|Here I am trying really hard to be cute for the hoomin...hard work!|
You know I often hear how good today cats’ life is and how ungrateful sometimes we appear to be and I get really....let’s say frustrated from such inaccuracies and misconceptions when it comes to how we spend our days at home.
You see life at home for a cat who shares his home with hoomins and perhaps with another cat as well isn’t really that easy and care free as hoomins describe it to be. It can be really hard and very hectic some days as there are always a lot of things that they need our supervision and also interference so they can be done by either ourselves or even our hoomins!
Us, cats, you see we don’t really spend all our hours in a day either sleeping or sitting in front of a big or small screen looking at it and occasionally type a few words and then pretend that we are working and then that we are and as a result of all the ‘hard working’ really tired in the evening....After all spending a lot of time in front of a screen is not that tiring or can be considered as actually doing work, especially now that the hoomins are always at home and they don’t have to go outside to go to work to do work anymore....What they do is really nothing as any cat or kitten probably could do it in half the time the hoomins are taking to finish what they are supposedly doing....pfft hoomins work...kitten’s play really.
Of course it is also true that now that hoomins are at home we don’t really have to wake them up in the morning as we’ve used to do before so they weren’t late for work but even so there are still a lot of other things that we still need to do so to keep things going on a daily basis. But I’m not going to mention today the things we normally do for the hoomins as this subject has already being mentioned a few times before with a lot of details.
No, today I’d like to mention all the other things that we often end up doing during the day and which things can be really hard work even if hoomins don’t seem to realise how hard we are really working.
You see cats like meowself are looking after not only their hoomins but also other cats at home like Tolkien for example which of course it means that I tend to spend a lot of meow time not only looking after them and caring for them but also trying to entertain (both hoomins and 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).
Also do you know how much energy I spend every day trying to be as cute and cuddly as my hoomins want me to be and also chasing around Tolkien so he gets entertained so doesn’t bother the hoomins? Well I can tell you then....a lot.
|Tolkien here trying to cope with two of the squirrel family!|
Then there is the management of the wild life outside now that the number of our visitors to the bird feeder has increased and we get up to four squirrels per day visiting the bird feeder as well as of course the great number of different birds who have now started visiting as well. Actually it is quite entertaining watching that fat squirrel throwing on the ground all the bird food from the feeder and all the birdies on the ground below eating what he is throwing away....from black birds and wood pigeons to sparrows and that scary robin who appears to be quite a bully and who he seems not to like the younger squirrel and tries really hard to chase him away. Meowself and Tolkien spent a lot of time everyday watching the show outside with the birdies and the squirrels trying to keep some harmony to all that chaos while also trying to keep an eye on the hoomins inside as well as we don’t want them to do things without meow permission. Yes it is really hard work.
Of course trying to keep the hoomins away from my favourite snoozing spots can also be sometimes hard work as they always go back and you have to then convince them that they need to move as sometimes they just seem to try to ignore you....Of course both the sofas and the chairs in the living room are my snoozing spots as well as the bed at night time....Tolkien sleeps on the scratching spot and hoomins can have the entire floor....Fair is fair you see.
And then let’s not forget the dinner times which again hoomins have to often been reminded so they can fill up the empty bowls....they always seem to be forgetting especially when it comes to the biscuit bowl which is usually empty because Tolkien always eats all the biscuits...Tolkien and not meowself of course!
As for the litter trays....well I do expect from the hoomins to keep them clean and tidy for us and not to need to be reminded....they can do something at least for themselves...
Yes life for a cat indoors can be rather hectic at times especially with the hoomins at home who constantly are needing to be reminded to do their duties and of course Tolkien too who sometimes can be worse than the hoomins.
Well I guess at least the hoomins are around to be reminded so this is something to be grateful for and which can make meow life a little better....
Now what was that the hoomins said earlier about Christmas decorations? Must investigate.
Purrs and Meows till next time!
