I am The Cat by the way and if you like to laugh and have fun then this is the place for you!

It gives me great pleasure to say that this www - wickedly wonderful website of mine is really becoming a world that I can properly welcome you to. You may have noticed that my amazingly popular website has grown just a little and that is because now I have added my latest masterpiece of feline literature to it "The Cat's Travelogue."

If you let your mouse hover over the bit of the page above that looks more like a peeling bit of wallpaper and then click you will be whisked to a completely new section of my dual mode website and I know you are going to love it as much as you love the original. P.S. The mouse is the thing in your hand, if you are using a trackpad I admire you!

Here you can read a little from my wonderful book "The Cat's Travelogue," either using a sneak peek of the first 20 or so pages or indeed every day when we show first couple of paragraphs of a different excerpt from what has been described not only by me as 'a work of pure genius.'

Just look at the Reviews page for what people have been kind enough to say, without being forced or paid of course! People can be really nice sometimes or is it just my readers, and I bring out the best in them? Probably!

If you want to sample my wonderful book you can download the first 20 pages here or read on for today's Excerpt of The Day...

Italy - Beware Of Visions And Visionaries

Some years ago in one of the little villages somewhere outside of Milan there was a young girl who apparently had a visitation from a golden Angel and several other important personages from the kingdom of heaven, which is nice in a sort of extremely creepy way.

Every single one of this young girl's very important heavenly visitors told her that there was going to be a dreadful Earthquake and that the ground was going to open up and swallow all of the sinners who would then fall to purgatory and live in damnation until the end of time, or indeed beyond, you know just the normal damnation stuff! Not really a very forgiving thing to tell a young impressionable girl I know but heaven can obviously play hardball.

When they heard the tale the little girl's parents called the village Priest and asked him to confirm that she had had a holy vision and the Priest in turn called the village Doctor and together they talked for hours agreeing in the end that the best thing to do with the little girl was to lock her away, because the world was a complicated enough place without one more hysterical religious troublemaker.

That story sort of sums up Italy, it's a complicated place that is dangerous, odd, funny and of course pragmatic. Just before I tell you about Milan I would like to share something with you as we are currently in one of the most religious countries in the world.

You know I do believe that people's views on God and religion should emulate Victorian children in England and be 'seen and not heard' but what has happened is the opposite and both God and religion, and frankly it doesn't matter which 'all powerful' and 'unique' God or 'true' religion you're talking about here, are talked about all the time rather too loudly, in the news, media and worst of all on TV though rarely in church it would seem where the Church of England in particular is trying to keep quiet and not upset anyone while some members of the Muslim and Jewish religions are quietly plotting and will one day try to dominate the world with their beliefs.

Of course it goes without saying - almost - that God and religion should be kept off TV because the general public, bless them, will believe anything broadcast on TV!
