Can you please be careful with fireworks?


Mobli has been sleeping in his styrofoam cave a lot lately.

The weather is prety cold and harsh for our kind of climate.
And although Mobli has a thick fur, it's good to be able to escape the northern winds.
And being served 3 meals a day helps :)

 Our cats eat cat grass.
 That's why everything in the house, especially green things,
need to be investigated thoroughly. 

 That's why the first snowdrop broke.

So I gave it a small bandage :)

Look at these wonderful colours!
This is what I've been eating for lunch today....
I'm such a lucky kenderfrau!

Last night we had the first snowfall.
Tonight we're expecting 7 degrees of frost.

The kenderman is busy wrapping up some of his tree ferns.
The biggest ones have become too large to bring them inside the barn.

With this dark and gloomy weather......
we'll stay inside or we might just go for a walk.

Wishing you a merry Christmas!

Favourite Female

I love Nim

She's (sometimes too) kind to Mats

Whenever she hears a strange sound, her neck length suddenly expands ;)
and her big green eyes grow even bigger than this :)

Perhaps you read my earlier post about Mobli's winter home. Otherwise you can read it here.

Eventually I cut a round hole in the side of the styrofoam box, added some extra hay,
added a bowl with food, closed the box and placed it under our carport.
Mobli has been sleeping there fore some time now in a cardboard box with woolen blanket.
Yesterday I opened the styrofoam box for the first time and the food tray was empty.
The newly shaped form in the hay showed me a cat had been sleeping there.
We're over the moon!!!
It must have been Mobli for sure!

Single Star

Dahlia merckii is still flowering in our garden

Last week the weather was pretty dark and gloomy.
We left home in the dark, we came home in the dark.
But yesterday we finally saw the sun again!

Exactly one week ago Gorki's lead singer Luc De Vos died. He wrote beautiful songs!
Mia will be played on all Belgian radio stations at 13.00 today (listen to Mia here). 
Quotes from Mia: "Mia heeft het licht gezien, ze vraagt kun jij nog dromen"
(Mia has seen the light, she asks can you still dream)
"Alleen Elvis blijft bestaan" (Only Elvis lives forever),
"Niemand zal verloren gaan" (No one will be lost)

another favourite of mine:

Enjoy your weekend!

Winter Home

It's getting colder and we have been worrying about Mobli.
Perhaps I should say feeling guilty towards Mobli.
If we didn't have cats already we would have invited him into our home.
This is really no option having two Bengals running around :)
So we started searching for a styrofoam box.
It has taken us a few weeks but finally my colleague Nonna brought me this box.
Thank you Nonna!

At first Mobli ignored the box completely!

Then I put some garden hay and some food in the box.....

and placed the box next to the backdoor.

The food seems to do the trick :)

Pop out

Mats likes to lie down in this long narrow plant tray.

He's a bit too big already...... and still growing :)

On wednesday I've been reorganising my cupboard.
Closely being observed by some curious cats...

Mats was fascinated by these drawers :)
