Irrational fears.

I was browsing the internet and came across this very interesting site about phobias.
It has a complete alphabetical list of descriptions of different fears and the correct name for the phobia. Some amusing phobias include:

1: fear of Peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth- Arachibutyrophobia.

2: fear of being Tickled by feathers or feathers- Pteronophobia.

3: fear of Washing- Ablutophobia. I think my Oscar has this one!

4: fear of Knees- Genuphobia.

However, I do hope that nobody who reads my site has Aclurophobia, also known as Ailurophobia, Elurophobia, Felinophobia, Galeophobia, or Gatophobia. Fear of cats.

Please have a look at the site and let me know A what you think and B which phobia you have.

the scene

When I filled in Oscar’s quiz a while ago I said that one of the places I would most like to visit is Blackpool because apparently it has a good gay scene. Well, I understand that a shy cat called Moomin who lives in Blackpool looked at my blog last week but was nervous about putting a comment.

Well, I’d just like to say hello to Moomin and his two sisters Pip and Jen, I think pip is a girl anyway)! I think that Moomin and I may have some things in common. We both have two sisters, he lives in Blackpool and I want to visit Blackpool, but I don’t know if he is gay like me! Maybe he can become my pen pal? I hope so.

I also wanted to say another hello to Biggles who put a nice comment on my site last week. The answer to your question about whether I am also called gay, as in a name, is yes. It was difficult for me to understand about gayness when I was little like you, but as you get older and more worldly wise, you will understand. My friend Monty from London is also a baby and I don’t think he understands about gay cats either! Not sure about Leo and Shadow from Canada though, maybe they don’t have cats of different sexualities in Canada!

Psycho analysis.

I have been wondering recently what mine and my sisters’ behaviour and characteristics say about us and how these are interpreted by others. I have therefore decided to give a little synopsis of my ponderings for the interest of those of you who read my blog. Please feel free to add any thoughts or comments.

Lola is a funny one, she is symmetrical and beautiful and is always extremely well groomed. She is constantly washing herself and even went as far once as to wash her leg so much that she grew a bald patch. Some of the research I have been undertaking into this behaviour suggests that Lola could be described as having Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, more commonly known as OCD. Lola will wash when she is nervous , or if anybody has touched a certain part of her.

Now Pixie is odd, she is almost always so full of energy, racing around everywhere, leaping and charging through the cat flap and jus generally being hyper. Then, suddenly, when she becomes tired she will jus flop and stretch herself out like a flat pancake snake and go to sleep. I have been looking at what her symptoms could indicate by surfing the internet. The nearest I can come up with is Bipolar disorder, more commonly known as manic depression but that isn’t quite right. She definitely has the mania part, but the depression element is simply not there, she is such a happy little thing. Maybe then she is just polar? Another condition which could fit her characteristics is attention deficit hyperactive disorder, ADHD. This means that the individual, or in this case the cat is always hyperactive with loads of energy, but has a very short attention span. Do you think this describes Pixie?

Me: Paddy:

I’m not too sure how to describe myself, other than a little odd. The fact that I only like to sit on the spots on the rug could mean that I am a little asbergers, but I’m not too sure. I also have particular places I need to sit, such as on the back of the armchair, and I need to sleep at the bottom right hand side of mummy’s bed. I also determine whether it is going to be a good or a bad day by which spot on the rug I sit on.

I will have a think about my Oscar, Molly and Dennace and do a little more research into behavioural traits and get back to you about what I think they may have.

My Oscar has written about the things which annoy him the most. He has persuaded me to do the same, so here they are.

1: Having to share mummy's attention with five other cats.

2: the fact that Pixie is always fed first.

3: not being able to visit the vet to have my temperature taken every week, most unfair.

4: the rain.

5: being told off for climbing on the work surfaces.

6: people not understanding that I like to sulk occasionaly.

7: being removed from under the bed in the orange bedroom, one of my favourite places.

8: being combed.

9: not seeing my Oscar.

10: having to share my bed with pixie Lola and mummy.

brotherly love

Today I am very happy. My Oscar bought me a present to show that he does love me after all! I just got a little confused between the brotherly love which my Oscar and I share and the valentines love which he shares with Lola. I didn’t understand that there are different types of love, but mummy has explained this to me.

My Oscar and I used to live together in Yuckyfield you see! We used to play together all the time and we shared a home at the cattery. I think that brotherly love is better than valentines love as you have all the fun and naughtiness without any of the emotional histrionics!

Here is a picture of my Oscar.

Paddy is sad

Yesterday was St Valentines day, the day when I thought at last my Oscar and I would be able to share our true feelings for each other. Alas, it was not to be! My beloved Oscar has a girlfriend! He loves my sister Lola! It is not fair, my love remains unrequited……..My heart is broken!

The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful!

In the words of one of my favourite songs, “let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!” It is so cold up here that at night I have to creep under the duvet when mummy is asleep to try to keep warm. I don’t think she minds though as she says I have a warm furry coat!

There is a lot of snow at the moment and it makes the ground very wet and cold under paw! This is a little difficult to cope with when I am going outside all the time since the litter tray has been removed. Pixie loves the snow though, the first time she has seen it! She is manic, running and prancing around like the kitten that she is….not at all dignified like me! I hope the snow goes away soon.

on the spot

I hope you like the picture above. This is the new rug my mummy has bought for the decorated sitting room. I like to sit on the rug, but I will only ever sit on the spots! As you can see, here are four spots. I don't feel safe anywhere else on the rug! Even if mummy picks me up and puts me in the middle of the rug I will always gravitate to one of the spots!

Friday, 2 February 2007


Remember I said that pixie, Lola and I were carted off to Oscar’s house because mummy was painting? Well, when we came back, just over a week, nearly two weeks ago, the house was in such upheaval I could hardly stand it! My room, well, the orange room where I like to lie on the bed by the radiator was completely full of stuff! Everything had been removed from the sitting room and put in there. I could hardly get in and I was most upset that I couldn’t get under that bed that I like!

Well, a man came on Wednesday and made a lot of noise, cutting drilling hammering etc, he he was putting this new floor down. It’s very light in colour, but extremely slippery, li,like ice. I have to be very careful when I walk on it, picking my paws up very high so I don’t slip over! It smells funny too, all new paintlike and clean! Mummy has put a big rug down now, so that when I scratch the mat when she comes in, I can’t pick it up because it is too heavy. It is all blue with big spots. If I lie on one of the spots it is bigger than me!

Mummy has also taken our toilet away! She put the tray outside on Sunday and hasn’t brought it back in! She has just left the flap open all the time, hasn’t locked it once, so we can come and go as we please! I’ve never known such freedom! Lola loves it and pixiechu is mad with it. I still like to sleep inside at night though as it is a bit cold!

I have added some links to some sites of interest. Please look at the bottom of the page.
