Homecoming And A Pawsome Get Together in Switzerland

THE HUMAN: As you know I was away in Switzerland for a week and just got home (though I am leaving again for another week tomorrow to visit Prince Edward Island and Calgary!). The cats were happy to see me but tried to play it cool…

AMARULA:

AMARULA: Yawwwwn. Oh, you’re back. We’re you gone? That would explain why the housekeeping has fallen so far behind. This floor needs a good cleaning! When will the truck be arriving with all the gifts your brought back from Switzerland for me??

ZULU and FRODO:

ZULU: What the heck! She’s back! Well it’s about time you came home! How could you leave us?? We are not going to take this sitting down! Right Frodo?

FRODO: Well I kinda really missed mom Zulu, can’t I go hug her?? I promise to be angry with her tomorrow

ZULU: No! Just look away and ignore her!

ZULU: Now I’ll give her the stink eye while you pretend to fall asleep because you are so unimpressed with her arrival!


THE HUMAN: Best of all, I told Claire, a fellow cat blogger at the Swiss Cats, I was going to be traveling in Switzerland and one of the towns I visited was just a few minutes from where she lives so we got together for a drink in Vevey, Switzerland! It was wonderful. We spent a couple of hours talking about our favorite subject: cats (though Amarula was not happy I returned home with the smell of Swiss cats on my clothes)!! Better yet I got to practice my French with Claire! It was a wonderful evening!

Sandra and Claire in Switzerland!

Sadly, I am off again today for another week of traveling so please forgive me if I don’t visit your blogs for another week!!

FRODO: What do you mean you’re leaving again!! Who will rub my belly!? Come back mommy!

Guess Who’s Back?

It’s Tony! He’s the neighbor’s cat who comes to visit my backyard sometimes. You may remember that Frodo befriended him and then was promptly let astray.

Tony clearly feels very comfortable here.

Amarula is not so enamored with Tony!

Zulu has not made up his mind yet…

ZULU: He has such nice fluffy fur. Is it possible that this Tony character is as good looking as me? That will not do…

Frodo was quick to welcome Tony back for the first visit of the summer as Amarula looked on cautiously!

FRODO: Yippee! Tony, my brother from another mother!

Amarula could not decided whether she wanted to let Tony stay or not…

Finally Amarula let the two boys hang out together!

After all, who could say no to that face?!

Frodo Gets Led Astray (Again)

FRODO: As you know, my new bestie Tony (the neighbor’s cat and Play-Doh’s brother) has been visiting me a lot lately! I love spending time with him! He seems to have a higher tolerance for my companionship than my other besties and siblings Zulu and Amarula!

FRODO: I love following him around. For some reason his humans let him go everywhere! So I just knew he would lead me on a great adventure like…GASP…BEYOND THE FENCE……

FRODO: I tried to return when I heard mom yell for me to stop! I really did! But what’s a daredevil, dapper orange mancat gonna do when he hears adventure call!?

FRODO: He answers of course!

FRODO: So I pretended not to hear mom and followed Tony into the Great Unknown!

FRODO: It was amazing to watch Tony in adventure mode! I have so much to learn! Sadly, mom quickly came and brought me inside. She was not pleased that I went beyond the fence!

FRODO: So I am gonna wait by the window and hope for Tony to return so we can go off again on another exploration of the Great Unknown!

Frodo’s New Friend Has A Name

FRODO: You may remember that I met a new friend a couple of weeks ago. I was so happy to meet him (though Zulu and Amarula seem just a little less enamored with him). Well it turns out he lives just a few houses away with my other friend Play-Doh! They are brothers (from a different mother). He really seems to have taken a shine to Zulu’s favorite tunnel. His name is Tony!

FRODO: Though Zulu is afraid of him (of course, Zulu also thinks his own shadow is out to get him) and Amarula just thinks he’s “a no good, overly fluffy, trespassing ne’er-do-well nincompoop” I have studied him from all angles….

FRODO: From the left….

FRODO: And from the right…

FRODO: … and I have come to the conclusion that he wants to be my friend and it will only be a matter of time until we are besties! I don’t see any reason at all not to love him.

FRODO: (Though I will admit he doesn’t seem like the sharpest knife in the drawer…)

Frodo Meets (Yet Another) New Friend!

FRODO: What’s this? Play-Doh my good pal must be here for another visit! Wait a minute…

FRODO: Who are you? Play-Doh is grey and white and you are black and white! You’re not Play-Doh…but you sure smell good!

FRODO: Whoa buddy! I just wanna be your friend…and you’re the one visiting my yard!

FRODO: So what do you say, do ya wanna be friends?

FRODO: I’ll just take your silence as a YES to friendship!

FRODO: So what do ya wanna play? Follow the leader?

FRODO: Oh this is gonna be a terrific adventure! I can just feel it!
