Some days, do you just feel like this?  Just feel like letting it all hang out? Well, that’s today. A short blog because mama’s making our Sunday night pizza and she has to put the mozzarella on in 2 minutes and I’m helping with the…er…scattering on the pizza, hoping a little morsel will hit the floor. Happy Sunday to all, and...

Or, in this case, a smoking drone, AND some interested bystanders. Well, these kitties are a bit…er…larger than I or any I have seen in my short lifetime, but mama showed me the video of them in their tiger refuge and all I can say is, they are beautiful, beautiful kitties!!!  The park sends drones out to give the tigers exercise, as...

Well, I just read that Socks needs some love sent his way, even though he is eating and getting snuggled a lot. Marcus of the Funny Farmers has plans to open his Private Dining Car for rent.  Many of his family appear to want to eat in it instead of where they normally dine.  I wonder how I can make reservations, and will he be serving kitty food for those...

Book Ends

Oh, how I wish I could read more and more books forever… Well, mama is incredibly touched by a book she is reading that was written by the publisher of her book on bread and who is now writing his own lovely, mind-changing books.  Books on books and reading–amazing new thoughts from this very special man, and mama is loving every sentence. She...

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,...

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...

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....

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

I hope these answers help. Well, here is what a paw-paw is, as lots of people have asked about them.  I think they actually taste pretty good, according to mama, but the seeds get in the way a bit. Our Hawaiian friend says they are akin to papayas, but frankly, I think the Hawaiian ones win.  There may be some in your neighbourhood!  Paw paws, I mean, not...

Well, as you can clearly see, I am not an athlete but I do admire other kitties’ prowess and this kitty happens to be a master at ping pong. Hmm…wonder if papa would get us one of those tables, or maybe just the net that we could string across the floor somewhere…hmm. I love sports and watch soccer with mama and papa all the time (those...

Well, my blog today has absolutely nothing to do with Appalachian history, but I found out about paw-paws by taking these shots of my…er…paws, and thought a little history might be of interest to everyone.  I also was not really clear on what a paw-paw is, but now I know more than I’d ever want to about them!  What was fun was hearing the...

Now I would NEVER do such a thing, haha. Well, there was one bad doggy in this town many years ago.  And may be one on the loose right now.  Check this out: Now how many of you kitties out there would actually walk over wet concrete, without thinking about consequences–getting it off when it hardens, trying to take a bath with your feet having just...

Well, Ernie from The Island Cats let me in on the Kitten Bowl and I took a selfie with the cutest little grey and white kitty, Catsanova, one of the Kitten Bowl picks this year.  But I didn’t even know what the Kitten Bowl is!  And actually, I still don’t.  Something to do with Hallmark cards, I think.  But I guess everyone who could have would...
