Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #24 featuring How to Talk to Your Cat About Gun Safety Plus FREE GIVE-AWAY

Welcome To


With Amber ~ The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty


Wunderpurr greetings fellow book lovers 

and 

welcome to another beautiful day in the library.

Hello, hello, hello 2017 and welcome to a brand new year of books, are mew excited, because I am and we've got so much to get through!


Offur the catmass period I did eat purrhaps one mince pie too many with rather too much cream on whilst reclining most of the time in bed, on the sofa, in the chair, on the rug in front of the fire, well mew get the idea.  My normal exercise regime of cardio, crunches and a few light weights to keep honed and toned completely went out of the window.

And some of mew may know I'm not too keen on the great outdoors, unless it's deliciously warm and the P.A. is in the garden, but the other other day the P.A. insisted I went to get a spot of fresh air and some exercise while she did a bit of cleaning, as I'm not a fan of Mr Dyson either.

It was a 30 minute outdoor excursion, which I can safely say was way past my comfort zone, I was ready to return to the fabulous indoors on minute 4 and 29 seconds.  And I was totally worn out, so I think that's all the exercise I'll be getting this January unless it's walking to my food bowl.

But I think I did take some rather nice selfies! MOL 

I've been getting a fabulous selection of books together fur 2017 so rather than keep mew in suspense any longer I think it's time we move on to this weeks book pick.




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

Here's the book blurb courtesy of Amazon UK:

The cats of America are under siege! 

Long gone are the good old days when a cat s biggest worries were mean dogs or a bath. Modern cats must confront satanists, online predators, the possibility of needing to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, and countless other threats to their nine lives. 

For over four decades, the American Association of Patriots have stood at the vanguard of our country's defense by helping to prepare our nation's cat owners for the difficult conversations they dread having with their pets. Written in a simple Q&A format, How to Talk to Your Cat About Gun Safety answers crucial questions such as, What is the right age to talk to my cat about the proper use of firearms? and What are the benefits of my cat living a lifestyle of abstinence? and especially Why does my cat need to use the internet? Can t he just play with yarn like cats used to do? 

Our country and our cats stand at a precipice. It will take courage, and it will take hard work, but armed with the knowledge within these pages, we can make our cats and America great again!"

*     *     *

As many of mew know, we, collectively known as The Heathen Hoard are gun nuts, and have quite a collection of weaponry in our secret bunker,  [enough to take offur a small island in fact] and though as the good intentions were of the P.A. in buying us this book fur Catmass, we feel it is a little aftur the horse has bolted.  I think we really needed this a few years ago! 

LOCK n Load guys! MOL

But anyhoo, let's dive in and begin. 

There are eight chapter titles which cover: Gun Safety, Evolution, Abstinence, Online Safety, Drugs, Puberty, Postapocalyptic Survival and Satanism.

Though this book is primarily fur my American cousins it was a rather entertaining read and my favourite line was: 

Under no circumstances should you provide your cat with a gun equipped with a laser scope, as your cat is likely to be more interested in the dot it makes than the deer, burglar, or communist in their sights.

Furry tongue in cheek all the way through, though I could imagine those more sensitive souls among us could take offence to some of the advice of the politically incorrect variety.

There are references to God, Christianity and other religious figures used in a way that encourages cats to live a virtuous life.  How to advise your cat against purradators online that may want to groom and take advantage of younger and more naive pussies, and what to do when your cat asks fur a smartphone.  The pitfalls of pre-marital sex and how that most possibly will lead to drugs and other substance abuse.

I could go on and on, but mew get the idea, this is a really fun book, with a lot of MOL moments.  I purrsonally chuckled all the way through and will definitely read it again!

  2. Amber, you are every bit the gorgeous girl ... and that is obvious in your recent photos :) It's not the size of the cat that matters ... but how you use those claws and fangs (and in the heathen horde's case ... guns). I've never heard of that book, but I am on my way to check it out right now ... thank you!
