So I first read about the CitiKitty idea on HK comedian Mindy Raf’s blog about two years ago … the idea of toilet training kitties! To actually use the toilet instead of a litter box! I know, it seems crazy, huh? But if it works…

Poor little guy. But aside from his banged-up mouth, he seems to be fine. (Photo taken last night – he’s healing).


adventures in moving

So here is my moving tale. Or tale of moving. I am moving my 1BR two and a half blocks, from one three-story walkup to another. I decide I will use try using the $19 per man/per hour movers you see advertised on countless utility poles around Manhattan.

More from C:

The little coneheaded, newly-neutered kitties are back at Chez Rose. I guess they have to keep the lampshade thingees on for a week. They have been much more lackadaisical since their return and even let me have a good night’s sleep last night — something that’s been pretty […]

homosexual felines

So as you guys know that I am pretty open-minded when it comes to the gay stuff, right? (Well, for a guy who is completely straight). I mean I live in Hell’s Kitchen, take the occasional date to gay bars and have a couple of gay friends. I guess it all comes from attending a […]

UPDATE: Okay, it’s working now.

I’m just hanging out in my apartment on a Saturday night with the kitties, since I have a marathon to run tomorrow. The kitties wanted to say hi.
