Vintage Cats

Rather than blog about the weather or the Dodgers, I thought I'd use my creative energies to discuss another hot topic: my animal allergies esp. to cats.

What do you mean are they real? Are you some sort of sicko?

All hail Thomasina, my mother's cat. I can't tell you if this was Thomasina the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or the new generation. Let's just say growing up, my mom always had a cat named Thomasina.

Gazing into each other's eyes. Eff puppy love, this is the real deal.

One of the furry creatures in this pic was a good Catholic. I won't name names.

They were together through black and white, to color.

All was fine and dandy until I was born. Thomasina started acting strangely. My mother sensed her jealousy and feared she would smother me to death in my crib. But before any action could be taken, Thomasina fled, probably to the hills to die of a broken heart. And then we discovered I was allergic and could never have indoor cats again. I would never know the love of a cat, the warm snuggle of the sweet clean creature that licks its own...paws.

dress- Salvation Army
shoes- Reflection 10 dollas on sale
belt- oops it fell
domino bracelet- I made it

Riddle me this:
What cat never ages?

Hello Kitty!

Thanks for playing,



  1. I am going to my bed tonight a HAPPY WOMAN after reading this post! Those photos of your mama... AMAZING! And your little story, and the pix of you reclining with your really real cats... Marvellous!
    Ok I'm thinking on that riddle!

  2. Loved this post. In another dimension Thomasina is typing "and then she was taken to the children's home and I had my own room with walk-in wardrobe and litter tray. We got over it."

    Oh, and loved the outfit too - especially the shoes. And the dress. And the bag.

  3. Sophiaita,
    I was kinda allergic to cats tambien ,growing up I had asthma ,but I would exagerrate because my sis would steal all the neighbors cat and feed them queso amarillo (si kraft cheese). lol@ furry creatures .. ya se a quien refieres. Tu Mama que guapa.

    me gusta mucho tu vestido con tus tacones rojos. loving that flaco cactus your next too. Wow!! big- ass Hello Kitty bolson, one of my sisters is all into Hello Kitty.

  4. I love the story of your broken heart cat.
    Lovely dress and shoes.
    I forgot to ask how do you cook nopales. We are surrounded by cactus, but nobody eats them here.

  5. Brilliant! I'm glad I'm not the only grown-up into Hello Kitty; I was worried I was a bit odd...

  6. I'm so sorry that you're allergic. I love cats, and I have siamese cat, just the same like Thomasina!

  7. I really like your hair! And that chic!

    Those were some lovely pictures. I grew up being a cat person. I've had several siamese kitties. But I am no longer a cat lover. It was something I outgrew I guess.

  8. LoL, Ahhhhh love it! I too am allergic to cats but I had to go through many "test subjects" to finally get this through my head. Such a shame cause I love them so!

  9. looking tres chic in stripes and red shoes! and You're right Hello Kitty has never aged! geez that took me a while.

    PS I didnt really mention the whole bridal shoot thing

    lots of love friend!

  10. Isn't your mum gorgeous. They might not be furry but your ceramic cats are pretty fab! xx

  11. Ahh how gorgeous are these old photos of your ma! I see where you get your looks! :) And shame on you for making the poor pussy die of a broken heart, hahaha. Maybe he ran away and joined a circus and had circus cat babies!

    I love your outfit and am slightly (read: VERY) jealous of those red wedges!!!! not fair!! $10!!!!!!
