Eight

Mr. Bowie turns eight today. I don’t remember much about my eighth birthday or any of my birthdays of the past, really. But hey, it’s not about me, it’s about our little big hero, Mr. Bowie.

My Dad took his bike, went for a ride and surprised us with a visit. We had espressos and chocolate. Happy Birthday Mr. Bowie! Catnip and treats for the furry ones.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Newsflash #14

Back in business. It was great getting all your get-well messages. Thank you so much! I’m grateful for the concern you have shown. After a 12-hour fasting period and a sufficient total sleep over a 24-hour period, Mr. Bowie’s doing fine now. At this moment, he’s enjoying the rays of the early morning sun.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Newsflash #13

Little sick boy. This evening, I rushed to Venhei, a Veterinary Hospital. An occasional episode of vomiting is normal in most cats, but Mr. Bowie kept vomiting for several hours. Mr. Bowie got a medical check-up by Sarah, another experienced and brilliant vet working at Venhei. Our little sick boy needed medicines to fight the nausea and his fever. The problem was probably caused by eating something strange in the garden, a bug or another insect. I got to keep an eye on the patient for the next 24 hours. Get well soon, Mr. Bowie!

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Flashback #16

The guardian angel. A few months ago, I heard a hard bang against the window and I found a stunned bird outside. Apparently, a sparrow flew straight into the window of my house. Mr. Bowie, a natural born ornithologist, was outside and checked if the little one was okay. It reminded me of a similar story years ago. I placed the bird in a box so he could reboot in peace and quiet. I kept a watchful eye to make sure no potential predator (the neighbour’s cat) swoop in for a quick lunch. After 5 minutes the sparrow was recovered and flew away safely.

No animals (sparrows or cats) were harmed, killed or eaten during the shooting of these photographs.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

The Hardest Part

Sometimes waiting is the hardest part. But remember, Mr. Bowie, the catnip that grows slower bear the greatest fruit! Just relax and enjoy the sun. The future’s so bright, you probably gotta wear shades.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

He’s Back!

Finally! Mr. Bowie’s back… but actually, he was never gone. Guess he was only trying to keep a low profile. Right now Mr. Bowie’s looking forward to spring and summer, just like the rest of us in this part of the world. He’s right on top of the really important issue: getting the garden ready for new catnip plants! He has become a real expert on harvesting, storing and drying catnip. I wonder if I should give up my career as a musician and get started into the catnip business…

In the next post, we’ll talk about “eastern European gangs of thieves” and how Mr. Bowie deals with it.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Rain Rain Rain

Rain smashing hard against the window. Mr. Bowie cancelled his field trip in the garden due to heavy rain. By way of precaution, he crawled for shelter under the table.

I enjoy the sound of rain on the windows and the roof. I have become a very light sleeper, completely off sleep medication for about a month and the sound of rain helps me fall asleep at night.
