The Weekly Hufflepuff #48

*really losing inspiration for intro’s for these posts send help* OH I CHANGED MY LAYOUT A BIT I CAN TALK ABOUT THAT. So yeah I created a new header as I was getting a bit tired of the old one and wanted more colour. I also created my own social media icons which was a pain but I like the result so it’s worth it. I also changed my ‘meet the blogger’ thingie as I was getting tired of my old picture. Also this one fits the blog’s name better haha

I finished The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan and well… I’m a bit disappointed? I absolutely loved the first one, but this one? I dunno I nee dto gather my thoughts so I can write a review, right now I’m not sure yet how I feel.

I finished my second year this Tuesday which is crazy. I’ll be a thirdyear already this September?? What?? BUT ALSO SUMMER VACATION. Boy do I need it. Looking back this term was pretty fun, it just wasn’t fun that my friend and I had to redo an assignment from last term. BUT WE PASSED THIS TIME. I passed all my classes from this year so naturally I’m happy.

To celebrate the end of the year my friend and I went to cat cafe Kopjes, which was fun though the cats weren’t really in the mood to be petted or play. I think it was a bit too hot for them haha. Most of them were up high sleeping. We only got to pet two cats which made us really sad haha.

This cutie was sleeping until I decided that I needed to pet it. I still feel super guilty for waking it (that second picture is how it looked at me when I softly touched it). My heart guys, I feel so bad (it let us pet it though it was sooo soft

I’m gonna move there and live among the kitties btw

ALSO WHO ELSE WATCHED DOCTOR WHO LAST NIGHT AND IS BITTER I SWEAR THEY BETTER FIX THIS NEXT WEEK

Since my last wrap up I posted:

I haven’t read any blogposts this week (or the previous weeks) so I have nothing to share for the ‘elsewhere on the internet’ part. Hopefully next week!

And that’s a wrap! What have you guys been up to? Any posts (written by you or others) you think I HAVE to read? What have you been reading? Let me know in the comments!

Blogsterdam: KITTY EDITION 2.0

Blogsterdam is supposed to be a monthly thing but alas, the blogger behind this blog is very forgetful. Anyway, Blogsterdam is a blogging series in which this forgetful blogger talks about her hometown Amsterdam, as the city is so much more than drugs, cheese and the Red Light District.

Yes it’s true, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. It’s truly time for another Blogsterdam! KITTY EDITION (if your wondering why it’s 2.0, check out my post on the Cat Boat!). I mentioned going to a cat cafe last month, and I finally got around to writing about it.

The cat cafe is called ‘Kopjes’, which is both the Dutch word for ‘cups’ and a cat rubbing its head against you (I couldn’t find a translation for this word). When you walk in you get to the register where you need to wash your hands and can buy some cat merchandise.

Behind the register you go through the door to the cafe area where the cats live. The cafe is very cozy and full with cat related stuff. Like the menu has a cat on it of course

Of course I don’t remember everything that was on the menu, but I’d really recommend the red velvet cake.

Basically, if you like foods and cats this is the place for you. Now, time for what I’m sure you’re all waiting for: CAT PICTURES

Meet the cats (unfortunately you can’t really read their names in the picture sorry about that)

Look at that cheeky leg

Story time: I was petting the first cat, but all of a sudden it moved like it was going to bite me. So I took the hint and left it alone. I sat back down in my chair next to my friend and all of a sudden the cat charged me. I thought it was going to attack me (we both did), then it jumped on my lap, jumped to my friend’s lap and sat down. IT WAS SO RUDE. I WAS GIVING YOU LOVE AND ATTENTION EARLIER WHY DID YOU CHOOSE HER.

Blogsterdam: The Cat Boat

Blogsterdam is supposed to be a monthly thing but alas, the blogger behind this blog is very forgetful. The fact that the last Blogsterdam was in January and it’s now the end of April is proof of this. But hey, it’s the end of April, which means she almost missed April as well, but she didn’t! Anyway, Blogsterdam is a blogging series in which this forgetful blogger talks about her hometown Amsterdam, as the city is so much more than drugs, cheese and the Red Light District.

Last month I went to visit the ‘Poezenboot’, which translates to the Cats Boat. I had never heard of it, but it’s been in Amsterdam for many years now, so I find it weird that I only found out about it last month! I went to make a radio item and since I was focused on that I forgot to take a picture of the outside. This picture is from their website:

I first worried that the cats may not have a lot of space, but when I got inside that thankfully wasn’t the case. The cats have plenty of space and can walk outside as well (I don’t know if you can see it in the picture, but there’s gauze so the cats can’t fall off the boat). There are also plenty of toys and scratching posts inside.

While it’s an animal shelter, you can walk inside to take a look and play with the cats as well. When I went there the cats weren’t really in the mood to be petted or played with though. I only petted one cat. Speaking of which, there are certain cats you’re not allowed to pet because they can attack you, but there are pictures of those cats on the walls. Entrance is free, but if you can do donate! Or buy buttons or a hoodie (I’m not being paid to say all this I just love cats)

Now time for some adorableness!
