Catch up & Penguins

Saturday, January 26, 2008

I have a lot of catching up to do, as my typist has had a arm surgery at January 4th and the healing process did not go as she had hoped. Because she still has to do it easy, I hope I can get as much computer time as possible before her next (other arm) surgery February 8th.

We want to thank everycat and everybean for their purrs, visits and thoughts, sweet emails and post card!!

Okay, on to the 1st catch-up post and collecting the penguins!

From my Antarctica cruise with Karl we brought back some souvenirs for the cats at home. There is no sun here in the Netherlands now, but all cats got a pair of sun glasses. And of course there were the penguins… I’m not sure anymore how many I had, but where I look I see penguins, everywhere in our house.

Mientje & Penguin
Mientje is an outdoor cat mostly, so she looooved the sun glasses!

Soraya & Penguin
Soraya comes more and more in the living room, is that maybe because I was away…?

B'Elanna & Penguin
I hear B’Elanna thinking…”Hmm, that’s not Bubbles, but who is it then ?”

Bubbles & Penguin
Here is Bubbles, and he already washed his penguin from head to bottom!

Bubbles & B’Elanna in the cat room… Marlene, you forgot their sun glasses!!

Buzzer & Penguin
Oh no… if Buzzer has a penguin that means it’s dead by the time you see this photo — see here why!

Feline Friday Beauty

Friday, October 19, 2007

The last picture of Mientje I posted was in June. And she is such a sweet and wonderful tabby cat, that today she is our Feline Friday Beauty.

It is Feline Friday Time! For more Friday Felines or if you want to share your cat photo/story, visit Steven’s (sometimes)photoblog.

PS – Friday is Ruis’s day off.

Mientje is our only cat who can go out of our fenced off garden. We have a big back yard, but she is used of more space for more than 10 years. And… not unimportant, she knows where she lives!

Mientje is onze enige kat die buiten onze afgeschutte tuin mag. We hebben een flinke achtertuin, maar zij is al meer dan 10 jaar meer ruimte gewend. Gelukkig weet ze waar ze woont!

Soraya, our new Persian we have saved from the animal shelter last week, is still a little bit too shy. We don’t want to force her, but we hope we can take her picture for next Feline Friday.

Soraya, onze nieuwe Pers die we meenamen uit het asiel vorige week, is nog een beetje verlegen. We willen het niet forceren, maar hopen dat we een foto van haar kunnen maken voor aanstaande vrijdag – Feline Friday.
