Well, you know I'm an emotional kitty. Things tend to go up and down for me. Well right now I am very excited to announce that Ian and I are now partners. I know it seems fast. It is. But it is wonderful. Everyday we grow stronger together as a couple. Our partnership signifies our commitment to each other and the desire to grow stronger still. Thank you everyone for your love and support.
It had been Rickie's dream to have a club of his own. With his husband, Gabriels, he proudly opened Moonbeam Ranch. Sadly, due to financial troubles, they have closed their doors. Best wishes and good luck to you and hope to see you open again one day!
Things were just too perfect. Why did I have to go and ruin that by opening my silly kitty mouth? I've just been happier than I've ever been. I got a bit over-excited. No matter what the future holds, I still messed up the moment and can never undo it.
Well, when they talk about paradise, I know what they mean! Ok, so things are going better than I ever expected them to with Ian. For two people who wanted to take it slow, we have fully plunged into a great relationship. I sometimes am afraid I might be dreaming this wonderful man, but then I look up and see he is still there, gently stroking my tail or caressing my chest.
Today we spent some time at Wild Coast. It is so beautiful there. It was very romantic to say the least. Every moment seems magical. We then built our own little private paradise and spent hours dancing or lounging on a bamboo raft in the waves.
I wish that it didn't have to come to and end, but I needed to work at The Temple at Bad Puppy. Unfortunately, I don't think I will be remaining dancing there. I have no problems what-so-ever with Bill or anyone at Bad Puppy, I just don't think right now is a good time for me to be working there. I wish them all the best there, I really do. Bill does a good job of running the club.
I also did some shopping with Octavia and Galen this afternoon. In the upcoming weeks i will be landscaping my yard. yay!! Well, with help of course. hahaha.
Oh, how I love the sunlight I've been basking in. Well actually that was moonlight in the clouds. lol. Anyway, I've been so happy lately. I found a man who makes me completely happy and I have smoothed out some of my problems... unfortunately in doing that i have caused another rift. I know that my actions may have hurt him, but I still loved him. Franzi, if you read this. You will forever be in my heart. I wish you well in all that you do. Peace. Nev
OMG!! I can't even think straight... well, being gay doesn't help that matter, hahaha!!! (thinks of the joke, "I'm so gay I can't even think straight...") Hahaha... Those truly amazing moments sneak up on you and take your breath away. Today started out innocently enough... some friendly dancing at Tiger's. Then I went shopping with Ian. I know we were supposed to be saving up money right now, but we couldn't wait any longer. After a visit to TT Designs and over L$4K later, Ian and I found heaven in the clouds. The music, the timing, everything PUURRRFECT. My heart skips a few beats just thinking of the beauty of it all. Me and my boyfriend, together!! I never want to wake up if this is a dream because it is all too wonderful!!
I love my Sanctuary in the sky over Wildcat Beach. It sits just above the clouds, providing such wonderful views of the water below, the stars above... and the sexiest man I know in my arms. I finally got some music playing up there today. There is nothing in the world quite like dancing under the stars with the man who makes you feel happier than you have in your entire second life. It is peaceful and perfect up in the clouds with Ian. I'm not going anywhere... he's not going anywhere... that leaves us happily up in the clouds. I never wanted to jump to conclusions or push anything... but I think it is safe to say we are a happy couple. Neko Nevie has a boyfriend??? Well, he is one happy kitty! Ian is "The Cat's Meow"!
So, what does Nevie do when he isn't floating on his own personal cloud? He hangs out with friends and works. Right now I am working for 4 different clubs around the grid.
Ok, so what are these places? Well, let's see... Hell Razor's is a new club opened by my sister, Tori, and best friends Nerys and Cooper. Tiger's Eye is a club I have worked for since the beginning of my dancing career, owned by Rod, Quagmire and Rickie! Even when I'm not working, I still tend to end up there, that is my "family". Stallions is run by my good friend, Gareth, who had taken over running Zippers and then branched out on his own. Bad Puppy is one of the most popular gay sims. I can also be found frequenting my Best Buddy, Rickie's, very own club, Moonbeam Ranch.
Well, with all this going on you would think this little kitty would be completely worn out... well, we will see, I just started dancing again. LOL. But I am trying to save up money. Well, most of the time I am thoroughly distracted by my wandering mind... bet you can't guess what it is thinking about... hehe. *blushes* Aww, you guessed it!!

In my many long dark months, several friends were by my side telling me to never give up hope. Though it was hard and at times I wished the struggle would end, I knew that the reward would be worth the effort. I could mention names of those who stood so closely by my side and kept me in their thoughts and prayers, but they already know who they are. I just want to thank them from the very depths of my soul.
As I returned to a peaceful place with sunshine, I still felt an outsider. But, again, my friends told me never give up hope. I smiled and went about my days, still wondering why did I even bother hoping for something. But now I know why.
I never knew why I needed it, but I knew I did. At times I wondered why I even cared. But I held true to that small glimmer of hope that burns eternally. And It has made the world a better place.
OK, so why is Nev in such a deep thoughtful mood? Because I am helping a friend through a rough time in his life. I want to pull him out of the darkness as he did for me. I know that I can't do that. If that was possible, I'm sure he would have pulled me out a long time ago. All I can do is offer words of support and encouragement to him in this hard time for him. I know at times that glimmer of hope seems too hard to see, but it is always there, never lose sight of it.
Which brings me to my coming out into the sun announcement!! Why is Nev so happy!? Well, for one thing, my real life seems to be doing well, my new medication is working so far. And secondly, my second life could not be better. If you had asked me a week ago my thoughts of finding someone who really makes me happy, I would have told you I was barely holding on to hope that I would. But, I did hold on and could not be happier!
So, I told you about Ian, how we met and our first couple of dates together. Well, the continue to be more and more special each day. We spent some private time together in my sky sanctuary and then did some sight-seeing in "Scotland". I really love just going and exploring places with him. We also did some dancing at Tiger's Eye and then just hung out together. Today I left him some flowers to let him know I was thinking of him. I really enjoy his company more and more every day. He bought a couples dance kit and we danced above the clouds with the stars and moon above us. It was the most special time together. He makes my heart beat faster.
So, what does the future hold for Nevie? Well, stay tuned to find out. I really hope it includes Ian. I have never felt more alive than I do with him around me. I knew it was strange to both of us, but we have taken to this new "togetherness" quite well so far. I have never wanted to push anything on him, but it comes so naturally. I feel like I've known him for longer. I know there is so much we both still have to share and I know it will come in time. For now I have my "special friend" title at Grampian Estates. He is the Heart of Grampian... that makes me Grampian's Heart.
Ah, I am the happiest kitty alive!! He is better than the best catnip I can find! I want to keep him forever in my arms. Thank you Ian for making everyday beautiful!
Well, things are going fabulous for your favorite feline. I don't think there is anything that could make these past few days better... well, besides the sadness that I have for my best mate, Rickie, who lost his job this week. Best wishes to you, my friend! Love ya always.
Ok, so here is what is going on. You all know how I love to play around as a Snow Leopard. Well, that is fun, but I am currently back to my normal self. I can be found as Neko or Human. I have been told by a friend that he thinks I'm sexier as myself. I've also been told by a very special friend that he liked my creativity and thought I was such a nice guy, but when he saw me in human form he had to smile. Don't worry, my pretty white paws will still make some showings from time to time.
So, about this guy I made smile! As I said in my last blog, I was visiting my buddy, Galen, when he introduced me to his landlord. Ian owns the three sims that make up Grampian Estates. I thought about moving there because I like the work he has done and much more important, I like him. Hehehe. But he has a rule about not dating the landowners. All is well, I would rather have him in a more special role than landlord. Lol. We spent a quiet evening getting to know each other. We had a few hot kisses in the waterfall and lay out under the stars. Today we went to see DJ ReZ make his return after a three week hiatus. Ian was having a great time at Red Lion, a Scottish Pub. I don't know if it was the great atmosphere, the wonderful friends, the awesome tunes, or the sexy man he was dancing with, but Ian left with a smile on his face. So did I!
I made some new friends tonight at Red Lion. I saw some friends I haven't seen in a long time. I even got to give my little Pug buddy, Xander, some scratches behind the ears. Hey, I even won the contest for Best in Tattoos. LOL. I wasn't expecting that at all! Thanks!!
I also learned how to use Rez Faux to pack up the house I've been building. I have safely packed it up so it can be moved easily and set up again quickly. That left me room to put up a sky sanctuary overlooking the clouds and ocean.
As I was logging out to go take care of my ailing stomach, I noticed that JC was on. I wished him a speedy recovery. It is good to see that he is home and doing better after emergency surgery this past week.
Well, this sleepy kitty is ready for bed. I'm off to curl up in my basket and dream about a certain sexy scotsman. I know it is strange and a little scary to enter into a new relationship. Ian, if you read this... I'm willing to take this as slow as needed to make it comfortable for you. Don't worry, I won't be running off! So, no worries, Mate, I'm a patient man. Mwah!
Well, I have been a whirlwind of emotional ups and downs in the past week, I blame it on the changing medication. I am happy to say that I am doing well. I have talked through some of my problems and had such great support from my closest friends.
Rickie, I know you cringe everytime you see me start to talk to you, not knowing which side of me you will get. So, thank you for sticking by me through my insecurities. Love ya babe, never forget that. I hope you get to feeling better soon.
Galen, you have been my star lately. You used to get so much more frustrated by my low self esteem but lately you have been so supportive. I love you so much, babe. Thanks for always picking me up when I fall and kicking my ass when I need it!
Octavia, You have been the ears I really need lately. Thanks for holding my hand when I needed some moral support to face my fears. Thanks for holding my hand when I am just feeling down. And thank you most of all for cheering me on always!
Benji, I am so glad that our friendship has gotten stronger. You really are a fantastic guy, I am forever grateful to have you as part of my life.
Q, thank you for listening to me, allowing us to clear the air. I am grateful for that.
Gareth, I'm always around if you need someone to talk to. Thanks for keeping my job for me while I was away. *blush* Sorry I missed my first day back due to flirting. LOL.
Franz, thanks always listening, you know I'm always there for you to listen to you.
Ian, I am so glad Galen dragged me out of my cave and into the sunlight. I enjoy talking to you and look forward to talking more. I hope to get to spend some time together. I'll help you find some good couple animations. Hehe, we can try them out.
Ok, now that I've said all that, I will explain what is going on. Well, parts of it anyway. I have cleared the personal air between me and my best friend's lover. I feel relieved that I can now be a part of Rickie's life without feeling unwelcome.
I have also met someone who I enjoy very much talking with and hanging out with. While I was hanging out with Galen, his landlord, Ian, stopped by. We all went to the river and sat there fishing. Ian is an incredibly good looking guy with a great personality. I have to pause to blush here now that I've said that. Hehe. You all know I'm a big flirt, but when it comes down to actually asking a guy to do something with me, I am terrified. lol. Well, I'm making progress. We are going to get together tomorrow. *takes a deep breath*
By the way, I should have never been introduced to fishing!! LOL. It is too much fun.
One more thing before I go, I want to send out my thoughts and wishes of get well to JC.
Wow, today is Rickie's "Rez Day". Unfortunately, he is spending the day battling the flu. I wish I could say I have known him as long as he has been on, but I didn't come along until later. I have known him since I've been on though, or at least since my first couple weeks. I can honestly say that my life is better with him in it. He really is one of my very best friends. I don't want that to be cause for alarm from his devoted husband, Gabriels, I don't think of Rickie that way. I truly love him, with every beat of my heart... but not in a "partner" type of way... in a best friend, family type of way. I can't live without him. So, Rickie, Happy Rez Day! I love you so much, forever!! *size*
Well this snow loving kitteh spent the holidays basking in the sun of the Caribbean. I have returned and am in good spirits. I look forward to this new year. New adventures await me!! Maybe even new love. My flirtatious eyes are wandering lately but nothing serious.
Equinox, my friend, I know you are going through a lot right now. Never forget that I'm here for you.
Benji, my brother, I know things have been hard for you lately. I am so excited about your date for Valentine's Day!!
Rickie, my dearest friend, I feel so lost without you!! I hope you had a great time on your vacation. I hope you haven't forgotten that I'm always here for you. Hehehe.
Danny, I haven't talked to you, but I have been thinking a lot about you. Hope to hear from you soon.
MTD, you are a great guy. Anyone who will take in a friend who needs a place to stay, is a wonderful human being.
Haptic, I'm sure we can all get together for some catch-up time. Hehe. I look forward to seeing you and Damien.
Jason, It has been great talking to you. I love getting to know you. You are such a sweetie.
Franzi, my brother, I'm excited to hear about your new master! I wish you so much love!!
I want to send out licks and kisses to all my special friends who have not mentioned already: Galen, Octavia, Tori, Jamie, Skyler, Gareth. Lenny, Nerys, Puerilis, Chopper, Justyn, JC, Van.
