I'm more than just a great looking Pussycat, I'll have you know!
Bold, Fresh, and the most delightful Pussycat in the world!
You can call me Mistress Elvira, for short, just don't call me late for dinner, treats, a nap, or a snooze!
Welcome to The Elvira Factor!
You are about to enter the No Bull Zone!
Grab your tails, Felinity Assembled, it's going to be a bumpy ride! ;-D
(You missed the debut? Shame on you! ;-D )
Now for the Meowing Points Memo:
One of Daddy's favorite local news weeklies is the OC Weekly.
While he doesn't exactly cotton to their politics, he often enjoys their investigative journalism, and certain regular columns on various subjects.
He's been a fan for many years, long before their Navel Gazing Blog discovered one of Nikita's Street Seens stories, last Fall. ;-D
Which begs the question, how could they not be aware of arguably the sexiest female in Orange County when they came out with their annual Sex issue, this week?
Who am I talking about?
Why ME, of course!
While the county is best-known nationwide in sex terms for silly, attention grabbing Humans such as the Octomom, and all sorts of siliconed silliness among South County's housewives and porno starlets, if you live here, and love Cats, you know that local sexiness exists outside these Human stereotypes—and even outside on the streets, and in the alleys, around Imperial Showgirls or the Pump Room.
It's in the Felines of our law-school students, and professors, and even our Surfing, and Beach Vollyball, Kings & Queens, whom the Humans ooh, and ahh, over.
Sure, there are some snarky Felines, some of whom look upon the Chapman College students Undie Run with disdain, as a sign of severe Arrested Development, because it's not a "Pet Food" Run, but if Gustavo Arellano truly meant it when he writes a piece about the most Wholesomely Sexy Thangs in Orange County, then how could he NOT know of ME?
I know that I only turn a year old on Tuesday and, aside from local readers of this blog, the Pet Tales blog at the OC Register, and a few pet blogs in Anaheim, Fullerton, and Los Angeles, few Humans in the area have a clue, unless they met Daddy Kiril, and I, on one of our Strolls...but still!
I am the epitome of Good, Clean, Fun!
Daddy, and Nikita, told me it was probably because he spends so much time writing Food Reviews, and Ask a Mexican columns, that he might not have time left to approach area Felines, and "Ask a Cat" what he, or she, might know.
And that's the Memo! ;-D
***MEMO UPDATE 2-18-11***
Next up is...My Word!
Actually, it's more than a single word, again. ;-D
it's also something very obscure, not to mention, unhealthy.
“Twitch-skin Syndrome” or “Psychomotor Epilepsy,” pick your poison, it's all the same.
According to PetMD it's a scary thing indeed!
It's "an obscure cat disorder resulting in intense biting or licking of the back, tail, and pelvic limbs. The nervous and neuromuscular systems, along with the skin, are affected. Symptoms may occur any age and can develop in any breed of Cat. Purebreds – especially Siamese, Abyssinians, Burmese, and Himalayans – seem to be predisposed to develop the syndrome."
This article, I read, talks about the symptoms, types, and causes, as well as diagnosis.
Since there is no known cause, or cure, it also talks about treatment, management, and prevention.
Our Patriot, this week, is a British Website called Moggies, and is the work of a Cat Lover named Padraig.
The reason is that it has a section of the site devoted to stories of "Heroic" Felines. ;-D
Moggies is a 12 year old website that is "Home of the Online Cat Guide", and is a site that even Nikita didn't know about until I told him! ;-D
The website is an amazing resource for international news, and informational links, arts, crafts, Cat Fonts, a gift shop, and so much more, including the occasional important story regarding Dogs as well.
The site is best viewed while sitting in the lap of your Human, as you both are at the computer. ;-D
The Heroic Felines Page links to 17 fascinating, true, stories of Cats, in the far past, and more recently (Including WW 2, & 9/11), whose stories are well worth missing a nap, or snooze, to read about!
Well, that's it for this edition.
