We Must Be jaded.....

.....Albert has just dragged in another juvenile rat
we must be tired
I was watching the excellent The Bourne Legacy with Meg all crammed into the window armchair, so we couldn't give a ****
William was asleep on the couch,
Chris is in Harrogate on a conference
and George was happily farting peacefully in his place by the front door.
Albert looked quite disappointed
as non of us moved an inch!
Me thinks he loves an audience

  1. Well at least your offerings are dead! My cats bring in live mice as "presents" for me and as soon as they spit them at my feet, the mice do a runner and I spend the next 20 minutes chasing the little buggers around the house trying to catch them so I can release them back into the field :-)

  2. Oh...I think he may just have been disappointed because he missed the start of the film...

  5. See, i could never not give a f*ck about something like that. I'd give at least a little yelp if not outright scream if completely surprised by it.

    The two older cats have worked out that i really am not good with these sorts of presents, so they usually content themselves by showing me what they've got then go off to kill and eat it. Or eat most of it and leave the rest where i can find it easily.

    Jim hasn't gotten his own kill yet, so not sure if the other two have clued him in.

  6. It's lost its shock value.

  7. Now that the shock value is gone, he may stop bringing you gifts.

  8. Any idea why they bring their catch indoors to show their parents?

    Gill in Canada, who doesn't have cats.......

  9. He must love you so for he is giving you all these wonderful gifts. I was also shown love this week as i was gifted with a bird, and two creatures that I could not make out what they were. It seems it is the season of giving.

  10. So he wants you to cook his catch now, John?
    Have a good Thursday!

  11. Totally unrelated to your post, but I just found out that a lady from down the street is from Wales. I really had to hold myself back from asking: "So, do you know Prince Charles or John the dogs?" (After all, you are equally famous.)

  12. We rarely get whole mice in the house..Heathcliff expertly dissects mice,leaving the less tasty bits on the side.

  13. Hahaha! I can totally relate. We have a young rambunctious parrot, and sometimes he'll be doing something totally f*cked up, and as long as he's not in any immediate danger (or ruining something valuable) I just ignore him.

    The mess will still be waiting when I get around to it!

  14. We used to be like Kay; live mice let loose in the bedroom every night. Freddie now understands that they should be caught and consumed OUTDOORS!

  15. Our cat Arwen,now passed, used to meow at the front door and wake us up at 2am or thereabouts. On opening the door, she would be sitting on the verandah with a rat tail hanging out of her mouth. We would then have to wait until the tail completely disappeared down her throat at which point we were dismissed and she continued on her way.

  16. These are presents I do not want to receive this Christmas. Chasing mice around is my least favourite activity!

  17. Albert sounds like the perfect hero, John. He's just a bit too dedicated to his line of duty. I would fight a lion before I would fight a rat. The other day, I put my hands in the manger to pull some straw out to scatter round the stall and a rat jumped out. I don't think I have ever moved so fast in my life.

    Good old Albert.

    Thanks for listing my blog in your top 100.

  18. I would prefer that the cats didn't feel obligated to unzip their gifts, leaving the contents for me to dispose of. However my preference do not count.

  19. Imagine if your pet cat was a lion?

    'What's he got in his mouth this time, Darling?'

    'I think it's the postman...'

  20. Funnily enough, I never remember Bette and Joan behaving like this...

  21. Our Max couldn’t give a f*** about mice, I found one eating out of his food dish while he slept not four feet away.

  22. The B&W photo makes them look so cuddly and sweet. Dudo loves mutliating the fake rats I give him. I'm so glad he's an indoor cat.
