Last Cat On Mars Presents: Your Mobile Psycatrist #5 – Wayfarers and Their Funny Little Ways

It’s true that it’s quite difficult to get lost on Mars. After all, Mars is only a bit more than half the size of Earth, there are no oceans to sail, and its mass (whatever that is, hahahahah) is almost 10 times less than Earth’s’s’s’s (and made of tuna – no, really!!). Getting around is a much lighter affair on Mars, too, and we all make merry lollygagging around leaping to and fro, and so on, and etcetera – you know the krill, sorry, drill.

Last Cat On Mars Presents: The FUBER (Feline Unique Bike Energy Rides) Affair

If only there was a Le Meow Sushi Bar here on Mars. We are lobbying as I write, but the vagaries of Martian retail business tend to elude me. Also, I have my sushi flown in from the Lynx constellation, though it pays to order early.

Last Cat On Mars Presents: Your Mobile Psycatrist #4 – Centaurs are People, Too, Half the Time

While 9 out of 10 cats prefer to stay out of the way when centaurs are stomping around (innocent tails and all that), the other 14 have no issues with them at all. In fact, felines and centaurs tend to group together to gossip about the latest social media mythological trends over lattes and ceviche at every opportunity. Prove me wrong, go on.

Last Cat On Mars Presents: Size is in the Aye of the Beholder

Yes, friends, you’ve guessed that I have a soft spot for the game of Chess, though I do not play it very well, or at all, really. I have issues with strategic planning involving war-like games, but that by no means diminishes the tomfoolery and malarkey one can enjoy with happy japes about the various representations of pieces and their predilections. Jeez, that was exhausting, I’m off to play a round of draughts/checkers with the nearest nerdy Martian.

Last Cat On Mars Presents: A Lazy Sunday in Egypt and Yorkshire

Sitting here on Mars on a lazy Sunday afternoon, I thought of a few things, and, well, here you go lovers of Ancient Egypt and Barbara Hepworth. Also tuna.

Last Cat On Mars Presents: Your Mobile Psycatrist #3 – You Need Special Specs to see this Spectre

Whether you see them or not, they may be there. Whether you believe or not, it doesn’t matter. Simply be kind if you see one, or more, and offer them a cuppa – they may have come a long way to visit with you and a hot beverage is always appreciated, even by the coolest of spectral dudes.A ghost on Dr On Mars couch lamenting that he feels invisible to people

Last Cat On Mars Presents: Your Mobile Psycatrist #2 – Bumbling Bees

Did you know that the humble bumbling bee is a threatened species? Well, it is. Read this very interesting article from the Climate Institute about the 20,000 or so bee species on Earth and tell me it isn’t important that we care for Mzzzzz Janice Flybeewaxy’s mental health? You can’t, can you? No, you can’t. Climate change, peeps, it’s a thing.
