Miss Nylablue and the Calendar Boy!

Our friend Miss Nylablue and her mom Miss Sherri Ellen need lots of love and support at this time. She has become such a special pal and because she is embarking on her farewell journey very soon, I twiddled the knobs on the space/time continuum thingy and teleported myself over to see her and administer a snuggle or two.


Comforting snuggles
Is always good for friendship.
Leads to restful nap!

Today I also have the honour to be the Cat Blogosphere calendar pin-up! I thought I would show my best hunting pose! Check out those glinty eyes! Talk about focus, I am practically catatonic!

We do have the sads today, as our sweet blogging friend Miss Nylablue, after fighting illness so hard for so long, will be leaving us very very soon .... too soon!


Please remember her and her mum, Sherri Ellen as they spend their last couple of days together and if you can, go and leave a comforting word on their blog. Thank you so much. x

Caturday Art


Here I am thinking deep thoughts and surveying my catdom. 

The picture was done on the piZap app using one of the elebenty gazillion filter effects. The Staff has no idea which one, because by the time she settled on one, she'd forgotten what she was supposed to be doing anyway!! However, it looks very colourful, like the sun is reflecting through a prism. Of course, it doesn't do anything to enhance my already purrfect tuxie bod! Just kidding ;)

A poem of apology .... sort of!


I know that I've not been around.
It might appear I've gone to ground.
I blame the peep, she is no good,
Not even there to give me food! (HUH?) 
What can I do to rectify 
The situation .. my oh my? 

To me the problem's very clear, 
Her heart's not in it now, I fear! 
We need to talk, there is no doubt, 
And one of us will get a clout! 
It won't be me, I know for sure, 
As I’m the one with sharpened claw! 

The moral of this story is ..
Don't play around with Austin's biz.
Keep blogging on, no matter what,
Pretend you are a polyglot.
Together we will conquer this
If no one tries to take the ...... mickey!

The End

Remember, Remember ....

"Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot..."

Way, way back in 1605, on the 5th November, this geezer Guy Fawkes and some mates were caught in the cellars of the Houses of Parliament in London with several dozen barrels of gunpowder. It seems they were rather peeved because the King, James 1st, was Protestant when they wanted a Catholic king. They thought they would blow up parliament to make their point. Do you know? Things haven't really changed that much! People are still trying to kill each other all over the place :(


Guy Fawkes was subsequently tried as a traitor with his co-conspirators for plotting against the government. He was tried in London by a Judge Popham. He was sentenced to death and the form of the execution was one of the most horrendous ever practised (hung, drawn and quartered) which reflected the serious nature of the crime of treason.

What really, really gets my goat here is that ever since then, on and around 5th November, people have bonfires and let off really really noisy fireworks at all hours of the night. Some of them even burn effigies of Guy Fawkes, though that was more when The Staff was a little girl, in, like, 1606! 

Between you and me, I spend an awful lot of time UTB this time of year!

Dona Nobis Pacem


Jesus said "But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you" Matt 5:39-42 ESV
