I am a kitty that has something to say about almost every subject imaginable--sometimes with humor, sometimes not, but always surprising. At least, it surprises me!

Makeover

No, not mine!  I’m still the same old Loulou, but wait ’til you see this little darling and his aspirations to greatness. Now, these guys (and a gal), below, don’t seem to have the same inclination to change their lives.  Maybe because they all live together and are pretty happy with that.  The other little guy seemed sort of alone until he found his true vacation…er…make that, vocation. Now, for me, vacation is just...

Slip Up

Distraught Kitty Well, I had to say it.  And I really do not like to bring politics into my kitty life, but mama, papa and I are more than worried, for ourselves and for you, too. Mr. Trump has elected as a labor leader a man who is strongly against raising the minimum wage, which Obama tried to do and failed due to opposition.  Mr Puzder, chief exec of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s employees...

AHHHH Choo!

AHHHH Choo!

Mama, run…I’m about to sneeze. Mama said, “Don’t be silly, Loulou”, kitties don’t often sneeze and besides that, it was I who just sneezed, not you. Well, okay, maybe I was just doing my impersonation of someone about to sneeze. One guess who that is?  Yep, mama, poverina. Started sneezing like crazy and dripping and cursing the winter.  But mama doesn’t get things often and I am pretty sure this one will be short-lived–mama gargled...

Writer’s Block

Yes, I am taking it easy on the bed. Because NO ONE has arrived to OPEN my IPAD so that I can WORK! Pu-leeze get in here and help, mama. Well, that didn’t work. UH, OH. It worked.  That means I have to WRITE!!! I’m outta here…I didn’t have that much energy anyway after only a 12-hour nap. Let’s hope the Muse decides to visit tomorrow…Hey, Muse, OVER HERE!...

Santa Claws?

Santa Claws?

Well, here I am doing my airplane impersonation.  Haha, just kidding.  I’m actually listening for sleigh bells (whatever they are), which, I am told, should be arriving in the not too distant future.  It seems there could be strange creatures attached also with very funny names, Donner, Blitzen, things like that, but frankly, I am just not in the holiday mood yet.  Mama went out to buy envelopes today, which appear to be what all...

Duck And Cover

Haha, mama is making a funny pun again.  But that’s because THIS is happening in our kitchen: Uh, oh, we do not wish to offend vegetarians or pet owners but these are duck legs.  And mama knows a duck farm owner who adores her ducks but still makes them into the above… Confit of duck. Resting in salt, pepper, a bit of clove and fresh thyme overnight.  Make that lemon thyme.  Mama bought thyme quickly...

Tree’s a Crowd

A Christmas angel…stepgrandkid posing with wings. Well, here’s mama’s decorating (above).  Not much room underneath for MY presents, right?  But it does save energy, haha. But she loves this little pathetic tree and so we turn it on and hope one day she may actually give in to a TREE, as in CHRISTMAS TREE, with BRANCHES and in a POT, living and happy to contribute to the holiday season. But…so far, this is it. Mama...

Decking the Halls

OH, NO.  I haven’t even made a shopping list for Christmas!!!  Oh, well, I hope THEY have… Well, boy, that Jeanie is getting famous.  The comments on her deco were really lovely, thank you, and now mama and I are staring at our (very, very small) box of trinkets for our (non-existent, so far, maybe still growing somewhere) little tree, which WILL arrive one day when mama finds it.  This is usually around, oh, December...

Raucous Rescuers

I’m giggling, but I also had kitty tears over some of the video. Well, dear readers, here it is.  The video of a couple of lovely people who rescue animals (found on the New York Times site by Mya’s mama). I will tell you that it is 14 minutes long, but if you have ever rescued any animal, you will understand this wacky couple and will see, in the end, how amazing their life with...

ART-Deco-Ration

WOW–are WE going to do that, mama? No, Loulou, WE are not! Well decorations, that is.  Mama happens to have an aunt who happens to have a daughter who makes Martha Stewart look like a sloth. I mean that.  This Jeanie has more creativity in her left ear than anyone mama has ever known.  The list of her achievements is waaaaaay too long to put in this short blog, but you might like a glimpse...
