Lots of Autumn pictures, the kitties and a cute hedgehog

By now it really looks like Autumn here. Back in the beginning of September, it was just a few leaves here and there, while everything was still green. But within the last two weeks, the leaves really started dropping fast. The temperatures we’re having are great though! Very warm in the afternoons. 20°C / 68°F to 25°C / 77°F and sunny every day. Only the mornings can be quite foggy, and the temperatures overnight and the mornings drop to around 10°C / 50°F or 7°C / 44.6F.

During the day, I don’t even put the heating on.

Foggy Fall Morning

This is one of the foggy early mornings these days. But as soon as that clears, the sun comes out and we have beautiful sunny Autumn days.

Since the afternoons have been so warm, we put everything outside for the cats and us of course, and we’re able to leave the balcony door open and the windows too.

But even if it’s too cold to be out, the cats still have sunny spots to hang out at if they want.

We have a sweet little hedgehog we often see wandering around in the garden at night, so it was always too dark to get a pic or video. But I was lucky on Saturday and got a lovely video of him/her digging for worms and looking for slugs/snails. He found quite a bit and I hope this sweetie had a nice full tummy afterwards. Unfortunately, the video always loses lots of quality once it’s uploaded to YouTube, even though I record it in full HD.

I picked up the kitties meds from the Vet and I always go through this park to avoid the busy street with my bicycle. This awesome and huge tree is so lovely! It’s so big, I can’t even get it all into the frame (I also can’t go back much farther either…). This tree already looked huge like that when I was a little kid (I was born in 1980). I really wonder how old it really is. When this park was founded sometime in the late 1800s, there were only fields and farms with lots of trees already in place. So this tree could have easily been there before the park.

The sunsets we’re getting in fall are stunning as well! Here’s a little slideshow of the sunsets in the last couple of days.

November 5, 2016 at 8:30pm – A comfy but tired day

Yesterday, as we were about to go to sleep at about 11pm, that stupid idiot neighbour from the apartment building across the street, started blasting his extreme and crazy techno at full volume again. There is no way to accurately describe just how annoying that kind of music can be. It’s just a really extrem and strange kind of techno. It sometimes reminds me of a washing machine that’s malfunctioning. The volume and quality of the music is that of a club. Those people must have quite the equipment. You can hear it for quite the distance up and down the street too.
I think what makes it so bad for us, is that we are probably at about the same height as those people. I’m not sure from which apartment it comes exactly, but I think it’s on the top floor, where the attic aparmtents are. The windows there open from the roof and can’t be seen from where I am.

I just do not understand how the other tenants aren’t going completely crazy over there. Considering just how often this happens, I just dont get how the people never ever call the cops or put a stop to the noise by at least complaining. That person is able to keep going the whole night at full blast every time.
Sometimes it goes for the whole weekend, without a break. It will start on Friday at about 11pm and from there go in one go until Monday at 7 or 8am. They will turn down the volume during the day a bit, but turn it up again during the night. It will drive you mad to hear that constant monotone sound without a break for the whole weekend.

I just have had it now with those people. I’ll do something about it. First, I’ll go over to the building and see if I can talk to some residents. Maybe I can figure out which apartment it is. But anyway, the noise kept going the whole night until 8am in the morning. Between 3am and 6am they turned up the volume even more.

Despite the noise, Murli remained cuddled up next to me, sleeping peacefully and I’m glad she got her sleep. It’s more important to me than me getting my sleep, because I really wanted her to be able to rest after the stress of the vet appointment and the vaccination shots.

Of course I felt tired and exhausted today… But I still had a nice day. Went to take a nap in the afternoon with Murli, which was wonderful and much needed.
The day is now almost over.

I hope you all had a nice Caturday! And hopefully you had a good nights sleep I look forward to tomorrow, Sunday. I just love Sundays and Caturdays (if I slept the night before ). I’ll go and play with Murli and get her skin taken care of. The itchiness is gone ever since we started using the medicine from the vet and the coconut oil.

Have a lovely remaining Caturday everypawdy!
