The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

One year ago, I brought home a little Siamese-tabby mix that was being called Lily. Her name quickly changed to Meimei, and I discovered that she was a month older than they guessed she was when she went into heat … Continue reading
Fluffy kitty posts are called for.
I think the internet doesn’t have enough cat pictures. Up first: Gracie, who needs to have more pictures taken, because I’m noticing her goofball brother has about three times the pictures in my folder as she does. Below: Tig, right … Continue reading
I like my new desk. It’s transparent. And apparently, I’m not the only one who likes it. The UPS is warm and cuddly to a cat, seemingly.
A few weeks ago, I started wondering if Gracie was coming down with something again. About a year and a half ago, I took her to the vet’s on the strength of the fact that she no longer mewed or … Continue reading
Tig and Gracie decided to pose for some photographs that could use captions. 1. This one proves that Tig 3.0, just like Tig 2, is a duuuuuuuude. 2. The view from my great room. Tig loves to look down on … Continue reading
There is far too much annoying or bad news lately. Instead, let’s talk about—cats. This morning, I was upstairs in my office, when I heard wheezing coming from downstairs. Tig 3.0 has asthma, which is mostly controlled by not giving … Continue reading
What’s under Meryl’s desk? Why, it’s Miss Gracie, sleeping belly-up. (And yes, she is in the way of my feet.) But wait—where’s Tig? On the bed, of course. Don’t bother me, man. I’m busy sleeping. It’s a tough life, being … Continue reading
Via Sarah. Pictures of Tig and Gracie to come later. I have another former student leading services today.
Since I forgot to post these yesterday, here they are today. Tig wanted to get some exercise, so he was checking out whether or not he should use the Gazelle Glider. (Yes, he really is that long. Longer, I think. … Continue reading
A woman’s safety razor can painlessly remove mats from a Maine Coon cat’s chest. But of course, that doesn’t mean he likes it.
Via Glenn Reynolds, a few seconds of amusing adorability to get your mind off the world’s problems. (It’s a little less treacly with the mute button on.)
Several people have been asking, so here they are. First, Miss Gracie, doing what she loves most: Relaxing in the sun in my office (which I think is now her office). Since I work from home most days, Gracie spends … Continue reading
Sarah and the kids were in town today so that Jake could retake a couple of parts of the test for the gifted program. He was sick and on meds when he first took the test, and didn’t score highly … Continue reading
Proof positive that cats own us. Researchers at the University of Sussex have discovered that cats use a “soliciting purr” to overpower their owners and garner attention and food. Unlike regular purring, this sound incorporates a “cry”, with a similar … Continue reading
