Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #56 featuring Finding Mya

Welcome To

With me, Amber ~ The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*wavy paws*

Do mew know how much I've missed mew all?  I've missed mew all terribly so this last couple of weeks and I'm thrilled to be back at last!

Mew may remember last Friday when Basil mentioned that I'd run out of Audible Credits again, this is true and when I tried to renew my plan early on my iPhone it wouldn't let me and immediately I was transported back to last year when the exact same thing happened...



But then the P.A. said. "Amber, let's log in to your account on the desk-top computer and check your account status before you start plotting all manner of things like last year!"

"Oh good idea!" I concurred, taking a firm grip of my raging emotions before I was engulfed in a complete meltdown.

So off we went to the P.A.'s office in the Sky-Lounge and logged into my account, and mew'll neffur believe it, we were able to renew my memfurship early so now I have a basket full of lovely credits to spend!

I'm so excited as mew can imagine as I've got so many new books lined up to share with mew that I can barely contain myself, I'm so happy I could burst with joy, but I won't because that would be horribly messy! MOL 

So lets jump in with this weeks supurr special book as I've been waiting to share this with mew since the start of the year.

Here's me with Herms, pawesome leader of the Wonderpurr Gang and all things Purranormal!!! 

Finding Mya


Kimberley Koz

Book Blurb:

Eight-year-old Mya has a magical relationship with her grandma's foster kitten, Herman. They talk to each other. Not with words. With tickle thoughts! It’s love at first sight, and they plan to live Happily Ever After. Then the worst happens. Mya's vacation ends, and Herman is given to a woman whose dog treats cats like chew toys. He escapes danger, but the road to finding Mya is scary and tough. She promised to leave picture-maps along the way to her home. All Herman has to do is follow them and he will live Happily Ever After in the safety of Mya’s arms. It's a wonderful plan. Too bad it goes wrong right from the start.

*    *    *

As mew know I really love Herms, and I reviewed

Sherlock Herms Purranormal Mysteries: The Case of the Dancing Ghosts

last year, and it was fabulous.  So I'm delighted to finally review Finding Mya.  So what did I think, I thought it was freakin marvellous.  There were many times when I had leaky eyes and I was feeling Herms stress, but I knew deep down that it would all end up ok... and that made me read faster and faster!  But mew know I hate to give spoilers, so I'll say this; it's a lovely, well thought out story with so many wonderpurr characters along the way.  There are a couple of bitter-sweet moments, but mew know effury big adventure needs those moments to make the joyous ones even better.

I have to mention the totally adorable illustrations, they are gorgeously cute and really made me smile.

If mew're a fan of Herms, and mew haven't read it, then I think mew really need to get a copy as soon as pawsible!

Colouring with Cats #51 ~ Getting Your OM on with Mandalas on Mondays & Fudge Thought He Eated The Mandala

Happy Monday beautiful furriends

Fudge had a bit of a meltdown... and here's why...

"OMC Fudge, what did mew do dude?" Parsley asked.

"I was just..." Fudge began to reply and then looked at all the little bits of paper he'd just ripped off. "OOPS!"

"Let me see, get your floofy butt off it!" Parsley said.

Fudge moved to the side and Parsley examined the mandala.  "Dude mew don't know how lucky mew are, you ate the sketch pad and not the mandala!"

"Phew!" Fudge sighed with relief. "That was close!" 

"Oh the P.A. would have just printed another and coloured it again," Parsley said. "But dude, be careful, mew don't want eating that glittery ink!"

"Why not?" asked Fudge.

"Because you'll be pooping glitter and the P.A. will be rushing mew to the vets!" Parsley laughed.

"Oh heck no, I don't wanna go there!" Fudge laughed.

Anyhoo, we do hope mew've all have a totally pawesome weekend and that mew're ready fur the week ahead, so let's jump right in and start as always with our little breathing exercise, which we're sure mew all have down paw by now...  but if mew've furgotten, stop what mew're doing fur a moment and take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Don't mew feel better already?  I know we do!

All the mandala's featured are created & designed by us, unless otherwise stated.

So without further adieu here's this weeks mandala.

Just right click the image to save and print it...

And here's our finished version...

Pawesome Friday Greetings Furriends

Welcome to the Pet Parade and our weekly round up, we hope mew haven't missed us too much offur the last week or so and we are trying our best to catch up.

This week the Pause Cat Cafe® asked us if we'd help promote their new FELINE GOOD campaign, of course we said yes as anything to feel good about is definitely wurth a shout out! 




and they will be sharing events such as yoga, mindfulness, gentle exercise, positive thinking and creative workshops - guys it sounds pawsitively heavenly and if we lived near Bournemouth, we'd be there faster than mew could say, make mine a niptini, shaken not stirred with a nip leaf on the side! MOL

The wunderpurr staff at Pause also have a great ethos happening; from making sure their cats welfare is numero uno above effurything else, to your visit being the best it can be, with a strong community feel and drive plus the added bonus of being kind to the environment too!

Wow these guys must have read our MO too, as while we were reading all about them, we just kept saying; yep, yep, yep, yep, these guys are pawesome. Talk about ticking all the boxes!

So if mew live in the south or are planning a visit, don't furget to check out their social media:

and check out all the latest stuff by searching #FelineGood and remember if mew're feeling a little blue in 2018, reach out, don't be shy, connect with like-minded souls and share the joys of cats.

In other news, Pandora is starting a new feature called Fashion with Felines, that will be starting towards the end of February.  She is so excited about it and we'll be sharing all manner of kitty apparel fur the discerning hooman in your life.  Plus the P.A. say's it gives her an excuse to go shopping - we don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing! MOL

Amber will be back next week with her usual Wordy on Wednesday post and she's got a furry special book to share with mew, one that is written by someone we all know and love, so don't miss out on that.  Oh and she's run out of credits again until the 7th of February but luckily the Tank is in the shop fur repairs so at least she can't go threatening anypurrdy this year - and there's no way to get new credits sooner as Audible have changed their policy again! [Mew'll be hearing all about this next week].

And we should be back to full strength in no time as the P.A.'s arm is finally getting better, her flu is still hanging on but is slowly and surely on the way out! [Hallelujah!!!]

If mew missed anything offur the last week, here's the latest posts fur your purrusal:
