As always, we aim to enlighten and entertain cat lovers.  Our highlights this week included:

  •  Our post about Grumpy Cat and The Friskies Awards. Yeah, I got to hold her and swooned like everyone else.
  • We also did a darker, tongue-in-cheek piece, Is Grumpy Cat The New Self-Help Guru? at Boomer Muse
  • A fun, exclusive Q & A with the original celebrity cat, Morris.

When I got home from snuggling with Grumpy Cat, Merlin could smell her and not amused. She received a lifetime achievement award and Merlin feels at age 19, that he deserves one too!
