Deer Santa Claws

Deer Santa Claws

Hello my name is Oliver I am very pleased to meet yoo.

When yoo come down the chimney can yoo please make sure yoo come down the right one: three chimneys have been blocked by chimney balloons so yoo won’t be able to get in. Do yoo know the chimney in the speshull red room where my favourite chair is?  That is the one to come down. Anyway, I think yoo have been coming to this howse since 1880 so yoo should know what you’re doing. We can leave yoo sammin, choona or cat crunchies to have a snack on, whichever yoo prefer. Scott asks that yoor reindeer be careful on the slate roof.

Anyway here is our Christmouse list. By the way, Scott and Mark say that I have been the best behaved of the three of us – my two sisfurs are sometimes NORTY (espeshully Ruby). Ruby spends too much time balancing on the banister, shutting herself in rooms, walking on the kitchen bench and playing wif the coffee machine. Rose copies Ruby and steals handkerchiefs and scarves and rummages in female guests handbags. I have spent all year bringing mouseys and being a good boy and a patient bruvfur to my sisfurs.

Please may I have a noo toy mousey. I would also like evfurrybody in the world to be happy like me.  Give them lots of tummy rubs and time to be upside down.

Ruby would like a book called What Bird is That?, a slingshot and a chemistry set. She has already read enough early feminist material so yoo don’t need to give her any more Simone de Beauvoir. She says she’s now into second-wave feminism and would like to read some Kate Millett, Betty Friedan and Shulamith Firestone.

Rose would like a noo hairbrush and a manicure and pedicure. She also wants crinkle balls and pom pom balls to play wif as those are her favourites. And jewellery, preferably diamonds.

Anyway, we hope yoo don’t get too stressed owt wif all yoor travels. Merry Christmouse to yoo!

Lots of love from

Happy Gotcha Day to us!

Hi evfurrybody it’s Oliver here! Guess what? Today my sisfur Ruby and I celebrate our Gotcha Day!

That’s right! A year ago today we arrived for the furst time at our noo furrever home! That’s me taking the furst step owt of the cat carrier. It wasn’t long afterwards that I went and hid under the sideboard for the night ‘cos I was a bit skerred.

Look at how tiny I was back then!


And here’s a never-before-seen pic of Ruby!

And here’s some almost sinkronised yawning.

As kittens we needed our byooty sleep. Not much has changed! Tee hee!

Our Award

Hi everyone it’s Ruby here!

We want to thank Clooney for our Liebster Blog Award! We are very honoured. Just after Clooney gave us the award we also got it from the Poupounette gang! Wow! Thanks!

“Liebster” means dear, dearest, favorite or beloved in German.  The requirements of receiving the award are to link back to who gave it to you, paste the Award on your blog, then choose 5 of your favorite blogs to pass the award on to that are up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers, let them know by leaving a comment on their blog and hope that the 5 blogs chosen will keep on spreading the love by passing the award on to 5 more blogs.

Well, we don’t have a Blogger blog so it’s hard to judge who has less than 200 followers, so we will choose some of our favourite friends (there really are too many of you!):

Huffle Mawson and Teddy: Huffle is being very patient with my boyfriend Teddy, who is a bit of a rebel (::sigh::). They are from Melbourne Australia, where Scott and Mark used to live.

The Poupounette Gang: Even though they gave us the award afterwards, we wanted to give it to them too! They are all great – there’s the Abyssinian cats Bibi, Tama, Sei and Genji, a dog called Tom and Vidock the horse! Of course, Genji is Rose’s beau.

Sparkle the Designer Cat: Award winning author, supermodel and cat. Also a prolific commenter! Thanks Sparkle!

Milo and Alfie: Our good furriends who inspired us to get our own blog.

Mr Puddy: Who makes us laugh the most!

There are so many others we love as well, so we hope everyone realises how dear you all are to us!

Now I need to get back to some important work.

There are little birds down there eating seed from the bird feeder, so I need to keep an eye on them. I think it’s a bit too cold for them to have a bath though – that water’s almost frozen! Can you see that we have just had our first snow of the season?

Miss Rose Reports

Well hello there! This is Miss Rose!

You know, I think my brother and sister have had too much blog-time recently. Yes, they have had some teeth out – but let’s not forget that I had a complete hystero-oophorectomy six weeks ago! Jeesh!

In addition, I’m pretty!

I’m mean I’m really, really, pretty.

Anyway, here is the beautiful Christmas scene in the living room. Take my advice: don’t eat needles from a Nordman Fir tree. Dis-gust-ing.

The tree looks very nice though. It freaked Ruby out – ha! Did you know that this is my first Christmas ever? Oliver and Ruby were here last Christmas but they never saw the tree – they were tiny kittens back then and they were living in the kitchen until they got used to being here.

Here are our Christmas stockings hanging on the mantelpiece! I hope I get a crinkle ball!

Ruby wants the complete works of Simone de Beauvoir.

Oliver wants world peace, or a new mousey. Perhaps both but he doesn’t want to appear greedy.

Here’s another pic of me.

And this is my standard 8×10 glossy. I can autograph this one for a small fee…

The Interloper

Hi everyone it’s Ruby here!

I need to tell you about a strange interloper in our midst…

I know: it’s a tree – but it’s inside! Has the world turned upside down? I know that things have been a bit topsy-turvy lately – did you know that there are little balls of ice falling outside? Plus some of them are coming down the chimneys and landing in the fireplaces and making pinging noises as they land – one even hit Oliver on the head! But this is too much – where will it all end?

I had to give it the paw-whap just to make sure I wasn’t seeing things! The branches are a bit sticky – ewww!

Rose took it a step further and swallowed one of the needles – she says it was pointy and not very tasty.

I think I’ll just keep an eye on it from here.

Oliver of course was too busy snoozing upstairs to even notice the tree until this evening – and even then he didn’t seem to mind it being here.

He was far more interested in the angel on the mantelpiece.

As for me – I want to know what’s inside this box!
