The Returned Bijin, Spider Solitaire, DDT

January 28, 2017



Written by Beebee, the cat

Peace has come to our household between canines and felines and the one human, who is sitting in her chair with a cup of tea playing an umpteenth thousandth game of Spider Solitaire on her Android. What is it about that game she finds so compelling? I think it’s because she never loses – and it takes her mind off DDT who, in her estimation, never wins.

The Great Dane 13-month old puppy is on the couch not chewing on something right now because he knows the Missy will say “no.” The 18-month old, recently returned calico, Bijin, is sleeping next to the 12-month old black male terror, who just woke up to yawn. There are two elder canines and felines upstairs choosing to keep a distance from the young upstarts downstairs.

When the Missy is home, everyone knows to quietly sleep or meditate until she initiates the action plan for the day – which hopefully will not include another Facebook tirade against the newly-installed POTUS.

Presidential and Kitty Kat Drama at My House

January 22, 2017


My lady read this morning’s Philadelphia Inquirer with delight.

It seems that the numbers in the D.C. Women’s March yesterday surpassed the numbers who attended DDT’s (disastrousdonaldtrump) Inauguration.

The good news is that DDT is apparently uniting the pro-democracy public- as no one else can – against the great dictator (HIMSELF)!

And on another note, a member of our family is missing:  Bijin, a stray My Lady adopted over a year ago.

Where is she? She was never happy being neutered and being cooped up with other members of this large family. She must have escaped when My Lady opened the door to put out the trash.

I miss her presence. She was a beauty. She was named “Bijin” which means “beauty” in Japanese.

(All of us, except me -Beebee-  are named after Japanese persons, places or things, so that My Lady can keep up with her pigeon-Japanese language skills 🙂 )
