Come on, you can see
the resemblance, can't you?
A while back, I started naming my kittycats after jazz singers/musicians. I began with Ella Fitzgerald M*, who is no longer with me. The real Ella is my favorite female singer. I currently have 3 cats: The elder statesman is Felix, a 15 year-old Siamese that I had before the jazz-mad craze began. Then comes Maxine, an approximately 6 year-old black Persian mix that I rescued from my work and named after singer Maxine Sullivan. The baby of the group is Fletcher Henderson M*, another seal point Siamese, almost 4 years old. When I first saw him, his little moue reminded me of the the above picture of Mr. Henderson. No, really!
The Fletcher Henderson Orchestra, performing his own composition/arrangement of one of my all-time favorite instrumental numbers:
Down South Camp Meeting
When Your Lover Has Gone
I wish I could find a postable link to my favorite Maxine number, Irving Berlin's "Blue Skies." Some of you may have heard it fairly recently as the background music on an HP commercial.
I will do some more pictures of my kitties when I finally break down and buy a camera.
