SaBreena, Pearl and I stand at the gate to the House of Fun and look at the side squirrels, these are squirrels that only feed at the side of the house. The Horraces from the main garden walk, belly flat to the ground and semi crawl to the gate, sniffers going ten to the dozen, whiskers quivering. We lay flat too, squeaking and shaking and trying to tell those naughty squirrels they might be lunch. Then, the squirrel will sit high on his backside then leap beside the door frame, clinging on and peeping at us cats below. They are so sneaky and quick but now they tease us quite a lot. Even when we jump at them, they hardly move just flinch a bit. Then up the door and along the cat proofed fencing then push their little faces into the netting where they have snipped a few holes to ready their escape and usually with a piece of slate to boot!
On Wednesday morning, Robyn made her escape when Momma came back from cleaning the outdoor litter trays and that speedy Robyn, who is the size of a squirrel, slipped out of the starting gates like a greyhound and chased a belligerent pugnacious Horrace into the trees. He Gyrated his hips and stuck out his tiny tongue and shouted obscenities at her. Robyn was very pleased with herself and came back eventually when called and praised. he tail was super floofed up and the size of a squirrel's tail. She held it aloft with pride and trotted back yelling in her singular voice all about the chase and how she nearly tasted his butt! Momma laughed and picked her up giving her a cuddle and was rewarded with a tremendous purr and up she went onto Momma's shoulders to double check those pesky Sciurus have left the garden. We know why now squirrels have that genus for a name! Well, they steal all our slate and you can hear ManSlave shout "You can't be serious!" Well, Ok, it's from the Greek, skia and oura, meaning shadow and tail as they love to sit in the shade of that bushy appendage.
This morning ManSlave woke Momma with an Orchid, well I suppose it was better than the pinch and the punch she got 3 days ago on the first of the month. So why and Orchid? Well it's their 23rd Annipurrsary today. Who knew monogamy could last so long! For us cats it wham bam thank you mam and off they go into the wide world to repeat to other poor unsuspecting queens. I didn't like that bit of the relationship. I cried and mewled that I didn't want to do it and pushed my butt to the floor. I conceived Tyga and Freya with a cheap shot! Flaire always enjoys her time with the boys and turns her trips into sweet canoodlings. Momma is waiting for Ikon to do his thing again soon. We are in no rush, the break is nice and relaxing and there are so many babies about at the moment anyway. Sabreena, by age , should be next. It was her first birthday on Thursday so she is growing nicely and overtaken Robyn who has a few months yet to get the right weight and size. So no kittens at the moment. We are still twiddling our thumbs.
With it being an Annifurrsary, that means a good bit of meat. Today is a Tomahawk Beef steak cooked like a roast and we get the bone once it is all cooked up. It's the very best bit, the rib eye and is rather lush in my opinion. It won't take long to cook so i best get a jiggle on and get to the stove before Ikon who will eat the majority of the trimmings before anyone else gets a taste.
Have a super Sunday and we hope next week there will be less of the wet stuff for everyone.
Your Queen Vee =^..^=
