|Relaxing on my favourite chair...no hoomin around!|
But as I’ve said it before hoomins are a lot like us and this is perhaps the main reason that we are getting along so well with each other...both species have many similarities. Good examples of those similarities can be seen between hoomins and cats during the weekend time of course, when hoomins spend a lot of their time at home doing really nothing and like us they spend a lot of their time snoozing and sleeping with their eyes open while keep staring at what they call the TV!
Yes, the weekend it a good time to see hoomins being themselves when they don’t have to go out for most of the day and do what they do in that place they call work (probably they spent a lot of time snoozing there as well…we know hoomins too well after all!).
So often hoomins accuse us for being lazy and not doing much all day...well guess what, this is what hoomins are doing usually during the weekends as well, copying the cats...they are just being lazy....They would usually get up ridiculously late and they would of course and as a result mess up our routine and breakfast time...so we’d then have to have breakfast really late and despite the fact that we are starving. And when they do get up sometimes very very late in the morning or at almost noon what do they do? Nothing again...they just sit in front
of the TV and watch other people chasing tiny balls for hours...till it is lunch time (at least at weekends we do have lunch, that’s some small something I guess to compensate for hoomins being so lazy at home) And what do they do after lunch? Nothing again as they carry on with their previous routine of sitting in front of the TV or if they feel a bit energetic they might read some book or do some work or their gadgets...sitting down of course....till dinner and bed time…They simply waste their day by doing nothing other than sleeping and eating…(sometimes they won’t even cook as somebody from outside will deliver their food for them so they don’t have to prepare it….so lazy, unbelievable!).
So both their weekend days usually pass without them doing much, other than sleeping, eating and some more snoozing in front of the telly....they are recharging their batteries my hoomins call it....So now you tell me how this routine is any different to that of any known cat that shares his/her home with hoomins? Why we are then called lazy and hoomins are allowed to get away with it?
When hoomins are at home all day they do act like us and the annoying thing is that they still accuse us of being lazy and not doing much all day (although I did spend quite a lot of my time yesterday watching the squirrels outside trying to steal food from the bird feeders again…at least I did something hoomins!)...dah hoomins do exactly the same, they copy us and they don’t even realise it that they are behaving like us....copy hoomins!

I guess though that we much have some good influence on them after all this time we’ve spent sharing our home with them and which influence they have not come to have realised yet has some positive effects on them.... it is a good thing though that they don’t know as there are still a lot of things that we can teach them and hoomins have proved to be very good students....
Better go now, time to remind my students about the benefits of filling up my food bowl!
But before I go to remind them about my dinner again I would like to mention here that my hoomins trying to raise money to help with our older cats vet bills as their treatments can be very expensive since insurances don’t cover older cats treatment for life (not fair really as we cat live a lot longer now and some of us need medical treatment)...so if you feel generous and you want to help you can donate here
Purrs and meows till next time!
