News from the Muse: Twiggy's Twittering!

I like to type on the puter!
Hello, Friends! I wanted to update you on my latest mews. Mom set-up a Twitter account for me! I was so excited when she told me this. I sharpened my claws and got in my best hunting stance. Then she fired up the computer and logged me on to Twitter. I was ready to get those twitters! I looked and looked, but no twitters came out of the computer. So I looked at the printer. Again, no twitters! I opened the disk twitters! Perhaps it's a mail order thing, but there was no shopping cart button! I was puzzled, stumped, confused. Where do I get the twitters? So I meowed in frustration to mom for help. She explained how it worked. She told me that I could type any bits of news, thoughts, ideas etc., and it would be posted for followers to see. "Oh." I said. "So I guess twitters are NOT birds."

After I got over my initial disappointment of not being able to chase and capture birds that magically fly out of the computer, I found out how fun tweeting can be! I like being able to say "hi" to my friends and also find-out what they are doing. It's pretty neat! I hope to see you there soon too!

Hugs, purrs, and whiskerkisses,

Featured Pet

Today, our featured pet is actually two pets. Meet Mr. Jolly and Chester, from New South Wales, Australia. Their mom, Megan shared these lovely photos of the boys sporting their new Whiskerkisses collars.

Mr. Jolly is the beautiful orange and white tabby with lovely leaf green eyes wearing the "Got Treats?" Pet Bandanna. 100% of the proceeds from the bandanna go to help the animals of the Animal Welfare Society of Southeastern Michigan (AWS). Good for you, Megan and Mr. Jolly! He came to live with Megan, after suffering an accident. She had brought her dogs to the vet and was greeted by Mr. Jolly! The vet had mended his arm after he had put it through his flea collar and injured it quite severely. She fell in love with his gorgeous green eyes and brought the friendly cat home with her.

The beautiful and sleek black cat, Chester is showing off his new Social Climber collar and bow tie set. Megan says he looks very much like James Bond, and I have to agree! Chester was adopted from the RSPCA when he was 9 months old. He is friend to all, including the dogs.

Mr. Jolly looks up to Chester and tends to follow him where ever he goes and sleeps on the same bed (but not touching). It seems that Chester tolerates Mr. Jolly's hero worshiping, and like all good friends allows him to indulge.

Thank you, Megan for letting us share your sweet boys to everyone!
