About Me

My photo
My name is Charlie (like you haven't worked that out!). I'm 12 years old and live in Sydney, Australia. I'm a Ragdoll puss cat and have a very laid back temperament when I'm with people I know. My favourite colour is green (grass is green and I like to eat it!), my favourite food is fish and I lurve cuddles of any description. I flop over when me Mudda says "flip flop" and I know what "breaky time" means! Breaky can be at any time of the day or night and can also occur multiple times a day! Yummo! My fur is soft as silk and I'm a bed hog! That's about it!

Sage Advice for 2014!

Hiya Efurryone,
 
As we head into celebrations for the New Year, I give you the following advice:
 
1. Avoid the V-E-T at all costs and if you must visit, make sure it's a good 'un!
 
2. Leave lots of your furs on everything, especially the sofa, the carpet,
your Mum's pillow and on any pair of black trousers you can find!
 
3.Worship sun puddles!
 
4. Expect and give lots of snuggles!
 
5. Make yourself at home on da table!
 
6. Most of all, be happy and healthy!
 
I give the paw to 2013!

Twenty thirteen, 
Full of events unforeseen,
That really did knock us flat.
We are worn out and weary,
And need something cheery
Happy twenty fourteen everycat!

I'm reaching forward to 2014
  
And grabbing it like it's a mousie!

Happy 2014 to all my furry and hoomin friends!

I am the centre of attention!


See? Proof!

Happy Christmas!

Happy, happy Christmas efurrybuddy!

 
Sniff sniff.  I smell my Christmas dinner but I cannot find it.
Oh boy, oh boy it smells good.  Looking, looking...........
 
It's up there!
 
Look!  Yummy prawns!  This will keep me busy for some time.
Mum says I have a very refined palate!
 
Happy Christmas.  Hope your day is happy and wonderful.
 
I'm off to fill my belly and then sleep a lot!

Wicked or What?

My Mum vacuumed today!  Something very rare indeed!
 
Guess I better get to work furring the carpet up again!
Is my work never done?  No rest for the wicked me!
 
Note to self: I must not burn a hole in Mum's hip pocket again!

Say it's not true!

I spied a great big ham in da fridge.........num nums!
Think I'll have a good wash in anticipation of what is yet to come!

Lick, lick, nice and clean...........

What?  I have to wait?  I just cannot believe my ears!
La la la la!  Not listening to you.
 
Guess I'll  just have to busy myself with eating some greens instead!

Watch This Space!

Hiya Furriends,
 
My mum had a birthday yesterday!
She says she has forgotten how many she's up to,
but I reckon she can't count that high!  MOL!
Look at what her furriend gave her!
It's a book all about how to draw ME!
 
Oh boy, oh boy!  I hope I can sit still long enough for her
to capture one of my cheeky expressions.
 
How about this one?
 
 You'll have to wait and see what she produces.
 
P.S: Don't hold your breath as I can't be responsible for how long it might take!

My Heroes......

Hiya Efurryone,
Firstly, thanks for the birthday wishes for yesterday.
I'm a big 12 year old, now!
 
Secondly, it's been a long time since I last posted, and here's some insight into why.
You may be aware that earlier in the year I was unwell wiv ear troubles.
Well..........that was just the beginning of my woes!
 
Since I last saw you, I have been spending up big on Mum's credit card!
I've been seeing some specialist V-E-T's at the
SASH (Small Animal Specialist Hospital) in Sydney.
Now, I know that mostly we don't like V-E-T's,
but the people at SASH are completely pawsome!
 
I was originally referred to see Dr Philippa for my ear troubles.
Dr Philippa really likes skin and ears!
Mum says she's a Dermatologist for cats and dogs.
(Harrumph!)  I don't think much of her taste for woofies!
 
 
Dr Philippa looked in my ears, ordered some tests,
(including an MRI [Major Rude Invasion]), thought a lot about it,
and decided my ears were not the problem.  She referred me to Dr Andrea.
 
Dr Andrea is a specialist in all things feline,
so I reckon that means she has real taste and pizazz!
I like her even if I do growl at her occasionally!  Sorry Dr Andrea!
 
This is my 'I'm really sorry face'!
 
Dr Andrea has been quite the super sleuth and says I'm having 'sea shores'.
When I told Mum, she said I've got it wrong and says I'm having seizures.
I'm a bit glad I'm not having 'sea shores' coz the seashore gives you sand
in places that sand is not supposed to be! Phew!
  
 So, now I'm resting up a bit while my medication takes effect
and Dr Andrea finds a good dose for me.
 
Thank you to Dr Andrea and Dr Philippa, and all the other wonderful people at SASH.
You're my super heroes!

What a Week!

Whoa! What a week!  It's been a busy one.
Me Mum took Friday off work and drove to the capital city of Australia, Canberra.
It's about 320km one way.  She drove back in the same day coz she knew
I would be waiting for my dinner........and I was!
This is a sample of what she went to see - Floriade.
It's s spring flower festival held every year.
 
Pretty, eh?
 
I guarded the house with my scruffy fur.
Pusscats, do you see it around my left ear?
More drops for a yucky ear!  That stuff ruins my looks but my ear feels better!
  
Happy Sunday everycat.......and have a great week!

New Olympic Sport........

I'm going to approach the Pusscat IOC and ask them to consider
a new addition to their programme.
Did I hear you say "what is it?"
Well pusscats, it's LITTER FLICKING!
This morning my mum could not believe my skills at flicking this stuff,
so she got her tape measure out to take some data....................
2.5 metres (that's roughly 98 inches for my North American furriends).

She reckons I'm a sure thing to win this highly skilled sport
coz I'm a 'flicking champion'!  Wanna play?
But, don't think you can go including all the stuff you
trample around the house for miles and miles, coz that's not allowed.
What's your record?

Just So You Know...............

I'm a bit of a stirrer..........just in case you hadn't already figured that out!
 
I has NEVER had ice-cream or chocolate in my life.
Me Mum won't let me have it, but I do dream about it!
 
I was simply having a dig at my friend
Noela.........who really does love ice-cream...............sooooooo much!
 
As punnishment, I will write 50 lines on the blackboard
(with my specially adapted chalk for those of us without opposable thumbs!) -
"I must not upset my pusscat furriends".
 
And, I shall now go and hang my head in shame. Oops!
(Muttering to self - do I never learn?.....nope!  I could be like this for some time, then)

Ice-cream!

Paws up if you like ice-cream.
I know someone who lurves it........me and someone else,
but I promised I wouldn't tell!
My favourites are strawberry and vanilla and chocolate, and...............
 
Mum, please can I have some?  I've been vewy good!
Would this face lie?
 
Nah!  On second thoughts, give it to Noela.  She likes it more than me!
And Noela, save some for all the puss cats wot visit me today!
 
Do you know this song?
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice-cream!

Unimpressed!

Today was only the tenth day of Spring and the temperature
climbed to 32 degrees celsius!
Not only that, the air is full of bushfire smoke
which makes it hard to breathe.
 
It's not a good indicator for what is yet to come
when Summer hits.
Hope all the fire fighters are ok
and it cools down enough to sleep tonight.

Bossy Boots!

Pssst!  I got a secret for you...........come close so my mum does not hear.
She's pretty good at lip reading too, so I gotta whisper behind my paw!
She's da bossiest boots of dem all and says
"ya can't have dessert if ya don't eat ya dinner"!
 
 Did I do good?

 Me mum calls me Mr Charlie Woozle Gobble Guts Fluffy Bum when she's happy wiv me and Charles when I'm in BIG trouble!

I just heard all my names so I guess dessert is on its way!

But don't worry, I can hold on.  I has sharp needles! Heh!

Monday, September 2, 2013

Yaaaaay for me!

When me Mum arrived at work today,
look what she found in her handbag.....aside from the mess, that is!
 
Can you see the orange ping pong ball?
She said to me "Mr Woozle, you are quite the clever boy.
You scored a goal!"
I wonder if I can sneak 'me' into her bag tomorrow!
Do you think I'll fit?
Hmmmmmm!

I'm on base bass guitar!

Argh!
Good to see you all.
Have a Happy Sunday!
