Supurr salutations pawesome furriends *waves paw*
Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library
Mew may have seen on our Instagram account last weekend the P.A. did the monthly sofa move and found all the missing toys which obviously end up hiding from Fudge as he's really brutal on some of them.
Fudge had this to say in his defence while up the tree...
So anyhoo, aftur the cleaning had finished in house, the P.A. started towards the library brandishing the vacuum cleaner and other cleaning paraphernalia.. well I launched towards the door...
And so a stand-off ensued until the P.A. decided to go back from whence she came with said vacuum cleaner... so I'll keep the cobwebs fur now, they'll be pawesome sprayed gold fur Catmas! MOL
And now I think it's time to share this weeks book.
This week I'm sharing
Cat Confidential The Book Your Cat Would Want You To Read by Vicky Halls
**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:
The bestseller 9 out of 10 cats would recommend to their human
You love your cat – and you hope your cat loves you too – but cats and their owners can often misunderstand each other. The cat says one thing and the owner hears another. Mostly, it feels right but, sometimes, something can go very wrong. How do you really know if your pampered pet wants a stroke behind the ears, or whether that insistent miaow is trying to communicate something more complex? If you’ve ever wondered why your cat does the things it does – soils in the house, picks a fight with the cat next door, feels nervous around strangers or destroys your furniture – then this is the book you have to read.
Renowned cat counsellor Vicky Halls has changed the lives of thousands of owners and their problem cats. Filled with intriguing case studies, amazing facts and practical advice, Cat Confidential answers all your questions so that you can understand your feline friend better. Fascinating, funny and heart-warming, it's your chance to explore the unique bond between you and your cat. Catisfaction guaranteed.
So what did I think to this? I thought it was supurr informative and full of really useful tips. No matter if mew're a cat-staff veteran or a complete newbie-in-training, I think this would be your go to book fur many issues that some cat-staff may encounter with their fabulous feline companions. It's full of interesting case studies, which gives the reader a sense of better understanding on how to address problems, issues, or scenarios should they occur. It is a furry well thought out book, written in a tone that feels more welcoming and helpful than other similar books I've read offur the years. Vicky Hall really knows her stuff; from kittens all the way up to seniors - which as mew know is my designation being 16+ and yes I do get my nails clipped regularly as I tend to get stuck on things a lot more often these days! There are chapters on kittens, play, toileting issues, age related problems, all the way through to grief etc... this a really comprehensive guide and would be a fab addition to your book shelf that I would heartily recommend to all cat-staff. And in four wurds I can sum up... A total must have!
And as we're getting closer to Catmas, this would be the purrfect gift fur any cat lover. Just before I pop off, I'd like to say a special thanks to Penguin Random House Books fur sending me a copy of, Cat Confidential.

So dudes and dudettes we're going to be Smooching All Offur The Planet as we Smooch Around the Wurld ~ how much fun, so much fun!
Oh and because The B Team doesn't use conventional means of travel, I'll be using the TTTB aka the Time Travelling Telephone Box to go on my little jolly's, so thank cod I won't have to use an airport as I don't think I'd get through security with all the extra covert hardware I travel with! MOL
Furst though I have to do my travel check list:
Oh and I've already had all my travel vaccinations, as mew neffur know and I always think it's better to have the lot rather than risk getting some foreign lurgy which in turn ruins your jolly's!
So where are we going today?
Today pawesome pals we're headed to the magical Scottish wilds in search of Nessie! So with Mack's travel card ready, I hopped in The TTTB and set the co-ordinates fur the white sandy beaches of Trout Towne.
Last time I went on a little jolly, Miss Dai$y, Mackerull's sisfur joined me on a totally terrific trip to Paris, and mew can read all about our fabulous day out by clicking here!
The flares were on the beach as before to assist my landing, as mew neffur know what could be lurking under the sand! Young Mackerull was eagerly awaiting my arrival and bounded up to the door and was knocking before I could even open it. "Dude, take a breath!" I said. "But Smooch, I've been waiting like, erm 3 minutes and I'm soooooo excited, where are we going?" Mack asked jumping up and down on the spot.
I gave him my most toothiest grin and replied. "Little dude we're going on a monster hunt!" His eyes were as wide as saucers as he gulped and squeaked. "Monster hunt?" "Yep fur real dude, we're going in search of The Loch Ness Monster!" I was still grinning. "Are mew ready fur the trip of a lifetime?!" "Oh boy am I ready!" Mack breathed in awe. "And can I hit the big red button that Miss Dai$y told me about?" "Mew sure can, so let's get going and find Nessie!" I laughed.
Inside the TTTB I pointed to a large, red button on the control console. "Mack, take it away dude!"
He smacked the button with his paw and we vanished...
13.56488896511111r seconds later we landed.
I flung the TTTB door open and let Mack step out into the greenest of green lands, he'd neffur seen anything like it.
And this is what happened next...
Mackerull and I had a blast, we ate haggis, got rained on, saw rainbows, climbed castles, hiked over mountain, moor, dale and lots of green stuff. We cruised around the loch, logg-rolled and drank plenty of nip scotch to keep warm! MOL Dudes when I tell mew, Mack was exhausted when I finally dropped him safe and sound back in Trout Towne and he has a picture to prove we saw the legendary and infamous LOCH NESS MONSTER! What a trip, and when I say it was epically epic, it truly was!
Thanks so much fur joining Mackerull and I on our epic Highland adventure and I'll be back before mew know it sharing another far flung destination, so hope mew can join me! And if any of mew would like to accompany me on any future excursions which no doubt will be terribly exciting, possibly a little bit dangerous [might be furry dangerous at times] and definitely a once in a lifetime oppurrtunity, send an email to: deardrbasil @ gmail . com with Smooch Around The Wurld in the subject line and a nice picture of yourself [which we can clip] plus your name, age and a couple of fun facts about mew, and who knows mew could be joining me on the adventure of a lifetime! Furry quickly before I go, Shadow is joining me on a Jolly later next week as we head north fur a rather seasonal adventure, so I hope mew can join us fur that! Until next time Keep Calm and Don't Furget Your Camera
