Meowy Catmas!
It's that time of year again! Here's the 2020 Catmas card!

The Catmas card tradition started in 200-. Holy Bast! We've been doing this for twenty years!

Writing Progress
Yes, I'm still working on the novel, but it's slow. One of my biggest problems was getting my main character into an investigation. It was reading like a bad Mary Sue. You know the type: She shows up, bats her long, luscious lashes (all the better to show off her unique shade of violet eyes) at the man in charge, and she's instantly put in command. 

To be honest, it wasn't that bad, but without going into details, there was a distinct lack of motivation, or solid r...

Friday Is For Felines
It's a cool enough day today (a rarity in the Texas summer), that I opened the blast curtain to the patio door and let the cats enjoy the day.

They've both been sunning and playing there all morning.

These kitties are growing. If you follow me on Facebook, you can track their progress....

Some Kittens Have Names!
Two kittens, in Amazon boxes:

Amazing what Amazon delivers.

So, some kittens have names. We've named the Aby Daenerys and the tortie Arya.

Say Hello To The Newest Kitten!
Finally, the Abyssinian has arrived!

Isn't she a cutie?

Of course, the first thing she did was find a high perch. What do you expect from an Abyssinian?

More later, including kitten names!...

Meet The Kitten
You knew we couldn't be without cat for long. Meet the new kitten!

tortie1.jpg

She's a muted tortoiseshell, and if you know us with cats, you know we don't have a name yet. We're kind of waiting on her to tell us. Names usually become apparent to us at some point.

Have some more kitten pictures!

RIP, Midnight

Midnight Louise joined our household in September of 2000. Each of the cats has had different personalities, but Midnight had some interesting quirks. She came to be known as Geek Kitty for her mixed feelings of curiosity toward and healthy fear of electronic gear. Whenever we got new tech in the house, she had to be there to check it out. When it got right down to it, she just w...

2017 Catmas Card
The 2016 Catmas Card has arrived! And with it, I've redesigned the Catmas Card pages. The design only dated to the year 2000. How bad could it have been? 

It's fun looking at the archives to see both how my modest graphics skills have improved over the years. The execution of our ideas depends not only on those skills, but the mood of the cats. And sometimes my archive of cat pictures comes in very handy. And then there are...
