Pia

A person has moved in with us, her name is Pia and she’ll be 8 this fall. She’s super social, super cuddly, super curious and acts a bit like a dog. When living in Gothenburg, our neighbour Lisa often came to visit and I never thought I would meet a cat like her ever again. Pia settled in very quickly and has presented herself as a very well behaved lady, wanting to play a lot and taking up the biggest part of our tiny bed.

How come Pia? Just look:

A guy I know posted about his friend having to leave Pia at the animal shelter in case no one took her. Pia came from a home where she lived with a big dog (quite similar to Peps) and her facial expression was just too funny. From this one picture, I decided she had to move to our place (well, it had to be OK with Johan obvs). The living with a dog was a very important factor, she hasn’t yet met Peps – I really hope they’ll get along (well, at least can be in the same flat).

OK, so wondering: Is anyone still here? Or is instagram enough these days? Since I’m not reading any blogs I kind of wonder why I’d run one myself ifyouknowwhatImean.

    I’m here πŸ˜‰ But your blog is one of only three blogs I still read religiously. I kind of miss reading blogs though. And having a blog. Maybe I should start one again 🧐 Anyway…Pia is stunning. I can see why you fell in love with here from that one picture. Hope she falls in love with peps and vice versa. They would make a cute couple of friends 😁

    I still read blogs, at least of the few people who blog irregularily. I use feedly to keep track. Instagram is increasingly reel-focused and its algorithms shows me a very strange timeline of picture posts ….as in I am missing some people’s static pictures. So odd and frustrating, so I am going to IG less and less.

      Still here πŸ™‚ I like to read blogs sometimes. Instagram is getting a bit annoying with all the reels. Reading a blog with pictures is better than a long caption on an instagram post. I have to say that I would read your blogs because I like the content you post on insta. Your perspective, creativity, and observations are inspiring and often make me smile. Also love your wrist worms.

      Frustrating it is indeed, I heard they will change it back to the timeline being based on… time, hope it’s true. If you know what I mean, that description turned out funny haha.

    Also still here, although I just stopped by as a fluke since I know you haven’t been updating. Very pleasantly surprised. Pia is adorable.

    Still here, reading a few blogs, but they are dwindling in number. Pia is so cute! She looks like a wonderful companion. You are lucky.

    At the moment I read just 3 or 4 blogs. And I find it really calming (Instagram? Not so much).

    I have been finding a few more blogs lately but I have a ‘inner circle’ of favorites. I was on IG several years back and am no longer. I just appreciate the photos and format of the blog. I had been wondering just last week how you were and so glad to see your newest post pop up in my feed reader. I always say I am not a cat person but she is just beautiful. Hopefully her personality is the same!

    I’m still here! Instagram is awful. I miss the days of settling down with a coffee and reading through my favourite blogs (yours was always #1!!). It’s a much more relaxing way to enjoy the content. So glad that you are writing again!

    I love your posts whatever the forum!
    Maybe you can just keep posting when you want and in the forum of your choice -think more about your needs than us followers- because we are there like the sun shining on your walks wherever you go (not in the creepy “I see you” but friendly way of course. :)).
    Also, I love cats and Pia is a beauty!

    I checked in almost every day until a few weeks ago. You cannot imagine how surprised and pleased I was to see you again. Hope you’re back for good.

    I think more people are blogging again. Blogging is therapeutic, a way to connect with others we relate to, and the world at large.

    Be well.

    Hello Sandra, it’s great to have you back. Was getting worried as you disappeared. I stopped my Instagram ages ago, it’s just too toxic and time consuming and too full of pretend perfect lives… I still like blogs, the few that are around. You can read them at your leisure while having a cup of coffee, instead of doomscrolling. And Pia is beautiful, like a perfect cat for a kind witch. Glad Elivs is still around too. Oh – happy spring!

    Still here πŸ™‚ and very glad you are still posting! Instagram is convenient but it can be a frenzied and overwhelming place… Reading blogs is a lot more relaxing and enjoyable. Also, Pia is adorable!

    Still reading and still delighted when you post! And I also still have the two prints I bought from you in…2009, I think (?!) on my mantlepiece. They were in every home I had in London and are now very happy here in Australia πŸ™‚ I stopped using social media earlier this year because it has proved to be such a drain on my time, energy and self-worth. I love blogs too and I sense a renaissance in the air….
