The famous Formular 1 car racing takes place in Francorchamps/Spa, this week-end. I am not very interested in car racings but it is Mr. Gattino's favourite sport and that, nobody can ignore !

Today and tomorrow he will be scotched to the TV screen and shout his comments to the cats, as nobody else would listen to him.

Especially Arthur is a very good listener as you can see.

A few years ago he even went there himself together with dear son, but they came back both very disappointed. They only had seen flying cars where you hardly could recognize the color, supported noises near the sound barrier, and all that on a very uncomfortable seat. Since then, he prefers his sofa of course. After the race, the phone calls start because cats unfortunately don't have an own opinion, they always agree.

Entrance prices seem to me very expensive, but of course it is not my hobby ( prices)
But the city Spa where Francorchamps is located, is a lovely town in the Ardennes.

Of course Ferrari has to win, the cats cross their paws already !

I'm not enthusiastic when it comes to car racing and soccer. I too can't make out the colour of the racing cars nor differentiate the famous drivers from one another. :P

I would rather spend the money on spa..... and I could probably go twice. hehe...

the husband of my sister is a fan of these races! But pierre and me we aren't. But but I would like to see one day the race of Monaco. Monaco is so special that the race is in the air! I am sure Arthur would love it!Nous avons un temps bizaroïde! Orageux et chaud! Encore aujourd'hui il y a une petite brise mais hier on se serait cru dans la jungle. On était tout moite!!!! Les pauvres gosses avaient les cheveux mouillés dans la classe malgré le ventilo!

Not the biggest car racing fan, but we have a big raceway near us.
Where is the picture of Arthur? Nothing down loaded. You know my secret love affair with Arthur!

I hadn't heard about this. I'm an American living in Gent. Usually my boyfriend (he's Flemish) tells me about stuff like this. But he's not into Formula 1...neither am I though. lol

That's a great shot of your cat! They're so photogenic, aren't they?

Oh my gosh, I am totally in *love* with your cat! What an adorable shot. I already have three cats, and one is all black, but I think a pure white cat would give some balance. Really, super cute shot!

Arthur is a very handsome man I must say, and I am sure he enjoys sitting with his father and watching the races (though he is probably dreamining of mice and open fields! hehe)

The first shot is my favorite.
