We haven’t heard much from Basil recently, so here are some photos with his thoughts!
I was sleeping ……..
when asked my opinion on this cat cowl – my reply!
I was peacefully sleeping, when rudely awakened for an opinion on this cat cowl thing. You can see my reply!
Being offered a tasty morsel
I deserve it as i’ve lost weight recently!
Accepting a tasty morsel, as I’m pleased to say I’m finally losing weight. The knitter has been starving me, she doesn’t refill my bowl when it’s empty even when I ask in the cutest way possible!
Trying to ignore a rival for the knitter’s attention, it’s certainly not as cute as me!
I was none too happy with all of this fuss around me. Yes it’s my birthday. Yes I am two years old today. I do not understand the big deal. Then they got the streamers out! As you can see by the photo, I was not too happy about this. However, the humans then got the yummy treats out and I realised that maybe there are benefits to birthdays after all…
“So The Knitter is on a roll once again and has created A Foxy Pillow, as she calls it. I can’t say that I am exactly excited about it, it’s the same size as me! I did my best to pay as little attention to it as possible as I turned my head away and feigned disinterest. Just as long as it knows who is boss around here, which is me, of course. I believe that I make much better company anyway and a much better pet. I have bundles more charm coupled with dashing good-looks, well I’m almost impossible to resist! Maybe I am being too harsh on the fox, it is only a pillow after all.”
Lets talk about the weather. I felt particulary energetic this morning (probably due to this outrageous diet…) and I strolled out of my room only to discover gale force winds and lashes of rain to greet me. I was not impressed in the slightest. I decided that I was definately NOT venturing outside and camped underneath an umbrella by the cat flap. I am not too sure why an umbrella was strategically placed by the cat flap indoors, I think it was a hint for me to brave the dreaded outdoors and get some exercise. No thank you. I’m very happy underneath this umbrella…
My new found hiding place
Eventually, my family got sick of my dithering and I was made to go outside. They have no pity! The winds nearly blew me over and the rain ruined my perfectly brushed fur. However, I found a dry spot that I could take refuge under from the weather’s onslaught.
I found a dry spot!
Finally, I was allowed to return into the warm house and a pack of treats was the first thing I saw, waiting for me. Hmm maybe my family aren’t so strict on my diet after all!
I move to investigate the treats. Now, how to open it?
A quick update on The Knitter, it seems that she is making boot toppers now. What in the world are ‘boot toppers’?!
This shockingly hurtful diet that I have been put on still continues. I was hoping that it would just be a phase that my owners were having, they saw me getting a bit podgy and cut down my food. Little did I know that these small rations of biscuits that reach my bowl in the morning were to stay. I look pleading up for more but, no. The response I get is “No Basil. That’s all for now”. Ha! They said that a few months ago. When will this dreadful diet end?!
Moving on to more pressing matters, Halloween is approaching! Time for those incredibly annoying trick or treaters to pay us a visit. I am to be awoken from my cat nap every 5 minutes to cries of “Trick or treat!” Noisey children, cruel diets and The Knitter constantly snapping pictures of me, oh its a hard life!
I will leave you now with this particularly threatening picture of yours truly, this will scare off those pesky trick or treaters!
The Knitter gets the camera out – I pull my most threatening yawn
Nothing is safe from Basil!
Basil seems fairly shocked at my latest creation, unless he is trying to replicate the expression of the owl, I’ll never know. They do look quite alike though, don’t they?
I think I look much more handsome than “The Knitter’s” creation
- The hat and bootie set!
A long time has passed since “The Knitter” has bothered to log onto WordPress and publish a post. Therefore, I (Basil, the cat) have decided to take over the blog posting. My insulting diet is now in full swing and the treats are locked and bolted away, despite my protests. The cat food that reaches my bowl has been unfairly reduced. However, I am very fond of my new impressive figure!
