I really, really …...

 …. need to know what’s happening over there?


Intrepid! 
Don’t stop me now. I’m on a mission.


 What’s that?


Getting a bit steep now!

 Deliberates


 Thwarted!
Big nasty plant is in my way!


What you looking at?

OK I’m coming to get you... 
Gissa kiss!

Austin decides better the devil you know!

Happy Birthday ML


Ok I have a confession to make. I don’t actually know ML of the Cat Blogosphere!! I know, I know, My head has been in the iCloud too long.  Anyway, just in case there is someone out there who doesn’t know already, ML is celebrating getting older today.

Now Austin and his Real Hous
ecat buddies (see above. Austin is the one in the middle with his tongue hanging out *sigh*) have put together an altogether splendiforious rendition of happy birthday, choreographed, produced and directed by the talented Glogirly. Check out her blog where you can get all the gossip! Oh and BTW the picture (above) is doctored courtesy of the soft hearted, hard nosed
ghetto kitty, Cathy Keisha!


Here, though, straigh
t from You Tube is the soon-to-be award winning video:

A Play - by The Barred of Avon!

Director’s note: This play is enacted every time Tigger the Tabby visits the house and manages to get through the door from the conservatory to the kitchen!

ACT 1 Scene 1 - The Kitchen









Act 1 Scene 2 : The Bedroom




Parenthesis
Director's squeeee moment!


Back to Act 1 Scene 2
Austin regroups and the cast exeunt with thunderous enthusiasm as eight paws and two elderly feet race up the stairs.. (well the elderly feet moved more sedately - the foundations of the house having already been stressed beyond safety guidelines!)
Act 2 Scene 1- The Conclusion in The Conservatory 
the two elderly feet finally catch up with the eight paws: 

Ra Ra Ra Bravo standing ovation
Curtain comes down

The Present

It all started so well. I went to the pet shop, bought the item and took it home so junior nephew could (very kindly) put it together:









Dudaaaaaaah!!

Very nice :)

Trouble is, we then had to introduce Austin to his new scratchpost-lounger-bobbledangle thingy. What a palaver! He ….. 

….. first had to read the instructions ….

…..check the construction did not contravene EU regulations ….

…. run some scratch tests ….

…. tidy up residual detritus ….

 ….. before he's ready…..

…. to move in to the box it came in … !!!!!!

…. much more salubrious ...

However ….


.. later on that day, Austin had a change of heart

… and while he was checking the bobbledangle ..

…and while his back is turned...
CATastrophe!

OK, so back to plan A :)

That, dear friends, is the story of “The Present"

Birthday Boy!


Yep the boy is 5. To be honest we don’t actually know when he was born, but when we went to collect him from the RSPCA all those years ago, they decided May 1st was as good a date as any! So, like the Queen, he has an official birthday :)

Oh and if you can’t quite see what the pressy is, here is a larger picture of the box it came in:


That sweet kitty sitting on the “climb and hide lookout” is not Austin!! The saga of the present opening and inspection by his lordship is for another day .. after I’ve had a long lie down and a few of my prescription meds. I hope that is ok?

Meanwhile, I think there is a beano over at Domino’s (Cat Wisdom 101) as it is also his birthday today :) Catnip and caviar! What more does a cat need? Except maybe salmon ;)
