Kitty Literate Writes PURRsonal Blog for Innovative Cat Dating and Friendship Website, PURRsonals.com

LONG ISLAND, NY--(Marketwire - February 12, 2008) -

Allia Zobel Nolan (also known as KittyLiterate),

author of PURR MORE, HISS LESS; 101 REASONS WHY A CAT IS BETTER THAN A MAN: 202 REASONS WHY A CAT IS BETTER THAN A MAN, WHY CATS MAKE GREAT KIDS, EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT THE RAT RACE I LEARNED

FROM MY CAT among other titles, is pouncing on a new role as cat blogger for the Innovative dating, friendship, and social networking website, PURRsonals.com. While Zobel Nolan herself found a cat-loving mate years ago, she admits finding someone who is as bonkers over cats (or at least tolerant of your being bonkers over cats), is not easy. "Many people have a dislike or aversion to cats," says Zobel Nolan. "And it really helps to know that upfront before you get involved."



But lest you think PURRsonals.com is strictly for those looking for love, banish the thought. Clearly, the new website is committed to helping singles find the purr-fect mate, but it also invites ALL cat lovers, regardless of marital status, to join. (It's FREE; there's no fee; yippee!) Just indicate "cat

chat" on the pull-down field. What members can expect when they log on is a host of infotainment, important news, fun stuff, cat photos, videos, and PURRsonals.TV, a cool place where you can watch your favorite cat videos and news clips all in one place. And now, there's Kitty Literate's Blog. Her PURRsonals.com blog will appear regularly on an irregular basis, but at least once a month. She'll cover all things cat, including everything from why we need a take-your-cat-to-work day, to general cat-a-blogging on male-female-cat relationships, the single-woman-with cat stereotype, husbands and cats, men and cats, and as they say, much much more. She will also cover serious issues and alert cat lovers to news they can use to better take care of their puddy cat.

Log on to her Valentine's Day blog at www.PURRsonals.com.
