Effing Feline’s favorite things

I, Effing Feline, was listening to Mrs V’s music, and it got me thinking. It was from The Sound of Music, and this is the line that got me thinking. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens these are a few of my favorite things. The song’s unimportant, but what is important are my favorite […]

Effing Feline is hissed

I, Effing Feline, am hissed. Ed, my pet human, went to Toronto. He brought back candy for Mrs V and for his daughter and grandsons. But for me? Nothing. Nothing! Hiss to you, Mr V! But to show I’m a bigger cat than he is, I’ll present a snippet from his sci fi romance, Escapee. Despite his unfeeling […]

Effing Feline mocks Sadie

I, Effing Feline, am bereft. Ed, my pet human, has abandoned me to see his son’s dog, Sadie, in some place called Toronto. I suppose he’s visiting with his sons, too — but it’s the dog that bothers me. I’ve been telling cat jokes, but today I’m switching to jokes that make fun of !&*$*# […]

Effing Feline acts nice

I, Effing Feline, shall continue to soften my image by telling you more cat jokes. Did you hear about the cat who drank 5 bowls of water? She set a new lap record. What has more lives than a cat? A frog. It croaks every night. What side of a cat has the most fur? […]

Effing Feline Is not Nasty!

I, Effing Feline, need to clean up my act. Not my litter; my public image. You see, last week Ed commented that I was ‘The Cat Called Ove,’ a take-off on the name of a novel about a nasty man called Ove.  I am not nasty! To prove it, I’ll be sharing some cat jokes. […]

Effing Feline hisses

I, Effing Feline, hate the kitten next door. My sometimes friend, Twiggles the dog, is allowed outside even though I’m not. Yesterday the kitten came right up to the floor-to-ceiling window and drank from Twiggles’ water bowl — and Ed thought it was cute!  He took pictures! Grr, hiss! I’m sharing another snippet from Mr V’s […]

Effing Feline spreads tuna fish

I, Effing Feline, am washing myself. Ed gave me the remnants of his tuna sandwich, and I love tuna.  Now I’m washing myself to spread the glorious aroma all over my body. I’m sharing another snippet from Mr V’s SF romance, Escapee. After their remote mining moon is attack by enemies, Catt Sayer, the crusty captain […]

Effing Feline wants the kitten to scoot

I, Effing Feline, told you that the neighbors have a cute new kitten. Yesterday the kitty hopped over the wall into MY yard. Worse, it paraded up and down in front of the floor to ceiling window in the family room begging to be let in. The dumb kitten wanted into MY house. I hissed […]

My spiritual home #mfrw

It’s all downhill from here; we’re more than halfway through the year-long Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. For week 27, the writing prompt is: The Most Beautiful Place I’ve Been This is the easiest yet. Banff. Not the port in Scotland, the national park in Canada. The first time I saw those mountains, awe filled my […]
