He who rules… 9, February 2007

His Lordship was due for his shots today so I had to do the usual and jump him when he wasn’t expecting it and shove him into his carry box. He hates his carry box with a passion so this process is always… er… interesting.

The box has to be kept out of sight and everything has to be normal until a couple of minutes before lift off and then we cuff him and stuff him. He gets very cross, although he is very gentle and never bites or scratches. Despite this, you can tell he’s incandescant with rage.

Check the photo.


Normally, as you can see from THIS photo, he’s a bit more relaxed. It was taken on a very hot day in the summer. He is leaning against the opened window so he gets a nice draught to his tummy. The reason the window is not open further is because though fat this is the widest gap he will wedge into. Any bigger and he would fall through and plummet 20ft or so to next door’s garden, below. He didn’t appear to be particularly bothered about the prospect of falling out but that’s because he is a gumbee with no concept of where any parts of his body are at a given time or sense of self preservation.

Awwww. He does look like Kelsey’s cat, doesn’t he! I had an orange cat, Sammy Jake, who was about that size, caliber of fluff and Gumbeeness.

How old is he?

It’s amazing how something so Gumbee-like can suddenly be a little like trying to shove an open umbrella – an umbrella made with steel grappling hooks! – through a Barbie window..

Sammy Jake sounds lovely. As for the brolly-Barbie window analogy… Absolutely! He can make himself a very awkward shape when he wants to. He is somewhere between 11 and 13 as he’s a rescue cat and the vet who did his first certificate for his shots put his age at “2 – 4 years”.

Our vet thought he was in very good condition for his age, I reckon that’s down to his sense of humour – very much in evidence – we reckon it keeps him young!
