A Little About Me


I’m Pissy Kitty and this is my blog. It’s a place I go to pray and ponder over this and that, to laugh and joke, cry and complain, comfort and console those that are dear to me. It is my refuge; a world that I alone created wherein the truth and nothing but the truth resides. I don’t write for you. I write for myself. I want to be clear on that. I can’t promise that I’ll always be happy or have something witty to say. I am very real, I suffer through the same trials that you do. My blog reflects this.

I’m a thrice-married, middle-aged woman (56 years old and still holding out that Goldie Hawn is a distant relative and I can look young like her forever). Once a city-girl born and raised, I now reside on five beautiful acres in Iowa, surrounded by nothing and no one but mine.

I have three children: Two sons and a beautiful daughter; who have blessed me richly with four grandchildren that I simply adore.

I love: My family and the four dogs I own that have given me a second chance at motherhood; a long laugh, a cold beer, old music, sinking an 8-ball, the smell of leather, admiring a handsome man with a ponytail, good ink, and the sound/feel of a Harley under my ass while riding.

I can get lost in simple things like a good book, writing, cooking, or a beautiful set of eyes.

I’m an acquired taste. Blunt, honest, have somewhat of a potty mouth, and pull no punches when I’m passionate about something. I’ve never been accused of being a wallflower and have never met a stranger.

I’m born under the sign of Scorpio and I intend to live forever!

  5. Hi…just caught you on another blog comment and decided to do same. I’m 80 come Jan 4 and lots of “old” comments of one kind of another float out of my mouth when the occasion arises (:>. And by the way to break the puppy biting thing, snap him?her? on the nose when s/he gets hold on you. with a “NO! don’t bite”. When s/he lets go, praise! The Lab is a retiever and uses it’s mouth a lot.

    1. I’d say they use their mouths a lot. This puppy is using me for a teething ring. I’m going to have to try the ‘snap’ technique. Right now I’m chasing him around with a flimsy, red, fly swatter. Ha…ha..
      I’m going to have to stop over at your blog. Thanks for dropping by mine! 🙂

  6. Just wandered over from The Brown Road Chronicles….found your blog title. The name had me at first sight……than while reading some of your stuff I caught the term”piss and vinegar” Am laughing my ass off right now. That’s a term you don’t hear very often. In fact the last time I heard it was when my dear deceased mom named her Siamese cat P.V. That’s right-she named him piss and vinegar but just shortened it to P.V. Am so loving it!!!!! Looking forward to mornings with coffee and pissykittyslitterbox

    1. It’s wonderful to meet you Alice, and am so sorry it’s taken so long for me to reply. I’ve had some problems recently and have been incognito to say the least. I’m finally starting to deal with things, pull my head out of my butt, and am getting back to comments left for me.
      Well, you won’t be surprised to learn that piss & vinegar I got from my mother too. She was ‘old school’, born in 1925 and had me–the baby of our large family–at the age of 37, so she had all kinds of sayings that I remember and use. Probably one of my favorites that she used constantly when referring to deadbeats was, “didn’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of”…she was quite the character, may she rest in peace. Oh, and the name Pissy Kittys Litter Box, actually derived from my old cat, Pissy Kitty. I refer to my blog as his litter box, because he was the only one of four cats who would cover up his shit and everyone elses, and well…it seems I do the same with me and mine most of the time. I hope I can get back to blogging regularly as I did before and that you’ll stop by and say hello again. As soon as I’m up to it I plan to stop and visit some of the bloggers that have been so kind to drop by on me while I’ve been away. I hope to see you soon.

  7. Hello! Just found you through the Crazy Chicks Club, and you seem like a lady I would love to get to know! I’m from NY, so people tell me I’m too direct all the time. Some people can handle it, so can’t. I’ve been trying to behave so far on my blog… Anywho…so far I LOVE your blog! I just started to blog too, so I’m trying to find my way… I just subscribed to your blog! Best of luck to you ~Pam

    1. Well, it’s very nice to meet you, Pam! My real name is Lou. (Yeah, I tired of being incognito long ago. Ha..ha..)
      I hope my post hasn’t deterred you any from enjoying this forum. It really is great, you just have to be careful to keep your ego in check or you’ll end up like I did. 🙂 It sucks when you have to admit you’ve become a bottom-feeder.
      And balls to the wall, I say! I welcome all on my site who tells it like it is. I, too, tried to watch what I said, but I have no filter, so I finally gave up. You’ll feel better and your writing will improve when you stop giving a shit about what’s appropriate and not. It worked for me anyway.
      Great meeting you!

  8. I’m so glad I came across your blog. I love the tell it like it is attitude………it has got me in so much trouble of the years but we the hell cares I have no time for bullshit. I am in my late 40s and will continue to live life with no age boundries. I am a Scorpio too married to a Leo for 26 years and we are loving our freedom…our children are grown. I hope in time to be able to type what is happening in my head as you do. keep up the great work

    1. I appreciate the nod. Thank you. Eh…my mouth…or the lack of filter on it gets me in trouble all the time, but I’m either too old or stupid at this point to really care anymore, take your pick. Honesty is good for the soul. At least it is mine. And you’ve been married for 26 years? My god, you deserve a medal! I have a history of getting bored and trading them in after a few. Must be getting better though. Hubby number three and I have been together seven years now. The jury is still out if we’re going to make it to eight. Pissy comes by her name honestly. 😉

  9. Hi – just doing some blog hopping and found yours. I couldn’t find the words to comment on your latest blog, I think you’re going through too much hell for anything I could say help anyway. Glad to hear your friend is coming to stay with you soon – I think you really do need as much support as possible! Take care and I say take him to the cleaners!

    1. I appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. It figures you’d pop by on a day when I feel like I’m having a complete melt-down. I’m not always like this. Sometimes worse, but then again sometimes I’m just piss-and-vinegar happy. I say that because I have a tendency towards dry humor and sarcasm. That’s okay though, I’ve found there’s more of me out there than I thought, and most have stumbled onto my blogs. It’s not my posts that are so honest they’re delicious but the comments after. Make sure whenever you stop by to open up them comment boxes. Sometimes these women and a few men just have me rolling. Other times they’re the arms that pick me up. We’ve found camaraderie in this circle.
      I’m going to be okay. My blogger friends have made it clear I’m one tough bitch and I can get through anything. I believe em. I agree though, I’m getting something out of this marriage if I leave. I gave up the life I had to be with this man, and I ain’t just gonna walk away empty-handed just to get out of it. I had to struggle after my first two marriages ended. It won’t happen again! I’ll live in this house with this man and play “War of the Roses” before I just give him everything.
      Well, I’m going to have to stop by your blog and see who it is I’m chatting with. Again, thanks for stopping by!

    1. Oh, we probably have more than you think in common. I too love a gay man! Well, actually he’s my brother-in-law…but I still simply adore him. If you get a chance read my May 3rd post, “You are perfect just the way you are!”, and you’ll understand. I hope you two find that song you’re looking for. And thanks for the compliment on my blog name! I love it too…and it fits me soooo well! Ha..ha..

    1. Well, I wish I could take credit for that phrase. I really like it too, and it suits me perfectly. Alas, it’s my late Mother who used it. And trust me when I tell you, she used it all the time when talking about me to other people. Apparently, it’s a good thing I never came across a child kidnapper or some shit, because according to my mother I jabbered to, and trusted everyone. I guess I still jabber a lot, the trust thing…eh, not so much. Unfortunately, life has left me more than jaded.
      Hey, thanks for stopping by!

  10. o-m-g*
    i have found another lunatic on the same meds I am!
    I &heart; ur blog, and will be a constant presence from hereon out,

    I hope u dont mind; I added u to my blogroll, boo!~

  11. This is a reply to your comment on one of my blogs. I really appreciate that you spent time reading my blog/blogs. I wanna thank you for sharing what we both have in common making me feel that I’m not alone. I dont think I’m depressed but my words reflect what I really am inside. Sometimes I dont wanna read back what I’ve written because I dont feel the same way as I’ve felt before while I was writing those blogs and I take it as a sign of progress and self acceptance. I dont ever wanna sound like a gloomy person but my greatest companion is solitude. I am at my happiest when I’m with it. This whole blogging thing is quite therapeutic.
    I am looking forward to the day when I have the full desire to move on and a will to let go.
    Love and Peace…

    1. Okay, I’m responding to the last couple of comments left, and as I told the previous blogger, I could’ve sworn I’d already responded, but my mind is still in brain-fart mode from this morning’s wedding, so eh…who knows! Figured it was better to do it twice than not at all. I just find it so rude sometimes when people don’t have the courtesy just to say hello. I guess I’m old-school.
      Anyway, I’m really glad you stopped by. I feel fortunate that I found yours. I really liked it. I love diversity in the blogging community. I can’t wait to read what comes next!

  12. Your bio brought me great joy. I think because you seem to be enjoying yourself so damn much.

    Five acres sounds sooo good right now. I grew up with acres, now it’s all concrete, concrete, people, people, buildings. I will vicariously breathe fresh air through you if that’s all right.

    1. I swore I already replied to this, but it must not have gone through. I try to always respond as I think it’s just courteous to do so. If you get two responses it’s not because I’m a nut, okay? Okay, I am a nut, but you know what I’m getting at.
      You’re more than welcome to jog with me and live the country life vicariously through me. I warn you it’s more boring than it sounds. You’d better bring a good book! 🙂 If it weren’t I wouldn’t need to blog. ((yawn))
      My question, Ms. I-am-absolutely-gaga-over-Kevin Bacon-and-don’t-seem-to-mind-there’s-not-a-chance-in-hell-he’s-leaving-Kyra, why in the world would you leave the country for the city? I’m assuming work, looking for adventure maybe. Pack your bags and run home! Hurry before it’s too late and you become jaded by the bright lights and empty promises! You can write. I’ve read your stuff. Do it from a computer in the cozy nook of your office in the country. I don’t mean to sound cynical…but Dorothy put it best “There’s no place like home.”

  13. A very handsome couple you are! It does sound like we share a lot in common, I look forward to reading more in the future. 🙂

    1. Thank you! Well, I suppose neither of us might be another’s cup of tea, but together we fit pretty good. A-hem…when I don’t want to kill him, anyway. I just never grew up and moved away from the bad boy look, I guess.
      And ditto on the blog reading. I just love it when I click with another blogger. Don’t you find it interesting that you’re just a touch away from others that are clear across the world? I’m just fascinated by it, but it don’t take me much to get excited. I’m kind of a lame-brain sometimes 🙂

  14. Seriously, babe…I just hit your pic, and got the larger version…some people fail by this, you got even prettier. Damn! No wonder your Hubby had those particular ideas in mind to celebrate his 40th! Of course he wanted to nail you on a private country road! He’d be insane and rude not to want to!

    You are a very open, honest women…and entertaining, might I add?

    I held back on the “dumpster” stuff on my last comment…oh, so much to tell!

    1. You’re too funny! Why do I feel smoke curling up my ass? 😉 Seriously, that is not a flattering pic at all! Patty took it so she’d have one of the two of us, and since I’m using my old computer tower and have no pictures on it, she emailed me that one so at least everyone could put a face to the author. My husband hates it. He claims it’s because he doesn’t want to be associated with my page, but I think it’s more because it’s not really flattering for either of us and makes him look like a redneck (which he is, but probably won’t fully admit). I don’t really care. It’s not like I’m trying to get laid and this is some dating sight. It is what it is. I appreciate the compliment though. That was really nice, Spectra!! Trust me though, you’ll be far more impressed with pics of the hubby on his shovelhead when I can get them downloaded. There is also a REASON I let him catch me when he chases me!

  15. Well, aren’t YOU a Firecracker! What a great bio, one of the best I’ve ever read. You seem like the life of the party. I’ll definitely be keeping up with you.

    1. Oops…you caught me!
      Yep, someone has to be the bad-girl, and seeing how I seem to do ‘it’ so well, I guess it might as well be me.
      And right-back-atcha-babe! I just love that black, brady-bunch shit. It cracked me up! I added you to my sidebar, I hope you don’t mind 😉 I just thought others might enjoy smiling along with me.

  16. Hey, just got here to check this “About” page – you be one hot friggin’ granny, lady!

    Firgures you’re a Scorpio! I’m a Leo, and Leo’s and Scorpios get along famously, the soothsayers and See-ers say. I have several Scorpio buddies.

    Scorpios are said to be highly “sensual” (aka horny) people…

    Leo’s are proud. We feel this is fitting, as we have so much to be proud of (aka egotistical)

    It was nice to learn a little more about you…I envy you living on 5 acres! I have an old, 1935 book called “Five Acres and Independance” – I long for more property to grow grow grow things, and have horses and chickens again.

    (I also love the line “Never met a stranger”)

    1. Goodness…I’m just blushing like crazy 🙂 No, I’m kidding. I am sooo beyond shy! But thank you very much for the compliment! You know what they say, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” I don’t plan on it being over for me for a very, long time yet. As long as I can still rock those ‘chaps’ and get on the scoot I’m young.
      Yeah, I guess I used to be kind of a ‘horn-dog’, ha..ha.. but menopause is trying to put a kabosh on that. Still ‘passionate’ about writing though, does that count? As far as Pride is concerned, what’s wrong with thinking you’re right if you know you are? Works for me! 😉
      Oh, you’d love country life. I can tell just by our little pen-pal discussions. There’s just something so cool about taking your coffee outside on summer mornings in your undies if you want, and like…who’s gonna care, cause there’s no one there? Just love it!!
      Maybe you should relocate to the Midwest. Plenty of acreages here…..
