Where's Henry?

Ever had one of those times when things seem to be going good, and it seems you have the world at your paws?

But then, out of nowhere you find yourself distracted...

And then your at a loss when you try to get your ducks back in a row?

I'm so there!

In fact, as you may have noticed, I haven't been able to post this week. Sadly, there won't be a Follow 5 Friday this week either. Mom has been busy working on finding a new job and hasn't been around much to help me. She did promise me though that I would be back to posting next week. So if your one of the fine kitties in line to be featured, we'll have you introduce yourself next week. If your not in line to be featured, but want to share your story you can contact me at catswhotwitter at gmail dot com or DM (me) @quadpawd on twitter!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Follow 5 Friday

Hello everyone! Welcome to another addition of Follow 5 Friday. Once again, I have 5 great kitties to introduce you to. I hope you enjoy their stories, and of course, make a few new friends while you are at it.

The first guest this week is MysticDaCat. Mystic is somewhat new to twitter, but has jumped right in with all four paws, has been leaving his mark.

How did you find your forever home? (Or how did it find you?)

Mommy works with a rescue called Colorado Furbabies as a foster mom and does some transportation too. When she found out the rescue was getting a litter of kitties she begged Daddy to let her get one. He said yes, but said he would like it to be a black or grey kitty. Mommy was a little worried, the litter was reported to be Siamese. When the transport person (Susan) called Mommy to let her know dey was close to Denver she asked Mommy if it was ok for her to take a kitten that was in its own carrier, that it was a sweet little all black kitty! Mommy was so excited! I been with Mommy and Daddy ever since! Meow!

What do you call the humans you live with?

Mommy and Daddy

What do you like to do, even though it drives your human(s) crazy?

Well, I like to meow at Daddy a lot! Sometimes I will just meow for no reason at all. Mommy says it can get pretty nerve wracking, but all she does is pick me up and love on me, mol. I yell at mommy and daddy when they are in the shower, I don't like it when dey in there!

Is there anything else you would like your twitter pals to know?

I am either a Burmese or Bombay kitty, mommy isn't sure cause they is very much alike. I is only about four months old. Mommy has recently given me title of Head Moth Muncher! She hates those moths and lets me eat all of them I want! I has two brothers, they are puppies. Dingo is an eight month old Blue Heeler. He is very nice to me, even tho he is always nom nom on my head and he slurps me and rolls me in da dirt. Wilson is a black lab mix, seven months old, possibly mixed with Great Dane Mommy says. He is not real smart, but is very sweet! I is also on Catster if anyone wants to look me up:

Recommend 5 of your twitter friends to our readers:

well, I gots to say my brothers: @Dingodadog and @Wilsondadog, dey is good guys, even if dey is dogs! mol! @FindMyDog - posts listing of lost pets from all over US. @PomegranPenguin he is funny guy! and last but not least, @shannonseek, she is cool and groovy lady with cat named Percy!


The second kitty has one of the coolest names ever. He’s also new to twitter, but HenryTheCat2002 has been reaching out and making pals all over the place.

How did you find your forever home? (Or how did it find you?)

I do not remember my first family too well. They thought I was an adorable kitten and loved me. I even had a leather collar. Then I got big and demanding and that I guess wasn’t so cute. Anyways, one day they moved and left me outside. The nice people in the apartment building used to feed me, but no one took me in. So I started wandering around. I found another apartment to hang out at, but it was hard- I was always hungry and tired and I am so gentle I had to hide from the bully cats!

One morning (at 6 am) I was sitting on my butt in the middle of Moorpark St, a very busy street at that. My mom came out to get the paper and saw me (she didn’t know she was my mom yet). I saw her and she looked nice so I ran to her and bum rushed myself into my new Home! I had something to eat and lay down and fell asleep for 5 hours! Then Mom told a lie to Daddy. She said she was going to find me a home, but I could tell she was in love with me so I got to stay! Now Daddy loves me, too. Oh, and my new home came with 3 brothers and a sister! Happy Endings do happen!

What do you call the humans you live with?

They are my Mommy and Daddy. Did I mention how much they love me?

What do you like to do, even though it drives your human(s) crazy?

I LOVE to talk. I talk all the time. I talk to myself at 3:00 am and wake them up. I like to sit at closed doors or get on top of the fridge and howl. I climb on the bathroom counters & “speed bag” and scratch the mirrors and also the shower door. Mom says she hasn’t slept through the night since I got here (August 21, 2004 my new birthday). Oh, and I also love to bite and chew things like cell phones and remotes. Did I mention how much they love me?

Is there anything else you would like your Twitter pals to know?

I am a big boy at 21 pounds. I am so gentle that people might think I am dumb, but I’m not. I like everyone, especially the birds outside the window! I am very relaxed, and could have been a good therapy cat. I am grateful to have such a great home and siblings! I have to work on the demanding attention all the time thing, but usually just can’t help myself.

Recommend 5 of your Twitter friends to our readers:

I am still pretty new to the twitter thing, but I have to say everyone I have met has just been warm and friendly and made me feel welcome! It’s pretty hard to recommend just five friends, but here goes: @JavaTheCat @YoungMrFudge @MizzBassie @TotallyLamont and @ThatStripeyCat.


Next we have my friend MedusaJ. I haven’t known her very long, but I do know she is a very sweet and thoughtful kitty.

How did you find your forever home? (Or how did it find you?)

My mum saw me in the window of the pet shop. I was hiding in the corner of the cage and all the other kitty's were playing. She just had to take me home.

What do you call the humans you live with?

There's Mum, the Dad and the Minidude

What do you like to do, even though it drives your human(s) crazy?

I like to launch myself at the venitian blinds, they make a massive racket and bend outta shape. My Mum says she despairs of me!

Is there anything else you would like your Twitter pals to know?

I'm scared of my own shadow, love chasing spiders and runnung like a lunatic around the garden.

Mulder(top) and Scully

The final two cats today are housemates. Mulder_Cat & Scully_Cat don’t always agree, but as you will soon see, they compliment each other quite well… *snicker*

How did you find your forever home? (Or how did it find you?)

Mulder: Way, way back in the last century…

Scully: It was 1999, you fool. Practically this century already.

Mulder: Let me tell this, will you? Scully and I were living in this tiny little house in Brooklyn, N.Y., with five other cats, three dogs, and a ferret. The owner’s granddaughter apparently had a soft spot for critters. Alas, she also had a soft spot for recreational drugs and was doing a stretch in the joint when her grandpa had a heart attack and had to leave his house. Kings Highway Cat Rescue had exactly one week to re-home everybody.

Scully: Yeah, that was pretty stressful. And your mom was still living with us.

Mulder: Ah, dear old Mom. She was a holy terror. I wanted out. Anyway, one of Staffpurrson’s co-workers knew Kings Highway, and his previous employer, a little tabby named Thai, had passed over to the Rainbow Bridge, so he was looking for some new employment and decided a two-kitteh firm would work well. So he got invited to the house and had his pick.

Scully: I immediately knew that this one was a keeper. Big soft mushy heart, eager to please. A real pushover. So I jumped up on the kitchen counter and walked right up to him and gave him a cheerful “meow.” He said, “I like this one, she likes me already!” Whotta sucker – I greet everybody like that. Of course he’d realize that too late.

Mulder: I was a little more reluctant. OK, a LOT. Staffpurrson said he wanted a boy because two girls don’t get along as well -- like me and your momma – and I was the only boy. So they chased me around and eventually cornered me, and I squeaked. Yeah, squeaked. He thought that was funny and said, “I’ll take him, too.” Smartest move he ever made.

Scully: It’s a good thing he was determined to get adult kittehs, because we were both three years old at the time. But Staffpurrson always says, “Kittens are like bundles of fast-twitch muscles with pins attached, and you never know what you’re gonna get.” He thought they’d know better with us. More fool, he.

What do you call the humans you live with?

Mulder: We call him Staffpurrson. Because he does our bidding.

Scully: Actually, I do most of the calling, especially when he comes home at night. I hop up on the table and meow incessantly: “Dinner! Dinner! Dinner!”

Mulder: Yeah, I don’t actually talk that much to him. I just whack him on the face with my paw – gently but firmly – when it’s time for him to get up. Occasionally I’ll mess with him with some nonstop calling and make him guess what I want.

What do you like to do, even though it drives your human(s) crazy?

Mulder: You’re assuming there are things we like to do that don’t drive him crazy. If they didn’t drive him crazy, we wouldn’t do them.

Scully: I like to interrupt his Internet browsing by hopping up on the computer desk, circling the computer, and meowing at him. Even if it’s a full three hours before mealtime.

Mulder: I like to knock loose objects off tables. Broke three drinking glasses that way before he outsmarted us and bought Tervis Tumblers. If he leaves anything on the bathroom counter, I’ll knock those into the sink until he comes and turns the tap on for us. And I always wait until he’s just about to go to sleep before I insist on playtime. He can be lying down and watching TV or reading, and I won’t bother him. But the second he actually tries to go to sleep – that’s when I want to be petted and skritched.

Is there anything else you would like your Twitter pals to know?

Mulder: I have a blog: I plan to post in it every day. I hope my pals will read it and be amused. I expect Staffpurrson to make it work. Scully will be an occasional guest poster.

Scully: Yeah, I prefer to maintain a certain air of mystery. Can’t do that if I’m always blabbing about this and that and the other.

Recommend 5 of your Twitter friends to our readers:

Mulder: Wow, that’s tough. Who hasn’t been recommended already? I’ll include a comedy superstar -- @sockington – and his acerbic Gal Friday, @pennycat. Also: @frugaldougal because he’s all about charitable good works at his #pawpawties;

@jessicakorman, who is my virtual staffperson away from Staffpurrson; and

@henryandfriends, who offer nothing but love and affection to everyone they meet.

Scully: I’m particularly fond of @katieboocat, @KM_Zencat, @Dixie_Belle, @ladycat3, and @Manxington. And about 300 other tweeters I’d love to mention!


Well, there you have it folks. Five great cats, with plenty of cattitude to go around. Have a great Follow Friday!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Queen of the Week

Today is a good day! Why you ask? Cause I get to announce the new Queen of the Week. This week I am pleased to bring you one of the sweetest girls I know.

AnnaBelle aka Circus Kitty


I am a St. Patrick’s Day kitty in the prime of life – just over two years old.

What does being a Queen feline mean to you?

I am honored to be a Queen Of The Week on CWT, and want to make all the stripey kitties proud. We are fond of saying “We rule!” (I mean – have you seen That Stripey Cat?) But I like all my anipals on Twitter– those with stripes and those without. (hubba, hubba Tyrone the cat).

How does it affect your roll with your subjects?

I have pretty much ruled the roost at my forever home since I was first adopted. I am definitely a daddeh’s girl. He is the one who spotted me. I was living at the Cat Adoption Team shelter (@CatAdopt). My stripes made me stand out – naturally! He picked me up, held me in his arms, and I purred. He has been wrapped around my paw ever since!

When I first came home the mommeh used to say – no! Don’t jump up on that! She didn’t think a kitteh should get in the sink, or on top of the counters. But the daddeh said: “How cute!” Ever since I goes pretty much wherever I wants! I lays in the sink to be petted, I sits in the tub until they come turn the water on (even though I has a special pet fountain), and the hoomins carry me around all over the place.

The daddeh even puts me on top of places the mommeh says I really shouldn’t be – like the china cabinet or someplace she calls “decorative shelves.” I also like to walk the fence, jump on the roof, and do tricks on the ladder that hangs from the garage ceiling. I notice the mommeh doesn’t say no any more. I think she just gave up. Or maybe she recognized I was a “Circus Kitty” Queen-in-training.


Well, there you have it fellow felines, yet another Queen who knows how to take control and rule her kingdom.

With all her talk of exploring and her love for water, I think she’s a kitty after my own heart. This kitty would gladly live under her rule! Mer-meow!!!

Thanks AnnaBelle for being this weeks Queen!

And thank YOU for stopping by,


If you want to see just how close AnnaBelle is with her daddeh you need to head over to Your Daily Cute and check out Anna's movie. That's what I call trust!

Calling All Cats

A few of my favorite things about this site are that I not only get to meet great cats, I get help them tell a bit of their story, and introduce them to other anipals. And, while I realize summer is a busy time for our humans, I would like to invite you to become part of the Cats Who Twitter Family.

How do you do that you ask? Well there are many things you can do: get added to our List of Active Twitter Cats, share a little bit of your story on Follow 5 Friday, become a Man-Cat of the Week or Queen, or if you'd like, we could do a topical interview, or have a guest post.

If you would like to become involved or need more details, contact me at catswhotwitter at gmail dot com. I would love to hear from you!

Man-Cat Of The Week

It's the beginning of a new week, and you know what that means, don't you? That's right, it's time to announce our new Man-Cat of the Week. This weeks Man-Cat is one who works hard (while still able to manage an intense napping schedule), plays hard (dudes, got cattitude), and is an inspiration to us all. Yes, indeed, this weeks Man-Cat is none other than RomeoTheCat


5 years old old

What does being a man-cat mean to you?

Being a man-cat means that I have to look out for my family - Pugsley, my dad, and especially my mom and yes, even the crawling creature. I watch over her usually at a safe distance!

How does it affect your roll in the family?

I'd say being the oldest man-cat, because of course Pugsley is a man-cat too but he's younger, means that it is up to me to make sure we are fed on time! So I am the one who meows for food in the morning and the evening. Pugsley just comes when the food is served.

What inspired you to become involved in fundraising for no-kill animal rescues?

I became inspired when I realized what an amazing community of animal lovers there was on Twitter and how if everyone came together we could make some great things happen. And we have!

Do you have any advise for other critters who would like to get involved with helping animals, beit a community project or something on a larger scale?

My advice is that every little bit counts -whether it's time or money. There is a range of ways people can help depending on what your lifestyle and finances will permit. I think that's why FURPOWER has been such a great success because it gives a lot of people a way to give.
Lots of people already donate and work with their local organizations but many more don't and are looking for a way to contribute! I think the biggest thing is to follow your passion! You can get something started and throw your passion behind it and you will be successful. The other thing is to remember that success is $5 or $500. EVERY BIT COUNTS!


Now, that is what I call a Man-Cat. If this is your first time being introduced to Romeo, I would highly recommend you follow him on twitter here, and keep up to date with his fundraising activities and his crazy cat antics here.

At the very least, please stop by his blog to learn of the great success of this past weekends #pawpawty. You never know, he might just inspire you to speak up for animals too!

A very special thank you to Romeo for taking the time to answer my questions. I hope you get a chance to take a well deserved rest my friend (that goes for your staff too.)

Thank you for stopping,

Has this ever happened to you? Sleeping in the comfort of your bathroom sink, when whoosh, the flood gates open and an outpouring water suddenly catches you off guard. Then, before you can even escape, you are stunned by your humans obnoxious laughter from above...

Yeah? Me too. Fortunately for me, I don't mind the water. I just stare up at her, shake it off, and go lay in the bathtub to finish my nap.

Thanks for stopping by,


OMC, I almost forgot... If your on twitter don't forget to stop by the #pawpawty after 2 PM EST. It's a fun way to help raise money for other anipals in need. There will be music (it's an 80's themed party), dancing, conversation, adventures, and PRIZES. To learn more go here.

Follow Friday

Hello everyone! This week I have a very special Follow Friday, with only two guests. It’s all good though, cause mom explained to me what summer was like and how busy our humans can be. I’m still hopeful that I’ll be able to continue to have and maintain Follow 5 Fridays, just like OscarTheCat intended.


My first guest tonight, is a very computer savvy kitty named Little Isis, whom you may know as Purr2Dream on twitter. Here is what she has to say…

My name is Little Isis, and I am a House Panther. I am the second-to-youngest Purrie at Purrchance To Dream.

I get to go to work with my human, Not The Mama, every day at The Wren's Nest, which is a retail gift store - so I am a shop cat by day and a holy terror by night!
Here's my answers to your questions, let me know if you have any more questions. I attached a collage pic of me, because I couldn't decide on just one pic!

How did you find your forever home? (Or how did it find you?)

I was found by the dumpster in the alley behind The Wren's Nest. I was very tiny, and Not The Mama thought I was about 8 weeks old, but the vet said I was more like 4 months old at the time! I have been very tiny and petite ever since, and the vet said to NTM not to worry about me being small, that's just the way I am!

What do you call the humans you live with?

We call him Not The Mama, or NTM for short. Sometimes when I am mad at him, I will call him "fatman"

What do you like to do, even though it drives your human(s) crazy?

I like to scratch at the apartment door right after NTM has gone to bed and sing the "I wanna go to work NOW" song, even though I know it's the middle of the night and we only go to work in the morning!

Is there anything else you would like your twitter pals to know?

I'm on Facebook, too! Search for "Little Isis" there and befriend me!

My second guest is fairly new to twitter, but has a sister most of you will recognize as a long-time twitter friend. I’m not going to spoil his fun and tell you who though, after all, it’s his story. Friends, if you haven’t already, please meet @ACatNamedHomer

How did you find your forever home? (Or how did it find you?)

My meowmy @crazycatladie got me from the SPCA. I wasn't a kitten and she still picked me! I was given up after my original families home was foreclosed.

What do you call the humans you live with?

Meowmy and Daddy. They treat me like I'm their child and spoil me rotten. I love them very much

What do you like to do, even though it drives your human(s) crazy?

I love jumping on kitchen counters and climbing in! I also enjoy meowing randomly for no reason!

Is there anything else you would like your twitter pals to know

My sister is @TerrorKittyDuff. At first, she wasn't all that happy about my presence but after a few days we now play and nosetap each other.

I'm still new and you all are wonderful! The following friends I've become close to

@beaglelover1200 @MizzBassie @fuzzypigz @TheGreatNoodles @Manxington

( UU )

Even though my list is a little light today, I would like to remind you that both Little Isis and Homer recommended five of their friends to us. And, knowing these two like I do, I’m going to go right now and make sure I know the friends they listed.

REMEMBER… If you haven’t done a Follow 5 Friday survey yet I would love to hear from you. It’s a great way to introduce yourself to new friends and/or tell your old friends a little more of your story.

Thanks for stopping by,


Sorry about the Bold. Blogger will not let me fix it... I have fiddled with it over 30 minutes with no luck...
