Heh, out grew the fence

Noble, my kitty for the last six months, is one big kitty. It’s amazing how much he’s grown over the last several months. He’s now 5 kilos of 100% cat. And it’s going to be one very COLD winter because his winter coat is amazing. Well, tonight he got distracted chasing a cat off the carport roof and ended up on the other side of the fence. The same fence I’m sure he came under when he first showed up at my patio door. Lucky for him (and very lucky for me) my neighbours on that side are lovely people and they let me come through their side gate to come get him. He was so pitiful looking, trying to figure out how to fit in the space under the fence that he is way way too big for now. So I gathered him up, thanking my stars to have grown up in a cat family so I know how to hold him without getting scratched, had a chat with the neighbours, then carried him home.

He’s had a range of ’emotions’ since his big scare. He seemed embarrassed and aloof, then needy and now he’s settled down for a well deserved nap. I just hope if he’s going to wander on that side of the fence that he learn to jump it, but it’s a tall fence and they don’t have anything on their side for a cat to use to get half way to the top (wise on their part, I reckon). I think we’ll have to do similar, except we have a water tank that of course can’t be moved.

Today I did a total of 65 minutes on the treadmill. I didn’t do it all at once though. I broke it up into morning, after lunch and after tea. The extra 5 minutes were because I was trying to get the total kilometres to a full 3, since I was so close after the hour. I managed to do about 15 seconds with a speed of 5.1 k/hr — my regular speed is between 3 and 3.5. I try to do 30 second bursts at both 4.0 and 4.5, and then push for 15 seconds a bit faster. Just to push that little bit extra of myself.

15Oct20  Roses!  I took photos of the rose bushes on Sunday and no roses were present but today!  I have roses blooming.  These bushes were cut all the way back and here they are a month later back to life again. Such a nice surprise!  #roses #bloomingroses #mygardenlives
02Oct20  @kerstinlacross on Twitter asked people to show their favourite mugs.  This is one of mine.  The art is by Kerstin.  Next to it on the left is my ‘Sphere of Rod, which holds some of his ashes blown into the glass.  #latergram #favouritemug #favoritemug #mug #penholder #ashart #ashmemorial
15Sep20 Noble takes time to smell the Wisteria.  I’m very grateful some of the wisteria has come back, and especially in this specific location on the fence. It and it’s twisting vines will provide support for the fence right where it is needed the most.  I suspect Rod and my neighbour’s late husband Jim have worked this little miracle so the fence won’t need to be replaced for another few years. #2020pad #fence #wisteria #lookingoutforus #lovefindsaway #catsofinstagram #cf20 #gnarled
19Sep20  When it comes to gnarled, I think this shed covering wins the day.  When it was covered in wisteria it was quite beautiful.  Now…  It’s been chainsawed as best as possible and amazingly, some wisteria still bloomed on it.  #cf20 #gnarled
11Oct20  The coolest card ever.  This is handmade, hand cut.  It was also a good thing to try my camera on to see if it could handle the depth and shadows for this card.. It passed!  #jacarandatree #jacarandacard #jacaranda
