Moving Home

In a couple of months Bonnie, myself, our cat Sasza and our humans will be moving to our new home. Bonnie and I have been there a lot as we have had to check progress on how the house was being built. We currently have a small garden and in the new house will have a very big garden. This makes me very happy.

As you probably know from my blog I can be a bit of worrier from time to time. Everything seems to be fine with the new house. The humans talk a lot about something called money. Bonnie though that this was what the house is built of but I understand it is something which humans get for staring at computer screens from companies such as Solitaire Corporation. They then use this to buy dog food, cat food and other stuff like the stuff which is used to build houses. I will let the humans worry about this. My worry is about moving the cat.

Our new house is actually two houses. There is a big house and a garage with a flat on top. There is already one of our humans living there. On two occasions Sasza has been brought there. She hid under the bed for most of the time. This seems to be typical behaviour for a cat.

 

Giant Cat Heating Machine

Giant Cat Heating Machine

In the middle of the room there is a machine where humans burn wood and other stuff. This machine gives off heat into the room and it seems to be a very clever device. Sasza has informed Bonnie and I that this a “Giant Cat Warming Machine”. She says that this is a very good thing. Bonnie told us that there is an even bigger “Giant Cat Warming Machine” in the big house. Sasza may have been very pleased to hear this but she is a cat and pretends to be cool about everything. She just said OK. I think she will like this new house with its “Giant Cat Warming Machine” and I am bit less worried about the move.

Tail thumping Orchestra

I was sitting at home the other day in very good form as I often am. I started banging my tail against the floor. It struck me that the sound is not unlike the sound of some of that stuff that humans listen to from their CDs and radios. I have an idea and it is this. We could get a lot of dogs in a big room, preferably one of those rooms which makes a bark extra loud, and we could create The Tail Thumping Orchestra. There could be a few big Wolfhounds or St Bernard dogs doing the bass, the Collies and German Shepherd dogs could provide the beat and we, Corgis, would be the lead tail thumpers. Who knows we might even get some Cats in to provide harmonies.

I have even some ideas for the music The Tail Thumping Orchestra could play.

The Greeting – The idea here is to recreate the feeling when one of your humans is coming home. It would start with silence then a lone tail thumping softly. The lone tail would get strong and be joined by other tails and finally there would be a huge joyous crescendo of tails thumping widely.

Breakfast – This would start slowly but quickly get into the crescendo of banging tails before getting slower again.

Waiting for the Walk – This could be slightly longer and would have several highpoints where the dog thinks the walk is imminent only to get quieter as they realize it is not going to happen yet. There would then be a final highpoint signalling the door has opened.

Chasing the Cat – On second thoughts the section providing the harmonies might object to this.
