Pogo is settling in!

On Saturday when Pogo arrived into her new home it was so hard to take a picture of her because she would not stop walking around exploring her surroundings. As it turned out we forgot to turn off the sound blaster that's supposed to scare away the mice. Poor pogo must have been walking up and down trying to figure out where that damn mouse was all day (the sound blaster mimics mice sounds to make it appear as though there is a dominant male mouse already living in the house). So now with that sorted out she is behaving like a normal cat, that is she sleeps and plays all day.

Wow, I love the black all around her eyes, its kind of like women who try to look like a cat with eyeliner. She is sweet!

Hello Angela! I'm a fellow expat blogger also living by Vondelpark! Found your blog and just wanted to say hello and welcome to Amsterdam! Your place looks lovely and your cat is adorable! I'm also adding you on Twitter (I'm dabeesknees) but I promise I'm not a stalker! :)

Hi Amanda! Thank you! I must admit we have set ourselves up pretty good here :)

I've also added you on twitter, it's nice to follow local people :)

Hi Angela, thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. I love the expat network! By bizarre coincidence we are also living near the Vondelpark (although I am not sure which side you are on, we are south). Pogo looks gorgeous, we imported our cat with us from the UK and he is an excellent mouse deterrent. We have had only one rodent visitor in 2+ years. If you need recommendations for a cat sitter let me know. Our cat sitter is excellent and also near the Vondelpark.

Hi Emmy!

We're on the south west side of Vondelpark! I think we must be pretty close!

I will take you up on that cat sitter sometime soon! Exploring Europe is so easy to do from Amsterdam... it's right in the middle of everything :)

What a cutie! My husband and dog are dying to have a cat, but we live on the 1st floor and my husband is convinced that cats should be able to go in and out freely... so we wait until we get our next place *sigh*
