Kirk and Worf

data_profile_2Since yesterday, I lost contact with Worf. A big white and opaque fence grew between us. True, we never had a clear view to his room, but still we could touch noses and look over the fence to check what’s up. But yesterday all this changed.

Why?! Because Kirk and Worf moved in together. As Kirk and Spock don’t see eye to eye, the white opaque fence had to be put between us. To be honest, when Kirk and Spock see each other so close, they start chattering teeth and, as there is a fence between them and can’t get to each other troths, they just turn to the ones closer: me and Worf. So, the fence is to prevent us fighting, not them. I know, it’s a weird explanation, but it is the truth…

So, now Kirk and Worf are sharing a big C&C cage of 2×5. Bigger than ours, which is 2×4, but we have access to the couch. And we are naughty enough not to get upset from sharing stuff and just enjoy making fun of each other. Remember how we love stealing food from each other mouths? But let’s come back to Kirk and Worf…

We are talking about the jealous Kirk and the self-sufficient Worf. And they are both gourmands. Moreover, Kirk is that type who thinks that just because he is bigger, he can bully everyone else. Just that usually he gets out of the fight with scratches and bites. And Worf just loves to be left alone with his food. Then why paring them?! Because the humans believe they will be happier after all. Maybe they will even enjoy cuddling.

Since yesterday they are together. No fight, no biting, just the usual trials to show dominance. Also, Worf is somehow cornering Kirk and prevents him sometimes to get to the food. And now the humans are not afraid about real wounds, but about some psychological drama. Maybe a very sad Kirk… Because Worf looks like he would like to be more sociable wit Kirk. But, although I can’t see him, I hear some small normal noises from Kirk, so maybe everything will be fine after all. Anyhow, the hf is super attentive, refused to leave the house today and woke up several times over night to check on them.

This is how their new huge room looks like:DSCN4401_1

Maybe, in time, Kirk and Spock will be able to behave when they get closer and the white opaque fence will be removed from the grids. We will keep you posted.

The main bedroom

When it was only I and Spock and we were living in the other apartment, I used to get in to the main bedroom quite often. The hf was taking me in the bed and cuddling me far away from Spock’s scent and presence. If we were sitting on the couch, I would just try to get to Spock and wouldn’t enjoy the human’s attention.

Since we are four, she has to divide her attention. But I still get to cuddle with her. And she understood I don’t like to feel another piggy scent on her, so, at some point, she used to have a T-shirt especially for me. After we moved, the house got bigger and the places where we could be just the two of us multiplied. Sometimes she just grabs me and I get to walk all over the house in her arms.

But, last week-end the hm took me to the main bedroom and dropped me in to her arms. (She was still being lazy in bed.) And I’ve got to cuddle in the duvet. 😀  Just look how cute I am!

Green, green grass

spock_profile_2For us it’s just an ordinary Saturday: sleeping, pooping, eating… On the other hand, the humans were put to work for us because spring is here (at least in theory) and summer will soon follow.

Last year when the humans were searching for a new apartment, we had a major role in the decision making process. They had to find something with a living area big enough to accommodate us and them and, preferably, with a garden or a little yard. The garden was asked also by the hm who loves having barbeque from time to time, but for the hf we were the main reason – grass for us! They managed and found a place like this and now we have a little garden.

But there was no grass in the garden. Moreover, the soil is not quite nice and the former renters had put a concrete terrace over the garden. Thanks all mighty guinea pigs’ gods they had to take it out, but they did a not so good job in removing all the stones and debris. Consequently, when the hf tried to plant grass last autumn, the results were not awesome. So, action was required.

Yesterday the hm was sent to buy some bags of nice soil. He came back with two of them, 80l in total. Today the hf (heavily pregnant, just for the record) went into the garden, cleaned the dead leaf and branches, spread the new soil and some new grass seeds. But she still needs more seeds, so she has to go shopping later.

Now the garden looks like this:

???????????????????????????????

The whitish things are the seeds and we are waiting for some Belgian rain to help them grow. In two weeks the hf will spread new ones to fill in the gaps.  Hopefully, in May or June we will have nice grass and we could go out and play in it. Of course, if it won’t rain all the time. The hf even thinks of buying or improvising some kind of fence to keep us away from the areas where other plants are, about which we have no idea if they are good or not for us.

In the meanwhile, we comfort ourselves with grass in pots. I know: it’s a hard life!

???????????????????????????????

By the way, if you don’t have a garden, but you still have a balcony or some space in your house, you can put soil in some wood boxes (form wine, fruits etc.) and plant grass seeds. The bed doesn’t have to be deep for this kind of culture, 2 or 3 centimetres being sufficient. Than you can either cut the grass and give it to us or let us in the box to have some fun.

???????????????????????????????OK, now I must go and tell the others the news about the grass. See you around!
