Zumba Cat

I have decided I want to be a zumba cat. Let me explain.

Now the other day I was lounging on my favorite spot of the house (a corner of a sofa where I can reach and grab passers-by with my paw in case they do not have the intelligence to stop and pet me) and watched Mommy packing her gym bag. She had just come through the door from the place she calls ”work”, had not forgotten to give us munchies (which is why I was lying all content on the sofa), and now was running around finding stuff to stuff into her bag. Mumbling something about trying to get to the gym in time for zumba.

Zumba? What on earth is zumba? If she is in such a hurry, it must be something to eat. No cat would ever rush anywhere with such stress unless it was about food.

What the heck is zumba? Is it something to eat?What the heck is zumba? Is it something to eat?

Now I strongly dislike the idea Mommy goes somewhere to eat without bringing us any treats back. But does she? Oh no - when ever she comes home from this ”zumba” you can see she has run like a nut, because she is all red (resembles a tomato on two legs, really), her hair all wet, and showing all the signs of serious physical exercise. But she does not carry treats for us cats. Clearly this zumba is something so delicious it is worth such extreme chase to catch it.  And so important people would want to eat it all without sharing.

And so again, Mommy went and came back two hours later, her belly all full of zumba, and fell asleep on the couch for eating so much.

I have to shake my head. Really, people, you should not be so selfish. We have chosen you as our staff, and you should remember your first and foremost priority is to take care of us. Pampering is part of the deal. You give us special treats, you pet us, and we reward you with purrs and affection and waking you up at five in the morning so you won’t waste your days sleeping.  

Mommy - from now own I expect to receive my share of zumba.

Leena's Books


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
