Watching Beaches and weeping has been a hobby of mine for over three decades, and I cannot express how thoroughly it tickles me to see that Bette Midler has been living in a mash-up of C.C. Bloom’s and Hilary Witney’s houses all this time.

Midler’s 7,000 square-foot Upper East Side mansion looks like the set of any movie made from 1982-1992 about a big-city career woman who learns what really matters (usually friendship or motherhood, occasionally romance) in tragic-comic circumstances, and it is goddamn glorious. Look at these wall hats:

Check out those black and gold banisters with matching high-gloss-topped stairs:

I love. I want it. Unfortunately, I do not have the $50 million to procure it and would not be able to come up with the $25k necessary for yearly monthly (sorry, my eyes originally registered that detail, yet my fingers refused to type it) maintenance fees. Would 10,000 of you be interested in starting a commune?

Tell me your favorite scenes from Beaches. It’ll keep you honest.

Shelter Cat Update!

Adoption news! Juneau, the only remaining FeLV+ Kitty, went to his forever home this week. This leaves us without an FeLV+ Kitty for the first time in over 15 years!

Also adopted: Everett the black kitten, who watched all of his siblings get adopted last week.

He leaves behind his new best friend Toulouse, but that story will have a happy ending this week. Toulouse is scheduled to go home Tuesday.

BTW, those wet spots on my pants? Drool stains.

Also also adopted, Indy and Penn, best described as adorable squirmy pin cushions with the points facing outward.

Guthrie has moved into Juneau’s old room from his transition cage.

Welcome Committee, Early Early Morning Edition.

Noms time? Red will be happy to assist you in opening the door to facilitate your delivery.

He will also wait patiently while you de-fur his fleece.

Much better.

Enjoying His New Throne Bruce.

Damn Finger Dents Bruce.

Fur Restoration Bruce.

Repositioned Bruce.

Mojo, my favorite little peanut.

Dover is still not on board with my presence yet. Normandy wishes he would so he can stop smushing her, TYVM.
