Guest post from Kate

I have to do everything around here: shed on the towels, eat unattended butter, keep the insect community in check and stare needlessly at blank spaces at the wall until the roundears are half mad with distraction.

Yesterday she said to the big roundears, the tom, " I really want to blog again but I don't know how to start after a long absence." And he said, "Well, get Kate to do it. She's blogged before."


She really was sick. It was like a crime scene here for a while. I wasn't allowed to use my claws, not even in a nice way.

Mostly I didn't pay much attention because, well, she's not a mouse and frankly I am a cat. My attention span is limited.

But she's not sick anymore and she has more scarves which means I have even better warmth and insulation when I sleep in the good room.

She went away for a while and I got beaten up by a tomcat with one ear and no respect. I'm better now and she's come home. She bought me a present which I completely ignored.

"It's the year of the Dragon," she said, "maybe Kate could blog about that."

Oh, as if. AS IF. It is only ever the Year of the Cat as far as I'm concerned because 1) I can lick a dragon any day and 2) dragons are mythical and I'm not.


  1. Currently I am interrupting my morning snooze in the winter sunbeam to respond because She is busy having anxiety attacks about this thing "tenure". I can hear her heart beat quicker every time she says it. A pox on my superior hearing! Because, I am obliged, of course, to calm her by lying across the keyboard and looking my most adorable at these moments it really does get tiresome quickly.

    I'm sure She would want me to extend her heartfelt good wishes for a return to health and vigor but, really, my sympathies lie with you, Kate. Imagine having to actually write a blog post in addition to all of your regular duties. Humph. Still, lovely to hear from you. I hope your She returns soon since I'm certain my She has missed her in the StyleNation (as She calls it--I'm rolling my eyes right now). If only so you can get back to lying in sunbeams yourself. I highly recommend it.

  2. I've been wondering how you've been doing. Sorry to hear it's been no picnic. I, too, send my wishes for your return to health. And thanks, Kate, for the update.

  3. D-Med, Kate has spent the day in her own personal sunbeam, only exerting herself to lift her head and sneer at me occasionally. I wonder if our cats should get together and start their own blog.

    Hello Jen! Thank you so much for checking in. I'm very well - your good wishes are appreciated. I hope you're well too and not been rained out by this rather lousy summer.

    Hi Freeda! I've missed blogging too. Thank you for coming back; hope all is going well for you. Incidentally, I love your Snow Angels!
