Mara said I had to tell you a little about myself. Well, that is very easy: I am a cat and the most beautiful at that! Anybody who says different should have their eyes checked! .... Oh, Mara says I can't talk like that, because there are plenty of really beautiful cats out there. Well. That is her opinion! Wrong of course, but I will teach her yet.
I came to live with Mara last year after I lived in a very busy house. There were two two-leggers, a four-legged horrid creature .... oh, Mara says that was a dog .... two other cats and my little baby. Yes, I had a little baby. Four actually, but three didn't make it. The reason I lived in this very busy house was that I was living in a garage with my babies and somebody thought that wasn't very good. So, we were given a new home. But that was only until Mara came and picked me out of a lot of other cats! Because I was the most beautiful cat there!
I have lived at Mara's now for a year. She is really nice as well. She gives good cuddles and she gives me lots of nice food. I was a bit skinny last year, but now I am much bigger and of course even more beautiful. I especially love the dried fish treats she gives me when I come in the house again. Mmmmiaow.
My name is Oswin which is NOT a boy's name at all! It was the name of the girl on Doctor Who and Mara loves the Doctor! On this blog I am called Miss Oswin though. As a mark of respect for the most beautiful cat in the
world universe! But perhaps it should have been Princess, since my birthday is on April 27th, which also happens to be the birthday of the King of the Netherlands. I turned two this year and got a big bowl of nice things to eat! .... Oh, Mara says that now it's the silly orange teddy's turn! Don't know why, he is stuffed and all!
Yes, it's me again. I know it's not a holiday now, but Mara told me people want to know who I am! Well, that is very simple. My name is Brom (which is the sound bears make in Dutch) and I am a girl. But I would prefer it if you were to refer to me as 'he'. Thank you.
I was given to Mara when Mara was only a toddler. That is about 42 years ago. We have travelled all over: to grandparents and aunts, to friends and strangers. I've been in Yugoslavia and France and Italy and England and Germany and Belgium. But I never really saw much, except the bedroom, although I was allowed to travel on a bus once in Germany.
Now though I am allowed to come on trips which is really great. I get to see so many things and meet so many really lovely people. And most people are really good cuddlers! I love good cuddlers. I don't get to blog once a week like Oswin and I don't mind. Because I get to blog about all the new, strange and wonderful things and people Mara and I see and meet when we're on holiday. Every day! Our next trip will be to Scotland and I am very excited about that. Mara is even going to sew me a kilt so I will fit in! Mara says I have to finish now. But please come back in August! *Cuddle*
