Winter Warmth

The days are drawing in and the Abyssinians are all finding it as hard as The Housekeeper to wake up and get out of bed each morning as it is so grey outside. Indeed, on a number of occasions recently, The Housekeeper has come in from the workshop, mid morning to find all four cats back in bed after breakfast.

The summer sun basking has been replaced with curled up balls of fur in all the radiator hammocks and, if allowed, in the bottom of the linen basket during the day, with everyone barr Amber cuddling up under the duvet at night. This leads to happy, contented, purring Abyssinians but does not always lead to a good night's sleep for the humans. The housekeeper often wonders why she bothered buying any cat beds.

The onset of winter has also seen a new toy in the Aby House. The Housekeeper has started knitting again and the Abyssinians cannot resist the moving wool. This does not prove a very relaxing break from work for The Housekeeper but it has meant that a usually aloof Dino has been very happy to sit on The Housekeeper's lap and has earned the new nickname of "craft cat"

  1. I have always been a late sleeper, no matter the season! I even get up later than my human, who is the next-to-last to get up!
