Life with Ozzy and.. Tolkien

Life with Ozzy and.. Tolkien
The misadventures of Ozzy and Tolkien at home

Monday, 1 June 2020

About such silly things as bullying and any other false accusations that you might have heard....

See? When you need one there is no one around to entertain you!

So here we are again, at the start of another month, the first summer month of course and things once again haven't changed that much....well OK maybe they have changed a little bit....not sure if it is for the better or the worse though! Hoomins going outdoors again….hmmm!
Well and anymeows my hoomins are still at home full time and now I know for certain that they have become indoor only hoomins. Although the other day they did something very peculiar which kinda surprised both meowself and Tolkien....because and as you’ll see it was so out of character for my hoomins to do so....Very unexpectedly they both went outside at the same time, you know together....Of course they do still occasionally go outside for some time, mostly to do what they call shopping especially one of my hoomins at least but never together. They haven’t gone outside together for many many weeks now...But that wasn’t the only thing that it was strange....no, no! It was the time they went outside...very very early in the morning....Meowself and Tolkien were still asleep on bed when the hoomins, OK, one of the hoomins got up (the other hadn’t gone to bed yet it seems) and then they both went outside for sometime. They were talking about doing something like watching some kind of birdies and wildlife of some sort that apparently  it needed to be done early before other hoomins were out and about or other birdies or something similar….which of course it didn’t make a lot of sense!
Well the whole thing it was too ridiculous in my opinion as they could have easily watched the birdies from the livingroom or bedroom windows since we get a lot of birdies on the feeder (along with that pesky squirrel of course and who by the way is back again....yesterday he spend most of the afternoon in the feeder chomping away all the poor birdies food....such a troublesome bushy tail creature) and of course and most absurdly the idea of actually seing any hoomins outdoors...really now, they are no hoomins outside anymore or at least they weren’t any till recently of course! (By the way you can still 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)

Tolkien is sooo stupid...he thinks he is going to catch that pesky squirrel!

Although today I must admit I’ve spotted quite a few to he honest (you know pesky hoomins not squirrels) something that both meowself and Tolkien didn’t really like. To tell you the truth I do prefer it when other hoomins are not around and my own hoomins are at home all the time! You see when hoomins are not around there are more birdies and other animals around and the parks, canals and other places where the hoomins can’t go anymore are staying clean and look nice without all that rubbish that hoomins often leave behind....As for my own hoomins and as I’ve said it before I like to have them around all the time to give me the attention I want, to entertain me and of course to keep my food bowls full at all times. They are good servants my hoomins you see and I do prefer to have them indoors every day and night....besides without the hoomins around that pest Tolkien would have been too much to cope with.
You know as I’ve mentioned it before many times now that he is such a bully and always gets me into some kind of trouble and manages to convince the hoomins to take his side because he makes all these cute noises/meows and pretends to talk to hoomins which of course and as we have already established they really love it when we meow to them and act like we are talking to them and we are having a serious conversation....not true as hoomins don’t understand a meow we are saying of course!
But Tolkien when we are playing and I’m doing him here a favour and play with him when he constantly nags me to play even when I’m not in the mood to do so he often acts like he is being tortured or bullied by meowself....Then the hoomins believe that we are playing too rough and try to intervene so we don’t get too far, like we don’t know how to stick to the rules when playing…we are cats after all, not silly hoomins!  So and as I’ve said it before all that noise Tolkien is making and pretending that I’m rough handling him and even goes to such length as to let his fur come loose so the hoomins can find it on the carpet and think that I’m responsible and that I’m actually pulling his fur with my teeth and claws is only an act, he just plays the drama queen and the whole thing is absurd really!
So one more time and to to be totally clear on the matter I’m not bullying Tolkien and I’m not playing aggressively with him or the hoomins....I’m very gentle with Tolkien (and the hoomins) even if he is quite big now and still very stupid....

I mean and seriously now what cat cat could have ever been scared of something that silly as the hoomin’s flip flops and go into hiding when he sees the hoomin wearing them and walking around in the house....they are not any new strange species and they are not a threat to anybody… they are just hoomin shoes which she always wears in the summer when it’s hot! Such a stupid kitten Tolkien still is! 

Anymeows better go now as Tolkien tries to get my attention again and I’m really pooped! Besides hoomins are too busy and they try to ignore him...perhaps if the hoomin has refilled my bowl again I could try to ignore him too!

Purrs and meows till next time!

Hoomins are still at home all the time and Tolkien has now become very talkative....

Here I am again trying to get some meowself time....but the hoomins are always around!
So here we are another week has just passed and things haven’t changed much....oh wait, well they have changed a bit!
You know how things sometimes just get out of hand and there is not much that you can really do. 
So when I finally got used to the idea that my hoomins are here to stay....which after all and if you think about it for us cats is not the worst thing that it could happen since and at the end of the day is good to have your servants around and available when you need them, Tolkien suddenly started becoming an annoying issue...,
I don’t really know what is the cause for that change in his behaviour… maybe it is his age, after all he is now 1 year old,  he is big boy (literally he is really big) now and a very loud one it seems.
Well, Tolkien was always a bit vocal especially with the hoomins since his arrival but because he was still small and some (not meowself) might even say rather cute his whining little voice wasn’t that a big issue....but now it is, at least for me anymeows! (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)

Yeap Tolkien again....trying to walk all over me as always!
I know of course that some cats have figured out that meowing can work really well for them because hoomins for some strange reason that I could never really understood seem to like to use different some might say strange sounds, lots of them and they’d then also react more positively towards other creatures that they are vocal too because they kinda believe that the other creatures are trying to talk to them in the same way! For some even more bizarre reason they appear to even somehow understand some of those sounds from other animals....like our meows for example....well OK sort of! They seem to understand what we usually try to tell them without really knowing what we actually are saying. Peculiar ha? They can’t even speak our language because of course they are not cats although they do behave often a lot like us! I guess the reason is because hoomins are not that intelligent after all!
So and despite the fact that hoomins are clueless when it comes to the cats way of communication they appear to be more motivated to do what we want them to do when we meow to them (maybe they think that we are talking to them, you know we are having what they call a conversion with them).
So and if you really want to convince your hoomins to do what you need your best method is either to meow to them or to simply play the cute card, something that really works for me as you already know I don’t like wasting too much energy on vocalising....just been cute works just fine!
But Tolkien has become one of these cats that he won’t shut up...now that he has figured out that he can make hoomins do what he wants them to do he uses all these annoying constant meows to achieve it. So it is all the time meow this, meow that and even some more meow!
Of course some might say that perhaps it is his breed or something similar as certain cats are apparently  more talkative than others which of course I don’t really buy as he simply has just figured out all these months how to manipulate the hoomins. He would use all these cute meows and then the hoomins would simply fall for it! So now every time he meows it’s always “What you want Tolkien?’ and ‘What’s the matter boy?’ and ‘Do you want more food Tolkien, do you want to play Tolkien?’ or even worst ‘Are you been bullied again Tolkien?’. Pathetic.
Now and to make things clear I don’t bully Tolkien. I’m only trying to toughen him up a little, it’s all part of his training, you see! As for all that black fur that hoomins say that they are keep finding it’s definitely not my doing....Tolkien has a lot fur and some of it let’s say gets a bit loose....on the carpet. Plus and because he is very vocal every time I try to teach him how to be a proper cat and especially when hoomins are close up he makes these pathetic little squeaks like somebody is trying to kill him or something which of course makes hoomins think that I’m bullying him.....Quite the 
opposite actually....he is bullying me!

Yes Tolkien has become annoyingly vocal and hoomins are falling for his little squeaks and meows and he gets what he wants and he even gets me into trouble as well. Well I guess I could also do the same and start to meow to get more attention from hoomins but sometimes wanting too much attention can backfire as one of my hoomin’s likes to be very affectionate and it is really hard to clean certain parts of your body such as the top of your head when hoomins get too excited (by the way I’m not OCD either).

Oh well better go now and check on those hoomins and that pesky Tolkien, we don’t want him to start eating my food now....you know how easily hoomins can be convinced when you play the cute card….

Purrs and meows till next time!

So another week has just passed and I still have to cope with Ozzy and the hoomins at home…

Here I’m having a little rest on my sofa...see how long I am? Longer than that pest Tolkien of course!
So yes here we are again at the start of another week, May has almost gone as well and things unfortunately haven’t changed at all. Yeap, you’ve guessed it! Hoomins are still at home full time and Tolkien has become as bad as the hoomins it seems now that he is 1 year old....You would have thought that now that he is older at least some common cat sense would have finally settled with him...but no, he is as stupid and gullible as he has always been...no change here!
Yeap just my luck....lazy hoomins and a kitten/youngster with no brains....
I wouldn’t have blamed you if you had thought that after of all these months of hard training from meow part that he would have finally learnt at least the basic cat behaviours but not our Tolkien....he still doesn’t know anything at all…not even simple things just as how to cover after he has been to the litter tray…nope he has not a clue and despite all his failing attempts to paint instead the litter tray he doesn’t even comes close to cover anything and therefore I end up covering instead everything for him while and at the same time I’ve need also to figure out which litter tray in which room he had just used....Sometimes I wonder why the hoomins added so many litter trays in the house....I mean and don’t get me wrong it’s good to have choices but when you live with Tolkien these might not be very good choices as he would visit a different litter tray every time he wants to use one which of course it makes extra hard for me to locate which one he has just used!!!

Of course when you share your home with other cats it is good to have choices so there are no arguments about who would go where and when but when you live with Tolkien....well let’s say that is hard to keep up with him.
(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)

Tolkien stretching on hoomins’ bed...he is not that long really...just annoying!
Yes Tolkien can be such a difficult to understand and deal with kitten.... even worse than the hoomins at times it seems. I mean he wants to be a tough and brave cat who is not afraid of anything and anybody but deep down he is really such a scary kitten who gets easily scared by the most ridiculous sounds from outside that they are not even that loud sometimes and then he’ll quickly go into hiding...While and on the other hand he doesn’t seem to get scared by the really scary things such as the hoomins vacuum cleaner, that noisy monster but and at the same time he is petrified of the small robot cleaner even if it doesn’t hardly make any noise....
Strange and in many ways still a kitten I guess....He tries to show off when the hoomins are around and he pretends that he is brave and tries to bully me....if that is possible of course although sometimes I do play along pretending that I actually get bullied by Tolkien as this seems to be working well with the hoomins who’ll then take my side and tell him off....well kinda...they don’t really tell off Tolkien or meowself to be honest...they do let us get away with almost everything really!

So yes Tolkien is still as bad as he was as a kitten despite the fact that he is a lot older now and....longer too and quite big, a lot bigger actually.....To be honest and if you didn’t know Tolkien as well as I do you’d have thought from his current size that he is a formidable and scary big cat and he could have easily have hold his ground and appeared scary and mean to other creatures....especially those outside  that they keep pestering us like that annoying squirrel and wood pigeons that they keep coming to the bird feeders.... But unfortunately even that pesky squirrel and fat pigeons outside are by now well aware of the fact that Tolkien is not scary at all....to kinda think of it I don’t think that they are even scared of meowself....those pfft annoying pests....one day I’d get my little revenge.

Anymeows better go now....Tolkien is probably already somewhere pretending to be hiding waiting for me to entertain him and the hoomins bizarrely enough they seem to be busy at the moment and they are ignoring us....frustrating really because I kinda need my servants right now!

Purrs and meows till next time!

Tolkien is one year old....how time flies even when the pesky hoomins are still at home!

Trying some of that hoomin food that Tolkien seems to like....very tasty!
Yeap it is true....Tolkien is one year old... since Sunday the 10th of May....How time passes even when you don’t have fun and you have to cope with hoomins being constantly at home and getting on your nerves sometimes and being sooo clingy and always everywhere you go....well, at least the other times they can be somewhat useful…keeping your food bowl full and entertaining you when you are really bored!
So yes I couldn’t believe it when when the hoomins started talking about Tolkien now been one year old and they were also making all that fuss about it like it was such a big thing! You know it’s Tolkien after all so there was no need for all this over the top behaviour from the hoomins…you know when they often over reacting about almost everything and behaving in a rather silly way…when they keep saying things like....’oh our kitten is a big boy now....hasn’t he grown?’ Well, you know the rest…

Of course Tolkien has grown, he is not a kitten anymore, he is not weeks old or even months old anymore....now we can at last start counting in years his age and stop saying that he is just a  kitten and then let him get away with everything he does because he is just a kitten…  finally!

Here he is with his big ears...just a few weeks old...how ugly he really was then!

But and to be fair hoomins have a valid point here….he has really grown. I mean I can’t really believe how fast this year has gone....I still remember seeing him for the first time when he was a few weeks old. A rather skinny little thing with those big ears, out of proportion big legs and a massively long tail....he looked like a bat with a tail and no wings....boy was he ugly! Despite his real ugly appearance though for a kitten hoomins were kept telling him how cute he was....you know they were telling all these lies because he was still quite small and he was feeling rather scared finding himself suddenly in a new home with new hoomins who although they were trying their best to make him feel at home they were new hoomins to him after all  and he was in a new and probably rather scary environment even if he was too young and stupid to care that much....He was a kitten after all and everything new after 5 minutes is exciting and worth investigating....oh to be young and that stupid like Tolkien once was again! (You can read al about the good times we used to have at home before Tolkien became a full grown pesky cat in the hoomins comic, Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon).
But he was lucky that the my hoomins adopted him and that I was of course also around....because I did feel sorry for him and also and because I’m a kind and considerate cat I’ve accepted him straight away and welcomed him into my home...
Yeap, 1 year old and still very stupid....well hidden, indeed!
Of course things would have been a lot different if I was a different cat and had decided that I didn’t want a kitten to invade my home....after all kittens can be hard work to train and teach them how to be proper cats and not all cats can take a youngster under their paw and try to train him the ways of a cat like meowself....you know to be a responsible cat that knows how to look after himself and his hoomins of course!
Tolkien on the other hand was never the easiest kitten to teach anything at all....you know how some kittens can be....no brains and very stupid....yes Tolkien always had been a kitten with no brains who thinks that everything is a game and would try everything and go everywhere and get everybody else (well usually meowself of course) into trouble. So and despite all my efforts and to some extend hoomins too he never really learnt anything really despite all our efforts and he would always somehow manage to get into some kind of trouble which of course it was never my own doing....
We kinda hoped of course that as he would get older he would start at least learn some basic cat skills like for example how to cover after he has been to the litter tray....but as I’ve said it before unfortunately he is Tolkien, a different type of kitten, one with no  brain it seems. So and no matter how many times I’ve shown him he still hasn’t figured out how to cover properly so I have to cover for him every time he visits the litter tray....such a disgrace for the cat race really when he can’t do even the simplest thing that a cat should be able to do....He still hasn’t figured out how to convince hoomins to feed him when they go to the kitchen….he simply just spreads himself on the kitchen floor and tries to trip over the hoomins or attacks their feet and bothers them instead of convincing them that he is really starving and he needs urgently food….hopeless, really!
Yeap,Tolkien is still Tolkien and despite the fact that he isn’t that small any more and his ears don’t look that big anymore he looks kinda cute and can be convincing if he tries the cute card with the hoomins… 
But what can you do? He is Tolkien after all and he is part of my family....like those pesky hoomins who are staying at home all the time these days. At least hoomins can be useful I guess....as for Tolkien...well he is at least entertaining and keeps the hoomins amused and meowself at times company...

So Happy Birthday Tolkien


Purrs and meows till next time

How to make the most of your hoomins now that they are at home all the time…

This one of my hoomins servants....he is very good for walkies when I don’t feel like walking meowself!

So now it has been how many weeks? Does anybody remember or care anymore? 
So the hoomins it seems that they are now here to stay for good and probably permanently at home....well my hoomins are planning to it seems anyway as they don’t have any plans for going back to their old work place anymore....they say that they would now be working from home permanently....good grief!
Well of course at first it came as a big shock to me and it took me a while, a very long while to get used to the idea of having the hoomins at home permanently all the time....As I was used to have my home to meowself (well OK and sharing it with Tolkien of course) for the many hours during the day when the hoomins were at work and doing my own thing (well you can read about our life at home and all about the good times we used to have at home in the good old days before March in the hoomins comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon) ....and enjoying many peaceful hours and saving in the meantime my energy for when the hoomins were coming home in the evening so to be ready to welcome them of course....
Tokien here is training the hoomin to feed him...crisps!
So of course and being a cat that he likes his routine I didn’t like it at all when things suddenly change. I wasn’t really totally against having the hoomins at home as they can be quite useful when you need things done and of course to also having my food and biscuit bowls constantly full but and on the other hand I didn’t like also the fact that they were always there, everywhere, watching you all the time and wanting to know where you were and what you were doing all the time....You know being so clingy and affectionate constantly....no privacy to do your own thing…you now like napping without being watched or hearing the hoomins keep saying all the time how cute you really look…those hoomins always stating the obvious, I do know how cute I am hoomins for purrsake!  
But of course and now that I have kinda got used to the idea that the hoomins are here to stay after all...well I have made the necessary changes and adaptations to this new way of life! Besides us cats are very good in adapting to new things pretty easily after all we do live with hoomins who are sooo unpredictable and changing their minds all the time!
So finally I came back to my senses…you see I’ve forgotten the one basic thing...that hoomins are here after all to serve us....which of course it means that this is after all the best opportunity  to make the most of having the hoomins at home all the time....There is no point of meowself getting annoyed and wishing that things would one day go back to be normal again. Instead I can simply turn things around and use the hoomins to do whatever I want....Besides they are so easy to manipulate…sorry I meant to convince to do what you want them to do when you need something to be done!

Of course and as each of us, cats, is unique and we all have our own special ways of doing things  we naturally use different methods to communicate with our hoomins and tell them what they need to do. Tolkien for example likes to meow or as hoomins would say ‘talk a lot’ so he does all the talking with the hoomins and meows at them all the time and funny enough they seem to understand him although they can’t really meow very well themselves despite all their terrible efforts! But and in my case and since I am a cat with very few meows....(you know I don’t believe on using meows and other noises to make the hoomins do what I want them to do....as this is such a primitive way these days and it can take a lot of time and effort sometimes to get your message across) I use a different way to tell my hoomins what I need. 
 Nope there is no need for me to meow to the hoomins....My method is very simple and effective. I only need to stand next to them or on them if necessary and then just look at them and they pretty quickly get the message...Empty bowls are no longer an issue....sitting on my favourite spot at the time I want to sit and have my snooze is no problem either (unless of course Tolkien decides to sit there first....that pesky kitten....). Of course sometimes hoomins would try their hardest to ignore meowself but again there is always another way to get their attention.... if sitting next to them or on them doesn’t work then you simply stand in front of the telly if they are watching something or on the computer if they are working....Sometimes of course hoomins might become for a short time rather vocal themselves and they’d then say some hoomins words which I don’t think that they are very nice but in the end they would eventually give in to all my demands....I’m too cute for them to resist!
Yes life has proven to be rather good and hoomins are proving to be very useful to have around all the time....they have become my purrfect servants....Of course there is still the Tolkien issue which sometimes gets in my way or gets the attention from the hoomins before meowself but he is still very gullible and easily influenced and of course he would often do what I tell him to do.....he he!

Anymeows time to go....feeling rather peckish....and I can’t see my hoomins around

Purrs and meows till next time!

Hoomins, squirrels, pigeons and even water drops...they all conspire against meowself...



Here I am trying to catch some of those pesky drops...they are as bad as hoomins and that pesky squirrel and pigeon outside and very wet too... 

So another month has just passed...apologies...really it has only been a week since my last blog entry but with the hoomins at home all the time it does feel like weeks not just days that have passed....and any cat like meowself that is would easily lose any sense of time, space, reality…when he has to spend so much time at home with the hoomins....so many things always seem to be going wrong which also makes everything else seems to be somehow out of synch!

Mornings they are now a complete and utter chaos of events...nobody knows when hoomins would get up or if they are going to get up at all anymore as both hoomins now doing the late shift it seems and they are staying very very late every night...well early morning actually which means that meowself and Tolkien annoyingly can not really have our late night play sessions anymore....well you can’t really run about in the house when hoomins are around of course and they also seem to totally ignoring you....I mean who ever heard of hoomin doing work at 2 in the morning and not even looking a bit tired or wanting to go to bed....One hoomin says that she gets more inspired at night and the other that he is not feeling really that tired so he might as well stay up and finish work....I mean this is not normal hoomin behaviour, is it now? 

I remember the good old days when hoomins use to go to bed not later than midnight because they had to get up early to go to work....which it used to work purrfect for everybody in the house, especially us, meowself and Tolkien as we then knew what time we should wake up the hoomins so we could have our breakfast....not anymore of course! Now that hoomins are going to bed wherever they feel like and they don’t have to go to work because they do work from home apparently so there is no time for breakfast for us...we have our breakfast almost the same time we have our lunch....unheard of (even if hoomins say that there is plenty of food for us as our food bowls are full…). Well hoomins that doesn’t count as morning breakfast but as late night snacking….so there! (You can read al about the good times we used to have at home before in the hoomin’s comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon).



And of course in all this chaos and disorder that is now happening it’s not just the hoomins that they have become impossible to live with....You see it seems now that most of the hoomins are staying at home and they hardly seem to go outside the birdies and other small animals like pesky squirrels for example outside are becoming as bad as the hoomins inside; very very annoying....I mean you now have all these fat wood pigeons coming into the bird feeders and acting  like they are going into a public restaurant, not bothered or seem to get scarred of hoomins or even us...meowself and Tolkien...even when we try to scare them away. Tolkien and meowself were trying the entire morning to scare that fat pigeon of the bird feeder away with no success whatsoever...he was just staring at us....while kept pecking away like we were not there…unbelievable!

As for that pesky squirrel….he is the worst of them all as he is now coming not only to steal the birdies food but also to try to intimidates us as well. He just sits outside by the window and stares at us....it looks like he tries to scare us (and the hoomins too) off so we can let him nibble away in peace without distracting him....the nerve of that squirrel.
I’m telling you hoomins been at home all the time is not a good thing at all...Birds, squirrels and other creatures outside are becoming too brave and don’t seem to care about hoomins or cats being inside watching them anymore because they seem to know that they are quite safe outside now...

I’m telling your this is becoming a very stressful life for any cat like meowself to cope with and I think than I need to take some kind of holiday away from my hoomins and pesky squirrels and pigeons and Tolkien of course....I need to have some time to meowself where I can snooze and do some water drop catching in the sink in peace without being disturbed all the time by hoomins or Tolkien or that fat pigeon on the bird feeder who is also sooo noisy too trying to fit in that small bird feeder....well this is what happens when a fat bird eats too much it seems.

Now and talking about eating too much I don’t think that is the case with meowself anymore no matter what my hoomins are saying as now it seems that I do miss meals when hoomins are not awake so and therefore I do eat a lot less....and no I do not compensate later in the day by eating Tolkien’s or even the hoomin’s food... most definitely not. Although I must admit that those new biscuits hoomins recently got are very tasty....

How to survive hoomins at home...the cat edition

Here I’m relaxing after a hard day at home with hoomins of course!
Well they have been now many many weeks since my hoomins and I’m also guessing many other hoomins out there since there seems to be hardly any hoomins to be seen outside that they’ve decided to copy us and become permanently indoors hoomins....and it feels a lot more than just a few weeks in reality....but that’s another story!

So after all these many weeks with hoomins hardly going outside other than short walks or what they call ‘emergency shopping’ I’ve decided that just hoping that one day things would go back to normal and my home would again become meow home (OK and Tolkien’s too...some of it anymeows) is not going to happen any time soon so it is better to just accept the fact that hoomins are here to stay ALL THE TIME and instead start behaving accordingly.
You know if you can’t beat them just annoy them as much as you can...after all hoomins are capable of tolerating anything would do....because they are gullible and I must admit stupidly caring hoomins.

So I’ve decided to stop getting annoyed with hoomins being at home all the time and instead to try and make the most of the current almost impossible situation we are all in….
You know doing things a bit differently like if they don’t want to get up in the morning then they is just fine by meowself and Tolkien…we simply change our daily routine as well so I then just sit on top of them and wait till they do get up....I’ll sit of course on both hoomins so they don’t feel neglected after all and I’d let Tolkien to do all the meowing and running around the house and playing with the bedroom curtains till hoomins of course get eventually the message that is ridiculously late and that is time for them to get up!

One of Tolkien’s  apparently relaxing position...sooo many legs hanging here!

Then and since of course they are at home all the time it is only natural for me to demand attention when I want attention which is usually when hoomins seem to be doing something they consider important like working in front of the computer or watching some interesting programme....there is always a good way to get their attention of course....either climbing on the desk and knock over things on the floor or have Tolkien doing his daily exercises by running and jumping on hoomins and in front of the telly when they do watch something...sometimes I’d join in the fun but most of the times Tolkien’s attempts are quite sufficient....Of course if this doesn’t work then I’d tell Tolkien to do some of his meowing....and he is very good at it....hoomins can’t simply ignore him no matter what they seem to be doing....he is sooo convincing and he still sounds like a kitten in distress...purrfect way every time to get hoomins’ attention (he is a not of course that intelligent or seems to understand why he needs to meow...Yeap he is a lot worse than he appears to be in the hoomin’s comic....Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available to download on Amazon).
Unfortunately I’m not very good with this meowing business but I can play the cute card instead by showing my belly and rolling around which also works very well with hoomins as they’d give me the attention I want if I need it of course....If I need some feeding climbing on the kitchen countertops works usually pretty well especially it they are working there too doing some cooking or baking...just walking up and down along with Tolkien works well and they soon get the message…Yeap my hoomins are very well trained…all my efforts all these years seem to have paid off after all!

So it seems that  things can work in our favour after all....having hoomins at home all the time can have some benefits....we just need to be persistent and not to let them ignore us when we want attention and feeding of course....and most importantly not to give up with their daily training now they are at home and keen to be trained and learn from us!

Purrs and meows till next time...hopefully I’d have trained my hoomins a bit more by then!

About such silly things as bullying and any other false accusations that you might have heard....

See? When you need one there is no one around to entertain you! So here we are again, at the start of another month, the first summer...
