Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*waves paw*

Happy Wednesday to mew all, I hope your week has been wunderpurr thus far! Mine not so much... mew see I've got a bit of a situation going on...



Buy Your Own Books 

my reply to which, was

 Mew Can't Be Serious!

I'd been browsing on my most fav interwebs shop effur, Amazon and found a fabulous selection of books to add to my library.  Then the P.A. arrived in the office and sat at the desk, so I seized the oppurrtunity and said.

The P.A. looked at me and said. "What are you taking about Amber?"

"Can mew just add your credit card deets and click buy so I can get some new books?" I replied.

The P.A. looked at my basket contents and scrolled through my soon to be new and delicious books delivered to my door the furry next day.

"Do you realize how many books you have here?" the P.A. asked in shock.

"It is a huge problem!" The P.A. answered. "Did you see how much the total is? And I just paid for your annual Audible subscription last week, so unless you've got a secret stash of cash, say bye bye to all the books!"

I gave the P.A. a rather withering look and said...

"Good luck with that!" The P.A. mumbled.

It's rather funny but suddenly I can't find Parsley anywhere, he seems to be avoiding me?????

I'll ambush him later!

*    *     *

Meanwhile in the inky blackness of Purradator Wurld...

"Shhhhhhhh Smooch, Amber's looking fur me, she wants my credit card to buy thousands of books fur her library!" Parsley whispered from his hiding spot in the dark under the stairs. "Anypurrdy would think I'm the only cat around here with a bank account!"

"Dude mew are the only cat around here with a bank account!" Smooch laughed quietly.

"Awwwww heck, I am too!" Parsley moaned. "What am I going to do? I've just put a deposit on an ex-army Unimog, I can't be buying books too, I'll be skint and living a low-life instead of a high-life in my epically epic new Unimog!" 

"But dude mew can't hide from Amber fureffur, she'll ambush mew when mew're in the litter box!" Smooch began to chuckle.

"Oh no, mew're kidding me?" Parsley groaned.

"Nope, I kid not, one time she ambushed Basil, he went mental, there was litter effurywhere!" Smooch began to laugh.

"Why did she ambush Basil?" Parsley asked.

"Because she needed cash!" Smooch laughed loudly. "Why do mew think she does pole dancing on Fridays and Caturdays, to earn cash fur books!"

"Well she's got her own cash then!" Parsley let out a sigh of relief.

"Nope dude, she spends that the minute she finishes her shifts, why do mew think there's an Amazon delivery most days?" Smooch replied.

"I thought that was cat-food and rations fur the bunker!" Parsley said.

 "Nope it's Amber's book addiction," Smooch grinned.

Parsley shook his head in dismay. "Dude she needs an intervention and quick!"

Suddenly there was a bumping sound above them.  Parsley squashed his paw offur Smooch's mouth to muffle the laughter.

"Shhhhhhhhh!" Parsley hissed. "Amber's coming down the stairs."

*    *    *

"Parsley! Parsley!  Come out, come out whereffur mew are!" I trilled in my most genial tone as I descended the stairs. [Though to be honest it sounded really, really creepy and I actually scared the bejeezus out of myself fur second!]

The house was stony silent as I hit rock bottom in the hall, and then I heard a strange noise coming from under the stairs, padding to the door I furry carefully hooked my paw around the edge of the door and pulled it open.  The soft hall light illuminated two pairs of startled eyes [vishus deer caught in headlights startled], staring straight at me from the coal-black gloom within.

"Oh there mew are Parsley," I trilled again. "Can I just..."

There was a flash of black fur as Parsley hurtled through the door and was gone.

Smoochie was grinning like a Cheshire cat as he ambled out at a rather leisurely pace.

"Hey Amber!" he smirked. "Bought any good books lately?"

"Well I would do if I could get any cash!" I replied haughtily.

"Purrhaps mew should consider taking more shifts at the club then!" he chuckled.

"And cut down on my reading time, are mew insane?" I shot back.

"Well mew either do more shifts and get more cash or keep doing what mew're doing and have no new books!"

To be continued....

Now I think it's time to share this weeks book.

Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:

Everyone is snapping selfies and cats are no exception! From the sublime to the ridiculous, this book collects the best photos of felines who have taken the selfie craze into their own paws.

As mew can see we all loved this book, some of the selfies are absolutely hilarious.

If mew need a chuckle in your life, then I heartily recommend this little book of laughs!

That looks like a cute book. I think the PA is being very unfair, you should be able to have as many books as you want. XO

Lone Star Cats said...

It looks like a fun book!

Summer said...

Sparkle had a credit card! It was actually an employee card for my human's business - the only way Sparkle could write Amazon reviews was to have a credit card on file. For some reason, I have not been awarded the same favor.

Bionic Basil said...

Hiya all at 15&meowing, isn't she just being so unfair, and I NEED those books, like really really NEED them! MOL purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Sheltie Times said...

Looks like you've got some great books. We like Mom's audio book collection.

The Swiss Cats said...

That sounds like a fun book ! Purrs

Valentine said...

Amber, maybe you could apply for your own credit cards. And notice I say "cards" instead of "card"! Tee he hee! I luv a girl kitty that is a well read. With 27 books though to read, will you have time to dance?! Paw waves!

Eastside Cats said...

Since you've already got the Audible subscription, just get the books in listen-to format, Amber!

Juliana Veenis said...

I get your pain Amber (being a book worm or should I say book cat myself), when you want a new book or three or more, we should always be able to just get them. A book was actually how I found your pawsome blog. It was the furry pawsome book, Black Cats, and just found your review on it. Definitely worth five paws!!!! And can I say that I felt a quick bond with Smoochie being that I'm a fellow tripod. You can't get a more pawsome kitty like me, being black and a tripod. Plus my meowmy feels for your PA because when I first became a tripod I would still try to go adventuring. I would be defending my back yard from feral invaders and would chase them under the fence and put the yard but couldn't get back home because of not having two back legs. The first time it happened my meowmy had to sneak over her neighbor's back fence, grab me and sneak back over being that it was 2 in the am. Good thing she can't sleep unless I'm next to her and kept calling till she heard my quiet meows. Unfortunately the next time I tried this there wasn't the convienate ladder to get over the neighbor's fence (guess he moved it thinking it was a thief in his yard and not my meowmy). So she had to make the hole larger and drag me under. That was the end of my adventure days but I'm just glad I'm spoiled with love and not on the mean streets of California anymore. Any who totally adore your pawsome blog, keep up the good work😸

The Island Cats said...

Amber, it's time for you to get your own credit card!

NC Sue said...

Thank you for sharing with us at Your kitties are beautiful!

edie said...

Amber, maybe you could sell a little catnip on the side. Is it legal where you live? I wouldn't want you to get into trouble.

meowmeowmans said...

Cat Selfies looks like such a fun book! Speaking of books ... Amber, we sure hope you figure something out so you can buy lots more of them!

Bionic Basil said...

Hi Athena and Marie, OMC it does look just like mew! purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Hey guys, oh audio books are my fav too, lie back and listen! MOL purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Hiya Swiss Cats, it is really fun! purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Hi Valentine, oh my what a totally fabulous idea, thank mew so much I'll go apply now! Oh I can manage 2 evening a week, but any more than that and my reading time is severely cut short, which is a HUGE no no! MOL purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Hey guys, my furst option is always an audio book but a lot of authors haven't got their books narrated, so I have to go back to the real thing! MOL purrs Amber xox

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Amber, you know that annoying junk mail that sometimes comes in the post? If you intercept it there may be offers for credit cards amongst it.Fill in the PA's details get someone to pop it in the post for you, and hey presto, you have your very own credit card. The PA will think it is one of hers and pay the bill every month. Mission accomplished.
That sounds like a great book. I love seeing cat selfies.

Bionic Basil said...

Hi Juliana, mew're absolutely right, we should have books on tap, whenever and wherever we want them! MOL Oh the Black cats book is just great, my Brofur Parsley features in it, he's the one wearing a tie. Oh wow mew're a tripawed too, Smoochie sends oodles purrs and knows exactly what mew mean about trying to get offur the fence, and the P.A. has to rescue him too! So lovely that mew found our blog, do come back and if mew have a blog, purrlease let us know so we can add mew to our Pawesome Blog Directory. purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Hey Island Cats, I'm applying fur one today, no more messing about! MOL purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Anytime Sue, and thank mew fur hosting! purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Hi Edie, oh yes we do grow our own, hmmmm maybe being a catnip dealer would help my immediate cash flow, thanks fur the fab idea! purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Hey guys, oh mew too, I'm applying fur my own credit card and becoming a catnip dealer to get funds! MOL purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Hi guys, oh wow what a brilliant idea, mew are fabulous *MUWAH* I'm off to check today's mail! MOL purrs Amber xox

Robin said...

Oh, Amber. It sounds like you are going to have to find some new ways to raise money for your books. Maybe some of the other kitties would pay you to do their chores. The selfie book looks like a lot of fun! Manna and Dexter love to take selfies (so long as I am not in them).

Erin the Cat said...

Amber, dude you need to publish your own books rather than buy, that way you can review them for free. Maybe you could do one call Pole Dancing my way, or How to extract some cash from your family and live to tell the tail. Mol
Toodle pips and purrs

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

You might be able to pick up all the furs that get put down and left on evfurrything and make them into little furry creatures to sell. Or spin them into some soft yarn to make knitted or crocheted critters. Peeps would love those! Or look for dust bunnies under the furniture...who wouldn't want a cute lil bunny?! Do you think anyfur would want to have paw-natured selfies sent to them for a wee know; a printed signed with my paw selfie from the furmouse Miss Amber?

Bionic Basil said...

Oh Robin... woe is me, if I take on any more duties then my reading time will be zero! MOL oh I love selfies without any of the other B Team impeding on my magnificence! MOL purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

MOL Erin, mew are so funny, but a pole dancing tutorial could pave the way fur some much needed funding! MOL purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Hey Pipo, oh if cat fur were currency we'd be gazillionaires, the P.A. has always said that! MOL But I'm really liking your crafting ideas, absolutely brilliant and signed pics of yours truly, thank mew fur shining a little ray of hope my way! purrs Amber xox

Bionic Basil said...

Tabbies dudes, your comment got spammed by blogger!!!! Don't wurry we've written a really stern letter complaining most vehemently that this is not on! MANY APOLOGIES DUDES AND MISS DAI$Y!!! XOX
