Ten On Tuesday. A cat paradise, a mad bunny and a nightmare.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I hope you are enjoying your week! You can link up with Alyssa here

1. I love to watch cooking shows although they mostly cook stuff that I would never ever eat. I wish there would be a vegan cooking show. 

2. I made a vegan Pad Thai on Sunday night and it was delicious. Well, it still is because I cooked way too much. I was too lazy to convert cups into ml/grams etc so I just estimated/ used the whole package of all the ingredients I needed. 

3. I want this too. It is from a German designer, Stefan Hofmann. I am sure the cats would have lots of fun. You can find more amazing pictures here.

4. "Over the weekend, the Dallas Safari Club auctioned off an opportunity to hunt and kill one of the world’s last remaining black rhinos for $350,000. These critically endangered animals are now under additional pressure from trophy hunters. " The world is so sick. This makes me sad and angry. I thought they would stop it. You can still sign a petition to the US Fish and Wildlife Service not to issue the import permit. This could still stop the madness because without permit mo killing -hopefully. You can sign here.

5. My bunny Tiffie is mad at me because I took him to the vet yesterday. He needs to get his teeth cut on a regular basis and I can't even tell you how much he hates it. My vet likes Tiffie a lot. He even cuts his teeth for free. That's why I pay him with candy and chocolate.  

6. I really need to get motivated to exercise some more again. But I am procrastinating by telling myself that I need some new workout gear first. I am horrible.

7. India’s richest man bans sale of meat in his grocery stores. You can read about it here

8. Sometimes you need some inspiration.

9. I need something like this. It would save me so much space and you could hide all the stuff you don't want to see all the time. 

10. I know I said this before but driving in Paris is a nightmare. Never ever again. It still haunts me in my dreams!

Thanks for reading! Have a happy Tuesday!


  1. i love watching cooking shows too, though i don't even cook. haha. and yeah, i NEED that stair storage! what a brill idea!

    1. I guess watching cooking shows is almost as good as cooking! :)

  2. Love this post so much. Every single thing is so inspiring! I love cooking shows, too and a vegan show is a wonderful idea! I wonder why they haven't thought of it yet!?
    Oh my gosh, if I ever happen to have an indoor cat I need Stefan Hofmann to build this in my apartment! :) This is amazing!
    The hunting makes me sick, too :( Thank you so much for sharing the link to the petition! I
    Your vet sounds wonderful and I'm sure Tiffie will forget about it very soon :) How can he be mad at such a wonderful person for too long?? :)
    Oh, more exercising...I guess my foot is a good excuse for now ;)
    Love the story about the man that banned meat from his stores!
    I want those stairs, please :) And I'll keep your advice in mind and won't go to Paris by car.
    Ich drücke Dich gaaaaanz feste liebe Katrin. Ich hoffe, Du hast eine gute Woche!

    1. Glad you like the post, Beate! I really don't know why there isn't a vegan cooking show yet. Well, maybe there is and I don't know about it. At least there are videos on youtube!
      I need that guy to build a cat paradise for me too!
      Thank you so much for signing the petition, Beate!
      Aww, you are so sweet! Thanks for being so wonderful! It really means a lot!
      And yeah, your foot is definitely a good excuse!
      Ich drueck Dich gaaaaanz gaaanz dolle, Liebes! <3

  3. That stair storage is just brilliant.

  4. What the Dallas Safari Club is doing makes me so angry and sad. How can they live with themselves?? I just don't understand it.

    1. I really have no idea, Keith! I am glad you feel the same way about it. These people suck so much!

  5. How funny that you posted the cat furniture--one of my friends literally just told me about that last night!! I wish I had room for something like that in my house. My cats would love it.

    Poor Tiffie. Max gets mad when I groom him. Our animals really put the "pet" in "petulant"!

    And those DSC people ought to be ashamed! They make me sick!

    1. Haha, that is so awesome! :) I would so love to have something like that. I mean, the cats would LOVE that so much!

      Yeah, they really do! :) But we still love them! :)

      They make me sick too. Horrible people!

  6. Making too much Pad Thai is not a thing!!!

    1. I guess you are right about that, Susannah!

  7. Hi Katrin!

    Loved this post. I am proud of Mukesh Ambani now! This is the best decision of his life!!

    Dallas Safari Club must be burned to ashes..how cruel..such things make me sick...:X

    Why have you decided to cut poor bunny's teeth? i feel sad for him :(

    take care!!

    1. Hi Ankita! I am glad you liked the post so much! That guy really made a great decision! More people should do that!
      And yeah, that club makes me so sick. I can't stand people like that.
      Tiffie has problem with his teeth. He needs to get them cut every 8-10 weeks because they grow too long. He has a tooth displacement and when you don't get them cut then they grow too long and he can't eat anymore! I feel sad for him too because he hates going to the vet but it is necessary!
      Have a great week!

  8. I think you should make videos of you cooking your favorite vegan recipes... you never know, foodnetwork might come a calling! :)

    I'm off to sign that petition! xo

    1. Thanks for signing, sweetie!

      Haha, I am not sure if I am the right one to make a cooking video! It's always a bit chaotic! :)

  9. Hope your vet uses a burr to cut the teeth and not the horrible nail clippers!

    1. Yeah, he does. Tiffie still hates it though!
