Hi guys, it was a bit sunny on the weekend, so the P.A. insisted I get out of my bed and get some fresh air. Even though it was sunny, the breeze was chill and rather fresh.
Aftur a 2 minute and 47-second excursion on the new patio and a full lap around the new pond I deemed that was enough fur me.

Howeffur the P.A. had other ideas.

I pootled my furriness to the patio door, peered in and upon seeing the P.A. I scratched on the door until she opened it.

"I'm done!" I said.

The P.A. looked down at me. "Amber it's not even been five minutes, I think you need a bit longer."  And she promptly closed the door leaving me out on the patio.

Can mew believe it?  Seriously, I was completely speechless that she left me on the patio to get some extra fresh air! 

Like WTF was that????  

I mean my bed was getting colder moment by moment and it would take me a least an hour to get it back to the purrfect just-right 'Goldilocks' temperature.

At the four-minute mark I began to panic.

At this point, I'm losing body fat and feel weak with hunger, and then I had a brainwave, I plastered the most pitiful expression on my furry chops that I could muster and pressed my nose on the glass.

Within five seconds the door was open and I hurtled to my bed, all the while thinking 'Mew fell fur that hook line and sinker! MOL  

Honestly, I really don't understand what all the kerfuffle about the great outdoors is, me purrsonally I like my bed in the great-indoors with a food source within fifteen paces.

I just hope the P.A. doesn't think that this outside thing is going to become a regular occurrence, unless it's 25C outside I'm not interested.

 And now I think it's time fur this weeks book, so let get to it...

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

The Time-travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess 


Julia Jarman

Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:

Topher and his father are trying to get over the death of Topher's mother, an Egyptologist, when they take in a stray cat. This cat bears an uncanny resemblance to a cat ornament given to Topher by his mother and so they name it 'Ka', meaning 'double'. Topher becomes very attached to Ka and is puzzled by her mysterious absences. 

*    *    *

Although this is a kids book I really, really did enjoy enjoy listening to it.   It's fun, but it's also bit sad as Topher lost his mother, his new best friend is deaf and his new cat keeps going missing.

Ka the cat talks, which in my humble opinion makes fur a much better read than when the cat is just a cat.  The story rattles along a a great pace, and although the book is not very long the story is still detailed enough to bring maximum enjoyment.

There wasn't anything I didn't like and am looking forward to listening to the next in the series.  

My advice is try it, as mew know sometimes kids books are the best!

  2. Amber, I think you are spoiled by getting to go outside so much! Binga and I never turn down a chance to be outside for as long as possible, since it happens so rarely here. Plus we are always on leashes. You have a MUCH better deal.

  3. We only get to go outside if we stealthily sneak out through the doggy door...

  4. No offense, Amber...but we would love to get outside.

  5. Oh Amber, it's a disgrace the way we are forced to get fresh...really fresh air! I am forced off my kitty bed on my easy chair and thrown out the door onto the deck. Well, thrown is a rather strong word but escorted to the door, while mom has a whip in her hand, in case I disagree. The door is opened and "crack", the whip speaks for mom. There I sit, shivering in the fresh Canadian air for 3 minutes and 15 seconds while mom untangles the whip from dad's head. I'm allowed in when I climb up the sliding glass door yelling, "I'm freezing." All this for a bit of fresh thanks...I'll walk smartly toward the bedroom next time the door is opened.



  6. You poor kitty, you can come live with us and you will never have to go outside. Great review, I like children's books.

  7. Wow, from your description, we're kind of glad we don't go outside, Amber. ;)

    That book sure does sound like a good one. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Great book review, and love the new patio, but give me a nice warm day anytime! PS I shall be practicing that through the patio glass look, may come in handy!
    Purrs, ERin
    PPS that book sounds a delight, and we've founds kids books are really rather very good.
