If Music Be…

If Music Be…

Posted by on Sep 30, 2016 | 10 comments

Well, as they say, if music be the food of love, play on. BUT…is it really for some of us?  Many responses to mama playing Zen music for me.  15 and Meowing have their Grammie come and keep them company when maman is away!!! Lucky kitties.  And Jan’s Funny Farm animals are miffed at having no massage music when Jan’s away.  Probably a...

            HEY, if this isn’t nirvana I don’t know what is. Well, I don’t know if your family goes off and leaves you on some days and there you are, all alone and by yourself and wishing you had one other friend to play with (or not, maybe just glance at occasionally) and so your mama, wanting the best for...

Hey, a nice little glass of white would be good with this, no? Well, they are coming in, a bit early, mama says, but the summer was too hot and the grapes are ready to stomp.  Just kidding, make that ‘press’. What’s left after the vines are stripped. Into the barrels to age. Tonight it poured rain but everyone says that’s good for...

Ha, ha, ha, I laughed to the very end. Well, Mya’s mama sent my mama a link to a really funny kitty watching a horror film.  Mama thinks it is Photoshopped (like Ryan Gosling in whatever movie that was in which his date looks at his buff body and says, “OMG, you must be Photoshopped!”), but I’m not so sure.  I tried to put myself in...

Here is the Great Black Hunter, lurking dangerously close to her prey, watching with the eyes of an eagle or maybe a python or…er…whatever watches something closely, and she is pondering when to pounce on whatever it is that’s lounging by that swimming pool. BEWARE THE GREAT BLACK HUNTER! (I think I’ll wait until it eats more and...

Well, mama got me one of these things.  It squeeks and talks some kind of lingo that I have never heard, and I’m not sure any hamster has heard it either but they are pretty funny sounds, sort of like the Cirque du Soleil comedians that speak a language no one has ever heard before but it seems to make sense.  Not as serious as Game of Thrones,...

Where is my mama?  I’m in here every morning trying to get her to get her act together and PAINT.  She wonders why I am myowing (I like that spelling, sounds like my friend, Mya) after breakfast and running upstairs to her studio and hovering at the door for her to let me IN so I can crack the whip and get her working again.  She has to get some...

ARGGGG!  Mama is at it again, taking photos of OTHER DOGGIES when she is out at the market!  Can you believe it?  This one was a CHIHUAHUA who looks just like me in a Chihuahua suit! Same ears, same cute little face, same paws, same black and white head!!! Where does she get off doing this practically daily? Well, sometimes. YEAH.  You had BETTER watch...

Hey, I would have cleaned up that mess, mama.  You just have to ASK! “That Mess”= Mama’s three-days-to-make-soupe de poisson-with-green-crab-base-and-five-more-fish-soup-fish-added! Don’t look at me, all I heard in my deep slumber was mama yelling but…well, I’m not going to say what she was yelling but it was heard all...

Say what is downstairs on the wall? Well, mama was in seventh heaven this morning when she came downstairs (to let me OUT, but she STOPPED!) and found a praying mantis (whatever that is) on the wall of our dining room.  She ran to the fridge to get it some duck pâté she had made the day before, because years ago, when she and papa had his kids in the...

   This is a reprint, but it’s because today I was snoozing and jumped straight up off my little soft bed and heaven knows what was happening in my sleep but whatever it was, I wanted OUT of there. So here’s the question: Do kitties dream? Well, I certainly do. Mama says that when I snuggle up between her knees, sinking down into the wonderful...

And in case you are wondering, yes, I do sleep sometimes with my eyes half-open.  You gotta watch these anthros ALL the time to see that nothing untoward happens.  Plus papa is always waking me up to cuddle.  Oh, boy, the trials of the Tux. Sigh…...

(I was wasted, too, after mama had read me only one story; I have to recover) Well, mama just read me one of the stories in A Manual for Cleaning Women and we are both absolutely blown away by the brilliance of this writer.  Mama can’t figure out how she would miss such a talent in her book searches.  This from Amazon: “I have always had faith...

  Did you say we are having pizza on Sunday?  What about Friday and Saturday?  I saw, mama, that you have a new box of something or other to give me a little treat every now and then because a friend suggested that Friskies brand, and I DO like it, but between pizza and kibble, which one are YOU going to choose, huh?  That’s a no-brainer,...

Well, frankly, these rainy, zany days just make me want to lie here and ruminate.  So today, I’ll take a little break, waiting for sun puddles. Also, mama is about to feed me so this computer is off limits for at least half an hour while I eat, bathe and then decide if I will lie down again. Lying down won....

Uh, oh, oops!  I really wanted a good selfie, but not of my eyebrows!!! Well, anyway, let’s just say it’s a photo of my brain covering and there’s a lot going on in there, believe it or not.  Mama has been watching a UTube opera of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas done by the Berlin philharmonic and if you want to see an unusual staging of...

Well, I don’t know what anthros mean when they say when someone has ‘put his foot in his mouth’ and they look all upset and bothered about it and say, Well, he really did it this time, or Wow, was that a blooper.  Things like that. I have tried to figure this out for some time now and the following photos only show that putting...

What is mama thinking, that she take so many photos of Mya, who kissed me right on the LIPS just three days ago and I was too shocked to hiss or bat.  Not that I do either of those.  Mama has been teaching me to hold my own, but I am just not the pugilistic type, whatever that is. Still, to take YET ANOTHER PORTRAIT of that wiggly, rambunctious doggy is an...

Where can those kitties be?  GO HOME! Oh, we are so sorry that Chatter from My Kentucky Cats is missing now for 5 days!  Sometimes kitties just wander off, however, and if there is a safe place to wander, that’s even better, so I hope that there are not wild animals nearby.  Perhaps she just needed a little visit to someone else for fun!  Since I...

Well, this photo is of mama holding her sopping wet BEST hat that she has had for forty years and covets the way she covets ME and PAPA (and certainly she would not let US drown, right) was taken after she got home from her ordeal.   There she was, blithely walking home from the market with her caddy full of goodness, and trying to keep upright in these...
