Luna The Fashion Kitty and Who Moved My Mouse

These may very well be my favorite pics ever of a cat with my book. I may need to hire Luna The Fashion Kitty as official spokesperson for the book. (Don't tell Lucy). 

Ouch. Is my writing really that boring? Or is this just a cat's natural reaction to being told what to do?

Cat Mulan's Mindful Musings

About a year ago, I reviewed a pre-published book for a colleague. Yesterday in the mail, I received this HUGE package from her containing copies of the published book, a lovely thank-you note, cat toys and--BIG excitement in the Harris household--a new cat tunnel. 

That, people, is how to do a "thank you" in style.

The book is a delight. It's a gift book called Cat Mulan's Mindful Musings and the author, Margie Yee Webb, also took all the stunning photographs you'll see in the book. The text is cute and will make you smile but the photos...! They will just make any true cat lover melt. You can't paw through this book and not want this cat for yourself.

Blatant Promotion for A (Funny) Friend

[Hmm. See a pattern in recent blog post titles? Nope, me neither.]

Brought in the mail yesterday and found my friend Ron Culberson's new book awaiting me, signed and including a snide remark about cats. (Let it go, Ron. Cats rule.)

His inexplicable preference for dogs over cats aside, Ron is a good guy. More than that, he's funny. Damn funny. Like, spit your coffee out laughing funny. All the really good jokes in my new book? Ron's ideas. We've been editing each other's work since we met years ago at an Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop. Ron makes my writing funnier and I try to dull his work down so I look better by comparison. It's a great relationship.

My Kneecap Seems Too Loose: 365 random thoughts to inspire deeply shallow thinking is the perfect book for those of you who've ever wondered why it's necessary for coffee shops to announce they offer "fresh" coffee or why we say "Go!" when we look at a stopwatch. This book makes the perfect gift for a college grad, best friend, neighbor, or anyone you just want to mess with. If you can overlook the puns (Ron knows how I feel about puns), you'll love it! 

If you don't want to take my word about how funny Ron is, check out his websites: FunnierSpeeches.com and FUNsulting.com

Do Not Trust False Kitty

Rumor has it there is a 4-year-old kitty in Tokyo named @NyatsbyKitti who is trying to pass himself off as the model for the cat on Lessons In Stalking.

DO NOT ACCEPT AN IMPOSTER. @LUCY_CAT IS THE ONLY TRUE CAT. 

That's a bad kitty, Nyatsby! Bad kitty! (Even though you are very pretty...)
