Tank Wars

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?"
Sookie: "Err...."
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!!

You two do have a lot of great events coming up. We love your tank. Mahoney and Maggie do that thundering hooves of elephants through the house. Hope all of you have a great week .

Brian said...

That tank is so cool and so much fun is going on! Happy 2012 to you all!

The Island Cats said...

Good thing they didn't try to take the mirror out with that tank! Heehee!

Cory said...

We want a tank!!!! MOM!!!!!!!

My momma Ellie is purrring...she thinks Mr. Darcy kinda looks like her, only more manly.



Tamago said...

Hahaha, Sookie, you will dominate the world with the tank loaded with cat nip mice someday! If Mr Darcy does not come in the way to tickle you :-) I'd love to see them in a tank. It will be so cute.
You will be much busier, but we sure want to see you all here. We wish you a wonderful year with lots of fun!!

Wow - M says she's tired just listening to all you have to do. We love the new header at the top of your page - it's gorgeous.

Fuzzy Tales said...

That tank is just so awesome. :-)

Yes, our mom always has been awed by how two small Beings -- even one small Being -- can make so much noise galloping through the house.

Our mom understands re: the blogging, trust us. It might take a while, but we hope a balance can be found for your mom and ours too!

Kjelle Bus said...

Off course me and mom will join you in all the stuff you have to celebrate !
You knoe I never miss a party ;-)

Katnip Lounge said...

We ALL need tanks and then, make a battalion! Today the Catio, tomorrow, the world!
We think your tank decorations are FAB.

Sparkle said...

You kitties need to stop wrassling with each other and team up - World Domination is only accomplished with all cats working together!

Lucy the Cat said...

What fun they have with the tank! I just love this post!

We love your blog but totally understand about maybe having to post less. I go back to work tomorrow too and can sadly only post once a week.

I was in London during the Queen's Silver Jubilee. I was 9 or 10 years old and had the time of my life and got to see the Queen and her family many times. It sounds like you have many fun things to look forward to this year!

ABBY said...

We love your blog and glad to hear you will be able to continue posting. Congrats on the new position that is marvelous. We love seeing Mr Darcy and Sookie your pictures are always so beautiful as they are.


Mel said...

yes, the idea of back to work tomorrow is just... horrifying, lol. I've been off since Dec 24th so it seems like a really, really long time.

But as you said.. only a four day work week!

I dont live in England but boy am I excited for the Jubilee it will be as fun as the wedding which I was totally glued too.

I love your plan for world domination by the way, I bet you make everything tons and tons cuter

Eric and Flynn said...

We like your tank but we can see it would be a tight fit to get inside. Firing catnip mousies sounds like fun.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

I don't think I would put my face in the line of fire like that! MOL!


Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Yay! A new post. I just love Sookie and Mr D! I am pretty svelte so I think I would fit in that pawsome tank! (Besides, S & Mr D are FLOOFY, not you know, that other F word!)

We lubz your Queen and hope that Prince Philip is recovering XOXO

Remington said...

Cool tank! You certainly have a good time at your house!

Rebecca said...

The tank seems to be a big hit for Mr Darcy and Sookie. We have thunder feet here too only x 4 quite the noise lol.
I have my blog by I am so not regular on it - if people have it in their google reader or emails then we get it when you have time to blog.

Alfie said...

wow congrats to Darcy on his upcoming gotcha day! That tank looks like so much fun! I need one of those, but a tug boat hehe.

P.S. I love Darcy's "wait a minute" face. Cat calendar material :)
