My cat is humping my bed

Yes, you read that correctly. My cat is humping my sheets and purring. I’ll just let him walk around my bed and put his claws in and out of the sheets. He’ll stop in a bit and lie down. The new food I bought for him is great. He is loving it. He also slept at our place just a few days ago. For the first time in a very long time. He slept on the stairs. His place. He likes it there. My silly cat. Sometimes I think his eyesight is a bit off. If you hold a little treat for him in your hand it takes him ages to find it and so it is the purrrfect moment to make fun of him. I sometimes call him fat or retarded in a sweet voice. Something I’d never say to a human but you know when I call Mause a fattie I am not even trying to hurt him. I say it in the same tone as I would say sweetie. I once bought lion manes for him and put it on his head. Oh… How he hated that. We thought it was hilarious. You got to have a little fun with your cat. Mostly, I am really nice to him though. He can get a bit aggressive but if you know him, you know exactly where to pet him and where he doesn’t like it and then he doesn’t scratch you. A cat with character. That’s what I like to call him. He’s done humping the bed and just left.

Today I am a month in the Netherlands. It is really nice to be here. I got great news by the way. I managed to complete my minor. That means all the hard work I did in London has been seen and I made it. I have done it. I finished it. Well, so my teacher in the Netherlands thinks. For my education here in the Netherlands I passed. That’s great! A step closer to becoming an English teacher.

I am also working really hard on my portfolio which is getting better everyday. I am also dating again. Doing therapy. Seeing friends. Trying to fit in time to be nice to our new housemate. Next to all of this I am also grieving. On the 15th of June my mother died. I always find June a hard month. Father’s day is also coming up. I can’t buy anything for my father. He’s dead. I might just light a candle this month but I have learnt to prioritize my schoolwork and so I will. I’ll focus on my portfolio and if I want to remember my mom sometime later this summer I will make time for it. It’s not like my love for her or my memory of her is suddenly gone if I don’t do something special on the 15th. In June there are always deadlines for school. So, I have to. I have to focus and so I will.

My cat just jumped back on the bed. He’s going to chill out while I work on my portfolio. I am enjoying the jazz music that is playing. It is nice weather. Who knows, I might make some time to have a walk outside. This evening I’ll see some friends. It feels a little bit like we are celebrating that I have finished my minor. Honestly, it makes me so happy. Now, my London time has a silver lining. I did it! I survived London! I just did it. BAM. Haha.

Well, I hope you are having a good time wherever you are and are kind to yourself. Enjoy the weather if it’s good weather and until next time! X

Mausieeeee
