Spa Weekend

Yesterday my typist had again a surgery, her 3rd one and now it was at her right hand/wrist. I have no idea how long it takes before I can visit and blog again, but I do know that I will be thankful when all is over and back to normal. After this one she gets a 4th (the last) surgery.

My fiance Karl was also a little stressful because of all the excitement the past week and needed some R & R. So he asked me to spend the weekend with him at a Spa.

Spa

Tucson, where Karl lives, has a world class Spa, so this morning I teleported over…

Spa

First thing we did was sleeping a very looooong time.
I wonder what the staff put in those three suitcases!

Spa

Then we went to the spa – hot baths, facials, massages, complimentary champagne…

Spa

As a Cornish Rex cat I LOVE water, so when I saw the outdoor pool I couldn’t resist…

Spa

From some other visitors we heard that this Spa has the CCSI shows available.
But before we started watching TV Karl wanted to take a photo for Sassy!

I want to thank Karl’s Maid for booking the trip for us and making this weekend possible!

The Proposal: One month later…

One month ago my beloved Karl proposed me. When we met in August 2007 it was love at first sight, so I accepted and gave him a capital YES!

But it seemed I left a broken heart…

Yara, one of the three human beans here at home thought, and was telling everybean, every friend of her, I was her fiance. Only she forgot telling me, and my feelings, and my thought about it. But let me tell you the truth and make this clear forever: Yara is sweet and pretty and my greatest human friend, but she is human. I love to cuddle and purr on her lap, and give her nosekisses and headbutts, but… I prefer a mancat as a partner and soulmate, and with Karl I found the sweetest one in the universe.

I gently explained Yara:

Yara and Ruis

Yara and Ruis

Yara and Ruis

Yara and Ruis

Pfffff, she understands it and we will stay friends!!:)

This is an unbelievable honor and a complete surprise. So many cats and dogs have a part of this. And yes, they got this award too!!

Karl, Opus and Roscoe who wrote the two wonderful scripts. All the animals at the design department, and of course the numerous actors and actresses who worked at both shows. They were all really fabulous!

I want to thank my fiance Karl. Without your never ending support, sweetheart, this would have been impossible. That we could work on this together made it a dream come true. Thank you so much!!

I also want to thank Sassy, executive producer of Little Productions and personal friend. It is always a pleasure to work with her.

Members of the Cat Blogosphere and all other blogging cats, dogs, bunnies and other species, THANK YOU. Without you as an audience, without your appreciation and without YOU coming to the shows, not one of us would be standing here! Thank You!

My NOMSS Friends

I accepted the challenge, it is never too late to make friends! I have many friends in the cat blogosphere, and because I am a dog friendly cat, I also have doggy friends. But being engaged with Karl, and not having a NOMSS friend, that was ‘not done’! Until now…

Maya (dark brindle color) and Kena (wheaten, red or maybe blond 😉 are my Not-Of-My-Species-Special-friends (NOMSS friends). They are two young Cairn Terrier girls and live in California. Maya is almost one-and-a-half years old and Kena’s first birthday is April 29th. One of the doggies I live with is a half terrier, so I know their character and temperament — and Maya and Kena are just as sweet, funny, playful, caring and naughty — I love that these doggy girls want to be my Special Friends!!
