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.

5 Jan22 Neurmal hides herself in one of her little cubby holes.  I think she's checking to see if anyone is watching. #catsofinstagram #playinghideandseek
This is my new computer that I hope will help me upload photos more often - and I'm hoping it will help solve neck issues with straining to see the the larger screen I had before now.  #mbp #newcomputer #2022pad
11Feb22  Noble and Neurmal just hanging out.  This is the first time I've seen Noble on the back of the couch since he became a tripod kitty.  He's getting a lot more confident at trying new things and keeping his balance.  He's a great role model!  #2022pad #catsofinstagram  #tripodkitty #threeleggedcatsofinstagram #latergram
02Feb22  This big boy is Monty.  He belongs to my friend Shaun.  In the past when I've visited, Monty has ignored me and wasn't impressed with me if I tried to pay any attention to him at all.  But today he decided he loved me and came up, rubbed his face on my hand and practically insisted that I give him long pets.  So I did.  And here he is snoozing away.  It really made my day!  #sleepingkitty #2022pad #catsofinstagram #latergram
7Jan22  Yes!  An American Christmas card!  This was from my son and daughter in love in Texas. #2022pad #belatedxmascard #lovefromafar
17Jan22  And here it is all built and ready for a ride - my new, much better fitting recumbent bike.  If you know me and have an interest in my old recumbent bike get a hold of me.  My preference is for a friend to have it to use.  If I don't get any takers then I'll put it up for sale. #2022pad #recumbentbike #bike #homegymlife #keepmoving
