Darling BELOVED sister,

selma gorgeous

You left us on Thursday December 13th on the Feast of Santa Lucia.

This day is a celebration of light but you made our world less bright by slipping away so suddenly.

You fought bravely through a brief period of illness  and we all tried our best to make your final days as warm and comfortable as possible.

You made it to age 16 but you were always a real “babe”, beautiful Selma Viktoria.

You charmed  us all  with you Beauty, Grace and Social Skills. And you showed us who was in charge with your explosive dragon puffs of fire and sudden displys of  sharp claws!!! SelmaViktoria-An irresistable combination of beauty and strength!

We will always be under your spell, darling Selma.

And since both you  and our Mom LOVE  the music of Michael Jackson.

this beautiful song is dedicated to you from

me , Charlie Chaplin and our Mom.

Selma Viktoria- you are NOT alone because you are always in our hearts!

Miauuuu, Feline fans!

Since it was the birthday of the King of Pop yesterday and my Mom is a great fan of his I am kindly allowing her to post a birthday greeting to the man himself on my blog.

I have been promised culinary delights if I allow her to do this so… This of course made it an easy choice even though you all know how I feel about trespassers….

So, Mom, this post is yours.Make the most of it!

And I will go and sample some DELICIOUS treats in the kitchen.




Dear Herkules,

You are soo sweet to let me write a little something to Michael here. Here is my tribute:


Dedicated to Michael Jackson 

on his birthday 29th of August 2012



Do you rememember?

Do you rememeber?

Do you , do you, do you?

Of course you remember the time 

When he moonwalked

That glittery glove across the globe,

When he held that breathtaking pose on his toes,

Singing all the colours of the wind

In your ear,

Shifting your consciousness into top gear.


Do you remember?

Do you remember?

Do you? Do you?

Of course you remember the time

Of those giant stage conversations of his 

From Victory via Dangerous to HIStory

Causing so much emotion and commotion

Peter Pan in tight Gold Pants on his

 roller coaster ride to Hall of Fame

Michael Joe Jackson

It’s all in your name

And here is one of my favourite tracks which I think you will enjoy too, Herkules. It’s about Butterflies, those fluttery things that you find so fascinating:

After YOUR UNINVITED visit here I have been  ON S T R I K E !

Yes, indeed!

I have been SO IRRITATED and my whiskers have been QUIVERING with rage  for several days and nights….

Sorry followers, but I just had to stay away from here on PRINCIPLE!


I am BACK because   have now had a long and very SERIOUS conversation with my MOM and she has PROMISED me that next time she will ASK MY PERMISSION before she writes anything on here again.

 And of course we will discuss the PRICE she will have to pay…..

However,  I am DELIGHTED  to see that quite a few of you have been here and read MOM’s “Magic Slippers” poem. I must admit it is a lovely poem. AND- The Gloved One and I both wear  gloves, we can Moonwalk and we have gorgeous voices . SO  I guess MJ reminded  you, my feline followers, of me.

However,while he has his hiccups I have my gorgeous PURRsonality! HE heeeee! So of course he cannot seriously compete with my royal self LOL!!!


OOOOOPS! I think I fell asleep!

A l m o s t….

WHAT’S THAT  N O I S E  coming from the hall? Must check it out…HMMMM….MOM has arrived home. With a shopping bag? Let me see, let me see……It is always so EXCITING  when my MOM does some shopping!

It might be food, or it might be clothes or stuff like that! She always spreads the clothes on top of the bedspread to admire what she has just bought. And I always jump up and lie all over the things, just to try them out and give them THE OK!  I call it “Quality control!

So let me  see what we have here- it’s a box this time. Open, open, open, H U R R Y  U P ! 

What on earth!!! I see  something  L E O P A R D Y …..And something glittery. TWO of the same. ……

Oh, a pair of shoes! A pair of feline slippers with glass stones on the toes. Leopard patterned. Purrr….PURR…purrrrr    I like the feline touch. 

But I need two more if I shall wear them on MY paws.

These humans never learn to count properly,  do they? MOM- 4 paws I have, not 2!

Oh, so you bought them for yourself? Well see about that….

I think I will roll on top of them, decorate them with some of my fur  so that they look more authentic. And give them my signature scent!

Noooooo, MOM!, I was just gonna help……. don’t take them away, please….. They are probably MAGIC and therefore they are purrfect for me – THE MAGICAL MYSTERY CAT………..

HERKULES IN Ballerinas

PS.  I  WANT   to play with these ballerinas as payment for your messing around and writing a poem all  over this page.  As OFTEN  as I want to!



Thanks, MOM! Watch ne SMILE as I have fun with MY Magical Slippers!

Herkules darling!

Since the laptop is free I am making the most of it and posting a little poem dedicated to 


It is not a mushy slushy poem so you don’t need to throw up any hairballs in disgust when you read it! In fact it is quite witty!

I chose a photo of Michael wearing a cardigan which I know you’ll approve of since it’s the sort of thing you love to lie and cosy up to.

A Pair of Magic Slippers

Hey You!
Yes You,
Michael Joseph Jackson!

Why did you have to go
And leave my world
So dull and dark and cold?

I want you back!

Was it because we put a pair of wings upon your back
And turned you into a superhuman fascination?
Was it the tabloids stretching you on the rack
Year in and year out of incessant character assassination?

Here I stand
I feel grand
I am the light of the world run away!

Yes, I want you back, Michael Joseph Jackson!

But you can forget about the stranger in the orange pants-
The tabloid junkie creation!

You can forget about the glittery gold pants-
sexy gyrations making dames swoon of all nations!

I want the MASTER and COMMANDER in the grey suit-
The director in control of his creation-
So cool-so smart -so human
A perfectionist at work, such a TRUE man!

I promise not to go bananas
Over a guy in red silk pyjamas!
I promise not to swoon
And slobber all over your chest like a demented loon!

Just accept a pair of magic slippers-
Some TLC from me to you-
A gift of LOVE from this Cinderella
To her goofy Rockin fella!


I KNOW  that you secretly like Michael too, Herkules. I have caught you secretly smiling and nodding your head to a bit of Off the Wall!

So get those hips movin, Herkules.

And my butting in here, well, you can always BLAME IT ON THE BOOGIE!


Your MOM

I wrote something here yesterday – but NOW  it has DISAPPEARED!!!
S C A R Y ….Particularly in these “hacking times”….
OR perhaps I forgot to “SAVE”!
Well, I will definately NOT repeat that mistake! I was quite shocked to see that there was no post…...It was all about my birthday portrait and I was so proud of it.
I AM GOING SLIGHTLY MAD coz now I have to rewrite the whole post;
And of course I caught MOM on MY laptop Michaeling again! It really sucks even if I like that dancing and singing MOONWALKER! But he ought to know HIS place. Don’t ever mess with me coz I am TOP CAT!
Thanks to MOM and MOONWALKER  it isVERY late  now  – almost thriller diller time with a moon and all! I LOVE lying in the window on my soft white furry cushions watching the magical light from the sky. So as you can understand  I am far too tired to rewrite my original post….
OMG- I think that my MOM is going to load up the washing machine! She is such a nite owl-even worse than me!
So I love the newly washed clothes and stuff but I HATE  it when that machine starts shaking and quaking like a violent beast!
WHY, why, why…..if .it could shut up and get on with its work instead of making such a big noise about it all.
Sorry guys, I am off to bury my head under the pillows! I have excellent hearing and I want to keep it that way!

However- here is a little something for you to amuse yourselves with.

I think I am gonna learn some of those moves. If a RABBIT can do it so can I!

And remember the SAVE button!

Nite nite!!!

H E L P!
The housekeeper AKA our MOM took some photos of me the other evening- and that’s OK! As you all know by now  I L O V E posing!

AND-  if I may say so- I am atrue  natural in front of the camera.

There are loads of great photos of me around the house, in gold frames, silver frames, funny frames, heartshaped diamond frames…..

Thanks for all the admiring noises, guys! I love compliments- makes me go all furry and purry…..

The problem is that this particular  photo my MOM took when I was lying in bed, resting after a light snack. There I was drifting off to sleep and dreaming of chasing sweet little lady cats , making my moves and grooves, having a fabolous time.



I felt cramped!  Someone  was bunging me into a horrid beastly gold frame! I felt stuck,  like that little girl Alice  when she suddenly started growing down there in that tiny narrow rabbit hole. I  opened first one eye and then the other, cautiously taking in my surroundings. I could hardly move! I was STUCK, I was trapped inside a stupid horrid NASTY gold frame! 

I suddenly realized  what it must be like to be hanging in an art gallery or a museum. Poor portraits, they are just hanging there waiting for someone to set them free, bring them down off the wall!

I started wrestling and clawing and miauuuwauuuuing- louder and LOUDER and LOUDER!

And  then ALL OF A SUDDEN  I felt a soft hand on my belly and  scent of Dior in nostrils… An anxious voice whispered in my ear ” Herkules, baby, what is wrong? You should never have eaten those 5 shrimps, they are giving you bad dreams!”

 OMG! It was just a DREAM, well a NIGHTMARE  in fact. But nightmares don’t last forever and I simply rolled over and had a ginormous big streeetch  – and realized I was free to rock and roll to my heart’s delight!
Thank you, MOM, I LOVE YOU AND I will NOT chase any other ladies. Not even in my dreams, promise, promise!!!


I have dispersed with those nasty shrimps. How horrid of them to give me a nightmare! I think I will stay away from them for a loooong while.

At least til next week!

Meanwhile- here is something nice for The Lady In MY Life- my MOM!
