January 1st 2002


Napping, carboard boxes, watching the birds through the window, playing with the kitchen rug, lying in the sunnier spot of the house, chatting.

Waking up her humans at seven a.m. even on sundays, throwing things on the floor just to get attention, meowing excessively when she wants something she can't have.

Favorite Toy:
Fluffy pompons, feathers, catnip mice, paperballs.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Mom and dad's big bed, left arm of the couch, cardboard scratcher, office rug, mom's lap.

Favorite Food:
Anything with fish and seafood. Hates any other kind of meat.

Be unbearably cute.


Arrival Story:
She was abandonned at a pet shop entrance. She was so tiny and hungry and she had such a sad look I simply couldn't leave her. I took her home not knowing yet that there was the best furry friend I could possibly wish for.

She was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and she lived there until october 2005. Since then we moved to San Francisco and now she has squirrels to watch trough the living room window!

Waking up lessons

Humans have so much to learn from cats! But today I would like to focus in one very important aspect: waking up. We know they don't have as much sleep as they should. Plus they like to stay awake until late into the night. But have you ever seen a human waking up? They simply jump out of the bed right after the alarm goes off. And then, in a very bad mood, they lock themselves in the bathroom. It's just wrong. And it's our mission to teach the poor creatures how to begin the day feeling brand new.

Tell your human that all he/she needs is to follow these steps:

Step 1: Open just one eye to see if everything is fine around you.
Step 2: Then open the other eye.
Step 3: Greet the sun.
Step 4: Yawn with your mouth opened as far as you can.
Step 5: Take a deep breath.
Step 6: Lick your belly and in between your fingers.
Step 7: If you have a friend beside you, lick him/her too.
Step 8: Stretch every little muscle in your body.
Step 9: Slowly get off the bed.

As you see, waking up is a ritual for a cat, and humans should not take this moment for granted. Why the hurry anyway, right?

Have you all a very good morning!

When humans created the Internet they couldn’t have guessed even for a moment that it would be so popular among cats. We are taking over the world wide web! And that’s because we have something humans don’t have: universal language.

It doesn’t matter if one cat is from Senegal and the other is from Indonesia. They both like to play with a paper ball and they both would love to have some fresh tuna. We share the same concerns, the same needs, the same feelings. We don’t care about race, religion, economic status and other minor details humans keep fussing about.

There are no barriers in our universe. And I think this is such a wonderful thing!

Many cats I’ve known through the Internet are now my dear friends, even though we haven’t got the opportunity to meet without the help of a computer. Like Carney, a cat from China who was bought by his mom at a local market where he was being sold as food; or Smoggy, a sweet 17 years-old australian cat that only has one eye; or Shun and Bo, brother and sister that were rescued by a very good soul in Brazil. My nine lives wouldn’t be complete without knowing them and their stories.

So, if you like to be my friend, come and talk to me wherever you’re from. There’s no doubt we will understand each other very well.


My mom is a photoholic

When I was rescued the first thing mom did was feed me. The second thing? She took a picture of me.

Since then I'm her favorite model in the whole world. Everywhere I look there is a camera pointing at my face. I feel like a celebrity being chased by papparazzi. Yes, I'm as beautiful as Angelina Jolie, but give me a break!

Well, at least I have a real nice fotolog (you can see me on Flickr) and now my Catster page is full of nice images. I hope you enjoy it.

But I'm here to give some piece of advice: I know cats are gorgeously photogenic creatures, and humans can't help photographing them. That's fine. We like our faces to be kept for prosperity. We appreciate the idea of the next generation seeing how cute we were. But there are some golden rules. A cat never, EVER, should have its picture taken if...

1) He/she is using the litter box - let us poop in peace.
2) He/she is licking his/her butt - it's our own private moment, so please, respect.
3) He/she is dressed up in stupid costumes- too embarrassing for words.
4) He/she is soaking wet after an awful bath - no need to explain, right?

Oh, and don't forget to ask your humans to turn the flash off. After all,we don't like to be blinded, do we? And our pretty eyes won't look good in devilish red.

Even my mom knows that rules.
