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.

Sweet Dreams

Hello, furries and your minions!

I post on Mancat Mondays because (duh) I'm a cat of the male gender. Does that engender affection from females? Sweet, soft, luscious and affectionate ladycats? Sweet, darling and adoring human ladies? I should say it does, as any red-blooded male will tell you.

As you all know, my number one fan is ladycat and friend Miss Bridget de la Furr. After she cleans my ears, she will lie down next to me and sleep. Totally understandable since I know that task can be very tiring!

Aren't I lucky? Sorry, mates, you're going to have to find your own ear-cleaning sweetheart!

The last week before Christmas. Can you believe it? The reverends are afraid we'll run out of candles. It's funny, all they have to do is get the word out through the housekeeper and packages appear on our doorstep. I wonder if I can order some catnip plants..

A final word, my friends: Take things in stride, nap in between and always dream. Always. x

Tom, I'd say that you've got it made in the shade, with Bridget to groom and nap with you!

That is such a sweet picture, and that tummy is begging to be snorgled.
