Purr – thday Boy Thomas

Standard

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.

After playing he needed a rest in his cosy basket.

He is now 8 years old.

Guestpost: Thomas update

Standard

Hello all furry friends, and all blog readers,

I needed to update you all quickly, while the computer is on.

After a long time of finding all different places to rest and sleep,

like

a tight cardboard box

 Sometimes a bigger one….

the lap of course….

my food giver finally got the message…..

She ordered a soft basket bed for me to sleep in:

I can’t wait until it will be delivered.

As it is very often rainy, I prefer to be indoors.

Don’t get me wrong, I am out and about when it is dry,

but the British Summer is true to its’ reputation. Wet and windy.

So I can snuggle into my new bed and enjoy my naps, rest and sleep.

Purrrrrfect

 

What were you grateful for today?

Standard

The days are getting shorter and it is almost night by the time we get home from work.

“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”
~Brian Tracy

There are so many things in my life daily I am grateful for.

Here are some of them:

 

My colleagues saying happily “Good Morning , what a beautiful day” to me this morning!

 

The wonderful healthy salad sandwich I had for lunch.

Happy 2nd Advent

Standard

Finally I managed to get my Christmas tree up…. here it is:

can you see you carefully I draped the cat around the bottom of the tree….

Xmas tree

While decorating the tree I listened to a beautiful song –

Where peaceful waters flow – Chris de Burgh

Where he sings appropriately :

“Only love can find the door …

Only love can reach the shore to heaven”

Love and peace to you all!

{New Post] The Orples Get Stuck

Standard

Thomas is having fun with 2 new friends, Oskar and Olivia. Let’s hope Oskar gets out and doesn’t forget the belly scratch…..

orples

The orples stopped by to say hello to Ute in her blog Ute Smile. Ute has such a ‘happy’ blog, and if you’ve not been there you might to stop by and say hello.  Pay no attention to her lazy cat, unless you think you can help Oscar find reprieve. I am hoping Olivia will  have already gotten Oscar out of his jam by the time the rest of us get there.

It appears Ute's smart cat is only pretending to be asleep, hoping for a belly scratch. It appears Ute’s smart cat is only pretending to be asleep, hoping for a belly scratch.

While Olivia tries to wake the kitty up, lets head on out and see what the rest of our neighbors are up to as we visit the neighborhood. 🙂
