3. I’m dreaming of _________.

4. I wouldn’t touch _________ with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.

Marie's Answers
1. I refuse to shop almost anywhere. I hate shopping. The crowds, the noise, the smells, the harsh lighting. Shopping makes me anxious and I do most of it online. 
2. A store I wouldn’t mind being trapped in overnight is a bookstore.
3. I’m dreaming of a white Christmas.
4. I wouldn’t touch a spider with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole. I am terrified of them.

Athena's Answers
1. I refuse to shop in almost anywhere. I'm a cat. I don't do shopping.
2. A store I wouldn't mind being trapped in overnight is a bookstore with Mum. I can sleep by her side while she reads all the books she can!
3. I'm dreaming of my next treat.
4. I wouldn't touch a banana with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole. They are stinkily revolting. Funny thing is, Mum feels the same.

And now for a Sunday Selfie. This week I'm joined by my mum. She has a new haircut. She cut it all by herself by following youtube videos on how to cut hair. Granny helped a bit. 

It's been a busy and stressful day. First, we had visitors and after they left Mum and I had a nap and when we awoke we found the downstairs toilet flooded. Mum panicked, called a plumber, who charged a hell of a lot of money for an emergency call out who then said the problem was with a mains drain and so now we have to wait until tomorrow for someone to come and sort it out. 

We're not blaming our visitors by the way as Mum had noticed that something wasn't quite right with the drains for a while now.

Mum can't have her relaxing bath because of the blocked drain and she's grumpy. I could offer to wash her, but she's having none of it. 

Really, humans, it's so simple! Just follow your cat... Mum just told me that cats don't smell like humans do when they don't wash. Oh, well, I shall have to take care of Mum tonight as she's panicky and anxious. She says she will try and relax by watching The X Factor Final and as she won't be able to sleep she'll wait until after midnight when the new episode of Outlander starts streaming on Amazon Prime UK.

Beautiful selfies. I am sorry about the toilet trouble, that is awful.
Thank you both for participating in the fill-ins, I always enjoy your answers. A bookstore would be a nice place to be trapped in. Only one cat I have had, KaChoo, loved bananas. Everyone else sqints like it is a lemon. I hope your week improves. XO

Oh no, that is not good news. When we have had issues with the palace plumbing, and when we had that drought, Mrs H had a flannel bath, as she calls it, which is almost like a cat bath. Just a shame there aren't any sun puddles to help either... though Mrs H says sun puddles don't actually clean, but are great to dry in, MOL

I love your selfies... but what a bummer about the plumbing issue.

Thank you both for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins, Athena and Marie! Marie, I think we have a lot in common, because I relate 100% to all of your answers. And, Athena, the kitties here agree with all of your fill-ins. Toby especially agrees about those bananas, because he thinks they're yuck! Purrs!

Plumbing problems are the worst! I happen to love bananas, and a real treat for me is a banana and peanut-butter sandwich! But every cat I know HATES bananas.
