Hiya furriends,

Although we have a good home and not too bad humans – we can’t really complain, can we? -, the past few weeks have been very sad at times. Many furriends crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. I cannot list them all sadly but among our fellow bloggers were Fangie at Catself, Kelly at the Creative Cat, Fluffy at Hey… It’s Jet Here, Bingo at Hutch A Good Life, Zac at Zac the All Black.

I’m sure they are all playing together over the rainbow bridge now, free of pain. I am pausing for a minute and will leave a treat behind tonight in their memory.

I was so sad I tried to find a place to remember them quietly and reflect about life.

I found the closet where the humans store our food. But my human found me.

That’s too bad because there were plenty of good food in there. But nothing to help me in my pain or vocation.

No nip.

Now regarding nip… again my furriends, we don’t know the exact effect on humans so don’t try this on your humans. I would like to insist that I do not promise you nip (although if any of the cat-idates to rule the world for a cause would make me Minister of Nip, I could rethink that last statement), only enlightenment for those who believe.

Finally, I was nominated for two more awards that I didn’t have yet. So I would like to thank The Sugarlump for nominating me for the Addictive Blog Award and It’s a Pussy Cat’s Life for the Super Sweet Blogger Award.

Thank you so furry much! I really appreciate and send you purrs!

Here are the Addictive Blog Award Rules:

1. Thank the person awarding you — Done
2. Share a little about why you blog and how the journey started — See below
3. Paste the blog award on your page — Done
4. Nominate 10 other bloggers you feel deserve the award and let them know you nominated them — See below

Why I blog
I think my little life is very interesting. No seriously. My human was too busy lazy in France to start my blog, so I only had my Facebook Page, but now that my brothers and I had traveled so far, I needed a blog to tell my story.
Plus now I want to share with you the heavenly enlightenment of the nip I received.
Most importantly, it is a way to meet new furriends =^.^=

Here are my ten nominees:
=^.^= Sammy
=^.^= My furriends Hemingway and Shakespeare at Two Cats’ View
=^.^= My furriends Nellie and Kozmo
=^.^= Mollie and Alfie
=^.^= Easy
=^.^= Bowie
=^.^= Archie, Oscar and Henry
=^.^= It’s a Pussy Cat’s Life
=^.^= Angel’s Whisper
=^.^= My furriends at Manx Mnews

Now the rules for the Super Sweet Blogger Award are:

1. The nominee has to thank the person that nominated them — Done
2. Answer the 5 Super Sweet Questions — See below
3. Nominate a bakers dozen of other Super Sweet Bloggers and let them know — A dozen?! See below

Me thinks this award is better suited (vocab building project VBP) for humans (especially the sweet food part), but here we go.
1. Cookies or Cake?
Tuna cake!
2. Chocolate of Vanilla?
Er, nip?
3. What is your favourite sweet treat?
Er, the new Greenies, salmon flavor.
4. When do you crave sweet things the most?
All the time, why?
5. If you had a sweet nickname what would it be?
I know my human would call me cupcake. Hmph.

Now for my nominees:
=^.^= Terri’s Kitchen
=^.^= Hey… It’s Jet Here
=^.^= Janina
=^.^= Sammy
=^.^= Savannah
=^.^= These Days of Mine
=^.^= The Sugarlump
=^.^= A German Expat’s Life in Texas

Now TGIF, I need a nap.

Enjoy your Friday everyone!

Hiya my furriends, furry and human furriends alike!

I cannot believe it’s been a year since I first started blogging here! WoW!

I want to thank all of you who have visited my blog, liked posts and/or commented. It’s been quite a year and I am so glad I found so many furriends along the way.

I don’t want to single out just a couple of you but… I remember that among my very earliest followers (apart from family – Hiya Janina!) were the beautiful Sparkle, the adorable Catpurrology, Sweet Savannah and my good furriend Sammy! I’m not sure how I found you all or how you found me but I’m glad to know you! Then most of my furriends readers followed. I love you all so much!

To all my readers I send purrs today to thank you for coming and visiting my blog.

There are a couple of my earliest readers who didn’t have blogs that I do not see anymore. I hope you are doing fine too.

So, to celebrate, I was so so glad to discover that my human had bought me two gifts: a new toy, filled with catnip (a great toy – they claim it has the best catnip of the universe but unless they buy it from my furriends at the Katnip Lounge, it cannot be the best of the universe, sorry) and new Greenies treats (the SmartBites ones!) and they are yummy!
You think I should get my human something (because of the typing you know)? Well, since I’m doing all the cleaning on the little brat sister, I might be able to get her a fur ball for tonight =^.^=

Below are some pics and a video (thanks to my human’s husband!) of me enjoying my new toy and my first blog anniversary! Please come join me and have fun!

If you have a minute, I’d love to hear in the comments about a particular post you may have enjoyed and remembered!

THANK YOU ALL! I hope I’m starting another great year and I hope to spend it with y’all =^.^=

Back in 2010, we had an early, very cold and snowy winter. My human was living and working near Paris, while her husband was living and working in Brussels, Belgium. Don’t ask. Humans stuff. Complicated.

Anyway, they would visit each other during weekends and when I got to stay alone, my human’s Mom was visiting me or pet sitting me at her home. During the Christmas/New Year holidays, they usually spent one in one country and the other in the other (aren’t humans a bit complicated?)

But back in 2010, when my human was going to Brussels for Christmas, it had snowed A LOT just a couple of days before and traffic was bad and chances were my human’s Mom wouldn’t be able to come visit everyday. She had no other pet sitter. Yet she had to go to Brussels for other matters than Christmas too. She knew I’d rather stay in the comfort of my home, but she decided to take me with her because there was no way I was staying alone for a week, of course.

It was very cold outside so she put lots of blankets in my carrier and we went to Brussels together. She had upgraded her ticket to a First Class ticket so that she could easily have the room to take me on her lap all the time. There were not too many people in the train so I even got my own seat.

I hated train though. I am really calm in cars but I fought to get out of my carrier during the 1 hour and 20 minutes of our train trip. My human did her best to comfort me but I didn’t like it at all. It was noisy, moving all the time… Hated it. I know she felt bad about it but once we got out of the train it was okay.

We arrived safe and sound. And I got to visit my half-brothers who had been living with their human there for a couple of months.

The apartment was an old apartment with a lot of decorations made of wood. Also you can tell that, er, my human wasn’t living there because, er, it’s a bit messy. Plus the three of us, I have to admit, added to the mess a little.

Below, this is me behind a cat door. Because one of the rooms was not well heated, keeping the door closed was better. But the cat door made sure we could get there if we so wanted. We don’t like closed doors.

Striking a pose on an old, out-of-order chimney…

Cat chatting with Grouik…

It’s tiring to be a globetrotter cat…

And enjoying local drinks. Yep, just the empty bottles (you should see the humans get all nostalgic now at the sight of a bottle of Serafijn Grand Cru beer…).

You probably expected to see me photographed with the Manneken Pis, but we never went out, it was too dangerous out there.

BUT, just for you, I asked my human to make a bit of an effort to help me for once and thanks to the magical Photoshop tool here we are!

Wishing you all a great week!

Today is Kitshka’s birthday. She is two months old. It is her first birthday at our home. Her home =^.^=

Despite the fact that she has already stolen all of our toys, my human bought her a new one for her first birthday with us, a Kong Cozie Kickeroo. It appears to be some kind of blue raccoon.
The label on the toy says “Your cat will love you for it.” Ahah! My human is trying to buy my little sister’s love! Well, here she is, playing with it during… about 1 minute and 18 seconds. Kids.

Happy Birthday Kitshka! Don’t forget tonight you’ll have a little special treat too. Well, that’s usually what my human is doing for me ;-)

Hiya everyone! Hiya my furriends from Katnip Lounge!

Recently, I was the lucky winner of some fresh catnip harvested by my furriends’ Mom from the Katnip Lounge. Thank you SO VERY MUCH my furriends!!! It is the BEST CATNIP EVER!

I received it yesterday!! WOOHOO!! Can you tell I have tasted this delicious catnip already? CaNyOUTeLl REALLY?

I was a bit concerned because our mailman was on vacations and I feared he had run away with it. But thank Ceiling Cat no!

My human could only smell it when she opened the envelope (which was addressed to ME by the way, human!). Humans and their poor, inefficient noses. I could smell it the envelope closed. Can you tell?

My precious…

I got a little cute note too, and read it. Yep I read it! (Smelled goooooooood)

Then – horror! – my human tried to steal my nip! Can you believe that?! She pretends it was to take a picture… yeah right.

I took it back and finally… ahhhhhhhh… Blisssssssssssssssssssssssssssss…

My human took it back because she said I was putting catnip all over the place. Duh! You bet I was. Plus I had to open it myself (my human was way too long to act! So I used my teeth)

Ahhhh… it was wonderful. I had catnip all over my paws and my human sprinkled a little more on me. Loved it!

Then I had to find the catnip that had fallen on the floor. You don’t let such good catnip go to waste! No no no!!

I think I might have some left on my chin

Miam !

Did I say it was pure bliss?

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go find out where my human stored the precious bag…

Thank you SO MUCH to Katnip Lounge! It’s the best catnip I’ve had EVER and my human says she’s never seen me enjoying catnip that much! I confirm.

Purrs
