Overcast Day

On a rainy, overcast day
we would go outside to the back garden
and have a look around
Perched on one of the vegetable beds, or as Mousie would call them - her litter box!

Hail the Mew Year

Hi Guys, It's been a while - again!
First off, Happy New Year. I hope you all had a peaceful end to what has been a tumultuous year around the globe. I have not been on the site, as you probably know, and therefore have lots of catching up to do with other peoples blogs. I shall be doing the rounds today and seeing what is going on in other kitties lives, which are a lot more relaxing than mine, I should imagine!

I can't believe it's been one year and almost 7 months since I lost this one. The new years was kind of tough, because if I wasn't over there with her, I definitely visited before or after. She is always in my thoughts. 

Now that the bane of my existence - my new computer - is finally up and running(hurrah!), I have uploaded some of the old pics of her from one of the memory sticks. To hell with my documents, I have pics of Mousie backed up all over the place!

I was trying to decide which ones I wanted to upload as my first post for 2018, and I was thinking of these ones as I love how her fur contrasts the pattern on the sofa. As I went through each file and finally found them, weirdly enough they were taken on 2nd January 2016. Coincidence, Eh?

I look forward to seeing all of you and getting back in to the swing of things.

I'm Still Here

Hi Guys,
Been going through some stuff - but I'm still around. What a crazy year it has been.
I hope you are all well. 

As the days draw to a close earlier, and weather gets colder, sometimes it is hard to keep up the morale. But this one is always in my thoughts, although I'd be much happier if she was here.

Happy Mew Year

For any of my Mew-ish kitty readers, Happy Mew Year. May you be inscribed and sealed, which basically means I hope you get loads of treats and have good health!

 I found this pic on the web, which I believe clearly represents the Holiday.

But of course, this one does too, and I couldn't resist!

The Internal Meow

Sometimes, when Mousie was laying there, exhausted from taking a nap, eating, washing etc., she would do this half purr/half meow that kind of sounded like a hum. It went like this: MMMMMMmmmmmmmMMMMMm. Like she was kind of moaning, but not in pain, and at the same time wanted to meow, but couldn't motivate herself to open her mouth. It was like a hum - but pathetic! At the end of making the sound, she'd sometimes partially open her mouth and go, 'mah'.
Do any of your kitties do this?

August...and Beyond

As some of you may or may not know, August is a tough month for me. Mainly because this was traditionally the month I would spend the most time with Mousie. Her 'rents would go on various holidays and I would be summoned up to the house to babysit the fur baby. Last year was tough. Since she left, my own life has changed in so many ways that are too weird, and not relevant to this blog! But, there has been more than one occasion that I've wished I could go and see her as that would give me at least a couple of hours peace. 

I don't need to explain why this August has been so horrific for the world in general. I hope all the Southern US kitties are keeping safe, and a shout out to the Spain kitties, if I do in fact have any blog visitors from Spain, are keeping safe, too in this increasingly crazy, and outrageous world.

We have a huge eclipse coming up. Prayers and peace to all.

 Contemplative, thinking about this world.

Replacement Camera - The Outtakes

After Mousie ditched the last one like a hockey puck, I went and bought a new one. Same brand, lower model. Admittedly, I had never warmed to the camera, and soon after I got my phone which produced higher quality pictures of my muse, or should I say my - mews. I played around with it for a while, but the focus was so-so and the colour quality was okay. Kind of like when you see those pics in hairdresser shop windows that have been there for 20 years. As usual, the subject of the pictures win the day, as it was extremely hard to take a bad pic of Mousie.

Part 3: The Lost Pics

The last in the series from the old camera:

A very smug expression. And why not?!

There's that sweet face again
 She is making pizza dough on the dead grass
 Staring intently, mouth slightly open with her supermodel pout

Mousie - The Lost Pics

Hi Guys, 
I know it's been a while. I have finally got a new laptop and am in the process of uploading from the old one. I mentioned earlier on that I had discovered pics of Mousie from an old camera that I had seized using due to her smacking it off a bunk bed like a hockey puck! Thankfully the pics are still there and I have uploaded them. I reckon they are from circa 2014. I will be posting them this week so here are the first ones:

 Here she is next to the bird feeder. Hoping it gets some visitors.
 In her later years I would always stand outside with her, and we were obviously in deep conversation.
Such an expressive face. I miss her alot.
