My BEAUTIFUL black cat Velcro is a big part of my life.
I adopted her almost 4 years ago from the SF SPCA, which brings a smile to my face anytime I hear they are organising or hosting an event. I hope the upcoming adopt-athon this weekend goes great.
Here is their latest video. Bonus kitteh points if you know where the video was shot.
If you did watch the complete video above, the Portlandia-spoof features the gorgeous Cammy. She is a hamm:
Since Cammy is not shy at all, my friend Richie also snapped while we were on the back of the truck drinking coffee (not sure the truck is still there) but this kitteh is an absolute rockstar, roaming the greatest garden in the city:

The location where the video was shot is Flora Grubb Gardens, located in the Hunter’s Point/Bay View district here in San Francisco.
Coffee and plants, great place to spend time with friends or alone.
I love this spot, and have gone there many times throughout the years with family and many of my good friends, highly recommend it if you have not yet been. There are many previous posts here.
Ample vehicle+bicycle parking as well as the t-line about a block away (3rd street).
How a quick simple 10-second radio announcement inspired this post, is a rather linear sentiment on how making a decision to adopt a pet changes your life. Animals are keen to know when you are feeling like shit or in pain asides many positive perspectives added to one’s daily routine.
Loyal loving companions.
Having Velcro around has been a very loving experience, I am very happy I decided to adopt her.
I am an even bigger animal lover than I could ever imagine.

Do you have pets? Have you been to your local shelter lately?
I love my cat. I’m sure she loves me too.
Where was I? Well, I was sick as hell.
I got hit with the flu pretty hard last week. It kicked my butt.
I’m pretty sure my cat Velcro really thought I was in the process of becoming an actual cat, as I slept so much. After a whole week of rest, I’m feeling a lot better.
Been drinking lots of hippie teas –gotta spoil the body with a little change! and looking forward for my early caffeinated mornings once again. I’m also pretty sick of soup. ish.
Ok, let’s hope this is a beginning for another healthy streak.
After spending some time with Velcro, mi beloved beautiful cat, we came to terms.
She promised me not to give Frenchie the slashing-tires treatment, since I got new rubber. Deal.
Last week I finally got both new tires, altogether. Many thanks for all your recommendations, I really appreciate it =)
As an extension of my persona, it is quite complicated keeping up with the Frenchie, with the exception that I am not French… at any rate, the ratio of the rear can get away with being 27 x1/4 so I got the Continental Gator and for the front it has to be a 27 x1/8 due to the complication of the spacing between the basket base, the front fender and the brake.Well anyways. We are once again Polk street-ready.
This time the nice young men at the Sports Basement (I’m a huge fan of their open-late hours) took good care of Frenchie. Photographed below is Thai-Son. Sup!

New year, new gadgets. I’m stoked =)
