Return to Muffinland (2)

As we were saying before Muffin nodded off… Muffin is a cat of many talents and of course is very photogenic too, although he does have his “off days”​

Generally food will cheer him up, or maybe a 

Guess who heard the magic word?

Don’t get me wrong, Muffin can chase a piece of string, laser pointer or even a twig.

In fact, he occasionally plays dolls when the whim takes him.

and he enjoys a box or plastic bag just like any other self respecting moggy.

But like many pets Muffin has slowed down a lot as he has gotten older, it is now 8 years since Muffinland first saw the light of day and Muffin is probably about 9 now and has slept for at least 7 of those years. In human terms he is roughly about 52 human years, which is almost as old as I am (although I have had much less sleep and no fishycookies).

Just talk to the paw…

At the end of the day Muffin is a wonderful gentle moggy that enjoys company and who is not averse to a dab of cream on his foot/feet. We have had many laughs because of him and each time I return to South Africa he looks strangely at me as if to say “Have I been asleep for so long?”

But, late at night as I battle jet lag I will feel him jump on the bed, release his limiters and wash his foot, safe in the knowledge that he can sleep late the next morning and all will be well in his world. 

And as for Pooty Applewater? there are other moggy’s at Muffin’s home now, and Muffin finally has some friends to wash and sleep with. Pooty is way too grumpy for that sort of frivolity and she still makes horrid noises when she sees him.

This is Floof (or something like that) and she is (he?) much friendlier

And the other moggy is way too fast to see: a grey streak across the lawn that is moving way too quickly for my camera or for Muffin. I may have a pic… but must find it first.  I do not know when/if I will be in the presence of Muffin again, but if ever I am I will send him your regards and he will wash his foot and fall asleep like he always does.
