June 19th

Crouching cat, hidden food bowl

After a blind cat moved in some weeks ago no food bowl is safe. Especially has the kitchen been the victim of a crouching cat always ready to attack an innocent food bowl. That being said it is not much easier being a food bowl in the living room, the library, the hall. I guess you get the drift here. Food bowls is now always under attack from a purring and meowing white and grey furry thing with a toothless grin.

The Model say: “It is not like I never pay the food bowls visits myself, I rather enjoy that actually, but excuse me… it is not a good sight seeing another cat standing with 2 paws and drooling over what used to be food. It does kinds of get your appetite down.”

Confidenza the Hen was today out patrolling the field looking for tasty edibles in the shape of crawlies and creepers. She was just testing out a new possible snack when she was rudely interrupted by a crazy looking human waving her arms like she was trying to fly rudely pushing the hard working hen away from her new found possible snack. The attacked scorpion was last seen moving into a brick wall.

The scorpion said: “Yeeze, I was heading over to the next stone to pick up a foxy chick, and not to be picked up by a not at all foxy hen!”

The Party!

The welcome party for all the new citizens was a huge success. The food was great and the mode even better. After a while the tired guest went home, but the pigs just kept going and going. They stayed up to the sun went down! Off course 2 pigs might have been described as rather grumpy when they got up this morning, after such a tiny nap at only 10 hours.

DJ sQuil said: “Jeeze that was a fun party. Oh my, am I feeling rather groggy today! Can I sleep for just one more hour please? NOOOOOO! I should have though about that yesterday you say!! Hey, you just can’t off and leave a party when it is still tomatoes on the ground and wonderful pigtunes to be oinked!”

Moving out, moving in

The geese have now moved into the vacant plot left o of the pigs last year. Unfortunately the plot is not as vacant as it is told to be, as some pigs in the shape of Big Daddy claims that he has first right to the property and all food left on it.

The Geese say: “PLEASE! Can anyone get that big black blob out of out food bowl! Fix the fence while you are at it. PLEASE!”


Yesterday the Boy Toy was the victim of a really cruel sabotage attack. We all know it is not easy being famous for being such a beauty, but still, who would ever sink so deep to place a gum under his favourite spot at this pub? This was also obviously a planned attack, as nobody except a very well informed spy would have known of his visit at all. The MIA(u) (Maifrin Intelligence Agency) has traced the perpetrator (scumbag) back t a very jealous neighbour dog famous for having nothing but bad fur days.

The Boy toy say: “I can still see the nudge in my otherwise perfect fur. How can anyone steep this low?”

Tobias the kitten has now moved in

Today Tobias the kitten (finally) moved in. This is very good news indeed, as it means that he not only get to keep both his eyes, but that they actually work as well. There are rumours going around that he will actually fit in with our clan, as he after 2 hours all ready had befriended the dogs, Seniora, the chicks and the pigs. He would most likely had befriended more, but his need for a nap got in his way.

Tobias will from no one been known as the Kitten.

The Kitten was available for the following comment. “zzzzZZZZZzzzzzZZZZZZzzzzzz”

More new Citizens!

The Maifrin immigration office is busy these days, as the Kitten is not the only one who has moved in this weekend. Chicken, geese and sheep has also been applying. All applications was found in order in accordance to the Maifrin Constitution, and therefore approved of.

The Sheppard had the following question: “When is the sheep big enough to move in, when when WHEN?”

Hot treatment

Today the Sheppard went off with one of the humans, and went all the way to the big city. There she was observed both taking a footbath (more like dipping really) and drinking (more like sipping really) the famous healthy drops from the local hot spring.

The Sheppard said: “I have a suspicion that the so called health benefit of drinking and bathing in this water is highly exaggerated as my tail is still limb. Ah, who need a tail anyway?”

Working hard for a living

Mike and Ralph have now started with their new job, which consist on cleaning up the outskirts of our kingdom. The goats are vey proud to have this very important job, and is always hard at work. For instance was pruning the wild cherries long overdue, but not a worry, the goats are at it.

Mike say: “I'ts a hard job, but somebody needs to do it!”

Dealing and wheeling

Today the pigs were seen sneaking off to see their private deliveryman. As normal a big box of apples and some other tasty snack arrived shortly thereafter.

The Pig department had the following comment: “All animals are allowed to forage for their own food; we pigs are just more practical about it than the rest of you.”

Number of eggs today: 5

The Dogs recommends you to find something to hold onto, and hold on hard.

June 11th 2010


A lot have happened since you last heard from us, mostly good, but also some things sad.

The Maifrin clan has grown, so we know consist of
4 cats 2 dogs 2 minipigs 1 rabbit 1 tiny parrot 2 goats 2 roosters 9 hens 3 chickens

And if you think it stops there, you are not correct. 2 minisheep, a rooster and cats are scheduled to move in. Oh and that’s just the ones that are already scheduled. Just as before we are a colourful animal kingdom, and especially animals in needs seems to pop by and keep staying.

Of the more sad news both the Rooster and the Chief Cat have left us. They both fought long and hard, but in the end they could do nothing but go to rest. But if there si such a thing as a better place, you be sure to know where to find them.

The Chief lost his life to CRF (Chronic Renal Failure)

While the Rooster lost his life due complications as a result of bad breeding and bad treatment provided by his breeder.

We are sad that we have to loose them so early, but happy for the time we had with them. They are now resting in peace.

You can read more about Lupus the Chief here:

You can read more about the Rooster here:

If you want to know more about the rest of us, just click at our photos, and most of us have put out our biographies. Not all off course, as somebody (let me not mention name) haven’t manage to write them yet. Rest assures they will be forced to do so, shortly!

Today Mrs Pear was happy to finally get her appointment with the pedicure specialist. It had been a long wait but it was all worth it. The happy Mrs has afterwards been observed taking some very long walks looking very happy indeed.
Mrs Pearl is out walking and therefore not available for comments, but her husband Mr Pearl had the following statement: “This is such a good day. She have been struggling with some inwards growing legfeathers for several days, making it hard for her to walk. I am so happy to se her enjoying her walks again. Oh my, she is even more beautiful than ever. Pearl, Pearl wait for me, wait for me!”

Not even a week after the Chief (cat) left us, a kitten turns up at our doorstep. Unfortunately he suffer from a virus that has attacked his eyes seriously, and he is in danger of loosing one of his eyes. The cat had been found wondering around in the street, most likely dumped there by his previous owner due to his poor health. The kitten was promptly named Tobias, and is now safe at the vets.
The Peace Supremo say: “If you need to get some evil thoughts off your mind, I am not saying you do, but if you do, please direct them to the previous human to Tobias. Please do so loudly! Thank you! Tobias is now under our protection.”

New home!
The Goats have now spent their first night in their new home here at Maifrin. The Bleating Corner seems to serve the goats every need, and happy bleating is now filling the air. At least in between some serious chewing.
The Goats say: “JUHUU our own home, and filled with snack as long as we can see. Let us tell you, those black currants thorn, my do they taste delish! Delish we tell you.”

Today Seniora had to answer some really hard question to get her new passport. After some thought she answered them as follows, with pride!
Name: Giovanna
Breed: My mother was a cat, my father, I don’t know.
Breeder: The streets of Stefano.
Owners: EXCUSE ME!!!?
Colors: White with tabby spots
Special characteristics: I am blind, toothless, miss a part of my tong and my left eye just wont open properly.
The Seniora had this to say about the matter: “Excuse me, but digging into my private life like that! Is nothing sacred anymore?”

Number of eggs today: 4

Weather forecast:
Hot but also cloudy.
The dogs recommends you to find somewhere with air condition.


Important message to all snails
The STA (Snail Travel Assurance) would like to inform all snails that from now on snails who are travelling in the Casa Maifrin area will no longer be covered by the ordinary travel assurance as this area is deemed unsafe after the infestation of the two black blobs (for some known as minipigs). For the snails who were already in the area when the infestation started an evacuation has been started, we are working as fast as we can.

Lap needed
A big soft lap always sited in the sofa is needed for an old rag of a cat.
