The Cats Who Crossed Over from Paris: Enchanting New Book for Kids & Animal Lovers; Hailed “Fantastic!” by Critics.

Out of all pets, cats have a distinct personality and aura of seriousness that makes them some of the most fascinating creatures on the planet. According to many cat owners, their pets always appear to be plotting something, including the leading felines in R.F. Kristi’s enthralling new book.

‘The Cats Who Crossed Over from Paris’ is part one of Kristi’s new ‘Inca Cat Series’. Forget simple meowing – these cats have a crime to solve!

Synopsis:

Inca, a Siberian puss, tells the story about her furry family – her brother Fromage, who is addicted to cheese and considers himself a cheese monger, and her sister, Cara, a gorgeous but timid Siamese. Inca, an avid fan of Dr. House, considers herself the leader of the troupe and responsible for the well-being of the family. They own, according to Inca, Missy, a young humanoid who has a well-established cheese shop in Paris. The story revolves around how Missy decides to move to London with her co-partners, Jacques and Genevieve, to run their new cheese shop and café. Can Fromage leave his pal, Charlotte, behind? Soon after arriving in London, the three cats accompany Missy to their neighbor’s house where they meet Monk, a blue Russian cat and Terrance, a golden retriever owned by their famous neighbor, a detective named Solo, living in the same compound in Kensington.

Things start to get interesting when Monk tries to help their neighbor, Polo, a sad little Pekinese whose mistress, a formerly well-known opera singer who is pining for her lost husband, has her valuable diamond necklace stolen. Can Inca and her family assist Monk and Terrance to recover the diamond necklace and resolve Polo’s problems

Mother Cat and Kittens – Mother’s Day Cats

A mother cat and her kittens share a very special bond. Adorable and very tiny, newborn kittens rely on their mother for warmth, food and protection. As they take their wobbly first steps and begin exploring the world the mother cat guides them along, showing them what is good to eat, how to drink water and how to hunt prey and so much more. In short she teaches her little kittens how to be cats. Many of whom go on to join new human families and hopefully find new human mums and dads to love them and take care of them!

Sunday the 26th of March is Mother’s Day, or Mothering Sunday here in the UK. A special day to show our appreciation and love for our mums, who we all share a very special bond with. It’s also a time to spend with our families if we can, including the feline members…

As a cat lover and artist I have designed and illustrated some new cats and kitten cards for the cat loving mums and cat mums (and dads) out there, ready to send for Mother’s Day, or other special occasions when a cute cat is the best messenger. Happy Mother’s Day folks! 🙂 Meow…

Thanks to Marc for inviting me to share my cats with you! I have a growing range of cat cards and cat prints available directly from my shop – Teeth and Claws and also via my Etsy shop too. Do take a peek…

Secret Lives Of Street Cats In Riga

There are a lot of cats living on the street all over the world. And, one of the European city, Riga is not an exception. There are hundreds of feral cats. One of the local cat care non-profit organization decided to show the world street cats who deserve our love, care and attention.

Cat Care Community has spent the last year making the photos and helping street cats find real loving home. Photographing cats has been the main key to bringing the world that each of the cat has a story to tell.

Many people argue about that street cats are not safe for humanity, but there are different Trap-Neuter-Return programs, that works great and helps to control population and health problems of street cats. What do you think about street cats?
