Sometimes Waiting Is Just So Hard

I've been looking out for Ginger cat all yesterday and all morning but no a sign of him, not a sniff.

 I know he said it would take a time to get things sorted and it's only been a couple of days but I really can't get settled. Up on the table among the bric-a-brac, upstairs to look over the back gardens, it's a great view from up there, and out the front up by Daddies chair, nothing!

I know I must learn some patience but sometimes waiting is just so hard.

The Protector Of Catworld

Mogsie has just come over to say hello.

He didn't stay too long he said he was just coming over to see how I was doing. That's just like him, thinking of others when he's going through such a rough time himself.

I can see why he's named the protector of Catworld.

On This Fine Evening

Everyone's gone out, I've no idea where, and left me indoors on my own.

It's a beautiful evening so I decided to have a little sleep on the window ledge looking out and seeing what the world is up to on this fine evening.

Not a lot as it turns out, apart that is for Mogsie sitting doing much the same as me over the other side of the road.

He's looking a little less sad that he has recently, he must be getting more used to how things are now. I just wanted to go over and give him a hug but sometimes it's best just to let people get lost in their own thoughts, a bit of space can help sometimes. I'll try and catch up with him tomorrow see how he is really doing.

In the meantime I'll leave him to his evening sunbathe,

Just Sit Still Will You!

Oh how she manages to get little grass anemones in her ear is beyond me. It's such a job to get them out, constant tugging. Of course it doesn't help that she keeps on moving her head to face me, blinks and them puts her ear back towards my mouth.

Just sit still will you!

I'm Sure She'll Be In It - Her Reputation Proceeds Her

I've just had my chat with Ginger Cat.

I was enjoying the day on the sunshine shed, it's sunny but there's the odd cloud too so I wasn't getting too hot sitting in it when all of a sudden there he was sitting in front of me just staring and smiling.

We exchanged hello's and general chit-chat pleasantries and then he said what I was thinking all along. He had also been to the Time Consciousness and said he saw me there.

I was dumbstruck that he was so upfront about it and relieved at the same time, for so long I've been wanting to ask him if it was him I was there. Now I knew.

I also understand that you've been having a bit of trouble trying to re-form a new Coven of 3.

I nodded and told him how I'd been trying to persuade Theo and that although Doublay had agreed he was now in hiding since all the trouble with Foxy Lectar, Flash and the New Cat Crew.

"I might be able to help you there." He said. "I've contacts far and wide and it just so happens that I know one of them is a witches familiar."

My heart jumped, nervous and excited.

"Really!" I almost jumped to give him a hug.

"No problem." He smiled back. "It might take a little while,ss he lives a bit of a way away but I'm sure she'll be in it. She likes a good challenge."

"Thank you so much. I've been having real problems with this, my friend Greego he's been cursed with a sleep spell ofr over a year now."

"Oh yes I know Greego the Pixie, I think there's very few who haven't either met him or heard of him. His reputation proceeds him." 

He grinned a knowing smile, nodded and jumped down into the gardens at the back of our house. "I'll be in touch."He shouted as he sped away.

An Old Friend Returns


I looked up from my bed on the window ledge to see Ginger Cat smiling up at me.

I was shocked, I was not expecting to see him sitting there when I first went to sleep. I've been wanting to speak to him about something I saw in the Time Consciousness for quiet a while but I;ve never managed to catch him when he was around.

"Hello." I replied not sure what to say.

"I heard about George this morning and wanted to come and pay my respects to Mogsie and Twizzle. George was a good egg, I really liked him, it's very sad."

I nodded, a little bit of water filmed itself across my eye but didn't form into a droplet.

"Yes it is and he was." I looked down in thought. "Apart from River he was my best friend around here. So kind."

Ginger Cat nodded.

"And how you doing?"

"Yeah I'm OK, just sad."

Ginger Cat smiled at me. "I didn't mean how are you about George. I meant how are YOU!"

My eyebrows joined in an upwards arch, and my head cocked itself slightly to one side as I tried to work out what he meant.

Ginger Cat smiled at me as he saw my reaction.

"I think we should have a bit of a chat, you know," he nodded, "things in common. experiences in common." Then he smiled. "I'll be in touch over the next couple of day, we can have a good old talk then."

I nodded, mouth slightly open. 

"Yes...yes I think that would be nice."

Ginger Cat smiled a kindly smile again.

"Yes looking forward to it." He started to walk off and if guessing what was on my mind he then turned his head back towards me. "Yes, very much looking forward to us talking, I might be able to help you with your plans!"

Just About Enough

I've just seen Mogsie.

I didn't notice him coming over but all of a sudden I looked up from my laid out position in the window t see him sitting there right in among he roses and plants on what remains of the rockery.

I went to say something but as I opened my mouth I suddenly became stumped for words. It seems a little wrong just to say hi and I didn't want to ask him how he was again, I think the answer would be obvious but I didn't want to just blank him either.

So I nodded and gave a weak smile. Mogsie did the same back then put his eyes down again.

I went back to sleep, something just knowing someone is there and thinking about you can be just about enough.

Very, VERY Hot

I've been keeping a low profile this past couple of days. The sun's been out and it's been very, VERY hot but also I've just not been feeling myself.

I've been thinking about George a lot. Last night River did some barking up at the window and my first reaction was to go and see who it was and just for a split second I forgot that it couldn't be George, sitting there looking back up at me and it hurt when I remembered.

I don't know how you handle such things, I personally have never lost someone before although I know there's been plenty of coming and going around here this past couple of years.

I guess it's just taking each day as it comes and taking stock of the simple things in life, like a walk around the Peace Garden when I'm feeling sad.

I Understand Why They Call It The Peace Garden Now

You know what, in troubled times keeping it simple surprisingly helps.

I was feeling a bit lost, bit of missing my friend and just couldn't settle. It's a hot day, a very hot day so neither in nor out provided a perfectly cool solution so I decided to go and sit in the shade in the Peace Garden.

I found myself recieving a gentle breeze a welcome gift as I sat next to The Wiseman, both of us remaining in the silent moment.

I understand why they call it the Peace Garden now.

He Was My Brother

I just spotted Mogsie over the road having a bit of a walk around. I wasn't too sure what I should say to him so I just asked how he was doing.

He looked at me and I'm sure I could see a bit of a tear in his eye, it reminded me of George's weepy eye and a sad smile came to my face.

"OK, you know." He said.

I nodded and smiled back. "I'm so sorry for your loss, for all of your loss. How's Twizzle and your mummy and daddy doing?"

Mogsie put his head down for a second. "You know." He paused for a moment." I know we didn't always see eye to eye but he was my brother and I do love him so."

"He knew that I'm sure." I said.

Mogsie turned his head away from me for a couple of seconds, I think he was trying to regain his composure. He then turned back towards me.

"I hope so."

My heart goes out to them all.

Rest In Peace My Darling Friend

I'm feeling very, very sad right now.

I was settled down with Daddy this afternoon, just having a bit of a rest and chill-out watching River sleeping with that ridiculous contraption around her neck when there was a knock on the door.

Daddy went and answered it and I heard him talking to his friend the lady over the road.

My ears pricked up when I suddenly heard him say he was so sorry.

I moved a little closer to the door, I couldn't quite work out what they were talking about but I could hear he wasn't his usual self that's when I understood and my heart dropped.

George it appears has not been himself this past day or so, not really eating much and laying around. His mum and dad took him to see the doctor who did some tests and scans and things and it turns out he really wasn't well at all.

For a moment hope fought it's way into my mind before going away again, there was nothing that they could do for him. My poor friend was going to join Lil' and Emma.

I could hardly believe it, not someone so strong, so loyal or kind to me, not my friend my very good friend George, it couldn't be but sadly it was.

I came back to my seat and lay down tears rolling down my cheeks. George was the first cat around here to make friends with me, he was my mentor, my adviser and my confidant.

I'm so sad for his family and so upset for myself, things will just not be the same around here. No more will I hear the call of my name, look out the window and see my mate with the weepy eye smiling back at me. I'm gutted.

Rest in peace my darling friend, you will never be forgotten. May the tears that we will all shed today and over the coming days join to form a beautiful stream and ease your journey towards our friends waiting for you as you sail on a boat of our love. Catworld will never be the same again but your legacy will live on. You were one of a kind.

Perfectly Comfortable When...

There we were having the best of sleeps, perfectly comfortable when... of a sudden, bang went some thunder that made us both jump. Now I'm not usually one to get scared of rain and thunder, I usually quiet like it but the suddenness of this storm I must admit has startled me. Thank goodness River was next to me, for once we comforted each other.

My Antenna Is Going On High Alert

Well I've spent the last hour or so sniffing around, investigating and although there's lots of unusual animal smells around I can't pin it down to either cats, dogs, squirrels or foxes. I think we've had a visitor in the night from some unknown creature.

My antenna is going on high alert maybe a new breed is emerging?

Disturbances In the Garden

I know it's very early to be coming cross paranoid but I've just come out into the garden and there's something very different here than there was last night, I can smell it.

This needs further investigation as there's been disturbances in the garden.

Such Cheek Without Response.

I was sitting in the window with River watching Twizzle take her daddy for a walk and Mogsie enjoying the last of the afternoon sun when all of a sudden River started barking.

I looked down to see bold as brass Chameleon nonchalantly walking right under the window.

I thought he was about to try and jump in the window but he carried on walking by. My heckles went up, how dare he. I was about to have a rant at him then I saw him cross the road...
...and walk right towards Mogsie. 

Then something really surprising happened, he walked right by Mogsie and Mogsie just stared at him. I know he said I should leave the New Cat Crew and Foxy to him, he has his plan, but I did not expect Mogsie to take such cheek without response. I'm guessing it's all in his plan, I just wish I knew what it was.

So Dirty Doing So Little

I don't know how River can get so dirty doing so little. Oh dear this cleaning business is never done.

Very Infectious

I have no idea what's tickled Mogsie so much but he's over the road, sitting on his own chuckling away to himself, throwing his head back every now and then as his body rocks under the pressure of laughter, eyes rolling around and around.

It's very infectious you know watching someone laugh, you can't help but join in.

This new comfort conditioner was a good choice, lavender. 

Lavender makes you sleepy you know, very sleepy.

He Was Too Busy To Notice Me

Hooray, Daddy left the office door open and so I could come in and see what he and River were up to. He was working so I took a few minutes to check that Greego was still asleep and OK, he was and... see if I could tempt River into a game of chase but she was all settled down.

Then I spotted the open window. I turned to look at Daddy but he was too busy to notice me, so...

...I decided to go to the other open window just that little bit farther away from him.

This was my chance for an adventure. An adventure out of the window, the upstairs one!

Then I Got It And It All Made Sense

River and I were mucking about when Daddy called us both out into the garden, he said it was too lovely a day for us to be inside we needed to get some sun on our bodies.

Little did I know he would try and rope me in to moving the garden furniture. I wondered what on earth he was playing at getting all hot and sweaty on such a warm day then I got it and it all made sense.

He was putting the pool out. I love water, think I might take a dip later on in the week.

Ahhh - Divine


This is just divine,. The sun is shining, happy music on the radio and I'm cuddled up with my darling River who makes the best mattress.

A Bit Starved

I don't know what's up with everyone, the sun is out and smiling hot and yet no other cat out anywhere and believe me I've searched high and low today.

I guess I'm just feeling a bit bored, a bit starved of cat company, Don't get me wrong I love living with River, she's so much fun but sometimes you just fancy a bit of a hang out and chinwag with people that really get you, understand what it's like to be a cat.

Ooh, Ooh - I Forgot To Tell You

Ooh, ooh what with my daddies going on holiday and the Daddymummy coming to look after us and all this drama with Europe and everything I forgot to tell you, I had an important message from Mogsie the other day and it seems there's been a mishap in their place.

Hi David,
We had absolute chaos over our house yesterday morning! If you were sitting in the window you might have seen it. I was in the kitchen with my Mum having a pit stop and my Dad was outside the back door when all of a sudden my Mum and me heard this weird noise coming from in the lounge. We rushed out of the kitchen to see Twizzle all tied up in the net curtains about half way up swinging round and round. My Mum shouted for my Dad and rushed over to Twizzle and grabbed her but the curtain was twisted round and round her little paw and she was crying so piteously! I couldn't do anything to help her as my Mum and Dad tried to get her paw free and my Dad was shouting "hold her up higher" but my Mum couldn't as she was holding Twizzle as high as she could and Twizzle was so frightened that she kept biting my Mum! They finally got Twizzle free but she said to me that she thought her arm was going to come out of it's socket. Then I noticed that there were two big rips in the curtain but I didn't say anything as they'd soon be noticed! Twizzle needed a rest then to get over her ordeal so I went back in the garden so she could get some peace and quiet. Luckily she seems alright today. Apparently she had seen a ginormous wasp and tried to catch it - good thing I didn't see the wasp as there would have been more than two rips in the curtain with my weight climbing up. There would probably have been no curtain left! 
Your friend
