My mum is so busy in the garden I don't know when she'll get around to posting again, so I thought I'd better get on with my own post.
I have so much to tell you. I'm nearly all grown up now. Now I have big springy legs I can jump up really high and get into cupboards (time for a wash while I'm in there):
I can also jump on top of every cupboard in the house so now no place is safe from my exploring - I am very good apart from when I spy a buzzy fly trying to get out of the window. Then I just forget about everything else and leap madly up and down at it over and over and over again, crashing down on whatever is under my paws at the time. My mum for some reason thinks it could be time to move her special things from the windowsills. When I catch the fly I eat it very noisily and my mum has to go away until I've finished because she doesn't like the crunching and the wings sticking out of my mouth.
I had quite a long trip to the vet when the vet put me to sleep and removed some things that I thought belonged to me - I was a bit wobbly for a while but I feel fine now.
My mum hasn't made much felt recently but I did help her pack some of it up in a box.
But my most exciting news in the whole world is that my dad said I had to go out on my own, so I have been doing lots of exploring outside my house. This makes my mum very worried but it makes me extremely happy.
I have a big, beautiful garden to explore and trees to climb and hedges to poke my nose through and dogs and neighbours to stare at. The dogs were a bit upset and growly and my mum says I have to stay away from them. She also said I have to stay away from the other neighbours as they don't like cats at all, but when they were out today I went through the hedge and sat on their patio table.
I can also help my mum with jobs - here I am helping her clean the outside table by walking through the very dirty wet splashy bits, then walking over the clean bits so I leave nice pawprints:
I also discovered my dad's kayak - it's high up on top of the wood pile under the carport so I'm sure it will make a good shelter. Perhaps I could surprise people by popping up out of one of the two holes:
I have been up on all the other high-up things like the garage roof and the pergola - I can see lots from up here, look how tall I am:
My main mission though is to chase flies and bees and leap all over the plants as I catch them, and to stalk the birds. I love finding feathers and they are my best treasure. I have to carry them in to show my mum and then take them outside to skip about with, then bring them in to show my mum again so she can admire how I have chewed them, then I take them out again.
After all that intrepid exploring I'm ready for a rest on my mum's new blanket - always better when someone is lying underneath it and I can curl up behind their legs:
