Which Witch Is Which/Witch?

Posted by on Oct 31, 2016 | 22 comments

Well, a friend sent mama this cute little thing and I just stuck it in to elicit some oohs and aahs. A HUGE THANK YOU to the pumpkin carver who so kindly put Loulou on the above squash.  It looks wonderful!!! Nellie is truly an artist. If only mama had that skill… She is still wandering around in Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 trying to find the...

PRODIGAL PARENTS

Okay, okay, they came BACK.  But that does not preclude my irritation that they LEFT IN THE FIRST PLACE. Hey, forgive and forget, right? I am luxuriating in taking over papa’s side of MY bed, basking in sun puddles and in general loving the snuggles and cuddles that come my way (too often, if you ask me–can’t a kitty get some REST around...

Cleaning up for the folks! These guys are threatening to arrive on Friday so I have some housekeeping to do and some agreements to make with my Kitty Whisperer so that she won’t rat on me, haha, so to speak, and tell mama about all the fun we have been having breaking all the rules and eating ice cream and inviting all the kitties from the...

Well, THEY are back.  And that’s about all I an say except HOORAY!!! Papa said, “Hooray”, too! Mama was going to help me do this blog, but she collapsed for the night at 8pm after having come a gazillion miles and then driving home from Spain in two hours and then shopping and then unpacking (you’ll see my treat tomorrow) and so...

THESE JEANS AREN’T GOING ANYWHERE, Y’HEAR? Okay, friends, listen up.  Mya’s maman sent me this and boy, has my life changed!  Maybe her suitcase will be lighter as she packs for home, too, haha. I am SURE that you have others you could add to this list, and I would certainly add to mine that it is TOTALLY unnecessary for one’s...

Okay, while mama is trying to figure out where the coloring tools went on her Adobe Photoshop Elements Editing Program, imagine these patty-paws flashing all the colors of the rainbow, and you’ll get an idea of what I want her to bring me from her trip. You see, mama just sent me a video of her new shoes and I wish she had bought ME some, but...

My Grandma, Ros, wearing the little starfish pin I sent her.  I think it is trying to climb up her neck to give her a kiss. I miss my Granny… Well, actually, the truth is that this lovely lady anthro above has adopted me as her Grandkitty and sends me all sorts of interesting news about how to handle my wandering MAMA AND PAPA (!) and if she could,...

Up Close And Personal

Is this a magical sweet photo or what?  (And don’t think of it in kitty terms, just aesthetic ones. Stop that drooling!) Well, mama and papa found a slick little store in Paia, on Maui, and marvelled at photos taken by the Cesere brothers, two very adventuresome men who find myriad treasures underwater that live and breathe. Mama said you could watch...

Let’s Hear It For Penguin!

Posted by on Oct 24, 2016 | 9 comments

This story made me all warm and fuzzy. I’m sure by now everyone has seen the Penguin story about a magpie who changed lives.  And now there will be a book about this sweet birdie who was taken in by a loving family who were suffering themselves from a tragedy. Be prepared to weep a little.  I did.  I wish our magpies were like Penguin!    ...

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL Yes, The Cat On My Head selfies is underway!  Are? Must have good English at all costs.  But today’s selfies are really wonderful, especially the two-headed one. Imagine when selfies were first done and then took off like a bat out of hell.  Are we all egomaniacal?  Oh, no, kitties are NEVER that, haha. Still, maybe if mama sees...

Whatever that means.  Last leg of the journey, I think is what mama has written me.  They are coming back around the end of the week and boy, am I ready with surprises! A nice little decapitated mouse under the pillow ought to do it. Hey, just kidding.  You think I’m going to do that BEFORE I get my treats from wherever they went?  No way, Jose. And...

          Well, today, I am TOLD, mama and papa partook of the best sushi on Maui and did not put ANYTHING in an envelope to send to me so that I could have a taste!  Then they shopped for PRESENTS for those bad grandlanthros and for others I WILL NOT MENTION and there was no sign of getting anything for ME, MYSELF or…well,...

                HAHA, JOKE! Well, they’ll be eating poi, whatever that is, and learning the hula pretty soon, but I’ve asked for luau leavings instead of a lei. Wouldn’t do me any good anyway…orchids make me sneeze.  I supposed I could have made a slightly off-color joke about that one...

                    Well, I have to take a quick one-day break just because. Mama promised to send me some photos that I needed for my blog, but she FORGOT!  Probably not ALL she is forgetting, eh?  Well, I’ll forgive her this time but she had better get her ducks in a row for tomorrow or else. Or...

            Well, I haven’t started yet here, but I’m about to. And, with THEM gone, I am getting myself toned up and in shape for winter.  I know, I know, you’re supposed to do that for summer, but kitties have to do it for winter because they put on a couple of extra ounces with their winter furs and I wish...

Below is Eric, our local baker, who does some bang-up pastries like raspberry tarts, and those little rich corn pastries that are so prevalent...

Well, you see what mama sends me from Texas, photos of things that remind her of ME.  She SAYS she sees things everywhere, even on the arm of a girl in a market who evidently had her CAT tattooed on her body with adoring love!!! Mama has NOT tattooed me on HER body.  So it goes. But she said she bought something for me to wear to my next Halloween ball...

Ha, ha I know how to spell, that was just a lame excuse for a good title.  But when I read this article on how doggies smell, I was amazed!  And I don’t mean those that need a little shampooing… First of all, isn’t that a great selfie of that sniffer?  Sort of reminds me of darling Marcus at the Funny Farm.  When I read Jan’s story...
