**New Post** Getting All Arty-Farty with The Artful Fudger featuring Basil's New Pawtrait ~ A Present Fur Valentine's Day from The P.A.

Welcome To


Pawesome Greetings Dudes and Dudettes

Welcome to another arty-farty post and let me just tell me what I've been up to since mew last saw me.  I've been doing my own paintings, yep it's true and here's one of my efforts...


This is a painting of our gorgeous sisfur, Snowie.  I call it:

Bungly Jungly Snowie



Now let me show mew the main event, the P.A. decided to get something special fur us all this Valentine's Day and she surprised us with this.
She made this pic in an app a while ago - she can't remember which app - anyhoo she found the pic in her camera roll a few weeks ago and loved it that much she pootled to Vistaprint and had it turned into a 40 x 60 cm canvas to try.  And it came out so fab it made her cry, she's just deciding whether to frame it or not, so it's sitting in the sky lounge on the desk right now where we get to admire it effuryday.

The P.A. loves it, I mean really loves it, so it was an artful success!


And furry quickly before I go, I'm also joining gorgeous Athena on the...

Feline Fiction on Fridays #91 at Amber's Library featuring **The Valentine Cat** by Clyde Robert Bulla

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 this Valentine's week.

OMC what a week it's been, mew know those post-stealers at petzilia, they have now finally taken down our 60+ posts but only aftur we had to get our lawyer on-board to email them.

And the hilarious thing is this; aftur they illegally used our Wednesday post on their site [aftur 4 previous take-down notice emails from us to remove effurything], they now want us to remove our post from here, what a classic ~ we MOL'd so much we fell offur!

Howeffur, they were still stealing our posts aftur they'd emailed us at 10.30 Thursday morning us to say; sorry and we're going to remove them.

We have several screen shots to prove this, fur future use, just in case. And we have 100's of screen shots of effurything else of what they used illegally.

But the good news is this; since alerting the cat blog'o'sphere to the blogpost theft, and asking our pals to check the site fur their posts, the site has now been taken offline temporarily by their host GoDaddy due to many complaints of copyright theft, etc.

So we, the kitty blogging community have small victory, yet we shall have to be vigilant so this level of plagiarism and theft this does not occur again. 

And now all that kerfuffle is offur I can finally get back to my catnip heart, and oh my cod, when I tell mew this nip is truly epic, it's mind-blowingly epic! MOL

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

This week I'm sharing


The Valentine Cat

I've had this book fur quite sometime, in fact I think I originally bought it fur last years valentines review, then furgot about it and bought another one instead! MOL

Anyhoo, I found it in the stacks recently and it's here today; now this was furst published 1959, so this is the books 60th year in print, how pawesome is that, epically so.

It tells the story of a lonely artist, who has given up on his painting, until one day a little cat who has a heart-shaped white splodge on his forehead turns up and needs a home - mew know I don't do spoilers, so enough said there! MOL 

This is a lovely story and will delight young and older readers. The illustrations throughout are absolutely charming and if mew don't have it on your bookshelf, I would get a copy if mew can. My copy is a second-hand pawed one as I don't think there's a current print run, and I think buying used books is fun, and good fur the planet too! 

In summary, I loved this little tale, and am so glad I got a copy, it's just purrfect fur Valentines Day.
