Meet The Felines.

Hallo meine Lieben,

the lovely Erin from TexErin-in-Sydneyland is hosting a fantastic link-up and this week you can Meet the Felines. So hop over, say hi and see lots of cute kitty cats. Last week I introduced my bunnies Findus and Tiffie, you can find the post here



Here we go:





Meet Lumpi & Tiger, the two cats who make my life a lot happier. They are brothers and I adopted them when they were babies and my former landlord's brother wanted to "get rid of them". Whatever that means. I don't think I want to know. We will celebrate their 8th birthday this July. Every kitty birthday is a big event and we celebrate with presents and extra treats. But I guess I am not the only one who celebrates the birthdays of their furry family members, right?





Lumpi is the black guy and Tiger the tabby cat. Their favorites pastimes include sleeping on my bed, snoring, playing with their favorite mouse toy or with random accessories  like paper balls, pens and other things that are not made for cats, eating, sleeping on my lap, entertaining the bunnies, watching the birds, sleeping on my clothes, especially when they are in the laundry basket (clean of course), sitting in the tub and drinking water out of the faucet, trying to disturb me when I read and cuddling with each other. As you can see below. 



They get along perfectly fine with their bunny brothers. As long as Tiger does not try to sleep on Tiffie's favorite chair. Then Tiffie jumps on him and scares him away. The bunnies are definitely in charge, there is no doubt. 



They are such cuddly and loving cats. When you sit down on the couch, Tiger will immediately jump on your lap and Lumpi will curl up next to you - and then you are not allowed to leave anymore. 
Tiger usually wakes me up every morning exactly ten minutes before my alarm goes off. He's the best alarm clock you can imagine, that is for sure. 
These guys bring a smile on my face every day. And I am so thankful that they are a part of my family.

And of course, here's the queen: my dad's cat Jerry who is basically my sister. She is 11,5 years old and a bit of a diva. Which means she always gets what she wants. But who can resist that pretty face?




She loves eating, sleeping, meowing and cardboard boxes. Especially cardboard boxes. Lots of cardboard boxes. Big and small. No cat beds. Just cardboard boxes. One time I got her a new cat bed as a present but she only cared for the cardboard box it got delivered in. I think she has at least 6 or 7 to choose from at any time.


So now I am curious about your feline companions. Please tell me something about them!
Have a great rest of the week! And link up with Erin, of course!

  3. This post made me smile :) What a gorgeous pair Lumpi and Tiger are. They sound like a lot of their favorite activities are in common with my guys. And, what is it about bags and boxes?! Kitties just love bags and boxes! Thanks for linking-up!

    1. I am so glad the post made you smile. They really are the perfect pair, I love seeing them together. And yes, seems like they really have a lot in common with your kitties. When Tiger was a baby he always slept in my purse, it was so adorable! Now he prefers boxes though. :) The link-up is so much fun, thank you for hosting!

  5. You are not the only one that celebrates animal birthdays! I've never understood why cats like cardboard boxes so much?

    1. I really have no idea, I have bought so many cat beds etc but they usually ignore that stuff and go back into their boxes! And glad I am not the only one who celebrates animal birthdays. :)

  6. Aww what cuties! Jolie also loves cardboard boxes. I think all cats do. I once saw a video of lions and tigers curling up in refrigerator boxes, it was so cute!

  7. I think it's hilarious that the bunnies are the ones in control! I would have figured it to go the other way since the cats are bigger, right? I've never had a cat as a pet because I'm VERY allergic to them. Even shots and medications didn't prevent me from having an allergy attack anytime I went to someone's house with cats. :( I still think they're adorable even if I can't be around them!

    1. Yeah, I absolutely expected that the arrival of the bunnies could cause some problems because the cats were there first and they are so much bigger and have claws. But that wasn't the case at all. It is so much fun to see them together. I am really sorry about your allergy! That must me so horrible. :(

  13. I like their names. I had thought Tiger is the black one, guess that means I'm not good with pet names. I really like how you list them likes, like some sort of personal ads - kind of fun.

    hope you have a lovely day.

    1. Thank you, Lissa! I am glad you like the names! Lumpi is named after a character of my favorite childhood show called "Der kleine Vampir" (The Little Vampire). Thanks again, I am so glad you enjoyed the post!
      Have a lovely day!
