I'm Friday catblogging again as I try to recover from staying up past my bedtime seeing Dweezil Zappa and the amazing band he put together to play Frank Zappa's music. Even without guest players Steve Vai and Terry Bozzio, it would have been fantastic.
This photo shows my cat, Kato, when I got him in early 1990. He'll turn 17 in December and he's still quite playful. Just try to tie your shoes in his presence and you'll see what I mean.
Because of his age, he's our most high-maintenance cat. He gets 1/4 of a Prilosec tablet every day to maintain his appetite despite some kidney problems. Then he gets special canned food and special dry food that the other cats would desperately like to take away from him.
I wish I still looked that young...although I'm well rid of the giant, blonde mullet and the acid-washed jeans!
