                NO I WON’T WEAR THAT!!! (Reprinted from long ago, 6 years ago in fact) inspired by Raena Belle dressed for a Fashionista happening!) Here’s a doozy!!! Every morning mama weighs herself, as I might have mentioned, and then she picks me up when I least suspect it and then weighs the two of...

Pride and Prejudice

Posted by on Aug 30, 2017 | 29 comments

Be proud to speak out against prejudice. At the risk of losing readers, and because I am from Houston, (and have  many friends and family there), under water and a serious tragedy, which the president used for his own self-aggrandisement, I wish to say that this anthro who calls himself a leader has no place in our United States of America.  Has no place...

Mama, I am still working on this Photoshop Eements hassle but I do appreciate your thoughtful and kind touch. But—am still trying to find an app that will convert my Adobe 15 photos to a format that can be copied into the Wordpress without having to upload a gazillion photos to Media Library, which takes a gazillion hours to do. I think maybe...

I have company AGAIN??? Oh, boy…                 Well, that doggy came back tonight and ate our watermelon and mozzarella!!! Have you ever…? The funny thing is that mama gave Mya a teeth bone to chew on and we all were horrified that the end was covered in what looked like blood, and it turned out to be...

I DON’T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT ADOBE AND WHAT IT MIGHT HAVE MESSED UP!  I CAN’T FACE IT…               Well, we installed a new Adobe 15 Elements and it will not allow me to copy from it and paste into a blog.  PLUS, I cannot now use my Picture Paste, which I have been using for years—a great program...

OOPS! The doorbell, and guess who’s coming to dinner?  That BAAAAAD doggy, Mya, canine Hoover, Gourmet des Tomates, Octopolpe Antagonist (you really should see her go at this critter), and more… Talk about a magician!!! Well, that bad doggy was here and vacuumed up all the windfall cherry tomatoes from under mama’s plants and we are ALL...

You could hypnotize me in a New York minute if you rubbed MY tummy! Well, I was just pondering my friend, Mya’s idea about what we kitties might do to our future prey with just a little kitty kindness and a sweet voice (maybe in Chinese) and a little tickle under the chin (or lower) for lizards, geckos, birdies, you name it!!! Maybe getting them in...

Well, I am rollin’ in nip. Some like to roll in dough, but not this kitty. (Especially not dough with olives in it, which is what mama is making today–baguettes with Kalamata olives all through the loaves.) For some strange reason, REAL honest to goodness nip for kitties cannot be found around here.  Mama went everywhere and ended up with seeds...

Jean gave us HOW MANY TOMATOES? Holy tamale, what does mama do when her incredible neighbors send up an enormous bucket of their beautiful jewels, enough for five people?  Well, winter here we come–tomato sauce, tomato paste, tomato soup, you name it.  And now a really tasty recipe of papa’s ex-wife that mama made for lunch (and I got some...

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy BIRTHDAY, dear Evelyn…happy birthday to you..lalalala Long ago and far away… Well, I didn’t know her and I think she was not too partial to kitties, but mama’s mama’s birthday would have been today and she would have been over 100.

How Green Was My Garden

How Green Was My Garden

Posted by on Aug 21, 2017 | 12 comments

Mama says her garden isn’t like past gardens, so do I have to sit here all day waiting for her to see that there are FLOWERS.  At least there are flowers! And many, many cherry tomatoes for that bad doggy, Mya to hoover up when she gets here.  I mean, really, have you ever heard of a doggy having a passion for CHERRY TOMATOES?  Weird… Hey, it...

Well, that was something!!! Here I am, resting on mama’s leg, exhausted from little anthros’ snuggles. Boy, I should hire out these little darlings–I was brushed, snuggled, talked to endlessly, regarded with love and admiration, and at times, pushed to a limit (Wake up, Loulou, I’m here, let’s play, do you want to be brushed,...

I was just sitting here in my St. Vincent scarf (a new design comes out each year to wear during the festival) when the doorbell rang. Oh, boy, our Garden Guru has done it again. On the doorstep were THESE, in the lovely orange bucket that Jean Riere manages to fill and give away to us weekly! The most beautiful, shiny red peppers and the little piemientos...

Post-St. Vincent. And a good time was had by all… Well, mama’s fireworks photos weren’t all that snazzy, but she says the bangs were BIG (earplugs in most ears) and the show, spectacular.  Better than all the other years she and papa have seen it. I snoozed. But I was sorry to miss the little 7-year-old being taught to dance by his...

WOW! It’s a hot time in the old town tonight! Oh, boy, is the music all around this little burg today!  Actually the music was heavy around Wednesday and there was an all-female anthro band that mama said was really amazing…a tuba, clarinet, horn, drums and trombone! Then there is the lady who makes animals out of balloons (mama said one popped...

I am SOOOOOO FRUSTRATED that I just had to attack my mouse to let off some steam. (This is the photo I am trying to save to Adobe) So here’s the question:  does anyone out there try to ‘save as’ photos from emails and have the choice of where to put the photo, as in Pictures, and then you click on ‘Save’ and the picture does...

I’ll probably stay  home and play with my elastic and avoid the crowds!  And the HUGE winds that may not allow the fireworks tomorrow night.  Hey, better for my ears…. Happy August 15th!!! Well, there is a lot of hustle and bustle around here for the holiday of St. Vincent, patron saint of fishermen, for whom Collioure celebrates the middle of...

Who the heck is this?  They’re all over the place and all over me.  But one is a great tummy-rubber… Oh, lordy, another one.  Couldn’t they put me in a more…er…flattering position. These guys just bill and coo over me (hey, I’m not a tourterelle!) and then expect me to TAKE IT ALL!  Actually, mama does love to have...

  Uh, oh, I have to get to my computer—I wanted to get this one in asap! Well, recently, a very nice man, Wang Beezer (Wang last name, Beezer first name but in China it is reversed), sent Loulou information about a very snazzy kitty litter box (designed by a friend of his)  that mama felt was beautiful and efficient enough to put on my blog and so...
