Usually, if someone gives me "this kind of look",  it means that I am doing or saying something incredibly stupid.   Fortunately, Kitty has a tolerant and forgiving soul...

Kitty is usually a good listener, but when I try to explain the wild and wooley ways of the world, her eyes quickly  glaze over...

And on one of those introspective days, Kitty gets down to work,  exploring life  from within...  roundabout...  and through...

When I look into Kitty's eyes, it is fairly obvious that she is from another place...   Perhaps she is just here on some sort of extended vacation...

For some reason Kitty seems to have a lot  more hair  than anything else.

With a whole lot of encouragement and pointing, I occasionally succeed in getting Kitty to look at her image on the screen, but she always seems rather unimpressed and quiet.   Just the occasional  Pffbt...

If you old enough to remember Felix-the-Cat,  you might remember the scenes in which Felix, starting with nothing, drew himself...   Felix used a pen...   Kitty could probably use her tail...

Taking Kitty for a walk is easy.   All I have to do is pick her up and carry her around the house from room to room.   She seems to love the ride, because it always gets her purring.   But what she really seems to love is the elevated perspective.   Being built so close to the ground must get old after a while.   Yes Kitty, it's a tall and very big world you live in.

Believe it or not,  Kitty's actual and true name is Whiskers...
I'm not exactly sure why, but I almost never call her by that name...

Every time Kitty gets her allowance she makes tracks for the local head-shop...   Usually she comes back broke and cross-eyed, but this time she has returned with special eyeglasses  capable of blending reality with imagination...

I'm not sure how Kitty would feel about the occasional haircut, but with all the very fine training I've been giving her as a lap-cat I think she'd make a very fine lamb...  baah...

Somehow, just somehow, I think Kitty might take exception to the idea of electrical operation.   After all, she has all the best kitchen appliances and gadgets wrapped up in one -- me...   When Kitty is hungry she simply "says so" and then I go get her what she wants...   Reliable as all get out... It's a great system...   Works just fine...   God bless America...


          Kitty, the blog animal         February 27, 2011

Oh, you've heard of lap-dogs -- in general I think they are pathetic...   But maybe you haven't heard of a lap-cat -- that's what Kitty is, and pathetic or not it's what I have, so I've had to make the best of it...   Well, Kitty thinks my lap is the best chair around -- right now she's taking a break and is napping on our couch, but normally she is right here on my lap -- keeping an eye on everything that goes on...

Kitty apparently spends so much time on my lap that generally I smell just like her...   When dogs get a  sniff  of me they somehow think I am just one funny looking cat...   They are always VERY interested in the way I smell...   I always have to explain to their owners that their dogs are smelling my cat, lest they assume I haven't bathed recently or stepped in something...   Like I mentioned last week -- "what a life"...


          Kitty, the blog animal         February 20, 2011

"Hold still  Kitty, I'm trying to take your picture"...   Oh yeah, like a verbal instruction -- not related to food -- is going to work...

Assuming she is awake, Kitty is a busy cat.   Really...   There's so much to attend to, I guess, when you have so much hair...

And then there's a dinner request to be made -- a hollow look usually does the job...

But of course, her ultimate goal is to be right here with me -- I've got a lap, and Kitty knows what laps are for...   What a life...


          Kitty, the blog animal         February 13, 2011

The opportunity for Kitty to sit down for a  portrait  doesn't present itself frequently enough...   Kitty's always busy with her opera lessons and volunteer work, and me -- well, lets just say that I keep really busy shoveling snow and de-icing my California sidewalk...

But the truth be told -- Kitty and I are incurable pathological liars.   It's where unchecked pessimism goes -- it's a logical progression...

Eventually Kitty will go on to make headlines on Broadway while doing even more wonderful volunteer work for society -- but as for Kitty's dad -- well I'll just keep shoveling snow and de-icing my California sidewalk...


          Kitty, the blog animal         January 23, 2011

Kitty is a true beauty just the way she is, but you know how it is, day after day, a black and white cat -- I think they call them "tuxedo" cats...

So, I know it might sound just a bit silly but this past week we had Kitty chromed...   Believe it or not...


          Kitty, the blog animal         January 16, 2011

There's no shortage of  deer  at KittyLand...   We have tasty young blades of grass -- grazing is always good on this hillside...

Kitty has me get her grub from places like Costco and Safeway...
Kitty knows how to work the system...


          Kitty, the blog animal         January 9, 2011

It's a  nose  kind of thing...

It's a little ritual Kitty and I go through -- usually first thing when we wake up -- Don gets a kiss on the nose...   Sometimes Don has to ask for the kiss, and other times it is totally gratuitous...

Okay, okay, it's more of a lick than a kiss...   And it's sloppy and weird, but after all is said and done Kitty and I are best of buddies...   Believe it or not...


          Kitty, the blog animal         January 2, 2011

Two of just about everything...

Two eyes, two ears, two nostrils, two ears, two sides to her brain...

Two Chinatown streetlights to guide our way -- the two of us...

It's a  dual  kind of thing...


          Kitty, the blog animal         December 19, 2010

Well, I had been thinking all week that I would have time and the opportunity to get a few new snaps of Kitty, but things just didn't turn out as planned, so I'm going to have to show you two  old photos  today...

This was Kitty in July of 2004, apparently checking out some of the more mysterious metaphysical qualities in nature...


          Kitty, the blog animal         December 12, 2010

Getting a photo of Kitty isn't easy -- when she is ready my camera generally isn't, and vice-versa...   But everything fell into place yesterday -- my camera was ready and Kitty was enjoying some time outdoors -- the perfect combo...

Here Kitty is (1), demonstrating her relaxed, yet attentive pose, and (2), scratching  after those torturous damn fleas that have been so relentless this year...


          Kitty, the blog animal         December 5, 2010

Oh, I suppose the folks down at San Francisco's  Museum of Modern Art  are going to eventually figure this out and restore their gallery to proper order -- but yes indeed, that's our beloved Kitty hanging there.   Believe it or not...


          Kitty, the blog animal         November 28, 2010

Winter has arrived suddenly at Kittyland and already a  pattern  of boredom is giving us a small dose of cabin-fever.

Of course, we've already gotten out the board games, and I suppose we'll gravitate towards the zigsaw-puzzles at some point, but right now all Kitty wants to do is play checkers.


          Kitty, the blog animal         November 21, 2010

Kitty is quite a bit larger than any  teacup poodle,  but she too has certain privileges...

A lot of Kitty's privileged life centers around food, and the rest of her entitlement is concerned with maximum rest and relaxation...   That's all Kitty really needs to be concerned with...   Besides love, it's about all she understands...


          Kitty, the blog animal         November 14, 2010

"Police  your dog".

Kitty is probably enamored with the concept.

Poetry to her ears.

Justice served.

Case closed.


          Kitty, the blog animal         November 7, 2010

The other day while out at Roy's Redwoods a  bobcat  crossed my trail -- it was carrying a rodent of some kind and was looking for a quiet place to settle down for a juicy and warm meal...

Of course I had to tell Kitty all about the experience when I got home, but I resisted the temptation to tell Kitty, once again, that some animals in this world have to go out and hunt down their food...

Kitty is getting up there in age and (((thankfully))) she hasn't caught a mouse or a bird in the past few years, but she used to be quite the hunter...   She would wait for hours at the base of our retaining wall and then make a tall leap if a bird happened to land in the danger zone...

I was never able to break Kitty of the habit of bringing her kill inside the house, but fortunately she would always take her trophies into the bathroom, where she would make one heck of a mess -- feathers and guts and blood everywhere -- but with the linoleum floor the mess was fairly easy to clean up...

These days I love to show Kitty the birds playing uncautiously outdoors...   And she seems interested, but not interested enough to chase after them or plan covert attacks...   Maybe I should get her a camera with a telephoto lens so she could take pictures...


          Kitty, the blog animal         October 31, 2010

Early Sunday mornings is a great time to go spooking around San Francisco's Chinatown -- they're a bit rare but a guy never knows exactly when or where he is going to run into a  Chinese cat...

Oh, my father used to tell this to me, so I've undoubtedly told Kitty the story about the starving cats in China and how lucky she is to have me round up her grub...   I think she definitely understands...   That's why I get a kiss on the nose in the morning -- this morning I got two...


          Kitty, the blog animal         October 24, 2010

Yesterday I ran across this old photo of Kitty -- it was taken  years ago  in April of 2000...

And aside from better computer equipment these days (((that's an old Windows98 machine in the photo))) the scene hasn't changed a whole lot in these past ten years...   Kitty still sits right there -- waiting for the preferred spot on my lap...   Life goes on...


          Kitty, the blog animal         October 17, 2010

It would be highly inaccurate to call Kitty a  quiet  type of cat.   Ever since I taught her how to talk it has been nothing but nonstop chatter...

Need a testimonial on her food? ask Kitty...   Need a good-afternoon greeting? just pass by and Kitty will talk your leg off...

But Kitty talks loudest when she isn't making a sound at all...   Oh, you know, it's those eyes -- as sharp as her claws, and just as deadly.


          Kitty, the blog animal         October 3, 2010

On Friday I fell by San Francisco's  Hardly Strictly  Bluegrass Festival -- there was no shortage of dogs with their masters -- one and all were definitely enjoying the picking and singing.   But then I spotted what was probably the only cat in attendance, and she was a true beauty...

But I'm afraid that Kitty never gets to go anywhere -- I'm way too afraid I would lose her...   Nor do I think she would enjoy going to new places and experiencing new things -- she is SO shy and a bit skiddish around strangers...   Yes, Kitty, you stay home and guard the home-front -- I'll be back soon, but I'll miss you, 'fer sure...


          Kitty, the blog animal         September 26, 2010

Kitty's buddy, I think his name is  Alvin the Chipmunk,  wanted to know why we had no edition of KittyBLOG last week...

Well, Alvin, it's my fault I suppose, although I'm going to try my best to blame it on Kitty...

Last week I was getting all set to "do" KittyBLOG when Kitty decided not only to walk across my keyboard but also to sit on my mouse...   That delay caused another delay, and another, and another -- so here we are today...

Where's Kitty?   On my lap as usual -- and right now she is having a rather wild dream, complete with snorts and snurts and a bit of wiggling around... Evidently, Kitty is a million miles away right now...   Life goes on...


          Kitty, the blog animal         September 12, 2010

Well, yes, I suppose  "cats and danger"  could be a new group of gangsters -- I found their calling card scratched into the patina of Platform Bridge, out in west Marin County...

I keep a pretty good eye on Kitty and she stays pretty close to home, so I doubt if she would be inclined to join "cats and danger", or whatever they call themselves...

Kitty and I keep busy with all sorts of fun things...   When Kitty gets tired of board games she takes a nap.


          Kitty, the blog animal         September 5, 2010

While spooking around last Saturday on San Francisco's Treasure Island I found the inevitable band of  stray cats,  doing the best they can under the conditions...

Kitty and I are rather lucky creatures -- wish we could do something for these...   That one looked a whole lot like Ms Kitty...


          Kitty, the blog animal         August 29, 2010

Recently Kitty and I got a membership to Costco so the other day I came home with a case of  Friskies,  Kitty's favorite brand of cat food...

And I realize there might be higher quality and more sustainably produced cat foods on the market, but this is a brand she seems to enjoy, no matter what flavor or style I pick out...

So there you go, Kitty, 48 cans -- er, 44 and 1/2 cans now of your favorite stuff.   And since I have no clue what Kitty's actual birthday is (((although I believe most cats are born in Spring))) we've decided to celebrate our birthdays together -- this is my 63rd and as close as I can narrow it down this would be Kitty's 14th...

Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!, but for a 14 year old cat I think she is remarkably preserved -- wish I could say the same...


          Kitty, the blog animal         August 22, 2010

Sorry,  dog,  Kitty isn't home...

Actually folks, Kitty was here sawing logs at KittyLAND early yesterday morning while I was down at Gate Five in Sausalito...   Gate Five is the original hippy houseboat community here in Marin County (California), and photo opportunities abound, which probably explains why I was there.

I managed to get several shots but eventually this damn dog started barking at me -- I guess with my camera I was acting even stranger and quirkier than the aging hippy residents of Gate Five...   Oh, it's a long story...

So, like I mentioned, this damn dog started barking at me and I realized that he wasn't going to stop barking, and if I didn't make my exit this damn dog was going to wake a bunch of people up.   The aging hippy crowd does not like to be woken up on a Saturday morning by some dip and his zoom lens...

Right now Kitty and I hate dogs!


          Kitty, the blog animal         August 15, 2010

Locke, California is a historic Chinese village in the Sacramento Delta, and on Friday I got to travel there on assignment for the photo-blog I produce; AphotoAday...

While spooking around the old buildings I kept coming across cats -- a genuine plethora of cats -- some who wanted nothing to do with me, and others who were anxious for a bit of attention...

And of course I had to tell Kitty all about it when I got home -- although I'm pretty sure she doesn't really approve of me being chummy with other cats...   I told her all about this particular kitten in the window of a Chinese medicine shop, and I would have liked to tell her all about her spitting-image; a black and white cat that looked quite similar to Kitty, but unfortunately the "tuxedo cat" kept her distance...

Oh, I suppose I could kept silent and not have told Kitty what I had been up to, but I think honesty is important in a relationship...   If Kitty could talk she would probably advise me that restraint is also important...

Sorry, Kitty...   I'll try to watch it next time...


          Kitty, the blog animal         August 8, 2010

The problem with  Bert and Ernie  is that all they had was themselves -- as far as I know they never owned a cat...

Seems like they never had much responsibility in their lives, and a cat like Kitty would have quickly fixed that...

Suddenly it would be all about Kitty -- a real live Muppet 'fer sure...


          Kitty, the blog animal         August 1, 2010

Kitty and I have a  dog,  -- oh, we don't really HAVE a dog -- but it's the big Woof-Woof that lives farther up in the canyon...   ANYTHING that moves in that area gets barked at...   The canyon is perfectly shaped so all the barking gets amplified and funneled down towards KittyLAND...

And then there is the little Yapper Poodle that has been taking lessons from the big Woof-Woof...   If it's outdoors it is going to Yap -- that is just what it DOES...   It belongs to a lady I know from years past, so I am always relegated to giving her a soft wave as I pass, but in reality I'd actually like to register a few complaints...

Thankfully, Kitty seems unbothered and rocks and rolls with it all...   After all, Kitty knows all about goofy dogs -- she's got the goofiest one of all sitting right here...   Woof Woof...


          Kitty, the blog animal         July 25, 2010

Oh gosh, it's not like I actually FORGOT to do KittyBLOG on Sunday as usual, it's just that I was super busy and assumed Kitty would pitch in and take up some of the slack...

But of course not!   Rather than contribute to the literary (((???))) effort around here, she would rather dream of  cat tails,  I suppose...

Maybe I could try to persuade Kitty to help by using logic and reason -- after all, she has an advertiser now (((check the left column))) and for the next several months she has obligations...   A bit of a responsibility but she is now able to pretty much pay for her own grub...   Some of the stuff she eats looks pretty good...


          Kitty, the blog animal         July 18, 2010

I had the perfect opportunity to get a  snap  of Kitty yesterday...   She was thinking about something, but she wasn't sending any postcards home...

Normally I would assume she would be thinking about food, but that can't be a 24/7 job -- she MUST have time for delving deeply into other things...

Perhaps subjects and categories we mere humans have no capacity to understand... Just possibly -- it could be true -- my elevator doesn't go quite as high as Kitty's...


          Kitty, the blog animal         July 11, 2010

The other day someone asked me how old Kitty was and although it's only an estimate I'd guess she is pushing about 14 now.

But ask Kitty how old I am and she would probably say about  four...

And sometimes I wonder what life would be without Kitty...   Well, for one thing, we'd have a lot less fleas around here, but there would be no place to call KittyLand...   There wouldn't be anyone to greet me when I arrive home, and who else in the heck would have the nerve to wake me up with kisses at 4:30 in the AM?

Sometimes I have to remind her who is the boss -- oh, who am I kidding... You probably know what I'm talking about...   Dogs have owners -- cats have staff...   Life goes on...


          Kitty, the blog animal         July 4, 2010

I would have written KittyBLOG a bit earlier today -- but I, minus Kitty, took a little trip over the hills out to the semi-secret coastal town of Bolinas...   It was the annual 4th of July tug-of-war between the community of Stinson Beach and all the old hippies who live on the other side of the inlet to Bolinas Lagoon. We also had live music and a rather unorthodox parade...   Believe me, it is like no other...

There is no shortage of  dogs  in Bolinas -- and most of them run free throughout the town as there really isn't any traffic or other hazards to speak of...

And of course, why leave Fido home?   just about everybody who visits brings their dogs along to the 4th of July celebration...

Anyway folks, I do wash them on a fairly regular basis, but my jeans must absolutely reek of the scent of that little four footed feline friend of mine -- and just about every dog I got close to must have though I was one big and strange looking cat... Sniff, sniff, sniff...


          Kitty, the blog animal         June 27, 2010

With Kitty it's not always easy to determine if she is just deep in a mood, or if she is actually thinking about something...

Or maybe it's a bit more complex -- maybe she finds comfort in exploring her spot in the space-time-continuum.   E equals M x C squared, and all that jazz...

I ask her only simple questions -- like what planet she's from...   Either she doesn't know or she isn't telling...


          Kitty, the blog animal         June 20, 2010

Well, two weeks ago I was telling you that Kitty was relaxing outdoors one day close to Mama Deer -- and that was true, but it is only by the magic of Photoshop that I am able to bring this  Egret  in close proximity with Kitty.

It's only a thought, but if Kitty had the opportunity to spend some time with other creatures she might realize what a pampered existence she has -- food from some mysterious source and a guy willing to hunt it down...

But explaining to Kitty that we've run out of corn-on-the-cob -- her favorite food if you didn't already know -- isn't an easy task...   First there's a look of disbelief, followed by more looks of disbelief...   All day yesterday, nothing but looks of disbelief...

So, finally the corn is in...   Kitty is, once again, a believer!


          Kitty, the blog animal         June 13, 2010

With Kitty so busy with her career it seems like she never has time to pose for her portrait,  but I snapped her yesterday during a rare moment when she wasn't moving in ten different directions...

Oh, she is on every committee down at City Hall you can think of -- and she gets phone calls at all hours from people who depend on her advice... At one point she was thinking of running for Dog Catcher...   No foolin'...


          Kitty, the blog animal         June 6, 2010

Well folks, here at KittyLand it's common to have  deer  walking through our yard all the time but for the past several weeks Mama Deer and her two fawns have been hanging out...

A few days ago I got home and was saying hello to Kitty who was relaxing outside enjoying the sunshine -- when I noticed that not more than six feet away was Mama Deer laying down...   I didn't see where her fawns were, but Mama Deer quickly got up and moved away.   It was a neat moment... Kitty has some new friends...


          Kitty, the blog animal         May 30, 2010

Well, Kitty, my  trusted companion,  is right here as always -- there is just enough space for her on my lap...

We are a real team -- she does nothing and I get to write about nothing -- it's a great working relationship...

Often, when the work is done, we hang around Kittyland afterhours and think about, well, largely nothing...   It's always nice to have that trusted companion nearby.


          Kitty, the blog animal         May 23, 2010

Well, you know how cats are -- they can be pretty darned  pushy  at times...

(((now, just try saying "pushy pussycat" a few times, fast)))
(((and for even more fun, try saying that into the ear of your cat)))


          Kitty, the blog animal         May 16, 2010

Oh, this is just too cool... Larry M. sent me a new photo of his Tuxedo Cat Shadow...   Rumor has it that Kitty may have been influential in Larry and his wife's decision to adopt a Tuxedo Cat -- glad Kitty could help out...

And they DO look so much alike...
Probably, too, thinking about the same thing -- lunch...


          Kitty, the blog animal         May 9, 2010

Yeah, Kitty, tell me the  truth...   Is it Don you love, or is it just the food and adoration he so abundantly bestows on you?   Or maybe it is the good-night stories, or the wake-up pats and kisses...

But heck, Don is no prize -- how I've won the heart of such a pretty little thing completely baffles me...   I doubt if I am worthy, but we seem to have a system that works...   Kitty is happy and I am happy...   Life goes on...


          Kitty, the blog animal         May 2, 2010

Yeah Kitty,  no loitering...   You'd think they'd make an exception for cats, but you know how the police are -- they always say they have no choice other than to enforce the law...

So, I guess Kitty will have to stay home today and do her loitering behind closed doors...   I can't afford to bail her out of jail...


          Kitty, the blog animal         April 25, 2010

Not that I would ever consider trading Kitty in for a  jack rabbit,  but I think rabbits have some interesting cat-like qualities...

Both creatures frequently pause to contemplate their surroundings...
Rabbits have big and beautiful eyes, just like cats...
Long and pointy ears, just like our friend Kitty also...

And beyond a shadow-of-a-doubt, I'm sure this particular rabbit would DELIGHT in a bowl of Kitty's premium organic kibble...


          Kitty, the blog animal         April 18, 2010

When Kitty isn't sleeping in a safe place, she is probably  hiding out  some other place -- she has a lot of places to hide here at Kittyland...

The ivy will do, but it's usually under the Juniper bushes -- a person could pass right by and not notice...

Oh, elusive Kitty -- what channel do you have on?


          Kitty, the blog animal         April 11, 2010

When I get asked;   "Who's your  buddy,  I always tell them that's no buddy -- she's the love of my life...

Sorry ladies, I am not only spoken for, but clawed-upon and nuzzled-about to just this side of infection...

And of course, the only cure is more and more Kitty...   And then some more...


          Kitty, the blog animal         April 4, 2010

Well, Kitty doesn't know quite what to think but I am happy-as-a-clam that she has a new advertiser which is going pay enough to keep her in grub for the next six months!

And you know how cats are -- sometimes their  curiosity  can get them into trouble -- so I suggest that we all be prepared and seriously consider buying some Pet Insurance for the unexpected...

Fortunately, so far as I can tell, Kitty has never injured herself or gotten sick so I have never had a reason to take her to the vet, but I've heard stories about what it can cost when that happens...

A few years ago a buddy had to take his cat to the vet, and I made an off-the-wall comment that "I guess they don't have insurance for cats", to which he replied; "yes they do"...   It's been in the back of my mind ever since.   I think it might be time to do something about it.   Maybe you should too...


          Kitty, the blog animal         March 28, 2010

Oh, I guess Kitty wouldn't have  stretched ears  if I wasn't pulling on them all the time...

And just like my mother used to warn me; "keep on making that funny face and it's going to stay that way", but I kind of like Kitty's new look -- maybe I'll have to go to work on her tail...


          Kitty, the blog animal         March 15, 2010

Kitty and her corn has always been a BIG THING around here at Kittyland -- and she has had it served and prepared in all it's variations...

But Kitty's newest recipe is  microwaved corn  -- just a bit of plain old frozen corn nibblets...   Simple to prepare and really economical -- just try buying fresh corn-on-the-cob this time of year...


          Kitty, the blog animal         March 1, 2010

Oh my god, but I forgot last week's edition of KittyBLOG and hope I'm not in too much trouble...   Actually I knew I was in the process of forgetting about KittyBLOG, but circumstances just prevented it from happening.   Kitty understands, I suppose...

But here's a brand  new photo   of her -- she is debating whether to get out of bed or not...   That was 30 minutes ago and it hasn't happened yet...


          Kitty, the blog animal         February 21, 2010

Did I ever tell you that  I love Kitty?

Well, hope everybody is having a great Valentine's Day...   Hope you got to snuggle with your partner this morning -- Kitty and I did, but that's nothing unusual...

Man and beast -- I sometimes take her unwavering love for granted -- one day of love turns into the next -- all the days run together -- this affair has been going on so long and so fast that our love seems like a  blur.

Kitty is still quite happy with her new spot on her new pillow, on the box, under the inversion table; in a quiet corner of my living room.

Used to be that Kitty would sleep by my feet (((and yet find a way to steal all of the covers))), but now she seems more comfortable on her very own new pillow...   And I thought we made such good  partners...

But Thank God she still remembers me -- she came and said hello this morning -- but only after a bit of coaxing...   But then it was like old times -- Kitty has a head that requires a lot of scratching...   Kitty's new pillow didn't come with fingers...   Kitty's Don still has a purpose in life, and that purpose is to be nice to Kitty...   Amen...

Kitty has moved her own little spot out into the living room -- pillow and all...   Well, I had to help her with the pillow -- oh I suppose she could have figured it out, but Kitty likes to have things done for her -- she is absolutely  luminous  about the arrangement...

What, I ask you, do all four of these photos have in common?
ANSWER:   Kitty has her eyes open in all four photos, that's what!

But don't get the wrong idea -- Kitty doesn't bother to keep her eyes open much -- now that I've given her a big square  pillow  in a cluttered corner of my walk-in closet.

And she loves the pillow -- now she finally has a little space of her own.

Actually, this all started last week when we had some of the most enormous thunder roll through KittyLAND -- Kitty was freaking out and found a relatively quiet and protected space in the closet   She has been choosing to sleep on her pillow at night as well...   Um, there goes my girlfriend -- I just lost my sleeping-buddy to a pillow...

Recently the California Highway Department stopped by KittyLAND with their stopwatches and counting-clickers -- they did a traffic study and determined that the Love in this area was moving way too fast...   Also, the Love wasn't stopping for stop-signs, and it was evident that nobody around here seems to know what a yellow light means -- no, they said, it isn't supposed to mean  "gun it and run it"...

When I'm not telling Kitty that she's so darn smart, or so incredibly funny, I'm usually telling her what a  pretty little head  she has...

But seriously, I haven't a clue (((unless it's the food))) why Kitty likes to hang out with me.   Heck -- I'm no prize, and I have never really been able to draw the attention of ANY highly attractive female of my own species...

But, you know what they say:

Beauty is only Skin Deep...

So in love, sad as could be
'Cause a pretty face got the best of me.
Suddenly, you came into my life
And gave it meaning and pure delight.
Now, good looks, I've learned to do without.
'Cause now I know it's love that really counts.

'Cause I know that...
(Beauty's only skin deep, yeah, yeah, yeah.)
I know that...
Beauty's only skin deep, yes indeed.

Now you speak your words warm and sincere.
And let's me know that your love is near.
A pretty face you may not possess
But what I like about you is your tenderness.
A pretty face maybe some guys taste
But I'll take lovin' in it's place.

'Cause I know that...
(Beauty's only skin deep, yeah, yeah, yeah.)
And you know that...
Beauty's only skin deep, oh baby, oh yeah.
(Oh yeah, Oh yeah)

(Beauty's only skin deep, yeah, yeah, yeah.)
Ooo
(Beauty's only skin deep, oh yeah.)
Yes it is.

My friends ask, what do I see in you
But it goes deeper than the eye can view.
You have a pleasin' personality
And that's an ever lovin' rare quality.
Now show me a girl, a girl that's fine
And I'll choose the one with true lovin' every time.

I know that...
(Beauty's only skin deep, yeah, yeah, yeah)
And I believe that...
Beau- know that beauty's only skin deep.

So if you're lookin' for a lover. (Oh yeah)
Don't judge a book by it's cover. (Oh yeah)
She may be fine on the outside (Oh yeah)
But so untrue on the inside. (Oh yeah)
Ooo

Well folks, I'm sitting here with Kitty on my lap -- her head draped over my left arm -- she's trying her best to prevent me from typing and she is doing a really great job of it...

Maybe she doesn't want me writing about our  relationship...   Maybe she doesn't want the word to leak out...   Maybe she doesn't want the word to spread that cats make the best little lovers...   But they DO, but I suppose if you are reading KittyBLOG I'm not telling you anything you don't already know...   Happy New Year to you and y-o-u-r little lover...
