Meet Ruth Lebowitz - Calicocatgirl!
Meet Ruth Lebowitz, publicist, stage-mother, personal amanuensis, and abject slave to four cyber-celebrity kitties, Ditzy, Milo, Alison and Otie Lebowitz!
All of my kitties have their own websites, and have attracted quite a loyal following on the world wide web. They have nearly achieved their goal, which is nothing less than total domination of the internet.
I am a relative nonentity on the net, the behind the scenes person responsible for their feline cyber-celebrity. But that's just fine by me. Like the good Jewish mother that I am, I am content to shamelessly promote their websites, edit their personal pages, and bask in their reflected glory.
Believe it or not, I was once a relatively normal person before I adopted these four feline megalomaniacs.
My days as a mild-mannered reporter whose ducks were all in a row are but a distant memory. Now I am known as "Ruth Lebowitz - Calicocatgirl!" How did this strange transformation occur? Well it happened like this...

One fine day I thought that it would be amusing to write about my cats for the internet. So I submitted a story about my calico kitty, Ditzy, to the Purina Cat Chow website. Much to my surprise, it was a great success. Thus emboldened, I decided to create a website for Ditzy, whose considerable charm and charisma are exceeded only by her fondness for Meow Mix. That humble website, "Purr-fection" was an instant smash on the internet, and so I decided to indefatigably create websites for my other kitties, Alison, Milo, and Otie, until all my cats had their respective personal pages.
Their websites were just as popular as Ditzy's. Furthermore, these charismatic kitties attracted a loyal cult following on the web. What started out as a humble website, mushroomed into a Lebowitz kitty cottage industry!
Many websites later, Ditzy, Milo, Alison and Otie became established as genuine cyber-celebrities, and were recognized as quite a presence on the net.

Their newfound fame meant more work for me. Now my days are no longer my own. It seems as if every waking moment is devoted to catering to the whims of these four feline freeloaders. In between filling endless food bowls with Meow Mix, and changing litter boxes around the clock, I was singlemindedly promoting their websites, and answering their fan-mail, which, believe me, is a full-time job!
Private time is just a distant memory. No longer am I known on the net as free-lance writer, Ruth Lebowitz. Now I am "Calicocatgirl", the human drudge, publicist, personal amanuensis, and abject slave to those loveable feline cyberstars, Ditzy, Milo, Alison and Otie.
Do I mind being the endentured servant to these four finicky felines? Why not at all. They give me so much unconditional love, which is far more valuable than anything fame or fortune could ever offer me.
There are worse things in this world than being a crazy cat-lady. Just take it from me!

 

Some of my favourite things...
All creatures great and small
My loveable felines, Ditzy, Milo, Alison and Otie
Kindred spirits who share my love of animals
Best friends who make me laugh and never make me cry
Snuggling under a down comforter on a cold winter's night
Waking up to find my tabbie, Alison's tail in my face
Watching Ditzy and Milo wrestling with gleeful abandon, getting each other in kitty hammer-locks!
An unexpected phone-call or letter from a dear friend
Fine art and literature, which make this world a far better place
Breaking bread with congenial dining companions
Remembrances of things past, and anticipation of pleasurable times ahead
Watching my kitties eat Sheba Succulent Crab in Aspic, while I dine on such epicurean treats as a salad made with generic tuna!
Crying my eyes out while watching my favourite films:
Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, How Green Was My Valley, The Grapes of Wrath, Great Expectations, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, Rebecca, and anything with the young Laurence Olivier, and Orson Welles, before he became a pitchman for Paul Masson
Listening to my orange tabby, Milo, stuttering with frustration at those elusive birds that he spies from his perch at the windowsill next to my iMac!
Watching my cats eat
Watching my cats sleep
Living each day to the fullest
Poetry by Emily Dickinson, John Donne, William Blake, and Robert Frost
Writing, writing and more writing
Cats, cats, and more cats
and much, much more!

 

My Favourite Books:
Great Expectations
Jane Eyre
Wuthering Heights
The Biography of Orson Welles
Where the Wild Things Are
Shakespeare's Sonnets
The Complete Bernard Shaw
The French Lieutenant's Woman
The Silent Miaow by Paul Gallico
Thomasina by Paul Gallico
The Complete Metaphysical Poets
The Oxford Book of English Verse
Tom Jones
and many more I've yet to love and explore!

 

   


What I believe in...
Respect for all creatures great and small
Random acts of kindness
Belief in the "golden rule"
Our inalienable right to pursue happiness
The restorative power of love
All things bright and beautiful
Respect for differences in others
The right to free creative expression
Taking chances and having no regrets
and much, more more....
