I have my humans and my big brother with me so I am the happiest dog in the whole wide world! Julius calls himself the emperor but I just think of him as my very best friend! … Continue reading Epistles from…the dog?!

Showing Affection


Too many humans believe we cats are aloof and don’t show affection. As a shy cat, I don’t show any affection to strangers. I will show affection to my girl and other cats I’ve learned to live with. I tend to do so by rubbing up against those I love. Or licking their faces. Cleaning their fur or hair. Even head butting is a way to show affection. If you’re not sure, just let the cat get to know you first and treat them well. Sooner or later they will get affectionate with you. Continue reading Showing Affection

Cat Quotes 3:10


You can’t own a cat. The best you can do is be partners. —Sir Harry Swanson To me cats are people. People cannot be owned. Ergo, cats can’t be owned and they know it. But we can be partners and share our lives together. There are no ordinary cats. —Colette Each cat is special. Many may have things in common with each other, but none are exactly the same. It doesn’t matter if the coats are identical, they aren’t the same. They are extraordinary in their own way. Each cat who has shared their life with mine have all shown … Continue reading Cat Quotes 3:10

Living on the Street


I was once an indoor and outdoor cat. I had the freedom to roam between the house and outside as well. I was born in a woodpile in a backyard. My mother, after she abandoned my brothers and me, went to live across the street. So, I have never lived on the street as other cats, such as Nuri, have. From their stories, it sounds like a nightmare to me. To have to worry where your next meal will come from. Perhaps you’ll find mice or rats to eat. But what if there is no prey around? I guess they … Continue reading Living on the Street

Meow/Miaou


Whenever cats talk, most humans hear meow or miaou. Or perhaps even spelled a different way from either of those. It’s hard to say if the cat is reciting one of their latest poems or an article for a magazine, or just hi, but one thing is clear. Cats do talk to their humans. Cats do have things to say. Not necessarily all the time. Sometimes they ask us questions or confirm what they think we are saying to them. Make no mistake meow or miaou means a lot coming from a cat even if humans don’t always know what … Continue reading Meow/Miaou

Reflection


Sometimes humans think our eyes are glowing. Some humans find us frightening for that reason when they come across us in the dark. Our eyes don’t glow, they just reflect the light. It doesn’t take much. Sometimes the reflection happens when someone takes a picture of us and the flash goes off. It’s very obvious in the dark when a little light is caught by our eyes. I don’t understand why any human finds it so frightening. It’s a normal phenomena. It’s the way our eyes are made. There are human scientists who understand this after studying us for years. … Continue reading Reflection

Cat Quotes 3:09


If animals could speak the dog would be a a blundering outspoken fellow, but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much. —Mark Twain I’ve known a lot of cats in my life and I can say they don’t usually talk unless they have something to say. I’ve had more talkative cats that bordered on too much, but then they would stop and there would be peace and quiet. I do like how quiet cats are. Dogs I have noticed don’t alway stop talking and take it too far. The smallest feline is a … Continue reading Cat Quotes 3:09

Living with Other Cats


I’ve lived with other cats inside. Usually it’s easier when you share the home. There’s no reason for vicious fights. But cats from outside try to come in and take over. Those cats aren’t fun. They are bullies. Sometimes cats just show up and want to come in because they are attracted to my girl. It’s true she’s a crazy cat lady or gattara as the Italians say. Cats are attracted to her ever since I claimed her as my own. She did bring home a kitten and eventually he grew up. I’m so glad he did. I couldn’t stand … Continue reading Living with Other Cats

New Website


I recently started a new website. It’s just an experiment and I thought it would be a good idea to do as the literate cat that I am. I will now give book recommendations and some reviews of books that can be found on Smashwords. Those same books might be available from other stores, but it’s hard for me to know unless they are my girl’s books. If you’re interested, please check it out at Sir Socks Le Chat’s Book Recommendations Continue reading New Website
