The May 2016 issue of Consumer Reports looks at pet insurance to see if it’s worth it for the money. The upshot? If you have a pet with a costly condition, pet insurance may save you more than you spend on the cost of coverage.
Don’t just get where you’re going. Get there care of a cool cat. When you arrive at your destination with a lot of cool cat fur all over you it will be all the proof you need to show you are on the bleeding edge of techno-convenience. Grouber is Lyft with a catitude.
Below are just a few of the amazing claims they make about their incredible fleet of feline drivers:
Our drivers are spayed, neutered and have no reason to curl up in your lap and make it awkward. Trust us, these cats are cool. And every Grouber experience should be a paws-itive one.
Meet cat superstar Johnny, a charismatic Thai kitty on the verge of international stardom. Johnny, who played himself last year in what we assume was a hilarious and heartwarming film, claims to be the first cat with a bank account. He clearly needs good cash-flow with his jet-set lifestyle and spendy ways.
Johnny was recently caught skinny-dipping naked on a beach vacation. Doesn’t he know those beaches are positively infested with paparazzi just waiting to get priceless pics like this? The whole thing stinks of a publicity stunt carefully executed to get Johnny more international attention. Well, it worked, because who can take their eyes off the sleek stylish short-hair with the million dollar gaze?
So far Thailand has kept this fabulous feline talent to itself, but they can’t hold a cat like Johnny to themselves for long. We may know next to nothing about him, but it only takes a short glance to see that this is one hot, ambitious, talented house cat. By the way, we have the
Coconuts Bangkok site to thank for the little we do know about Johnny super-cat.
So for now, superstar cat Johnny remains an enigma, a mysterious stranger to the West. If anyone can share any information about who he is, who he sleeps with, his next project, etc., we’re ready to pay very handsomely in catnip for these kinds of tasty details.
What can I say, Brody can levitate. You cannot detour him when he is determined.
So the cats won’t stop celebrating since Saturday when we published our first book, Time Management for Cats, at Smashwords.com! That’s right, I finally overcame Hank’s reluctance about the cover design and just went for it. After the hours of editing and formatting, the actual upload was easy.
There was a small hiccup with the cover being too small at first, but that seems to be behind us, almost. At the moment, our status into premium retailers like Amazon.com remains pending, but one can get the book right now for $2.99 at Smashwords.com.
It’s a small price to pay for all the fun you will have putting your cat to work the Time Management for Cats way — and celebrating your amazing success! Click here to learn more.

Emotions are running high as the Self Help for Cats staff work night and day applying the final finishing touches on our first book, Time Management for Cats.
The entire Self Help for Cat organization is happy to nearly have this one done. As you can see, the editor is getting grumpy!
Dog parks, schmog parks. What about the cat parks, people? In feline-forward Oakland, CA (home base for the entire Self Help for Cats empire), cat-activists are asking just that. This dog-happy hamlet offers its city-bound canines no less than FIVE DOG PARKS in which to frisk about and catch frisbees. Meanwhile, the local cat population suffers without so much as a sidewalk strip dedicated to their pure, dog-free enjoyment.
This and other inequalities were recently brought to Oakland city leaders’ attention by Chairman Meow, spokes-human of a group that calls itself Ay Gato!, “the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Cat Army’s nonviolence front group.” In a statement apparently read to city council, Chairman Meow said the group envisions, “a cat play area with large sandboxes, bird and rodent habitat, trees for climbing,” etc.
In another statement, these cat visionaries assert: “Building a cat park at Lake Merritt would provide cat owners with a lovely opportunity to teach our cats to swim in the lake and bike the area. Dogs aren’t even litter trained!”
The group has an open Facebook page, so you too could become a member at:
Brody was wandering the house meowling, belting out the lonely tones of his kitty blues. Nothing, it seemed, could satisfy the crater of existential cat angst that had opened in his feline soul. His distorted wailing was grating at the last small flecks of sanity still clinging to the interior of his sapiens’ skulls, like remnants of last week’s lasagna makings.
Careening like a mini-tanker on steroids, he moved through the bays and coves of each room in the house, searching the shores for elusive satisfaction. His warbling tones echoed off the walls and wood and into his people’s ear canals, their brains, and straight to their “can’t stand it anymore” buttons, deep in the folds of grey matter.
Finally, the grey matter spat up a solution.
“Maybe it’s time to break out Brody’s Kitty Sweater!”
I can’t say Brody likes wearing his Kitty Sweater, not like he should. It’s perfect for him, adorable and very stylish, a neat knit pattern in lovely shades of gold and teal. The best part is the look on his face when you slip it on him. He looks just like a kitty question mark. What is this?
I think the comfort the sweater provides is not so much as a source of warmth as it is a source of challenge. The challenge of how to wiggle out of it. At any rate, it works as good as anything to quiet his case of the kitty wintertime blues.
Yes, it’s definitely Kitty Sweater weather. And if the sweater doesn’t do the job, maybe the hot little sequined number below would do the trick.
