Hello

Winnie gets the morning head rub greeting....and loves it

In the comments of yesterday's blog, Deb asked how Albert is doing...
Well the long and the short of it, is that he's doing mighty fine.
Summer is a good time for Albert.
His damaged leg is not so painful
He enjoys a diet of at least 2 young rabbits a week
and he is out galavanting all night every night.
He arrived back to the cottage just as I drove up after night shift.
He head butted me as I passed him on the cottage wall, and he slipped through the cat flap before I had opened the door in order to greet the rest of his pack.
He greets each dog in turn every time they catch up
Only Wininie properly understands the significance of a feline head rub, to the terriers it is just the silly actions of a wide eyed cat.

  5. This could be our farm cat, Blackie, John. Tess loves him and enjoys a head rub. However, on her last pee walk, which she does alone around the garden, we always put out her three biscuits ready for her return. Sometimes Blackie strolls in and asks for a bowl of milk for him and his companion Creamy (not very original names I'm afraid) - as soon as Tess hears me speak to Blackie she is in a like a shot - grene eyed jealousy.

  6. A pair of sweeties!
    Our Shadow [yes he's black...] loves headbutting us. Tinka is more of a 'give the humans a lick' girl.

  12. Cats are so 'true blue'. No faking with them. He must really love his 'pack'. Give him a snuggle for me. Thanks John...have a good one. Deb

  15. Bet he would stop at group hug. I do miss not having a cat, they are such sweet animals.

  16. I love the cat rub, it means they accept you as one of their own. Makes me miss having a kitty, but for now I shall live vicariously through you. And please, can you scratch Albert between the ears for me? :)

  17. I think I would love Albert.

  18. I envy Albert his diet; you might mention to him that a rabbit braised in a nice curry sauce is excellent over rice.

  19. My pup sometimes gives the old cat a head and ear wash..cat seems to like it! Discovered today that dog's " girlfriend" who he spent 5 hours yesterday with play fighting and mouthing each other has got kennel cough, so I am waiting for signs of it in him…..damn, it will curtail several outings if he gets it!!

  20. My grandkitty is coming to stay with us for a 3 week holiday while his mum and dad go off to even sunnier climes. He seems to like being with us, and we love the head bumps we get from him when he visits.

  21. A very good life for a very good kitty.

  22. Reminds me of the gray tabby Milhous who would arch his back and stand on his tiptoes so he could rub his head against Faulkner the smooth collie's chin. Happy times.

    Love,
    Janie

  23. Awww... all of this is heartwarming except the baby bunny part, which I'm not sure I can get out of my mind ... even though I realize the population will be thinned somehow ...

  24. I love Albert. What a good cat.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lovely. That a dog and a cat can get along so well should be a lesson to some humans (but won't be, sadly).

    ReplyDelete
  26. Winnie is wise beyond dog-years.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Albert has proper cat manner's!

  30. I can almost hear the purring from A and the snuffling and grunting from W.

  31. Albert is obviously the alpha male - like the strongest silverback in a troop of gorillas. You my friend are merely the zoo keeper.

  32. Makes my heart glad to see this.

    My kitties will give me head bumps at least once a day, but every so often, they'll lift their face towards me so we can touch noses. Those are always extra special to me.
