Someone else's Cat

I have had a very lazy day to day ....Watched the DVD Nanny Mcphee and really rejoyed it  a pleasant two hours of fantacy....

Was talking to someone about cats today which reminded me of an incident that took place a few years ago.

It was Summer and going to bed opened the windows as it was very warm.

during the night was awakened by something pulling at the bed covers....then I heard the sound of purring...which was strange as I don't have anything that purrs.

Lady my little Yorkshire terrier who we had at the time certainly never purred - Barked - Yapped Yes but never purred...

Sitting up in bed I could see next-door-neighbours cat making a bed in the covers.

I quickly got up and closed the bedroom door as I knew if Lady saw the cat she would of course chase it - and it looked so comfortable and I hated to disturb it.

Anyway it decided to spend the night with me the sound of it's purring was quite comforting and it stretched out as cats do...I was quite sad when it decided it was in the wrong house and leapt out of the window .

Although I left the window open at other times it never did return ....

But while in the garden he would let me stroke him and was very friendly... but he never shared my bed with me again...

PS.   I do want to thank Stuart - Specimen days for all the help he has given me since I started my Journal  anything I needed to know he has always been there to help with advice and the right way to do all the things - that I as a beginner at blogs needed to know...I just need to thank him so  Thankyou Stuart....

I've heard Nanny McPhee is a good film. I don't think I would have disturbed the cat either!! Jeannette.

Funny you should mention that. I'm "cat-sitting" my neighbors' cat, and it's the most finicky little thing. Will only play when IT wants to!

Darn cat.

Your Wedding photo was lovely. Looks as though the Mister had wonderful taste!


Have a good cat-free sleep, ok?

Wonderful wedding photo of a time when things were different .     It is nice that you can share that moment with so many people now that enjoy seeing and sharing those times of yours.   Your story of the visiting cat was funny.   mark

I bet that HURT!!  Where was the security that day?  Usually the kids would have been chased off...glad they are off the streets and back at school now. for you..here they have just broken up.  Lovely house...is it still a private residence?. St Peters looks so grand. What happy memories that street holds for you.  The Farmhouse I lived in for some time ( and it was haunted) as a child is now a holiday home.   Hope your leg heals soon. Eve
