The new year is coming...

...and I think I can see it approaching!


Pups and kitties who are scared of fireworks, please make sure your people keep you safely indoors tonight. I don't want to wake up tomorrow and find out some of you have gone missing.

In the garden

I hope everyone had a good time at my birthday yesterday.

Huffle 205

I have been looking at the plants in the garden and I think mum needs to take a serious look at this one next to me. It doesn't look too healthy to me.

Today is a very important day in Huffle Mawson land. Today I am Nine!

Huffle 211

My bestest friend Zimmie turned Nine this year too and he said it was pretty good, so I am happy to be turning Nine. We are having some ham to celebrate and you should all celebrate with me! Today is also the fourth anniversary of me adopting mum and dad, so they're pretty happy about that. Get your party hats on and come on over!

My new friend

Do you all remember my friend Domi the Therapy Dog who passed away a few months ago after battling cancer?

Well, her people have adopted a new pup who needed a good home and he has started his very own blog!This is Kane. And if you could go visit him and say hi, that would be really nice. He's still settling in to his new home and getting used to the rules (ha! I told him he has to train his parents, not the other way around). Please tell him he's doing a good job so far.

Boxing Day


Oh I have such a full belleh after Christmas! I don't think I can move.

Happy Christmas!

To all my dear friends: mum, dad and I would like to wish you all the very best for the silly season, and in case we forget next week, a happy new year too.

AA christmas card 2009 with text

I hope you all get lots of ham to munch on, and spend lot of time with your families. I'd like to ask Santa to help all the homeless and lonely pups and kitties to find wonderful new homes like I have, just in time for Christmas.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

How to deal with the pupparazzi

The other day I was minding my own business lying in the garden bed, dreaming about the evil birds, when the pupparazzi showed up.
Deck 71

So I yelled at them and told them to go away.
Deck 72

Only, that didn't work, so I quietly showed them my claws and all of a sudden, no pupparazzi. I wonder why.

Being good

Bed 01

I am practising being really good for Santa. I am just sitting on the bed and not begging dad for dinner before 6pm (see how good I am?) and not even putting the bitey on mum when we play smacky paws.

I'll get a present, right?

The Monday Report

Yesterday, there was some sort of Christmas gathering at my house. My grandma and grandpa came over, and my aunt and her boyfriend. They all ate breakfast - bacon, eggs, sausages, toast, etc - and do you know what I got?


Not even one bite of bacon.

Something is wrong with this picture.

Sundays with Huffle Mawson

Huffle 204

I hear a lot of pups and kitties are having really cold weather at the moment. Since it is sunny and warm here you are all welcome to come and hang out with me. Mum will lay on the Fancy Feast and I hear there is ham for Christmas.

p.s. I was snoopervising the present wrapping festival yesterday and I didn't see anything with my name on it. Should I be worried?

This week's new friend

This week I would like to introduce you all to my new friend Dodo. He is a very happy grey kitty and needs some blogging friends to play with.

Please go and say hello to him.

Friday, December 18, 2009

Finally Friday

Huffle 210

When it's a sunny Friday out on the deck you can watch the birds go by. I will get them one day.

Thursday on the balcony

A man came around a few weeks ago and put this big pipe along the edge of my balcony.

Huffle 208

Dad says the old drainpipe did not reach to the gutter so all the water went across the balcony and that is why it was so dirty. Now there is a pipe that carries the water and my balcony is all clean!

But it makes holding up the wall very difficult.

Not Guilty

No, I was not eating the plants. You all know that is Not Allowed.

Parsley Pot update

I was sitting in my parsley pot the other day, minding my own business, when the pupparazzi stopped by to take my photo.

So I let them take one, and then I was out of there.

A new friend

Everyone, I would like to introduce you to my new friend Donut the Scottish Fold kitty. He is quite adorable. He's been blogging for a few weeks now and hasn't had many visitors so if you could go and say hello to him that would be good.Seriously. How can you resist that face?

Saturday on the fence

I was just Huffling around the other day when those evil birds started laughing at me. So I decided to get them!

Huffle 201

Sadly, they flew away from me.

Huffle 202

So I was going to sit there and wait til they came back. But they didn't and mum made me get down off the fence.

Friday night at the movies

Every night at 10.30pm, I have to remind mum and dad to go to bed. I have a very strict routine and I expect them to follow it.

First, I tell dad it's time for bed. Then I stand on the cord for his mouse and his headphones on his computer, so they pull away from him. This encourages him to turn his computer off. Then I go and sit next to the coffee table, waiting to play the red dot game. I play this until I get tired and throw myself down on the ground. Then we must go upstairs, and that's where the excitement really begins.

My bestest friend Zimmie sent me Mr Mouse a while back. For a while he was my bodyguard but he didn't do a very good job so I changed his job description to "bedtime mouse". The following movie demonstrates what happens every single night at bed time.

Thursday on the balcony

Huffle Balcony 17

After the trauma of Saturday night I didn't know if I would ever be able to face going out on the balcony again, but I couldn't resist. A cat has to snoozervise, you know.

My very cool friends the Kool Kittie Krew gave me an award last week! It's the Kreativ Blogger award and I have to list seven things that you may not know about me.


I have been blogging for a while now so there may not be too many things you don't already know about me, but I will give it a go. If this is old news to you, I'm sorry.
  1. I like to get in the shower and get my paws and tail all wet, then walk all over dad when he's in bed. This is best done in the morning when mum gets out of the shower but dad hasn't gotten out of bed yet.
  2. I was adopted.
  3. I spent three months in the shelter before mum and dad adopted me. They don't know anything about my former life and I don't want to talk about it because it wasn't good.
  4. I do not really like fish very much. Although I LOVED the salmon treats that Addie and Lucie sent me a while back. Shame we can't get them in Australia.
  5. I hate having my photo taken and often move at the very last second when mum is about to take my photo. She takes about 35 bad photos for every good photo. Ha!
  6. My favourite place to sleep in the bed is under the doona between mum and dad. I can be all toasty and comfy.
  7. I like to scoop chocolates out of the bowl on the table and play with them. This annoys mum A LOT.
So that's my seven things. I hope you learned something new. I am supposed to share this with some others so here we go:

Dushi and Paddy
Fui, Suey and Ronny

I am never speaking to mum again

Pups and kitties, you will not believe what mum did to me on the weekend. I am still annoyed about and I don't know if I can forgive her for this.

Saturday night, she and dad were going out for dinner to celebrate her birthday. The balcony door was open and mum shut it and they left the house, got in the car and drove away. But what mum didn't know what that I was out on the balcony! I got locked out there!

I couldn't believe it. I meowed, I cried, I sat and contemplated what to do next. I couldn't go up, I couldn't go down, I was STUCK. Lucky it wasn't raining.

Eventually about three hours later mum and dad came home and I yelled at them from the balcony (which is right above the front door) and they freaked out and opened the front door and dad bolted up the stairs to let me back in. I was very unhappy and I told him so.

Then I came downstairs but I wouldn't talk to mum even though she tried to apologise to me. I don't know if I'll ever get over this.

How should I punish her?

p.s. even though I am not speaking to mum right now, she wants to thank everyone for the birthday wishes.

Mum says I look like a kitten when I sit like this.


What do you think?

Saturday learnings

Huffle 203

Good morning and welcome to my class room. Today I am going to talk about the Huffle Dictionary.

I have invented some very important new words lately and I think we need to write them down and keep track of them. I'm even going to add a special page to my blog up there so we can keep adding words as we come across them.

Here are the first couple.

Snoozervising: (verb) this is a combination of snoopervising and snoozing. It has a high degree of difficulty and is not for the faint hearted.

Huffle: (verb) to walk off in a fit of temper, to walk off in a huffle.

If you think of any more good words to add to my dictionary please let me know.

Happy birthday Mum!

Today is my mum's birthday so I thought I'd be nice and do a proper pose for a photo for her.


I hope she appreciates it since I forgot to tell dad to get me a present for mum.

Happy birthday mum! Can we have some ham to celebrate?

Thursday, December 3, 2009

Thursday on the balcony

This is a multi purpose pose. I am doing my stretches AND holding up the wall (because I am an honorary husky and therefore a working breed).

Huffle Balcony 38

It's a tough job but somecat's gotta do it.

Tuesday, December 1, 2009


I was running up the stairs and mum said "Huffle, Huffle!" and I turned around because I thought she maybe had some ham or some roast chicken for me.


But she didn't.

Grumpy Monday

This is what I say to all those visitors yesterday who did not bring me any presents.

Sunday Shenanigans

Thankfully this is the last photo of that batch that mum took with the weird exposure settings.

Mind you, I think this is a cool photo of me. My white whisker really stands out!

Extra special super dooper announcement

Dearest pups and kitties, I have a very special announcement to make. I'm sure you have all read my interviews in the past with the lovely Gerri, who makes Happy Hearts cookies. Click here, here and here if you want to check out the interviews again, or if you haven't seen them before.

But the most exciting thing is this: Gerri has made some new cookies, and they are called the Huffle Cookie! That's right, they're named after me! They are shaped like a cat (like me!) and are very very tasty. You should all check out the website and get your people to order you your very own Huffle cookies!

Friday, November 27, 2009

Finally Friday

It's Friday and a nice day here, everypup and everykitty. Mum and dad have got some people coming over to visit on Sunday so I hope they remember to bring me a present!


I hope you all have a great weekend!

Thursday, November 26, 2009


This is me hiding behind the big pot that holds the lime tree.


Really, I'm just waiting for one of those evil birds to make a move so I can grab it.


I can be very patient.

Toes on Tuesday

The other day when it wasn't raining I was hanging out on the deck and enjoying some sunshine on my furs. I decided I could lean against the bench seat except I was a bit closer than I thought, and I ended up like this.


So now you all get to see my back paws.

Monday Close Up

Today I thought I would be nice and let the pupparazzi take a close up photo of me.


There's no point fighting it, they just follow me around anyway. At least this way I get to have a nap sooner rather than later.

Performance Review

It's time for my mum's annual performance review.

Performance Review

Quantity of output: mum does help me post daily, except when she and dad leave me alone and go on holidays. I give her three paws for being mostly good about this.

Quality of output: aside from bothering me with the flashy beast on an all too regular basis, I think she does okay with what goes on my blog. Although sometimes it takes a while to post awards and tags. Two paws.

Client Pawticipation: I have my very own email address so four paws up for this one

Pawticipation II: I hardly ever participate in competitions and contests because someone always forgets. One paw for this.

Client Satisfaction: I usually get over 30 comments per post so I hope that means my friends are happy with our efforts. Three paws.

Overall Rating: I give mum three paws up for helping me blog. We've been at this a while and we usually post every single day so that's a lot of work for us. Really, she could improve by giving me more ham and roast chicken. Something to aim for next year!

Useful tools in the garden

Hey, has anyone noticed this wall here before?

I think it could be a useful tool!

Oh yeah, that's the ticket! A perfect chin scratching post.

I'll have to remember this.

Thursday on the balcony

This is a slightly old photo, as you can see from the green edge of the photo.

Huffle Balcony 14

Those are weeds, by the way.

Also, dad is not doing a good job of keeping my balcony clean! Those tiles are meant to be yellow!

Tuesday, November 17, 2009


Those evil birds are at it again. But I have devised a new plan.


I am going to sit here under these bushes where they can't see me, and when they come and sit in front of me I will jump on them!

I'll be under here if anycat or anypup is looking for me.
