Is this cat becoming a Space Age Cat?
Is this for real? Has my Cat Lenny beamed up to somewhere in space? While he may act a bit spacey at times, he’s never blasted off beyond the atmosphere. He can jump pretty high, but we at Paws for Reflection, don’t think he’s any match for the cow that jumped over the moon. Could this be some far away galaxy? Did he get catnapped by a Martian? Did someone from Jupiter pick up a cat-hiker?
Is this cat in space or on earth?
Or could this be an extraterrestrial beam that coming down into our living room trying to get kitty to come beyond the stratosphere and become a Space Age Cat
Could it be that he got outside and get beamed up to a Star Trek like spaceship, and got dropped off on another planet? Kind a looks that way, but the reality is, he’s in the comfort of his own living room, with his 4 feline siblings and human mom. We are laggards (the last to buy a first flat screen TV), and Lenny checks it out, as his human takes his photo. The moon is really the reflection of the flash on the TV. We really think these are pawsomely cool selfies.
Everyone is getting in on the selfies craze, including astronauts and Space Cats. We thought we’d get in on it too, from on Earth or outer space.
Beam me up to the Mother Ship, Scottie
There just has to be space catnip, plez!
If your cats could go into outer space, where do you suppose they would want to go? Would they like to be on the moon and look down at us, or on Saturn, where they would be entertained by the rings going round and round, day and night?

Homer the Blind Cat became famous through his human Gwen Cooper’s bestselling book ‘Homer’s Odyssey’, bringing much-needed attention to how special a blind cat can be.
After his death, he became infamous, and Cooper tells just how much so in her 115-page sequel, ‘Homer, The Ninth Life of a Blind Wonder Cat’ available at Amazon.com.
It’s a fascinating perspective about book publishing promotion, pet loss and the power of social media. Had Paws for Reflection read the sequel, perhaps we would not be blogging, as the countless photo shoots, interviews, and attention Homer received would have been unfathomable. We frequently point to reading Homer’s story as a catalyst for taking writing about cats to a whole new level.
We can just picture the humor, the fear, the loss, and the rebuilding that are painted through words in his sequel.
The story takes on a humorous twist, becomes humorous as Homer, initially thrilled by all the attention, becomes so bored with photo shoots that Cooper’s husband Laurence has to run cross town in Manhattan to find his most special food to bribe him to cooperate. He’s become so used to the attention that it has become a Big Bore, and he chooses to take a nap rather than pose for one more photo shoot.
We can only imagine Homer aging and losing his best feline friends, Vashti and Scarlett, who had been a part of his life since Cooper took him home when he was only a few weeks old. Homer, also hated going to the veterinarian. In a tear- jerking saga, Homer becomes very ill, so much so that he can barely move. When the emergency vet tells her to stay in the waiting room as they examine him, she tells of a blood curdling scream coming from out back. It’s Homer. Being blind, he had no way of knowing what was happening. He was terrified. His human never leaves him alone with a vet again. Sadly, Homer is diagnosed with terminal liver disease, and we travel down Cooper’s year-long end of life journey with her very special feline.
These cats are getting a whiff of spring, from the crocuses outside, to the bright sunshine streaming in the windows, to the Mum that is grasping at life after spending a winter in hibernation. What are your cats doing today as they take advantage of Spring which only recently sprung upon us?

‘Making the Most of All Nine Lives: The Extraordinary Life of Buffy the Cat’ portrays just how humanly adventurous this one in a million cat, Buffy, is as he poses in some extraordinary places for his human, Paul Smulson. These unbelievable pictures take on even more significance as Award Winning pet lifestyle expert, author and radio, TV and pet industry personality, Sandy Robins pens one after another yarn into a laugh out loud event and a must-have book for any true cat lover.
Could we find as much humor on the thousands of cat posts all over the Internet? This 128-page book tells funny cat stories straight from the cat’s mouth, and he excels with both his wit and his prowess.
Extraordinary Life of Buffy the Cat
When reading this book, Paws’ mom’s jaw went agape at Buffy posing as a pilot the cockpit of an airplane. How could he even get there, say anything about pose so calmly in his pilot attire?
On the golf course, how could Buffy hold the golf club? How could he do a karate chop? From Passover to the Ale House, Paws was amazed, wondering how he could do that. If these are real cat life situations. We wondered, how could Buffy mold into so many human situations like he was indeed a human?
Robins documents how Buffy managed to trade hairballs for golf balls, scratching posts for the ‘Evening Post’ and stopped meowing yawns in favor of mowing lawns. Buffy says, ‘I’ve always felt that I never received enough attention (one of my pet peeves), so I decided to transition from litter box to literature with this new tale of the tabby.’
