This lighter is the cat’s meow.
3D cats in space, is anything more interesting?
Sunbeam traipsing through the meadow. He has always loved botany.
I met Mordecai on a fishing vessel that sailed the Baltic Sea. The vessel was named Roldolfo. It’s crew was most savage. Until they met sweet Mordecai that is. He captured the hearts of the entire crew with his crazy antics. As they were fishing he would lick their boots until they would feed him a fish. Once he tasted the morsel his thirst for fresh fleshy fish could never be quenched. He ate...
Algebra looks both ways before crossing the street.
I was walking around my neighborhood one evening last week when I spied a fledgling delinquent scrawling something on the wall of my local grocery. I had my cell phone at the ready and was about to report the hooligan when i caught a glimpse of what he was painting. Well done sir. Well done.
Reginald fights depression the only way he knows how, doughnuts.
This is a sketch I found in a drawer from my dear friend Jacques Bastien. Jacques and I sought passage from France to New York on the illustrious ocean liner Normandie. Jacques and I smuggled a couple of kittens aboard. The kittens required more milk than we anticipated and the ships crew started to get suspicious. Jacques devised a plan to get more milk using extra long straws. We connected...
Sunbeam and I love to play fort. I often put progressively smaller boxes for Sunbeam to nap in. Eventually the box will be about half his size but he still tries to sleep in it. As a reward I always get a refrigerator sized box for him to sleep in for a week or two. I’ve been working on a thesis about why cats love to play in boxes but it is not quite ready for publishing. Dr. Prichart...
Good old Quincey. Quincey just loves playing with dart guns. Both Quincey and I are quite content as long as we have a Nerf gun nearby. I try to get the darts past Quincey and onto the chair which proves to be nearly impossible. The dart’s velocity is no match for Quincey’s quick eyes and lightning fast reflexes. After nearly 3 hours of shooting darts I only managed to get one dart...
Science! We now know how cats drink. This is truly amazing.

Cats in outer space, is there anything more fascinating?

I pass Jupiter nearly every evening on my walk. He used to join me in my walking adventures. He would follow me from his house all the way to the river. Until one day he was nearly kidnapped by a few hooligans. He was just ahead of me along the path by the river when five teenage boys jumped out of the bushes. Jupiter has always been afraid of strangers but these boys frightened him more than...
Eating treats and taking a stroll. Reginald has not given up his quest to become a mailcat, he still has bills to pay though. If you know anyone who needs a cat model let me know. Reginald can do it all.
Quincey taking it easy
Neighbor cats sometimes do not get along. I witnessed these two cats hissing and arching their backs at each other. Luckily they never fought. Had it come to that I was quite prepared to stop a fight at all costs. Many people do not know how dangerous breaking up a cat fight can be. At the hospital I have seen quite a few people come into the emergency room having tried to break up a cat fight....
Wine of the week. Enjoy! Dr. Prichart Garbow
As a middle schooler I struggled with math. In particular algebra. I’m not sure why but algebra was one of the most difficult classes in my whole schooling career. As the third quarter came to a close I had a 66 average. My parents made a deal with me. If I made a D or better they would get me a new cat. I begged my teacher for extra credit and explained what was to be...
Quincey loves the outdoors but prefers to spend most of her time in the basement. She loves the damp dark ground. It is perfect for her favorite activity, digging tunnels. Burrowing keeps Quincey comfortable. In the summer her tunnels are cool retreats from the scorching sun. In the winter they are an escape from the icy wintry winds. However, comfort is not the primary reason Quincey loves...
If you have ever had a missing cat you know exactly how this poor family must feel. The reward is a nice touch but the poster could be better. Maybe something like this? Perhaps the cat has moved on to a better place. Someplace like this? If you have a chance please look for this cat. Dr. Prichart Garbow
Just a local cat hanging out. His name is Czar. Enjoy. Dr. Prichart Garbow
Fenêtre never leaves her window. She longs to live in the world outside of her house but her owners will not let her go outside. I talked to them about the dangers that face a cat who lives on a window sill. They were very friendly but said Fenêtre will never leave their home. They believe he may be negatively influenced by other street cats. Their worst fear is that she may start taking drugs....
Cute little Quincey sitting in a tree H-I-S-S-I-N-G
Reginald is a cat who loves the postal service. He has dreamed of being a postal employee for quite some time now. There is only one problem. Postmaster General John E. Potter does not like cats. He used to like cats. That is until he had a walking route in western Indiana. Western Indiana has some of the most rowdy stray cats known to man. Mr. Potter has based his hate on a few unruly...
I met a new friend at the park. She was rummaging through a pile of scrolls when I came upon her. I took her out for some milk and she drank nearly an entire gallon! I love a cat that can drink a lot of milk. I wish that I could keep her but she seems to have a problem. I have had her at my house for nearly a week and she has not had a bowel movement. That is a deal breaker for me so I...
I met Bjorn while working abroad last winter. Every morning he had the same routine. He would walk through the local shooting range just for kicks. Then he would find some children. He would look as cute as possible drawing the children closer. When they were close enough he would jump and try and jump from head to head. The most heads I ever witnessed him jump on in one attempt was 7....
Everyone who travels with their cat should own one of these. As a cat falls it first turns its head to an upright position and then the body follows so that it is in position for a four-point landing. However, if a cat is deeply asleep on a window ledge and rolls off without waking, it may be too late to bring the righting mechanism into operation and the cat may be injured. It is...
Sanqeuah the warrior would have been 16 years old today. She was one of the best cats I have ever owned. Sanqeuah I miss you. -Dr. Prichart Garbow
Schnitzeldoodle is the cat that is in both pictures. The other cat is known as Linky Ba Ba. These are cats I had in 1980. I took a vacation to Austria and i found Schnitzeldoodle all alone in an alley. She was there all month and I could tell she didn’t have an owner. I never thought it would work but I dressed her up and passed her off as my baby on the flight home. Soon after...
Colonel Percy Boomer joined the army at the ripe age of 1. He killed many dogs in the great war of Smyrna. He was such a natural killer he was promoted to Colonel his second day in the army. He was an integral part of the battle of Countryside Place. His entire platoon deserted him. He was not daunted by the fact that he was the only cat fighting against over 200 canines. He clawed, bit, and...
