Moonlight Robbery

Fellow Felines! The most terrible thing has happened! Someone has stolen the moon!
We were sitting there on the balcony, staring at it, when a dark shadow started nibbling away at it, for all the world like a mouse nibbling at a Gouda cheese! And slowly but surely, the moon began to disappear! Now it's all gone! The sky is completely dark! We are so frightened - if someone can steal the moon, nothing is safe!

We weren't really frightened... No, indeed. We were just pretending. We are Fearless Felines. Our Human says the moon will come back soon, this is just something called an e-c-l-i-p-s-e. That's a new, scientific word We have learned. We are very erudite kitties. (That's another long word We have learned.)

Our Human has been taking pictures of the cheese (sorry, moon) being eaten and she will post them in her own blog in a day or two. Meanwhile, Fellow Felines, enjoy this rare and beautiful spectacle of Nature.

PS. She was right! It's slowly coming back - like our distant cousin, the Cheshire Cat, reappearing a bit at a time.

Shavuot - Feast of Treats

Our Human has been celebrating the Shavuot festival today - the Jewish Feast of Weeks. But for Us, it has been a Feast of Treats. On this festival, it is traditional to eat dairy foods, and at any rate, not meat. She had her sisters round, with their mates and kittens, for a Buffet Lunch and made lots and lots of delicious goodies and her sisters also contributed tasty treats. It was very noisy and the little ones ran about all over the place, which always scares Us, so We hide under the bed. But She knows this, so when there is going to be Company, She shuts the bedroom door so they won't come in and disturb Us.
Anyway, after everyone had gone and We had the house to Ourselves again, She shared some of the Festival Food with Us. Since there's such a lot left over, perhaps some of you would care to join Us. What would you say to some fresh salmon, baked in a delicate sour cream and dill sauce? Or maybe a dollop or two of tuna salad? Cheese and mushroom quiche, anyone? And for those of you with a sweet tooth, the pi├Ęce de resistance  (and our human's showpiece) - cheese-cake (with cherries)...
But you'd better hurry - it won't be there for long ;-)

PS. If any of you know of a homeless kitty, in need of a square meal, you could bring them along too. We have so much, we would like to share some with pussycats less fortunate than ourselves...
