It goes like this.
"Where did those
My wife is referring to the prominent red scratch marks running down my back that she had spotted as I got out of the shower.
Hold on...it's not what you think.
A few weeks ago we adopted a cat from the RSPCA. A lovely little 1 year old kitten/cat called Lily.
Now, it's been a few years (about 15) since we last had a cat, and when he passed he must have been about 20 years old. A grand old man who spent his days sleeping, and mooching food off the neighbours. We had forgotten what it is like to have a young, energetic, inquisitive, bouncy bundle of fur in the house.
To date she has...broken one of our wedding anniversary gifts.
Stolen the chicken pieces off the pizza we were just about to put in the oven.
Perfected the art of flicking her cat litter over a distance of 4 feet.
We have had to unhook her from tablecloths, curtains, carpets, cloths, towels and cushions. She even managed to get her claws stuck in her own tail when she was chasing it around.
Despite shouts, loud hand claps, blowing in her face and even spraying with misted water, she insists on walking on every horizontal surface in the house, and I spend a lot of time wiping down work tops and table tops.
Her latest trick is to jump onto my back when I'm bending down, hence the scratch marks as she claws her way up. My wife was sceptical, until Lily did it to her this morning.
Hi Ojisama here.
I am a recent member of advancing years, and this is my first Journal.
The only recurring theme will probably be tales of our new cat, but expect other snippets from my life both past and present.
Feel free to post replies, or not, but please do not carry on convos with other members in MY Journal, unless it is regarding something I have posted.
