The back-story that everyone wants to know about 

America's Favorite Advice Giving Cat!

The History of Ask Tazi!


Ask Tazi! started as a "clubhouse blog"; a writing assignment that required me to design the type of blog that would interest others and develop a regular following.  For my clubhouse blog, I chose to follow a silly little dream that I have had since Ann Landers passed away: I would write an advice column.  The only problem with this idea was my fear that nobody would write to me!  Just then, my cat – Tazi, who had been emphatically meowing for a treat – jumped up onto my laptop computer and started pawing at the keys.   I then realized that many people talk to their pets and, like me, wish their pets could answer them.  Inspiration struck!  I had found the public face to my advice column, and Ask Tazi! was born.  

The project was only supposed to run for a few weeks, but developed such a following that I continued to write and publish it.  Ask Tazi! ran new content six days a week, Monday - Saturday, with an opinion feature Tazi's Corner running on Sundays, through December 2014.

Sadly, Tazi-Kat passed away from congestive heart failure on August 28, 2019 at the age of 16 (that's 95 in human years). Click here to read his final goodbye.
