Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #5 featuring Cooking For Your Cat

Welcome to 

The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Pawesome greetings fantabulous furriends

Hey guys, Amber here again *waves paw enthusiastically*

It's lovely to be here again, I do hope mew've all had a great week and plenty of reading time.  Last week I mentioned about getting a library ladder this has NOT happened yet and yes, I've written a formal complaint to the P.A. who said, "Don't panic, I'm on the case but in the meantime choose books from the lower shelves!"

So this week I did as she asked and the book I choose was on a lower shelf [see bottom library pic to the left of the lion] so I least I didn't breach any Health & Safety rules.  Plus mew may remember a few weeks ago when Smoochie was doing his brief introductory seminar on  'How to oppurrate a ladder safely'  [as accidents in the wurk-place are appurrently a common occurrence these days due to impropurr training] and he has insisted that when the new library ladder arrives, all memfurs of the heathen hoard are fully trained in 

Ladder Protocol 

[Certificates will be awarded to all purrticpants passing the course]

Which no doubt he will be sharing with mew all, just in case your peeps decide to bring any ladders - fur whateffur reason - into your abode! 

Anyhoo I'm digressing, so let's get on with this weeks book pick.

This week on Book Reviews with Amber, I'm sharing

Now this is a little different from my previously featured books, but neffurtheless it's definitely wurth featuring.

This an actual cookery book fur cats featuring many delicious recipes fur the gourmet kitty and it's full of colour photo's.  While many peeps [on Amazon] have taken it rather too seriously aka a formal nutritional guide fur cats and panned it; at our abode it's more of a tongue in cheek book that gets visitors wundering what on earth happens in our kitchen!

"Do you really cook for your cats?"

"Wow, look at those dishes, have you [The P.A.] tried any?"

"Gourmet cats huh... you have too much time on your hands!" 

"So how many recipes have you cooked?"

etc... etc... etc...

It's an ideal coffee table book, and at our house the P.A. is not the cook if she can help it.  She says that's dads department and laughs hysterically.  But seriously if mew're looking fur a fun read with real recipes [should mew choose to try them] this is a great addition to effuryones library.

Here's a few recipes fur your purrusal, so mew can see the content and cute pictures.

The Pet Parade is on a break till next week due to the Blog Paws Conference, howeffur we're still here with a Random Friday Post! MOL

Welcome to
A Random Friday  Post! 

Hiya pawesome buddies, 

Yep, mew guessed it! 

There's no Pet Parade today as a lot of bloggers are at the Blog Paws Conference in Phoenix this week.

We so wanted the P.A. to go this year, we've been trying to send her since 2013 but something always seems to crop up and prevent said trip.

2013 the P.A.'s parents were in a horrific car accident
2014 We don't mention 2014
2015 Offurspill from 2014
2016 Clashing with another trip

Next time we're going to be supurr sneaky and book her ticket well in advance so she has no excuse not to turn up to the 2017 conference.

"It'll be good fur mew!" I said two months ago. "Get out of Sleepy Hollow and meet some great peeps, learn some cool stuff, and who knows what mew might discover!"

The P.A. nodded most agreeably and said, "But Basil I've just booked a ticket to OZ!"

Well what can mew say to that?

There we were trying to help her along and she does that! [Wurds fail me! *Exasperated Sigh*]

Anyhoo let's move on, last Friday I mentioned that the book covers fur my fictional alter ego

were finally ready fur the prequels to Basil the Bionic Cat, so today as we're not hopping we'll have a little cover reveal instead.

Front & Back

Front & Back

We really love them of course and why wouldn't we, hours of toil on our part went into the development and design! MOL  Hopefully they will both be ready fur the book shelves fur the autumn and they will both be perma-free.

Oh and before we furget the P.A. is just developing a new website fur herself and it's not live yet.  She took her old one offline in 2014 due to the 'stuff' that was happening back then and hasn't yet reinstated it.  But it won't be long.

If mew missed anything this week, here's the latest links fur your purrusal

We'll be back on the morrow with the Caturday ComicStrip and again with our usual Selfie Selection on Sunday, so hope mew can join us then.

Wishing mew all a purrfect weekend and we hope that effuryone is having a great time in Phoenix and we're loving all the live updates on Facebook!

Bestest purrs & hugs

Thankful on Thursday with Humphrey & Blog Hopping with Pepsi

Purrsday greetings pawesome pals

Humphrey is joining us today now he's finally gotten offur his two week Grump-Fest aka the dropped ice cream on our day out to the seaside!

We solved his surly mood by making him an entire tub of iced deliciousness made with triple-shot extra creamy cream with crunchie nip cookie chunks [Erin I know mew are salivating right now! MOL].  This, funnily enough abated the black cloud that had been residing approximately 6 inches above his head all this time.

He said and I quote,

"Basil, this is the best ice cream effur in the entire history of ice cream, we need to go into purrduction right away!"

Then he added,

"Thanks so much, I needed that! If mew need me I'll be in the lab getting it ready fur purrduction to begin immediately, by the way what are we calling it?"

"Humphrey I'll leave that up to mew!"

He waved and dashed off.

I nodded, waved back and was happy that he was happy, and the fact that he has a new project. 

So today I'm thankful that Humphrey's now Happy and not Grumpy anymore! MOL

Here's to Humphrey's new project and may it bring him much purrleasure

Wishing mew all a day of much happies

Bestest purrs

Basil XOX
