So, you hoomans will be eating lots of chocolate and if you celebrate Easter you’ll be celebrating Easter. Bank holiday means that more hoomans will not be working on Bank Holiday Monday and so there will be more hoomans on the pavements. I don’t really mind hoomans walking on the pavements but purr-lease make sure you leave enough room for us cats, and the birds and the insects and the worms, are worms insects? Mn. I will have to ask Shehooman. Oh and the dogs, don’t forget the dogs they need a lot of room.
Did I tell you that we have a lodger? Her name’s Izzy Cat and she was found by shehooman Tina. Shehooman Tina contacted Cats Protection and they took her in. Then shehooman Delphine said she might like to move in here. I think she came in October and she hasn’t left yet. She eats the food I leave for later and sometimes sticks her paw out and trips me up.
Izzy Cat is 8 years old. I don’t know how old that is but it must be older than me because I’m 6 or 9 years old. Not as old as Izzy Cat.
Whilst I’m sorting out the paperwork Izzy Cat likes to play football, especially with a golf ball and its really noisy.
Its #sardinesaturday today and after we had our lunch we went into the garden-room. Look Izzy Cat is trying to colour her belly!
We were enjoying the sunshine. I was in the garden-room and Izzy Cat was lying on the mat. Then a cloud come over so we ran inside. I hope no ones cooking in the sky, I don’t like thunder.
And now we’re pretending to be asleep on the bed.
Yesterday I was on The Beach Radio with presenter Kate McCabe. Well I wasn’t actually on there because my Catvan was in the garage being mended but she did talk about me.
You must listen tomorrow morning (Sunday) to The Beach Radio between 11.30/40 am.
Kate will have a new feature which was inspired by me #ChattyCat and #AlbertThePug #PetShoutOuts

Until next time.
Love, Chatty Cat x
My shehooman took me to Gorleston Library recently. Well she didn’t take me exactly but she took my books and some cuddly toys.
Here are some photos of author, Rosie Owen, reading book 3 in the Chatty Cat series, ‘Chatty Cat: My Purr-fect Friends’.
And whilst Rosie was reading the children coloured my pictures in. Look!
Here are some of the pictures from my Chatty Cat book series (drawn by illustrator, Lynne Rooney). I think the children coloured them in really well.
And this little girl read a story from the book. I hope she liked it.
Well that’s all from me for now. It’s getting late and I need to get some sleep. In my next blog I will tell you all about Izzy #newcat.
Night night. Love Chatty Cat x
Last week this box arrived and my shehooman was really excited. She took out the thing in it and left the box there. I don’t know why, she knows I do not like cardboard boxes. I know, I know that all cats like cardboard boxes but this cat, aka Chatty Cat, does not.
Shehooman put it out in the garden-room and then I had a thought. I could hire it out to my furry friends but how much could I charge? 10 minutes for two treats or 10 treats? What do you think?
This is the inside and the box looks like a bit of a hooman coffin doesn’t it? And if you look through to the back of the box you’ll see something. Can you see it?
Shehooman pulled it out and it’s that bubbly stuff that hoomans like to pop. So I had a thought. When a furry rents the box from me it can give me extra treats for a bit of bubbly for their hoomans. Simples.
Later my shehooman goes out and comes back on her bike with an ape on the back.
I ask him, ‘Where you going to sleep? In the cat den?’ But he doesn’t answer me. I then ask him if he wants to hire my cardboard box and he still doesn’t answer me. So I pull my ears back and bite him on the nose and run away.
Later I hear shehooman telling the telephone that she is going to use the ape for ‘Guess the name of the ape’ at the Memory Walk to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Still don’t know where he’s going to sleep tonight, do you?
Bye fur now
Sorry I’ve been away for so long, I’ve been writing my new books.
Well, I haven’t actually written them cos I can’t write.
Now as you know my books are a series of Chatty Cat books which are unique cos I tell the story to my shehooman, Suzan Collins, and she types them up. You can read about my life and at the same time read some helpful tips on caring for us.
I have two new books out. Look!
Book 3: Chatty Cat: My Purr-fect Friends
‘Chatty Cat, the funny, sulky and occasionally wise rescue cat is back for the third time, and has lots to say for herself! She is very well settled in her new home and has trained her she-hooman, Jade, to provide nearly everything she needs. Jade still has a few bad habits, though, which Chatty needs to sort out. In this third Chatty Cat book, you will find out how she makes new friends, goes on fresh adventures and discovers more about the fascinating world she inhabits. Learn more about Chatty’s life, likes and dislikes, and what to do when your hooman is stealing from you . .’
In this book, ‘Chatty Cat: My Purr-fect Friends’, Little Cat is being bullied by Bully Cat and in another story my furry friends and I are sat on the grass when we meet a man whose wife has dementia. The rest of the stories are… no I mustn’t tell you; I will leave you to buy a copy or go to your library and borrow the book.
Book 4: Chatty Cat: Activity Book
‘Chatty Cat’s new book is full of fun-filled things for you to do, and is based on the bestselling series. There are sixty pages of activities including crosswords, colouring, spot the difference and word searches, featuring many of the characters from the previous books. Gather your pens and pencils and have a great time with Chatty Cat and her friends.’

This was me yesterday, in the sunshine in my garden-room. And even though it was Fish-Friday I didn’t get any fish to eat. I wonder if it’s Fish-Friday again today. Mn.
The sun switch isn’t on today. I did meow at my shehooman to turn it on but she said she couldn’t (and hoomans think they can do everything. Ha!).
Look at my purr-fect new book covers, they are pawesome.
And guess what; book three in the Chatty Cat series will be out next week. I don’t want to show you the new cover just yet or any of the lovely illustrations done by my illustrator Lynne Rooney but I will show you more when the book is released.
My books are written from my point of view and in my new book, ‘Chatty Cat: My Purr-fect Friends’ I meet new friends, Stray Cat, Clancy Cat, Toffee Cat, Sooty Cat, Bert the Parrot, Brandi Dog, Rocky Dog, Charley the Mouse and Om and Daenerys the Tortoises. I also have three childhoomans with their own stories about their cats.
