Patch Beanbag


Patch Beanbag

A few more photos of the cats before I go on my trip to Canada. Patch has claimed our new beanbag as her own: as you can see, she has decided that it is the premier location for lounging in comfort, while gazing out the living room windows at the world below. Unfortunately, which Iffy and Twinkle are now on good terms (will touch noses, sniff bottoms, and chase tails), Patch is still the grumpy-puss with our johnny-come-lately kitten, growling and hissing when she comes near.

Twinkle is the loungiest (for want of a better word) cat I have ever seen. She'll run, stop, and suddenly just flop down on her side as if to say Oh my, that was unexpectedly tiring, and just lounge. I've seen her raise her leg as if to groom, then stop with this Why bother? look on her face and just flop right back down to sleep. She is also the boldest - she jumps her way onto the dinner table with unstoppable determination, and will not give in to threats. Her eyes are always fixed on your food, and no amount of shouting or clapping of hands will deter her. Even more amazingly, she can be completely impervious to the spritz - last night, when K and I discovered her eating the chicken from our plates, she ignored all warnings, and when we spritzed her with the water ... just didn't react! It was as if her brain was locked on to the chicken, and simply would not accept input from other sources. For a semi-breed, she's all longkang* when it comes to food

[Longkang = drain. Street cats are often called longkang cats here. Patch and Iffy, both pure-bred longkangs, are so much more polite when it comes to dinner than Twinkle, who's semi-siamese]


Travel Bugs Jesse and Celine

K and I have finally put together those two travel bugs that we wanted. Here's a picture of our Before Sunrise-themed travel bugs. The one on the left, as you might expect, is called Travel Bug Jesse, and the one of the right Travel Bug Celine. I'll try and find the time to drop TB Jesse off in Vancouver or Calgary, and K will drop TB Celine off here: their mission will be to get to Vienna, and reunite! (with a possible sequel visit to Paris, who knows)

Love the idea of those travel bugs :) Maybe I'll get to see them one day but we haven't been geocaching in over a year and I'm not supposed to travel right now.
