It has been brought to our attention (mine and Marmers’) that our Antipodean pal, Roy, has been asking of our whereabouts over on MadLamb’s blog (that’s what it’s called, but we all know it is Mistpurr Spock’s blog really) so I thought it would be nice to update him on our doings and goings and comings as it were.
Having moved here to our new Wee Hoose, Lintrollersquoy, over on the sunny Firth of Forth in February 2012, we are purrty much settled in, though not really chuffed with all the upheavals re knocking down of walls, blocking in of doors, hoicking out of chimney breasts, building of sheddage and as for the garret…don’t GET ME STARTED!!!
The one bit of jinery of which we both appurrove is of course what Spock would call the ‘flappery’ in the back door, but the wild disruption of New Kitchen was almost a pawprint too far for cats of a nervously genteel disposition I can tell you!
This and the following photographs will be old hat to our Facebook Friends, but this is just for Roy…
I rest from strenuous sundry choppings, pokings and polishing the hearthstone
a warming New Year image for downunder
an extremely tasteful repurresentation of moi
St Andrews Day at the Scottish Fisheries Museum, Anstruther
Posing elegantly in front of Wee Stove: we have since moved all the logs and briquettes away from the stove on the advice of Lynn who sold it to us.
What lucky we posted this photo on Facebook or there may have been an unintentional conflagration and a short-lived residency in Lintrollersquoy.
Happy New Year to our Chum in a Land Downunder!

I just thought it would be nice to go for a bit of a scan around from the roof of Auld Shed: it was a lovely evening, I was feeling bouncy & sproingy and in need of a teensy-weensie frisson of excitement.
So up I jamp
Now what, I pondered?
Strangely, when I decided what I would do, fpu’s response was less than favourable!
It wasn’t long before I discovered why. Within a nanosecond of fpu and digicam popping in our back door, Mrs G (ID concealed to avoid litigation) shot out of hers like one of those weather-people (one whose outlook is always overcast and showery) and I careened through the Flapperchancity as if pursued by bears.
Should you want to see my own ‘Thoughts of KC’ just do that mousie-hovery thing over each image.

Boy was I a thrilled kitty to come in through the Catflap of Destiny and discover fpu had just finished preparing six bonny bylte lobsters: my timing, as ever, was impeccable. Or so I thought…
Whoosh! I was up there faster than a punter up a hooer’s draaers!
Don’t get aerated, it’s just wee bits o’ taes, ken:-)
Unfortunately, I disrememberated© munching on some gress all-too-recently *sigh*
So glad there was some left over…not complaining like, but that fpu was just a bit quick mopping up the womit: it was very fresh…

At last! I have a brand new climbing frame to play on/in. What a time it’s taken! I purrsonally didn’t mind the concrete/bits-of-laminate floor, nor the tiny cooker (what’s a cooker to a cat, after all) nor the bare bits of new plaster, though I do draw the line at dust, and there was more than a little of that, but I really missed the High Ground for doing a bit of Lithe Leaping and Lolling on. Now that my cupboards are in and the table&chairs released from someplace called Storage, everything is just tickety-boo.
Best of all, I can escape Moitherin’ Marmers; his physique *chortle* doesn’t allow him to do the Triple L and he stays firmly rooted to the seablue vinyl.
Here I am responding in my usual helpful way to Fpu’s appearing with Digicam…
There’s a very very odd thing at the turn of the stairs…think it might’ve fallen out of Desperate Dan’s Peh. Just as long as it doesn’t tomber on moi.

It takes all sorts of cats to make a world. Take my mate Marmers – oh go on, purrleeeease.
No, I mean metaphorically speaking, take my mate Marmers, he’s a laid back kinda guy, likes his R&R (pretty much to the exclusion of all else), does a bit of eatin’ a bit of sleepin’ and a lot more diggin’ than is stric’ly necessary, but you won’t see him strollin’ along the High Street acting Mr Kool, like some cats I am too modest to name.
This is more his bag. Or basket. Fpu was not thrilled to see His Lardship snuggling into the clean laundry…and after all that folding too…
Other more energetic, puss-about-town types purrefer to stroll along the West Shore, taking in the evening sun and generally socialising, posing, perambulating, that sort of thing…
See? I’ve tried explaining to him, I’ve tried showing him How It’s Done, but to no avole; he’s just that sort of cat, the kind that won’t budge, won’t try something a bit adventurous, a stick-in-the-mud.
I’ve got a thing about grey cats…

I get a bit bored sometimes when fpu is footering on facebook, so I like to do something a bit Attention-grabbing every now and again.
There are many opporchancities for a good Lurk in the present State of Affurs, and I never like to let a good one pass me by, so, the other day I bethought me to slip into a small crevasse and await a reaction. Like one does…
A nice little nook into which only a Slim Kitty can squeeeeze…
I’m just a blur of fur
No I was not ‘nearly stuck hahaha’ Some people…
I just like to keep her entertained…

I wull tell you this, the noise! the stour! the Disruption! It was awful.
Fpu swanned off to St Andies and Guardbridge, leaving m’Marmalade Chum and me to face the music. And the end result??? A huge draughty hole in the sitting room wall! Wtf was that about? And what is a sensitive feline to do?
This is what we did. Purrfectly sensibly, we decamped to the spare bedroom and curled up on some old friends. Like you do…
comfee and cosee and trying to ignore Things Going On Below
Here’s lookin’ at you…Marmers, put your tongue away!
Marmers shows his disdain and also his lovely clean toothypegs.
All quiet today so far…
