Caturday treat from Thomas


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





Feeling Cat tastic – Self Help  – Quiet useful – living with less Cat tastophies

The British Mewseum  –  a useful cat-alogue

Catmandu – a travelguide – very interesting indeed

Street Life by Al.E.Cat – a fun story



Everything about everything by I.B. Curious –  a must read – specially for kittens

Tail of two Kitties by Charles Catkins / great fiction for lazy evenings on laps



Puss in Boots – not to forget the most important classic

The secret of a good sleep by KIT.T Naps – not needed for us as we have purrrfected that already



Wishing you and all humans a super relaxing weekend

with many naps in between!

Books to sit on!


London has got a lovely idea about books. We discovered some book – benches at our day out yesterday!

There are 50 benches looking like open books all around London in 4 different trails. We found 3 benches. They look amazing.

All benches will be there for the Summer until 15th September.

The 50 BookBench sculptures will be sold at public auction on 7 October 2014 at an exclusive event at the Southbank Centre.
All proceeds will go to the National Literacy Trust, a charity dedicated to raising the literacy levels of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

I have a new friend, who is so like me.

Reaching for the sky , spreading joy, being happy.


Enjoying a peaceful time by myself


Having lots of love inside and sharing it with everyone


Be thankful for the beauty



is my new friend and I met him in a little book , my sister gave to me.

He is so sweet I have to share him with you, a big heart and spreading joy into the world.


The book is called “Wellness for the soul”.


Two Austrian people gave life to OUPS, 10 years ago, and he is now one of my favourite characters.

OUPS comes from a different planet, the planet of the heart, which is full of love , kindness, and peace. When he saw earth, a lovely planet, and noticed how unhappy and dissatisfied humans were, he wondered why humans are always arguing and even have wars, he thought to come down to spread love and kindness among all the busy people here. To make others happy is his main purpose. He now wanted to show humans how to live with love and making life easy and happy.

He flew down to earth and took two gifts, love and joy. He knew humans will love it.


I know some people on earth have received it but not all, and we are working on those….

Many of his books can be bought, some of his books are also in English. Example: sunbeams for our heart

Love him, spread joy and happiness!

A Jar or a Journal ???


I read a lot of positive blogs, facebook sites and articles.

Then I came across great ideas which I wanted to share with you.

1st January is a good day to start…..

Idea 1.


Idea 2.

Write a Gratitude Journal

This picture is the one I will use, all ready for January 2013.

I will write down every day , at the end of the day, what good things the day gave me and what I was grateful for on this day.

A wonderful way to celebrate each day, think of the gifts and positive things of each day and I can show my gratitude and be thankful .

And remember:

“When you expect nothing,

you can receive everything

as a marvelous gift.”
