Was Toffee on the naughty list?

Sorry it’s blurry – it’s an action shot…

Toffee is our elderly Egyptian street cat who hardly ever spoke until the other two alphas died.  Now she won’t shut up.  I have no idea where she gets it from (says the girl whose Nana exclaimed most nights, “The child has not stopped talking all day”).  I am a little annoyed with Toffee because Dad was in Europe for almost three weeks and she stopped saying thank you (a deep strange noise).  As soon as he returned, so did the thank yous…

We always get her a Christmas present, usually her favorite knitted toys filled with catnip.  As the Youtube video below shows, some one wasn’t entirely happy with her present.  I don’t know what’s funnier – her talking or me and what Dad is breaking in the background.  The video is also blurry (mom takes medication) but it is the sound that matters.

Given her human age is about 70 (15 next year), she got tuna for breakfast anyway, as did Miss Katniss.  Katniss is our feral outside cat who is about 3 years old.  She refuses to be trapped but is coming around for food 2 or 3 times a day.  Her fur is glossy and she is a little rounded but I don’t think she is pregnant.  Sometimes she runs towards me and then hisses when she remembers I am not her mom.

Doesn’t she look incredibly healthy?  She talks nonstop as well – no idea why…😸  Below is a shot of Dad in his enticing nightwear feeding her on Christmas morning.  She is pretending to be Greta Garbo because she sees me photographing her through the window.

    • Exactly! The only other time in her life she was loud was when she was about 6 months old. She went into heat and I could hear her caterwauling at the end of the STREET with closed windows. Dear Lord, it was the sound of a banshee.

  1. How adorable is that video? And how I laughed that Toffee forgot her thank you when Teddy was away only to mysteriously find them again the moment he returned – fickle beauty! And Katniss is so pretty and sleek. I loved this post!

    • That is so hilarious! Toffee is really old and beginning to behave like a cranky old lady. Katniss gets the discarded toys. Roxie is correct, though, since Toffee was plucked off the streets of Cairo, flown here and pampered for the last 14 and a half years. 😸
