There is a spider on the ceiling !

The button, where is the button ???

I just came from the groomer ! She said that I am becoming younger and younger ! I don't even have knots anymore and my hair is shorter.


That cats are special I knew, but Kim is even more than special. Maybe because she was born on Christmas Eve 18 years ago. My son fell in love with this little fur ball and took her home. So we know from where she comes, from the cat of my friend in London. Kim seemed to be a very calm kitty and didn't play much she always was with Pookie my other son's cat.

Then he had to work in Amsterdam and Kim didn't support the life in an apartment and not being able to go out. So he asked us to keep the two cats for 3 months until he would return to London. This was 15 years ago I think. From the very beginning Kim was an outside cat she lived outside slept outside and in winter she stayed in the basement. Very seldom she came to stay a bit with Poookie. She only ate during night when nobody saw her. She hated all humans and loved all animals dogs, birds, mousies included.

It was impossible to catch her an brush her and she was such a hairy cat. Taking her to the groomer was terrible. But there she behaved nicely. The years went on and we became used to have an nearly invisible cat. And then all changed since a few month. Slowly, slowly she moved into the house and Mr. G. became her big friend. She slept on his lap, and even allowed him to brush her a bit. That lasted also a couple of months. Then she changed again.

Only once I found her on Mr. G's Jeans on a chair and once even in my bed ! I was happy because I thought she had something with her hind legs but if she can jump then certainly not.

Ever since she is screwed on the rug always at the same place and only gets up when she is hungry or has to go out. Suddenly I am allowed to pet her what had never happened, she always ran away when she saw me, and ..... the cat who lived with us for years and said "meow" once a year became now a chatterbox.  Now she meows for food or if she doesn't like something, I didn't even know that she had such a sweet voice ! Her hair has shortened and she didn't have these awful knots anymore. Yesterday I took her to the groomer and nearly no hair came out and not a single knot on her belly. The groomer said that she looks younger and her fur is so soft ! From a nearly stray cat (with a home) Kim became a perfect house cat !

Rosie and Arthur are still the same now that it is cold  they prefer to stay inside and watch the world through the windows or sleep on sofas, chairs and beds.

Lovely selfies from the family. Kim is such a dear, and living a life she is happy to share with you, and you with her. We can not ask more than that though the getting younger bit is quite nice... to a point too MOL

Both Binga(17) and Boodie (16) have a bit of arthritis in their back legs, but they still can jump on chairs, the bed... and Binga still gets on counters, where she can annoy the humans! So I'm glad Kim is still able to get around when she wants. It seems that she has mellowed with age (unlike Binga...).

What a wonderful story about Kim. It is amazing, but I guess she is doing things in her own time. :)

Every one there looks great!
