Here's looking at you, hoomin

So I go to pull down the bedroom blinds and think I see Elbie's reflection in the window, but it isn't. It must be a cat on the other side of the window. For a couple of seconds I wonder how on earth Elbie got out ... and then I recognise the face. It's Red, our frequent visitor.

Of course, when I get close enough to turn on my bedside lamp to see who it is, he jumps down on to the fence and then down to the ground. So now he's taking a leaf from Elbie's book and getting on the extension roof as well! Red has now been upgraded to creepy, because seeing him outside the window looking in ... that's such a horror film trope.

A smartphone with a good camera, finally!

My new mobile phone (it's a Samsung Galaxy Ace 3) has a very good camera, apparently, so here's a picture of cutestuff who has been very cuddly today. Normally he'll only really come for a cuddle at night. Today, he's also taken to a cuddle in the middle of the night AND when it was time to get up in the morning.

Maybe he's just happy we opened one of the bedroom windows for him the other night so he could get in. I called for him to come in several times, but he didn't appear. Hubby went upstairs and outside the bathroom window was ... Elbie, who couldn't quite figure out all he had to do was to jump in through the window. I went and got the keys for the bedroom windows instead, as they open like doors, and called him over. We think he might have been up there a while and then got confused and uncertain as to how to get back down, as he was meowing outside the bathroom window.
