Gattinas Summer Journey

So the Lady of the House, too, took the looong journey to northern germany (sleeping and, well, snoring most of the time) and now she is so content and happy with the weather, her big garden and all the interesting things to explore there.

Don’t even think about it…

I love my big, beautiful girl.


After much playing, scrutinizing and prowling about in the garden, the Lady of the House settles down for a well-deserved nap 🙂

Love Your Pet Day

Brace yourselves: The americans are celebrating the National Love Your Pet Day every Feb. 20th., you can find it all over the social networks. Well, I’m a born and raised bavarian, but nonetheless here’s my contribution: My beloved Lady of the House.


For those who get it 🙂

The Queen…

The Lady of the House in her “royal position”… 🙂


Two of my best friend’s new cats. Cuteness overload!

Smol Girl on a Big Journey

So we had a 10 minute countryside drive to my sister in law’s house today… 🙂 Gattina is generally very relaxed when she’s in the car, but this time she wasn’t “trapped” in her transport basket but could wander about almost freely. She was so curious and excited by all the fascinating sights from the…

My beloved girl…

The Lady of the House again

This is her, enjoying the first sunbeams in the morning in the northern german refuge. Of course on her (yes – of course it’s hers!) favourite pile of garden waste. She’s so happy, content and relaxed – what a life for a cat.


Here’s the Lady of the House lying in her favourite spot, where the catnip grows 🙂


It seems there was something “International Cat Day” going on these days that I have shamefully neglected. So here’s my belated contribution: “Gattina”, the Lady of the House.

High Seat for the Lady of the House.

              Since the Lady of the House was so excited about all the tall trees in the northern germany refuge, I made her a stance that she can sit in and observe things from above. Precisely as she likes it. It consists of a wooden potato storage box from…


So this is the girl next door in the northern germany refuge. Her name is “Patch” and she’s sooo pretty, sooo nice and sooo cute. I fall for her 🙂

Cat Toy

I wanted to create something for the Lady of the House to play with and stimulate her a little when it’s cold and rainy outside and she doesn’t want to prowl around in her garden. Just hot-glue some of those inside toilet paper cardboard rolls into a carton box, randomly drop in some favourite cat…

I’ll just leave this here. I can’t help it… One ugly-looking, super-happy good boi!


The occasional photo of the lady of the house… 🙂

I’ll just leave this here 🙂

The Lady of the House: Gattina Picture Compilation

So here’s an image-collection of my big, beautiful, bulky and brave still-a-kitten Lady of the House “Gattina”. A german slang word for a cute small kitten is “Maunzele” (“Meower”) and that’s what I still call her – and “Gattina” is Italian for “Kitten” – that says it all, although she’s really more of a “Big…

New Cat on the Block

My stepbrother got a new housemate! Cute little fellow.

I’m glad everybody is hard at work

The Lady of the House

May I introduce to you: “Gattina” my most beloved and precious Lady of the House. Unofficial Head of State in my dwelling, cheerer-up in bad times and general scurrying-around sunshine. We found her 11 years ago under a bush in Italy, abandoned by her mother, skinny, sick and hungry and we slowly pampered her back…


Welcome Carl. Carl is chilled the whole day, nibbling on some algae, hitching an occasional free ride on the back of a snail and generally hanging around with his friends Al, Gus, Sam and Dick. Be like Carl.

Fishtank Weather

After changing some water today, I added a liquid filter medium to the tank that I heavily rely on (EasyLife flüssiges FIltermedium, on Amazon). Always looks like a cloudy november morning for some hours.

DIY Fishtank Vol. 2

The small Nano Tank that I set up two weeks ago proved just too small. It’s too hard to maintain a good water quality with so little water in the tank and also it got too much direct sunlight wich made algae growth literally skyrocket. So I set up a new tank with more capacity…

DIY-Fish-Tank Population:

Now this is the population that I have dwelling in my Self-made Nano-Fish-Tank. Even the cat approves:…

Nano Fishtank DIY Build

Since there are mere shitloads of “Nano-Fish-Tanks” available online nowadays and me having been an old fish-lover for years, I decided to make my own tank from materials that I had still lying around….

Gattinas kennel

So i made a “cat kennel” for my little lady. She loves it so much – sitting in there, napping a little and diligently observing all that’s going on around her from her “safe place”.
