YAY, YAY, let’s hear it for FRIDA, the WONDER DOG OF MEXICO!!! (Thank you, Mya’s mama, for bringing this to my attention.) Frida is going to make “going to the dogs” a very positive statement!!! Would that there were doggies everywhere like her.  Brava, Frida. Read her story and send hugs to this very brave and extraordinary doggy. ...

Repose

That was one exhausting evening.  I just had to stretch out and contemplate how to have visitors and make them feel at home.  But meanwhile, taking a good snooze does it for me every time.  I call it my Sleep Yoga, because I always wake up with new, fresh ideas about almost everything. Especially how to sleep better.  One must be aware of one’s pose,...

Well, yes, you might recognize that bad doggy, Mya, who is here to visit and is now following me around trying to make friends, but I’m just not up for it yet.  Maybe I’m just a bad hostess. She just keeps following and following and since I don’t know where I’M going, she probably doesn’t either, so I’m going outside....

Merci, grazie and thanks to Kitty Clysm for choosing us to be Supawstars!!! I hope we can live up this. But meanwhile… Some of you have seen this look before. Some of you KNOW WHY! Some of you have no idea how I...

If you think I am on the hunt with my dilated pupils, YOU’RE RIGHT!  I’m huntin’ mama who has just come in from her walk with a photo of THESE TWO: I have to say, the sweet little doggy who cannot see is really cute, and that’s her sidekick with her, also not able to see well and barks at big dogs who pass by, protecting his...

After The Fall…

No, it was not I who fell.  Alas, it was mama. Yes, the time has come to say that mama has only done this once, long ago, in Hawaii, jogging around the park in Honolulu, and bammo, flat on the left cheek but thanks to the quick thinking young man who was running the Coca Cola stand during a festival in the park and who was right next to mama’s...

Lots of Lotte (Monkfish)

Posted by on Sep 17, 2017 | 15 comments

So here I am lounging on my favourite outdoor chair, whilst sniffing the air from the kitchen that is driving me batty!  Mama, inspired by Mya’s mama who is traveling in Brittany, is making lotte a l’armoricaine, which is a fish soup to end all fish soups and I, of course, will be given, in the process, some nice fresh fish to nibble on.  The...

Worn Out

Well, I cleaned up the house from floor to…well…floor, I certainly couldn’t reach the ceiling, and that house sparkled when THEY finally got the door open. But this kitty is tuckered out, you had better believe it. And even more tuckered after about a gazillion tummy rubs and snuggles from the guilty parties attempting to make amends,...

Uh, oh, somebody’s ringing our doorbell! OH, NO, IT’S MAMA AND PAPA BACK HOME AND CAN’T FIND THEIR HOUSE KEYS! So do they really think I’m about to open that door?  No way, Jose.  I’m outta here because while their scruffing around in mama’s huge bag to try to let themselves in, I have to run around this place and CLEAN...

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz….             Well, peace and quiet at last.  THEY have taken the night off to go meet a friend in Barcelona who is having an eye exam at the really good clinic there, and there is some hope that the doctor there might be able to help.  But they won’t know until tomorrow… MEANWHILE, back at...

Well, I’m taking a little break today because I have been upstaged by another kitty, a Bengal-spotted-Zuzi (her name, Zuzi, not a race of kitty), and I’m deferring to her because mama says you have to be polite to your friends and give them a little space every now and then.  But I SAW what happened when THEY visited Zuzi–they fell in...

NO, NO don’t make me pick tomatoes, especially cherry tomatoes, which are not only hard to see but my paws don’t quite work that daintily. I think I’ll just snip off the whole branch and that way they’ll remain fresh for eating (heh, heh, mama duped again and my work cut in half!). But seriously, folks, there’s nothing like...

Oh, boy, mama’s calling me to come help in the kitchen…now what? Uh, oh, mama’s on a sourdough kick.  Not that she wasn’t on one, say, a gazillion years ago (okay, okay, mama, a few years ago), but at that time she was experimenting with all kinds of cooking and sourdough starters were just a part of the knowledge.  This one is just...

Well, today a little short blog on love.  A good friend sent the two tails above, which stimulated me to look around for more loving things.  Maybe it will help set the weary, battered world on a more joyful path.  Maybe Kim will fall for Dennis!!!  Love conquers all… Do  you think this little kitty knows what he is in for? Well, papa is a given when...

I’ve been perusing my Kim Jong Kitty book of nutty felines and realize that we have a looney on our hands right now in North Korea. So here is what I came to in my semi-demi-snoozing-spaced out survey of how the world might work a whole lot better: The key is Dennis Rodman. Yes, anthros out there, everyone KNOWS that Dennis Rodman is a fantastic...

I SMELL SMOKE! Well, I was writing along, about to tell you something I don’t remember, and mama yells, “LOULOU, there’s a brush fire up in the vineyard!” So I ran out and there was lots of smoke and fire engines making noises that doggies hate and there were flames and things going on I’ve never seen so I asked mama to snap a...

In The Raw

Posted by on Sep 5, 2017 | 12 comments

No, I’m not parading around nude or anything, haha. But for many reasons, not the least of which is getting very good advice from bloggers (thank you, Dezi, for in-depth info!) and vet sites about kitties doing better with raw meat (their diet in the wild) instead of commercial cat food, mama has begun to put a little raw whatever it is into my...

I love wandering around parklike surroundings.  I know I’d have fun at Bomarzo!               Well, this summer, the little anthros who were here for awhile went after visiting us to an agriturismo near Viterbo, Italy, with their nonna and mamma and papa and visited one of mama’s favourite places on earth, the...

                Hey, what’s that smell?  And who are those GUYS walking around with blue gloves on?  Well, blue brushes anyway–the gloves are to protect their hands from the deep blue-of-the-sea that mama and papa chose to repaint our shutters and windows. They were a bit long in the tooth, whatever that...
