Teil 850 – Wir sind wieder da!

We are back!! And what do you think? Have you checked out our new homepage yet? It now contains a slider with the most recent posts, introduces the team and features a quote of a famour (or not so famous) cat lover. A look at the team lineup will probably make you...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 12 – 8

Countdown to Christmas – Days 12 – 8 Sonia was right! Wanting to publish a blog every day was way too ambitious, particularly before Christmas. But in our review of 2018, July, August and September have become one overheated blurr in my mind anyway. Our...

Countdown to Christmas – Day 13 Welcome to the second part of June! What you see above is a polyresin cat my friend Kasia gave me for my birthday last year – and it is a scarecrow. Not that it would scare our resident crows Odin and Freya but I had the...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 14

Countdown to Christmas – Day 14 We have reached the beginning of June. While I am still waiting for the perfect moment to catch Maxine, nature decides to interfere. On June 2nd the bump that turned out to be an abscess bursts open and Maxine seems relieved. She...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 15

Countdown to Christmas – Day 15 We are still in May. It is still warm and humid. And apart from preparing Joschi’s meals and force-feeding him several times a day, I have so much work to do that I have not even found the time to take photos – and...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 16

Countdown to Christmas – Day 16 Welcome to May 2018. As you know, all I managed to publish in May was the birthday blog for Marvi, Islay and Isfrid. Even though I had already collected the photos I was not able to congratulate Sander, Mrs. Peel and their...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 17

Countdown to Christmas – Day 17 Now to the things that happened last April that you don’t know yet: The medically trained eye of my sister thought that Maxine’s face looked swollen. Was there really a bump on her right cheek? I could not detect...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 18

Countdown to Christmas – Day 18 Welcome to April in our review of 2018! It was too warm for the time of year – again. The weeds were growing faster than the tulips and I broke my foot. Plus, we celebrated the birthdays of Mira and Marvi at the end of the...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 19

Countdown to Christmas – Day 19 When humans separate animals normally suffer. The shelters are full of dogs and cats that turned into „orphans of divorce“ because one partner left and the other is no longer willing or capable to take care of the...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 20

Countdown to Christmas – Day 20 Today we take a first look at March and when you look at the blog, you don’t see much. The weather was nice and unseasonably warm. The cranes were already flying north and the bumble bees all collapsed into the crocuses...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 21

Countdown to Christmas – Day 21 What else happened in February? Thankfully not much. We were all looking forward to spring and enjoying the garden but it began to transpire that my workload would increase this year. I was only able to publish 8 issues – an...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 22

Countdown to Christmas – Day 22 After mild but dull and depressing January, February brought a little bit of snow and lots of sunshine. Sander could not wait to perform his famous ritual sun dance. Do you remember? Nach dem milden, aber trüben und deprimierenden...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 23

Countdown to Christmas – Day 23 Do you remember what you did in January? I was nursing Isfrid who had come down with a high fever and a mysterious infection. She spent over a week in the infirmary aka my office and we have never found out what was actually wrong...

Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 24

Countdown to Christmas – Day 24 Dear readers, I have neglected you for months but believe me I had good reasons. To make up for this and to catch up, I will countdown to Christmas with you, meaning that there will be a blog every day – even on weekends. To...
Weihnachts-Countdown: Tag 16

Birthday Special: Islay

Today is Islay’s turn and what shall I tell you about him that you do not already know? He is the strongest and biggest (6.9 kg) and the undisputed king of the back garden. As he is also a terror and attacks and chases all the others, they avoid him as good as...
Birthday Special: Isfrid

Birthday Special: Isfrid

We still do not know why Isfrid got so sick the beginning of this year but the fever has not returned so far and she is as fit as a fiddle. Just like people, some animals can eat whatever they want and they never gain weight while others like poor Marvi only have to...
Birthday Special: Marvi

Birthday Special: Marvi

It is so good to have a blog archive! Looking at last year’s entry I read that Marvi weighed 6.3 kg at her 6th birthday. What good news do I have today! Our diet (and my organisational skills) finally led to results: The seven year old Marvi only weighs 5.8 kg....

Birthday Special: Mira

Welcome to birthday week 2018! As you know by now only Maxine and Jaspar do not celebrate their birthdays in spring. Let’s start the week with Mira who has turned 7 today. Mira currently weighs 5.3 kg which is a little hefty but apart from that she is doing...
