  Isn’t the SOUND of this word just magical? Any word beginning with a HISSS ing sound is of course fantastic to my feline mind-   

BUT this one just has that extra special something!   I must confess I fall into a trance by a mere whisper of “Shrrrrrimps”! It sends my whiskers aquivering and my mind gets TOTALLY BLISSED out!  

I immediately start DAY dreaming of  a GINORMOUS  bag  of the little pink wonders  on the kitchen table, just waiting FOR ME!  
 Well, of course there some other members of this household that have an interest too…..SelmaViktoria is ready to jump out of her skin at the prospect of these little pink wonders. She has even been known to try and pinch them straight off my MOM’s plate…. I would never do anything so rude…. I allow MOM one or two shrimps, just for herself….  I was not expecting it to be a Shrimpy day today, actually!  I was lying on the couch on the tapestry cushions having a nice little nap when I realized that something exciting was going on in the kitchen. My ears became thrice their normal size and I pointed them towards SOME HIGHLY INTERESTING SOUNDS! RUSTLE RUSTLE DING DANG DING!Hmmmmmm. Unmistakable sounds….Bread being pushed into the toaster. Toast and shrimps for MOM’s lunch! And probably white wine too! Well, she can keep the wine stuff- yuk! WOW! CHARLIE  has woken up now so I must RACE him  into the kitchen. CHARLIE loves them little wonders just a s mush as I do….hehehe

 We know that OUR WONDERFUL MOM will share with us!



IN CASE ANYONE IS WONDERING- I am happy with two or three shrimps- that’s a lot for a feline indoor tiger!As u all know too many shrimps are not good for us. We should never eat too much salty food. “Happy days !”as OUR favourite The Naked Chef Jamie Oliver would say!  

 And Jamie- if YOU ARE A GOOD BOY and eat your greens I might post one of your recipes here!

Amazing lazy sunshine day

It is SUNDAY morning and here comes

the S U N !  


 I absolutely LOVE the warm feel of the sun on my fur!

My favourite spot is in the southfacing sitting room window. In the window seat, between some books and a couple of stonefaced lion bookends.They sure could do with some sun those dudes, all greyfaced and glum looking! Anyway, there I lie, I just stretching  out and PURRRRING  with delight! It makes me feel I am KING of the world! I think it is one of my favourite pastimes!

OKAY,  so it is also Charlie’s favourite spot but we will not go into that here and now, please! I MUST concentrate on my sunbathing!

As you my loyal readers know, I have a nice thick fur coat with white woolly undercoat but I still think that the sun is something that really MAKES ME FEEL SOOOOOO

 “the cat’s pyjamas”!


It is an art to lie in the sun ALL day! And , MY FRIENDS, I am a MASTER of this art!

1.First I make sure that I have eaten a good breakfast so that my tummy is satisfied! Today I had tuna from ABBA- the best Swedish canned tuna in water!

2. Then I had a real looong drink of water.

3. Then I decided to have a tiny tiny catnap on top of the LAPTOP before I jumped up into the windowseat. 


See my huge yawn a la Steven Tyler LOL! 


AMAZING how similar I and  Areosmith screamin demon  are!


Poor MOM had to do some work for most of the day so she missed out on a beautiful experience! Still, it is of course important that she is busy earning some cash so that I have luxurious cushions to stretch out  and dream beautiful dreams on!!!

Around 11 a m Mom went off to the shops and I decided to lie there and think about my blog.

HAHAHA!  All of a sudden I felt the warmth spread all over my back, I closed my eyes just for a second or two, and then all of a sudden  I went to sleep! I curled up into a ball and dreamt of butterflies that I kept chasing in the breeze!


Oh, it was so much F U N !

The next thing I knew was the front door opening and my MOM is  coming home from her shopping expedition. WOW! I CAN HEAR THE RUSTLE OF SHOPPING BAGS! M u s t inspect NOW!

AND MY BELLY is rumbling and rumbling after all that chasing around after those fluttery things!

My gosh, time certainly flies when you have fun in the sun!    

Meanwhile- Dream on, Dream on til your dreams come true,  RIGHT?
