We have two fish tanks in the house, one tropical (upstairs), and one marine (downstairs). Lilith is very fond of the marine tank, due to its whizzy lights, and likes to sit on it. The fish (all called George) don’t seem to mind, but they don’t say much, so who knows. Should you wish to […]

We were just settling down to sleep last night – indeed, I had almost drifted off – when there came an unseemly scrabbling from under the bed. For various reasons (mostly lack of space) we have a number of Things stowed under the bed, and the scrabbling indicated at least one cat doing … Something. […]

As Pete posted elsewhere this morning: “For various reasons, I’ve been considering Lilith this morning, and in the online part of that consideration was led to this. Seems appropriate, really, except that Lily doesn’t even *purr*.” The philosopher Wittgenstein said — or I’ve seen him quoted as saying — that if a lion could talk, […]

Lily is having a hard-ish time of it right now – Henry has been bullying her for a few months. Not constantly, but enough to make her life uncomfortable from time to time, and now Ron is starting to join in now and again. However, Lilith is a stalwart, and takes it  pretty much all […]

As I strolled back from the post box yesterday, I encountered Lily, about 50 yards or so up the road from the house, on the other side of the road. Being fed chickie! by an old lady, who apparently does this on a daily basis. And bikkit too. I told her that Lilith was our […]

Lilith sitting on my Swiss Ball chair Originally uploaded by ramtops A bunch of the local children have really taken to the Tribe; they assemble outside the house to visit the cats, who spend a fair amount of time in the street because that’s where the sun falls during the day. I went out to […]

Suzanne was kind enough to enquire after Lily, and I realised I had been remiss in not updating her fans. She is pretty much restored to full health now, thank you, but first she shared her cold with Henry and Ron. Being rude mechanicals rather than pedigrees, they shook it off within the week, whereas […]

Lilith is snuffling and sneezing, and has slightly runny eyes. We’re not sure whether it’s a cold, or an allergy maybe – she’s eating, but she wants company and comfort, which is unusual for her (to put it mildly). So I went to bed early last night with a book, and carried her upstairs with […]

I think they were protesting our culpability at letting it rain outside at this point. That and the utterly inadequate and, what’s more, inedible supplies of food downstairs.

We have a large bedroom here, with two tall, south facing windows, so the sun streams in there during the day (when it shines at all, of course).  We set a chair that is very like, but is not, an Ikea Poang by one of the windows – it’s a nice quiet place if one […]
