Little Lionheart

Just a few pictures of my little Hannibal, who has been diagnosed chronic renal insufficiency (yeah I know after losing Mimmi this March)…he has become so thin, but this guy has been fighting his whole life after his accident, he won’t give up…I hope he still has some power left…

The curious incident of the bunny in the Easter-time

I know I’m not really blogging a lot the last weeks…maybe I get more time and a clearer head in the future…. But here’s a short review on our Easter weekend, starting with Good Friday and our Meatless dinner: I made a Pasta with mussels and squid 1 glass fish stock 200 ml white wine…

The tragic fate of Humpty Dumpty and the Fish-Footman

It’s Friday again 🙂 and a really warm and sunny one here in Germany, much too warm for this part of the year, more May or June than March…but it was a great day for cleaning our balcony. Our tomatoes last year had been a disaster, so we decided to plant only bell peppers and…

The cat formerly known as Paula Pummel

I’ve already told you about my Mum’s new cat Paula Pummel, but I have to rectify some facts: there is no Paula Pummel anymore, because now welcome Molly Moppel!! Mum decided to rename the sad and anxious cat, so she could leave her past behind and I think she starts enjoying her new life. First…

New Season: bring out the bunny!

After St. Patrick’s Day we decided that it’s time to search for our Easter decoration: Look at these two guys! Aren’t they just great..  

We need to talk about Lennard

Before we have to discuss serious events concerning our cat Lennard, I want to start with pictures of our ‘One day ahead-St. Patrick’s Day Dinner’ We started to day with delicious Oatmeal Bread (made by me) – yes, no Soda Bread, I never managed to make a proper one so I gave it up. The…

Paula Pummel, a ray of light in a dark hour

Hi everybody! I’ve got very sad news, Mimi  – my mother’s cat I – is dead, acute kidney injury. She really wanted to live up till her 18th birthday on March 11th, Saturday evening she started getting weaker and weaker. On Monday she passed away. I still haven’t realized that she’s gone – losing someone…

Ithaca – or planning the week and enjoying the sun

Last Friday Hannibal got his Globules! It took them quite a long time cuz the shop sent them on a odyssey back to our old address 😦 But at last they reached the shores of Ithaca . We started Hannibal’s cure with 5 pulsatilla a day for his cold and hopefully he will get better soon….

Color fasting for Salvation

The period of fasting before Eastern has started and they tell you everywhere on the radio or TV that you should use this time to stop e.g.drinking alcohol, using your cellphone, smoking……….and so on, at least for a while. And now this is my personal lent: I stopped using color in my pictures….I’m not sure…

Cats of constant sorrow come in and take a seat

Lenny now got some medicine and Globules for his bad neck and he’s really getting better. But still his kidney doesn’t work as well as it should and Hannibal caught himself a sniff which seemed chronically V_v My sista seemed positively surprised by the Globules and so she searched for other Globules on the internet…

Et in Arcadia ego, your sincerely Acedia

I’m really shocked! Everything in our home seemed so perfect and beautiful and everybody was happy and then you get the news that your cat slowly transforms into a stone or something immobile because he is too lazy to move at all! Now we have one hyperactive Hannibal always running around and making you stumble…

The British Patient-Books-and Heasty-Non-Super Cooking

Now we have another ill cat in the family..no that’s not the right word because Lenny has heart problems for quite a long time, but now he also got serious neck pains because (now listen on!!) he just sits around and doesn’t do anything else but sleeping and eating…so he gets laser acupuncture and massages……..
