Effing Feline says Bah humbug! #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, hate all the many excuses humans make for humiliating cats. That’s why I say to the Easter holiday, “Bah, humbug!” In Constellation XXI, Sienna Dukelsky captains a tugship, outer space’s answer to a tugboat. She is guiding an incoming ship captained by Crispin Hunt, her first and best lover. Last week, she […]

Effing Feline, therapy animal #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am a great therapy animal. It’s not something I do all the time, of course — I’m far too busy for that, what with writing, blogging, and napping — but we cats love it when our pet humans are under the weather. Their laps remain stationary for longer than usual so we […]

Effing Feline loves music #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, love music. I didn’t used to, because frankly Mr V’s oboe is way too loud for a sensitive cat like moi. (I love that word moi. It sounds so much like meow.) What changed my mind? My rival, Twiggles the dog, actually takes music lessons — that what Mr V calls it […]

Effing Feline “ties” one on #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am no ordinary cat . . .  but then anyone with any sense must realize that immediately. How many cats are able to blog? But let me tell you, in case you didn’t already know, that my fame and glory have spread around the globe. I’ll tell you about my latest accolade […]

Effing Feline feels no guilt #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, chose this week’s snippet only because Ed, aka Mr Valentine, says it’s crucial to understanding the heroine of Constellation XXI. Personally, though, I don’t understand it at all. Guilt? What the dogfart is that? To quote a famous cat (who really wrote those plays), guilt is “but a poor player that struts […]

Effing Feline hunts #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, made a fascinating discovery when Ed, my pet human, moved the bed where he and Mrs Valentine sleep. There are things to hunt under there! For a mighty hunter like me, this is a world-shaking discovery. Our house has no mice — I’ve never even seen a real mouse — so unfortunately […]

Effing Feline naps #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, have an extremely long attention span — for a cat, that is — and right now I’m concentrating hard at being literary so I can choose another snippet for your Ed-fication. (See what I did there?) I want each snippet to be the best I can possibly find, so — Uh, excuse […]

Effing Feline, astronaut! #wewriwa

  I, Effing Feline, like my pet human’s stories about outer space — but wouldn’t they be astronomically better with feline heroes and heroines? Just imagine! Today’s snippet from Constellation XXI continues picks up shortly after last week’s. After positioning her tugship to intercept any spaceships coming in through her sector, she looks at family […]

Effing Feline is a tulip #wewriwa

  I, Effing Feline, want wooden shoes. Why, you ask? Because I learned that my cousin, Pamela Kaat, wears them. Her pet humans are Ed’s son and his girlfriend, who live in The Netherlands. Over there the law is that all cats must wear wooden shoes. It’s true, I swear. Pamela told me so herself […]

Effing Feline gets a Valentine #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, got a Valentine and it was from . . . from . . . Twiggles the Dog! Not only a Valentine, but a byootiful stuffed heart that’s perfect for digging my kitty claws into. And not only that, it’s filled with, with — catnip! I don’t know what to say. I didn’t get […]
