My life with a Cat

I believe life is just so much happier with a cat or a pet. Having a fluffy friend to talk to and cuddle is some kind of comfort. Here is my and Ferry's story from our lives and travels...

My life with a cat

SINCE 2018

Let’s keep it straight – I am definitely a cat lover, always have been and always will be.

Maybe cause of my personality and freedom which I require, we both with Ferry click with each other as soulmates.

Don’t like to be bothered by too many people, like a peaceful and tidy home and enjoy each other’s company, some snuggles and kisses.

Being both very punctual but yet very easy-going • that’s US •

Ferry & Me

And as a professional cat influencer Ferry has its own Instagram profile, so if you would like to show some love to his majesty, do as you please and follow!

My life with a cat


I knew I want a cat and had planned it with exact details – how it will look like, it will be a boy – grey with white paws and tummy and his name will be Ferry!

Times passed by and I was living with my siblings in a small flat and I almost forgot about my dream, just till they moved out and I stayed in a flat by myself. It took me about a week to figure out NOW is the time to get my little boy, who can make me a company.

Scrolling through advertisements of pets I couldn’t find the right one, till I came across one of 4 kitten, all ginger and 1 just like a little mole with a white moustache!

That’s HIM! And after a few phone calls I was sitting on a train to the next city for my new little friend.

On the way I stopped at my auntie’s to get a cat carrier to bring him over. And was scolded – what an idea, which I will regret later, you will not be able to travel any more, it’s a big responsibility and bla bla bla …

All of those comments didn’t stop me and had a zero influence on my decision. Rather I was even more eager to show them all is possible.

And after couple of hours I was coming home with this ball of fluffiness snuggled in my scarf and just couldn’t get enough of this cuteness.

And that’s where it all begun …

“You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.”

― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince


I’m not gonna lie, there were times when I was thinking, oh it would be so much easier without a pet, specially, when I was travelling. But all these times just taught me – it is possible, you just have to make compromises and it’s not always comfortable.

It was a bit tricky compromising my free spirit, who was always ready to move to another country, packed my stuff and leave for another adventure, so I guess I became more stable and even more organise towards future.

It breaks my heart when I see people not looking after their pets, putting them in rescue centres or just leaving them on streets.

And it hurt me so much when he fell from the 3rd floor and broke his leg while I was working in Spain that I told myself, wherever I go, I have to find a way how he can come with me!

And so we did!

Travelling and living in Italy, taking our first over-night train and after 9 months moving back to Czech and then again to the UK!

It’s been 2 years already, and I think, Ferry is his life on a farm enjoying way too much!

According to one Australian study, cat owners do have better psychological health than people without pets. On questionnaires, they claim to feel more happy, more confident, and less nervous, and to sleep, focus, and face problems in their lives better.

Ferry on a farm

Ferry lived with me in a flat in Czech, in Italy in a villa with a big garden and at the end luckily on a farm. From all those places I think he is the most happy here on a farm. He sleeps most of the mornings and afternoons and stays all night outside, in sheds or fields and come back every morning with a prey to my door.

I was honored to get mice, a bunny, a dragonfly or a bat .. yuk.

Through a day I keep him locked in my house and take him for a walk in the evening and some photoshoots.

And him, waiting always to do his business outside, makes the life so much easier!


1. A cat with a question-mark-shaped tail is asking, “Want to play?”
2. According to Wilde, a slow blink is a “kitty kiss.” This movement shows contentment and trust.
3. Cats have a unique “vocabulary” with their owner — each cat has a different set of vocalizations, purrs and behaviours.
4. Cats have up to 100 different vocalizations — dogs only have 10.
5. Cats find it threatening when you make direct eye contact with them.
6. Cats mark you as their territory when they rub their faces and bodies against you, as they have scent glands in those areas.
7. Cats may yawn as a way to end a confrontation with another animal. Think of it as their “talk to the hand” gesture.
8. Hissing is defensive, not aggressive, says Wilde. “It’s an expression of fear, stress or discomfort of a threatened cat communicating ‘stay away,’” she says.
9. If cats are fighting, the cat that’s hissing is the more vulnerable one, says Wilde.
10. If your cat approaches you with a straight, almost vibrating tail, this means that she is extremely happy to see you.
11. Kneading — which some people refer to as “making biscuits” — is a sign of contentment and happiness. Cats knead their mothers when they are nursing to stimulate the let-down of milk.
12. When a cat flops over and exposes his belly, it’s not always an invitation for a belly rub. A cat does this when he’s relaxed and showing trust.
13. When cats hit you with retracted claws, they’re playing, not attacking.
14. When dogs wag their tails, they may be expressing happiness. But this isn’t the case for cats! When your cat wags her tail, it’s her way of warning you that you are getting on her last nerve.
15. When your cat sticks his butt in your face, he is doing so as a gesture of friendship.
16. Whiskers are also good indicators of a cat’s mood. When a cat is scared, he put his whiskers back. But when a cat is in hunting mode, he puts his whiskers forward.
17. Your cat drapes its tail over another cat, your dog, or you as a symbol of friendship.
