Yesterday I bought myself some lovely yellow and white roses, got them home and within 2 minutes of me starting to put them in the vase, Max was there on the bench trying to eat the foliage!!
Once the vase of flowers was ready, I moved them to another part of the bench, thinking maybe he wouldn't notice. Right!!
So after numerous times of me getting him off the bench, I ended up putting the vase in the bathroom and shutting the door. Sort of defeated the purpose of having some nice flowers in the house.
A little later I was eating a mandarin and Max jumped on my knee, smelt the citrus, wrinkled his nose and jumped down again. This reminded me, derr, that cats don't like citrus.
Here now is my vase of roses ... and so far, Max has left them alone.
So okay, not the best decorating idea, but I can ignore them and just concentrate on the roses.
