Of mice, moonlight and Colin Firth

Dear George,
I’m thinking of becoming a magician! Do you know of any cats that turned magicians?
Last night I’ve watched with my mommy “Magic in the moonlight”. I loved the movie!
I love Colin Firth (hope you like him too)
Anyway, in the movie, right in the beginning, he makes a whole elephant to disappear!
Wow! Just like this - magic! I’ve got hooked on the movie and the tricks performed by world magicians! So, I was thinking to perform a magician’s trick for my mummy’s birthday entitled “Mouse on a run in the moonlight” I have the “moon” as you can see in the photo attached and I know the trick to get the mouse in! 
But, how do I make it stay inside that light globe and run like a guinea pig on a treadmill? That’s where I need your help! What do you think? Can we make it work?
With much appreciation

Dear Gizmo,
First catch your mouse! Then kill it. I don't think it will stay in that beautiful moon, whatever you do, if it is still alive. It will drop or leap out. And then you have a living mouse on the floor running around the house - something which scares human beings. 
They are a fearful species when it comes to rodents. They don't catch them. They don't eat them. And when we try to help out by bringing one in the house, they often stand on chairs shrieking. Now this is fun for us, but apparently not for them.
So, anything involving a mouse, will not work for a human.
PS. My nephew, George 11 (see right photo),  is trying very hard to learn how to type with his paws. Readers will learn why next week. And also why the photo at the top has changed. 


  1. George, can't wait to see what you are up to! Your nephew is cute but, what if he can't learn to type? Will Celia help?

  2. Oh! I loved that movie! We love Colin Firth too :-)

    George, where are you going? Now that I just finished writing a letter for next week & it's not going to be posted? Hmmm? What's going on? Hope all is good!

  4. No matter what...a dead mouse is not as funny as a live one! Gizmo, you need to come up with another trick! But, I love your idea!

    George, don't tell us you are replacing Celia with George II! Have you finally had enough of her shenanigans? Oh boy, now I can't wait for Saturday :-)

  6. I find George II quite good looking! Handsome & distinguished for a young tomcat:-))) Hmm! Hmm! Hmm! George, do you think George II is better looking than Celia?

  7. George, given the mystery of this situation let me ask you one question: can I borrower Celia for my office work? I know she slacks a lot on her duties but I just need few hours here and there! Think about and let me know! Wishing you the best always!

Help for cats whose humans show behaviour problems.

This blog is devoted to the study of human behaviour. We cats, who live with this sometimes unpredictable and always feeble minded species, can benefit from seeing their behaviour in its proper scientific context. The study of feline dilemmas, training problems, and difficulties with humans, can only benefit all of us. All of us train our humans - to buy the right food, for instance, but many of us do not have knowledge of how to improve our training methods. The human species is obviously not as intelligent as the cat, but nevertheless can learn quite a lot - if properly managed. Topics of interest include the use of claw and order, purring as a human reward, rubbing your human up the right way, when to bite, spraying as a method of making our wishes known, ignoring the human, human harassment, human inattention and sheer human stupidity. I welcome your questions. Photos can be sent via my secretary's website, This blog has been chosen as one of the top 50 feline blogs by Online
