Friday (Vrijdag) the 13th! Kiss a black cat!

It's Friday the 13th!

As Cattonians, we understand that this is supposed to be a bad-luck day for some cultures here on planet earth... Holland also holds to this superstition (bijgeloof) .

I say "pffft"! What nonsense! (Wat een onzin!) .

I'm trying to kiss my brother Finn... he's being difficult, as usual.

Here's an inkbrush drawing of Finn by our "mom".
She doesn't think he's unlucky (ongelukkig) !

On Cattonia, where we are originally from (see our first ever blog post "Geen Idee"), black cats are considered lucky (gelukkig) ! Really lucky !

So, go find yourself a black cat and kiss it (if you can) ... today (vandaag) ! I'm off now to find Finn to sneak up on him and steal a small kiss (kusje stelen) .

*wink* ;-)

Just a note of reminder, because we've recently been asked to explain,
Why we blog in two languages? :You will notice our posts are almost always peppered with dutch; sometimes only words, but also sentences. We're doing this because our American human has to learn this language and it is not an easy language (although, dutch is far easier than Cattonian... ). We hope we don't confuse you with the use of two languages in our posts, but our Dutch human and our American human actually speak a sort of combination of the two languages that they call "dinglish" ! We've caught on quickly to what they speak, because we are cats (of course), but they haven't quite got the hang of Cattonian ... yet. Meow! :D


Tot ziens!

Don't they just! LOL

Sacha says she can understand everything and chooses to ignore a lot, if her bowl isn't full!
