Stop Pulling My Chain !

Whatever I do, Samantha loves to help me.  Such as ……








Okay.  Out of my way cats !
























Every evening is the same.  Samantha helps me with the chains.  There is no way that a woman will enter my bedroom when Coo Coo acts like a town crier every half an hour and China Cat just is.  Added to them are my two cats constantly demanding my attention.  I reckon the only woman who would dare enter my bedroom is someone who is Coo Coo or maybe a China Cat !


Are you Coo Coo ?

  1. Ralph i’m glad to see you escaped Samantha’s retaliation
    for a “Claw-less’ post on Valentine’s Day!
    Maybe chewing on the chains is a bit of a payback mischief.
    You are Lucky to get away with just that…
    You know…100 years back I had several coo coo clocks
    and cats until recent times when forced to give them up
    due to health restrictive circumstances and life style changes,
    so I believe back then …100 years back, I could have been
    a woman willing to enter your bedroom and enjoy the meows.
    I better stop here before my old sweetheart discovers
    my momentary …geriatric dalliances, LOL! 

    • Yes, you could be right about payback for the Valentine’s Day post Sonata.
      Sorry that you had to give up cats and coo coo clocks. The one in this post I found in a yard sale, it looked broken, chains in knots, for €5 ($5, £4.50). There was actually nothing much wrong and has been working for the 3 years I’ve been in this apartment.
      Heehee. Loved the ending to your comment.
      I wish you well my friend. Ralph xox ❤

  2. lol. That is an odd thing for your cat to do Lynne ! 😀 Samantha will scratch and scratch at a wardrobe door. If I just ask her what is she doing she will come running to me. If I open the door, she will look in, turn around and go and lie down in her basket. Yes, cats are weird ! Ralph xox ❤

  3. That chain has to be hard on Samantha’s teeth. Maybe she has a thing for the Coo Coo. You never can tell with a cat.

    • I am really pleased that this post made you laugh Diana. The clock is firmly mounted near the ceiling as the chain is really long and has taken Samantha’s onslaughts very well 😀 Ralph xox ❤

  5. I love cuckoo birds, Ralph. They are very loud, though, the real ones. The clock might be more pleasant. ❤ ❤

    • Yes, I hear the real cuckoo here in southern Spain sometimes Cookie. Coo Coo does have its moments when it sounds a bit weird. Probably its biological clock gone wonky 😉 Ralph xox ❤

  9. I am definitely coo coo. 😉 And Samantha, some antiques are very valuable, but you’d better grab the oil can for that rust, I don’t think your daddy’s sell by date is expired, he’s seasoned and as with fine wine is only getting better and better. ❤ ❤ Love and hugs.

  11. I’ve been accused of being a little coo coo, but don’t you believe it, MFR. I’m as sane as the next person, except when it comes to loving you. Then I’m insanely in love. xxxooo. 🙂 Awww, MFR, I’m just pulling YOUR chain. I’m not insanely in love. I’m just in love with MFR.

  12. LOL! In the first pics, I thought the chain was a string of pearls. As I have not been able to find my string of pearls, I jumped to the conclusion that Jeep & Johnny offed with them & shipped them to Samantha and Sonic in Spain.
    Now, is that coo coo or what? I mean Even if Jeep stood on Johnny’s back, they’d never reach the counter at the post office!
    What was I thinking?
    Funny post, dear Ralph! _Resa xoxo ❤ #<

    • Hi dear Resa 😀
      After much sifting through the evidence. Jeep & Johnny are not to blame for the loss of your pearls. My agent in the FBI (Fluffy Bunny Investigations) ……

      …… sent me these covert photos of the gang breaking in …….

      …… and the gang leader wearing the loot.

      I should call in the Mounties.
      Big hug dear friend.

  13. Dear me, Samantha wasn’t very nice when she described you as old, rusting, antique, out of date etc! LOL Naughty Samantha. ❤

  14. i love how all this chaos takes place behind the scenes as it were. Pulling on chains is one thing our cat Tommy did as well to sometimes hilarious results. His best trick however was to wait for the postman underneath the letter box and to allow the mail to fall on his head. Why? We never found out, perhaps you could ask Samantha she might have an idea. Have a great weekend my friend.

    • Great comment Sandra ! Glad you enjoyed this post my friend.
      No way ! I’m keeping well away from internet dating after being hung out to dry by a Nigerian posing as a Texas gal. Do you try these sites ? Ralph xox ❤

      • Hi Ralph, that’s why I said Local dating sites, only accepting locals who don’t want anything but love. I am on Two Asexual dating sites. It will take me a long time to get the right asexual guy. I don’t want sex, marriage or kids, or to live with anyone either. But still would like a romantic relationship with tons of kissing, with a foreign guy, in his 20s, in the UK. Preferably Indian as that’s what my most aesthetic, intelligent and emotional attraction is for. So it would be a Living Apart Together relationship. But unless I get the right guy, I am staying single forever.

      • Oh yes and he will be in his 20s ideally, with short brown hair, clean shaven and thin frame. I am an asexy younger romantic cougar, after all.
