the cat who writes

Write, take naps, and take another nap

Please brush your cats, barfing up hairballs is not fun.

Cats need to be brushed. Barfing up hairballs is not fun.

I am a cat. But then, you knew that. My body is covered in thick fur. Did you know I can’t take off my coat? Even if I could take off my fur like a human’s winter coat, I don’t have thumbs, so I would be unable to undue the buttons.

The only way I can clean my coat is by licking my fur. And then I barf up hairballs. On the carpet in the house where I live. At least I don’t have to clean up the mess I make. My human staff clean up my mess.

It is my house. The humans who I chose to live have a job to pay the mortgage. I never did earn any money with my mouse hunting business which I retired from. My writing hasn’t paid any bills yet, but hopefully my autobiography will do well on Amazon.

My staff has been well-trained. They brush me every morning. And every morning they still get a lot of hair off  me.

In my life I have been brushed with many kinds of brushes. I only recommend the Oster Clean & Healthy Shedzilla Professional De-Shedding Tool

The above link is an affiliate link. Mrs. Hodges my typist is always telling people the pennies Amazon pays her helps pay for kitty litter. She is right, it does. There are four cats in my house and seven litter boxes.

I only recommend something I use myself. You can trust me. I am a cat.

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.

  • Pooh, no mice on Mojito. A big no-no.
    Although a fuel barge, you know those big black, ugly flat boats with fuel tanks on them? They use them to bring fuel to islands. In the Bahamas on of those stopped on the fuel quay, we were the next boat along the dock. A RAT jumped ship, I think she liked Mojito more, we are cleaner. I never saw, only heard it munching my melons and mango’s. I like fruit…I’m a healthy cat. The next day we bought a trap. Two days latter we caught the rat. I felt so sorry of the rat, she was so cute and in the day she slept quietly as a mouse on a folded town on top of a cupboard.
    Next time you can come and catch it for me. Don’t forget your suntan lotion.

    Dear Pooh.
    Does that brush work for doogies?
    Edelweiss

    • Dear Edelweiss,
      Oh yes, this would work great on your coat.
      Perhaps you can ask your mother to get you one.
      She would rather brush you than have to sweep up your hair from the carpets and furniture.
      All the best,
      Love Pooh

  • Hairballs? on Mojito, sorry Pooh, you cannot live on Mojito.

    • My dearest Patricia,
      I would never barf on your boat. Never, ever, even once. I would ask you to hold me over the side so I could get sick in the water.
      I would kill mice and eat them for you, if you had any in your boat. Perhaps I would eat a gecko. I am not sure.
      All the best,
      love Pooh
