What an adventure

My lovely friends, I am so sorry I haven't been to visit you much lately but I am on my way home now after exploring the Antarctic. I have to tell you that nothing turned out as expected.

Initially it was quite dull, with the cheeky squirrels and I resorting to long nights of scrabble to keep us busy. Then I discovered a very interesting igloo made of cheesebergers.

Much to my surprise it was inhabited by the scary moon mice that I escaped from during my luna adventure. Apparently this is their winter habitat when they're not on the moon. They weren't too happy about seeing me again and made it very clear that they were going to get me back for all their luscious little mice cousins I had eaten over the years.

Luckily my evil sister Fazbeard turned up to rescue me right in the nick of time. Scary Berry!

Still in the Antarctic ...

Go visit

The wonderful Barb at Skittles' Place introduced me to a fun MeMeMe site called, appropriately, Curious as a Cat. Go and have a look.

My goodness

I am so busy exploring new worlds...
I forgot it was my birthday last week.
I am 6!
This is how many 6 is (I had to ask the
girl human because I don't know how to count).

Today in Antarctica

The days and nights are merging together here in Antarctica so I have been playing quite a bit of scrabble with the cheeky squirrels who have been pulling my sledge. Back home in England I would have to say we are not the best of friends, as I do tend to find the squirrels think they own my garden and treat it like it's one big party zone. Sometimes they literally go nuts.

Nevertheless, we are getting on okay and playing loads of scrabble to help keep boredom at bay. This is my name score. What's yours?

My Scrabble© Score is: 29.
What is your score? Get it here.

Thanks to lovely Lady Banana for this one.

Also, the Antarctic is not what I expected! Did you know, for instance, that unlike the giant Icebergers in the North, Antarctica is full of giant Cheesebergers?

Now that does make me wonder what else I am going to find here? FAZ

Meow Like a Pirate Day

Don't forget to scroll down for my Wordless Wednesday post


Fifteen men on a dead man's chest
Yo, Ho, Ho and a bottle of rum

I am Faz's evil pirate sister and I have taken
over her house whilst she is away in
Antarctica.

Her humans are now my slaves and I
might even make then walk the plank.

Will Faz come back in time to rescue them?

I hope everything is OK back home in Wimbledon?

My Team - The Colts

I know very little about American Football but nevertheless, I have taken the Zoolatry challenge and am now part of the NFL (National Feline League) and my team is the Indianapolois Colts. Whilst I am in Antarctica my team will be playing and scoring touchdowns (I think that's what they're supposed to do) and, hopefully, winning.


Yay the Colts!

Yay Zoolatry!

The adventure begins!

I've arrived in Antarctica.
We're at base camp and our mission is to reach the South Pole, following in the footsteps of Scott of the Antarctic. Sadly, Scott's mission did not end well, although he and his team were extraordinarily brave. These days, however, we have much better equipment like my snow truck below and I have stocked up on a year's supply of cat munchies and tuna. I also have special anti-freeze ingredients in my litter tray to save embarrassment (have you ever tried burying your doings in ice - it's just not possible).
Wish me luck.

Antarctica here I come


The human is better and my plans are back on track for my visit.

In the meantime this beautiful work of art was done for me by Maggie and Zoey as a present and gives you a very good impression of what Antarctica is like.


1. It is very white (which means if I lie on my back and show my tummy you won't be able to see me).
2. There is loads of ice (even the icicles underneath me won't melt).
3. It is very beautiful.


I can't wait to get there. FAZ

Sorry Guys

There will be a short blogging break whilst the girl human recovers from the flu.

I have to be constantly at her side to keep her warm and will have to postpone my planned Antarctic adventure for a few days.

p.s. I do look rather cute in my nurse's outfit though.

Looks like I won't be the first cat in Antarctica

Look what my blogging pal Rashbre told me:

"You know you'll be following in brave pawsteps.

Since the post-WW2 base was set up, Tubby the cat arrived and then later eight-week-old Tiddles from the Falkland Islands who now has a small monument at the north of the Goudier Island.

First post war female feline was named Bridget then changed to Dizzy after befriending Peso the mongrel.

Check out purr-n-fur for more."

It just goes to show how brave and smart we felines really are. Purrs FAZ

Still preparing

Here's me practising getting my toesies icy cold in preparation for my Antarctic adventure

I think I might have to get some snowshoes cause it gets pretty nippy
(that's cold nippy not catnip nippy, sadly)

And a tent to sleep in (we can use it to play tent wars when I get back)


But I am not so keen on the idea of those huskies.

Maybe I can get a team of cheeky squirrels to pull my sled instead.

Antarctica from space

Pretty isn't it? But does it look feline friendly?

The Antarctic


Did you know that Antarctica is the coldest, driest and windiest continent, and has the highest average elevation of all the continents (I am not sure what that means but it does sound very impressive)?


Since there is little precipitation (e.g. rain type stuff) except at the coasts, the interior of the continent is technically the largest desert in the world - WOW! (Note to self: Remember to take something to drink and eat.)


There are no permanent human or feline residents and there is no evidence of any existing or pre-historic indigenous population. Only cold-adapted plants and animals survive there, including penguins, fur seals, mosses and lichens. I wonder if I will see any of these things on my next big adventure?

Two quick things


Boy oh boy, we've been really busy this last week; so apologies to everyone because I haven't had a chance to visit you as much as I would like.

Two things to tell you:

1. Some people have asking if we are moving. We are not moving away from Wimbledon but we are buying an apartment at the seaside to visit on the weekend. That's why we've been doing loads of visits.

2. Following my recent adventure in space I did a poll (thanks to those who voted) to see where I should go next. It seems most of you want me to go to Antarctica, which is every exciting, so that will be my next adventure.

I have been sitting in front of the fridge with the door open trying to get myself acclimatised (acclimated - for my US friends). I will let you know more very soon.
Love FAZ

My latest seaside adventure


We went apartment hunting this weekend in St Leonard's near Hastings. I got to stay in our room whilst the humans were out and about. This is a picture of one of the art deco apartment buildings shaped like a ship overlooking the pebble beach near where we want to live.

When the humans got home I'd disappeared. What they didn't know was that I'd found a little hole in the cupboard that led into the roof, so I decided to explore.

It was very exciting as there was a lots of interesting smells and spiders to eat.

They were panic stricken and trying desperately to find me, thinking that they had left a window or door open and I had escaped and got lost. Eventually, at supper time, I came out to see them and let them know I was safe.

I got double helpings of munchies, so I must remember to play hide and seek with them again some time.

I love blogging!


One of my favourite 'never miss' bloggers - Barb at Skittle's Place - gave me this award. It was designed by her to "Award people who shine their light throughout the Blogosphere. Some do it with humor, others with creativity, and others with their kind and thoughtful natures."

The best bit is I get to pass it on to my other two 'never miss' blogging pals:

Empress Bee - always blogging with charm, grace and humour
Daisy the Curly Cat - she makes me laugh every day

Thanks girls - all three of you really brighten up my life.
