Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY. This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better. Some of them, you may already know. We hope that you enjoy this series!
Name: Kessy – Though – which real name the cat has is a secret among the cat community.
Age: Nearly 8 (7 years and ten months), yes I am a big girl, no kitten anymore, no matter what my female slave says.
Location: Hannover, Germany
Web/Blog Page: I do not blog, I am a snob, I am a deity, after all, I let blog – my female slave does blog, though. inhannover.wordpress.com
What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? Parents? Oh, you mean my slave? Strange fat human, why does she come over and disturb me in my basket when there are all the other cats she can interact with? Oh, she brings a present, good. Still, not showing too much appreciation, just a majestic nod – or what is the feline equivalent. Good, she leaves again. Then a strange thing happened. The nice lady from the shelter shoved me into a basket (one of those things she took me and all my fellow inmates to the vet with) and brought me to a strange weird place. She let me out of the basket and I fled and jumped at the window, dang it was closed! But there was a second door. I sped past that fat human again and searched shelter under what I call now the big cat bed. There was a white and black tom, but he seemed ok-ish. He did not growl and not hiss. He just blinked. Cool guy. I settled there. I heard the slave say something to the not so nice any more lady from the shelter – and then they fell silent. We four waited with baited breath – but nothing happened. The humans let me be, The lady from the shelter even forgot me when she went home. Later that day I heard the wood about my head creak and the tom went out and joined the fat slave on the bed. I jumped out and went into the third room of the apartment, where I found a Kessy sized cave, in which I curled up. All my friends were missing. Later at night I ventured back, the tom lay at the feet of the fat human. He was really friendly. The human spoke to me – so I fled again. That was my first day at the new home. And several days more.
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? When I hid from the human slave under the cover of the sofa and she brought me presents and laid them in front of the opening and then left me to it. Then I knew I had found my very own slave. She even played with me and gave me treats despite not being allowed to caress me at first.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? When I brought out a hairball on the freshly done covers on the big cat bed. I have done that several times, and the slave has the impertinence to try to shove me on the ground to vomit there. But most times she is too late.
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? There is only one slave at my home and she is firmly wrapped around my paw. Unless she decides to take me to the vet. She should know better by now. I have left some very stinky reminders for her that I do not like being put into that box and being brought there. Last time they even stole my teeth! My pride and joy! But apart from this strange affinity to the vet she is a good slave and gives me treats galore and plays with me. She even feeds me grass stems now that I find it difficult to plug them myself (your own fault woman). Ok, my teeth hurt that much that I refused to eat, so maybe she did have a point.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? That I am tiny at heart. I am only tiny compared to human bodies. I am a tiger – or a lioness …Or maybe it is my fur colour (color in your part of the world) – it appears to be rather black-ish – but I am mainly red-brownish – which the sun reveals.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PERCY PIG!
Do you know who Percy Pig is? He turns 21 today – yay!
Percy Pig is a brand of pig shaped gummy raspberry, strawberry, cherry and grape flavored candies licensed in Germany from Marks & Spencer.
Mommy has Percy Pig on her Facebook page and they posted this morning about Percy’s birthday. Isn’t that so exciting? A pig shaped candy? Who would have ever thought that? I think it’s fantastic! A candy that looks like well ME! 🙂
Have you ever seen these in the store? Mom helped me and went on line to find a picture of the candies.
This was taken off of Wikipedia.
Now, do you recognize them? I wonder if mommy can get some here in the United States? I bet they would be wonderful!

Mom told me about this show that she used to watch growing up as a child. It was called Romper Room. Do you remember it? She said that it was a series that ran from 1953 until 1994. Of course, snort – mom came in there sometimes in the late 1970’s.
She told me she used to watch it ALL of the time. We even found an old back issue of one of them and she showed it to me. Even dad said he watched it growing up. Of course, it was right up there with shows like Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers.
There were lots of things that mom and dad both said they learned. One thing was when they served milk and cookies to the children. You remember the little prayer given before eating, “God is great, God is good. Let us thank him for our food. Amen.” I think I’ve even heard daddy still mutter that before dinner sometimes – snort.
And do you remember the bumblebees, Mr. Do-Bee and Mr. Don’t-Bee? Do-Bee good little children and Don’t Be Mean. Those were so hilarious when we watched the show the other day – LOL
The ending was my favorite – the magic mirror. “Romper, bomper, stomper boo. Tell me, tell me, tell me, do. Magic Mirror, tell me today, have all my friends had fun at play?” The teacher would then name off names, “I see Jimmy and Lucy and Tiffany and Judy…” I *so* hoped she would say Bacon in the episode we watched, but she didn’t. Mom said she never said her name either. Pooey.
So, I kind of wanted to do a throw back to the old Romper Room Magic Mirror. I wanted to look in my Magic Mirror and ‘see‘ all of the people that have seen my blog.
I see Hungary, I see Italy, I see Bosnia and Herzegovina. I see Greece, I see Lebanon, I see Australia and I see Oman (I had to look that one up on the map!).
I see Saudi Arabia, I see Denmark, I see Maylaysia and I see United Republic of Tanzania. I see Estonia, I see Kenya, I see Vietnam and I see Pakistan.
I see Israel, I see the United States, I see the Netherlands and I see the United Kingdom. I see Canada, I see South Africa, I see Mexico and I see Germany.
I see Singapore, I see Spain, I see Georgia (not to be confused to the Georgia where I live in the United States 🙂 and I see the Phillippines. I see Brazil, I see India, I see Portugal and I see Indonesia.
I see Switzerland, I see Poland, I see Russian Federation and I see Ireland. I see Serbia, I see New Zealand, I see Malta and I see France.
I see Thailand, I see Taiwan, I see Guatemala and I see Sweden. I see Republic of Korea, I see Norway, I see Hong Kong and I see Austria.
I see Columbia and I see Aruba. I see Peru and I see Ukraine.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again REALLY SOON my friends. Hogs and Kisses – Bacon
