This is the toy that I didn't swallow, and I love it 'cause it has a little bell that dings whenever I chase it:
And yesterday I spent the last morning of the old year curled up in the drapes in the sunshine. I know I'm lazy, but do I look fat?
It was SO HOT here in Melbourne yesterday, up to 38° C (that's over 100° F!) and at first I enjoyed laying in the sun, but my mid-afternoon I couldn't stand it any more, so I hid in a cool corner behind the TV set, like this:
My new friend Diamond lives in Adelaide where it was even hotter! (And if you'd like to see a picture of him on his balcony, follow the link under "My Favorite Blogs"). But in the early evening the clouds started to come in, and there was a stunning cloud that looked just like a crocodile:
And at the stroke of 9:00 pm it started raining and there was a thunderstorm and the temperature dropped to about 26° C (that's about 78° F), and that's what people around here call "a change" and I loved it! And about an hour later Daddy's friend Uncle Andrew showed up and they went with Uncle Kevin to a New Year's Eve Party with Asta and Pussy Galore II and their humans. And I didn't get invited (which is OK, since it was raining "cats and dogs" that night and I would have hated it), but I smelled my friend Asta's scent on Daddy's clothes when he came home, and the scent said "Happy New Year, Oscar!"
It's been three weeks now since Uncle Kevin had surgery on his stomach, and all that time he hasn't let me sit on his tummy, but tonight I'm insisting on it, so he put a green pillow on his tummy and stretched out on his back so I could climb on, like this:
And now he's mine for the rest of 2010!
