NO, NO, I DO NOT WANT TO GO ON THAT GIANT WOO-WOO MONSTER! Hey, you guys, just pack your bags and beat it, okay?  I have Mya to write to me and my very own Snuggler Sitter and please do NOT worry about me because this will be a good test of character for all three of us. Meanwhile, I’ll lounge and chase those birdies with the fan belt problems and...

You’re going WHERE?  WHEN?  Haha, just kidding, I’m up on everything and I’m planning to have a few houseguests in your absence.  No, no not many, maybe a couple of hundred… Mama, you are NOT going to be able to shut that thing! Okay, okay, I’ll get out of it… Oh, boy, from the itinerary published in the NYT of T’s...

Well, they leave tomorrow–I’ll just play possum and pretend I don’t care. But here is a lesson for mama today. THEY are about to bug out for a visit to those little anthros who have FINALLY learned not to pull my tail (bonne chance under the bed, haha) and boy, are those little devils going to be sad when they find out I am NOT with mama...

“Faux Winter” Woes

Posted by on May 20, 2017 | 8 comments

That’s not snow outside but it feels like it! Brrrr…(whatever that means).  A fake winter. Oh, boy, it is freezing here and the wind is up and winter has returned in full regalia! Whatever that is. Oh, and the heating system doesn’t function but I’ve sent out a posse for the repair guy so maybe he’ll show this time. Aside from...

Paws That Refresh II

Hey, okay, it’s repetition, but sometimes mama gets carried away with my patty paws and just wants me to pose for pics of them so here they are.  I love putting my paws up and relaxing when I’m in a meditative mode, and believe me, nowadays one really needs to meditate! Or be mindful.  Or whatever. Here’s a puzzle:  try to figure out what...

Well, if I lose readers today, so be it.  Mama’s world is that of civility,  care for one’s fellow anthro, and conscience. Above all, ethics and conscience.  Where on earth did our country go wrong?  Education?  Parenting? An awareness of the Golden Rule, do unto others as you would have them do unto you? Remember that?  Instead, we appear to...

Well, I think that’s what I enjoy most, if we are talking about tender loving care.  But maybe those letters stand for, Tough Luck, Comrades!  It’s not a question of  ME not having YOU for a time.  It’s a question of YOU not being able to snuggle ME! Sigh. Mama has to go to the market an the expo so she can’t help me with some...

The Great White and Black Hunter

The Great White and Black Hunter

Posted by on May 16, 2017 | 12 comments

The hunter, with infinite patience, regards her prey, unmoving, quiet as…well…a mouse, steadfastly planning intricate strategies with which to carry out the act of attack! The GW & B hunger (did I say that? I meant ‘hunter’) stays still as a glassy lake, still as early morning, still as only a GW & B hunter can stay still. ...

Kitty Concerns

Posted by on May 15, 2017 | 14 comments

Well, mama is in a BIG dilemma over me and arguing with herself all day long about whether to travel with me to see the little grand anthros, thus causing me major trauma for 48 hours on one end (going) and the same thing on the other end (returning), plus time in a place with NO garden (no pot to you know what in, so to speak) to scratch in, no flowers to...

DO NOT TRY TO PLACATE ME!  We were simply NOT WANTED! Well, THEY certainly had a good old time, while WE (Mya and I) were sitting at home without being able to hoover up crumbs (Mya knows the command, HOOVER!) and I miss the salmon canapés.  We shall get even but we don’t know when. THEY will have to watch their BACKS. Meanwhile, here’s a sort...

NO, NO don’t make me hang another picture. I’m worn OUT! Well, here are  few of what went on in that hanging in that expo, and then I’m bowing out to sit on mama’s head and keep her company.  This was a LONG day for mama and papa–truck rental, loading, unloading, hanging, labelling, rehanging, but a nice little lunch with the...

Mama, I can’t take any more stress.  Deep breathe, okay? Well, today was the first day mama and papa had to enter Le Dome, the gallery where mama’s art will be shown, beginning on Saturday at 6pm.  But what if it DOES rain?  Oh, boy…I’m not going think about that and maybe these weather anthros will have made a big mistake and the...

Uh, oh, are those heavy grey clouds I see?  Mince!  A polite word for, wll, for the S word. Well, Saturday is just around the corner and it is supposed to RAIN!!! Oh, boy, we’ll be eating guacamole and pinwheels and cookies and salmon and truffles until the cows come home, whenever that is, but mama is really a bit worried about who would show up in...

I’m resting after election exhaustion. Well, I was displeased and pleased, both, to hear from a reader who feels that to have an opinion about the politics of his/her country is not permitted, or at least that I “live in a bubble”–implying that I know nothing of the diverse platforms of the two French candidates in the elections on...

VIVE LA FRANCE! Oh, boy, are we happy to see that perhaps there are some sane people left on the planet, as in the French citizens who voted for a man who wishes to unite the parties, handle immigration with compassion, and bring the French people together instead of having them separated by fear and hatred.  A stunning victory for Macron and I hope he has...

Elections wear me out.  Didn’t we just have one in the US and look what happened THERE!!!  How time flies. Well, today is election day here in France and we shall see what we shall see.  An article this morning that mama read to me was about Mr. Macron and we are hoping he is successful.  Yes, he is young, but he is incredibly smart and able and I...

Well here I am lying against a rose-covered pillow, wiped out really. I’ll see if I can manage a quick blog. And today,  I’m just going to make you smile, and if you could also SMELL these babies, especially that one right in the middle, you’d be in 7th heaven, wherever that is.  Mama’s roses are bustin’ out all over and since...

Hey, mama what’s that weird thingy on your knee?  Oh, you got zapped today, right?  Did it hurt?  No? Well, that’s a plus…and only two more to go. Mama has had her knee infiltration (as they call it here) of a really good product for repairing minicuses, minuscae? Minisci? That stuff around your knee between the bones that lets you move...

First, let me say how sad we all are that Flynn is no longer with us.  Love and kind thoughts to his family who had two of the loveliest kitties on earth. This year has been heavy with kitties leaving us.  I hope so much that the future will hold more joy than sorrow… ***** Up To New Tricks Now, let’s have a look at this silly thing mama bought...
