‘Mao!’ ‘Mao!’ ‘Mao!’

You’d think with the former 1st Chairman of the Communist Party of China departed now for the past 3-1/2 decades that Twinx would quit his incessant sounding of tribute. But no, this Red Cat continues caterwauling about the place:

‘Mao!’ ‘Mao!’ ‘Mao!’

It’s not bad enough that we had to scour the internet and pay international shipping to get a supply of feline-size chopsticks. Nor are quality shoji screens in miniature sizes readily available. And, with all the fish cat foods out there, you’d be surprised how difficult it is — amongst all the sautéd, seared, chopped, seasoned and blended options — to actually track down some decent sushi or dim sum.

But the ultimate’s got to be the kitty cheongsam-style tunic of red silk bordered in lemon yellow, with traditional Oriental imagery embroidered in gilded thread. I tell ya — that set us back more than a year’s worth of the best baking soda-, charcoal- and silica-gel-infused cat litter!

      Some cat's get all the breaks huh?

      A growing number of cat owners and many cats themselves apparently tend to believe that while a dog is man's best friend a cat's best friend is an owner who feeds, pampers, caters to and cares for his/her cat.

      Every once in a while the cat will allow its handler ( not owner -- cats are too finicky for that -- ) to hold and play with it for a limited amount of time.

      Cats add finesse and flair to the animal and human kingdoms! Enjoy your cat!
