Cat House Masters

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

This week we have been SO generous!

Care to elaborate a little for our readers, Sasha?

Well, to just mention one extremely generous thing we did this week, we let Zoe and her friend Giovanna make a cat house for, yes, another cat. To be specific, they made it for a tiny gray and white kitten named Hugo who lives in Giovanna’s neighbor’s house.

That’s right! That’s just how nice we are. It was worth the sacrifice when we saw the pictures and videos of how much Hugo ended up loving it!

Here are some pictures and a video of the completed palace before they surprised the kitten with it:

You can see Giovanna’s cat, Totoro, also being generous as he helps the girls by giving it a test run:

Hugo especially liked the “get-away clear room”. Because he could get away from the dog, Rosie, but still see and interact with her:

High five Sasha! We just made the world a better place!

FUN FACT:

The last common ancestor of dogs and cats lived about 42 million years ago.

Pyramid power!

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

We’ve been waiting for spring to come, but the snow keeps coming down.

It’s great for me! But I’m not so thrilled. So I am mostly inside reading a book of poetry, while Lola is outside catching snowballs that Zoe throws to her.

I highly recommend the book “I Could Pee on This and Other Poems by Cats” by Francesco Marciuliano. Zoe’s Auntie Hanne in America sent us the book. Here are some pictures of the book:

I finished the book and I started to get bored. And my paws got cold from playing with snowballs for so long. So Zoe and her friend made us a pyramid palace that we could play in. When it was done, we pretended to be ancient Egyptian cats. That was fun! Here are some pictures of it:

FUN FACT:

Cats are commonly believed to have been domesticated in Egypt around 5000 years ago, but a grave containing human and cat skeletons in Cyprus suggests that cats may have been domesticated there as early as 9500 years ago.

Zoe says that the only thing that would make me more perfect would be if I were as big as a giant rabbit.
