All about Milo!
Please allow me to introduce myself. I'm a cat of wealth and taste.
No, I am not the devil, nor do I require your sympathy.
I just wanted to grab your attention, and if you are still reading, than this ruse has had the desired effect. Are you still with me? Very good!
Pull up your favourite easy chair, get comfy, and I shall proceed with my narrative.
Would you care for a snifter of catnip brandy or perhaps a fine catnip cigar?
Well, maybe later..

Ahem, as I was saying....
My name is Milo Lebowitz, and I am a handsome and debonair orange tabby cat of considerable charm and charisma. I reside at Chez Lebowitz, with my fair sister Otie, and my feline friends, Alison and Ditzy.
Oh yes, we have a human slave named Ruth sharing our digs as well. But, make no mistake. The cats definitely rule at Chez Lebowitz. However, it is useful to have a human about to keep the larder stocked with tasty comestibles, and to change the litter-box, an odious task that no self-respecting cat would wish to undertake. Ruth is also useful in editing our numerous websites, since Alison, Ditzy, Otie and I have many popular personal pages on the world wide web. So a resident webmistress, even if she is human and therefore fallible, is of the utmost importance.
But enough about Ruth. After all, you are reading this story to learn all about my life and times, and not hers. Am I correct in that assumption? Good!

Here's my story...
I was born of humble parentage.
My mother was a beautiful and seductive black kitty cat with a penchant for men in uniform. My father was a devastatingly handsome merchant marine on shore leave.
If my putative father, had been in mufti rather than in uniform, that I would probably not have been conceived!
Sartor Resartus, and all that. Clothes do make the man, and the cat as well!
My father was a dashing orange tabby cat, who had feline spouses in several ports. I never met him, but am told I have inherited his manly good look.s
My fair sister, Otie resembles our mother, who was a sweet and petite tuxedo kitty, who inspired love in the heart of every tabby who laid eyes on her, the lucky devils. While my sister resembles our mother, she is not coquettish, and is a rather modest kitty, despite the burden of her self-professed "fatal beauty"!

Otie and I were given up for adoption at the tender age of eight weeks. We were taken in by a kindly vet, who assured us it was just a matter of time before we would be leaving his venerable hostel, and adopted by a human who would be both a surrogate mother and an abject slave. Our wait was not long.
One fine day, an amiable woman named Ruth showed up at the veterinarian's abode. While we were sad to bid adieu to such a congenial boniface, we were happy to take up residence at Chez Lebowitz, and have a permanent addresss to which our mail could be delivered. I learned the art of epistolary at an early age, as did Otie. Otie also learned such feminine skills as playing the pianoforte and doing petit-point.
I was tutored in manly pursuits, such as the appreciation of a fine catnip cigar, and various vintages of catnip wines and brandy. I also learned several languages while residing with the kindly vet, who proved quite an excellent tutor and role model.
I am proud to say that my suave demeanor is not just a result of genetics, but also due to my classical education. So many cats nowadays are remiss in such areas.

Residing at Chez Lebowitz was a sweet tiger-striped tabbie named Alison. She was very feminine and refreshingly reserved, with the bloom of her maiden modesty. I must admit that in my day, I have had the reputation of a feline Cassanova. When I looked into Alison's beautiful green eyes, I was hopelessly smitten with her. After a short courtship, I won the heart of my sweet Alison and we had a most delightful romance at Ruth's humble, yet bohemian abode. Alas, our romance, though consummated, was cut short when our human decided to take us both to the vet, and I had what I euphemistically refer to as "that unfortunate operation". Ah, our romance was sweet, but all too short. Ou sont les neiges d'antan? Where are those snows of yesteryear? What beautiful music and kitties Alison and I could have made together. But our love was a star-crossed one.

After the "unfortunate operation", I soon lost interest in my sweet Alison, and came to regard her as a dear friend, with a strong and nurturing maternal instinct.
I resigned myself to my new status as a "bachelor cat", a role I grew into quite naturally.
Since I was the only male among four women, I realized that there were times when I needed to be alone.
I constructed a private lair under Ruth's bed, hidden from prying eyes by cleverly overhanging bedclothes.
I furnished my den with a comfy chair which I acquired at the local Goodwill, as well as a cat-sized bookcase to display my fine, but excellent library of the classics translated into antiquated feline. I do so love Latin and other so-called "dead languages", such as "old feline". That classical education most certainly served me well.
I dubbed this lair my "sanctum sanctorum", which was established as a "men's club" - a place where I could entertain other like-minded gentlecats, such as my old friend Biffy York, a delightful Siberian cat named Gordi, and his equally agreeable comrades, Dimitri and Niklolai. Sometimes our ursine friend, Abdul the Great visits, as does my good friend Calloway, whom I am expecting to stay with me a fortnight in the near future. He has an excellent chauffeur, an agreeable human slave named Cecilia, who just happens to be a friend of Ruth's. Fortunately, our webmistress has excellent taste in friends. We are especially fond of CatAnna who has trained her lovely feline, Monday in the art of meditation. Otie will soon be studying this art under Monday's tutelage - that is in between practicing the pianoforte and working on her various needlepoint projects.

As you can see, I lead a charmed life at Chez Lebowitz.
My stays in my "sanctum sanctorum" are sporadic and short-lived. When my solitary state palls, there are plenty of diversions at our humble home.
Alison and I, though no longer lovers, share pleasantries, and enjoy watching the birds from the many windowsills at Chez Lebowitz.
Ditzy is an amiable calico kitty, who loves wrestling, and I am her partner of choice. She was trained in the pugilistic arts at an early age. We love nothing better, than wrestling in front of an open hearth, and we make an even better-looking team than Oliver Reed and Alan Bates in "Women in Love". No humans can aspire to the beauty or handsomeness of a feline. This is an uncontested fact.

When I am not actively pursuing manly activities, I catch up on my correspondence and have even learned to send electronic messages, which I heretofore had eschewed. However, I have come to terms with the hard cold fact that we are indeed living in a digital era.
I enjoy working on my websites, and assisting our webmistress with various editorial tasks and the shameless promotion of not only my sites, but those belonging to Ditzy, Alison and Otie, as well.

Yes, my life at Chez Lebowitz is an idyllic one indeed. I am a confirmed bachelor cat, and likely to remain so.
Not too shabby for a tabby cat of humble parentage, if you ask me...

 

Milo's Favourite Things:
The seclusion afforded by my "sanctum sanctorum"
The company of jolly good gentlecats, such as Biffy York, my Siberian friends, Gordi, Dimitri, and Nikolai, as well as that excellent chap, Calloway Castillo, and my good friend, Smokey, a handsome Maine Coon belonging to my friend, Abdul!
A snifter of excellent catnip brandy
A humidor filled with the finest catnip cigars
Epicurean comestibles such as Sheba Succulent Crab in Aspic
Watching the birds from the windowsills at Chez Lebowitz, and stuttering at them in frustration
Jumping on my webmistress, kneading her abdomen, and remembering those pleasant sensations of nursing as a mere kit - ahhh!
Having a good wrestling bout with Ditzy, preferably in front of the hearth, since I saw "Women in Love"...
Reading the classics, especially anything by Charles Dickens
Listening to my sister give a recital at the pianoforte and having a jolly good sing-along with Ditzy, Alison and other congenial feline company
Dining on Sheba Succulent Crab in Aspic, by candlelight, with the grammophone playing softly in the background
Enjoying the fine art of epistolary, and writing to my friends in far-off lands
There are so many things that afford me the utmost pleasure, that I have neither the time nor the space, to enumerate them all here!
Life is good!

Milo's Least Favourite Things!
An empty food bowl - inexcusable!
Poor manners in both felines and humans
All those who do not appreciate felines for the remarkable species that they are!
Intolerance for others, be they feline or human
Ignorant oafs who do not appreciate a cat with a classical education!
Dreadful muzak and other electronic music that one is so often subjected to on the internet
Humans and feline who visit his websites, but do not bother to leave their pawprints in his guestbooks!
Well, that wraps it up for now.
So few dislikes - so many loves!
