Alarm clock Roosje

Sponsored by The 7th Chamber – Cats and their food. Sacred is the word that best describes the preceding sentence. Roosje, as well as 99% of all cats in the world, believes we are her personal, professional and dedicated staff. Her food (three times a day, FYI) not ready at 7 AM? Drama queen in the house! The worst part of the week are weekend mornings.

H&M cat bookend

I absolutely adore H&M Home. They have opened a store a few months ago here in Antwerp, and I love just walking through the gorgeous towels and stunning candleholders. Last week, my eyes immediately spotted this book stand. It’s so damn cute and super modern at the same time! It fits perfectly in our modern living room. And Roosje… well, she couldn’t care less about this new addition to our household. (Extra bonus: you don’t have to cuddle or play with this black cat!).

Wish list for cats

I love shopping for Roosje. She owns the most beautiful cat beds in the world (literally: I even order beds on the other side of the world), and she has so many toys that other cats would become jealous of her toy stash. Every now and then, I make a wish list for our little ball of fur: a wish list for cats. Do you spoil your cat with new toys sometimes?

Book Review: Pure by Lucas and Cats

Een modern boek over katten is zeldzaam. Veelal zijn de varianten in de boekenwinkel ouderwets, de foto’s zijn van een niet zo hoogstaande kwaliteit en de pagina’s zijn te druk en versierd met allerlei grafische elementen die rechtstreeks uit de jaren ’90 komen. We moeten Lucas De Boeck dan ook dankbaar zijn, want dankzij hem zijn foto’s van katten niet meer lelijk melig, maar mooi vertederend.

A modern book about cats is rare. The ones you can find in the bookstore are often old fashioned, the photos are crap and the pages are too busy and decorated with all kinds of graphic elements that come straight from the 90’s. Thank you, Lucas De Boeck, for not making cat pictures ugly and boring, but pretty and endearing.

Let’s meet: Gizmo the Exotic Shorthair cat

Oké, we moeten eerlijk zijn: we houden van Gizmo omdat hij als twee druppels water op Roosje lijkt. Deze Amerikaanse knapperd hebben we ontdekt via Instagram en Roosje is gek op hem (en haar baasjes natuurlijk ook)! Niet alleen lijkt Gizmo op Roosje, ze poseren bijna identiek voor het fototoestel. Roosje was ook helemaal in de wolken toen ze een kerstkaartje van Gizmo aankreeg. Snappen doet ze het volgens mij niet, maar wij vinden het in ieder geval geweldig, zo’n tweelingbroertje!

Okay, we have to be honest: we love Gizmo because he and Roosje could be brother and sister. We have discovered this American handsome guy through Instagram and Rosie is crazy about him (and her owners as well)! Not only does Gizmo looks like Roosje, they pose almost identical for the camera. Roosje was over the moon when she got a Christmas card from Gizmo. I guess she does not understand it, but we think it’s great; a twin brother for our little girl!
