Holidaymakers

My daughter is spending a holiday of her dreams visiting her friend who lives in California. For a good three weeks, she will be enjoying the scenery of this beautiful state. Not to mention the good company and the shores of the Pacific Ocean. She has been a bit of a mermaid at least from the age of four.


While she is away, we are hosting her Maine Coon cats. This is their first visit to our new home. They have settled in quite nicely thanks to the thick and soundproof structure of the 1920s building.



In our previous home, the living room was off-limits to the large-sized Maine Coons because of a number of fragile objects, the rather expensive home theatre system and the piano. 




Now we are trying to declutter to be able to keep all the spaces open and immediately one of Tidy Tiger’s favourite places to drowse on is the piano fallboard. Sheena prefers the safety of the extra bed in the adjacent second living room where we have the TV.


The only thing the cats are having trouble getting used to is the sound of the apartment door. And visitors, of course, but that can never be avoided with these shy beauties.

  1. I'm glad your beautiful visitors are settling down in their new surroundings. It must be a bit strange having cats in your new home! I hope your daughter has a wonderful time! Sarah x

    1. They were a bit puzzled at first when they could see down to the street - luckily the windowsills are rather broad. My daughter (your namesake by the way although spelled differently) lives on the 9th floor but the view from her balcony is mostly green. She is certainly having a great time with her 'one and only' from childhood.

    1. They are very used to us and all our things so the change of 'scenery' is actually going better than we expected.
