Am I a Tribble, Or Am I a Cat?

Any of you kitties ever watch Star Trek? All of us Ballicai like it, but my favorite is the original series because of the Tribbles. From Wikipedia: "Tribbles are small, soft, gentle fictional animals in the Star Trek universe whose cute appearance and soothing purring endears them to every sentient race which encounters them — except Klingons." Here's a picture of Captain Kirk surrounded by Tribbles:

I like Tribbles. They're furry, purry, and exceptionally laid back. Much like me, in fact.

So here I am, doing my best Tribble imitation. Am I a Tribble, or am I a cat? *purrrrrrrrr*

I'm a cat!

For my darling Mickey: "La Vita Nuova" ~ Dante Alighieri

In that book which is
My memory . . .
On the first page
That is the chapter when
I first met you
Appear the words . . .
Here begins a new life

Oops, I turned off the comments again and I didn't mean to! Sorry about that *smile* -- they're back on.

E sì come la mente mi ridice,
Amor mi disse: “Quell’è Primavera,
E quell’ha nome Amor, sì mi somiglia

My darling, romantic Mickey,

Ohhhhh, your superb Italian is making my whiskers quiver and my fur fluff all over! You are my Springtime, my dear, forever in bloom.

Your ever-loving,


*giggling* at Jeter! Here's what Mickey said. It's also from Dante's La Vita Nuova, from the chapter called "Io mi senti’ svegliar dentro a lo core" ("I Felt My Heart Awaken"):

And—here is what I am reminded of—

Love said, “The first is Springtime, but the second

Resembles me so much, her name is Love.”
