Cat

I went out and sprayed the weeds tonight. As I got near the back gate I thought I saw something quite big. I looked again and discovered it was a pair of whiskers and a cat's nose. There's a friendly cat who lives over the road* and he was at my back gate, lying down looking under it and watching me. He didn't come in, just rolled around and watched.

Once I'd finished I went in and washed my hands (the kitchen's at the front of the house). When I returned I found the cat at my open back door. I'm sure he comes in my garden when I'm not looking, but in this case I didn't really want him near the weedkiller. But I didn't even have to say anything - he saw me and walked down the garden and under the gate. I followed him to stroke him and he's still there - sat at my back gate, but looking out. I can hear some activity out there, so he's probably watching that.

If only he could talk and we could train him to bite criminals, he'd make a fantastic neighbourhood watch all on his own.

*I know where he lives because in the winter I often see him in the upstairs front window, watching the world

Plus it's been ages since I posted any photos of my parent's cat.

I have been meaning to post all week, but I've just been so tired. Work was busy and I keep getting woken up by the heating coming on. Which is bad enough usually, but was worse on Friday when I got up extra early to collect for Children in Need at 8am. I would have caught up on my sleep this weekend, if I hadn't been waking up early for no reason.

But I do have a meme from [info]selenay936:

Comment to this post, and I will list five things I associate with you. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your blog/LJ/DW (or just add a reply back to me). Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

Very excitingly today, I found out we got loads of Paralympic tickets. We were allowed to put in for ten session, so we went for all of the swimming at the weekends (six in total), all of the wheelchair tennis at the weekends (three in total) and then a wheelchair fencing. We got but one of the wheelchair tennis! So we're going to be going to the Olympic Park in September next year and seeing quite a lot of swimming. Which is good because we're not going to anything at the Olympic Park for the Olympics and not seeing any swimming.

One of my neighbours across the way has a black and white cat. After the first time it saw me it's been really friendly and bashing its head against my hand, wanting to be stroked. Today, when I got home I found it sitting outside my back door. Which wasn't that much of a surprise because there's quite a big gap under the back fence. But then it meowed to be let in! So I let it in and it wandered around my lounge and purred when I stroked it. When I decided I really ought to put the dinner and opened the back door it happily went out. It was a very good cat.
