Meet the Parents

Someone said they were confused, so I thought I'd do an introduction. Firstly there's me. I'm Tigger, and I'm a wise woman cat - I'm 8 and I like to check things out. That's how I got the job with the F.B.I. - well, along with my high qualifications in hacking. I'm the best hacker She has ever seen.

Who is She? She's the author of Kaleidoscope, 129 posts related to travel. She has a suitcase collection. She likes to go to Italy. A lot!

I own a boy - he's 19. He drives Her old sports car, a Fiat X1/9.

I laugh at him a lot these days as he walks around behind Pyewacket under her spell.

H'mm - Pye is the new Siamese to replace the other one that I was REALLY fond of, *sniff*. Pye is eight months old and on a good day we call her the Holy Terror.

Trixie is... well, she's not really a cat, she's a little girl, dressed in a black and white tuxedo. Trixie also owns a boy who is 16 and who just went on a trip to Italy and Dubai with Her. You can read about that in his blog, Alessandro's trip. He's a pool shark. Here he is in our friend Dragan's pink BMW.

All the people on the blogs who come in and leave messages for Ms. S - well, She's a teacher and She has Her kids up on websites too, just like Her cats. They want Her to mark their homework or read their stories in their blogs. She has 17 kids with blogs!

Here's another picture of my boy. I got him when he was 11. I've had him for years. We share a room.

Message from Pye at topcatrules

Pyewacket is hissing at me cause I'm getting getting her messages. She wants to know if it is the log in?

After you write her a message, you have 3 choices, log in (to or Other (which she uses all the time on blogs) or anonymous.
She says you can't "log in" cause none of you have accounts, so please use other or anonymous.

She won't stop hissing and says she will spit at me soon.

*sigh* I'm not allowed.

Photo Hunt Pink

We're on vacation, on another road trip. Can you tell where we are? We hope Dragan never sells his BMW, we like to joy ride in it when he's not looking. Oh, and if we get stopped for speeding, I'll just flash my badge.

Official F.B.I. warning about Venice pigeons

I received an official memo today from the Head Office that I need to share with you. It's about the pigeons.

Wordy Wednesday - Licking pigeons in Venice - the results of my investigation

Well, that was interesting! I didn't get very far because none of the pigeons were very keen to help me find out if their feathers come off when they're licked. I think it was very mean of them, 'cause I asked ever so politely.

They all said they have enough to worry about these days as a small number of the Venice seagulls have moved right into the square and are living off the pigeons! She used to go and sit in the square every morning when she was there, and watch the day start in Venice, but on Her last two trips She has been horrified at what the seagulls have started doing, so She only goes there for a few minutes and turns Her back on them. Now we know that seagulls have to eat, but can't these huge, rogue ones go back to catching little fish and not upsetting the tourists (or the remaining pigeons)?

Here we are sitting in the chairs outside the Lavena Cafe in Piazza San Marco, just two weeks ago.

How I got to join the F.B.I.

Some of you have been asking me how I got in the F.B.I. Well, it's because of my hacking skills. I'm a top hacker you see. I don't like to boast, but my hacking is pretty extraordinary. At least, She says it is. Sometimes, She has to pay other people in the house to clean it up.

I'm very proud.

They advertised for hackers and I applied and I got a card in the mail and everything.

Monday Mystery - Investigating Properties of Pigeons

Do their feathers really come off if you lick them? I shall find out. Here I am with Her and Him on their recent trip to Venice.

Fur Brings Intelligence

I'm the Queen of the household - meet me. Trixie and Pyewacket may SAY that they are top cat, but really, don't make me laugh.

I am a Wise Woman cat.

I was here first.

I'm 8.

I know everything and I have ways of getting information that I'm not sharing with them. I'm a member of the F.B.I. I have full use of The Bureau, no one else is allowed to sit on it. I hear they are interested in hackers. I'm one of the best. And I only ever hack on the carpet, never on the tiled floor.

I'm branching out on my own. I'm going to investigate things, such as, do pigeon feathers come off if you lick them?
