The battle with the squirrel outside has ended...the battle with the rest of his family has just started!


Yeap that pesky squirrel is totally ignoring me again!

Well OK, maybe I’m exaggerating a little here as things perhaps are not as dramatic in reality but that annoying squirrel outside has been nothing else but a real nuisance with his continuous visits to the bird feeder. He is sooo annoying! I mean he’s been coming for months now and he is stealing all the food from the bird feeder on the window and he’s totally ignoring all our efforts to make him stop visiting and to try to scare him away. He appears to be not afraid of anything and anybody....meowself included, Tolkien and even the hoomin! We have tried everything we could (other than stop putting food in that feeder  which of course it wouldn’t be fair to all those poor hungry birdies outside who they like and need their food now that is getting cold and it’s harder for them to find any food out there). From Tolkien climbing, scratching frantically, meowing at him and even jumping on the window (and knocking over all the hoomins’ plant on the window sill in the process) to even meowself starring at him menacing (yes I can be menacing if I want to and I can look like a ferocious cat if I decide to be one....hoomins would tell you how scary and mean I can be....I tend to bite the hoomin’s nose and fingers when I get annoyed and growl at the other one....but I do admit though that I don’t really like been mean and I can’t really be aggressive to my hoomins because I like my hoomins not because I can’t be one of course to be clear....as for Tolkien, well... he is too stupid to even release that I’m being mean to him 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). Even hoomin’s attempts to scare him don’t seem to work at all and when my hoomin knocks at the window that pesky squirrel just ignores him and he even looks rather annoyed for being disturbed while he is eating....the nerve of that squirrel I’m telling you...

That stupid Tolkien thinks that I’m still hiding under the chair’s cover!


So and after all this time we have now got used to see him on almost daily basis coming and eating without showing any signs of fear or care really. My hoomins keep saying that he is rather cute really (which is an opinion that I don’t share meowself as I’ve found him rather annoying instead) and since there is no real harm in him eating the bird food there is no real reason to try and stop him. So it seems that now he is allowed to do what he wants….which again I don’t agree with as I believe that he is not only coming to steal food but he also to try and annoy us on purpose! 

But I guess that if it was just  him that we had to deal with things wouldn’t be so bad. But unfortunately now it seems that things are getting even worse as he’d started to bring along his family members as well. So this morning we’ve noticed that there were two squirrels outside, our old enemy of course along with a new younger one who it seems was also trying to get into the feeder. Of course being quite young and stupid (he kinda remind me of somebody else that lives here....and he is rather long and stupid too) he couldn’t really figure out how to get to the feeder like the other one does. So and after a few failed attempts he then decided that it would be a good idea if he instead started collecting some stones from under the window where the feeder is and then bury them… I mean how stupid that squirrel was...there was plenty of food under the feeder to collect if he really and desperately wanted something to bury...He kept doing it for a while and meowself, the hoomins and even Tolkien were ended up watching him and hoping that in the end he’d eventually realised that he was just burying stones and not nuts....in vain!

Well I guess there are out there stupid squirrels too and not just stupid Tolkien....I really hope that no other members of that squirrel family make any appearance any time soon so to try and steal the birdies food from the feeder because I’m not so sure that I can cope with that constant noise and distraction outside....or that we can afford to have any more of our stones being buried! Besides they tend to scare the birdies too.


Now and talking about that stupid Tolkien.....well that overgrown kitten he is such a drama queen that he makes it almost impossible to play with him any more as he always causes so much trouble! You see he has now got this bad habit of making stupid kitten like noises, not even proper meows really more like pathetic cries every time we play chase and fight so he sounds like he is been seriously attacked by meowself and that I’m hurting him. He does that even when I’m not even playing with him and I’m not close enough to even touch him! Something of course that now even the hoomins have figured out that he is doing it on purpose  and which of course has started to annoy them as and when they come to his rescue they can then see that he is not in any harm anymeows… So we can’t really play anymore as the hoomins now tend to interfere and try to stop us so Tolkien can’t do his ‘crying baby’ routine....he is such a crying kitten really that he spoils all the fun a cat can have! 

He should have known by now that kitten meowing is only meant for the hoomins as they can’t resist it and they would then give in to all of our demands a lot quicker....and not for playing with meowself.....Oh well at least he is not burying food and biscuits under the carpet....well at least not yet.


Anymeows better go now as Tolkien is finally awake and hoomins have already gone to bed so maybe and hopefully we can then have a little play time without any interferences....I doubt it of course as he is after all Tolkien!


Till next time 

Purrs and Meows!

Hoomins sometimes can be sooo difficult to train....it seems!

Watching hoomins doing exercising without my assistance is sooo...painful!

So another week has just passed and as far as I understand it all hoomins are still indoors as we don’t see many walking outside and they are still a lot of birdies and stupid squirrels outdoors instead, which is always a good thing of course!

You know by now that we have (mostly meowself and Tolkien that is) a squirrel problem with that pesky one that he keeps coming to steal the birdies food (there are many pictures available of his terrible behaviour of course that show how bad he really is) and who doesn’t seem to be taking any notice of us or even the hoomin when we are trying to scare him off. Nope he never seems to take any notice no matter how hard Tolkien always tries to get him...because that pesky squirrel is quite clever (a lot clever of course than Tolkien) and he knows that Tolkien or even the hoomin can’t really get to him because they are inside and he is out there! But now and rather annoyingly he has also started bringing his family too and some of his family members especially some of the younger ones don’t seem to be as clever as he is as they seem to be gathering instead of bird food or nuts small stones which they even appearing to try to bury them outside. A behaviour of course which seems that Tolkien finds very interesting and even for his own standards rather bizarre...


Of course watching squirrels outside it’s not the only thing that I’m spending most of my time doing all the time (unlike Tolkien 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) as I also need to keep an eye on my hoomins inside as well especially now that they are at home all the time and they are often doing things that they need a bit of assistance from meowself (you know how hoomins are…not capable of achieving anything really by themselves). But unfortunately this past last week has proven to be a rather strange week after all as the hoomins have kept themselves very occupied with their new gadgets/toys which they’ve just recently got and as a result they’ve also seem to have forgotten that we do still exist....But I guess it was to be expected they were due this time of the year to get some new toys after all and if those toys seem to make them happy, well…they are then allowed now and then to be a bit forgetful....and rather obsessive perhaps for at least a little while! After all all they have been working rather hard all this time and they do deserve to have some new toys to play with! But of course and if this obsession does last any longer then I might have to take some drastic action to bring them back to their senses and to remind them of their duties....you know I don’t like being ignored and being replaced by a small bright object that makes some strange noises and which hoomins seem to be holding in their hands all the time now! It is like that film…their precious rules them all!


That lazy Tolkien showing off again...ooh look how long his leg is!


Another thing that I’d like to mention here is also how difficult is is still to train your hoomins even after all this time so you can make them to understand what you are trying to tell them in our very subtle way....like for example when you want to make your hoomin  move from your sofa because there is not enough space to stretch your tired and weary paws! It’s not after all the biggest sofa and a cat and a hoomin can’t really fit in a two seater sofa especially when the cat mentioned needs his own private space that is so he can stretch a bit. Nope, my hoomin doesn’t seem to be understanding that I want her to move from my sofa even when I keep pushing her with my paws and claws, very gently of course, so she can move.....she just keeps ignoring me which of course won’t do....after all it is my sofa and I need from time to time to be left alone to stretch there all by meowself....after all she can always sit on the floor of course if she wants to!


Yes sometimes it can be really frustrating trying to make hoomins understand what you want them to do like for example when you want them to share their food on their plate with you....I’d usually just sit next to my hoomin and then I’d have to use my paw to get my own portion from the plate otherwise she won’t give me any of her chicken or fish....she would eat it without sharing with meowself or Tolkien (OK she doesn’t really have to share with Tolkien if she doesn’t really want to!


Hoomins can be such a hard work some times but there is not much that you can do really other than keep trying to train them the right way! At least they are at home now so you can spend enough time to teach them what they really need to learn so they can share our home with us!


Anymeows better go now as it is time to entertain Tolkien now that hoomins have gone to bed.

Yeepee! No hoomins outside again…and the birdies are all back!

Yes I like watching TV and guess which is my favourite programme...

So here we are again, a brand  new week has just started and a very nice week it is being promised to be...Well and as I was saying last week I’ve heard my hoomins talking about all the other hoomins becoming indoors only once again. You know like it was back in the spring because things are not going very well again. Something which I believe it is a very good thing for both hoomins and cats as well as for all the other creatures outside of course. You see I strongly believe that it would do a lot of good to hoomins to be indoors now that the weather is changing again and it gets rather cold outside. Who wants to be outside when it is cold, windy and rainy? Not any hoomin that I can think of or cat for that matter of course! Besides it is a lot safer to be inside these days especially when hoomins can do their work from home where they can have the best assistance they can ask for, us, cats of course. Everybody knows by now that we are and have always been a great help to all our hoomins. My hoomins think so anymeows....although I must admit sometimes it can be a bit adventurous when you are trying to assist your hoomins when they are doing exercising as they don’t always pay as much attention as they should and accidents can happen....which accident by the way it was not my fault in anyway....the hoomin should have paid more attention and she should have been aware of meowself standing behind her so she should have avoided falling on the ground...unexpectedly....it was the hoomin’s fault entirely!


Anymeows back to what I was saying earlier about all the other hoomins that they are staying indoors now and how good this is not only for them but also for the other small and bigger creatures outside as they can now have the entire outside world to themselves again. Which also means of course that a lot more birdies are coming again to the feeder so meowself and Tolkien can observe them without being disturbed by passing hoomins (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).


Stupid Tolkien is trying to hide again....pathetic!


Of course there is still that pesky squirrel who is keep coming to steal the birdies food from the feeder and who now has become totally unafraid of meowself and Tolkien despite all our attempts to scare him away as well as of my hoomin when he is trying to get his attention by knocking on the glass....nope that squirrel is not paying any attention at all or showing any signs of fear. I think that any day now he would knock at the front door and ask from my hoomins to let him into the house because it is getting too cold to be outside....the nerve of that pesky squirrel!


Oh well he can be annoying at times I guess but and at the same time it is also quite entertaining to watch Tolkien scratching at the window and trying to get to him....poor Tolkien.


By the way and despite what hoomins are saying I would like to once again try and clear my good name and to assure you that despite what my hoomins might say about meowself I’m not a bully and I’m not really bullying Tolkien when we are playing....we are only having a bit of fun and as I’ve said it before Tolkien can be such a drama queen sometimes and he likes making a lot of noise and acting like I’m trying to kill him or something....He is only faking it so hoomins wouldn’t be surprised when after his little performance they then find him asleep on the bed having forgotten all about the last attempt to his life by meowself....yeap he is only pretending....

Besides I’m not a violent cat and even when I occasionally might nibble on the hoomin’s nose and cheek is only out of affection, my own special way to show to my hoomin how much I care....I don’t really bite....I’m just being a little playful and affectionate to my hoomins!


Anymeows better stop now as it is getting late and I can hear Tolkien calling me as it is time for our late play session which I can assure you it would be as always very innocent and no biting or fur pulling would be really taking place....


Purrs and meows till next time!

It’s not all about Tolkien you know...

Here I’m trying to have some time to meowself...dealing with hoomins and Tolkien can be very exhaustting you know!

Here we are again another week has just started and what week this might prove to be for many hoomins that is...maybe for us, cats too perhaps.

Anymeows I would like to meow a bit about the previous week though which I don’t really think that it was the best week for meowself that is. I mean we had a black cat day and Halloween all in one week...how bad could it have been?  

Now don’t get me wrong I don’t think that black cat day is a bad day in anyway...any cat day is a good day and every day in the hoomins’ calendar should be a cat day in my opinion. Actually and now that I’ve thought about it I think that we should have every day of the week as a cat day...you know Monday as ginger cats day for example then Tuesday for tabby cats, black cats day let’s say it can be another day of the week of course and we’d also have two days, let’s say Saturday and Sunday for black and white cats like meowself because there are many black and white cats out there and not enough appreciation it seems as hoomins prefer all other colours than the best ones that they can have, a combination of black and white! You know you are having the best there is the yin and yang in one cat...purrfection some might say! Yes celebrating cats every day of the week I think it is something that it needs to become law by the hoomins so they can show their appreciation for all of us and all the great things that we do everyday for them!


But anymeows I’d say it again that it’s not that I do mind having a black cat day as long as of course there is also a black and white cat day too. What I do mind though is the fact that unfortunately Tolkien is also a black cat himself which it means and as a result he gets too much attention by the hoomins because of these silly days including Halloween of course and all this attention it seems to be making my own life a misery…by himself getting rewarded for just being stupid and oh yes black too, pfft (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)!

You know of course that I don’t really mind having Tolkien around despite the fact that he is too stupid to be a cat...but and despite all of his faults he has also his uses especially when you want to entertain yourself or get away with sometimes let’s say things that they might not always go according to plan....

What I do mind though is and during those special days including his birthday of course the fact that the hoomins are making too much fuss about him and then he gets a lot of unnecessary attention and a lot of that nice food that normally would have ended up in my own bowl...Besides Tolkien is too stupid to understand why hoomins are especially nice to him...he doesn’t even notice that he gets more attention than usual....that stupid he is, really!


Tolkien is really obsessed with that squirrel!

I’m not saying that I’m not getting any attention from the hoomins of course it’s just that he seems somehow to always manages to get that bit extra which I don’t think that he really deserves....after all it’s meowself that does all the hard work needed and the one who plays always the very cute part and the one that has to always remind them to fill up those empty bowls and to of avoid starvation ...if it wasn’t for my great skills we’d have spent a lot of time having empty bowls which believe me is a very bad thing when you are a cat!

And what  about Halloween and black cats? Why hoomins wanted Tolkien to pose next to the pumpkin and not meowself? I’m the cutest by a long shot...Tolkien is just cute not the cutest! Unacceptable! Hoomins should be taking photos of meowself only and not of Tolkien...he is not very catogenic in the photos you see!


Anymeows at least black cat day and Halloween are now over and we can at last go back to some kind of normality....Oh yes and before I forget. I’ve also heard some really good news which kinda cheered me up after that awful last week. Apparently all hoomins now have to stay indoors again and not go outside as they were doing recently.....which means that my own hoomins they’d also cut down on their outings and of course now again it means that they’d be again more birds and pfft squirrels too outside than hoomins to watch from the windows...ha ha! I prefer the birdies than the hoomins passing by you see! It’s about time that hoomins restarted spending some quality time again with their cats at home I say as it seems that they were spending far too much time outside unnecessary I think. Besides now it’s getting a bit too cold for the hoomins to be outdoors anymeows…



Well that’s all for this week.

Till next time purrs and meows!

The problem with Tolkien is...he is too stupid to be a cat!

Tolkien in one of his bad attempts to hide

So here we are again, another week has passed and Halloween is fast approaching although and given the current circumstances it doesn’t seem that it’s going to be such a big thing like another year that is...well according to my hoomins of course! Which I do think that it is rather unfortunate as I like the hoomins’ holidays and celebrations as there always seems to be a lot of food around which quite often hoomins tend to leave around....let’s say around without paying too much attention! 

Yeap holidays are always a good thing for meowself that as there are always things that need to be done and I don’t mind helping the hoomins with all their preparations....they always need a helping paw during those festive times! Now and as I was saying last week because I’ve spent a lot of time with the hoomins since there are permanently at home so and as a result I have also picked a lot of the hoomins’ habits and I consider meowself to be part hoomin too so I’m always trying my hardest to assist the hoomins wherever I can. You know always giving a helping paw to make the hoomins life a bit easier…wherever I can that is of course like work, exercising, housework, etc, etc. 

 But unfortunately and as you already know it’s not just meowself at home with the hoomins....there is also Tolkien who is now a full grown cat and who can’t seem to be stoping from growing and growing.... (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). 

 He has become so big that hoomins are finding it really hard to even picking him up. Which of course proves my point what I have been saying all this time...Tolkien is not a cat after all. I don’t know what he is but he is most definitely not a cat. 

An example of Tolkien being too big...he can’t fit in the hammock anymore!


You see not only he doesn’t look like a cat but he is not acting like one either! I have tried my hardest all this time to train him to act like a cat at least to some basic level but it has been all in vain. He has never shown any inclination to learn anything at all. Well OK and fair enough he does meow and eats cat food (although this is not always the case...well…OK and perhaps for both of us anymeows) and uses the litter tray but he still hasn’t learnt how to cover after he has been to the litter tray and I bet he’d probably given the chance use the hoomins toilet instead but other than those few things he doesn’t do anything else that can identify him as a cat. 

Yes I do know that he is not very clever and some might even say that he is rather stupid but even his stupidity shouldn’t stop him from acting in some ways like a cat. Well I knew from the very beginning when I first saw him that he wasn’t a normal kitten....not with those big ears and long tail! Not normal at all! Then it came his obsession with always being on high above ground surfaces especially the top of the doors and cupboards...no cat can spend so much time high above the ground....then there is his strange obsession with no cat food...he likes some of the most peculiar and not so nice tasting hoomin foods like marmite, crips and other salty type of snacks and food and he doesn’t like ice cream and cheese or spaghetti which as you know is my favourite....

Then there is his other obsession with strange objects like the hoomins’ phones which he likes sniffing or objects that they don’t make much sense in playing with such as cat litter...if he sees a piece of cat litter on the floor he gets really excited and spends a lot of time playing with it....why oh why? Where is the fun with playing with a piece of cat litter? Can anyone tell me? As for the way he likes sitting and sleeping....well again it’s so strange as he likes hanging from tops and surfaces...Well he is quite big I admit but this is not a good reason for always hanging...he is not on the top of a tree you know! Even when you try to play with him he doesn’t seem to be following any rules...he has no idea how to hide when we are playing hide or seek or how to find for that matter...he always makes squeaking noises when we having little wrestling games and then the hoomins always think that I’m bullying him or pulling his fur....which by the way because he has a lot it always comes loose on the carpet without any effort from my part whatsoever I’m telling you! 

He doesn’t know how to get attention from the hoomins instead he acts like a meerkat when the hoomins trying to give him attention or he would expose his many nipples to the hoomins for no apparent reason. He also doesn’t know how to get food from the hoomins either...he just sits there and the hoomins simply ignore him...if it wasn’t for meowself he would have starved! He is totally hopeless...I’m telling you, no way he is a cat...I don’t know what type of creature he is but definitely he is not 100% cat...some other type of inbreeding has taken place here which makes him a strange creature...part bat perhaps part alien! I guess it is a good thing that now that is Halloween he is staying indoors (as we are after all indoors only like the hoomins are now) so he won’t scare the few hoomins and other cats outside...I don’t think that any hoomins could cope with Tolkien outside even if it is Halloween...he would be too much for them! 

Anymeows better go now....things need to be done and hoomins need my assistance.

 Purrs and meows till next time!

Are hoomins really such a bad influence to us, cats?

Here I’m looking for that pesky Tolkien again...he has no brains that cat!

Once upon a time, you know a long long time ago, well before I’ve adopted my current hoomins I was a totally different cat. I think that I was that is. I won’t say that my life was better then....it wasn’t! Well I don’t really remember much because it has been such a long time since those days but it seems to meowself that my life then couldn’t have been as good as it is now because my then hoomins didn’t really like me or wanted meowself to stay with them as they simply abandoned me with not much of a thought!


Anymeows I won’t go again back to these sad details of my previous life you know how it was and why I was abandoned and ended up in one of those shelters....It all belongs to the past now and it’s totally forgotten by meowself. Sad and bad memories…


What I want to mention here is that I believe that in those days I was a totally different cat....you see I think that I was more of a cat than I am today even if this sounds strange and even perhaps absurd!

I mean I believe that now I’m a totally different cat than in those older days....no, no I don’t mean physically, I haven’t changed that much....I’m a little older perhaps and a lot more wiser than I’ve used to be and most definitely not any bigger or fat....I do admit that I’m enjoying my food and biscuits quite a lot but and at the same time I also know how to keep my weight under control despite all these nasty rumours that they might be going around about meowself being fat....perhaps a little bit more bigger but in a good way…


No I don’t mean when I’m saying that I have changed that there have been any big physical changes as I’m still the cute and very handsome boy I’ve always been. What I mean is that there have been mentally and psychological changes that I have emotionally changed...I have become more evolved and mature intellectually....you know I feel more closer to my hoomins than perhaps other cats that they don’t spend so much time with their hoomins (Tolkien is not included because he is not or has ever been a cat... 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). 


Not a minute peace with Tolkien checking everything I do!

You know there are times that I think that I’m more hoomin than those hoomins at home now...I have picked so many of their behaviours, in a good way of course that I have started feeling like a hoomin too. You know by exhibiting such behaviours like the hoomins do...for example I have started enjoying more and more some of their food. One of which is eating spaghetti especially from my hoomin’s plate....it’s so tasty I can’t seem to have enough of it…I also like crisps, marmite (yes I know I’m becoming like Tolkien it seems…unfortunately but there are some things that they are too good to ignore even if Tolkien is involved too), etc.

I also enjoy you know the comfort and warmth of some of their hoomins’ clothes like their jumpers which are so much comfy and cosy for sleeping and zooping these days. It’s so nice to sink your paws into such a soft material and then have a nice snooze!

Of course I also enjoy the company of hoomins and I love helping them with any task they do like doing like working (there is always so much paperwork to go through and sort out for them) as well as doing exercising with them and then helping them to do all these difficult poses and exercises correctly...(I do some exercising meowself too but it usually evolves chasing Tolkien around the house and try to help him keep fit like I do with the hoomins).


I also enjoy helping them with their house chores as meowself and Tolkien always make sure that there is enough mess on the floor for the them so to vacuum after.  It’s not just cleaning that I give a paw to the hoomins as there is also the cooking along with the cleaning of the plates and pots....I’m always willing to give a paw with cleaning those dirty pans ad pots when they are around without even waiting for the hoomins to start washing…I’d always make a start for them! 

I also tend to enjoy watching TV with my hoomins too...I always make sure that when they are watching I’m in front of the telly too so I can watch everything that is going on on the screen by being very close by....(you don’t want to miss those birdies that often appear on the screen of course).


Yeap there are more and more things that I like doing like my hoomins do....of course some might say that perhaps the hoomins are a bad influence on meowself and in general at cats everywhere...and that they are trying to change us into hoomins…

Well I’m not so sure really. Purrsonally I don’t think that is that bad to copy hoomins sometimes.....besides I see it as learning and becoming a better cat and of course hoomins are always going to be hoomins and they’d never going to turn to cats even if they really wanted to… But at least getting down to their level we can then try to understand them better as they are still very useful to have around....you still need them to keep your food and biscuit bowls full and to entertain you when you are bored and want some attention and pampering as there are things that a cat can’t really do or bothered to even try!


No I don’t think that they are a bad influence....it’s a good thing, it help us evolve and understand the world around us better. After all what cat really wants to be outside chasing mice and birdies in the rain and cold when she or he can be inside enjoying the good life with his hoomins....not meowself or even that stupid Tolkien for that matter.


Till next time

Purrs and meows

The disadvantages of having hoomins at home!

 

I’m just watching those silly hoomins and Tolkien being...well just silly with exercising and banana!

Here we are again another week has just passed and things are more less the same...as they have been for the past many weeks now with the hoomins at home...which I still maintain is not a bad thing after all although sometimes things can be a little boring but of course I’m not one of those cats that like to complain, you know meowself by now. But and the truth to be told there are also many disadvantages with having the hoomins constantly at home....even when you try to be optimistic and wanting to see only the good things that life with hoomins at home can bring which of course there are plenty (can’t think of all of them right now!).

But let’s be realistic as hoomins can be sometimes so difficult to live with and to tolerate especially when it comes to their many peculiarities...of course some might say that the same applies for Tolkien too who is after all a very peculiarly stupid cat!

For one though they do like to constantly criticise everything that we do even when we try to be rather helpful and considerate to the hoomins’ needs!


I have already mentioned before some of my efforts (OK and Tolkien’s too...and 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) to keep the hoomins stimulated and entertained now that they spend a lot of time indoors....but I’m, always seem to be getting criticism for all my effort by the hoomins. When I’m trying to help them with their exercising efforts for example, you know, trying to make it a bit more interesting and fun for all of us then I’ve always get from the hoomins disapproval and constant nagging! They always seem to be shouting that ‘Ozzy is on the way again and I can’t do my stretching’ or that ‘Oh Ozzy! Get out of my way!’ or even ‘Ozzy tried to trip me over again’! 

Seriously now none of these accusations are true off course....As I’ve said I‘m only trying to make exercising a bit more fun!


Also and when it comes to housework which I know that hoomins really love doing, again I’m only trying to make it for them a bit more interesting and less boring. So I make sure that after they’ve have finished vacuuming meowself and Tolkien do our part in making the place messy again by shedding some of Tolkien’s fur (he has a lot more than I do of course) on the carpet so they have something to do after they’ve finished cleaning...next time! You see if we did not do our bit hoomins would have no mess to clean and no vacuuming would be needed so they’d be bored and miserable....they need things to do of course to keep themselves entertained. Meowself and Tolkien know of course too well so we are more than happy to help by creating all the mess they need....but do we get any appreciation? Of course not we are just being accused of always making a mess and for not being considerate....how ungrateful these hoomins can they be?

That pesky Tolkien with his precious banana...it’s not even in ring size!


And of course it’s not just the hoomins that they are strange and act in peculiar ways....there is always Tolkien too who each day he seems to be getting worse and to start developing strange habits....today for example both meowself and the hoomins caught him  sniffing and getting obsessed with the hoomin’s phone....he wouldn’t leave it alone! If he had friends I would have said that he wanted to call or meowtext his cat mates....who of course he doesn’t have. And to top it all today I’ve also caught him (and the hoomins too and I don’t think that they were very pleased) snoring rather loudly! At least now the hoomins would have somebody else to complain about the loud noises at night....maybe!


Yes I have become a very stressed cat with the hoomins and Tolkien at home and I think I could do with a bit of rest and relaxation....where is that hoomin now for that head and neck message and for some resting on that soft jumper she leaves on that sofa?


Till next time

Purrs and meows!

The ridiculous things that hoomins think that we sometimes do...all these unfounded accusations!

It’s the hoomins’ fault leaving soft clothes on my sofa...I’ve claimed what is rightfully mine!

Well here we are again my fellow cats and hoomin followers another week has just passed and things seem to be getting better...well for meowself and Tolkien at least.

You see the weather is getting colder again and hoomins once again are spending a lot more time inside and they appear to be less inclined to go outdoors frequent...this is why I like sometimes the weather in this country....because the hoomins don’t! They tend to moan a lot about it and to spend a lot more time indoors than when it is nice outside...so then I can have the hoomins all to meowself and Tolkien too 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).


Of course and as I was telling you last week there are also some annoying things, some drawbacks when hoomins are at home all the time, things that hoomins tend to do. I’m not really talking about their obsession of doing what they call work for hours and keeping themselves busy in front of their computers or laptops…oh no this is not something that purrsonaly really bothers me. After all I’m a very considerate cat and I understand that hoomins also need some time to themselves on a regular basis so I do allow them to work for a few hours a day while I’m having meowself some power naps...besides they have to entertain themselves somehow when I’m not around to entertain them or when they are not needed to keep me meowself entertained....(not Tolkien!). 


Tolkien again being very silly thinking that he is hidden! See, no brains!

Oh no their work habit it’s not the issue really. It’s the other small things that they sometimes do that bother me…such as when they’re disturbing me while I’m trying to snooze by being inconsiderate and making too much noise or deciding to do some unnecessary housework and start cleaning the house using annoying loud electric monstrosities like different vacuum cleaners (by the way why hoomins are so obsessed with vacuum cleaning and using more than one gadgets to do so? Especially the big noisy one or the one that they call robot vacuum and which seems to go everywhere in the house and which also seems to like chasing or finding you around the house….wherever you are! You can’t even be safe under the bed these days….By the way what’s wrong with having some fur on the carpet? It looks better with some of Tolkien’s fur and mine than without it I say!). You know I like to be left alone when I’m having my cat nap and not to be disturbed by hoomins or Tolkien....by the way that kitten is so  beyond any help....he is totally stupid and I doubt it that he has any brain at all....I mean the things that he does or he finds entertaining and likes playing with are sometimes beyond any logic explanation and understanding....a good example is of course his latest toy....the hoomin’s old toothbrush...which he found it in the rubbish bin and decided to start playing with it in the kitchen and making so much noise that the hoomins and meowself have to go and see what he was doing....I mean how can you play with an old toothbrush...that doesn’t make any sense at all...even for a stupid cat like Tolkien!


So anymeows and going back to meowself and the hoomins disturbing me at times when I want to snooze for a while undisturbed...It’s not like I bother them when they sleep....I don’t! But of course hoomins being hoomins they’d find things to accuse you even if you are not responsible for any of them….You see my hoomins are keep telling me that I tend to snore very loud and as a result I even prevent them from sleeping themselves or be able to listen to the TV when I’m taking my nap on the sofa...which is of course totally absurd! How can a cat like meowself snores so  loud the he makes it impossible for the hoomins to sleep or listen to the TV....Cats don’t snore hoomins they only purr….soothingly!


Then there is also of course the little matter of sleeping on the hoomins clothes when they are being left on the chairs or sofa...well I have two things to say to such accusations ...one that they shouldn’t be leaving clothes around in the house in the first place as they don’t want us to leave fur around on surfaces and secondly....well if they insist on doing it then they shouldn’t  accusing me for making use of them....it is getting cold after all and I like sleeping on soft surfaces wherever I can find them....by the way I do not do zooping either…just gentle treading with my soft paws!


Also and not that I’m taking Tolkien’s side on this matter but again it is hoomins’ fault as they shouldn’t be leaving paperwork on desks, chairs or  any other easy to get to areas as Tolkien would find them and chew them as per usual....so the hoomins shouldn’t blame Tolkien it’s their own fault after all....Tolkien is being simply Tolkien and he would chew anything that he can find....well if it looks like paper, cardboard or plastic that is....although hoomins are quite good at hiding plastic from him these days!



It’s all their fault really... they only have themselves to blame!

Anymeows better go now as the neighbour’s cat is outside again watching the next door neighbour’s cats sleeping on their hammock by the window....that poor cat is so jealous of us...she is always watching us and wanting to be indoors like us it seems!



Till next time 

Purrs and meows!
