Miss Teazle is coping with the bitey attentions of an excitable kitten remarkably well really. Still my number one puss.

All the backlit furry goodness...
Glad to hear she's surviving Melly's attentions. Always assumed she was still Top Cat.

Surviving, yes. Happy, no.

Helen says:

Aww, she's a beauty.

OJ says:

You know Helen, you said almost exactly the same thing the first time I ever posted a picture of Teazle.

Almost.

Awww. And looking downward, as befits a queen.

OJ says:

I think she's grown into the title, even though she's not produced kittens in a good few years.

Caine says:

Perhaps I should have said royalty. She reminds me of my Shandy Kane, *the* cat in my life. She was the bitch queen of the universe, and graced my life for almost 18 years.

'Bitch Queen' .... now that's a name to conjure with ... that is such lovely pic of Miss Teazle ....

OJ says:

Shandy Kane! Now that's a name to conjure with in its own right.

I love the word queen Caine, so it was the right word. Before it meant monarch, the word referred to a woman of standing more generally. Then of course there's its queer meaning. In Liverpool, it's quite an old-fashioned slang way to address a woman. I hadn't heard it until just before Christmas, a Big Issue seller said it to me on the street "Have a nice day queen", or something like that. It seems more respectful than darlin'.

I'm going to have to come up with more rhymes...

OJ says:

Never mind that, you haven't posted a photo in ages. You okay?

Happy (Belated) Birthday by the way.

"Yarreyechght, Queenie?" Used to hear that a lot but short of proper formal phonetics I'm not sure how to write it for the best.
Liverpudlians are about the only people I know who can get straight to grips with pronouncing Dutch "g"s.

OJ says:

Haha. Funny thing is I think I can hear what you just said there. :)

Did you ever live/study in Liverpool Hildegard? I'm not a native so I can't do that sound...but living here does play up the Welsh in my accent.

hildegard says:

Yes. I escaped. For years, I only ever went back to renew my passport. Symbolic, I think.

(Was told by a teacher of Arabic that the Welsh are best suited of all language speakers to learn his language. This on account of the welsh "ll" sound also being very important in Arabic. Seems most folk find it almost as awkward as Xosa clicks.)

OJ says:

Oh I didn't realise you were from these parts.

You might have to exlain what a Xosa click is. Welsh "LLs" I can do. Though I find the word Machynlleth is most problematic amongst English people of my acquaintance. It seems to be the sequence of unfamilar sounds rather than the "ll" by itself that causes the problem.

hildegard says:

Not exactly "from" anyparts; stopped counting house moves once the figure was in the 70s. Spent a lot of time in L'Pool though as I had relatives there with whom we lived for a while & who I visited often.

(Edit) Would probably help if I spelled it right - "Xhosa" an official S African language.

Helen says:

Yeah, I'm good. Not much time for moblogging. It's a shame, lost some of the compulsion.

OJ says:

It is a shame. But you must be busy. Maybe when the light comes back?

our two have good times and bad times - but they are not friends like they were when kittens - but they do sometimes hunt together
