The Cat Who Writes™

I am a cat. I write.

Meet Yoda, a cat who moved from Tennessee, USA to Kathmandu, Nepal

Today’s guest post is by Yoda, a cat. Yoda is the star of  a blog about cat care. Fluffy Kitty. Humans, Brittany and Paul do all the writing there. Now we get to hear from Yoda! A cool cat who was rescued from an animal shelter in Johnson City, Tennessee and then moved to Kathmandu, Nepal.

Yoda’s Story

From Tennessee, USA to Kathmandu, Nepal

What’s happening? Where am I? How did I get here?

Those were my thoughts on July 23rd, 2015, the day I arrived in Kathmandu, Nepal. When my meowmy first told me about this place I thought she meant we were going to a cool cat park or something, you know, “CATmando.” But I was wrong.


It all started not two weeks earlier when my meowmy quit her job and moved back home. She seemed so rushed, I didn’t understand why. Then it kept getting weirder. She took me to the vet twice, yet I wasn’t sick. Something about an international health certificate to travel? Heck if I know. Seemed serious though, the way meowmy was stressing out. I gave her lots of cuddles that day.

On July 22nd we took a long car ride. I loved it, like always. But then I had to get in my carrier. It got really loud. Humans were everywhere. What are those big roll-y things? I hope they don’t toss me around like that too, I thought. Luckily my meowmy was with me to keep me safe.


Before long, meowmy had to shove my carrier under a seat in a strange looking vehicle. I’ve never seen a car that big. The noise it made was so scary I didn’t move or make a peep, err, meow. I was relieved to get off that thing, but I didn’t know that what was ahead was going to be even worse. “Cargo”, meowmy said. She said I shouldn’t be afraid, that I’d see her again soon. I believed her. She gave me one last kiss and hug before disappearing out of sight. At that moment I knew I should’ve went potty before leaving the house.

What’s happening? Where am I? How did I get here?

Something smelled like rotten fish. I was hot and sweaty and couldn’t see very well out my carrier. I can’t begin to tell about the crazy stuff I saw. My whole world just changed. This is going to be a real adventure, I thought.

Here I am, almost 8 months later. Life outside is pretty exciting, but my favorite thing to do is to sit and watch the pigeons out the window. I have all I could ask for; a warm bed, healthy food, fun toys, and two parents who love me.
