pretty spesh.)

Winter Coat ....

Looking pretty good with my winter coat growing in a treat.
Even with my tongue sticking out I feel quite debonair ;)

Happy Face ....

This toy-on-a-stick's happy face says it all.
Go Sainters, go Sainters, go Sainters !!!
Well done team ;)

In Control ....

I have the remote controls completely under control.
Recently I have become addicted to 'Pawn Stars'.
And I find 'Storage Wars' very educational.
However I'm getting out all the bells & whistles for the brilliant
'Eurovision Song Contest' - (Semi-finals tonight).
Go Moldova!!

(here's their entry from last year)
Zdob si Zdub of Moldova performs the song <i>So Lucky</i> during rehearsals for the the Eurovision Song Contest.

Looking good, hey!!

Flying the Jolly Roger ....

Looking to the left ....

Looking to the right ....

OK, the coast is clear.
Time to put on my Pirate outfit.
I even have an eye patch.
Arrrrr me hearties, it's time to swab the decks.

Look, No Hands ....

Yes, all four paws have mysteriously disappeared ...
Sometimes I like to tuck myself in and keep myself tidy.
This is one of those times.

When I Grow Up ....

I wanna be a Cowboy!!!!
The Stetson is on standby.
(A little re-sizing may be required.)

AFL Round 8 ....

I am looking forward to the game this afternoon.
The Saints are playing West Coast out West.
I am hoping for a win.  
The cap says 'Be The Future'.
I am looking into the future and seeing a very tough game.

Recycling ....

This is my friend, Foxy Lady.

When my whiskers occasionally fall out, they are recycled for her use.
Mine are the white ones.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - I feel I am playing my part in reducing landfill.

Ankle Flex Demonstration ....

One of my humans fractured an ankle about six weeks ago.
Today the physio gave her some exercises to do to start getting it moving again.
Here I am demonstrating the ankle flex and towel gather at the same time!
(Yes, one involves having your foot flat on the floor, and scrunching the towel up under your toes).
I can do it with my eyes shut.

Nice Win ....

Great to see the Saints victorious on Monday night against Carlton.
This flag says it all - YEAH!!!

AFL Round 7 ....

Crazy - we're playing on a Monday night!!
What are those boffins at the AFL thinking?
Luckily I'm all rugged up for the game.
Its rainy and coooold in Melbourne tonight!
We have a good record against Carlton, so I'm hoping for a win.

Hypnotism ....

Look into my eyes, look into my eyes ...
Now make your way to the cupboard to get a fresh can of cat food.
Select the Cod & Shrimp.
Open the can.
Place the contents into my bowl.
Walk away.

Kinky & I ....

This is my Kinky Friedman doll.
He says all kinds of non politically correct, funny things, holds a cigar & his hat comes off too!
What more could you want with a Kinky doll than that.
(One of my humans entered the above photo in a competition to win a new Kinky sticker...
and guess what!  We won!!!  Can't wait to get it!!!)

I've also read several of his books.

Here he is, displaying them to advantage.

Chilli Plant ....

Check out the chilli plant ... It is blooming!
They are super hot, a Thai variety.
I can taste them already.

Grooming # 2 ....

I may look serene, but I'm feeling a bit twitchy...

I'm getting it!  Twitch begone!

Ahhhh the relief.... Now I can nap in peace.

Hanging Out the Washing ....

Well, it was another day of housework for me today.
I'm not that good with pegs, but do what I can to help.
In this case I found it best to get in amongst it.
I think my efforts to help were appreciated.
And was pretty cosy in the washing basket I must say.

Hug ....

This was too sweet to resist.
(I hope the kitten survives the 'mother love')

Grooming # 1 ....

I had a visitor on Friday night, and it was great to see J, (as always).
As previously mentioned, I have been over-grooming myself lately. 
So this was a great opportunity to give myself a break, and I concentrated on J instead.
By the time J went home, she was very neat and tidy indeed :)

AFL Round 6 ....

It's a little rainy and cold in Melbourne today.
I'm gonna need my scarf for the match against the Hawks tonight.
The Saints are not favourites to win the match, but I am confident the boys will do well, and hopefully have a win and upset the tipsters.
Especially since coach Scott Watters appears to have listened to my game plan improvement suggestions.

Body Language ....

The Arm-Cross:  
This is a self-comforting posture used mostly unconsciously to alleviate nervous tension.  
The arm-cross is not recommended during a job interview.

The Wink:
A single wink is usually a friendly gesture implying a degree of solidarity and/or intimacy.
Also not recommended during a job interview.
Luckily I'm a self-employed house-sitter.

My Giant Cat-Flap ....

I view the lounge room window as one big cat flap.
On a nice day, this is the only way to enter or exit the flat.
I can spy on any feathered visitors extremely well from here too.
