Presents

A visitor gave the mrbumpycat.com animals presents.

The cats got treats.  Mr Bumpy wasn't hungry so he walked away.


Princess absolutely loved the wrapping paper!


And Fanta loved her new soft toy.



She absolutely loved it to death.



We need crime scene clean-up here!

Mischief Managed

Princess, rag doll kitten, looking at Christmas tree.


The humans have been shutting me out of this room.

I ask you, why would anyone tell someone as cute as me, that I can't do whatever I like?

Princess looking at Christmas tree

This is a really interesting thing.

Princess, looking at Christmas tree
It seems to be full of shiny cat toys.
Princess, trying to climb Christmas tree
I wonder if I can just get this one...  Uh oh!   Mum! I wasn't doing anything.  Not supposed to be here? Oh, I forgot.  OK, I'll go back to the other room.

The Wind in Her Hair

Princess, on the dining table, where no cat should be.
Hello.

Um, yes, you have caught me on the dining table.

Yes, I know cats are not supposed to be on the dining table.

But it's December and in Queensland December is very very hot!

And I have a very thick fur coat.

You see that big box thing on the wall?  Mum and Mr D call that the air conditioner.

I don't know if air needs conditioning, but when I'm up on that table, I'm close enough that the big box blows cool air through my hair!

Because I like the cool air in my hair I get up on the table, even though I shouldn't.  Please don't tell anyone you caught me here.

Princess purrs.

Hive Mind

Mum says Fanta and Princess share a brain cell.



Mr D says they have a hive mind.



Fanta and Princess have no idea what the humans mean.

We're Inspiring Animals

Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,

We haven't posted for a while, but we've been busy.

The mrbumpycat.com animals have all been very inspiring.  So much so, that Mum's recently published a book of poetry inspired by us!  It's called "Poetic Pets".

If you remember the Poem About Princess that was in the blog a while back,  that's in the book, but there's also poems about Fanta, and more importantly, me.

She's also released a new novel and a new children's book.  Here are the details:


Of course, the only one you are interested in will be "Poetic "Pets".  I don't even know why Mum bothered with the other ones.

Mum says I have to tell you that all the books are available now from www.lulu.com/spotlight/IrisCarden and will soon be available from most online bookshops.

Until next time we meet in the Bloggosphere,
I remain,

Mr Bumpy,
Very inspirational Bloggercat,
Supreme Feline Overlord.

A Poem about Princess

Kitten


Collar bell jingles, soft paws pat her ball,
the kitten is playing her way down the hall.

She wiggles her bum as she targets a pounce,
knocks things off the shelf to see if they bounce.

She leaps into a lap for a moment or two,
but can’t stay there when there’s so much to do.

The world is all new, there’s so much to explore,
for this little kitten there’s adventures galore!

She scampers and climbs, she runs then she stays,
Life is a game, won’t you please come and play?

Then all of a sudden, she comes to a stop,
She gives a small yawn, and she falls with a flop.

And then with a deep self-satisfied purr
she forms a tight ball of warm snuggly fur.

She twitches a whisker and breathes long and deep

the sweet gentle snore of an innocent sleep.

Life is Good Again

Hello.
OK, Fanta may be asleep with
her head buried in Mum's dressing-gown
but trust me, she's very glad to cuddle with me. - Princess
Guess what?

My stitches are out! The cone is gone!  I've had a good all-over lick and the humans can scratch under my chin and behind my ears again.

Best of all, I'm free of the bathroom and allowed to be with my Fanta again!

I'm glad all the bad stuff is over.  Life is good again.

Princess Purrs.
