Hello, it’s Lucinda the literate cat with some big news. We make a move forward with this website by changing its name. From now on both the domain name and the website name will be “The Literate Cat.” My CCL (Cantankerous Cat Lady) has changed the domain name in my honor! Now everything is named after me.
This represents a strong decision, as it will clear up confusion among readers. Though everything has been posted to the domain name, Celebrating Cats, Google keeps listing posts as being from The Literate Cat.
That comes from the website name. Now, with the change, there will no longer be any confusion. It should be helpful.
As you may have noticed, CCL also changed the theme of the website. I like the new one– it seems cleaner and brighter. The added white space helps the look, I think.
More changes will come your way. If you journey to the website and see a notice that we are closed for renovation, don’t be surprised. CCL will redo the menu to make it a bit more understandable. She will put all my posts in one category, “the literate cat.” Of course, you’ll still have my book reviews and my “Letters to Lucinda” column.
That way, if you are looking for something I wrote, you will find it somewhere in those sections.
Stay tuned and watch for the changes. Who knows what the CCL may try next? She keeps surprising me.
Are you surprised too? We hope you enjoy the changes.
Now, your CCL has some words to add:
In a sense, this website contains an element of a “cat lovers science fiction” site. After all, Lucinda is not your normal cat.
Some of you will remember Lucinda’s first book reviews. At that time, she told us how she learned to read English. My last cat, Carlos, taught her about my Memory Library.
She learned that, when I go to sleep at night, she can enter my memory library and learn all the vocabulary words she wants from those stored there.
She learned that, if she passed her paws over words in a book, she could “read” the book. However, she does not actually read the words. She sees stories as images in her head.
In fact, at times these images are so vivid that they frighten her, and then she has to remember that they are not reality.
Then, after watching these images, she wrote her reviews. She learned from her vocabulary studies what words she needed, and she carefully typed them on the computer.
It is fortunate she has me here, because I can proof her writing and make any necessary changes.
Of course, we will continue to include posts about other cat topics in the other CATegories of this site: Kitty Health, Cat College, and Cat Tales. Also, if you want to find a cat-themed gift, check what is available in the gift category.
You can read the “About Me” page or you can enjoy the short biographical sketches about some of our talented Cat Writer’s Association members.
All these changes are designed to move this website forward, improving its function and look, as well as the visitor’s experience. The future of “The Literate Cat” looks bright, and Lucinda and I are happy with these changes. We hope you are, too.
