Here’s how they see themselves:
Here’s Yoshi and Gatsby’s housemate Sparky Jones:
And here’s how Sparky sees Gatsby and Yoshi:
Apparently yesterday was ‘National Hug Your Cat Day’ so Gatsby gave Yoshi a big hug:
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:
And here he is a couple of weeks ago:
Having just recovered from a medical procedure, he’s all set for another fourteen years.
Merry Christmas from Yoshi and Gatsby, the Petectives!
Petectives: Under Fire just received a very nice review in the blog, “Animal Blogging with Dill the Cat”:

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.
Yoshi and Gatsby got interviewed by Truffles the cat at “Melissa’s Mysteries, Mochas and Meows”: http://www.mochasmysteriesmeows.com/2014/02/truffles-interviewsyoshi-gatsby-from.html#comment-form
If you’ve ever wanted to see a cat interview other cats, this is your lucky day! Melissa’s Mysteries, Mochas and Meows is a great blog that concentrates on mystery novels, cats and cat mystery novels. Oddly enough, I never see much about coffee on that blog.
