Cats on the Move — Another Edition of Fantastic Gifs!

I’m hard at work recording an audiobook of my humorous title The Cat’s Guide to Human Behavior and it occurs to me that I haven’t posted any crazy cat gifs in a while. I maintain a Cat’s Guide page on Facebook where I post funny cat pictures and links on a regular basis, but Facebook is not a fan of gifs. Therefore …

1. Tuesday is HOW far from Friday?

That Time My Cat Taught Me a Lesson After Trying for Only Six Years

Black and white kittenI’ve had Charley the Kitty since she was about four weeks old (her lopsided mustache reminded me of Charlie Chaplin, and so inspired her name). For school community service credit, my daughter decided to foster a litter of motherless kittens. What could be better and more fun than raising a bunch of cute kittens? Well, turns out that’s a lot harder than it sounds. I really gained an appreciation for a mother cat, after having to bottle feed five kitties several times a day. The Kittens all over mankittens were quite accomplished at crying for food as well as getting milk all over themselves as they frantically sucked down the contents of their bottles. The mess they inevitable created caused us to bathe them every day. Drying off after the baths, they would climb up on my husband, since he was warm and cuddly, apparently.

When the kittens were old enough to adopt out, I chose Charley to keep for myself. We just had a special bond from the beginning. She wasn’t the cutest or sweetest of the cats, I have to say, because she’s a little grumpy and rather demanding. However we just clicked. Perhaps because I’m a little grumpy and demanding as well? Who can say? Certainly not my husband! Anyhow, Charley has always communicated when she feels Nov2013 049strongly about something. This could result in a hiss or a growl or a loud, demanding meow when she’s hungry or cold.

When I started to work from home as a freelance writer one of the perks was more time spent with my animals, including Charley. However, Charley had a habit of meowing in the loud and fierce way around noon every day. I did the obvious – made sure her litter box was clean and her food dish was full — but that didn’t satisfy her. My plaintive question of “What do you want?” went unanswered. Eventually, though, I figured out what she wanted me to do – namely, snuggle with her in bed at the beginning of her afternoon nap. So now, almost every day, she meows at lunchtime and I go and lay down with her as one with would with a child, and put her to sleep. I’m quite proud of myself for figuring out her message after only a few years of trying. Who says old humans never learn new tricks?Cover art for The Cat's Guide to Human Behavior

This was one of the experiences, coupled with my rather fertile imagination, that led me to write The Cat’s Guide to Human Behavior. This humorous look at living with humans from the cat’s point of view has been recently released and is looking for a home on your ebook reader or bookshelf.

You know, just in case you want to do a little fostering of your own.

Cats, Cats, Everywhere Cats – Vol. 2

I kept meaning to post on Caturday (Saturdays) but alas either my wrists are hurting, preventing that, or I’m running around like a chicken with her head cut off or collapsed in exhaustion from said running around and playing Words With Friends on my Kindle Fire – often with kitty snuggling me. And of course you cat lovers know that snuggles cannot be disturbed!

THING ONE:

This is a very sly kitty … moving slow and careful sometimes works wonders.

One cat steals food from another
THING TWO:

Excuse me, but I was looking at that!

Cat opens blind on its own.

THING THREE:

This is what I look like at the grocery store.

Cat pushes cart

THING FOUR:

A security cat. You need this.

Cat chases away racoon

THING FIVE:

If your cat DOESN’T chase away these critters, this is the inevitable result:

Racoon eats popcorn.

THING SIX:

This is my kitty, who scurrilously plots to keep me from my writing duties by plopping down on my lap:

Cat on woman's lap

THING SEVEN:
