This Blog was the first one I started when I discovered blogging ! Sadly I can't continue my life has completely changed in the last 2 years. When my husband Rick was diagnosed Parkinson, and he had more and more difficulties to walk, we moved into an apartment.

The only cat who moved with us was little Rosie. All the others who lived with us in our house a cheerful inside/outside cat life passed away little by little. Arthur fell asleep forever in March, he just didn't wake up anymore. He was too old. It was better for him because he would never get used to an inside life. Rosie, now 15 got used to the inside life immediately and has completely changed. She is not shy anymore, she became a social cat, but she never leaves the apartment even if the door is open. She only goes out on our terrace when I am there too. Then came the lockdown and Rick's disease got worse and worse. He had to be hospitalized as he suffered hallucinations and I couldn't handle him anymore. After the hospital he was for nearly one year in a retirement home, where slowly slowly he also got Alzheimer. He also died in his sleep just like his beloved Arthur. 

Rosie is not an adventurous cat. She sleeps the whole day in her basket and runs around during the night. 

Rosie's inside cat life as only "child"

The cats who shared my life

I kept my main Blog WRITER CRAMPS in case you want to follow me and Rosie. I try to blog but sometimes I am just without any energy it is not easy to live without the man who was the love of your life.



Unfortunately the Butler has a disease which the doctors have to find out. So the maid has taken him to a specialized doctor and now he has a lot of appointments with others.

Therefore she has no time for me and I understand because anyway with the lockdown and my living now as an inside cat there is less to tell about me.

Keep me in mind that's what I do the whole day, I still continue to play during night..

But you still can follow the maid on her main blog WRITER'S CRAMPS

where without any doubt she also will talk about me ! "See" you there then !



On my watch tower 

                                                                     My favorite place



As all the other weeks I spent my time between my watch tower and my armchair and the night with my maid. The butler moves too much and he snores that's why I prefer to sleep with her !  

She was a bit angry with me, because I wanted to play which she misunderstood and I bit her in her hand ! Immediately there was a red color liquid which came out !  Of course I ran away before she could rant at me !


I was already up and waiting in the living room for her to show up ! The curtains were still closed.

Then she came, opened the curtains and I meowed hello, she told me that I am a bad girl, I wondered why apparently she had not appreciated that I had bit her  !

Then I made the planning of the day ! Behind me it smelled real good ! And the sun was shining !

 I hesitated a bit and looked left and right and then on the lawn four foors down, no cat around

I went outside and inspected the terrace ! It was the first time since before what they call Christmas that I have put a paw outside !

But there was nothing special, I didn't even drink the rain water, I decided to return inside.

I was still thinking what I should do and if I should do something, nothing came into my mind, I had eaten I was outside I had sniffed fresh air and let the sun shine on my fur. I think that was a full program for the day.

Therefore I decided not to bother with anything, and rolled into my favorite snail position for a good nap !





Look at my tail, I tried to say "Ooooh" 

I don't play with this thing ! And it is not selfie or play time !

Go out of here ! I don't want selfies to be taken while I take my bath !!

See when I im a good mood ....



I was shocked ! When the maid opened the curtains the world was white ! It had snowed for the first time this year !!! And quite a lot !

Of course I didn't put my paw in this white stuff, I preferred to watch inside through the window what was going on !


The maid discovered her artistic talent and draw this in the snow !

My little cat statues had all a white hat !

 It was fun to watch the birds

I remembered that in the other home my brother Arthur (who is in heaven now) used to sit on the table and watched the butler and the maid eating, and then he tried to steal their food on the plate !

I am not interested at all in the food, but I also like now to sit on the table and watch them eating, just to keep them company, so that they are not so alone in these lockdown days !

But that is then enough for the day, I retire and sleep on the bed or in my favorite chair !



I just look outside

Do I smell chicken ?

Yes ! but I don't like chicken !

Another lockdown week, which is nice for me because my servants are home most of the time !  The Butler disappears once a week to play cards with his friends, I don't know why he is so happy about that, if at least he would play a game hunting mousies, cards are so boring, they are flat and you can't play with them.
My maid too goes out to visit her friends or they come here. I love when they are here ! I jump from lap to lap and they pet me and talk to me and I always have a wonderful afternoon ! I even forget to sleep !
I love now to sit on the table and observe what they are doing.
When in the morning she opens the window doors to let in the fresh air, I find it cold and humid and

prefer to stay inside in the warmth and look out of the window

I also love to play for a while on my cat tower and when I have enough
I sit besides her and we watch TV. Not very interesting for me, so mostly I fall asleep and when they go to bed, I follow after a while and then I bring her to bed.

During the night I put my toys together besides my cat tower, but one mouse I left in her shoes ! She likes that, it makes her laugh. !
