The Adventures of Beauregard, the Cat
An original short novel written and copyrighted 1999 by Glenda W. Moore
On the following pages is the story of an ordinary housecat who went on a Big Adventure. The story is a mixture of fantasy and "cold reality." I think you will find it to be entertaining, suspenseful, and heartwarming.

Catspotting- by Cathy Pearson
"Day return to St Pauls", I shouted above the noise of an incoming train, whilst rummaging through the contents of my bag for a credit card. If I missed this train I would be late for my job interview; not an auspicious start. I was already getting a bad feeling about this day, there was a lingering doubt about my choice of clothes and the fact that my hair had refused to respond to every hair product known to the bathroom cupboard, did little for my confidence

So You Want to Work with Animals?
by The Cats Protection League Veterinary Officer
At the age of eight, a relative who was taking me to the zoo asked, "Do you still want to be a vet, Margaret?" Looking back, I consider myself to be one of the lucky ones because I became a vet but it has taken a lot of hard work and determination.

- Cats of Cairo-Egypt's Enduring Legacy
- Goddess or Cat? Is your feline friend not telling you something? Does your cat REALLY have royal ancestry? Find out in the soon to be released photographic gift book, Cats of Cairo-Egypt's Enduring Legacy.
- Cairo cats are street-smart survivors whose direct ancestors in ancient Egypt were revered as gods. But a family reunion between them and your cozy fireside feline could result in a cross-cultural misunderstanding. These direct descendants of CleoPAWtra have a CAT story and heritage that places them (in their minds anyway) into the realm of Pharaonic gods and goddesses. Is this an attitude you recognize? Was your feline friend once a goddess?
- Your cats cousins were so beloved in ancient days that they were portrayed in statues and, upon the death of a cat, a lavish funeral was held. Since then, the tradition of adoring cats has continued. According to folk tradition, the prophet Muhammad cut off his coat sleeve because he had to stand up for prayer and didn't want to disturb his cat who was napping on his sleeve. Today, the mystique of the cat lives on.
- The Cats of Cairo are elusive creatures. During her seven-year stay in Cairo, Lorraine Chittock searched the nooks and crannies where feline denizens of the city hide. "They don't hang out," says Chittock, "they slink." To obtain intimate portraits of these wary animals, Ms. Chittock had to become "a wildlife tracker in an urban environment."
- Elusive and remote, Cats of Cairo are watching and waiting for their time of rule to return. Is your cat doing the same? If you want to see four of these cat goddesses yourself, click on

- Cat Killing a Bird
The Audubon Society has identified domestic and feral cats as significant contributors to the decline of song bird populations in the United States. It is estimated that there are approximately 55 million domestic cats and 45 million feral cats in the United States, and many of them are proficient bird hunters. Domestic cats are not a natural predator and wild birds are poorly equipped to deal with the threat they pose.

- Cats and Wildlife: A deadly combination
Free-roaming domestic cats in the United States annually kill hundreds of millions of birds and three times as much small wildlife (mammals, reptiles, and amphibians).
Despite the volume of cat-related wildlife injuries and deaths, many people argue that this is “natural.” This is not so. Most cat “prey” consists of native species; while cats are an introduced species. According to the American Bird Conservancy, “Wildlife in the Western Hemisphere did not evolve in the presence of a small, abundant predator like the domestic cat, and thus, did not develop defenses against [it].”
A recent study also shows that cats are contributing to increases in the insect population by killing insect-eating birds. The problem is further compounded because as wilderness areas continue to decline, birds and other animals are seeking backyards, parks, and gardens as resting places and sources of food and water.
Ground nesting, feeding, nestling, and fledgling birds particularly are at risk. Cats also kill small native mammals that other native species, such as hawks and kestrels, rely on for food. Further, cats are not conservationists, and their prey can include endangered species

Ode to CATS, Pablo Neruda, 1904-1973
There was something wrong with the animals:
their tails were too long and they had
Then they started coming together,
little by little
fitting together to make a landscape,
developing birthmarks, grace, pep.
But the cat,
only the cat
turned out finished,
born in a state of total completion,
it sticks to itself and knows
exactly what it wants.
MAN, A poem for cat lovers
Lives in cell
M-A-N that's YOU.
Ode to Spot by Lieutenant Commander Data

Catwatching by Desmond Morris (UK)
Did you ever wonder why cats seem to be drawn towards people who actually dislike or are afraid of them? Or why our pure breed cats still like to present us with "gifts" of a freshly caught prey, a mouse maybe? If so, this is certainly something for you. The study has taken years to complete and consists of a vast amount of background knowledge and a huge portfolio of amazing photography.
