A whole weekend with friends

Instameets are awesome! After having fun with Richie & Keith and with Jaques & Jaqueline me had a whole weekend of Intstameet fun waiting for me in March. We had a Dutch meet-up with coffee and lunch on March 3 and on March 4 me met up with Snoopy and his lovely Tour de France Nijntje friend. So without further ado, let me tell you more about it!


Plushie Meet Up, March 3

O boy me was so excited! Me was about to meet a lot of Dutch friends! The meet up was organised by Oleg and Friends. We had said to see each other at Utrecht Central Station and then head out for coffee and later on some lunch. Me met the Mouse Trip mice, Teddy Tibbie Travels, Oleg and his friends ofcourse and Brix the Penguin. We went for coffee nearby the station and took over the table hihi. Sadly the mice triplets had to leave early and would no come to lunch with us. But at lunch we were joined by the cute little Jumi! We had a blast. The lunch was soooo nommy. O and me think the humans had fun too. Hihi.


Cuddling Snoopy, March 4

The next day me and our puppy Bassie went to meet Snoppy (Voyage of the Beagle) for a pancake lunch in the city. Bassie really was excited to meet another doggy friend. Especially Snoopy. He is a pup with an attitude (a fun one that is)! Snoopy at first was a little scared and overwhelmed by me hugeness, even our Bassie was huge compared to him and his lil nijntje friend. Snoopy is little and me was little afraid me would sit on him, so instead he sat on me head hihi. We had a lot of fun together. And our humans did too!


Me just love instameets! And you know what? There are more instameet stories me need to tell you! So… Bye bye for now! Me want cookie… Thinking about these lunch dates make me hungry…

About My Blog


Do you know, so many people think I’m a bear. When I’m out and about having my photo taken by my human pet, people say “oh, what a cute bear” and then I have to say thank you and politely explain that I’m a teddy cat, not a bear heehee. Lots of people think I’m a boy too, but I’m a girl pussycat. Anyway, I don’t mind. My pet always says if she got a pound for every time someone made those mistakes, we’d be millionaires by now hehe.

Why did you start your blog?
I started because I love writing, and my pet loves taking photos of me, so the two seemed to go together quite well. And we both love travelling, so we often go about together. We love sharing our stories with others and hope we can inspire them to go this way and that way too. There’s always so much to see, even on your doorstep, and we love hearing from people about where they’ve been to so we can plan our next holiday. We’ve got so many places on our wish list, I think it will take all of my 9 lives to finish.

When did you start your blog?
I actually started writing my travel adventures about 199 years ago, but I only got my pet to do the blog in 2016 and started by putting up some of my older stories.

What is your blog about?
It’s about nice places you can go to, and nice things to eat, and what the nice plushie community on Instagram have been up to.

What do you prefer to write about on your blog?
Everything actually. I’m quite an easy going cat.

What is your favourite blog article you wrote?
That’s really tough, but maybe my very first post about seeing the northern lights in Iceland. That was a great experience and really got us hooked on writing. We also love doing Pets’ Mews - a mewspaper for instagramming plushies, pets, and their people. We always find the community so inspiring and hilarious. We love being a part of it!

What is, in your opinion, the blogger-magic?
Hmmm, maybe it’s finding connections with people. Showing them a little of our favourite things, and hoping they will find them useful and interesting too.

Tell us why we all must read your blog.
We really think plushies build bridges. From all over the world, we can help our human pets come together through ideas, awareness, culture and by giving them a lovely helping paw. We hope our stories and the Pets’ Mewspaper help sprinkle a bit of plushie magic dust around the world to make it a lovelier one.
