Today’s guest post comes from Karen and Piggy the cat!
Hello. My name is Piggy.
About four years ago, my human, Matt, introduced me to the world on his YouTube page, Matt3756. His Journey to the Claw Machine series has become fun and popular, and when fans began noticing me in some of his videos, they sent me letters, drawings, toys and treats. I had no idea I would be so loved.
You see, I began my life as a rescue cat. My adopted sister Vision the cat and I were neglected and sent to Animal Friends where a wonderful man found us and gave us a new home. This man, Rick, who is Matt’s uncle, was very kind and gave us all the love and food we needed. At the time, Matt was living with his uncle, and I felt a connection, a bond, as it were, with him. I snuggled in bed with him every night, spent my days in his room enjoying his silly antics and all the attention he gave me.
Later when Matt began filming videos and included me, I felt a bit camera shy at first. But then when I got my own Facebook page and found such a great following, I became a cat diva!
I am extremely fond of Spaghettios and Doritos. But I do love tuna treats as well. Bird watching out the window is a favorite pastime of mine.
About three years ago, my dear sister Vision crossed over the rainbow bridge. She didn’t look well, and one day Matt brought her to the vets and she never came home. Though I had my human to look after me, I think he sensed my loneliness. One day he came home with a box that was making funny screeching sounds. When he opened the box, a furry gray striped kitten waddled out. I didn’t know what to think of her at first since she was way too playful for an older cat like me.
Time went on, and Goober the cat, as my new sister came to be known, found her way into my heart. We snuggle together, and she lets me bathe her which is pretty cool. I can’t even picture what life was like before her.
I have an awesome grandmother, Karen, who runs my Facebook page, and she wanted to give back to Matt’s fans and the cat community something they could enjoy which would convey the fun of my page and a funny, yet touching story they could read. She approached me about writing a book, and I was glad to oblige. The result is our new book called “Piggy.” We’ve gotten some really nice reviews already, some people saying it’s a “cat book with heart,” and they actually cried in certain parts and laughed in others.
I’m very fortunate to have such loving humans in my life, and a wonderful network of cat friends, like Katzenworld who was kind enough to tell my little “tail” on their blog.
A very special thank you to all who enjoy my page and especially to those of you who read and enjoy my book. We’d love to hear from you.
