About This Blog

This blog was originally started as a thread on the forum pages of an animal rescue site. Now it's here!

The articles you find in here are purely for entertainment (yours and mine) and (with one or two exceptions) are all tongue-in-cheek chronicles of the World (my bit, anyway) as I see it.
No disrespect is intended towards anyone unless I make a mistake and make it too obvious.

I hope you enjoy my offerings. Feedback and comments of any kind are welcome.

Gizzy (edited comment that I made on Pearl's blog)

(The following post is  a comment made to Pearl's post The Apres-Bar Will Be Held in the Alley)

Gizmo, or Gizzy as we called him, would have loved your pussy ... sorry, Liza Bean Bitey (of the Minneapolis Biteys).

In the cat-world he was a hunk; 10 kilo's in weight, 34 cm tall at the shoulder and over 1 metre long from nose to tail tip.

His hobby was terrorising neighbourhood dogs (including a Dachshund and a German Shepard called Titus) and attacking postmen through the letter box.

He was a perfect 'alarm' cat and would wake me up every morning with a heart-felt jump onto my head with claws extended.  What a guy!

He was a non-drinking, non-smoking kitty that was full of muscle and good intentions and would have loved to have worked out on Muscle Beach in the raw.

Local vets trembled when he entered their practices and safety clothing was hastily donned as it was widely known that he loved vets and COULD eat a whole one if permitted.

They did cut his nut's off, after all.

It would have been a match made in heaven but for the fact that my beloved Gizzy had to be helped over the bridge when he was 14 years old.

Just think of the fun they would have had.

Happy Birthday (for  next Tuesday) Liza Bean Bitey (of the Minneapolis Biteys). 


  1. Liza Bean Bitey (of the Minneapolis Biteys) sends her regards and wants you to know that the very description of Gizzy leads her to believe that he was a stalwart and true kitty, one she would have been proud to call "friend".


  2. Gizzy. If we could all be so lucky.
