My Favourite Things, Cat a Mania
Poezen in het zonnetje = Pussycats in the sun.
About 30 years ago we started having cats. It began on a sunny Sunday when my husband decided to take the children to the swimmingpool.After a few hours they came back excited! "Mum, look what we've found!"They showed a cardboard box with three very young kittens, about ten days old. Somebody had left them in the verge near the swimmingpool. They were hungry and miaowing all the time. They couldn't drink by themselves. So the vet told us to bottlefeed them every second hour. I carried them around in my apron pocket and had to help them with everything a mothercat usually do. One of them died after a few days. Frigga was a few years old when she was run over by a car and Flucky became 19 years old. They were such lovely animals. After Frigga we had another female cat which was also very sweet. She got one litter of four which was adorable. I miss my cats, but can't have them anymore. I travel too much!
