Our Friend Sparkle

The Human helped me draw this little picture of Sparkle tonight because we love her, and we will miss her, and we want to remember and honor her. 
We think maybe there will be an extra star in the sky tonight.

Amorous Avatars

When CK popped in for a little visit this afternoon, we went for a stroll around Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park.

We cuddled for awhile near the Chinese Pavillion and took a nice warm nap in the grass.

It was delightful!

Please Don't Think

that because I am accepting your pettings I have forgiven you for returning to work.

What do those stoopy teenagers offer that *I* cannot do better?

This & That & That & This

I want to thank the wonderful kitties at 15andmeowing for giving me this really fun award! I must link to my favorite song (easy peasy) and choose some blogs to share this award with (less easy peasy). It's supposed to be ten but I am going to cheat and choose five. They are:
The Celestial Kitties
Emma and Buster
Lone Star Cats
Mickey's Musings
                                                  Savannah's Paw Tracks

Okay, *one* of our favorites is Van Morrison's Brown-Eyed Girl which you can listen to here! Any Kitty Furiend who does not yet have this award, please take it and share your favorite song with us.

My Beloved Katie Isabella invited me and the Human to pawticipate in the Writing Process Blog Tour. We are almost too embarrassed to respond, and if we didn't love her and her mommy so much, we probably wouldn't, but the plain fact is we are putty in their hands, so here goes:

Question 1:  What are we working on?
We are working on getting a post up alllllllmost every day, though not so successfully (we have posted 203 times in 230 days. By my way of thinking we have missed practically a whole month! I can hardly bear to think of how these stats will look by Christmas!) I don't call that "almost every day" but the Human just tells me to shut my furry little mouf.
Question 2:  Why do we write what we do?
Well, we try (with some modest success) to be funny and lighthearted 98% of the time. We think almost every kitty and Human can use a smile in their day and if we manage that, it's all good. Also, the Human has too much serious stuffs like Hamlet and accreditation reports in her day already to try to write thoughtful little essays like some of our favorite bloggers do.
Question 3:  How does our writing process work?
The Human comes home from work. We look through pictures we've recently taken. (She almost never creates posts ahead of time so we are always posting on the fly.)  We purray inspiration will strike. If it doesn't within 10 minutes or so, then *I* don't get to have a blog post that day. Does that sound fair to you? No, I don't think so either. But, in that totally meaningless and irritating modern cliché, It is what it is.

Kitties, Can You Spell "Microclimate"?

—> See this pretty blue sky? This is the neighborhood where the Human works.

—> See this ominous solid white fog bank? Yes, just over that hill is our neighborhood, where the  don't shine.

(Almost) B/W Sunday

The Human may imagine she is out and about, away from the Watchful Eye of the Kitty . . . but Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!

A ManCat & His Croc

As many of you know, last weekend was the Cat Scouts' sojourn to the Bayou. I may or may not have had a few too many mancatly adult beverages before I caught this great souvenir for the Human. Sunday morning, I teleported home in my Tunnel, but when I got here, I was shocked to see the following transformation:
To be honest, I really can't remember Saturday night very well. Do you think Austin was just pulling a fast one on his poor hungover roomie? Or could the croc have somehow mutated during the teleportation?
