Happy Dad’s day to all the fathers out there. Here’s what I got from my daughter this morning:
I hope that all the Dads out there got gifts as good as mine!
Apparently yesterday was ‘National Hug Your Cat Day’ so Gatsby gave Yoshi a big hug:
Yoshi’s never been much for hugging. So he decided to start a new Holiday: National Strangle Your Cat Day:
Note – No cats were actually strangled in the making of these photos. Yoshi swears that it was just a little cat massage.
Yoshi turns 14 years old today!
Here’s the birthday boy back in 2001:
First day with his new people
And here he is a couple of weeks ago:
Hey! Stop eating the dog’s food!
Having just recovered from a medical procedure, he’s all set for another fourteen years.
Merry Christmas from Yoshi and Gatsby, the Petectives!

On July 10th Gatsby celebrated his ninth birthday! He doesn’t look a day over six.
Hello people! Yoshi here with my monthly look at the latest cat news.
-Last week was April Fools Day and for some reason you humans love to include cats in your annual foolishness. Here’s an article about a couple of cat-related pranks:http://www.cnet.com/news/cats-all-the-rage-for-april-fools-day-jokes/
Hmm. I actually like the Google keyboard for cats.
-I came across this article about the depiction of cats with flaming backpacks in 16th century German Manuscripts: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/03/140310-rocket-cats-animals-manuscript-artillery-history/
At first I thought that the cats in these drawings were wearing jetpacks. The truth is far less cool.
-Here’s a story from the UK about a cat who decided to stow away in a sofa: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2595128/Armchair-man-MEOW-Cat-stowed-away-owners-sofa-donated-charity-shop-discovered-five-days-later-heard-meowing.html
Wait, this couple named this cat Crockett and their other cat Tubbs? There are people in England who name their cats after thirty year old television shows from other countries? Weird.
-In Portland, OR a 22 pound cat attacked a baby and then trapped the adults in their bedroom: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/10/pet-cat-attacks-baby-traps-owners_n_4937904.html I don’t know what that baby said to that cat to set him off but it must have been particularly insulting.

Petectives: Under Fire just received a very nice review in the blog, “Animal Blogging with Dill the Cat”:
Anyone who likes animals needs to check this blog out. It features some beautiful animal photography, features and book reviews.
Hello people! Yoshi here with a review of a cat-related book.
This week we’re looking at Ginger the Gangster Cat by Frank Kusy. We decided to buy this Kindle e book based on nothing more than the picture of the tough cat on the cover and it was worth it. Ginger is an amoral orange cat with a thick cockney accent who scams his way into the home of a Brit couple and their adorable yet wimpy kitten, Sparky. From there the book launches into a series of episodes about Ginger and Sparky’s misadventures. The book was just about as funny as the cover. Urban cat tales were mixed with stories of exotic past lives until the two themes blended at the end. Ginger’s personality of a rough hewn cat with a deeply buried heart of gold played well against the naïve but intelligent Sparky. As a fellow feline, I can’t say that I endorse any of the tactics that Ginger employs to get what he wants but if you’re looking for an entertaining read I highly recommend this book.
