Wordless Wednesday Turns into a Wordy One

Happy Wednesday! 

As you can see from the two photos below, Mum had to go and wake me up from my nap for a kissing selfie. She gets needy like this when she's under a lot of strain. I love her to bits but how would she like it if I woke her up constantly with my demands?

Oh yeah, I do 😻

But that's beside the point as I'm a cat.

The pics are a bit blurry because Mum's hand shook as she was trying to take the two "selfies" so she had to tart them up a bit with filters before I agreed to post them.

FYI, I do give my mum lots of love and healing purrs and kisses when she needs them, and that's been rather often lately, what with all the pressure of trying to sell the house. It seems we have encountered a buyer from hell. Can't say much more than that of course, and we can't name any names, but we are almost there, or almost not. Confused? Well, how do you think we feel?

We found a lovely house in a nice spot near some trees because Mum needs trees nearby and one of the reasons she wants to move is that there are hardly any trees left in the hellhole where we currently live. This hellhole was apparently a beautiful suburban part of North London back in the day when Granny moved here in the late 1960s.

So, a nice house, in a nice spot outside London and we've been waiting to move there. But of course, there have been delays and more delays with the buyer of our property due to stuff a cat will never be able to understand (human minds and methods are insane!)

Mum needs to stay sane like me so I'm doing my bit to help every day.

Like cheering her up last night with my crazy antics. The usual, like scooting across the room at lightning speed and skidding on packing paper, ending up at Mum's feet. I also do a fine meerkat impression, which Mum really needs to film so she can show everyone. She has to film the skidding too. Shame that I do these things on the spur of the moment and so she is never quite prepared. Imagine if she did capture it all on film? It could go viral, making me a star and that in turn would earn us some money so we could just buy a house and move to wherever we want without the need for shaky, indecisive buyers.

It's good that your mum has you to take care of her, Athena. I hope all those troubles with the buyer get straightened out soon so you can move to a better place! :)

Things that happen out of one's control can make humans go crazy, especially real estate stuff! Chili Bruce makes like meerkat too; will endeavor to capture it; it makes us giggle!

Take good care of each other. Hopefully the house sale proceeds without too many delays.
