Good times...

Let me tell you I've had the time of my life on the lake cottage today... The weather has been gorgeous, and I've spent most of the day outside. Also something very interesting happened in the morning. One of the kids was fishing on the pier, and look what he catched! A great big live pike! The fresh living fish was introduced to me, but I guess I have spent too much time as an indoor cat, since I HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH THIS KIND OF FISH!

It was actually quite frightening in my opinion! OMC, can you believe it! I'm a bit embarrassed now, where were my instincts when I needed them! I'm only used to process fish that is already sliced and canned for me!
But luckily the big one catched also a perch later on, which he was nice enough to prepare for me on the grill. This is more like it!

A nice lunch with a view!

And, now we have teleported us back home again. Well, if you can call a two hour drive in a hot car teleporting... But I behave very well, I'm already such an experienced traveller!


  1. "Good times" is an understatement!

    Holy cats, look at that fish! We're not sure what we'd do if we saw one like that. But we'd take him grilled, that's for sure. Yum.

    As for the car travel, well, better you than us. But it sure looks like it was worth it. :-)

  2. Wow, freshly caught and cooked fish! I can only imagine....

  3. You KNOW the entire cat blogosphere is dying of fresh fish envy!

  4. Yup! We are envious!
    We are not sure what we would do with a real live fish either!
    Fresh cooked fish...YUM!
    Looks like you had a pawsome time :)

  5. We thinks you is a furry brave kitty Carlos, 'cuz we hates car rides. Mom bean doesn't like them either when we are with her.

    We don't think we'd like the real live dead fish either until it was cooked and ready to eat. But isn't the outdoor whiffies amazing?
