A rainy cold and windy spring. The cats want some sun!

Like almost all over Europe, it’s been mainly cold, windy and rainy this spring. Again and again, the alps got snow, and the temperatures dropped as the ice cold wind came through. We did have a few really nice and war days, but they were usually just a day between rain and cold.

Cats all over miss the sun, as do their humans. Ralph especially does not like the cold and so we keep the heat going. It’s just that sometimes I have to turn down the heat, because I get hot so easily, but then Ralph feels a bit chilly. The heating we have is awesome and really creates a lovely warm apartment. So it’s all lovely and nice in our home. But the cats, especially Murli, would love to be able to go in and out onto the balcony as they please, but it’s too cold to leave the balcony door open. The same goes for the windows. I put a cat safety net on the windows in the summer, so I can leave them open and the cats can hang out there, enjoying the fresh air and the sun.

I always think about what else I can do to make the cats happy, so I got them a board with a cushion on it (this one), to create an even surface for them to lie on. Because the window sill on our living room window isn’t even and has different levels. This window design is typical for old buildings like ours here. This is what it looks like:

And now with the cushion board, they have a comfy little place to relax or watch what’s going on outside:

I have to wrap a towel around it, because otherwise Samantha would rip the cushion to shreds lol.

But isn’t she a sweetheart? She loves it on there. After I took this picture, I filmed her for a bit as well:

(Excuse the dirty window. We just had a construction site creating a lot of dust, and then it rained…) She loves the soft board and now she can finally lie down at the living room window properly. it’s lovely to see that happy little girl <3 Murli and Sonic enjoy it just as much.

The other new things I got for them are two water fountains / water dispensers for cats. Because it keeps the water clean all day. The absolutely love it and drink even more than before. It’s awesome. Sonic is the one who has the longest drinks and so it was easy to take a picture with him drinking.

Murli, Samantha and Sonic are all doing really well with their medicines. They are all happy and feeling their best. Murli is back to normal now, full of life again, happy and  talkig a lot, and following me around. She is really busy watching the birds at the moment. I feed them and have two bird feeders, one in the bushes and the other on the metal pole for our washing line on the balcony, so it’s not right in or near the balcony. Murli is out there as much as possible right now with the cold. But we did have a few warm days, like when I did this video of her.

It’s purrfect kitty TV for Murli. Thankfully she does not try to jump up to get to the birds, she just likes to watch them and talks to them. Samantha and Sonic would not jump at them either.

Today, the icy wind is still blowing, it’s cloudy and dark and it will probably rain again. We all are waiting for the summer and hope it will come eventually. It’s still spring now anyway, even if it does not seem like it with snow on the surrounding mountains… The following images are of the webcam that is located on a nearby mountain, that’s just outside of the city and about 1400m. That’s why it’s so cold.

I want to go up there with Ralph in the summer, because it’s lovely and I haven’t been up there since my childhood. There’s a restaurant up there which serves awesome sweet things as well. You get up there by cable car, which I really look forward to. The times I was up there as a kid, we walked up or we got taken up by car. So it will be my first time with that cable car, and I’m sure to film and take pictures of it all.

Hope you’re all well! Ralph, the kitties and myself wish everyone a nice day <3

Murlis morning at the Vet

Hello lovely readers!

As I wrote yesterday, Murli and I had an appointment at our Vet this morning. After a night of waking up all the time, I was seriously tired and sleepy when I got up. I feel like I haven’t woken up properly all day and still feel the same.

I put Murli into the carrier and off I went on my bicycle again, with the carrier hanging on my side with the shoulder strap. Murli does not complain and remains quiet while in the carrier and this time I didn’t record our trip on the GoPro. It was a grey morning and an icy cold wind was blowing. Murli was covered under her blanket in the carrier, as she always does. She likes to hide underneath it.

Our appointment was at 10:30am and when we arrived at the Vet, the waiting room was empty! So we didn’t have to wait long at all. The waiting room filled up quickly though after a while.

The Vet petted her a while to calm her down and then had a look in her mouth. Murli never likes it, no matter how careful the Vet is, so she started hissing and growling. Unfortunately, it wasn’t clear which of her teeth was causing her that pain, and all of them need to be sorted out.

If it would have been just one obvious tooth, it could have been sorted our right away today, but because that’s not the case, and the teeth really aren’t good, we will come back on Wednesday again. Then, she’ll be sedated and her teeth will get sorted out. I will bring her to the Vet at 11am and leave her there 😭.

The good news is, she’s in very good health with her Thyroid working fine again thanks to the medication, her weight is perfect, her heart and other organs are fine, so everything should go well. Of course I’ll be all nervous, waiting for the call to hear I can pick her up again. But it has to be done, as she’d be in pain if it doesn’t get sorted out. Poor girl!

She got a shot of antibiotic and a shot of pain medicine at the Vet. I also have another pain tablet for her for tomorrow.

Murli is fast asleep now, and not in pain.

Here is a video I took today while we were in the waiting room. She was giving me little mews and trying to hide under her blankie as usual.

Samantha is doing a lot better too! She has not been throwing up and the runs have stopped.

Sonic is fast asleep, but he’s been doing well too. It will take a bit longer to find the best way to handle the symptoms of his auto immune disease. He’s having a course of medication for a month and then we’ll see. But he’s certainly not as sniffly anymore and he’s a happy little boy!

Thank you all for your lovely comments! We will keep you updated on everything. Ralph, the cats and me wish all of you a nice week!

Hugs!!!

December 31, 2016 Caturday New Years Eve

Hey there everyone! Happy Caturday New Years Eve! It’s now 9pm in Austria and Central Europe. Murli had her meal at 7pm, then we played and cuddled, and now she’s curled up in bed and napping.

 

I’m sitting at the computer and try to catch up with all the lovely followers all over our accounts, like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and here too lol. I’m staying home tonight, like every New Years Eve. Hanging out with Murli near me and doing everything to keep her happy and comfy.

I just have to say it again. I am so happy and amazed at how many absolutely wonderful new human friends and kitty friends we have made these past months! And we still meet more almost every day! You’re all so kind and we want to say Thank you to all of you, who followed us, and who we made friends with for the kind words, and the patience, since I am not always able to catch up quickly with everyone.

It’s totally cold again today! We had -11°C / 12.2°F in the morning and it only got up to 2°C / 35.6°F during the day. Now it’s below freezing point again decreasing further. It’s certainly going to be a very cold night.

We hope everyone has a happy and safe Caturday New Years Eve! Be careful and be safe! Murli and I wish everyone a purrfectly pawsome new year, filled with love, happiness, hugs, treats, naps, hugs, pawhugs, purrs, good health, friendship and peace! We love you all! Happy new Year friends!
