it's me, Little Neal.  This is me on Dad's shoulder.  I love it when they come home from dinner.  Sometimes Camille tries to tell me they're gone for weeks.  She likes to kid me, but they're HOME.

Little Neal the Show Cat

It's me, Little Neal, just hanging out.  Mom and Dad are trying to trap our feral friend, Mr. Robert.  He showed up yesterday on the porch stoop and left a pool of blood.  We are very worried about him.  Mom says he don't have nobody to take care of him, no family, nobody.  I don't know what that's like.  I always had Mom.  I don't want to brag or nothing, but I was bred on purpose.  I wasn't no accident.  I was bred to be a show cat.  Mom said that there was something wrong with the way my nose looked, so they put me on the kitten market.  But, she said that I'm not an object.  My nose is just perfect.  I like that.  Mom always makes me feel good.  She loves me.

She wants to love Robert too, but we can't talk him into moving in with us.  And, there's the food issue, but he's already eating my food.  I don't care, much.  Not much.  I don't.   

Why Eat Cake when you can Eat Blue-Tailed Skenk

It's me, Little Neal.  Mom and Dad went to Jacksonville yesterday and had this Gran Marnier cake they like so much.  I don't get it myself.   They have thumbs and can eat anything, why would you want this?  A fat blue-tailed skenk would be much better. 

Me and Mom

This is a picture of me and Mom years ago when she finished her first fiction book.  I was tired of posing.  She's going to San Francisco to do a one-woman show based on the stories in the book.  I don't know why we can't do a catwoman show.  What am I supposed to do while she's gone?  They're leaving us with that man who smells like a dog again.  He smells like a wienie dog.  He wants to be friends, but I'm not that easy. 

Neal on the Mini

It's a rainy summer afternoon and all I have to do is play kitty viddy on the mini.  

Neal and the Egrets

Posted on August 8, 2017 at 8:14 AM Comments comments (0)
Mom and I've been up all night, but I finally got her to take me for a walk.  Those are the egrets having breakfast on the marsh.  The egrets are neat birds.  They stand really still or long periods of time, just waiting for the right fish and the right chance to come along.  They're kind of like cats in that.

Mom says Great Egrets are protected now so that people won't try to kill them for their feathers.  I think they are beautiful (even if they are sort of big, bigger than any tweet ought to be). 

Just in case you didn't know.  It's me, Little Neal, handing back over to the studio.  It's time for my nap. 

Robert ate Breakfast

Morning everyone.  It's me, Little Neal.  I'm ready to go for my morning walk.  Well, actually I've been ready for two hours.  Somebody ate Robert's breakfast on the front porch.  We hope it was Robert.  Well, mom hopes it was Robert.  I don't really care (don't tell mom). 

Just so what's right

This is how I try to get Mom to take me for a walk.  I stare solefully into her eyes and make her realize that she needs to do what's right.  Good, huh?  It's me, Little Neal. 

Robert Eating My Food

This is me and Dad watching Robert eat his lunch out the upstairs window. 

I don't mind that he's eating my food, well, not much.

Morning Everybody.  It's me, Little Neal.  I'm bout to go down for my mid-day nap.  Already been out on the dock with Dad and eaten three times.  Had baby food last.  Yumm.
