A Little Nice Speech

TBT:  The Cat Blogosphere is international.  Sometimes "we" get comments in languages "we" (sadly) do not understand, sometimes we get translated comments into English that take some thought to understand.  Any failure of understanding is on my part, of course.  More people can read and speak "English" than I can other languages. 

So I thought this a good time to say thank you to them...

Dankie -Afrikaans
Ke a leboga -Sepedi
Danke - Dutch
ngyabonga -zulu
Merci -french
grazi- Italian
Spasibo- Russian
doumo arigatou- Japanese

There were more, but it was either 10 languages or 1,000 and I thought 1,000 too many to post.  I do apologize for those not mentioned, but trust us here at Mark's Mews that we appreciate the comments and do our best to see the care in your words...


  1. "Danke" is German. In Dutch we say "Bedankt" ;-)
    Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Kiitos teillekin! And thank you to you too, in Finnish.

  3. Xie Xie! That's thank you in Mandarin (one of the Chinese dialect). :)

  4. We say thank you this way: PURRRRRRR

  5. We thank everyone who takes the time to visit us too. You have just made mum think that maybe we should put the google translate widget on our blog. Mr Google often makes funny mistakes in translation, but it still may help our non English speaking visitors.

  6. That was very nice and so past due from all of us. We truly appreciate our international visitors too and we are so glad you said it so well!

  7. Toda raba to you for this post (that's how we say it!). I like Flynn's idea of the translate widget!

  8. In Hebrew: To da

  9. Y'know, we never thought about the fact that peeps that don't read English visit us. Maybe we should put a Google translator on our blog.

    MOL @ Sparkle's comment.

  10. That is lovely! We may have to look into that translator too!!!
    of course the universal language is the the purr!!

  11. It is fun to have furiends all over the place. We learn so much.

  12. What a wonderful idea. We visit some non-English blogs but don't comment there. So it stands to reason that there are probably non-English speakers who might visit us, too. We love how cat blogging has let us meet cat lovers all around the world, and we appreciate our international visitors, too. Thank you for making us stop and think about it!

  13. Kob kun krab = Thank you in Thai ( for Mancat )
    Kob kun kaa = Thank you in Thai ( for Girlcat )

    But I prefer...PUUUUUUURRRRR like everyone here : )
    Have a great Sunday

  14. Spasibo to Ceiling Cat that I didn't make Iza-Lambie mad at me last night. Whew! Dodged *that* bullet!

  15. This comment has been removed by the author.

  16. We see someone's already added "Toda Rabba" in Hebrew - but We would like to say it anyway!

    Trixie & Caspurr

  17. You are so right and I also like to thank international friends for visiting. Like Flynn said maybe time to put a google translate widget on my blog. Hugs GJ xx


We're always glad to hear from our friends...
