Hallo … Mein Name ist Berlin!
That means ‘hello … my name is Berlin’ in German. Did you know cats are the number one most popular pet in Germany? Germany sure sounds like a nice place so I figured I should learn the basics just in case I get the chance to visit my namesake city one day. Wanna know what I’ve learned so far?
First of all, I’ll have to remember to say ‘Miau’ instead of meow so I don’t look like a tourist. “Miez-miez-meiz’ means come over here for cuddles and treats. Okay, I made that last part up but why else would you call me over. ‘Katze’ means cat but if you really love me you’ll call me ‘Miezekatzchen’ or kitty. Those are nice names but Germans have the very best word for their beloved pet cats … ‘Stubentiger’! It means ‘living room tiger’. Isn’t that the best?
Cat owners have their very own nickname too, ‘Dosenoffner’ which means ‘can opener’ so those Germans must know how to feed us cats right with yummy wet food. When travelling you always need to know how to ask for the restroom so I learned that ‘Katzenklo’ is litterbox, which I know how to use perfectly by the way.
If I hear the word ‘Katzenspielzeug’, I’m going to come running because I love to play with toys, tunnels, kickers, balls and wand toys are all on my list of favourites … do you think they have those in Germany too or should I pack them in my suitcase? I think I have almost everything I need for my trip to Deutchland except they don’t let us cats on the plane by ourselves, so I guess I’ll have to find someone to take me. Or maybe if I find a family here that wants to make me their ‘Stubentiger’ I don’t even have to go to Germany … could you maybe be my ‘Dosenoffner’?
Berlin is fully vetted and has been adopted.
