Exciting Discoveries

Mum and Dad found a cool new shop for us in Sydney. It is called , and is in Bondi. Mum was excited to be there, because they had good quality cat products. She was used to pet shops in Townsville that only had most things for dogs, with a couple of mice for all the cats.
In preparing to help us become indoor cats, mum wanted to get us a good quality scratching post, and one that FatFui couldn't pull over with too much ease! When Fui stands up to scratch, he is very tall (mum and dad call him the toddler sometimes). Our tree is good, but the posts on it are a bit short for Fui to really stretch out. She scoured the internets for a retailer with the SmartCat post, and found it at Bowhouse.
There are two ladies who run Bowhouse, a cat lady and a woofie lady. Mum and Dad got talking to the cat lady about our incarceration, and when she heard about our stay in jail, she threw some of these bonito flakes in with the post! What a nice lady:)

Speaking of our incarceration... the man who was supposed to have vacated our new house on the 1st of June failed to do so. The new 'GET OUT!' date was today (the 9th), but mum is yet to hear whether that has happened. Then the repairmen have to come in a fix some things, as the man wasn't the most careful tenant. So we have been delayed another week. Fui and I are now booked to fly down on the 19th of June, instead of this week. What a drag! We are looking on the bright side though, and Fui and I are happy with Julie at the cat hotel. Hopefully, we will hear that everything is going to plan, and we will all be back together again quickly.

What an awesome LUXURY scratching post! That sounds like a great shop. Too bad Bondi is a bit far away for us...

We hope the tenant has indeed left today and you will have no further delays getting into your house!

Your Friends,

Yay for a new scratching post! We hope you stay in the slammer is not too much longer.

Like Mom always says... It is very good to have a plan, as long as you are prepared to change it.

OOOhh...that silly tenant...we are teleporting over to bunnykick him out of there! That scratcher looks amazing. I think I'm going to pout until I get one!!!

Daisy said...

That looks a lot like my Purrfect post, only much bigger! I think you will like that scratcher a lot.

I hope that man will get out of YOUR house soon!

Bah.. We hope the slow guy finally got out of YOUR house! If not please let me know, I'm happy to go down and sneeze at him to speed up the process.

We have an Ultimate scratching post too. We love it, because it's tall enough for us to really stretch out. We're so sorry that your incarceration keeps getting extended, but it sounds like Julie is taking great care of you two.
