The cat adventure begins.

The cat adventure begins.

Since we moved into our new house, both of us have been looking forward to adding a cat to our household. We had been visiting a lot of animal shelters and making preparations in the house during the last month, and finally on Tuesday we were able to bring home our new cat. We adopted him from the animal shelter in Ghent. Unfortunately, he had an infection and had to stay at the shelter for a few weeks to recover, but that gave us enough time to make sure we were ready to bring him home. It seems like it was worth the wait because he is proving to be a very sweet cat. I decided to introduce him on OppositeOcean because I’m sure he will be a source of inspiration in future funny animal-related blog posts.

A Belgian-American Thanksgiving

My first Belgian Thanksgiving turned out to be a lot more American than I had planned. I arrived home from my Dutch class to find an empty apartment. Christophe returned soon with a mischievous grin and a backpack full of secret Thanksgiving supplies. He tried to kick me out of the kitchen but my stubbornness prevailed and we made a nice Thanksgiving dinner together. I was, like usual, only in charge of the peeling, chopping, and boiling of water as it seems to work more successfully this way.
