Hello Spring! Hello Flowers! Hello...?

Photo by Ilana Gustafson

Cynthia (blissfully):  Our friend and fellow cat lover, Ilana, took this photo and I can't stop looking at it - it's so pretty. Don't you just love springtime, Marcy? I always feel so optimistic and happy in spring.

Cynthia turns around to find Marcy sitting in a dense cloud of her own fur.

Marcy:  I mostly feel oppressed by hairballs in spring.

Cynthia screams and rushes off to find Marcy's hair brush. 

*Don't forget to brush your kitties more often in the springtime. Technically, indoor cats shed lightly all year long, but I've noticed that mine really do shed more in the spring. They're weird like that. Brushing them every few days cuts waaaaaay down on the hairballs (and the amount of times I have to vacuum and dust!).

Denim Shirts And Midi Skirts

Cynthia:  I seriously can't believe it - all of my favorite styles are on trend right now!

Denim Shirts.
Denim Jackets.
Denim Skirts.
Midi/Knee-Length Skirts.
Flare Jeans.
Ballet Flats.
High Waisted Pants.

Cynthia's eyes bug out.

Cynthia:  Gasp! It's like - the fashionista set raided my closet and declared me - "in style'.

Cynthia (wide-eyed):  Do you think?

Marcy (scoffing):  No.

Cynthia smiles happily.

Cynthia (bashfully): I've never really been "in style" before.

Marcy:  Just promise me and Freddy that when it all goes back out of style, you'll finally relinquish the flared jeans, gaucho pants, and headbands.

Cynthia:  Why?

Marcy shudders as she remembers Cynthia obliviously leaving the house in bell bottomed jeans and a Hilary headband when the rest of the world was wearing skinny crops.

Marcy:  Because when those items are out of style, they are OUT. OF. STYLE.

Saddle Shoes?

Saddle Shoes, similar here

Cynthia is spring cleaning her closet. 

From its depths she pulls out a pair of saddle shoes. 

She digs even deeper and pulls out... another pair of saddle shoes. These ones have high heels.

Cynthia holds each pair of saddle shoes and looks confused and concerned.

Marcy:  You never wear those.

Cynthia:  I know.

Marcy:  So I guess they go into the donation pile.

Cynthia (horrified):  But... they're saddle shoes.

Marcy:  So?

Cynthia:  And these ones are high heeled saddle shoes.

Bass Women's Glenbrook

Marcy:  How long have you had them?

Cynthia: The regular ones: fifteen years. The high heeled ones: six years.

Marcy:  That's stupid. That first pair is older than me. You never wear them. Chuck 'em.

Cynthia:  But Marcy... they're saddle shoes! They're adorable.

Marcy and Cynthia stare at each other in utter bewilderment.

Marcy:  Then why don't you wear them? Ever?

Cynthia:  I don't know. Because... I don't know. I guess I just haven't figured out how to make them look cool and not like a costume.

Marcy marches off in disgust.

Cynthia carefully puts both pair of saddle shoes back in the closet.

*Tune in for a saddle shoe update on March 19, 2020.*

Awesome Readers! Help. How do I wear these things?

mostly me, by penelope: saint paddy's day scare

penelope kitten

Cynthia, Marcy, and Tabby Cat Hamlet are searching for Penelope Kitten. She's been missing for over an hour.

Cynthia (calling):  Penelopeeeee... Penelopeeeee... where are you...? Penelopeeee....

Tabby Cat Hamlet finally finds Penelope Kitten hiding under the bed covers.

Hamlet:  Awwww... P... what are you doing?

penelope kitten:  hiding.

Hamlet:  From what?

penelope kitten: leprechauns.

Hamlet:  Why are you hiding from leprechauns?

penelope kitten:  not wearing green. don't wanna get pinched. it hurts. it's not nice.

penelope kitten

Hamlet: Oh, Penelope. Leprechauns don't exist. That's a superstition - same as saying black cats are bad luck.

penelope kitten:  no. no. totes true. got pinched five times already.

Hamlet:  Really?

penelope kitten:  yeah yeah. they're out there.

Just then Marcy struts into the bedroom.

Marcy:  So did you find her?

Hamlet realizes what's going on. He pushes the covers back over Penelope.

Hamlet (innocently):  Nope.

Marcy:  Too bad.


Hamlet (nonchalantly):  Hey Marcy! I notice ... you aren't wearing green today.

They lock eyes for a moment. 

Marcy suddenly bolts away with Hamlet in hot pursuit.

penelope kitten (from under the covers): leprechauns are super scary.

Hamlet returns with a four leaf clover.

Hamlet:  Here ya go, P. Put this on your head for the rest of the day.
