The face of innocence!

This is the face that greeted me when I walked into the front room earlier

and this is what was on the floor next to him.......

A very chewed up tealight!!!

I've had two tealights on one of my side tables for weeks with no problem and then I caught him eyeing them up this morning and warned him away but when my back was turned this afternoon he just couldn't resist!  I will so look forward to waxy poos over the next couple of days!!!  He once ate a WHOLE bag of sugar that he dragged out of a kitchen cupboard, and his poo's ended up looking like green jelly!!!!!!

So the snow is hanging about and I am not enjoying it one little bit!  I have been lighting my fire for coming up to 3 months now and am just about sick of it (oh how I long for central heating!!!), Marley loves it though....

I don't think the cats are enjoying it either, they are spending a lot of time indoors snuggled up somewhere warm and I feel so heartless when I have to turf Maisie out of a night, but if I don't (which I didn't the other night) what greets me in the morning is deposits of poo and vomit NICE!!!  Poppy and Dotty seem to be very toilet trained but then they are only 1 and 3 I suppose and Maisie is a granny at the ripe of age of 17 if only they sold incontinence knickers for cats!!!

Poppy curled up on the sofa next to the fire

Poppy coming to see me in bed last night!

The other thing Maisie does if you let her stay in overnight, is that she insists on sleeping on my pillow right next to my head!  I have on many occasions woken up to her looking at me nose to nose breathing in my breath, it is seriously a very frightening experience!!!

So onwards we go in the horrible weather!  I have been trying to cheer myself up with the thought that by the time the snow goes we will be in February which is nearly March and April and we can hopefully start looking forward to some warmer weather....well we can hope!  

I think I will leave you with a nice summery photo to warm your cockles!!!

How lovely to see a bit of green!!


The REAL Marley and Me xx


  1. Oh Marley….!

    Our cat (who, by the way, is the spitting image of your Dotty…if slightly scragglier around the edges) woke up one day at the ripe age of 11 and decided that actually, she didn't want to go outdoors anymore. Problem was she was a farm cat. The farmer decided that there must be something very wrong with her and was going to have her "put to sleep", so we ended up with her. …..a cat who only has to be near an open door to freak out. …and you know what….I HATE litter trays with a fiery passion!

    I've decided that I agree with you about the weather…..I've had enough of the snow (and slipping onto my bottom every time I venture out!) Roll on Spring!

    1. Hi Ali, I.m going to do a post about my cats soon I think, they are weird in their own wonderful ways!!! Don't talk to me about litter trays! I can't abide them and can no longer have them indoors because it makes a tasty meal for Marley! Luckily Poppy and Dotty (Mum and daughter) are very clean and house trained but Maisie is terrible!!!

      Apparently we are in for the big thaw on Sunday - hooray!!

  2. When they look at you with those eyes,you can forgive them anything!
    I LOVE your cottage by the way.
    Can't wait for Spring.Let's hope that's the end of the snow now.
