Living in a hoomin home sometimes can be a bit too much!

Not sure what Tolkien is doing at the moment so I’m taking a meowself moment!

You know and without wanting to sound rather arrogant as I’m a cat that always tells the truth and of course I am also very honest and therefore I can’t be really accused of being arrogant, selfish or even dishonest for that matter in anyway. But of course here I’m talking about cats honesty and not hoomins of course (as you all know too well that hoomins tell a lot of lies all the time and they are not to be trusted) I am a very kind and intelligent cat, a lot more than my hoomins of course and this has been established a long time ago....from the very beginning with our relationship with hoomins. 
But of course because I’m very intelligent this doesn’t also mean that all cats and kittens of this world are as clever or close to be clever as me....especially Tolkien. This is of course something that we had established at the very beginning when we found out about Tolkien’s peculiar ways. Well at first and since I’m very understanding cat I thought that all his peculiarities were because of his young age, you know being a kitten and not having much experience or even knowledge of basic things....but and as of course you already know things got worse as he got older....he developed a lot more of peculiar habits and behaviours that they are well very very strange and in someways someone might even say stupid....as they seem to get him in a lot of trouble most of times without me doing anything that could make things worse of course!
I mean some of his playing habits...it is of course normal for a cat to chase a ball or even a feather, string and even my favourite one, peas on the floor but Tolkien has taken the playing thing too far these days...I mean the things that he finds interesting at times and wants to play with....well I simply can’t understand him! 

That strange still kitten is just legs...maybe he is an octopus of something....
So and for the past few days he has found a new game…he seems to like playing in the shower room rolling around and playing with something that doesn't seem to have a name and which he took out from the plughole and he would not let go despite all hoomins efforts....he spends a lot of time inside the shower trying to clean it by rolling around and playing with that things (which I sincerely hope it’s not a new form of life that came out from the sewers or something…) or leave the shower for the hoomins to use it.....Then his weirdness would get worse as he would also follow the robot cleaner around and then he would pretend that he is one as well and he would start rolling on the kitchen floor copying the robot cleaner and trying to clean the floor as well!
You know sometimes I wonder why the hoomins are using that small robot cleaner (which in my opinion is a lot better that the other bigger and noisier thing that hoomins often use to clean the whole house) instead of using Tolkien in its place....well there are a lot of similarities between them after all as he is the same colour of course, black and he is very soft so he would most definitely pick up a lot of dirt especially the way he likes rolling over on the floors....you know it’s an idea that the hoomins might want to take on....and it is a cheaper solution and Tolkien then serves at least some purpose after all!

Now and since we are talking about hoomins and their gadgets I have but to mention this peculiar obsession they have with gadgets especially those ones that tend to turn on and off automatically....I mean it is so confusing! One minute it’s dark in the house and then all the sudden and out of nowhere lights are being turned on, heaters are coming to life, music plays from the hoomin’s special room (which she doesn’t let us get in there anymore because apparently we are very destructive....pfft nonsense I say!) and the house feels like it is been haunted....Can then anybody tell me what is this hoomin obsession with all these gadgets which apparently listen to another hoomin’s voice called Alexa or Siri or something similar....so peculiar I can tell you....It is a bit strange when things come on alive when hoomins are not around which at times I must also admit that they are quite useful especially when it is dark at home but at least they should come with some kind of warning and not all of the sudden....it can be unnerving at times you know!

Any meows better go now and check if that strange hoomin’s voice has somehow managed to fill up my bowl again....of course that would be an excellent trick if Alexa can do that....then who needs the hoomins, ha!

Purrs and meows till next time then!

Life with Ozzy and Tolkien...don’t think so hoomin!


I think there is a Tolkien under this cover you know...can you spot him?
Well and if you remember from last week when I was telling you how much caring, considerate and helpful around the house I’ve always been and therefore I thought that it was only fair for my poor meowself to win, you know, one of these awards that hoomins so easily give to each other and sometimes they even feel generous to give one to their animal pals as well....you know intelligent cats like meowself (I’m referring here to dogs of course as they are not that clever to deserve any award of course...I mean you only have to tell them to fetch and they get so excited and then they’d go after anything...especially sticks...what is it with those sticks, any way….so yes not very intelligent behaviour at all, in meow opinion of course). 
But of course and as you can tell from my general and as always very calm attitude I didn’t win anything because of course I was not even nominated for anything....all the awards were won...surprise surprise here, by hoomins of course and I didn’t even win the award for best cat of the year....pfft, not fair!
But naturally it wasn’t really my fault that no award arrived at my home (even not one little one for being so considerate for living with them hoomins and Tolkien...) but who else’s of course other than my hoomins who once again couldn’t be asked to at least nominate meowself for something....it’s like they believe that I’m not even worthy of an itchy tiny award, you know just to say thank you for all my efforts all these years, looking after them every single day of the year...along with looking after Tolkien of course...who is, you can say, at least a bit difficult to handle....most of the times!
But and as you well know I’m not a cat that likes to blame others for their obvious mistakes which mistakes they make all the time…I’m very forgiving (not forgetful of course) and I would not keep mentioning things that they had now passed and happened such a while ago....there is no need of course to dwell in the past..
So once again I have forgiven my hoomins for their mistakes and besides sometimes there is nothing else that you can do after all...hoomins are hoomins and they do make a lot of mistakes after all!

Yeap, Tolkien has taken all my good spots in the house and he gets away with it!

But and while I’m willing to forget the past and carry on with normal everyday life hoomins on the other hand tend to have other plans which plans I don’t really like at all. You know of course that they have become this year obsessed with healthy living and doing things that they are good for the environment and all these crazy things that hoomins often do but now this bizarre behaviour has got worse as they are keep talking non stop about downsizing and living a simple life needing not many things and also even they are now considering moving to another country where the weather is better apparently....I’m not sure what that really means but it can’t be that good if they want to move...and besides I don’t want to move or to downsize anything....I have all the things I need no less is needed....I could always do with a bit more of course since Tolkien takes all my toys and best sleeping areas so and most definitely I’m not willing to downsize on anything...us cats don’t do simple life hoomins do and that’s is that and I’m not going to change my mind on the matter…

But this downsizing business is not really the worst as hoomins as everybody knows they tend to say that they’d do things and very soon after they’d change their mind….so all this talking about simple life I’m pretty sure that sooner than later will pass….So yes this is most definitely not the worst idea the hoomins so far they had as the worst to come is this new crazy idea hoomin is now having about writing a book about meowself and Tolkien...and believe me when I say that I wouldn’t mind so much if she was just writing a book about meowself of course as I could well do with a nice biography for the world to read about my life with hoomins and Tolkien so more people then they can read and appreciate  all the sacrifices a cat like meowself and hard work of course has to put on a daily basis....No, no apparently it’s not going to be a normal book but instead she is creating a comic book where not only Tolkien and meowself look ridiculous like cartoons (we are not Tom and Jerry you know) but also and as she is making it to be a funny comic (nothing like those ones with superheroes it seems) we’d appear to be some silly rather funny characters.....How insulting! I would not tolerate been turned to a comic character and have people reading about and as she calls it my...misadventures when we are apparently rather bad and treat hoomins like they are all our slaves….such a ridiculous idea….really!
I do refuse to get blamed  for things that I have not done and which are clearly Tolkien’s work....or accused of being a spoiled fat cat….nope not meowself! I must work my hardest to change hoomin’s mind on this I think….I have a reputation which I need to keep untarnished you know!

Anymeows better go now, it’s getting really late and I feel a bit weak after all this writing business....time to visit some food bowls.

Purrs and meows till next time!

The best cat of the year award goes to meowself....naturally

You see? Very handsome! I deserve an award for best cat which they should call the Ozzy award I think!

You know I’m a little peeved at the moment with my hoomins, they can be really really annoying sometimes with all their false accusations....I’m blamed for everything around here and it’s not fair....especially when Tolkien is around too....they should blame him instead as he is the kitten after all!
You see a little while ago I was accused of being a destructive force which is destroying furniture and carpets on his path....of course this is just a big misunderstanding as I was only trying to keep Tolkien entertained....you know being still a kitten and getting easily bored so he needs a bit of stimulation...and exercise. So now and then we do a bit of running around the house (and we most definitely do not sound like galloping horses....when playing around a bit). So definitely it wasn’t me who moved the carpets in the hallway and corridor (it was probably Tolkien of course no doubt) and I wasn’t on the coffee table and messed up that cover too or the covers from the living room sofas....how could it be meowself, I’m a wise and intelligent (and let’s not forget handsome) cat and not an excitable kitten like Tolkien (well, that’s what hoomins keep saying about him, anymeows!). 

So instead of being accused for things I’ve never did I should be getting instead awards like those hoomins get for best cat of the year or something very similar (not that fussy on these details really)....I mean after all I do deserve it....Not only I’m very cute (some of my fans think that I’m a rather handsome fellow unlike Tolkien who is just OK for a kitten) I’m also very considerate and very very caring (I do look after as you already know both my hoomins and of course Tolkien....that pesky kitten, it’s all his fault), as well as helpful (I help hoomins with all their chores, especially cooking and baking when I’m always there, in the kitchen, giving my hoomins a helping paw....again Tolkien is the one who causes all the mess and does not really help). What else...let me think now....oh yes I also help the hoomins with other things like you know help them with doing the bed, moving around the carpets (even if they think that the carpets do not need moving so I help them to change their mind by doing their work for them...you know move them around a bit). I’m also helping them to get up in the morning so they don’t oversleep (I do get a little help from Tolkien of courser because after all they are two of them and one poor little me and I can’t be meowself in two places at the same time naturally). There are of course also a lot of other things that I do to help my hoomins and I’m always showing my appreciation by sitting on them so to let them give me the attention they feel the need to give to me and even allow them to touch my belly as well (which again it’s not big or fat to be clear on that).

So you see I’m not just a pretty face I’m very hard working and caring cat and I do a lot to help my hoomins and that pesky Tolkien of course while and at the same time I’m also helping my hoomins with their career you know I do the hard work like the blogging for them, I pose for them to take photos or draw nice pictures of me and also advise my hoomin so she can in return give some good advise to other hoomins about their cats as well. Yeap I work very hard and I think that I most definitely deserve some kind of award....and the best cat of the year award would do me just fine, don’t you think? You can always email my hoomin for the details...you know where to send my award of course!

Working hard with Tolkien here....investigating what’s going on outside...

Anymeows and as I’ve just proved to you that I’m a very busy cat I can’t always keep up with all these public responsibilities, you know the social media, magazines, newspapers....it’s all getting a bit too much for me so I need to cut down a bit....so no more Instagram posting for me and Tolkien anymore I’m afraid....I’ve told my hoomin that we could at least stop posting there....well my poor hoomin also needs a bit of resting and time of.....she does quite a lot work for me you see.

Anymeows better go now that everything seems to be very quiet and Tolkien is chasing a stupid pink ball around the house....time to go and check on my hoomins they have been quiet for a while now and it is almost dinner time as well!

Purrs and meows till next time....hopefully I’d have my award by then!

Hoomins sometimes can be rather frustrating to have around...

What that pesky Tolkien is up to this time? I’m keeping an eye on him and the hoomins!
You know that I like my hoomins, they are good hoomins as hoomins go and they do try to meet my needs (not discussing here Tolkien’s needs as he has far too many who no hoomins can ever satisfy no matter how hard they might try....strange kitten indeed!). You’ve noticed here of course that I’ve said that they try because sometimes I’m not totally convinced that they really want to and that they do try....yes, sneaky hoomins!

You also know of course that hoomins are not very good at keeping their promises, they often  say that they would do one thing and then they’d do something different or they’d change their mind. You know for example, when they are saying that they’d fill up your biscuit bowls when they are empty and then they don’t do it for hours and they don’t even seem to care that you have become weak and feeble and that you are at the point of starvation. Sometimes of course they even come up with the most ridiculous excuses! I mean why I should care that there are no biscuits in the cupboard. Not my problem you know, if they’ve have run out and there are no more biscuits then they should go out and buy some more....it’s their job of course, not mine!
Oh those hoomins they can be so cruel and insensitive at times! And of course I’m expecting them to get me the biscuits that I do like and not the ones that they are available or the ones that they are currently on sale!
So and for pity’s sake, who do they think I am, Tolkien? I mean that kitten these days can eat anything and he doesn’t mind or seems to care what hoomins put on his bowl or leave on their plates!

You know and as I was telling you last week Tolkien seems to be going through a strange phase in his life as he likes eating all sort of things, like chewing paper and cardboard boxes among other things....and oh boy did he eat a lot of boxes last week or what!  And the mess he made....I’ve started even feeling sorry for those hoomins having to constantly clear after his mess...everywhere....we are still finding tiny pieces of cardboard and paper these days around the house, even in hoomins’ pockets!
But it’s not that he likes paper, cardboard boxes and even plastic bags which hoomins had to keep away from him and even bought him a couple of new toys to keep him busy and distracted (it kinda work as he can easily get distracted....I’ve told you he has no brain really), oh no he now likes other stuff too! He still likes eating some of the hoomins’ funny tasting food such as that horrible black stuff that they call marmite and which smells and tastes horrible as well as hoomin’s breakfast something called oats so simple apparently and which again tastes absolutely disgusting....This week though he has developed a new obsession as he seems to have discovered crisps and he now bothers hoomins to give him some of these crisps to eat which he simply seems to  love even if he finds them a bit hard to eat... but he would lick and lick them till they are soft to eat....Hoomins of course who they don’t really like sharing their food with him try to keep him away but Tolkien can be quite stubborn of course at times and he would then try to steal hoomins’ crisps by putting his paw inside the bag when he gets the chance....yeap, hoomin not pleased at all! Tolkien likes stealing food from hoomins in general though and he would try everything that hoomins eat if they let him....
Tolkien is having a little rest after his latest massacre of boxes....that kitten!
Oh well I do blame of course hoomins for Tolkien’s bad developed habits as they let him get away with everything....he is a far too spoiled kitten....unlike meowself of course who I only get what I want and need from the hoomins without much fuss!

Anymeows and back to these pesky hoomins again who’ve deliberately forgotten to get me my biscuits...well they’ve learned their lesson this morning
while meowself and Tolkien had an early morning play session which included a bit of running and a lot of jumping on the bed while the hoomins were trying to sleep....well they had an earlier start of the day that they were planning to…
I hope though that they’ve learned their lesson now and they finally got me my favourite biscuits, Better go and check now!

Purrs and meows till next time!

Things still are not getting any better and Tolkien has developed some stranger behaviours!


I’m watching from a safe distance all the massacre that is taking place in the  kitchen with Tolkien and the cardboard box!

So here we are at the end of the first month of the new year and things haven’t improved yet or at least gone back to be as they once were (ahh the good old days of last year!)...Hoomins are still talking all these nonsenses about doing big changes in our lives and moving to new and sunny places....yeah this is going to happen, not! It’s all a strange disease, a phase as hoomins sometimes say and it will soon pass, I hope!

But the problem currently is not really the hoomins and their own peculiarities but the peculiarities that I see on Tolkien as each day it passes by and he grows up to be soon a full grown cat (good grief!). He is so strange this kitten that even hoomins seem to agree with me, even if they are still believing in fairy tales, that Tolkien is actually a handsome fellow (by the way I am the handsome fellow in this story) or a pretty cat....I mean he is not pretty at all…for starters he has the longest tail I’ve ever seen in a cat (and of course I’m comparing to my one which it’s a normal pretty tail of a cute cat like meowself). I guess though that it perhaps does help him a little when it comes to jumping in high places. Then of course there are all those nipples…so many nipples which hoomins say they look like buttons (which I guess explains why he was found the other day by the hoomins wearing one of the hoomin’s bra and wandering around in the house...I sincerely hope that this was really the only reason of course as Tolkien is already too peculiar as it is!).

Along with his normal strange behaviours which we all are familiar with by now he has also developed some new ones which they could be seen as being even worse than his previous ones....I mean he has now developed this new obsession of trying to behave like a normal cat and he is now attempting  to cover after he has been to the litter tray. You know how things are…he has been watching me and he likes to copy what I do....but as I had said it many times before he is terrible at learning anything that it can be of any use that is! So instead of covering like a normal cat would do with what there is available to use instead he is trying to cover by using the sides of the tray, the floor outside.....with no much success really, but as hoomins say at least he tries. In his last attempt he manage to use one pellet to cover....someone might say that is a start but I still believe that he is totally hopeless and he is never going to learn...sorry hoomins Tolkien is not capable and clever like meowself....it is time to accept the facts!

Yes, yes, he might look innocent and some might say even cute but Tolkien is a cardboard killer!


Then there is the other bad habit that he has recently developed and which habit hoomins are not so keen on at the moment! He likes destroying boxes and in particular boxes that hoomins keep things in....You see there were 2 boxes on the bedroom unit that Tolkien was using to jump onto the top of the door and now there are only the one...Tolkien has managed to completely destroy one of them, lid and all (and it wasn’t because I’d used to sit on them, that was a long time ago before Tolkien started using it as a trampoline of course). So the other day one of the hoomins found Tolkien with his head inside the box with all the hoomin’s CDs....hoomin was not pleased at all and he told Tolkien that he would not find any Cat Stevens CDs in there....I’m not sure what hoomin meant by that but the other hoomin started laughing!
 As for the lid of the box....oh yes it had a terrible fate as Tolkien now has a new obsession! Eating cardboard (along with paper of course)....He likes eating cardboard and making a whole mess in the process...so that poor lid had a terrible fate at the teeth of Tolkien....it ended up in many many many pieces. So Tolkien got his own box for a while before of course downsized it very quickly....
Hoomins of course they are not very keen with his new obsession as he tends to chew everything that looks like paper or any cardboard box he finds and of course and as a result he leaves a lot of mess everywhere! Nope not so happy hoomins especially since Tolkien managed to make a big mess on the clean kitchen and living room floor yesterday. Of course and to be honest this last obsession of Tolkien doesn’t really bother me that much....after all if he eats paper and cardboard that means that he doesn’t eat a lot of the food and in particular my food (although he still eats quite a lot and especially biscuits....).

Anymeows better go now....things to do and see....what Tolkien has eaten now!

Purrs and meows till next time!

Healthy living and small carbon pawprint it’s not for cats, hoomins!


Why hoomins would consider downsizing now...ideally they need to increase the size of the furniture like the sofa instead....not a lot of room for meowself and Tolkien!

Now that we are well into the new year and the new decade if you care about this sort of thing of course you’d have expected that by now things would have gone back to be normal again!
Unfortunately this is not the case, not with my hoomins at least!
You see, they don’t seem to have recovered as yet from this new year hoomin disease which seems to be very wide spread and very very contagious by the looks of it among all hoomins and apparently nobody is immune. Thank god it doesn’t spread among us, cats, pfew!
So yes my hoomins haven’t as yet recovered from this strange illness of wanting at the beginning of what they call a new year (although it is the middle of the season in reality) to start new habits and lifestyle so to improve their life (and ours apparently, like it needed any improvement anymeows...my life had been purrfect till hoomins got ill of course!). 
So now hoomins have this disease and the symptoms are their attempts to have a healthy life and to also try and downsize on everything, even on our living space....All of the sudden (which I think it is another symptom of their disease) they’ve started watching these videos on TV about these hoomin tiny houses (seriously these little houses are far too small for cats, like meowself and Tolkien….as there is not enough spaces to snooze or to do a bit running...I don’t think that there is even enough space for Tolkien to stretch on the floor his many legs and long tail....Those houses are definitely not for cats like ourselves who we love our space at home). So my hoomins and after watching far too many of these videos  they have started talking about the possibility of eventually also doing some downsizing themselves and even building one of these tiny houses in a sunny country they say to make the most of the nice weather....What is a sunny country anymeows and why my hoomins are even talking about downsizing and even moving....it’s definitely not my hoomins that they are talking all these nonsenses, it’s that awful disease I was telling you about, it’s the only logic explanation after all that kinda makes any sense!

By the way hoomins we also need a bigger cat tree too...and a few new toys perhaps!
I mean they are actually talking about getting rid of a lot of things that they don’t need or use anymore and living a simple life in a small space that it can accommodate their needs without causing unnecessary harm to the environment...And it’s not the hoomins’ stuff that is really the issue (after all they do have far too many clothes and shoes which they do not really need....they should use one nice fur coat like we do and a pair of shoes if they have to wear shoes after all). No, no it’s not the clothes that the hoomins want to get rid or the books and other things that they have no really use to me anyway that seriously worries me....What it worries me is that they even are considering downsizing by losing some of my favourite furniture...like for example our...one, two...well quite a few perhaps sofas in different rooms or those big cosy chairs and of course and very importantly my precious toys (even those that Tolkien now is allowed to use). No hoomins it is time to come to your senses! There is no need to downsize here, I need all my toys and all the spare boxes in the house along with the available paper (which Tolkien after all loves to chew and eat), cat beds and houses (even if we are not using them anymore....you never know we might use them in the distant future) along of course with scratching posts....etc. Don’t get me wrong I don’t mind it if hoomins decide to get some new toys or surfaces to climb and scratch, of course not but and at the same time I positively refuse of getting rid any of my old stuff, no way hoomins. Also and all this talking about healthy eating again and again….hoomins should know by now that  it doesn’t apply to my or Tolkien’s food and therefore there is no need for ourselves to live a healthy life…healthy life for cats, good grief whatever next! You hoomins, you can eat as much green stuff and fruit as you like (with a bit of meat and fish on the side of course) but don’t try under any circumstances to change any of my eating habits. No need, all cat food is very healthy after all....I’m an excellent example of good health and purrfect appearance....I’m not fat or even overweight despite what hoomins might think and say....it’s all under control and what it looks like a bit of weight it is actually what it keeps me warm these cold months. It’s my body’s natural way to keep me in good condition....So nothing needs to change and my carbon paw is very small and my eating habits and way of life doesn’t cause any harm to the environment....besides I’m a cat after all and not a hoomin so what harm can I do (I don’t even harm birdies or other small creatures, no need). 

So let’s hope that my hoomins would soon recover from this awful sickness and they’d go back to their old habits very very soon....before they actually do something really dangerous which would destroy my own happy and healthy environment!

Till next time 

Purrs and Meows!

Pfft! Back to normality again....nope I don’t like it and Tolkien is a very strange kitten by the way!

Oh I miss those days when hoomins were at home all days...purrfect place to snooze!
Well here we are in the second week of back to normality again and everybody seems to have gone back to their normal routine. Hoomins are going to work every day and I’m left with Tolkien during the day till the hoomins come back again, which I must admit it hasn’t been that great! I do like snoozing in a quiet house but and at the same time I do miss the hoomins being around all day, every day dealing with the bizarre behaviour that Tolkien is still exhibiting! I mean I know he is still young and he will eventually grow out of many of the things he does but still he is very strange and hard to control at times without the help of hoomins....who and by the way they are still also behaving strange themselves as well! You see they are still coming up with those silly new year ideas about changing a lot of things....I must admit though and to my relief they have at least stop going on about eating less and losing weight especially now that they are going out every day and not spending as much time at home as before. But they are still talking a lot of nonsense about changing our way of living and doing things differently, you know they keep saying that we are due for some changes, like for example getting rid of some things we don’t need any more (some of which happened to be some of my toys, which hoomins believe they are just taking space…which it is of course total nonsense. I love my toys in the box they are being kept…and you never know hoomins one day I might decide to play with some of them or allow Tolkien to look at them....). But I guess that this is another phase that they are going through, you know their way of coping with the everyday monotony of having to go to work again and not staying at home and being lazy as they were used to be during the holidays so I don’t really mind them when they talking about changes....You know nothing would ever change, hoomins like to talk a lot and do very little as they are after all quite lazy and deep down they are afraid of changes....see? Us, cats understand our hoomins better than they understand themselves, this is why we are so tolerant as well and cope with all these crazy things they decide to do...for a little while that is!
But I can cope with the peculiarities of my hoomins, when it comes to Tolkien though, well,  that’s a different story all together! That kitten doesn’t stop to surprise me as each day goes by! I mean there are a lot of things that I don’t remember from my own kittenhood that kittens might like to do and could be considered as normal for a young cat but some of the things that Tolkien does....well I’m pretty sure that no other kitten would ever do!
Yeap Tolkien loves his paper...and the mess he makes!
You see, it’s not just his bad eating habits of eating hoomin food that no hoomin or cat should be eating in the first place because it just tastes awful, like the black stuff they call marmite, yuk and not liking things like milk at all....or even ice cream (how is this possible?). Then it’s the problem with the paper, he just loves eating paper and even tries to chew occasionally the plastic bag he might spot (hoomins won’t usually let him but he would attempt to have a bite nevertheless). And now the whole corridor is covered with chewed paper....I mean what is the big deal with that paper? It tastes even worse than the hoomins’ marmite....I don’t understand his obsession and even more the mess he would make afterwards! Well, actually I blame hoomins for all the mess he has made and now you can’t even find the carpet to hide as it is their fault after all. They did let him chew that paper so I don’t feel sorry for them now that they have to clean his mess! I don’t even feel sorry for the hoomin whatsoever even after Tolkien chewed one of his drawing notepads....He has only himself to blame! He shouldn’t have left it available for Tolkien to get to it especially now that Tolkien has got a paper tooth! Yeap it is hoomin’s fault after all! Good thing though that weren’t any drawings on that notepad otherwise hoomin would have been very very annoyed!

But it’s not just Tolkien’s peculiar eating habits he is also acting very strange when it comes to some of the scary stuff in the house. He simply isn’t afraid of things that are very scary. For example he is not afraid of the noisy monster which hoomins call vacuum cleaner and which they use rather often I would say and which makes a terrible and frightening noise....So Tolkien instead of going to hiding when hoomins are vacuuming he instead just follows around and watches the hoomin using that scary monster....what a silly kitten. Then he is not also afraid of Grizzly, the scary hamster when he is on his ball and running around the house when hoomins are cleaning his house....instead he again follows him around and tries to play with him....how stupid! He doesn’t seem to understand how scary Grizzly really is....those hamsters are dangerous, you know!
So instead of being afraid of normal things that any cat should be very weary about he is scared instead of silly things like spaghetti which hoomins quite often cook and eat. You know that long stringy thingi which and to  be honest doesn’t taste that bad (better than marmite or paper some might say). So the other day and when hoomins drop one on the flood while cooking and Tolkien was close by he got really scared especially when hoomins try to show him that it was rather harmless…Instead he ran away and went into hiding...Hoomins have only to wave a little spaghetti in front of him and he would vanish from the kitchen and go into the bedroom to hide! What a scary cat....afraid of spaghetti, ha ha so funny! Strange kitten! Well at least hoomins have now found his weakness, the spaghetti, ha ha!

Better go now I need to check what the hoomins are cooking in the kitchen....you never know we might have another spaghetti incident tonight again!

Hee hee! 
Purrs and meows till next time!!!

A New Year and hoomins are still the same strange old hoomins...and there is Tolkien of course!

I’d just sit here and watch the hoomins eating less and exercising....pfft strange hoomins!
Well, and as I was saying last week, I do like hoomins holidays especially the part where hoomins spend a lot more time at home than going outside and of course the extra food and the decorations which and with a kitten at home can often provide hours of fun...Although Tolkien was a bit of a disappointment at first of course he eventually though got used to the Christmas decorations and he learnt pretty quickly how to make...well, let’s say the better use of them with the a little help from gravity and some encouragement from meowself of course!
But unfortunately and as it is with all good things holidays too don’t seem to last for too long so all the decorations came down again, rather quickly I thought and the house now looks like it used to before (a bit boring…thanks for all the cat toys I say which they seem to give a bit of a character to the house, you know they make it more cosy and lively….not messy of course!) and the hoomins have also gone back to their old routine again and they spend once again too much time outside!

It is not of course that I mind too much the fact that everything has returned to the way it was before that much, although it is a bit annoying that there are no decorations or tree anymore in the house for Tolkien to knock over or hide under the sofa, especially those round shiny balls. It is sad but it’s not the end of the world after all....it’s just the fact that hoomins now believe that things they need to also change because apparently we are now in a new year. Meowself I can’t really tell why it is a new one and not the still previous old one...I can’t see any difference really between the old and the new one!
But then again hoomins are peculiar after all and they can do whatever they want as long as they don’t get me involved in their peculiarities...
I mean that hoomins do the strangest things at times and then they seem to be regretting doing them...Take for example all that food that they’ve eaten during those festive days....quite a lot. They bought and ate a lot of food that they’d normally not eat or even consider eating just because it was Christmas and now they are complaining that they’ve spent too much money and that they’ve eaten too much and they need to go on a diet and lose weight...Which of course at first I though it was a good thing as they were worrying about themselves and they were not interested so much in meowself and my weight, in their opinion of course, issue (there is no issue here, believe me).
We are watching that pesky squirrel stealing the bird food again....this is sort of exercising...isn’t it?
So now that this new year apparently has started they are all about the new year’s resolutions and the new things that they need to do....such as eating healthy, exercising and losing weight of course!. Which and as I’ve said it before it’s fine by me as long as it doesn’t affect me in anyway....which I thought it wasn’t till they’ve started including me too in their silly plans of eating healthier....not only meowself but also Tolkien too! I mean he is still a kitten and he doesn’t have any weight issues....he is quite lean....But no, hoomins are crazy, at least my hoomins as they want us all to eat less and healthier and even and listen to this crazy idea, to exercise more....Who ever heard of a cat exercising....seriously now! A little playing and chasing with Tolkien around the house is more than enough, thank you very much hoomins!

Apparently and according to my hoomins the new year has just started! Good grief! I sincerely hope that this new year madness doesn’t last for very long and hoomins come to their senses pretty soon....otherwise I can’t see meowself lasting the whole year on this small portions and this exercising more very bad idea!

Better go now...maybe hoomins have left some crumbs in my food bowl or Tolkien’s!

Purrs and meows and a happy Meow Year to all!

Living in a hoomin home sometimes can be a bit too much!

Not sure what Tolkien is doing at the moment so I’m taking a meowself moment! You know and without wanting to sound rather arrogant as...
