Danny meets old friends

Standard

Danny traveled again this time to Germany

visiting old friends.

He met Petzi, a senior teddy,

He couldn’t hold back his excitement  and jumped right up to say hello.

Then they chatted for a long time.

In town he saw water, a plastic cow,

blue sky and beautiful snowdrops.

 

 

 

Danny found his favourite:

a ” Schwäbische Brezel”

Danny met also his other friend “Breuni” in Germany.

They enjoyed a good chat and cuddle next to Spring flowers.

After a week of sunshine he said good bye to Germany in rain

which gave us a beautiful picture of this snowdrop.

Purr – thday Boy Thomas

It was Thomas’s Birthday and for bringing us joy, love and warmth

he received a little present  I found at

Katzenworld‘s blog and ordered it from their on line shop.

It arrived very quickly right on time for his birthday.

He enjoyed it straight away and played with it, see for yourself.

Caturday treat from Thomas

Standard

Hi to all cats, cat owners, cat lovers  and every one else.

Today is Caturday

and we need to celebrate it.

Every day is a celebration of life for humans

and cats alike

as every day is special.

Today though I am dedicating this to beautiful Binky,

my friend in the Netherlands.

My owner got hold of another beautiful puzzle and we did it,

well my loyal feeder really did it.

Puss in Books a brilliant theme

So Adorable

It was such fun!

Now Binky I wanted to ask if you have read

all these books on this puzzle already,

if not I can really recommend them.

Let me explain:

The great Catsby – a classic

Looking Cool by K.T Chill – you won’t need that – you are a cool cat

Painting – Learn from Scratch – real fun- …. the scratching…..

A Purrfect Life – more great ideas to our near purrfect life.

A Purrfect storm – famous also in the human world

To kill a mockingbird –  another classic for us

Claw and Order – If you missed the TV series, enjoy the read

The Mousetrap – What can I say a MUST READ

 

cats-in-books-sept16-11

All days full of surprises and miracles.

Lets make February a month where we focus on Gratitude.

 

How often do you say thank you and really mean it?

What are you most grateful for?

Consider the things in your life you frequently take for granted

like health and love and friendship.

Choose to appreciate them,

feeling thankful does feel good.

Choose appreciation instead of expectation.

Have a gratitude journal which cultivates an attitude of gratitude.
