Dear readers,

 

Chers lecteurs,

 

My name is Milo. I've always lived at The Little White House. That is, until my owners decided to sell it and move two streets away two years ago.

 

Je m'appelle Milo et j'ai toujours vécu à la Petite Maison. Mais mes maîtres ont décidé, il y a deux ans, de partir s'installer dans une bien plus grande maison située deux rues plus loin et je ne m'y suis jamais habitué.

Granted their new house is twice as big as the old cottage and the garden is at least three times bigger... But I can't get used to it.

So I kept coming back to my old cottage, even though the new owner, who's a petite blonde with a way too high pitched voice, didn't feed me or let me in and brought me back to my rightful owners everytime I popped at her window...

 

Alors, j'ai pris l'habitude de revenir souvent voir mon ancienne maison, mais la Petite Blonde qui habite maintenant me rendait toujours à mes propriétaires. A croire qu'elle ne comprenait vraiment rien...


But I never stayed at the new house and I spent months "in the wild".

But, well, I'm not getting any younger so last summer I was really fed up of that life and decided to find my solution.

During the whole month of August, I sat at the living-room window sill every evening. I looked at the petite blonde straight in the eyes... because I know my amber eyes are the cutest thing. I also miaowed a lot. Except, I don't really know how, so it sounds more like "me, me, me"... What heart of steel wouldn't melt at that?

She didn't feed me, but it was ok: there are so many mice around here in August and I did manage to steal some "croquettes" (that word is so missing in English - it means dry food) in the neighbourhood.

I knew I had to be patient.

One evening, I could see in her eyes she was about to give up and she brought me some "croquettes".

 

Du coup, j'ai fugué et plus personne ne m'a vu pendant des mois, mais la vie d'errance est fatigante et j'ai décidé de trouver une fois pour toute une solution. Je suis revenu à la Petite Maison tous les soirs du mois d'Août. Petite Blonde refusait de me nourrir, mais je restais sur le rebord de la fenêtre à la fixer avec mes yeux d'ambre, histoire de la faire craquer... J'ai aussi tenté le miaou charmeur, ma spécialité: je ne prononce que la syllabe "mi", ça ferait fondre n'importe quel coeur de pierre.

 

Only a few days later she opened the door to me and there! By all my whiskers! The house was so changed I was as scared as a mouse and actually ran away!

I came back a while later... just to check on things...

Anybody would be surprised, don't you think?

 

Et quand elle a enfin cédé et m'a ouvert la porte... Par mes moustaches, la peur de ma vie, je n'ai rien reconnu et j'ai détalé en vitesse... Puis, poussé par la curiosité (ou mon goût pour la déco?), je suis revenu inspecter.


Entry as it looked when I left the house... L'entrée telle qu'elle était quand j'habitais là...

What "Petite Blonde" did with the same wall... Et ce que Petite Blonde en a fait...

I mean, wouldn't have you been surprised as well?

 

Vous n'auriez pas été surpris, vous?

 

Now, truth be told, if I've won over Petite Blonde, I'm not best friend with "the other"...

PS: I know your eyes will see that the walls are not painted yet, that the baseboard is crappy and needs to be changed and that the buffet is very shiny... But a cat doesn't see that and sees everything that has already been done... I love him for that!!! - Magali, aka Petite Blonde.

Il est vraiment mignon ce Milo... et puis on peut le comprendre, c'est tout de même mieux maintenant qu'avant... et puis la propriétaire est tellement gentille !
