Comparisons - how we have changed over the years

New cat on the block!

Young Oscar, our cousin, has been living with us for quite a few days which has meant something of an upheaval to our lifestyle to say the least! He is, as you will gather, rather a handful - or should I say pawful and was certainly keen to make his mark fairly early on!

Max and I both greeted him with a hiss when he arrived - well we had to make sure that he understood that this was our house and he was just a guest. He didn't appear to be very phased by that as a welcome and proceeded to run around everywhere hunting out our toys. The minimice were an early favourite and he carried them around gaily in his mouth without a care in the world. He gave Max a quick demonstration of his footballing skills and then discovered one of my favourite toffee papers that I was saving for another day!

Nothing seemed to bother him and he even started to play with all of our noisy toys like the mouse that squeaks and the one with a bell on the end of its tail shattering our peaceful Sunday.

At lunchtime on his second day Joan went out shopping and left us all alone in the house. By the time she came back an hour or so later Oscar was fast asleep in the conservatory with Max having won Max over as a playmate.

I was much more hesitant about him - he took liberties and was so small compared to us that I didn't really want to get involved. Joan went to work and left us on day three no doubt worrying what she would find when she returned.

There really wasn't a problem - we slept all day - so by the time she got home we decided to show her that three cats can have much more fun than two. We raced and we chased all around the house for about three quarters of an hour. I chased Max and Oscar chased me, then we would change around then run and hide and leap out at each other. It was enormous fun for us and Joan could only stand and stare!

When we thought she had had enough we stopped and then went to look for somewhere to settle down for a sleep. The obvious place was our favourite climber and needless to say Oscar, being the smallest, picked the largest of the beds and Max had to settle for the back of the chair. Joan seemed to calm down after that and assumed that we were all going to be good friends after all and she realised that all her worrying had been unnecessary!

And so it goes on we eat, we sleep and we play, sometimes all together and sometimes not. It is almost back to normal again only now we have a new playmate who seems to be great fun to have around.

Oscar loves the chairs in the conservatory just like we used to

and just like we did he likes to pose!

So best wishes to all our readers - the terrible twosome have become a lively trio and we promise to keep you posted with our adventures as Oscar settles in and we learn new games and have exciting adventures.

Oscar sends you all a 'HI 5' greeting which is his very special trick!

Oh and thank you for the messages of concern about my little lump after my injections. It has now disappeared of its own accord so I don't have to have an operation to remove it.

Oscar sends you a 'HI 5' greeting
