No Planet B

Waiting for spring. And summer. Early morning exercise is good for your heart. Walking in the morning has tremendous cardiovascular benefits, so Mr. Bowie gets the most from his walking routine. But today it seems Mr. Bowie regrets his decision of going outside. Temperatures dropped below zero degrees Celsius and a few cm snowfall is predicted for next Tuesday. This will be our first snow of the winter. Although Mr. Bowie likes playing in the snow, lately he prefers sleeping on the duvet in my bedroom.

Meanwhile, over 12,500 students gathered in Brussels on last Thursday, skipping school again for the second week in a row to march for the climate. “Skipping school? No. We fight for our future,” one sign read, according to The Associated Press. This protest mimics similar climate movements by students in other countries over Europe. One of the most notable young activists is Greta Thunberg, a Swedish 16-year-old who began a strike in front of Swedish parliament last year and has inspired thousands of others to do the same. The students marching for action against climate change will go on until they see real change, according to Anuna De Wever, the 17-year-old instigator of the movement. Respect! The Belgian students are hoping to protest again next week, according to the reports.

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

Just A Quick Note

4 Sec! Looking after number one, Mr. Bowie? It started 3 days ago, the sun will be up for a few seconds longer each day. Why does it make me feel so good?

Happy Holidays, my dear friends and followers!

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


Mr. B’s M.O.

Good night, and good luck. Now winter is just around the corner, I prefer to snuggle under a duvet and hibernate until spring rolls around. But I’m not the only one… Mr. Bowie stayed out of my bedroom in the summer. His modus operandi for catching z’s changed since he noticed there’s a duvet on my bed. A few minutes after I spread the duvet evenly over the bed, Mr. Bowie decided it was time to check it out… Sleep well, my love.

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

Break In

Break in hiking boots. I got myself new hiking boots for my winter walks. Unfortunately, a brand-new pair of hiking boots will be too stiff at first to provide comfort. It looks like Mr. Bowie’s ready to assist me with the break-in process. But probably he’s much more interested in the box.

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

Good Feeling

I had a good feeling about this. Last Friday, Mr. Bowie had his medical check-up concerning his ear infection and high blood pressure. The lab test results, concerning his ear, were very good. We were all very happy! It looks like all the stubborn bacteria of the ear infection are killed and gone, again. I can stop the treatment next Wednesday but we’ll keep our attention on this issue.

However, Mr. Bowie’s blood pressure was still a little bit too high and the doctor performed two blood tests. Mr. Bowie was not amused and displayed aggressive behaviour from hissing and growling to scratching. But hey, he was well within his rights to react this way. A lot of people (and cats) have a needle phobia too… I got the lab results later in the evening and everything was good. Thank goodness! No problems found with his thyroid gland, or a kidney disease. The doctor suggested to use a new complete, hypoallergenic dietary food for adult cats with insufficient kidney function. The product is based on one animal protein source (venison) and one carbohydrate source (rice) and is therefore also suited for adult cats with food hypersensitivity, like Mr. Bowie. It also should help to bring the high blood pressure down.

As always, I want to thank you for all the support and concern. That is very kind of you. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” 

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