Too Late To Log On

Posted by on Nov 19, 2017 | 6 comments

I’m a bit tired myself…just want to disappear into this comforter… Well, that just means that mama is so tired that she cannot help me with her usual fixing of typos and inserting of pics, etc. that I seem to rely on lately.  Our time differences (7 hours, 9 hours and even 12 hours for Hawaii!) sometimes make me sleepy when it’s...

TV or NOT TV

TV or NOT TV

Posted by on Nov 18, 2017 | 20 comments

HEY, you guys–put this TV on the right station, okay?  It’s the DERBY!!! Well, all I can say tonight is definitely TV in that we are all three watching the famous Derby–a soccer match between la Roma team and the Lazio team, dire enemies and from the same town.  Each large town in Italy has two teams and people root for one or the other...

Hi, there.  Today I am turning my blog over to mama’s photos of some pretty silly but fun things she saw strolling around our beloved city, and far be it from me to judge.  But I’ll put them in anyway and just keep taking a bath, which is far more important than some of these weird photos! So here are three ladies at the Rome Filmfest, and you...

My Reply paw, going at it! Well, I am glad to say that all of you out there helped with the mystery of whether my Reply box, when used, every gets to the anthro or doggy or kitty who used the Comments Box!  Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t.  Hmmmm. Well, I reply to all comments (except that pingback thing, whatever that is) and enjoy doing...

Hey, out there, a question:  do you get my replies to your kind and loving comments or does replying mean that I have to expect that you’ll visit the blog again where you left the comment in order to see my response?  I hope that’s not too complicated to answer and not a pain for you if you have to do that. I’m asking my guru if you will...

Well, I’m about to snooze off here, on this lovely orange softy thingy that mama uses, but she has found a smaller one for me and guess what color? Grey and black, because, guess what else?  My few hairs that I leave behind over a period of eons will not SHOW, haha. Anyway, taking of pic of me when I am right on the edge of dreaming is not my idea of...

Food Facts?

Food Facts?

Posted by on Nov 13, 2017 | 17 comments

Oh, boy, do I need some FACTS! Now hear this, dear readers:  mama does very well on the internet when looking for healthy info about raising a sweet kitty (ie:me) but there are just too many conflicting ideas about what to put in our furry little tummies. Normally, I eat the same brand of wet and dry food, and I love it, and I am…er…regular,...

YAY, Winston came home! Well, we are all happy here to day because mamma opened her email and found The Good Life France, a magazine she loves and wrote for a couple of times, and the editor was ecstatic because her beloved kitty, Winston, gone for four weeks (!) was meowing outside her door.  A lovely story and photo of the beautiful Winston on Instagram...

Pro-crastination

“The Naked Maja Revisited” with apologies to Goya… Well, as you might surmise, I actually AM for crastination, if necessary.  For example, I put things off all the time by taking a nap.  Some anthros do that, too, but mamma isn’t very good at napping except at nap time, and so HER crastination seems lately to last all day long. ...

OH, BOY, did you see that article about koalas??? Well, actually it was on AOL, not the NYT, but what the heck… Well, yet another news item that might interest you, but it’s also a bit sad.  Mamma’s favourite photo of her mother is when her mama was in Australia and mamma’s papa took a picture of my nonna with a little koala bear on...

Here’s the fearless Tuxie standing guard patiently until the flea-ridden, nasty rodents of the world appear to be VANQUISHED! Well, Mya’s mama found this very touching article about us kitties, in case you have a moment to see just what we contribute to your lives.  And I suppose that, unlike doggies, we sort of go our own ways and to hell with...

Tea For Two (pronounced “Teah”)

(Sorry I missed my blog yesterday but papa has a little sniffle and I was stirring honey into his tea and giving him ear rubs) WHAT’S THAT? You say our friend Phoebe has a new addition to her house?  And that she’s not at all settled in with that idea?  Well, I’ll see what I can do and write her a little note, telling her how nice it must...

Sometimes in this life you just have to search for your REAL shape, for REAL expression, for deep communications with others through physical attitudes (whatever all that means). Well, just call me Pretzel Puss for short.    ...

Hey, you talkin’ to ME? All I said was, “Why don’t I get any of that soup you’re making for papa?”  And of course I know I can’t have any, but could you, next time, just put the bird in the pot with some water and let ‘er rip so I can partake of the white meat therein? (Whatever that means.)...

As you can plainly see,  I have a pretty good time here, despite the pouring rain (today), no garden (all the time), and the goings in and out of THEM. There seems to be more to do here, for some reason, than at that other place, but mainly because everything is so close there that you don’t have to walk far for, say, kibble supplies, or even...

Mama tells me to floss every day but this doesn’t look at ALL like the thing THEY use!  Is there a mistake here, mama?  And what’s that smell of chicken in the kitchen?  NO, NO, don’t put the wine in yet, or I can’t have any!!! Is that a myth or a reality?  If meats are cooked with wine a long time, can kitties have a bite or not?...
