The Black Hole Of Collars

First of all I would like to say a big thank you to the visitors of my blog from the following countries:
Cyprus, Canada, Germany, Malta, Pakistan, Russia, United Kingdom and USA.
Thank you for reading my blog, it makes me purry happy to see visitors from all different parts of the world.
Cyprus has large UK and Russian communities in Cyprus.

You are probably wondering why this blog post is titled the Black Hole Of Collars, let me explain; last week Gingy and I both lost our collars on the same day. It is not the first time for me or the second or the third. Scratchy and I have lost more collars this year than the other cats put together.

Where do all these collars go? Is there a thief thats steals them while we are sleeping?
I try to tell my humans that I have not got a clue where they go to, but I do not think they believe me.

My conclusion on this matter is that there must be a black hole somewhere, sucking up collars, hence calling it the Black Hole of Collars. I have heard people talk about a black hole when they lose one of their socks.
What do you think? If you have an answer to this universal mystery please let me know in my comments box.

So what else has been happening lately. Scratchy, as usual has been fighting again and getting scratched. He came come two days ago looking very dirty. I think he had spent the night sleeping under a car, not a good thing to do. As a reminder to drivers, if you park your car on the street ensure there is no cat sleeping under it before you drive off. A squashed cat is not a pleasant sight and I have seen too many squashed cats in my time.

Gingy, Sooty and Blackie have been very busy chasing lizards. Now the weather is getting a little warmer there are plenty to be found. Of course my number one pass time is still bird watching. I am also quite fond of eating, although a cat has to watch her waistline I don’t want to end up looking like Garfield!

Sooty and his "strange habit."
I am still spending my time hanging out with Tabby. The other cats are not fond of her and try to chase her away. Sooty has a particular loathing of her, I can’t understand him sometimes. Sooty has also got a very peculiar habit at the moment. He keeps sitting in the cat litter box! Very strange cat.

I am happy that spring is just around the corner. More birds around and more mice to chase, and plenty of flowers and grass in the fields to hide behind. Grass can make a good hiding place when you are on a hunting trip. The only drawback is the ticks hiding in the. The cheeky beggars jump on you and stick to you with a grip of iron. The mere thought of ticks makes me itch.

I will have to leave you now, I need to tell my humans which new cat collar I prefer, one with diamonds would be nice. They will probably ignore me though and buy one I didn’t prefer. Well a cat can try! Bye.
