Let Me Out.

“Mrow”  (Let me out)

“Mrooooowwwww” (Let me ouuuuuuutttttt)

“Rowwwwl” (Fine then.  I’ll ask She Who Knits)

“Maoooow?”  (She Who Knits, you are much more kind and benvolent than Her With The Camera, will you free me from this glass and wood prison and let me roam free?)

I wish!

  6. kate says:

    Oh how very ‘cat’, the number of times we have moved with a cat and they go from window to window grumbling, yesterday’s post of Raymond complaining loudly yes had me chuckling – enjoy your new home =^.,.^= xx

  7. Marillyn Ketcherside says:

    My young black Coalby agrees with Raymond. If Raymond finds a way out, Coalby wants to know the secret. He even trots along behind the dogs, trying to slip out with them.

    It looks like he has lots to watch and now you have all those window seats for him to sit, lay and just enjoy watching the outdoors.

  13. gaia says:

  14. Sarah says:

    Love this post!!!! A few thoughts:

    1. I don’t blame Raymond – the outside looks beautiful (and sunny! I’ve just arrived home in hat, scarf, tights and arm warmers! Brrr!)
    2. Window seat = crochet heaven – enough said
    3. Love your crystal (and haircut) !
    Hope you are all settling in well – when do you start your new job?

    Much love,


  15. Lisa Ruff says:

    Ahh it’s so hard to resist such sad pleading eyes!! I have a German Shepherd who does the same thing with his sweet eyes all the while wrapping mom around his paw!! Best wishes as you and your family settle in your new home!! Hugz to Raymond!!! Lisa and Bear

  16. baamekniits says:

    and it looks so nice and sunny out there in that beautiful garden, he has his pleading look down pat!

  17. Carol says:

    Oh Ramond, I do feel for you BUT it is for your own good, you know it is and it is because they love you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much they want to keep you safe. If you are a good boy you will be let out……….. well………… when they say so.
    Carol xx

  18. Oh poor Raymond!! Jazz is a house cat but likes to sit on the kitchen window ledge outside to sun himself when the weather is nice. He did fall off once this summer and my son came running in shrieking “Mummy!!! Jazz fell out the window!!!” Thankfully, as cats usually land on all four paws and we are only one storey up, Jazz was fine. He was just yowling to be let in. Needless to say he is a lot more careful and hasn’t fallen out again. I think he was chasing flies and forgot where the edge of the window ledge was.
    Raymond, you just need to be a little more patient sweetie. I’m sure that ‘She who knits’ and ‘She with the camera’ will let you out to investigate once you are familiar with your new home.
    Best wishes to all of you.
    Zahra and Jazz

  19. Sarah says:

    Wow, I think the house looks lovely – and so does Raymond – he looks so sweet when he’s begging!
    You look as if you’re settling in well and relaxed!
    Good luck in your new home.
    Sarah x

  20. Val says:

    Aw! So glad to hear you all are settling in, and love the photos, as always!

  21. stocki says:

    Look at all that beautiful glass and sunshine! I’m freezing here in one of the first frosts of the season… Awww Raymond… it will be worth it when you eventually do go out…all that discovery and adventure awaits! :)x

  22. kashi says:

    Your new home looks nice and open and tropical. Poor Raymond. Hopefully he is a good boy when he finally gets to go out. Hope you are all adjusting to your new home well.

  23. cazz says:

    Oh Raymond i feel you’re pain it does look lovely outside!

  24. Netty says:

    Ooooh, he is so sweet! Look at those eyes! Very sad he can’t go out and discover but he can soon enough. I gave in to my cat’s begging eyes 6 months ago when we moved country and let him out after a few days…. he got lost. After almost 2 weeks we got a call from a lady who had seen our flyer and said he was at the school ground a few miles away. We rushed over and he was soooo glad to see us, he was very disorientated and sad. And we were soooo happy! I will never give in again if it is for their own good!! Hang in there, Raymond!!

  25. Tickety-boo says:

    Is he annoying you yet?! Poor His Nibbs he’s just wanting to see if the natives are friendly (or have food).

  26. Anne Marie says:

    Ah, wonderful Raymond! Siamese whole demeanour is so expressive, together with their many voices. It was a nightmare keeping mine in for 4 weeks when I just ‘inherited’ him. Also great to see him finally achieve his freedom from prison!

  27. Teje says:

    Hi Alice! Thanks for lovely photos! I hope that Raymond feels soon at home and if you leave him out he doesn’t go too far – thinking about the stories how cats have travelled far away back to their old homes. Have a wonderful weekend at your new home!
    xxx Teje

  28. Terrie says:

    This made me smile sooooo much! x

  29. Carole says:

    You got to love his determination! It looks lovely outside too, no wonder he wants to go and see his new patch.

    Loving the new hair🙂

  30. LOL – that last picture … “I will put you under my flirting spell and you will do what I want”

    I moved from British Columbia, where my cats had the run of wonderful outdoor areas fro 7 am to 4 pm … to Baltimore, Maryland, where – believe it or not – it’s illegal to let your cats roam free!!
    However, I moved here in a snow storm, and on the 3rd night saw two foxes or coyotes playing in the snow .. and realized it was safer for them indoors. We’ve been here almost 2 years and they’ve adjusted well.

  31. meredithjean says:

    You are good cat mothers. Raymond is just too hilarious. Your new home looks gorgeous. I hope you feel settled and safe in no time. My mother says you know when you new house is your ‘home’ when you can make your way around it in the night without bumping into anything. All the very best you 3 xxxxxxxxxx

  32. mary i says:

    loved it! your pics and commentary made my day.. BE PATIENT RAYMOND. Your day will come…

  33. Hannah says:

    Sure looks like you all moved to a beautiful place. Lovely pictures.

  34. D Markey says:

    So cute. I totally get it. Our little Scottie can look so expectantly at us when we are leaving the house. We’ve been known to just take him for a ride around the block in the car, so he wouldn’t be disappointed.

  35. Maria Shaikh says:

    The last pic is just gorgeous…Raymond’s looking at you with such love and adoration in his eyes…he’s a sweetie!!

  36. Sarah says:

    The expressions on Raymond’s face are priceless! What a sweet, sweet kitty. Glad to see you all are settling in.

  37. Lu Douglas says:

    Oh Raymond, you just KNOW how to speak English but your mum knows what’s best! And wow, that hair -yours, not Raymonds!! 🙂 You look fab, Alice B. Our cats thought they were people as they never strayed from us when we moved. I was given heaps of ideas on how to keep them from straying but didn’t need it…thank goodness! They were never far from our feet or chair and Simba used to have to have some part of himself touching some part of us. Ah, the joy of pets! Happy new home, A.R.K.

  38. minaandme says:

    Ok, I must say this is one of the most darling posts I’ve ever seen. Ever. 😀

  39. Angie says:

    Loving Raymond – but I have to say it’s not kind of you to tease us with a glimpse at a wip and not talk about it!!🙂 WHAT ARE YOU KNITTING??!

  40. Karen Theron says:

    He is sooo adorable! He looks very content, despite wanting to go out. I hope he and his ‘staff’ will be very happy in their new home

  41. Pam says:

    You cut your hair! It looks cute. I have always loved your curly somewhat unruly hair. I think it’s sexy! Mine is straight and lifeless. The grass is always greener…

    Still gah-gah for Raymond here in Texas. I posted an entry today that mentions your part of the world. GAH.

  42. Rachel D. says:

    Dear Raymond, just be a little more patient because very soon you will get used to your new home after what you will be able to discover the garden. Sending you lots of hugs from Belgium.

  43. Kat says:

    LOL! I know he’s just driving you nuts. He’s such a pretty cat I’d probably never let him out.

  44. Love the look on his face in the last shot. We used to call that ‘Little bitty eyes’.🙂 The Goatmother has serious envy of your crystal! Your new place looks awesome, by the way!

  45. Rachel says:

    I can see him really saying the commentary bits!

    Poor Raymond!

  46. Alyson says:

    Ooooh, I love your hair in these pics! Also, that’s quite a crystal! I usually wear a small clear quartz or amethyst around my neck, and my school kids (I’m a teacher) are always so intrigued. Who doesn’t like pretty things? I have to say, your Raymond is much better behaved than my little fur-monsters would have been. One of mine scratches the furniture until he gets what he wants, another sticks his claws into the arm of the unfortunate passerby, and another one might nip ankles. He looks so charming in these pictures.🙂

  47. Kath says:

    I know every one of those cat meows….. and they know you know what they are saying. Your new hme looks homely and he knows where he is loved. Keep on knitting…..

  48. Julie says:

    Poor guy, he really does look likehe is pleading. bless him.

  49. Liza says:

    Sarah in Texas

  51. Brenda says:

    How cute is he! At least he has lovely big windows to let him look out. I hope he is a good boy when he finally does get to go outside.

  52. Penelope10 says:

    So, will Raymond Boy, be a housekitty now? Great photos! Nothing like that Siamese chatter!

  53. Jess says:

    HAHA that’s really funny…your other post of Raymond rowling all the way to your new home had be laughing. That’s a beautiful blanket! Where can I find one?

  54. Joanna says:

    Just catching up on your last couple of blogs. Ah poor Raymond, don’t worry you’ll be allowed out soon. Look forward to seeing more of your new home Alice, it looks lovely and light. Love the colours KB has chosen for her blanket.

  55. Annemiek says:

    Aaaaaww! Raymond is sooo cute! Siamese cats are so beautiful, but so noisy aren’t they? I’m looking forward seeing some photos of your new house with your knitted and crochet goodness around! I’m reading back all your old posts and it’s a lovely way to pass the time. All the colours and positiveness make me really happy🙂

  56. Rebecca says:

    Told ya so! Howling and yowling his way to his new home made me laugh out loud when I saw the photos of him in the car! Worth it all Raymond. She who knits and She with the camera know best – no really they do. All the best luck in the world for you in your new surroundings. B x

  57. Becky says:

    In the pics, is your hair pinned up in the back or trimmed shorter than last winter? I think it looks quite nice with the shorter curls around your face. (a random post for sure, but want to send you greetings in your new place from us in our new place.) From Ana and Becky. p.s. Ana is now the proud owner of one wild kitten of the mutt variety. 🙂 We are having a lot of fun with “Emily”.
