As you know, Brucy is quite a fashionista and obviously we couldn’t miss the fashion event of the year – the Paris Fashion Week: Chanel Fall/Winter 2014 Collection. This year, Karl Lagerfeld shocked everyone when he transformed the Grand Palais into a supermarket, filling it with supermarket aisles! The models started the show casually walking down the aisles with groceries (that included cat food)! The show also included some celebrity – models like Rihanna and Cara Delevingne.
We loved the collection for its cool, urban vibe- loads of knits, leggins and sneakers! Go Karl!

I know that many of you bloggers love the “How would you caption this photo” posts. I never did one, but when I saw this cute photo on Catmoji, I just couldn’t resist. So are you ready for the bi question? How would you caption this photo?
Brucy and I loooove the Oscars and Ellen, so we couldn’t miss this selfie chance!
Despite the joy of watching the Oscars – Brucy had quite a difficult weekend! Saturday morning she woke everyone up early because she was meowing really loudly and then started being sick. I immediately suspected that she ate something toxic but as she eats everything she finds in the house – it was difficult to say what exactly provoked the reaction! I hid all the plants, and after a while she started feeling better.
Sunday morning the mystery was solved! I saw her eat the flower bulb of a daffodil and then a few minutes later she started being sick again! I realized that daffodils are extremely poisonous for cats and his them away. . Poor thing – I wish I knew before!
So beware of daffodils and double check your plants are not toxic for cats before buying them!
Sorry for not giving you any Brucy news for such a long time – I was away in London for a few days for work! As I love English TV so much, yesterday morning, I couldn’t resist watching some English shows. I came across a fascinating program on BBC about cats.
The experiment was to see what cats do when their owners are not around. A group of researchers attached very light micro-cameras with GPS tracking devices to the collars of different cats in Surrey, UK and studied their movements for a few weeks. The maps of their routes from a 24-hour period were then mapped and compared. The map shows exactly when are where each cat went and what it did (played with a string, chased the birds etc.)
What’s also were interesting is that the collars were specially designed for each cat to make sure they are the right size and weight.
I think this is a fascinating experiment that shows how much the characters of the cats differ and how active they are during the day despite what we think!
Check out the maps and the video recordings of the cats’ movements here!
Everyone at works knows about my passion for cats. Thus, now, every time someone sees an article, photo or a video about cat, they send it to me. Today one of my colleagues shared this amazing video with me. This commercial was filmed in 2006 by EDS to show how versatile their company is by making a comparison to cowboys herding cats! I love how well this ad is filmed that makes it so memorable! Some information on the ad:

I am absolutely in love with this bookcase and cat tree in one – CatCase! I remember spending days looking for a cat tree that is not in neon or in awful leopard print.. This is the perfect solution for people who search for a cat tree that is functional and design!
The best part is that your books are safe as the shelves containing them are protected by a back wall. The only tiny negative is the price – I am sure that many of you agree that 1249 euros is a little bit steep.. But what if we would construct an alternative using the basic Ikea shelves? Anyone wants to take the challenge?
