I am disappointed.Β  My good for nothing cats just lie around and sleep all day.


Even the sheep out the back, who the cats should be counting to go to sleep, are disappointed and have gone to sleep themselves as they are never counted and have got bored.



So I am going to change all that and bring in a strict exercise regime for my cats.Β  But nothing like the way my Spanish friend, Manuel, exercises his dog Yaki (Yak Key).


Queen –Β  Bicycle Race




Wake up cats !Β  Daddy is coming for you !



Sonic !Β  Stop pretending that you have stuff to do !Β  Come on into the bedroom we need to have a serious talk !





Right you three, you need to wake up and get some exercise.Β  So Daddy has worked out a daily schedule to get you fit and healthy.


Okay, I can see your point China Cat.Β  You are excused from exercising and you don’t have a wedgie.Β  You have a WEDGE jammed under the bedroom door to stop it slamming in the wind and throwing you down the hall.Β  These are wedgies !




Right you TWO !Β  This is how it is going to work.

When I wake up in the morningΒ  I’ll brush your fur as normal …..


…. then you will do an hour of yoga ….


…. followed by chasing your toys around the apartment until you drop


And if there is any slacking, you will do it all again in the afternoon.Β  Got it ??

I’m going to make myself a coffee.Β  Talk amongst yourselves and when I come back I want to hear a “Yes, Daddy, we are really happy to do lots of exercises”.








Right cats, ready for yourrrr ….. where’s Sonic ???




Ummm…yes !Β  You mean this Samantha ?


Sonic’s NOT on my laptop telling all my female readers ?????Β  Nooooo !!!!

Β d25a


You rotten …..Β  okay, you win.Β Β  No more talk about exercises.Β Β  Call Sonic offΒ  !!



Oh boy !!Β  *faint*



Are you a disappointment ?

Sonic says Daddy is !

  4. Dear Ralph,
    Are you kidding? Routine cat exercises? Routine poutine is more like it. I’m sure Jeep & Johnny have told Sonic & Samantha what poutine is.
    Okay, I need to not exercise. Why should I? I’m prepping a post with the pics you sent me & that’s enough work!
    So, much love to you & the gang of cats & all your friends!

    • Hello dear Resa πŸ™‚
      I had to Google Putin, oops poutine, as not only are we an ignorant pseudo-Spanish mountain family, but all J&J talked about was love.

      Now you’ve made me hungry at 2:30 AM, hankering after poutine >>> French fries, cheese and gravy. Oh boy !
      Yes, it is all my fault that you are working on my pics instead of exercising J&J. Blame me ! I’m a big boy and I can take it πŸ˜‰ lol
      Lots of love to you and J&J ( China Cat also sends her love to Bad Boy). Ralph xoxo ❀ πŸ™‚ #<
      PS. I'm going out into the kitchen and make some poutine, well sort of, as I haven't any french fries or gravy, but I have some cheese. I'll call it Spanish poutine πŸ˜‰

      • Darling Ralph,
        I’m glad you are having some … cheese… which is not poutine. W/o the fries and gravy, it is cheese.
        Also, it is not merely cheese that makes poutine, poutine…. it is cheese curds. (I know, makes me sick, too!)
        Okay, S & S are sending inter-canine psychic messages to J & J & vice-versa. I need to go & attempt interception.
        Will keep you posted.

        Wow ! I didn’t know that J&J and S&S are psychic. Now I know why they have been patting a tiny crystal ball around the apartment. I am looking forward to seeing what you pick up my friend. I’ve got nothing πŸ˜‰

      • Ha ha ha! Cats just don’t DO exercise except when they are out of the house chasing a bird or fighting. Your cats look like all they could fight would be a cushion so I wouldn’t expect any exercise from them any time soon!

        Hello my friend. I totally agree. The only exercise my cats get are staring for hours at a gecko on the wall, fight for a couple of minutes and dig at me when I am trying to go to sleep. Oh boy !

While she was here I use the opportunity to vacuum my laptop, especially underneath where the fluff gets trapped in the fan intake. I must have overdone it as the fan stopped working, laptop overheated and kept turning itself off. Luckily I got the fan working again so here I am. Oh boy !

      lol. Yes, my cats do have a mind of their own and never listen to me. Oh well.

    So much for having your cats exercise! We “make” our chipmunks exercise though – they do stretching and boot camp.
