Hello, and welcome to our blog.  I say "our" because although I, the human, am the one who will actually be writing the blog, I wouldn't have much to write about (unless I wanted to write a blog about advertising, which I most definitely do NOT, or how someone needs to invent a 12 step program for people trying to shake their addiction to Pinterest, or how I am pretty sure that Facebook is the devil incarnate, and Twitter is its evil spawn) if not for the cast of characters I'll be introducing you to a little bit later.  There are five of them, and for the purposes of my blogging efforts, they'll be known as The Paragon, The Diva, The Hunk, The Flying Monkey, and The Baby. Fair warning:  I might, sometimes, in the interest of brevity, (which is not generally my strong suit, by the way) refer to them as TP, TD, TH, TFM, and TB.  They do have names, but my little fur monsters value their anonymity, and after my/our previous blogging efforts, they have all but threatened me with life and limb if I attempt to exploit them as shamelessly as I have in the past.  In fact, they only agreed to be featured here if I would use aliases instead of their real names, and copious amounts of treats may have been were also involved.  (Now, some of you who have come to this blog from our previous one will already know their real names, but as you are our friends, they trust that you will keep this information to yourselves!)

For those of you who don't know them yet, over the next few days, I'll introduce you to each of the fur monsters, tell you a little bit about them, their histories, and personalities.  For now, though, I'll just give you a snapshot ... literally.  

 The Paragon

 The Diva

 The Hunk

 The Flying Monkey

 The Baby 

Meanwhile, thanks for stopping by, and again ... welcome!

Or perhaps I should say ...


(This is, if you were wondering, the exact doormat you would see if you visited me at my house Somewhere In Florida. Disclaimer:  It's actually not the exact exact one that is outside my door, it's really a picture I found online of the one that I have.)

(And while I was Googling pictures of doormats, I must say that I also really like this one ... )

(And this one ...)  

(And I've already decided that if I ever have to go into the Witness Protection Program, I'm going to request that my name be changed to Mat, just so I can get this doormat.  Uh oh ... does this mean I've blown my cover?)

Hmm ... I seem to have gotten a bit off track here ... but at least I've discovered something else I could possibly blog about in the future.  So that thirty minutes I spent Googling doormats was NOT a waste of time.  

Anyway, welcome again, and I hope you'll come back soon!


  1. I'm just so excited to have you back in my life, MAT! And I promise I will NEVER call you by your real names. Your secret is safe with me! (BUTT sometimes I might bark in my sleep!!!)

  5. Hello there! It's great to see you back in the blogosphere, and I like the new look - very classy. But no names?? What happened, did your crew witness a crime? Are they in the Witness Protection Program? Now that would make a good story:
    "They were looking out the window one day, and..."
    Can't you see it? LOL!

  6. Welcome back and cool doormats :)

  7. Hello All!! It is very nice to meet you! We love the mats, too!
    Your TX furiends,

  8. What happened, did the furries testify against mobsters and have to go into witness protection? We hope they enjoy their new blog.

    Don't know if you are aware but you have the evil and illegible word verification turned on and it is very hard, often impossible for some of us to decipher. Have you considered turning it off?

  9. Hi everyone, very nice to meet you all!
