What is “The Purring Quest”? Read this description from the Valhalla Cats website:

“Have you ever wanted to be a cat?, you will be able, thanks to the aventure platformer The Purring Quest. Take on the role of Kimchi the cat and meet famous cats of the internet in a journey full of humor. Enjoy the detailed hand drawn graphics and the smooth animations made by a veteran traditional animator with experience in major studies like Disney and Warner.

A percentage of the profits will go directly to various animal welfare associations. So in addition to enjoying the game, you are contributing to a good cause.”

And, of course, I am one of the internet cats that Kimchi the cat meets on his quest.

by Nora The Piano Cat on October 3, 2015

Sophia & Fonda have an audience with the diva.Two or three years ago, I had the privilege of meeting mother/daughter fans from Harrisburg, PA. Their names are Sophia and Fonda. We had such a wonderful visit. So, they decided they wanted a second audience with the diva. And, of course, I was happy to oblige. Despite my reputation for being a bit nippy at times, and not always in the mood to play the piano, I really do appreciate the desire of others to spend time in my presence. And while the second visit was a tad more low-key than the first (I really didn’t play much), I do believe we all had a pleasant time. I even honored Fonda with a paw.
