Finally hoomins seems to realise how important we really are...

Here I’m in my new comfy spot which I’m not going to share with Tolkien...
 

So here we are again, another week has started and things seem to be getting better and better. You see I’ve always believed that despite all our efforts some hoomins didn’t seem to appreciate us or give us enough credit for all the things that we do for our hoomins on a day to day basis. So yes I do think that is about time that hoomins recognise how important we are and what a vital part we are playing in their lives....

So for the past few weeks now I keep reading more and more articles which seem to finally telling the truth about, us, cats and or important role that we are playing in our hoomins everyday lives. We are vital because we are not only keep our hoomins company these difficult times, while they are at home all the time but also we are also helping to keep them fit and healthy because we are so special and unique and of course extremely caring..and we can do things for our hoomins that no dog obviously can do....

You see a recent article which it was in the daily news explained why we, cats, can help our hoomins by simply being ourselves...

As everybody knows us, cats, like to purr a lot for our own reasons. Some hoomins of course seem to think that we do purr because this our own way to show happiness and contentment or because perhaps we are  frightened or threatened.  Which I can say it’s not that far from the truth really. Then the article went as far as to compare our purring with the hoomins tendency to smile which they seem to be doing not just when they are happy but also when they seem to be nervous and unsure, so therefore and according to some hoomins we also purr perhaps to encourage ourselves. Hmm…not so sure about this last statement though…I’d say that this bit is perhaps a little too far fetched...we don’t need to purr to encourage ourselves really....everybody knows that we are after all full of confidence so therefore we don’t really need any encouragement (By the way you can still read about meowself and Tolkien’s life at home and of course all about the good times we’ve used to have at home in the good old days before March 2020 arrived when hoomins behaved like hoomins and they’ve used to go outside often...in the hoomins comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon).


It also said that we, cats, use our purrs to entice our hoomins to either pay more attention to us or even to feed us quicker....Hee hee the purrson that wrote that article doesn’t seem to know us very well then....Meowself and Tolkien do not purr, meow or do much to get our hoomins attention or to make them feed us quickly....they are in fact so well trained that they don’t need any reminders really.

We are no purring machines who just hypnotise our hoomins into doing what we want them to do.

 According to the same article we also purr for many other reasons as well, such as purring when we are in pain or labour (what? I can’t see meowself or Tolkien going into any labour any time now or in the future), when injured or ill, or even near death as this is one of the ways we often use to calm ourselves...although I must admit I’m always pretty calm meowself so I don’t need to purr to calm meowself...I let the hoomins rub my belly instead!


Silly Tolkien eating paper again...he is such a disgrace to the catworld!


And of course the article also mentioned that by purring we also comfort not only ourselves but our hoomins too...”And is it not comforting to have your cat sit or lay beside you and purr. I have found myself upset or not feeling too well and listening to the purring I have calmed down and even fallen asleep, waking up and feeling a whole lot better.” Ahhh....isn’t that nice. I like that hoomin who wrote that. Although my hoomins think quite the opposite apparently as they are keep telling me that I purr far too  loud...as loud as I snore it seems....Well you can’t win them all I say!


Finally that article came up with some more good news as it seems that we are now the number one pets (sorry I don’t like that word....I prefer animal companions) in the US.... “In the U.S. it has been discovered that cats have become the number one pet over dogs. Cats have shown that they can do a much better job in lowering stress levels in their humans and even blood pressure and it can be as simple as the fact that their purring calms and relaxes.” Well this is a fact of course that every cat knows…we are too good for our hoomins!


So yes it seems that finally the hoomins realised how important we really are and how beneficial we can be to the entire world. We are the best companions hoomins can have....better than some hoomins some might even say!

There are many good reasons why hoomins should be sharing their homes with us, cats....

Here I’m posing for the hoomin again!


 So here we are another week has just passed and things once again haven’t changed much. Hoomins are still staying at home and they are getting more impatient as each day passes by. 

I mean I do sympathise with them as that they don’t seem to have any other choice at the momenr but and as I’ve said it before I don’t get it why they don’t like that much being indoors only hoomins like we are....they’ve got everything they need and most importantly they’ve got us, cats, of course which is something that they should be very grateful about. 

And it’s not just meowself that says so (or Tolkien although Tolkien doesn't have the mental capability to think such complicated thoughts really...By the way you can still read about our life at home and of course all about the good times we’ve used to have at home in the good old days before March when hoomins behaved like hoomins and they’ve used to go outside often...in the hoomins comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon).

No it’s not just us cats who think so but other hoomins too as it was mentioned in a recent article written by a hoomin of course which I’ve read and it was telling the hoomins the many reasons why it is beneficial to them to live with a cat...naturally there are many benefits for the hoomins who live with cats as everyone knows but I’m not going of course to mention them all here as I’d need to waste a lot of time and energy which I can’t really afford to waste. So I’m just going to mention instead some of the benefits that article was referring to.    


Yeap Tolkien looking big and being stoopid again as always!


The first reason that it was mentioned was that us cats are apparently independent creatures and unlike dogs we don’t need to be taken out for walks, we don’t need much training and we can be left on our own for longer periods than any dog....hmmm not sure about this really....well of course we don’t need training as we are already purrfect or we need to go out for walks....brr it is after all too cold, noisy and overcrowded with dogs really outside. But I don’t think that we like being left on our own for long or even at all now that the hoomins are staying at home as we need our hoomins to make sure that we have always full food and biscuit bowls, we are entertained when awake and of course have company. Nobody wants to be left alone on an empty dark house really...


Another reason apparently was because we are not very loud, we don’t bark loudly and for no apparent reason like dogs often do. 

Well, I won’t disagree entirely here we are not really that loud, well at least most of us, although they are exceptions to the rule (take Tolkien for example who can be really really loud at times as he like hearing his own voice) as of course there are certain cats who do tend to meow a lot to get attention when they want it and some can be really loud. But at least we won’t meow or bark for no reason...we always have good reason to do so and some of us like meowself they never meow....no need as my hoomins understand me!


It was also mentioned that we are very easy to train. Let me be clear on this matter, cats don’t need training we are already purrfect but hoomins do....and they are not that easy to train them really but they do learn eventually....Cats don’t need to learn anything as they already know everything


Then it was the fact that because we don’t need to be taken out for walks and we are clean in general we are better suited for living in apartments....but again and as we are so considerate and easy going we can live anywhere from apartments to castles.


Another reason that the hoomin mentioned on the article is the fact that we can keep unwanted pests and other animals away....again this is another false assumption from some hoomins as not all cats (like meowself or Tolkien) like hunting innocent animals or birdies or even insects for that matter…we prefer instead hunting catnipped toys, balls and red dots. Birds and mice are good to watch not to hunt...


Other reasons are of course because we can be so affectionate to hoomins because we like them and we are even good for their health as everyone knows that stroking a cat is the best cure for everything. All good and true reasons of course, besides we are so soft and cuddly…dogs not so much!


And of course let’s not forget that dogs can be very expensive when it comes to their food and toys....as us after all cats don’t eat too much and we can so easily entertained with some daily boxes from Amazon and even pieces of string....besides and when it comes to food we can always let our hoomins share their food with us....their plate is always big enough to share! We don’t even need in some occasions scratching areas for stretching and claw trimming as we can always use what is available in the house such as furniture, carpets, curtains and even hoomins’ legs...see we can even save money for our hoomins because we care!

Yeap I totally agree, we are too good for the hoomins and they should always be grateful for having us around. After all living with a cat is a privilege for all hoomins and they shouldn’t forget it!


Till next time

Purrs and Meows.

Hoomins are becoming more like cats....or is it the other way around?

Here I’m trying a new look...the mean meowself!

You know and as I have mentioned it many times before I meowself purrsonally I like having my hoomins at home all the time as there are more benefits in having your purrsonal servants at your disposal anytime you need them....What is the purpose of having hoomins after all when they are not around most of the day when you need them to keep food bowls full and entertain you after you had your daily naps and play with Tolkien?

So yes I’m glad that my hoomins are at home with meowself and Tolkien but there are unfortunately times when I tend to get annoyed with those other hoomins who they think that they know everything about cats and their relationship with their hoomins especially when they are getting things soo wrong and then they start accusing all cats and hoomins for things that we are not really responsible for or when they are talking and even writing about things that they are quite clear just lies and misinformation.

You see recently I’ve read an article about how hoomins seem to becoming more like their cats now that they are staying at home which it really upset me as it was quite clearly just fake mews!


After all and despite some hoomins might believe all cats have interesting lives and they don’t really need to go outside to go hunting and socialise with whoever...we don’t socialise with whoever only with our hoomins at home....and meowself and Tolkien don’t like hunting either unless we hunt of course running balls and toys stuffed with catnip....I like watching the birdies outside and I don’t want to hunt them....

So all these similarities that the writer mentioned that indoor hoomins have now with their cats are not real or make the hoomins be more like cats....I think actually that it is quite the opposite...we, cats are becoming more and more like our hoomins and we like it! So there…(By the way you can still read about our life at home and of course all about the good times we’ve used to have at home in the good old days before March when hoomins behaved like hoomins and they’ve used to go outside often...in the hoomins comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon).

I can’t see any hoomins around with paws but my hoomins seem to have hands which they do wash more often than they’ve used to for their own reason I guess but and at the same time meowself and Tolkien we also don’t spend too much time cleaning our claws as our hoomins they frequently give us pawdicures...besides our paws and claws are always clean!

Also and to make it clear our hoomins have most definitely not become more territorial over things....on the contrary they like sharing things with us....their bed, sofa and chairs and even their food....This is one of the reasons that I like my hoomins because they do like to share their things with us!

I do admit though that they do like watching the birdies outside like we do and especially those pesky squirrels which meowself and Tolkien find as you probably know rather annoying...which of course it it a good and very entertaining thing to do whether you are a cat or hoomin.

Also my hoomins do not nap during the day like we do sometimes but they do instead like sleeping quite a lot and they don’t get up early in the morning like they’ve used to as they go to bed now really really late...which it is again a good thing as we can then all go to bed at the same time!

Also they are not really obsessed with food as such but they do like doing a lot of cooking and baking which is a good thing as the house always smells now very nice and there is always good food to share...


Silly Tolkien is trying to hide again...disgraceful attempt!


I must admit though that they have become a little obsessed with cardboard box deliveries as we seem to get a lot of them these days and we now have towers of boxes to play which it is of course a good thing considering that Tolkien has a special appetite for cardboard and he goes through a lot of them in a week... 


A for doing exercising and yoga...well not so much anymore as my hoomins have long passed that phase and now they seem to prefer instead spending a lot of their time sitting and watching TV which of course is one of my favourite pastime too...There is nothing better than stretching your paws on the sofa while watching your favourite nature programme or cartoon show...

 As for running in the house....well my hoomins don’t run inside or outside the house...they seem to even find it difficult walking from one room to the next and they don’t seem to like it when meowself and Tolkien do our daily exercises as they keep saying that we are making a lot of mess and leave too much fur on the carpet (they don’t even vacuum the carpets themselves anymore as that robot vacuum seems to be doing all the work....my hoomins are so lazy!).


Of course my hoomins like meowself and Tolkien don’t like it when outside people ringing the door bell and they do get startled as it can be really loud and some people like pressing the darn doorbell just for fun but then again....there are all these almost daily deliveries which they need to be delivered.


And of course I totally dispute the fact that my hoomins are not looking after themselves anymore even if they are not going outside to be pampered as they’ve used to....they do seem to manage themselves quite well as well as they are pampering ourselves I’d say.


So there, see our hoomins are not becoming like us, quite the opposite they have only adopted our good behaviours and we have adopted theirs so everybody can live with each other happily at home...So don’t read and believe all these recent fake mews…we cats behave like cats and hoomins like hoomins…we have all simply adapted to the new changes in our lives indoors.

Some hoomins got it wrong again it seems...and they are all lies!

Here I’m entertained by my hoomin as per my request of course.

So here we are February is here and things are still the same with the hoomins still at home all the time as it has been for a long while now. 

Of course I’m not the one to complain about having hoomins at home but I think that there are some hoomins that seem to believe that we are unhappy with the current situation as they appear to be spreading lies about us cats and our hoomins being at home and how we appear not to be happy with the whole situation.

You see my hoomins recently read something in the news that it said that having the hoomins at home all the time it can be stressful to some cats as they don’t like it getting all that attention,

Apparently there was some kind of research that some hoomins did and they found out that some cats don’t want their hoomins to be at home all the time and as a result of spending too much time at home with them they then tend to become aggressive and to get stressed and to act in peculiar ways. They also said that apparently us, cats are not getting really depressed like hoomins do but we don’t seem to like getting too much attention from our hoomins…


What a lot of nonsense I say....Who and where are those cats I’m asking. Show me proof that cats with common sense (and even Tolkien who everybody knows that the has no brains agrees with me here. By the way you can still read about our life at home and of course all about the good times we’ve used to have at home in the good old days before March when hoomins behaved like hoomins and they’ve used to go outside often...in the hoomins comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon) don’t like having their hoomins at home and instead they prefer to spend hours upon hours being on their own at home till the hoomins finally decide to come home....

Yeap these are lies that some hoomins seems to have come up to make us look bad....hoomins perhaps who they don’t like cats...or even worse they prefer dogs as companions instead.


Yes Tolkien again just being silly


I mean why any cat that lives indoors like meowself and Tolkien won’t want to have his hoomins being at home safe and sound and at their disposal constantly? Who wants instead to have to wait for hours for the hoomins to come home to fill up their food and biscuit bowls when you can have constant and uninterrupted supply of fresh food and treats when your hoomin servants are at home? And what’s wrong with getting a lot of attention from hoomins? Besides I don’t think that I’m getting enough attention even with the hoomins always being at home as they still have to do work and other things which means using valuable time on other things that they are not important instead of entertaining meowself (I entertain Tolkien of course so my hoomins don’t have to). Good thing that they are at home so I can then remind them that I’m being neglected and I need their attention when they are preoccupied for too long (and even help of course with their work so they can finish quicker). 

I can’t understand why any cat would behave aggressively towards his hoomins for getting attention, food and being entertained....unless of course the hoomins are mean and nasty to the cat in which case of course they should not be living with a cat or any other living creature that they can harm anyway.


So yes that article was very upsetting and definitely it was not telling the truth of the matter....we cats love having our hoomins at home all the time and that’s a fact.

Now of course I can’t speak about those dogs meowself….


Till next time

Purrs and Meows.

Finally the hoomins seem to appreciate the benefits of being at home...

Just looking outside at that white stuff...good thing I don’t have to go outside as it does look  very cold!

Yeap it took them a while but finally my hoomins seem to have realised that being indoors all the time is a good thing after all especially now that the weather is really cold and we had quite a lot of that white stuff outside which they call snow!

Of course there are many benefits in being indoors all the time where hoomins and cats can stay safe and warm as we cats know too well but for my hoomins there have been always some cases of doubt when at times they’ve seemed to be wishing to be able to go outside frequently as they’ve used to do!


Well the recent change of weather seems to have finally convinced them otherwise...You see the last few days we had quite a lot of that snow stuff which apparently can be not only really cold (I can’t tell for certain of course as at home is always warm and cosy) but it can be also slippery and dangerous as well especially after a day or two when it freezes and it’s not that soft anymore! Something that my hoomins clearly don’t seem to like as their recent outdoors adventure appeared to indicate....Of course my hoomins occasionally they have to go outside to do some of that important stuff such as shopping something which of course I do approve as we need after all to have our cat food cupboard always full so there are no shortages to our food supply and any danger of us starving of course. So when the hoomins went outside recently weren’t pleased at all with the conditions outside as and when they came back they were kept complaining about how cold it was, how icy the roads were and how they didn’t like going outside when the weather was that bad… See? My hoomins finally realised that being indoors is a lot safer and more preferable....They finally seem to have come to their senses. Outdoors is not nice or safe to be for cats and hoomins!


Yeap...stoopid Tolkien wondering whether he can eat snow!

Of course and to be honest I also think that the hoomins might be exaggerating a little bit as well as they often tend to do so and I don’t totally believe that things are really that bad outside....The snow after all looks really pretty on the trees and plants especially when it is freshly settled. Even Tolkien thinks so too and he is even convinced that it probably tastes quite good as well (I wish hoomins would brought some snow inside for him to try so he can have his tongue frozen....that would have been really fun to watch. By the way you can still read about our life at home and of course all about the good times we’ve used to have at home in the good old days before March when hoomins behaved like hoomins and they’ve used to go outside often...in the hoomins comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon).


Yes Tolkien can be sometimes sooo stoopid and it is impossible to try and teach him anything at all. I know I have mentioned it many times before that he can’t really learn anything at all but you can’t stop a cat like meowself from keep trying to teach him some basic cat skills as I have to live with that big clumsy overgrown kitten. No brains up there but at least you can hope that he would at least understand some basics such as that he is not to follow the hoomins all the time around the house and to get so excited when the hoomins give him a bit of attention. He has no sense of cat dignity and how he needs to learn to ignore the hoomins at times if he wants them to do his bidding. You do not run to go to the hoomins when they are calling you....This is not what any decent cat would do…You simply ignore them so they’d come to you. You don’t beg for food. You simply show them with subtly that your food bowl is empty till they finally get the message....no dignity in that big soft fluff of a cat at all!


By the way today he was caught by the hoomins with a bit of white fur in his mouth so finally the hoomins realised that it is him who is the bully around here and not me....all that black fur on the carpets is just excess fur that it came out by Tolkien himself (he is pulling his own fur you know) without any intervention of meowself. Finally the truth is out!


Anymeows better go before that Tolkien steal my spot on the bed again...


 Purrs and Meows till next time.

The disappointing side of hoomins…these times!

You know that the moment I move from here that pesky Tolkien would steal my seat again...pfft!


You know I’ve been living for a very long time with my hoomins and I must admit even after all this time they can’t stop sometimes disappointing meowself. 

I mean of course I know like all cats out there who share their homes with their hoomins that hoomins are not purrfect or even adequate in many ways but you know after all this time we have at least learnt to live with them, give them the attention they need and even in some cases tolerate them even in those occasions that they are becoming almost impossible to live with....We have learnt to be patient with them and to try to always give them enough time to learn what our needs are so they can adapt to our way of life. 


But sometimes even the most patient cats like meowself can have just about enough with his hoomins....especially when they are becoming too difficult and demanding to have them around and then it becomes really hard for anyone to remain patient and understanding....

I’m not really referring to normal things which hoomins are known to frequently be doing. Like for example when they are becoming forgetful and then they’re leaving the food and biscuit bowls empty for ridiculous long periods of time which of course it can cause to any cat not only stress but also and in some cases serious and life threatening starvation. Or even those occasions when they are clearly trying to ignore us because they want to do something that it doesn’t really involve us at all and which again of course it can be very stressful to any cat…when their hoomins don’t give them the attention they need when they want it.


No of course not. These are small things which we have now most of us cats learnt how to solve by providing the appropriate training to the hoomins in question so they can avoid such serious mistakes.


The issues that I would like to mention today and which they are bothering me tremendously are the recent and frequent false accusations and lies that my hoomins are spreading against meowself. For example I have been frequently and once again accused of bullying Tolkien and chasing him around in the house and even in some occasions provoking him so he can cause trouble himself (or mayhem and destruction as the hoomins sometimes are calling it... By the way you can still read about our life at home and of course all about the good times we’ve used to have at home in the good old days before March when hoomins behaved like hoomins and they’ve used to go outside often...in the hoomins comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon). Which of course it’s not true and there is no single proof to suggest otherwise. As I’ve mentioned it before hoomins saying that they have seen me bullying Tolkien and chasing him around the house with their own eyes which it’s not actually proof as we are always moving too fast for them to be able to see what we are actually doing and therefore they are simply jumping to the wrong conclusions. I don’t bully Tolkien, of course not! I’m only trying to help him to exercise as it seems that he has started gaining a bit of weight recently… Also having black fur in my mouth it doesn’t again suggest that I was bullying Tolkien....I was simply helping with his grooming since he has too much fur and therefore he can’t really groom himself on his own....only helping you see, not bullying!


That Tolkien is getting too big to fit anywhere these days!


Also other frequent accusations that recently I have been hearing are that I eat too much again which are not true of course since Tolkien eats most of the food and biscuits than meowself and even those found pawprints and bitemarks on the cheesecake are not enough proof to accuse meowself instead of Tolkien (even if they appear to be rather small and therefore they look a lot more like mine they most definitely don’t belong to meowself) as he also jumps on the kitchen counters too. Besides he only pretends that he doesn’t like cheesecake and all the other things that the hoomins have found on the counters with teeth marks....of course he does…he is very cunning you know as well as stoopid of course. 

Besides he is quite heavy too and hoomins shouldn’t therefore complain about meowself that I’m too heavy to sit on them when they are sleeping....I’m just the right size for a cat of my age and height I say!


So all these accusations and false assumptions about meowself are really very disappointing and stressing to say at least to hear from my own hoomins who I thought I had trained them  so well especially when it is quite clear that Tolkien is the one who is responsible instead.....so disappointing to hear them being so mean to meowself after all this time! Without having any real proof!

But I guess you can’t really blame the hoomins these days for their grumpiness as being constantly at home it seems to have had such a bad effect on them after all and to have  also changed them a lot. But of course I also blame Tolkien too who has now learnt how to play the innocent and get the hoomins’ sympathy by pretending to be the victim of my bullying...But the truth would eventually come out….sooner or later!


Oh well better go now as it’s getting late and Tolkien is getting ready for his exercising....

Monday, 11 January 2021

Well everything is back to normal again and it’s rather boring...

If Tolkien thinks that I’m going to move he is very much mistaken...it’s my spot now!


So here we are once again and the new year has officially started and all the celebrations and most of the hoomins silly resolutions (thank God) have already been forgotten. Yeap normality has hit us once again and all the decorations have been put away by the hoomins and the house looks…pfft very normal again and....boring. I must admit I did like it with all the Christmas decorations and of course watching all of Tolkien’s regular attempts (most of them failed ones of course) to get rid of hoomins decorations a bit too soon than they were meant to be put away....Ahh yes I do miss those lovely weeks with all that extra food so easily obtainable and the hoomins rather unusual but welcoming for once good mood...Yeap all the good festive cheer!


But of course all the good things have to come to an end especially when it comes to a year like the last year which things didn’t really go according to plan for most of the hoomins who they had to spend a lot of their time at home and of course with us too...something that some cats like meowself and Tolkien appreciated a lot while others…not so much as hoomins can be sometimes overbearing and annoying of course (By the way you can still read about our life at home and of course all about the good times we’ve used to have at home in the good old days before March when hoomins behaved like hoomins and they’ve used to go outside often...in the hoomins comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon)!


Look what a big mouth Tolkien he has....soo stoopid he is! 


But now reality has finally hit and everything looks again rather boring and a bit depressing....not for us of course but mostly for the hoomins who have to spend once again a lot of months indoors without being able to go out at least occasionally for what they call socialising...not sure what it means really but it is something that hoomins well at least my hoomins like to do occasionally and which now they seem to be missing. Yes things don’t look good out there for the hoomins it seems as they have to spend all their time indoors once again....at least they can go out for shopping otherwise things would have been really bad if they couldn’t get our food and biscuits regularly....it would have been a national disaster I say....the end of the world as we know it and I’m not exaggerating...we’d have starved to death!


But I do think that hoomins are overacting of course as life indoors is not that bad really as we all know rather well. You know meowself and Tolkien are staying indoors all the time and we don’t mind it we don’t get depressed as there are always things that any cat or hoomin for that matter can do to entertain themselves really....For example there are always birdies and even squirrels outside to watch. Especially stoopid squirrels like the one that he is often visiting and tries to steal the birdies food and who it seems hasn’t really realised yet that there is no bird feeder on the window anymore. So he keeps climbing all the way to the top and then stares in disbelief when he can’t see the bird feeder where it used to be....stoopid squirrel.

We also had a little of bit of that white stuff the other day outside as well....what the hoomins call snow and which looks rather soft and it appears to be cold as well....Tolkien wasn’t very impressed really but it did bring a lot more birdies to the new feeder outside. 


So yes there are things to keep one’s self occupied and entertained when at home and especially now that is rather cold outside and I think that hoomins they should be grateful that they can stay indoors in the warm and they don’t have to go outside anymore (instead of watching the news on TV all the time and getting more annoyed it seems as there are no good news it appears)….

Besides it’s not only the birdies and squirrels outside that they can be entertaining as Tolkien can be too especially when he tends to freak out himself for no real reason and then he acts like he is being attacked…by his own shadow....He is such a scary cat really....meowing and scaring out the hoomins for no apparent reason....he just fell off the table in the dark...no big deal it happened to all of us…such a crying kitten really.



Anymeows better go now things to do and hoomins to try and cheer up.


Purrs and Meows till next time
