Hey, I deserve this rest. Well, you are not going to believe THIS!!! Mama and papa were fixing dinner and it was very dark out so they turned on the outside light for me and I was going about my business of checking that things were right with the night when suddenly, a HUGE cream-colored kitty, and I mean large as a house (!) came barrelling over our...

WHO’S THAT TALL MAN AT THE DOOR? Oh, I am so lucky.  Our favourite fix-it man showed up a few minutes ago with a box of instruments and now there are sweet sounds coming out of our (should-be-used-more-often) piano that mama really DOES play and loves no end, but she had better get her fingers in gear pretty soon or I’m buying a tuba and...

OH, NO, not THAT! Well, yes, mama has just discovered that she is out of the booze with which she makes limoncello, that golden elixir so good for the tummy (and just to sip for the taste, haha).  SO, it appears that THEY will be going across the border where one can pick it up at a good price and lots of it.  It is called Thirty Six, trois-six, in French,...

ARGGGGGGGGGGH! Well, this incident is too close to home!  Mama and papa were coming back from the permaculture garden and VERY close to our house, too close, if you ask me, was this little creature, rubbing around on the shrubbery and looking seductive, knowing full well that mama is a pushover for kitties wandering the streets.  Just look at that playing...

Hey, at least we have nasties, as mama’s friend used to call nasturtiums.  Spring can’t be too far away… Well, a great lady here in our little ville is putting together a permaculture community garden with only volunteer workers and lots of elbow grease on her part (whatever that is).  The mayor’s office is contributing some help...

OOPS! Didn’t land that one! That’s me.  Just kidding, I’m not really cheap, and I haven’t ever skated, but if you were to be able to look at my abilities next to the Master Of The Ice, Nathan Chen, you would get my drift!  Oh, what a miracle is that incredible anthro, and so sweet and so cute and so REAL.  And such a breath of...

Sometimes a kitty just has to clock out and hope for the best. In winter, I don’t think there is a soul who wouldn’t trade the icy winds and sleety rain (whatever that is) for a nice soft couch where one can snooze off to Creamland and pack up all one’s cares and woes. It’s just hard finding the right position from which to slip...

Well, you see I have this blue thingy, a comforter of some sort, whatever that is, but definitely COMFORT for me (and also for mama later in the evening when I snuggle down into it with her), and I seem to have found a sort of security blanket, of sorts, that gives me solace in this crazy and confused world where children shoot other children and no one...

I am bridging the gap between my couch and where THEY have their Valentine toast.  Not as in crispy buttered whatever, but you know… They were drinking something red the other night but NO way am I tasting that! Well, from mama and papa and me — happy, happy Valentine’s Day!!! It is sort of a special day around here for sure, because mama...

                  How’s this for an odalisque pose? Well, mama has just read that portrait painting is quote “coming back” unquote!  Did it ever leave?  She is thinking about putting only portraits in her expo, and since her only dependable model is mama, haha, she would put in all her own portraits and...

Well, it’s just you and me, baby. FREE for one night.  Oh, and Lynne, but she’s cool.  We can cause some trouble! Well, THEY are taking off again (only for one night, I really shouldn’t complain) but lucky for me they are leaving me with Lynne who is another one of mama’s and papa’s sweet friends who offered to kittysit for an...

Just read mama’s emails.  Here’s a little travelogue. Well, papa’s ex, mama’s good friend, Gabriella, sent mama some amazing photos of painted houses in a neighbourhood of Rome called Tormarancia near Ostiense, Garbatella.  These are from the internet, but what an incredible idea, and aren’t they wild?  I think mama should...

If what Mya is reporting, I am NOT in a good mood about travel! HEY, LOULOU, let me tell you about the ordeal our friend had to live through from New Orleans to Nice! So Mya told me this over the phone. Well, Mya’s mama’s friend from New Orleans is dreading the home flight, after going through HELL just getting to Nice to visit!  Her plane was...

To Nip Or Not To Nip

Posted by on Feb 9, 2018 | 10 comments

Well, that is the question around this house right now.  A yellow Nip Nana arrived a few days ago and I sort of toy around with it, very sporadically, whatever that means, and of course I have my rather imposing Nip Cigar, which I also toss around from time to time, but I do NOT hang out with these guys for hours on end. Unlike what I do with mama and...

Well, as you can see, I am the stable soul to whom all turn for solace and strength.  I also make a nice head rest, haha. It is almost zero here, that’s with a C, not an F, Celsius, whatever that is, but mostly it’s COLD and fortunately we have a little fireplace in front of which I hang out of an evening. Mama, too.  Just wanted to put in a...

WHO IS THAT KITTY?  It never meows or moves.  Hmmm….resembles someone I know well. You know, I pass this portrait of myself every morning and sometimes I just stop and stare and who knows what idle thoughts are sifting through my little kitty brain?  But once, just once, I wish that kitty would jump down from its perch and PLAY with me!  Don’t...

Well, I’m about to do my triple axel here, or maybe it’s a camel, can’t remember. I think this is a Lutz, but not entirely sure… Well, mama and papa just saw a movie called I, Tonya, about that incredible skater whose boyfriend and HIS friend plotted to damage Tonya’s competitor for the Olympic skating team.  Tonya...

YOU WANT MY ID? I’m a KITTY, I’m black and white, I’m a tuxie, I’m old enough to drink out of birdbaths! Why are you hassling me? Well, here’s what happens all too often:  I read a nice blog and then I leave a comment and then I’m asked for an ID and I have to show some kind of ID and so then I have to open my WordPress...

What on earth can I give papa for Heart Day? Haha, I meant HARD to find, but not really.  I love puns.  It’s just that February is a special month around here, seeing as how mama and papa are hopeless romantics, whatever they are, and they mush around and hug and have twinkles in their eyes because they both LOVE Valentine’s Day. It’s not...

Well, not literally, but HURRAH anyway!!!  Maybe that guy from the spam put a spell on mama and she just broke it! Mama may be from Texas but she is NOT a horseanthro although she loves them through and through.  But she IS back in her studio throwing that stuff around that smells like someone is doing a remodel or maybe a little like what makes a car go,...
