Feline Dementia and Opera

I discovered this week that my dear Lolita, who has feline dementia at her ripe old age of 15, formally known as feline cognitive disfunction system (CDS), reacts very well to opera. I usually have cat music (yes, it is a thing! And there is even an App for it) running in the background for

May 2020 Cover Girl Cherry

What a way to start the day! Celebrating Cherry’s journey from anxious rescue cat with PTSD to cover girl! I couldn’t be prouder of her and inspired by her determination to make up for the lost years. The announcement was made on June 8 but I just discovered the certificate today, which is just as

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

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.

So we had some guests…

Dear Human Blog Readers, there are some customs that we felines will never fully understand, one being parties, and the other Halloween. 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

Monday Again?!

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
