Am I cute or what?!

Filed under: Uncategorized — blindcopy @ 1:10 pm

It’s Friday and I’m at home – for the cats it’s the time they are allowed to play in the garden. If we lived in a colder country they could run freely all day long, I wouldn’t mind. But at over 40 degrees Celsius… Maybe I’m overprotective, but Feia already got lost outside once for 24 hours. And when I found her sitting under a car a couple of streets away from here, she looked like she’d been in the desert for a week: gaunt, desperate, scared, thirsty… I don’t wanna go through that again. And by the way – I think she’s learned her lesson, because she never crossed the path to the world outside the garden after that. Persian Atze on the other hand still tries whenever she thinks I don’t look.

If I don’t open the door to the garden quickly enough, kitties get really upset and try anything to make me open that freaking door. And since I’m an animal abuser by heart, I enjoy this minute of superiority, before I let them out. But that minute is already enough for tabby Feia to go mad. And if’s she’s desperate enough, she plays the “I’m too cute for you” game. While Atze gives up after a couple of seconds, Feia bends, rolls-over, smiles, pokes, kisses and caresses you until you can’t help yourself and her cuteness magically makes you open the door. Yep, she can do that to you – so you better not mess with Feia…

“I am cute… you feel light and happy… I am cute… but the air in here is getting sticky… I am cute… you wanna open that door…”

Then I open the door and…

“Yay, birdsssss. Which one of you wants to play with me first?”

“No?! 43 degrees Celsius is actually my feel-good climate. No?! I’m not too hot. All fine. You go inside now.”

I looooove lazy Fridays! And here are some Gerhard Richter inspired pictures:

From time to time, very sensitive people  recognise Feia for who she reaaalllly is :

A little Egyptian pharao, our little princess. I got this retouched photo from lovely blogger friend Anna. Her boyfriend Alexander had photoshopped it. It’s funny how those little things make me soooooo happy. You guys made my day! Thank you for the great pic! Alex and I loved it.


  1. oh, precious!!! i love kitties so much. we’re afraid to get one here- too many speeding cars on our otherwise quiet street, and we’re so scared of losing one that way.
    your cats are beautiful. 43C, omg, though…no wonder you’re afraid to let them outside for long!

    • damn – same here: lots of speeding cars. and trucks, since there’s still a lot of construction around our house. in general, dubai is not a good place for cats (even worse for dogs cause of the heat). at least most of the people treat their pets well and even stray cats are welcome

  2. If only Feia knew that this is a Harry Winston necklace she’s wearing at the picture!!! We’re glad you liked the photo!My boyfriend and I are cat lovers so we like finding cat photos and videos (like all the time)!! I have a stray cat in my garden, she’s black and white and one day I’ll post pictures of her! We always used to have cats in our garden (but we never take them inside the house), but now we have only one 😦 The climate is better here in Greece for them!

    • oh if you knew feia and atze personally! harry winston is just good enough for a princess cat like feia 😀 btw: now that you mention Greece – if we had a boy cat I think I would name him aristoteles (short “ari”) or even “onassis” (hm, for a girl cat “jackie o. wouldn’t be bad either). never been to Greece unfortunately. hope i can make it one day!

  3. Aahh, look at them – supercute! I think they secretly know they are in control… and Feia has total princess appeal. I’m really quite tempted to start the Catlovers United club.

    • you got it, Sabine. They are in control. sometimes i’m looking for the little remote control with which they make me go errands. Catlovers United Club – I’m totally in! 🙂
