The Cat Who Writes™

I am a cat. I write.

I am helping Mrs. Hodges make a cat costume

Mrs. Hodges is making a cat costume and I was helping her. The fabric kept slipping off of the table, so I sat on the fabric for her. Cats like to help humans cut out fabric.


Pooh Hodges, the first cat who writes, wrote a book, How To Be a Cat. The book is for humans, humans who want to be a cat. I am already a cat so I don’t have to read the book. The cat costume will be a hat, mittens, cat feet and a tail, just like the cat on the cover of the book.


There are fifteen steps in the book, then you can say you are a cat. And, when you do all fifteen steps you get a certificate. It is in the book. It looks like this.


I don’t need a certificate because I already am a cat. But humans, they like to have certificates. I think it is cute. The veterinarian has certificates on the wall in his office. Maybe he would rather be a cat? I will have to give him a book the next time I am in.

Mrs. Hodges is going to mail the cat costume to Jimmy Fallon. She thinks he might want to be a cat.

Would you like me to help you sew too?
