Oscar or "Chook" or "the Brat"

by Peta
(Adare, Queensland, Australia)

When I bought Oscar 16 years ago, he typed 666 on the computer - I should have known then. At chose him because I needed a companion and that is what he has been ever since. He makes me feel good and there is nothing I wouldn't do for him - he is my baby. I love his personality, his affection and of course his devilish side. They say Korats bring luck. I believe this is true - I'm lucky to have him in my life. When that dreaded time comes - I will be devastated. However, Korats are me and when the time is right, I will not just be getting one korat - next time I will be getting two.

I so know what you mean... A beloved cat really is a blessing to our lives. Even at 5 AM, when they decide that ok, enough sleeping, lets eat. Now. LOL :D

I also had three cats that lived quite long - one moggie and one Aby who made it for 16 years, and another Aby, Bertha, who lived to be almost 18...

When they crossed the Rainbow Bridge (and both me and my husband were there with them to help them cross it), it was six months and we had another trio - two Abys and one Somali (Rolli, who's diary you can read on the website).

I have seen both one-cat-families and homes with several cats, and I have to say the decision to take two cats is a good one. They really do enjoy company and are social creatures. And when you laugh with tears in your eyes at how they chase and play peek-a-boo with each other like only cats can, you realize there are some things only a cat can give to another cat.

I wish Oscar and you many more years together!

This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibition on his world tour of ten cities from March 2018 onwards

Tutankhamun: In My Own Hieroglyphs tells the story, for older children, of the life and afterlife of the famous young pharaoh in his own words. Tutankhamun tells us about the trouble he got into as a child in Akhenaten's palace in the new city of Akhetaten, and how he became a boy pharaoh. As we learn, his life changed a lot when he died as a teenager, and long years of boredom started in his tomb with only his pet monkey Fingers and his treasure for company. He did meet some of the Egyptian gods, of course, and had fun scaring off tomb robbers, but it was mostly rather dull. Then one day, some new and strange people, including a Mr. Howard Carter, arrived and began to take all the treasures out of his royal tomb. Fortunately, through the eyes of his beautiful golden mask, Tutankhamun, could have fun again traveling around the world

Mr Mummific

An ancient friend of mine, Mr Mummific dictated a book about how he became a mummy - and I was his scribe and artist. The book is available at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

On my other website www.ancientagypt101.com he continues his stories about life in ancient Egypt.

Another hilarious adventure for children with Mr Mummific, the mummy with attitude. He now tells the story of his mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures as he leaves his tomb through the False Door to embark on the complicated and dangerous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions. 

Find the book at Amazon.com  and Amazon.co.uk
