J’ai besoin d’un secrétaire


What an insanely busy weekend it’s been at Le Château, and what a crazy amount we packed into 2 days: as well as being my birthday, we’ve spent time with members of Louis Catorze’s fan club whom we didn’t know before. Cat Daddy has shifted from finding these visits slightly eccentric to accepting them as part of normal life. In fact, when the alarm goes off in the morning, his first words to me are: “So … who is it today, then?”

We often used to talk about downloading one of those diary-sharing apps to avoid double-booking our own arrangements, yet we never got around to doing it. However, now that Louis Catorze has his own social engagements going on, we’re at the point where we’re struggling to keep it all together. I am yet to have to tell a friend, “Sorry, I can’t make Saturday night after all because some strangers who’ve read about my cat on the internet are coming to visit him”, but it’s only a matter of time.

This weekend we had 2 fabulous days with 2 sets of Catorze fans, and the funny thing was that we had so much more in common with them than just cats. Each time felt like welcoming good friends into our home, and Louis Catorze, who is great with new people, happily greeted his public with snuggles and dived headlong into the fabulous toys they had brought for him.

We’re pretty exhausted right now but profoundly grateful for the fact that our itchy black cat has brought us new friends. And Louis Catorze is now taking bookings for décembre …

  1. You know Nemone, if I did not live so far away….I’d be booking my audience with le roi in December! I find your blog so funny and quirky, I can’t wait for the next installment. For that resaon alone, you might need a secretary! Have yu got yourself a visitors book? I think you should, and what funny remarks you might read in years to come!

  2. I read this aloud to my husband and he likes it too. You really have a writing gift! A guest book for Le Roi might be a good idea :-), but if this goes on, you really need a secretary! Cause Le Roi is twittering as well and he does it well too 😉
    I really hope to book another audience with Le Roi and his staff next year! Oh, he and his staff are always welcome here as well, guess you know that right?!
