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!

Choking Up

Do I smell garlic sizzling?  Oh, boy, mama’s making artichokes because around here the season is beginning and there are lovely little greeny-purple ones, tender as cooked carrots and sooo good dipped in lemon butter.  Actually she’s cutting them up to sauté them in olive oil to eat tonight with turkey breasts alla Milanese (sautéed in flour, salt and pepper until brown, then sprinkled with lemon and a bit of parmesan before serving) and whatever...

Unconditional Love

Well, that’s what you all are with your furry friends, no?  You don’t judge, you don’t have expectations (well, maybe a few, but they fall by the wayside easily), you don’t insist, you don’t push us around (in fact, it’s quite the other way, right?), you just walk by us at any given moment and you just can’t keep yourself from giving us a chin rub or an ear rub or, in my case, a...

Hey, you want to see some lovely photos of this little burg…er…ville, now that the sun is actually making its debut for the first time in WEEKS? Here is our neighbor’s incredible garden entry, which he has dedicated to the four (er…now three…) donkeys that graze with the mule on his parking lot before the summer crowd appears. Yes, Suz, Loulou is talking about US, the cute little darling-fuzzy-bodied-sweet-lipped- velvet-nosed donks! But it...

Zouzie My New Beautiful Friend

Well, this is a bit touchy, because that is not ME in the photo, as you can plainly see, and that kitty is only five generations away from a leopard and when she sits on her chair (minus the pillow) her papa cannot find her and she is the LOOOONNNNGEST kitty mama has ever seen, and she feels like sable. So what am I to do with that? I think we should meet, actually.  We...

Self Flagellation

Oh, woe, why can’t we organize better? Oh, I’ll bet there are some of you out there who are indulging in or did in the past the fine art of berating yourself for not doing something, either not doing it at all or not doing it well enough–a chore, a clean-up, an organizing of files, a sweeping of the leaves, a throw-out of the old stuff in a closet that collects old stuff–you know what...

Mama, I heard those drips but I forgot to tell you.  Besides, you were sleeping and we don’t want to mess with THAT, do we? Oh, woe is we.  Mama’s office had a little river running out of it this morning from a leak in her skylight.  Yes, the very same skylight on which the lovely rain was tapping all day and all night and mama and papa were saying “Isn’t it lovely to have...

Hearts On My Sleeves

This is my Valentine rub from papa.  And below, mama’s Valentine breadstick for him. Well, it’s Valentine’s Day, and I entered a contest on a lovely blog to write a love letter and did not win but was honourably mentioned and here it is.  The winning letter was WONDERFUL  on the noir kitty blog.  Such a sweet contest.  I’m thinking about writing more love letters on any day of the year, just for the fun...

Home Stretch

Oh, don’t you just love it when you can stretch and just let all your cares and worries disappear and your body feels so, so good and your claws separate with pleasure and your tongue gets stuck between your teeth and you just feel…well…STRETCHED? I stretch on the rug. I stretch on the bed. I stretch in the sun (nip helps). I stretch on the bed again. Sometimes I yawn, I’m so relaxed. But I...

Piggly Wiggly

Awww…is this cute or what?  I mean the one below. Well, as you may or may not know, mama is nuts for pigs.  She even thought about having one of those little Vietnamese piggies, but two anthros live here, if you get my drift.  Plus a KITTY!!  Oh, yeah, sure, sure, it would have been a playmate for me, but take a look at THIS and see what you think about pig possession. Mya’s mama...
