• Mewsers' Mewsings

    Mewsers’ Mewsings is an opinion page for cats that want to get something off their chest.

    If your cat has decided views about the way it perceives it is being treated, the food it is expected to eat, the position of the litter tray, the television programmes it is expected to watch while sitting on your lap, the choice of music that blares out while it is trying to sleep – then this is the place for your cat to air its opinion. 

    Have your cat write to the ‘contact us’ address on the Home Page and his or her views will be posted on these pages. But please, absolutely no bad language! If your cat likes publicity, then photos will be accepted as long as they are not too large.

    Please be aware that the views expressed on these pages do not necessarily reflect the views and the opinion of the editor of the website!

        Christmas is a special time for all of us, and none more so than with the wonderful four-legged companions that share our homes, our hearts and our lives.

        If they could write a letter to Santa Paws, I think this is what they would say.

    • Squirt's Scribblings

       Let me introduce you to Squirt, our newest correspondent all the way from Scotland. Squirt is a Somali Variant and he has written a book (which you'll find in the Book Review section - called Reservoir Cats) Squirt says that it might help you, when reading his book and his column, to imagine him speaking in a particular 'voice'. He feels Sir Sean Connery's voice is just right for this!

      I know you'll love Squirt's Scribblings; they're funny, they're adventurous, they're irreverent and hugely entertaining.

      Enjoy!!!

      • Ollie's Diaries

        Ollie playing hide and seekWhen Ollie first came to the Daily Mews Mansion, he was so excited to be living in a house with 6 other cats, that he wanted to make his mark somehow - and he didn't mean spraying up the furniture - not that kind of mark!

        He decided he wanted to write an account of his new life so that kittens all around the world would know just how lucky he was to have found a new forever home, and he wanted to impart the knowledge that Garfield, Charlie, Ricky, Sam, Billy and Timmy shared so generously with him.

        On these pages, you'll enjoy Ollie's view of his world ...

    • Casey's Chats

      Casey has been writing odd bits and pieces when the mood takes him and he has something to say that he feels is worthwhile for a some time now.  However, just recently he casually left his list for Santa Paws on the table and I happened to take a glance.  There was one item underlined in red six times so I'm guessing he really wants this particular item.  It's a lap top because he wants to let his inner 'mews' have freedom of expression - whatever that might mean.   

      Here then, at long last and by popular request, is Casey doing what he does best - chatting about this and that and the price of fish.

      Enjoy!

    • Lord Reginald's Ruminations

      Lord Reginald admiring himself in the mirror

      Recently retired from life as a secret agent, I am now in a Witness Protection Programme where I’ve got a brand-new identity, name, and residence.  My pedigree stretches back to Puss in Boots and beyond, and my lineage carries on through the many kittens I’ve sired in my line of duty.  Of course, a gentlecat, such as I am, doesn’t kiss and tell about his many liaisons so don’t expect any sordid gutter press tabloid headlines in this column.  

      I was very busy in my previous life so it’s rather nice to just sit back and let the world pass by without having to constantly look at the calendar to see all the appointments mounting up that I had to fulfil.  

      I live with a Maid with an impeccable service record. There are two other felines in residence: a little whippersnapper called Gabion Tzchugge who seems to idolise me and a rather porky female called Chav Cat.

  • Catfucius he says ....

    We've all heard of the great Chinese philospher, Confucius, who lived 551 - 479 BC.  Well, the Daily Mews is, indeed, blessed to have its own Somalian philosopher, Squirt, aka, Catfucius, who lives in the wilds of Scotland.  Dispensing wisdom with his own inimitable brand of humour, this new section will delight the reader with Squirt's wise teachings and parodies of sayings suitable for every occasion.

  • Fighting the Flab the Feline Way

    If there is less of your human’s lap than there used to be then maybe you need to help them shape up.  After all, their lap is your resting place and if that space is diminishing, then something needs to be done!  This is the section where cats unite across the world to reclaim what is rightfully theirs – the snooze spot which doesn’t move (much) because the human sits down a lot (which is probably why there is less lap space than there should be).

    Casey and Gibbs have embarked on a flab fighting mission to rid their human of the additional wobbly stuff that has accumulated over the years and this year, they mean business.  The wobble has to go.  Are you in? Will you join them as they try to motivate felines all over the world to get their staff, human food bowl attendants, call them what you will – to shape up or ship out?   

    Write to Casey@thedailymews.com because he wants to hear from you with your ingenious ways of getting that stubborn human to move from the sofa to become the svelte lean machine they were always meant to be.  In the process, felines that are carrying a little extra ‘furry’ bits around their middles will be encouraged to ditch the flab too.

    • Casey and Gibbs

      Casey and Gibbs discussing the lack of a lap situationCasey and Gibbs believe that every human deserves a second chance.  They realise that all humans are a sub-species requiring delicate handling and understanding by their feline companions.  They put their heads together after Christmas when they saw their human Mum standing dejectedly on the bathroom scales muttering that the numbers were going in the wrong direction.

      Being the caring felines that they are, (and wanting more lap space to snooze the evenings away) they decided to do something positive about this sorry state of affairs.  The following articles are not meant for the squeamish.  Humans do cry especially when their feline superiors withdraw their chocolate rations and lock up the biscuits.

      Enjoy!

    • Gabion Tzchugge and Maid

      Gabion Tzchugge or Captain Buggernuts Gabion, or Gabes, for short, has his work cut out if he is to fulfil the late wishes of his paramour, Dumpty Roo.  Their Maid, a porky being of indeterminate proportions, is in dire need of a make-over in order to be holiday ready for a trip to the Arctic in the autumn.

      This journey began with Dumpty's first - and last - attempt at getting her human to unfatten and fitten up.  A journey that Gabes will continue to make Dumpty proud of him, and to show that her work and her efforts were not in vain.

    • Phoebe's Weight Loss Tips

      PhoebeIt's not easy keeping oneself in the prime of health and fitness.  We cats take our health very seriously and we don't like it when our humans get slovenly with their fitness regimes.  My human needs a complete overhaul and I've taken it upon myself - at no extra cost - to help whip her into shape.  One of my housemates - Ka-Two - needs to lose a few pounds and I'll sort her out as well.

      So, my life will be a bit busier than usual - that's OK.  That's what we cats are here for - to care for you humans and to see that you make the grade.  

      Join me as I chronicle the ups and downs of trying to create a near-perfect human! 

      Actually, my human has her own column - 15 cats and meowing - so she's pretty darn near perfect anyway taking care of all of us which is why I want to take care of her.

    • Bumble and Jem

      BumbleBumble is a cat on a mission.  His Dad, the author, Jem Vanston, has had the temerity to call him 'plumpity' when it is quite clear to all concerned, that he's just extremely fluffy.  His Dad has his own issues with being overly fluffy, too.  But Bumble has a cunning plan.  Never cross a cat or insult one because they never forget - ever!  

      Read how Bumble plans to get his own back on his Dad - and the lengths he'll go to achieve the ultimate goal: a less plumpity Dad and maybe - grudgingly - a slightly less fluffy middle himself!
