Unnatural Prey

Dear Matilda,

USB cables do not taste good. They also do not need to be pulled out of the computer and stashed under the bed (although at least you seem to have some grasp of electrical safety).

Please go back to sitting on the windowsill and your trash-talking competition with the magpies. It’s safer.

Dear Matilda,You are not as subtle as you think.First, those are cough sweets, not cat sweets.Second, sitting on my Keyboard and trying to sniff my nose will not distract me from the fact your paw is almost bent double trying to reach the cough sweet tube behind you to claw one out. I’m not sure […]

Dear Stephen,I know you are a rescue cat, and as such sometimes have bad dreams. I know that you need to be woken from these occassional nightmares or you are twitchy and depressed for hours. After last night I also know that I need better reflexes.Lashing out against the dream monster is not your normal […]

Cats Rule Postcard by KatAnnette Create one-of-a-kind picture post cards at Zazzle Matilda is going through a chewing phase. It used to be envelopes and earwax, but it seems she want’s to expand her diet.  Yes, she has plenty of kibble, and cat food, and treats, she’s just being a cat. This has resulted in […]

Thought for the dayEven for a cat, that’s bad manners…I’m nt sure whether he thinks the food will escape or what, but Stephen seems to have decided that his food bowl requries pinning down…I’ve seen kittens do this before, because they can’t quite get to the food.

Thought for the dayIt’s cold…On the first day the white flakes started drifting down, much to to consternation of the cats. Stephen remembered this from last christmas, and he remembered he didn’t like it. After failed attempts to persuade me to change the weather and turn the thermostat on the world outside up, he sulked. […]

A pair of elderly gents currently in the Caterham Cats Protection have been brought to my attention. At 11 and thirteen they’ve got years ahead of them (cats can live to over twenty) and are sadly with CP because their owner died.Tommy, age 11, who loves the outdoors, catnip and tickles, and Panther, age 13, […]

Dear Matilda,We are aware of the loose floorboard in the bathroom (after you hid prawns under it) and have filled in the gap under it. This should mean that it is of no further interest to you.Instead, it means that throughout the day we are intermittently treated to thwap-wappawappawappa as you try out your new […]

Dear Stephen,We went to the trouble of getting you a kibble ball for “environmental enrichment” and, let’s be blunt, exercise. The idea is that we put kibble in it and you roll it to get the kibble. You weren’t supposed to look at the kibble that fell out, trot across to your empty kibble dish […]
