    Maybe I shouldnt have said anything. Hold on a minute.

    Okay, thats better! Now I can get down to reviewing Texts From Mittens and telling you about my giveaway!

    Texts From Mittens began as a column in Catster, using a series of texts to detail the relationship between a cat and his human (with commentary on the side about the dog Phil, feline pal Stumpy, Mittens human grandma and neighbor Drunk Patty). Not surprisingly these hilarious texts became hugely popular and Mittens wound up with a...

    This weeks Caturday Report includes several stories that I think prove how felines, small and large, can fascinate humans in dramatic and powerful ways.

    And as usual, my blogging pals have some really great info for us kitties!

    The Tumblr Humans of New York became a sensation and will now become a book, but I bet the newer Tumblr, Felines of New York, will be even bigger! Bored Panda sometimes has posts that invite submissions, and here is one of their most powerful: before and after photos of...

Lately she has been having a fun finish the sentence contest and the winner gets a drawing of themselves by Nellies human that is somehow related to the completed sentence. Well, this week I won!

  • Of Fleas, Flea Treatments Good and Bad, and a Nice Human in Need

    from Sparkle the Designer Cat

    Friday March 27th, 2015 at 12:32 AM

    Are we ready? Good because I have a lot I want to say today!

    While it is still very cold in lots of the U.S., as you can tell from my post yesterday, it is warming up quite a bit here on the West Coast! Which means flea season is already starting. Actually it never really ends around here. And just because you are an indoor kitty, it does not mean you are safe! There are any number of ways fleas could get in your house they could even come in on your human! Around here, we are very wary of...

  • Kitty Spring in Southern California

    As most of you know, we dont have much of a winter here in southern California, but we definitely know when it is spring! The weather has been exceptionally beautiful this week and maybe even a little bit too hot! But that did not stop me from hanging out in the patio out back for a little while the other afternoon.

    I love taking in all the fresh, new smells.

    And enjoying the afternoon sun puddles.

    Theres also prey! I wasnt sure you would be able to see him, so I had my human point him out in...

    My human wrote a story for CatChannel.com about how we kitties are humans real best friends because we are honest and critical and will tell them when they are wrong! As opposed to dogs, who gloss over everything and never give humans a chance to better themselves. I know everybody loves my sweet face, and I admit, it gets me a lot of cool stuff, but there are times when I have to put on a sour puss because my human has misbehaved. Hard to believe, I know (about my sour puss, not about my...
