New plant

The humans have changed something. They've bought a new plant into the house. There was no warning that this was going to happen.

It's a weird, green, spiky thing.

I've been up to it and sniffed it. 
I've rubbed myself against it.
I've batted the leaves with my paws.
I bit one of the leaves.

I'll leave it alone for now, but I may have to bite it again if I don't like it.

Rear view

I was watching my tail today.

I watched it flick left.

I watched it flick right.

I watched it flick left.

I watched it flick right.

I watched it flick up.

I watched it flick left.

I licked it.

I watched it flick right.

Then I wondered - is my tail part of me or is it a separate thing?

I licked it again.

Yellow stuff

My humans were eating yesterday, so I went over to see them, or to see what they were eating.

I sat down next to them and pawed towards their plates, until they said 'no, Clive'.

My male human gave me something green to sniff. I didn't want it.

My female human gave me a bit of meat. It was beef. Mmmmm.

My male human gave me a round thing to sniff. It didn't smell of meat. I left it.

Then I pawed at a yellow thing on the table. 
My male human held it out for me to sniff.
I sniffed it and ... whooooop. Too strong. Catty nose spasms.

I did a catty-choo, then another catty-choo, then another catty-choo.
Then I had to do catty headshakes.

What was that yellow stuff?
Why would humans have it with food?
Why did my human hold it out for me to smell?
Idiot.

Blue thing

I found a blue thing on the floor.
I wasn't sure what it was, so I batted it with my paw.
It moved... but I wasn't sure if it moved on its own or my paw moved it.

I pawed it again. 
It moved further.

I batted it across the floor. 
I chased it.
I pounced on it.

I lost my grip on it and it went across the floor again.
I chased it.
I pounced on it.

It didn't seem to respond.
Maybe it's dead. Or hibernating.

I bit it one more time, then got bored and went for a nap.

Two humans

There are two new humans in the house at the moment.
I've been watching them very carefully.

They do odd things, like putting sheets down on the floor, and taking things off the wall in the humans' toilet room.

I have decided to help them, by napping on the sheets and by staring at them.

I've stared at them while they took things off the wall.

I've stared at them while they cut things, outside, using a big, noisy thing.

I've stared at them while they put things back on the wall.

I like staring at them. I hope they stay a bit longer.

Strange corner

I was looking around the room earlier and I spotted a strange corner, on the ceiling. The light fell on it in a funny way.

I stared at it.

I meowed at it.

My human looked at me, then looked where I was staring, and said 'what - what is it?'

I kept staring at the weird corner.

I let out a low yowl.

My human said 'what's wrong? What can you see?'

I kept staring.

I yowled again.

I puffed out my fur.

My human said 'what are you looking at? You're freaking me out'.

I kept staring.

I yowled.

I got bored and walked to my food bowl.

Getting noticed

In all of my years of experience as a cat, I've found out one very important thing: if I want human attention, I has to sit in a doorway.

Today I sat in the doorway to the food room, getting in the way until I was fed.

Later I sat in the doorway to the humans' sleeping room, getting in the way until I got pats on the head and an ear scritch.

I'm now going out, across the road to other humans. I'll sit in their doorways and see what I can get.
