A Homecoming Gift



Poor old Humphrey is a bit up tipped at the moment. Being a black cat he's not overly fond of the heat anyway and with the arrival of TYM home late Sunday afternoon, all the bags and cases make him decidedly twitchy. Normally we ship him off before we pack as he heads for the hills otherwise the minute he sees luggage...to him it can only mean one thing. The Box of Doom where cruel owners take their helpless pets to the cattery or worse still the VET.

Both the feline and TYM keep similar hours...sleep in later and stay up later so the two of them often cross paths in the early hours when we are dead to the world. Last night TYM headed off out to catch up with some mates over a couple of sherbets. As is oft the case he fell asleep on the sofa downstairs until the small hours and awoke to find a special cat gift for him from H. Evidently he'd gone to a lot of trouble with his choice, but TYM didn't appreciate his efforts. It may have been unique, but TYM was not thrilled to find a dead mouse in his shoe. I laughed like a drain when he told me and even he saw the funny side when I pointed out that poor old Humph could hardly be expected to buy him an ASOS voucher now could he!

    1. Yes I'm led to believe it's a present. Maybe not quite my favourite but he's such a dear I can't be cross with him!

  3. Chortle!
    We had a similar shrew in a shoe moment this morning when himself stumbled bleary eyed out of bed and had to double check the 'thing in the shoe' and on finding his specs found a small and perfectly formed shrew which seems to have expired at the hand (paw) of one of the cats... not a happy himself

  4. You can imagine how careful we have to be getting the 'box of doom' out in this house just lately. We have to get her in the kitchen and then craftily get the box out and try to surprise her. lol
