This afternoon I had a really good session with my shrink... I took my camera in with me, more for sharing with the receptionist than my doc, but as it turned out, it worked well all the way round! 

Our "new" baby, Pyewacket, is morphing into a beautiful young girl... beginning all black,   to a change in color of her coat...

Once home again today, I did a bit of a search via internet, regarding her colorings.  It was J who first pointed out that she was looking like a Siamese, but being black and gray!  It's true, she really does!  Turns out, that in 1898, a male Siamese, "Wankee" originally of Thailand, with gray coat and black points won first prize in the competition he wa entered in!  Could it be that our "Pye" is relative of that lineage from way back when?  The changes in her colorings have been amazing, in addition to a major surprise, but more so, was that I discovered today that there is indeed a "black siamese" line of what we've always known as brown and tan! 

Questions are culminating within what I call a "mind," so I do believe I need to move on to other thoughts regarding this little "luv bug."  So all, I may well be back later with some "food talk," but if not, you know I will be SOON! 

Be healthy, be happy, be crazy!

That coloring would be an interesting research, Stevie. She is becoming a beautiful animal!

When I was young we had a Siamese female cat who was not bred with another Siamese so when she had kittens they were all black. Turns out that's what you get when Siamese don't mate with other Siamese. The one kitten we kept, named Clinker, didn't look like a Siamese but oh my he sounded like one.

I'm a sucker for cats anyway but (just promise not to tell my pride of felines) what a beautiful cat!! One of my favorite cats of my youth was a Flame point Siamese, white with orange or rust colored points.

I love your Pyewacke-so cute. I had a Siamese cat when I was growing up. He was a cat with personality.

Thanks all, couldn't help but share! Back to "food" chat later! Be well, all!

Your little girl is growing into a real beauty! I hope she is as sweet as my BigShot and not a terror like my Lulu. She found herself a good home with you Stevie.

BSM, while she's become quite a beauty, she' full of the dickens every waking moment! Pye doesn't need a "toy" to play with... a dog's tail, a shadow (even her own...) a bit of dead leaf! When tired, she'll snuggle, just don't try to pick her up - EVER! Such a JOY! Be well, friend, and hug yours for me!

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
