It’s time to update this a little. The why of Kimchee and catnip is the two are ingredients for a better life. The kimchee is for me and the catnip for the cats. They stand in for all the things that make life better, things that make a list far to long for a blog name. The catnip is fairly straightforward. I love cats and have cats and they love catnip. I came to love kimchee during a two year residence in Korea that changed me in ways I am even now discovering.
I started this blog as a bit of therapy when I was going through some tough times. It started very slowly. I was in terrible shape medically and also in state of mind. I managed to improve my health and discovered I love blogging and love the blogging world. Our problems are not over but the cats have kept me going. I promised them a forever home and I have done everything I can to keep my promise. Several of the cats you see here have gone on. First was little Mini and then soon after Mosby. Tony lived another two and a half years after his friend Mosby. Shinki was next and then this January I lost my special girl, my first love, Simba.
I started this blog on a theme which has been retired. Other than the blog posts page it’s hard to update. I started a regular dot com page with other ideas but now I am redoing it to expand the things this blog touches on. I hope people will enjoy both, but origins are important and I began here.
