The Cats that allow me to share their lodgings.

Souki is a very lay back fellow. He has a a golden labrador who is his friend next door. I have tried to take some photos of them hanging out have not managed so far. Will keep trying however.
Souki tried to go on the daily walk with Dan and his owners one day. They had to return him home.

Nowadays I always keep my eye out to watch this does not happen again. He also followed me almost to the shopping centre one day, I had to bring him home. I believe he thinks he is a dog sometimes.
My Sally actually did mother them both when they were tiny kittens. Perhaps she imprinted on him a little.

Polgara the girl, who is fiesty and can be the boss if it suits her to be. She climbs up everywhere and oftenneeds to be deterred with a water spray from this habit , she does not mind what she knocks off shelves if they are in her way.. She is more highly strung than he . They are both lovely natured and great company for me.

Whose bed is this I wonder, I don't think it
belongs to me, although I am allowed to share it.
They are very loving to each other most times and curl up together to sleep when the weather is cool.
They also groom each other which is a sight to behold.
When they curl very close for warmth on a cold day or night it is difficult to see where cat ends and the other
one begins.
They are not allowed to be outside at night, they
keep pretty much indoors during the day as well
though do explore a little, if I am in the
garden so are they, helping by batting the weeds I am pulling up.
Or laying on the plants which is just great.
They also supervise me hanging the washing on the line.

Several men are in the locker room of a golf club. A cell phone on a
bench rings and a man engages the hands free speaker-function and begins to

Everyone else in the room stops to listen.

MAN: "Hello"

WOMAN: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"

MAN: "Yes"

WOMAN: "I am at the mall now and found this beautiful leather coat.
It's only $1,000. Is it OK if I buy it?"

MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."

WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 2007

models. I saw one I really liked."

MAN: "How much?"

WOMAN: "$90,000"

MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."

WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing .. The house I wanted last year
is back on the market. They're asking $950,000"

MAN: "Well, then go ahead an d give them an offer of $900,000. They
will probably take it. If not, we can go the extra 50 thousand."

WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you so much!!"

MAN: "Bye! I love you, too."

The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him
in astonishment, mouths agape.....

He smiles and asks: "Anyone know who this phone belongs to.

Three Brazilian Soldiers

Donald Rumsfeld's successor Robert Gates briefed the President this
He told Bush that Three Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq. To
everyone's amazement, all of the color ran from Bush's face, then he collapsed onto his desk, head in hands, visibly shaken, almost whimpering.
Finally, he composed himself and asked Gates,
"Just exactly how many is a brazillion?"

Pretty kitties!

My hubby would love Souki. He always says that the best kind of cats are those that act like dogs.

I LOVE the cell phone joke.
What a riot!

I think a brazillion is equal to ten gabillion.

HORIZON said...

l don't think there's any room left in that bed Margaret- you may have to sleep in another room! ;)
Beautiful cats you have and so nice to see your camera up and running???
The locker room joke is funny- if only!
And as for those Brazilians- lol!
l am dead on my feet tonight- heading to bed now.
Take care and hope you are dreaming away nicely.

your cats are SO beautiful, I miss my Madam... sometimes I think cats are so 'humnan' in their behaviour. When Madam was alive, and we had a Doberman dog called Ms... they used to share a bean bag in the kitchen. Madam would clean and groom the dog, before they settled down to sleep, it was a treat to watch.

That brazilian joke is hilarious, I sent it straight off to Noel, he loves Bush.. not.

Peter said...

Hi Margaret, good to see photos on your blog again great jokes.

Lee said...

What lovely cats they are, Margaret. My two take over my bed too...they think it belongs to them. And they curl up together and groom each other as well. They're both the same age...twins/brother and sister.

Mine are in every night and they spend most of their time indoors during the days now, too...which I like. They're both big sooks! ;)

My Arthur is also thinking he is a dog he walks me to the neighbor when I go there and when Mr. Gattino walked the neighbor's dog he also followed ! He even walks with the postman from mail box to mailbox ! Our beds are always crowded too !

Granny said...

Beautiful kitties. One of the neighborhood cats dropped in to give birth in our living room and we now have 3 kittens. I think I have homes for them.

Love the last joke. There's more truth there than makes me comfortable.

Christina said...

I have one cat, who also follows us everywhere. We took a walk the other day and the cat stayed right with us the whole time. He is very affectionate and great with my 2 yr old.

LOL at "brazillion"

Jim said...

Happy Easter, Margaret!
When you get a chance, please look at the cat staying at our house right now. She was this week's blog topic.
