2020 will be a good year thanks to you

Our year 2020 should be excellent thanks to all the wishes we received : postcards, e-cards, emails, comments, messages, they made us very happy.

Like every year, we made a garland with your postcards ; it has decorated our house so far.

Can you find your card ?

And here is an overview of the e-cards we received :

Your friendship is very important to us, and will accompany us throughout the year. Thank you once again for your good wishes !

More gifts

On January 6, it’s Epiphany : in some traditions, you eat the Twelfth-Night pancake, in others, gifts are offered that day rather than at Christmas.

Our Secret Santa spoiled us at Christmas, but he was not the only one : our friends from the Poupounette Gang also sent us a package full of gifts !

The gifts were carefully wrapped, and accompanied by a nice card.

This is what the package contained for Claire :

And this is what ours contained :

Zorro was super excited about the gift unpacking 😉

So I supervised everything from A to Z : unpacking, inspection, testing…

What ?!?

Do you think I should have awakened Zorro and shared these treats, toys and this moment of joy with him ?

Are you kidding me ?

It’s mine, all mine for a while, yipeee !

Many thanks to you, the Poupounette Gang, many thanks to you, #1, we ‘ve been very touched by your attention !

Retrospective 2019

On this New Year’s Eve Day, it’s the last moment to look back and review the past year.

In January, we took part in the Pet Blogger Challenge to help our new readers get to know us better.

The month of February was exceptionally hot, one would have thought it was already spring.

Claire was very eager to see the month of March arrive : in fact, #1 of the Poupounette Gang was coming to Switzerland, and they managed to find time to meet !

We welcomed Mimosa in mid-April ; its arrival was particularly appreciated by Momo.

Our friend Bibi got his wings in May ; we lost several friends during the year, and we keep them in our hearts, but Bibi was special to us because Claire had personally hugged him during her visit to the Poupounette Gang in 2018.

End of school year of madness as usual, and first episode of heat wave : June was hot, very hot.

On the heat side, the month of July was no exception : after a pleasant start, a second heat wave struck us shortly after Claire started her vacation.

Claire and Momo took advantage of their holidays in August to play tourists and visit Lucerne, and to catify the house a bit.

In September, we received a surprise package from Basil & the B-Team. It was totally unexpected, and we enjoyed it a lot !

We had a beautiful fall in October.

The month of November was studious : Claire took a course on cat intelligence, and one on developing balanced household rations to feed us (we’ll talk about it next year).

What happiness in December ! We were pleased to introduce you to the book Pet Blogging for Love and Money, a book that any blogger should own. We received two beautiful packages, one from our Secret Paws and the other from our friends at Poupounette Gang (we will also talk about this next year).

Dear readers, dear blogging friends, thank you all for your love, support, and continued friendship this past year. This community of pet bloggers is wonderful, and we are fortunate and proud to be a part of it. We wish you a very happy 2020 !
