Notes from a parish cat and his author Julie Mackenzie

My photo
I am Father Tom Fish, esteemed member of the religious team at Temptation of Christ Parish in the novels by author Julie Mackenzie. As to my background, I was invited into the rectory as a stray, laid on the charm, and was invited to stay, even honorarily ordained and no less spiritual than my sidekick Father Will. He dotes on me to high heaven and forgives all of my street cat proclivities, whatever the hell that means.

From Mugshots to Sheer Heaven

Chopin here ~

Remember this mugshot of me at the shelter?

And that photo of me with Mom Julie after she fell head over paws (I'm so glad)

It's been a whole year today, my Gotcha Day and I've never been happier.

I spend a lot of time on the porch where I can pretend I'm in the jungle.

My big brother Tinker is my guide:

Me: What's that over there?

Tinker: An ugly, hairy critter who likes to nibble on cat ears.

Me: Oh, no! I'm glad I'm safe in here! (I knew he was just pulling my leg)

Then, for the first time, I met the "red dot." Tinker was trying to catch it as I watched.

I have been very happy with treats, good livin' and lovin' and a family and home to call my own.

And this is just the first year, my furriends.

Life is good.
