8 months … we are growing up

Our cats continue to be lots of fun and great companions. Seems like yesterday that they arrived at our house.

Enjoy our pictures taken in June.

7 months and counting

Life continues to be fun here at „Hotel Cat“! They are growing like weeds. Benny is close to 5 kg now. Leoni seems to stay tiny kitty and weighs about 3.8 kg, but that may change. British Shorthairs apparently grow until they are 3 yrs old I’ve been reading. That should be interesting to watch.

We have discovered Benny to be a really scared fellow when it comes to strangers in the house. Sometimes we go outdoors together – being carried, of course – but he is not fond of the noises and always happy to be back in the safety of the house.

On the other hand, Leoni is not disturbed by strangers. She just continues to be herself and just like Stella-The-Cat used to do it she will be around when someone is in the house. She could miss out on something. That little girl is quite a busy one if I may say so. Benny tends to rest much more and Leoni is his personal fitness trainer.

More and more their characters are becoming more evident. Benny is the cuddler while Leoni doesn’t need too much body contact. She tolerates it though when we need to cuddle her. 🙂 Boy, can she „talk“ though. Looking for her brother can be quite the noisy undertaking. Benny likes to talk as well, but not as noisy as his sister.

Here are some pictures of the last few weeks of our little Brits.

Week #8 – Being a lazy cat

Not much happened during my 8th week at my new home. I have pretty much taken over the house. Training Mr. and Mrs. Nice is progressing well. During the week it rained a lot and I stayed indoors and enjoyed lots of hugs and peace & quiet. The weekend was sunny and I wanted to take the opportunity and be outside a lot.This is the chair Mrs. Nice likes to use outside a lot. I found it is a really nice place to relax and take it easy. I wonder if I could have it? Don’t think so …

Have I told you that I enjoy watching television. My servants think this is funny and of course, they’ve taken a picture of me.

My favorite spots when I can’t go outdoors are my scratching post and my basket. Since I have been living at my new home, I found that playing is lots of fun. Mr. Nice plays a lot with me when he gets home from work and I look forward to it every night. However, playing by myself is fun, too. They’ve bought these tiny balls I like to play with. Mrs. Nice says I look like someone playing soccer when I play with those. Ribbons are also fun to play with. Mrs. Nice got them in all different colors for me.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my little story, even though not much has happened. Next week’s story should be more exciting. I will tell you how I am working my way into the bedroom. 🙂
