Here are some of the daily doings of Plum and her owner.
Plum, my human pet is just like this when she brings in logs for the wood burner. Plus she makes sneery comments like "It's alright for you, lying around on the sofa all day".Best to ignore it.Love Biff xx
Thank you for your good advice Biff. I have discovered that you are always right. How did you get to be so brainy? Please could you be my Life Coach?Lots of love Plum xxx
Yes, I'm also a bit miffed. I tried to help my human pet when she was taking the bins and recycling out. I was holding open the door by wedging myself in the doorframe which I thought was extremely helpful but just received angry glares and loud noises in return. I'm now lying on my bed with my back to her to make a point.Love Brody.
Oh, Brody. I know that feeling. And do they ever say sorry? No. Only if they step on you or something by mistake which hardly counts. Love Plum.
Dear Plum, Owners can be so unappreciative, I know. James always used to shout and yell when my dear late sister used to try to help him light the fire. Knowing he was unaccountably volatile at such times, she would sit as close as possible on top of the wood and paper to offer her support, and then he would shout and yell again. We never found out why. She went on like this throughout her life, but never made any progress. I wonder where the new studio is. Somewhere convenient for you I hope, so you too can offer your support. love, KatiePS. Thanks for your faith in James's book. He may quote this in letters to publishers: 'There aren't nearly enough books about dogs and you must be bonkers' Plum Or maybe not.
Dear Katie,I don't want to criticise poor Emma too much as I've just remembered that the whole reason for moving the studio is ME. Because it was so far from her old one to the park and it used to upset her that I just whined all the time when we were there. Well, it WAS really boring. So the new one is at the end of the garden! I don't even have to go in if I don't want to. Love Plum
I feel your pain Plum, my Mum is equally unappreciative when I try to supervise her while she is doing house work. When she is making the bed I sit in the middle of the mattress to make sure she is doing it right and now she just makes the bed right over me! It's not always easy to squirm out from under a fitted sheet is a graceful manner I can tell you. I also jump in the dryer to make sure the clothes are completely dry, and sit on the edge of the bathroom sink when Mum is washing her face or brushing her teeth to make sure she is getting really clean and she even spit toothpaste on my head just because I stuck my head in the sink to make sure the drain was clear while she was brushing. She said it was an accident but I have my suspicions!
Gosh, Gracie! I'm surprised your mum hasn't had a heart attack. Luckily, I wouldn't fit in the dryer - but even if I could... I once heard of an awful story about a cat that got into a washing machine. I won't tell you what happened, but even though you are a cat, I would hate you to do that. Stick to the bed and comfy cushions pleeease.Love Plum.
Plum our owners just don't deserve us on times! Today, after Andrea came home from work, instead of taking me and my visiting cousin Millie the teeny weeny shitzu with FAR too much attitude for a nice long walk in the evening sunshine, she decided she simply HAD to take down the "gazebo". I have to say I found this highly inconsiderate as I have been using it for target practice whilst weeing for weeks now. Then she simply HAD to mow the lawns. I sat on the lead for a bit to help her remember not to cut through it but she just shouted at me. Ingrate!
I am sorry that you've had to put up with so much. I don't dare say any more about Emma as she is breathing over my shoulder. But I'll say one more thing -I DO UNDERSTAND!
