A King's Work Is Never Done:
The Viceroys, Chapter 7


Kozmo ~ Telegraph Hill (1) A very fine view--maybe he can even see Nellie's Realm
Queen Katie Isabella ~ Financial District (2) The Trustworthy Queen deserves to rule the Finances of my fair city!
Shaggy & Scout ~ Portola Shaggy & Scout may also romp in McLaren Park, adjacent to their territory.
Neytiri & her Ducky ~ Ocean View (3)  Ducky will have regular access to ocean swims, though Neytiri may prefer digging in the sand.
Quint ~ Visitacion Valley  Vis Valley could use a good artist to teach the grafitti'ers a thing or six.
Leo ~ The Dumbarton Bridge* See below
Swami Zoe, Kuruk, Nalle & Apollo ~ Co-Viceroys of Noe Valley They will share dominion over Noe Valley, which includes the Human's school & so must be well-protected!
Derby and Ducky ~ South Beach/SOMA (South Of MArket)  D&D will bring some much-needed class to this Hipster Doofus neighborhood.
The LadyCats of Jacqueline's Cat House ~ Union Square (4)  Though small, the Union Square area is home to SF's chi-chi'est retail establishments. Who better to govern Tiffany's than Halle, Calle and Sukki?

* The Dumbarton Bridge is about 30 miles south of the city, but we think it wise to have it guarded 24/7 by a semi-responsible Viceroy to prevent sneak attacks by Silicon Valley Felines. Leo will have quite an area to govern and defend:

N.B.  Various of the Viceroys have raised questions concerning salaries (as if!), the collection of taxes (hmmmmm), and such things as outfits and weapons. The King must cogitate further upon these topics (well, except for the whole salary dealio. In a word: No.)

  1. We are honored to be viceroys of such a large territory. Including waterfront for Ducky!

  2. It's all looking very complicated, dude. Wethinks you need to creat a blog badge for us lucky kitties - maybe with paw prints instead of stars, to show we are all lords and masters of the great Western Realms, and totally obeisant to you of course.

  3. Oh yeah, we thought about taxes, but not our salaries. FYI, we take treats and noms in lieu of actual money :)

  6. I am THRILLED with this very real and utterly important duty of the Viceroy position just granted me. I will look after your finances as though they were my own, so help me Admiral! My books will be available for inspection at a blink of a jewel-like eye. Thank you for your trust. <3

  9. I kind of think there should at least be a ready supply of the nip, though. What do you think?

    Purrs,
    Nissy

    PS. Peeps could grow the nip in their back yards and we viceroys could send out nip collectors to collect it.

  11. Oh thank you, thank you mighty and gracious King Spitty! My Mama grew up here and went to a Catholic school. Which School is your Mommy's?

  12. Spitty, we think a token of gratitude from the King would be most appropriate...perhaps some nip or vine??

  13. Spitty just to serve your Lordship is pay enough! And now your city is protected from mischief and mayhem.

  14. I like your map more than the common google-thingy. Can you ask Oliver please if he has a nice room for two people? If, I would send him my staff!

  17. Mauricio mentioned you in his blog today. We think viceroys should wear nice sashes with the name of their territory on them. Just a suggestion. We don't need salaries, but a treat or two now and then would be nice. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Fiona, Giulietta, Lisbeth, Astrid and Calista Jo

  21. No salary? Not even a few pieces of nip?

  22. Romping in the adjacent park is a real bonus for Scout! He loves to stalk the wildlife, and I love to nap under the trees. Not that we won't be valiant viceroys for you, of course, Spitty! -Shaggy

  23. Wow, all the Viceroyships are really coming together, Spitty. What a wise (and well-protected!) King you are!

  24. Spitty, I am happy to report that all is well in the Hayes Valley. I accompanied my dad to the Biergarten where he enjoyed a pint and some bratwurst.

  25. Quint doesn't need a salary. Just the thought of whipping the graffiti-ers into a frenzy of beautifying Vis Valley with their creative art, instead of mindlessly tagging every last little thing, is pay enough! Thank you, King Spitty. May I do you and the land proud! But if any extra fuzzy toys come your way.... Purrs...

  26. King Spittola, I have had all of your Books checked and double checked by independent sources after carefully examining them myself- and they are all in excellent shape. Your Kingdom in in perfect condition.

    I will continue to keep a watchful eye on expenditures and against any who think they might be privy to your monies.

    Queen Katie Isabella, Ministry of Finance Kingdom of Spitty.
