My American Cats

I write enough about my family but not usually about our two cats, Velcro and Skwaky.(and this picture again because I'm in AWE at how much stuff we brought via airplane)

My imported kittys made the move here with us from American and I've decided that at $1000 a pop these little things are the most expensive cats in Europe and I have to make sure I take care of them!

I don't think I ever told about their journey here but it was amusing and involved happy drugs, hotel rooms, endless paperwork, cat scans at security checks, and lots of meow-ing. :)

Anyways, we just ran out of American cat food; and YES, I did bring enough cat food to last an entire year. :) Turns out my cats don't find the new Danish cat food very yummy. They hardly eat anymore. They just sprint into the cat food room everytime I go near it hoping I'll give them some better food. I've tried different brands and even tried Whiskas which is a brand I know... but just like a Nestle cookie from here tastes nothing like a Nestle cookie from home, maybe Whiskas doesn't taste the same either.

I just sent an email to a friend who has already gone back to the states asking her what her American cats ate. :) OH, the problems I have...!

Oh Well, I'm off to coffee morning with all the other moms, and NOT Scotty. :) Scotty was last seen at bornehaven happily reading ToysRus brochure. Now I can just sit and not worry about him destroying someone else's home.

Ingrid, why can't you come? We are beginning to think you don't like us anymore! :)

How did you manage to bring all these boxes to DK? That is a lot of luggage!

I have a cat too but I don't think I'll bring her to Denmark when I move.

I guess that means I have the SECOND MOST EXPENSIVE pets in DK...since I only brought Albert and Emmitt with me!! LOL...
Luckily my boys both ate Hills Science diet in the US and Mads had the task of finding it before we moved them here last spring..... but with treats, that is a DIFFERENT STORY! Emmitt will ONLY eat a certain kind of cat treat and he jumps up nightly on the same place, waiting for it...and you guessed it, you cannot find it in DK! We ran out a week ago, but my daughter is bringing four large pkgs when she comes next week! I figure Emmitt is almost eleven... I need to not change his habits TOOO much! LOL

what we do for our animals....

but also, what they do for us! I cannot imagine being here, without my family, and not having Albert and Emmitt alongside me.

We feed our cats Royal Canin, which you can get in several places in DK - the pet stores, of course, but also totally illogical places like Plantorama.

However, in truth, we buy 99% of our pet supplies online from a company called ZooPlus. My husband can get German so we purchase it through their site as it's cheaper than buying locally.

I brought 4 cats with me, but only 2 of them remain in this world. :(
