Vet Visit ....

I had my 3 monthly check up at the vet's yesterday.
I didn't really want to leave my safety zone to get poked and prodded.

Nervously licking my lips.  I know what's going to happen.
I didn't get to see my regular vet Dr Paula as she was in surgery.  
But Dr Tara has seen me before and she is also quite respectful and gentle.    

Curiosity eventually got the better of me.
I tried to keep a keen eye out.
I came out eventually and was nabbed.
Bloods, temperature (ooeer), urine test & blood pressure taken, they put on the cuff & pump it up just like for my humans.
(Needless to say, my blood pressure is usually pretty high by the time they take it.)
Just waiting for the other results to come in.
But all in all, a successful visit I hope.
Paws crossed.

Clothes Supervisor ....

I spent a fair bit of time supervising folding the clothes after they were freshly washed today.
My humans did such a good job & the clothes looked soooo comfy....
I couldn't help myself.  I had to test them out.
Yes.  Just as comfy as they looked.
One pile made a very handy head rest.

Mr Relaxo ....

I took complete advantage of a sunny weekend in Melbourne.
(I know!! What!!)
So I'm basking.
It's actually cold again right now.

Plant Therapy ....

I've been working with this plant for several months.
Sending it good vibes after it was frazzled last summer.
It appears to have taken my soothing, friendly advice on board, and is now pretty much completely recovered.
I don't think my humans are stupid enough to put it outside again this summer. 
It prefers to remain inside, with me.

Finally .... A Lemon's life ....

The lemon is ready.

Sliced open.
Perfectly ripe.  Yay! 

Squeezed and all the juice and zest used.
Not a skerrick was wasted.

And baked.
mmmmm Lemon Pie.
I liked it very much.
Hopefully Lemmy the Lemon Tree will have more than one success story next year!

Favourite Blanky ....

After a few warm days it's cold again!
This is my favourite blanket to snuggle down in.
(One of my humans also likes it a lot, so it can be hard to get all to myself).
I like to make a nest in it.

It Wasn't Me ....

How could you accuse me of taking these lemons out of the bowl?
I wasn't trying to get anyone's attention at all.
I'm just sitting here being good.
All the time.
This is the face of an innocent cat.
(Or maybe I just feel like a Margarita).

On the Road ....

One of my humans will be on the road for a few days.
They will be assisting another human to demonstrate some amazing floral art in Adelaide.
I've asked for some photos, so stay tuned.
I'm quite excited.

Making an Impression ....

Recently a location scout from a movie currently being made in Melbourne met with one of my humans.
They were interested in my balcony, and the possibility of the view to the lane way below.
(They will be filming in the lane way later this month).
I thought it was my opportunity to make an impression and maybe get in the film.
I did get a pat when I came out of the bathroom to say hi!
I wonder if this could be my big break for fame.
You never know.
Paws crossed.

Couch Position ....

Sometimes I let my humans 'warm up' a spot on the couch.
Then when they get up I take it.
(And I don't intend to give it back easily).
They can find somewhere else to sit.

Peg - Leg ....

My right front leg has gone AWOL!
This has surprised and confounded me.
Please let me know if you find it.

And The Winner Is ....

Also, Happy Birthday to you!
The 'Below The Radar' AFL Super Coach winner in the 'Total Crap' League.
The trophy has been updated accordingly.
*note that Ratso Eats Chilli came in at second place.

Snoring ....

Snoring with my eyes open.
Sometimes I do this and it freaks out my humans.
I'm still a bit congested, but maybe it's hay fever.
Spring has sprung.

The Record Player ....

One of my humans scored this awesome record player for a birthday!
It came with the cute table which holds records underneath.
It has been getting lots of use ;)

These are some of my personal favourites.
(Hunters & Collectors, Paul Kelly & the Smiths).
My taste appears to be stuck in the 80's.

AFL Round 23 ....

Well folks, it's the final game of the season for St Kilda.
We didn't make the 8, (and therefore the finals).
However I must say I am very happy with all the new young talent on the team this season.
Hopefully we will win today and remain ensconced in 9th position for the year.
And Saints for premiers in 2013!!!!

Toasted ....

It's been cold here the last few nights.
I like to stay toasty by getting as close to the heater as possible.

Half n half.
