Friday, July 27, 2018 – Catty Friday
What day is it? Friday? It’s the last day of my birthday week. I must have slept through Thursday. What a wonderful birthday Jellicle Ball. I woke up in the lampshade.
Thank you to all the wonderful cats for coming to my party celebrating the first anniversary of my Forever Home. It is all coming back to me now. There was quite the clowder.
First we watched one of my favorite movies –Catsablanca. “Here’s meowing at you, Kid.”
Then we listened to music. The Pussy Cat Dolls prepared a special playlist just for the occasion. It had all of our favorites – Cat Stevens, Stray Cats, and Catskills.
The last song was the Catten Eyed Joe by the band Litter. It had been a long time since I danced the Catten Eyed Joe in a catnip induced chorus line.
Now what you say…(Cat -shit!)
Y’all say what…(Cat-shit!)
Still can’t hear you..(Cat-shit!)
I love my new reads too.
- The Catterpurry Tails
- Cat 22
- The Great Catsby
- The Odhissy
To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harpurr Lee is one of my all-time favorites. I love Catticas Finch.
A special gift was from the Six Toes Sisters in Key West. An autographed pawed copy of The Old man and the Cat.
I had a great time. I am so happy I have a Forever Home.
See you at the next Jellicle Ball. Now it is time for a bath.

Thursday, February 26, 2015 – Mrs. Wolowitz
Trivia Question – What was the name of the doorman on the 1970’s TV show Rhoda?
But before we begin – I forgot to make this clear. There are no prizes for knowing the answer to whatever day I deem as trivia day. But thank you for playing.
Veteran character actress Carol Ann Susi, best known for her role as the bellowing, never-seen Mrs. Wolowitz on CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, died after a brief battle with cancer at age 62 last November 11.
How The Big Bang Theory deals with the death of one of its major characters is dealt with in recent episode. But this is about the voice. As Mr. Bowrag says, one can hear that screeching voice in almost any event that allows shouting and sometimes in nightmares.
And I am pretty sure the woman who has tickets behind “mine” at the Baylor Women’s basketball games channels in Mrs. Wolowitz for the entire forty minutes of a game. No one involved in the game from either side is safe from her constant screech. She yells at the referees, the coaches and the players. Her voice is somewhere between fingernails on the chalkboard and a clowder* of cats fighting over a bird. This woman even yelled when Texas star player Nneka Enemkpali went down with an ACL tear. Please note the entire Ferrell center stood and clapped as the player was carried off the court. Well everybody except one.
Mrs. Wolowitz will be missed on The Big Bang Theory. But her voice lives on somewhere at the next sporting event you attend. Rest assured the voice will be sitting near you.
And the answer is: In the TV series Rhoda, every time the buzzer rang, an unseen drunken voice said “Hello, this Carlton, your doorman.” Carlton was the, if not one of the, first unseen characters. Remember, no prizes for knowing the answer.
- If you watch The Big Bang Theory, the episode where Sheldon obtains all of the cats, you would know a group of cats is called a clowder. Other terms for a group of cats are a clutter or glaring and also a “big, stinky house.”.
