Ozzie the Media Cat


Thursday I did something cool and fun. A new website called www.romancenovels.tv is launching on February 14. They came to my house to do an interview with me.

But Ozzie, one of my cats, decided that they’d come to do an interview with HER. She was a pregnant rescued cat who was fostered by a woman who called her Princess Ozma. I adopted her and one of her kittens and wanted names to go with Princess Ozma. The best idea I could come up with was Ozzie and Harriet (whom I call Harry). Harry’s the quintessential scaredy cat who hides when the doorbell rings.

Ozzie loves people, and she wants to be right there in your face. So while the crew was trying to interview me, she was clawing at my leg and pawing at their equipment. Then she showed off for them by frantically chasing a flashlight beam on the rug. (I hope that footage makes it into the interview.) And finally, when she couldn’t get their attention any other way, she threw up in the front hall. Since I was about to be on camera, my husband had to clean up the mess. Lucky for me. Usually I’m the one who has to deal with the messes.

I’m really excited about romancenovels.tv. Thursday, they did Mary Jo Putney in the morning. Then came to my house in the afternoon. I did one segment in the kitchen, where I demonstrated a Chili Con Queso recipe that I’d designed exclusively for them. We also did some shooting outside, with my husband and me walking down to the stream valley that’s near our house.

Hairballs? Ugh! Haven't had to deal with those lately. But cats definitely know how to garner their fair share of the attention! Love that "aristocatic" gaze in your photo!

Do you know how soon the interview will be posted? I have to see that!

Sounds about par for the course for life with cats. (We have six, so I truly do understand.) I'll look forward to the interview.

Hey Rebecca!

That's so cute (and so's the cat). We have four and know all about those attention getting ploys that always work so well. Hope the interview went really well and that you had fun. :)

BWAHAHAHAHAA sorry that made me laugh hysterically because i have a cat who does this exact same thing if we don't give her enough attention when guests are over.

With a cat as beautiful as Ozzie she deserves her own show. Something along the lines of Days of our 9 lives soap operas or perhaps, with Cat Nap theatre.I'm excited for you as well. When is the interview going to be available?

Rebecca York said...

They did ten or twelve interview segments. I think the first ones they show will air on Valentines Day.

Yes, Ozzie is beautiful. And often very bad.

Make sure you post when you find out the date your interview is on. :D Can't wait to see it!
