I've been doing some work on the flowerbeds. The last few days I've found rose prunings, carefully placed next to my bed.

This is around the time when DDDH and I adopted Little Monsieur, so maybe a sort of mother's day tribute?

Oh Mantra, that's adorable. I love Little Monsieur. Is Mcat behaving better? He was being a bit rufty tufty wasn't he?

MCat's still a bit grumpy, he's had a few visits to the vet close together, including a dental.

I got another rose clipping tonight. Complete with buds. I think the adorable little Monsieur is chewing them off, and bringing them in. Bloody adorable little bloke.

How can anyone dislike cats?

I think it's quite charming that a cat should give you a gift. smile All of my boys - while clearly loving me dearly and being very relaxed and trusting with me - have seemed to believe that their presence in my life was quite enough to be going on with, Thank You. grin

That is adorable.

DH got really drunk on Saturday night, I put him to bed whilst getting him water. Came back to find him stroking his face with my make up brush while saying "the cats brought me a present, I am so honoured, they love me" over and over.

I may have got a video grin

Ah, that's lovely. Maybe the furry tyrants were giving him a make-over, to make him feel fabulous. or ridiculous grin

Mine just chew my make-up brushes.

I bet you've been presented with a mouse or two eh, Cozie?

This reminds me of one of the first threads I read about somebody's cat presenting them with a whole ham joint, meant for somebody's Boxing Day lunch.

Actually, my cats have always tended to keep their prey to themselves. I guess they think I can look after my own interests in that department. grin

One of ours brought us a freshly cooked, still hot chicken fillet once. Not as charming as flowers, she's obviously a more practical individual.

RubbishMantra Mon 25-Jul-16 13:30:54

Did you let her eat it? I think I would have had to allow that. Like a sort of take-away, yet without the expense.

Bit inconsiderate that she forgot the salad and flat bread though...

NarcyCow Tue 26-Jul-16 20:41:14

Yup. It wasn't as if we were going to - we a) didn't know where it had been and b)did know it had been in the cat's mouth!

She's not keen on salad, and only eats bread for the butter. The other one's better with veg, she's been known to trot through the sitting room carrying a floret of broccoli.

RubbishMantra Wed 27-Jul-16 02:32:39

A floret of broccoli - almost flowers?

NarcyCow Wed 27-Jul-16 15:43:53

She didn't give it to anyone though, it was for personal comsumption.

That's nicer than the collection of spiders and bees Puccini leaves on my kitchen chair hmm

RubbishMantra Wed 27-Jul-16 20:53:04

I came home to a (headless) rose placed half way up the stairs. Maybe he's threatening me, like the Mafia horse head, except getting it a bit wrong?

On second thoughts, that cat could never threaten anyone. He's like a little sun-beam. I get sticks and lumps of whatever he's fished out the drain sometimes.

Dame, I often find dead crispy bees and contracted spiders in the kitchen. One of the spiders was stuck to the front door, so he must have eaten the squishy bit, and somehow stuck what was left to the door.

Not looking forward to daddy-long-legs season...
