Two years ago I adopted two rescue cats from the Tierschutzverein Berlin (Berlin Animal Shelter), specifically from the difficult adoption list, which normally entails palliative adoptions. I brought them home within a week from each other, beginning with Cherry, since Lolita was still in recovery from surgery for tumour removal. At the time they were

For those of us who have lost a dear one at some point or another, the holidays are the most difficult to get through. I still can´t get over how much I miss my parents each Christmas, and it has already been three years. But this year, there is somebody else I miss terribly: Champagne.
Champagne was one of the rare cats who loved rides on any kind of vehicle. Her least favourite was airplanes, and I always marveled at her capacity to sit for long hours in a car without complaining. Trains she found interesting as well, but what made her happiest most of all were bus rides. For
In Memoriam Champagne – The TravelCat DivaJune 2013 – November 4, 2019 My spirit animal and emotional support companion crossed The Rainbow Bridge today.

I had great plans for this weekend, including all the things I wanted (needed) to write, but Champagne had other plans.

Dear Human Blog Readers, Hey there, sorry I skipped writing on my usual Sunday, but I had emotional support duties and when it comes to Mom, she takes priority. Anyway, I want to bust a myth that keeps floating around among you humans, and that is the ludicrous idea that we cats have nine lives.
Dear Human Blog Readers, Here I am again, back to tattle a tale, and basically to let you know how the nincompoop heatings is back in working condition! As promised, it took the humans three days, to get the ball rolling. Some took cold baths, others none, and the more creative ones had buckets or
Dear Human Blog Readers, My job as a blogging cat is to tattletale on what the humans do or don´t do, whichever the case may be. Some days there are fun things to report, others, well, it is more like an existential implosion. As a cat diva, I demand certain comforts in life, air conditioning
Dear Human Blog Readers, How can it be Monday again? It seems as though I barely got into the weekend mood and mode, and next thing I know Mom is heading out the door on her way to work. It rained all day yesterday and was pretty stormy late into the night. This morning we
