Sneaky Interviews Sammie from Sammie’s Tail: My Story of Rescue by Stasie Fishman

Meow, there, Mr. Cat. What is your name and your author’s name?

My name is Sammie, my author’s name is Stasie Fishman.

Mice to meet you. What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre.

Sammie’s Tail,  my story as a cat and how I was alone outside and was rescued and found a furrever home.
That sounds like a pawsome story.
Are you in a series? If so, please give information about it.

 Not yet, but my sister’s book will come out soon.

Purrfect.

Are you based on a real cat such as your author’s? If so, please give further details.

 Yes I am a real cat.  I am a pure bred cat called a Bombay.  We are black.  I have a few disabilities with partial vision loss in one eye.  This is my true story of how I found a furrevver home.

You’ll have to excuse me, but I’m used to interviewing cat characters like myself, but this is quite a pleasure to interview a real cat and one with such an interesting story. My author has a black cat, too, but he’s not a Bombay. He’s just a run-of-the-mill shorthair, but he’s a handsome boy named Harry and a rescue, too.

Can you share an excerpt from one of your books that features you in an important scene? If so, please include it.

 The most important thing is to hear my story from my point of view and how I felt.  It is great to let children and adults know what we go through as homeless cats and how we all want a family and to love and be loved.  We hope to inspire kindness and compassion to all people so when you see any cats outside you won’t shoo them away but be considerate that they are only there by no fault of their own.

Well meowed.

What do you like most about your role in your authors’ books?

 That I can help people learn about kindness to animals and to the cats when they see them outside that they are without a home.

A worth cause indeed.

Are you a talking cat in your books or just a silent one like I am who just meows occasionally?

 You hear about my story as I have witten it.  I do not meow a lot or make a lot of noise as I am kind of shy.

I’m sure your voice rings loud and clear.

What advice would you give other cat characters?

Well, my story is true.  Just that Sammie’s Tail – Tolerance for Animals Inspire Love.  We want all animals and cats to find their furrever homes and let all people know to be kind to us.  We are only outside alone from no fault of our own.

What a great goal.
Do you have any new books coming out? Please give dates and details.

yes, my sister’s story will be out in the fall, Bettinna’s Tail, Her story of rescue.   

I’ll keep an eye out for it. Mabye Bettinna would like an interview at that time.

Are you and/or your author on social media? If so, please list your links.

Yes,  all links on my website at:  https://sammiestail.com/
on twitter, Instagram, Facebook, You tube etc.
Thank you. Best whiskers to you and your author on your inspiring book and future cat rescue stories.

Feature Friday Film: Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day Logo designed by Deb Barnes

Today, August 28, is a very special day. Deb Barnes, Debbie’s friend and the president of the Cat Writers’ Association, created it to honor her Ragdoll cat, Mr. Jazz, after he crossed the bridge and for others to honor their beloved pets who are no longer with them.

Here’s an article and a video that explains what this day is all about. I’ve also included some photos of Debbie’s cats, Oliver and Floppy, who are on the bridge and two of Debbie’s books, The Path to Rainbow Bridge and Cloudy Rainbow, that deal with the loss of beloved pets.

Sneaky’s Interview with Rum Tum Tugger from Casting Call for a Corpse: An Alvarez Family Murder by Heather Haven

Oh, goodie. Another cat guest. What’s your name, Kitty and who is your author?

My name is Rum Tum Tugger (yes, from the E.E. Cummings book, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats). My dear old great, great, great, great grandmother twice removed helped Mr. Cummings write that book, you know. Pinky swear. Many’s the night I sat with Dad over a bite or two of catnip when I was just a kitten and he would tell me all about her. Well, I had a bowl of warm milk, being a kit and all. Dad had the catnip. He would say to me, he would say, “Tugger, my boy, be proud. You come from a long line of nobility, cat-wise. Granny Grizabella was a legend in her time and a mighty fine singer, too. She was the inspiration for Mr. Cummings book. He never went anywhere without her tagging along.” So taking Dad at his word, I am proud. What was the rest of the question? Oh, the author. Heather Haven.

What a wonderful story. I know my author enjoyed the Broadway musical based on that book.

What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre.

So far, I’m in seven books labeled fun detective cozies: Murder is a Family Business, A Wedding to Die For, Death Runs in the Family, DEAD…If Only, The CEO Came DOA, The Culinary Art of Murder, and Casting Call for a Corpse. I don’t like to brag, but I am the pivotal character.

Concats to you. I’ve been in the 4 books of my Cobble Cove cozy mystery series and am excited that a fifth one will be out soon. I like to consider myself a pivotal character, too. The humans might take some exception to that, but we cat characters know better.

Please tell me about your series.

We’re called the Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries. And the first thing I want to do is welcome everyone to the Family with a rousing catlike cheer! And a purr, purr. Moving on, these often humorous mysteries, take place in the California of today, namely Silicon Valley, but sometimes we travel around a bit. Everything revolves around my people-mom, Lee Alvarez, a combination of Sue Graftonʼs Kinsey Millhone and Janet Evanovitchʼs Stephanie Plum. Completing the Alvarez Family is Leeʼs Never-Had-A-Bad-Hair-Day aristocratic mother, Lila; computer genius brother, Richard; gourmet chef and beloved Uncle ‘Tio’, Lee’s new hubby, Gurn, a former Navy SEAL, and of course, me, her handsome and energetic orange and white cat. You know my name.

Anyway, when the Alvarez clan is not solving murders, they run Discretionary Inquiries, a successful detective agency that normally deals with intellectual property and computer software thievery. With a recovery/prosecution rate of over ninety-four percent, Lee thinks We Are Smokin’ should be their motto. But blueblood and CEO, Lila Hamilton Alvarez, would never put that on a business card. These whodunits have a crackerjack mystery while exploring familial relationships — the good, the bad, and the amusing.

Wow! Your series sounds pawsome. My author took a trip to California last February and visited that area. She enjoyed it very much, but our series takes place in a small, upstate New York town called Cobble Cove.

Are you based on a real cat such as your author’s? If so, please give further details.

Yes, I am. Heather says I am the special cat she can never forget or let go of, even though the real Tugger crossed over the Rainbow Bridge ten years ago. So here I am, the star practically almost, of the series.  It was her way of making sure I lived on forever and ever. And so I do. She says she is happy when she’s writing the series because I am there with her. Sometimes, she says, she can almost reach out and stroke my fur, which if I must say so myself, is lustrous and smells like baby powder. Not that I use any baby powder because I am a big boy, but Heather says that’s how she remembers the scent. I am always young, healthy, and a scamp. The power of love.

We have something in common, Tug. I was based on my author’s Siamese cat, Oliver, who crossed the bridge 3 years ago this November.

Can you share an excerpt from one of your books that features you in an important scene? If so, please include it.

My pleasure. Here’s an except for the second book of the series, A Wedding to Die For:

Several hours later, I was roused by Tugger growling softly in my ear. I had never heard him make this sound before and was at first confused by it. Even though it was dark, I felt him rise, standing taut, his growling intensifying. Then I heard a noise in the kitchen. Before I could move, Tugger leapt off the bed and ran toward the sound. I didn’t turn on the light, feeling it was better to stay in obscurity, but that decision slowed me down.

I felt my way along the wall listening to a growing commotion in the kitchen. Within seconds, there were sounds of shuffling, and Tugger’s ever increasing growling turned into a loud howl. Then came a man’s exclamation and cry of pain.

That’s when I began to run and fell over the coffee table. I let out a scream and grappled for the five-iron I keep behind the sofa for just such an emergency. Rounding the corner to the kitchen, I heard the man shriek, things being knocked over and a sound of pain from Tugger.

Brandishing the golf club, I lost precious moments trying to find the light switch. When I turned it on, my vision was blurred by curling puffs of flour and the intensity of the light. A form pushed past me and out the open kitchen door before my eyes adjusted. When they did, all thoughts of pursuit were gone. On the kitchen counter, the canister of flour lay on its side, a still Tugger beside it.

I felt another scream escape me and dropped the five-iron, rushing to my pet. He was covered with flour but still breathing. He opened his eyes suddenly. Afraid to pick him up, I helped him struggle to wobbly feet, looking for signs of cuts or bruises. So intent was my concentration, I didn’t hear footsteps running up the stairs until there was a banging on the front door.

“Liana,” cried my mother from the other side of the door. “Liana! Are you all right?”

“Liana, por favor, answer us,” said Tío.

“Just a minute,” I yelled, looking at Tugger. He was steadier on his feet now, and I felt I could leave him for a moment or two. Racing to the front of the apartment, I bellowed that I was all right, while unlocking the door. They barged inside.

“I’m all right. I’m all right. It’s Tugger,” I said, with a catch in my voice. Turning, I ran back the kitchen. I found my cat sitting where I’d left him, his eyes half closed. He was breathing slowly and deeply. Mom and Tío followed on my heels and stopped right behind me.

“What happened?” demanded Mom, looking at the disarray in the kitchen.

“Someone broke in, and Tugger got in his way. I think he’s hurt.”

“Let me see,” Tío said with quiet authority. He stepped in front of me and began to examine the cat. Tugger leaned into Tío’s gentle hands.

“I should bring him to the vet emergency hospital,” I said, fighting back sobs. “There’s one in San Mateo. He could have internal injuries or something.”

“Shhh, Liana!” Tío ordered. Tugger shook himself free of flour, stood and turned around, as Tío continued his inspection. “I think he has had the air pushed out of him, mi sobrina. I think he will be all right in a moment,” Tío said.

“You mean the wind knocked out of him?” asked Mom, leaning on the counter and stroking Tugger.

As if to emphasize that fact, Tugger freed himself from their hands, jumped down and shook his body again. He went to the middle of the floor and began cleaning his paws. I grabbed a kitchen towel, followed and sat cross-legged beside him, gingerly wiping the remains of the flour off his back and legs. “He does seem better, doesn’t he, Tío?” I asked, my voice still trembling a little.

“Look at this,” Mom said. “I think this is blood on the refrigerator.” Glancing up, I scrunched my eyes and noticed several droplets of blood, too small to drip down the white enamel. “And there on the floor,” she said, pointing to another spot.

“Dios Mio!” I exclaimed, carefully taking Tugger in my lap and looking all over his body for a wound.

“I do not think that has come from el gatito,” Tío remarked. “Look, there is more on the cabinet door.” Tío pointed to the cabinet over the fridge. This was a streak of droplets, as if splattered from a small paintbrush.

I set Tugger on the floor and the three of us watched as he cleaned his paws but not his body, which still wore traces of flour. Picking him up again, I took one of his paws in my hand and pressed down to splay open his talons.

“Mom, Tío, look at this!” They came over to where I sat on the floor with the cat in my lap. “There’s blood on his claws, and I don’t think it’s his.” Ears back, Tugger freed his foot from my clutches, hopped down again, and strolled out of the room, annoyed by all the attention.

I stood up and went to the refrigerator, examining the top. I noticed the vase of flowers that had been upright when I went to bed was now on its side, water and flowers everywhere. “Tugger must have jumped up here on top of the refrigerator, just like you taught him, Tío, only when he pounced, his claws were extended.”

Wow, Meow! Thanks for sharing that great scene.

What do you like most about your role in your authors’ books?

I’m a good guy, but I get to be a cat. A smart cat. A smart, handsome cat. As I mentioned before, I am the pivotal character in the book. No one has actually said that, you understand, although I feel it in my bones. But don’t tell anyone. Sometimes the other characters get jealous.

I know exactly what you mean, Tugger, my pal.

Are you a talking cat in your books or just a silent one like I am who just meows occasionally?

I don’t talk in the books. I meow and do other cat-like things, in my own, hero way. I save my chit-chat for interviews like this.

Same here. I’m so glad Debbie created this blog for me. It’s great meeting all the pet characters out there including you.

What advice would you give other cat characters?

As Oscar Wilde says: Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.

Purrfect advice.

Do you have any new books coming out? Please give dates and details.

Casting Call for a Corpse, Book 7 of the Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries, came out August 1st, 2020. That’s close enough.

I will make sure my author checks that one out, and I hope my readers will, too.

A DETECTIVE AGENCY WITH HEART.
AND A WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!

Super sleuth, Lee Alvarez, finds a dead man wearing a tuxedo in a friend’s bathtub during a soiree for San Francisco’s VIPs. And not just any friend, but an internationally acclaimed actress who recently came to live in San Francisco. And not just any bathtub, but a bathtub residing inside one of Alamo Square’s famed Painted Ladies, recently bought by said actress.

The police believe it’s the actress friend who done the man in. After all, it’s her house and her tub. And another man died under suspicious circumstances around her recently. Both romantic encounters, doncha know. The actress must be guilty.

Or is she?

For ace detective Lee Alvarez, the timing couldn’t be worse. She is supposed to go off in celebration of her 6-month wedding anniversary with her hunky hubby. Paris is calling!

Or is it?

Her long-time friend, plus her mother – She Who Must Be Obeyed – thinks she should stick around and find out who the real killer is. So Lee, family, handsome hubby, and Tugger, the cat, are on the job. But Lee’s nose is itching. Which means not one of the suspects is telling the truth.

Or not all of it. Lee soon uncovers threatening letters, sullen playwrights, dead bodies, and a criminal web of jewel thieves, all treading the boards of her friend’s latest musical. This is showbiz?

Author Haven pulls out all the stops in a cozy fan’s delight about a charming, and unconventional Palo Alto detective family who get their man or woman, as the case may be. Book Seven follows its tradition of the Bay Area’s favorite PI, who rolls over with all four paw in the air when it comes to her darn near perfect mother. But with the help of her computer geek brother and handsome hubby, Lee works to solve the case in time to celebrate her own 6-month wedding anniversary.

About Heather Haven

Heather moved to the Bay Area and studied creative writing at Stanford University. Previously, several of her comedy acts and plays were performed in NYC. Her novels include the humorous Silicon Valley-based Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries, Manhattan-based Persephone Cole Vintage Mysteries, Love Can Be Murder Novellas, Snow Lake Romantic Suspense Series and standalone mystery noir, Murder under the Big Top, based upon her mother’s stint as a performer with Ringling Brothers’ Circus. There is also her anthology, Corliss and Other Award-Winning Stories. Her favorite protagonist is in Corliss, one of the featured short stories, but don’t tell anyone!

Sneaky Interviews Rah Rah from Three Treats Too Many, A Sarah Blair Cozy Mystery by Debra H. Goldstein

Hello, Kitty. What is your name and your author’s name?

My name is RahRah and my author’s name is Debra H. Goldstein.

Mice to meet you.

What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre.

Three Treats Too Many is the third book I’ve starred in (don’t tell Sarah Blair, she thinks she’s the protagonist and that it is her cozy series, but I’m why people come to read the books. I guess she hasn’t figured out yet that I’m on the cover of all three books and she isn’t. The other two books are Two Bites Too Many, which was just named as a 2020 Silver Falchion finalist, and One Taste Too Many, which was a Woman’s World Book of the Week in January 2019, when it was published.

Pawsome. Concats!

Please tell us about your series.

The series is referred to as the Sarah Blair series, but I’m the one on all the covers. Sarah, who I dearly love, is a woman who finds being in the kitchen more frightening than murder. She specializes in take-out bags of food that her twin sister, a chef, makes for her, preparing dishes using pre-made ingredients, and solving murders.

So far, there are three books in the series: One Taste Too Many, Two Bites Too Many, and Three Treats Too Many, but my author’s contract has been extended by Kensington for at least two more books. Four Cuts Too Many is scheduled to debut in June 2021.

Sounds purr-fect.  Debbie is working on the 5th book of our Cobble Cove cozy series.

Are you based on a real cat such as your author’s? If so, please give further details.

My author didn’t know much about cats, so Debra interviewed a friend who had the most beautiful Siamese cat.  The cat’s name, Suri, is mentioned in homage in One Taste Too Many, and the likeness on the cover is almost identical to Suri. Sadly, just before One Taste Too Many was published, the real Suri crossed over the rainbow bridge, but when her owner received a copy of the book, she felt like her cat had been immortalized. Her friend’s happiness made my author happy and pretty much has guaranteed me a prominent spot on every cover in the Sarah Blair series.

Such a heartwarming story. I love the fact that we are both Siamese, the best breed in my humble cat opinion. I was based on my author’s cat, Oliver, who is now on Rainbow Bridge, too.

Can you share an excerpt from one of your books that features you in an important scene? If so, please include it.

Back at the carriage house, even though Glenn had assured her RahRah should be okay, she needed to see for herself. In the kitchen, her cookbooks were untouched on the table and RahRah’s food bowl was empty, but RahRah wasn’t in his usual place stretched out on the linoleum. True, the sun wasn’t shining on RahRah’s claimed spot, but still, he rarely lay anywhere else. “RahRah!”

A soft meow from under the kitchen table caught Sarah’s ear. Relieved, Sarah braced herself with one hand on the edge of the table and bent to RahRah’s level. She reached out to stroke the stretching cat. He didn’t pull away. Instead, he shook his body and inched closer to her. When Sarah let herself drop completely to the floor, he leapt into her lap.

Using her as his new floor, RahRah proceeded to reach back and clean himself. Sarah didn’t care. She was only glad to see her precious cat in one piece. “I missed you. I’m sorry I left so suddenly, but Fluffy wasn’t feeling well.”

When RahRah stopped cleaning himself and raised his head as if peering around the room for Fluffy, Sarah couldn’t help wondering how much he really understood. She knew cats and dogs weren’t supposed to have the same intellect as humans, but there were times she really felt that assumption was flawed. This moment was just such an instance. Anyone, including Glenn Amos, would be hard pressed to sway Sarah’s belief that RahRah didn’t sense something was wrong with his beloved Fluffy.

Gingerly, Sarah put RahRah back on the floor. “I hate to leave you again, but I have to run to the store to get a few things–Okay, everything–to make tomorrow’s lunch.”

RahRah stared at her for a few seconds before he resumed cleaning himself.

With her knees creaking more than they did even a year earlier, Sarah stood by the side of the table. She sorted through the recipes she planned to serve tomorrow. On a pad, she wrote the ingredients she needed for each. If the recipe had a picture she couldn’t carry to the store with her, she took a photo of it with her phone. This way, she knew she’d buy the right squash or whatever the recipe called for. Not being a cook, the variety of items, like the different types of squash, overwhelmed her when she went shopping. Over time, she’d found that for the few times she cooked, the picture method kept her from having to make multiple trips to the store to correct her mistakes.

Astounded at how anyone could get so confused in a neighborhood supermarket, Emily thought Sarah’s system was a hoot. For Emily, recognition and understanding of food, even the most exotic, came naturally. Not for Sarah.

She glanced over to where RahRah lay on the floor. “Don’t look at me like that. Either come help me find pictures to take to the grocery store or keep cleaning yourself, but don’t you dare laugh. I’m doing the best I can.”

That excerpt is as great as catnip. Thanks for sharing it, RahRah.

What do you like most about your role in your authors’ books?

I like that I’m treated as a real cat. My attitudes, behaviors, likes, and dislikes are all made apparent, but they are done in the context of reality. Plus, I’m treated with respect. Too often in cozy novels, the cat is a throwaway, but I’m a real character.

I feel the same way. That’s why I purr-suaded Debbie to start showing my thoughts and feelings to readers.

Are you a talking cat in your books or just a silent one like I am who just meows occasionally?

I am a silent cat, but I make my feelings known by the way I carry myself, rub against or ignore people, and my general demeanor. As for my voice, I purr and meow as I would in real life (but then again, who is to say that my life isn’t real?).

Very good point. I ask myself that all the time.

What advice would you give other cat characters?

Hope that your authors let you be yourself. You don’t want to be a cartoon.

You put your paw right on it.

Do you have any new books coming out? Please give dates and details.

My newest book, which you have a picture of here, is Three Treats Too Many. It debuts in print, e-book, and audio on August 25, 2020.

That’s today. Meow!

Anything else you want our readers to know, Rah Rah?

You can get to know me better by getting a copy of Three Treats to Many at your local indie bookstore or shopping online at sites including:

Amazon – https://www.amazon.com/Three-Treats-Sarah-Blair-Mystery/dp/1496719492

When a romantic rival opens a competing restaurant in small-town Wheaton, Alabama, Sarah Blair discovers murder is the specialty of the house . . .

For someone whose greatest culinary skill is ordering takeout, Sarah never expected to be co-owner of a restaurant. Even her Siamese cat, RahRah, seems to be looking at her differently. But while Sarah and her twin sister, Chef Emily, are tangled up in red tape waiting for the building inspector to get around to them, an attention-stealing new establishment—run by none other than Sarah’s late ex-husband’s mistress, Jane—is having its grand opening across the street.

Jane’s new sous chef, Riley Miller, is the talk of Wheaton with her delicious vegan specialties. When Riley is found dead outside the restaurant with Sarah’s friend, Jacob, kneeling over her, the former line cook—whose infatuation with Riley was no secret—becomes the prime suspect. Now Sarah must turn up the heat on the real culprit, who has no reservations about committing cold-blooded murder . . .

Includes quick and easy recipes!
