After losing two cats in a row and finding ourselves cat-less, my husband and I decided it might be time for another cat. I wasn't sure I wanted to try again since it hurts to lose a kitty friend. One of the young boys at our church said his cat might have kittens, and if so, he'd give us one. I thought it would be nice to have more time to think things over and "heal" while we waited for the kittens to be born and weaned. Fate, however didn't wait. a week later the boy and his brother stopped by with a suprise. A drop-off cat had been wandering around for weeks begging for food, and their teacher who was tired of distracted students decided to take it to the animal shelter. The boys caught it instead and brought it to me. I wasn't prepared for a cat yet, but how could I say no? Ginger has been with us since then and she has been growing healthier and more outgoing each day! We love our Ginger Cat!
Ginger and Wolfy are best friends. Sometimes Wolfy gets a little rough with her, but Ginger Cat is a tough kitty and she gets him right back! Don't mess with the Ginger Cat

I haven't published a new exercise yet because I have been so distraced by all the goings on here. It has been a little bit of an emotional time for me. My little baby boy, Napoleon has found his forever home and will be leaving. I am a little sad, but I am also confident that he will be going to a good home where he will be loved and cherished. I need to go spend some time with him. Perhaps tomorrow I will feel up to exercising again. I'll need to loose this extra weight I've put on! I eat when I'm nervous.
Take care everyone
Loves and purrs, Ginger Cat

WEll friends, and spycats, I'm here again. I probably kept some of you waiting since I talked about posting the next exercise and then never did and now it's been days, but here's the story...
My human found a sketch-scratch that I had made while designing the mission impawsible group logo. she stared at it a long time and she didn't look very happy. Even though I had scratched all over it to cover it up, I was afraid that maybe she could read the words "Spy cats". I thought she was on to me and I knew I couldn't put the other cats and the mission at risk, so I played innocent. I stayed away from the computer for a while until I was sure it was safe. Yesterday, I heard her say, "I think Ginger needs her claws trimmed again. I'm noticing she's scratching a lot." that's when it all became clear to me...I was scared for no reason. She wasn't on to me at all! Perhaps I shouldn't have used the sofa to do my sketch-scratching.
Now getting down to business...I will teach you some essential stretches:
Roll & Stretch: This is a great one to do around your humans because they will think you are just being lazy and will have no clue that you are actually working your abdominal and back muscles while increasing flexability. Start by lying on your side. Focus on the center of your body. Inhale smoothly and slowly stretch your whole body out from the center all the way out to your toes. Reach! Relax as you exhale. For a more advanced version, begin this exercise with the Flop Drop.
Ground Hog Stretch: this will tone your butt and back legs and is wonderful for balance. For this one begin in the normal sitting position. Take a deep, steady breath in and push off the ground with your front feet so that you are balanced on your back feet with your front paws relaxed and hanging down by your tummy. Lengthen your back and keep it straight. Hold for 1-2 seconds, then exhale while slowly lowering your front feet and settling once again into the sitting position. As you get more advanced, you can hold it for longer, just remember not to hold your breath in between if holding the stretch for more than 2 seconds!
Halloween Back-Arch: Every cat knows how to do this one, but did you know that it is great for working your abdominal muscles, stetching your back and tail? This can be disguised as stretching after a nap, or when scared by something real or imaginary. You choose your style. If you choose the scared version of this stretch, don't foget to make your hair stand up and hissing also makes it more believable.
Wooo, I'm tired now, lets all go eat some tasty treats and then take a nap! If you get these ones down well enough, I'll start teaching you some of the finer arts like Cat-Poo!
Happy pouncing, Lotus (AKA Ginger Cat)

Hello again Catsters, and welcome to the next installment of the Lotus training exercises. This next drill is very important and should be practiced regularly. This is one of my very favorite exercises! It looks simple, but that is part of the cover! The humans will never guess that you are a spy training for an undercover mission.
Even the most highly trained spycat will make a mistake, or get thrown off balance. When this happens a fall can occur. Falls can be very dangerous and although people say that cats always land on their feet, it’s not true. My little brother, Wolfy for example falls on his butt or back almost every time he jumps to try and get something. Even I occasionally fall and don’t land on my feet, but sometimes it’s safer NOT to land on your feet.
This exercise is called the Flop Drop. You don’t need anything to do it. Just take a nice deep breath in and then suddenly, and without any warning, flop onto the ground. Exhale as you fall. It is wise to let your whole body relax during the moment before it makes contact with the floor to avoid injury, but don’t let it stay that way. Remember to focus your inner energy so that you appear calm and still, but really are ready for action. You may want to practice this on a couch or bed until you get the hang of it.
This exercise is also a good evasive and an offensive maneuver. Try it for example just as someone makes a leap for your head, or just before a human takes a step, flop in front of them and see what happens. The possibilities are endless!
Have fun Flopping, Ginger Cat
