My latest post…

My latest post seems to have saddened some visitors. Therefore two pictures to cheer you up.

First, yesterday evening I had gambas for supper. My Master is allergic to sea-food – except fish. My Mistress bought a pack of big organic gambas – organic because they are supposed to be less destructive of the environment and don’t have too negative a social impact. Expensive, of course! But the local supermarket sells them 20% or 30% cheaper when the sell-by date is near. What a treat!

This Friday morning, as soon as the cat-flap was open I rushed into my garden and immediately felt there was something near the letter-box. I didn’t catch anything but I spent quite a pleasant moment.

This afternoon it is grey outside. My Master is reading a (serious) book, and I, Frimousse, am having a nap in my armchair.

The Great Adventure

I, Frimousse, upstairs yesterday evening

Since my friend RouXy is gone, I, Frimousse seem to sink into some sort of fog, where everything looks different – my garden does not look the same, my food doesn’t either. It also seems I’ve lost a part of my strength – I climbed up my lime-tree some days ago but I can’t climb the stairs with the agility that used to be mine. When my Masters stroke me, it takes more time for me to start purring. My Masters are worried. They thought the loss of my friend RouXy had broken my spirit. But now they are wondering – you know I can read my Master’s mind – whether I am approaching the end of the Great Adventure of life…

I, Frimousse, this  Thursday morning in my garden
