Catherine Coulter July 2017 Newsletter

July Newsletter Cats

Vol. 007 No. 007A

HAPPY MIDDLE OF SUMMER: Big, Gorgeous July, and I know you’re off lying on warm sand or visiting with your family or snow skiing in New Zealand. And what is yours truly doing throughout this big gorgeous July, you might wonder? Do you think yours truly is yodeling on top of the Alps, looking down at both Switzerland and Italy, and doesn’t that sound weird? Of maybe YT is off fishing in an incredibly cold crystal clear lake in Alberta?

Catherine Coulter June 2017 Newsletter

June 2017 calendar cats

Vol. 765 Number 567

It’s the middle of June and all through the house, I’m wrapping presents because it’s time for the yearly family reunion at the Outer Banks.  Those who have resisted in the past are now coming out with it -- I’m nuts.  And you’re saying, well, agreed, it’s not Christmas, the time of your yearly insanity, which can be rationalized. But this? Have you lost it completely? Sigh – yes.  But everyone in the family deserves at least one present plus flip flops for everyone and hats and beach bags and tops and shirts, not to mention all the kids’ goodies, I mean, I don’t want to be a present slacker.

Catherine Coulter May 2017 Newsletter

Catherine Coulter May 2017 Newsletter cats

Vol. 330 No. 444

Yes, I know the May newsletter is late, but I was walking in the rain for a week (Yes, England), visiting Aunt Harrods (shoes) and the British Library (research for the 5th BRIT in the FBI series), the cutest baby in the universe (parents good breeders), and trying to avoid stepping into water traps on the sidewalks of London at night.

Catherine Coulter April 2017 Newsletter

April newsletter cats

Vol. 660 No. 229

Goodness gracious, it’s TAX time. Are all of you chomping at the bit? Can’t wait to pay the Feds mo’ money, mo’ money? What to do? Bite the bullet, muchachos, keep that chin up and walk head high through that long dark tunnel. If you see a white light, you’re not dead, it means you’re almost through, safely intact, or nearly, for another year. And it’s best not to look back. Go get a margarita right now.

Catherine Coulter March 2017 Newsletter

March Newsletter Cats

Vol. 031 No. 500

Beware the Ides of March. I wondered for a long time what Ides meant, I mean, something like March eyes seeing something you did wrong? Okay, don’t beg, I’ll tell you. Ides is from the old Roman calendar, roughly the middle day of each month, all made famous by Julius Caesar and Shakespeare because it’s the actual day (March 15, 44 BC) Julius Caesar went (unwillingly) to the Great Beyond by the hand of his good bud Brutus, later of Pop Eye fame.

Catherine Coulter February 2017 Newsletter

February 2017 cats

Vol. 77 No. 11

Welcome to February – the ever-striving month that didn’t quite make it to the big leagues. Always short two days forever (except for that idiot 4th year rule). Where do the 29th and 30th go? Are the 29th and 30th too exhausted and need a month off? It’s just not right but I don’t know who to complain to….

January 2017 Newsletter

January 2017 newsletter

Vol. 110, No. 011

January:   The Once-A-Year Period of Resolution and Dissolution:

Do you know what I resolved to do in the new year? Sorry, not telling you, but know this: No dissolution yet. (I’m not talking about Henry VIII and the Pope.) We’ll see how long I can keep it up. How about you? Are you a firm resolutionist or just plain dissolute?

Christmas Newsletter 2016

Catherine Coulter Christmas Newsletter 2016 Cats

Vol. 333 No.110

'Twas not quite the night before Christmas  --  actually it’s least a week before The Day.  Of course you’ve already finished all your shopping, wrapped all your goodies with fun paper and fantastic ribbons and bows, and placed each present carefully under the tree, showing off their gloriousness.  And when there’s no more room, you will then place the remaining gifts in artistic displays next to the tree, maybe a spot light illuminating on your creation. Is there even a slim chance of all this happening before you’re reading "Twas the night before Christmas" to your kids, your grandkids, your other half?

Thanksgiving November 2016 Newsletter

Catherine Coulter November Newsletter Cats

Vol. 555 Number 220

If you heard about a thriller titled ENIGMA, what would you think the plot would be? If you were designing cover art, what would you picture as the perfect image or concept for a thriller titled ENIGMA? Note: this plot has nothing to do with cryptology or WW 11. There’s so much creativity out there – I am now formally tapping into it. Email me at with your best ideas. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

October Newsletter 2016

Catherine Coulter October Newsletter Cats

Vol. 119 Number 444

Happy October:

If you haven’t seen my Halloween videos, go to – they’re neat videos but I sound sort of dead, which fits, I guess, given all the skulls and ghosts and black cats around the house which my own kitters do not appreciate. Eli took one look at the very lifelike black cat on the sofa and went viral – got all stiff, hair sticking up straight, back arched to the ceiling, then coward that he is, he hissed and turned tail and ran. Peyton took one look, slinked out, and hid in his hidey-hole in the pillow room. (Video of this room some other day)
