Fabulous Felines – #131 – formerly known as Feline Friday

Frankie says: not only is this a cozy box to hang out in but it also makes a wonderful scratching pad… especially at 2:00am when the sound ricochets around the house.

Frankie and Freddie had a conference when I was out of the house and informed me that they can no longer keep up with the schedule of Feline Friday. This was a huge relief to me and honestly, the only reason I didn’t change it myself was because I thought they were attached to the idea of Feline Friday. We unanimously decided to change the name to Fabulous Felines. 

This photo of Fitzbo (on the top shelf) and Foothill (on the bottom shelf) is a throwback to the late 1980s/early 1990s. Fitz was a girl and Foothill was a boy. They were devoted to each other.  

Freddie just wanted to drop in to remind us that Frankie isn’t the only one who does boxes.

Feline Friday – #7 – Poem for Captain Fitzbattleaxe

fitz and foothill

I wrote this poem in the mid to late 1980s. It was an ode to my beautiful silver tabby cat, Fitzbo, who I wrote about in a previous Feline Friday blog post.  If you read that post you will recognize the photo!

Her full name was Captain Fitzbattleaxe (First Life Guards) a character in Gilbert & Sullivan’s Utopia operetta. Sorry about the small print, it was originally posted to an old website as a gif file.Fitzbattleaxe poem
