The Story of Adam and Eve

Story of Adam & Eve's Pets Adam and Eve said, 'Lord, when we were in the garden you walked with us every day. Now we do not see you any more. We are lonesome here, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us.'

And God said ‘I will create a companion for you that will be with you and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves.'

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve. And it was a good animal and God was pleased. And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he wagged his tail. And Adam said, 'Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal.'

And God said, 'I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG.'

And Dog lived with Adam and Eve and was a companion to them and loved them. And they were comforted and God was pleased. Dog was content and wagged his tail. After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to the Lord and said, 'Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride. They strut and preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well.'

And God said, I will create for them a companion who will be with them and who will see them as they are. The companion will remind them of their limitations, so they will know that they are not always worthy of adoration.'

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve.

And Cat would not obey them.

And when Adam and Eve gazed into Cat's eyes, they were reminded that they were not the supreme beings. And Adam and Eve learned humility.

And they were greatly improved.

And God was pleased . . .

And Dog was happy. . . . .

And Cat didn't give a shit one way or the other....

Hello! We're still here

Dear all, just a quick note to let all our furry friends know that we are stil here, but our beans have been very busy, especially our bean who helps us with the typing. She is studying again, but she has just finished her project that needs to be handed in tomorrow. Maybe now they wil start taking pics of us again!

Oh, and Sheba is much better! She has even jumped down from the kist and has been curling up infront of the heater. It has been really cold here - 13 degrees celsius - and there is nothng better than sleeping next to the heater. We will post pics shortly.

New 7 Wonders of the World - Vote TABLE MOUNTAIN

Dear All,

Some UN people came up with the idea of having a list of the new 7 natural wonders of the world. People around the world have to vote for what they think should be on the list.
At this moment, Table Mountain is ranked 27 out of 400 or so.. which is not bad.
Please click on the link below and cast your vote. (You also need to chose 6 other wonders).
This will certainly also benefit our tourism industry.

The deadline is end of July 2009.
Thank you in advance.
Kind regards.

We have post!

We got a card from our cousin Alfie- it was addressed to all of us!

Our beans wonder WHAT the postman thought! We wanted to really brag and show the world the envelope - but our beans said that is not a very safe thing to do. We not sure why - we just want to get more mail! We just think our beans are jealous they did not get any!
Shrek - your bean here: There are lots of crazy people out there, my little Shrek! They are not as gentle and friendly like you - if only the human world was run by cats like you!

Hello cousin Alfie!

Well, it seems my beans are not being very forthcoming with what they were up to! We know that they left us aong for 3 weeks!!!! We have established that they went overseas - we not sure what that means yet! But we know they went to visit our cousin Alfie in Lydney, UK. While them beans were not watching, we furry ones sent Shrek to investigate and see what he found!

Yipppppeeeeee!!!! That Springbok jersey went with my beans over-the-seas! Alfie, hope you enjoy wearing it more than we did!

Hurry Shrek, beans are coming back - just hit the upload button! QUICK!! Let's get out of here!

Cape Town Spectacular!

Beautiful - but we cats hide under the bed when lightning first struck! Not our cup of tea!

Sunday, May 17, 2009

LEAVE us alone!

It must be winter....... Tom and Shrek are cuddling and their beans are not allowed near the bed.......

They're Back!

Yeeeeeehaaaaaa! My beans are back! And I think I am going to make very sure this suitcase is not going anywhere without me! My beans said that they will give a full update on where they were! But firstly, to let everyone know - Sheba is a lot better, but we still growl at each other! She now sleeps in her basket onto of the kist in the lounge, together with her food, water and own sandbox! My what humble servants our beans are!

Human Madness - Cape Argus Cycle Tour

Just a quick update on Sheba - she seems a lot better although she keeps to herself most days. Her favourite spot these days is on top of the washing machine in this old beer box that Jerry and I have just "lent" for the photo shoot! I, being Shrek still hiss at her and sometimes still take a swipe at her - but only really when I am sure no-one is looking because them beings get very upset when I do that. Anyway, I am just trying to be more dominant although I am the youngest! So to all who have been wondering and sending their purrs - thank you. We did receive them - we just did not really feel like sitting in front of the computer in 40 degrees celsius heat!

Today is also the Pick 'n Pay Cape Argus Cycle Race. Total madness if you ask me! To sit in a saddle for 109 km, even though it is a very scenic route - from the middle of Cape Tour, along the False Bay Coast, past Cape Point, over Chapmans Peak Drive through Hout Bay and along the Atlantic Coast line back to Cape Town. Oh, I can just think to the sore backsides! I will just go back to snoozing. On top of that there is a howling south-easter, so I wonder how many people will stay on their bikes, hmmmmmm. My beans are not stupid - they are definitely not taking part - their excuse being they anyway don't own bicylces! My one bean will rather go and swim 3km every morning at the gym.

Sheba Update

Update on Sheba - is a "we don't know"! Sheba seems better, but all us boys just stay as far away from her as possible. She growls at me and I naturally taunt her as well. Our beans are worried because all this growling is upsetting them. Sheba also wees on the carpet, but maybe that's because I might just be blocking her path to the litterbox. Our beans have also been super busy so they have not had time to help updating my blog. Tom and Jerry are also not too sure how to handle this situation, while Shaka just makes sure he hides away and out of danger! So if anyone has advice - that would be great!

Camps Bay & Twelve Apostles

My beans are still worried about Sheba. She went to the vet yesterday and my beans decided that it will be to our good and hers as well as our beans if she slept over. She has been growling at all of us boys if we ventured too close to her. Something is wrong and we are all worried, but at least we boys got onto the bed during the night! My beans took this photo of the beautiful Camps Bay beach with the Twelve Apostles in the background. The Tewlve Apostles are part of Table Mountain. This is supposed to take our beans minds off serious things! Hopefully by 11am we will have better news.

Quick Sheba Update

Just a quick update on Sheba - she seems to be a lot better - our beans are monitoring her very closely. We boys are still very careful in her presence - although I am still getting wacked for being naughty when I chase her! Thanks to all for their concern and postings. Our beans have been working very hard and have not had much time for blogging.

Innocent Moves!

Wow! I must try this again! My bean who is so busy saw me trying my best to look very cute so that I cold cuddle up with Sheba onto of our favourite green blanket on top of our favourite cupboard but it ended up in a "Russian Standoff". Sheba growled and did not want me anywhere near her. I think I will just stay on my side for now! Sheba has lately not felt well and my beans are very worried that she has a bad bladder infection. She growls when any of us boys come near her, especially when she is in the litterbox. She has soiled the bed a few times to let our beans know that she is not feeling well. She has also swatted me a few times with good left upper cutters, which my beans found very amusing. They say it serves me right for irritating Sheba. But the bright side is that because my beans must feed Sheba half a tablet every evening for a week, she gets some fish paste called Redro, which is really, really very nice and we get some too. I wonder if I can start oozing my way closer.......... Furry friends, please hold thumbs that Sheba feels better soon - if only for my sake because I am the main target of her anger!

Much ado about nothing!

Our beans have been very busy - we know that they are concocting some sort of plans.... we are just not sure what they are doing. Actually, we think that they really don't know themselves, but watch this space, we are sure some sort of big announcement is coming..... we heard something about travel and us getting a catsitter. Will just have evesdrop...... so, to all our furry friends who have visited, we not being rude by not visiting your blogs - it's all our beans fault - all work and no play! We promise to visit soon and post more regularly.
