Happy Birthday, Switzerland !

A quick sign of life from my side, folks!

My mum and dad are occupying the computer so much with their Sardinia stories, I hardly catch sight of it. But now dad is away, working on a big Swedish ferry. My mum is busy with vacuuming the house, to my great annoyance!

Well, my dad’s parents are coming from Sweden on Thursday and mum feels like the whole house needs to be bloody renovated…

Anyway, what I wanted to tell you is, that today, 1st of August, Switzerland celebrates its birthday! So my best wishes and a Happy Swiss National Day – you still look great with your 726 years!

Well….one cat’s joy is another cat’s sorrow….MINE for example!

Celebrating this day means, people are igniting fires everywhere (in the evenings) and start fireworks and crackers (typically also in the evening, but it had already started a couple of days ago).

Now, my mum is very worried about me because of all the noise and rockets. She even turned down invitations from friends and family, in order to stay at home with me! The thing is, do I want to stay at home and locked-up inside? I found it very interesting the last few days, hunting in the fields beside us – there are loads of mice, waiting for me to play with….

A while ago – it’s lunch time now – I was outside and checked the surroundings. Still pretty quiet, so far! A bit further up from my house, people from the village’s shooting club are still working and preparing everything for a huge party tonight: A big pile of wood, massive fireworks and bars. All that means, many people will be driving here and visit the event!

And that’s the reason why my mum is so afraid ….the same could happen to me, as to my beloved brother Thor, who died two years ago….*sniff*

All righty then! I’ll do her the favour, and be home in a reasonable time. Spending the evening with her on the sofa, watching tv, and play the cuddly sweet kitty! *purrrr* 

Wish you all – who can – a great night, out in the wild    =^.^=

PS: Photo’s will follow – my mum doesn’t know how to put them in a post…..erm….neither do I……
