Men are temporary and cats are forever – Irene

This is cutting edge improvisational blogging. We call it –

“Whose Blog is it Anyway ?” 2 – The Unanswerables

We have written this for FUN, not serious, to amuse ourselves and our readers, and help promote our blogs. Please read with that in mind.

Commenters – Please DO NOT post outbound links whilst the event is going on AND please DO NOT post comments if you are a moron. Whose Blog Is It Anyway Poster Whose Blog Is It Anyway Poster

Whose Blog is it Anyway? 2 – The Unanswerables

Why “The Unanswerables” ? Because the titles assigned to my guest improvisers don’t have an exact scientific answer or they are just zany and off the wall.

Do not expect fact here. Do not expect the truth here. This is creative writing for FUN, HUMOUR and for those with a SENSE OF HUMOUR. It’s cutting edge IMPROVISED blogging, not science weekly or the historian’s gazette.

The guest improvisers were assigned titles by me, and are therefore NOT necessarily experts or even actually FOR the topic they are writing about. They all did however “YES, AND” the challenge which is the spirit of improvisation and what we’re doing here.

We’re not interested in your critical appraisal, it simply isn’t required. It is in fact IRRELEVANT to the context of improvised, for fun creative writing. Stop taking yourselves so seriously.

So without further ado …


Her Highness – The Dazzling Glittering Jewellery Master Designer

Irene never ceases to amaze me with her friendly attitude and stunning jewellery designs. She surpassed all my expectations with her improvised writing this time. Why ? She’s not a native English speaker, and I thought the title I gave her was pretty damn hard.

I nearly fell off my chair when I didn’t receive any complaint, but instead this beautiful piece of writing. Irene you’re a charismatic lady after my own heart 🙂

You can find Irene at IreneDesign2011 blog.

Please give a warm welcome to Irene.


Don Charisma Warning Improvised Writing Warning Improvised Writing

Men are temporary and cats are forever


My good friend Don Charisma gave me a challenge, which I accepted. I like to join a funny challenge and I think this is a good possibility for me to learn more and for you to learn a little more about me.


Men are, for me, clearly temporary, which I will tell you more about here. When I adopt animals they are forever animals, if this is at all possible. I feel responsible for them and their future.

Mr. Bølle (Mr. Bully) and Mr. Hvide (Mr. White)
Mr. Bølle (Mr. Bully) and Mr. Hvide (Mr. White)

When I met my Spanish boyfriend I told him about my relationship with my cats and that they belonged in my home; he did not. So he would have to respect them and their rights to stay in the home. That was when I had 3 cats and lived in Denmark. He told me then that he liked animals a lot, but I knew that my cats would test him and they did…

I have always allowed my cats to sleep in my bed or stay where they want in the house. This can create some complications when a man comes in to such a home. If he ever thought this would be easy, he could end up very disappointed.

For those of you, who have never had a cat, I will tell you that they are incredible to raise us humans. We think that we are the ones to raise them, but no, forget it. They do a very good job with that. Just watch how a cat mother raises her kitten. One more thing – they are also raising our big puppy, he will be one year old this month and weighs around 45 kg. They are so good at raising…

The cats started by being so very kind to him until bedtime…..  Mr. Bølle (Mr. Bully) wanted his space in the bed, where he was used to lying and enjoy some time before leaving for sleeping upstairs the Nordic. He was used to staying close to Mommy every night and having this space only for him, whilst all the other cats were on the other side of Mommy. So the boyfriend tried to be friendly to Mr. Bølle and gave him some extra space. This was not enough. Mr. Bølle pushed and scratched him for a while, at that time Mr. Bølle was a big cat at 12 kg, then he jumped off again, we thought now all is okay, but no…

Mr. Hvide (Mr. White) did not want to talk at all, if you asked him strangers do not belong in our home. Months went before he realised that the boyfriend was good enough.

When we woke up the next morning, the boyfriend’s shoes were wet and did not smell nice. For a very long time the cats fought to get him out of the house in one way or another. But they needed to surrender, because he did not give up, even though they had tried their best. Today they are all good friends, but it took many months just for the cats to accept him. He knew, this was necessary, if he wanted to stay with me.

My cats are brothers and more than 10 years old now. We have been together since they were few days old, because their mother died by an accident, for them I have always been a Mommy.

They know me well enough to know that no one would be welcome to live in our home if they were not able to accept the cats and their role in our house.

So now you can see, why men are temporary and cats are forever. Thanks for your attention.

  1. Tribute to my Mama!

    Awesome post. Typical my mom to write something like this. She has been so secretive about the post – now I know why. Great initiative, Don Charisma (:

  2. I am a fan of cats. Women do enjoy cats over me. Why? They’re softer. Cat’s will nudge you with their faces. If I did that to the women I’ve dated, especially after a few days of not shaving, I’d get scolded. Not only would I get scolded, I’d be asked to shave. If/When I’ve resisted, I’d get sprayed in the face with water.

  3. Yay! Another cat lover! When I met my husband, I had 4 old cats. 2 were mostly outdoor cats, and 2 were mostly indoor. They didn’t like my husband. I was “tricked”, and before I knew it, they had all been banished to the outdoors. When the last one of those 4 passed away, my husband said no more. A house is not a home without a cat… I got a bunny. A bunny does not take the place of a cat. I now have 3 cats–2 old and one about 3. They are all indoor cats, but my husband draws the line at sharing the bed. Which is okay with me because they don’t give me much room, and I wake up with too many pains from sleeping in odd positions. I think he knows who I would save in the event of a fire. 😀

    1. Yeah, my cats are still allowed to stay, where they wish to, and I will not accept it different. And they decide, if they wish to stay indoor or outdoor in daytime. In the night they are indoor. So my titel here is very right 😀

      1. Hi Irene – ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway’ is(or was) an American Television show that Don Charisma based this fun challenge on 😉 I think ‘thisyearinmusic’ means he used to watch it a lot as a child and remembers it well, and really enjoyed it a lot. So he is complimenting you on your entry I think 😀

      1. It’s a great show Irene, you’d almost certainly laugh … YouTube will have, search for “Whose Line is it Anyway” …

        and I’m the same as you don’t watch a lot of TV, movies yes, TV I don’t have a lot of time for 🙂

      2. Dear Lord – my grammar and spelling in that last comment are ridiculous!
        I remember him! Ryan styles that is – funny though how I don’t remember which one Tony Slattery was? And he is the one that ‘disappeared’ weird :/

      3. Yes, he was a bit foppish and always made things rude\sleazy. I didn’t like him at the time, but after watching repeats I finally got his style. I haven’t seen him in anything for years. Shame as he was a great actor.

  4. LOL…I’m with ya’ Irene! My cat is 18 and has been with me longer than I’ve been with my hubby. When I’m sick, Hobbes comes and sits next to me and snuggles, when I get up in the morning, he wants to be held and cuddled…he knows my moods and accepts me, lol. How can my hubby compare to THAT!? Great post. Thanks for reminding me. 😉
