Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #6 featuring Reservoir Cats

Welcome to 

The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Pawesome greetings fellow bibliocats

Hi guys, Amber here again *waves paw avidly*

It's lovely to be here again and sharing another book with mew all, and today I'm sharing one written by Basil's pawesome pal Squirt, from Twitter.  But before we get to that, here's a quick update from the lair of a literary kitty.

I was horrified the other day to read about a fellow library kitty called Browser who was being evicted from his library home by the local council in Texas - this in my humble opinion is outrageous; how can any library possibly function correctly without a cat?  It's NOT possible - I know this from purrsonal experience! 

Browser the Cat - Facebook Page

Mew can read all about it by clicking the link above and if mew haven't signed the petition to help him stay in his bookly home, purrlease take a moment to put your paw print on it by clicking the link below:

At the last count there were 13,500 signatures and it looks like Browser may have a temporary reprieve but the more peeps that share and sign the safer his future will be.

Thank mew and now onto the main event...

This week on Book Reviews with Amber, I'm sharing...

Reservoir Cats



Meet Squirt, a supurr savvy kitty with a fabulous tale to tell and pawesome witty mewsings to share.  I did have to repeatedly shush and then tell the P.A. to leave the library more than once while we were reading this as she began to laugh rather a lot at Squirts rather keen wisdom and comic literary wit. [Well mew know that mew have to have QUIET in library's and I do enforce that rule, even though on the inside I can be quite literally laughing my socks off! MOL]

If like the P.A. and I, mew enjoy a good chuckle or at times a random burst of hysterics then I can wholly recommend Reservoir Cats.  Squirt is a Somali cat living in the far wilds of Scotland, where he is in charge of... well effurything; including his staff, the estate, patrolling to keep the place safe from other kitty invaders [one inpurrticular, but no spoilers here] and even helping to teach the kitten newcomers next door a few tricks.  It's a really fun read, especially the part about the Boxman and 2 day old mouse [but that's as spoilery as I'm going to get], trust me mew'll laugh your fur off.

It is part diary and part kitty observations on life; getting revenge, the importance of goggles, feng shui and a whole host of other entertaining scenario's.

Squirt has furry valid opinions and highly adept answers fur effurything, plus an alter ego supurr villain called The Shadow! 

I am hoping that there will be a sequel, but I'll have to get Basil to ask Squirt about that. 

If mew want a wildly witty and comical caper, read this!

The Kindle Edition is 106 pages long

  1. I am crossing my paws that Browser is safe! I helped spread the word about him because I was so appalled that the city council was trying to get rid of him.

    1. Good news Summer, Browser has still got his job!!! WOO HOO!!! Purrs Amber xx

  2. We signed that petition for Browser too. Hope he gets to stay.

  3. Hope Browser gets to stay. The book sounds fab!

    1. Hey Erin, thanks fur supporting Browser and I hope mew enjoy Squirts book! Purrs Amber xx

  5. Amber, I just got the free download of the book -- a sample of it. I would prefer a hard copy edition to read, but may have to go the kindle route for this one.

    I already voted to help Browser keep his job. And, Yes, I agree!! Libraries need cats!! My 12 (all adopted/rescued) love reading with me -- especially when I am reading God's Word !! ♥♥♥

    1. That's pawesome Diane, but I know what mew mean about having a 'real' book, they're my favourite kind too! Thanks fur helping Browser keep his job and absolutely all libraries needs cats MOL MOL and how purrfect mew have so many furbabies to join mew when reading - so purrfect! Purrs Amber xx

  9. Amber, I officially got word via various cat posts and yahoo news that Browser will be staying put in his job. The outcry from the public here in the USA -- plus worldwide was so demanding that the council had NO CHOICE but to let Browser keep his post at the library. So CATS WIN again!!!

      I'm so glad mew enjoyed Squirts book, it is furry funny and yes, a hard copy would be lovely - I'll get Basil to ask Squirt if that's on the cards. Purrs Amber xx
