Special edition

Big things have been happening in this house. Not once, not twice, but three times and at the moment I don't see an end to it yet. That actually makes me very happy because the big thing is that Meffi started coming back upstairs for longer than 45 seconds!
Therefore this post is dedicated to her which is a good thing as you hardly ever get to see pictures of her. Mom had a lot more snapshots, but with many hmms and pooohs and oh mys she finally cut it down to the ones I'm showing you now.

It's amazingly funny how a human can freak out about a cat making her way upstairs. "My camera! My camera!" Did she think I would fetch it for her? There is this opposable thumb issue, you know.
Of course I kept my cool. Against general belief in this house I did not stare with an open mouth. I did not try to get near that gorgeous tigress and give up in a pathetic way dropping on the floor and rolling around because I didn't know what else to do when she wouldn't let me. I observed, calm and collected as always and only had a slightly condescending smile for Greebo who followed her in disbelief when she did her rounds.

A good spot to see who's coming upstairs
The window sills downstairs are nicer

I can see you, but you can't see me, hehe.

Those shawls are new and I wasn't even asked to help picking them!
Beware the Shadow of the Tigress!
Editing a picture of Dad holding Esme, very interesting. She might have to pay for that.
What's that up there? Cat painting? Why do they need fake cats, they got me!
The boss of the house! (More like a seriously confused Ponder, believe me, he was too funny - Mom)

For those who wondered about Esme taking over Dad's lap - here she is


  1. Lovely cat diary excerpts! cute photo's! So glad Meffi is open to new adventures upstairs if only for a bit.

    1. You should have heard her today! Esme and I just looked at her (ok, I admit Esme got a bushy tail for absolutely no reason) and her little pencil tail grew to a giant brush. I think they could still hear her 50 miles away.

  2. You are so lucky to live in a house where things happen every now and then. I tried to introduce some new eating procedures to my mom, and she claimed I have dementia!!!!!!!!! So I went back to the old rutine *sigh*

    1. Pfff, humans. Clueless creatures. Sometimes I wonder why we even bother and try to teach them.
      It's probably that little thing called love.
