Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #16 featuring Cupcakes, Bats, and Scare-dy Cats

Welcome To

The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Spooky greetings supurr furriends

Sorry furriends while I just shout at the smoke machine oppurrative...

"Will mew purrlease turn off the smoke machine, when I said I wanted a spooky atmospheric vibe to the library I didn't mean I wanted a pea-souper wipe-out dudes!"

Now where were we, oh yes...

 ...welcome welcome welcome to the spooky library... muawhahhahahahahahahahaaaa! 

As mew can see I'm so feeling the Halloween vibe, the library is as spooky as it gets, chilling in fact, so much so that I actually had to put the heating one! MOL

My ghost pals even came out to play, usually they're a little shy and spend their time moving things about that they shouldn't just because they think it's funny - I can tell mew it's not funny when one minute your plate is full of nip and cream cookies, then the next minute there's only one left!

Also mew may have noticed that I have my Halloween costume on, and even if I do say so myself I think a make a supurr cute witch! MOL

Well on that note, I think it's time to dive into this weeks spooky offuring.

This week on book reviews with Amber, I'm sharing

Cupcakes, Bats, and Scare-dy Cats 

(An Annie Graceland Cozy Mystery Book 6)

I know it is a little unusual to start on book 6 of a series, but as it's Halloween and we're all about Halloween this week, that's why!

Where to begin, mew know I've neffur read anything by this author before so I wasn't sure what to expect.  After a stilted stop start, stop start I must say that I found it really rather fun.

The kitty in this purrticular cozy mystery is called Theodore Von Pumpernickle and when I say he is rather dramatic, that's the understatement of the century. 

The story is told from multi viewpoints which when I was listening to the audio book was a little confusing at furst but the more I listed the better it became. 

Theodore's mum, Annie Graceland has psychic abilities and mew guessed it, murder just seems to follow her around.  In this book her apartment manager, Anthony Spiggottini is the victim, and during an unannounced apartment inspection Theodore and his K9 pal are inadvertently bundled out of her apartment due to violating the 'no dogs allowed' policy. 

This is where I really started to take note as indoor, pampered kitty Theodore is on the streets.  I found his narrative highly amusing the way he describes his plight, he blows effurything out of proportion in such an epic way mew can't help but laugh.  

I will go back and start at the beginning of the series so I am more familiar with the characters, but I have to say even though I started in the middle I really did enjoy it.

Paperback copy: 216 pages

Audio Edition: 7 hours 41 mins long

Happy reading or listening

The Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 166 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Love is Being Owned By A Husky & Barking from the Bayou

Supurr Friday Greetings pawesome Pals

Welcome to another Pet Parade! 

Oh where to begin... this week we finally managed to get a 'sample' of Smoochie's piddle, he's been a furry good boy of late with only one incident. The P.A. actually said, it's so typical when I want him to piddle on the floor he doesn't! MOL  So anyhoo the piddle was tested and the results are all purrfectly normal, in other wurds he doesn't have a medical issue that is causing his little purroblem.

So the vet has done his referral to see the kitty shrink and the P.A. now has to fill out a 10 page form and send it off, then paws crossed Smoochie will get his furst appointment furry soon, so we'll keep mew all posted.

In other news, it's been getting a little cooler and the nights have really drawn in resulting in much less patrolling time than we'd like, but the good news is; it's that wunderpurr time of the year when the P.A. starts making a fire in the wood-burner turning our sitting room into a totally tropical haven! MOL

We hope mew've all been having a totally epic week and look forward to finding out.

Oh and before we go, the Grande Finale of our epically epic adventure, Fast, Furry & Dangerous finally came to its thrilling conclusion on Tuesday and fur those of mew who asked, yes we have a new adventure in the pipeline and this one will quite literally blow your fur off.  We'll keep mew updated....

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