Welcome to The Cat's World!
Fireworks in The Cat's World

If you have come here by accident please don't leave because you are in for a real treat. You have arrived at the home page of my www - wickedly wonderful website.

I am The Cat by the way and if you like to laugh and have fun then this is the place for you!

It gives me great pleasure to say that this www - wickedly wonderful website of mine is really becoming a world that I can properly welcome you to. You may have noticed that my amazingly popular website has grown just a little and that is because now I have added my latest masterpiece of feline literature to it "The Cat's Travelogue."

If you let your mouse hover over the bit of the page above that looks more like a peeling bit of wallpaper and then click you will be whisked to a completely new section of my dual mode website and I know you are going to love it as much as you love the original. P.S. The mouse is the thing in your hand, if you are using a trackpad I admire you!

Here you can read a little from my wonderful book "Getting Out - Excerpts From A Cat's Diary," either using a sneak peek of the first 20 or so pages or indeed every day when we show first couple of paragraphs of a different excerpt from what has been described not only by me as 'a work of pure genius.'

Just look at the Reviews page for what people have been kind enough to say, without being forced or paid of course! People can be really nice sometimes or is it just my readers, and I bring out the best in them? Probably!

If you want to sample my wonderful book you can download the first 20 pages here or read on for today's Excerpt of The Day...

Day 274 of My Captivity:

One thing I do know like last time is that the pampering is not going to last and I am 'making hay while the sun shines,' which is an expression that farmers used originally to let people know that they would do whatever they were doing while the conditions were optimal, which of course is to make lots of noise when making hay and spraying enormous quantities of harmful chemicals at other times from equally noisy enormous tractor driven spray machines.

Thinking about 'making hay while the sun shines,' is a daft expression, if you ask me, you are hardly likely to make hay when it is dark are you, but then no one said that farming needed much in the way of intelligence did they? There are only two things that farmers need, raw brute strength and a red face, well as far as I can tell.

Happily the expression has sort of migrated from being used to describing the actions of noisy, polluting farmers and now really means that anyone who makes hay while the sun shines, is going to take advantage of the moment or as the Romans used to say in Latin, Carpe Diem, which roughly translated means seize the day and I followed the Romans advice and did.

So at least with my new motto Carpe Diem I am ready for the time when the pampering stops, and I am sure, knowing my luck that it will be soon, I also know that I am going to have to be very careful with the next stunt, or should we call it an escape attempt, I don't fancy being buried alive next time, and let's face it I haven't been very far away from being buried alive recently.

I am sure that being buried alive isn't something that everyone could handle, still I am reasonably confident that if it happens again and I am actually buried alive I could cope, because I came very close the other day, and not only that I have watched late night television and survived.
