I will refrain from mentioning mistress's lack of success at sorting anything computer related.

About the only thing I have noticed her do recently is mop the floors - and write stuff on her blogs.

We received a Holiday card the other day. I was pleased about that, I have not lost hope that one day - preferably before next Holidays - she will actually print some cards for me.

Anyway, just so pups don't forget who I am, I thought I would mention some fine cat stories. Well, cat stories anyway.

Mistress went down the town the other day and came back smelling of C.A.T.

Apparently there is a rather sleek and gorgeous black one who hangs around the court buildings in Main Street. Master seems to think he is feral but he certainly looks well-fed to Misery Mistress.

She stood there for ages talking to him - get this - and making silly cat noises so that he came and purred to her, and rubbed himself against her. Just as well she was ill-prepared and didn't have the camera. Next she would be wanting to put it on my blog.

Really mistress, you need to get a life. Without cats. The only one to communicate with cats around here is ME.

So last week, we all skipped out for our evening walk. On our way we met our neighbour across the road, who feeds lots of feral cats and adopts them too.

Other people stopped to say hello to me, as I like to be sociable and make new friends. One woman went off in one direction and then came back again to say a double hello. Hehe, what a charmer I am.

Then mistress decided to go to a boring lecture with one of the people we met. Yawn. Master and I went back to our flat for a snoozelet.

Our best trip though happened when Misery actually took the camera for once. I avoided the camera. (As usual).



Misery took a picture of a ship. (As usual). Apparently it is a destroyer. I wonder if it destroys cats?

The cat destroyer (I think).

Then we went home and there was a C.A.T. under the car just outside our block. I tried to get it, but master was not having a bar of it.

Anyway, we went out later again when it was dark, and took a different route.

And there, just outside Trafalgar Cemetery was another of the little terrors. I tried to dig my claws into the pavement and pull master towards it, but no, another unsuccessful cathunt. Still at least Misery was too slow to take a photo.

Always important to check for cats everywhere.

There are cats somewhere, I know. I just need to be let off the lead to get them all.

Maybe we can trade moms, ours hates mopping floors!!!

We don't see cats too often here but we hear they are dreadful critters.

Hi Pippa

Have a good weekend.

Mason Dixie said...

I am still not sure what a cat is? I have never been around one. Would I like them? or eat them? =)

Darling Pippa,
I have to confess. I really don't mind cats. I'm not saying that I like them but basically just ignore them.

The Army of Four said...

They have special ships just to destroy cats?!? Wow. I wonder if I could get one of those.
PS: You look so handsome, Pippa!!!!

Anonymous said...

hmmmm! I have known a Cat Destroyer in my time.

I will tell you more tomorrow, dear Pippa,

My Mistress has not been feeling at all well, so I have to stop typing here, the keyboard tapping is disturbing her sleep.

She thinks it may have been the extreme cold or something, but she has a very painful head and eye.

Which has meant silence, and an early bed.

More tomorrow, when she is feeling better I hoperoonie.

Oooooonie xxxxxxxx

Amber said...

The Cat Destroyer...YES, I think so! ;) I will board that ship any day! :) Ok, I have never really met a cat but I imagine I would feel the same as you. Happy Hunting! ;)


Lorenza said...

Hola Pippa!
I have seen cats here and I like to play with them but they don't!
Kisses and hugs

Amber-Mae said...

I like it when my hoomies smell like cat. Generally, I like the smell of cats especially cat butts. They smell like, woah! But we're very friendly towards them but I like to chase the stray ones. Sooper fun!

You should always keep one eye open for cats. Have a great weekend.

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

I keep both eyes open for cats, and my m***h, ssssh, don't tell anyone Pippa, keep it between ourselves.

My Jeannie was not going to go on the blogs today as she has not felt well and has lots of housey wifey things to do, but you see, one tea break and she cannot keep away!

Have a good weekend, lotsaluv Marvin xxxxxx Marvin Snow Nose.

Fred said...

I hate it when my Old Girl comes home smelling like Cat! I agree that I should be the only one to "converse" with them!

Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

We love chasing cats, too!

Charlie said...

In my experience, the catching is not nearly as much fun as the chase. All that hissing... all those nasty little claws... Not that I ever REALLY caught one -- no way am I getting THAT close!

Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

Shiloh loves to chase cats and almost caught one once. I don't mind them - I used to live with one actually and it was annoying but tolerable. Not sure what Bacci would do with one, and mom isn't sure she wants to find out.

I particulalry like the picture of you thinking - so handsome! sigh...

Love & Snoses, Guinness Grrl

JB's Big World said...

Do you still like me Pippa?
I have tears in my eyes....I thought you were my friend. You are just kidding about wanting to get all the cats, right?

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hmmm.. I don't mind cats that much and even tried playing with them.. and I was rewarded but a terrifying hissing noise and the cat puffed up. I don't think they like to make friends with me.. you think?

Scarlett said...

Did you get any?

Pedro said...


So I take it you don't like cats? I live with two cats and they're pretty good friends of mine. They like Ziggy better than me but still they're ok.


Sophie Brador said...

I saw one of those blasted cats just last night, hiding under the neighbours stairs. I gave it a good snarl, but mom had me on my leash and I couldn't properly pursue it. Just once, I'd like to have a go at one of those cats. On second thought, I seem to recall that I have done that and it usually hurts.


Helios said...

I like cats... but strangely I think they all don't like me. I wonder why....


Hi Pippa,
Sorry its been so long since we last stopped by. Mum doesn't spend so much time these days on our blog. Something about being busy with school!! We have a lot of cats in the park here. We are not so sure about them though as some can get quite aggressive!
Happy Valentine's Day

Quinvale AstaLaVista Baby said...

G’day Pippa,

Lola Smiles said...

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Happy Valentine sweet Pippa
Hope your Valentines Day is filled with extra kisses, treats, hugs & belly rubs!

Jacks, Narra, Tuchuck, and Rousseau said...

Pippa, we're so glad you use your charmer powers for good and not evil. We're not sure where we stand on the cat thing, actually, we've a met a few that were positively K9. :)

Cheers, guapo!


Orable and Charlie said...

Hi Pippa - I cannot imagine a cat destroyer - hmm.... Have a great week

licks & slobbers

Jacks, Narra, Tuchuck, and Rousseau said...

Hola, Guapo! We were thinking of you: the human was eating toast and would not share. We thought, "Surely he would share with Pippa." :)


BenTheRotti said...

Hey Pippa,

I love a good cat hunt myself, the little beggars are fast though!

Hope you are doing good buddy.

JB's Big World said...

Did the cats gang up on you and take you away? Miss you Pippa!

Helios said...

I just posted about cats too! My M does not let me go after kitty cats too.

Jake of Florida said...

Hey Pippa,

We've been missing you and your mistress and wanted to see whether you were OK -- or had been spirited away by a large and feral C.A.T. doG forbid!!

Wirey woofs, pal!!!

Jake and Just Harry

Rockford said...

Pippa, Rocky and I have been wondering what you have been up to... what an exciting life you live. We miss out on all the fun! I think that CAT destroyer came thru here - we don't see many cats.

You are the charmer! I would stop and say hello to you more than two times ;-)

Stay well!

Cheers, Mati

Natasha Fernz said...

Hey Pippa,

you've been awfully quiet on the blogging scene!!! Get your Mistress to do some work for you...

Anyway my Mommy will be running for The Mayhew this year in the British 10k London Run - so will need all the support she can get.

Please "sponsor my mommy" to raise funds for The Mayhew.Details on our site...


Momo and Pinot said...

How have you been, Pippa?? You probably enjoy nice and warm weather... it's still chilly here in Toronto. We want to move to where you live!!
