No Katie Here

In much lighter news, The Girl is in the Pacif­ic North­west! For three weeks! She’s scout­ing col­leges and see­ing friends and so on. She’s already in geo-love after just a few days, say­ing she’d like to live there. Her hosts seem like Very Good Peo­ple, and I hope to meet them when they come to […]

Silly Beast

Oh, for a work­ing cam­era!1

Katie cleaned the top of the file cab­i­net next to my chair with a Method clean­er that is strong­ly mint-scen­t­ed. Kyoshi won’t let us put the scan­ner there as intend­ed, because he’s lick­ing the cleaned sur­face and rub­bing all over it orgas­mi­cal­ly. (Cat­nip is in the mint fam­i­ly, and I […]

Sunday Night

Yes, I’m bor­ing. I hate try­ing to think of titles for posts.

The girl is off vis­it­ing, hav­ing left yes­ter­day after­noon. Her cat is fran­tic. He is very much attached to HER, not US. So when­ev­er she leaves the house, he goes nuts, gets ter­ri­bly anx­ious, and is cer­tain that she’ll nev­er, ever come back. […]

Monday and R.I.P. George Carlin

I guess every­body has heard, by now, that we lost George Car­lin last night. I’ve seen many arti­cles about him today, but I think Susie Bright did the best job of catch­ing his spir­it.

Today was a very Mon­­day-ish Mon­day. I’m grumpy and noth­ing feels right. The girl is off spend­ing time with my fam­i­ly, […]

Kyoshi — with flowers!

As you can see, he enjoys the fin­er things in life, like flow­ers. Espe­cial­ly if he’s per­mit­ted to maul them.

Kyoshi and Shelley

Yes, the kit­ten has a name of his own! And he has accom­plished much, as evi­denced by this pho­to­graph. Many a cat has attempt­ed to snug­gle with Shel­ley over the past 16 years since her last play­mate died, but very few have suc­ceed­ed. She has even groomed him a bit!

My heart has been stolen!

By a dark, blue-eyed stranger who walked up to me last night. He looked into my eyes and I was gone!

We think he’s about 8 weeks old. He’s very skit­tish right now, pre­fer­ring to stay out of sight and away from Shel­ley unless there’s crack wet food in ques­tion.

Shel­ley is NOT […]
