Ruffling up some Fun!

Life's never easy. And in times of extreme adversity one finds it's easier to well, go along with things...

Particularly if those things involve one's Muttie's BF's offspring insisting you dress up as Elizabeth I, complete with ruffles:

For all you Non-Brits out there, this was an English, red-haired, Protestant Queen who had an incredibly long reign, as well as an affair with her Ghillie, the brazen Scot John Brown (oooer,). And there was a brill film on her reign starring the gorge Cate Blanchett.

Still, one can always turn a blind paw to misdemeanours and look to the future. And the future is rosy my friends. The Muttie One starts a new full-time commission tomorrow which means she's out of my whiskers five days a week for the next eight months. Meeeow. I almost don't know what to do with myself altho it will involve a certain amount of bird watching and mousing, that's for sure. And I'll have the place to myself. I wonder if Fatboy might want to come over for some tuna? I've kinda missed bashing him while I was staying at Paws. I've also heard there's a new dog on the prowl in our back yard. I'll have to get my paw down, and hopefully Fatboy will give me a helping paw or two too.

In the meantime, the Muttie one is braying away tonight 'cos she got a beautiful, colourful award from my old buddie Max:

I got the award, but the Muttie has claimed it. Apparently we have to answer a series of questions then pass it on. So here goes:

1. What would your prefect day consist of?

A bit of tuna for breakfast, the Muttie One could go tramping around with her camera and a book and I'd get peace. Then we'd meet up again and there'd be tuna for tea

2. How would you describe yourself if you were an item of clothing?

Something luxurious. Maybe a faux minx stole?

3. What hobbies are you currently working on?

Well, mousing is my main one. I like to concentrate on this while Muttie is doing her quilting and dreaming of getting her bony ass out on her bike

4. Walking in the woods in wellies or bare foot on the beach?

Oooh, definitely bare-pawed

5. Have you ever hugged or sung to a tree?

I've accomplished the odd recital. As for Muttie - don't even go there!! Remember, a cat's hearing is six times as sensitive as that of humankind. One tends not to encourage her.

6. Growing your own veggies or nipping to the supermarket?

Growng my own. One has fun gnawing the green bits off carrots

7. Have you found anyone exciting in your family tree?

Well, there was Uncle Ignacius who, as a Republican cat during the Spanish Civil War brought many a Nationalist mouse to its knees

8. Slap up meal in a posh restaurant or fish ‘n’ chips from the wrapper?

Oooh, def fish 'n' chips

9. Which element do you most resonate with, Earth, Air, Fire or water?

Fire, baby

10. Do you believe in fairies?

I do, of the whiskers variety and one that'll hopefully rescue me from Muttie...

Now, apparently I have to pass this along to five of my cattie pals..

She's great and I've learned so much from her: ten-lives-second-chances
Ok, we're talking canine's here, but he's a buddy terrierabouttown. 
He's one of ours but has his own identity: four-furry-friends
Muttie and Me love Lucky sillylupie
Muttie thinks this lady is as cool as a cat: snifflesandsmiles

  1. Awwww Milton you ruffled sweetie! And that ruffle does suit you - but I promise not to call you Lizzie or Lizbet or Queenie!

    Thank you for my nomination- it;s lovely!!!

    And well done your Muttie for her commission. Just think Milt - more commission = more tuna. Yum. Couldn't you just hug Muttie for landing that commission?!?! Of course you can, you know you want to! And while you're at it what about a big cuddle to lovely Fatboy? :-)

    Take care

  2. I must say, you look pretty darn cute! I loved your answers too & congrats on the nice award!

  3. Oh, Milt...I'm sure it isn't comfy, but you are so stylin'!!! And thank Muttie with all my heart for the award! I don't usually accept awards as they are so time consuming...but if I have a chance to answer these questions, I will...just because I like you and Muttie so very, very much!!! :-) You BOTH make me smile!!!! Love, Janine XO

  4. P.S. Congratulations also to Muttie on RECEIVING this award!!!! ~J.

  5. Milt, you are such a clever feline! Congratulations on your award (and shame on Muttie for claiming it as her own!) I am pleased and amused at the questionnaire associated with this award - quite different from the usual sort, you know. And your answers are so...Milty!

    Hope you have a wonderful relaxing week without Muttie in the house!

  6. Hey Milt - congratulations to Muttie and thanks for the award. I'll be passing that one on too.

  13. Milt Buddy!! Oh god (Protestant or not..).. purple is so your colour!!!
    But..but...but.... you are a MANCAT!!

    Love, Lucky

    P:S: Thanks for the award buddy!!! Working on it!

  14. Milt...I just wanted to thank you for your lovely words...and to ask you to tell Muttie that I think that if I still lived in GB that she and I would be the BEST of friends...and you? My favorite feline, of course ;-) Love, Janine XO

  15. Just checking to see what you and Muttie are up to! Sending love, Janine XO

  16. Milton, you look adorable in that!
    Humans are like that, but mine are more like that around christmas - Gosh, I'm dreading it! Bloomin 'eck though, why are they so persistant? I guess thats what we're like, but humans are sometimes just pathetic...
    Oh yeah, my google account got deleted so I had to start my blog again! :O I'd be yappy if you popped by!

  17. Milt buddy!!!

    Lucky's been bullied by fatty Ginger!

    Still, Lucky managed to give Ginger some taste of Monkey stances although one of Lucky's balls bled! Meowmmy had to apply this stinko paste on it! Poor, poor ball!

    Er..about our little secret ... psstt... how? I tell you, it is a great idea, imagine having a young one to brain-wash, taking all the blame, hehehe ... think about it ..
