Purrs! Hermione here with the next installment of my Kitty Korner Column. Today, I’d like to wish all the pets out there a Happy National Pet Day! I’m very happy to have been adopted from Golden Paws Society into the De Louise household this past October with my brother Harry after Debbie and her daughter spotted us at the Shabby Tabby Cat Cafe and decided to give us a home. That was the luckiest day of our lives.
We are nearly nine months old now and are settled into this wonderful place. I’ve become very comfortable here as you can see from the following photos. Whether on my grandma’s keyboard, the cat tree in her back room where she keeps our litterbox, or the living room couch, I can always find a comfy spot to snooze.
When I first came here, I was not particularly welcomed by Stripey, the De Louise’s 10-year-old cat, but he’s grown accustomed to me and Harry. We still have occasional playfights, but we get along for the most part. We even eat and sleep together now.
There are some great toys here, too. We have a toy box that we can jump inside and pick out our favorite play things, although some of the less safe toys are hidden away from us.
I really like being the granddaughter cat of an author. I especially like helping her write her mysteries by clearing her computer desk. I am a little upset when she shoos me off. I can’t understand why she’d rather look at that boring screen than at my lovely face, but I try not to take it purrsonally.
Speaking of my lovely face, I’m so proud that she posted a photo of me near one of her paintings and said that I was as pretty as a picture. She got some nice comments that people think I’m even prettier. What do you think?
I do require a certain amount of attention, and I miss Debbie when she spends time writing or at book fairs, but I’m proud of her. She’s even been on TV on Linda Maria Frank’s show, The Writer’s Dream and is scheduled for an upcoming appearance on Between the Covers. She has published six books and is releasing a new one in May. She is quite purrlific an author. Check out all her books she displayed at a table at Long Island’s Local Author Fair. You can purrchase them by clicking on the pawprint on this blog or from her Amazon author page.
Debbie made up for the time she spent away from me by using me as a model with her new mystery, Sea Scope.
Here’s a photo of me and Harry with Debbie.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate National Pet Day than writing about my happy life. I wish the same for all my fellow kitties and other pets out there.
Purrs until next time, Hermione.
