Tweeting cats

As you may have read before, Dejal products are tweeting — posting updates via Twitter.

I also post a mix of Dejal news and personal events on my Twitter account, @dejal, though I don't tend to be overly chatty. My life isn't all that interesting, I guess. I do recommend that anyone interested in hearing about Dejal updates or me should follow that account, though.

But I was going to write about cats. We have three cats. The oldest is Pixel, a 9-year-old orange tabby, star of the Caboodle icon. He's a crotchety old man, so doesn't have much to say.

The younger two are littermates, Padmé and Pippin, both almost two years old.

Padmé is a royal princess, a petite dilute tortie. She is on Twitter as Princess Padme (@princess_padme), and posts about once a day, always in haiku. For example, one from a few days ago:

Her brother Pippin is also on Twitter. He's not the brightest bulb; when we first met him at the cat shelter, he was stepping in his water dish, looking at his paw in a confused way (how did it get wet?), then repeating. He's a funny guy, who loves to jump and play. He's on Twitter as Pippin the meeper (@leapybobeepy), though doesn't post all that often.

There are actually a lot of cats on Twitter, including really popular ones like @sockington. So we felt it'd be fun to encourage our youngest two to join in too. Follow them for the occasional dose of humor from the cat perspective.
