Monika is no longer Frau Meek

I cooked my Penne Salcicce last night using a recipe I invented myself and Cate said it was the best pasta meal she had ever had. High praise indeed. I hope I can remember what I put in it when I make it next time.

Monika – who has up until recently been one of the meekest cats on the planet – has suddenly become an explorer. Every night when we are just about to go to bed she sits at the front door and meows (albeit silently) to be let out.

We have no idea why – but we let her out and she has a look around – occasionally goes down a flight or two of stairs – sharpens her claws on the neighbours door mat – and wanders back inside.

Yesterday – for the first time ever – she climbed into the Christmas tree. WTF?  This is most uncharacteristic and we cannot fathom what is making her suddenly so adventurous.

Of course having got half way up the tree she could not work out how to get out so I had to rescue her. But I managed to get a photo before I did so. 


  1. Hmm. Methinks, there's a bit of a QEII look of "We are not amused".

  2. She looks like she is on a mission and not to be trifled with.

  3. lucky it wasnt fatty boomba or the tree wouldve falllen over

  4. Annie: She as not happy at the time

    fmcgmccllc: She is a cat with great purpose

    lenny: So cruel!
