I discovered this week that my dear Lolita, who has feline dementia at her ripe old age of 15, formally known as feline cognitive disfunction system (CDS), reacts very well to opera. I usually have cat music (yes, it is a thing! And there is even an App for it) running in the background for

What a way to start the day! Celebrating Cherry’s journey from anxious rescue cat with PTSD to cover girl! I couldn’t be prouder of her and inspired by her determination to make up for the lost years. The announcement was made on June 8 but I just discovered the certificate today, which is just as
Many of you have met Lolita already, housemate extraordinaire of Cherry. Although I adopted her together with Cherry (they were a package deal at the shelter), Lolita had to stay back another 10 days in the infirmary to recover from her second tumour removal surgery. Lolita is 15, a cancer survivor, half deaf, half blind,
For those of you active on social media, you might have come across this portrait of Cherry last night or this morning. While writing a blog entry the other evening, she came up to me, and sat right under the very lamp that I had used for the Grace Kelly shoot and glared holes into

Dear Human Blog Readers, there are some customs that we felines will never fully understand, one being parties, and the other Halloween. I think parties and guests are a great thing, and thoroughly objected to being locked in the bedroom with Cherry and Lolita. We all wanted to join in the fun and check out
Dear Human Blog Readers, Hey there, sorry I skipped writing on my usual Sunday, but I had emotional support duties and when it comes to Mom, she takes priority. Anyway, I want to bust a myth that keeps floating around among you humans, and that is the ludicrous idea that we cats have nine lives.
Dear Human Blog Readers, Here I am again, back to tattle a tale, and basically to let you know how the nincompoop heatings is back in working condition! As promised, it took the humans three days, to get the ball rolling. Some took cold baths, others none, and the more creative ones had buckets or
