Bestest snowy winter EVER!!!

Mum:  Just a v quick note before we begin, pointing out that Tara is 3yrs old, and has seen 3 whole winters.  So her idea of 'best EVER!' isn't v extensive...   Tara: Hello Aunties! It is all rainywetsoggy outside to today, so we went with Mum and Dad to the pub and had steak bits and 100%burgerbits, but it is too cold and horrible for a walk, Mum says.  So instead, I have to get to tell you all about our blizzards, and snowy drifts and exciting Wild Artic Weather wot we have

We have our OWN sausage place now!

Cato: You know how Mum and Dad sometimes drag us into sausage places, and we get bored under the table while they stuff their faces with lovely food and drink stuff, and then after agesandagesandages we get to go outside and have some sausage wot they saved for us? Don't get me wrong, I like the sausages!  And the steak.  And the 100percentbeefyburgers and the bits of chicken. But now we have OUR OWN sausage place! And it is only 10mins walk from home!  So we can take Mum for

Town Park and Stinky Flowers

Tara: Hi Aunties!!!!  We have been off doing interesting stuff and sleeping and eating and everything, so we've been far too busy to blog. But today we only had a visit to Mam (that is Dad's Mum) and a walk round the park, so I get to blog for you and show AuntieCrystal flowers.  Did we tell you that Pop died?  It happened in a hospital near Christmas.  We are all sad about it.  He used to mess up my sprouts and call me a boy, but I did love him.  Mam is sad about it too.  So we g

Mum's Day

Hello Aunties! It is Mother's Day here, so me and Dad and Tara put our Thinking Hats on and decided wot to get for Mum on her day. So we got her some chocolates.  Dad says I have to tell you the were expensive and posh chocolates by somebody called Lindt, so that you know we love Mum very very much.  And Mum likes chocolate.  So that is OK. And then we got me... er... Mum a new cushion.  It has a picture of a very sexy babe on it.  And I chose it specially.  I like Mum'

Burger, beef rib and sleep disturbance

Cato: hello Aunties!  How are you? I am very well thank you!   It was all wet and soggy today, so Mum and Dad said ‘no walk!’  but they said they would go out Hunting and bring some prey back. i wanted to help, cos i am an excellent Hunter, but i think they were sensible to leave Tara behind, cos she always mucks everything up, and doesn’t have proper Hunting Instincts, like me.  So then I had to stay with her! Cos she always gets silly if she is left alone. But even without

Horrble Mum Stuff

Cato: Oh Aunties!  It was awful. usually when Mum stops her Work Stuff at lunchtime, we have a nice sniffy walk.  I thought we were going to have TWO walks today, cos Dad took us for breakfast at the Sausage Place.  So I was getting all waggy excited and thinking about that lamp post on the corner that needs A LOT of sniffing. But then lunchtime comes, and Mum GRABS me!  And she carries me through to the grooming table!  And she does footsie torture!  No walk!  No sniffing!  There

I’m perfick!

Tara: I just got back from a trip to Mrs Vet. it was ACE!!! I took Dad there.  For my nasty prickle jab wot i have to have every year.  I don’t like that bit. But I had to sit in the waiting room for agesandagesandages and i got masses of fuss and attention.  One nice lady said i had ‘rad piggies!’ (They are purple and pink stripey ones today).  And then we went in to see Mrs V and she woz nice too.  She says i have excellenty toofies for my age, all clean and white and shine

Blindsided

Just been watching an episode of Elementary.  There was a scene in a cat cafe, with a male tabby sitting bolt upright proudly  recieving worship. It was Sidney.  Size, posture, head angle, markings.  Hit me like a bolt form the blue. of course, it wasn’t him.  As soon as he turned his face towards the camera his face was wider, and the eyes narrower. but my goodness, do we ever get over it?

November holiday - Whitby part 1

Cato: Hello Aunties!  And especially AuntieCrystal @PipsMom, cos we are blogging so that she has something to read when she feels like it.  And for UncleMartin @megabit so that he can read it too. So we went away on holiday.  It was AGES ago, so I don't know if I can really remember all that much.  But Mum says she will show me the pics and then I can try and tell you all about it. We stayed in this place. https://www.sykescottages.co.uk/cottage/North-York-Moors-Coast-Aislaby

Sat 18th Nov 17: Our FAB stormy walk

Tara: So, this walk happened AGES AGO, but I was too busy being me and sleeping and stuff to blog it before now.  I mean, we have been on holiday and stuff, and I want to tell you all about that, but Mum says I have to tell you about our stormy walk first.  Booorrrriiiingggg!  But I am going to, cos I am a good girl. Mum says she put the stormy skypics up already, so I just need to tell you about my benches and my mud and my mountains. This is the firstest mountain of the day.  Ca

Bestest food day EVER!!!

Tara: Oh Aunties, yesterday my tummy was sooooo full.  It was FAB!!! It started off with breakfast.  Cos Mum was doing chicken wings, and she knows that I like the pointy triangle bits wot are on the end.  So she skissers them off for me.  There were some on the floor, so I hoovered them up.  Cato missed out cos he doesn't like raw chicken bits.  He is weird. So then it woz breakfast proper time.  And Mum puts our food in the bowls and stands back.  Only she made some kind of mist

Stormy Skies

Mum: Today's walk was a beach walk. I will let Tara tell you all about it later, but I just wanted to post a few of the sky pics I took because they are pretty amazing. We set off in the car to a blue sky and high white clouds, but in the 10 minutes it took to drive to the beach the dark rainclouds were rolling in... It was a proper bank of cloud, carrying rain (but not a downpour).  Hardly more than a shower. And then it rolled away again. l

Wed 15th Nov: Tunneling with Mum

Cato: Dad had to go do shifty stuff, so we took Mum round the big lake and down the tunnel.  It was just starting to muddify, and the sky was really grey. To start with, Mum said 'We are sticking to the path today, cos of all that rain we had.'   But then we walked past the tunnel entrance, and she stopped and had a think.  And she decided that maybe we could try the tunnel and see if we sank in the mud. But it really wasn't very muddy at all!  I think Tara was a

Cato would qualify for Mensa

Mum: Tara found a bone under the couch this evening. I am not proud of this, but there we are.  I run the kind of house where bones are, occasionally, found under couches.  At least it made Tara happy. One bone. Two dogs.  Finders keepers.  So obviously Cato wasn't quite so cheerful. It took a while, but eventually he managed to organise things to his satisfaction:  First he sat and watched Tara chewing.  Then he sat and had a think.  Then he went over to the doorway and sat

Sun 12th Nov 17: Storm incoming!

Tara: It was FAB!!!! We went out to the sausage place with Mum and Dad.  It woz windy and cold and blue sky sunny and sniffy and fun.  The wind swirled around my knickers and I was all bouncy and hoppy, and nearly tripped Mum up.  And we were looking for cats EVERYWHERE!!! The floor is always too clean! But then when we had sat under the table for AGES and had our water and our treats and our sausages, we went outside and look! The sun had disappeared! T

Sat 11th Nov 17: Sniffy alley

Tara: My turn!  Dad has to go and do his shifty work today really early - like just after lunch.  So we had to take him and Mum out for our walk this morning.  It was sniffy road walking too, not running-about-on-grass, cos Dad needed to get some bread stuff for his tea at work.  But I love my Dad and I didn't mind.  Besides.  There were CATS!!! This is cat 1. we couldn't see it, but we could sniff it!  Cato did his Hunting Thing.  All quivery and pulling at the leash.  And

Fri 10th Nov 17: Yay! Town Park, flowers, pics n stuff

Cato: I have to blog this one Aunties, cos Tara is sulking.  She says there aren't enuff pics of her.  But I think there are more pics of her than me - and lots of pics of flowers.  But I mustn't complain, cos it meant Mum and her new camera and me and Tara and Dad all had a really nice walk. Mum says that everyone should notice the focus n stuff.  Just nod.  That is what I do.  It makes her happy. This was some very good sniffing.  And those leaves on the path are get

Mum's new camera delight

Yesterday the light was awful, so I just played with the software.  Had to download new Firmware, which was a new experience! Anyway, these were taken in the garden during my lunch break 10 mins ago, and now here they are for your delectation. The sky really is that grey, and the light really is that dull.  But the colours seem very true.  I didn't phaff with zooming in or anything, just bent down close to the flowers and snapped away. These are my pretty little cyclamen, valiantl

Mum's camera woes

Mum: Going to show you one of the reasons why the blogging has been missing lately. About a month ago my lovely Nikon Coolpix S33 camera died.  It had been losing battery charge very rapidly, and I had changed the rechargeable battery once, to no improvement.  Then it decided to not switch off, and just blink a light at me until the battery ran down.  It still charged, but then it just ran the battery flat immediately afterwards. So, new camera.  Which arrived and I instantly thou

Aunties, it isn't right!

Cato: You know how much we love Mum and Dad.  We do!  And we love walking and sniffing and snuggling and wrestling with pythons and EVERYTHING.  So we are happy.   We are. But... we used to do more walks.  Back when Mum was taking dictation and me and Tara were blogging every day, it was HARD work! But we got to go out all the time, and went to interesting sniffy places.  Different every day.  And it was hot and sunny and nice.  And muddy and fun. For ages and ages and ages we hav

Grandad's Garden

Cato: Hello Aunties.  This blog is me cos Tara can't remember so far back.  I can remember cos these pics were taken the day that my wonky leg was unwonked.  So I will never ever ever forget.  We went out for a pic walk in Grandad's Garden just before I met nice MrMcT and he unwonked me. Last time we went to stay with Grandad and Grandma, the garden looked very different.  There was a whole new flowerbed wot was all bare earth which is good for widdling and scratting, cos Grandad had o

My antenner

Tara: Hello Aunties! We had a FAB walk yesterday.  We only went out to do an Autumn Photo Shoot for me, so I can be a Supermodel again, and look fab.  Mum did my hair up in a new style and everything. Cato larffed at me and said that Carrera rocks this look much better than me.  But he is just jealous.  Cato I mean, not Carrera.   Can you see my hair? This is when we were catching up with Mum.  Cato was doing a silly walk at the time, and worrying Mum in case his w

My MrMcT treatment

Cato: Hello Aunties!  Now that Tara has stopped fussing about her feet, I can tell you about my visit to my new VetDoctor.  Mum says he is called MrMcT which is short for him being a McTimoney somethingorother. He was nice. Tara didn't come in with me!  Yay!  So she wasn't squeaking and getting in the way and wanting fuss, and I had Mr MrMcT all to myself.  He got down on the floor to see me, which I liked, so I didn't have to stand on that horrible high vet table. He did stu

Ticklish Foots

Tara: Me again! Cato says he needs a whole blog to himself to tell you all the boring stuff about his Special VetDoctor stuff wot I didn't go to, and they won't tell me all about cos it is so dull i just fall asleep. Anyway, cos he's going to be hogging the blogging talking all about him, i can squeezify in first and tell you about my ticklish foots. No pics again.  Even though Mum says my foots are Perfick and pink and black and fluffy white and she wants to kiss my paw pads

Walk stuff

Tara: My turn!  Cato has been hogging the blogging lately, so I get to tell you all how awesome I am.  And wot fun we had.  and stuff like that.  And there are more skypics for AuntieCrystal too. This bloggification is about 2 different walks, cos that is how clever I am!  I can do two walks at once! This is when we went the Big Lake Park, and Mum accidentally picced all the wrong things.  She picced birds and flowers and Cato and all the boring stuff.  But there isn't a single pi
