happy purr-day

  Another year, another birthday. I’m four now. I was so excited this morning that I woke my human parent up at 5.45am, demanding breakfast.

There were, at first glance, no presents to be seen. But when she got home this evening she came bearing gifts-a tin of tuna and salmon luxury cat food and a cat nip mouse that, quite frankly, doesn’t really compare with the live rodent that I dragged in the other day. Still, I suppose it’s the thought that counts.

She also told me that I share my birthday with the Queen of England, so I’ve been celebrating in similar style. Instead of waving regally at passers-by from a balcony, I’ve been watching the neighbours from the window ledge. As soon as one appears that I like, I shoot off to see them. They have cat treats you see, and leather sofas I try to sharpen my claws on. 

I also like to hide in their wardrobes. No-one can see me, but I can see them…



Paris’ pop-up cat cafe

Pet food brand Purina One has opened a pop up cat cafe in Paris.

The cats present in the cafe have come from two partner breeders. The cats (between seven and 10 of them and including siamese, maine coon and sphynx cats) are apparently used to contact with the public and being in cat shows. Each night they will go back to their homes in the close suburbs, because, as we all know, the role of humans on this planet is to keep us kitties safe, happy, and well fed.

Entry to the cafe is free, ditto for the hot drinks and little squares of chocolate, and you can even get a free sample of cat biscuits tailored to your kitty’s needs. Experts are on hand, too, to answer any questions you might have,

There are already two permanent cat cafes in Paris, one of which my human parent visited a while ago. Not sure why she’d want to go to cafes with cats when I’m right here at home, but there you go.

Purina One pop up cat cafe is open from 5-13 june, located at 5, rue de Turbigo – 75001 Paris
