|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!
Purrs and meows till next time!!!
