Hugo Is Here!

So a little hippo arrived yesterday–Hugo Harmony the Traveling Hippo!  He had a little unexpected layover but he’s here and safe and very cute!  We’ll let him take over the blog for a few days to start off his travelogue.

Hi everyone!  I am starting my tour at Chez Cat, and they have been very gracious hosts.  When I arrived Connor came right over to greet me.

*sniff sniff* Hey it’s Hugo! And he brought the good ‘nip with him!

Their mama opened the box and out I popped with a bunch of presents for them!

“Hey there! I am so glad to meet you!”

The kitties gave me a sniffing over and then checked out the presents.  Their mama made a short movie to commemorate this event:

Since it was late in the day and I was a little tired, we ran down to a historic sausage place and got some supper.

Usinger’s! The best sausage in the world!

While we were waiting to be served, there were people in there with big coolers on wheels; these Milwaukeans take their sausage very seriously!  Anyway, we got some braunschwieger, some olive loaf, and had them with some pumpernickel bread and sour pickles for a nice little deli supper.

Doesn’t this look yummy?

Chez Cat mama has to work tomorrow, so I will be taking it easy, but Saturday night there’s talk of going out to dinner and then to the Pabst Theater!  I can’t wait!  I’ll report back tomorrow!  Hugo over and out!

    YAY! We are glad that Hugo made it there safely! And we hope that you like the host/hostess gifts he brought with! We think he is going to have a very good time while he visits – we wish we could have some tasty sausage – he is lucky!

    We posted about his arrival over at our place too – mom is going to be making a “Where’s Hugo” Page and will also be keeping a link to the blog he is at in our top gadgets so everyone can stop by to see what is up!

    This is the first we are hearing about Hugo and his travels. How fun is that! Looks like he is enjoying his stay in Milwaukee and Connor is having a blast with all the loot that came with him. Years ago Mom did something like with with a Kitty Angel and it was a lot of fun.

    How wonderful! Hugo is a very polite and generous guest to bring you all those wonderful toys and treats!

    Wow, Connor is certainly chomping at the bit, there. Lizzie is being much more polite. I think the House of Cats fur might be lots of fun for them to sniff. Imagine all the different kitties they could smell!

    You are certainly showing Hugo what Milwaukee is all about!
