Today is a day of remembrance. Exactly a year ago Amerrykoons SimplyRed passed away. We only had him for a very short time due to his sickness but he nevertheless left a everlasting impression. We will never forget him.
In February 2011 when we were in Berlin we went to a little gallery to see if we could get something special. They were selling glass objects and we saw a little glass flask. We Unfortunatelydid not buy it then because we wanted to look to other things to. In October we were also in Berlin and went to the gallery again and now we decided to buy the little flask. As it was still there it had to be destiny.
As you might have guessed. The content of this flask is Amerrykoons SimplyRed
Today we do not have a specific subject for our blog. There are a number of things we want to mention anyway.
We start of with the good news. As already mentioned we got the last room in the show hotel in Rangsdorf and are going with two cats. Baba and Red Ice have the honor to enter. So one poly and one non-poly.
There is a bit of not so good news to. The lady we saw some time ago and were considering as an addition to our cattery is not coming to live with us. There were some very good reasons for that, but we will not put them publicly on the internet.
Furthermore, we already mentioned that Charlotte is not pregnant. That did not stop her from adopting some “kittens”. She has now two kittens. One is our Kitty and the other one is Kaneeltje.As you can see on the picture she is very dedicated.
Charlotte and kittens
The last subject is our Savanna. She is still running around, despite of her condition. And she also is a bit spoiled ;-). She lookes really good though, even with her lazy relaxed ears ;-).
As our ladies are not pregnant we decided to enter for the TICA show in Rangsdorf 9, 10 and 11 December. We called the hotel which proved to be a lucky thing as they apparently forgot to enter our reservation in the system last year. We are getting the last room they have. We always have a view at the lake and that is really nice in the hotel 😉
We did not buy the philippe Starck chair because it did not look as new as we hoped for. The chair had been standing in the shop for some time and git to scratched. So for that one we have ti continue looking. We bought something different though. We can place this one on the table and the cats can have a nap in there.
We found some catrelated items in Berlin. Today we decided to go KaDeWe and after some browsing we found some arty stuff. We already new this artist for his “over the top” art. Also we already have some stuff from him. Nevertheless (or therefore) we decided to buy two small items amongst which the one on the picture below. You can find his stuff on his website, just in case you might be interested 😉
No cat story today ;-). I know thats a bit of a dissappointment :-).
The excuse is that we are in Berlin and can not find any cat related stuff.
And we tried very hard today because we went for a walk in Prenzlauerberg ( a Berlin district). We went with public transport and that confirmed that we are not made for that. Although the trainstation is close to the hotel it stopped at a place where we did not need to go. We then had to walk for 30 minutes to get to the start of the walk. Lockily we could get a nice breakfast there. The walk in itself was nice, but the best part was the lunch. There was a place called “Sowohlalsauch” at the Kollwitzstrasse. This little place was really stuffed with people and you can get the nicest lunches. They also serve great cakes and very good coffee and huge cups of chocolatemilk. And it is not even expensive. So if you ever are in Berlin this really is a must see. After that we finished the walk and returned to the hotel with very tired feet.
