I recently got a new telly, and was worried that Lily would knock it over while trying to sit on top of it. The old one was HUGE and Lily loved to sit on it, and occasionally try and catch things on the screen. She only got onto the new one once, didn't seem impressed, and fortunately jumped off without causing a CATastrophe!
However, she now likes to plonk herself right in front of the new TV. Good thing it's a large screen!

That's lovely to see Dave  ;D Alfie did try and sit near to Cleo yesterday - but she kept taking swipes at him until he went away again  >:(
It's probably all for show, and they get along great when you're not there!
That programme about cats that was on telly a few months ago (I forget the name) had some footage of cats in a house at night, and their behaviour was completely different to how the behaved during the day.

Bramble and Lily have been squabbling a lot lately. I've been fairly sure it's been playful, but when I came in a few minutes ago I was even more sure. This is what I found:

They get along a lot better if they don't know I can see them!

Bramble had a coughing/sneezing fit a few minutes ago. It starts out sounding like she's coughing up a furball, though nothing's ever come up. When it first happened I rushed towards her, intending to get her off the carpet, which cats always choose to throw up on, but I stopped doing that, partly because there was no furball or sick, and partly because she ran away from me, though never away from carpet!
This time, Lily rushed to her, and I expected her to take advantage of Bramble's distress and pounce on her, but (and I know this sounds anthropomorphic) she seemed concerned for Bramble's welfare. Not only that, but Bramble didn't feel threatened and stayed where she was. I think they've turned a corner in their relationship. There's still the occasional spat when Bramble gets tired of Lily's youthful exuberance, but they're spending much more time close together in peaceful coexistence.
I managed to get a photo, but it was on my phone, in poor light, so it's a bit rubbish.

Probably the texture. One of the bags is a Tesco one I was given a few years ago, so it won't smell strongly of whatever it is it smells of. The other is an Asda one I bought a few weeks ago.
It could still be the smell, but either way, I'll have to buy a couple of new ones!

These are the Hessian (or Hessian-like) bags that are usually sold at the tills in supermarkets. I don't know why the cats are so fascinated by them, but the house is quieter for having them!

These two have been tolerating each other more and more every day. That is, Lily keeps leaping on Bramble, and Bramble tolerates her most of the time!
The shopping bags seem to have calmed them both down a lot, now that Bramble has discovered them, and they've spent several hours together sleeping on one of them - and they're still there! They've never been so close!

I finished my Christmas shopping today, mostly presents, very little food. I just managed to put the food away, when Lily decided to lie on the shopping bags. She always does, but she usually waits until they're empty!


Of course, Bramble had to have a nose too.

One of my cats was very well known at the local train station, underground etc.  In the last 6 months of her life, she not only followed me to the station, onto the train, she then followed me to the underground along the district line to Chelsea.  She would hang around all day and then do the return journey.  I had to loose 4 days leave, eventually just put her on the train back with the guard to put her off at Bexley etc.

The train station people were heart broken when she finally passed away from a stroke.  The vet thought she was having her last swing before retiring.

If I have an appointment, or need to catch a bus, I have to leave the house 20 minutes early, just so I can walk her back home.
She doesn't always follow me though, so sometimes I find myself waiting around for ages!

I'm gradually putting decorations on the tree, a few at a time. Still no trouble from Lily, though she did go for the tinsel when I took it out of the box! That's over an entrance from the living room to the kitchen. It's a wide doorway, but there's no door, so I'll be hanging Christmas cards up there too. Cards are another target for Lily, she likes to pretend to fight them, and then chew the corners!

Aw Dave, that's lovely - but as you say - worrying too.

We used to have a little cat, Flynn - he was the dilute ginger tabby - and he used to wait for me coming home from work, run down the back lane to greet me then dance back to the house with me in tow.   :evillaugh:

Am well impressed with that picture of her on the washing airer   ;D

Lily has another habit, which is both infuriating and endearing at the same time.
Just like several other people, I have cats who sit at the window as they leave. Not Lily! If there's someone in the house, she has access top outside, and more than once I've tried to walk to town, only to have to turn back because Lily tries to follow me. There are too many busy roads for me to let her follow me for too long.
I've also frequently found her waiting at the end of the road when I come home, which is less worrying! When she sees me she runs alongside, stopping to let me catch up, then running again.
