You are a genious, Nelina, for sure! Now let's see...

Nr 1 is a bit difficult - Mommy is rather paranoid in that respect - she saves her text just about after each sentence... But I have noticed an effect on her mindset when I jump on her drumming-machine (=keyboard) and do a little writing myself.

Nr 2 - darned - she keeps her canvases on easels. She says she learned it the hard way when one of our predecessors (Bertha, a short-haired Somali) had visited the sandbox, gone beserk as is usual and started running like a mad cat. Mommy was just painting something with acrylics, the canvas flat on a table. Bertha levitated out of thin air and landed on her palette. In the middle of a pool of bright blue acrylic paint. Then Bertha made the painting Mommy was working on a bit more artistic by leaving bright blue pawprints on it. (Acrylics dry almost instantly, you know... Mommy was not happy, but what can you say - there is no arguing over matters of artistic taste.)

After which Bertha disappeared somewhere. The blue pawprints never disappeared from the floor I am told. Interestingly there were some on the walls too. She must have eaten chili.

Nr 3- now that is hard... it is in the SCC of Somalis... (read the SunSpots Maximization and you will know what I mean)

Nr 4 - I have tried - but the SCC of Somalis immediately takes hold and I end up washing them instead.

This seems to be a tough nut to crack!

In all purrrrfection,

Rolli :)

Ways to make mummy angry
by: Nelina (again)

1. Press the button escape when she writes the Egyptology essay (tip: make sure she hasn't saved anything)
2. Exercise these wonderful little nails on a canvas, preferably with drawings on it!
3. Stop being sweet (no purring, no caressing, no cleaning either)
4. Attack the other cats of the house (if I remember correctly there are two more!)

Do these for a week (no breaks) and you'll be in Athens in no time!

Nelina, my greatest fan!
by: Rolli

How nice to hear from you, Nelina! As you know I have a fan club (Mommy says she'll need to start giving out queue numbers soon). But I had a talk with her, pointing out that you of all my admirers are the most active in your fan-club activity. (Wonderful to meet people who understand that Somalis are the most beautiful of cats! You have obviously been brought up properly! Give my best to your mother for a job well done!)

Mommy was wondering if I might misbehave, should I travel to warmer climates with lots of sun spots and people who like cats (and understand the necessity of proper feeding a cat once every hour).

Misbehave? What ever does she mean... I could sit in a sun spot, greet all my fan club members and wash them all (as you know I like to clean everyone, cats and humans alike).

Well, we need to keep on convincing her - she seems to like to keep me here and I would not want to hurt her feelings.

Better go disturb that keyboard drumming of hers again... What is it with you people and those computers...?

With my purrfect regards,

Rolli :)

Leena's Books


This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibition on his world tour of ten cities from March 2018 onwards

Tutankhamun: In My Own Hieroglyphs tells the story, for older children, of the life and afterlife of the famous young pharaoh in his own words. Tutankhamun tells us about the trouble he got into as a child in Akhenaten's palace in the new city of Akhetaten, and how he became a boy pharaoh. As we learn, his life changed a lot when he died as a teenager, and long years of boredom started in his tomb with only his pet monkey Fingers and his treasure for company. He did meet some of the Egyptian gods, of course, and had fun scaring off tomb robbers, but it was mostly rather dull. Then one day, some new and strange people, including a Mr. Howard Carter, arrived and began to take all the treasures out of his royal tomb. Fortunately, through the eyes of his beautiful golden mask, Tutankhamun, could have fun again traveling around the world

Mr Mummific

An ancient friend of mine, Mr Mummific dictated a book about how he became a mummy - and I was his scribe and artist. The book is available at and

On my other website he continues his stories about life in ancient Egypt.

Another hilarious adventure for children with Mr Mummific, the mummy with attitude. He now tells the story of his mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures as he leaves his tomb through the False Door to embark on the complicated and dangerous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions.
