Quite recently my human, Marcia, wrote that there isn’t much to write about me, because I do the same thing everyday. Well, that is soooo not true, so I decided to write my own story about my exciting days. Now I do hope you’ll appreciate this, because typing with paws is much harder than typing with fingers! It’s also much harder than placing cute pictures of myself on Instagram. That’s easy because I am cute, therefore so are all my pictures. But I am getting off topic. There is so much to tell about my days, that I will start off with the mornings.
I usually wake up around 7. Depending on the daylight and how hungry I am. You see my humans only give me a certain amount of dry food every day. They say it is to keep me fit and trim… So when I’ve eaten all my food I have to wait till the next day to get new. So when I get hungry I start waking up Kilian. It is no use trying to wake up Marcia. Just like the mice I have caught, she plays dead. It’s impossible to wake dead mice. I should know because they don’t call me the great mass mouse murderer for nothing! Anyway, I start waking Kilian by walking all over him. Especially his head. Now you would think it must be nice to be woken with a full facial massage! But Kilian generally needs a little more motivation. So I start tapping his face with my paw. A pat on the nose, two on his cheek one on his left eye, back to his cheeks, on the mouth, etc. If necessary I repeat the whole thing. After a few minutes I get my reward, Kilian gets up to feed me. Then he goes back to bed and I follow, showing my appreciation by purring really loudly so Kilian can get back to sleep easily (Kilian: yeah right…)
When he gets up again I get to go out. Then the hard work begins, because I have to check my temporary garden, which is often a different one than yesterday. And I need to find a place to do my morning business. I hate using the litter box. Although I have to sometimes, especially when the ground is really hard. During the morning I usually take one of my humans out for a walk. I tell them it is so they keep fit and trim… What I do for the rest of the morning depends on whether we stay put or go to another place. If we move on I lie somewhere in the van. Either sleeping or looking outside to make sure we are going in the right direction. And having an occasional wash. If we stay, then I will stroll around my garden, spy on some birds, try to find new mouse holes, climb a tree and chew some grass. And of course I have a few naps. This is when it is dry. Any self respecting cat stays indoors when it rains of course. Then I just have a lot of adventures in my dreams, wouldn’t you like to know them! But I am not telling. But next time I will tell you what I do during the rest of the day.
