It's all about the Caffeine & Kitty Treats


My name is Chris Blackwood. I’m the designer and creator of Blacky’s Burrow.

This site originally started out as a kitty blog about me and my feline kids.  Over time, the site became a soapbox.  I’m an independent Libertarian who most often votes Republican.  I’m a political news junkie, and a political atheist.  While I follow politics very closely, I don’t believe one single word the government tells me.

I was born in Grand Rapids, Minnesota on Thursday,  May 31, 1962.  I live about 60 mile from where I was born on the Iron Range of northern Minnesota.  I’ve lived here for around 15 years, I still have no idea why, it is what it is.

I’m currently retired due to health problems.

In the past, I’ve earned my living as a groundskeeper, a janitor, a taxicab and limousine driver, selling potato chips & pretzels.  I’ve also worked as a legal process server, and for a while I was a registered bail bond agent.

My hobbies include digital photography, listening to music, watching Sci-Fi and comedy movies, and enjoying my two little hauspanthers, Rocky & Maze.

Maze & Ashes


Above is Ashes, my little 8 week old furball.  So cute I’d love to keep him, but the management company at my apartment building says otherwise.  I did find him a good home, and it’s close so I can go and visit, and his new parent will more than likely bring him over to visit mom and dad.

I’ll add more to this page as it comes to me.

Please help out if you're able.

My Philosophy

They’re All Precious

Great Plan!


If I had a flagpole of my own, this would be flying from it. My lib neighbors would love me.

Never My President

And sadly, I don't have a front yard where I would put up a half dozen of these right next to the flagpole. Most of my neighbor would be having fits, and would be planning my murder.
