What’s a blog without some cat photos? And upcoming London trip

I’m leaving for London  tomorrow! So excited! It’ll be my 11 th visit (it was really a coincidence when I booked my flight for 11 th of May!). I’ve got lots planned for this trip. I’m sorry that I haven’t had time/willpower to write about my recent trip to beautiful Stockholm but as soon as I got back from that weekend trip I started thinking about my London trip and I just couldn’t focus enough to write properly about my time in Stockholm. When I get back from this London trip I’ll write about Stockholm and I’ll post a lot about London:)

So, in the meantime you can have a look at my cat‘s photos! His name is Munchkin and my husband named him after his favourite game. He’s been with us for almost three years now. We got him from an animal shelter. He adores my husband who hasn’t had a cat  before. Our cat spends his days chasing balls, eating, sleeping and cuddling with us. I squeezed one of his photo before in my post about different cats that I’ve encountered on my trips but he definitely deserves his own post ( hmm…maybe my hubby also deserves a post? but he isn’t really reading my blog so..:) ). Of course, you also saw him attacking my Christmas tree in this post (the cat, not the husband!). I do miss my husband and my cat when I travel alone occasionally. So, thank you for reading my posts and I’ll talk to you/write more when I get back next week!

Xoxo

Cats of Europe

Warning! Proceed with extreme caution if you don’t like cats!

I love cats. There’s one cute ginger tomcat that wakes me up every morning with his meow Feed me, Pet me. Although he treats me like I’m his servant I adore him to bits. I’d bite my husband’s head off if he would even think of behaving like our cat does. On the other hand my husband sometimes complains that I’m much nicer to our cat than I am to him 🙂 . But that’s normal for cats and cat parents and if you’re a dog person then you can’t understand this special relationship between the so-called cat owner and their pet. Sadly, our cat can’t join me on my travels (however,there are some cool cats that travel with their servants 🙂 ) which means that I have to leave him in the loving hands of his cat grandparents (e.g. my parents). He likes spending time in their place and they adore having him around. But for some reason or another I often seem to come across cats on my travels. And what do I do then? I take a picture of that foreign cat and try to pet it. And in that moment I miss my cat and wish that he could travel with me.

So, I wanted to show you photos of the cats that I came across on my trips. I didn’t go through all of my photos (just the most recent ones) because then this post would never happen. Some of the cats that I encountered were someone’s pets while others were street cats. I saw some in the streets while others in the park or at a historic monument and some even showed up outside my hotel room.
Without further ado here are the cats from around Europe:
