I don’t know what it is with Astrid, but she just will not leave me alone. Whenever I try to curl up and nap, she’s right on me. The only way I can avoid her is to curl up with one of my other sisfurs. But then I am still having to share. And I don’t like to share. I’m a big guy, and I like my own space. I don’t want to be conjoined to anybody except maybe my mom or dad.


conjoined cats


Mom thought we were so adorable with our mirror-image paw placement. As you can see, I am less than pleased with the situation. Astrid is the proverbial clinging vine, and if she’s not all over me, she’s in Mom’s lap. I guess I should count myself lucky that Astrid doesn’t knead me like she does Mom. Mom’s thighs look as if she uses them for pincushions. She is a total pushover when it comes to that cat!

*According to Wikipedia, National Cat Day was first celebrated in 2005. It takes place each October 29 in the U.S. It was founded by animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige “to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us.”

And what better way to follow up today’s celebration of National Cat Day than with the special post Mom has hinted about during the past view weeks. So please join us tomorrow for:


We’ll have information about The Jackson Galaxy Foundation and his and Kate Benjamin’s new book, Catify to Satisfy. Galaxy will share what he thinks we all can do to help kitties as well as what he thinks gives him the ability to connect meaningfully with both cats and their guardians.

All the Kitties Blue think this is a post you won’t want to miss. So…see you tomorrow.

Purrs and paw-pats, Mauricio

Hey Mau, you’re not joined, she just copies everything you do. They say there is no greater praise than this. She loves you and wants to show it. You are mancat enough to understand.

Poor Mau……Astrid finds you irresistible (like Allie only in a different way!). It’s a cross you have to bear for the sake of getting along with your sisfurs! Can’t wait to read the interview tomorrow your Mom did with Jackson Galaxy! WOW and DOUBLE WOW!

Hugs, Sammy
