Austria IV: Home Hum!
by Whiskers, Adventurous World Traveller
Hello my friends,
It has been a while since my last addition to our blogs. I'm home! Ho Hum! Life here is boring. No longer the only puss in the household, I must share it with 4 others. What a nuisance! Or as Winnie the Pooh would say, O bother!
Well, first let me tell you, my experiences in my travels were amazing. I met our friends Eddie and Bailey of Comet's Corner on my trip to Austria, met many other lovely and helpful folks between the airport and my final destination, and had the most wonderful 10 months or more being top cat and only cat in a household where I was adored, fed the best foods, slept in the best chairs undisturbed. It was wonderful and I enjoyed every minute of the being pampered, travelling to special places to see the sights and sounds of Austria, and THE FOOD!
But now I'm home. Ho Hum! No spectacular mountains nearby! No Vienna Opera! No Schnitzel Houses! Here I get, "Whiskers, get out of Etude's food!" "Whiskers, that's my chair! Scram!" "Whiskers, stop hissing and swatting the boys!" Whiskers, blah, blah blah!
This is no fun! Not only that but the others carried on without me. I see I wasn't needed, nor was I missed. Rondo started his poetry blogs, Etude wooed his sweetheart, Raina. Mousie wrote about me and my travels, Sweetie, wrote a blog and took over grooming adding that to her patrolling the perimeter for intruders and they all took over my favourite beds.
Well, family! I am home! I am about to carve out a new niche for myself..... and I think I should model it after my Austrian life. What do you think, friends?
What's that, Sweetie? You're going to let me have my grooming the family task back!... awww! That's so sweet! Thank you. And you'll all share the beds with me? Oh, okay! Now what about bringing me my meals at my whim? That's what I thought! The old girl controls the larder, doesn't she! Well, I tried. Ho Hum!
Awwww! Looks like they missed me after all. I guess I'll stay.
Oh, and there's going to be a big party for all the birthdays since I left for Austria ... in the Virgin Islands. Aunty M, or as her Many Claws crew call her Mommy Person... is opening her doors to anyone and everyone who wishes to attend. It's a beach party and it should be magnificent. Aunty M is the best hostess... or as Grammy says, The hostess with the mostest! AND Little Boy Cat is catering the event so you are guaranteed lots of variety and no shortage of food. Attendees so far are: Third and Mitzy, Seville of Nerissa's Life, our crew, Raina (Etude's sweetie) and of course the Many Claws in St Croix gang and us, the Mischief and Mayhem crew. Everyone is welcome and if we missed you in the list, forgive me. I'm still getting adjusted to life in a 5 cat household... and it's a little bit hectic. Oh, Grammy, you can have your chair! … the old grump!!!
Ho Hum be gone! Hidey Ho, friends, I'm home! and excitedly anticipating our next adventure ... don't forget to be there Sunday at 3. We'll be looking for you.
As always, friends, Comments are welcomed. Keep them light and fun.

Yes, I agree, Raina. I need my own niche. I think it should be Diva with young waiters to cater to my every whim. No-one is in that niche here at the moment. I think Grammy might vie for the same.... Not a chance, Grammy. What do you think about Etude and Rondo being my wait staff?

That's a good thing. My goodness the tears when I left caused a flood at the airport delaying flights. It was terrible.
