So, I went to get my nails done this morning, and Next Door and I decided to try a new place because it had better selection than our normal place. Yeahhhhhh.....there were probably around 800 colour options. I have NEVER seen so much polish in one place in my life! My brain froze, and I didn't know what to do, so I ended up with bright, Hello Kitty style PINK on my toes. I hate pink. LOL
Da boss. Every org has a hierarchy and were no exception. this is Missy-Lou-Who and she's the top boss. If we were a criminal syndicate she'd be Al Capone before the syphalis. She's the smallest of all inhabitants of Chez Buffy at about 7.5 lbs (she's healthy - just small framed.) You'd think a tiny, 14.5 year old declawed* cat wouldn't be able to command the respect and deference, but she does. Even the 125 lb boxweiler obeys her. She is very sweet but the most opinionated and stubborn of all living things.
We got her and her sister over 12 years ago when they were 2. Initially she was equally friendly to everyone. Several months in Mr. Buffy had to go out of town for 10 days and she's hated him ever since. He's ridiculously affectionate with the fur babies and it still hurts his feelings. When I feed them she is right there purring and rubbing against my ankles. When he feeds them she sits out of arms reach just glaring at him and won't jump down to eat until he walks away. She sleeps on my side away from him and if I get out of bed she leaves it until aim back to be her barrier.
But years ago once she started hating him it spread to the boys so for years she would only be affectionate with me and mini-Buffy. Cuddly as can be - boys go to pet her and a hiss and swipe ...then run to hide under something.
about a year and a half ago a switch flipped snd she loved the boys. They can pet her, hold her, she meows at their doors to come in and hang with them...commandeers their laps when they sit down.
still hates Mr. Buffy. She looks at him with such disdain that I affaid if she could put out a contract on him - she would. Poor mr Buffy...she was sleeping and he went to pet her and she started purring and rolled tummy side up for more...opened an eye and saw it was him and hissed and ran off.

After sitting as still as possible in my parents garden I was rewarded with these 2 pictures of Mum or Dad Blue Tit going into the bird house on the shed to feed their babies, I had to take over 20 pics to get these 2 but it was so worth it. I was also able to hear the baby birds tweeting very quietly, the sound is too cute! Mum and Dad are very attentive to the babies and are in and out almost constantly bringing food, it is very peaceful to just sit and watch.
