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!

Aye, There’s The Rub…

Oh, NO.  Now they are all going to want to pick me UP!  What happened to my snooze? It’s hard being me....

Nice Place To Visit But…

Hey, where are you guys going?  Am I coming, too? Well, we took a little jaunt (mine, virtual) through the Doria Pamphilj Gallery this morning with my live-in guest handler (haha), and they all three came back looking like zombies. WHAT A PLACE TO HANG YOUR HAT!  Er…capello. The entrance is so lovely, with a courtyard and orange trees and a fountain into which pigeons fly to take a little bath in this...

Well-Bread

ARGGGG…why won’t they ever just stay here in the house and watch me SLEEP? Well, there they went again, on some pretext of visiting a bakery in a little town nearby, Genzano, where they had spent the night learning how to make Genzano’s famous loaves.  The old baker (in shorts and smoking his cigarette –this was 20 years ago–from which the ash dropped into the dough!) was long gone, but his granddaughter was there, lively...

Take A Look

Please take a look: Messymimismeanderings left a comment on my July 19th blog, and if you can, I’d like you to try and read Mimi’s blog, because it is from Baton Rouge and there is first-hand information about what happened there.  And very personal and touching. So useless these terrible losses of life, black and white and brown. So useless to think that hatred can be stopped with more hatred. And unfortunately, so useless to...

Kitty Kicks

Photos just for fun.  We need that right now.  But, uh, oh, it looks like mama’s coming after me to exercise! Is she nuts? Mama says meditate before exercise. Trying to outstare the couch while meditating. Warm up a little by throwing yourself around a bit. Okay, let’s start with legs: Does this really work for the inner thighs? And how many reps do I have to do? PLEASE, can I quit now? I think...

Sunday Scenes And Sadness

Rome’s security is enhanced by gladiators following a police vehicle.  Mama and papa were out this morning just trying to get their hearts and souls back to normal by looking around them, by seeing beautiful monuments, by having a little bite of mid-morning mozzarella and a café so thick and creamy that one’s body has a hard time staying down too long.  But of course, the café wears off… Still, it was a lovely, sunny...

Saturday’s Roam in Rome

Mama loves this trumpeter blowing his horn of hope.  I hope it reaches to Nice. A lovely old-fashioned barber.  I hope he doesn’t want to give ME a trim! Fresh porcini for tagliatelle (home-made pasta in this little trattoria called Memmo). And this charming (and famous, we found out) woodcrafter just up the street from the trattoria.  There were photos of him with Julia Roberts and many other stars and he asked mama and...

Nautical Nostalgia

What I saw outside of our porthole! I’m not feeling much like a light story of a moment in my kitty life.  I’m not feeling like writing at all, what with the horrors in our beloved Nice, a kind and beautiful city of many different kinds of people who appeared to live peacefully together.  No longer.  But I’ll keep writing to remain sane. ***** Well, I realize that I never really showed you the pics...

No Photos Today

Oh, Nice, beautiful, vibrant Mediterranean city, where many different people appeared to live peacefully together, where hidden in your depths was insanity that cannot be described in words.  Suicide bombers. But he wasn’t. The man killed a woman in a head scarf first.  Then the 80+ others. Mentally unstable is a mild description.  He was a husband and father.  But he beat his wife.  He never spoke to neighbors. It is even more disturbing that...
