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.

An Anniversary!

Hello, furriends!

This coming Thursday, we'll be celebrating Penny's first whole year with us. I can't believe it...time has really gone by fast!

Here's when we first had her in our house, all separated and everything. Very shy, it was best just to look at each other through french doors (we have four of them, would you believe?). 

I'd never seen a kitty that started out Siamese with added tabbiness on the legs and face...a lynx point, I think they call her. Very exotic..!!

After a year with us, she's still a mystery to me. She's either shy or aloof. The housekeeper thinks she's had a tough time of it, so is gentle with her. I try not to be too macho..

Here's to another year...maybe I'll work on my charms a little more..!

It’s been a whole year already? I’m sure you can win Penny over eventually, Tom.

Yay for being home for a year now. As long as you peacefully co-exist, that's what's important. Everything else is a bonus.
