Off with a Bang, or Going with the Flow!

What a pleasant surprise for you lot. You didn't expect to hear from me again until next week, did you? This is a little bonus. You will recall, the last time I wrote, the one I don't trust was going away until next week - excellent news, but the drawback being that he took my computer with him. Well, would you believe it, he only went and turned up on the doorstep this morning. You could have knocked me down with a feather. We have been enjoying a rare old time - the pretty one has spoilt us rotten. Extra prawns, sleeping all night (and most of the day) on the bed, no abuse when digging holes in the garden - it's been truly wonderful, how life should be.

Why has he come back early I hear you cry. Apparently he was supposed to get on an aeroplane this morning but a volcano erupted! I immediately dived under the bed, you can't be too careful can you! I'm sure I would have noticed a volcano going off, I mean, not much gets past me! It would have woken me up. He insists it's true though.Apparently the volcano is a little way north of here - in the next road I expect. It has chucked out so much ash and dust, that nothing is allowed to fly. What an opportunity I thought - I rushed straight out into the garden to see what the birds were up to. I mean if they can't fly, it should be easy for me to catch the little critters. Much to my disappointment, no one seems to have told them, because they were still flitting about as usual. They ought to be careful though, I mean if they fly over the top of the volcano they will roast - Mmmmmm.... roast pigeon, very tasty!

As regular readers know, we live in London, near the airport, so aeroplanes fly over our back garden all day, and most of the night! Damn nuisance they are - every time I doze off, another one goes over the top. Now come to think of it, we haven't seen one for days now, so there must be some truth in this. I wonder how long this will go on for - until the dust settles I expect, Ho Ho Ho..... There is some good news - the return home by the one I don't trust is only temporary. He is off again tomorrow, having made alternative arrangements to travel by train. Not sure where he is off to, don't really care actually, as long as he goes! He is going to take my computer again, so I won't be back until next week when he returns.Well, that's my lot for today. It's all I've got time for. I was going to tell you all about my recent exploits in the garden but that will have to wait. To cut a long story short, he planted lots of seeds before he went away, and then devised a cunning plan to stop me rolling on top of them. When he finds out his plan failed there could well be a volcano closer to home - he will blow his top! I've always said he was full of hot air! I'm off to look for the volcano, I can smell roast pigeon. See you next week. What a Life! AlbertThe(quaking)Cat.

  7. Roast pigeon-Excellent! Much better than a butty and clotted cream. Although, I do love a good butty-who doesn't? Nothing like a good volcano blast to throw the world in turmoil and bring home the one you don't trust. Least the trains were running. Cheerio Albert and come by and visit me sometime when you are done napping, eating prawns and roast pigeon.

  8. Dear Albert, your blog is absolutely delicious and you are so cute ! We are 2 lovely cats from Brasil, but unfortunately our blog is written in portuquese.
    Our (human) brother is studying in France this year and the volcano caught him in London, but he's happy anyway because your city is incredibly beautiful.
    Our housekeeping staff is just like yours, there's the one we don't trust (we just hate him !) and the good looking one (who we love !)
    Meows for you from Rutha and Pink

  9. My dear Albert, if the One You Don't Trust upsets your digestion by leaving and returning, well, you can stay with us...all the prawns you can eat. Promise! My hub and I miss our darling Chena (she's chasing mice in the clouds over Virginia now). And, you're right, roast pigeons, yum! Hope you didn't get any of that volcano stuff on your gorgeous hair.
