Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice*

Hello, Kitties! Today I am on lovely Mackinac Island with the even-more lovely and beauteous Zoey of the Island Cats. Now, honestly, it was Wally and Ernie, those Big Bad Boys, who yearned for an outing in the FURRari, but seriously? Would I want to spend a romantic day in this gorgeous place with them? It is to laugh!
It seems that ordinarily cars are not permitted here, only bikes and horse-drawn carriages, but let's get real: Do you think they would really keep out Spitty and Zoey and the FURRari?  Of course not! So we were granted special purrmission. 
Here we are at the gingerbready Murray Hotel where we consumed a fine cocktail and a tasty luncheon. We cavorted around the Island and caught a few little woodland creatures, which we ended up letting go, since we had already dined so well. After a delightful nap and snuggle we headed for Zoey's, where I delivered her into the giant paws of her brofur Ernie. He and Wally were clearly envious of her adventure, but I just waved and chuckled as I sped away!

Gratuitous Spitty Pin-Up Shot

  1. Spitty, Salem says the G.C. is a fine destination...they proly don't allow FURRaris at the bottom, though. Say, you don't drive like Toonces, do you?

  7. My esteemed King Spitty etc etc. I of course did not mean to cause offence regarding the growing royal girth - nor that of the generous Miss Salem, whom her own Screechy Lady calls 'The Whale'. Remember here in Finland an extra bit of insulation from fish oil is a good thing and you should see my fattist comments as a compliment.
    Yours in apology, Punapippuri, KKCofF (N)

  8. Adorable, gorgeous, handsome, so snuggle-able! If only.. sigh But yes, you are adorable!
    Love the trip, driving where no cars are allowed! Somehow, I can see them letting YOU!

    Star says: I am so sorry that I made you look bad in front of your human... How can I make it up to you, Spitty dear? Shall I pop over and lick your sweet face and nuzzle your ears?

  10. So how many lovely ladies are gonna get a ride in your Furrari? Jonesie says she's up for an adventure if you would be willing to drive her to some famous botanical gardens or something like that.

    And Spitty, when I call you a player, I mean it in the nicest way...you are a mancat that likes to play the field. No tying you down to a single ladycat.

  22. I've very envious of your road trips. I'm a bit of a homebody, but you have inspired me to venture away from home for some short trips.

    I'd like to see you maneuver that Furrari down Lombard Street.

  26. Once again I've had to hide most of your post from the heartbroken Snapoline, else she would snap at me because I'm close. I'm pretty sure this breaks some Bro Code.
