The suitcase came out of the closet. I growled. I never like that. It means Papa is going somewhere. “Stravyn we are going to visit Grandmaw” Papa said.  “Picnics, car shows, farmers markets, boating.” Meow! So many appearances for me to make.  I better start to pack.  “Papa the cat rule is that if your standing on it it’s yours.  I’m standing on the suitcase Papa let’s fill it up with my toys and my other essential items like chicken flavored toothpaste….hmmm and more toys!”

I don’t think we will have enough room for anything of yours Papa! Meow! Hehe.

With my packing done we go to a place called an airport to ride in a plane. Airports are very big with so many people walking and running and also standing and waiting.  Humans are such funny creatures. We have to go through a place called Security! This is a very strange place.  Papa had to get in a line with others humans. “Meow hello” I say. The humans around me reply “is that a cat!” I answer back, “meow, I am a BFF-Beautiful Fierce Feline!” I forget humans can’t see as well as cats and I am in a small case. Papa now has to take me out of the case so we can walk through security.  “OMG look at that a cat.” I keep hearing.

Finally we board the plane.  A plane is like a big car with wings. A man with a hat is looking at me.  “Hi, I’m the pilot you sure are a beautiful cat is this your first flight?” He says. “Meow. No this is my 7th flight.  Is this your first flight?” I meow back. He turns and disappears into a small room with lots of lights and buttons.  I’d love to explore in there but papa says no. We go to our seats. “First class for you Stravyn.” papa says.

Lot’s of people are walking by my seat. Everybody looks tired and a little grumpy. Maybe because they need some naps?  I see a little boy and girl holding their mom and dads hands.  “Meow hello are you flying to see your Grandmaw?” I ask them. “Look mom a cat!” the girl yells. Her brother laughs. The grumpy looking people all start to smile. I hear. “What type of cat is that” “Can I take a picture of her?” “She is so pretty”.  Papa smiles at everyone. Humans look so much better when they smile.

What’s that movement outside the window? “Papa I can see my luggage. Where are they taking it? Meow. Those are my toys. Meow.

Ready to take off! Yay rumble! Let’s go faster papa! Zoom! Yay we are flying.

What’s this…a entertainment system! Let’s see movies types…drama, comedy, kids. “Papa where is the Tigress Stravyn channel?”

Hmmm what’s this. Safety instructions.  I better read this.

The rumble of the engines are putting me to sleep.  They are quieter than papa snoring. Just a little bit hehe!

While I rest I’ll watch all the shapes of the clouds fly by.

That cloud looks like a duck, no a chicken. No I’m just hungry.

Papa the movie is starting but I can’t hear it.  Everyone is wearing earphones.  Where are mine. Meow MEOW! “Stravyn cats don’t wear earphones.” Papa said.  Meow! Really papa?! Let me try please.” I ask papa.

Time for some lunch papa. Yuck no chicken!

With all the excitement I almost forgot to take a nap!

I’m trying but I can’t fall asleep.

Starting to land already.  This flight went by so fast.

Papa look I see a city.  We are going to land.  This is exciting papa!

Now to Grandmaws house. So sleepy. Maybe a short rest before I explore grandmaws house!

Tigress Stravyn® Has a Birthday Party

In the middle of the year it’s Hot where I live. Very, very hot most days. So during the day I can’t take my usual buggy rides and walks. As a Tigress Bengal cat I always like to go out and have adventures but during what my Human, that I call Papa, calls summer doldrums I can’t always go out and explore.

While walking indoors on my cat wheel I had a great idea. “Papa it’s my birthday soon so let’s have a party with my butterfly friend, my stuffed animals, and some special guests!” I meowed.

I told Papa to print up an invitation and I’ll read it to make sure it looks good and then we can text and email it out. And if I don’t like how it looks I’ll shred it for you.

Over the next day I helped Papa decorate. As we all know humans are not as good as animals when it comes to planning a party.  You never hear anyone say “party humans” it’s always “Party Animals!”

Papa I’ll hang this really high up. Let me just grab it first. “Get the tape ready.” I meowed.

I decided to take a little nap before the party but just before I fell asleep one of the guests arrived early. It’s was a baby giraffe and she climbed right on top of me. You know how those giraffes always act at a party. I guess the party was starting!

As I was telling my stuffed animal toys where to sit, Papa brought in one of my outside friends. “Hi Ms Monarch Butterfly are you here for my party?” I meowed happily, “And did you bring a gift for me?”

We have some party snacks for everyone before opening my gifts.   “Papa can we have more food bowls?” I asked, “because the giraffe and polar bear are drooling on my snacks. Yuck!”

I thought it was a good time to open my gifts. Mr. Squirrel gave me a dancing chipmunk. Squirrels always give gifts to do with chipmunks and chipmunks always give gifts to do with squirrels. I don’t know why. They are both nutty creatures I think.


Next I got a ball that lights up when you bounce it.   “Papa look it’s flashing many different colors.” I meowed. Well I think it was my gift. Papa kept on bouncing it all around the house until I meowed for him to stop! Humans are so easily amused by flashy and bouncy things!

Suddenly there was a knock at the door. More surprise guests I thought. It turned out to be a delivery from my Grandmaw, Aunt and Uncle, and my 2 cousin cats!  I read the card over and over to Papa.

It’s to bad that my relatives live so far away I thought. And just then Papa said “Stravyn do you want to video conference Grandmaw, your aunt and uncle, and your cousins?”  I replied “Papa great idea!” And just when the video connected I heard everyone singing “Happy Birthday ” I couldn’t help but smile real big even though the singing hurt my ears a little. You would know what I mean if you have ever heard them all sing “Happy Birthday.”

“Papa show me the screen. I want to see what everyone is doing.” I meowed. Wow look at what everyone was eating.

We had cake also but when I looked at it I saw most of it missing. What had happened to it.  I had to question my guests.

“Which one of you ate the 3 pieces of cake!” I meowed.   The squirrel, who was shaking, said “I saw your Papa eat them all!”


Papa said its time to say goodnight to everyone.  As I was saying goodnight I noticed something. I meowed, “Papa I didn’t get a gift from everyone.”

“It’s ok” I meowed to Papa.  I have so many toys that I can share.   It was time to go rest. Some guests don’t leave but they do make good pillows!!
