Miss Dilly and Co. Faulty Felines #cats

It occurred to me that my cats are faulty.  Why? Empty boxes. Endless youtube clips and postings from friends find the reaction of their feline darlings to a box of any kind  entertaining  with often hilarious antics. Continue reading

Miss Dilly & co : and the house in chaos

The cats have hated the house in chaos whilst the new kitchen is being installed.

Oberon and Betty Poop have retreated to the back bedroom – often hiding beneath the spared bed.

Miss Dilly wanders freely around the house and does not seem to be affected as much, except that she has taken to hiding in the front room in some as yet undiscovered spot. Three times in the past week she has been inadertently shut in there. You would think she’s learn after the first time…  but no, she prefers to pick her way through the chaos and lurk in unexpected places! She is, after all, Miss Dilly!

Miss Dilly & Co: Tyrant Queen

dilly-queen-smallThis morning we had proof, should there ever have been doubt, that Miss Dilly is a tyrant… More of that later.

Miss Dilly & Co : Lending and Bending of Ears

ya boo.jpgWhen Oberon came to sit on my lap last night he was being a real mard-arse, moaning and complaining and demanding attention.

Recently spotted : Miss Dilly chasing a mouse which went to ground in its hole at the base of the wall at the top of the garden.

Undaunted our intrepid hunter settled down to await its re-emergence and waited

And waited…

And waited… Continue reading

Miss Dilly & Co : British Blue

I may have mentioned before that Miss Dilly is obsessed with Hooman-food.

The sound of the fridge door opening will bring her running every time, because we may possibly be making food of some kind that involves chicken or ham or beef or most especially her favourite Hooman-food of all… cheese! Continue reading

Miss Dilly & Co – juuuuuuuuuust a little on the contrary side #cats

In preparation for moving house, and anticipating the need to keep the feline occupants indoors for a few weeks (an act of self defence), we have invested in a couple of covered cat litter trays.

As the tribe have never used cat flaps, and even Oberon the baby of the tribe is nine years old and set in his ways,  I removed the swing-lids. My thinking being that they would need to be used to the cover before I confuse the little darlings with doors!

Now you’d think that would not be a problem were it not for the rules of the Dilly tribe. Accept no changes – give no quarter.  Continue reading
