Best not to frighten the builders.



Jackie: Hi Pixie. Was just checking my emails before the builders come.
Pixie: They're not coming again are they? They have made a lovely hole in the ceiling. What else is there for them to do? They are so noisy.
Jackie: They are going to be here for a while, sweet ginger.
Pixie: Oh.



Jackie: Anyway, sweet thing, how are you feeling?
Pixie: Good, thank you, but all the dust makes me sneeze. Will they be here for more than a week?
Jackie: For a few moons. But at the end of their time here there will be a new fire, and a new mantle shelf for cats to sit upon, and a new game for cats to play called ' climb on the roof and in through the windows, when She's not looking, creep into Her studio and hide'.
Pixie: Sounds good. And will there be mice?
Jackie: Shush now, here they come again. Don't want them to think we are talking about them and best not to let on that you can speak either. Might frighten them.
Pixie: Nadolig was here earlier. Go and see if Mr G is ok.

Hi Pixie - are you feeling better? Ooh, what a lot of exciting things happening at your house! What kind of new fire are you getting? A woodburner would be nice and cosy for you to snuggle next to!

A good day to you Ms. Pixie ^..^
So happy that you are feeling better. A new mantle for you to sit on sounds quite nice to me. One can't have too many mantles.
Take care sweet one ^..^

Lovely conversation between you and Pixie. I'm so glad she's feeling better. Did you take Pixie's advice and go and check on Mr Griffiths?

Griffin said...

Such a lovely cat and such a charming conversation too! Keep safe and well Pixie-cat.

This has got to be one of my favorite posts! Wishing I had a Pixie-Cat to snuggle with too!

Have been thinking about Mr Griffiths and hoping he is getting on well - please let us know!

Cheers!

Oh bless her little heart, Jackie! So glad she's feeling better. We've just had kitchen re-fitted and alterations to lounge - Monty, Winnie, Clover & Kitten coped pretty well. Although we did resort to weeing on a few "new" things in order to make them more homely! Maggie x

I'm new to your blog and I absolutely love it! Having two Ginger cats of my own this is by far the most amusing. I wish they could read...

We like the sound of the new game! And Dinah says we must ask about Mr. G.

So glad to have found you here. I am about to read a book set in Wales.

Cats are wonderfully conversational and companionable. Not everyone knows that--its sort of a secret between cat lovers. Pixie's paw is so lovely stretched out and gripping your sleeve.

it has been so mild here today that we have had all the windows open, so a hole in the ceiling sounds lovely to us too. but just for spring.

Ah, cats and builders! Builders usually start working just where a cat needs to curl up. Very tiresome!
Love the pics of long suffering Rosie too!
