Count Fritzula The Tuxedo Cat

IMG_20160910_013016

 

Count Fritz was no ordinary Count, he had the usual markings of a Tuxedo but with a little more. He had fangs like that of a proud Fritzula and his razor sharp claws were as pristine as the finest of kitty claws. Fritzula was also very proud of his 22lb stance. Lady Mama Wife would watch in awe as he strutted his stuff around the castle. But, a heed of caution, don’t ever make mention of his shorter than average manly tail; it would only crush this Count Fritzula’s kitty ego.

Count was very proud of his Man King and would make sure all the duties of watching over The Great Wise Elder were executed with the utmost importance. Fritzula, knew this was of the highest honor of all Tuxedo Cats, and was grateful for this responsibility.
Count Fritz also knew the importance of taking care of Man King. Man King would over work and forget to rest and push himself too hard. It was Fritzula’s noble duty to demand rest of the Man King. Once Man King was in his King Resting Chair, and only then, could Count relax and spend time with Lady Mama Wife. Lady Mama Wife was Man King’s Lady Queen, but being the Count that Fritz was, didn’t realize the difference between a Fritz and a she-man and would sit on the floor with Lady Mama Wife and let her rub his Tuxedo Chest. This pleased the Count, and he would guard and protect her as only a Count Fritz the Tuxedo Cat could.

Count woke up from his Tuxedo Cat slumber one morning when he didn’t hear the great chimes marking the time to tend to The Wise Elder, and knew something wasn’t right. Man King had to travel to the far away, leaving Count Fritz in charge of the castle. Fritz knew immediately the importance of this task; he was responsible for the safety of The Great Wise Elder. Lady Mama Wife would come to relieve the Count, but only for a small time and Count Fritz would be saddened by her departure.

This was a much larger task for The Tuxedo Cat with Fangs, and he was having unpleasant thoughts for Man King, and immediately felt much shame. Count Fritz could not understand why Man King left he and Lady Mama Wife alone in the castle and upon his return, Man King would surely get a licking from the Count!

Napping by the Orange giver of food on a warm spring day, letting the sun warm his Tuxedo Coat while dreaming of Lady Mama Wife rubbing his manly Tuxedo chest; Count Fritz with Fangs heard the familiar sound of footsteps and knew right away Man King had returned from his important journey.
Fritz ran down the massive winding stair case to the great opening that led to the outer beyond and welcomed Man King the only way a Count Fritz the Tuxedo Cat could. Fritz graciously praised Lady Mama Wife for bringing Man King back home, and all was happy again for Count Fritz the Tuxedo Cat with Fangs.

DIY Book Nook for those Cold Winter Days

booknook

I don’t like the cold; it’s cold.  You have to bundle up to go outside, and if the wind changes direction it blows cold air on you and it gets really cold.   Did I mention I don’t like the cold?

Because it is so cold outside, I spend most of my time inside; the temperature controlled environment of my home.  Because of my dislike of being cold, this is a good time for me to work on crafts or projects around the house.  One of the projects I am going to work on is making a cozy book nook so I can read my kindle or write my blog in my nice new comfy warm space.

The Space; my first step is going to be finding the right space; an unused closet or corner of a room is usually ideal for this project.  I have an extra bedroom, which I am going to decorate boho chic will be the perfect place for my nook.  This room has extra walls and corners, so for me it is perfect!

A Place to get Comfy; There are so many ideas floating in my head; I can get really detailed or keep it simple.  Since my room is going to be boho shabby, I am going to stick with this theme for my nook. First thing to consider; what am I going to sit on?  I could use a big oversized comfy chair or make my own.  I decided to keep it simple, so I am going to use oversized pillows and cover them with a thick comforter and add smaller pillows to lean against the wall for a back rest.

Other Things;I went to my favorite shopping place-Goodwill, and I found a cute little table to put my lamp on and a cute little wooden box to put books in.  I hung some inspirational wall hangings and draped some old curtains from the ceiling to create a cozy private place to sit and relax.

I put some candles, incense and some pretty Knick knacks for my table.  Now I have a nice hiding place to stay warm and comfy away from the bitter cold outside.  I also have a little heater by the foot of the nook to keep my feeties  warm.

I hope this inspired you to make your own nook, and the best part is you can make it any way you like.  This is YOUR space after all.  Stay warm and happy reading!
