Anyhoo, mew remember that before my birthday we're on the Halloween Trail of Spooky Weirdness throughout this month showing mew pictures that the P.A. has taken around our little village in Nowheresville, and last time I asked mew what mew thought of the blue glowing radio-active wurm alien thing, though it's still not as creepy as the week before with the face in the tree but still it was purretty weird.  Well this week, the picture was taken at tea time.... yep broad daylight...

So what do mew think caused the rainbow cloud and the blue orb on the left of the photo?

There was nothing that mew could see with the naked eye at the point in the sky and when the P.A. zoomed-in no other clouds had the rainbow effect.

Weird huh?  That orb isn't small either.... spooky or what?

So while mew ponder on the mystery of another blue orb, I think it's time fur this weeks book, so let's get to it...

This week I'm sharing

Cats on the Run 

(Tuck & Ginger)


Ged Gillmore

Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:

Watch out! This book is so funny you'll probably pee your pants laughing. It's bonkers and barmy but blooming brilliant. There's no need to tell you what it's about because you can probably guess. (There are these cats, right? And they're, like, on the run.) But you should prepare yourself for kidnappings, stolen taxis, exploding old ladies, and witches with farts so toxic they bring down big trees.

*    *    *

Do mew know how hard it is to find a suitable book fur Halloween, one that has just the right ingredients?  Witches, Cats, brooms, eveeel intent, bad things happening, good things happening, bad things happening some more, but then good thing happening again, etc.... etc.... 

Let me tell mew its been no mean paw to find one but as pure luck would have it I came across Cats on the Run and it actually did have all the right ingredients.  Although supposedly a kids book, furget that, kids would not get half of the subtle jokes, this was written fur adults but disguised as a kids book.

So where to begin, this book is actually hilarious at times. The narration is fabulous and Tucks character is the main source of the hilarity - his accent is absolutely brilliant - though I'm not going to spoilerize it fur mew but I was in stitches at times, yes it's true I almost MOL'd my fur off! 

I even had to ban the P.A. from listening to it while she was driving as she was laughing so hard she couldn't see - it should come with a warning - DO NOT LISTEN AND DRIVE!

That aside this is my new fav book fur Halloween, but mew have to listen to the audio version, as reading it yourself just won't be half as much fun, and the good news is there's another book in the series called Cats Undercover but the bad news is, there's not an audio version yet... arrrrrrrggggghhhhhhhhh!!!

[Note to self: Must write a letter to author to find out when audio version fur book two is available asap...]

 Audio: 6 hrs 48 mins    

Hardcover: 258 pages

  3. Amber, this is epically brilliant! Thank you! Do I need to thank everyone, like in the Oscars? OK I thank I myself and me MOL
    Now that orb is so very cool. I wonder if you've caught Santa's new sled on a test run? I mean they have to do it somewhere don't they?
    Love the idea of this book and the cover sold me on it straight away..... You have a great Halloween, and easy on the nip treats, apparently they don't go too well with dry ice!
    Goodle pip

    1. Oh Erin mew're furry welcome, and I really hope mew enjoy the goodie bag, and I am sending it with the P.A. on Caturday to give to your peep at the nec Pet Show! MOL XOX

  4. Hate to debunk, but the blue dot 'could' be a lens flare, because it's exactly at the edge of the sundog. And trust me, I believe!

    1. Hey Eastside Cats, yep we did wunder if it was something like that, but it's much more fun to think of it as something completely unexplained! MOL XOX

  5. Me can't believe we missed your birthday. We gotta tell mommy to quit gettin' sick, it really messes with our visitin' time. anyways, Happy belated birthday. We know it was purrfect cuz you are. We're so happy to be your furiends. Big hugs fur all.

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Raena

    1. Awwww no wurries Dezi & Raena, furstly your Mommy needs to be fighting fit, and there's always next year to join in! Big hugs XOX

  6. Concatulations to Erin ! Happy Halloween ! Purrs

  7. Apaws! Apaws! So happy for Erin to win! The book sounds really good. I helped Mom put it on her To Read List. Love the blue orb. It's probably an alien.

    1. Hi Herms, oh brilliant, your Mom will luff it and I like the idea of the orb being cat aliens!! MOL XOX

  8. Like Eastside Cats said the rainbow is a "sundog" - (sorry !) It's caused by sunlight hitting ice crystals in the air. Sometimes there is a complete ring, sometimes they look like parentheses and sometimes they only show up on one side. It can happen with a moon too - those are called moonbows.
    Congrats to Erin !

    1. Hey Mary, yep, we thought it was something like that, but still it's much more fun to think of it as some weird portal that was just about to open up in the sky!! MOL XOX

  9. This looks like a fun book. Happy Halloween!

  10. YAY for ERin! That photo is spooky indeed but Mary McNeil and Eastside Cats have it right we think - it's a sundog (although it should be called a suncat!).....totally weird indeed but a very cool thing to see!

    Hugs, Teddy

    1. Hey Teddy, yep mew're right, but why couldn't it have been a flare from an alien spaceship? [much more fun] And mew are so right, it should be called a suncat fur sure!! MOL MOL XOX

  11. There's some spookiness going on, Amber! We hope you all had a spooktacular Halloween.

    1. Happy Halloween Island Cats, here's hoping your island didn't get infested with zombies or the like! MOL XOX

  12. Yup, a sundog it is...at least I think so.And maybe the moon is trying to outshine it?? A lovely picture and eerie to boot!
