A brief introduction to a cat who runs the household.

Smooch, Who Thinks He is Famous

Let me introduce you to Smooch the Cat. Smooch is the little furry friend you see in my profile picture and as far as he is concerned he is famous. You see, he developed a name for himself and attracted many fans when I was writing for Bubblews on a regular basis.
Now he is missing the limelight, all the attention he once received, and he's nudging me as if to say, come on Mum, introduce me to your new friends.

Getting Older, but Still Active

In his younger days Smooch was quite an active fellow, but now he's becoming an older cat he's not quite as fast as he once was - don't tell him I said that! He can, however, still get himself up and over six foot fences when the need presents itself.
He still thinks of himself as a bit of a hunter, bringing home the occasional dead livestock prize to present to us with pride.
But the local birds are no longer as afraid of him as they once were.

Sleeps by Day and Hunts by Night

These days you're most likely to find Smooch sleeping the day away. During winter he finds a spot indoors, either on his Dad's knee, close by to one of us, or in a spot in the sun.
During the summer months he is never to be seen, because usually he is sleeping in the neighbour's garden on the other side of the fence.
Most nights Smooch disappears into the darkness to try and keep in shape and maintain his prowling and hunting skills. The only evidence of him is the occasional cat fight, when he feels the need to protect his territory from invading cats of whom he doesn't approve.

Look Forward to Further Appearances

Smooch will be making further appearances here from time to time, either when he does something that warrants being shared with the world, or simply when he feels he is being neglected.
He loves a bit of attention, so do drop by to say hi.

They tend to ignore him these days Mark, they know he doesn't have the speed he used to have.

Although not a cat lover, I'll say Hi to him as and when he shows up.
