Three Years You Have Been Missed

Today marks three years since mama Lucky made her last purr.

We decided to name her Lucky after the catman and I decided to keep her. I still remember that late afternoon when we picked her up from the backyard and were about to give her her first bath as a welcoming gesture. It’s like telling her, “you’re not welcome to sleep inside the house unless you’re clean and smelling nice!” She did not like to get wet at all, so it was a bit of a challenge to get her cleaned up.

Lucky baby, we had been so lucky to have you and your naughty, funny furry babies. We love and miss you forever, sweet furry you, the first of our traveling cats. And the same with baby Dancer. We trust that you have found each other and are having fun tickling and biting each other everyday. No more pains, no tumors, no wounds, no more vets. xoxo

The Traveling Cats – Moving again?


Yes! Cats de Block will be traveling again.

So… After making the decision to move once more, we are faced with this new challenge of how to get all of our furry 7 out of Thailand and off to Europe in a few months. When I wrote this post in late 2015 (last year), our options were Holland, Austria, Germany, Ireland, UK, Spain, Portugal, etc. We chose Spain and my husband Ronald left for Malaga in September 2015. The cats were supposed to follow soon after; however, their trip was cancelled as I had decided to extend my stay in Thailand.

After a brief holiday in Saigon (last week of January 2016), I arrived back in Bangkok to a new job offer which I decided to accept. After a month at my new workplace, I summoned hubby back and he returned to Thailand albeit reluctantly.

As I am updating this post on October 19, 2016, exactly a week after Thailand’s beloved King Bhumidol Adulyadej passed away, Ronald is scheduled to fly to Vienna. The cats will follow. For sure this time.
