Despite her posh name, Her Royal Highness has always been a bit of a gypsy cat at heart. She secretly longs for adventure and the open road. She yearns to dance wildly by firelight to the sound of tambourines and sobbing violins.
So it really wasn't too much of a surprise the other day when HRH informed me that she is changing her name to Madame Zara and running off to join the gypsies. She will tell fortunes and have her paw crossed with silver. She will break the hearts of many toms and steal their catnip to boot.
There is a whole gang of wild gypsy bloggers over at Traveling Gypsy Caravann whose ringleaders are Pattee, Sonia, Renee and kj. They are inciting gypsy mayhem all over the internet, encouraging women, men and now cats to kick over the traces and run away with them.
Have fun, Madame Zara! Send me a postcard every now and then!
