Intruder Alert!

My apologies for not writing a blog entry sooner. I’ve been relegated to the bedroom, and it has been difficult for me to get access to the laptop which is in “her” half of the house.

“She” is a four-legger with a long nose and a funny ear. Her name is Josie, aka Josie Nosie, aka Piddly Pants. I’ve been told she is a greyhound, but she looks more like a black and white hound to me.

She’s noisy and a bit smelly but the hoomans seem to pay her a lot of attention. She goes round and round and round and round and then stops suddenly for a nap. She pees every two seconds - usually on the floor. The other day she ate my biscuity vomit AND she has stolen some of MY toys. She even had the nerve to take my straw mousie! But luckily mum hooman put it out of her reach as she knew that would be the straw for me.
That is - sorry - WAS my other mousie. The nerve!
Big sisfur Meg doesn’t think much of Josie either. She backs off and hisses or growls just like me but has gotten a little closer to her than I have. Close enough to get into shot of a camera.
A meeting
Close enough to be on the receiving end of the puppy chase of annoyingness.
A chasing
I’m going to try my hardest to be civil to Josie. Mostly so I can have my cat tree and the lounge step back. Perhaps I might be able teach her how to behave in a more respectfurble manner.
OK, she is a little bit cute. I suppose.

And on another note - HAPPY NEW YEAR! May 2011 treat you all with lots of tunas and Party Mix!


  1. Hmmm... you know you two could band together and teach the new one who's in charge...

    (Rumblemum is saying that Josie is pretty cute. I'm ignoring her on your behalf)

  2. We have been! Big sister actually slept on the hoomans bed at the same time as I was on it yesterday! It's like bizarro world at our house at the moment.

  3. Mum has two GAP greyhounds, one's quite shy but lovely and the other is a a labrador.

    They live with a crazy young moggy, and he has discovered that he is immune from greyhound cooties when sitting inside his mesh laundry hamper. *nod*

    Oh, they regularly eat his mousies too. :(

  4. Have a wonderful New Year... Treat Josie with lots of hugs and purrs. It'll drive her crazy trying to figure out what you're up to...

    Besides that... Happy New Year. Tunas to you too...

    Pawhugs, Max

  5. We are purraying that it will all work out for you....and that you will become good friends......we've never had to adjust to a doggy in our lives, as we are apartment dwellers, and mama had to sign a lease that said we will be her only 2 darlings during the term of the lease.


  6. glad to see you back! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

    You and Josie will become friends in no time! Trust me!

  7. Happy New Year!

    The woofie ate your YAK!!?? Well, we must admit to ingesting a "warm dinner" occasionally, too. Tasty!

    We're visiting all our friends today..we must fly!

    Luv, The Katnip Lounge Horde

  8. Hi there Darwin, we wanted to pop by to wish you and your family a healthy and happy New Year!!!

  9. Hi Darwin! We hope you are having a good New Year so far - we are so behind in stopping by to say hi! We are sorry you have an intruder there - but she is pretty cute at least! We hope that you don't have her there for too long (of course she may be gone by now - we are that behind!)
