These aren't my thoughts, they're my cat walking on the keyboard.

Here is the stupid poem I wrote today.... 
Fuzzy wuzzy wuz a cat
clawing me while in my lap
purring like a motor boat
I'm bleeding and I'm full of pokes.



  This is my cat, Isabella.  She is the only cat I've ever had who rides in the car, looking out the window and checking things out.  Most cats I've had hide and wait for it to be over (or in the case of my cat, Smudge, cries, pees and poops all at once). But she's a traveler.  
  We adopted her almost four years ago in Argentina from a young woman who didn't speak a word of English so she hilariously pantomimed all instructions to us about her litter box and deworming medication.  It was even funnier because our Spanish wasn't that bad at the time so we understood her anyway.

Two days ago we launched a kickstarter promotion for our new graphic novel "The People That Melt in The Rain"... Anyway we have some great offers including original art, signed copies of the book and other fun stuff! If nothing else take a look at the video that I spent three days making. :)

Wish my cat would be a traveler like Isabella! She weeps and wails all the way going and coming back from the vet. BTW, her predecessor's name was Isabella too!

Funny post. mysister is the real cat lover. She has 6 with 1/2 of them with special needs. The cats don't travel so, I used to baby sit them.
About the Spanish, I understand more than speak. It is funny when I understand what people are saying in the line at the grocery store. OOPS! that seceret is out.

I think traveling cats are hard to come by. Malika, that's just where we were at then-Understanding ore than we spoke. :)

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
