Getting Colder

Camouflage? No. Just a cold dog in a furry blankey.
The furry blankeys are very popular at the moment.

Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,

It's late autumn here in Brisbane, and in the NTBTS household, things are cooling down quite a bit.

The furry blankeys on the lounge chairs are suddenly very popular with both humans and animals!

Mum asked when Mr Woof planned to come out from under the one he claimed - and it seems that it will be around half-past spring. In his favour, he is willing to have humans sit with him and share the blankey, as long as they scratch him while they do it.

He objects to me sitting beside him, sharing the blankey and scratching him. I am certain I scratch far more effectively than the humans do, but for reasons I can't comprehend, Mr Woof prefers to have them scratch him.

I must confess that I did leave the other furry blankey for a while last night - only because it was warmer in Mum's bed.

I find I'm feeling very cuddly at the moment.  The humans, however, aren't keen to cuddle me, as I'm in the process of changing from my summer coat into my winter one, and I leave bits of my summer coat all over them.

They have such a limited supply of hair of their own, confined mostly to their heads, that one would think they would appreciate a little extra hair to help them keep warm. They do not. This is one of the many strange, illogical, things about humans, that I fail to understand. They will put on extra coats - but do not appreciate the coat I am willing to share with them.

The curious habits of humans do fascinate me! They are very entertaining creatures in their own way, although, as I have said, completely irrational.

Well, that's life in the NTBTS household at the moment. I hope wherever you are, you are staying warm.

Until next time we meet in the bloggosphere,
I remain,
Mr Bumpy,

  1. I totally agree with you, Mr Bumpy ! Humans work hard to depilate themselves, complain after doing it that they are cold... and refuse our extra-hair help.
