purpleeyed lemur long-limbing it
up curtains instead of vines, she slides
sinuous into cat-shaped corners.
Nkemkama means “mine is the best” in Igbo.
When you publish your book you may need a glossary – love it!
🙂 Thanks, Julie. Don’t know if you know this about me or not, but I raise and show Siamese, and “Kemmy” is my newest and most vocal addition. Love her to pieces already.
na ezia, aha nke a amaka! In truth, the name is beautiful!
Thanks, Noel. Did that in honor of a wonderful Igbo friend I have–yourself!
This is beautiful Susan 🙂
Thanks, Polly. I will post a picture of the inspiration when my camera saunters back up from Florida, where it is being used to document a remodeling project. This kitty is STUNNING, not to mention very talkative and sweet. Had a hard time trying to read on the kindle last night. She kept touching the screen with her paw, and sending me pages ahead.
I’ll look forward to that Susan 🙂
Igbo. You really do have an amazing vocabulary. I had to google this. Lovely again.
Alice–got that one from my friend and duet partner, Noel 😉
Har… I miss those days. We had a macramé plant hanger that received lots of kitty play. Inside it, outside, to the top, upside down…
🙂 YES! This kitty is a sprinter gymnast.
You do need to visit Nigeria soon, Susan. This is wonderful 🙂
Celestine, if I visit now, I will never leave. Too COLD where I am!
Ha ha ha 🙂
