Effing improves Frosty

I, Effing Feline, told you last week how the song Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer should actually be Ildephonse the Red-Nosed Kit Cat. Today I set the record straight about another Christmas song that fails to give cats their due. Here’s a clue to the song I’m talking about: Before I disclose the name of the […]

Effing Feline and Ildephonse: Countdown Day -1

I, Effing Feline, have gotten interested in tracking down my ancestors, and I’ve discovered some cats who are worthy of my bloodline. This cat has suffered from horrible press, with some random ungulate stealing his glory. All cats, but few humans, realize that the ungulate was a mere spectator, but he hoofed it quickly to […]

Effing Feline resembles a clarinet

I, Effing Feline, have gotten interested in tracking down my ancestors, and I’ve discovered some cats who are worthy of my bloodline. Today’s ancestor comes from the Russian Blue line of the family, though I can’t recall any contact with President Trump’s campaign. It’s the cat from Peter and the Wolf. The music is by […]

Effing Feline has a new hobby

I, Effing Feline, have gotten interested in tracking down my ancestors, and I’ve discovered some cats who are worthy of my bloodline. Like Bucky B. Katt. He’s described on his Wiki page as selfish, cynical, and lazy — my hero! Some say Bucky isn’t real, a mere creation for the Get Fuzzy comic strip, but such […]

Effing Feline is here. Or not.

I, Effing Feline, haven’t managed to track down any of my sisters yet, but I’ve discovered some cats who are worthy of being related to me. For example, here is science’s most famous feline and a worthy relative for me, a cat who has a science fiction writer for a pet: Shrodinger’s Cat: Oops! She’s […]

Effing Feline seeks his roots

I, Effing Feline, haven’t managed to track down any of my sisters yet (click here for the background), but I’ve discovered some cats who surely must be related to me. Today I’ll show you the first of my famous relatives. Joan of Arcat is one of the most famous European cats. She’s considered a heroine […]

Effing Feline is a pig

I, Effing Feline, have the house to myself for the day. You see, Mr V’s off lollygagging at a writer’s conference. I’m left with one of those feeders that dispense as much cat food as I can eat. I consider it a challenge. Can I finish the entire container of food before he returns? Watch me […]

Effing Feline Googles himself

I, Effing Feline, figured out last week that I must have sisters. I’ve started searching for them. Imagine how awed they’ll be when they learn that I, the world’s most literary cat, am their brother! But I’m having trouble finding them. Can you believe that Google is utterly useless when it comes to searching for cats […]

Effing Feline has great litter

I, Effing Feline, just learned that I have sisters. Sisters! I feel like I’ve slept leapt onto the pages of one of my pet human’s books. Talk about a plot twist. I know this because Google says cats have more than one kitten in a litter — but clearly, no other males could stand comparison with […]

Effing Feline’s unfaves

I, Effing Feline, told you last week about some of my favorite things. Now some unfaves: dogs cats that are cuter than me people who think other cats are cuter than me food that isn’t meat or fish dogs And now, a snippet from Ed’s sci fi romance, Escapee, featuring the beloved skoot. Captain Dukelsky wants Catt […]
