Smelly Cat and Return To Sunday Post!


It feels like forever since I sat and wrote a Sunday Post: Probably because it has been forever! 
Honestly, I don't even know what to update. 
Where to begin...

Okay, I've sat staring at a blinking curser for about 10min debating and I'm just jumping back in as though I haven't missed dozens (hundreds?) of these posts whilst dealing with the flighty fairy in my brain.

This week was a pretty uneventful week. 
Work, school and standard housework. 
What can I say? I lead an exciting life. 😂

We had some drama yesterday when Vesta, one of my cats, escaped the back garden and went on the lam... She's done it before and always comes home fairly quickly but it always gives me major anxiety in case she gets hurt (or stolen). 
She came back after an hour or so and I gave her a pet and realised she was wet. 
Then my nose caught up and I realised she stank! Upon closer inspection, she was wet down one side, all over her legs, chest and belly, tail... I have no idea what the heck she had got herself covered in but it was nauseating. My housing area is surrounded by fields and farms so I assume it was either some animal related substance or a farm related substance like fertiliser/slurry or something but it resulted in a full bath for the cat; rinsing, soaping, repeat until finally clean. 

To say she was not happy is probably the biggest understatement of the decade. 
I really wasn't happy either. I got soaked bathing her and then had to shower, change and then mop floors (not to mention cleaning the bathroom - after cleaning just the day before!) so she's currently banned from garden time. 
She also took forever to get dry and brushed out because, did I mention, that Vesta is a fluffy white Ragdoll? 😫
She's a menace. But I love her.

Today, I'm baking ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls and finishing off laundry. 

Earlier this week, I read Big Demon Energy by Deborah Wilde.

I'm currently reading Baby, One More Time by Camilla Isley and listening to Divine Rivals by Rebecca Ross. 

I'll probably finish both of them today. I have 1.5hrs of Divine Rivals left and about 30% remaining on Baby, One More Time.

We're currently watching Shogun and Fallout
I'm enjoying Shogun but Fallout is not my thing... But the husband is watching it so I inevitably watch it too. 

Do you like Cinnamon Rolls? 



  1. I do love cinnamon rolls that are home baked. That's my way with cakes and whatnot. I only really like the ones not from a package. Your cat really got into it. You try to be mad, but then you look into that face. And I can't stop singing - "smelly cat, smelly cat, what are they feeding you?" Happy Sunday!

  2. Wow, what an adventure for your cat, and clean-up is never fun. She is a beautiful cat.

  3. Urg!! The kitty clean-up sounds grim - I've only ever known one cat that we had who happily submitted to baths. But I have to say it was worth it as she now looks magnificent. And yes... I LOVE cinnamon rolls - I hear that cinnamon is very good for fighting inflammation and firing up our metabolism. Have a great week.

  4. Cat really hate taking bath or shower LOL

  5. Poor Vesta. My boy Winchester hasn't explored the outdoors. Love cinnamon rolls. We bake them during the holidays. Glad you are back :)

  6. Awww Vesta! Cats do not like water. I can only imagine what you had to go through bathing her. I love cinnamon rolls. Yum!

  7. Oh no, Vesta! My first thought was she ran into a skunk, but it sounds like it was slightly easier to get out than skunk stink? I'm glad it all ended well though!

    We've also been watching Shogun and Fallout, and I'm enjoying both. The latest episode of Shogun was painful, I cannot believe they left us there! I'm simultaneously excited for the next episode and considering a protest!

  8. Cleaning that fluffy kitty would not be fun!! I had to clean my cat on the first night of our roadtrip due to her stress-pooping in her carrier. Me and her in a tiny Motel 6 bathroom that only had a shower in it, not a tub, armed with nothing but baby wipes and paper towels.

    ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls sounds? I'm drooling!

  9. I've missed your Sunday Posts, Nicci! Vesta, you bad kitty! What a hassle, but I had to laugh at the story! I bet she thought twice about her adventuring after the bath! My cat can get up to all kinds of shenanigans too, but I love him as well! Have a lovely week. :)

  10. I was so happy to see your comment! Nice having you back. And oh my gosh poor Vesta! Glad she's alright
