Bachelor of the Week: Carrot!

Dear Citizens of CrepesTown (that’s right, I have annexed you all):

Please let me announce to you that, although spring has not quite sprung, have have our very first veggie of the year. Meet Carrot!

The lovely little veggie himself!

The lovely little veggie himself!

Carrot is a nine-month old sprout that loves to sing. In fact, we’ve heard tell that, before he ended up in a New York high-kill shelter, he had a band called “The Four Carrot Tops.” Unfortunately, many people thought it was a Motown-style band comprised of all red-headed comedians and no one showed up for their concerts.

In any case, Carrot has taken his talent and gone on tour, touching on each of the continents. Continent hopping, if you will. In fact, one might say he’s been in-continent and out of continent constantly. He’s even been slightly to the left of continent, which is where you can find him today. For the less astute of you, I shall spell it out: he has an injury that doesn’t allow him to fully empty his bladder.


You know how when something is SO cute you just want to squeeze it? Well, you can squeeze Carrot! In fact, you’ll have to, at least twice a day, to make sure his little bladder is completely emptied and he doesn’t get an infection. It’s not that he doesn’t use the box; he does. He just doesn’t always realize that he is sprinkling the garden, so to speak.

Anyway, Carrot is lovely. He’s available for adoption. He’s happy go lucky, he sings non-stop, loves to climb, and wants to be the filling in your delicious cake. Pluck him from the garden that is Tabby’s Place, where¬† so many beautiful things grow.

Carrot wondering why you haven't clicked on his adoption link yet.

PS. He’s also accepting sponsorship if you can’t have him in your home. Consider it like a CSA, except the veggies stay at Tabby’s Place and instead you get a great sense of accomplishment.

The Artwork of Crepes: A Gallery

I am dabbling once again in art and wanted to share with you a few of my recent works.

I call this one “Bipetual love” and I have no shame:

"Bipetual Love."

“Bipetual Love.”

Next we have “Nude in a tub”

"Nude in a tub."

“Nude in a tub.”

She also, like me, has no shame.

And finally, I present:

"The Unbearable Lightness of Being without Cody."

“The Unbearable Lightness of Being without Cody.”

This is the aftermath of my receiving Valentine’s gifts from my date Cody from Cat Chat with Caren and Cody. I played with them and then realized I was alone. I believe I have captured the essence of my gravitas in this self portrait. Thank you for the gifts, Cody, and the despair.

What do you think? Do you like my art?



PS. Don’t forget about the Tree House fundraiser tonight. Come out and meet the CATastrophes team if you’re in Chicago!


Tuesday Haikusday: Books

You guys!

I thought I’d bring back some haiku today in honor of the book party we’re having tomorrow in support of Tree House! Eh hem…


Papery softness

Supports my head while I nap.

Gently, I sniff you.


Held up to her face

Taking attention from me

I punch your pages.


Your pages crinkle

Gently, I chew your corners.

I digest knowledge.

If you don’t have a copy of Rescued yet, get one here.

And if you’re in the Chicago area, please come out tomorrow to meet the CATastrophes team and support Tree House.



PS. Here’s a video of me playing in slow motion. Ignore the grey cats. I’m the star.

Book Signing and CATastrophes Meet and Greet!

You Guys!

I wanted to announce to everyone that there will be a book singing and meet and greet! The book for which I am the cover girl, Rescued, was recently released and my chosen rescue is Tree House in Chicago.  They are going to have a Happy Meower to celebrate the book and MomFOD will be there reading my story. You can also meet Kris and Michael from the CATastrophes Web Series!

I would like to cordially invite you all to come have a drink for the kitties!
