My Adventure

Hi, it is me: Sjimmie!
Here I am overlooking the world and fantazising about the adventures ahead of me......
Here I am in Massachusset, where Mim taught me how to fish with a rod.
I taught Mim how to eat raw fish and how to swallow fish tails without choking.
Here I arrived in Rhode Island. A bit shy, not sure I found Lolo's home.
As soon as they spotted me they took me in and found me a spot near the fireplace .
I made friends with Emma and Bliss!
In New Hampshire I met Bibbity and Emily at Suki's place.
She understood my special diet. You see the tomatoes and canned mushrooms at the table?
Here I am learning to blow peace bubbles.
Good thing that I have my back turned to that mouse (didn't even know he was there!) ........otherwise that peace mission would have ended disastrously.
At Katie Jane's in Ohio I had a quiet time in the sculpture park "Pyramid Hill".Pity I was on a leash........ Saw so many unknown birds there, I would have loved to get aquainted with!
Here I am in Malaysia where Caroline showed me the twin towers and where I learned to play Mahjong.
Don't tell Mum, but when Caroline came with her camera we put the beer under the table!
Wish I could have taken some sunshine home with me.............
In Vincennes at Lisa's I got a history lesson.
Besides that strange guy we saw, I noticed a white wolf living in Lisa's home!
Strange place........
In California I enjoyed the sunshine and sunflowers.
It was nice meeting Henry V at Lynn's, never met Royalty before.
I met my equal in him.
I ended my journey with a blast!
A cat party in London!
Although Soul always says she doesn't like cats, she secretly fell in love with me and planned to send the wrong cat to Holland.
Thank Goodness Snuffles prevented this mistake.
Snuffles is Queen of her castle and I rule in Zierikzee again!
Mom cried when I got home. She missed me like crazy.
So did Lars and Felix. The other cats thought they had gotten rid of me for good ,
but.......I'm back, this time to stay!
