Our cat Star is 10 years old today. This is her story.

Our old student home had a huge colony of cats when we moved in. Numbering well over 20 individuals these little critters had both food and shelter provided by the groundskeeper, but the climate in Sweden is not forgiving and anyone used to cats could tell that their situation wasn’t a happy one.

Star was born under our house in spring 2002, and I first spotted her together with the rest of her litter sitting under a fernleaf, they were oh so visible but they were sure they had a great hiding place.

Growing up on a yard makes for a different kind of cat, this is one tough lady that trusts nobody. She goes hunting every day and we are never sure how far she wanders. She is very much her own cat. She generally steers clear of the kids, but enjoys entering their room when they are asleep to smell them and sometimes sleep a bit at Arons feet. 

During her years with us she have accomplished many remarkable things among them escaping from a stone house by way of secret passage, taking holiday from us and surviving 8 months by herself, straight thru one of the coldest Swedish winters. An avid hunter she is the scourge of the local wildlife, one of her nicest tricks is to bring rodents or birds in alive, only to then go to relax, knowing that her prey doesn’t know to to operate the cat flap. The hunt resumes at her leisure unless other residents of the same flat help the prey escape.


Today she got celebrated with cakes and presents, she attended her own party for a full 3 seconds, quickly realizing we were about to sing she again departed for the woods.

The cake was great and we love you little kitty!

    I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
