The Raggle Taggle Gypsies O!

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!

I am a gypsy at heart.. always wishing I were a gypsy anyhow.. maybe I was one in a past life.. I even call our little caravan by the sea, the Gypsy Caravan.

running away does sound like a pleasurable choice now and again...but I think I'd rather do it when the weather warms up a bit. (and pack lots of amazing bread for the journey, of course!)

If she will tell my fortune (in a fortunate way) I will reward her with plenty of kittie treats. She can collect them from the suave Sylvester, who is the keeper of the treats. He even has a suave mustache to go with his oh-so-cool self.

I guess it's true what they say: You never truly own a cat.
