Rats and cats in NYC

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 12.20.21 AMHumans say New York is full of these things.
But the only rats I ever saw were deceased.
People say a lot of things about New York
that aren’t true.

Chased by humans in NYC

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 12.20.57 AMThis looks like the church I was chased out of.
Those humans who tried to catch me never
had a chance. Not with those dresses they
were wearing.

Grand Central’s not the best place to be homeless

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 12.20.46 AMHere’s where I spent the winter as a disciple. It’s called Grand Central. I never actually saw this part of it with people.
Us cats had to wait until they were gone before we could come out.

Lazing around before becoming homeless

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 12.19.02 AMHere I am in one of the Old Lady’s rooms.

Emily showed me in a cat bed but, in truth,
I was usually on a sofa or a chair.

A painting of me?

wbig boo (1)Farnsworth, the lawyer, sent this over. It’s a sketch for a painting the Old Lady was going to have done. It’s just as well. It makes me look really fat.

On Park Ave. with the Old Lady

Screen Shot 2015-12-05 at 5.40.10 PMThis is one of the few remaining shots of me when I was living on the Park with the Old Lady.

I looked great back then.

Living on the street in NYC

Screen Shot 2015-12-05 at 12.47.37 PMThis is a shot some human took when I was living in a box off Lex.

I don’t know who put the towel in but it was nice of them. Could have been thicker, though.

Me living with the “Old Lady”

Screen Shot 2015-12-05 at 5.24.01 PM

This isn’t one of my favorite photos. The Old Lady took it and she wasn’t very good at that sort of thing.

I look like an oily blob on her living room carpet.

Thanks to illustrator Emily Cornell du Houx

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 12.19.02 AMWhile I was thanking people the other day, I wanted to add another human but was told there wasn’t room on the page. Now, I know better.

The human I want to thank is Emily Cornell du Houx who did all the great illustrations for my book, Nine Lives on the Street. Not only are the drawings great but Emily took the time to show me each one and explain where in the book they’d go. She was very nice. When she’s not illustrating soon-to-be-best-selling books (if you do your part) Emily is a very big deal at the Rhode Island School of Design. Which I understand is a famous design school. Whatever that is.

Welcome to Nine Lives on the Street

Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 5.39.24 PMOK, that does it. Boo’s only been gone a few months and humans are already forgetting about him. And by that I mean not buying his book and not giving him his propers for writing it.

Well, I’m not going to let that happen. I just took over his page or whatever it’s called on that Facebook thing and I figure I might as well take over this one, too. Boo would have wanted it that way.

The thing that made me do this is this photograph of Saunders. Here he is at some Book Club surrounded by female humans and taking credit for Boo’s book. As if.

I mean Saunders only took down what Boo told him to write. It’s just another example of humans exploiting cats for their own gain. Have they no shame? Anyway, I’m taking over for the late, great Boo.

And there’ll be some changes. No more cat videos that make us look stupid, for one. The other kind are OK I guess. And if you’ve got questions about cats, send them on. If they’re not too dumb, I’ll answer them. Maybe.

BTW, my name is Monster. But you can call me … Monster

Welcome to Nine Lives on the Street.

DSCF0555If you’ve read a book called Nine Lives on the Street, then you know all about me and how I came to live on the street. (Well, actually, a lot of streets.) And if you haven’t read it, you really should. Otherwise, this won’t make a lot of sense.

This is what humans call a “blog.” The nice humans who published the book suggested I have one. They thought you might want to send in questions about me, my friends, and cats in general.

I guess you could say I’m kind of an expert on cats, being one myself.

Oh, by the way, you can call me Boo.
