Cloudy – the cartoon

This is a super-happy cartoon about the life of clouds. It’ll perk you right up! 🙂

Playing with Felix when he was just a little kitten

Here’s a video clip of Felix playing with (and scratching) my hand while on my office chair. He was just a little kitten then and he didn’t know how to guard his claws yet. My hands were perennially scratched as he grew up but we adored him just the same.

By the way, if you love my kitty posts, I’ve started a new blog called Medieval Cats, to which you’re invited to subscribe. It’s 100% about cats, featuring our cats alongside other medieval cats (or cats from medieval cities, if you prefer). We currently have four cats: Sasha, Bubu, Tira and Zuzu (three females, one male). They’re all adorable, all photogenic and they love to go on their little adventures.

Why call it Medieval Cats? Because we live in the medieval city of Medias, in Romania. What’s more, we live in a house that’s (on paper) over 200 years old, although parts of it are even older. Let’s just say we “qualify” to use the term. 🙂

Bubu and Tira Playfight

Each day, as we work, one of our cats decides it’s time for a little playfight with one of the others (or with my pants or shoelaces). This video presents Bubu and Tira, our lovely adopted siblings, playfighting. This time Tira initiated the activities — it’s usually Bubu who does it. Tira is the grey kitten and Bubu is the large brown one.

Enjoy, and I hope it relaxes you as much as it relaxes us!

Sasha’s gorgeous, dramatic eyes

Sasha is one of our adopted cats (she’s still a kitten, not yet mature). And she’s got these gorgeous yellow eyes. She’s incredibly expressive, all the time, and unlike our other cats, she loves to look into our eyes, for long periods of time. We adopted her when she was just a tiny bundle of fur (here’s what she looked like back then).

I recorded this video as she rested one day, while Ligia played with another of our cats (I think it was Zuzu). I loved how her eyes dilated and contracted based on what she was thinking as she watched the game. I hope you’ll enjoy it as well! I edited it so it’s dramatic — after all, Sasha is always dramatic. When she’s thirsty, it’s as if there’s been a year-long drought and she’s about to die. When she’s hungry, it’s as if she hasn’t eaten in a week. She loves to play it up. That’s our Sasha.

Zuzu and the Veil of Doom

Our kitten Zuzu loves to explore all sorts of hidden places, many of which have spiders and of course, spiderwebs. We photographed her wearing one of her own fashion creations here, the Veil of Doom.

Why call it the Veil of Doom? She’s a black kitty after all, and we all know from folklore that black cats are a little dark. (She does tend to be a bit gloomy and stubborn and doesn’t usually say much, but she’s very attached to us and she’s incredibly intelligent.)

Cat spaghetti

Our kittens (and I can still call them that, because they’re only about a year old) love to cuddle up together when they sleep. They have their little bed, and that’s where you’ll find them most of the time, sleeping and purring — a big, intertwined mass of furry cuteness. It’s sort of like spaghetti in a bowl. 🙂

Some people have asked me whether they’re related after they saw the video. Bubu and Tira are brother and sister. The others are unrelated. Sasha was adopted in Sibiu, RO. Zuzu was adopted in Bucharest, RO, along with Bubu and Tira, but they’re from different parts of the city. The wonderful thing is they all get along quite well. Sure, they’ll argue a bit from time to time, but overall, they love each others’ company.

My little cat spaghetti is indeed a recipe for relaxation!
