I guess with nine lives you can start your new year a day late.
And in all fairness, I’m pretty sure you could decide on a whim that official New Year’s Day is today, and none of humanity would bat an eyelid. You are the Boss.
Unfortunately I have no cats of my own, but I was pawsitively thrilled to spend New Year’s with my friends’ cats, petting them (in the case of Oreo) and trying to pet them (in the case of Kiki).
Other nice moggies can be found at Helsinki cat café, a cattractive place to get rid of your catlessness blues.
One of my favourite ever cats was my housemate Megan’s cat Miumiu in Vietnam, who was adopted as a kitten off the streets and brought us mognificent amounts of joy as our friend/companion/cockroach destroyer/sofa scratcher/katgaroo/catfish.
Also, as my dear friend Hannele pointed out, ‘Mew’ is also a band. And their song ‘156’ has remained in miaow top songs for over a decade now.
Happy Mew Year!
