My Cousin, Minou the Cat

First, I would like to say how happy I am to report, that my mom is back from Big World Assignment! Mom is a very good reporter and she got me lots of pictures of my new animal friends, so please stay tuned!


Today I would like to introduce my cousin, Minou the Cat! Minou lives with my mom's aunt in Haarlem, Holland. Minou is about 12 years old now, and lives in a wonderful 7th floor apartment.

Minou did not always have it so good. She was found homeless wandering the streets near the border of Belgium and Luxembourg.

Mom's aunt's friend found her and mom's aunt immediately went to go get her to adopt her because she was so sweet.

My mom had not seen Minou for about two and a half years. She was suprised to see how much bigger Minou had gotten! Minou is a little (or a lot) on the plump side......but I don't think she realizes it!

In this picture, you can see she likes to talk a lot.....just like me!

Minou is very spoiled, and even has her own balcony for watching birdies and taking sun naps!

Minou says "hello" to everyone in the blog world, but says she does not have a computer or internet so she can't blog. She is very excited that I might make her famous with my story about her!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

Hi JB... I'm glad your mom is back safe and sound and I can't wait to see all the photos and stories of your animal friends!

Minou is beautiful and looks very intelligent. She looks like she has lots to say. Love those green eyes!

Does Minou speak Dutch or Flemish?

Minou looks like a wonderful cat, but I'm not sure she is saying nice things from the look on her face.
