Welcome to Maunzi's Site
Hello! You've just found my Homepage. The family I live with works a lot with the computer and the Internet. Everyone has had a Homepage excxept me (and the budgie) until now. That's why I thought, people who read about the other members of the family on the Internet should read about me as well because I am an important part of the family.
So I asked Tanja to help me creating my own homepage. And here it is! That's me
My name is Maunzi and I am a cat. I live in germany together with the family Schlemm. I am eight years and a half old. My fur is brown with beautyful black stripes and points. My eyes are something between yellow and orange.
I really like sleeping, being petted, playing, sitting in the window and watching birds, having a quiet place and watching the other familymembers, and much more.

me sitting in the window
I love sitting in Tanja's window and watching the cars and trams on the street.

How I came to my family
I can't really remember my childhood. But I still know it was not very good. My mother was a cat who lived on the street and did not have a family. Even as little kitty I had a lot of fleas. When I was only a few weeks old I fell in a hole at a building site. It was terrible down there. But I was lucky. Workers found me there a little later. They brought me to a woman who took care of some homeless cats. She called me Floh (german, means flea) because of my many fleas.

There I met another kitty and a very nice older cat. We often played together. The dark kitty is me.

When I was a few months old I didn't have any fleas anymore. One day a man (as I know now: Tanja's dad) came and took me and the other kitty (ok we weren't really kitties anymore) and brought us to his home. The child (Tanja, 7 years old) had wished a cat for so long. We both stayed there for a while, then the family chose one: me. And here I am, a member of this great family.

There are a lot of places in our flat I really love. I want to show you a few of them now.

me lying on the model trains

Two or three weeks befor christmas, Tanja and Hermann get the electrical model trains out. I love sleeping there and I love catching metalmice.

me lying on the couch next to Annette

In the night I always sleep there. If I already lie there and someone's coming we use it together.

me siting behind the clothes-line

I like sitting in the bathroom on one of the smaller cupboards behind the clothes. I can hardly be seen but I see everything.

me on the carpet

Here you see me on a carpet in a room upstairs. I like this place because here it's always warm.

me lying in a cardbox

I loved that cardbox on the cupboard. Unfortunately the family moved the cupboard and I don't have that great place anymore.

me between the files
This place is in Hermann's office between the files. I often hide behind them, when strange people come.

Expeditions through the flat
I often walk through the complet flat. I check if everything is ok, I always look for new places to sleep, to look out of the window and I am very curious. If there is something new, I inspect it exactly.

me inspecting Tanja's room

In Tanja's room there are always interesting things to see and smell.

Snuggling to humans
When I was new in the family I didn't really trust anyone, especially Tanja. I did not like to be on somebody's arms (especially Tanja's arms because she didn't know how to take me right) and when sombody was passing me I always stepped back a little bit.
But now I am older and calmer. I don't run away if there is somebody walking next to me and I love being in someone's arms.

I love lying next to Tanja and being petted.

A few more pictures

Hmmm... I like cream

Here I am lying in front of Annette's computer

Here I am trying to unpack my present. I didn't get it, but Tanja was so kind and opened it for me
