Time flies

"Einszweidrei! im Sauseschritt, läuft die Zeit; wir laufen mit." That's what the German humorist Wilhelm Busch said in 1877, translated that could be "One-two-three, in hasty race, time is running, we keep pace." as I found elsewhere.

These pictures of my sister and me were taken merely eight years (seven years, ten months, two weeks and three days if you want the exact time) ago.
We had invaded the household not long before that and captured hearts immediately. How could we not, just look at us! Are we adorable in this picture or are we ADORABLE? I'm the taller one, by the way. The picture was taken when we were sitting at the second floor window that became one of our favorite spots because pigeons liked to fly close by. When we grew older, we felt they did it on purpose to taunt us. Even though Mom agreed on that, we couldn't convince her to take the cat net off the window. 

These pictures were taken two days ago. We might have changed since then. Just a tiny teensy bit. We both grew, we both gained some weight, but we didn't lose our curiosity. That time we were looking out of the side window on the first floor (the second floor has been lost to us for quite some time now, but that's ok, we could handle that amazingly fast, much to Mom's joy and relief), and it was 5 am. Outside doesn't just look dark because it was obviously dark, but also because the house there is under construction at the moment which means lots of scaffolds, plastic covers and stuff.

 Boy, we sure had some fun in these eight years.


  1. What fun to be in the middle of a construction zone! Do you try to help?

    I always help and love the sound of power tools. Sometimes, I'm told I help too much, but that doesn't stop me!

    Cool photos - you and Esme haven't changed a bit!

    Your friend, Elle (the black lab)

    1. We always help with everything, even if it's just supervising the humans!
      Don't let them stop you, Elle, they are not the bosses, no matter what they think.

      I hope you are well, my friend!

  2. What perfect specimens of feline beauty! But what did you see in the dark..?

    1. Thank you!

      We saw vampires and ordinary bats, a city Sasquatch, the moon, standing cars and Jack the Ripper!
      (I don't care if Mom says I'm just fantasizing.)
