Cat Walks Thru Fashion Week

Fur is in this year -designers are all showing FUR in their Fall Collections

Fashion week in New York produces meowvalous catour and my whiskers flicker over my fellow Italian designer, Salvatore Feral-cat-gamo - oh Puuuurrrrr, his threads are sleek & hug any bod. Definicately feline form fitting and tom cat terrific - and snug fit makes me feel like a 'roll over Beethoven rockstar'.

And my next favorite feline fiber, being the politicatically correct meowster I am, I opted for the krinkly linen look - just imagine something I'd been catnapping on all day long. I'm the enviro-kitty and love PURRfectly 100% organicatically natural fibers. This terrific tissue suit can later be shredded for play - now that is what I call remarkable recycling!

Ciao & Meow,

A Very Vehement Vegetable

Arriverderci Summer, translates to my meowster self no longer slumbering in abundacat summer sun-rays. But behold - meowvalous miracles are on the horizon for this Fall season, and I'm not talking reality TV, like Prancing With The Stars or DesPURRat Housewives!

Consider this convivial cat chat announcing the arrival of the chokes! Catzowey it's artichoke season - and beyond any cat's 9 lives, the spindly critters (which come from CATStroville California) could become a natural & politicatically correct weapon for our nation if targeted proPURRly. They roll and you could probably bowl a PURRfect strike with one. Oh yeah, ya might have a catastrophic moment in peeling the spiney leaves, definicatly - so be sure tp protect your delicat paws while trying to grab and not be stabbed. Chokes are everywhere now -not just in the market. See for yourself this out of control veggie du giorno nearly flattened me, your favorito Italian Kitty. My whiskers winced, I was silenced and it jolted me and my Italian 'tude' from a day-long catnap! Hummm, humbled by a run-a-way artichoke?
Eoww and Meow! I don't recommend pouncing on a run-a-way artichoke that's in roll and bowl mode!

What else to do but join the Choke Patrol.My kitty crystal ball says "This mighty meowster will issue citations to any meowlicious out-of-control artichokes who disturb my pawsatively purrfect catnaps".

Ciao & Meow and don't let your artichokes take control of you!

Choosing and Schoomzing The Ripe Tomato

Catzowey it's Heirloom tomato season and things are popping up red and ruby deliciouscatly. PURRhaps you ponder over how to choose the right ripe tomato, well follow my paws in this seasonly sensational safari. The awe-roma of the big reds is scentsational and it's not recommended you attempt tomato tasting without being eye level to the goods.

Paws down you'll know when you've found the Heirloom that will make you purr and it only takes 1 to make your meal a delicat experience. No fried green tomatoes in site for this mighty meowster but I might make a pot of fresh tomato CATsup with my favorite fat Heirloom.

Ciao & Meow,

Do Re MEowster Adores Awe Purr Ahh

The inimitable Luciano Pavarotti delivered meowvalous PURRformances and in honor of his departing this world, I PAWsed from my catzowey schedule to revel in a larger-than-life sun ray to experience a moment of silence (that doesn't happen often in my house!) paying tribute to my fantasticat fellow Italian.

Opera season has launched, so I've got my black and white tux dusted off, de-fuzzed and ready to go. This year I'm wearing the collarless look - hey guys, don't you Tom cats remember the Nehru jacket? My smitten kitten designer dude-self is feeling frisky this Opera season, and my paws are ready for a season of awesome arias - PURRhaps Madama Butterfly would be appropricat for me with my adoration for things that flutter and fly.

Wishing you and your paws a nonCATastrophic week filled with sun rays and maybe a catnap too!
Ciao & Meow,

Is The Grass Greener On The Other Side?

Fluoride loving feline that I am, (no I don't brush -but I do floss with all natural and very fresh grass blades) there is nothing this mighty meowster loves more, than to include good organicat greens in my daily diet. That's me and my home grown wheat grass crop.

You can imagine my ears perked and my whiskers stood on point when I got wind of September 2nd being the 40th Anniversary (catzowicans - that's 280 years in kitty years!) of The Summer of Love, and it was going to be happening in my City by the Bay. For weeks the papers clearly announced 'free grass would be everywhere' .... So my paws pranced over to Golden Gate Park on Sunday ....oh my, oh my, OH my - my smitten kitten eyes had a big surprise!

No Tye Dye in my cat-closet, so I wore my natural stripes with my jungle jacket, and donned a Peace necklace and my poster - I Just wanted to meld in naturally, and some folks were in really natural modes.

Yep, the press was right on: grass was everywhere (but not my organic healthy wheat grass) and versatile too: to sit and picnic on, to roll around on, to groove to the meowvalous music on, to indulge in. Click on this photo to see me up-close and PURRsonal. Feline frustrations - I just tried to fit in PURRfectly incatnito, at The Summer of Love. My kitty consensus is I preFUR my organic kitty wheat grass from my local North Beach Pet Shop.

Peace, Love & Organic Wheat Grass Blessings!
