    My human is packing for MeowWorld, also known as the Cat Writers Conference, held in conjunction with BarkWorld! Its in Atlanta and shes even one of the speakers, and I am so excited!

    She always brings an empty backpack because she knows she wont be able to fit all the cat swag in her suitcase. Ive only heard stories of all the awesome stuff she gets there so much stuff that Sparkle always gave most of it away! And this time Ill get to be the first one to see it all. So wheres my carrier and...

    I guess you have seen some other cat bloggers talking about this book, The Best Cat Book Ever. But I bet you have not seen a cat blogger get dressed up to do it! Except now you have.

    Honestly, I dont know if this is the best cat book ever (personally, I think that might be one of Sparkles two books), but it is really fun! This human, Kate Funk, always wanted a kitty and eventually she wound up with AC, a handsome black cat with lots of attitude. And through a strange turn of events, she found...

    Take that, you bad cat toy! You cant get away from me.

    Oh, excuse me! I was just having an innocent play session with one of my toys. Oh, who am I kidding? All cat toys need to be killed that is why they are cat toys! But killing cat toys and doing it well takes skill and practice. I spend hours every day killing cat toys, so even though I am still just a kitten, I think I can show you some pro tips!

    Here is the first tip: you must stalk the cat toy quietly and always keep your eye on it. The...

    Remember when my human brought home this ridiculous skeleton harness costume and made Sparkle wear it? In fact, that blog post was exactly two years ago today!

    Binga even had to wear the skullcap for a few photos.

    And my human still had that costume buried away somewhere, so guess who has to wear it now?

    As you know, I dont mind wearing harnesses, clothes or costumes. But it does kind of bother me that my human keeps digging up these old things. It shows a lack of imagination. And a pack rat...

    I feel so sad for humans without feline companionship. Cat-less humans lead dull, meaningless lives and this Buzzfeed video makes it glaringly obvious! Tell me if you dont agree.

    If you cant see the above video, click here to watch it on YouTube!

    The news items I found this week all seem to involve humans doing something, well, human-like with cats! Some were fun, some were very serious.

    You will see what I mean when you read what I have for you:

    In a stunning display of ignorance, a doctor told his pregnant patient to stop feeding a feral colony and get rid of some of her six cats. Dont worry, pet expert and advocate Steve Dale tells the mom-to-be it is perfectly okay to be pregnant, with cats. As you know, cats and books go together...

    You are probably wondering why I am wearing this dress! Well, my human thought I should be fashionable for my latest book review!

    Its The Adventures of Coco Le Chat: The Worlds Most Fashionable Feline. And it stars my blogging pal Coco the Couture Cat! I have to be honest, though, I am kind of embarrassed about reviewing this cute, stylish book while wearing an off-the-rack dress! Not only that, it is a hand-me-down from several seasons ago that Sparkle never wore. Coco wouldnt be caught dead...

  • We Are ALL Therapy Cats

    As you know, I am training to be a therapy cat. A lot of humans seem to think this is a big deal, as if it is a very hard thing to do. But I want you to know they are wrong. It is true that going into strange buildings and befriending people you dont know is something not all cats can do. But the therapy part thats easy. All cats are therapy cats. Yes, even feral cats. Let me tell you why.

    We cats make humans feel better by our very presence. Scientific studies have proven the human health...
