Your Cat Photos Needed for Purrs of Wisdom: Enlightenment, Feline Style

purrs-of-wisdom-photos

Yes, I need more of your cat photos! First of all, thank you to all of you who have submitted photos of your torties for Tortitude: The Little Book of Cats With a Big Attitude. I received close to a thousand photos, and I loved “meeting” all of your torties. It was really hard to reduce the number of photos to only about 75 – if I could, I would use all of them! My publisher will have final say as to which of the photos will be used in the book, which will publish in February of 2016.

Now it’s time for a second round of photo submissions!Continue Reading

How many photos and videos of your cats do you have on your computer, tablet and phone? I have several thousand photos of Allegra and Ruby on my computer, and I don’t ever want to lose those photos, and the memories that are attached to them.

I use multiple back up modalities: I back up to an external hard drive, to a thumb drive, and to cloud (online) storage.Continue Reading

Review: Metal Cats

Metal_Cats

Not too many people know that I like heavy metal music. Actually, I like pretty much every genre of rock, from classic to alternative to yes, heavy metal. But rock music and cats don’t always go together, especially since most cats don’t like loud noises (I make sure I only blast my music at top volume when I’m in my car, away from Allegra and Ruby’s sensitive ears.)  I definitely never thought I’d ever see a book that combines two of my loves: cats, and heavy metal music.

The press release for this book came with an appropriate warning: “Some material in these books may be too cute for human consumption. Reader discretion is advised.” And the press release didn’t lie: this little book redefines cute.Continue Reading
