Catnip Corner

My main passions in life are cats and writing and this new section combines both quite nicely. This blog is the chatty bits which are usually found at the beginning of the Mewsletter and the Scratching Post but in a bid to make both of them more user friendly, I am cutting the chatter and putting it into a blog. I hope that you'll take time out to read them and more importantly, enjoy them! I always welcome feedback so please write to me using the contact us box.

Thank you for reading.

paws for thought

Paws For Thought

a place where you can stop off at any time of the day to rest a while; put your feet up; have a drink and relax – perhaps with your favourite feline on your lap or nearby.

Paws for Thought is a collection of quotations written by people from all walks of life on their passion for cats. I do hope you’ll enjoy them enough that you’ll want to come by often to just sit and find peace with your feline companion while you read.

A Message from Pauline

Cats are brave, aren't they?

Gibbs on the new deckingHave you ever stopped and wondered about how brave cats are? No, me neither, until this afternoon.  I was giving Gibbs some dinner and I suddenly saw his life through his eyes.  I don’t know where he came from – and that goes for Casey, as well.  Their backgrounds are a complete mystery to me, but what I am in awe of is the fact that whatever happened in their past life – before TDM (The Daily Mews) they just up and left and faced the world not knowing where they’d end up, or what would happen to them.

Don’t you find that astonishing? How many of us humans would remove ourselves from a situation not of our liking, just up sticks and leave? Not knowing where we’ll end up, or what will happen to us? How many of us stay in abusive relationships because the fear of the unknown is worse than what we’re used to? Or how many of us have stayed in jobs that made us unhappy because the job market is so fragile and fraught with anxiety? 

We always attribute ‘aloof’ and ‘independent’ to cats, but I think we should add bravery too.  It must be hard to just go where you’ve never been before and hope that the garden where you’ll pitch up in, you’ll be looked upon with kindness.  And if they play their cards right, the lady – or the man – of the house, may smile upon them and adopt them. 

I think it takes enormous courage to move out of an unfavourable situation into the wilderness of uncertainty and blag your way into a new home.

Today I saw Casey and Gibbs through new eyes and I’m in awe of their bravery.

A Morning Kiss

A morning kiss, a discreet touch of his nose landing somewhere on the middle of my face.
Because his long white whiskers tickled, I began every day laughing.
