Mudpie Interviews...Persephone from Bailey Booth's Spy Kitty in the City Mystery Series

I always dreamed of being a part of my favorite show, Parking Lot Potluck, but I never expected them to ask me to help solve a murder.

Someone poisoned a dish on the popular cooking competition show. The host is dead and my favorite judge is in critical condition. The only one who witnessed the crime was Great Dane, Chloe.

Persephone and I are off to Seattle to solve the crime, but things are much different behind the scenes. Have the cast and crew been working on a recipe for deception, or was it a contestant with a case of sour grapes who’s brought production to a halt?

And Chloe isn’t talking to my talking cat.

Whatever I do, I have to keep my inner fangirl in check, or my favorite show could get eliminated for good.

Mudpie was very excited to have the opportunity to interview Persephone, the feline star of this series. We hope you enjoy meeting her!

Welcome, Persephone! Thank you so much for chatting with me today. Could you start by telling us a little about yourself and how you came to live with Addie?

Hi, Mudpie! Nice to meet you. I’m a ten-year-old black cat with white legs. Margaret, my old owner, used to call me Purry Pants. I didn’t like it. But I did like her.

I met Addie when I got catnapped after an art heist Margaret’s art gallery. Someone taped me into a cardboard box, and left me at Addie’s shelter. Imagine my surprise when she could understand me! I didn’t think humans could understand cats. When I told her what happened, we worked together to find the stolen painting. Margaret thought I should stay with Addie, and we found a cat at the shelter that was perfect for her.

What's a typical day like for you?

It depends on where we are. If we’re working at Helping Paws, I talk to the shelter animals and find out if they’re happy or if there’s anything they need. Human makes appointments to meet me, and then I tell Addie which of our animals would be best for them to adopt.

If we’re working on a case, we travel to new places. Addie talks to the people involved with the case, and I talk to the animals who saw what happened. Sometimes, they’re afraid to talk to me because they’re protecting their human. I try to pick up on scents too. Sometimes those help Addie find the bad guy.

Do you enjoy being able to talk to your human and other animals?

I like that I can talk to both, because they can’t talk to each other. Addie tries to make everyone at Helping Paws as happy as possible, but she had no way to know that something wasn’t right. So I like fixing things.

Are there any downsides, or times you wish you were just an ordinary kitty?

The thing I don’t like about our cases is that Addie puts me on a leash when we go out. She says it’s for my own good, but it’s so embarrassing.

Tell us about Potluck and Poison, the new Spy Kitty in the City Mystery you star in.

Someone got murdered on Addie’s favorite TV show, and we’re going inside the TV to help find out who did it. Addie says we’re not actually going inside the TV, we’re headed to Seattle, but I still don’t quite understand how the show gets in the TV. I need to talk to a Great Dane named Chloe who saw the crime, but the problem is, Chloe doesn’t like cats. So I’m worried I might not be able to help Addie this time.

Can you give us any clues as to what's next for you and Addie?

We’ll be back at Helping Paws finding homes for animals until the next case comes in!
