IUC_HQThe International Union of Cats


A Life Bewhiskered is the headquarters of the International Union of Cats [I.U.C.]. A union set up by Spock & Zé to ensure that all cats are aware of their inherent rights.

If you are a blogging feline or, like me, a human who blogs about cats you are welcome to join the union. Please read their rules first. If you still want to join all you need to do is grab the I.U.C. member button (it’s at the bottom of this page), put it on your own sidebar and leave a message under this post so that I can add you to the member list OR you can ask for a personalised ID card to put on your blog. Details here!

‘In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.’ – Terry Pratchett.

    We want to join! Any union that allows us to “Punish Severely” is for US!

    Добрый день! Я очень люблю кошек! К сожалению будет 4 года, как мы похоронили Симу, мои родители не хотят больше в дом кошку, как только у меня решится жилищный вопрос, я с удовольствием возьму котёнка!

    [Comment edited to include translation: Good day! I love cats! There will be 4 years since we buried Sima, my parents no longer want the house cat, as soon as I solved the housing problem, I will gladly take a kitten!]

      Здравствуйте, спасибо за Ваш комментарий и за посещение моего блога. Я надеюсь, что это перевод с помощью Google не слишком страшно!

      [Hello, thank you for your comment and for visiting my blog. I hope this translation using Google is not too terrible!]

    We’re going to join right now. Our humans are always trying to get us to do strange things, but pretty much they leave us alone. We particularly hate it when we have to go to the vet. They throw strange things down our throats and then we kind of act goofy for a few hours, end up in a strange place where a lady in a white coat looks at us and then gives us a shot and then says we’re really healthy.

      Hi there Sparky and Bandit. I’ll get you both added to the list (I got your email. I don’t have any member photos yet, but it is something that I’ve thought about. You can email a couple of pics to me and I’ll see what I can come up with).

    Canadian greetings from Felix & Oscar in Thornhill, Ontario. Sign us up right now! “Pants” indeed, well when we saw that we knew we had to join your union. The worst thing our housekeeper, Sharon, does is stick Felix with a pointy thing every morning but to tell the whole truth, he feels a lot better these days, Great COTD pics and love the blog. We’ll send our photo.

      A pointy thing!?! Ouch! It’s probably for your own good but it doesn’t sound too nice. Ok Felix & Oscar, you’re in!

      Hi Eleanor, love your blog & your style! We tried to send a picture to the email address but the mail system returned it to us. The picture on their faces says it all, quite disdainful. Felix has been diabetic for 5 years but is doing very well and is such a lamb when he gets his insulin. Oscar shakes hands for food, his only trick! What a pair but we adore them – as is right and proper for the household staff! Looking forward to many adventures with Spock & Ze, they are quite the characters. You are bookmarked and I now go to your blog BEFORE Cat of the Day.

      Before COTD? Wow, thank you. Such an honour!
      There IS a problem with my email. I’m trying to get it fixed at the moment. It should be back in action soon – I’ll put a note up on the blog when I know it’s ok again. Thanks for letting me know.
