Biography

My full name is Theobold the Magnificent, Panther Boy of Death. You may call me Theo for short. I am an almost black cat, a mix of Siamese and others, but the Siamese predominates although my eyes are not blue. I adopted Linda and Michael in 2006. They resisted at first, but eventually gave in, as I knew they would. I am still in the process of training them, and it's an uphill battle, but hey. You do the best you can with humans, you know?

You say “Vacation”– I say “Abandonment.”

Theo the cat in our luggage, trying to keep us from packing

Well, it’s happened again. Almost as soon as I wrote my thoughts about “weekends’”– and only mentioned “vacation” in passing, my humans up and leave me. And this time, for a whole week. That’s a really, really long time in Cat hours and days. OK, they did leave a pretty nice friend of theirs to …

It’s waaaaayyyy past my breakfast time. Does anyone care?!!?

Theo the Magnificent here again. I suddenly realized that in my recent post, I had neglected to cover all the days of the week when I addressed feeding times, and how to get your humans to feed you when YOU want to be fed. That is, I had forgotten the two days of the week …

A Rare Thank-You from Theo (Alert the Media!)

Black cat at Furkids shelter

I had intended to post my additional comments today about getting fed on “weekends” – as humans call them, because those two days of the week seem to be so different from the other five days. But instead, I overheard my human talking about some “charity” she supports, which takes in Cats (as well as …

Feeding Time: How to Control Your Humans and Therefore, Control Feeding Time

One of the most burning Cat questions has always been, “How can I get my humans to feed me when I want to be fed, how much I want to be fed, and what I want to be fed?” (That’s actually three questions, but we can address at least one of them in today’s column.) …

Why Everything in the House Belongs to Us

It is constantly amazing to me, and I assume to the rest of you in CatWorld, that my humans consider all of the items in their home to be “their” possessions. Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth. Everything in the house is clearly ours. Unless we just don’t want it, in which case …

Basic Cat/Human Etiquette

Theo_the_cat_sleeping_in_two positions_one_with_his_paws_over_his_eyes

It should not surprise any of you in CatWorld that there are some basic rules of etiquette governing how we interact with our human slaves (or servants or whatever you prefer to call them). However, it’s probably not very surprising that the humans don’t always seem to know these rules. So, as my first piece …

Introducing Theo Live and in the Fur

Hello, I am Theo the Magnificent, Panther Boy of Death. (It really should be Panther MAN of Death, though, don’t you think? Or maybe just Panther of Death… after all, a Panther is infinitely superior to a human, don’t you agree?) It’s about time my human let me speak up for myself. I thought she …
