Cool Cat of the Month: Tacchino

AMARULA: Though you would never catch me dead in a bow tie, I have to say that my neighbor Tacchino looks pretty dapper! I took the time to interview Tacchino (I have a bit of a crush on him…at least I think he is a “him” and not a “they.” He is so fat that […]

Don’t Sweat the Vet Book Published

Mom just published a book on Amazon along with her sister, a veterinarian (we helped too of course but don’t get any credit!). It is called Don’t Sweat the Vet. There are lots of photos of us inside the book. It is a quick read that will help pet owners get the most from their […]

Spring Has Come Again!?!

AMARULA: Thank goodness! No one explained to me that because winter had indeed returned so too would spring likewise make a welcome reappearance! That means I can leave the house and survey my domain! You know what the best part of spring is? Not the fresh scent of the air, or mom’s tulips that need […]

Zulu Up to No Good

Sometimes when I hear Amarula crying at the door for mom to let her in, I think of alerting mom to her pleas. But then I remember how Amarula always makes fun of Biltong and me and then I start to caterwaul to drown out Amarula’s cries! Mom thinks I’m a real poet and just […]

Feline Deep Thought of the Day

Zulu: Sometimes you wake up on the wrong side of the litter box and everything seems somehow wrong and out of alignment. But I’ve discovered that all you need to do is look at things from a different angle and suddenly you have a whole new perspective on life!

Winter Has Come Again!?

AMARULA: What’s that you say? This winter thing happens EVERY year?! I wouldn’t have believed it until the snow hit the ground. The cold air and wet snow have relegated me to life indoors again and that means that I am forced to spend time with the kittens. And just as expected, I find them […]

Nemesis of the Month: Furniture

AMARULA: My nemesis of the month is furniture! Not just any furniture, but items that are low to the ground, like sofas and corner-cupboards. So low that you can’t get under them to retrieve your toys and are forced to wait until The Human finally notices all the playthings are missing! When will this human-centric […]

Will No One Rescue Me?

…It has been six minutes now that I have been attached to the tree. Clearly another plot of the neighborhood gang of squirrels to kill me. They must have put crazy glue on the tree trunk in an effort to capture me here until I starve to death. It is likely sleep deprivation will spell […]

The Squirrels are Plotting to Ruin Me

AMARULA: Alright, alright. It has come to my attention that there is a rumor going around the cat community in my neighborhood that I have been spotted running FROM a squirrel. I am here to dispel that ridiculous rumor! ME! Running from a squirrel!?? I survived the mean streets of Cape Town, South Africa for […]
