Trip in Switzerland : the Maison Cailler

This post is also available in : French German Italian

It’s been very hot in the last few weeks, and we’ve been content with quiet activities, such as synchronized bathing, for example.

Pixie tried to find some coolness in the vegetable garden, but it was finally inside that it was the freshest.

Our humans have combined the useful with the pleasant : they have gone to fetch some coolness at the Maison Cailler, the chocolate factory located in Broc, in Gruyère, in the canton of Fribourg. Claire and Momo discovered the fascinating history of chocolate and observed with interest the whole process of its manufacture from A to Z. Not only was it fresh in the factory, but they could also taste different chocolates more delicious than each other !

And you, where have you found a little coolness these days ?

    Such sweet photos of Pixie and Zorro … but oh dear, wish we had not seen the chocolates … now we must search the cupboards for a sweet-treat, surely not to be as good as those!

    Your garden is looking nice even though it is hot. We are in the middle of a record-setting heat wave and we water every day to try to keep everything alive. Mmmmm, chocolate factory. My Mom would love to go on that tour.

    My auntie would be so envious, ’cause she totally loves chocolate!

    I think you should introduce synchronized pussycat bathing as an Olympic sport!

    Ooh, I bet you can find some nice cool shady spots under the leaves of those garden plants and roll around in the dirt to keep away any fleas, too. Purr purr purr.

    What great synchronized bathers you are! And a trip to a chocolate factory would be fun for sure. Did youy feel the drips of drool we left?? MOL!

    Our den is air-conditioned, so we don’t suffer too much, though the peeps have to go outside to do chores and then they do get all sweaty and hot…ugh.
