Hello kitties (or should I say Bonjour!)
Mommy brought me a very weird present yesterday that she found at a little shop downtown. It's a book. I know, what could a kitty possibly need with a book? Well... this is a special book written just for kitties! It's called "French for cats; all the French your Cat will ever need to know". I guess mommy wants me to learn the language of the origin of my name!
You see kitties, three years ago before mommy and daddy moved to CA and adopted me and brother they were going to move to Paris, France. Things changed and daddy took the job in CA instead, but they never gave up on wanting to move to Europe someday. Now, of course, so long as we have River in our family that won't happen. Because of River's FIV he can't cross national borders without being confiscated, and mommy and daddy would never ever in a million years part with River. They didn't intend to adopt a kitty that couldn't travel internationally but they bonded with River so I guess we're keeping him (despite the fact that he just ran across the keyboard while mommy was typing MY diary and put in all these funny letters she had to remove later!) I might be a cranky gal sometimes, but overall I'm happy we're keeping River. He's my brofur and I love him! I guess I still get to learn French though, just in case they ever change the laws and let River travel!
I've decided to take it upon myself to teach you kitties some French too, cause this is one handy little book let me tell you! It covers everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING a kitty would need to know! So, from now on, prepare yourselves for a French lesson at the end of all my diary entries and we can all learn to whine at our parents in more than one language! hehehe!
Bye bye for now kitties from Simone the Siamese
or... in French Simone le Siamois!
(Next time stay tuned for instructions on how to get rid of the dog... in French!)

How about Chat...shut up in french??? (Panda...give it a break!!!)
hmmmmmmm I'll check the book for you Tigger! Are you back? Did you get the computer to work? Oh I hope so!!!
A little culture is good for the soul now and then
No, hard trive corrupted, so we are just plodding on til ti finally dies. Daddy's trying to get some OT so we can get a new one!! Just hoping this one lasts til then.
Cool! Peekie and I are up for French lessons!
Learning French is a cool language. Mommy knows French well.
Her parents spoke french 80% of the time, and Mommy's ancestor's goes way back to the French/Canadian language.
bonjour mon ami means Hello friend.
I have that book too!! I actually read too! I have seen mommy holding books and staring at them for hours, so now she opens a book up on the floor and I lay on it & stare like I'm reading & eventually nod off. Mom gets such a kick out of this! Luv, Tink
Isn't it a great little book Tink? I love it! My favorite section discussed all the different types of nom noms there are as well as the napping spots. Hehehehe! That's so cute that you read books with your mommy!
Mommy always tells me I was meant to lay on the back of a chair gazing out at the Eiffel tower in Paris, but I guess I'm stuck here with my brofur in sunny CA. Sigh... I'm just such a classy lady! hehehe!
Poor, poor Simone. Youse stuck in "sunny CA" while I lives in rainy, col' MI. Poor, poor Simone.
hehehe... I guess it is rather silly of me to complain! And yet... despite how sunny and warm it is here, it's never warm enough for my meezer belly in the sun! You should come visit Ingen! Just hop a bus and come lay in the sun out here in CA for a while! Mommy will never know! hehehe! shhhhhhhhhhh, don't tell anyone!
I can't wait to learn a new language!
It's pouring rain all day here and freezing so no boo-hooing over the "lack of sun"!
My mommy only spoke french for the first 6 years of her life. then when she got some friends, that all went out the window.
oh kitties... is there NO sympathy for my chilly Moe Moe belly? It can ALWAYS be warmer for me. It's never ever ever warm enough. Even when it's over 100 I'm still not warm enough. Can't you kitties understand? You're all welcome to come hang out here with me in my CA sun! I'll share it! No kitty should be cold or chilly, we should always be warm and sunny babies! Come join me kitties, come join me and help keep me warm!
MRAT! We're leaving right now. Be there in 6 hours!
HRUMPH!!! Complaining bout California weather, while we're gettin MORE thunderstorms!!! I's repeat...HRUMPH!!! And it's supposed to rain ALL WEEK!!! HRUMPH double!!!
I'm calling ROAD TRIP!!!!!!
Ifn it bees dry, and nos thunder,,,,count mees in!!!
There's no thunder Blizzard and there are great big sunny windows in every room. We can get sun morning noon and evening! It's perfect! There's plenty of cat trees and toys for all! All kitties come hang out with me until your homes warm up! We can trade, then River can go with you kitties when it gets too hot here for him in the dead of summer! hehehe!
Mon Cherie Amour, Simone, I am so happy your pawrents never moved to Paris or we would never have known you and River! That would be pawful if we never knew the two of you! We look forward to your French lessons!
Simone, my dear moemoe, you are the classiest lady I know. Learning french ooooh this is gonna be fun, your mom is so cool I gotta come hang out and I never seen Ca ....oh yea mom just reminded me I am just to scared of anything outside of my house I cannot travel so I will learn from your diary.
I look forward to French lessons for kitties! I love anything French ~ it's so romantique. Oui, oui...wheee!
Do they have French for Fancy Feast in there? MOL! Because that's my favorite thing to meow about!
Tete a Tete... (Rire)
Mon Dieu! C'est bon...la langue Francois...MOL!
In Dutch we are Siamese...same as Anglois...boring!
Sometimes meowmy says all these languages she has roaming around in her head give her a kind of 'mal de tete'!
But it is fun anyways!
Congrats on being a diary pick today! French is beautiful. I have some French in my name. Pretty soon you will meow just like a Parisian kitty!
Congrats on your DDP today! Sweetart! So, Get rid of the dog huh? I need that for sure!!!!
Congrats on your DDP, honey!
OMC, did we miss your DDP yesterday? Blame Mom, she's been in a daze lately. We hope you had a pawsome day with lots of belly rubs and treats!
Tu es trop chouette, Simone! That means "You are too cute, Simone!" Mom took French all through school, but she doesn't feel confident about her French. She can read some, but can't speak well, and her accent is really terrible!
I would like to learn some kitty French! That would be useful! Mom told me about this little French mouse that was Jerry's cousin in Tom and Jerry, that used to say "Monsieur Pussycat!", and she calls me Monsieur Pussycat sometimes when she is feeling silly.
