In French, the word “bookworm” can be translated into the expression “rat de bibliothèque” (library rat). Well, I’m certainly not a rat (!) or a worm (!!) but I’ve always loved books! I guess that makes me a bookcat!

These pics were taken when I was about 9 months old, at my human’s Mom’s home. I was on top the book case. You can click on any picture of the gallery below to biggify and get to the diaporama but first I want to show you something.

Can you see the wallpaper peeling a little near the ceiling? It was me! I wanted to be a home decorator at the time! And can you see my tail? That’s because my human thought I wouldn’t be a good home decorator! The nerve!
You will be able to see that on several pics I am watching my piece of art very proudly!

Speaking of books, my human and I will review a wonderful book on Thursday.

I also learned from Cat Wisdom 101 that April is National Poetry Month. It will finally (I say finally because this has been a project since last December!) be the occasion for a book giveaway linked to poems, drawings and… kitties of course! And this will be on Caturday!

So I wish everyone a great week and hope to see you all on these two days especially!

You may remember that I had a technique to get your humans’ attention when they decide to read instead of playing with you. This technique worked on the couch, as you can see on the pictures, but what if your human decides to read in bed?

It is actually no different. It’s on the bed after all, so all you have to do is go sleep on it. The book that is.

Hiya, human! Is it time to sleep already?



Let me check your clock! Oh yes! It is time!



Sorry, no time to read



Sweet dreams!

I bet my human is going to rush to the store to check it out. I’m talking about Ms Reich’s children book, “Minette’s Feast: The Delicious Story of Julia Child and her Cat”

The story, she said, should delight not just kids, but foodies, cat lovers, Child fans and Francophiles.

“Minette’s Feast: The Delicious Story of Julia Child and her Cat,” was released May 1 by Abrams and tells the story of Child’s first cat she adopted when she lived in Paris in 1948 with her husband, Paul. At the time, Child was learning to cook and the couple lived in an old apartment near the Seine.

I have lived in Paris too! Oui Madame !

Reich explained that as Child was learning to cook, she would often give Minette the leftovers. Her apartment, she added, also had mice in the walls.

“The crux of the story is about the cat preferring the mice to anything Julia Child cooks,” Reich said.

This reminds me something

Gotta tell my human to buy it. Also you can check the author’s website.

Sometimes, humans just don’t have a sense of priorities. I have already mentioned how you can get your human’s attention when your human is busy with a laptop.

Well, my human, on top of reading cooking blogs, reads a lot of books. Below is a simple technique to remind your human that you exist and you are more important than any book.

See? Easy as 1, 2, 3, as humans say.

Make sure to cover the book as much as possible. Et voilà !
