The Feline Code of Conduct

Always give generously. A small bird or rodent left on the bed tells them, "I care".

Climb your way to the top. That's why the drapes are there.

Curiosity never killed anything except a few hours.

Make your mark in the world. Or at least spray in each corner.

Never sleep alone when you can sleep on someone's face.

Life is hard, then you nap.

Greebo and Taxi

They found the treats I had stashed in my bedroom... And this was the scene I came home to!They were later contentedly lying on the bed together- and as I tried to get a picture of them mirroring each other again- Greebo realised I had a piece of flapjack in my hand!!!

What you May Not Know about CATS

- Cats are smarter than dogs. You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.
- Cats aren't clean, they're just covered with cat spit.
- Cats don't hunt seals. They would if they knew what they were and where to find them. But they don't, so that's all right.
- Cats instinctively know the exact moment their owners will wake up. Then they wake them 10 minutes sooner.
- Cats know what we feel. They don't care, but they know.
- Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want.
- Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.
- Dogs believe they are human. Cats believe they are God.
- I had to get rid of my wife. The cat was allergic!
- Of course cats are smarter than dogs; it takes intelligence to be that devious and cruel!

Taxi's Antics

When I talk to him in that
He has been known to fall right off beds and couches when he gets so
carried away with his rolling around!!!

Greebo & Taxi's Sunday Afternoon

Taxi's favourite snooze spot is on the corner at the foot of the bed. This is also where he sleeps at night.
Today, Greebo discovered my laptop bag, lying at an angle against the bed...
and he lay down with his legs and tunny up against it!
Then when I took the towel off my head and folded it at the foot of the bed he jumped up and came and lay there instead! He just loves folded towels and blankets!

The boys are so happy in their new home...

Taxi's new favourite place is a dining-room windowsill, where he sits with his chin on the lower rung of the burglar proofing staring out of a slightly open window. And he sleeps on the bottom corner of the bed at my feet.

Greebo's favourite place is in front of the TV on top of the TV stand! And he still sleeps with Damien- although he will occasionally cuddle with the Glugs and I...

On Saturday afternoon I was baking cupcakes, and while I was cleaning I opened the back door, forgetting that the boys were downstairs with me. After a few minutes it struck me that I'd left the door open and I went to make sure neither of them were outside before closing it. Taxi was on the brick walkway at the base of the stairs and when I appeared on the steps he looked up at me with a guilty smirk and then zipped past me back into the house. Where he stood on the kitchen floor and looked at me as if to say "What? What'd I do...?"
