Catching Up and Crying Cricket Cat

I really need to catch up on my blogging, way behind! Promise to write an update soon.
This Friday I have to work a new schedule, 12:00PM to 4:00PM, can we say YUCK!
But probably makes for a good opportunity to write a long blog post about our trip south to Hikkaduwa.

It has been getting much hotter here, I thought it was my imagination but the sun has just beating down lately.

Did I mention our older cat, "Cricket" has a habit of crying when we go to sleep, or just sometimes in the middle of the night? I'm no cat whisperer but it doesn't sound like she's in pain, it sounds like she is trying to wake us up and feed her. I have darted out of the bedroom a couple of times only to find her sitting in the living room looking at me, or sometimes running under the dining room table. I don't think there has been a single night she hasn't done this! Wait, one night. I sprinkled some cat nip on her scratch toys and that seemed to have kept her quiet all night.

My white cat does that thing too. Sits on the balcony and sings to himself. He looks rather embarrassed if I catch him. I wondered whether it was some kind of mating thing but he was fixed when he was quite young and he doesn't act crazy as male cats sometimes do. Maybe it is self-expression, I don't know.
