What you sow, you reap.

       You should be more careful with your thoughts and actions Mr Midnight. Craftily sneaking up behind me while I cat-nap to finsih the last drops of milk out of my saucer is very cheeky. I believe it´s called “stealing”.

       I`m just following my natural instincts Sir Winston.

       I suppose there´s nothing wrong with that; although all souls reap what they sow in life you know.

       To tell you the truth, I had already noticed that. My greedy appetite got the better of me.

I should know better really, what with having studied the human race for so long, but after all, I am only a small, little pussy cat.

      It´s a shame the humans are not more switched on to how their actions (and thoughts)  effect the world they live in.  I don´t really like to say it but I thought humans were more intelligent than us pussy cats.

They appear to find it just as hard to accept such a fact, as we do.

      Possibly because like me, they just follow their natural instincts.

Perhaps humans are not supposed to live respectfully with one another. Perhaps humans need to suffer with which to experience life. Perhaps humans are still not aware of the TRUE meaning of love.

Such notions would certainly explain modern, human behaviour.

       Well, as I´ve already mentioned, we´re no better are we.

       But we do not pretend to be something of which we´re obviously not.

Power and money often seem to be the prime motivator for many human activities.

I´m terribly confused as to why human beings appear to believe that they are respectful, loving and generous when there are so many tragedies and suffering in our world, rapid environmental change issues and so much deep resentment towards other cultures within our societies.

What we sow is what we reap.

       That´s perhaps why so many countries on our planet are struggling with their finances. Bad energy is generated when countries invent legislature that is against humanism. Governments make their actions legitmate by calling it “the law” but their modus operandi is not necessarily correct and humanistic.

If one cons people, then one will be conned as well. If we give from the heart, then we will receive from the heart. That is the law of attraction.

       I cannot promise anything Sir Winston, but in future, I will certainly try to not steal any more milk from you, otherwise I suspect you´ll steal my milk.  🙂

       We both wish you humans all the best with your endeavours to become even better human beings.

With love from Sir Winston and Mr Midnight.   🙂

Mobile phones, television sets, soccer and automobiles.

       What´s all that about – mobile phones, television sets, soccer and automobiles?

       I´ve no idea Sir Winston. I suppose they could be linked to the human races survival packet.

       But I thought a human survival packet was similar to a cats survival packet – you know; plenty of exercise, good nourishment, lots of nice sleep and time for play.

       Well, I haven´t seen many human beings using that kind of survival pack Sir Winston. If they did, most of them would be more balanced, healthier and much happier human beings. I`m afraid I don´t see many of those kind of humans when I`m on my travels.

I really think that the humans have swapped their instinctive survival pack for the one you mentioned above.  They can´t seem to live without mobile phones, television sets, soccer and automobiles.

       I see what you mean. You could be correct in your assumption Mr Midnight. I suppose most human beings would really be lost without such items.

How would they cope?

They would have to write down messages on paper, create their own sources of entertainment, move about a bit, and move about even more!

How terribly old fashioned.

       Just imagine, a human being would sit down (with a nice cup of tea or saucer of milk) and write a letter (with a pen, not a touch screen) to a friend, asking them if they would like to go for a nice walk to watch some form of entertainment in the village.  It doesn´t bare thinking about does it?

       I can imagine most of the poor darlings would get out of breath just thinking about such a notion.

       But, don´t you think they´d realise that somethings not quite right somehow?  You know, their constant illnesses possibly getting on their nerves, their short concentration spans, their dissatisfaction’s and their aggressive mood swings becoming intolerable?

       I very much doubt it Mr Midnight. It seems to be a human thing to want to suffer in life. It possibly has something to do with the learning curve. That´s how some of them wish to learn and experience things in the long run.

It appears easier (and certainly less time consuming) to write hacked-up messages on a machine or to take a moving vehicle on the shortest journey. The poor darlings. You have to feel sorry for them don´t you?

       Human beings have so much going for them, what with their technology and extensive knowledge of the planet. On the technology side of things, we cats have absolutely no idea.  Humans are incredibly intelligent creatures; it seems they just choose to not show that intelligence so often.

We cats haven´t got a hope of a chance of becoming as advanced as the human beings but then again, feline creatures (as of all creatures of this planet) are usually a lot more healthier, satisfied and more intact with their environment.

Oh well, I suppose it´s all a human thing. It seems that everyone is on their path.

Perhaps we can help the humans a little more on their journey through life – that´s why we wrote our little book; “A Helping Paw“, which daddy informs me should be on the market in March 2019.  Maybe a reader of two would be interested.

A New Year . . . . .

       Apparently, another year has commenced; but speaking as a cat – I´m not too sure what a “year” is exactly.

      I think “a year” is a human instrument for measuring “time” Mr Midnight.

       Is that why it´s so terrifyingly loud when this “year” thingamajig starts?  Human instruments are always quite loud and as a rule, not very nice for cats ears. I´m not too keen on all those flashing lights and loud bangs either.

       I didn´t mean that “a year” was a musical instrument Mr Midnight. “A year” is a way for humans to measure how much time they´ve been living on the planet.

       Well, I can´t remember how long I´ve been here this time around. It seems like ages. We´ve had quite a few cold spells that´s for sure. Perhaps we could measure the time in “cold spells”?

       The reason you don´t know how long you´ve been here is because you have no interest in counting those years.

       When my time is up, it´s up, and I can then go back home again to wait until my next journey. “Time” is not really all that important is it?

       The humans seem to think it´s important. I´ve heard from Mrs Hedgehog that some humans even get their mid-life crisis when they edge towards certain age groups.

       But how do they know they´re at a mid-life point? Do humans have powers we cats never knew they had?

       Beats me Mr Midnight. I didn´t think one knew when one went “back home” again but apparently, some humans get into a right faff about their mid-lives.

       Isn´t it better to live life in the moment?  After all, that is where life is at and only the moment is true to now.

       Well, it´s now the start of another year so maybe some people will make a resolution to live their lives in the moment.

       That sounds quite pawsable; sorry, I meant plausible!

This “New Year”” thingy can be used to turn a new leaf with which to try and enjoy life a little bit more.  We all have problems in life, even us cats, but that is what life is all about – to discover the beauty of our souls and planet and to find solutions to those tasks which seem sometimes, so impossible.

       Yes, life is truly magnificent if one doesnt`t take it all too seriously.

A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019 from your Mr Midnight and Sir Winston!

Jingle Bells, animal style.

       The three of us want to wish all of you a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2019!

We especially wish to thank all of those kind people who have followed our blog over the past year and Mr Midnight, Sir Winston and myself really love to receive your comments!

Thank you so much for your support and patience with our topics.


As a little treat, Mr Midnight and Sir Winston thought it would be nice if they showed you a short Christmas video they managed to find while trawling the internet.

They both said that all animals want to wish human beings a very nice festive season, although Mr Midnight pointed out that most animals haven´t really got a clue as to what Christmas is all about. Animals don´t really need Christmas, he said, but it´s nice for animals to observe humans being a bit kinder and happier with one another.

See you all hopefully, next year!

What´s the purrrpose?

       I´ve asked you this question once before Sir W. but I´ve gone and forgotten again.

What do you think is the purrrpose of our existence on the planet?

       I think I´m here this time around to simply look after you Mr Midnight.

       Well, that´s quite nice because I thought exactly the same; that is, not that I came here to look after myself but to take care of you.

I believe we cats are quite good at taking care of things.

Let´s ask daddy what he thinks about his purrrpose in being here. Purrrhaps he´ll say that he´s here to look after us two. That would be quite nice wouldn´t it Sir Winston.

Daddy, what do you think is the purrrpose of your existence?

       I´m not quite sure Mr Midnight. Perhaps I´m here with which to gain further experience for some future life.

       That sounds quite plausible for my ears. Gaining experience is always a necessity if our souls are to progress.

       And you really believe that human beings will believe in such a notion Sir Winston?  I suspect that the majority of human beings living in our neck of the woods would appear to believe in something quite different.

        Quite true Mr Midnight, but there are some people dotted around the planet who share a similar concept to ours.

       Well, nobody really knows do they? If we did keep coming backwards and forwards then we all seem to forget so easily. I wonder why we cannot remember anything about our previous lives.

       Purrrhaps our minds are going. In my opinion, some people seem to have already lost their minds, but I´m only speaking as a cat and am therefore, a little biased towards human observation.

       There must be a purpose for our existence.

      Why?

Do we really have to have a purrrpose?

       I think we must have a purpose because otherwise, life wouldn´t make much sense to me.

       Purrrhaps a purrrpose for our existence is to simply have fun and to enjoy our experience.  That´s why I love feeding time. That cat milk daddy dished up the other night was super-dooper.

       Drinking nice milk is perhaps a reason to exist Mr Midnight but whatever the reason for our existence, we should all try and make the best of our short stay on this wonderful planet of ours.

       Okey dokey! I´m heading straight for the kitchen.  It looks like daddy´s going to make my life even more pleasant.

       Who mentioned anything about feeding time just yet?  I certainly didn´t.

       You know how easily Mr Midnight gets confused daddy.

       OK boys. I will make your existence even nicer.

       Goody, goody!

Where are the positive role models?

       I love sitting here on my favourite step in the garden. It´s such a pleasant day and the air angels smell really, really nice. What a wonderful kingdom I live in.

Oh, hello Sir Winston, nice to see that you are also up and about on this fine, warm day.

       Well, I am not really “up and about”; I am more like “lying down and about”.

       You do have a funny way with words Sir Winston, but it´s nice to see you still have your humour in place. Humour is the medicine of life.

In a way, you are a bit of a role model for me Sir Winston because no matter what the situation, you tend to enlighten me with your humour. You never seem to lose your humour.

As for me, I tend to get easily frustrated when things don´t go my way. Still, no cat´s purrrfect are they!

       Well, as you are aware, I do have many faults . . . . .

       . . . . . like when you “accidentally” drank all of my milk out of that saucer thing the other day?

       Sorry about that Mr Midnight, I couldn´t help myself and if it is of any help, I did feel rather bad about it afterwards.

       I should jolly well hope so!  Still, let bygones be bygones, eh? 🙂

       I`m glad you still like me Mr Mr Midnight, and admitting that I am sometimes a kind of positive role model for you pleases my heart.

Do you think there are any positive role models left in the human world Mr M. ?

       From my observations – I very much doubt it.

I suppose daddy could be seen as being a role model for me, but I don´t think that would count would it? It would be a little biased and making him my role model just because he strokes me and opens those wonderful tins everyday for me doesn´t count either I suppose.

Public figures who also, happen to be positive role models are very rare these days Sir Winston.

       I thought exactly the same Mr M.  It´s a shame isn´t it. I feel a society needs positive role models. The human world appears to be saturated with lies, fake stuff and greed. There must be a few people out there who are still interested in proper values.

       Oh, I´m sure there are Sir Winston, but they are just very difficult to find. Naturally, nobody is going to openly admit that they occasionally stoop as low as to lying, faking or being greedy, but that in my opinion, is where things start as to being a positive role model. Being truthful to oneself.

I suppose it´s only human (and catly) to occasionally do things we would sooner not but at least we should acknowledge the fact and not pretend that we are all little angels.

       Of course we are all little angels. The angels live in our souls.

       Yes, I know, we all have goodness within us. We should just let it shine more often.

       Well, I think that there are not many positive role models left simply because we all tend to want to live conveniently and are rather lazy.

       Perhaps the humans have observed us pussycats for far too long.

       That could be a contributing factor. But seriously Mr Midnight, I think that it is much easier for our present society to focus their attentions on lower energies and values than it is to look up, and focus, on positive role models. To orientate oneself on a positive role model may require hard work and initiative if one it to achieve the same high standards. It is much easier to attain low standards.

       I don´t like your patter but you could be correct in your assessment Sir W.

I suppose at the end of the day, the individual can only choose if they wish to positively form their character or not. As for me, I believe it is well worth while. Acquiring positive values and displaying them in public is indeed, a rarity, which makes one stand out in the crowd.

Thank you for being a positive soul for me to attain better standards Sir Winston.

       Please, please Mr Midnight, don´t make me blush!     🙂

Life is fun and games.

It had been raining for a very long time and the boys were now starting to get agitated.  They had to burn-up their energies somehow.

SW-Avatar       Catch me, catch me Mr Midnight – if you can!

———————————

Sir Winston darted upstairs into the attic but couldn´t  seem to shake Mr Midnight off.

MM-Avatar       I´ll get you, you little rascal, just see if I don´t.

———————————

A few empty storage boxes fell to the floor and carefully stacked items were strewn all over the place. Mr Midnight wasn´t going to give up because although Sir Winston was stronger than himself, he certainly wasn´t as nimble.

———————————

Sir Winston cried in full-swing,

SW-Avatar       Watch out!  You´ll have daddy´s things knocked over.

MM-Avatar       Excuses to slow me down Sir Winston.  You´re not getting away this time.

———————————

Sir Winston dived over the painting canvases in the far corner of the attic and craftily managed to get himself tucked behind the old cupboard which stood slightly ajar from the wall.

Mr Midnight skidded to a halt and frustratingly eyed Sir Winston.

MM-Avatar       And what are you going to do now Sir Winston.  You´re trapped.  How are you going to get past me?

SW-Avatar       I´m not, am I.  I´d say that this time, we both win.  If we don´t call it a draw then I will just have to wait it out. You know how patient I can be.

Your stomach will start grumbling in 10 minutes and then you´ll have to desert your post.

MM-Avatar       Dessert?  That´s a good idea. But I haven´t had my mains yet.  🙂

————————————

A slight draft from a half opened window made  a  piece of cord which was dangling from one of the shelves, suddenly sway in front of Mr Midnight’s watchful eyes.

He quickly lost interest in “guarding” Sir Winston’s hiding place and without hesitation, he sprang up and went over to investigate the mysterious object.

(It was in fact the ends of a string pulley attached to some window blinds which had been stored on the shelf but Mr Midnight was totally baffled by them).

Sir Winston peeped around the corner of his hiding place and curiously observed Mr Midnight’s antics.

MM-Avatar       Look Sir Winston –  the things moving from side to side. Let me get my paws on it.  It´s not easy – the silly things so light and it smells a little fusty.

I´ll hook my claws into it – if I can.  🙂

SW-Avatar       Oh go on Mr Midnight.  Let´s find out what it is, but please be careful. We don´t want any accidents.  Daddy will moan at us.

———————————

As just as Sir Winston had finished saying “…daddy will moan at us”, Mr Midnight’s claw got stuck in the cord and after having released his claw at the same time,   the whole lot came tumbling down.

As scared as hell, the lads ran in opposite directions.  The din was colossal.

———————————-

After having hid for what seemed like ages, they both slowly emerged from their hiding places with which to examine the damage.

MM-Avatar       My, my.  It could be worse I suppose.

SW-Avatar       What do you mean by “it could be worse”.  It looks a right mess.  What´s daddy going to say when he sees all this stuff lying around. I don´t even know what most of it is supposed to be.

MM-Avatar       Well, stop crying over spilt milk and help me put the stuff back on the shelf – although I´m not quite sure how we´re going to do that what with our little legs and paws.

Do you think daddy will notice if we just shove the stuff into that far corner?

SW-Avatar       We could try putting it all behind my hiding place behind the old cupboard.

MM-Avatar       Purrrhaps  daddy has still  got his  sense of humour.  I´ve observed that many humans seem to have lost their humour but daddy is rather comical sometimes.

SW-Avatar       You´re right on that one Mr Midnight. Grown-up humans always seem to act so seriously.  No wonder they´re often miserable half the time and in need of superficial entertainment.  They seem to have lost their playfullness.  Only human children still understand the necessity to playfully, go through life.

MM-Avatar       Well let´s try and clear up some of this mess and just hope that daddy´s humour will shine on through.

SW-Avatar       We could say that we did it on purrrpose with which to test his sense of humour.

MM-Avatar       Oh I´m sure that he´s game. I have faith in him.

Now come on SIr Winston. Stop chatting about and help me please.  I´m getting famished.  🙂
