I, Effing Feline, talked about my least favorite music last week, but I never got around to sharing my favorites. I don’t have many, and I’m sure you can understand why.  Most songs are about people not cats, which is ridiculous, and to make matters worse, music playback devices are all designed for human hands, […]

I, Effing Feline, have gotten e-mails about my favorite music. Well, actually I haven’t … but I should have. Don’t you people out there have the good sense to be guided by my tastes? My pet human, Ed Hoornaert, recently signed a contract for a third book in his Repelling the Invasion series. If you missed […]

I, Effing Feline, got excited when Ed Hoornaert, my pet human, said today was the start of a new year. Wow, I thought. None of the same old same old cat food — fresh salmon every day. A new bed — with a built-in radiator. And most importantly, no more Twiggles the dog! But no.  To […]

I, Effing Feline, have little time to write today. Too busy cleaning up for Christmas, since all four of Mr V’s children will be home for the holidays and I don’t want them to think I neglect my fur.  Here’s a picture of me, bathing: Since next Sunday is Christmas, this will be my last post […]

 The year in review Day two post Day three post Day four post From a personal point of view, 2016 was a year to forget. Dental work that interfered with my oboe playing and jeopardized my hold on first-chair status. Health issues for both my wife and myself.  And then of course the monumentally unpleasant presidential […]

“It’s not me I’m worried about. It’s Dr. Hentzle’s reputation. . . . Some say she should get an Order of Canada, and you know what that means, eh?” – from Newborn Jo Beaverpaw, the assassin clone in Newborn, has no idea about the Order of Canada. You probably don’t either.  No reason you should, unless […]
