Walter’s Lost His Marbles (and I think I can find them)

My brother Walter just got back from “analysis.” I want to know what he does there! Around the house, Walter’s always a nervous wreck. It totally gets on my nerves. Gets on EVERYONE’s nerves…except maybe Ethel, who is too busy hating Steve to be bothered by Walter.

I think Walter’s nerves scare even Walter himself. When it’s time to go outside or even for a walk, he cowers like someone’s going to give him a swift kick. Steve calls him pathetic. (As if he has room to talk.) What furry beast doesn’t like Continue reading

On Track to a 12-Step Program

Today I found a post on YouTube…of ME. At the track. Exposed. I am not sure whether I should feel disgusted or angry (my louder mom would say “pissed”), but I’ve been violated all the same. I thought I felt someone watching me the other day. Must have been my “little” mom, as the loud one calls her, that filmed me.

Never start at the beginning.

My name is Carol. I started this blog because I see things. Lots of things. Around corners. Through windows. From behind furniture and on top of shelves. I watch the people and cats and wretched furry beasts, and I write things down. I write everything down (unless I’m transfixed by my track ball, but that’s another story). I also have many sources on the outside. Some call me a gossip. I call it research.

Now, after two years, I’ve decided to share some of my observations with you. I can say with all honesty that the happenings here are very dramatic and sometimes even shocking. People think that cats live a life of leisure. That may be true for most (Steve), but not for me. There’s too much to see, and someone has to know what’s going on. Anyway, I welcome your comments (or any additional insider information – just click on the blog post title to open the comments form) in the hope of creating a dialogue with you, dear readers.
