The Housekeeper, it has to be said, is getting more than a little tardy when it comes to blog entries these days! She is sorry, it isn't intentional. She is currently on stage again in another show, based on the Eurovision Song Contest and is representing Latvia as a Pirate, Norway as a Dwarf and Israel as a Polar Bear. DONT ASK!!!!

The Four Abyssinians are in their element as a) playmate James is back to stay with us again. He is the 16 year old son of The Housekeeper's school friend from "Home" and is helping backstage with the show.

The other positive is that The Housekeeper isn't working this week so there has been lots of time to both snuggle and play together.

The only down side appears to be The Housekeepers inability to get out of bed in the morning or getting her to respond to the numerous licks and snuggles to get breakfast on the go as she is up late and wide awake because she has been performing and is still on an adrenalin high.

We four are working on this ......

Fawn Friday

Not to be outdone by Dino last Sorrel Sunday .....

and, yes, The Housekeeper does have to own up that she did balance Jasper's tail on his paw for him, but it did stay there for quite some time!!

Its been quite a Friday for Jasper. The Housekeeper had a mate round for coffee this morning and Jasper decided to make him welcome by laying on his side next to Andy's motorbike boots and cuddling his ankle whilst chewing the boot laces.

Thank You

Amber would like to take the opportunity to say hello and Thank You, for all the lovely messages of support to both her and The Housekeeper whilst she wasn't feeling too great with that damm scratchy ear.

Life is SOOO much better without the horrid collar to have to contend with and she can now sneak behind the back of the bed at night, as well as headbutt The Housekeeper without taking a chunk of skin out of her neck every night with the edge of the collar.

She is a very happy and content young lady at the moment but if anyone should even dare to mention the words "collar" or "VET" she wont apologise for her actions :-)

Back to Business

Yup, The Housekeeper's made it through France and Germany and home again and now its back to blog business as usual. All Four Abyssinians were impeccably behaved whilst being looked after by the "Grandparents" and, unusually, there are absolutely NO accidents, incidents or stories to report. Well, not cat related anyway!

The exhaust fell off the car - the bracket sheered but it was fixed within 24 hours and the 6 small candles on the metal candelabra in the conservatory melted in the unusually high British summer temperatures into a pool of molten wax - on the carpet. The Housekeeper isn't too pleased with that one.

Amber is now collar free after two days of selective collar wearing and is like a new cat. Perhaps we shouldn't type too soon, but she has been very cuddly with The Housekeeper and both Housekeepers are keeping a very close eye on her to tell her off if she starts scratching again.

Needless to say, next to no sleep was had by either of The Housekeepers when they returned home from holiday. No one sulked. Everyone came straight up for cuddles and didn't leave either of the humans alone for even 5 seconds for fear of them going out again.

The Housekeeper is slowly catching up on everyone else's news, in between work and the holiday washing.
