Breathe in
Breathe out

The Turquoise Terror! 

We also turned this fab arty-farty picture into a puzzle, so do stop by the puzzle page and see if mew can beat our time of 9 mins 6 secs. A bit slower than last weeks! MOL



Anyhoo it's time for us to go for a snooze as we're worn out trying to rectify our Facebook and Instagram issues from yesterday, as apparently our blog is abusive and spammy and thus we've been reported to the FB gods and subsequently marked fur extermination - well our posts and weblinks are! MOL

We hope mew're all having a tremendous day and Bank Holiday weekend if that applies to mew.

Wishing mew lots of snoozy snuggles and we'll see mew on the morrow, until then...

Supurr salutations pawesome furiends

*waves paw*

Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library.

Oh, I've just got to tell mew the epic news, our excellent buddies from Scrumbles; mew remember we've done a few posts fur them in the past, well the grand news is their pawesome and most delicious food is now available at Sainsbury's supermarkets, so next time mew're in-store have a look - many congratulations guys!

Now then all the nice stuff is done, I have to address the barbaric and heinous happenings on Wednesday's post and the fact that a purrticular photo of yours truly was published without my consent and apparently I now have the new nickname of CHOMPER, fur the life of me I can't understand how they came up with that name.

Let me just say this to all those involved in Wednesday's debacle...


I'M COMING FUR MEW!!!!

And sleep with one eye open...


This week we're also joining in Friday Fill-ins with 15 & Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs.

1. I would love to be a fly on the wall in __________________________.
2. I am missing ______________________-.
3. I could use more _________ in my life.
4. I could do without _________  .

The P.A.'s answers are...

1. I would love to be a fly on the wall in- honestly I don't ever want to be a fly after watching the movie with Jeff Goldblum in it.

2. I am missing going shopping without queuing like it's the cold war or having to be like spiderman to get passed someone along a narrow shopping aisle trying to keep the 2m or 6ft regulated distance.

3. I could use more time in my life, I've got a backlog of projects to finish.

4. I could do without this coronavirus hell and life back to normal.

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

Amber's Purrsonal Phrenology Kit

Phrenology Cat: Read Your Cat's Mind!

 by 

Marlo Scrimizzi


Here's A Small Snippet of the Book Blurb:      

Have you ever wondered why your cat acts a certain way, has such an attitude, or does strange things? Now with the Phrenology Cat kit you can pin-point and label where exactly in your cat's brain their emotions, likes and dislikes, and quirks are located on a cute ceramic cat head.

>^.^<

 The kit includes:
3" tall uniquely designed & painted ceramic bust
32 page illustrated book with history & fun facts about phrenology and cats

Phrenology Cat Read Your Cat's Mind Feline Fiction on Fridays #133 ©BionicBasil®

Believe it or not, I actually purchased this on the 1st of May 2019, so it's been sat on the shelf fur just offer a year unopened until today. 

I was going to share another book, but then I saw this and thought I'd better share its before I forget fur another year! MOL

So what did I think to this little phrenology kit? I thought it was absolutely hilarious!  If mew look at the ceramic bust, it has all kitty behaviour purrfectly placed, and of course, it's all very tongue-in-cheek howeffur I think fur the cat-lover who has effurything this is the most purrfect, quirky gift mew could effur give.

An adorable item that would be well received a gift, and what a conversation starter, absolutely genius and I'm so delighted I got one!
