Return Home, Wrath of Cat

I just returned from the Bay Area, where there were two fabulous Texts from Mittens events. The first was at Pegasus Books in Berkeley, and the other was at Cat Town Cat Cafe and Adoption Center in Oakland. They were both a ton of fun, and successful -- plus, I got to hang with old friends and meet some new ones.

Here are links to pics from both events:

Of course, when I returned home, Cosmo gave me the silent treatment for a couple of hours, treating me like a total pariah. Hey, I know my bag smells like other cats and you were certain I abandoned you forever, but I missed you, buddy!

Also, I will never abandon you, silly boy. Still, I had to face the wrath of this cranky face ... at least for a short time.

The Snark is Loud and Proud

Cats have a knack for sporting that perfect snarky look. In general, cats are pretty clear about their irritation with us. My cats enjoying expressing this disdain when they see me pointing a camera in their direction.

Phoebe's snark is loud and proud.

I Trust Weather Whiskers

I adore cats-as-people, and one of the pleasures of my day is checking out the weather on the Weather Whiskers phone app. Nobody at Weather Whiskers HQ paid me to promote their ridiculously adorable product, but it just feels wrong not to share it with you. Wrong, I say! Perhaps a crime.

And guess what? It's available for the iPhone as well as Android models. And it's free!

Seriously, gaze upon this guy. Wouldn't you rather get your current weather conditions from him instead of some boring meteorologist in a gray suit? Of course you would. Plus, look at those glasses -- you can trust those glasses. He's not the only feline weather guru -- there are a number of kitties ready to answer the question on everyone's mind every day: "What's it like outside?"

Sunny, with a chance of YES CATS!

CatConLA Was a Blast -- Get Your Signed Texts from Mittens Book!

Wow! I had a fantastic time at CatConLA last weekend, and just now feel like I'm catching up. I took tons of pics, which you can see here.

The vendors were phenomenal, the people-watching was fantastic, and over 70 cats were adopted through CatConLA and Best Friends Animal Society!

Plus, Francesco Marciuliano and I presented "Humor ... With Cats" to a crowd of hundreds -- it was so much fun!

If you didn't get a chance to make it to CatConLA this year (yes, there's one planned for 2016!), and would like a personalized copy of Texts from Mittens, you can buy one directly from me for the low, low price of $14 (including U.S. shipping -- ask about int'l).

Send me an email: angie@angie-bailey.com.

Hope to see you there next year!

My Cat Thinks He's Scary ... Um, No

Just landed in LA yesterday, in preparation for CatConLA (you can still get tickets, by the way). Super pumped to present and sign Texts from Mittens books on Sunday!

It was definitely hard to leave my boy Cosmo, who acts like a lost little kitten when I'm not around. He tried to intimidate me into staying, but with no good results. Sorry, bud -- I do not fear that face.

Cats Make Space Where There is None

Cats really are like liquid. They can somehow squeeze themselves into the most interesting spaces. I've heard cockroaches can do that, too. Cats are way better than cockroaches, though -- I don't think I want to snuggle a cockroach anytime soon. Do you suddenly feel itchy? I do.

Last night I was lying on the sofa, and Cosmo decided he wanted to squeeze himself into the space -- which was really a non-space -- between my leg and the sofa. He could have just climbed in my lap, but he seemed to want the challenge. So there he went, creating room where there was once none. I'm sure he was pleased; however, that position didn't look all that comfortable to me.
