Hello and a belated Happy Mew Year to all of my friends. I hope 2015 is being good to you so far. It has been for me. January is a month of celebrations at my house. I had my birthday on the 18th, and went for a car ride with Dori to DQ for ice cream. I also got two fish bowls and will get my Betta fishes this weekend. Dori and her dad, Nikolas, celebrated their 2 year gotcha day on the 23rd, and Opie celebrates his 7 year gotcha today, the 28th.
I guess you're wondering why I have stopped blogging. Well, writing my book, FINDING MYA, took a lot of extra creative work, and left me with no time for much else. And then Chrispmouse came, and I drove up to Michigan with my pawrents to hang out at Grammy's house. And when we returned home, we went right back to work. This time we are working on a brand new website.
We hired the wonderpurr Janeson Keeley from JTKweb to design a professional website, and as soon as Mom finishes writing content, Miz Janeson will put the final touches on it, and then we will have a launch pawty.
You won't have any trouble finding the new website. My domain, www.wonderpurr.com, will be redirected to my mom's domain, www.kimberleykoz.com. So it doesn't matter which domain you use, you will find me.
I'm super excited about the new website. Me and Mom are pawfessional storytellers, and that's what our website will be focused on. Telling stories. Funny stories that will hopefully entertain and make you laugh out loud.
Don't worry. All the Intermews from our old blogs will still be available for you to enjoy. We all worked real hard on them, and I know some of you still share your intermew with friends.
We will also continue to review pet products, but with a novel twist that has our contact at Chewy.com and the editor of Catification, the book written by Jackson Galaxy and Kate Benjamin, super excited. Sorry, no hints. You'll just have to stop by and see what that novel twist is.
Now don't pout. I can tell you about a few of the new features. Like...
TattleCat Chat - I have an opinion on everything, and this will be my column where I can talk about world events, traveling with my parents, my purrsonal appearances at Blogpaws and book signings. Plus I will probably do some gossiping about what goes on at my house. I'm not called Tattle Cat for nothing.
Cooking Wif Gidget -- @ChefGidget returns with recipes from the secret cookbook Mom used when she was a Florida restaurateur.
Ask the Cat Magnet - And speaking of my mom, Kimberley Koz... She's rescued 70+ stray cats in her lifetime, and has become the go-to-purrson on cat advice for friends, family, and complete strangers who mysteriously get her phone number. She can speak on a wide range of topics from behavior (both good and bad), feline quirks (why we do weird stuff), and how to rescue a stray with trust issues, especially if they're feral. She won't advise on health problems, however, so please consult a professional. You can click here to send your question. Please put Ask the Cat Magnet in the subject header.
Ask the Cat Magnet column is for hoomons only. If you are an angst-ridden fur-kid, you can direct your questions to...
Adorapurr Answers - Dori is such a copy cat. When she heard our mom is writing an advice column, she wanted to write one too. I'm skeptical about how she can give advice when she's only two. But if you have a problem and are willing to risk advice from a kid, then click here . Please put Adorapurr Answers in the subject header. And don't blame me if she ruins your life.
The rest of the Wonderpurr Gang -- Peaches, Chauncie Marie, Jack, Opie, Nikolas, Jesse and Frank -- will add their ex-purr-tise throughout the coming year, so stay tuned.
There will also be three really super great features on our new website, and I've kept these for last.
Sherlock Herms - I'm a fan of classic movies like The Maltese Falcon, The Thin Man, The Hound of Baskervilles, and The Spy Who Shagged Me. So I've opened a detective agency, and you can read my adventures in a monthly series that will debut when our website launches.
Club Wonderpurr - It's fabulous to belong to an elite club, isn't it? Especially one without mempurrship fees. When you add your email to our mailing list, you will receive a seasonal (4-per-year) mewsletter with me, Herman, as the Edipurr. You will also be sent a secret password that will allow you to enter Club Wonderpurr, a special place on our website where you will find lots of fun stuff that only club members have access to. Things like contests with great giveaways, excerpts from upcoming novels and the photos that inspired Mom to write them. Plus you will get a behind-the-scenes look at our Author Life, and stories with private photos of The Wonderpurr Gang.
And that's not all. You will also have access to The Whiner, mom's diary revealing her fish-out-of-water adventures in rural Kentucky, complete with a house known as The Money Pit and a private cemetery that was haunted. It's also where she nearly divorced dad, increased her cat collection, and had a riding mower commit suicide. She holds nothing back, including unknown details about how I blew into her life during a blizzard.
Hopefully you are now excited about our new website. When it's ready, I will yowl from the roof top so you won't miss the big launch pawty, complete with giveaways.
Until then... Have a Wonderpurr Day!
