Last weekend we enjoyed gorgeous weather, so I took Izaak and Lorelai out for some “being offleash” practice. The main reason was, I wanted to check what that flash of red I could see out… More
Kalle captured these photos a few days ago.
Kalle has a lovechair/small sofa in his room, and the other day three cats decided it was the pefect napping spot.
Nothing to see here…just Alfred, Lorelai, Izaak…and Izaak’s mousie.
(As it turns out, Zak’s mousie is, in fact, an important member of this group.)
Have you ever seen anything as adorable as these three?
I mean, really…
…The fact that Freddy is zonked out whilst the other two are alert and watching the camera speaks volumes.
Of course, Freddy is so laid back, even that doesn’t faze him.
It’s almost as if Zak was a blanket for Freddy.
“He’s not heavy, he’s my brother.”
On Friday, Linus finished my tattoo honouring Gun-Hee and Logan
This is just after the shading on Logan was finished. Linus worked hard to find just the exact right shades of brown.
He really captured Logan’s expression and cute slight underbite.
Here we are checking it out in the mirror.
The green in Logan’s eyes should deepen as the tattoo heals.
Because it’s hard to get the whole tattoo in one photo, Linus made a short video as well. I asked him to take one with my phone, so you can see it “live” by clicking on the image above.
Today is just a normal Monday Chez Hellqvist…Angel sleeping in her favourite brown bed…
Unlike Logan, Izaak doesn’t share this bed with her. Oh, he tries to get in there with her…but where Logan ignored her when she hissed at him and got in anyway, Zak walks away and naps elsewhere.
Next we have Jacoby in the manly pink kitty bed. Which looks even more pink in this shot.
This film and lens tones the pink down quite a bit…but doesn’t really help.
Next shot is just plain black and white..and, nope. Doesn’t look any more manly without the pink. Must be the fluffy, not the colour.
Next we have Alfred.
I made Golonka (Polish beer-braised pork hocks) tonight, and Freddy always loves to chew on the bones.
He’s growling at Lorelai in this photo. He doesn’t like to share…
…no matter how big the bone is!
“Okay, Rory…NOW you can have it. I’m finished with it.”
Rory, meanwhile, has moved on and is playing in our bedroom.
Never fear! Zak the SuperSinga is here!
Never mind that that bone is bigger than his head!
Unlike Abyssinians, Singapuras are lap cats.
Sit down, make a lap…get a Singa in it. Especially if you have on a dress or skirt; they seem to really like the hammock effect.
But this story actually starts on Björn’s lap.
Both Izaak and Lorelai wanted to be on Björn’s lap.
Although it wasn’t particularly a comfortable sharing.
My lap was busy working on this blog at the time, so Zak went over to Björn’s lap. But Rory thought that Daddy’s lap belonged to her.
She tried some pretty passive-aggressive tricks to shift him, to no avail.
…She got the idea to attack his tail. Move the tail, move the cat, is Rory’s motto.
You can see how that went for her here (click the image to watch the video; sound is advised).
These photos are from May, when we first got Lorelai.
She was pretty adorable riding in Jacoby’s big yellow stroller.
First we have her ridesharing with Alfred.
He was so much bigger than she was, back then.
She was really adorable in the stroller with Freddy.
But a couple of weeks later, Rory was in the stroller with Angel.
That time, she was really working the cute. Look at her chill!
Five years ago this month, the Boston Red Sox won their third World Series in 10 years, and of course our Jacoby wore his jersey to cheer the team on.
Well, this year the Red Sox have had an amazing season and just beat the Yankees in the first playoff round and face the Houston Astros at Fenway on Saturday night. I’m lucky in that just this year they actually started broadcasting MLB games on Swedish television! They’re shown live, which is…challenging, given that they start at 1 or 2 in the morning, but I usually DVR them and watch them the next day.
Of course, it being October and the Sox being in the ALCS reminded me of the last Boston World Series game we watched.
I found a bunch of photos of Jake watching that game that, apparently, I never posted here. Of course, Jake was excited to watch the game.
Nothing like Boston during a playoff game – especially one at Fenway!
The Dropkick Murphys sang the National Anthem. That was awesome.
This was Game 6, and Boston was leading St. Louis 3-2.
Checking out the Cardinals’ line-up.
Make sure you have your bat, Jake!
Let’s just hope that the Red Sox can get past the Astros. GO RED SOX!
