Van Nuys, CA,
February 12, 2005:
Here at FUPPPS headquarters, we have been wrestling with many
issues. Did we press too hard pre-election 2004? Did we
hurt our case for same sex NIPtuals for our furry, feathered and
slithery friends? Were we duped? The newly refurbished
right wing power is daunting indeed.
However, while big
issues following last year's elections have practically stalled us
into entropy, we are delighted to report WE ARE BAACCKKK! Pussycats
united in pawlock here in Van Nuys in April of last year have clawed
at our bedcovers and roused us again. And we are elated to
find that they still feel not only madly, blindly in love, but that
the old urges to cat around have completely subsided. NIPtual
bliss has replaced the old need to chase tail.
"I am so happy to
curl up every morning with my little Fifi," Paulette, a gorgeous
rusty Persian purred to our reporter, John deLittle, this morning at
4:00 a.m. DeLittle, who confessed to being not a little
unenthusiastic, given the hour, finally made himself some coffee,
sat down at the computer and e-mailed the story to us.

Fifi and Paulette
deLittle, a gay cat couple who were wed April 23rd of 2004 at a
little ceremony in the backyard of the deLittle home in Sherman
Oaks, California, report that being married at last is all they
could have hoped for, and more. "I never have to wonder who
will sit on the fence with me at night now," said Fifi, a beautiful
cream colored shorthair with tan boots and tail. "And I,"
added Paulette, am only too happy to escort my little bonbon to the
party. Before this, we would often go our separate ways, and I
never knew when I would see my little chouchou
again. I must say, it is so much more fun living this way.
She knows just where I like my back scratched, just when I want to
pounce on mice, which side of the litter box is mine."
usually brings an added benefit to this reporter. The cats are
so much more relaxed now that they have declared their love publicly
that they let me sleep in 'til 6 most mornings. Today, an
exception, came about because, "We just couldn't keep it to
ourselves anymore. We wanted you to tell our story to the
world, so more cats out there will know how much better it is to get
NIPtualed," both felines mewed.
As a relatively
impartial bystander, this reporter can attest to the fact that there
are added benefits to the humans involved. We'd purchased a
new sofa for the nuptials, and in complete contrast with its
predecessor, which the two little demons ripped to shreds in less
than a month, this one still has all its stuffing.
