Not Amused

I really want to go out! Mr. Bowie is not amused at all because he has to stay inside. A gardeners team is taking care of the annual garden clean up. Big and dangerous machines are making a lot of noise outside. We had to wear ear plugs indoor to enjoy our espresso and treats… Nevertheless we will make up for it tomorrow! Glad the summer is not ending…


Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

    • Thank you! I can picture the scene. My neighbours all have dogs so… a lot of barking going on right now! πŸ˜‰

  1. Those machines are VERY noisy……now that Sam’s hearing isn’t very good it doesn’t really bother him but it sure bothers me! I’ll have to “double up” on my espresso and chocolate to make up for it!


  2. My two handle thunder and firecrackers with great aplomb, but what does cause them stress and alarm is the sound of the power mower. Once a week during the season, then, my two kitties run to the opposite side of the house and hide under a bed until the grass outside is mowed..

    • Well, Mr. Bowie loves to watch thunderstorms and lightning, even the annual firework show, but he’s so frightened by the sound of the telephone (and cell phones) and my doorbell. So weird…

  3. Bowie will eventually appreciate the effort the gardener’s put in when he’s laying outside under a nicely trimmed hedge. Have a nice day Herman. The kids say “meow” to Bowie. πŸ˜€

  4. Peace, love and understanding. I love it. MaChatte hates the big lawn mowers too. It’s not fit for a cat out there when that stuff is going on, Mr. Bowie, but it will look different when you get to go out after it’s done. New trimmed places to explore! Enjoy the treats inside for now.

    • He will have a great time checking out the newly trimmed garden. And afterwards getting a treat as surprise…

  5. I hate those noisy machines, too. It is still too hot here to be outside much. I am enjoying my coffee at the window these days. The cats ask when we are moving to a place like Mr. Bowie’s so they can have a catio. I am working on it is not what they want to hear.

    • Haha… cats always know what they really want! πŸ™‚
      Mr. Bowie is a very lucky cat having such a safe garden to enjoy whenever he wants to.
      Temperatures are mid 20’s (Celsius) these days, perfect for spending your day outside…

    • Oh yes! The guys did a perfect job and everything looks very beautiful. We are going to have a great time outside the next days…

  6. Super grappige foto!!!
    Bowie even op je tandjes bijten, de tuin zal er weer super mooi uitzien als de tuinmannen hun werk gedaan hebben πŸ™‚ .

    • Het was heel grappig. Hij stoorde zich niet aan het helse lawaai. Hij wou echt naar buiten om die mannen orders te geven denk ik…
      Ik hou Bowie wel enkele dagen binnen want ze hebben net iets teveel aan het spuiten geweest op plaatsen waar het niet echt nodig was, en daar is net zijn favoriete plaats. De bijsluiter van dat product zegt dat je huisdieren al na 3 uur terug buiten mag laten maar dat vertrouw ik toch niet echt. Ik bedoel, het onkruid gaat er toch van kapot dus…

    • Thank you, my friend! Don’t you worry, that dangerous looking machine is gone and Mr. Bowie is a very happy cat now he can go back outside…

      Have a nice day! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

    • Oh no… raining…. we hate that too!

      Well, my dear Shrimp, it looks like you are a very busy Kat. Good luck with your new blog and your stories about the frustrations of living with the lower life forms, their creatures and your furry relatives!

      PS: Thank you for following HoB. Much appreciated! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

      • Why thank you!! Thanks fur stopping by! It’s so good to see you here! Here’s a treat fur Mr.Bowie! πŸ₯

  7. Poor Mr. Bowie. My critters sympathize. They have an anipal door onto the garden and are most indignant on the rare occasion it is shut. πŸ˜€

  8. At least you and Mr. Bowie are safe and sound inside! I am not a fan of leaf blowers, much preferring a rake. have some extra cat treats, dark chocolate and espresso, Herman and Mr. Bowie!

  9. Even a vacuum cleaner is way too much for a cat, not to mention the terrible noise when it’s picking up trash day every Monday, uh somebody is hiding under the couch, but of course it involves treats when it’s all over!

    • The team has left the building and Mr. Bowie can enjoy a beautiful garden once again… And I’ll have my espresso outside, please…

  11. I haven’t visited you guys so long! I am helping my daughter with her new baby, and we are very busy, but I see that you are busy too, especially Mr. Bowie who is supervising the landscaping works. Whom else would you trust this important task?

    • Hi Charlotte! The landscape gardener did a really great job.
      We’re still having a good time outside with this warm weather.
