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.
On Saturday June 6th we’ll be appearing at the Westerville Library’s “Local Author Festival” along with over fifty other Columbus, OH are authors. (Actually Yoshi and Gatsby won’t be appearing but they’re sending their human representative.)
Greetings! Yoshi here with a new book review. Today I’ll be looking at Doctor Cat by Sarah Sobole:
As a cat detective, I’m a big fan of cats in other professions so I was quite interested in a book about a cat physician. This is a graphic novel, a collection of the webcomics that can be found at http://doctorcatmd.com/. The book is about a cat (named Doctor Cat) who maintains a medical practice and is somehow able to perform surgery without thumbs. His problems start when he accidentally leaves a mousey toy inside of a patients chest. The patient immediately calls in Lawyer Cat to make things right. The books features some great cartooning that people of all ages can enjoy while also having some sharp Doctor/Lawyer jokes for the adults.
I highly recommend Doctor Cat.
As you may know Yoshi and Gatsby are my cats and they star in the “Petectives” mysteries as cat detectives. In real life they live with a dog named Sparky Jones:
The other day I came home to find the tattered remnants of what had been full Girl Scout cookie boxes on the living room floor. Apparently putting them in a cardboard box on top of a counter wasn’t enough to keep them away from Sparky:
Later I asked him if he felt bad about what had happened. His answer:
Sparky was able to smooth everything over by making sure that I saw him reading one of my books:
Note: They say that chocolate is poisonous to dogs but whatever they use in Girl Scout cookies didn’t seem to harm Sparky whatsoever.
Cat detectives Yoshi and Gatsby were recently interviewed by Rocco the Tuxedo Cat from the “Cats, Books and … More Cats!” blog. If you’ve ever wanted to see two cats interviewed by another cat, check it out:
This actually wasn’t the boys first interview. Last year they sat down with Truffles the Tortie blogger over at Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows:
Hello people! Yoshi here with another cat-related book review. Today we take a look at Ginger the Buddha Cat (http://www.amazon.com/Ginger-Buddha-Cat-Frank-Kusy-ebook/dp/B00BK7TZ94/), the sequel to a book that I previously reviewed, Ginger the Gangster Cat. The book follows the adventures of an overweight, amoral, cockney speaking tabby cat in England. In the first book Ginger and his sidekick Sparky went through a series of adventures as Ginger planned and executed a daring sausage heist. This time he’s interested in something deeper: spiritual enlightenment. A series of dreams has Ginger contemplating his mortality and struggling to figure out how to make up for the sins of his past lives. This may not sound particularly hilarious but this incredibly self-involved feline straining against his nature to become selfless makes for a fun read. The first book was a bit more entertaining but this books concentration on spiritual themes naturally makes it less funny than its predecessor’s story of a cat plotting to rob a sausage truck. However the purpose of reading fiction is not only to be entertained but to learn and the story shows a lot about Buddhism without ever forsaking entertainment for preachiness. Recommended for those seeking entertaining and enlightening cat literature.
I sometimes wonder if the things that cats do in my stories are plausible.Then I saw these videos.
