You want me to do what???

Looking at her antics today there are times when I think our Kiera has an attitude problem. Here’s what happened.

As you can see below wet and wild was what we woke to this morning.  Now we shouldn’t grumble because the weather man did tell us more was coming but there are times when, well, there are times when he doesn’t quite get it right.  Hence the surprise when he does lol

After breakfast I looked out over the back garden and it didn’t seem to be too bad.  The sun had broken through but the rain was still coming down.

I must explain to you that those two pens you can see there are from when I used to breed Burmese kittens – as they were house raised once they were running around I needed safe places for them to spend time outside  So some days I’d pop a litter in them along with their ‘mum’ to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine then bring them back indoors later in the day.

We now use one as a ‘shed’ and Kiera (as well as in the past previous feline friends now departed) has the use of one further down the garden  If I’m going out, rather than leave her indoors all the time or trust whe doesn’t wander from the deck whilst I’m away, pop her in there and I know she’s safe. A room with a view full of home comforts, several comfy beds plus a big box bed for if it’s windy, litter tray food water and even power (for electric blankets) so she really can’t grumble can she?!

Would you like to see our little madam’s reaction to the suggestion she spend a little time outside.  Now I’m not a mind reader but this looks to me like she’s saying:-

You want me to do what?  You want me to go where?

Thank you very much for asking but I’d rather stay here!

Now clear off while I get some shut eye 🙂

It’s nearly lunchtime and the rain continues to fall.  In an on again – off again pattern.  Blue skies for a while then dark ones for a while.  What will be will be seems the order of the day I suppose 🙂

How’s your Saturday going?

  1. It was beautifully sunny at 7.30 this morning here, but boy has it deteriorated since then. I cannot remember sustained awful weather in spring ever.

  2. Comfort loving beasties aren’t they? Ours go out for a short time each morning. When I open up the back door for them if it is raining they immediately run to the front door. When I open that door for them and it is STILL raining, they give me a look very like the one madam gave you.

  3. Oh my. She didn’t like that suggestion at all did she lol
    I had to wait for a break in the rain to clean the kitty litter and get some kindling to light the fire. We had let it go out after those sunny days. The wood was so wet I had to use the hair dryer to help get them started!
    I’m with Kiera. I’m staying inside close to the fire!

  4. Today was rain-free for us in Adelaide, thank goodness but still chilly. I hope we all get some lovely Spring weather before the heat waves hit. 🙂

  5. I get the same reaction from Angel when he is comfy on my bed with the heater going, but when he’s ready to go out, I’d better jump up and open the door right away. Even when it’s raining or freezing cold, he doesn’t care. He wants out and that’s all there is to it.

  6. My cats have an entire barn for their recreation but oh how they beg to come inside. It isn’t going to happen because the dogs are not inclined to share. Kiera is living the “Life Of Riley”. Are you familiar with that phrase?

  7. not raining across the ditch, but it’s not exactly waking to hot weather – and this arvo which is Labour Day (Monday) there was a stiff/cold breeze down at the bus station…
