Numa says:

Numa is my 13-year old cat, a seal lynx point who's also a rumpy part Manx. I adopted her and her sister, Capra, to be companions to Koshka, my first cat. (Mr Magnificent Tail, I used to call him.) Koshka died after being hit by a car in 1999, and Capra disappeared two years later. In 2002, just prior to moving to a new state, I adopted Nellie. Numa was enormously resentful at first, but the two of them are firm friends now. Nellie is a foil to Numa, so wait till you hear her comments!

1. Don't confine yourself to the box: think outside of it!
2. Yes, I'll take another helping of cantaloupe.
3. Of course the bed is for sleeping!! I just have many sleep modes: snuggling, kneading, stretching.
4. Never choose the first sleeping position that comes to you. Try it for a few seconds, then go to another pose. Not good enough? Okay, walk around a bit and think of something else. Maybe come back to the first. Make sure that she whom you own is aware of your experiments.

Nice quotes

"Life is not the number of breaths you take; it's the moments that take your breath away." Watching the movie "Hitch" right now. Saw it when it came out; have some interesting memories of it. Just the happiness of success when two people get together. I recall suffering through the dragging parts as well. And the part about the "keys" (if she searches for them, she wants you to kiss her) resonated with me when I met my last partner. He jingled his keys in exactly the same way. We didn't kiss, but we were dating just a few weeks later.

New Beginnings

Welcome to my occasional blog. Its unofficial subtitle is "Irreverent, snarky, and sometimes profound reflections on all sorts of things". That should explain why the subtitle isn't actually on the page. I'll also include commentary from my two cats, Numa and Nellie... and at some point their picture as well.

Please leave comments on what I write.
