Meow














Don't let that innocent face fool you. Bogey is one tricky kitty. Seems like its one cat-tastrophe after another. If he isn't opening doors and drawers, stealing food, or knocking breakables off shelves to the floor, you can bet it's because he's taking a cat nap.

On the bright side, Bogey gives me fodder for stories. Plenty of fodder. His antics have been featured in more than one essay collection. Now he's got another book to add to his growing list of credits.

"The Great Curtain Caper" will appear in Not Your Mother's Book on Cats, coming soon.












Unfortunately, all the notoriety has gone straight to Bogey's head.










Bring on the paparazzi, woman. I'm ready for my close-up.

I don't care if he is a male. This feline has definitely become a diva.

Pat--Just the title of your story in the upcoming collection brought back memories of the "fun" my cats would have with curtains and drapes. Drapes became a piece of playground equipment (until they got shredded).

It sounds like you will need to bring Bogey to any book signings, so Bogey can leave a paw print. That seems only fair, since you probably neglected to get him to sign a release...
