A Surprise Guest

July 29, 2014

A rainy day from Germany. We are staying in a sweet little suburban area outside of Heidelberg that I swear looks right out of a Hansel and Gretel children’s book. Germany is absolutely beautiful, and feels completely unique from all of the other countries we have visited.



Dennis and I spent the morning working on some spreadsheets and things for an upcoming work project.

We sipped our coffee as we worked at the dining room table when all of the sudden Dennis loudly said, “WOAH.”

“What?! What?!” I responded in somewhat of a panic.

He leaned back in his folding chair and peered into the bedroom.

“There’s a CAT in our room.” he said in a matter of fact tone.

I stood up and and sure enough, a black and white cat moseyed on out of our room like it was no big deal.

I’m not a cat person, I’m a bit allergic, so I have never spent much time as a cat cuddler.

We weren’t quite sure what to do, as we are in a completely unfamiliar place and had no idea who the cat belonged to.

We figured, well, someone will find him in the hallway and figure out where he’s supposed to go, so we ushered our special guest right into the hallway, where he proceeded to sprawl on the steps right outside our door…ALL DAY.


Seriously though, how did he get there? We are on the second floor… The window was open, but we may have a Spider Cat on our hands.

As much as I am not pleased with having an unknown feline in my bedroom, we did have a good laugh at the pure ridiculousness of it.

So, Mr. German Kitty, you made my Joy List, even though you are also on my Naughty List…and I’m definitely shutting the window tonight before bed.

P.S. Speaking of cats…[This little bundle of cuteness was on a T-shirt in the Italian leather market in Florence…I truly was tempted to get the tee, but settled for this lovely little photo since they only came in children’s sizes. I mean…come on, it’s a kitten wearing a tiny t-shirt, somehow hovering over the city of Florence. Practical and adorable.]
