They turned 5 today! Still as crazy and hilarious as ever. Myf and Charles forever!

United States of Charlie

I think I’ve finally sussed out my cat Charlie’s behaviour. Myf is so easy and uncomplicated. But Charlie, well he’s always been a bit scatty and neurotic but also super sooky. He seems to have multiple personalities and switches between them as he moves from room to room about the house. The room that really seems to irk him and where he can’t seem to relax is our lounge room. It’s too vast and unsettling except for wintertime when we have a crackling fire roaring and the three little guys go into comas, lying in front of it all day.

The hallway is no-man’s land where chasing games happen and there’s normally a shoe kicking about he sidles up to and sits with. He’s most relaxed in my room tucked up on the doona and in the bathroom where he’s got a fav floor rug he likes to sit on. I told you he was odd. I should have called him Tara.

As I’m not home for most of the week, the moment I arrive back is a circus of attention seeking antics. They have all started mimicking each other’s behaviour, knowing which gets the best reaction. Myf now does Charlie style silly rolls at your feet and careens about the house dragging string along while performing tricks. Charlie now launches himself at us, attempting to land on ones shoulder like Myf does with great ease. Charlie is over 5kgs and never quite makes the whole leap. Even Coco, our elderly cat has taken to this trick as well and is surprisingly agile. I was woken the other night around 3am to the sound of ripping paper. Charlie was ripping and tearing at the letters on my “Welcome Home Kate” sign my sister made me that I have stuck on the wall. Punishment for leaving them all week maybe? It seems I’m not so welcome :)
