Puss In Coal Bucket.


 Well I have heard of Puss In Boots.  But never in a coal ("smokeless fuel") bucket.

I called her "Minnie Mouser".  But everyone who lives here seems to be calling her "Muss Muss" because she's a bit of dictator like Mussolini was, wears black fur clothes and does what she wants.

She's quite adorable.  Even yesterday morning when she ate number one's sandwiches that his mother had prepared for him to take to work with him.

I found a dead rat 🐀 near my compost pile yesterday morning.  The smallholding cats are obviously earning their crust?

  1. To be honest, I am having trouble seeing the pussy in the bucket. It looks like a block of turf to me.

  2. You can see her white nose on the right hand side of the bucket YP. They are trying to ban people selling and burning turf over here. Hope they don't ban pussy cats from residing in solid fuel scuttles? Thanks.

    1. Time for me to visit Specsavers I think. I have always been pretty good at seeing pussies.

    4. Sunderland's nickname is The Black Cats. Sell "Muss Muss" to a Sunderland fan and you will make a mint!

  3. You have to live with an animal a bit and then his/her name usually comes naturally. . Love your Muss-Muss!

  4. I think you're right Linda. You have to live with them a bit and get to know their character and devilment to choose the right name for them.

  5. I like the photo Dave. I agree about getting to know cats before you name them with their forever names. When my four were kittens I gave them completely different names to what they ended up with. They just seem to grow into some other name that suits them more.

  6. Thanks Rachel. I agree with you and I think cats are much more enigmatic and mysterious than dogs are. I love both types of animals and find them real characters.

  7. Is that her version of applied camouflage? A bit of blacking here and there to ensure a matt finish that doesn't catch the light and perhaps even mask the scent of cat? What rat would be alerted to danger by the smell of coal?

  8. Mussy's favourite record is - "Camouflage" by Stan Ridgeway TM. Perhaps covering one's self in coal dust is a great way to catch a rural rat?
