by Janet Blue on August 4, 2013


Furst of all, I’d like to know why it looks like I am wearing flowers on my head? That I have a huge gouge on my nose means I’m a tough guy, not a big ole sissy.

Mommy says that I am a bully, but I beg to differ. I’m just a male cat defending my turf. I’ll admit that I might engage in a little unprovoked rasslin’, bitin’ and paw smackin’ with my sisfurs, but I don’t deserve gettin’ a lickin’ like some punk, street cat and then bein’ forced to wear flowers in my furs.

Let it be known to all that I’m protestin’ my female human’s lack of respect for my position as top man-cat (well, actually the only man-cat) in this family. From now on, I refuse to refer to her as my mom or to bestow any term of endearment upon her. She was totally out of line and disrespectful in parading me in front of my fans in such an embarrassing manner!

Purrs and hugs, Tough Guy Mauricio

Hi efuurybuddy…Janet here.

Recently I was contacted and asked if I would announce the following, which I do with pleasure:

The creator of the book A Letter To My Dog™ is working on the natural follow up: A Letter To My Cat.  The upcoming tome will feature a compilation of cat portraits accompanied by personal letters from devoted cat owners.

To create a volume of pet owners’ stories, the team behind the book is putting a call out to cat owners for story and photo submissions.

You can potentially be featured in the book by submitting a letter to your cat along with a photo!

The book team requires the following for submission:

•    Your letter: Please start it “Dear XXX,” and remember to sign it (Love, Mom / Dad…etc.). The length should be under 500 words.

•    Photos: We need you to submit a few photos of your cat alone, no people. Ideally, these would be your own photos, but if they are professional, please include photographer information so we can contact them for the rights if necessary.

•    Contact Info: Please include your full name, mailing address, phone number, email address and any website/blog/social media info.

Remember to include any stories that highlight your cat’s unique personality and expresses how much he/she means to you!


Deadline for submissions is 8/20/13.

OMC, Mauricio! I hope that was not my Beauteous Misty May who did that to you! On second thought, it makes her even more exciting if she did.

I still don’t get why you had to pose in front of that stoopy flower though.

Mauricio…you look a bit like a thug with that huge scar…um…scratch! But the flowers on your head bring out your softer side so you look like a flowery thug , which isn’t all that bad…:p

We’re with you Maurico! The flower has got to go! No real mancat would have flowers and battle scars together. I would be calling her the M word either. Why do you think we only have an apprentice? She hasn’t earned her whiskers yet!!

Hi Kitties Blue!

We saw your comment/question about Tai, and wanted to let you know that she is NOT deaf. We think perhaps she just hasn’t shown well to prospective adopters, or maybe it is because of her age (9). In any case, we will keep trying to find her a home, and in the meantime, we’ll all keep on loving her during her stay at PAWS. 🙂

What a fun idea (letters to my cat) I’ll have to look into that, thank you for sharing.

That book sounds delightful!

Mauricio, don’t worry, dude. That scratch makes you look all tough and mancatly for sure. And the flower shows that you’re still a little in touch with your sensitive side. All in all, a great mix! 🙂

Well, we think the flowers offset that scratch and makes you look tough, yet sensitive. Girl cats LOVE that, don’t you know? Purrs…

I think that photo sends a mixed message Mauricio – the flower on the head and the scratch across your nose – well – you see what I mean? Anyway, when you’re a manly mancat those things just don’t matter…..and tell your Mom (oops – I mean caregiver!) that we appreciate the info on the book…..who knows….maybe my Mom will get off her….um…chair and respond.

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

Well I totally agree. This insult needs to be paw whacked immediately. Unless treats are given to atone, of course.

Keep the Man Cat flag waving Dood!

Wow, what a scratch! That and the fact that you can comfortably have flowers on your head shows exactly how MANCATLY you are!

Happy Monday!
