Hi Guys!

It's me, Winnie. Long time, no meow. How have you all been?

I've been OK. Can't say I'm real happy about the cool change in the weather of late. It seriously cramps my style as an outdoor cat, if you know what I mean. Trying to concentrate on running and climbing and hunting insects and staring down the three-legged cat across the street is tough work when you're freezing your tail off! Brrr...

Anyway, you're probably all wondering why I'm taking over this particular Winchester Wednesday. Well, I noticed a few 'old' photos of Katy and her previous cats lying around and I couldn't resist going through them.

MMAO! (aka 'Meow My Ass Off!') When I say 'old' I mean OLD! We're talking the 1970s, man! And the 1980s, dude! And the 1990s, dog! Talk about funny!!! The fur-dos on those cats back then. Ha! Wait until you see the stylin' of Tegan!

Anyway, since Katy regularly posts photos of me here for all the world to see I decided a little payback was in order. She doesn't think I know about her posting 'this photo' in Winchester Wednesday #6 but I do. Besides, it's only fair that the cats who came before me in those pre-internet days (whut?!?) get their time in the spotlight. Oh, and there's a few more photos of wee!katy like this one...



Winchester Wednesday Goes Retro... )

Another brief post today.
I'm still really tired and I still don't feel well.
And Winnie still doesn't like me very much for leaving her for four days. :(

Even when I explained to her it was because I went to see Jensen, Jared, and Misha it made no difference.
She did sleep on my bed for a little while last night and we had a little snuggle this morning so perhaps she's coming around. Just a little. :)



A Couple More... )

PS. I have been so slack in commenting this past week. I'm so sorry. Forgive me?
I'll get my act together soon. I promise. ::HUGS::
♥ Katy
First up. It's still Wednesday... some where in the World. Lots of places, in fact. Just not in Melbourne. But, ssssh! Don't tell anyone. ;P



Today I have a few new photos of Winnie plus some Winnie inspired creative stuff... )

Happy Wednesday!

Next week I'll have new photos of Winnie Winchester. I promise!

This week, let's take a trip back in time and take a look at how the little puddy tat has grown.



Winchester Wednesday #1 - #17 )

Happy Wednesday!

Man, I sound like such a dork. LOL! And, yeah, it would have been a lot easier if I had just typed this post. That'll learn me for being lazy. *facepalm*

But, hey, if I'd typed it you wouldn't have heard me talking briefly about NCIS, Castle, Misha, Jensen, Jared, LA Con, or Winnie. Nor would you have heard Winnie Winchester's tiny little 'meow'!

Happy Tuesday!

I don't have any wacky Winnie stories to tell this week and I don't have many photos either. It's hard to take photos of her outside because she doesn't stay close anymore; she doesn't even stay in our garden anymore. As far as she's concerned, a fence is only there to jump over or to crawl under.



This way to Winnie... )

Happy Wednesday!

Hope you enjoyed last week's Winchester Wednesday by Winnie. I'm sure she'd love to be back here again this week telling you all about her adventures but she's got other things going on this week.

Winnie 02
Things like sleeping.

Just a couple of photos today... )

Hi, it's Winnie here. At least I think my name is Winnie. My humans also call me;

Winnie Winchester
Lil' Monkey
Lil' Monster
Gremlin
Honey
Sweetheart
Winnie Girl
WINCHESTER!

I don't mind my other names but I don't really like it when they call me WINCHESTER! They say it really loudly and all stern-like. I think it means I'm in trouble.

I'm taking over this week's Winchester Wednesday because I want to tell you about yesterday. It was the worst day of my life. *dramatic sigh* I was allowed outside for about 30 minutes in the morning and it was really windy and there were leaves and things blowing around everywhere and it was so much fun chasing them. *weeeeeeee*

Of course, that's not what made it the WORST. DAY. EVA. It was the WORST. DAY. EVA. because katy!human wouldn't let me go outside again. *growls* She said something about it being too windy and she didn't want me being blown out of a tree or being hit by a falling branch or something.

Pfft! No branch is hitting me! I can run really, really, really fast. You've all seen Road Runner and Wylie Coyote, right? Well, I'm fast like the Road Runner!

Winnie 07
BEEP! BEEP!

And as for falling out of a tree. AS IF! I spend half my life up a tree (that's normal for a cat, right?). No liitle breeze is blowing me anywhere. Hey, look! It's me in a tree for a change... )

ADVENTURE #1 - Now what?

You know something 'bad' has happened when you receive an email at work simply titled, "Your Cat" with a bunch of photos attached.

Oh, boy. What has she done now...

ADVENTURE #2 - Let's get ready to rumble!

This week on Battle of the Backyard:
Winnie 0
Bee 0


Last Friday night Winnie and I were playing 'chase the stick'. I was swishing the stick around. She was chasing the stick around. (It doesn't really work the other way around.) She was taking a breather when she noticed a bee close by. She pounced on it at the same time that I jumped up to shoo it (or her) away. She was too quick or I wasn't quick enough. Next thing I know she jumped away, meowing, and ran to the safety of her favourite bush. She then immediately stuck her paw in her mouth and started chewing. I can only assume she got stung by the bee and was trying to get the stinger out. Ouch!

I scooped her up and took her inside straight away. She meowed and struggled. I put her down. She ran to her biscuits and starting eating. Okey dokey, she can't be too bad off then. I tried checking her paw. She didn't like me touching it but she's usually grumpy after she's been forced to come inside. Using the magic of Google I discovered that a cat who has been stung by a bee should be okay but I should make sure her paw doesn't swell up too much and her face doesn't swell and she doesn't have any trouble breathing. Check. Check. Check.

Luckily, she was fine. No ill effects at all. I never found any evidence she was stung; No stinger in Winnie, no bee corpse outside.

I'm running late with Winchester Wednesday today so I'm just going to stick with a small video of her.


Winnie Winchester: Part cat. Part monkey.

BTW, she did eventually dislodge herself and make her own way down from the tree. :)

Winnie 09

Our little girl sure is growing up! With every passing day she's getting more and more adventurous. I've mentioned before that I worry when I let her outside and today's Winchester Wednesday demonstrates why. She just doesn't seem to have any sense fear.

Winnie Winchester laughs in the face of danger... )


Guest Pet of the Week:
The guest this week isn't actually a pet but she does have fur and likes to climb trees so she has enough in common with Winnie to include here.

Remember the photo I posted of the CFA (Country Fire Authoriy) Officer giving the little koala a drink of water after a bushfire had passed through? A follow up story on the koala, called Sam, and other wildlife affected by the fires was posted today on news.com.au with photos and a video.

Check out Sam the Koala now... )

1) Thank you to everyone for your thoughts on the bushfires here in Victoria. Sadly, they are still burning and the death toll is still rising. If there is anything positive to come out of the tragic events of the past few days it's the generosity and support pouring in from around Australia. The Red Cross has set up the Victorian Bushfire Appeal 2009 and as of 9:00 PM Tuesday night, they had received over $31 million in donations. This is from a country of of only 20 million people. It makes me proud to be an Aussie.


2) Only two sleeps until the Team!Shortbus outing to see 3D!Jensen! My Bloody Valentine 3D starts here on Thursday and I can't wait. \O/


3) A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away I used to work at a Child Care Centre. I have a university degree in Early Childhood Studies (Kindergarten / PreSchool Teacher) but I haven't worked with kids for nearly nine years.

For the past few months I've been trying to remember the name of one of the kids I had in my 3/4 year old group for a couple of years. I know you shouldn't have favourites but hanging out with a group of kids is like hanging out with any other group of people in that you get on better with some more than others. I'm pretty sure I didn't play favourites but I loved having this kid in the group and I was a little sad I couldn't remember his name especially since I had no trouble remembering his little brother's name.

A short story made long... )


4) I have tales of mischief to share with you tomorrow on 'Winchester Wednesday'. The cat is out of control! However, if you could see her this minute you wouldn't believe it. She's currently curled up next to me on my bed, fast asleep.


5) Happy Leverage Tuesday!



I mentioned yesterday things have cooled down in Melbourne a fair bit since last week. No cat is more grateful than Winnie Winchester. The high temperatures knocked her about and she was extemely lethargic. She spent most days just hanging out in the bedroom with air conditioning and she didn't even complain about being locked up all day. She's a smart cat. :)

Perhaps if she didn't have her shiny black fur coat on...  )



Today was 43°c (109.4 F).
Tomorrow is going to be 43°c (109.4 F).
Saturday is going to be 40°c (104 F).

This is Winnie Winchester's first real experience of hot weather and she's not all that happy about. I can't blame her. We don't have air conditioning in the house except in one bedroom and it's not mine. *pouts*

On with the show... )

Special Guest Pet of the Week!

Welcome to a new segment here at Winchester Wednesday!
Each week (or at least this week) I'll be featuring a special pet to star along side Winnie.

This week's Special Guest Pet of the Week is Ginger! )

Winnie Upside down

Stitch-less and fancy free!
Winnie Winchester had her stitches removed on Saturday morning and she behaved perfectly. She growled at a big labrador in the waiting room, which was very brave of her even if she was on my lap, in her cage, at the time.

Tell me we don't have to go again... Ever! )

Photos, photos, photos... )

Winnie's Grand Adventure or Oh! Noes!
Winnie still hasn't been outside a great deal. In fact, it's probably been about a month since she was last outside. I keep making excuses: She's too little, she hasn't been fixed and there are tom cats around (can't use that excuse any more), she won't find her way home, she's not afraid of anything so how will she know to avoid cars and dogs... My list goes on.

This morning Winnie either decided to take things into her own hands or fate gave her a helping hand...

Where's Winnie? )

★ It's 11:30 o'clock at night and it's currently 31°c (88°f) Who lives where it's a 31°c at 11:30 pm? *sigh* It reached 39°c (102°f) today and the forecast for tomorrow is much the same. *melts*


★ I took Winnie to the vet this evening for a check up after her operation last week. The vet remembered her. Remembered her a little too well from the alleged chaos and injuries she caused when they tried to take her blood last week. He even went as far as to tell me she was the 'second worst cat he's ever treated'. o_O

My sweet little Winnie? Second worst cat he's ever treated? But she's only a little kitten... :(

Winnie's fourth trip to the vet... )


★ New episode of Kyle XY = FTW! It was so great visiting with Kyle and the Tragers again.

Flist, who else out there watches Kyle XY? I know [livejournal.com profile] whimsywinx and [livejournal.com profile] mel_b_angel do and I know Whimsy liked it. [livejournal.com profile] mel_b_angel did you watch it yet?


★ New episode of Leverage tonight. If Kyle was the my big TV discovery in 2008 then Leverage is my TV discovery of 2009. It just keeps getting better; it's already come a long way from the pilot. I love how the characters have developed and their relationships with each other. *loves*


★ I think I had something else to say but I can't remember what. It couldn't have been that interesting so I probably just saved y'all 30 seconds reading time which you can put to good use else where.


★ Happy Tuesday!

Winnie is back home after her operation. I picked her up about three hours ago. The operation went fine and she is doing OK.
