Oh it’s been a hideous week. Not only was Gizmo very upset after his trauma last week, but his human has had an equally stressful week – filled with job insecurity, car problems and financial misery… (Gizmo seems fine now, by the way…) But this has all lead to me deciding something major has to change. So to chill out, I took a trip down … Continue reading Thank goodness for cats…
Gizmo isn’t himself today. He was full of mischief this morning, and then he went outside to play… When he came home, he looked like a drowned cat – he was literally saturated, but obviously scared as his tail was puffed right up. It has taken me all day to get him warm and dry, and convince him to eat something. I’ve given him a … Continue reading Please cross your paws for Gizmo… ❤️
Blimey, I’ve just realised I didn’t blog about our Christmas?! Gizmo (thankfully) left the Christmas tree in one piece this year, but it did get nibbled and pawed a few times…?! Christmas day was a quiet one – apart from the hilarity of watching Gizmo tear into his gift and open it all by himself…there were bits of schredded wrapping paper EVERYWHERE! To see the … Continue reading Oh my, doesn’t time fly!!
As I write this, I’m lying in bed, with Gizmo purring at my feet. As much as I’d like to think he will stay on my bed all night, I think he will wait until I’m asleep before getting off my bed and going into the living room type to unleash chaos… You see, according to Gizmo, today has NOT been a normal day. Today, … Continue reading Christmas Chaos…?!
As regular readers will know, Gizmo is quite a character. He’s always up to something; it’s usually hilarious but always naughty?! I’d been thinking of getting an artist to paint Gizmo for quite a long time, but I wanted to find the right person – For this portrait, I didn’t just want a ‘pretty’ cat painting; I wanted someone who could translate Gizmos quirks onto … Continue reading Gizmos ‘Purr-fect’ Portrait…
A few days ago, I found myself apologising to my neighbours… I found a shoelace in my kitchen one morning, and it doesn’t belong to any member of my household?! It’s quite a distinctive shoelace; black, with a knot in the middle and tattered chewed ends, but I fear the chewed ends may be Gizmos fault, so apologies in advance to whichever neighbour it belongs … Continue reading Neighbours: Are you missing a shoelace?!
Oh dear – Gizmos Human has started joining in with #hashtags, #hashtaggames and other activities on Twitter… Here is Gizmos Tummy Rub Tuesday…not that anyone in my house is brave (or stupid) enough to touch Gizmos gorgeous belly?! As much as Gizmo tries to encourage us, I’m not falling for that again! It’s like playing ‘Buckaroo’ but with real weapons?! One min he will allow … Continue reading Tummy Rub Tuesday…if you dare?!
A few days ago, it was my birthday. I turned 31, and to me, it was just another day. Nothing special. Yes, the postman delivered slightly more mail than usual, and thankfully no bills arrived through the post that day, but basically, I didn’t celebrate. I made no special plans, and wasn’t expecting anything. I did receive a beautiful bunch of flowers from a lovely … Continue reading My ‘special’ birthday gifts…?!
It’s been ages since I’ve found the time to write about Gizmos latest adventures…but he’s had a few recently?! With the dark evenings, and colder weather, Gizmo has been spending the evenings sleeping by a radiator which is probably a good thing – apart from humans trying not to trip over him, at least we know where he is when he’s staying out of trouble!? … Continue reading The gifts just keep coming…?!
