Beginnings: RUFF VS. FLUFF

I have the most beautiful voice. I use it to say just one thing: Me-ow! Have you ever heard anything so lovely? And it starts with “me”! How great is that? I love starting with me. In fact, I have no time for anything that doesn’t start with me and keep on going with me right until it ends, with me. Me—or actually ME—is how I think of myself, but you can call me Queenie, like all the other humans. Call me Queenie—but don’t expect me to come, or perform some stupid trick, or pay the slightest attention to you. You have my permission to look at me all you want. I don’t blame you. I’m a thing of beauty.

Probably this is a good moment to describe myself. Where to even start? With my tail? Kind of cool, starting at the end. And I’m cool, no doubt about that. Mom always says, “That Queenie is one cool cat.” Not my mom, who I really don’t remember, but the kids’ mom, who has another name I can’t be bothered to come up with at the moment, and anyway she’s just Mom around these parts.

These parts are what humans call snow country, although we didn’t have any snow yet and it was getting close to Christmas. I knew it was close to Christmas because Elrod hauled a big tree into the Big Room and, after a lot of grunting and fumbling around plus muttered words that won’t be repeated here, got it set up in front of the fireplace. I myself was watching this performance from one of my favorite spots, namely on the top shelf of the bookcase in the corner. Books can be quite comfortable. Were you aware of that already? What do humans actually know? I’m afraid the true answer might disappoint.

    Happy Beginnings day! We like Queenie’s comment, “Books can be quite comfortable.” We agree, in more ways than one.
    Hop into a great day.

    Staff or others who “know” cats: Does Queenie epitomize “cat thought”?

    Good morning all.

    We signed up to bring a dish for a picnic this holiday weekend. We brought deviled eggs. After a lengthy silence, Beau snorted a belly laugh. Yeep!

    In some places “deviled” eggs are called deville or stuffed or angel eggs. The deviled simply means spicy.

    We have found the key to a good deviled egg is to have someone else make them snd then take the credit! Burp!
