5 days to visit the Taj Mahal

23 January, 2011

A huge THANK-YOU to the 45,000 viewers who’ve read and left comments on The Cat’s Whiskers blog.

The stats helper monkeys at mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

Crunchy numbers

About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 45,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.

The busiest day of the year was May 9th with 244 views. The most popular post that day was And so to bed ….

When I first started writing this blog, it was to share my experiences of being a first-time cat breeder – call it lessons from an imperfect teacher.  This was 4 years ago. 

Whenever I add a new post I wonder if anyone will read it, so I just want to say how chuffed I am by people’s support – your comments really help me go on. 

Please let me know if there are any topics that you would like addressed:  sometimes I assume that everyone knows everything about say, fleas, or assume that no one’s interested in, say, fleas.

 I’ve also made some great friends (many thanks to Sonya, Molly and Naomi!) and hope to make more friends in 2011, so keep those comments coming!

Best wishes,

The Cats Whiskers


Great Cat Breeder’s Blog – Mythicbells Persian Cats and Kittens

13 February, 2010

I’m so please to be able to tell you about a great cat breeder’s blog:  Mythicbells Persian Cats and Kittens, written by Molly Barr.

Molly breeds (as you’ve guessed!) Persians, and also feeds raw.   She’s not just a cat breeder, she’s also an artist.

So do check out her site for some great information about raw feeding, cat health, and photos of breathtakingly beautiful Persians!


Welcome to The Cat’s Whiskers!

Why “The Cat’s Whiskers?”

Oxford English Dictionary: cat’s whisker  • PHRASES “the cat’s whiskers” (also “the cat’s pyjamas”) – informal an excellent person or thing.

No doubt about it – cats are most excellent creatures.  I created The Cat’s Whiskers mainly to talk about my love for my cats and their well-being, and to share with you my current litter of Maine Coon kittens.

My approach to cat rearing is holistic – for me, the holistic way is the “cat’s whiskers”.  I’m hoping to reach out to people who may be interested in the same.

I decided to call this blog “The Cat’s Whiskers” because I’m hoping to get a cattery prefix with the same title. (The saga of getting a cattery prefix is something I’ll cover in another post!)

I’m a novice breeder so if you’re interested in what goes on in cat breeding, you’ll be learning as I learn too.

If you’re here because you’re interested in owning one of my beautiful kittens or just love Maine Coon cats, I hope that you’ll enjoy the photos and descriptions of the kittens as you watch them growing up.

I believe that buying a kitten is something to be taken seriously.  In this blog, you’ll get a feel of what the kittens and cats are like, and also what I’m like as a breeder, and what my methods of cat rearing are.  If you like what I do and think along the same lines, then do contact me!

I think this beats an ordinary web-site in terms of up-to-date news and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.


I currently have a litter of kittens available, ready for new homes 2nd week October 2006.

Mating is:  Mullycoonz Eowyn (Dam – tortie smoke) and Mullycoonz Romulas (Sire – Red Silver Shaded)
