Ask Max Monday: I’m Hardly Needed This Week…

Max, dood. ME will go out with Weezer. Also, Sumo rassling is a common thing at mine house, so Tripper can come here. Also, we still think that flames shooting out of our butts sounds like fun. Also, how can ME make a Meezer shut up? He has a furry annoying voice and screams like […]

Bella is no exception Over in the U.K., the Royal Mail suspended deliveries to her household because Bella so aggressively snatched mail […]

I Dare You Not to Sqwee!

OK, I admit it: It doesn’t take much to make me go SQWEE! But I sqweed all over these adorable cat items from Tanmade on Etsy. They are inexpensive and oh-so sqweelicious. The brooches are what first caught my eye. With an eagle-eye for detail, each is a little handmade work of art sure to […]

Desperately Seeking Good Mojo

I was shocked beyond words today to learn that da grate Ted Rheingold, founder of Catster, is seriously ill. He is facing what will seem like an insurmountable struggle — not just for him, but for his wife and family. He’s a great guy, brilliant, funny, charismatic, and more than a little wacky. My heart goes out […]

Watercolor Cat Portraits: Rachel Parker Nails It!

Watercolor is a tough medium to master. It’s unforgiving; you can’t just paint over mistakes. When you apply the water it will not always go precisely where you like. For me, whose favorite medium is India ink scratched onto paper with a crow quill pen, watercolor seemed like a wild horse running away with me. Which […]

Ask Max Monday: You Got a Ticket TO Ride…So Hang On

Max, I have a kitty who knows how to open windows. He’ll open them and sit right on the windowsil, or just stick his head out. Then he’ll wander off inside the house (and maybe open another window.) He never actually goes outside, but he lets mosquitos and other bugs in, and he doesn’t close […]

5 Reasons You’ll Fall in Love with Cat Hoop Art

Kids today! Probably wouldn’t know an embroidery hoop from a garter belt. But seeing one immediately transports me to 7th grade summer school, when one of our home ec projects was learning to embroider a flour-sack kitchen towel. My fingertips were pincushions as I mastered French knots and the lazy Daisy stitch. 90% of my lifetime […]

Muscat Back Home 6 Months after Valley Fire

[ 1 ] April 7, 2016 |

Muscat Canelli–a cat I suspect of being Buckaroo’s brother given the blue eyes and tiger tail–is back home after an epic 6-month adventure. He disappeared after returning home from an evacuation forced by the catastrophic Valley Fire last year. His mom wasn’t home when the neighborhood was evacuated, so security officers from the subdivision removed […]

It’s one thing to dream up a commercial with one or two feline actors. But it’s a little insane to propose production of a commercial with a cast of half a dozen. These guys should get a Cleo for succeeding. In this foreign commercial (Thai, I think?), cats are used to sell home interior upgrades, […]
