Paddy wants to curl up to sleep near Rosie and she will not have it! She'll be curled up happily on the settee and he'll jump up and settle down nearish - off she moves and settles elsewhere. Couple of minutes later he follows and tries again! Poor Rosie.

They've been careering about this morning, in and out of the garden and up and down the stairs - he carries on longer than her and she gets cross in the end as she needs her sleep Very Happy

I got upset yesterday and Rosie did exactly what Timmy used to do - came up all worried and cuddled up to me - aaaah! I can forgive a lot of her moaning for that!

Had the family all here today and both cats have been as good as gold and sociable,

Rosie even curled up in my arms and slept when she got tired - she never used to be that trusting with other people in the house. She got the huff though when I tried to play a game (Cluedo) whilst holding her - not permitted - she went off cross.

Paddy has charmed everyone, playing, curling up on knees and generally being empty headedly charming,

How is Flatty with other people? and Mikey? and co

Flatty & other people? He's very cool Cool about visitors these days .... He casually checks them out, sniffs them, then goes back to sleep!

You gotta be careful with them guys.... Rosie is right there!

Nisse does not like male visitors. He hides for hours. He usually likes women and will come down and charm them after being sure there is no evil male around. Mysan LOVES visitors. She likes showing off how beautiful she is :-)

Oh yes, Vivien! Nisse, however, has a natural talent to look really unelegant, showing off his little belly... But still cute in a way :-)

aaah but their little tummies are so gorgeous!


the unthinkable is happening here - Rosie and Paddy are asleep with their noses only a couple of inches apart!

I think Paddy must have sneaked up on her but she knows and is not moving off in a huff! Little Paddy never gives up trying Very Happy

hmmmm - he disgraced himself earlier - she was pinned in the corner with him beating her up - she was growling and swearing furiously - I'm afraid he got a smack from me and shouted at. I wish she'd really bop him hard and give him a good nip to teach him but she doesn't Crying or Very sad

Water pistol - priority on the shopping list

Yes Viv. We have a water bottle spayer that works just as well and as much as I hate the thing, she had to learn not to do certain things. I don't even have to use it anymore. I just have to pick it up and when she hears the water swooshing in the bottle and sees the bottle, she stops in her tracks. I also carry a spring water bottle wherever I go for drinking, so If I'm away from the sprayer, I just shake my water bottle and she stops in her tracks.
Good lick with that. Kittens can be such brats sometimes, sigh!

it certainly sounds effective!

this morning I told him to back off and he did

- he really was in disgrace yesterday - so hoping that he realises that even himself won't tolerate any bullying (he tends to think he's so gorgeous he can do no wrong most of the time Rolling Eyes )



he was right off us yesterday evening 'cos we'd got so cross - picking him up resulted in lots of growling and swearing - he doesn't like being picked up at the best of times, a very wilful little horror!

things are still on the up - Paddy gets a little enthusiastic at times but she yells loud and out comes the water pistol - he flies and responds straight away to an angry shout of 'Paddy' - that's enough, he now stops when told,

It means she is much happier playing with him and seeks him out to play.

She's still very jealous of me holding him so I tend to leave that to himself if she's around and just stroke him wherever he's sitting and move on. He'll sit on Himself's knee but rarely on mine - I'm not sure how much is because he knows Rosie will kick up about it or whether the bond with himself is just much strong, It's ok if it is as it's making them happy!

Rosie is being extra cuddly and utterly gorgeous and sweet to me
- making sure of her position?

Mind you she still has her cross streak - I'd cuddled her for about an hour while she stretched and sighed and had her lovely little ocelot-spotted tummy stroked - I needed to get up and put her down - cue for short nip of annoyance Evil or Very Mad

Paddy is quite clever I think - my daughter bought a little catnip ball for Christmas and he loves it. We threw it into shoes and things and he was very good at fishing them out - he now picks them up from wherever they are and trots over to peoples shoes to drop them in so he can play there! He's also weighing up the door handles - Timmy, a previous cat could open the doors and he might be another one, oh dear.

I always enjoy your updates, Vivian. They tell me as much about you & himself as about Rosey & Paddy. What a wonderful home for critters you two provide! These two are very fortunate.Very Happy

A bit of sibling rivalry, huh? Ever feel a wee bit manipulated? :wink: Laughing

manipulation? Rosie's (and Paddy's) middle name Rolling Eyes


yes, it does give away what lunatics we are!

himself is Irish and I realised years ago - he needs something to 'baby' since the girls got older. He's the one who cooks chicken for them (Rosie wouldn't eat anything else at one time) and sits out in the cold to keep them company and keep an eye on them - I'm the one moaning 'it's COLD - shut that door' as he stands waiting for them to come in or go out and taking time to make up their minds.

Rosie, like Timmy before, is 'my' cat so I'm doing nothing to alter the fact that Paddy is his.

Rosie also knows when I'm upset - does Flatty? she comes and cuddles up to me looking concerned and resting her cheek on mine.

Aw, she's sensitive, too!
Flatty? Hmmmmmmmm ... he seems to blunder on regardless, though he employs spectacular attention seeking strategies if I'm distracted enough not to pay a suitable amount of attention at the required times! Laughing

... like lurching in front of me when I attempt to walk from A to B, nearly knocking me over ... Deciding to get "stuck" on the fence he normally has no problem negotiating, then yowling incredibly loudly & hysterically till I came to the "rescue". He's got lots of good tricks to remind me of his importance! Evil or Very Mad
