Cats versus Noo-Noo

When we tried out our new vacuum cleaning robot the other night, our old red cat was present and not amused. Sorry about the grainy picture but it says more than enough about the level of comfort he felt. He quickly left the room. This morning our black cat witnessed our Noo-Noo in action and she was mesmerized…

… and made sure she was watching from a safe distance…

Noo-Noo hasn’t vacuumed the house at night yet, I wonder if our cat will decide to attack then, under cover of darkness. She’s a real night hunter, yesterday morning we found a dead dove in our dining room, so maybe she’ll try to overpower the Noo-Noo as well? Time will tell, but so far Noo-Noo seems to have the upper hand.

The weekend is here…

… and we even were able to all have dinner together at the same time with no kids’ jobs or handball practice or soccer practice interfering. After dinner we walked to a nearby diner to get an ice cream (it’s been pretty warm here)…

… then walked back home again, with the cats awaiting us. Amitzah was playful and Effoh was watchful, hiding in our front garden to observe a passing dog in detail from his safe spot…

And me? I’m smiling, glad that the working week is over and trying to savour these small family moments for as long as they’ll last.

BFFs

As I mentioned a few days ago, one of our neighbour’s cats likes to come into our back garden and sleep on our garden furniture when the pillows are out. He and our old cat are friends of sorts, I have regularly found them sleeping on the same couch or bed together after Sam (the neighbour cat) used to break into our house. We have a new cat flap with a microchip reader now, so the neighbour cats can’t break into the house anymore, but that doesn’t mean the end of the friendship.

This evening Sam was sleeping on one of our garden seats but when I came out to sit next to him, he decided he’d be more comfortable on the beanbag that was also out. Our old cat, Effoh (his full name is Effoh Chatool which means ‘where is the cat’ in Hebrew) was sleeping next to said beanbag…

After a while Effoh decided it would be fun to sleep on the beanbag as well…

… but Sam wasn’t too pleased about that. There was a little argument between the two which we admittedly helped settle in Effoh’s favour (he is old, our cat and in our garden after all). Then, about half an hour later, Sam decided that lying together on the beanbag wasn’t so bad after all, so he returned…

These two can really be like BFFs sometimes, so sweet! Would never happen with our black cat or my neighbour’s black cats as they all always seem at odds with each other. Ginger cats seem the more friendly sort, at least according to our own observances here over the years. Speaking of cat love, it reminds me of this song yet again…

I just adore this cover of this song. It’s also a nice way to end a post and start the evening with a smile. 🙂

Good Sunday

This morning I got my first Pfizer vaccine.

We’re back home again, enjoying the sunshine in the garden with a cat and a dragonfly.

Despite the chores I still have to do (loads of laundry to fold) this Sunday is already a good Sunday..

My view…

Finally sitting in our back garden again and this is my view…

My favourite garden statue and my old 16 year old cat are enjoying the sun with me. Shade is hitting us now and it’s starting to get a little chilly, so I’ll be going in soon but oh, how I love that it’s finally warm out!
