“Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong … Continue reading Ragdoll Cat (Temporarily)
Some of us is. Some of us ain't.
. . . because my brain is fried. When we tried to medicate William last night, a pill fell into the pit between the seat of my recliner and the arm, and we weren't able to locate it. It's in there somewhere, or it fell through onto the floor under the chair. After a cursory … Continue reading A Disjointed Post . . .

Why I am not a prolific writer: Same old excuse, but better than none.
I thought I would write all twenty-six posts without them--I refrained from using them for Day C--but today I lack the vitality necessary to think of anything new. So on Day V I fall back on Cats. William and Ernest. As I recently posted, Ernest and I are having a disagreement over seating positions. My … Continue reading V Is for Vitality, Lack of: #atozchallenge
Probably no one man should have as many dogs in his life as I have had, but there was more pleasure than distress in them for me except in the case of an Airedale named Muggs.

Christmas Compromise, 2009 Posted on Whiskertips, December 24, 2009, when William and Ernest were still young adults. If you read my earlier post, our Christmas treehas been the subject of intense, but not unexpected, conflict. As soon as the tree lit up, so did William and Ernest.William had to be physically restrained from chewing … Continue reading A Tale of Two Christmases
Much as they spend their evenings.
I believe I've fallen behind. My Day B (April 2) post went online about five minutes before Day C started in my time zone. Now, less than four hours before Day D begins, I'm just starting on Day C. Technically, I'm okay--observing the letter of the law (take some time to chuckle over that before … Continue reading #AtoZChallenge Day C: Contrariwise
I'm collapsed on the bed at the Holiday Inn Express in downtown Fort Worth. I am tired. Between sentence #1 and sentence #2, I stopped and tried to scrape a little black bug off the side of the monitor--it was at the very edge of the screen, and I had no idea where it came … Continue reading The Life of an Artiste and Cat H—, Part II
