Yes, Simon’s Cat is back, and this video is hot off the presses!
Like all Simon’s Cat, this is totally awesome, and so true (my cat always lies on my computer at the most inopportune time, or decides to walk on it, or…).
Anyway, enjoy the video, and have a great weekend.
Oh! And don’t forget to mosey on over to our Royal Treatment shop. The seasons are changing and like us, dogs get dry skin, flaky skin, itchy skin, and they get frizzy fur, clumpy fur, dry fur. Luckily, there’s something in our shop to make your dog completely silky, soft and moisturised -and I shouldn’t be saying this, but new products will be hitting the shelves…soon!

All good things must come to an end, and after three months on the lam, Yvonne, Barvaria’s most famous cow, has been caught.
I’m sure you remember the hubbub about Yvonne: she is the cow who sensed she was being fattened for the slaughter and escaped, living in a Bavarian forest with police and hunters and animal rights activists hot on her tail (well, that should be luke-warm on her tail, seeing as no one was able to find her for three whole months). Activists tried to lure her out with the George Clooney of bulls (to no avail – Yvonne wasn’t about to fall for that malarky), then they found her long-lost-long-thought-to-be-dead-but-is-still-alive son, Friesi, and her sister Waltraud was dragged into the mix, all to lure her out. Yvonne had songs written about her and her own Facebook page, and the whole world (well, some of us, anyway) cheering her on in her freedom loving ways.
But now a farmer found her hanging about his farm, trying to make friends with his cows. He and his daughter managed to get the scared cow into their paddock, and called up the authorities (and claimed the 10,000 euro reward).
Yvonne may be sad at being back in captivity, but she doesn’t have to worry about being turned into dinner as she is in the possession of Gut Aiderbichi, the animal rights group. She now has her very own pasture and the company of her sister and son. While this freedom-loving cow may still long for the absolute freedom of being able to do her own thing and go wherever she wants to go, we think that as an alternative, this is pretty good.
