Face off- cat vs squirrel

Felix & squirrel-1 Felix & squirrel-2

it’s cat against squirrel. the cat ponders his options. i’m bigger than him, but he’s faster than me. if i

pounce on him, i flatten him and win. but he could bite me, and he’s got sharp teeth. raw squirrel could

be tasty, but we’re having chicken alfredo for dinner, with parmesan cheese and zesty tomato sauce and

rocky road ice cream for dessert.

forget the squirrel- i’m taking a nap!


Artsy fartsy kitty


here i am in dramatic black and white, gazing seductively at the camera. this could be a vogue magazine

cover, or maybe glamour.

actually, i was thinking about lunch. i always get that look in my eyes when i think about food. maybe

i should be on the cover of bon appetit magazine.


Goodbye Landon Donovan

Goodbye Landon Donovan

yesterday the los angeles galaxy won the championship of american soccer! it was a happy day for the team

and the fans, but it was a sad day too because it was landon donovan’s last game.

thank you landon for all the great goals, the great world cup moments, the threading the needle passes

and your smiling face. we will miss you.

good luck on your next adventure!


A Very Fuddles Thanksgiving!

A Very Fuddles Thanksgiving!

one of my favorite days of the year! mashed potatoes, yams, stuffing, thick gravy, corn

bread, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and a big fat turkey!

i might skip dinner tonight to build up my appetite… or maybe i’ll skip seconds. or, well,

oh, i’m so anxious for that turkey, it’s making me hungry! and i still have to wait 2 whole



Big Draw at the Glendale library!

frans did a fuddles reading and drawing demonstration at the casa verdugo library in glendale. the kids

did a fuddles treasure hunt too, and they asked frans a bunch of questions. librarian vivian dulay organised

the event. (she’s in the picture with frans, holding my fuddles book.)

and with frans and my christmas book is maureen, the owner of once upon a time bookstore in montrose,

(the oldest children’s bookstore in the country!)

i’m sad to report that there wasn’t much food on hand, so i’ll console myself with a big tuna casserole.


Spencerport visit

last week frans visited spencerport in upstate new york. he went to four elementary schools, munn,

bernabi, taylor and canal view. frans showed pictures and videos of me, and he made drawings of me

doing silly things which made the kids laugh. frans talked about writing and reading, and the kids asked

great questions and gave frans ideas for new fuddles books.

what i want to know is what was for lunch! frans got a nice meal each day- he even had lunch with some

special kids at taylor elementary school, where they talked about ideas and writing and drawing.

i would just talk about food.
