Thank you so much Sherri-Ellen and BellaDharma! Your beautiful letter and enclosed photograph of sweetie BeallaDharma arrived in the beginning of this week! The letter is in perfect condition and it has none of the usual wear that international mail usually has.
Not long ago, I was talking to our dear friend Sherri-Ellen of nylabluesmum.wordpress.comabout photos and painted portraits of our beloved kitties and how I am planning on having our cats portraits painted (from existing photos) and to have a few of the really beautiful photos printed out as well. I want to have a dedicated wall area in our home for them, and to send them to friends who would love to have copies of the photos and paintings.
Which got me thinking to also have a dedicated wall area of our kitty friends photographs as well! Sherri-Ellen and BellaDharma were really fast and sent us a beautiful photo with a lovely letter.
Thank you so much again! It’s so sweet and really made my week! Lots of love from us all!
It’s a very different Easter, but despite everything, I wish you all a lovely Easter and that you can enjoy it as much as possible.
Despite the difficult times, I am still very lucky to have a home that we’re safe in, that we’re healthy and together, and that we have everything we need and won’t have to worry too much. I’m happy to spend Easter with my little family of Ralph and the cats Samantha, Sonic, Hero and Lisa. I’m also happy and thankful to have all of you wonderful friends! I just want everyone and their furbabies to be safe and well.
I am writing on a post, that I’ll hopefully be able to finish tomorrow. The migraines have messed all the blogging and updating up, again… I’m so sorry.
But I wanted to wish you all a lovely Easter and let you all know that we’re still perfectly fine. Still under lockdown and at home. I feel it will be a long time before they end the lockdown.
Sending lots of love from Ralph, the kitties and me!
Have fun watching Lisa fetching her toy balls in this video:
Not long after this video, she actually started bringing her balls right to me, so I can throw them again. She’s now actually fetching properly! Of course I’ll do a video about that soon.
It’s been lovely, but hot and unfortunately very humid, which is the actual problem. The temperature itself would not be so hard on them. The apartment is nice and comfortably cool. During the worst heat of the day, the cats don’t even want to go out, not even Murli, which says a lot.
Murli spends most of the afternoon up on the fridge…
Samantha and Sonic like to hang out in the bedroom when the window is open with just the cat safety net on. It’s impossible to make the bed in the morning like that. If you try, they will help, but with their help, it will take longer than to just wait until they are somewhere else (which will be about midday or even later).
But in the evening they like to hang out on the balcony again.
In other things…
There is a forecast for thunderstorm and heavy rain for the afternoon today. Since my Dad is on vacation for two weeks, I take care of the flowers on the grave of my Mum and my grandparents. I usually go there in the morning, before it gets too hot. I love to take care of them and it’s a lovely bicycle ride, which I record on my GoPro. I was even able to keep my hat on without it flying off!
But with the forecast predicting so much rain, I’ll take a gamble and hope the rain will take care of the flowers today. I’ve been a bit exhausted these days from doing a lot and need a day of not having to go out (which would be today). But if no rain comes, I’ll go to the cemetery in the early evening.
Also, after having migraines every single day for more than a week, I finally got a bit of a break. Didn’t have one yesterday and as of right now, I feel fine too!
Ralph, the cats and myself, wish all the awesome Dad’s (which includes Cat Dad’s too of course) out there a happy Father’s Day! Hope you have a wonderful day!
Love, Murli, Samantha, Sonic and me ❤
PS: The cats told me to help them make a Father’s Day card for Ralph, their Daddy. So I used one of my apps on my phone and they told me what to do. Happy Cat Daddy Day!
Hello everyone! We hope you’re having a nice New Years Eve and that your holidays have been great!
Ralph, the cats and myself are just having a relaxed holiday really, with just being home with the cats, having good food and cake. Of course the cats also get special treats 😉
Samantha and Sonic are still curled up and asleep. Only Murli is walking around at the moment. They’re all relaxed and happy. Thankfully, with the windows and backdoor closed, it’s not that noisy and the bangs sound distant. It will get loud around midnight though, but we’re not right in the middle of the city, so there’s not that much going on. I’m very glad for that, as it’s horribly noisy right in the city, with constant bangs and fireworks and festival tents with loud music going till 5 in the morning. I enjoy not having to deal with that anymore so much!
Could not be happier to be together with Ralph and the sweet cats in our home. And it’s amazing to me that this is now our 2nd New Years together (since Ralph came to Austria in September 2017). I’m looking forward to every day of our life going forward. Every single day is a lovely one with our little family and I’m so thankful for that.
May the new year be a peaceful and happy one for all of us!
Lots of love! Thank you, each and every one of you, for commenting and visiting my little blog, despite the fact I wasn’t very active this year.
Ralph, me and the Cats, Samantha, Sonic and Murli wish everyone of you lovely friends a happy Christmas, and peaceful holidays!
You have all been on my mind, wondering how you all are doing and hoping everyone and their furbabies are well and happy.
We are all happy and thankful to be together in our home. The cats are fine and happy, as are Ralph and myself. My migraines have not been as frequent either!
We had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner yesterday at my Dads. I still feel stuffed from that dinner… Of course the cats got some of it too! We brought home some chicken for them, off of Ralphs plate. They loved it of course, and even today, they got some meat from Ralphs dinner! Since I don’t eat meat, I don’t have anything to give them off of my plate, so it’s always Ralph 😀
We walked home after dinner at my Dads, and I went to bed not too lang afterwards. This morning, we opened our gifts, which was lovely.
This is our little tree. I got it from my Mum in 2005, and I put it up every Christmas. I added some things to it, like the birds and the cat at the top. The birds on that tree are older than I am, except for one.
I will do an end of year post, where I try to put everything important in that’s been going on. But one important update I’ll leave you with already. Murli ended up being fine after the Vet. The lab results showed that she is healthy, except for one thing, her thyroid… She’s got Hyperthyroidism. And for this, she now gets tablets that according to the Vet, she’d have to get for the rest of her life. Thankfully, she seems to be doing really well with them, and she’s happy as always. I have to put the little tablets in a chicken or turkey meat bread spread, make a little tiny ball out of it and put it in her bowl with her normal food. That way she eats up the tablet every day without a problem.
Murli, Sonic and Samantha send out lots of head rubs and nose kisses to all their sweet furfriends! We all hope you’re enjoying a wonderful holiday!
