Oops, she did it again, only this time not with her brother.

Yes, my female cat is with child, er kittens, again. As she is nearly due to give birth, I thought I'd put out the word for anyone within my driving area who is in the market for an adorable little furball with sharp pointy teeth and razor sharp claws.

Her name is Smokey, or it was until she gave birth the first time. Now we call her momma kitty. Yes, we pride ourselves on originality here. And,Yes, I know. We should have gotten her fixed and we did try hard to do so, which ended up being a huge fiasco.

I blame my husband for the cat being pregnant. No, this is not a startling case of cross-species breeding that you'd find in the tabloids, this is a case of him setting the cat free in hopes it wouldn't come home again. I was on vacation at the time and had no knowledge this was happening, or I would have reminded him that while the male cats had been to the vet to have their bits and pieces whacked off, the female was still intact and therefore in danger of procreating once again.

And here we are. According to my calculations, she's due to give birth any day now. She's a beautiful Russian Blue and since we don't know the father this time around, the kittens should be an interesting mix, arriving with an IQ higher than inbred southern politicians the previous kittens.

So, anyone? Anyone?


  1. Gorgeous moggy, why are your US Russian blues so similar to our UK Blue Burmese?
    Can't imagine what took you to Toasty's Futon, but hail and well met, or ave atque vale if latin is your bag? I supose I can be condescending because I have done nursery and primary and secondary and college and just taken my junior dependents to university. They are wonderful people - my hope for the future resides in them. To whom do we attribute the end of our civilisation? Unequivocally, those tossers who eschew reason for faith, doubt for certainty, humanity for tribalism and integrity for influence.

    I think that our Smokey could be insulted, if he had the IQ to be insulted. He's still trying to nurse on the dog.

  3. But who is smarter, Smokey or the Dog?
    I have the dubious pleasure of having to trim the claws of three of our cats before they go to a show on Saturday. It is a novel method of obtaining decorative cicatrices.
    Keep on blogging, I'll look in now and again.

  4. I'm not sure who is smarter. Cassie is a loveable pooch, but not too bright. I need to clip her nails, or better yet, have it done somewhere. I'm never good at that sort of thing. I admire those of you that are.

    Janet, that first batch of kittens surely isn't going to win any mensa prizes. One of them that we gave to another lady ate some part of plastic tubing and had to have surgery to save it's life. Lots and lots of $$$. Just be glad the only weird thing that your smokey does is try to nurse on the dog!

  5. She's lovely. Shame you don't live a little nearer to Brigg. My friend has just put a deposit down on a British Blue kitten. She'd have loved one of yours.

  6. Yes, I'll have them all if they turn out to be Russian Blues because they are the bestest of all cats. Only you live half a million miles away and we're not allowed to have cats anyway.

A Poem to an Abusive Man

I've been doing a bit of research on abuse, domestic violence and how it usually ends. It's not pretty and it's painful and I hurt every time I read another woman's tale of horror.

Did you know that emotional abuse is as detrimental as physical abuse? And that most emotional abusers continue on to become physical abusers? I didn't. I do now. I found a site where formerly abused women, on the path to recovery from their abusers, have written poems. This one below is one that haunted me.

Thank You

You wooed me with poetry
I bit on the hook
Had I only first read
The name of the book

I would have avoided
The very first page
For pages kept turning
Revealing the rage

The ups were a great high
The ride was a bash
But I rode with my eyes closed
To avoid seeing the crash
I knew it would come soon
But I never knew when
The rage and the leaving
And the path to the end

You had to control things
Determined you would
Emotionally destroying me
Every way that you could

Elderly Abuse

I heard a loud thud the other morning around 3:30 a.m. I checked my monitor but he'd once again turned it to the wall so I was unable to see if he was still in bed. I went downstairs right behind my sweet husband and dad was on the living room floor moaning and holding his head. He'd fallen. Hard.

The first picture is the day of the fall. The second is the day after. The black eye keeps blossoming. He has a gash on his head, hidden by his silver hair and he skinned his shoulder/arm. He's a mess.

Was he using his walker? Nope. 85 year old toddlers cannot be told what to do. Or rather, they can be told what to do, they simply won't comply. Ever. In fact they get down right angry and throw fits. It's not pretty.

His physical therapist came to the house the next day and strongly told him to use his walker EACH TIME HE STOOD UP. Has he? Nope. Nyet. He was very angry with me yesterday because I kept asking him to use his walker. Also, I asked him i…



Back on the horse
Monkey on his back
I see no light
Not even a crack
Back to delusions
Back to the lies
I see through his words
He can't hear my cries

Back into his soul
Back into his veins
The poison he pours
Dark liquid his chains

Backed into a corner
Heartbroken and torn
Back into the needle
The eye of the storm

Back to the wall
Soul bruised torn and broken
Back to my pain
His eyes half open

Back into the horror
Will he ever come back
Back into the nightmare
A needle in a sack

Back into his childhood
I loved him with fury
Looking back on his life
His choices my jury

How did this happen
Back to evil and sin
How can he do this
Lines on his skin

Back to my weeping
Back to my sorrow
My son, my love,
Has no more tomorrows
