Catatouille – It’s Me Bertday
Me looking like someone slipped half a valium into my Sheba (I am much spicier zhan sis photo)
Mornin World it’s Avedon here,
I got Furless Mummy (Carla) in a vice-lock dis mornin and ave taken over her blog cause it’s me bertday today. Yep, I am one today and dat below is my bertday ‘crevette’ cake that FM and Furless Daddy made for me.
Well, it wasn’t really a vicelock, I just looked her straight in de eyes and cried as I do and she lets me do whatever I want including write dis blog.
I ave never seen ze crevette before
You ave probably heard FM talking about me as she iz always talking about me.. I was born in a Boulangerie (does it get any more folkloric zhan that) in ze same street where FM and Furless Daddy live in ze Marais, kind of like ‘Catatouille’ (yeah I like the gourmet stuff too and my plate changed as soon as I ave eaten).
FM and FD haven’t figured it out yet but I run ze show here. Those two should have checked ze ‘kitty guide’ before adopting me cause it would have said dat I like to go as high as possible, in all ze senses, tops of doors, bookcases and ze hierarchy.
Dats me in all the photos, de first day I woke up with FM and FD, on FM’s shoulder where I lurve to work, reading Le Canard (would prefer to eat one) and zleeping cause it’s busy around here.
Lemme tell you a little about myself.
I have many names other zhan Avedon, roadblock (cause you are not getting out of ze kitchen without given me some Sheba) Quality Control Officer (cause I gotta check everyting deez two do), Mr Busy (cause I love getting into boxes, the bath (not with water on me no siree) and electricity (I lurve electrical cords) and those pretty ribbons FM ties her photo boxes in (mmmmm).
I love ze feathers (on birds and in my pillows) and mice, mozzarella di bufala and soft feather donnas. I lurvvee when FM gets ready for work and I can get in her play boxes (lotz of stuff), I lurve plastic bags (I can hear ze rustle in me sleep) and I lurve ze pasta (deep down I feel I was an Italian cat in anozer life). I also lurve ze sheets especially when FM changes ze bed and I roll myzelf in zem and I also like to drink from ze tap much better than from that bowl on ze floor.
I lurve ze shoulders also and when FD isn’t around I like to sleep on FM’s shoulder (she lurvezit too). I lurve ze sun but zere is not much of zhat around here..
Dats me again in all ze photos.. Watching ze birdies I want to eat from ze kitchen, yawning after a big day on ze photoshop, on top of ze door stalking ze birdies and asleep on FM’s shoulder (she can’t move for hours when I go to zleep).
So back to my bertday.. when I woke zis evening after zleeeping for 10 hours FM and FD were singing Happy Caturday to You and zere on ze table (where i am never allowed to go) was a ‘crevette’ cake (prawns for you Auzzie catz) and presents (more fake mice).. Zey should have got me a real one. FM was crying (as she does) and FD and I downed a beer and cracked open ze crevettes..Second best day of me life (first one was when I caught a real mousie).
One last secret before I go, FM talks about her blogger friendz as much as she talks about me! She lurves youz all..
Happy Caturday (Bertday) to Me!!
Ze perfect Caturday with FD getting some zeds..
AVEDON (miaw miaw)
