One of the best things about having a beautiful puppykins is that you can take him with you when you go out. Harry loves travelling in the car as he knows that there will always be people to greet him and play with him at the other end (even if it happens to be a visit to the vet!)

Last weekend was no exception - we went to visit Mr ex-Kitty in his apartment in the city. Although the former Mr Kitty and I are no longer going out we are still good friends (or at least I like to think so) - in addition I had things that needed to be dropped off to him so Harry and I went visiting. Mr ex-Kitty also still adores Harry Puppy so any excuse to see him will do.

Mr ex-Kitty happens to live right near the Flagstaff Gardens so Harry got a chance to wander around and meet out city dwelling doggies before enjoying remnants of our bratwurst brunch at the Victoria Market. I am quite impressed that Mr ex-Kitty has learnt not only to cook, clean and do household related things for himself but he now also shops at the market!

The Cat Palace revisited - not just for cats!

I posted a while back about the kitty mansion that I bought miss holly kitty last year. Well it turns out she's not the only one who has taken a liking to it. I have a theory that harry puppy actually thinks that he's a cat - he perches on the back of the couch like one, eats leftover cat food and now has taken to climbing the cat tree! (I think it has more to do with the fact that he thinks he can then be closer and therefore more annoying to Holly than him actually enjoying being off the floor!)

During Winter Holly spends most of her day either perched on the topmost platform (especially when the heater is on because the hot air tends to pocket around that corner of the living room) or curled up in the little hammock - I'm actually surprised that she still manages to squash her amply proportioned kitty frame into it but she fits in somehow - LOL!

The New Dining Table

I have been in search of the perfect dining set for over 3 years now - the problem was that it had to 'go' with the rest of the modern furniture in my house and yet be small enough to fit into my teeny tiny lounge/dining area. Anyway a few months ago I found it - at Myer of all places and it was exactly what I was wanting - alas it wasn't on sale so I decided to leave it and think it over. Then a few weeks later they had a spend and save promotion which included furniture and yay I ended up getting the whole set at 33% off the original price!

Unfortunately when it was delivered no one bothered telling me that there was 'some assembly involved' - I ended up spending one entire afternoon becoming very well aquainted with the allen key and screwdriver in putting it all together! Here are some before and after photos - and as you can see Miss Holly Kitty has taken delight in perching her furry bottom on the table!

Here is a little catch up from Easter - the potential new Mr Kitty delivered a lovely surprise Easter basket to me filled with all kinds of goodies. Look at Miss Holly Kitty's expression! hehehe!
