Our hooman's Great-Uncle, Eugene, was drafted (lists of new draftees were published in local newspapers) to the Great War/WWI. He was captured by the Germans or, as he referred to them in his letters, by the Round Heads (German soldiers wore round helmets). His letters spoke of harsh weather, sparse if any food & being moved to different prisons.  He knew what countries he was in but never sure where in that country (no maps).

Thank you to all Veterans who have served & still serve & their family members!  We're sending a special meow-out to the animals who serve while in harms way as well as the pets at home tryin' to figure out where their mom or dad went & what those words "war" & "service" are all about. Thank you!

Most important, Fran is the best "Catch-the-Laser" player of all the hoomans that we know!  Gracee & I never tire of playin' that game!  But here you catch Fran & I takin' a break -- just kickin' it.  Fran's reclinin' & me?  I'm perchin' & purrin!'  

Welcome to Cat Authors

Cat Authors is a blog about cats, by cats, and maybe even for cats. You'd be surprised how much of our referral traffic comes from videos of mice, and slowmotion cat-food-pouring GIF's. To be purrfectly honest with you, though we don't always get along, we feel we are easily among the most likable literary cats around.
