Sookie: "A few little adjustments to make and then my dastardly plan for world domination shall be complete!"
Sookie: "I'll just move the canon to the right a smidgen... excellent! Now all I have to do is wait..."
Mr Darcy: "Ooh The Tank... let's see what whiffies it has for me today!" *sniff sniff*
Sookie: "My plan is working! Time to load in the cat nip mices and get ready to fire!"
Mr Darcy: "Wait a minute... "
Mr Darcy: "Sookie! Is this another one of your foolish attempts at world domination?"
Mr Darcy: "That's it, to the battlefield: I challenge thee to a duel!"
Sookie: "Oh drat!"
Mr Darcy: "Prepare to meet your maker!"
Sookie: "Haha that tickles Mr Darcy!"
Mr Darcy: "Haha... okay now chase me!!!"
It may be a new year, but old habits die hard. We were woken by a thunderous crash this morning... upon investigation it transpired that a hearty game of chase had resulted in our dressing room mirror being knocked over. Both cats are now well over 4kg so they really do sound like a 'thundering herds of elephants' as they bolt up and down the stairs and around the house!
The cats are loving their new toy the cardboard tank. I think they are supposed to get in it, but I doubt either would easilly fit (don't tell them I said that!). However they are enjoying clambering over it, chewing the edges and stalking one another around it, so I'd call it a success!
I hope that everyone has had a lovely Christmas and New Year break - we have enjoyed lots of down time just chilling out at home with the kitties, it's been so relaxing. Unfortunately it's time to go back to work tomorrow to do *gasp* four whole days in a row - what a shock to the system that will be! Next month I start my new job which means more responsibility and most likely much longer hours, so I'm not sure how often I'm going to be able to blog - but I'm having too much fun as part of the Cat Blogosphere to quit now so maybe I'll just need to post a little less often... we shall have to see how things go.
Plus there is so much to look forward to in the UK this year - for a start it's the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in June marking her 60 year reign and then in July we are hosting the Olympic games! On a more personal note, Mr Darcy will be celebrating his 2nd Gotcha Day at the end of January and Sookie will be 2 in March.
So get ready to join in the celebrations my friends, it's going to be a great year!!
