I’m Ready for Halloween

I came across this costume and believe I will have my humans find it for me. This is what I want to be for Halloween. Then I can meet some nice bunnies and we can all be friends.

May I serve you?

Top Story in Business: Fine Dining
At the Longcroft Luxury Cat Motel in England, they have a fine dining restaurant for us finicky felines. They serve Salmon, Fresh Cod Steak, and Simply King Prawns, just to name a few of their menu items. They also have a Sunday Brunch that includes ham, free-range chicken and shrimp. While I must travel to Britain just to stay at this wondrous hotel, fine dining for cats isn’t left to just vacation time anymore. There’s a new trend out there to buy and feed cats (and dogs) gourmet meals. People all over the country are seeking out better foods for their pets, such as organic, all-natural, made in the US, and human-grade foods (and what do you mean you haven’t been feeding us human-grade foods this whole time). Humans will pay big bucks for these types of foods, as well, even while those same humans will resort to eating take-out, fast food, or pizza … again!

Add to that, that even us finicky cats – and yes, we are very finicky eaters, so keep on buying us that expensive food – even have our own restaurants that cater just to us (out with those human-only restaurants, in with the cat-only restaurants). One of the cat-only restaurants is called Duncan’s Fine Dining where they serve items such as Toona Tortellini, Fresh Nip Salad, and Pouncie Bread Man. finewineYou can even top it off with a fine wine such as the ’95 Chateau Domainecoon Majeur.

Furthermore, there are even celebrity chefs cooking for cats now, such as the famous Simon Rimmer. He’s a wonderful guy, working with top-notch veterinarians to cook up some fancy food that’s not only super tasty, but good for our sensitive digestive systems. As a bonus, I’ve included the video below where you can watch the wonderful Mr. Simon Rimmer cook up a tasty, gourmet dinner for  cats. So please watch, enjoy, and cook on, humans. Cook on! 

Top Story in Style: Cat-Fashionable Humans

fashionWe love this shirt. Sleek, colorful and fashionably fitted, it can look good on a number of different body types or in any type of laundry basket (our favorite place for shirts are those laundry baskets that have just been loaded up from a nice, warm dryer). This top is called the Festival Cats Top and can be found on the Animal Rescue site for the low price of $28.95. Us cats will enjoy seeing you humans in this shirt as much as you’ll enjoy wearing it.

Top Story in Health: How Cats can Benefit Humans
Check this out! Cats can help heal humans. While that comes as no surprise to us kitties, you humans may not know all of this. So, as the flu season winds down, remember to keep us kitties nearby to help keep you healthy and happy!

Top Story in Opinion: I used to be a Fire Hazard
BeFunky_todders.jpgI used to live in a studio apartment in Alameda, Ca. It was on the top floor of a secure, 3-story building that had been built in the 1920s. It was a fabulous apartment, mostly because I knew how to get the door open as long as it wasn’t locked. Eventually, I even figured out how to undo the lock, so mom started using the chain when she was home, always worrying that I’d still be able to get the door open enough to squeak out. So, she started placing piles of stuff in front of the door, thinking I’d never be able to get the door open. And it worked.

But when she was gone, at work, I’d still work at getting that door open. One day, mom came home to find the door ajar, thinking that somehow, someone had gotten into the building and broken into the apartment. When I came running up the stairs after her to welcome her home, she frowned at me, but was whole-heartedly relieved to know we hadn’t actually been robbed. And then told me that under no circumstance was I supposed to open the door for strangers. So when she locked herself out of the building a month later, I refused to let her in, telling her there was no way I could have known it was her. Payback’s an empty food bowl, mom!

Thank you for reading! Have a good night!

Give Me the Remote!!!

I have to see this show!!! Somebody tell me they know when it’s air date is!!!

I’m a Dapper Dan Man

My mom loves me in this tuxedo. If I do say so myself, I think I look rather dashing in it. There’s a blue one, too, that mom thinks I’d look good in, but I don’t think the blue one would go nearly as well with my green hot-rod stroller! This picture was done by the fabulous J.S. I think she should go pro with that photo-taking ability of hers!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I guess I passed out and wasn’t awake for the actual New Year. I think someone must have spiked my milk. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my New Year’s photo. I was hoping to have one professionally done at the stroke of midnight, but instead I got this one taken. I think Max, the Siamese kitty, was the one who stuck the hat on my head. I heard that Salem busted out in a long, happy laugh to see me in a New Year’s hat. I was going to wear a tuxedo, but…. well, here’s my photo.

Look What I’ve found

I just ran across an artist named Shelagh Duffett from Nova Scotia who does artwork, and a lot of it is cat-themed. I love her work; it’s beautiful. Maybe, if you like the samples you see here, you might want to wander over to her etsy shop at Alice In Paris. She has her artwork for sale at a really reasonable rate. I’m not sure how much she sells the originals for, but I do love what she has on her site. I hope you like her artwork as much as I do.

Last Minute Gift Idea

Downton-Tabby-1There’s a fabulous new book out called Downton Tabby! It sells for just $10, but I’ve seen it on sale for only $8. How can you beat that price? If anyone’s looking for a fabulous gift, for your friends, family – or ME! – this could be it! Check it out now! I just wish I could have been in it!

Kitty Artwork

There’s a lady my mom got to work with; her name’s Stefanie and Stefanie used to volunteer for Berkeley Humane Society (she might still volunteer there, I’m not sure). Stefanie recently got to go visit some really big kitties at Big Cat Rescue in Florida. Every now and then, mom goes to Stefanie’s etsy page (which you can visit here). She found the pictured choker that mom thinks is just fabulous. So I got to thinking that maybe, if you’re still Christmas shopping, I should post a few good ideas for gifts for those cat lovers in your home. So, of course, the first one is the choker by Stefanie. Click on the links under the pictures and you’ll go directly to the website mom found the item on. Just keep in mind that mom’s looking at small businesses that may only produce one of each item, so if it’s been sold already, keep looking and maybe you’ll find something else worthwhile.

Christmas Cards

Oliver's Card

Oliver’s Card

We got this card today from my good friend Oliver (aka Ollie). The picture of the card does NOT do this handsome cat justice. Oliver’s my idol because he has lots of cool hats, while I’m left without any. In fact, the only piece of clothing I have is a leather jacket that I don’t get to wear very often. In any case, how do I explain the coolness that is Oliver in his hat to my sister, Penny, who can’t see it? I don’t know, but I must have done an ok job, because she’s been dancing around the house humming La Cucaracha all morning long.
