It's Been a Hard Day's Night...

...and I've been working like a d-o-g!
Yes, I have! My Human keeps going out and leaving me on guard and although I have now been promoted to Captain of the Guard, and have delegated responsibility to the ladies of her porcelain doll collection, I still have to supervise them. You can't expect a China Doll to display the same level of alertness as a Fighting Feline, such as Moi!

What makes it especially hard is the heat. My Human says the temperature is above average for July. It makes Me so very, very sleepy. 

So - I sleep with one eye open (most of the time) and allow myself a brief cat nap now and then:

However, at least we've now got rid of those horrid hornets and so we can have all the windows open again, to catch the slightest breeze. 

Anyway, it's the Weekend at last, so I can have some time off from guard duty.
Mummy will be home with me all day and I will get extra Fancy Feast in honour of Shabbat   :-)

Have a lovely weekend, Fellow Felines (and C-a-n-i-n-e-s and Humans too)!

Friday the Fur-teenth

Greetings, Fellow Felines (and C-a-n-i-n-e-s and Humans too)!

It has been Very, Very, Very Hot all week and I am completely exhausticated! To make matters worse, my Human has been closing the bedroom window during the daytime, because we think there is a hornets' nest right outside it. We haven't actually seen the nest but we sure as *&^% have seen the hornets and they look really Big and Mean. My Human says she's going to have to get a Professional in to deal with the problem. In the meanwhile, we are having to rely on the air conditioning. But because of the extreme heat, everyone else is also leaving their air conditioning on and there have been power cuts all over the country. 

Today is my human grandpa's birthday. He is 85 years old. Happy Birthday, Grandpa!!! Speaking of birthdays - thanks to all of you who came to celebrate My Birthday with Me last week. As I mentioned in my previous post, tomorrow would have been Pixie's birthday. I wonder if they celebrate birthdays at the Bridge. I don't suppose they do - because, after all, at the Bridge, nobody gets older, one stays fur-ever young.

The paparazzi were out in full force this past week, and because it was so hot, I didn't have the energy to run and hide from them. All I could do to foil their nefarious schemes was to turn my head just as the shutter clicked. I have a sixth sense which tells me exactly when to do that (heh-heh-heh). Still, even I get caught napping on occasion, as you can see:

Right, I have to go now, Fellow Felines (etc.) and help Mummy prepare tonight's supper. It's very hard work, kitties, having to watch her and supervise and make sure she prepares everything exactly as We like it.

Shabbat Shalom to you all! Have a lovely weekend.
