A Day in the Life of…..Grumble
07.45 - Charlotte and Pu have just arrived. I’m quite tired but I should meow a lot to make them feel like I’ve missed them. They always fall for it and give me my breakfast. They’re not so bad….for humans.
08.00 – All that mackerel in tomato sauce has woken me up! Time to jump up onto the Reception desk, rip up some paper and chase after a dragonfly. Oh, there’s a butter fly – even better!!
08.10 – Hey, there’s Tiger! He might be a boy and my brother, but when it comes to fighting, I’m the Champion! Maybe I should let him win sometimes….
08.20 – I really wish that Hero would stop trying to be friends with me. He’s a dog and I’m a cat – it’s just never going to work! I am getting fed up with having to arch my back and hiss at him.
08.30 – A little bit thirsty now. Licking the glass door of the refrigerator is definitely the best place to get a nice cold drink of water – even if the humans think it makes me looks stupid!
08.40 – Oh good! Charlotte and Wilco are cleaning up the beach. Let’s dig holes in the sand. Hang on, waving flags – excellent hiding place so ….I….can….jump out and attack Wilco’s toes – toes are just the right size for chewing on!
09.05 – Now I’m REALLY tired – off to bed. Hmmm, where shall I go? Upstairs? The Equipment Room? One of the lockers? Ayesha’s chair? Decisions, decisions…. Good night!
14.30 – Time to wake up I think – the Equipment Room really is so nice and cool. BIG stretch, quick run-a-round on the beach and then into the In-tray on Reception – it’s a perfect fit and I can watch everything going on…if I can stay awake long enough….
15.05 – These humans do insist on waking me up. Can’t they see I am asleep? I know I am cute, but, people, please, have some respect! Maybe I can get Pu to make me a “Do Not Disturb” sign. Brilliant idea – I’m so clever sometimes!
15.20 – What’s that smell? Oh it’s Renny – hopefully they will give her a bath again today. Dogs just don’t understand personal grooming like us cats…
17. 10 – Where’s all that noise coming from? Oh yes, the humans have come back from that big wet place – I think they call it the sea – I’m really not sure what it is they do out there, but they all seem very happy. Maybe I can find someone to play with now….
17.25 – ….Brilliant – it’s paper time – Charlotte and Pu love it when I attack the folder where they keep all the Check-In sheets!
17.40 – Time for another cat nap in the In-tray….
18.00 – What’s going on? Why is Charlotte carrying me? Wait, don’t close up, meow, listen to me, meow, it’s too early for me to go out partying…….Hey, where did they go? Oh well, might as well get myself ready for another night out on the tiles…!
