The misadventures of Ozzy and Tolkien at home

Sometimes a cat at home needs to have some fun....and to stay away from the hoomins’ cleaning monster!


Here I am again...with Tolkien trying to escape that cleaning monster on one of the few remaining safe places in the house!
Here we are again and it is now August, and hoomins are still acting as strange as they have always been the past few months with all their crazy new healthy and keep fit regimes and their unhealthy obsession with constantly cleaning the house now that they are at home all the time....Did I not mention it before that hoomins are also obsessed with cleaning these days?
Oh yes my hoomins along with the previous mentioned (a few times already) obsession of doing exercises and silly yoga to keep fit and their trying to eat some disgusting types of food so they can stay well and healthy other routine (I really missed sharing chicken and other tasty meat and fish dishes with my hoomin....the occasions when she’ll eat chicken or fish are so rare these days....ah the good old days when hoomins used to eat like normal hoomins, well at least one of them anyway are so far away....almost forgotten memories now. By the way you 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) they have also developed the constantly cleaning the house as well obsession it seems!

Tolkien sitting on the hammock ignorant of the havoc that cleaning monster is creating!
They have recently brought home more gadgets to help with cleaning and now we have more than one noisy vacuum cleaner as well as other cleaning similar gadgets which means that hoomins are vacuuming and generally cleaning the house more frequent than they’ve used to do so when they were working and didn’t spend so much time at home before so to see how messy it gets (well, in the hoomins’ opinion of course as meowself or Tolkien for that matter do not share that opinion). So now we have the normal vacuum monster that hoomins use on a weekly basis along with that other steaming monster that they use to clean floors and carpets and on top of that there is also that new robot like vacuum cleaner which is a lot bigger and noisy than the smaller one the hoomins used to use before in certain areas in the house. This one is more monstrous than the vacuum cleaner and it goes everywhere in the house, which also means that there are now no places to hide in the house left....it would find you where ever you go and under the bed is not as safe as it used to be anymore....
I’m telling you it has become so hard these days to find a good hiding spot in the house where you can spend some quality time away from the hoomins particularly those days when that robot monstrosity is cleaning the house....no peace and quiet when it is around...pfft cleaning! And meowself once upon a time thinking that Tolkien was the worst distraction and nuisance that I had to deal with....if only! I can deal with Tolkien, he is so easily put on his place....but there is nothing that I can do to stop that robot monstrosity from disturbing me when I want to snooze....Even sofas and chairs are not safe anymore as hoomins keep moving them around so everything gets cleaned thoroughly.

Nope I most definitely do not like the hoomins’ new obsession with cleaning....the house doesn’t need to be that clean...a little mess and dirt is quite healthy in my opinion! Nobody should live in a totally clean house....it’s not good for your mental and physical health I say!

So and as a result of all this keeping the house clean during the day obsession the only time that I can have a bit of fun and I can make the house feel like it is home is of course at night time when the hoomins are too busy either watching TV or doing other stuff other than cleaning! It is the best time for a cat like meowself to have some good fun with my best toy....my lovely and loyal feather and Tolkien of course which is so easy to chase around the house and being so big and clumsy of course he then gets accused by the hoomins for making all the mess....Besides hoomins say that I look very cute when I play with my feather and that I’m an example for Tolkien on how to play without causing too much damage....one of these days Tolkien would learn from meowself they say....to play like I do....without causing a havoc! Those hoomins are so gullible sometimes….he, he!

Anymeows better go now....feather to play with and Tolkien to chase....especially now that the hoomins are not watching!

Purrs and meows till next time.

What hoomins do it’s not always something that has been approved by meowself…to be clear!

Having a little time to meowself  with my friend the feather!
Here we are again and another week of non existent in this country at least summer has just passed and things are really as they were last week and the week before and the one before that, etc, etc....you know since hoomins decided to be like us, indoors only cats and to change the natural order of things…for ever!

But you know meowself, I’m not the one to complain, I have got used to and adapted to this new life now of having the hoomins permanently around and it doesn’t bother me anymore..at all! On the contrary and as I’ve said it before hoomins being around 24 hours a day (more or less) are quite useful to have and they can of course always entertain you when you want them to do so (even if they think that they don’t want to). So there would be no more complains about my hoomins from meowself....well at least for the time being....because and after all nobody is purrfect....except from meowself of course (and Tolkien is not included either as he is too much of a hard effort most of the times anymeows....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)

But of course there are some things that I feel that I need to clear up so I’m not being misunderstood and my actions are misinterpreted… For example I might have mentioned a few times already about hoomins and their new obsession of doing exercising and looking so very silly in these yoga poses they are trying. I might have also mentioned that sometimes I like helping the hoomins when they are doing exercising....but and to make it very clear here I do not really approve of exercising in general whether it is hoomins or cats that are doing the exercising thing. Yes and I might be having a bit of fun with the hoomins when they are ‘working out’....you know when I’m actually helping them so they are doing all that bending and stretching correctly by simply sitting on them or passing under when they are bending to check things out....and most definitely not trying to trip them over or anything mean like that...I mean if they do accidentally trip over it’s not really because of my doing, not my fault at all....Those hoomins should learn to keep their balance at all times…whatever the obstacle. And of course it’s not that funny when they do lose their balance and then they fall down....well OK maybe a little bit funny! Nevertheless I most definitely do not approve of any form of exercising and in my opinion the hoomins are being and looking very silly when they are doing so and whatever happens to them it’s entirely their fault. You see no harm ever comes from snoozing and eating in my opinion....doing exercising on the other hand is very dangerous...someone might hurt themselves and it most definitely won’t be meowself....hoomins! So now they have been warned and any accidents or other future falls are their own doing...

Τοlkien here playing with his toy mouse thinking that no one can’t see him!

Another thing that I would like to clear now is the wrong accusation from the hoomins, naturally, about meowself and Tolkien playing rough at night time and destroying the house in the process with our little chasing game....I mean this is just totally nonsense....unfound accusations with no real evidence to prove it. I mean how is it possible that ourselves, two innocent small cats (one of which is very cute indeed….meowself of course not Tolkien) can actually cause serious damages to the house? Not possible....A little running around the house never has harmed anyone....besides this is how us, cats, are doing our exercising…hoomins...We are not anything like rhinos during a stampede....and I have no idea what Jumanji is anymeows.

Also and finally I don’t believe that I snore either....or that my snoring is so loud that I’m freaking out Tolkien and the hoomins can’t even hear the telly....such an accusation and exaggeration I say....Hoomins can be so cruel sometimes....mocking an innocent cat like meowself....really!

Anymeows better go now....it is time for a little play time around the house with Tolkien

Purrs and meows till next time!

How to have fun with the hoomins...when they are around all the time

Here I’m again...helping hoomin with yoga and having a bit of fun meowself!
Here we are again, another week has just passed...and it is still summer…
apparently, well the weather in this country doesn’t seem to know it...anymeows as it hasn’t got any warmer yet!

So and yes my hoomins are still at home....they hardly ever leave or seem to want to leave the house anymore and I’m finally totally OK with it, I have made my peace with the idea that the hoomins are here to stay....
After all I do prefer them to be at home all the time instead of going outside like those other hoomins out there or as how they’ve used to do before because and let’s admit it, hoomins have many uses around the house after all.
As I’ve mentioned it before with hoomins around you never have to worry about finding your bowls empty anymore or and very importantly finding yourself being bored at home on your own and then try to convince Tolkien to entertain you (By the way you 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)

Yeap having the hoomins around means that they can always entertain me any time of the day I want them to (the night I prefer to sleep really so I won’t usually bother them)...whether they like it or not....well they don’t have much of a choice on the matter after all as they are far too weak to try to resist me (and I’m far too cute not to be acknowledged by the hoomins!).

But I do admit it that they are certain things that hoomins are doing now that they are at home always which things they’ve never used to do before and which things are very entertaining like when they are trying to do their exercising for example! They are really so funny my hoomins when they are trying all these weird yoga positions and of course they are then also become totally available to use (the hoomins I mean of course). You known you can do anything you like at that time as the hoomins can’t really react or they are able to  do anything…you know like walking under when they are bending down or walk or sit on top of them when they are lying down and of course to also try and trip them over and even (and this is my best one yet) tickle them with my tail when they can’t use their hands while they are trying to balance...They are so funny in all their attempts to do their exercises...Sometimes you wonder and want to know why the hoomins put themselves in so much trouble to do this yoga thing so they can look so silly…Why going into all this trouble instead of doing what we, cats, do....nothing, just snoozing and napping between meals....that’s more than sufficient for us....and everybody else!

Tolkien here not so sure and brave about that robot vacuum yet...he is just watching!
But of course and despite what you might think I’m not really that selfish....I’m only having a bit of fun with the hoomins and I’m always making sure that no harm would come to them when they are doing their hoomin yoga.....actually and If you think about it I’m actually helping them by making sure that they are doing those exercises and animal poses correctly...you know that they bend and stretch the right way.....

Of course having fun with the hoomins when they are exercising is one of the many ways that I entertain meowself with the hoomins at home....I often like playing with them other fun games too like the little treasure hunt game I have invented after I have been to the litter tray. You know to find the accidentally left on the carpet poolet and to avoid stepping on it and then making a mess on the rest of the house....This is definitely one of my favourite games to play with the hoomins and I’m pretty sure that the hoomins are enjoying playing it too (hoomins they need to find it before the robot vacuum does of course!).

I must also admit that I do enjoy playing with Tolkien in some occasions and he is quite good for a little chasing around the house especially late at night even with the hoomins still around and fully awake but I don’t accept the accusation that I provoke Tolkien and that I’m a bad example to him or that we are a destructive force when playing and  that I make those silly froop froop noises that hoomins say that I do...I don’t make any kind of noises to be clear....I don’t even meow, it’s all Tolkien who makes any kind of noise....

By the way hoomin it wasn’t meowself who was scratching at the door earlier and wanted to get it....it was Tolkien of course!

Anymeows better go now....time for a little midnight snack!

Purrs and meows till next time!

The guide of how to be a helpful cat....to hoomins!

Tolkien sometimes can be a bit of a headache with his silly hiding habits....
Well here we are again another week has just passed, the weather hasn’t got any better, hoomins are still indoors permanently that pesky squirrel is back on the feeder again along with his mate that really fat wood pigeon and now it seems I’ve seen everything....cats walking outside on a leash!

I guess someone might call it a normal week, you know having the hoomins at home all the time, the weather outside being rather bad for summer, the squirrel visiting in the morning the bird feeder and eating all the poor birdies food and also having that very annoying fat wood pigeon which he seems to be getting bigger as each day passes by making loud noises as he tries to fit in feeder…just normal every day events!
 And it would have been a normal week if I didn’t start seeing stranger things outside as well! You see I know that there are two other rather handsome black and white cats living next door but what I didn’t know was the fact that they are going outside for walkies like doggies do...on a leash! 
Why? I’ve asked! How humiliating! ....So unnecessary in my opinion. I don’t want meowself to go outside at all! Whether it is on a leash or being carried on a basket....it’s not very nice outside in my opinion (and Tolkien’s of course)....it is rather noisy, cold and smelly and there are far too many hoomins out there as well now along with what ever else is being let loose outside. Nope I like staying indoors with my hoomins and....Tolkien of course....thank you very much!
(By the way you 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)

Yeap I prefer staying indoors and be useful to the hoomins as much as I can instead. You see meowself and Tolkien have decided that our hoomins really need our help....Not only with the house chores....although hoomins seem to have a lot of gadgets these days to help them do a lot of the housework and that newest robot cleaner they’ve got it is a bit annoying....it seems to go everywhere and you can’t really escape it....hmmm.
Yeap...here he is again believing that he is invisible when he is not even well hidden....silly Tolkien!
But anymeows Tolkien and meowself are still trying to he helpful around the house and we try to help the hoomins anyway we can....especially when they are trying to do their daily exercises!
I know at first I might have been totally against it....you know it is against my nature as a cat to like any form of exercising ( purrsonally I prefer to rest and have long naps instead) but if this is what the hoomins want to do then I’m all for it....I’d help them meowself and Tolkien as much as we can....
So when hoomins are doing their exercises we are now always there to help them do all these funny poses they are supposed to do....you know providing actual assistance like biting the hands or feet so they can stretch right, walking under them when they are bending so they are doing it again right, sitting on them, walking on their backs and stomach when they are on the floor and even doing some exercises meowselves like cat leg stretching for more support....Anything we can do to help!
I must admit though that Tolkien is not much of a help as he gets easily bored and then he goes back on the chair to snooze before the hoomins have finished....but I’d always stay till the end to make sure that they do every single exercise correct. You are most welcome  hoomins! Well my hoomins are not really very good with that exercising thing to be honest and they often do things the wrong way so they need my help to correct themselves….this is why I’m here for hoomins!
Now and to make things clear…when it comes to the incident with the blinds....it was all Tolkien’s doing of course....I have nothing to do with pulling the blinds while the hoomins were exercising and I didn’t want to embarrass them in anyway.....I’m always trying to help! Hoomins need their exercising....and meowself some extra treats for being so helpful of course! But Tolkien is still young and doesn’t always understand….he he…it was funny though to see the quick reaction from the hoomins when they suddenly realised that the blinds had been pulled and that they could be seen from outside….so funny! If only I had their camera!

Anymeows better go now....time to check on hoomins and food bowls!

Purrs and meows till next time!

New toys and bananas with new boxes...what hoomins are up to now?

Here I am with my new banana...I’m trying to keep it away from Tolkien you see1
Here we are again, another week has just passed and having the hoomins at home day and night it has now become the new norm. At least they seem to have adapted quite well to the life indoors and now things seem to have gone into some kind of routine, sort of....but you already know of course that us cats like routines in general and we are not big fans of any changes....changes are not good really for mental and physical reasons!
(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 quite often...in the hoomins comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon)

But of course and rather unfortunately hoomins don’t think the same as they always seem to like changing things or at least replacing old things with new ones, you know newest versions....especially when it comes to their gadgets. 
So now that my hoomins are at home all the time they have become a bit more obsessed (then usual of course) with bringing home new gadgets....because they say they can make life easier....hmmm! Not really….I think that my hoomins are probably bored and they try to find new ways to keep themselves entertained with new things....a piece of string in my opinion would do the trick instead....hours of fun for the hoomins and meowself....and Tolkien of course! No need for any new gadget to invade our home I say!

So now we have at home a gadget for almost everything and some of these gadgets are rather annoying and in particular those that they are moving around the house for example and they supposedly are doing useful things like cleaning our mess....which is of course a lie....meowself and Tolkien are not in any way responsible for any mess at home....it’s all the hoomins, they have become very messy and sloppy now that they are at home all the time!

Strange cat is Tolkien...here is chomping paper again! 
But of course it wouldn’t have been that bad if hoomins were just buying toys for themselves only and kept us out of this new technology trend  that seems to be invading our home....you know toys that stay out of our own way....But no because hoomins are hoomins and they can’t help themselves they’d then try to inflict their own obsession to us as well. So now we are also getting new toys that they are not only moving around but also it seems they are trying to chase us around the house instead of us chasing them.....Well sort of…I mean I don’t know if this is actually a hoomin plotting or something so to get meowself and Tolkien on to exercising and doing cat yoga or something but this new robot toy hoomins got us is really mean....it’s evil!

I mean it has this nice and lovely feather and when you try to get it suddenly starts moving around and runs away and when you try to catch it then it’d start flashing different colours and then it would turn and it’d start chasing you instead....I mean that evil robot is actually stalking you....then it would stop suddenly and it would play dead for a while. It won’t  move or make any noise and when you’d try to get closer it’d then start moving again and you won’t know whether to chase it or not....Actually that silly annoying robot thing is very good in avoiding obstacles in its way like the hoomins cleaning gadget when it’s lose in the house.....It is a very strange toy and meowself and Tolkien haven’t still figured out how to get to that lovely feather it’s carrying….but we will in the end of course. Not toy robot can outsmart meowself….Tolkien not so much though!
Well at least the box it came…was nice as it was a very good size to get in but unfortunately I didn’t have the opportunity to check it thoroughly  as Tolkien started chewing it and now it’s in many pieces on the carpet! Yes Tolkien of course....who keeps getting stranger and stranger as each day passes by....He likes stranger things like chewing things and in particular boxes and paper so hoomins now have to always keep an eye on him at all times....You don’t know what he might start chomping next....

But I guess I shouldn’t be complaining too much really....hoomins are trying their best to keep us entertained especially now that they are at home....They did get me my new banana as the older one got a bit ...well you know was a bit over used (I blame Tolkien of course with his kitten teeth...).
To be honest though I don’t really know why I like bananas so much....but there is something about them....maybe it’s the shape or the catnip inside....who knows...They are my favourite nevertheless and hoomins always make sure that I have a new banana when I get bored with the old one but of course now with Tolkien around I don’t get to spend too much time with it as I’ve used to before....Again blame Tolkien for wanting everything and being such a  strange cat as well!

Anymeows better go now as everything it is rather quiet and Tolkien has finally left my banana alone!

Purrs and meows till next time!

Oh great....apparently summer is here so is getting rather hot and the hoomins are not doing anything about it….

See? I’m hot and bothered and hoomins are not around to serve you when you need them!
Well, here we are again another week has just passed and hoomins are of course at home and still behaving rather silly (you know with their new obsession with exercising and trying to keep fit…such nonsenses really)…and to top it up summer is also here and last week was unexpectedly hot at home....I mean what happened to the good, cold summer weather we are so used to here in this country?
You know of course that I’m not one of those cats that likes to moan a lot....despite what my hoomins might be saying or thinking about meowself (and Tolkien is not included as he is still too young and stupid to have an opinion here or in any other important matter 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 ). 

Yes most definitely, I’m not one of those cats that like to moan and complain a lot despite the fact that there are always so many good reasons for doing so....And of course I don’t like moaning about the weather either, I’m not like the hoomins of course who like to talk about the weather all the time…such a bad habit really. You see I’m used to the weather we have in this country and to be honest and thanks to my hoomins it is always warm and cosy at home (yes, I do admit it, hoomins are good at something at last, keeping the place we live nice and warm all the time....hmm maybe a bit too much it might seem after all, especially in the summer months when it is in generally hot like it was last week!).

So and although I don’t like to complain especially when it comes to weather as there is not much that anyone, hoomins or cats can really do about it but then again there are some occasions when, well, you know, you have to have some strong opinion on the matter.....when it gets too hot for example and it is almost impossible to find a good cooling spot in the house (by the way I’m not one of those cats that like sleeping on the floor no matter what the weather is like….the floor is really rather hard for my delicate body who likes soft places….even the hoomins in some occasions as they are not that hard to sit or sleep on of course!). 
Of course it doesn’t get often too hot in this country or at least to those extreme levels when it becomes uncomfortable at home but still you do get sometimes some days or even some weeks when it gets really really hot and you can’t even find the right cooling spot in the house where you can have some good uninterrupted napping time.....
In such occasions I will of course moan as I have every right to do so and blame the hoomins for not been capable to provide meowself with sufficient cool and comfortable places in the house. You know it is their duty after all to make sure that meowself (and Tolkien....of course) are comfortable and cool enough and don’t suffer when it gets too hot....You see I know that they do have some cooling devices well hidden somewhere in the house but they never seem to be bothered to take them out so they can put them in good use. I also do not accept their excuses that it’s not really hot enough as the house stays quite cool because it’s location....In my opinion last week was too hot in the house (even Tolkien thought so too....poor Tolkien this is his first adult summer and he didn’t seem to be coping well with the hot weather…well his fault really. He shouldn’t have so much thick fur).
Here Tolkien appears to be melting...that hot weather was a bit too much for him last week!
But at least the hot weather only lasted a few days and now we are finally back to the normal summer weather, you know rain, wind and low temperatures....the way I prefer it really. Nope I don’t like hot summer days especially when hoomins are also using my favourite spots and there is not enough room to stretch on the sofa or on the bed....why those hoomins don’t ever sit on the floor, why do they need to occupy my sofas, chairs and beds? 
So and hopefully this hot spell was the last one we would see this summer so I won’t have to suffer ever again…Nope I’m not a summer cat it seems!

By the way and despite what my hoomins might think or saying about meowself these days chasing Tolkien around the sofa is actually a fun game to play and they should try it for themselves instead of trying to do silly yoga or any other exercising nonsenses....I also like to make it clear that what it might look as starring at nothing is not by any means any attempt from my part to freak out the hoomins and to make them believe that I see ghosts....there is a very good explanation for when meowself and Tolkien stare at nothing....which I’m not going to tell you....you don’t really need to know everything you know!

Anymeows time for a little snack before my late night play session around the sofa with Tolkien....hoomins shouldn’t be still awake that late in the night....ghosts and spirits might be lurking about you know!

Purrs and meows till next time!

A cat at home is always a great help to have....to do work, house cleaning and exercising!

Sometimes you just can’t take it anymore with the hoomins being at home all the time...so they need to talk to my paws instead!

Now and if you remember, last week, I’ve mentioned how us, cats, always help our hoomins as we’d do a lot of jobs at home and which jobs of course and unfortunately are not always being appreciated or acknowledged by our hoomins!

Of course some might say that this is something that it should be expected from the hoomins as they are not in general very good at recognising and appreciating what others that they are non hoomins often do (even dogs along with other non hoomin animals that live with the hoomins) everywhere and not just at home....I’m talking about in general as hoomins tend not to understand and of course appreciate that they are other creatures out there living in this world which do a lot of things to keep this world as it is....let’s say to keep it in good working order....unlike some hoomins of course!
But let’s not sidetrack here and make things too complicated for the hoomins to understand,.
So let’s go back to those jobs that us, cats, do almost on a daily basis at home. And to be clear I wasn’t planning to go to such a big detail about the things I do for the hoomins especially these days that they are at home all the time and they need our assistance (we are always here for them of course, mentally and physically), Tolkien too (by the way you can read all 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).

Last week I’ve mentioned the most obvious things that we do at home, some of which even the hoomins might recognise....so today I thought I’d mention the other stuff, you know the things that hoomins might not consider that we cats actually contribute to a lot....because you know why of course!

So there are more other things that we do for the hoomins especially now that they are at home always such as helping them with their work which now they’re doing at home during the day and even at late or in the early morning hours because it is quiet and hoomin says she can be more productive she says....wherever hoomin. The point is that I’d always give a paw to the hoomins or at least to one of them to do their work....you know sitting on the hoomin, on the laptop or tablet, knocking things from the desk, attacking the mouse (which by the way is not really a mouse...hoomin is clearly mistaken again), sitting on papers to keep them warm as well, etc, you know all the helpful things that I can do from my part....hoomin you are more welcome!

Then there is of course the house work which meowself and Tolkien are always very keen to help with such as doing the bed....I usually leave this type of work to Tolkien of course who has now become very good at helping the hoomins and who hoomins of course seem to actually appreciate all the help they can get.

Tolkien here is helping the hoomins with the bed....Tolkien is always very helpful!
I prefer to help in the kitchen instead you know with cooking, hoomin food tasting (wherever in the house this might need to take place....I’d help the hoomins with their food everywhere) and also dish cleaning....I’d always clean the plates or bowls after the hoomins have finished eating....and I’d even help to clean the cooking pots and trays they’d use in the kitchen....again you’re welcome hoomins! Tolkien also does a lot of floor cleaning for the hoomins as well and often he likes to roll on the hard floor and pick up on his fur a lot of dust and other unindentified objects!

Also and now that the hoomins have this new strange hobbit of doing exercising (and trying to eat healthy which of course I don’t actually approve either) I’m also there for them and try to help them when they are doing their exercises and I’d even try to rescutite them when they seem to be dead....relaxing or whatever.
Actually Tolkien tries to help the hoomins with their exercises as well....you know by creating obstacles in front of them by lying on the floor in front of the hoomins’ feet so they have to try and avoid him....you know a form of cat twister....sometimes I’d also get involved too. You know we’do everything to help our hoomins to keep fit....again you are welcome hoomins!

So and as you see we contribute a lot on a day to day basis and help our hoomins to do their work, house work and even their exercises so they can stay fit and healthy.....you are welcome hoomins.

But I don’t expect of course a lot of thank you from the hoomins…they just need to make sure to give me a bit attention when I need it and to also make sure that my food and biscuit bowls are never empty....small things to ask for doing sooo much for them!

Till next time
Purrs and meows!

All the important jobs that us cat do when hoomins are at home (permanently it seems) without being acknowledged!

I’m also and often helping the hoomins in the kitchen ...here I’m keeping away those dangerous pesky drops!

Here we are again another week has just passed and the hoomins are acting more peculiar than ever (and I’m not just referring to their new trying to get fit obsession…).
You know and when you have just used to have the hoomins around all the time and finally have accepted the fact that they are not to go away any time soon (which really it proves to be not a bad thing after all anymeows)....things then are starting to change again! 
I mean hoomins have always been very unreliable in general as they can never seem to be able to stick to their own decisions when they keep saying that they would do one thing and then decide to do something else instead. You know when they’ve kept saying for weeks now that they were now permanently indoors hoomins and suddenly and unexpectedly pfft they’ve changed their mind and they’ve started going out again....well at least for a little while but more frequently than before...well, my hoomins that is. But I have seen the signs of such things to come as more and more hoomins are now outside again and my own hoomins are getting also excited about being able to go outside again....not to their workplace at least as they are now working apparently permanently from home which of course for meowself and Tolkien is a very good thing....To be honest I have most definitely now changed my mind and I don’t want my hoomins to go out ever again....I prefer to have them at home...safe and available at all times (you can read all 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)

Of course some hoomins then might also say that we cats might have used this recent and current situation to our own advantage by making sure that we are getting a lot of attention from the hoomins while they are at home and becoming very demanding and some might even say destructive in some occasions if our demands are not met....
Which of course is just false accusations made up probably by those that they don’t like us and want the hoomins and the rest of the world to think that we are very manipulative and lazy...not true of course!

Tolkien of course is not much of help around...he is a bit too lazy for a cat it seems!

This is why I thought that this is a good opportunity for meowself to try and explain how kind, understanding and important we are us, cats, to our hoomins especially at times when they have to spend all of their time at home and when they quite clearly are depending on us!
You see us, cats, do a lot of very important jobs at home which often they go unnoticed and they are not being acknowledged or appreciated by our hoomins. We do these jobs day in and day out because we care and we want to help our hoomins as much as we can, especially in these difficult times!

You see all you hoomins out there you seem to forget that us cats are always around ready to help when we are needed (which is more frequent than you can imagine). 

Us, cats at home we are the best inspectors and checkers of many situations, some of which can even be rather dangerous....

You know and you probably don’t even realise that it is us who always are checking dangerous places like cupboards, wardrobes, draws and even shelves where hazardous things and even threatening creatures might be lurking....we want to make sure you see that our hoomins are safe when they are opening cupboards and draws, etc. We also have to check all new things when they are being brought home from outside such as shopping bags as there are so many things that they can be hiding inside those bags and of course and the most dangerous of them all.....checking those boxes that they so often arriving from amazon.... those boxes they can be such a big threat, believe me, especially to hoomins who often are not aware of such a danger!

We also often test for the hoomins other dangerous things such as their food. We need to make sure of course that it would not harm them and that is safe to eat. This is why I’m  always insisting that my hoomins allow me to test their food from their plates....I’m their food tester you see!

I also have to check frequently the places they go when at home because they can be still proved to be harmful to the hoomins especially those mysterious dark places like the bathroom where they often like to go and insisting on closing the door as well....Those places can be very hazardous to all and especially to hoomins so it’s my cat duty to accompany the hoomins to those places always....so no harm comes to them!
Our jobs of course doesn’t involve only checking places and things around the house. Oh no....You see, us, cats we are also very good therapists too and we help our hoomins when they need us the most.
We are known to be very good at helping the hoomins when they are feeling stressed or they are depressed (you know stroking us and listening to some cat purring are the best treatments a hoomin can get at home) as well as giving them massages or warming parts of the body by just siting there such as their head (and other bodily parts of course). We’d even sit on things that the hoomins are often using such as the bed, chairs and sofas and even in some cases the keyboard they use to do their work to warm them up for them...

And of course let’s not also forget how good we really are as interior designers which means that if it wasn’t for us the hoomins’ homes would have looked so boring and uninspiring. We are always willing to help with decorating the furniture such as sofas and chairs, and we’ll often remove unnecessary items that they don’t look really good in certain locations such as shelves....We will also frequently change the colour of certain pieces of furniture by adding our own unique fashionable touch…by applying some of our own fur....Meowself and Tolkien of course and as you probably already know we are very good with carpets....which is our speciality.... you know we always move them around to better locations in the house!

So yes we do a lot of important jobs at home, a lot more than the ones I’ve just mentioned above and which of course it would take me a very long time to mention them all. Besides it is getting late and it is time to go and check on my hoomins as they would probably already missing me and worrying that I have not been around to keep them company.....besides it’s dinner time anymeows!

Purrs and meows till next time!

Sometimes a cat at home needs to have some fun....and to stay away from the hoomins’ cleaning monster!

Here I am again...with Tolkien trying to escape that cleaning monster on one of the few remaining safe places in the house! Here we a...
