Living with Feline Dementia (CDS)

Many of you have met Lolita already, housemate extraordinaire of Cherry. Although I adopted her together with Cherry (they were a package deal at the shelter), Lolita had to stay back another 10 days in the infirmary to recover from her second tumour removal surgery. Lolita is 15, a cancer survivor, half deaf, half blind,

The Reluctant Model

For those of you active on social media, you might have come across this portrait of Cherry last night or this morning. While writing a blog entry the other evening, she came up to me, and sat right under the very lamp that I had used for the Grace Kelly shoot and glared holes into

Adoptiversary #2: Lolita and Cherry

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

Emergence II

The night terrors are back with a vengeance. It has been a while and I thought I had put it behind me, but for whatever reason, I haven’t been sleeping well lately. The dreams are vivid, far too vivid for my liking and it seems as though I am caught up in one of my

Rebuilding

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.

I think parties and guests are a great thing, and thoroughly objected to being locked in the bedroom with Cherry and Lolita. We all wanted to join in the fun and check out

My Nine Lives

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.

This thing called Autumn

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

Death to the Nincompoops!

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

Thoughts on Forever Homes

Dear Human Blog Readers, It’s the weekend again, and time for me to share a few thoughts on my mind. Mom wrote her blog this morning about where home is and what home is all about, so let me give our our (the feline side of the family) perspective on the matter. For those of
