A cats life, Mimi the Cat

Updated on September 21, 2014

My cat Mimi!

About a year ago, me and my wife Cindy were walking home from a night out eating Ice-cream, pizza and that kind of stuff, having a blast!

We started talking about one of the cats that she owns and how goofy some of them can be. Out of nowhere, this cat comes out of the waste pipe and start meowing awwww ;'( the poor kitty. I just looked at Cindy and our heads nodded at the exact same time, we picked her up and carried her home. Poor baby she was so scared and skiny, she also smelled but what else do you expect when a cat comes out a sewer. We gave her a bath, dried he up gave her some food, and in a few days she recovered.

Cindy says she won the lottery, well you might say that she did, but we were lucky to find her.

She changed our life.

Sorry Mimi :(

You need a bath badly

Ship Kitty!

If anyone of you watched Totoro you know what a cat bus is, well Mimi here done a catshitp :)

A couple of nasty flees were on board.

Bath is over Mimi is happy - Just look at that baby girl :)

Awww Mimi!
Awww Mimi!

Once she was all dried up and stuffed with food she took a nap in front of our computer right under the hair thingy XD Poor puka. She was probably exhausted and still getting used to her new environment. We were so glad once we took her into our home knowing that winter is coming soon and she might not have made it :'(

She is a very cute and cuddly creature and really likes to be petted. Once she got used to us, she started sleeping in the bed, usually over my face or groin, deepens what's warmer at the time.

I used to wake up with mimi on my chest nibbling on my beard, my wife told me she was licking my nose earlier XD

Cat Bus Nyan Cat!

Here is the cat bus from the anime " My neighbor totoro "

I mentioned ship kitty or " Cat Ship " when Mimi Took a bath :)

Anime time!

How many of you have watched the Anime My neighbor totoro, it is a wonderful children cartoon that features two sister who are waiting their mother to get well from the hospital.

Did you see the cartoon?

This cartoon made me laugh and cry, it is a jewel of it's time

All of us remember that one thing as a child that we watched over and over because it made us feel special and it almost felt like it was made just for us, don't you agree :D

My neighbor Totoro is one of them, it makes you laugh it makes you cry, it is one of a kind.

My Neighbor Totoro
My Neighbor Totoro

Totoro to toro, totoro to toro

so catchy and satisfying :)


Cats are always nice companions and lovable pets

All comfortable and confident - The rule of mimi

Once she was relaxed and knows that we will take care of her she began showing some confident behavior. At the beginning she was really shy and scared, probably because she was born on the cruel unforgiving streets of Serbia. People here don't care for cats, they are just stupid animals to them with no feeling or emotions, the ignorant fools. Mimi was sure a blessing for us, every now and then she just started engaging us in her games, we no longer needed to play with her she played with us. She would take a rubber hair band and just fling it using her claw and her fangs, like a sling shot. and she then chased after it and binged it to us so we can throw it to her, it's like she was showing us what she wants to play.

Who can make you smile better :)


When you are tired and home from work, you can always rely on your pets to cheer you up.

Should you invest in your cats amusement?


All my cat needs is a box, a laser pointer and a hair band and she is happy, but we got her some proper toys too :)

Do you think cats like toys?

Think of all the innocent kittens without a mom cat or dad cat that are alone outside begging for food and enduring the cold and rainy days, instead of buying a sheltered cat, rescue the one meowing on the street, you will be a better person knowing that one cat less has to suffer.

Share your thought with me :)

Are you a cat person?

      I grew up with both in our household and continued the tradition in my own house. But when the last dog died, and I watched my cat mourn (yep, they do that) I decided no more pets. My older cat (Bill) is nearly 19 and his only real problem is that he still thinks he's a kitten at times. Thanks for a fun read today.

      I love cats, but discovered two years ago that I was allergic to them, so now my dear furbaby has gone, I won't be able to have another.

      Yes definitely. I have had cats for the last 10 years and we had them as children. What a beautiful story. Lucky Mimi, lucky you. My sister believes that cats often choose us. I don't think it was coincidence that you found Mimi.
