Gizmo's News


Hi welcome to Gizmos news.
  If you didn't know i'm Gizmo and I am a Maine Coon cat (whatever that is!).  I live with my human slaves and my other cat friends. 
I thought you might like to hear about all the things I get up to (which is a lot!), I am a bit of a detective and always checking things out with my buddy Pickle.  I have asked mum to help me write as i'm not very good at writing with my paws yet!

Lol look Yoda looks like a little otter when she is asleep :)

Saturday 2nd November 2013

Everything is back to normal now after the earlier events.  Womble has settled back in and everyone is happy to have him back (even Crumble).  He is big though, he's nearly as big as some of us grown up cats and he is still only a baby!

I am getting scared at the moment as there is lots of bangs outside at night and I don't like it.  Mum says they are something called fireworks and she doesn't like them either so we snuggle up together :)

Monday 28th October 2013

I was really worried today as mum got the cat basket out and left the house with it empty.  That can only mean one thing.....someone new is arriving.  I was pacing up and down worried in case its another kitten.  I have only just got over the other kittens.

.....Anyway she came back later and I am more confused than ever.  She has bought someone back, it's Womble Pickles little boy.  He left months ago and we thought we would never see him again but here he is back ago.  I am so confused!!!!  Some of the others weren't pleased to see him at all Crumble has been hissing and growling at him even though he is her brother!  When he left he was a little kitten, now he's almost as big as me!!  I did manage to get to speak to him and he said he has been living with Kovu (one of Chilli's babies) at mum's mum's house with some other cats.  But he said yesterday a new really big boy arrived.  Womble says he looks a bit like him but is called Barack and he is really shy.  Anyway Womble told me this morning he got dropped off in his carrier at the unmentionable place beginning with a V and they made him go to sleep and when he woke up he felt a bit different.  He says he's not sure what happened but he feels like something's missing........

Friday 18th October 2013

Woohoo a new order of cat food was delivered today....no don't be silly it's not the food we're excited about (well we are a bit!), it's the box!  We kitties love boxes to play in.  Crumble and Yoda keep getting in it and then jumping out and trying to scare me.

Wednesday 9th October 2013

Ha ha Rhubarb is in trouble!  She is a very naughty tortie and is always getting into mischief!  Mum says she's the naughtiest cat we've ever had (phew that lets me off the hock then!).  She keeps going behind Nathan's TV in his room and knocking out all the wires.  Bad Rubes!


 Monday 7th October 2013

Okay I try to be nice, but no more Mrs nice kitty for me!!!  Why you ask?  Well today I came upstairs to find Yoda playing with my, yes MY, favourite shoelace.  Am cross now and have my best scowling face on!

Saturday 28th September 2013





Yoda is so cute :)  Everyone loves her even if she is crazy!  Pickle has adopted her as her child now as you can see and Yoda follows her around chirping to her.

Friday 27th September 2013

Mum has bought a new big scratching post for us all.  She seems to think it might stop Tully and Rhubarb destroying the sofa.  Haha shows what she knows!!  Can't see that working to be honest but anyway everyone seems to be having fun with it.  Haven't tried it myself, well not in front of the others but they don't seem to mind looking idiots especially Crumble who keeps running up and down it and sitting at the top like a little monkey!

Saturday 21st September 2013

Ooops I have given mum a stern talking to as she has not been updating my page for almost a year!!!!  Loads of things have happened in that time I can tell you.  We have had loads of new arrivals, some have stayed and some have moved on.  At the beginning of the year (or could have been last year, i'm a cat I don't understand time!!) Chilli decided to have babies.  Personally I was against it Chilli is mental and it could only bring more trouble but no-one listens to me!  Luckily she just had two babies Rhubarb and Frankie.  Mum wanted to keep both of them but dad said no so Rhubarb stayed and we found Frankie a very special home, although she stayed with us so long I thought maybe they had forgotten her but mum said they were moving to a new house so she stayed a bit longer.  Anyway everyone loved Rhubarb because one half of her face is black and one half is ginger.  Can't see the fascination myself, can you?
Anyway since then it seems to have kittens, kittens and more kittens!  In the summer I almost had a complete freak out as there were so many, I'm not very good at counting but mum said there were 16!  First Tully had babies....then a couple of days later Pickle did-which I was very disappointed by as Pickle is supposed to be my friend and I didn't think she would betray me like that :(  Anyway we have made friends again now so I'm happy again.  Then can you believe it if it wasn't bad enough the first time Chilli had kittens again.  What was even worse about that was not only were there hundreds of them (well 7!) they all looked like Chilli and were as crazy as her, nightmare.  Anyway eventually peace and harmony has been restored and everyone has gone to a new home......except Crumble who is Pickle's baby (and another half face!) and Yoda, who is a Chilli baby and a complete teeny tiny psycho....and they say i'm crazy! 

Not sure what else has happened.  I had another birthday last month, I am three now and supposed to be a grown up, yeah right like that's ever going to happen!!!

Monday 22nd October 2012

Happy Birthday Pickle, today she is 1!!!!

Sunday 14th October 2012

Yay Pickle is back!  She smells funny, I hope this doesn't mean what I think it does!

Saturday 13th October 2012

Oh no another kitten has gone, Stitch.  There is only Hector left now :(

Friday 12th October 2012

Today 2 of the babies have left to go to their new homes- Willow and Blue which is a bit sad as I was just starting to get used to them!

Saturday 6th October 2012

Pickle has gone off somewhere in the cat basket.  I hope she comes back soon, she is one of my pals!  She has been making a lot of noise and rolling around a lot.

Saturday 15th September 2012

Today the kittens all went out in the basket and I thought phew some peace at last....but they weren't gone for long!  Hector told me they went to the V.E.T. and they poked him with a big pointy thing.  He said it didn't hurt though.  Also Chilli is giving the kittens fly hunting lessons.  I don't think mum is going to be happy about this.....

Friday 14th September 2012

Today mum got cross with me because I chased Tequila.  I can't help it I like chasing the others.  Its fun and they don't mind, they know I am only playing.  Sometimes I just chase myself which everyone thinks is a bit weird!!!

Wednesday 12th September 2012




Hmmm I feel like someone is following me .........











Thursday 23rd August 2012

Today me, Pickle and Chilli saw a big moth so we all decided to see who could catch it first!  We ran all over the house chasing it, jumping on things, knocking things over (ooops sorry mum!) and then just at the last second Tully came along, grabbed it and ate it!!  After all our effort too :(

Monday 20th August 2012

Today is my birthday!!!  I am now 2yrs old but I still feel and act like a baby!!!

Friday 10th August 2012

Oh no the worst happened today :(  Mum and Chloe went out this morning with the cat basket.  They were gone for hours....when they came back there was another cat :(  I don't like new cats.  She is big too, much bigger than me.

Thursday 9th August 2012

Well the kittens have taken over the living room!  Everywhere I turn there is a kitten!  Chilli says i'm moaning about nothing because she really likes them.  She kept washing them and they follow her around.  I think they think she is their new mummy!  The little black one started eating some biscuits :)

Wednesday 8th August 2012

Kitten escape!!!  The kittens managed to break out of the arena into Chloe's room so mum said tomorrow they will have to move downstairs :(  Not good news for me, kittens scare me and they try and gang up on me!

Saturday 4th August 2012

Tully's kittens are 3 weeks old now and getting quite big.  They can climb in and out of the nest area now which is a bit worrying for me!


Thursday 2nd August 2012

Well much as I try to be the sensible one and not to get too involved sometimes I just can't help myself!!!! Today they put something in my massage centre which they called Catnip and it just makes me go all crazy and silly :)



Sunday 15th July 2012

I had a peek into Chloe's room today when I heard squeaking and it turns out Tully's kittens are still here!!!  I wasn't as scared of them as I was when she had kittens last time.  I did have a little hiss at Tully though just to let her know I am not amused!!!

Saturday 14th July 2012

Well today all excitement has broken out.  Tully after her odd behaviour yesterday went into Nathan's room this morning, jumped on his bed and started having her babies!!!!  So in the end they were born in the middle of his bed lol.  We all stayed out of the way and Chilli got really freaked out as she hasn't seen babies before.  In the end Tully has had 4 babies.  She has got a blue one, a silver tabby (like me!), a brown tabby (like Tully) and a black one.  They all look little and fuzzy.  The little black one opened his eyes a couple of hours after he was born!

Friday 13th July 2012

Tully has been acting weird today.  She keeps jumping in and out of boxes and trying to get into small spaces.  she just paces about everywhere.

Wednesday 27th June 2012

Mum went to the shop today and bought some of my favourite biscuits but she also bought home this odd square thing which she called 'scales'.  She said that it was time to find out how much we all weigh.  Well how embarrassing is that!!  Anyway I went first and I am 4.2kg or 9lblb.  Then it was Custards turn haha he is 7.1kg or 15.5lb.  Next was Pickle who is 8 months old, she was 4.3kg or 9 1/2lb (mum says much bigger than I was at her age).  Then Chilli suprised us as she was 3.5kg or 7.8lb.  She is only 6 months old and still looks little compared to us.  Mum says i'll be the baby soon :(  We didn't weigh Tully as she has got babies in her, her time will come.....

Sunday 24th June 2012

I curled up in bed with mum today for hours.  She was reading and I snuggled right up next to her and everytime she stroked me I purred for her.

Saturday 23rd June 2012

Tully is starting to look around for suitable places to have her babies.  I think she has a couple of weeks yet but she says she needs to be ready.  She said she doesn't want to have them in front of us but Chilli keeps going in all her hiding places.  Chloe is not very happy because Tully says she wants to have her babies in her room like last time....I wonder how many babies she is going to have?

Sunday 17th June 2012

Yay they have come back :) 

Saturday 16th June 2012

We got left by ourselves today.  Nathan gave us some extra food which was a bit weird because we had only just been fed....but i'm not complaining!!  Mum and all the family packed up a bag and went out in the car and then they didn't come back.  They never leave us!!  Custard said they had left and were never coming back and we might have to eat Chilli :(  Luckily there was lots of food and biscuits still and when I went upstairs I found mum had left me a pile of my favourite biscuits on the bed yum yum......I hope they come back soon.

Thursday 14th June 2012

Mum says it looks like Tully is going to have babies.  Oh no I remember the last ones.  They kept jumping on me.  Pickle still jumps on me sometimes!

Monday 11th June 2012


It's Nathans birthday today so everyone had cake.  Nathan had some things which were wrapped in paper and when he opened them he threw the paper on the floor and Pickle, Chilli and I kept jumping on it and crawling under it.  It was fun!!!  I like paper and boxes :)

Satuarday 9th June 2012

Chilli keeps climbing the curtains and being naughty.  Mum is cross with her...and me for showing her how to do it.  Chilli is clever though she can unhook the curtains so they fall down.

Saturday 2nd June 2012



Things have been quiet the last couple of weeks.
Today we got a new toy.  It is green with lots of tubes in it that mum puts biscuits in and then we have to get them out with our paws.  I am quite good at it but can't do the really high tubes.  Luckily though Pickle and Chilli are really clever and they get all the biscuits out and let me share.  Custard gets grumpy though because he can't seem to do it at all....I think his paws are too fat lol.



Saturday 12th May 2012

Today Tully has come back!  She smells funny though.  I had a good sniff of her and hissed at her because of the strange smell.  She says she has been to visit her boyfriend Obi......I have a bad feeling about what that means!!!

Friday 11th May 2012

This afternoon mum and Chloe took Chilli out in the cat basket.  I got a bit scared....first Tully now baby Chilli.  Later Chilli came back :)  She said she had visited her old house and her old family...i'm glad she decided to come back to us x

Wednesday 9th May 2012

Oh no Tully has started making weird noises again and rolling round the floor.  She says she wants to see her boyfriend.  I don't know whats up with her but I don't like it, she kept trying to rub herself round me and i'm a girl!!!  Anyway this afternoon mum and Chloe put her in the cat basket and took her away.  I'm a bit sad now though and Pickle was looking for her.  I hope she comes back :(

Saturday 5th May 2012

Yuk those kittens are disgusting.  Someone left the toilet seat up and Chilli and Pickle were playing in the toilet!!!


Sunday 15th April 2012

Well today we were all crazy!!!!  We were all running up and down stairs, jumping on the furniture, playing in the bath and sink.  It was so much fun!!  Eventually though it got too tiring so I curled up for a snooze on the chest of drawers (not before I had had another attack on the curtains!) and Pickle and Chilli curled up together on top of each other on the bed

Saturday 14th April 2012


Well it had to happen sooner or later......Chilli jumped in the bath when it was full.  I had a bit of a chuckle because she was absolutely
soaking.  Everyone kept telling her not to jump in but she didn't listen.  Afterwards though when I spoke to her she said it was quite good fun and she liked swimming in there!!!!  She said she might even try it again!!

This afternoon dad gave us some smelly fish (tuna he said).  I like tuna and so did Tully, Custard and Chilli.  Pickle didn't though she said it was yuk....she is soooo weird!

Wednesday 11th April 2012

Pickle and Chilli kept playing today.  They are always disturbing me.  They run up and now the stairs and jump on me when i'm asleep.  I quite like Chilli now.  She is quite fun and she is always purring and chirping.  Mum keeps saying maybe she can teach Pickle how to purr as she only purrs if she feeds from Tully.

Monday 9th April 2012

Oh no, the noise!!!! Tully is making a weird noise today and keeping rolling round the floor.  Everyone is keeping their distance from her as she keeps rubbing herself round them.  I don't know what has got into her but mum keeps says 'no Tully you can't have any more babies yet'!!!

Saturday 7th April 2012

Today we all played ball in the bath.  I like chasing the ball up and down.  Pickle likes getting in the sink like me and playing with the water under the tap.  She flicks it everywhere though and makes a mess on the floor!

Friday 6th April 2012

Chilli and Pickle definately seem to be getting on ok.  Pickle even let Chilli share the chicken on the table!!  Pickle doesn't eat cat food (weird!!!!) she only eats cat biscuits and chicken so every day mum (or sometimes someone else) puts chicken on the table for Pickle and then throws us a few bits.  Mum says only kittens can go on the table although I keep trying to say I am a kitten!!!

Thursday 5th April 2012

Today was weird.  Mum went to work but dad and Nathan and Chloe were at home!  We all got shut downstairs in the living room for a while.  It seemed like ages.  When we got out Chloe's room looked different, it is definately a different colour.  Tully and Pickle kept sniffing the wall.  Chilli seems ok now, even Pickle has stopped hissing and growling.  The three of us played chase and then we played with the ribbon.

Friday 30th March 2012

I had a big cuddle in bed with mum this morning.  I curled up on the pillow and padded her head.  Later though Chilli was having a cuddle.  She was curled up on mums shoulder purring.  She doesn't seem so bad now but I still don't want to play with her.  She says she doesn't mind all the humans love her anyway.

Wednesday 28th March 2012

Well when I woke up this morning I hoped it was a bad dream but no Chilli is still here!!!  Pickle doesn't like her either.  She has never seen a new cat before as she was born here.

Tuesday 27th March 2012

Oh no I am not happy today!!!!  Mum got the cat basket out earlier.  She left it in the hall and Pickle and Tully kept climbing all over it.  I don't like the basket though.  Both my best friends before Bailey and Stitch went in the basket and never came back and it made everyone cry :(

Today though no-one was in it when they went out but when they came back there was someone else in it!!!  She is a little fluff ball and wanted to play with my toys.  She says her name is Chilli but I don't like her.  I hissed and growled but mum told me not to be silly.

Saturday 24th March 2012

Today we had some visitors.  I was a bit scared because I don't like new people but i'm also really nosy so I couldn't help having a look.  They stayed all day and didn't go until the evening.

Thursday 22nd March 2012

Today Pickle is 5 months old!!!  I remember when she was first born.  She was so tiny and I didn't know what she was.  I kept growling and hissing everytime I saw her and her brothers and sisters.  She is my buddy now though :)

Tuesday 13th March 2012

This morning I woke mum up by putting my paw on her face.  I got a cuddle but she did tell me off for waking up too early!  How am I suppose to know what early is...I was awake so everyone else should be :)

I have decided I don't like the things hanging up at the windows (mum calls them curtains), they block my view so I can't see out very well so I have decided to try and pull them down.....its not working very well as I keep getting my claws caught in them but i'll keep trying!

Sunday 11th March 2012


I went into the bathroom this morning since it was painted (whatever that is!) and wow it was a different colour on the shiny tiles...but even better they are black now and when I looked at them I could see another cat peering out at me which is a bit strange, maybe it is a secret entrance to another world!  I will have to investigate further.

Tully and Pickle were having a bit of a fight this afternoon.  I tried not to join in (but it is really hard!).  I think Pickle was trying to get a drink but Tully says she is too big now.

Saturday 10th March 2012

Today I was a bit disgruntled as I got shut downstairs with the others this morning which wasn't fair.  My humans said something about
painting and not wanting cat furr in it but I don't know what they mean :)  Anyway later when I was allowed back upstairs I was quite happily looking out of the window when someone knocked on the front door.  I don't like people I don't know so everytime they knocked I growled at them!

Wednesday 7th March 2012


Today the weather was windy which always gets us all excited so we were even more crazy than usual.

Later mum came us some chicken for lunch which is one of my favourite foods (actually I like all foods!) and me, Pickle and Tully are quite smart because we can eat with our paws.

Monday 5th March 2012

There was a big splash today.....yes thats right it was Pickle jumping in the bath!  That kitten is a nightmare!  She just jumped straight it, she didn't fall or anything.  She was soaking and kept shaking herself everywhere.  Everyone just laughed.  I haven't been in the bath but I do like putting my paws in and also playing with the water in the sink.

Sunday 4th March 2012


Well today is Sunday so everyone is here :)  Last night mum and dad didn't shut us downstairs so we had the house to play in.  I was chasing up and down stairs for a bit before I went to sleep.  Then later I woke up, it was still dark but I wanted to see mum.  She was asleep but I soon woke her up padding her and purring.  She gave me a big fuss and I got in the bed under the covers with her.

The rest of today I have done lots of things, played with my ribbon, chased Pickle, jumped on Custard and eaten some food.  When my slaves had dinner they gave me some of their chicken.  But Pickle couldn't wait so she jumped up on the table and helped herself to the food!

Saturday 3rd March 2012

Today mum, Nathan and Chloe were out for quite a long time and when they came back Custard got in the car for a sniff around and when he came in he looked a bit worried.  He said he had seen the cat basket in the car and there were new cats into.  Luckily we all breathed a sigh of relief when mum told us they weren't coming to live with us but going to Pickles sisters house instead.

Sunday 26th February 2012

I was in the sink today in the bathroom when I noticed that if I stand up on my back legs I can see into the big shiny thing on the fall and it turns out there is another cat living in there!!!! It looks the same as me I think and when I moved it moved to.  Mum laughed at me for looking in a 'mirror' but I don't know what that is.  I must tell Pickle and she can help me investigate! 

Saturday 25th February 2012

I got worried today as all the slaves went out and took Pickle with them.  I get scared when they go out with one of my friends as I don't know where they are going :(  Pickle told me later that she had been to see her sister Belle but she doesn't like Belle as much as me so she was glad to get home!
