Monster on Ice

Monster loves the snow.  It’s his thing and it’s finally here (but just about gone now, as I type this).

He has spent many hours outside and the Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak (patent pending) almost works.  Cat?  What cat?

Here he is channelling his “inner Gemma” and if you don’t know who I mean, I suggest you do a quick internet search of “Gemma, Dancing on Ice” and you will get the joke.  In this house we are strangely addicted to DOI at the moment.  It has a wierd car crash appeal.

Anyway, our star is not available for comment.

The rustle of a crisp packet usually does the trick, though never prawn cocktail flavour (so you know).  These days they hunt in pairs.  Both of these beggars can hear one being opened from another room and have tummy-clocks you could set your watch to.

    I so adore your gentle, cute, funny, beautiful animals, videos and landscapes – what a cat. I really think these should all be collected up into a book /e-book/video. All the best

    Can we see film of Monster’s best Ice moves? As for the crisp packet – in my house if the fridge door opens, Mr.Man shows up demanding “dairy product”. No mater what you pull out, it MUST be dairy product and he MUST be starving.

    I’ve never been around a cat who liked snow, though years and years ago (before my time), Harry and his first wife had a cat named Frank (who does that to a cat). He was a little mentally challenged and whilst his Mum was a great runner in the snow, poor Frank just sank to the bottom. A pretty funny mental picture comes to mind. Monster, however, seems to actually enjoy himself!

    I can just see Her Maj and Monster cavorting about as a team, “hunting” for food! SK is right – a book is in the offing.

    Wonderful post! Monster and you were meant to be together. And, as I’ve mentioned before, I’m one of your “book” encouragers. Both your photos and charming stories are meant to be shared with a larger audience!

    My late husband was a terrible evening snacker. He could never get away with it though, the sound of that particular cabinet door opening sent both dogs shooting into the kitchen like rockets!

    With all those animal friends to keep entertained, I sometimes wonder how you find the time to blog.

    But we are all so very happy that you DO find the time 🙂

    Thank you
