The uses and purpose of hoomins in a cat's life...

The purrfect spot for a little snoozing away from that horror story Tolkien!


You know now that it has been quite a while having the hoomins at home all the time I’ve started to realise more and more that hoomins sometimes can be really useful. You know that they do have some purpose and usefulness after all. I mean don’t get me wrong I like my hoomins and I’m glad that they are sharing my home with meowself and that horror story Tolkien but sometimes and because of the way they are and their own sometimes strange behaviours I tend to you know wonder about their purpose in this world…at times (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). 


Yes of course and as any cat would tell you they do make good servants and they are good to have around because they can make life a lot easier as they can provide you with good food, biscuits, treats and all the things that a modern cat now needs on her day to day life, no doubt about it. Although of course and in some occasions they can be totally useless especially at times when they do forget to fill up empty food bowls and leave us to almost starve or when they are coming home after being outdoors for hours with the wrong type of food or cat litter because they think that we need a change or that a change would probably do us good or because some mean hoomin called the vet has told them to do so… Yes very annoying and frustrating indeed....like it is at all likely that us cat would like to change anything at all or that we like to try something new and unfamiliar... After all I don’t tell my hoomins what to eat or I try to encourage them to eat diet food which of course it always tastes really bad! What kind of cat would I be if I was considering asking my hoomins to eat things that they don’t taste good....not a very good cat I’d say!

But luckily these unfortunate events are rather rare and the hoomins are having other good uses as well. 


Let’s not forget of course their use as soft and comfy beds especially when it is a bit too cold and you want that extra warmth. My hoomins can be at times the best bed a cat could ask for and they would hardly move while I’m snoozing....they don’t like to disturb me you see. Of course it does help that I’m quite small and soft meowself and not as big as that Tolkien who really doesn’t seem to be fitting anywhere these days, hoomins or furniture it seems with his many legs and long tail. Tonight he fell off from the top of the scratching post which is quite roomy....again! Yeap there is no hope for that cat!

 And of course hoomins are great when it comes to entertainment as they can amuse us for a long time even if they don’t want to as us cats we have our special ways to get their attention when we are bored and want to be entertained....Well at least some of us because and as you already know Tolkien is terrible when it comes to getting attention from the hoomins as he’d keep meowing sometimes really loud (which it can be really annoying trust me) or he would get on their way when they are in the kitchen and trying to cook (and it’s a miracle that they haven’t as yet stepped on his tail as he always leaves it next to their feet....but of course hoomins have by now learned how to avoid him and how to walk when they are cats around....you know to try to avoid the cat walk) or when he scratches doors and furniture to get their attention (and hoomins are not that amused either).


Tolkien is totally obsessed with that squirrel outside...he still thinks that he can catch him!


Hoomins are also good when to it comes to getting us new toys to play with although I must admit not all of their choices are really that good as they don’t seem to clearly understand what a cat considers a really good toy....for example like the right size box although Tolkien again tends to chew on them and they are not around for long for meowself to use them! But and although their choices at toys sometimes is terrible they also tend to provide us with other things in the house that they can be a lot more fun and amusing. For example excellent new places to hide and snooze like the new bed that I’ve found on the top of the kitchen cupboard purrfect for snoozing and staying away from Tolkien and hoomins...Then there is always the choice for some good old fashioned hunting around the house when the hoomins are leaving their clothes on the floor like socks for example....not only you can play yourself but also you can get the hoomins involved too when you hide them and then they have to find them....by the way hoomins are terrible it seems in finding hidden things even if they are not that well hidden and they can also get easily annoyed if they can’t find those missing items! Not fun to watch them I’m telling you!


So yes hoomins can be really useful to have around at times despite their peculiarities and their very clingy behaviour at times....You know I think that my hoomins might be suffering from what is known as separation anxiety. Which it is of course to be expected now that they are spending so much time at home with us! Not a terrible thing after all consider that they at least stay safe when they are at home. So I don’t really mind a little clinginess I guess.


Well that’s all for now my hoomins need me.


Purrs and Meows till next time!
