This time, here’s a vid of the diabolical Mister Eccles getting his ears scratched by the idiot with the vocal shred who recorded this. That’s one reason yours truly is not an experienced public speaker. Yet. It’s something to work on. But here, Eccles steals the scene.

Mongo Fiction | Not the Neighborly Sort


What of the new neighbor? He’s an odd sort, just moved in from offshore, someplace northeast, and without a word from him since moving here, though I hear talk of what goes on in his home. It’s all rumor, but none of it is pretty.

He never speaks, just sort of mumbles and glowers at people, a nasty sort, even known to kick the neighborhood cats when he can as they show up for feeding. 

He got a nastygram and a visit from the local animal shelter, and from law enforcement on allegations of animal cruelty more than once. Cats have been known to disappear after wandering too close to his place. I suspected at first that he poisons them.

I don’t think much of the people who he actually bothers to let inside his run-down little eyesore of a house, either, one seriously in need of remodeling. 

What goes on in there? One time, I heard something howl and shriek from inside below. Good lord, if he has a dog, or maybe some kind of wild animal caged up in there, that could be where the missing cats go! Maybe it’s worse than just poisoning them. Maybe he feeds whatever’s in there the strays that come too close!

Fortunately, our beasts are indoors only, and he seems to avoid my place, so the neighborhood strays have learned to gravitate here as a sort of safe place for feeding and general cat-gatherings.

But exactly what the hell does he keep holed up in his basement? Something tells me I don’t want to find out.

Where’s Blatherskit and Beelzebub at this hour? They’re late for the early morning feeding . . . . Damn cats.

Cat Thursday | Winter Lodgings for Marshie

This weekend, it was cold enough to let one of the neighborhood furry beggars inside where it was warm. Marshie made himself at home for a couple of days or so, until it got warm enough for him to go back outside. This was good for our cats, as they had to be kept in other rooms to avoid a scuffle with teh street kittehs. Here’s Marshie making himself look all cute and adorable. If his paws were any larger, I’d name his furry a** Bigfoot!

Cat Thursday | Hellllooo, Clarice (and Marshie)!

This week, we have the neighborhood furry beggars at our door! That’s Clarice on the welcome mat and her sibling Marshie reclining next to the plants. These guys usually stay outside, but we’ve been known to let them in on cold days. There’s also Old Otis, not shown here, and he often pops up for daily feeding alongside these two!
