Rating the human carer

I am tempted to rate Lynettea on her performance for 2009 before it is over. I dare not be too critical, because of the food dish issue and the patting issues and I don't want to make her feel tooooo bad, but it seems to me that she could be a bit more thoughtful about giving me access to the computer more frequently. I don't get to post much and not many kitties post on my blog. This must mean that my life is too boring. I wonder if this is my fault or the fault of my human.

On the other hand I don't think I would like too interesting a life with a lot of disturbances.

Lynettea does her best to care for me when she remembers. Sometimes, as I show you below, she puts a wet cloth on me in the heat. Sometimes right on top of me too. That is tooooo cooold for me.

Too hot?

We have had a heatwave for days. It is supposed to be 40C today. I am not tall enough to read the thermometer on the wall, so I don't know if it is really that hot. I like the heat on my furs and stay outside, but Lynettea gets worried about me.

She keeps on saying "Come in Diamond. It is too hot for you out here." This morning she decided to drape a wet pillowslip over me to give me some cool shade. At the moment I am in the cool again to make this entry.
Tomorrow may be cooler. Please read my entry below on cat origins.

Origins of the domestic cat

I have some interesting information on the origin of our noble species. I put the text of the link in just in case it doesn't work. This is research humans have done in the last five years. Fancy humans only just finding this out. Miaouwhistory has recorded this long ago. It is good to see that our companions and servants are showing an interest in finding out more about us.
