31 Days In A Cat’s Life




Good Morning my dearest friends,

I have decided to  do the 31 day blogging challenge, hosted by It will be a challenge, as I have been napping more than I have been writing. And my typist, Mrs. Hodges has been too busy to type for me.

Please tell her to stop moving the furniture.

in a cat's life

I don’t mind when she cleans the seven litter boxes twice a day, but I wish she would quit moving the furniture. I can’t find my favorite catnip toy.

Please join me for the 31 day blogging challenge. You can check in here every day. I will post links to all the stories this month, or you can subscribe to my blog, and I will send you my stories directly to you. I promise to never give away your email address, not even to my typist.

And if you subscribe, I will send you my free e-book. You can even print out the pictures and color them in.

Can you see the little rectangle below Email Address? Write your email address in there, and then click on the bar that says, “Push this button.” Then I send you a nice little note and once you confirm you really want to receive my stories, you can download my book. For free even. You don’t have to pay me anything. It is really free.

p.s. I am a real cat. I dictate and Mrs. Hodges types. If you would like to leave me a comment please click here. I would love to meet you.

 p.s.s I also have a facebook page if you would like to be friends there as well. Here is the link. Pooh Hodges, Writer on facebook.

Day 11  Mrs. Hodges moved the furniture today. She was not able to type for me.
Day 13 Mrs. Hodges moved the furniture again today. I wish she would stop moving it. Maybe I should fire her.
Day 14 She still hasn’t been able to type for me. I will tie her to the chair and get her to type for me tonight ———
She finally had time to sit down and type for me. Maybe I scared her. After all. Cats make good guard cats. 
Oh dear me! I missed  so many days. Please forgive me.
Love Pooh

About Pooh Hodges

I have had a hard life. Born to a single mother in a back alley in Wisconsin. I never knew my father. My sister died young. I am writing my story. Look for it.

    Very convincing article about catnip. I think my first cup of coffee in the morning must be like the first sunbeam you find in the morning. I would like to enjoy both actually – at the same time. ahhhh the wonder of life. Now off to get a coffee while I study! All the best. Rhonda

    • Good Morning Rhonda,
      Did you already have your first cup of coffee? I am still looking for a sunbeam, it is a bit overcast. But, I did enjoy my catnip.

      May I please so forward as to ask what you are studying?
      Education is so valuable.
      I am teaching the kittens how to read. So far, they only know the number 3.
      All my best,
      Love Pooh

  • I found you via the 31 days challenge! I am interested in your book, so I may come back and subscribe via email, but then later I will most likely delete it, as I prefer to follow via Bloglovin. I get too many emails!! I look forward to your stories:)

    • My dearest Lee,
      I am delighted you have stopped by to visit. I look forward to chatting more later. And please, I don’t mind if you want to read the book, and later unsubscribe. The book is a gift.
      As always,
      love your friend.

    Hi Pooh — We are already subscribers (yhea!) and we look forward to your stories this month, along with our furballs. They don’t like the furniture to be moved either 🙂

    • My dearest Maria, and MacKayla the Empress, William the Orange, Joel Gray and Giblet Paws (as well as Willow and Zuna the Guinea Pigs)
      I am so happy you have taken time out of your busy day to read my stories.
      Maria, please give all of the fur balls a hug from me. That may take you all morning, as cats do love long hugs.
      And a big hug from me,
      Love Pooh

  • Mr. Hodges, I will be sharing your blog with all of the people who worked with me at Simply Cats. I can’t believe I didn’t run across it sooner! Can’t wait to see what this month brings. Thanks!

    • Hello Lucien,
      Thank you so much for sharing my blog with your friends. I do love cat people. Please give my regards to your friends at Simply Cats.
      Will you please tell me what Simply Cats is? And Lucien, never be afraid to ask a question. The best way to find out what you don’t know is to ask.
      All my best,
      Love Pooh

    Happy to have 31 days of your stories, I want you to know this is your Nana!

    • Hello Nana,
      My typist, Mrs. Hodges, talks about you a lot. Did she move the furniture when she lived at home when she was a child? Where did she learn this bad habit?
      I have always enjoyed your visits when you have come here from Canada. I do hope to see you soon.
      All my best dearest Nana,
      Love Pooh

  • Edelweiss

    Dear Mr. William P. Hodges,
    I am so glad you will be having more stories this month.
    I really miss hearing from you and am always asking Mom if you have written.
    I also go outside and look for you.
    I am not sure i can count to 31, but Mom says it will be ok.

    • My dearest Edelweiss,
      I am so happy to hear from you.
      Please forgive me for not writing for so long. This summer I concentrated on napping in every sunbeam I could find.
      Please don’t give up hope. Perhaps one day we can meet. Unfortunately I can’t walk to your house.
      You have a good Mommy, she can help you count to 31.
      All my best,
      Love Pooh

  • Rhonda

    I am so glad I get to read 31 days of Pooh Hodges cat stories. I love your posts . . . .

    • Good Morning Rhonda,
      I am so glad you are glad. Thank you for telling me you love my posts.
      My mother always thought the mouse hunting business was a better career. But writing makes me happy. And being happy is a good thing.
      I may eat the occasional mouse, but the rest I am happy to let run free.
      Sending you best wishes for a lovely day.
      Love Pooh
