Texas! The humans are back with Milou!

Texas! The humans are back with Milou




He is furry hungry, which is a good sign!




I purrsonally inspected his carrier to make sure he was treated appropriately. It smelled strange.



WELCOME BACK HOME MILOU!

I'm back!

I’m back!

Again, thank you to all of you who left loving and caring messages! We are ever so thankful!

I don’t know about you, but my human has had a busy past week.

Consequently, I have to work today and do my job of Chief Napper. Actually, I even have to hire an assistant!

How was your week and your weekend? Purrs to everyone!

Kitshka! Go back to work!

I don’t know if you have noticed, but lately, my human has seized any occasion to post a link to her bloggie on MY BLOG. What can I say? I have way more followers than she has. Ah!

Nevertheless, she came up with an idea she came up with some links from bloggies she was following and I came up with an idea!

Some of the blogs she is following – cooking or other blogs but not cat blogs per se – sometimes post stories about the kitties in the bloggers’ lives. Sometimes I post the links of some posts on my Facebook profile because I think you might enjoy checking them.

So I came up with an idea: Why not post the links in a post here? This could be a monthly post. We think anything kitty-related is interesting, don’t you think?

Please, check the links below and at the bottom of this post, I added a quick survey for you to tell me if you like the idea and would like me to try a monthly edition. Be honest! These are links I have selected because I think you might enjoy checking them, but you are the best able to tell me ;-)

Thank you in advance and enjoy!

This first link is just so you can see cute Norma Jean!

Here are pictures of Flyball, eating baby spinach leaves! I think I’ll stick with chicken though =^.^=

Want to visit the Agora in Athens? What about a kitty as a guide?

The kitties at Love & Olive Oil have trained their humans well!

And finally for the March edition, how to make a cardboard cat condo! That’s a nice project for your humans, I think.

Hope you liked the links! Don’t forget to vote. I already have 5 links for April – and we can never get enough kitties, can we? – but I want to know if you are interested! Thank you!

Hiya everyone!

First of all, the VBP post will be posted exceptionally (VBP) by Kitshka tomorrow.

Now to really impawtant things.

How are you doing today? I’m glad that you came because my human has been preparing some treats for my purrthday just for me and I want to share them with my furriends! That’s you!

First things first: look at the beautiful cards I received from my furriends!

My very good furriend, Sammy!

Thank you Sammy! I love your hat!

My sweetest furriend, Savannah!

It’s an honor to have such a beautiful Ladycat sending me a card!

My human’s mother – the best cat sitter EVER! – sent me this yummy cupcake on Facebook!

purrfect cupcake

Doesn’t it look yummy? I bet it’s tuna!

And I also received chicken from Vincent, one of my Facebook fans!

Oh! I almost forgot: my vet sent me a cool ecard too!

Thank you all so furry much! And thank you to all of you who left wishes on my Facebook profile!

Look what I got!

4 different bags of treats, catnip puffs, a catnip pepper and… a tunnel! I love my catnip pepper already!

The tunnel is amazing! It sounds like crinkly paper and there are lights!

I received my best favorite ever food from Europe, thanks to Janina!

And as a cake, my human wanted to make me a tuna cake BUT since I had received all this wonderful food from France, I had my favorite: Tuna & Shrimps!

There is some for everyone, so help yourself! There are treats too! Go ahead! You can taste them all!

Then we can go play in my new tunnel!

Finally, the human had this weird idea to bake something for your humans too. When she told me what she baked, I was shocked! SHOCKED!

Wanna know what it is?

This could be part of our VBP post… take notes Kitshka.

Okay I tell you…

Cat’s tongues! Yes, in French, des langues de chat!

Have no fear! Those are just biscuits that have the shape of our tongues. Ah! Humans really!

You can throw some to your humans, and let’s have fun!

I want to pawty!

Texas & Kitshka: The female human is preparing something in the kitchen

Texas & Kitshka: The female human is preparing something in the kitchen

Texas: What are you doing human?
Kitshka: Is there cream involved?

The human: Chocolate eggs
Texas & Kitshka: Ah…

We want to wish everyone who is celebrating a Happy Easter!

Texas: We want to wish everyone who is celebrating a
Happy Easter!

And to those who do not celebrate, we just wish them Happiness!

When the humans are in the kitchen, I like to be not too far from them…

Sometimes, little yummy noms fall on the floor and I catch them help the humans clean up.

Sometimes, the humans want me to clean their fingers too. I like to clean their fingers.

But the best moment in the kitchen is in the morning…

That’s when the humans get the cream cheese out of that white and cold closet behind me… Mmmmh… cream cheese…

Is it the white closet they’ve just opened?!?

[Still not sure what VBP is? Check here.]


I take a break from my weekly bilingual VBP post to dispatch (VBP) some news.

First, little-no-so-old me is literally (VBP) in the news! Yes I am!

No, not the newspawper! But I’m in a magazine. You know this bundle (VBP) of glossy (VBP) papers the humans (especially female humans) read. Want to know more? Consider visiting me on Saturday (well, yes, today is VBP day, I can’t take all the glory ;-)


Second piece of news is that little-not-so-old me is turning 7 in exactly one week! I don’t feel like I am aging (VBP)! Can you tell this face is almost 7?

Look at this strong body of mine (Hello! Lady Cats!)

Doesn’t this paw look brand new?

Ah! I knew it! So you are all invited to my purrthday next Thursday. Remember, April 4.


Last and least, my human is abandoning me to go to going to the Blog Paws Conference in May. Everything’s booked (VBP) but the transportation. You think there’s still hope she’ll stay with me?

Below are the past week’s pawticipants. As always, click on the bluey badge at the bottom of this post to enter your link for this week. And don’t forget to grab the badge! Thanks to everyone!

I have a love-hate relationship with suitcases. While they are fun to play in and sometimes comfy to sleep in (especially when the human has already put clothes in one of them), they usually mean that the human is leaving for an undetermined number of days. Sometimes I might travel with her, though.

When I was younger, my human had to travel a lot, and I quickly understood that suitcases were not a good sign: they have the power to steal my human from me!

One day, to show my discontent, I peed in an empty one my human had left opened. You think my human would have thanked me for trying to prevent the suitcase from kidnapping her? Pfft, not even! She was not pleased at all!

So I tried different techniques, but mostly sit-ins. It never deterred my human from leaving :-/

Yes, human. It is your lingerie. Why?

Yes, human. It is your lingerie. Why?

Do you like suitcases and if not, do you have a technique to make them disappear?

Because my human left us for three days in snowy New York to go to sunny California for something related to work, we’re a lot behind reading your posts and blogging again.

So, exceptionally, we will post our VBP post tomorrow (we do want to post the links to everyone who participated and it takes some time since we cannot do it automatically).

But today, we wanted to wish you a HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
Enjoy the day with the humans and furriends you value and love!

Remember when I had won this fabulous toy that is the cat-a-pole?
Well, the prize also included some great toys from Moderncat (now Hauspanther.com), as well as litter (World’s best cat litter) and a lickety stick (but we’ll have a post about those last two tomorrow or on Sunday).

We really wanted to post pictures because we love these toys, AND I think it is the least we can do to say thank you. But that was a period when the human was super busy (huh-oh, looks like more busy-ness is to come) and we never did.

So here are some pictures… and a video of Kitshka!

[You can click on any picture to get a bigger version in the slideshow.]

My preference went to the ModKicker, which smelled good catnip! Kitshka and I both like the Felt Rollers, but Kitshka is playing with them more than I do. She is also having fun with the Junk Food Flyer but her favorite one, actually really one of her favorite toys EVER (she takes it everywhere in the house), is the Lynks Felted Wool Toy! She loves it!

So, we want to say THANK YOU to Zee & Zoey and Moderncat for the fun!

Yesterday, I was reading Daisy’s post at PetMeds Blog and I learned that today is National Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day!

Needless to say, all three of us – Milou, Kitshka, and I – have questions for our humans! So there you go!

Milou

How come I cannot eat Texas’ and Kitshka’s yummiest food?
Because it makes you seriously sick, then I have to get you to the V-E-T and he performs outrageous things on your business end to fix you.

Why are you feeding me only 18 times a day when I’m hungry 28 times?
Because I actually have to work so I can afford your diet food among others, and get a little sleep (I don’t require 18h a day but still).

I’m hungry. Can I have food now?
You had food 10 minutes ago!



Kitshka

Can the birdies outside be invited inside the house?
No sweetie, they are meant to live outside. Inside, they could not fly.

How come I cannot eat Texas’ and Milou’s yummiest food?
Because you have your special kitten food, so that you can healthily grow into a beautiful Ladycat. Texas is currently on diet food* and Milou has a special urinary diet.

Why don’t you let the cream cheese on the table, ever?
I don’t want it to turn sour.**



Me, Texas

Why don’t you eat fresh shrimps more often?
Because we don’t want to eat shrimps everyday.

Why can’t we keep all the boxes you receive?
I know you love boxes, Texas. And there will always be boxes for you to play with. We cannot have boxes everywhere though. We, humans, live here too, you know (not in boxes though).

How come I cannot eat Milou’s yummiest food?
Because Milou has a special urinary diet, he cannot eat*** anything else, and this type of food is very high in calories.

* Texas: Human! You didn’t have to tell!
** Kitshka: Yeah, right. Just because I am a kitten doesn’t mean I am stupid. You just don’t want to share!
*** Milou: Speaking of eating…

My human had an urgent (understand: she had completely forgotten about it) paper to finish yesterday and could not finish the post we wanted to have today.
This morning, she felt like she had caught a cold or something, so today’s post had to be rescheduled.

I haven’t posted a “Monday are for Memories” for some time now, so here is a picture of me napping in my carrier when I was a little less than 3 months. I had just been adopted (3 days before). The picture was taken on my human’s birthday (really human, who cares about that?).

Have a great day, furriends!

This morning, I read this great post at The Conscious Cat about how humans should take time for themselves. Those are simple yet very wise pieces of advice. It puzzles me that humans have to be reminded about that.

After reading that post, I convinced Kitshka that we should help our human relax and take Sunday in a relaxing way. She has to take time for herself (after feeding us of course) instead of using the evil vacuum cleaner to clean the house. Kitshka was playing with my tail, as always, while I was deep in thought and I had to convince her it would be fun. And fun it was.

Here is how we tried to use hypnosis to relax our human (You can click on the pics to get a closer look at our method).

Your eyelids are heavy human, very heavy... you want to close your eyes...

Your eyelids are heavy human, very heavy…
You want to close your eyes…

Texas: You feel like laying down... lay down on the couch nearby... Kitshka: Texas I feel a little snoozzzzzzzz...

Texas: You feel like laying down… lay down on the couch nearby…
Kitshka: Texas I feel a little snoozzzzzzzz coming…



And at that point there was a big BANG and a human OUCH!



Texas: Oooops! Kitshka: Did you forgot there was a coffee table between her and the couch, Texas?

Texas: Oooops!
Kitshka: Did you forget there was a coffee table between her and the couch, Texas?

Kitshka: I wonder if we could get cream cheese that way Texas: Probably

Kitshka: I wonder if we could get cream cheese that way
Texas: Probably

First of all, a big THANK YOU to everyone who voted for me for the Westchester Magazine contest! I am SO lucky to have you for Furriends! I will, of course, keep you posted (VBP) on the results.
(If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you might have missed this post ;-)

~~~

Secondly, my human was at Architects for Animals: Giving Shelter yesterday and I will post some pictures tomorrow. So come back tomorrow, please :-)

~~~

Now, I know that you are waiting for Little K, aka (VBP) Mademoiselle Kitshka’s pictures so, here they are! The pics are not great because my human used her iPhone for fear Kitshka would follow her if she went looking for a better camera.

What is Kitshka’s strategy to break into Milou’s heart? Naps.

This first two pictures were taken last September. This was Kitshka’s first nap with Milou. Milou wasn’t too pleased.

Since Milou was grumpy before Grumpy Cat was his idol, Kitshka tried a different approach. She tried to charm him by keeping a little distance.

Then nothing much happened. They played a little bit from time to time, he hissed a lot.

Then the other day, Kitshka tried her charms on Milou again. Starting with the second approach, first.

And then today…

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

See how my charm works marvels?

See how my charm works marvels?

Good morning, Milou!

Good morning, Milou!

Kitshka: Nothing like a good yawn to start the day!
Milou: Is she impersonating Celine Dion?

Kitshka: I think we should exercise a little. What do you think?
Milou: Hmpf

Kitshka: Too too too you toot*…
Milou: OMC! She’s impersonating the female human!

No! Don't go, Milou!

No! Don’t go, Milou!

Kitshka: Look! The human is taking pics of us!
Milou: I know that! Texas is going to make fun of me on his blog again!

Kithska: What if we ask the human to stop taking pics?

Kithska: What if we ask the human to stop taking pics?

Can you stop taking pics?

Can you stop taking pics?

Kitshka: I guess we’re done here then



* I thought I would share some of the humans’ French culture. Ahem. Dates back to when they were kids. The “too too you toot” link is the music of a French aerobics TV program. Check here. Humans, they are funny sometimes.

All this movement made me feel like napping…

Last November, I entered a contest on CatFoodBreath to win some goodies from the sassyNpunk boutique. I thought that it would make a nice Christmas present for my human (since she is not particularly fond of hairballs and she gets some of my white fur on her traditional black pants all year long anyway).

I was surprised but very happy to learn that I had won! A few days ago, my human received her present and she liked it very much. The goodies are for girls of course, and guess who else was interested? You guessed right: Mademoiselle Kithka.

Look at this pink package. It must be for me.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013!

2012 brought us many surprises, good and bad.
The sad part was that we lost Grouik. We still miss you lots, Grouik, especially Milou.
The good part was that we met many furriends, may I add furry and human. Our furriends were there to support us in the bad times, we tried our best to support them when they needed some purrs too. We are very lucky to have found you and we really – REALLY – appreciate you visiting my little blog. So THANK YOU!

For 2013, we wish you all that your heart desires and deserves, as well as lots of purrs, treats, and for the humans, some of our fur to make your black pants a little more sophisticated!

Before closing the 2012 page, we thought we would do a small retrospective (VBP) of some of our 2012 posts. We decided to show you those that got the most likes, one per month.

I started the year in January with a Yeats poem. In February, bed sharing had only just begun.

Texas-in-Grouik's-bed-02

In March, bed sharing was in full swing.

Grouik-in-Milou's-bed-01

In April, Milou was trying to steal my wind (no pun intended – please!).

Milou-pic-ruin

In May, I demanded an explanation to Milou.

TexasVsMilou_04

June brought fresh catnip.

Grouik_catnip05

July was a very sad month, because Grouik went to the Rainbow Bridge. So instead of linking to a post, I will link to his page.

Grouik-Bday-2012

August brought us Kitshka!

Frisco_02

September was destroy-a-toy month for Kitshka.

New-Toys_07

October brought us cold weather. Brrrrrr.

sleepy-cold_08

In November, we purred for peace (still are of course).

In December, we kept ourselves warm and almost cozy!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013!

Today, Mademoiselle Kitshka is 6 month old! Happy birthday, Kitshka!
Now that you’re almost not a kitten anymore, could you stop playing with my tail? What? No. Pfft. Okay.

Here are pictures of little K. striking a paws on (in?) one of our Christmas gifts!

~~~

Since today is Boxing Day, we didn’t want to miss it! We LOVE boxes! And that is part of the wonderfulness of Christmas: boxes left behind!
I know on this day we are supposed to give our humans a gift, but aren’t we, kitties, a year-long gift, really?

~~~

And last but not least, I would like to say thank you to Ann at Pawsitively Pets for making me a drummer kitty in her fabulous Anipal Tribute to the 12 Days of Christmas. Check it out, it is fantastic! Here’s little not-so-old me:

[The awards post will come later today – I have something to show you first]

Did you know that our furriends Star and Leo, from Celestial Kitties, and their human, are running a Christmas Fundraiser for Winnie’s Wish?

WWchristmas fundraiser banner

Star’s and Leo’s human, Andrea, is making (herself! – it’s not my human who could do that!) beautiful Christmas ornaments, some of which can even be purrsonalized with our names!

Here are ours:

Xmas-Ornaments_01

You can even ask for catnip inside. Since the humans won’t have a Christmas Tree (they are afraid we Kitshka will destroy it), the ornaments serve as toys for us. Yep. Ours have catnip.

For a donation of $15 you get three ornaments. Additional ornaments are $3 each.

Every dollar above postage and a very tiny materials amount goes to Winnie’s Wish! That’s about $12 a basic set! Winnie’s Wish is dedicated to rescuing abandoned or feral kitties and finding them great homes where they can be loved for the rest of their lives!

Go check the details here!

They were instantly successful with us. They are beautiful, smell sooooo good and make great pillows too!

Look at my reaction first!
[click on any picture to biggify]

Kitshka was first hesitant, but that didn’t last long!
[click on any picture to biggify]

Milou was a little shy because he’s not used to being featured on a blog…
[click on any picture to biggify]

Okay Milou. Thanks for this but the goal was to play with the ornament. Never mind.

As the nip guru, I of course had to try each and every ornament, to make sure the nip was extra great quality. It was.

What? I know it's Milou's!

What? I know it’s Milou’s!

Yes, I know it's Kitshka's!

Yes, I know it’s Kitshka’s!

I'm not stealing them I'm testing them!

Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks:
=^.^= to our humans, when they deserve it
=^.^= to the humans who produce the Greenies
=^.^= to our furriends for visiting our bloggies and for writing bloggies, too

It is also a time when humans give thanks (that’s when we have to be careful because they tend to give extra cuddles and kisses).

And of course, it is a time to relax with our family…

…and to enjoy a lavish (VBP) meal!



From our family to yours: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

This quote, by a famous French author, illustrates the innocence and peace of us kitties, according to my human (French and original version at the end of the post). What do you think?

Reading my furriends’ bloggies, I saw that today many of them were pawticipating in a special blog blast titled Dona Nobis Pacem: Grant us Peace.
You can find more details at BlogBlast4Peace as well as on Mimi Lenox’s website.

This is our first time pawticipating in this event and we wanted to do something special. Of course, us kitties know the secret to peace and happiness (and many other things, some we will not share!). So I wanted to share part of this secret with you. How Kitshka and I find peace. Are you ready?

*** We wish you all
Peace in your home
As well as in your world
And we send lots of purrs
to help you on the way! ***

My furriends,

Just a quick post to let you know that we are doing fine! Really not many damages from Sandy! We have electricity! Thank you Ceiling Cat!

How are my furriends on the East Coast doing?

On a less happy note, look who stole my brand new box:

Hmpf!

I wonder if I can make some money, to buy myself Greenies, by sending the following picture to the Amazon humans… Don’t you think Milou is doing a great catification of their logo?

First things first: sorry for another period without posts on my blog or without me visiting your bloggies. My human cannot go to work tomorrow because of the hurricane (she’s not pleased – she’s doing her back of disrespect to the weather) so I’ll be able to spend some time with her to work on my blog and read your lovely posts.

That is, if Hurricane Sandy isn’t cutting off our Internet connection and/or our electricity. Sandy is arriving on our shores tomorrow (winds tonight). Trains, subways and busses have been shut down, schools in NYC will be closed tomorrow and part of NYC is being evacuated.

I could not care less. But the humans seem to be taking this seriously. So just so you know, if you don’t hear from us in the next few days, that may be because of Sandy and not my human.

Also, if we don’t have a blackout, we might schedule post that would go online after a blackout (thanks to WordPress scheduling option). So if posts go online but you don’t see us on your bloggie or answering comments, a blackout may have happened after we scheduled a couple of posts. Are you following me?

STAY SAFE everyone on the East Coast (especially)!

In the meantime, here is my new box. My human says it is too small for me, but I don’t see why. Do you?

Not go.

Today, I wanted to present you one of the great toys we now play with daily. My post is ready: text (my human typed it), pictures, efurrything is ready! But…
Well, the humans have filmed Kitshka playing with it and the male human is in charge of editing the video. But the male human didn’t get the chance to edit it yet. Guess why. Yep, work.

So, to keep you waiting, here’s a teaser by Mademoiselle Kitshka:

Meanwhile, we wait more or less patiently, and have started reading your bloggies again!

Many things happened while my human was doing something else than posting on my blog…

But first things first: thank you all for sending purrs and messages to Dayak. Her Mom left a message in the comments of my post to say that she was sleeping a lot due to the medication. We are waiting for more news and hope she is going to be better really soon. I keep sending purrs.

In other news, from my home this time, Kitshka has deaded another toy. Really deaded.

See, Spitty? This one has no magical powers I’m afraid and will not come back to life. It never was a favorite of mine or Grouik or Milou, but Kitshka liked it a LOT. As you can obviously guess. But that’s okay because we have other toys. More on this in the days to come ;-)

Some time ago, I was one of the lucky winners of a Purina Be Happy T-Shirt over at Cat Chat. Thanks to Cody and Caren!

So my human and I went to the site (actually their Facebook page) where we could make our own t-shirt. Because you see, the coolest part was that we could “make” the t-shirt the way it pleased us me. So I told my human to make it about me.

Guess what? Yep, she messed up. Check the t-shirt.

It is a very nice t-shirt but how is it about me?


Doesn’t smell like me…

Is the kitty supposed to be me? Just wondering because I don’t have any fishbowl to fish from here…

Here’s what I think about you making this t-shirt a tribute to me…

Busy busy busy…

Shhh shhh!

What?! Yes, human, you can wear this nice t-shirt… as long as you get me a fishbowl with a magical fishie inside, like Spitty’s

Actually, I don’t really need the fishbowl. I’ll be magnanimous (VBP): the magical fishie alone will do.

Thanks to Cody and Caren and Purina and Happy Caturday everyone!

Hiya furriends!

Thank you all for your support yesterday! I’m glad to announce that my human was terrified at the idea of my purring strike – and also wanted to keep some of her Christmas paper for Christmas, how strange it may seem! – so we won!

I am back to blogging today (one day before the lastest limit). We didn’t get the extra treats and tuna juice though (the human wasn’t too pleased with the strike threat per se) but we’ll find a way.

We will go back to visiting your bloggies starting today. Yeah!

In the meantime, as proof of goodwill from everyone, the humans decided to build (yet) another shelving thingie to accommodate (Vocab Building Project VBP) more of my human’s books and let Kitshka and I watch supervise.

As you can see, we got everything under control. We were there to help them measure stuff.



We were there to support the humans.

What are you waiting for?
Start the job! We have blogging stuff to do!

Not too bad, human. Keep on keeping on.



Kitshka got a little distracted along the way, but that’s okay, she’s still young.

Tomorrow, I’ll start showing you some of the cool stuff I was so lucky to win! Have a great day my furriends!

Alright furriends, I am so not pleased with my human and her not giving me time to 1) post on my blog, 2) visit all my furriends’ bloggies (I tried this but didn’t manage to visit all of you yet – sorry).

Sooooo, being a French kitty, I’m threatening to STRIKE: no more purrs, no more letting my human pet me if we are not back by THIS Friday (and have additional dried tuna treats everyday and tuna juice twice a week)! You hear me human? Of course I will train Kitshka in the art of French strike.

Kitshka has started making banners out of Christmas gift paper she found behind a closet, hidden (!). Agreed, she needs a little more practice.



Today, we have planned a sit-in in front of the desk.

Oh and human, we KNOW where the Greenies are. So Friday is the lastest limit.

[My human was scared enough about the no-purring threat that she helped me post this one, so Kitshka and I have high hopes]

Where my human’s Mom lives, there is a small forest nearby. My human and her husband brought me there a couple of times when I was still almost a kitten (about 5 months old on the pics).

I loved it! I was on a leash (my human was frightened at the idea that I could run away) but that was still pretty cool. I could smell the different plants and animals. I could climb trees. It was a great adventure!

The pics are not that great because my human had just bought her DSLR and she was learning to use it. But they’re still good memories =^.^=

Remember a couple of days ago when I explained how to get your human’s attention when your human was reading in bed? Well, it looks like I got a little too much attention. She decided she wanted some snuggling time instead of reading!

Seriously, what’s with the snuggles and kisses?! I just need to play and get some tuna!



Human! What are all the Ladycats reading my blog going to think now?! I’m a grown Mancat for Ceiling Cat sake!

You may remember that I had a technique to get your humans’ attention when they decide to read instead of playing with you. This technique worked on the couch, as you can see on the pictures, but what if your human decides to read in bed?

It is actually no different. It’s on the bed after all, so all you have to do is go sleep on it. The book that is.

Hiya, human! Is it time to sleep already?



Let me check your clock! Oh yes! It is time!



Sorry, no time to read



Sweet dreams!

First things first: Milou would like to thank all of you for all your best wishes and nice comments. I think he enjoyed having his special day and spent most of it napping =^.^=

Now for the memories. My human used to have an exercise bike in her apartment in Paris. I absolutely loved it. In fact I made it mine. Besides, my human rarely used it (Yes it’s true, human!)! I loved loved it!

Unfortunately, before we all moved to the U.S., my human sold it to some strangers claiming that we could not bring everything to America. So I had to say adieu to my bike.

Here is one of the good moments I had on it! In case you are wondering, this is not my human on the video (my human was filming), this is my human’s Mom.

Hope you enjoy the video!

Hiya everyone!

Today is Milou’s birthday! Or so I’ve decided.

You see, we don’t know exactly when Milou was born.

A little history (my half-brother Milou is old…):
Milou was adopted at some point in late summer, according to my human’s husband. My human’s husband doesn’t remember when exactly (have you noticed furriends how female humans are better at remembering dates, especially birthdays and stuff like that, than male humans?) and since he didn’t know my human at the time, well, my human cannot remember for the rest of us!

To keep Milou’s story of adoption short, my human’s husband adopted him when it was clear that the woman who had first adopted Milou because he was a cute kitten had realized that adopting a cute kitten implied responsibilities other than just, well, watching the cute kitten. So my human’s husband and Grouik welcomed him in their (Grouik’s) home. It was about 13 years ago.

Grouik quickly became protective of Milou and they have lived together for 13 years.

Milou has had many health issues during his life, including one instance of trying to catch a leprechaun in Ireland and falling from the fifth floor of the human’s apartment building. Thank Ceiling Cat the always-wet grass of Ireland (It was often raining – my human’s words) and Milou’s fat (the vet’s words) saved his life and left him with a minor injury at one of his hind legs.

Anyway, to keep a long story short, on top of his health problems (like a special urinary diet, among other stuff), I think Milou is missing Grouik still. Okay, he’s not always been very nice to me, but he’s about okay with the brat little sister and he is old(er) now.

Soooooo, I’ve decided that today would be his day, September 16. Milou’s Day.

Will you celebrate with me and wish Milou a Happy Milou’s Day?

Here are some funny pictures of my half-brother Milou!

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 =^.^=

Purrs

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!

It’s been exactly a month today that our beloved Grouik has left us. Not a day has passed without the humans thinking about him. We all miss him so very much.

Thankfully, we have our memories and the humans have plenty of video footage so we can watch him over and over again.

The pages (“A little bit about myself” and “My half-brothers“) on the menu on top of my blog have been updated and we have added a special page for Grouik. You can access it from the menu on top of the blog, or the first badge of him on the sidebar. You can also go to this page by clicking on the badge below.

There are many pictures of him, some words from his human, pictures of his last resting place, his little paradise that his human made for him, and a video. There will probably be one or two more videos posted later but we will let you know about that.

This is our modest tribute to our Grouik.
