It is a very big day in Huffle Mawson land.  Today I am Ten years old!

Please help me celebrate being ten.  It is a very good age, I think.  My best friend Zimmie turned 10 earlier this year and he said it was pretty good.  Also: today is my 5th gotcha day with mum and dad!  Yep, it's five years since they convinced me to come and live with them.

They do pretty good, for adopted parents.

Merry Christmas!

I would like to wish all of my wonderful friends a very happy Christmas!  Spare a thought for all the pups and kitties who don't have a wonderful home like we all do; maybe you can get a new brother or sister after the new year!  I hope you all get some great presents too, like some ham or chicken.

As you can tell, there was no way I was posing for mum in a santa hat so she had to use the magic of photoshop for my card this year.

Please come back on December 28 and help me celebrate my birthday; it's a big number this year!

Thursday on the balcony

I have not been out on the balcony for more than two weeks because it rained a lot in the week before mum and dad went away and then they were gone for 12 days.  Finally I am allowed out there again and I will have to look closely at the neighbours to see what has changed in my absence.

I'll report back later.

Tuesday Telling

So mum and dad have been home for four whole days now and I have still not seen a single present for Huffle.  Also: mum wrapped all the Christmas presents on the weekend and I did not see a single thing with my name on it.  Do you think I have been a very bad kitty this year and I'm not getting any presents?

Sunday Awards

Casper, Ben, Archie and Jimmy gave me an award while I was on holidays last week!  It's the One Lovely Blog Award.


Thanks kitties! The rules say I am supposed to share this with three more bloggers whom I admire. So I am going to share this with:

Scarlett and Melly: two kitties who are positively gorgeous!  If you don't know them, drop in and say hi.

Freya and Teego: because Freya has to have a tooth out soon!

Suey, Fui and Ronny: their mum does cat fostering and they always welcome new kitties into the house.

They're home! I'm ignoring them.

Huffle 215

Mum and dad arrived home this morning, and I am very happy to have them back.

But I'm giving them the back of disrespect for leaving me alone again. This is not good enough.

There better be presents for Huffle. Just saying.

Alone again... naturally

Mum and dad left on their holiday this morning.  My grandma and grandpa are coming to look after me, so I hopefully won't die of starvation or anything.  Actually grandma is pretty good about giving me ham so that's good.

I hope nothing exciting happens while I'm being abandoned; I won't be able to visit for a couple of weeks.

Huffle the Mighty Hunter

The other day, I was sitting in my Huffle bed when I heard some buzzing. Of course I had to investigate immediately. It was coming from behind the couch.

It was an enormous dragonfly!

Dragonfly 02
(sorry about the dodgy photo - it was quite dark and mum's flash appears to have broken)

Well, it took me about five hours and two naps and a break for dinner, but I finally caught it! I chased it around for ages and played and whapped and generally had a great time:

Dragonfly 01

And then it went deaded and because I had eaten my dinner so recently and then got all over excited chasing the dragonfly, I vomited.

What a great day.

I am doing my best impression of a jungle panther here.  Can you see me?  I am in the back garden, waiting patiently for those annoying birds.

Huffle 03

If you look carefully you can see me more clearly here.  Actually from here I can reach a lot of those pesky bugs too.

Smelly Saturday

I was outside minding my own business when this flower jumped out and attacked me.  I gave it a good sniff before deploying the smacky paw of doom and whapping it clear into next week.

Huffle 602

I don't think it will mess with me again.

Thursday on the balcony

We had four spiders in the house last week so mum refused to open the door to my balcony for me, she says they come in the house from out there.

Huffle 321

I say it's not fair and I should be allowed out on my balcony any time I please.  What if the neighbours miss me?  What if the kids are playing soccer and I have to referee?  What if something happens and I don't get to see it?

No, this is not acceptable.  LET ME OUT!

Um, no, I wasn't planning on eating that plant.

Why on earth would you think that?

I'm just checking for bugs.

Huffle 612

Sometimes, I like to go to this corner of the deck and look for the kitten that was stuck in that gap a while back.  But the kitten isn't there any more; I wonder if it got adopted to a nice family.

If you haven't been reading my blog for a long time, you might want to go and check out the story here.

Finally Friday

I have just found out that in two weeks' time, my mum and dad are going away on holiday AGAIN and I am being abandoned AGAIN.

Huffle 611

How could they desert me? If you would like to apply to be my new family, please email me your credentials, including your feelings about ham.

Monday Musings

It rained so much over the weekend that mum and dad considered building an ark!  Also, we had thunderstorms on Saturday night which I do NOT like.  I had to hide in my safe place, where the thunderstorms can't get me.

Huffle 09

So today I am resting up and trying to find a nice patch of sunlight to take a nap it. Everything outside is very soggy so I won't be spending any time in the back yard for a day or two!

Saturday Chatter

Huffle 22

Some of you mentioned a little while back that you would like to know what sort of new flashy beast is tormenting me. Here it is:
Nikon D300S

A Nikon D300S, and she has FIVE lenses for it, one of which is just as big as I am!

I think I'm starting to get a headache just thinking about this flashy beast.

Today at 11am, we pause to remember those we have lost in the battle of war, from World War 1, all the way to the war in Afghanistan now.

What mum? Uh, nope, I wasn't doing anything.

Finally Friday

Mum was out taking photos of me in the garden the other day.  She said I was being difficult and could I please move, but I didn't want to.

This is where I was sitting:
Huffle 20

And that is why the left side of this photo is a bit blown out.  I was in the shade and because I am black, mum needs to reduce the shutter speed to let enough light in to take my photo.  Which means the sunny bits are blindingly bright.

If your eyes have glazed over, I'm sorry, the pupparazzi made me say it.

Actually no, I don't think I will look at the camera.  There's something more interesting over there.

And there's something good down here too.

Emergency post

Could every cat and dog and goat and hamster please go and visit my friend Pablo?  He has just been admitted to the emergency room with an urethra blockage and his family are very worried about him.

Scary Saturday

There is no picture today because I am hiding.  The pupparazzi bought a new flashy beast - it's enormous - and I don't like it one bit.

Not only that, but the pupparazzi (mum) gave her old camera to the pupparazzi-in-training (dad) and now there are TWO of them chasing me around.

I might need to run away.

Thursday on the balcony

Huffle 1001

It's been a while since Ive been out on the balcony, because of all the bad weather we've had. I snuck out the other day though, when we had a bit of sunshine. 

I'm pretty sure the neighbours missed me.

I wasn't really eating the plants. Honestly. I'm just calling the bugs and telling them to get in my mouth!

Well, the nice weather came and went again. On Wednesday it was warm and sunny and now we are back to cold weather again. Everyone in my family is a bit sick of it. So today I am going to find myself a nice warm sunspot - if I can - and take some quality naps.

Wordless Wednesday

Today is also my cousin's birthday.  He is in the Navy and currently deployed to the Gulf.  Happy birthday Adrian!

We had some crazy weather here over the weekend.  It was pouring with rain and freezing cold and there was even snow on the nearby hills!  What happened to Spring?

Springy Saturday

Now that we have had loads of rain and some days of sunshine, the garden is going crazy!

Huffle 04

I think late spring is a very good time of the year, except for all the storms. I do not like storms (not you, Stormy!).  But I love to play in the garden and chase bugs.  You know there are LOTS of bugs in here.

Thinking on Thursday

Huffle 05

Today I am wondering if dad is ever going to finish stripping the deck.  I have heard mum say that when it is finished, she is going to be buy me a nice chair with cushions to sit on so I can be comfortable when I am outside on the deck.  The sooner the better, I say.

No, I was not digging in the lemon tree pot. I was looking for more caterpillars.

Sunning on Sunday

Huffle 417

FINALLY summer is on the way and I am getting some good sunshines here. I have spent most of the weekend out on the deck, and I plan to do that a whole lot more today.

Mum found some caterpillars eating her lemon tree the other day so she knocked them on to the ground and I had a good time playing with them.  But when I came back out this morning they were gone.  Does anyone know where they went?

Finally Friday

Huffle 07 

It has been a long week here, we even had thunderstorms on Wednesday night.  I do not like thunderstorms at all.  Luckily dad was there to keep me safe.  We are expecting nice weather this weekend so I plan to spend some time out on my deck.

Come on over if you want.
