Kittens Do Not Like Fireworks!

Happy New Year friends! Last night was a long, horrible night of fireworks so we’re glad to be safely out the other side! We are not sure of the firework situation in other countries but here in Holland they set them off from 4pm until about 5am!

We most definitely do not like fireworks. We refused to eat all night and managed to squish ourselves into the tiny, safe space under the kitchen units.


The humans spent a long time trying to persuade us to come out but even when they’d removed all the wooden front we wouldn’t budge.

Eventually they left us in our safe space and we finally came out around 5:30am this morning. We made it – happy new year! πŸ™‚ 

Last year was an excellent year so we’re hoping this year will be just as good! Here are some of our favourite moments from 2015…

Both of us fitting into one of boy-man’s hands:


Being cute enough to get away with anything:



 Helping to find mysteriously broken items:


Helping to wash up:


Being hand fed chicken: 

Redesigning girl-woman’s clothing:


Exploring the fridge:


Helping girl-woman with her recovery:

More sleeping:


Helping with the cooking:


 Helping with the tasting:


And of course, all the Christmas fun!



2015 you’ve been truly great! We can’t wait to see what 2016 brings! Happy new year to you all πŸ™‚ 

          Love Bella and Esme xxx

  1. I hate fireworks too! Fortunately, we’re far enough away from the big city that we don’t HEAR the “BIG” fireworks and only a few neighbors did them here – we slept right through it all. Happy New Year girls – it’s been fun watching you “grow up” and we’re looking forward to lots more adventures for you in the new year!!

    Hugs, Sammy

  2. Happy New Year! I know those fireworks can be super scary. They don’t really do fireworks here in the U.S on New Year’s, just on Independence Day. Glad you made it through to the other side of 2015!

  3. Happy New Year to you all! I have loved following your adventures this last year! Purdey doesn’t like fireworks either – they started at midnight over here, not the gentle fizzing or popping kind – more of the Civil War re-enactment kind. She was freaked out so we had a rather sleepless night too!

  4. We agree….4 paws down for fireworks. It’s very cold here so peeps don’t stand still for long outside. It was -25C New Year’s Eve and around 9:30pm there were a few bangs and a few fizzles…..we have over 2 feet of snow. That was it for the night. So, Kali and I are very proud of ourselves for not moving off the bed and going back to sleep after the last fizzle was gone.

    I guess 2015 was a great year for you 2… were born and have learned a heap of things since then.

    Happy New Year to our dear friends, Bella and Esme.

    Kitty kisses,

    Kali and Shoko
