Well, mama and papa have watched a lot of cds of Oscar-nominated films, because papa gets them each year in order to vote (he was a screenwriter/producer years ago), and so I have to sit through six or seven movies, whether I like it or not, when I would much prefer to watch soccer and all those cute anthros running around playing with their...

Hedging Your Bets

Hedging Your Bets

Night-blooming jasmine, needing a trim… Well, today I was watching our nice man who helps in the garden as he was trimming mama’s and papa’s hedge that had grown over onto the bad neighbor’s property and about which the neighbor had asked, “Could you trim your hedge because it is way over on my side and needs a haircut”,...

My mewsing pad. Okay, okay, I succumbed. I used one of those words that so many out there are so good at, like Dezi, for example, and I can hardly think up one, much less create a language of them! It is tempting, however, to find words in English that are kitty-related. Still, it seemed appropriate that I use that word since I seem to be pondering many...

Mama’s calling me to write something and today I just feel lazy.  And confused  It’s not that I have only air in my little kitty brain right now, but that I’m simply overwhelmed with the politics under discussion and choices to be made in our country come November. I have to ask the question:  will things change?  Because it is really the...

  Hey, is that a tiny yellow jonquil I see out there  popping out its little head in mama’s garden? Yes, it is.  I thought they were called daffodils and I thought they were much bigger than THIS! But that’s all that’s out there, believe me.  And I’m not sure this little creature is going to last through the night. But about...

Portrait of computer that is OUT TO LUNCH! (Now back.) Well, you are probably NOT wondering where I was, but in case anyone out there was wondering, I was snoozing and waiting and snoozing and waiting and eating and snoozing and waiting again for papa to clean my computer, which was on the blink.  I would write a word and it would take a few seconds to get...

I’m too teary to write more than this today.  A wonderfully moving story of a very special kitty and his family. I am so, so happy for this kitty.  A friend of ours (mama of that doggy, Mya, who tried to kiss me, you know the one) sent mama this lovely story about a missing kitty finding his family after a long, long time after the family fled Iraq. ...

The dear Ann Adamus sent this and so it’s posted today on my blog for others to see. I’m having middle of the winter doldrums, I think.  The weather is sunny and bright, if cold, the winds have abated, the lemon tree is heavy with lovely bright yellow jewels, the stock pot is simmering with carrots and celery and the duck carcass that came from...

Who wants croissant anyway? Well, sometimes when you make a mistake about what time you’re supposed to be somewhere and you start to fret and tear your fur and wish you had checked your calendar and were not wasting so much time because your appointment is later than you thought and so you have to kill an hour or so before you can go, you know when...

For Sarah Ann Ricca of Mona, Prissy, Sammie Jean and Angel Weenie Well, we don’t know this sweet Sarah but we have heard from so many how lovely she is and how giving and generous with all of us, you, know, f0ur-footed creatures (more or less) and also how she is the same for even those two-footed anthros we call our personal staff, family members,...

Still Life With Kitty I that  means that “home again, home again” comes before the rest of the title, and so we are.  Home again, I mean. But the truth is, I’m just too disoriented to write much today, and I want to assure you that I shall be back tomorrow with winsome words for the world of wastrels. Actually, that means absolutely...

Well, I know from Ruskus the Eskie’s blog that Thursday is to be a thoughtless kind of day but it’s hard to not have thoughts when one is thinking, right? So here I am trying not to think. Let’s hope I succeed.  But if you are without thoughts, visit Ruskus the Eskie’s site and put your mind at ease!      ...

Breadsticks at a local bakery on rue Blacas Well, mama thinks you CAN live on bread alone (and with papa, of course) and has started out to prove it in this amazing city of breads, pastries and chocolates. Today I am just going to make your mouth water. My mouth is doing just that as I dip my fresh, crunchy grissino into my Purina chopped cod with sauce....

This is the newly restored Russian Cathedral in Nice, France, which has been in controversy for so long and is now resolved. On 10 April 2013, the Cour de Cassation, the highest civil court in France, refused to quash the decision of the Court of Appeal, with the result that the building itself and the parcel of land on which it stands were confirmed as...
