Do cats have an OFF button? Or, at the very least, a LOW POWER button? Louis Catorze is driving us crazy with his naughtiness at the moment.
His lust for play has reignited, and he’s started to let out little “Waaah!” sounds as he chases his toy. If he sees us in the kitchen through the patio doors, he refuses to use the cat flap and screams to be let in. He can be frighteningly convincing, pawing at the glass and looking utterly fearful for his life yet, if we ignore the little weasel for long enough – usually a minute or two – he will come in of his own accord, up-tailed, chirpy and smug, as if saying, “Et voilà! I didn’t need you after all.” He’s also starting to go out for longer at night, as his big brother Luther used to do, and rolls in just before my alarm goes off, soaking wet, shrieking in my ear and with that vile, stomach-churning wet dog smell. Yuck.
His eyes now look exactly like the eyes of a normal cat, with no leathery, bald bits. The horrible under-chin scabs are disappearing, with fur growing back. And I suspect his annoyingness is down to the fact that he’s happier and feeling much better. So, in all, things are looking up for the little sod.
This time last year he looked like crap and was sad, and the year before he was even worse, so I’m excited beyond belief at the prospect of Louis Catorze’s first festive season, to my knowledge, in good health. Here he is, drinking to that!

Yay! Little Louis! (Can’t believe you resist that Let Me Iiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnn look)
One happy Sun King, wet or not, makes us all happy 😊!!
You and the CD deserve nice presents from Santa (as does Le Roi all things considered) and may Krampus skip your home.
I think Louis Catorze IS Krampus.
What a lovely Christmas you will have, compared to the worry and feeling of desperation I remember from your last year’s posts. We’re all happy that his majesty will be able to enjoy all the wonders of Christmas.. running after balled up pieces of paper after opening your presents and such like. Happy days ahead!
You know what they say… ‘Dogs have masters, Cats have slaves….’
Is there a status lower than “slave”? I think Cat Daddy is the slave & I am whatever the lower one is.
