Cats on Tuesday July 10-07

July is Vacation time in Norway. Even for cats. Well, Rosa and Felicia have enjoyed their vacation since end of April. But, last Friday I picked up Solvi and cat cousin Stompa. They will stay in the Summerhouse for a periode of time.

Stompa is, like his mother, scared of driving. Before 100 meters of driving his was wet.

Some sounds now and then. Miewet, he said. And Miewno in curves.

We drove for about 45 minutes and stopped at a pharmacy. Stompa stayed calme. Some medicin for me? Or Pampers? Medicine would be OK. But Pampers? Nieoway.

From the pharmacy to the summerhouse, it’s only a couple of minutes drive. Up the steep hill. Many people do not dare to drive up or down this tiny, steep road. After the heavy rain we have had here for the past weeks – well – it is not a very comfortable “road”. Like a cattlewalk - LOL. Stompa did not like it at all. We could smell that. One minute from the destination – and – what a smell. Poor Stompa – going to meet his cousins like that!

We stopped down on the road, brought his cage outside and opened it. Stompa ran into the nature. And hide for a while in the bushes.
Then he went up to the platform – Miew – here I am. Clean as only a cat can be. He got food – then said miew to his cousins and started inspecting the terrain – as all cats always do. The last days, Stompa, Rosa and Felicia have been mostly outside. They know dinner time and breakfast time. In between their meals are mice and birds. And they stay upon the roofs, under the houses when raining. Sometimes they jump in during the Nights.

Wednesday morning we will pick up Diane in downtown Oslo and head for Mariestad.
Once again a meeting with RennyBA. So stay tuned.
Only 3 photos to day - due to extremely slow uploading ( more than 2 hrs).

AW! Poor Stompa! To be in a car must be torture for a cat. Mine only go in when they go to the vet so they start yeowling right away!
But it's a nice life for cats at the summer house! All those mice! Mine have caught a lot just in our back yard along the river. It's been stiflingly hot for the last 5 days but they still stay out. Not me! I hang out in my husband's air-con office!

Stompa really suffered through the transport ! but now I am sure he enjoys his holidays with you. The weather is just awful here too ! It rains and rains since beginning of June I have no feet anymore I have flippers and my legs are green ! What a summer ! Blogger lately was more than snail slow for uploading pictures. It took me also at least half an hour per picture !

Happy holiday for Stompa and the others at summer home! Everyone finds his happiness living in the nature and capturing all the energies we need all over the year!
Come to see the cats I photographed in a place I'm sure you know it!

Poor Stompa! It doesn't sound like a fun trip.

Your summerhouse looks lovely. You are all very brave cats for venturing outside like that! I hope you enjoy your time at the summerhouse. :)

Poor Stompa...he didn't like the care and then the added mortification of losing control.

However, I'm sure he is much happier now that he is at the summerhouse.

Poor Stompa! Sounds like a lovely trip at the end of a hard ride, though.

Poor Stomps....It is always amazing to me how some animsls hate the car....! Maybe they think that they are going to the Vet, and that in itself is scary to them...! Now, they can all run free and enjoy each others company!
A very very pretty kitty!

I love to read your posts about your summers in Norway. It is so beautiful and a place I always wanted to visit. Norwegian cats must be pretty hardy!
