Mommy has finally added music to my page! She picked only female artists and I approve of her choices so I guess eventually I will forgive her for not doing it before now!
Sweet Love by the tiny woman with the powerful voice of Anita Baker is of course dedicated to my love, my life, my husband, King Rascal.
Get Here is of course for my sweet love. It's written by the supremely talented Brenda Russell and performed by the beautiful voice of Oleta Adams.
Can you guess who Without You, sung by the talented Mariah Carey is for? Hmmmm, give up? I'll give you a hint!
Hero, again, by Mariah Carey.....well....this one is for two beloved kitties. First and foremost, of course, My Darling Rascal and second is my bestest friend and Catster sister Lovely Diamond.
La Charreada, sung by the Angel Faced, Angel Voiced Linda Ronstadt is for two hoomans! The first is my Mommy who is half mexican and she adores this song, (it does have a festive feel to it), and for my Mother Inlaw, Pretty Rose, who is not mexican of blood, but mexican of heart! I love you Mama Rose.......oh and you too Mommy!
Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me by Linda Ronstadt is Mommy's addition for ME!!
So Far Away by Carole King.....*wipes a tear from her cheek* This one is for the miles between me and my love.
Piano in The Dark, written & performed by the awesome Brenda Russell is a favorite of mine & Mommy. It's filled with passion and beautiful music!
You Belong to Me by Carly Simon is a no-brainer! Rascal, pay close attention to these words....they are for YOU!!!
Nick of Time by Bonnie Raitt (a mega talent) is also for my Darling Rascal but also for my Darling Daddy (I ADORE him), who saved my life!
All of these songs are brought to you by a fine example of womanhood!

Oh My Stars!
Who knew that today would be any different than any other day? Not me, that's for sure!
One of my favorite napping spots is in the back of my Darling Daddy's pickup that is parked in our carport.
Almost every morning when my Daddy gets ready to leave for work he looks for me in the bed of his pickup. Then he does one of two things: He honks his horn at Mom, she comes outside, picks me up from my nap spot and carries me into the house. Or, Daddy picks me up and carries me into the house. Being his special girl, he always demands that Mom feed me at once!
This morning he honked his horn, Mom came outside, looked into the back of his pickup and didn't see me, so she gave him the all clear signal and off he drove.
Eeeegads! The last time I looked, this nap-spot on wheels was parked safely at my house. However, it is now moving.....farther & farther away from my house. I sit up and scream at my Daddy to let him know, "hey Daddy I'm here, please stop", but for some reason he doesn't. On & on this mobile bed travels, will it ever stop? I'm beginning to be very ascared. Fifteen windy miles later, Daddy arrives at work, parks the pickup and promptly disappears before I can let him know that he has an unscheduled passenger. I have no idea where I am or where my Daddy is. Just to be on the safe side I decide to stay hidden in the small area between the side of Daddy's toolbox and the side of his pickup bed. As I was scrunched into my nook, trying to plan my next move, a strange kitty that I've never seen jumps up on the side of the pickup. Who is she? What does she want? Am I going to have to kick her furry butt? I wait......ready to defend my Daddy's pickup if I have to. I sigh in relief when she jumps down and leaves me to the task of solving this travel dilemma . Just as I am beginning to think that my Daddy is lost too, he returns. Now he will reach in and pick me up. Soon I'll be enjoying chin scratches and profuse apologies for having been catnapped. I purr with anticipation, my eyes closed, picturing the attention my Daddy will lavish on me. Unfortunately my eyes pop open when I feel my nap-spot once again moving. I can see Daddy, but he can't see me. Here we go again. Fifteen windy miles later we arrive, much to my relieved delight, back home again. When Daddy gets out of the pickup I waste no time, screaming at him, "how dare you! do you know how stressful this unscheduled traveling trip has been on me?" At last, he picks me up into his arms and begins telling me he's sorry. Mommy, also, was properly contrite for her part in my misadventure. She tells Daddy that I must have had an angel watching over me and then she shudders, thinking of all the scarey pawsibilities. Because I am a Princess, these indignities and frightening experiences can only be erased from my mind with a prompt mooch reward! Daddy & I have trained Mommy well! Soon I was munching on meat & cheese mooch food, to be followed by a nap, not in Daddy's pickup, but in the house. Hmmm, I wonder, does the house have wheels too? As I cannot recall seeing any, I lay my head down for a much deserved nap!

Now that you know the names of every kitty who attended my wedding, and can even click on their names to see who they are, I'll finish telling you about the wedding!
As I peeked out of the room where I was waiting to make my grand entrance, I watched as the ushers made sure that everyone had a place to sit. There was quite a buzz of purrs and chatting from all of my wonderful friends dressed in their best fur in honor of this most momentous occasion. I watched as the girls each took their turn walking down the isle. They were so pretty in their gowns, each girl accompanied by a handsome tuxedo adorned tom.
There were roses everywhere you looked and their sent filled the air with romance. Candlelight set the room aglow with a soft, romantic luminosity.
Although I couldn't see him from my hidden spot behind the door, I knew that at the end of the isle that I'd just watched the wedding party walk down, stood my Darling Rascal, with his best man Mickey standing at his side. Just the thought of him in his regal finery sent twitters of anticipation through my fur.
Finally it was time! I stepped through the doorway of my hiding sopt and stopped at the back of the room, taking a moment to admire all that I could see. When the wedding march music began I stepped forward into the room. All eyes turned in my direction as I desending down the red velvet carpet toward my handsome tom. Gasps, oohs and ahhs, as well as murmured words of praise surrounded me like a warm blanket as I took my place beside the most handsome tom in Catsterdom. I glanced at the girls, giving them a smile, then smiling at the toms I placed my paws into the strong paws of my beloved Rascal.
Before us stood the distinguished Merlin, the cat Wizard who smiled gently at me before beginning the ceremony.
First Merlin spoke to the congregation, telling them of the sanctity of marriage, a prayer to Bast followed. Rascal and I repeated our vows to each other as we gazed lovingly into each other's eyes. We promised to love and respect one another for all of our days. My heart was pounding with all of the love I have for this handsome King that I am now joined together with in a partnership of life. The kiss had my head spinning and my heart singing!! And to be quite honest, I didn't want the kissing to end!! Then we turned to face our friends as an officially wedded couple for the first time!! There were smiles everywhere and soon everyone began offering us congratulations.
From this point on, there was nothing but fun!
Jeter Harris, Mickey's little brother apparently imbibed too much Catnip Champagne and had to be taken home early.....I hope he had fun and didn't suffer too much the next day with a nip hangover! There were several toms assisting Mickey as he helped Jeter to the limousine, Marky offered a doggy bag just incase!! Dashy opted to graze on the roses instead of the beautiful banquet tables bowing with an array of goodies. I think he talked Po into trying them and even Merlin took a nibble too! I had to giggle when I overheard Marky ask Haley Ann if she could introduce him to Donny & Marie and get their pawtograph! Little Zoey was worried that she was underdressed, but she looked darling. Toffy snuck some Champange to Merlin's creatures!! This was a party afterall, and everyone should enjoy themselves. Milagrito flew in from the westcoast, and I was so pleased to meet the mancat who had been willing to come to my rescue when we thought there was no one to perform the wedding. There was of course dancing, I danced with Milagrito, Rascal danced with Cinderella and Marilyn MonREOW. A Conga began, it's always a favorite at any party. Jones came out of the kitchen to join in. Chef Spot and Donny decided that they should cook together some day soon.
And there was romance everwhere, Marky and Haley Ann asked Merlin if he would be willing to perform their wedding when the time comes. My Catster sister Diamond received a proposal of marriage from her most handsome tom Cinni. I'm just so thrilled that this magical moment happened at my wedding and I'm so very happy for her. Mickey Mantle and his girl, Marilyn MonREOW were gazing lovingly at each other all afternoon! And another official couple was born that day too.......Fafnir and Friggy two darling Viking Kitties agreed to go steady!!
The food was abundant and out of this world yummy!!! It pays to have professional caterers as friends....and my friends Spot & Jones are the BEST!!
On the menu was tuna tartar, twiced baked mice, steak, lobster tails, chicken bites, fresh salmon, poached salmon, roast turkey, mice on a stick and fresh baked breads just to mention a few things!!! The Divine Miss Coffee brought cream puffs and expresso/barristas. Icy made the wedding cake and sang a beautiful song for us. I think everyone had a lovely time. It was the best day of my life!!!
