Thursday – A little Personal – Stella



“Hello Reader.”

Hello, Stella. What’s up?

“You know John is out right?”

“Yes, I know. Do you need something?”

“Come in here and look at these two.”

Lucy and Bailey

“Lucy and Bailey? Looks like they are playing.”

Yeah, on my turf.”


“This is my rug and my office.”

“I thought it was John’s.”


You are joking, right? He borrows it from me.”

“Oh, I didn’t know.”

“And thoseΒ two keep coming in here. Rolling around and making a mess.”

Lucy and Bailey

“It certainly looks like they are having fun.”

“I need to find someone who understands.”


“Wait, Stella. I understand your problem.”

“You do?”


“Well Β then, go lay on that couch and I’ll kneadΒ your stomach”

“I really have to go.”


I am out of the country and will try to respond when I can.



  1. Aw…poor Stella. She misses you, John. That rolling around shot is hilarious! Happy Thursday! Stay safe and enjoy!

    1. Thank you, Jill. πŸ™‚

  2. Gwen Plano · ·

    Too cute…yep, under that Thriller writer facade, there’s a writer of children’s books. Stella is the queen, she’s declared herself today. LOL πŸ™‚ Loved the dialogue.

    1. Ha ha ha. Thanks, Gwen. πŸ˜€

  3. Leave the doggies alone, you bullying feline!

  4. I do understand Stella! Think of them as your body guards.

    1. They are for sure. Thanks, Pam.

  5. I see you’ve left your blog in good hands, er, paws while you’re gone. You may have to borrow more than the office when you get back, John – these guys are pretty good writers. Love the photos, and I do think that’s how cats see the world.

    1. Thanks, Dan. There guys stay with me when I’m in my office. πŸ™‚

      1. You mean their office, don’t you? In either case, it must be a fun place to work.

      2. We all like it. πŸ˜€

  6. Guess somebody has to claim your office while you’re gone. Not surprised it’s the cat. πŸ™‚

    1. I’m not surprised.

  7. I am sure your fur babies do miss you and without a doubt, you miss them as well. Great shots and dialogue!

    1. Thank you, Jan. I’m enjoying these.

  8. What cute babies!!! If they would like to be interviewed for my Spotlight Thursday, please email me at It’s a lot of fun! XOXO – Bacon

    1. Thank you so much. I have sent you an e-mail.:-D

  9. Excellent job today, John – the pictures and dialogue are terrific. It’s sweet that Stella gave you some time off!

    1. She loves me. Thanks, John

      1. Of that, I have no doubt, good sir!

  10. Oh, Stella…so dramatic. The tummy kneading I’d take with caution.

    1. Gotta keep those claws clipped for sure.

  11. Like Dan said, the pets are doing a great job.

    1. They are. Thanks Greg.

  12. I think Stella and I could be great friends. Hope you’re enjoying vacation, John!

    1. I am Teri. Thank you. Stella would like you for sure.

  13. Oh boy, John. May all of your furnishing be as you left them! πŸ™‚

    1. ha ha ha. Thanks, Philip

  14. Stella is a very regal queen. I like that she held court today πŸ™‚

    1. Ha ha ha. Actually she holds court every day.

  15. This was awesome!
    More please…

    1. Next week. Same time and station.

  16. Nice to hear from Stella today — seems she’s got everything under control in your absence!

    1. Yes, she does. She runs things

  17. 😊 My cat read this post. She wants to know when you are running for President. You have her vote.

    1. Ha ha ha.Thank you, Soooz

      1. 😊 My pleasure!

  18. What a beautiful cat! Stella!!!

    Safe travels, Sheriff.

    1. Thanks, Pilgrim

      1. Beautiful furry people all around.

      2. Thank you, Pilgrim

  19. Delightful, John. 🐱 The finish with tummy-kneading made me smile. I’d forgotten about that. Crystal is not affectionate in that way (don’t get me wrong, she demands attention). Ouch!!! I remember the multi-clawed kneading. πŸ˜€ I hope you’re having a great time. Hugs.

    1. I’m having a support time. Thanks.

  20. Really enjoyed this. My Toby was like that. Lived till 24 and I really miss him.

    1. Aw. Sorry for your loss, Micki. I miss my Frankie too.

    1. Thank you so much, Traci
