IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE.

If we were having coffee: I would  tell you to sit  down  and put  your feet up  and  take it easy!

I’d tell you: today I was up  early  and  at  the gym  by 7.30am…. I hate  the gym  but if I do not exercise  regularly  I seize up! After the gym I went home sorted the washing had breakfast then washed  and changed. Then I picked a friend up  and took her to a job interview. While  she was there I took the opportunity to  drop in to see my  sister for a cuppa.

While  we were chatting  I noticed  her two ( feral cats) were sitting  by her french doors watching me. Nothing  very unusual  there I hear  you say  but! These cats have ignored  and given me  a wide  birth for over a year  now.

My sister  has a house abroad  and there had been a cat that  had  had a litter of kittens in her garden about 18 months ago..  The residents  had sent  round  a letter  telling  people  not to feed  the feral cats, well my sister,  never one  for rules,  ignored  the missive.

Sadly  the mother cat  and  all but two of  the kittens died  so F took  the survivors  into  her  house and she and her hubby  fell in love  with them. As  time  for their  return  home approached  they had  the cats, checked out , deloused  and spade and doctored and  chipped even got them their  own passports.  They would not be left  behind.

When my  sister  and her  husband  flew  home the kittens began  their train  journey  home too. Well the cats  were used to my sister  and her husband  but  they have taken a long time  to accept  anyone  else. So the fact  that they both  sat still long enough  for me to photo them and  for the female ( the feistiest of the two ) to circle me three times and eventually  sniff  my  feet! was a huge  landmark.

VID_20140707_125559749I’d tell you: After picking  my friend up  after  her job interview  she asked  me back  for coffee.  I drink  my  coffee black  and because  today  was a hot one  I was thirsty. I went to the sink  to put  some cold  water  into  my  hot coffee. Out of the corner of  my eye I saw her cat jump up on to the sink unit beside  me.

What  the ? I squeaked, my friend  just laughed… he wants a drink  she told me. Imagine  my amazement as I watch  the cat drink  from the tap!

I had  never seen this  before. I know  cats  are  clever and do amazing things   but!!

I’d tell you : That  photo of  the cat was  supposed  to be a video….. I am working on that! For  now  a photo will have to do until I find out how to transfer the video  to wordpress!

Well it has  been a feline  day today and that was only  the morning! I did get home mid  afternoon, did some  housework, prepared  tonight’s  and tomorrows  dinner.

If we were having coffee I’d ask  you : would you like another  cuppa, or  a biscuit . I’d  tell you I have really  come to enjoy  these chats  and I’d  love  to here  what you would  tell me , If we were having coffee.
