Tara Talk guest post: A boy and his Wookiee

by Tara

Cats, like people, can always surprise you.

After almost three years with my first Tabby’s Place alumnae Peggy and Dottie, they still reveal little quirks of personality, or develop new habits, or decide that they now hate the food they always gobbled down with glee. They’re mercurial creatures who never go stagnant.

Tara Talk guest post: THE ONE

by Angela

Sometimes there is news so momentous…happenings so humongous…events so earth-shaking…

…only a summer blockbuster can properly tell the tale.

Today’s post concerns a colossus of the cat, about to begin the biggest bonanza of his life. Accordingly, we have Spielberg, Cameron and Bigelow on the phone (plus Tim Burton, just in case we wanna get weird).

But until the cameras start rolling, Tara‘s terrific talk will tell the tale. Buckle up, kittens, it’s the biggest brand of breaking news… Continue reading » » »
