THE MOGGY HORDE
"Moggy" is a good old Scottish slang word for "cat", supposedly derived from "mongrel". As you can see, my Horde is a mixed bag of types. One of the things I love about cats is that each one is a unique individual. To learn more about my moggies, click on the thumbnail photos below.

And yet more cat stuff...
cat face TALES OF
THE MOGGY HORDE

When novelist Jo Clayton's two cats, Owl and Tigerlily, were sent to me for adoption, I began making regular cat reports on the Genie BBS, so Jo would know how her cats were doing. I expanded that into general cat reports that I called TALES OF THE MOGGY HORDE. This proved to be quite popular, so I decided to archive them and post them to my web site.

If you're a die-hard moggophile, check it out:
cat face From 26 Sept. 2002 onwards, the Tales are found on the Moggyblog, a running commentary on being the body slave to a horde of cats, with occasional photos and a wide range of topics such as the world's best cat litter and pondering the wisdom of pet insurance.
