Heavy work

In October 2021, we told you about a mysterious tunnel that had appeared in the extension of our cat flap in preparation for the renovation of our house.

This winter, Claire and Momo added the second module to get us used to using it without fear to go out to the garden, and this spring, they installed the third and last module.

In July, part of our fence was moved to allow free access to all outside of the house for work.

In August, the apocalypse began…

A summer from hell for my 10th birthday

Since June, we’ve been experiencing hot temperatures and a terrible drought, as has the rest of Europe.

The grass is completely dry, some trees have lost their leaves, the fire risk is at its highest level in weeks, and there are water restrictions everywhere.

It’s in these extreme conditions that I’m going to celebrate my 10th birthday.

You’re all invited ! For the reasons I just mentioned, there will be no barbecue ; the party will start inside, in the cool. Several tiled spaces equipped for a nap will be available.

We will then go out at nightfall, when the temperatures are more bearable, to continue the festivities in the garden. Come join us !

Trip in Switzerland : the kingdom of cats

Claire had great time visiting this exhibition which takes place for the seventh time open air and in the barns of Rossinière, a charming Waldesian village nestled at 920 m (3018 ft) altitude in the Pays d’Enhaut.

This contest was created in memory of the famous painter Balthus who lived in Rossinière from 1977 to 2001 (date of death) and who loved cats.

Strolling through the alleys, you can admire nearly 70 cats created by professionals, families, or students. Here are a few :

Oh ! Qu’il est mi(g)non – Marc Cherix
?
Firmin, Athéna, Polux et Eugénie – Festival au Pays des Enfants
La nuit, tous les chats ne sont pas gris – Bulle d’Air
Chat -brûle – Jean-Daniel Martin
Chatourne en rond – Ueli Tschabold
Le Chafé – Lucien Racine

The exhibition takes place this year from June 11th to September 10th, 2022.
