Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #32 featuring Know Your Cat's Purr Points: A Practical Guide for the Purr Point Practitioner

Welcome To

With Amber ~ The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Many happy greetings fellow biblio-cats

*waves paw*

Do mew effur have; one of those weeks when it all starts out swimmingly well and then someone chucks a great big flipping boulder into your nice calm mill-pond and creates a tsunami?

Let me explain, I was out on the new patio, [pictures coming soon, we just need to get the lights sorted] the sun was shining, the new froggy pond with its fountains gently splish-splashing, being all supurr soothing and uber relaxing.

So there I was, enjoying a moment of tranquillity, just me, the froggy's and the fountains, blissful right?


Along came the heathens and ruined it, furstly by just being there and secondly they bought another cat with them.

Yes, mew heard me, they bought another cat. It would seem that the P.A. who on a good day is several sandwiches short of a picnic, decided in her bizarro wisdom to adopt two new kitties.


Well, I was flabbergasted to say the least and what makes it wurse is one of them is ginger too, I mean come on, I'm the only ginger-nut allowed. Two ginger-nuts is a recipe fur.... well fur whateffur. But I'm still the numero uno ginger-nut and this young whippersnapper had better behave.

Anyhoo, I digressed there fur a moment, it would seem that the new ginger-nut likes water, I mean he seriously likes water and promptly decided to fall in the pond. To which Smooch & Parsley thought was the best thing effur when they saw the mini tidal wave traverse the small pond.

I know mew can guess what happened next, but if mew can't let's just say it involved throwing stuff into the pond!


So let me tell me about the new adoptees, furstly meet FUDGE aka The Ginger Ninja

with his inter-dimensional tail, which also opurrates completely independent of Fudge, and I have deduced his tail actually has more brain cells than him! MOL 

And now here's Miss Pandora, who's slightly more refined and we've just decided aftur much deliberation that she looks like an Ewok, so her nickname is now Wookie. She's a right hairy beastie too, the P.A. said she's like a little sasquatch, who's got more fluffy as each day goes by.

We'll be back on Friday with more news on the new recruits but in the meantime, let's talk books!

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

Know Your Cat's Purr Points: A Practical Guide for the Purr Point Practitioner


Margaret Woodhouse

Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:

Purr inducing acu-pleasure for your moggy. This very cute little illustrated guide shows how to locate and work the pleasure points on a pussy cat’s body – from ears and chin to tummy and tail.
Although not ‘serious’, this is actually a very well thought through guide to the ways in which cats respond to being stroked, tickled and squeezed in the right places. It will bring smiles of recognition to anyone who enjoys coaxing a purr out of their cat.
*    *    *

Furst published in 2000,  the P.A. actually bought a copy in 2003, so it's been in the library fur quite a while and while totally tongue-in-cheek, this is a furry funny book and, the P.A. actually did try some of the purr points with great success.

It's highly entertaining and I would suggest reading it on a wet afturnoon when mew have your hooman with mew, so mew can direct your hooman in this ancient art.

Mew won't be disappointed, I wasn't! MOL 

Paperback copy:  64 pages

  1. Oh my goodness, welcome to Fudge and Pandora! Fudge's tail is amazing! And yes, I can see an Ewok in Pandora. Wookie is the perfect nickname.

  2. Welcome to Fudge and Pandora! Fudge's tail is MAGNIFICENT! And Miss Pandora is a gorgeous, floofy tortie! We bet after the adjustment period, they'll make great additions to the Hoard.

    1. Hi Momma Kat & Bear, oh they are fitting in great, it's just Fudge with his inter-dimensional tail that keeps causing mayhem! MOL purrs Amber xox

  3. A warm welcome to Fudge and Pandora ! Purrs

  4. WHOA! Fudge has amazing coloring (of course not as gorgeous as your gingerness) and definitely that EWOK has some brushing opportunities in her future! Congratulations on the new roomies. You'll have then worshipping at your feet (paws) in no time Basil!

    Love, Angel Sam and Teddy

    1. Hiya Angel Sammy and young Teddy, and thank mew most kindly fur saying such lovely things about my gingerness! purrs Amber xox

  5. OMC...what were the humans thinking. Now you are at eight like us...too many little time. That tail on Fudge looks like another fuzzy cat attached to his rump. Seems the ginger acquisitions of late are getting out of hand...first it was our Cooper Murphy and then Angel Sammy's little brother, Teddy, and now Fudge. We think there is a ginger tabby conspiracy a-paw. As to the book...sounds pretty pawsome. Thanks for the review. Good luck with Fudge and Pandora. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

    1. Hey guys, so many cats, so little time! Oh my there could well be a ginger-ninja influx!!! MOL purrs Amber xox

  6. OMC, what exciting news! I can't wait to learn more about Fudge and Pandora!

    1. Hiya Summer, oh these two are going to make purrfect little heathens fur sure! MOL purrs Amber xox

  7. More cats to compete with?!?! We can't wait to hear more. :)

    1. Hi Island Cats, oh not more competition, just new young blood fur Basil's Kitty Commando Training Centre - he said he needed more recruits apparently!! MOL purrs Amber xox

  8. Hey Basil! Welcome to Fudge and Pandora. They made great decisions when deciding to join your household. They're gorjus kitties and I know you will be thrilled (eventually) to call them fursibs. Secondly, I've seen that Purrpoints book on my Mom's shelf in her office. Now all I gotta do it get her to open it and follow the instructions. Any suggestions short of a cattle prod are welcome. Purrs! Herms

    1. Hiya Herms, oh the newbies will wurk out great, Basil's training them today - they are in gun safety 101 right now! MOL Oh Herms mew must get your mom to get the book out and try it on mew like stat dude!!!! MOL purrs Amber xox

  9. Welcome Fudge and Pandora, they are almost as adorable as you. That looks like a fun book.

  10. Awww Queen Amber, you'll always be my Queen! *bows* Gorgeous as always and if the two new comers annoy too much, come on over to my place! :D x

    1. Hi Aunty J, thank mew fur bowing, it does make me feel most importante, just a shame the others don't bow enough.... hmmmmm.... I may come holiday with mew if it all gets too much! purrs Amber xox

  11. Wow, two newcomers. What fun. Hope you all get along well.

    You are all very well-read. Books are great.

    1. Hey Funny Farmers, so far so good, effurypurrdy seems to be getting along just fine! purrs Amber xox

  12. Your newbies look very nice and trust me, I know what you're going through. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  13. A BIG hello to Pandora, Fudge, and that wonderful tail! I'm sure they'll both fit in really well with the Heathen Hoard, and clearly aren't adverse to making a splash! Amber, you will always be numero uno ginger Lady in our book! Purrs ERin

    1. Hiya Erin, Fudge is NUTZ, he spent the entire afternoon yesterday doing zoomies around the garden, it wore me out watching him from the comfort of the lounge! MOL purrs Amber xox

  14. My group is very impress to read this particular blog post. This is very astonishing. I would like to travel this post.

  15. Goodness Amber what is going on with the PA and her mate? The hoard growing by two with Fudge and Pandora is a really big change that will take some adjustments fur sure. Was there warning or is this some nefarious plan by those to managed by brain control by the introduction of that despicable mind managing caramel coffee latte with creme? Keep them at bay until you are sure they did not bring a thermos along with them.
    Now the book looks like something we could use on a gray day while laying with The Dad so we snuck the password and ordered it used for $0.01. We were ready to buy some treats with money left over but then there was that sneaky shipping. Darn. Have to wait fur our next allowance.
    Anymeow and lastly
    We sent the Bobble Hat on to Cody and Caren with the list of others so it is good for another 2 hops after Cody.
    Purrs Buddy
    Stop by Scouts sometimes my friend
    We miss you
    Timmy and Family

    1. Hiya Timmy and Co, I'm not sure whether it was some nefarious plan or not, apparently basil said a while back that we needed some new recruits, this fact I've only just learnt. It would seem that some of the Hoard are reaching retirement age and Basil wanted some young blood to train! MOL Oh fantastic that mew ordered the book, and great news that Caren & Cody are getting the hat next. Thanks so much fur joining in and I'll remind Basil to call in at Cat Scouts asap! purrs Amber xox

  16. "Several sandwiches short of a picnic..." BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

    But seriously, dude. Your new fur-sibs are super gorgeous, for sure. purrs

    1. Hiya Seville, yep that's our P.A. nuttier than a fruitcake!!! MOL purrs Amber xox

  17. OMC!!! OMC!!!!!!! Welcome Fudge and Pandora, aka Wookie!! MOL! What a humongous tail on Fudge, wowee!

    We hope these kitties will enhance your hoard:) We are sure they already do...but swimming in the pond??? Yikes! MOL!

    We hope this doesn't get Snoochie all upset into backsliding...

    Yup, we have lots of pleasure kitty points:)
