Colouring with Cats #70 ~ Getting Your OM on with Mandalas on Mondays ~ It's Getting Fresher and Look What Happened To The Catnip Quality Control Officer!

Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furriends

It's turned a little fresher this morning as apparently The Beast from The East is headed our way again - we don't want that aftur last time! MOL

But anyhoo, we can hunker down in the bunker on Level 8 and it'll be just like summer down there with a balmy 22 - 25C, so if anypurrdy needs some extra warmz, mew know where to visit.  

Pandora was enjoying a little outside time as yesterday while cold, it was still rather sunny at times.

Smooch was busy as the Chief Quality Control Officer at The Catnip Factory, and as mew can see he was going fur full immersion, he takes his weekend job furry seriously.

A short while later...

He was blissed out! MOL

Yep, he loves that sheltered spot by the fence, it's his favourite place to snooze in the sunshine.

Anyhoo, we do hope mew've all have a totally pawesome weekend and that mew're ready fur the week ahead, so let's jump right in and start as always with our little breathing exercise, which we're sure mew all have down paw by now...  but if mew've furgotten, stop what mew're doing fur a moment and take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Don't mew feel better already?  I know we do!

Smooch is here again to offur mew assistance in getting your OM's on and Zen Harmonies happening, so just press play, close your eyes and follow his instructions.

Don't mew feel better already? We most certainly do! MOL

All the mandala's featured are created & designed by us.

And here's this weeks mandala.

Just right click the image to save and print it...

This is our finished version...

Coloured on the iPad and then transformed in Prisma, this time we chose the effect -  Sakura.

If mew'd like to share your peeps pawesome artwurk feel free to upload it to our Facebook page at:

as we'd really, really love to see your finished mandalas.

Don't furget mew can download our free Colouring with Cats ~ Books One, Two & Three here, if mew haven't already done so: 

So on that note we'll say bye fur now and hope to see mew on Wednesday with The Pet Parade Blog Hop.

Until then

Feline Fiction on Fridays #80 at Amber's Library featuring **Happy Cats** by Charlie Ellis & Pawesome Give-Away!

Welcome To

With Amber ~ The Best Library Kitty in the entire Mewton~Clawson Parish

Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*waves paw*

Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library

OMC, guys what a week...AGAIN!  The P.A. is up to her eyeballs at wurk, so do bear with us while she gets sorted, as she's had to move offices this week, and new staff have started, so mew can imagine trying to sort out all the refurb, setting up new departments etc... it's not a 5 minute job, so hopefully we'll be visiting mew all on the weekend to catch up on your epic adventures.

As fur me, I'm feeling great and am so much more agile at the moment, and we're investigating the CBD oil to see if I can purrhaps try that to help with my arthritis, but in the meantime the meds from the vets are doing a stellar job. 

And if mew're wundering why there's no pic of me in this section, just scroll down.... MOL 

And now I think it's time to share this weeks book.

This week I'm sharing

Happy Cats 


Charlie Ellis

**Furstly I have to let mew all know that I was given a free copy of this book in exchange fur a fair review**

Here's the book blurb:

For every cat that hisses and stares at you, there is a happy cat somewhere in the world that would love to receive your attention. A celebration of joyful and jubilant felines, this book is especially crafted for all the cat lovers out there who are desperate to have a puss that loves them back.

*    *    *
Aftur Fudge and Pandora heard me laughing, rather loudly they came to investigate...

Jeez what does a kitty have to do to get some peace around here!!!!!

Finally, I was alone in the catservatory...

So what did I think to Happy Cats... I thought the pictures and captions were epic; I laughed and laughed and laughed! 

Charlie Ellis has really picked some of the best kitty photo's out there to use and I know mew'll think so too, this is one of those little books, that when mew've had a bad day, i.e: somepurrdy ate your breakfast while mew were at the water fountain, or mew went to get back in bed and somepurrdy else has hijacked your spot, or even, mew went to use your favourite litter box only to find that Smooch didn't get his back-end in the tray... nuff said on that matter [MOL], but anyhoo my point is this, if mew need a chuckle and smile to brighten your day, this little gem is definitely fur mew!

And what's even better the pawesome peeps at Summersdale Publishing sent me an extra copy to give-away*, so if mew would like to get your mittens on a copy of this pawesome book, just leave a comment below and we'll share the winner on next Fridays post.

*The give-way is open wurld-wide ~ Unless mew're in one of those countries that aren't allowed to join in. Mew know who mew are!


And just before I pop off, I'd like to say a special thanks to Summersdale Publishing fur sending me Happy Cats, guys, mew made my day!
