Sheesh what a day.......

They spoil all the fun.... Today mum heard me clattering around and came to see what I was doing... She found me wapping a flutterby... Mum said Ohhhhh no jasper don't kill the flutterby and would you believe she took it away...
Mum put it in a pot but.......
Wapp te he I spotted it....
Mum rescued it again and put it in a high basket....I don't know if you can see it because it has its wings folded up. It sat like this for a long time and mum thought it was too late but it opened its wings and flew up high.. free...
Then would you believe when I look the other way... There was an introoder on my patch would you believe.... He was eating what the neighbour put out, can you see him licking his lips....
He watched us closely and do you know I did not chase him.....
Sheesh what a day.. ope yours is good my friends... Hugs GJ xx

Oh no...the poor butterfly. They are so pretty but I can see why you would want to play with it. What a pretty kitty friend. :)

Hi, Ginger Jasper!
I know you just wanted to play with the butterfly! Hmmm...
And that kitty sure enjoyed a good meal!
Have a great day!
Kisses and hugs

Hello GJ,

What a day indeed, thanks for sharing with us. You look very handsome. We still recall the day you had your 'lion furstyle' ....

P:S: Momo loves catchin and eating flies.
She's very quick and I can't stop her!

Aw GJ, you just couldn't catch a break today, could you?

BeadedTail said...

You had quite a day with your mum taking away your flutterby and then an introoder watching you. It's good you didn't waste any energy in chasing him. We hope your weekend is better!

Sweet Praline said...

Poor baby, you just wanted to play with the flutterby! You are looking quite handsome today!

I hope mom Carol is doing well.

Jenner said...

After the whole box fiasco, your flutterby was taken away as well? Oh GJ, what a hard life you lead. Good boy for not chasing the other ginger kitty.

Your mom took away your playmate?

That's a good looking intruder.

Punapippuri said...

Humans are such spoilsports. I am sure it would have been very crunchy. And put up less of a fight than the intruder.

Oh, GJ. Do you know what came into our house today? A bird. Yep. A house finch with a pretty red breast. He (we know it was a he, 'cause his chest was so red) flew up high and got between the shades that cover a big window. Moma was able to catch him by stadning on the couch with a small towel (she's had practice, since she leaves the door open so we can go out on the deck) and then she released him back to the outdoors. Now. You must realize that I LOVE birds. It was quite exciting to watch Moma catch that little one. I bet you would've loved it, too. Think of the fun we could've had!

What a day!

We are encouraged to catch stuff!

Humans are rather good at spoiling bits of fun, aren't they?! We have been told in no uncertain terms that flutterbyes are a big no-no. However, we did all work together to catch a mouse the other day!!!

That intruder looks like he might not be such a bad guy. What do you think, GJ? Is that why you didn't chase him?

Purrs,
The Chans

We think this is what will be written in GJ's Daily Diary:

Dear Diary:
Some days you win. Some days you lose.
Today I lost. Today the flutterby won.
That's life.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Never mind GP. you will find something another day,

Have a wonderful day,
Yvonne,

Gj, we like yoor noo ginger friend!
Have a great weekend.

Gattina said...

For just a second I thought it was you in a new haircut, lol ! Must be funny to see both of you side by side.

Kea said...

GJ, you can come here and catch butterflies and moths...Derry's great at doing that and he loves to crunch them up. Mom just says it's extra protein. :-P

Does your introoder cat have a home, we wonder? We're glad he's got food, at any rate!

That must have been very exciting! I like your next door neighbor. Like you, he looks very British! (Sorry about calling you a girl! I don't know what got into me. -- I once called Huffle a boy, too!?!?!)

Cindy said...

That butterfly must have been scared! I can't believe you had an uninvited guest and didn't say so to him.

The Monkeys said...

It sounds like you had a very eventful day, GJ! We sometimes get moths in our house in the summer, so you're welcome to come help us hunt them!

Old Kitty said...

Awwwww beautiful and ever so adorable GJ!! You are just so cute!! Look at your gorgeous little face!!! Me and Charlie are glad that mum rescued that lovely flutterby!!! Awwww fly away little flutterby!!

We also think your kitty neighbour is lovely!!!! Yay that he's got a nice meal too!! Take care

Angel and Kirby said...

Mom agrees that you do not eat flutterby's.

Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

You had a busy day, GJ!!!!!!!! We loved that you shared it with us.

Have a wonderful weekend....xxxxxxx

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Our momma will let our kitties to eat the flys when they come into the house but those flutter-bys - well, we hear they are PURRty special, yes, they are, so we suggest you prowl around an' find a disgusting bug to kill an' eat. Your momma will like you for that!

GJ, pop ove to our hose some evening...we have our mothing station up and ready to go! They are delicious.

Say, just WHO is that Ornj intruder?

Purrs to your Mum; our went off to work this morning to give it a whirl.

Princess Jasmine said...

I bet the introoder kitty was watching you wapping the flutterby and seeing if he could learn some tricks. Perhaps he wants to be your friend xx

Baby Patches said...

Oh noes an introoder and a flutterby being taken from you, what a day indeed handsome. I hopes it got better wif some tasty noms and treats. Purrrrrrrrrrs

Cezar and Léia said...

Oh Jasper, what a day indeed!
But hey...you could play with that kitty, be friends! It's nice, isn't it?
Happy weekend,

It would be OK to play with the butterfly, GJ, but they are too pretty to hurt. And that intruder - wouldn't you like to make friends? Maybe he would share whatever that was that was so tasty.

Eric and Flynn said...

That is not fair taking your flutterby away. We prefer moths, more meat on them! Did you let the introoder stay because he is ginger too?

Furkidsmom said...

We're glad the flutterby is okay. Mom says we can only watch them, not play with them.

That introoder is pretty brave to stare at the flashy box like that.

Brian said...

I think that flutterby might be back GJ...and so will that good looking introoder!

GreatGranny said...

Sorry you lost the flutterby, GJ, maybe tomorrow a new one will flutter by. Your new friend is a handsome kitty and must have had a good meal.

Marg said...

Goodness, you have had a tough day GJ. Love the name flutterby. We did see it on the plant. We are kind of glad it got away. We are very norty too and catch those fluttetbys. Be careful of that introoder GJ. Take care. Hope tomorrow is better. But maybe it is already tomorrow there.

Kari said...

You did a very fine thing by letting the flutterby go, dearest boy. Maybe you'll be rewarded by a nice leggy spider!
Say, that intruder is a beautifully marked ginger. Do you think that he might be a nice cat friend? Sometimes it's nice to be in the company of ones own kind. You are looking just so delightful. That sweet, expressive face of yours is just too cute. You are a treasure, love. Hope your mum is feeling better each day. Our mum has been meaning to send her something since her surgery. But Gran has had mum busy. Love to all.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

wow you DID "have a DAY!!!"

I could see the butterfly too!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Nuka was pouncing after a butterfly earlier today but she is no where near as coordinated as you are GJ! That kitty looks like he could be a distant relative. Hope mum is continuinig to mend. Have a great weekend.
