Cat Chronicles…here we go again

Bambino and Cleveland here again and in case you forgot…I’m the adorable black furball and Cleveland is the one on the pillow. We are here on Mackinac Island in a bike shop owned by Rudy and now that chick Evie Bloomfield.

Mackinac Island is one of those places stuck in time. Fact is it’s like the 1800s with no cars. Everything is horses and bikes. And there are parades for the tourists we call fudgies ‘caue they eat so much fudge like ten tons of the stuff a year. Yeah, that’s a lot of fudge.

The parades have bands and music and famous people like George Washington…you get the picture. Well, Rudy takes on the character of Mark Twain and Twain had cats named Cleveland and Bambino.  Of course the two of us are much cuter than the original Cleveland and Bambino. The new gal in town Evei Bloomfield is now or Betsy Ross the gal who made the US flag.

Bambino and I hang out a lot on the pool table in the bike shop. I know, what is a pool table doing with bikes well it’s only here in the summer months when the fudgies are in town crowding up the place.

In the winter the table is at the Mustang Lounge, the watering hole for locals. When the snow’s falling…and it sure does fall here on the island…the locals who stay here all winter congregate at the Stang, drink beer, eat fried green beans and shoot pool. When the fudgies come back in the summer the Stang is sooooo busy they have to move the pool table up here to Rudy’s Rides to make room.

There’s always something going on at Rudy’s Rides. This year Evie Bloomfield has taken over the place and old Rudy is now living next door with his soon to be wife. They’re planning their wedding as I’m writing this and nothing…and I do mean nothing…seems to be going right. 

Then there’s the problem of the dead body up at the Grand Hotel that has everyone in a state. Who is this Peep guy and who knocked him off?

bring me tuna now!
It’s shaping up to be another crazy summer on Mackinac Island. Sure wish you were all here to visit. Bring tuna…lots of tuna. Bambino and I love the stuff.


  1. This book was very interesting. The writing allowed me to visualize the location. The pace of the storyline was appropriate. Good read!

  2. LOL! I missed your post yesterday, kitties! Hopefully someday I'll be able to visit your island. :-)
