Today was World Cat Day & I am required to pay homage to my adorable and mischievous crew of felines.

Mario   ~   Luigi  ~  Tigger

What can I say? I fed them, petted them, and didn’t send them out to work in the cold, hard world… actually they are indoor cats and seem content with that.

So what I will do is pay tribute to them by building on their 15 + 15 + 15 minutes of fame.

Pussycat Tales (an amusing look at a lifetime with cats)

          We have always had cats. Just a few months after our marriage nearly 40 years ago, Mark’s friend found a stray kitten on the road. The kitten’s mom had been struck by a car; the kitten was about 3-weeks old, too young to be without its mama. The friend wanted to keep the tiny orange tabby kitten but his wife was deathly allergic so instead he looked for a good home. That’s when he spoke to Mark and that is when Pumpkin joined our family.

(Laugh with me as I relate stories of
pussycats past and present)

My  most recent release (available for pre-sale orders until 9/15) is Karma Visited and is my first work that prominently features a cat.

Tigger, aided by his brothers Mario and Luigi, recently interviewed the hero’s cat, Mauszer. You can read the interview here in Ssh, Kitty Power Rules!

Finally Tigger was interviewed by Mayra Calvani in Jan. 2010 in An Interview With Tigger, proud owner of Chelle Cordero

There is another pussycat who is important to me, his name is Butters and he is my “grand-kitty”.  Butters lives with my daughter and her dog and starred in a YouTube video

Happy World Cat Day & lots of petting to all.
Hope you’ve had a purr-fect day.
