Ms. Fluffy Morgan, is the daughter of Sir Isaac Morgan, Catamondo’s Secatary of Cultural Affairs and Dame Miranda Morgan, renowned for her series of kitten-tales: Mouse Hunt. Shortly after Xander’s gallant defense of Ms Fluffy, Sir Isaac nominated Xander for Purrtector of their region and Xander and Fluffy’s friendship grew. Then, days prior to the election, when Xander was expected to win North America’s Continental Purrtector, he was abducted onto The Whispurring Winds.
Catamondo emotions were high! What would they do for a candidate? Petitions were submitted and several worthy (and a couple not so worthy) names were quickly added to the ballet.
The election ended up in a tie between Ms. Fluffy Morgan and Xander’s best buddy, Merlin, who some believed was a water-loving idiot and others categorized as ‘unworthy’…. Thus, emotions remained high until the Counsel decreed that Merlin, who lived on the West Coast would become North America’s West Coast Purrtector and Ms. Fluffy would be the North American East Coast Purrtector…. Sir Isaac was not pleased about this decision and hopes things change after the next election. Fluffy thinks Merlin in a moron, and claims that he only had a series of scientific cat humor published to try and make others think he was smart enough to understand the punchlines….
Fluffy and Xander remain friends and she frequently assists him with information and moral support. So does Merlin and Fluffy is very glad that a continent separates them.

During his youth, Xander “The Kamikaze” gained fame in Catamundo’s kickboxing tournaments. He came to the notice of Catamundo’s elite when he vanquished two Dobermans harassing a lovely Chocolate Persian. Instead of doing nothing, he leaped to the fair lady’s defense, shredding noses and clawing eyes until the owner turned on the hose, then carted his bleeding dogs to the vet. After they returned, the Dobermans showed all cats the respect they so richly deserved.
The lovely lady turned out to be Ms. Fluffy Morgan, daughter of Sir Isaac Morgan, Catamondo’s Secatary of Cultural Affairs and Dame Miranda Morgan, renowned for her series of novels, Mouse Hunt. Shortly after Xander’s gallant defense of Ms Fluffy, Sir Isaac nominated Xander for Purrtector of their region. By age 5, Xander organized techno-savvy cats and created the first Catamundo website. Which was a reowsing success with those who understood it. For the next two years, he organized and coordinated classes for techno-dunce cats, to learn to utilize modern technology. Xander had risen to US Southeaster District Purrtector and rumor had it that at the next election, he would become North America’s Continental Purrtector.
But mere days before the election, Xander’s family drugged him with catnip, popped his comatose body into a carrier, then they moved aboard sailing vessel, Whispurring Winds, a Gemini 105MC catamaran. His humans cast off the lines, then headed for the Caribbean… Catamondo’s Council held an impromptu emergency session where they created a new office: Purrtector of the Seven Seas and immediately voted – unanimously – for Xander to be the first Sea Purrtector. Thus The Kamikaze organized his new position utilizing all the advanced technology available aboard: single side-band radio; satellite phones, marine radio and of course, the Internet, which he’d become skilled at.
In his official capacity, Kamikaze Xander assists cats whatever he advises his humans to anchor. You can find him in your favorite bookstore OR you can read the first chapter of his first book, The Red Claw OR visit my website for news about all books.

For days, I kept two unrelated jpgs and while I thought they were worth sharing, I didn’t think they were quite interesting enough to share on their own. I mean, who wouldn’t love to have a pillow stenciled with ‘Home is Where the (paw) is’ and who doesn’t thing the relationship between Terfel and the stray cat is wonderful? But they seem a bit anemic for a post, right?
THEN, I discovered these photos depicting the friendship between Oliver and Arashi and realized all three had the ‘Awwww’ Factor. Plus, the relationship between the cats and dogs is what I’m trying to achieve in my Sea Purrtector Series, though there is a lot of resistance from both Catamondo and Dogdom. Still, I dare to hope they will learn to appreciate their differences.
