Kitties Conflate

Loki and Gwendolyn

Kitties conflated
Tangled mess of tails and toes
Two cats into one

When a half-moon blurs
Becomes a ball, a cold sun
Sits eternal blue

From time’s space, she saw
Vibrant sky wore lacy trees
Venus winked, skies blushed

Sleeping With A Stinky Cat

I was having a conversation about groups that do covers and recording with Elizabeth Ramos on her post with a cover of “Smooth” by Rob Thomas, and Carlos Santana called In Performance With The Presleys at Through The Viewfinder. I mentioned recording Sleeping With A Stinky Cat and looked for the post I thought I had done, to discover I had not done a post with the song.

One night close to bedtime about three months ago, Spunk came running in from the catio. As he tore by me at full speed, I caught the full-on aroma of what had happened. Spunk got sprayed by a skunk that had slipped through the wire into the catio. Skunks are like snakes in that they can squeeze their bodies through almost anything their head fits through. A small skunk can easily slip through the 2×4 inch wire that covers the catio. After we got Spunk cleaned up the best we could, he had to sleep with me while he cleaned himself up during the night. He didn’t smell by morning, but when we went to bed, he was ripe with skunk spray. The experience inspired me to write and record Sleeping With A Stinky Cat. The song is played in a funk style.

Sleeping With A Stinky Cat
By Timothy Price

Spunk met a skunk, yeah
In the catio, no
Got a blast in the face
Oh that sent him on a race

He ran around the house like the devil on his tail
Stinking up the place making everyone’s life hell

Now I have to sleep with a stinky cat
Spunk needed comfort after the attack
Now I have to sleep with a stinky cat
My eyes are burning oh, Spunk is such a brat
Lying on the bed, curled in a ball
Sleeping with a stinky cat is no fun at all

I wiped his face, yeah
Wrapped him in a towel, oh
We rinsed his eyes at best
Trying to reduce the stress

Spunk struggled, and he hissed, used his claws and fangs no less
Scratches, bites to end the stress, I ended up a bloody mess

Now I have to sleep with a stinky cat
Spunk needed comfort after the attack
Now I have to sleep with a stinky cat
My eyes are burning oh, Spunk is such a brat
Lying on the bed, Spunk curled in a ball
Sleeping with a stinky cat is no fun at all

Happy New Year!

New Year’s Timku
Happy twenty-three
Hope you keep your flame burning
Prosper and be free

New Year’s Spunku
Will things go to pot?
Black-eyed peas will help us through
See in twenty-three

The last moon of 2022

Cranes flying on the Crow highway

Landing gears down

Large bird in the clouds

Moon, clouds, contrails, and Tangle Heart Tree

In-coming

Roadrunner in the clouds

Fuzzy moon over Shey’s tree

Crossing beaks for a great 2023

Silly Kitties

Glenda

Does anyone remember Silly Putty? Is that stuff still around? We have Silly Kitties. Some of their positions are pretty putty-like.

I got this case out to measure the inside dimensions to see if a travel guitar will fit inside it. Sasha claimed the case the moment I opened it. Glenda was not too sure about Sasha appropriating the case. Is this a case of a cat casing a case? In case you are wondering, yes, a travel guitar will fit inside the case.
