Thoughts on Thursday

Well, tomorrow we are off to the Katzenpension (luxury cat hotel) for a week, while our humans are in Dublin. They will be running the Dublin marathon on Monday.

At the Katzenpension we will have a room entirely to ourselves, with plenty of cubbyholes to curl up in, and cat trees to climb. Unlike in August, when we were able to use the outdoor run on a daily basis, it probably won't be warm enough for us to go outside. Merlin is disappointed, as he loved the outdoor run!

The ladies at the Katzenpension take very good care of us, and spend lots of time petting us, playing with us, and, of course, feeding us and cleaning our litterbox. They enjoy having us there, because we are so friendly and unique!

When our humans return from Dublin, our typist should have more time to help us visit our friends. She'll be taking a month off of running, focusing on swimming, strength training and group fitness (ie. aerobics) classes, and then she'll start running again. She hopes to do several triathlons next spring and summer, as well as a half-marathon or two in the spring. So she'll be focusing on triathlon training over the winter. Although that means she'll be spending a lot of time at the gym, she also promises she'll have lots of time for us to blog and visit our friends, since she won't be doing any super-long runs like she has for marathon training.

So we will be gone all next week. We may be able to sneak a post or two while our humans are gone, but that all depends on whether we can get our paws on a computer. We hope that everyone will have a safe and happy week while we are gone.

Ooohhh You little kitty hotel sounds very nice!!
Momma wants somuch to run one of those one day, but like from her home, have bedrooms made into kitty motel rooms and stuff, and only have a few kitties at a time so she can give them enough attention... silly Momma I think she has enough on her hands just with us!

Please wish your Momma and Dadda safe travels and may they have lots of fun in the trip too!!

Another marathon? So soon? I didn't think people ran in those long races that close together.

Have fun at the kittie spa!

The Devil Dog said...

We will miss you terribly, but do tell your beans we wish them well in the marathon. We think your beans are awesome. Once mom is done revamping the sewing room, she is going to start her workout with weights again.
Take care, and have a lot of fun being pampered.

Have fun on your holiday. We go to our holiday place on 03/11 while our mum is away. We'll be there for 11 days but it should be fun 'cos mum told us there was an outdoor run and lots of hidey places as well as branches and cat trees to climb. We have a room to ourselves, too and lots of our favourite food and biscuits.

Have a lovely time on your holidays.
