Dear Jenn,

Mommy reads us your comments on her blog. We like you — but then, what’s not to like? You think we’re wonderful. That makes you perfect in our book.

We have this little problem. Mommy keeps shaking our fur out of this rug and putting it back in front of the sink. We like it wadded up in front of the refrigerator. Sometimes we have to move it three or four times a day.

Would you please talk to mommy for us, Dear Jenn? We would appreciate it ever so much.

(Fluffy! Quick! Hide that psychadelic catnip mouse or she’ll think we’re stoners!)

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. What cute cats, people without pets in their lives are missing out. Yes Alexander is quite the brave hunter. He is probably more brave than I am if we both came across a snake in the flesh and not rubber.

    I don’t know if I want to try the nerd test, I can only imagine my score.

  2. Hi Quilldancer, can I get the cats to pass a message to Jenn too …
    only kidding or is it kitty-ing!

    So was the film fun, I still think captain sparrow doesn’t need that much eye liner, but that’s just me

    PS – Do the pussies still chase sparrows or has the psychaedelic mouse and heat wave got them all google eyed seeing the colours melt from the walls.

  3. ToF — lol!

    Q — Captain Jack Sparrow does wear a bit more eye makeuo than I do …. hmmm, quite a bit, actually, but he’s still dreamy!

    The heatwave inside our home is managed by airconditioning. Currently Fluffy and Chrissy are wrestling beneath my chair. They just finished dragging the chenile rug across the floor and piling it up against the fridge. If this is some kind of kitty message I could do without the cheekiness.

  4. Hi Charlene, the joke was intended tongue in cheek – younger cats chasing birds in the garden, …

    Colours appearing to melt off walls, it is one of the effects (perceptions) created by taking LSD and other psychodelic drugs

    As for the heatwave, glad your air conditioning is working. Here we had a stiffling day but the breeze is turning it into another pleasent late afternoon/evening.

    Hope you are having a nice day!

  5. Quilly…that was absolutely adorable. Actually, I can see their point…cut them some slack?

    Maybe if you get used to it, waddded up in front of the refrigerator is a really good look.

    Um, it’s 4.41am over here. I was supposed to be in bed. But I spent the whole day sleeping. Effects of cold in the head.

    Tell the kitties I love them. And that if I ever make it over there, I want to cuddle both. (Chrissy used to be my favourite, but you have shown me the error of my ways)

  6. You do realize, don’t you, that I have to be careful and not let Sylvester see these stories about the antics of Fluffy and Chrissy? I don’t want him to get any ideas… He’s only 5 months old and very impressionable… Love and miss you.
