Peri 26/6

PeriSo we’ve been in this same place for a few weeks now and it’s very nice as we can sit upstairs and spy on the neighbours. There’s also a road with cars and big lorries in the distance across some water and they like to beep their horns here so that’s fun as well.

Our home is tied up to a big concrete path and our owners have taken us for a few walks up to some grass and bushes. I could smell some other cats up there so was a bit wary incase we got pounced on.  Thornton did his usual trotting along but I found it a bit hot and just wanted to sit down. My owner was not impressed with me.  We get brushed when we get home and it’s delicious.  Thornton goes into a frenzy and looks so uncool. 

It was my birthday a few weeks ago and they put on some music and sang to me.  Apparently I’m 10 now. Whatever that means. They told Thornton to be nice to me for the day (he wasn’t). Then a few days later it was Thornton’s turn. They sang to him and I had to be nice to him. I really don’t understand what it’s all about.

We’ve had a few people come to say hello and sit upstairs having drinks and nibbles with the owners. They sometimes get a bit noisy but I don’t mind so long as I get some attention.

My favourite owner has started doing odd things on the water. She gets a long board out, puts it on the water then stands on it and uses a big stick to move along. She disappears into the distance behind other boats and then comes back and she’s still dry. I don’t understand why she doesn’t get wet or fall over as it gets very windy sometimes.Anyway, she seems to enjoy it.

They’ve been doing lots of jobs on the boat and she’s been cleaning like crazy. When she makes the bed I like to jump up and hide under the top sheet.  We have a bit of a fight and I kick my back legs and pretend to scratch and bite while she makes a growling noise at me.  We carry on like that for a while and then when I’m tired, or she gets fed up, I go to my room at the front for a snooze.

I think I’m in trouble but don’t really understand why. I jumped onto the concrete next to our home to have a look around and they went ballistic with me!  I’ve no idea what their problem is but I won’t do it again in a hurry.
