Archie's Diary - with apologies to non-cat-people

Hello again, just to let you know what I've been up to this week.

I'm happy in my house but don't have much sense. I hurt my arm dashing around hauling myself up on things and had to have a day resting. The sofas have all had to be covered up with old sheets to stop me scrabbling and scratching them as I do love to climb.

I've met another small black kitten who lives in the cooker and looks just like me. The first time I met him I went all bushy and ran away sideways, but now I try and play with him.

I'm ever so clever with my mum's laptop, I do like sitting on it when she's not looking and while she was cooking I managed to sit on the function keys and printed out 14 pages of html code for her blog - without anybody knowing until they went to look at the printer. My mum didn't even know how to do this.

I like to be cuddled ALL day, except when I'm playing or climbing on the keyboard. I'm in the process of adding a decorative border of perforations along the edge of the music books, it may take me a while.

My mum is very odd. I keep looking into her eyes and stroking her face with a gentle paw, but instead of making her happy she just seems to get all over-protective and worry about me even more, because she says I'm SO nice and gentle and affectionate. Some people are never satisfied - personally I think she's really lost her marbles, but she says it's because she's only really just lost Newton and the thought of losing me comes into her head and she needs a bit of time and a bit more sunshine (and less hormones whatever they are) to get a proper perspective back. My dad thinks she's lost a few marbles too.


  1. Oh, this is such a lovely post!!!
    You should keep doing this- Archie's wonderful!

    :) Reminds me of the time that I had 4 little kitties around, playing with everything they found on their way!
    sorry to repeat, but it's truly a lovely post!

    Hugs, and hope you had a nice weekend!

  2. Love the new kitten. I hope he has helped to relieve some of the pain since the loss of your beloved Newton.

  3. When I started reading this, I thought it was you narrating and couldn't figure out why you were scrambling over your sofa?! Barnaby found an interesting slideshow on you tube when he typed in 'stupid cats' (sorry Archie) which is hilarious - it might give Archie a few tips x

  4. He certainly is very cute and it is good to have a new life to care for - of course Newton is still much missed and I keep half-expecting him to appear outside my window, but Archie is giving us so many cuddles he is helping us move on. As I type he has climbed onto my lap and is chewing my pendant necklace!

  5. I really love your little Archie. They are just so entertaining aren't they? I would really love one but I think our 3 cairn terriers would have other ideas :-)
    I just wanted to update you about the embellished pic I did using the artist's canvas like you suggested......It went in the shop yesterday and I've sold it :-) :-)
    Thank you so much for the suggestion. I will be making more now so watch this space :-)

  6. Archie is coming along nicely isn't he!

    Thank you so much for your encouraging comment earlier today. You have really boosted my conficence xJ

  7. Hello to you all! I've just found this blog via someone's elses...Don't ask me whose, I follow so many now. LOL.

    Archie, you are absolutely precious and obviously very clever. I understand purrfectly your mom's fears about losing you--I lost my beloved Chumley three years ago and sometimes it still hurts and I do still panic when I think something is wrong with one of my three current fur babies.

    I LOVE your mom's floral photographs and her felting. She's very creative; you will have to tell her so. I'm a camera-addict myself, though definitely not a professional, or really even an amateur! It's just one of my Joys and definitely my mental therapy.

  8. I bet you could find her marbles for her!
