Pastures New...

The kitty kill count in the sidebar is going to be rather uneventful for at least the next month or so. I have just moved house (down to Margate), and so, until they get used to the new place, the Cardinal and Monsignor are not allowed outside...

The cats have been a little freaked out by the whole moving thing - they yowled piteously for a full hour and a half as I drove them down the motorway. When I'm out, the two of them hide behind some boxes together in the darkest corner they can find, and they only seem to come out to explore once I arrive back home. And at night, the two of them sleep on the bed with me. I guess that, in the face of such upheaval, all hostilities are suspended!

It has been very entertaining watching the kitties learn all about laminate flooring. Furretti, in particular, seems to have problems cornering at high speed, and she has missed her intended target a few times as her back feet occasionally slip out from under her when she attempts to jump up,

This morning, Miaowrini saw her first seagull outside the bedroom window, and she got quite excited. Once the catflap is installed and is in operation, I anticipate some interesting additions to the kitty kill count. That's assuming a seagull doesn't dump her in the middle of the North Sea...

Just so long as Miaowrini doesn't come home towing an albatross....

The excellent cheezburger site once had a photo of a disconcerted cat looking in from outside some french windows; just behind him, a large peacock. The caption: "Could you let me back in, please? I am not the mighty hunter I thought I was."

"Miaowrini"

## Is that a typo for "Miaowntini" ?

"Mraaaaatzinger" might not be out of place.

Miaowrini is named in honour of Monsignor Guido Marini... and she miaows a lot.

Furretti's brother was named Cardinal Catzinger...
