Effing Feline’s greatest ambition #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am the kind of amazingly complex character you authors can only dream of creating. I have more depth than any cat who ever lived. I am a stable genius, yet also a fierce hunter — and I’m humble, to boot. But am I satisfied with my perfection? Never! I have yearnings, aspirations, […]

Effing Feline’s PSA #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, hate heat. I know, I know — most cats love heat so much they’ll lie on a radiator in a sunny window. All I can say is they’ve never done it in Arizona. I tried it . . . once. Here’s what I looked like afterward. Viewer discretion advised. If you have […]

Effing Feline’s favorite holiday? #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, wish you a happy Memorial Day! Of course, that’s an American holiday. If you’re in Canada, happy belated Victoria Day. (I hope you got your garden planted.) If you’re in England, happy Spring Bank Holiday. (Do humans, and not just banks, get the day off work?) For Australians, happy Reconciliation Day. (Is […]

Effing Feline, fearless #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, ain’t afraid of nothing! Except . . . Except Ed’s office wall. He’s got all sorts of weird stuff up there, all of it guaranteed to give a cat nightmares. A fish that tastes horrible because it’s made of cedar. (I know, I tried it.) A bird with a wooden beak that […]

Effing Feline loves naps #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am about to shock you, so hold onto your hair pieces. I sometimes take naps. Most cats do, of course, but I am such an exceptional specimen, a cat who has accomplished so much, that I know you’re thinking I work 16 hours a day, every day. But I am a BIG […]

Effing Feline asks why #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, chose a snippet today in which the surprised hero finds himself asking Why? It’s a question I often ask myself. Why don’t mice crawl into my food bowl at dinnertime? Why is a lap not automatically available whenever I wish for one? Why must I share a house with Twiggles the Dog? […]

Effing Feline worships Mother Earth #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, have a favorite lap in the whole world. It belongs to — No, not Ed. Sheesh — I have better taste than that. My favorite lap belongs to Mrs Valentine. (Ed has earned the title of Mr Valentine, you know.) She had her birthday recently. I’ll tell you when as soon as […]

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 […]
