The Cat Editor

Here’s the thing, Mom is a writer and often times needs a bit of inspiration whenever she is stuck. Usually I jump on her desk and try some telepathy but humans are just too dense sometimes and can’t handle the superior intelligence of a cat. When telepathy fails, I resort to editing her texts… for

Have I Ever Told You…

I am six years old but on some days I feel as though I am 20, especially living with two senior citicats. Why Mom had to be so kindhearted and rescued them as well I will never understand. I was perfectly happy without them, but it has been over a year now and I suppose

Champagne Trails: The TravelCat Diva at 6

Ever since Champagne and I left Manila in 2017, her last attending Vet makes sure to send a birthday email for Champagne on the dot. When I woke up this morning and checked my email, there it was, the beloved email from the veterinary team at Beterinaryo Sa Fort (BSF) Animal Clinic in Manila, wishing

The Cat and The Plumber (Part II)

The story continues: The washing machine master technician returned with the spare part and got right to work. I beat him home by five minutes and barely had time to catch my breath when the doorbell rang. Champagne was fast asleep in her cubby and didn’t come out to greet Mr. Cirak, but when she

Spontaneity is rare, because everyone’s lives run on a tight scheduled, usually pre-determined by some mode of transportation and an institution or place of work. Weekends then are

On The Eighth Day of Christmas… Packages go missing

Champagne misses her little trips to the tennis court. For as long as she could go out on these short escapades to the outside world, she didn’t bother much about running out into the stairwell. Winter is not something that this native Asian understands, and she is suffering from cabin fever. She thinks that every

Champagne Trails: A Quickie in Cologne

Plan A was to host an old and very dear friend in Berlin over the weekend before moving on to Bonn for the official part of her trip. She was my very first friend in India, and we have remained steadfast and loyal to each other over the many bumps in life. AD was also

Living With Cats: purr, fire, fuss

Living with a cat is anything but boring. It may not be as active and lively as with dogs, but cats – at least mine – will ensure that I am never bored or lonely. The three girls, Champagne, Cherry and Lolita are getting along quite well – meaning, the hissing has almost disappeared, and
