Ha ha



Sirius jumped on the bed this morning when I was still in it. He purred a lot, rubbed his head enthusiastically against my hand and then lay down, leaning on my ear and vibrating contentedly and VERY LOUDLY into my ear-drum.

“Who says cats are aloof?” I said. “You’re not aloof, are you, Sirius?”

“No, he’s a cat,” said Mr Life.

Groan.

I enjoy your posts and cat photos so very much, Isabelle. :) I hope you had a lovely New Year's Eve! :)

He's the best looking Loof I've seen in a long time!

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Haha! This reminds me of a poster that says," Be ALERT! The nation needs Lerts."

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog and happy new year.

Drat! Lone Grey Squirrel got in first - I was about to say that Sirius was clearly a lert. But never a lone.

You look so sleepy and cute.

Loofs don't make such good pets.

Happy New Year, Isabelle, and all the Life clan!

Mr. Life is very bad! Those kitties are definitely not Loofs! (Which reminds me, I forgot to say how much I LOVED the pic of the two of them peeking through your railing a few posts back. You must have that camera tied to your wrist to get such wonderful shots!) I smiled too, at your mention of the prawns -- Scruff should be so lucky! Happy, Happy New Year to the Life family -- and may they all be back in Edinburgh soon!

I was looking at your kitty pictures, they are so sweet. The 2 of them seem to spend a lot of time together. I love it.
Happy New Year!

That joke reminded me of the old "Please be alert! This country needs more Lerts!"
sorry....

I have been enjoying catching up on all your delightful posts, & those wonderful cat pictures. What a lovley boy Sirius is!!
Happy Happy 2009 to All the Lifes.

LOL! Darling cats...Topsy does a similar thing, jumping up on the bed, with all her bees buzzing (my MIL's description of cats purring) and then snuggling in as close as she can, purring all the while.

Can you get pure bred Loofs? What colour are they? I expect photos...

I think my OC and your Mr. Life would get along very well. Paper hoarding in common and now groan inducing witticisms!
