Ablutions ....

I jumped in the bath to finish off my morning ablutions.
It was quite nice relaxing in there.
No water, shampoo or bubble bath involved.
Just some pleasant ambient lighting.
In fact, I have been having a bit of a love affair with the bathroom in general over the last couple of days.
I have practically glued my self to the floor (maybe cooling off on the tiles?).
Also, it holds the water bucket, my normal water bowl as well as my poo/wee tray.

Medicated and Happy ....

Well, after my trip to the hospital yesterday, I now have a few additions to my medication schedule.
The doses may be tweaked after the results of my blood & urine tests.
If you are new to my blog, you may not know I have existing thyroid and kidney problems, and now added to this some respiratory issues as well.
Plus I'm a bit of an old man.

However, all the pills are making me feel much better.
I love medical science.
Purrrr (snort) Purrrr.

Under The Weather ....

I'm feeling a little poorly today.
My nose is almost completely blocked up and I'm snorting and squeaking.
I have been drinking buckets of water too.
My humans are quite worried, so I'm taking a trip to Lort Smith Animal Hospital shortly.

Missing Some Sky ....

About 6 months ago, a  building started going up a block away.

It has gone up so fast!
And it's not finished yet.
In about a year I think I'll have about 5000 new neighbours.
I wonder how many will be feline?

Geography Study Time ....

One of my favourite things to do: lye on my 'map of the world' desk and study all the countries.
There are so many places I haven't visited.
And probably never will.  
But I can be here and dream about them all day long.
So that's what I do.

So Not Impressed ....

One of my humans is playing behind my back.
He thinks he's being funny.
But I'm not laughing.

Familiar Sounds ....

Here I am, waiting to hear if something is going to happen.
One of my humans is in the kitchen and I'm keeping an ear out for the following sounds:
1:  Food cupboard door, (followed by a can opening. kinda self explanitory).
2:  Fridge door, (followed by the cutlery drawer which means the possibility of an already opened can or yummy yoghurt treat)
3:  Special Treat cupboard door, (which means, hopefully, yoghurt balls for me!!)

Special Treat cupboard!! 
Yay yoghurt balls!!

That Sweet Aroma ....

Some like the smell of fresh coffee.
Some like newly baked bread.
Chocolate, Popcorn, Cigars - these smells all have admirers.
Me - I love the smell of bleach.  There's nothing like it.
I'll sniff it out anywhere.
And I love a clean floor.

Vicarious Embarrassment ....

The very uncomfortable sympathetic feeling experienced while you watch someone else embarrassing themselves. This feeling is often intensified when the person embarrassing themselves is not aware of how embarrassing their behaviour is. In this case it is more like you are feeling the embarrassment on their behalf.

I feel embarrassed for this guy.

Just as embarrassing as being caught with flatulence. 
In fact, the dog on the left looks like he just farted as well!

In my opinion, this group crosses the line from embarrassment to shame.

Protective Colouring ....

Here I am blending in to my environment.
According to the dictionary:  "The most widespread form of protective colouration is called cryptic resemblance, in which various effects that supplement the similarity of colour between the animal and its surroundings enable the creature to blend into the background of its habitat."
That's me, here.

Twist and Pout ....

If this pose seems vaguely familiar, it may be because I'm doing the 'over the shoulder' look.
A lot of famous actresses use this pose because "it's a statement pose and flaunts your back, bum and shoulders. It draws attention to detail of your gown if it's backless or really ornate."
I think it works for me too.
Even though I'm in the nuddie.

Uncontrollable Urges ....

It appears I have an addiction.
To succulents.
I cannot and will not stop chewing and eating them, and no one can make me.
They taste GOOD!!!
Note the carnage in the above photo.
At some point I'll organise a slideshow of similar carnage to the other plants.
My humans say I'm just being naughty, but I think it is more than that.
One day I may end up on the street, doing anything for my next hit of cactus.

Left over chewed bits.

Memory Lapse ....

I guess I'm no different from anyone.
As I'm getting older, from time to time I seem to suffer from temporary memory lapses.
In this particular instance I appear to have forgotten how to use my cat door.
I know it will come back to me eventually.
So I'll stay here and think it over until it does.
(Even as a kitten I found the concept slightly bewildering.  My humans had to prop the flap open with a chop-stick.  Maybe I'm regressing to kittenhood and it's chop-stick time again ...)

Basking Pot Plant Style ....

You may or may not be aware that I accidentally killed off the balcony strawberry plants with my particularly astringent urine.
As I warmed to the task of turning the whole planter into an outside convenience, so my humans tried to stop me and protect the area by:
1: Giving me an alternative tray to use, complete with umbrella covering against the cold winter rain.
2:  Covering the planter containing the Strawberry plants with shade cloth.
As you can see, their planning has not been effective.
Whilst I no longer use the planter as a depository, it has now become my favourite place to sunbathe.
I simply move myself on top of the shade cloth, and my body fits in perfectly like it was made for it.
Humans 0. Me 10.

Pig in Boots ....

I know, I know, it's meant to be all about me.
But I just wanted to show you this pig.
I'd love to give him a head-butt.
(In a friendly, affectionate way).  
I wouldn't mind some boots like this either.
They could come in handy if it rains here on the weekend.

Artsy & Craftsy ....

This little dude and his puppies are all made of ..
Amazing stuff.

And how about this Combi - Cake.

But this floral sandwich really looks good enough to eat.
I'm getting a bit peckish just looking at it!
What's for dinner.
