a side note on Miss Selina Kyle, our crime-fighting super-kitty. She came to us from the midwest, where Neil and his amazing assistant @Fablor rescued her from kitty jail, ok, actually the Humane Society. Lorraine kept Selina for awhile (she was then named Kali) but living with several Bengals wasn't her scene. She came with me to live the Hollywood high life.
miss Kyle got many twit-wishes, I pulled a few of my favorites:


@layneofshadows
@neverwear no kitty, no deal.


@bexpigs
@neverwear may I please please please have the cat? It's so pretty and I would give it cheeseburgers & love it forever. I have enough bags.
Here is Miss Kyle's first appearance on the internet when she was but a wee kitten posing Halloween-style in Neil's kitchen, from Neil's 2008 blog entry:




and here she was the other morning, letting me know, we AREN'T getting up just yet.




(i have got to clean that bookcase...)

Up soon, a new Neil mailbox, an update on Christopher Salmon's THE PRICE progress and some Neil dollars to give away--
(dollar design beautifully done by Mr. Salmon, Neil's dollar portrait by P. Craig Russell who is doing a glorious Kickstarter project with Wayne Alan Harold, 18 days left! CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO!)




Happy February, readers. xox
