ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ


Forgot to tell you that we had another unexpected pregnancy here at Le Chateau. I know, I know before all you cat lovers descend on me I admit, completely irresponsible, shouldn't be in charge of a gerbil/goldfish etc etc. There you go, we learn by our mistakes.

Anyway it's a baking hot afternoon down here in the Languedoc. The guests are sleeping after deciding they want to stay longer, the cats and kittens are snoozing. The only mug that's wide awake feeling she has to keep working despite clearly being the only one with open eyes in this tranquil village it would seem is moi. Why is that do you suppose ? was I conditioned at birth to constant slavery or is it just the territory of Wife and Mother ? Answers on a postcard please !!

Meanwhile the zzzzzzz's emitting from the contented slumbers here is ridiculous, apart from these you could hear a pin drop. The harvester has stopped rumbling up and down the plump vines in the distance and all you can hear is the faint rustle of the enormous lime tree outside.

Well you know what they say ?

If you can't beat them, join them !!

Go and get your feet up girl! Loved the kittys. What's wrong with the occasional unexpected pregnancy? Where would we be without them?

They look like that yling and ylang symbol - have I got that right or is it ying and yang, bing and bang, ping and pang - whatever.
Veeeery sweet.

Cat siesta...how sweet. I can hear the silence you've described - now if you just sit down for a minute, rest your eyes, and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Very very cute - resisiting hard though. Yes put your feet up and if you can't give yourself permsission - tell yourself it is so that you can work harder . . . that usually does the trick.

LittleBrownDog said...

Yin & Yang cats! they look so soft and cuddle-able - not disapproving at all - someone's got to keep the world in kittens.

Fleas anonymous, at Le Chateau,? I think not !!

Crystal Jigsaw said...

A cute picture indeed!!
I defintely once we adapt the term wife and mother, it's inevitable to be labelled "slave" !! In a nice way, of course.

Un Peu Loufoque said...

oh so sweet perhaps you would like your little ones to come and meet out little ones we could hold kitten socialization classes!! Fleas?!! What a cheek anon far to well bred for puce in these parts dear!!

Grouse said...

I'm sure no well-bred kittens of Le Chateau's would have anything so commonplace as fleas.......the very idea, Anonymous! We dont know where YOU are commenting from but there is a code!

And I am sure they will charm the visitors....

Do sit in the shade with something long and cool, my dear...preferably fit and tanned too........

Sweet little kitties. The napping sounds idyllic!

Pondside said...

Too, too cute!
It sounds like you are working much too hard - when does the mistress of the chateau get to take a break?

Mary said...

Oh I want the kittens but......

CAMILLA said...

Ooooh so sweet!! I want them, one Black & one White please. Sadly it cannot be, JRT does not like Cats, she thinks she is Top Dog.!!

Our Dear Pondside, had me wanting a Dollshouse for me to admire, and to fuss with, no sadly not The Chateau Sally, the one which I had as a child. Shall give Santa my request this year.

Don't be too harsh on yourself. Those kittens are beautiful and as a cat lover, I cannot help be all mushy over those 2 adorable kittens.
