Gizmo and I have had a busy few weeks. Giz has been taunted on a frequent basis by the pesky squirrels, and he regularly sits on the kitchen window ledge; surveying his garden, waiting for the squirrel to return. On several occasions, Gizmo has been within a whisker of catching a squirrel!? Much to Mr Squirrels suprise, Gizmo is able to climb the tree at … Continue reading A nice relaxing bath…!?
Gizmo and I have recently had a bit of an unscheduled break from blogging. I think it was a combination of my busy schedule with work, and personally being very run down. I guess it happens to everyone at some stage, but I just couldn’t face turning on my laptop. Apologies to Gizmo fans…! I hope ‘normal’ service will be resumed soon!? In the blogging holiday, I found … Continue reading ‘Normal’…whatever that is?!
Well, Christmas is nearly upon us. I cant believe how quickly this year has gone?! Gizmo has been making his own preparations for the festive season, by sending a letter to Santa, with some information on what he would like to receive this year?! As much as I think Gizmo deserves to receive his Christmas wish of a cat tree, I’m not sure Father Christmas … Continue reading Dear Santa, Please DONT read my blog… Love Gizmo x
As any cat owner will know, cats sleep a LOT, in a variety of unusual (often awkward looking) positions?!! Most kitties sleep approximately 16 hours a day, and like many humans, this makes me a little envious!? There is an unwritten rule that ALL cat owners know; if a cat falls asleep on you, you MUST not move, for fear of waking them up. I’m sure … Continue reading Cat Naps…Gizmo style!?
As previously mentioned in other blog posts, Gizmo LOVES climbing; trees OR curtains, he’s really not fussy?! There is one tree in our garden that he really loves…our 6m+ tall apple tree next to our kitchen window, that allows Gizmo to look into our next door neighbours garden… For many years, we have had an abundance of apples from this tree, and eaten MANY apple … Continue reading RIP, Gizmos Favourite Apple Tree…
There is no doubt in my mind, Gizmo is a natural climber?!! Indoors and outdoors, Gizmo LOVES to climb pretty much anything that he can get his claws into?! Thankfully, now that he can climb to his hearts content outdoors, he climbs my living room curtains less…! Phew!! The vintage curtains (that have seen better days) are getting a long overdue rest, as Gizmo seems … Continue reading Gizmo and his love of trees!!
Following a succession of LIVE ‘gifts’ from Gizmo recently, I bought him a new (very realistic) mouse toy yesterday, in the hope he wouldn’t feel the need to bring home LIVE gifts. However, I don’t think Gizmo fully understood that he didn’t need to hunt live gifts anymore… Today is my last day off work for a while, and I was enjoying a ‘lie in’ … Continue reading A human game of ‘Mousetrap’…?!!
Nine month old Gizmo is quite the explorer! He now regularly takes himself off for hours at a time, reappearing when its feeding time, or just before it goes dark. But most of the time, I believe he is in my next door neighbours garden… ‘Mr A’ as I will call him is a lovely retired chap, with a stunning garden. His garden is beautifully … Continue reading Gizmo attempts to make friends with the next door neighbour…
