Sunny Caturday; Scorcher Sunday; More on Monday

The title refers to last weekend but I am late with this post because Mummy has been hunting; very unusual as she is rather old but it was a special request.

Yes, we have had three days of really hot (for the UK) sunny weather at last!

On Saturday and Sunday, there was a River Festival here - very noisy and crowded but the humans seem to enjoy that - so I curled up in my favourite sunspot until late evening when lots of flashy lights and bangs started coming out of the sky - time for a hasty retreat to one of my hidey holes where my kind Mummy had put some special treats.

It has been quiet since then but guess what? Friday is my Gotcha Day - two years and Mummy says each day is the best yet! I agree!!

Purrs ... Rainbow.

(A little) Sun on Sunday; Monsoon Monday

Hello everyone, it's Rainbow here!

Thank you KC for mentioning me on the Cat Blogosphere; lots of wonderful kitties and woofies have come to visit - I shall be dropping in to see you all over the next few days. Meanwhile, I have been busy posting replies on my blog to all your comments but I am not sure whether you are able to pick them up!

Yes we actually had some sun yesterday! I found cosy spots by several windows and curled up for some long warm naps.

Mummy said that as it was St Swithun's Day and not wet we should get good weather from now onwards but today it is back to "normal" - rain, rain and still it comes pouring down.

Several of you have asked whether I am responsible for that flashing "picture-machine" needing to go to the camera V-E-T - well, things with long dangly straps are cat toys, aren't they ? ...

Caturday Review

Hello, Rainbow reporting ...

Here is my review of the last seven days.

On Sunday morning, there were a great many very excited humans outside our house waiting for the Olympic Torch to come by. Mummy was going out to join them but it poured with rain (an almost perpetual situation here in the UK this year - it makes me so glad to be an indoor cat), so we both went upstairs and watched from one of our third floor windows. She took some photos of the crowds and the procession, but none of me!!

After all that noise, I was very pleased that Monday and Tuesday were quiet days with plenty of hugs and cuddles and lots of purrs - I love you, Mummy.

On Wednesday and Thursday, we were sorting out some documents so I "helped" by acting as a paperweight.

Friday, you already know about and today Mummy has been cooking which means treats for me.

Altogether, not a bad week - I hope to add some photos to this report when Mummy's camera comes back from the camera V-E-T, but that is another story ...

Frustrating Friday

Hello everyone, Rainbow here. First, a very big thank you to all of you who have visited and left comments - what a splendid welcome you have given me. I shall be popping over to see you soon.

Mummy is holding a Meeting here later on and she has been very busy getting ready. I knew something was up when she went shopping yesterday evening and now she is tidying, cleaning and rearranging my favourite room!

I have NOT been helping: after breakfast, I was sick, then I found some slices of roast turkey - delicious! Mummy was cool about the sick but said I was very naughty to have eaten the turkey.

Later ... The humans have gone and guess what I found in my food bowl - the rest of the turkey, so I think I have been forgiven!

I shall snuggle up with Mummy and give her some of my special purrs.

My First Caturday

My name is Rainbow and this is me in the Hall, looking rather startled because I didn't manage to hide when some of Mummy's friends came to visit. I am quite shy and usually escape upstairs when there are too many humans about!

Generally, Mummy makes sure that I am cosily settled (with plenty of treats!) in one of my special places, but this time we were taken unawares.

I am not sure how old I am - I was found and rescued by the wonderful people from the RSPCA who took me to a clinic where my injuries were treated and I was lovingly nursed back to health. After several moves, I met Mummy and came to my "Forever Home" on 27th July 2010 - my Gotcha Day and Official Birthday.

The roads are very busy round here, especially in front of our house, so I am an entirely indoor cat. There are so many cosy hiding places that I love to tease Mummy by finding one which she hasn't discovered and making her search for me - we are never far apart when she is at home. Fortunately, she doesn't have to go out too often and she always hurries back to me - I am very lucky!
