strange position

'How come you are sleeping like that, Sasha? Is it comfortable?'
'I am allowed to sleep in on Sundays'
'Sasha, you sleep in on most days!'
'Well, we are on the cusp of winter and it is raining. What else am I supposed to do? Eat?'

autumn sunshine

Streaming through the window: autumn sunshine.
Lying on the bed: sleeping cat.
Lynettea: 'Sasha why don't you go into your sunny enclosure, or take me out for my walkies?'
Sasha: Silence. Eyes shut.

Pond Fish Video

It is a bit cold and rainy and I am inside in my cosy on the lounge. Lynettea took a little video with her phone of the Pond Fish I supervise, just after they ate their breakfast. I said I would put a link to it on my blog, as they do not have many friends.

My reflections on yesterday's trip

I have made some points to Lynettea about what happened yesterday, and I expect her to take notice.
1. She is far too domineering. She thinks she can organize me as she wishes. I am a male kitty and not used to being in second place.
2. I felt humiliated at being pushed and shoved around and having people speak over my head as if I was not there. The Vet spoke to Lynettea and concentrated on pushing me around on the table.
3. It was easy for the Vet to shove me around on the table, as I went rigid and was able to be spun around from back to front as he wished, without a struggle. I may not be as compliant next time.
4. My body may not have been hurt, but my ego was bruised. I will take some time to get over this humiliating treatment.
5. I stayed outside all afternoon and evening as a punishment to Lynettea. Normally I would have come in and snuggled in my cosy, or played with my toys in the lounge room, or rushed up and down the hall and done a spot of sink jumping. So she missed out on some positive interaction.
6. I need several weeks notice of any disruption to my routine.
7. The neighbour from next door is forbidden to enter the house again, on pain of my severe displeasure.

What a Magnificent Cat I Am

My veterinary surgeon, Andrew, was very pleased to see me again. He weighed me and gave me a very thorough physical examination. I am 4.9 kilos. My legs are working fine. They did not need to have their extension stretched.  They are very extendible already without interference. The needle for my vaccinations was pricky when it was stabbed into me. But I didn't complain. The worm tablet was not well flavoured. And I prefer my nails long so I can hunt better.
But I suffered all this without complaint. Andrew said to Lynettea that I was very well behaved.
Afterwards we came home in a Uber car, so we were not stuck in the waiting room for hours.
But now I need some stress free time in the warm sunshine.
