Friday Night Cat Blogging: Stormy Weather

It’s time for the boys to shine. They’re both tired. It was raining so hard this morning that I thought I was in So. Florida. I think there was some hail mixed in. The boys were NOT amused. We’re between storms at the moment, but the next one is starting to move in.

As a bonus, I’ve included a happy little video about a kitty who gets a new prosthetic paw. Please pardon the advertisement.

The maker of the prosthetic paw is Orthopets.  According to their site:

OrthoPets was founded in 2003 to become the first Veterinary Orthotic & Prosthetic clinic in the world.

The Hills of San Francisco

The hills of San Francisco, with the Bay to the East and  Pacific to the West, offer many opportunities to enjoy magical beginnings and ends. As in dreams, many of those locations reveal themselves at the end of winding stairways, as unexpected treasures, often breathtaking.
People who live here share these places and moments with reverence and the instant friendliness of those who respect life in all its forms: their four legged friends abound and welcome newcomers and natives alike.
We took the following pictures at sunrise, a wonderful beginning to yet another day.  Bernal Heights is located just south of San Francisco’s Mission District.   For more photos and a bit of news about the area, visit Bernalwood, a local blog.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!.  Rather than go into the history of this day,  I’m going to talk about my love:  I met Lastech back in November of 2001.  He cracked a joke about cats and that was all she wrote.  LOL!  We’ve been together since.  I had to wait until middle age to find him, but you won’t hear me complain.

Soooooooo I’m going to post a vid or two.  They best express how I feel.

The first is by Barry Louis Polisar, who writes children’s songs and this one was used in the movie “Juno”.   My hope for today is that our readers have as much happiness as we do.

Note: In spite of what you see on the video, Rod McKuen did NOT write this song. He translated it from the French. The song was written by Jaques Brel.  I couldn’t find an embed of it that was good enough.  Dame Shirley Bassey did an excellent cover of the song.

Friday Night Cat Blogging with Sith Cats and Cat Sith

Well, it’s another Friday.  Tonight we have some trivia, some humor, and the boys, of course.

First, the cat trivia:

Cat Sìth (Scot.) or Cat Sidhe (Irish) comes from Celtic mythology.  According to Wikipedia:

Legend has it that the spectral cat haunts the Scottish Highlands. Some common folklore suggested that the Cat Sìth was not a fairy, but a transformed witch.

According to Celtic Myth Podshow:

The cat, whether wild or domestic, is sacred to the Goddess in Celtic tradition, appearing in Irish, Welsh and Breton folklore. But it is in Scotland that is found a particularly powerful connection. A number of Scottish clans held the cat as their totem animal: those of MacIntosh, MacNeishe and MacNicol the domestic cat, and the MacBain the wild cat. The cat-people, a Pictish tribe known as the Kati, lived in Caithness, the ness or promontory of the cats, and in Sutherland in Gaelic is the Cataobh – cat country.

Note:  The MacBain in bold is my doing.  It’s my clan.  The clan motto is touch not the catt bott a targe which translates to touch not the cat without a shield. 🙂

Sooooooooo what happens when we mix that with a bit of Star Wars?  Well, instead of Cat Sìth we get Sith cats.

Hmmmmm, so what does Tito think of all this? As a young kitten he bored easily and fell asleep. He just wasn’t a Star Wars fan.

Kitsune, on the other hand, adores Star Wars as do I.
