•Tweedledum and Tweedledee Land In London

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE

Mom and dad flew into London on rails and walked 87 miles from the Eurostar into St. Pancras Station.  Then out the other side to the main exit.  Dad rushed on ahead of mom…cause she was walking like she was dragging a moose behind her.  Mom finally made it to the exit and guess who greeted her?  It was Princess Leah, and her mom and dad.  Our dad was there too.                                                              How exciting Shoko.  They all went for tea in  St. Pancras Station. I think mom was stunned as she didn’t seem to take many pictures.                                                                      Here is Princess Leah’s mom, Julie and her dad, Mike.  Her Royal Highness is trying to get at the Canada Goose Shoko and I stuck in mom’s suitcase for Leah.  Mom said she enjoyed a relaxing cuppa with Leah and her parents.  She could have stayed and enjoyed their company for several more hours but it was time to get to the hotel. Take a look at Princess Leah’s Blog and see more pictures of our meeting.

Now St. Pancras Station is an old castle like building.  It is beautiful beyond compare.  Any repairs to the old structure are kept in the same style.                                                    Mom and dad caught a taxi to their hotel…The TavistockIt wasn’t far but these two decided they didn’t need to struggle down the sidewalk with their suitcases.                                                            Our travellers woke in Normandy and now they were in London.  To say they were tired was an understatement.

The next day found mom and dad deciding to walk about their area around the Tavistock Hotel.                                                                               Mom and dad liked the quaint shops along the street.                                                                The Post Box was so shiny and new looking.  Where the ones in Prince George look like they had a fight with a woofie and lost.                                                                          MOL….mom is in her glory looking for different spices and concoctions than in Canada.

The next place to find was Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium.  A bit of a challenge for our wanderers.

I won’t show you all the areas they wandered in and out but  Chinatown and Coventry Gardens were two of the districts.

They found Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium just as dad was starting to say they had come the wrong way while he was pushing mom on her walker.  They both were so excited they forgot to take a picture.

Inside was a small cat heaven. There were cats sleeping…of course.  Cats watching the pigeons and greeter cats showing us around.                                                                       Shoko would be crazy over these stairs….dropping on me from above.                                                                                Look at these caves for the cats.  They look like they’re in the wild forests of Africa.  What a hoot. 

                                                                                          The birds outside caught these kitties attention while we sat and had High Tea.

A most satisfying visit to their first cat café.

Next installment…visiting Harrods Department Store.

    Oh boy!!!! A cat café…….AND Covent Garden? I’m glad they found time to visit Harrod’s. My Mom said she and Dad felt like they could have lived in there for months and nobody would have known because the place is SO BIG!

    This is all so exciting. Dad was in Bristol years ago and really loved England. That Cat Cafe is really the whiskers and we would all love to come and watch English food on the fly and check out those very nice caves. Cant wait to see what Mom and Dad do next. Yay for the trip!

      Dad says they were in that store for an hour while mom chose the different herbs from England she couldn’t get at home. Mom couldn’t make up her mind so dad decided she needed them all. She looked like a herbal expert when she came home.

      The caves for the cats and the stairs were awesome. The stairs for the young’un’s and the cat caves for the others.

        I guess he does. They have been married like forever. They can argue like nobody’s business. Mom says they’re passionate about what they think. Whatever…just keep it down, Kali and I are trying to sleep.

      The High Tea was delicious. with scones sporting cream, finger sandwiches and fancy desserts. It was yummy. Some greenies afterward would have been nice too.

    Shoko and Kali, it sounds like your pawrents I had great adventures! Thanks for sharing the link to Leah’s blog. I will have to check it out! The kitties at the cat emporium you mention have snazzy kitty cubbies! Did your pawrents get to pet the kitties there? My mom took a picture of kitties the other day in the window at a cat cafe she stumbled upon in Charleston, SC, but she didn’t go inside.

      Mom says the kitties were quite friendly and of course nosy. She did pet one. The other ones had more important things to do like watching birds.
      I didn’t know there was a cat café in Charleston….how wonderful

    I did comment on this when you published it…think my laptop is playing up and needs a little punch…
    Another great instalment! We have a kitty cafe here actually, although I haven’t been yet. Those stairs look brilliant! I bet it was lovely to meet another blogger friend in person too – looking forward to your next episode! 😺💕xxx

        Don’t know…lost somewhere in the ether… yes, when my previous cat was getting on, we had to leave strategically placed chairs and stools to help him up and down. He had arthritis, but he was such a lovely old gentleman 🙂 xxx

        Definitely carpet must be on them. All Kali’s steps are carpeted. Come to think of it, I don’t know where Bill is getting the carpet. Hope there isn’t a big hole in my carpet under the love seat. lol

        Lol…I’ve done that! Cut a careful square from under the sofa to patch a carpet – my mother was staying with me and dropped a hot iron on the carpet…she was lucky it wasn’t her foot! (I would perhaps check under the love seat..! 😸)
