Thanks for visiting my Hubpages site; it’s a great place to write, and a great place to have some fun with words. I hope you enjoy reading my hubs and find them useful.

BTW, as a cat lover, this profile is named after my own moggy; Michifus; a rather imaginative name which means “pussycat” in Argentinean Spanish.
